Eye Makeup Routine & Mini Reviews

(From T-B, L-R) Urban Decay Naked Palette, Clinique Eye Palette (part of Clinique Bonus), No 7 Eyeshadow in Truffle, MAC Eyeshadow in Phloof!, Sleek Pout Polish in Sugar May, Sleek Storm Palette, L'Oreal Superliner, No 7 Extreme Length Mascara, Maybelline Falsies Waterproof Mascara, MAC 263 Small Angle Brush, Eco Tools Eyeshadow Brush, MAC 217 Blending Brush, Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler

Hello!

This is the current everyday eye makeup routine I've been following these past few weeks. Much like the previous foundation routine blogpost, it will also be a mini review of the products incase anyone was interested and wanted another opinion. It looks like a scary amount of products but I promise I'm not the type of girl to just 'cake everything on'. It's just individual eyeshadows within the palettes I use for days I want to make more of an effort than to just sport a no makeup face or just mascara. 

Primer:
I forgot to include my eyeshadow primer in the photos but I use the Urban Decay Primer Potion. Absolutely have to use this if i'm going to be putting on eyeshadow as it creases within the hour without it. Putting this on as a base means it pretty much lasts throughout the day. It has a creamy consistency and dries clear. It also helps to make eyeshadows appear more vibrant.

Eyebrows:
To fill in my eyebrows, I use my MAC 263 Small Angle Brush (£16) with the matte brown eyeshadow in the Sleek Storm palette (£6.49) (2nd row, 5th eyeshadow). As I have dark hair, I've used a powder that is 1-2 shades lighter to make it look more natural. Not quite sure black caterpillars sitting on top of my eyes would be very flattering. The brush could also be used for gel liner too to create cat eye flicks at the end.

Eyeshadows:
For my lid colour, I apply the champagne coloured eyeshadow from my Clinique Eye Palette (free as part of the Clinique Bonus promotion) with my EcoTools Eyeshadow Brush (£5.99) all over my lids. It helps to brighten up my eye area and also acts as the base. I then take the MAC 217 (£16) blending brush and apply the No 7 Eyeshadow in Truffle (£3 after £5 No 7 voucher) in my crease to create a slightly smokey look. I love this eyeshadow, it's a beautiful shimmery taupe colour and doesn't have any fall out. Blends well too! It's also great for a lazy day to just sweep it all over the lid and be done. I then take the 217 and Darkhorse (8th colour in Naked palette)  and apply it to the outer corners of my eyes to create slightly more dimension. I finish it off with blending Buck (5th eyeshadow in Naked palette) lightly above my crease to blend out any harsh edges. I try to use a mix of matte and shimmery eyeshadows as too much shimmer = disco ball. The Naked palette by Urban Decay (£35) is an amazing investment for anyone who uses neutral eyeshadows on a daily basis. It has a mix of very pigmented matte, satin and shimmery finish eyeshadows. The compact design means it's also perfect for travelling - I usually just pop it in my wash bag when i'm packing and every occasion is covered :). It also has a velvet lid and it feels nice to stroke, if you're into that, which i'm.. not. It's just so soft.. Ahem. I then apply MAC Phloof! (£12) to my inner corners just to make my eyes look bigger and brighter. I love saying the word, "phloof!' - it makes me so happy. It's not a powdery eyeshadow and it's beautiful as a highlight as it just 'glows'. Very pretty eyeshadow.

Eyeliner:
This step I sometimes leave as it does make the eyes look a lot more dramatic so if it's just uni, i'll skip it but if i'm going out then voila! I use the L'Oreal Superliner (£6.49) to create a thick flick at the end and extend it right into the inner corner of my eyes. It just helps to make my eyes look bigger and accentuate the almond shape of it. This lasts for the whole day and an affordable alternative to higher end liquid eyeliners. However, the best liquid liner is definitely the Illamasqua Precision Ink (£17) also and that's an amazing eye liner - it doesn't market it as waterproof but i've found that even if it rains (or someone has thrown a bucket of water onto your face, no idea why but they might), the eyeliner doesn't run or smudge. Definitely recommend it.

