clinartexoxo for your first month free!

Winter is finally here, but it definitely doesn't feel like it! For this month's theme, I got simple, elegant pieces that can go with almost anything. I wore a loose long white shirt with pants to pair my jewelry to accent the jewelry.

This time around, I received a layered nugget bead necklace from slate, a dita split ring from Gorjana, and Elle Earrings in Slate from Kendra Scott. I love the quote I got this month- "Alight with those who help you shine!" Anyways, the ring was by far my favorite piece as I love how it falls outside of the traditional band around the finger. Instead, it is split in the middle with a black beaded design that I love. The necklace is very pretty, but I feel that it is a little too long for certain outfits. I really love the gold tones that I received in this month's set, and I'm excited to see what I'll get next time around!


I finally got around to shooting my last outfit from MonoB Clothing! This time, I shot with the super talented photographer @RyanByRyanChua, and I was extremely impressed at the results. Since Ryan was familiar with the Arts District in DTLA, we decided to wander around the block to take photos.

Outfit One: Similar to the burgundy high waisted skirt in my last blog post, I wore a black plaid high waisted knit skirt paired with a black crop top turtleneck. To finish off the outfit, I wore a classic watch from Daniel Wellington in black and rose, a gold chain necklace from Forever 21, black knee high boots from Alexander Wang, and the Parody purse from Chloe.

Holiday Outfit!

For my second set, I decided to wear a holiday dress that would be perfect for a party or a night out. This cute boho red lace dress was from The Wildflower shop, and since it was long sleeve and went up to my neck, I only wore my Daniel Wellington watch with my high knee boots to match. I love how it's long sleeve so I could stay warm during the cold winter nights! 

Had so much fun shooting this set. Hope you all have a happy holidays! xo

Second month using Rocksbox, and I'm still in love! This month's box had more of a fall bohemian theme which was perfect for November! I decided to pair my necklace and bracelet with a brown suede dress from MonoB Clothing to complete the look. 


The box was consistent with the same wrapping and decoration, but I had a new quote this time- "If loving jewelry was a crime, I'd plead guilty." Everything was individually wrapped and placed carefully in jewelry bags, and you can really see the care that the company puts into their jewelry. I received an opaque black Kendra Scott Rayne Necklace, Gorjana Roya Shimmer Drop Earrings, and Nakamol Burgundy & Rose Wrap Bracelet. 

My personal favorite this month were the earrings; I love the simplistic design and the flexibility of use- during a day out or even at night. The bracelet was also fun to play around with and wear, and added a nice touch to almost any outfit I wore on a casual day. Overall, the colors of this month's jewelry fit the fall tones perfectly, and I can't wait to see what I'm getting for the winter! 


Pony is back again with another collaboration, and this time it's the new Shine Easy Glam Palette! I got Palette #2 which has a lot more shimmer to the colors, which I love. The palette is twice as big as the old one, and has eight gorgeous neutral and rosy colors that are perfect for everyday use. 

I was excited to hear that the formula for the powders are new and improved as Memebox added double-coating powder for longer wear and less fallout, and rosehip oil so the colors go on smoothly. Upon trying the colors, the difference was noticeable immediately; the pigments are so much nicer in this version! The colors pop out with more intensity, and it lasted throughout the whole day without any issue.

My personal favorites were the glam violet and the Shine Rose as the colors really accentuated my eyes. I put a little of purple under my eyes up to the edge, and I loved the result!  I use the Glam Bronze, Glam Mocha, and the Glam Choco for everyday use, and the rosy colors for the night. This palette has become my go to for everyday use, and I love how the colors are vibrant and fun. 


Jewelry subscription box!? Yes! As one who doesn't buy or wear jewelry often as I usually forget, it's nice to get new jewelry every month with unique designer pieces. Rocksbox is a subscription service that offers 3 different types of jewelry each month, and after that month is over, you can either return or purchase the jewelry. After creating an account, you can pick and choose your favorite jewelry pieces, and a stylist will then choose 3 that will go well together and ship them out to you.

