Nails of the Day | David Bowie Nails

David Bowie Nails
I was just browsing the "nails of the day" tag on my blog and it seems like I haven't posted one in over a year. I feel like running to my room and cover my face in embarrassment right now. How did that even happen? How did I not post a "nails of the day" when I paint my nails once or twice a week every week of the year? I honestly don't know how that even happened but I'm bringing "nails of the day" back from the dead with some rock'n'roll glam. By now you all know that I love David Bowie, I've done a Ziggy Stardust makeup tutorial and even named named my dog Bowie. When I saw these David Bowie nail decals on Etsy, I knew I had to buy them for Outside Lands. This post is more of a throwback post, but I just wanted to show you the Outside Lands approved David Bowie nails!

San Fran and Outside Lands | #Snapvlogs

If you don't have a Snapchat or don't follow me on there, sometimes I like to use it as a mini vlog channel. Here's why Snapchat has become my favorite social media app: First of all, you all know by now that I love sharing bits of my life with you and the app makes daily "vlogging" a breeze. I don't have to worry about editing anything and each snap just uploads in an instant. I also enjoy getting instant feedback from my Snapchat homies in the form of text messages, pictures, or video. It just makes my community of like minded and silly women that much more real to me. Since I do treat my Snapchat account like a small vlog channel at times, I've decided to immortalize my interesting stories and create actual vlogs out of them! The first installment of my #snapvlogs will take you around San Francisco and Outside Lands! You'll see a proper vlog soon, consider this is a small preview of what you'll get in a few days. 

August 2015 Favorites

August Favorites
So I'm like 90% done with my room which means I can now go back to blogging and making videos! There was no way that I was going to miss out on posting my monthly favorites, despite the fact that there wasn't a lot of beauty or skincare products to talk about. That didn't stop me from blabbing in this video though! As per usual, this favorites video is around 15+ minutes because I felt like we needed to take some time to catch up.

Exciting Changes Coming Soon!

The month of August has been a crazy one so far! First I ventured out to San Francisco for my third consecutive Outside Lands, and now I'm back to some home renovations. We're doing things on a much smaller scale this time, but one of the rooms that will be changing is my bedroom! This whole week I'm going to focus on my room makeover and I will try my best to document at least two of the DIY's that I'll be doing. One of the biggest changes that you'll immediately see in videos is the wall color. Say goodbye to the yellow walls! Did you know that yellow used to be my favorite color? Seeing the color everyday for 3 years definitely changed my opinion for the worst, so I'm extremely happy to be going back to plain ol' white (aka the "boring" color according to my mom). Due to my shift in focus, my blog will be taking a little breather for the rest of this week. I am going to be working all week long so I can finish and get back to blogging as soon as possible! I'm hoping to have my room entirely done by Sunday at the latest. Thank you all for your support and I can't wait to show you my new room! Make sure to check out the progress on my Snapchat: @lauraneuzeth.

August 2015 Ipsy Bag Opening

August 2015 Ipsy Bag Opening
I am back from San Francisco with a brand new video! Not going to lie I'm still pretty tired and I'm not feeling too well, but after a little week off break I felt like posting something on YouTube. I did some recording in San Francisco but I just wanted something quick and fun to record- hence the August Ipsy bag video. Since it's back to school season, this month's Ipsy bag has a preppy theme. Will this bag get an A or will it fail? Also, why did I get two eyeliners in one bag? You'll have to watch the video to find out.

Music Festival Makeup Bag

 Music Festival Makeup Bag
This is my 500th post and I happen to be celebrating in Outside Lands. What can I say? The timing was perfectLast year I showed you what I was bringing along with me to Outside Lands and we're to go through everything once again! This is my third year attending the Outside Lands music festival and my seventh music festival that I've attended so far, so by now I consider myself somewhat of a pro when it comes to packing for a music festival. My makeup and toiletries bag is a little full, but take into consideration that there's no camping at Outside Lands and that the weather is much cooler in San Francisco. When I'm packing for a music festival the products that I take along with me have to meet the following criterias: 1.) Is it versatile? 2.) It is compact and does it meet the TSA guidelines? 3.) Does it travel well? (There's nothing worse than a cracked powder product). This video might be helpful for anyone considering attending a music festival in the future, or go on a short trip.

Outfit of the Day | Modern Basics

Outfit of the Day Modern Basics
Earlier this summer I decided that I'm going to begin to transition into a capsule wardrobe. If you don't know what that means, I'm basically going to limit my wardrobe to 30-40 pieces. In order to do that, I've been selling some of my clothing and putting stuff aside to donate. It's not easy decluttering your closet, but building a capsule wardrobe has proven to be quite fun. The few fashion pieces that I've picked up as of late have been purchased if they fit the following criteria: 1.) Will I get a lot of wear from this? 2.) Can I style it in multiple ways? 3.) Do I feel comfortable in this? And from there I decide if it's worth adding into my wardrobe or not. Today I'm going to show you one of my favorite outfits that I've been wearing quite often this summer.

Empty Products #6

Empty Products #4
It has been well over 7 months since my last empty products video, and you can only imagine how many products I managed to accumulate. I honestly feel borderline embarrassed for hoarding empty trash for that long. Let's see I have 9 tubes of mascara, 5 bottles of body wash, 5 packs of makeup wipes, and a slew of skincare products. There's a whole lot going on in this video but if you're a fan of getting quick and concise reviews, then this is a must-watch. Plus you'll get a way better idea if a product is worth purchasing or if you should just save your money instead.

Happy Healthy Dogs Beneful Incredibites
By now pretty much everyone who follows me on my blog and my social media accounts knows that I love my three dogs. All of them are different breeds and sizes, but they're all spoiled rotten and very healthy. My family and I value each dog's health a lot since we want them to stick around for as long as possible. Our love, healthy food choices, and activities have kept the dogs very happy and healthy over the years. Francis is the smallest of our three dogs and as previously mentioned on my blog, she's the pickiest eater. She won't eat the regular adult dog kibble because it's too big and hard, and even though the puppy kibble is much smaller she won't even touch it. Luckily for Francis, Beneful has come up with a dog food specifically for the tiniest members of the family! In this blog post you'll see a few of the things that my family does to keep Francis as happy and healthy as possible by using products that are conveniently available at Target. And there's also a bunch of adorable pictures of dogs in this blog post!
