Our Miami Visit!

7/24/14


For this year, our family went vacation to Florida for 2 weeks, and of course no vacation without the beach ( at least that how we feel ) we spent four days at the popular South Beach in Miami, 4 days at the beautiful and secluded Naples Beach, and we continue the fun at Disney World Orlando for 4 days. It was fun and exciting vacation. And as promise, here are some of the pictures
 that I would love you to see.


Here, just arrived at the airport after 5 hours flight, tired and exhausted but still tried to look fabulous.

Area 31 Restaurant, Miami
Had dinner at one of the popular fine dining in Miami 'Area 31 Restaurant and lounge' at the EPIC HOTEL 16th floor. Very nice restaurant and the view is breathtaking, this is an ideal restaurant for date and night out "hang around" with friends. very nice restaurant and the view is breathtaking, I love the ambience and the food was delicious and also prepared with style but nothing really special about it. 

Epic Kimpton Hotel, Miami

We stayed in Epic Kimpton Hotel in downtown Miami for four days, it is modern, beautiful hotel over looking Biscayne bay. Originally, my husband and I planned to stay in South beach area which is only 7 miles from down town Miami but being over crowded and loud specially at night we decided to rent a car and just stayed at the Miami down town and drove everyday to South beach area. Stayed in Epic Kimpton Hotel was enjoyable, the customer service and the valet was excellent, but  the part that I don't like that we had to pay parking fee $40 to parked our rent a car over night. But over all everything was good.

South Beach

I am sure you read a lot of review about South Beach. And what can I say? It's South Beach: Party beach, sun, shopping, fun, restaurant, food...food...food and never ending nightlife ( thank God...we choose to stayed in Miami at night). I love the vibe, the Art Deco and all the colorful buildings. 
The beach, however... was every disappointing, tons of seaweed, and I was a bit hesitant to go on the water and swim while surrounding with overwhelming amount of seaweed, it looked dirty to me and there was one point that I was so worried that my kids will get tangle with seaweed, but my husband and my kids just jumped on the water so what can't I say? Mommy jump on the water too, I din't want to missed the fun!
And while the beach was disappointing , we did enjoyed  the wonderful garden on the North Beach, while we there the kids play with Peacocks, Ducks, and also Alligator to watch.  My kids really enjoyed the park. 

Ok till next post, darlin!

Introducing a new line from Urban Decay, here's to you the limited edition 'PULP FICTION'
an inspiration from the popular movie on the 90s.In honer of Pulp Fiction 20th anniversary Urban Decay co-founder and chief creative officer Wendy Zomnir Inspired
to produce Pulp Fiction Collection for Fall.

 I'm not going to elaborate more about this product because I'm sure lots of blogger already mention this but I am going to talk about what I like about this collection. Talking about qualities, I given Urban Decay one of the best cosmetic out there. Now, it just the matter of colors...the collection are rather dark and edgy just like the movie, but if anything close to Mrs. Mia Wallace make up look, I would love to give a try...

Ok let's talk about the Eyeshadow,  this one I would love to have it. Has two Brown shade, Black, Blush Pink and off White to give a neutral vibe to the collection, it so much like "the 90s look".
The lipstick is in the dark shade more like a "bloody Red" so does the nail color, I might try the nail polish and the Metal glittery eyeliner ( I have similar one already) but I doubt if I ever wear the lipstick is a bit darker for me, but you never know...I might like it after all,  I just need to give a try, don't you think?!!!

Ok lovelies, what do you think about this collection?

Givenchy Le Rouge in 317 Coral signature-Coral Orange 

Hi darlin...how is your summer so far? I just got back from summer family vacation, although I am so tired and burn ( yes, I spent almost my entire vacation under the sun) and boy....it was great and we had so much fun. I promise you  I will post it on my next post and for now, 
let's talk about my favorite lipstick for this summer.

To be honest I have a lot of lip color more than I can used, but somehow is easy for me to find my favorite lipstick among all others because, usually these are the one that 
I always used for this season. 

It's funny though...I just realize most of my lip color collection consisted of Pink shade, although they are different hues but still in the Pink color family. I had to pushed myself to got out from my comfort zone,  and buy me different shade. So know I have several coral-orange 
on my favorite lipstick collection.

On summer time, usually I like to wear subtle, soft color lipstick, but also colorful, something that says: "it summer time!" although I love pink shade but Coral-Orange is also interesting color for summer. Specially right now, I can see Orange lipstick are everywhere, on the fashion magazine throughout the runway, Coral-Orange shade are "hot" for this season! but still I stay mostly with Pink shade. Well...heart wants what it desire, am I right?!

 Ok, these are my favorite lipstick for this season:
1. Urban Decay Revolution in TURN ON - Rosy Pink
This is my favorite everyday lipstick in therm of quality and color.  Exceptional quality, super creamy lipstick, Thick texture, very pigmented, long lasting and full coverage, which is good for cover all the crack on my lips makes it look silky smooth and moisturize really well.  The color is just perfect for summer, is not over the top pink, and suitable for everyday use. I can use this for day time and with a smoky eye, this would be nice on the night out with friends.

2. Givenchy Le Rouge in 317 Coral signature-Coral Orange 
I has such hard time to pick an Orange-Coral shade lipstick, most of the color couldn't live up of my expectation, is always " to light or to dark" this one is no exception, to be honest I am not crazy for this color at first, but when I put it on it looks so nice and glamour, leathery matte and long lasting. This is the kind of lipstick that definitely will attract a lot of attention. And the best part of it: is day to night color.  The down side is little bit dry on me so I put on butter lip balm before I applied it on my lips, and for those who have nice moisturize lips who wants dramatic lipstick, this would be nice addition for your collection.

3. Shiseido in Rs306 Titian 
this color is very muted, it has similarity with TURN ON - Rosy Pink, but little bit darker, is really suitable for medium, light and fair skin complexion, good for everyday lipstick and with a bit heavy make up on eyes it would be nice on the night time too. 

Shocking Pink-Watermelon with reddish undertone, and very seductive color.  And also super creamy, full coverage and long lasting. Good for date and night out with friends. I love it when it wears off, living a pink rose stain on my lips. The down side is to glossy for me but for those who love glossy finish then this one is for you. (Check on one of the picture above)

5. Urban Decay in Venom
I bought this last winter but is still one of my favorite lipstick for this summer, the qualities is superb just like 1. Urban Decay Revolution in TURN ON - Rosy Pink, so I am just going to go ahead and talk about the color: is dark plum, Vampy kind of look ( not in the scary way) but also sophisticated. This is really good for night time lipstick but with easy make up on the eyes I'd got away wearing this on the day time also! ( Ana's wearing this lipstick on one of the picture above)

Lats but not least
6. Revlon Color Burst Stain in  Elusive 205