Upon opening my package, I was very impressed at the presentation and style of the box. Each box is packed with care, and there is bubble wrap and jewelry bags surrounding each piece. I even had my own personalized card with a description of the jewelry, and a message from my stylist. 

For my first box, I received a Perry Street Laurel Necklace, a Sophie Harper Pave Dagger Studs in Gold, and a Gorjana Zoe Crossover Ring. The jewelry was of good quality and seemed very sturdy, and my favorite was the crossover ring which I enjoy wearing on the daily. The necklace is a lot longer than I expected, but it goes really well with low cut tops and rompers! The earrings were nice and simple, a lot more on the subtle side especially when going out. 

The three pieces I received are perfect for day and night! For the day out, I decided to pair my jewelry with a casual blue satin romper from Bobbi Rocco which fit really well. For the night time, I wore a light teal top from Angl, and a white pencil skirt from Bebe which also matched with the jewelry nicely. 

Overall, I love wearing these pieces with my outfits! Since I know that I only have this for a month, I want to be able to utilize it as much as I can, so I definitely do not forget to wear my jewelry haha.

This box that I received from Memebox has been by far the most interesting and unique box I've received! Inside the box included an egg mousse pack by too cool for school which is actually a really popular brand in Korea, and two lip tints from Berrisom My Lip Tint Pack- virgin red and pure pink. 


I tried out the egg mousse pack before heading to bed, and was pleasantly surprised with the results. This fine lather mousse is made up of the protein and vitalize extracted from eggs to produce a brighter and more moisturized skin. After squeezing a ping-pong ball sized mousse to my freshly washed face, I left it on for about 15 minutes until the mousse was entirely absorbed in my skin. It actually felt a little ticklish as the product was foamy and the bubbles would pop, and the end resulted in a sticky film that covered my face. After washing off the product with water, I was left with a smooth and soft face that felt super natural! 

Had to showcase my tsum tsum nails at the same time :)

The Berissom lip tints were next! I've never used a lip tint before, and was surprised at the whole process and the results. The colors are super bright, and after applying a generous amount of the lip color, I let it dry for around 5-10 minutes. After the color dried on my lips, I peeled it off which resulted in a nice, natural color on my lips. I was extremely surprised at how natural the color looks and how easy the process was! The color lasted all day as well which was awesome. I liked pure pink better as it is a lighter and more natural color. The virgin red got really messy and stained my fingers and my teeth, but the resulting color was really nice as well.

I was kind of scared on accidentally dying my skin around my lips so my first time was a little off, but here are the colors! The first two pictures are of the pure pink, while the last two are of virgin red. The first photo is when the lip color is applied, and the second photo is what it looks like after I peeled off the color. 

I also received a Ciracle Good-bye Blackhead pore control! I love the simple black packaging of the product! The box comes with directions and a tweezer to carefully grab the sheets from the package as well as cotton swabs to wipe away the blackheads after using the sheet. This product is recommended for the cheek and chin area, but I decided to put the sheet on my nose as that was where most of my blackheads were. After reading the directions, I placed a sheet on top of my nose, and waited 15 minutes before taking it off. Once the sheet was off, I used the cotton swabs to wipe away the blackheads/whiteheads that I had. This product did exactly what it was supposed to, and it was extremely easy to use! 

This package was actually my favorite as these products have really helped with my skin! I love how unique each item was; I had a fun time learning how to use these products and experimenting with them. Definitely using these products on a constant basis. Thanks Memebox for these goodies! 


My skin has become super dry lately from the summer heat and being out all day, and I fortunately received the perfect product to try out for my dry skin called the Revitalizer by Biossance. What really stood out to me in this product is the ingredients that are used to make it- squalane. This product is made of a plant-derived 100% Neossance Squalane, and is used as a facial moisturizer during the morning and night. Squalane is a natural moisturizer found within our skin but starts disappearing in our 20s. Therefore, this product basically restores your own biological beauty!

