It’s been a few months since the first diy brush holder post shown here. That’s why I’ve decided to repeat the dose and show again (this time in stop-motion) how to create a fabulous makeup brush solution that’s budget friendly. You can opt for something smaller or larger (always your call) depending on how intense your brush collection is. Mine is pretty average. Take a look!
Last night Taylor (friend and blogger at The Wearist) and I stopped by Bobbi Brown on Michigan Avenue to preview the fall collection.
Welcomed by Rita (whom I adore and also beauty contributor at Chitown Fashionista) and Yanita, beauty and fashion blogger at Manolos Manicures & This Mom we learned more than a few useful makeup tricks from these ladies, including eyeliner 101 (which I could use to improve the cat-eye, six ways how to video).
There are a lot more images on Lulu Abroad’s fan page if you wanna take an extra peek at what went on at the event and remember to follow on instagram (@luluabroad) for instant pics and updates
For every video my husband and I put together there are always those we have to cut out because something didn’t go right. And now you know what I’m gonna say next: bloopers! Instead of letting it all go to waste I thought you might enjoy this
Haven’t seen the original retro-beachwear video yet? Here you go!
Last weekend we went down to Michigan City to enjoy a day under the sun on Lake Michigan. I probably never had as much fun shooting (both these and the video lookbook) and was even happier after seeing the images we were able to capture.
Wanna see the whole retro-inspired look in action? Wish granted:
Today’s outfit is one of my favorites I’ve posted here on the blog (more so than the first video lookbook) I’ve been promising myself a retro inspired halter one-piece swimsuit like the one seen in this video lookbook for ages now.
But adding to the sad truth I’ve put on a few pounds I had no excuse but to cheer myself up with something cute that would flatter my body, give me confidence (even though I’m not in my ideal shape) and enjoy some compliments from other ladies at the beach. Heck yeah who wouldn’t? Anyone interested in purchasing this piece should be warned: sizes run extremely small so make sure you go at least two sizes up when ordering. Stay tuned for the outfit post that will follow!
Early this week the lovely Nikia from Chitown Fashionista hosted a brunch to announce the launch of a new video series. Over sweet mimosas and danishes, we all went bananas for the idea. Closet Conversations is an in-depth look at fabulous closets that belong to fabulous people in Chicago.
The first episode features Sally Schwatz, founder of the Randolph Street Market who I had the pleasant opportunity to meet that afternoon. And wow, she’s just like she is in the video! So spontaneous it made me jealous. It’s a monthly hook-up deal (certainty once a day would be too much. right? No!) and I honestly can hardly wait for the next episodes.
