Hello Seattle!

I can’t believe I’m back here already! It’s been 5 months since I left Washington but it all seems so fresh in my head that I was just here a while ago to get married. I’m back here for the holidays to celebrate my first Thanksgiving in the US with my husband and my new extended family. I am also am a bit nervous for my first Black Friday experience as I’ve heard the horror stories lol!

 Although it has been raining a lot since I got here, I’m loving the chilly weather, the shopping, the restaurants, and of course, the coffee. I’m hoping someday, my husband gets stationed in Fort Lewis so we won’t have far to travel to come into the city. Till then, I shall soak up all that Seattle has to offer!

Pike Place Market

I love the sign on these avocados!

The very first Starbucks store!

The infamous gum wall!

Interesting huh?

The Space Needle!


Bare Minerals eye shadow!

I have never bought anything nor have I been to a Bare Minerals store till a friend and I were shopping, and she wanted to stop by to get some foundation and concealer. For some odd reason, I keep calling this brand Bare Essentials, like it’s some kind of lingerie store:P I’m hoping it’s a brand back home, hence the confusion lol.  

I wasn’t too impressed with their foundation as I am extremely picky so while browsing the store, I came across some gorgeous eye shadows in every color possible. I was in heaven testing out all the colors and came out all sparkly with different shades of color on the back of my hand. Since they were a bit pricy, I decided to buy two colors that I know I would use a lot. I figured that if I was going to pay a higher price for something, I might is well purchase something I’m going to use often rather than have it sit in my make up draw untouched. I went with a dark navy blue color and a shimmery bronzy-beige color; two colors I know I’m going to use quite a bit, especially for a smokey eye look which I usually wear on a night out clubbing.  

Since they are a powdery eyeshadow, I suggest dusting off your brush before applying so you don’t get it all over your face or under your eyes, especially with a dark color. You definitely don’t want all that fall out.
