Moving my blog

Now that I am done with beauty school and trying to put myself out there career-wise, I decided to move my blog to another website, Lipstick Cafe: Fashion and Beauty.  It just happened to be a website that is mobile-friendly and that I'm able to arrange the layouts more easily.

Legend of Zelda Symphony of the Goddesses at Davies Symphony Hall

Last night, I attended a classical concert at the Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco.  Most of the concerts I have attended in my lifetime were outdoor, alternative music type of concerts. It is nice to go to a seated place for once, especially now that I'm big on personal comfort.

I decided to wear my ASOS shoulders-less black dress and pink flats (we walked quite a bit in the city) to watch the Symphony of the Goddesses. I could have worn my Nintendo licensed garments, but it's not everyday that I get to wear a little black dress! 

 French twist

I also decided to wear my hair in a bouffant with a french twist in the back and a simple smokey-eyed makeup style.  You can't see it through my poor-quality camera, but my hair is actually teal and purple. So I really don't look like a bouge. Hair rollers are great for foundations in updos!

The architecture inside the Davies Symphony Hall looked so beautiful, something about it makes me want to explore every floor level in that  building.

I thought the music was played beautifully, and you do not have to be an avid gamer for this type of concert. If you like classical in general, you would like the soundtrack made for Legend of Zelda. Believe it or not, the ticket was pretty affordable.

Listening to Kero Kero Bonito

Right now I am digging this band called Kero Kero Bonito.  Everything about this band makes me feel sparkly  inside.

Random Phone Photos from May

Isabelle decided to stop just to listen to KK Slider during Mario Kart race.   Flower Shop in San Francisco

Milkshake from Santa Rosa's Flipside   My handsome boyfriend and his new haircut

Hallway in Japantown, SF.   Vintage inspired updo, makeup, and outfit.

I've been dressing so fashionably for the past few months that I haven't been able to find time to record my outfit in any form, because I've been dressing for my beauty college.  Not to mention, I just got a bit of teal high lights several days ago-- and now it's faded! So I have to retouch it again just so I can share my classmate's wonderful hairdo(in my opinion) with you guys.  I don't have much descriptive things to share what I've been up to for the past few months, but I have my Instagram pictures to express that!

Pictures in summary: Neighborhood exploration, a self portrait in a glossy shopping, pretty video game scenes, delicious milkshake, and a fade-style type of haircut I practiced on my boyfriend.

I don't know what is it with me and big hair.  I blame retro films.  I blame Dolly Parton.  I blame all of my old Barbie dolls. I blame Princess Peach. I blame Texas.  Okay, I know the hair pictured above isn't as big as Texas, but it's pretty voluminous on my head-- and I love it. 

There's not a whole lot for me to explain this picture, clearly, it's just another of my ingenue style.  I only just want to thank two of my friends (cosmetology students in training) for putting huge rollers in my head.  I love how my curls felt very light and airy, yet the curling details remained compact. 

Lately in Spring 2015...

I've been soooo preoccupied with beauty school assignments that I have no time to blog from the past several weeks.  Believe me, cosmetology requires loads of study time (learning about chemistry, geometry, design, etc.) but it's a pretty fun subject!  At least I know I will have a stable career to keep my income rolling.

So, I finished my fantasy mannequin for school.  I know the whole deer thing is pretty common throughout youtube, tumblr, and instagram, but I had fun making my own version of this piece. My client (the mannequin) was pretty non-verbal throughout her makeover. 

While I will be updating on a lot of beauty-related stuff,  I won't shy away from fashion either!