Curling Eyelashes and Mascara:
I finish the whole thing by curling my eyelashes with the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler (£20) and use the Maybelline Falsies mascara (£7.99) to hold the curl. The Shu Uemura is the only eyelash curler I've tried that doesn't pinch your eyelids. I used to use one I found in Boots and it was agony if your eyelids got caught in it. Ouchy. This eyelash curler is especially popular in Asia as the design of it means it adapts to Asian eyes too. Yay! Maybelline Falsies is a good mascara if you want mostly volume and a bit of length. I like to layer mascaras so I use the No 7 Extreme Length (£12.50) mascara with it. This is a fairly new addition as it's actually my sister's but she never used it. If you were to use it by itself, you'd get length and a natural day-time look. I just layer it to give my lashes more length as they're asian lashes so that means it's severely lacking in the length department. Boo.

Lips:
I obviously don't put this anywhere near my eyes, but thought I'd include a lip product. The Sleek Pout Polish Lip Conditioner in Sugar May has been a recent favourite. I forgot about it for a while and randomly found it in one of my bags and it's just a beautiful peachy colour. It has more of a lip gloss consistency but it's not sticky at all. As it's marketed as a lip conditioner, it is essentially a tinted lip balm. Upon application, it's just a sheer wash of colour but it can be built up for more of an intense lip colour. Don't wear this if you've got your hair down and it's windy outside. Walking with a heavy bag and plastic bags full of food with hair stuck to your lips is not a good look. It also gets you very annoyed very fast.

Phew! That's it.

 I don't do this every single day but if i'm wearing eyeshadow during the day, this tends to be the routine that I'd follow. It sounds like it takes forever but usually takes 10 minutes at the most. On other days, it's just no makeup or just mascara - it all depends on time and what TV show I've recently watched. Silly, isn't it? If it's just Gossip Girl or Vampire Diaries, I keep it quite tame but if it's the Kardashians, something about the show just makes me want to make myself look like a drag queen and make my eyes super smoky. TV has a bad influence on me and i've also realised how sad I now seem so I'll end this post!

Hope this super rambly post has been somewhat useful and you're all enjoying your weekend. It's meant to be snowing tomorrow and i'm crossing my fingers that it doesn't. I start my second semester of uni on Monday so I'd prefer not to be skidding and slipping all the way there. Wrap up warm :).

Hope you're all well!

Foundation Routine & Mini Reviews

(From L-R, CHANEL VITALUMIÈRE  Foundation, 17 Pressed Powder, Vivo Baked Blush in Peaches and Cream, Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer, QVS Foundation Brush, MAC 109 Small Contour Brush and ELF Powder Brush)

Hello!

As you can see from the products shown in the picture above, these products form my normal foundation routine. I don't wear make up on a daily basis but if i was going out, i'd be wearing this on my face. I thought I'd also create mini reviews for the products too as i've used them all for at least a month in case any of you were interested in the products and wanted another opinion. 


CHANEL VITALUMIERE FOUNDATION
Apart from a bit of redness on my cheeks, i would say that i've got quite good skin so i never really use or need full coverage foundation. I hate the thick and cakey feel it leaves when it sets on top of the skin and the matte finish, horrible stuff. The Chanel Vitalumiere is perfect. It offers a light-medium coverage, has a dewy natural finish, and just makes your skin look radiant but yet still feel like your own skin. It's pricey at £33 but it's the best foundation i've tried. I bought it back in July and i'm nearly out of it so it's lasted me well over 6 months - a little goes a long way. I'm intrigued in the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua as that's targeted as a 'second skin' foundation so that may be next. Ahh Chanel.


Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer
I like to use the Lasting Perfection Concealer (£4.19) for days when I want to cover under eye dark circles or blemishes. It's a thicker formulation than the foundation so offers more coverage for any problem areas. Again, a little goes a long way and although it has more of a thicker consistency, it doesn't cake under the eyes. I did use either the MAC Studio Finish Concealer (£13) or BeneFit Boing Concealer (£16.50) before this and found that although they concealed blemishes well, it often highlighted dry areas and left a cakey look. They both retail for around £10 more than the Collection 2000 too, so if you were considering any of those higher-end products, try this product first!


