I'm Back!

Monday, June 13, 2016

Wow it has been over a whole year since I've written a blog post for blogger! To make a long boring story short, I reluctantly switched my entire platform over to wordpress and I was not happy there. Blogger is my home and I'm so glad that I didn't decide to delete this all together. I'm excited to get back to blogging and keep you all updated with my life!

Coachella 2015

Wednesday, April 8, 2015

Well, it’s finally here. Festival season is upon us and for me that means Coachella! The main questions I get asked by those who have never attended this life changing event is, “Is it really worth it? Is it all just hype? It’s so expensive…” And to that all I have to say is yes, no, and so?? The Coachella experience is worth every dollar, every sunburn and every aching back from sleeping in a tent. It’s worth the trip, the lost shoes and porta-potty use (ok that part really sucks, but still…) it’s worth it all. It’s an incredible experience that I look forward to all year long and I’m here to tell you that if you’re thinking about going, go. Go with an amazing group of friends, go with plenty of booze, go with an open mind and a friendly attitude. But most importantly go prepared after reading this because I’m going to tell you what I pack to stay cute and fresh during this three day adventure in the California desert.

My Perfect Hair Routine...PERFECT.

My Perfect Hair Routine...PERFECT. by mandyapplemakeup 

Well I did it. After thousands of dollars spent on hair care I can happily say that I have found the perfect routine. Even with all of my desires for change and restlessness I honestly do not see myself ever changing my products. They work in harmony, they smell amazing and my hair has finally got her groove back.

Current Inspiration: Azealia Banks

Sunday, March 15, 2015

I've been into Azealia Banks ever since my friend put on her 212 video while we were getting dressed to go out to a party in 2011. I love that she is herself, unapologetically. She is honest about her feelings about other people as well as spiritual beliefs (if you've seen her instagram lately you know what I'm talking about).

I'm also really into the 90s influence that she adds to her music and style. This video 1991 is so reminiscent of that area and I'm also a little more obsessed with it because the key makeup artist for this video was Cynthia Rivas. She's a MAC Pro artist that I've met and follow her career, she does some amazing work and I really love the looks that she put together for this video. I like the combination of adding a pop of color with a neutral/mauve lip. They're fun but also very wearable and chic.
