Princess of China



 



Outfit Details:
jacket - LC by Lauren Conrad(similar)
tank - Mossimo for Target
BB Dakota top - Hautelook
Hudson by GMJ jeans - Hautelook
Empress necklace - JewelMint 

Happy Leap Day!
And my first outfit post! I've been in a muted black/white/grey neutral palette phase lately so I decided to amp up my outfit with these bright purple-ish blue heels.  The heels are pretty comfortable with the height coming in at 3 inches.  I also love that the heel is a turquoise color giving Blake an extra kick.

And my jeans need to be hemmed but I don't want to bother with it.  And that black thing around my wrist is a hair elastic.  I rock it everyday because I always tend to find myself needing a hair tie when I don't have one on me.  Sometimes I wear two of these on my wrist because I will forget I had one in the first place. Don't judge me.

REBECCA MINKOFF & mark.

Target, H&M and Kohl's aren't the only ones snatching up designers! mark. is collaborating with cult favorite designer Rebecca Minkoff this Spring! Rebecca Minkoff is known for her adorable MAC (Morning After Clutch) crossbody bags and she's bringing her sleek design to mark. in the form of the mark. Rebecca Minkoff Delight Bag!!


True to her MAC form (and mark.'s!), the bag is customizable. It can be worn with or without straps and an added bonus for us petite girls, the straps can be shortened so the bag isn't banging against our knees when worn on one shoulder (one of my biggest pet peeves).

The Rebecca Minkoff Delight Bag is only available in one style: black with studs but at the affordable price of $70, it's a steal to not have! Bag is now available online at www.mymarkstore.com/aphan.

Current Makeup Bag Favorites

We all have favorite beauty products whether it's just for the moment or for the long term.  Below are some of my go-to favorite products that I have been reaching for everyday over the last couple of months:


Tarte Lifted Natural Eye Primer - I use this all the time! The consistency is similar to Urban Decay's Primer Potion but has the added bonus of firming and lifting ingredients. Once I put this under my shadow, they do not budge until I take it off. It's no longer sold on its own on Tarte's website but what's even better is that Tarte includes a deluxe sample size of this primer with a majority of the palettes they release.

Urban Decay Naked Palette
- I've had this for almost a year and I still use at least one shade from the palette everyday. Great neutrals for everyday (and night!).
Tarte Smolder Eyes in Bronze - How much do I love this pencil? Let me count the ways! The bronze color is great for day or night. The pencil is a little on the bigger side but you can use this for liner or smudged on the lid for all-over color.



Maybelline Falsies Mascara in Very Black
- I love how the unique spoon shaped bristles really help catch each and everyone of my lashes. It makes my lashes look thicker, fuller, and darker and in turn, making my eyes look bigger which is always a thumbs up! I love to emphasize my eyes so I brush on at least 2-3 coats of mascara.

NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in Taupe/Ash
- It comes with clear wax, two powder colors, a mini spooly and mini angled brush but I use the color only. I mix the two colors together to get a more customized color.
mark. Brow Factor Hook Up Clear Brow Gel - The finishing touch to my brows! It tames stray hairs and keeps them in line.
MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural
- Light coverage leaving my skin looking matte but in a natural way.



MAC Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul
- The peachy color and gold flecked shimmer is a great compliment to my everyday neutral eyes and gives me a nice healthy glow.

Stila Long Wear Lip Color in Adorable - Creamy and doesn't dry lips. It leaves a nice sheen and stays on for about 3-4 hours for me. This color in particular is a nude peach color.

I am still trying to find the perfect foundation base, concealer, and moisturizer. My skin is super dry in the winter so if I don't exfoliate and moisturize properly, I get really flaky which we know does not look good under foundation. What are some of your favorite products?