17 Pressed Powder 
I then set my foundation with the 17 Pressed Powder that retails for £3.99 at Boots. It's a fantastic product for the price and does what you'd expect it to do but it doesn't last the whole day. It also offers a very natural finish on the skin but I'm tempted to try either the Sleek Luminous Pressed Powder after this or go back to my all-time favourite MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural. I'm absolutely in love with the MAC MSFs and have been through 3 in the past, but due to the price changes - I don't think I can justify £20.50 for the powder if it's not a necessity. Boo to MAC. :(


VIVO Baked Blush
The VIVO Baked Blush has been a recent purchase and favourite. It's available in the larger Tesco stores for only £4. The design is very similar to the MAC Mineralize Blushes (£19) and performs just as well. The shade I have in the picture is Peaches and Cream (Shade 1) and it's a very warm peach toned blush. It's shimmery but doesn't have any form of glitter in the product. When applied, it gives off a very pretty 'glow' - I've got medium tan skin and peachy blushes always compliments it well. I wouldn't normally pick up a blush from a supermarket, but may look into this brand more! 


Face Makeup Brushes
The QVS foundation brush is just a standard foundation brush. It retails for £4.99 at Superdrug. I use various types of foundation brushes depending on what finish I want or what foundation it is: the MAC 187 (£32.50) is good for summer when I want minimal amounts of products on my face. A lot of people rave about the MAC 109 brush (£26) for liquid foundation but I can't get over the shedding this brush has. Bleugh. I either use the 109 or MAC 168 (£26) for brush/blonzer. It contours the cheeks well and also distributes the right amount of product. Lastly, the ELF powder brush (£3.50) is an amazing multi-tasking brush. I have 2 and it has so many different uses. It's very soft and more dense than the 187 for liquid foundation if you require a heavier coverage. It's also amazing for powders, blushes and bronzers. All round good brush that every one should own. :)

Phew! That's it.

I hope this post has been somewhat useful to anyone who was interested in the products and wondered how it worked on other people. I change up my foundation routine every few months or so to use up other products or try out new ones, but i'm very impressed with the products i'm using right now. I think i'll post my eye makeup routine in the next few days, so hope that will be useful also! 


Hope you're all having a lovely day :)

LOOKBOOK: Happy Chinese New Year!

shirt - h&m
shorts - h&m
shoes - topshop
tights - primark
watch - aldo
evil eye ring - topshop
gold necklace - topshop

hello!

first of all, 恭喜發財,利是逗來;)! 大家萬事如意, 身体健康, 如意吉祥! in other words, Happy Chinese New Year to you all! it's the Year of the Dragon and wishing it'll bring you all happiness, health, good luck and prosperity. i don't have a large family here so we've never properly celebrated it but it's still nice to spread the good messages and cheer! going to a Chinese restaurant tonight and it's meant to be amazing so i'm excited. they have a dimsum bar, a sushi bar and teriyaki too. nomnomnom. i  predict that i'll end up looking like a dumpling by the time i leave that place. ehh, you win some, you dim sum (totally stole that from David & Goliath - i need that shirt in my life). 

decided to mix up my outfit. this shirt isn't actually mine and i stole it from Jord. i really need to get a light blue shirt of my own as i have a million ideas on how to style it. as it's a men's shirt, it's a lot baggier compared to it being of a slimmer fit. it makes it look more casual for daywear. it could look a lot more formal if it was buttoned all the way up and tucked into the black shorts; i just left it untucked to look more laid-back. the heart suspender tights may be a bit marmite to some of you, but i love how it adds a touch femininity to the outfit. as the shirt is of a looser fit, the tights help to balance it all out. i paired it with the studded shoes from Topshop. i don't wear them as often as i would like to; the weather's not been great but they'll be perfect for spring and summer. so comfortable and beautiful to look at. i didn't wear my usual jewellery, i wanted to keep it looking simple so wore my watch from Aldo, gold necklace and evil eye ring. i never look at the time on my watch, but it makes me look smart muahha. i really should start wearing other jewellery pieces seeing as i've managed to hoard quite a collection but i'm obsessed with these pieces right now. 

i'm going into central London tomorrow and excited to act as a tourist again. i love the underground and the atmosphere the city gives out. i wouldn't want to live there again though. i was born in London and spent about 6 years of my life living in central London before we moved to a much quieter part of the country. from what i remember, it was way too hectic to be living there, but i do enjoy day trips to fully appreciate the experience. excited for tomorrow. planning my outfit in my head so hopefully there will be an outfit post in the next few days. 


half an hour left 'til we're leaving to go to the Chinese. yumyumyum!

hope you're all having a lovely day!

