Nasty Gal Ripped Skirt

Today, is a happy day, can you guess why? I can finally wear this cute ripped skirt from #nastygal. I bought this #rippedskirt eight months ago, and could not for the life of me, fit into it! First, my thighs were too big because of Crossfit. After I stopped working out and all the muscle went away, the skirt slowly but surely went past my thighs and said hello to my WAIST–I was halfway there (haha). I said to myself that I would eventually fit into it, but I didn’t know when. When I finally decided to join Nutrisystem and dropped #9 pounds, I was able to close all the buttons (lol). It certainly feels like a BIG accomplishment. This skirt is currently out of stock, but I will link it down below so whenever it comes back, you’ll be the first to know. Just make sure to click on that waitlist button. SMLXL SMLXL SMLXL SMLXL SMLXL SMLXL SMLXL SMLXL SMLXL SMLXL


Hello, and welcome back! If you follow me on Snapchat, then you already know that I’ve just started the Nutrisystem diet! Yes, the Nutrisystem diet and I’m excited to share this journey with you all. I heard of Nutrisystem through my best friend, Jessica. Just like any girl, she was struggling to lose weight, and she was selected to participate in an awesome journey with Nutrisystem. I can’t speak too much about it, so I’ll leave it at that. After seeing her progress in the last couple of months, I was inspired by her results. Now, for starters, I do want to say that the reason I started this program wasn’t that I was unhappy or hated myself, but because I wanted to become a healthier me.  Just like any diet, it’s never easy to wake up one day and dive right into it. But I believe with a great attitude and the strengthen to keep pushing, anyone can do it! Consult your doctor to see what plan might work for you. My decision to …

Street Food Cinema – Kung Fu Panda 3

June 25th, 2016 was the perfect day for a movie at the park. Street Food Cinema kicked off the first week of summer with Kung Fu Panda 3 at Westchester Park last night. With the release of Kung Fu Panda 3 on DVD and Blu-rau on Tuesday, June 28, the event had children with smiles on their faces and brought out the inner kid in adults, too. Street Food Cinema was a great time for all ages, offering a wonderful selection of food trucks, live music and a photo booth to remember your experience. Doors opened at 5:30 p.m., and the crowd gathered around the big screen with lounge chairs and blankets, deciding which part of the lawn would be the best to get situated for the rest of night. As more people began to settle in, the veteran movie-goers took out the picnic tables, food and wine to get the night started off right. Street Food Cinema is well-known for their delicious food truck vendors. In accordance with the theme of the movie, they had Asian-inspired cuisine, as …

In a shout out to all the L.A. natives, the Napa Valley E-Auction Launch event took place at the Sofitel Hotel yesterday afternoon, just steps from the most well-known zip code in the world: Beverly Hills 90210.

Chokers by Myra

Good Evening Beauties, Summer is around the corner, so that means cute accessories! I partnered up with Myra Castillo, a self-taught makeup artist, to help showcase her lovely work of art with the world. Now, who’s has gone to their favorite store and found the perfect choker, but it was WAY too expensive? I know I have, so when Myra told me she was creating unique/handmade chokers I was super excited. They are affordable and a lot cuter than the ones I’ve seen. She has always been very crafty, so I knew her chokers would be stylish! There is only one of each, but she can certainly make more if requested. If you are interested in purchasing any of the items above, please contact me or visit her Instagram page @myrapinkshairandmakeup for more information. Meet the Creator Behind the Chokers! Hurry, these babies won’t last too long. -Dawn

Morphe Brushes

Hello and Welcome Back, Okay, so I couldn’t keep this secret to myself, so I had to share my latest obsession. I recently purchased some makeup brushes from none other than Morphe Brushes. I’m completely in love with the material and how it applies my makeup and foundation. I’ve been aching for some M.A.C brushes, but honestly, they are a little out of my budget. So ladies, brace yourselves because Morphe Brushes will save you the $$ and it will get the job done! Associate’s at Morphe mentioned that weekends are the busiest days, so one suggestion is, going during the weekday if you can. There is plenty of brushes to go around, so don’t worry. Let me just mention (lol) I didn’t know what I was looking for, so I felt a little overwhelmed at first. Fortunately for me, the sales associates were extremely accommodating and knowledgeable. I would recommend these brushes to newbies and pro makeup artist, looking for good quality brushes that won’t break the bank! $$$$ -Affordable, Reliable & Perfection !
