Weekend Recap (Cosmetic Fix + Phantom of the Opera @ Pantages)

Hello my luvlies! Forgive me for not updating my blog regularly and not responding to all comments.  I really miss blog-hopping and checking out what everyone has been up to but I am so tied up with jewelry custom orders (not that I get a lot, I'm just slow) and some personal activities such as watching musicals, attending sewing/cake decorating classes, and watching kdrama (Playful Kiss).  I really dunno what to prioritize! I'm so bad at this!

That won't stop me tho for somehow taking time and letting you into my so-called life...

I finally got NAKED!  Urban Decay Naked Palette that is!  I've been on their waiting list for 2 months and it finally arrived in all it's NAKED glory!

Although I have most of the colors here since I'm an Urban Decay Palette collector, I simply can't resist having them in one go-to palette!  Sorry NARS Best Palette! This will be my daily nude palette for now!  Sign up for their waiting list here to be notified when available:

Since, I haven't posted FOTD in like forever, I decided to do an Old Hollywood/Retro Look with it...

FACE:  Amazing Concealer, MUFE HD Liquid Foundation (base) topped with BareMinerals Matte Foundation
EYES:  UD Naked Palette, MAC Blacktrack Fluidline, Mod Falsies, CG LashBlast Mascara, UD Yeyo Eye Pencil on waterline,
CHEEKS:  MAC Blush of Youth Beauty Powder topped with MAC MSF in Petticoat
LIPS:  Benefit Silk Lip Pencil in Mercy as base, Revlon Matte Lipstick in In the Red, NARS Bloodwork Lipgloss

Same look in different angles...

I wore this look the next day for Phantom of the Opera musical.

Here's my NOTD btw which I call "Dorothy Bows" using OPI Never Lone-done Shopping and 3D Rubber Nail Art Pink Bows...

We watched the Phantom of the Opera at Pantages Theater in Hollywood.  Although I vaguely remember the movie, I've always liked this since I was a kid.  I only remember a couple of songs such as "Music of the Night" and "All I Ask of You".  I heard they've been on tour for 20 sumthin years.  I gotta see it since it's gonna be their FINAL Los Angeles engagement (until October 31st) and I'm not sure if they will put at end to it period! First time seeing this on stage and it was indeed a great production.  We got good seats too!  See our pics from the show...


After the show, we went to our fave AYCE KBBQ - SANYA in K-Town and then YOGURT HAVEN for dessert.

Sunday, 9/26/10

Slept most of the day and did some jewelry orders while watching TV.  I need to clean my messy room! Thought of baking a cake for my last cake decorating class this Tuesday but we ran out of eggs and milk. Don't you just hate it when that happens? Grrr! 

Well that's the end of it! Hope you all had a great weekend!
I hate going back to work this week but this girl needs to pay bills!
Ciao my luvlies!!!

Intro to Sewing @ The Urban Craft Center

Any of you heard about Groupon?  It's a deal-of-the-day website that offers probably the best deals in almost anything under the sun.  Check it out and see if they serve your area.  Couple months ago, I got this Groupon $30 coupon redeemable for one class at The Urban Craft Center (up to $70 value).  I signed up for their INTRO TO SEWING CLASS (3 hours - Regularly priced at $65) since I have this brand new Brother sewing machine that my boyfriend got me for our anniversary that's still in the box and just gathering dust.  I don't want him to think that I'm neglecting it.

2433 Main St.
Santa Monica, CA 90405

I went on a Saturday morning for the 11am-2pm class.  I didn't have time to get the materials (1/2 yard of fabric and thread) ahead of time so I just bought it there since they sell them too.  Class syllabus says we're going to make throw pillow covers.  I had enough time to look around and take some photos inside the studio.

Showcasing our masterpieces

My cam acted up again. Sorry for the poor quality!

with our instructor Christine Haynes - author of the book "Chic & Simple Sewing"

Lookie! She's so cool, she signed my book! Click here to order her book.

Finally, here's my baby enjoying my masterpiece.  So cute!

Overall, it was a wonderful experience.  I get to meet fellow crafters and hopefully hang out with them in the future.  I don't have any crafty friends that's why to go with.  I am super excited and now planning to take their Patternmaking Class.  That's a whooping $150 though.  Too bad no more Groupon Coupon but I think it's a good investment anyway.  I was so inspired by this girl's blog:  NewDressAday and can't wait to start making my own clothes!!!

Ciao, luvlies!!!