LOOKBOOK: Aztec Peg Trousers

top - topshop
trousers - asos
boots - local boutique
evil eye ring - topshop
flower ring - vintage
pearl ring - gift
owl ring - topshop
wooden all saints bracelets - eBay
pandora bracelet - pandora
gold necklace - topshop

hello!

three posts in a week, yay! the Man United match is currently on so whilst the guys are shouting at the screen and discussing football tactics, i decided to save the blogging 'til now accompanied with a packet of wine gums and peach loops (extra fruity) - yum. this is the outfit that i wore yesterday and i actually really love it. i wore this top in the last outfit post as i was originally planning on wearing a black scoop neck with this but realised that i didn't have it, and had to improvise. it just proves how versatile this top is and i'm glad i have it.

the trousers were mentioned in my haul video and i didn't get to show what they looked like on, so voila! the pictures don't show exactly how high-waisted they are but it makes my legs look so much longer than they actually are (short and stumpy, boo). i am in love with the aztec print and the fit of it (baggy but not in a 'clown pants' kind of way, but a bit... edgy?). they are currently on sale for £14 from ASOS and if any of you are interested, i urge you to get them. they're comfortable and perfect for all seasons - i can't wait to wear this with a bandeau top during the summer with some sandals/wedges. i toughened it up with my military boots and i like the combination of them both. the bottom of the trousers narrows down once it reaches the ankles, but with these boots - the bagginess is emphasised more and creates this interesting structure which i like.

usual jewellery, i don't think i'll be switching anytime soon. i like mixing metals with the gold and silver jewellery and also mixing girly pieces with 'weird' pieces such as the evil eye ring.


hair was in an absolute mess, left it to dry naturally and didn't bother straightening/curling it. i later shoved it up in a top knot and i really love how different the outfit looks with just a different hairstyle. i tweeted a picture i took on instagram so forgive the quality of it as this was taken at around 10pm. this picture gives more of an idea of how high-waisted the trousers are. i feel like the top knot gives the outfit more of a 'clean', 'smart', and 'sophisticated' look. the messy, long hair made it look more casual and relaxed so different hairstyles = different occasions and purposes of the outfits.

on a completely unrelated note, i've been catching up on Chuck and just finished watched episode 10. waiting to watch episode 11 in a few hours and although i'm excited, i'm so sad as it's coming to an end :(. this season has been absolutely amazing. i'm actually devastated it's the final season as everything about the show is perfect and i wish it could carry on forever and ever. does anyone else watch Chuck?

i uploaded a video of this outfit on my channel too if any of you are interested!

hope you guys are having a lovely weekend!

LOOKBOOK: Fur Stole (Too Cold Indoors)


top: topshop £14
riding pants: h&m £15
belt: primark £1.50 (?)
fur stole: h&m £13
gold/black necklace: topshop £1.40 (in sale)
wooden all saints bracelets: eBay £1.50 each
pearl ring: present
owl ring: topshop (years ago)
flower ring: vintage £3.50
evil eye ring: topshop £5

hello!

back again with another outfit of the day! really getting back into blogging again so will try and find any excuse to, hence this post. bit of a plain outfit but i'm obsessed with everything that i'm wearing in the photos. the white, slouchy, and slightly bat-wing top is from Topshop and it's the softest and lightest top i own. i bought it in a grey colour too and i'm so gutted that i didn't get the purple and coral! i don't usually buy the same tops in different colours but these are amazing. they're versatile, perfect for layering and i could sleep in them. i won't, but i could.

the riding pants are from H&M and they're everywhere right now, i know American Apparel are selling them for around the £60-£70 mark but why pay that much, when i'm perfectly OK with mine for £15? they're very stretchy (but fitting), thicker than leggings but lighter than jeans, and also very flattering. recommend. 

have been looking for this fur stole for the longest time and fate bought us together, because we're now lovers. before this winter, i've never really liked fur - not quite sure what's changed but i'm in love with this piece. it keeps you SO warm and literally goes with everything, and makes any outfit look a lot more put together than it actually is. i like to pair it over coats and jackets too. this over a trench coat completely changes the way it looks and i like adding a twist to the classic design (will snap up a photo to post on here in the next few days). 

