LA/Vegas: Celebrity-sightings, Eggslut & Photoshoot!

Helloooooo~ 

Felt like I've been MIA for a while but it was pretty hard to update whilst traveling. IG stories make my life a whole lot easier when it comes to social media haha

We have 8 days here from LA > Vegas > Malibu > LA so imma break it down in parts. Today is alr Day 3 ๐Ÿ˜‚ The next few posts are probably gonna be travelogues but zomg I have so many new GOOD beauty reviews to share soon k! 

Okay, a'lil backtrack.

Day 1

Our first airbnb is this cute little place and there's 3 bedrooms - just nice for the 5 of us. The rooms are huge and clean, with a clean and comfy bathroom and beds are super comfy. No complains esp. since it's only one night!

We had a cute balcony and the view was so LA! Well, at least that's how I've always imagined LA to look like somewhat haha

#ootd for dinner at Perch to celebrate rach's birthday~

I had SO many DMs on IG asking me about this dress and it's from TEMT! One of my fave shopping spot but this was from a while back tho ๐Ÿ˜…

Quick #fotd since we only had like, 1 hour to get ready.

LA is so different from Boston for sure. We are making it the first and last stop of the trip so I'm alr excited to go back to it!

Rooftop dinner to celebrate rach's 24th! This place was highly popz so we had to make reservations exactly three weeks in advance; esp if we wanted a good seat by the outside. But tbh, the view wasn't anything special lah lol

๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ 

I looked super weird cause my face was so puffy?? The traveling and no sleep was just messing me up.

Amazing company coupled with...

Amazing food! The view was pretty okay but the food was bomb! 6 of us shared 3 appetizers, 3 mains and 3 desserts plus a bottle of wine and 4 glasses of champagne and we were damn bloody full after, even tho the portion weren't very big. 

I'm not a food person so I don't feel like I can share much for this but overall, salmon was the most meh out of the mains and mussels for appetizers were ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

All of us were jet lagged tho. Rach came in from SG so she was 15 hours lagged. Us from Boston were 3 hours ahead. JY and Mel came in from Europe and they were 7 hours lagged LOL WTF HAHAHA Everyone either couldn't sleep, kept waking up or got up ridiculously early. Timings were all fucked basically. 

T'was supposed to be an early night but everyone still woke up with a headache ๐Ÿค•

Day 2

We were heading in to Vegas so everyone was ready to go by 830am. Didn't wanna pile on the makeup cause Nevada had extreme heat warning and I wasn't about to melt. Turned out to be a good thing cause we were under 40ยฐC temperature the entire day. I felt like I was being roasted alive. 

Quick #fotd still! 

Primer: Hourglass AL Primer (Luminous Light)
Concealer: Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Concealer (20) 
Contour: Colourpop Contour Stick (Dove)

Imma do a lot of reviews on the new stuff I'm using like the eyeliner and all but omg I am really enjoying playing with makeup all over again. Just the fun of dressing up and sitting there for an hour playing is just so therapeutic lah. But wowza the heat here is a total killer.

#ootd for day 2! 

Top: H&M
Shorts: Mango
Earrings: Louvisa

I love this top. It is linen and not cotton so it's actually even prettier irl with the texture!

Love u, hubs.

Drove for brunch and Downtown LA is so quiet on a Sunday morning. That's what I thought, at least. Until we realized that everyone's hungover and looking for greasy breakfast lol

๐Ÿ“eggslut

I underestimated this little place. 

They served good greasy breakfast and it was really nothing fancy but the quality tho omg. I died. As I'm typing this, I can feel the saliva pool in my mouth.

Like OMG I MISS THIS SO MUCH. 

The bun was so soft and fresh. The eggs were PERFECT. The honey butter was to-die-for. Plus they do decent coffee! Aside from the crazy price, it was delicious. 

And we saw Emily Ratajkowski and SHE IS SUPER HOT IRL??? Like damn hot omg. If u dk who she is...

There you go. She is as perfect as she looks. Her boobs are damn nice seriously. My SIL went up and got a pic and she was super friendly. I'm not big into celebrities so I didn't lah. Wtf am I supposed to do with the pic anyway LOL

Every part of LA is picture-worthy!

Y ur juicebar so cute ๐Ÿ˜

Matchy outfit with the husband and thanks for making my legs look so awesome here, fj LOL

Then it was a 4-hour road trip to Vegas! 

