Weekly Photo Roundup #7

I had my 30th birthday party last Saturday. A family friend made a cake for me, which I wasn’t expecting. She is so good at cakes! She makes and decorates them herself. It was red velvet and had a whipped cream icing, which is my favorite. I don’t like the really sweet icings. However, I discovered that my body can’t handle eating stuff like that too well anymore. It seems like anything that ends in ‘cream’ (whipped cream, sour cream, ice cream, for example) does a number on my stomach. The cake was so delicious though. It was worth it. We called it the rave cake. As some of you know, if you’ve been reading, I was in the rave scene years back. Although I don’t rave anymore, it still has a special place in my heart. Plus, I still love anything neon and fluorescent.

30

Today is my birthday! I’m officially 30 now, which means I’m no longer in my 20’s. It feels a bit weird! I do think we put a bit more emphasis on age than necessary sometimes. I mean, it’s not like I really changed or aged much between yesterday when I was still in my 20’s and today. It’s still a bit of a surreal feeling though.

After a two month period, I have received another VoxBox from Influenster. This time it’s the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Derm Intensives box, and I think it was worth the wait. I love skincare products, and I was excited to see that the two products in this box include serums with Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin C, which are important ingredients for your skin.

Makeup Look: Stargazer

When I posted my latest BH Cosmetics haul post, I mentioned I wanted to do some makeup looks using my new palettes. I haven’t created any looks with the Foil Eyes palette yet, but yesterday I finally got around to creating a look using the Aurora Lights palette. That was my main source for the entire look. I did use the BH Cosmetics Naturally Flawless foundation (also featured in my haul post), Beach Rose blush from Pixi by Petra, and mascara from Grande Cosmetics. I used the Aurora Lights palette for both the eyes and lips. Although I did add a clear gloss over top of my lips in the last two photos just to see what it would look like, but I think I liked the look better without the gloss. I used the silver shade in the palette as a highlighter. I just love the bright shimmery colors in this palette. I want to create some more looks soon.
