Cutest bracelets from Opening Ceremony! :F

My sweet-ass bf took me to Opening Ceremony for our One-year Annie yesterday to go shizzopping and of all things I found these, and they made me tremendously happy. Yup! It's all I needed to put a smile on my face. They're 5 bucks a pop! I got the black and green one. :D 

Cheap date, huh? ;D

Yup! That's it for now. I feel a makeup tutorial coming on... yippeee!!!

weekend randoms@renegade craft fair, brooklyn

i went to the Renegade Craft Fair this weekend with the ny family (my bf and our dog :)

basically, if etsy and anthropologie had babies and those babies were on crack... that was rcf. it was a mile long and we literally zipped through and i just snapped away at the places that really caught me eye. sorry the pictures suck i only had my iphone.


this place had a magnifying glass for the figure inside. it was that small.

checkers art. i guess alot of people like that.

peg and awl was definitely in my top 3. teeny tiny books on necklaces so you could write to your beloved. they can then lovingly wear your  whimsical thoughts around their necks. 
or you could just jot notes down if you're a goldfish like me.

 rad bag. out of my price range. tear* but definitely worth the splurge if you can. :)

can't really tell in this pic but this place had an adorable display...

more cute displays...

gorgeous ceramic work...

this place was another top 3 contender... "wood work.." art, jewelry.. they had it all. and all was beautiful.

this one was just too cool for school with all the graphics and artwork: 

my dumby self didn't get the info to this place: every cute-obsessed girl's fantasy land.

...GLITTERRRRRRrrrrrRRrrrRrrr..!!! :D

this is my number one!!!: georgia varidakis jewelry. 
puchased a necklace and earring (just one) bronze cast from coral. i wear it on my left ear and i've received so many compliments i'm growing quite tired of it all. lol! but i lost it a couple days ago and i haven't been able to concentrate since. i felt lost and alone in this world without my beloved little coral earring so we went to brooklyn and hunted her down and mr. bf got me another one. :] 

she's got a gift. coming from a family of jewelers i've seen it all, and it's pretty much all the same shit. not this, my friends. 

 georgia's rad bronze iphone case. rad.

 cute soap display. <3

i saw this old-school printing and immediately thought of my cousin debbie, and how she would wet her pants. she's all about fonts.

it's not a complete day without some adorable puppy time. :)

clever little mugs. why do you look at me.

goodbye. :)

Preview/Backstage on Elle Vietnam

I went to the Hamptons for the first time (hello Ina Garten!!!) to assist Nam Vo on a photoshoot for Elle Vietnam. Worked with: 

Photographer Louis Christopher
Stylist Andrew Holden
Hairstylist Yoichi Tomizawa

The house was gorgeous, the model Milla was adorable (from Silent Agency, Paris), everyone worked their butt off and it was fun with great energy the whole time. Nam worked her magic! She has a wonderful instinct for colors. She did a moody red, gorgeous plum, fire engine red, and pale nude lip with washed out 'dusty' eyes.

The model was growing in her eyebrows and we didn't have a bleaching kit, so we mixed heavily pigmented Concealer with white cream foundation and coated it on the eyebrow with a mascara wand, then powdered and repeated a few times to fake the bleached-out look.

Re-post, but a good post. ;D

What would I do without my beloved Asian Models Blog Page. Whoever you are, we love you.

Here's to models, models, I adore... <3:

Oh, Dinara. How I stop dead in my tracks for your covetous bone structure. 
(Btw this delicious makeup was done by Nam Vo, who I'm assisting tomorrow on an Elle photoshoot in the Hamptons. Yay! Will post later! ;)

And So Young, your luscious platinum locks lock your place in history as the most legit Asian Marilyn ever. We bow down to your porcelain beauty. 
Wide-eyed, doe-eyed, cupid-lipped beauties... how they stop my heart. <3 

Some love love. I love beauty. ;D
