Life on Instagram

                                   My Instagram shenanigans: @chic_therapy
I finally learned how to tie a gele (head tie), and I made sure to show off my new found skill at a traditional wedding and 50th birthday a few weeks ago.

Florals and Balloons

A while back I needed a subject for my photography class assignment, and my girl Ara agreed to be my model. Since it was her birthday she suggested a balloon themed shoot. 

It was an extremely sunny and hot day, but Ara was a good sport and the shoot went well. And of course before the end of the session I hijacked her balloons and posed for a few shots. See pictures below.

Flower crown, sand sculptures, ocean waves, fun people, et al

With summer coming to an end, I and some friends/acquaintances decided to have a beach day yesterday. As luck would have it, the temperature drastically reduced from the previous day, and it was chilly and a tad windy. While we didn't frolic around in the water like we had planned to, we had fun stuffing our faces with food, playing games, taking pictures, and checking out sculptures from the just concluded sand sculpture festival.

Despite the cold, it was a great time with fun people and good food-yum!. Hope you all had a fab weekend as well.

How amazing are these sand sculptures!!

That's all folks. Have a fabulous week.

Cobalt blue & champagne eye make up

Today's post is a make up look I wore to a wedding few weeks ago. The bottom part of my dress (worn here) was metallic navy blue, and I decided to compliment the outfit with blue eye makeup. Because I was pressed for time, I opted for my basic make up technique; neutral color in inner corner of eyes, bright color in the middle,and brown shadow on the outer part corner. 
I wasn't able blend the shadow as much as I would have wanted, but I thinkbut overall, the look came out okay. Products used are listed below. 

Have a fab day.
