instagramable moments

Instagram is hands down my favorite app, said no one ever, but seriously if you aren't following me- now's the time. You get outfits I never post on here and tidbits into my favorite jaunts in San Francisco or wherever I'm stationed at the moment and there are food pics, lots of food pics. Here are some of my favorite looks from last week and where to get the items or similarly styled items, as well as look into my Ulta Salon experience...

Place: Perusing the new Ulta in San Francisco and obsessed with all the Essie!

This past weekend I was able to tour the latest and greatest Ulta in SF, it involved some pampering, makeup application and me walking out feeling like a million bucks.  The space was spacious, clean and classic Ulta. I was treated to a blowout which was fan-freakin-tastic. I actually had never been to The Salon at an Ulta, and was pleasantly surprised. Check out the image below, think disheveled Victoria Secret runway look. Then I got my brows touched up at the Benefit bar within the store. Brows are one of my biggest weaknesses and the Bene gals and guys take their brows seriously. I love a good Benefit brow service!  If you guys have the chance to take in this store, do it! You'll want #allthestuff. I picked up a bottle of my favorite Essie nail polish- Bikini So Teeny, and was on the hunt for a new fuchsia matte lipstick but they were sold out. I guess that just means I'll have to come back soon!

  2. This is a great venue. I was here for a party and there was so much food and it was all done so well! The decor and food both were amazing. Personally, I think the space at event halls in Philadelphia is laid out really well and the size of the venue keeps pulling great parties.


Love it, hate it? I want to know!
