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.

My go-to Nintendo makeup look was created with a pop of red liquid lipstick by Kat Von D and natural eyes with 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

On a complete tangent, I couldn’t leave San Diego without stopping by Mission Bay and Pacific Beach shops. I mentioned a few of my San Diego finds in my latest video!  

Any time I travel I like to pick up a jewelry item and makeup item (or a few makeup items hehe) to remind me of my journeys and of the amazing people I was blessed to meet.  The bracelet wrap is made by a company called Good Works.

The sayings on their bracelets are just amazing!  I also picked up two Revlon creme shadow palettes, the E.L.F. Mad For Matte palette, & Physician’s Formula shimmer shadows palette.  All the shades in each of the palettes will compliment one another nicely, for an array of day and night, warm and cool looks.  The Physician’s Formula palette is gorgeous for that center of the eye, eye-opening shine.  Can’t get enough of the ELF palette.  It is SO good!!!  Wishing everyone a very relaxing Sunday!  Have a great week!

I spoke with over 2,000 professionals from all over the world that stopped by our booth.  We gave away Apple watches all week in our daily and hourly demo giveaways!  Swag and pins were also handed out.  Anyone who received a pin and sported it on their badge got the chance to be randomly selected by Prize Control to win a cool prize!  Winners were surprised with gift cards, GoPro’s, PS4’s, Raspberry Pi’s (not the kind you eat ;), they are credit card computers that plug in to computers), and tons of other cool swag! Three of my winners even came back to thank me that the pins I had given them had won!  What a feeling!! It was amazing to see their faces all lit up!!!!!

Hello, my lovelies! It was a blessing working for Nintendo at the E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo last week! It is my second year working as a Nintendo spokesmodel, and it is always so much fun. What could be better than playing video games on the new 3DS!? Gooooooo Chibi Robo Ziplash! I was literally tethered and padlocked to two Nintendo 3DS’ for the week at Treehouse LIVE; this gamer’s dream! All in all, and from my designing perspective, I would have to say that Yoshi’s Woolly World is the coolest game ever!

Yoshi made of yarn makes me want to get back into crocheting 🙂  I should also mention that Tetris and Super Mario 3 will always be my all-time fave games, and Nintendo nostalgia forever in my heart!
