I rely heavily on friends and beauty boxes for all my makeup tips. I’m such a newb.
I like: Dior Mascara Base travel size and Clinique Mascara Primer
Tip: one friend with exceptional eyelashes shared: always use eyelash primer. This allows for long-lasting, fuller lashes. My favorite part though: you know when you get black mascara all over your eyelid? When you apply this first, you can hit your skin with it and be as messy as you want, it won’t show up. Your final black mascara layer will only need a few coats.

The best mascara I have ever used. Hands down. Makes my Asian lashes have length & volume unlike anything else I’ve used. It’s in between regular & waterproof mascara. Lasts as long as waterproof mascara, but washes off way easier.

I recently went on an all-natural deodorant kick, and subsequently purchased TOMS All Natural Deodorant from Trader Joes. It didn’t feel very dry at all, so I also bought a homemade version from a Yoga studio, but the lemongrass scent was so over powerful that I couldn’t stand to wear it after a few weeks. Then my friend Michelle told me she had a fabulous recipe for it, and let me tell you….it works! Keep reading for the recipe and to see how it went…
Above, I captured the Golden Gate Bridge as I love to see it: in the fog. I started Foggy Dress when I first moved here a few years ago, and the constant foggy weather stood out to me the most. Being from LA area, I just assumed all of California was hot, and was shocked to being wearing sweaters and shoes (too cold for flip flops) all summer long. San Francisco has micro climates, so not all the city is as foggy as the Richmond District (near the bridge), but I have grown to love and embrace it. Here’s to more adventures in one of my favorite foggy cities.
btw – my very first post on Foggy dress but technically this was my very first post whose title reminds me of this amazing 90’s song that takes me way, way back.
If you haven’t already seen, Foggy Dress had some work done over the past few months… At the end of 2015 my blog was hacked, and I had to shut it down for a while. My brother did most of the “heavy lifting” to get my blog back and running, and I decided to give the blog a much needed “face lift”. My crazy talented sister-in-law even designed my new logo.
I can’t believe I didn’t blog the whole time I was in Pasadena. It took some time to get the blog back up and running, what with work + life getting in the way…(: and I’m still tweaking it here and there, so pardon the weirdness you may encounter from time to time. Here are more pictures of our back-house rental in Pasadena…
