Nintendo & E3 Expo 2017!

It was another great time working with Nintendo at E3 for my fourth year!  My, oh, myyyyy how time flies!!!  This was the very first year that E3 became open to the public, and the Los Angeles Convention Center filled with 15,000 more people this year!  Gamers and video game enthusiasts from around the world to hit up the Nintendo booth and play in the tournaments! Always a blast hanging with the voice of Mario, Charles Martinet, anddddd Mario himself!

A small-town girl, Nintendo is a way of lifeeeee for me!!  I tried to match my makeup with my Nintendo nostalgia, and had a hard time deciding between Princess Peach eye makeup or Mario red lipstick.  So I went with Mario red.  Kat Von D’s red liquid lipstick was my go-to choice because it stays put without requiring touch-ups.  I opted for stealth mode skin with Honey Girl Organic’s moisturizer and Wet N Wild Photo Focus Foundation.  I wanted the Mario red lip color to be the focal point of the look, so I kept my eye look super natural with a soft brown shadow swept through the crease, and a few coats of Pacifica Dream Big mascara.

It was such a memorable week and I miss everyone soooooooooo much already!!! Thank you so, so, so much to Nintendo & Lead Detectors for another amazing year!! Much love!!! XO ~Kelle

OOTW & Mulholland Drive!

Coffee black & egg white stripes sounded minimal and comfy for this outfit of the week look.  And let’s mix in some sultry grey skies & some trail trekking.  The skies were gorgeous-ly grey that day for this OOTW fashion video shoot upon the scenic hillside of Mulholland Drive!  Comfort was on my mind for this daytime ensemble.  So I went with a textured & striped top from Zara that I love to swim in (not literally ;),IMG_0432.jpg

& grey suede “Manon” riding boots by Rosegold, to match the weather 🙂IMG_0436.jpgThis look would not have been complete without my Muskoka Nord orange agate fish necklace & Muskoka Nord Teepee choker!  I absolutely love the Native American vibes of these pieces.

Totally off topic, but I also have a thing for Swedish fish.  They are my favorite candy…like…ever!  Maybe someday they will also come out with Irish fish too? :)))))) #anIrishgirlcandreamIMG_0439.jpg

I love the big & chunky pockets on this Zara shirt.  Makes it awesome for holding things like a cell, lip balm, or….swedish fish. heheheeeIMG_0442.jpg

This look can easily be recreated to make it your own with any funk top, blue jeans, black jacket, tall boots & layering jewelry.  The beauty of fashion is that the possibilities are endless!   I hope you guys enjoyed this look and video.  Much love!! xoxo ~KelleIMG_0448.jpg

For my outfit I went with my favorite pair of Rag & Bone skinny jeans, Linea Pelle belt, & J.O.A. top.  I went with sleeked back hair secured in a low bun with Pacifica’s Best Day Ever Style Extend Balm & Göt2B’s Mind Blowing Power Ionic Hairspray.

Sweater Weather OOTW!

The past week in L.A. has been chilly willy!!  I’ve bundled up almost every day this week!  My oversized Theory sweater has been getting a lot of love over the past week and fall months! It’s one of those you-swim-in-it-like-a-fish type sweaters that I find to be the most comfortable to wear.

This outfit would not have been complete without my Paul Green ankle boots.  They have just enough chunky heel to make you feel lifted and are soooo comfortable.

I kept the jewelry look minimal with my Charriol bangles & Stella & Dot tennis bracelet that pretty much stay on my wrist 24-7.  Also, Pink Pewter’s headband hair jewelry is super chic.  They make an array of hair and other jewelry to choose from.

I’ve also been wearing my Guess skinny jeans a lot lately.  They get a lot of love for sure.

Giveaway Winner Announcement, October Favorites, & Drugstore Haul!

Happy Monday, yawls!  In this video I announce the winner of my Pacifica & Miracle Skin Transformer Giveaway!  Congratulations to Kathleen Gereg on winning the giveaway!  I am so excited for you!!  Also included in this video are my October favorites and a drugstore haul.

October Favorites!

I’ll begin by saying that I still can’t get enough of Measurable Difference’s Desert Nights palette!!! It has 3 duo chrome shades & 2 mattes in the most beautiful Fall colors!!

The two matte shades are not as pigmented as the satin shades, however, they are still very wearable and build-able with a primer.  This might just be my favorite palette in all of life!  A great addition to the eye looks I create with this palette, is my new favorite waterline/inner eye area champagne highlight with NYX eyeshadow stick, in the shade: Yogurt!  This beautiful champagne shade pairs nicely with the duochromes.

Also in this vid, I swatch LA Colors $1 Bold Eyes palettes from my drugstore haul. These are definitely worth your buck!! Most of the shades in these palettes are blend-able and buttery.  A few of the shades that are a bit dryer than the more pigmented shades can be built up with a primer.

The LA Colors Full Exposure palette lasted throughout a day of modeling for Corona USA & some of our 80

For this eye look I used LA Colors Bold Eyes Full Exposure palette & NYX waterline pencil in the shade Yogurt

degree LA weather over the weekend! Because it has been warm, I have been rocking my Stila eye pencil, in the shade, Canary, on the upper lash line for an eye-brightening pop of color.

Also, I have been obsessed with my Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer.

It is perfect for pale Fall skin! Since I have dry skin, I have also been loving Ole Henriksen’s Truth Serum & Youth Activating Facial Oil!

The serum & facial oil are decadent, full of Vitamin C, and make my skin brighter & hydrated. Also loving Johnson & Johnson’s Vanilla Oatmeal Baby Lotion as my daytime face & body moisturizer! It was my daily pre-makeup moisturizer throughout October, and has kept my makeup from moving throughout the day without the use of a face primer.  My favorite fragrance has been my Pacifica Dry Roll-On Indian Coconut Nectar Rich Body Oil!  I haven’t really been using it as a body hydration oil, but rather as a roll-on perfume oil lol.  It is my favorite Pacifica fragrance and smells divine!
