I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving with family and friends! If you guys follow my Snapchat (@simply_sona), you probably saw my food baby and how much I ate. Again, I’m grateful to be able to eat delicious meals with the people I love. Now that Thanksgiving is over, Christmas is around the corner and I’m getting a head start on my holiday shopping. For today’s post, I want to share my holiday gift guide to help you get through the shopping chaos, especially since today’s Cyber Monday! Plus, I’ll be giving away all these gifts mentioned in this blog post, so make sure you read to the very end to find out how.
Now that fall season is FINALLY here, I’ve been lusting over all my matte lipsticks. I was excited to find that Laura Mercier released a new set of lipsticks called the Velour Lovers Lip Colour. I purchased four of my favorite shades and thought I’d share with you my thoughts about this collection!
Who’s excited for Thanksgiving this week?! I’m looking forward to seeing all my friends and family this upcoming holiday weekend, and feel extremely grateful for everything that’s happened this year. I’ve had wonderful opportunities and experiences that couldn’t have happened without YOU! Yes you, my lovely subscribers. I’m so thankful to be a part of your life, and I appreciate all your support. But before we get all sappy, I wanted to share with you my Thanksgiving outfits, and hope to inspire you to wear them as well.
Can I just tell you guys how excited I am about this blog post? Lisa Eldridge is by far one of my favorite make-up artists, so I was really excited when I found out about her new book, Face Paint. I’ve always been so inspired by Lisa’s work, and I have learned a lot from her that I’ve applied to my work as a makeup artist. Even when I began making YouTube videos, I had her to look up to for how to make it work. At that point, not a lot of makeup artists were sharing their craft on YouTube, but watching her videos assured me that it was possible.
It’s November guys! Now that Halloween’s over, I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving and spending quality time with my friends and family. Because it’s the holiday season, I’ve been looking for gifts to get for my loved ones. If you guys want a gift guide for Christmas, let me know in the comment section and I can start writing it up! While I was looking, I found some fall favorites for myself and thought I’d share with you what I’ve been loving lately.
The weather has gotten so much cooler, and I’m ready to bring out my sweaters and leather jackets. You can’t tell in the photos, but I was freezing when we were taking these! I know in California, it doesn’t get as cold as anywhere else in the world, but it can get a bit breezy over here.
It’s finally cooled down a bit here in Los Angeles, but we still get some sunshine which I LOVE. I think the weather here allows us to be more flexible with our outfits, and even though I get jealous of places where there’s actual seasons, Los Angeles makes it easier to style clothes. I’m excited to share more fall outfits with you in upcoming posts! But first, I’m about to head out to the Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Launch Party right now, and thought I’d share what I’m wearing to the event.
You guys know that I love my brown and nude eyeshadows, it creates a perfect and subtle smokey eye that’s great for an everyday look. But lately I’ve been itching for some color, so when I saw the Kat Von D Metal Crush Eyeshadows I was SO excited! There’s so many vibrant colors in this collection, that I still can’t decide which ones are my favorites. This collection is definitely for the bold and daring, but if you want to give yourself a unique look, definitely try these shadows out.
Bonjour, my lovely readers! I recently got back from Paris, and it was such a beautiful and exciting place to be! Because I was selected as a winner for Vogue Beauty Challenge (video here), I had the honor of going to Paris Fashion Week, which was extraordinary. Paris is the birthplace of haute couture, and the atmosphere just oozes over-the-top and exquisite fashion. Paris is absolutely the place to go if you want to experience fashion as art, as couture designers just continuously create the most beautiful things you could ever imagine.
