It's been two years since I last visited my extended family in #China. πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³ I'm flying out to #Shanghai today and while I'm not looking forward to the 15-hour flight, I'm stoked to see my #family. Logging off social media for the next few days. See you soon, Insta! πŸ‘‹πŸ½βœˆοΈπŸŒ™ #airplane_lovers #flights #travelphotography #travelblogger #sunset #clouds #skyporn

I don't always wear #makeup, but when I do, I turn to #myeverydayfive! (Thanks to @bustle for launching this Insta #makeupchallenge! Awesome idea!) πŸ’πŸ»On a hot summer day, I like to spritz 1) @lushcosmetics Tea Tree Water #Toner, which feels amazing on my skin and refreshes my face throughout the day. Lately, my go-to face #primer has been 2) @smashboxcosmetics Photo Finish #Foundation Primer, which is silky and smooth without being oily! Then, I use a #makeup sponge to layer on 3) itcosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream (I wear the shade "Medium"), building coverage however I like. Then, I'll put on just a bit of 4) @ibybeauty #highlighter in "Bubbly," a shimmery peach shade that doubles as a #blush topper. Finally, I put on my faaaavorite #lipstick, 5) #nyxcosmetics Butter Lipstick in "Midnight Swim" (creamy, pigmented magenta color, but honestly the whole line is fabπŸ’„). These are just a few of my holy grails! What are yours? πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’‹πŸ’…πŸ½ #beauty #cosmetics #style #makeupreview #notsponsored #makeupaddict #makeuplove #beautyjunkie #beautyblogger

Tea party, anyone? β˜•οΈ Can't seem to stay away from @mariebelleny in #SoHo and their beautiful #porcelain #teacups! This past weekend, @jaclynanglis and I got their delicious #hotchocolate and #crepes for #brunch! 🍡🍴🍰 #teatime #hotchocolate #coffeelife #desserts #NYC #SoHo #sweettreat #foodporn #foodstagram #delish #treatyoself

Has #April already flown by?! Seems like it was just yesterday that I got my @ipsy #AprilGlamBag 😏 Before I go any further, I have an announcement: Next month will be my last #ipsy bag for a while. I first joined ipsy back in Oct. 2014 to create and expand my #makeup collection. Now that I've discovered so many amazing new #beauty products, I want to enjoy them!! After May, I'll launch a new series focused on my current #makeup collections. Without further ado, here's what I got in my April glam bag: @ofracosmetics #Blush in "Rendezvous," a cool-toned rose shade, @elizabethmott "Show Me Your #Glow" #Shimmer #Eyeshadow & #Highlighter, @ciatelondon Mini Bamboo #Bronzer in "Palm Island" (smooth, pigmented, beautiful!), Dream by PS Cosmeceutical Infused #NailLacquer in "Southern Sand" (pale nude shade, not my style at all! πŸ™…πŸ») and @skinandco Truffle Therapy Face #Toner. πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’„πŸ’…πŸ½ #cosmetics #ipsylove #style #makeupreview #notsponsored #subscriptionbox #makeupaddict #makeuplove #beautyjunkie #makeuphaul #beautyblogger

Spent the weekend celebrating my girl @jaclynanglis on her 26th #birthday! πŸŽ‚πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ₯‚Thanks for being a kickass roommate and always being there for me! There's nobody else I'd rather have late-nights chats with, go on #foodie adventures with or share a mutual hate for doing laundry 🀣 I hope you had a wonderful time this weekend and I can't wait to make more #roomie memories in the future! πŸ‘―πŸ’• #birthdaygirl #weekendvibes #roomielove #drinks🍹 #nyc #shenanigans #nightlife #applesandcheese #moreteaplease

Everyone needs to go out and try the #truffle #burger and #sweetpotato truffle fries from @umamiburger in #GreenwichVillage. Hands down, BEST BURGER IN THE WORLD πŸ”πŸ˜¬ #burgers #NewYorker #nycdining #foodporn #foodstagram #cheeselover #nomnomnom

Found my new favorite coffee shop at @mariebelleny with @emilyepalmer this weekend πŸ˜‹ We treated ourselves to #blueberry mousse cake, #caramel tart and spicy #hotchocolate with cinnamon and nutmeg in the most beautiful teacups I've ever seen β˜•οΈπŸ° #teatime #coffeelife #desserts #NYC #SoHo #sweettreat #foodporn #foodstagram #delish #treatyoself

Is it possible for matchmaking to be #feminist? At the @modernloveclub, it is 😍✨ I profiled this ~whimsical~ #art #museum and matchmaking service by @amyvandoran a few months ago for @bustle and it's freaking awesome.

Happy #Spring, everyone! 🌸 I've got my #MarchIpsyBag here to share with you today. To start us off, the March bag is to-die-for 😍 It's pale pink, it folds over and the design is just so creative! In all honesty, I'm not too excited about the products inside: @evahairnyc Mane Magic 10-in-1 #Hair #Primer (don't need, never will), @drbrandt #Microdermabrasion Mini, @vasanticosmetics Professional #Contour #Eyeshadow Brush, @thebalm_cosmetics Bahama Mama #Bronzer and @mprincess_makeup Pressed Eyeshadow in "Chestnut" (shimmery chocolate brown; rough texture but pigmented). This month was mainly a fail because I don't use hair primers, I've gotten a million #exfoliators from #ipsy and the bronzer pan is too small for application. I get a dud month every so often so this isn't a deal breaker, but I wonder if I should take a break from subscription boxes and enjoy the makeup that I already have? How do you manage your collection, friends? πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ’…πŸ½πŸ‘› #beauty #cosmetics #ipsylove #style #makeupreview #notsponsored #subscriptionbox #makeupaddict #makeuplove #beautyjunkie #makeuphaul #beautyblogger