We rented a huge Dodge from Fox Rent A Car and it was so worth it. Comfy and fitted our luggages! Plus all doors were automated. Shiok. 

We actually tipped alil more and our extra charges all got waived. Money talks, guys ๐Ÿค‘

Stopped by Seven Magic Mountains for this 2-year art installation of colorful rocks. We had to walk ~3-min away from the car and 3 minutes under 40ยฐC heat felt like death.

But perfect photo op ๐Ÿ˜

I LOVE HAVING A GIRL ON THE TRIP. I get to take so many pictures HAHAH and all my bruises are healing so yay! Wait till you see my outfit shots she took for me. I luvvvvv them all and I can't even decide which to post ๐Ÿ˜‚

I hate resizing images but I wanted to show y'all the height of the rocks. So insane. We were trying to guess if they glued it HAHA

I'm always reminded of my height when I get together with my hubs' family lol. It's ridiculous. Once, I stood behind him when we were entering his grandad's house and everyone was like, 'eh where's pearlyn?' And I had to pop my head out from behind LMAO

Vegas was...well, very Vegas haha. Flashing lights and casinos everywhere. I can't imagine it otherwise tho. We checked into Flamingo - which is the first casino/hotel built in this new part of the strip and all the others build themselves around it (nerd fact ๐Ÿค“).

I love it cause it's pink everywhere and there's real flamingoes?!!

Like for real

Then it was a 10-min drive out to North outlet mall! This is the biggest one here after some online-comparison hehe

Did some very successful damage too. Managed to pick up a dress for Nobu True Religion jeans were going for $70. Wtf lah cause A&F's jeans are >$100?? My SIL's damage was the biggest sia ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

But omg, I'm so excited cause now it means we get to share all our shit!! We were deciding between the blush and oxford purses and decided to get one each so we can share ๐Ÿ˜‚ YAZZZZ, this is why having a sister is awesome?? Esp. when she likes to shop too. Too bad our shoe sizes are different lol

My damage for Round I wasn't really too bad. 

Aforementioned blush purse, earrings and pretty periwinkle dress from Francesca and my blush suede Vans ๐Ÿ˜ Sneakers are lyfe. Luv it.

Day 3

I love flamingoes lah ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ Luvvit that there are real ones here! I also wanna get souvenirs from the gift shop cause it's all flamingoes/pineapples/palm trees-everything??

I mean, lookatdis ๐Ÿ˜ I think I'm gonna get it even tho it's mega overpriced

We bought the $49.90 pass for 24-hour all-day buffet at 5 different hotels here.I love that I didn't have I pick just one hohoho I iz can has my eggs, pancakes, bacon etc etc etc hehehe

But have to top up for Bacchanel and one more other one I can't recall. We had a grand total of 4 buffet-meals since we got here so I must say it's really worth it.

Also did a mini informal shoot with the sights for the wedding but weather was really insane for warpaint. So I went ~kinda~ light for my #fotd

I tried out the City Mini Palette and zomg I love it? It's so shiny and sparkly but the camera couldn't capture anything.......๐Ÿ˜ž

I LOVE IT THO?? My recent makeup buys were all scores. Will do full review of everything soon! There's eyeliner, shadow palettes and even lipsticks hehe

We headed out to Red Rock Canyon for sightseeing and mini informal shoot so the wedding has a variety of pics, spanning across countries! 

So many tourists were in hiking gear and we were so dressed up wtf

Weather was slightly better today but it was still damn hot lah. I think it was 38ยฐC out there.

Cannot miss taking #ootd shots with such a view right. My SIL is awesome right??? Like omg so Coachella feelz? 

We were like looking out for cars and running out to the road to take this ๐Ÿ˜‚ People driving by must be like wtf is happening

So many weird plants in the desert and don't this look like a big rambutan ๐Ÿ˜‚

All the photos turned out super amazing but if u zoomed in, u can see our squinting eyes and beads of perspiration ๐Ÿ˜‚ 

Mel helped us took some candid ones and the actual pics are really even nicer lah. Me so happppyyy.

We really hiked up rocks and shit to do the shoot zomg. I think this is the most exhausting shoot up-to-date

But omg it was so worth it. Every shot was super pretty and the scenery helped a lot lah hahaha

My SIL's really know her angles so I can't wait to compile all these together. Can't decide if I want a montage tho. ๐Ÿค”