also shoved my hair up as i'm really not liking my fringe or hair at the moment. was nice to keep it out of my face although i now look like a spam head. remember that game during middle school? SPAM! just me? ok. i never really shove it up when there's other people around as i think it makes me look like a boy or showcase a big forehead. 2012 will be the year for experimentation though so yaknow, be nice! :)

love the jewellery! they're all recent purchases and i'm back in the 'shove all my jewellery on and put all da ringzz on all da fingerzzz' phase again. i'm a very indecisive person so the less decisions i have to make, the better. i've reversed the gold necklace around so a bit of the black belly (tehe, like a snake) is showing and i like how it makes it look a lot less blingy with the fur. there's experimenting, and then there's looking.. ahem. not that you can see but i'm slightly proud of my eye makeup today. i've made your day with this fact, haven't i? i'm contemplating whether or not to purchase Benefit 'They're Real!' mascara. it's got really good reviews, but most mascaras just simply don't do a lot for my asian lashes boohoo. don't want to spend £18.50 only for it to be the same as a drugstore one. opinions please! 

i haven't been doing a lot these past few days; i've completed all my coursework for uni and handed that all in so after 3 very stressful weeks, i'm really enjoying just relaxing and doing... nothing. my body's exhausted and catching up on youtube/blogs and eating junk food is making me very happy. having fish and chips/paella for dinner then going to watch a film with some people from Jord's uni (again, fantastic things i've told you that have totally made your day, you welcome). obsessed with Temple Run again, liked it back in october and like it again now. i've come to the conclusion that i shouldn't really play games very much as i get way too competitive. bad trait. going to end this now before your eyes get too tired, another rambly post!


hope you're all having a lovely day!
link me to any blogs/youtube channels you have, would be nice to have a read :)!

LOOKBOOK: PIKASHU


hello!

so.. that's my outfit for today. i'm not even joking, from 3pm onwards, i decided to just climb into this onesie and turn into.. PIKASHU. play on words makes me so happy. it's the most comfortable thing i own and i love it! it even has a tail!!! i've always wanted a tail, imagine if humans had tails. ahhh! 

but if you wanted more of a normal outfit of the day, this is what i wore a few hours before:


top: topshop £14
shorts: h&m £20
cardigan: new look £20
leopard headband: christmas present (miss selfridge)
nails: revlon facets of fuschia £6.49
rings: pearl ring from Jord, vintage flower ring £3.50, topshop eye ring (love) £5
watch: aldo £28
wooden all saints bracelets: ebay £1.50 each
bracelet and charms: pandora (presents) yayayay

this was a 'throw something random on as i can't wear any of my new clothes until i've filmed my haul video' kinda outfit but it was very comfortable to lounge around in. my hair was in a bit of a mess so i decided to make it look less offensive by putting on this beautiful leopard headband. i love it so much! it's marmite as you may hate the headband in which case, it would be offensive to you, but, i love it.

absolutely love this nail polish! i've wanted it for the longest time and it was always sold out.. until now! it's beautiful and took 2 coats for it to be opaque. purchased 2 new bits of jewellery yesterday too, i'm a sucker for rings (especially from topshop) and i'm absolutely in love with these two. the flower ring was from a beautiful vintage shop called 'marjoriedoovintage'. if anyone of you live near/in Coventry and into vintage clothing then please do check it out, it's amazing and the prices (compared to most of the vintage shops i've been in) are amazing also! the eye ring is from topshop for £5. i've wanted it since summer and it was never in the shops when i've searched for it, until yesterday. it looks really realistic and a bit freaky - but that's why i love it.

in the middle of uploading a youtube video (finally)! i've been away for 2 months due to uni work and deadlines, it's all done and out of the way now though so i'm back! i've missed uploading videos so much. i'll update this post in a few hours with the link to the video if you're interested, if not, find it on http://www.youtube.com/shulikesclothes

EDIT: here it is! looking like ALI SHU after i took the hood off! oh well, comfycomfycomfy. enjoy!


hope you've had a lovely day and evening!

LOOKBOOK: Mission Impossible

Jacket - Topshop
Top - Topshop
Shorts - H&M
Boots - Boutique
Bag - Present
Nails - Collection 2000 Blue Hawaii and Technic Carnival

haiiii!

i'm on the roll with blogging right now although this is mainly due to me being the queen of procrastination and avoiding revision for my exam next week, oops. to celebrate Jord (the boyfy) installing his central locking system to his Austin Mini today (a clap and a dance for me as his Christmas present seems to have gone down well ;)) we decided to go for a drive and watch the new Mission Impossible film! i haven't watched any of them before but may start to after today! i absolutely love films to do with spies, quick thinking and on the spot plans so loved this one, definitely recommend it if you haven't seen it! i even played my 'spy music' playlist on the journey back. not sure if i should've included that embarrassing fact but i wonder if anyone else does this, listen to 'spy' music and pretend you're some amazing acrobatic and flexible ninja person. i do!

this was a 'throw the first things i find in my wardrobe on' type of outfit and i actually really like it! my hair was just shoved up as i was revising a few hours before we went out (see, i'm kinda a good student..) and for the first time in a long, long time.. my sisters even complimented me! usually, whenever i've got my hair shoved up and a quick outfit change, i get a 'the hairstyle doesn't really suit you.. and the outfit is alright..' when i ask for their opinions so i must've done something right today :)

i've got my all-time favourite bag with me and I'M SO HAPPY I'VE FINALLY GOT IT (thanks Jord eeeep)! this bag has been everywhere in the beauty/fashion blogging world and i've been lusting after this for the longest time. although it didn't cost a lot, being a poor student - i couldn't justify another bag as i have quite the collection now so imagine my happiness when he surprised me with this! it's just absolutely amazing and goes with everything, yayayay!

oooh also, the nails, the nails! i was meant to paint the rainbow glitter topcoat over my blue nails for New Year's but didn't have the time so did it whilst getting ready today! it's a dupe for the OPI Rainbow Collection polish from the Muppets holiday collection and purchased it from llymlrs. it's so beautiful and i can't stop staring at them! it did need about 4 coats to get it like this and the picture really does not do it justice but think sparkles. lots and lots of sparkles.

enough of the rambling and hope you like this post. i really am trying to aim for at least a blogpost a week, and a video a week (although YouTube will have to wait another week 'til i've got uni deadlines out of the way)! thanks lots to Jordan for always being the cameraman for my blog and YouTube, and for helping me out with editing today too!

hope you're all well!

LOOKBOOK: New Year's Eve

haiiiiii!

i haven't updated this in ages but i hope all of you have had a lovely Christmas (if you celebrate it, if not, i hope you had a lovely time during the holidays), and New Year's! 2012 now.. woah. one of my new year's resolutions is to update this blog and my channel a lot more often, so expect to see a lot more outfit posts!

let's start off with one right now :)
this is what i wore on New Year's Eve:


this dress was purchased from asos.com and i got it on sale (dance and a clap please), if you're interested, you can find the dress here in black, blue or a mink colour! it was a bit daring for me with the cut outs as normally, it wouldn't've been something i'd wear but it was new year's eve and i want to be a lot more body confident so what the heck! the diet starts now with my holiday in July.. byebye crisps and junk!

i do absolutely love this dress though, everything from the bold colours to the sequin-ness (not a real word but just look at the sequins and forget about that)! i think it'll be versatile for all year round too so it definitely won't be the last time i'll be wearing this little number! i wore it with these amazing nude heels from New Look! they're actually my sister's but we're the same shoe size and pretty much share our wardrobes, hurrah! was contemplating this or black wedges but the nude shoes makes my legs look longer than they actually are and doesn't take any attention away from the dress itself. they're not shown in these photos those as i was a silly, but you can admire the fact that my toe nails match my dress? yeah? no? ok 

i kept the accessories very simple so only had pearl earrings, a sparkly bracelet and my usual pearl ring and owl ring! hair was curled with the BaByliss conical wand (amazing) and the front sections were gripped back! Make-up was a lot of 'half baked' eyeshadow smoked out with 'dark horse' eyeshadow from the Urban Decay Naked palette with the Eylure Cheryl false eyelashes and nude lips!

shall now share a few photos from last night!



we (Jord and I) went over to a friend's house for dinner then celebrations afterwards! the dinner was actually amazing and the amount of effort they put into this dinner absolutely paid off as it was perfect! they dressed up in sombrero hats, fake moustaches and came out with plates of Mexican food shaking their maracas to Mexican music! i would attach the image but i'm not sure whether they'd want me to share but just be assured that the dinner couldn't've gone more perfect! we had cake for dessert and lots of snacks, homemade cocktails and sparklers after :)

was such a perfecto night to bring in the New Year's and i'm so thankful to spend it with such lovely people! what did you guys do during New Year's?! i'll stop rambling now and end this post with the world's best dog.. Bud's not even my dog but my boyfriend's but shhhh :)