I was greeted with tons of green upon opening the box which really fit the theme of this plant derived product. The bottle the Revitalizer came in was super nice and smooth; it was in a shape of a giant frosted teardrop with a dropper at the top. Upon opening it, I put a few drops on my fingers then applied it on my face. The moisturizer was clear, and felt like fish oil without the odor. After applying the Revitalizer, my skin didn't feel oily at all, but very hydrated and super soft. I've been using it for a few weeks now, and am impressed with the results on my face! My skin feels so much more healthy-looking and more natural, and I don't even need foundation anymore! 

This product can also be used for hair serum, cuticles, and dry skin patches, but I have yet to try it anywhere else besides my face. I love how replenishing the Revitalizer is, and have started using this in replacement of my usual moisturizers. The silky smooth finish that this product provides is unmatched to any moisturizer I've tried. To learn more about this product, check out the Biossance website. 


I've been so excited for Evon's line to launch with Memebox as it is more out of the ordinary than the usual eyeshadow palette. With her #HDReady collection, Evon offers two different types of contour sets as well as three beautiful colors of cream matte lipsticks! Matte lips are the new in right now as they are more sustainable and moisturizing for your lips, and I was so happy that I received all three shades of marsala lipsticks to try! 

The quality of the matte lipstick is totally different than the typical lipstick you can get anywhere else. After applying the color, my lips felt super smooth and creamy, and the color gives off a nice classic look. Typically, when I wear regular lipstick, my lips become super dry and uncomfortable by the end of the day, but with these cream lipsticks, my lips still felt healthy after a whole day. Cream lipstick also uses a lip applicator to apply the color, which was so much more precise and easy to use. I actually enjoyed wearing cream lipstick so much better than regular lipstick! 

The lightest color, Shy Marsala, was more of a neutral nude color with a hint of pink that blended in well with my skin.

The second color, True Marsala, was my favorite color as it was not too light or too dark for me. This color was more of a soft brown with a hint of marsala undertones.

Last but not least, the Daring Marsala. This is my go to color for a night out with friends, and I love the bold wine color that really accentuates my lips.

Collab w/ Shop Tobi

This post is long overdue but Tobi ( has been one of my favorite online shopping sites! I'm so glad I got to do a collaboration with them in the spring. They have a wide variety of styles, and I usually get my dresses and my crop tops from here. Their material is always of a nice quality- I love wearing their clothes!

This trista dress is sexy yet elegant! I wore this dress to a nice dinner out in New York, and fell in love! The dress feels very secure around my body; I was super comfortable walking around and did not have to adjust my dress at all! I paired this dress with a simple three tiered necklace from No Rest For Bridget and a pair of flats.

My second look is their gorgeous white romper that I wore for Coachella; I love the lace detail on the back! I paired this dress with a Baubles & Gems necklace, a Rebecca Minkoff backpack, and Forever 21 sandals. More details on this outfit from my Coachella blog post below! This outfit fit me perfectly- definitely my favorite look from the four.

Maxi dresses are perfect for the day out! I got this casual white maxi dress with black straps around the middle. Paired with a Baubles & Gems headpiece, it was super comfy to walk around in!

Last but not least, I got this Ariana crop top for a night out in LA. This top runs big, so I would order a size smaller than what you normally wear. The latches to hook are located on the front. I paired this with black high waisted shorts and a flannel around the waist for when I got cold. Super simple and easy to wear!

Tobi always brings the best of styles and clothing! They never disappoint, and they always have great deals. Can't wait to see what their fall collection will consist of! 

Collab w/ Memebox x Pony

Sorry I've been gone for so long, I just got back from a month long Asia trip! My Pony eyeshadow and lipsticks came right in time before I left for Asia, and I felt it appropriate to use the colors for everyday use as the colors were super natural and perfect for summer. I was lucky enough to get the Brown Bloom eyeshadow palette as well as four lipstick colors (top to bottom)- Orange Dahlia, Rose Garden, Blooming Love, and Spring Romance. My favorite is definitely the Blooming Love, as I like a natural pinkish lip color. 

I fell in love with the eyeshadow palette- from the packaging to the colors and quality, everything was perfect! These four colors were perfect for blending and creating a nice, shimmery look on my eyelids. I started out with the darkest color Shine Midnight Brown on my eyelids, and blended out to my crease with the Shine Brown. I finished off with Glam Nude Beige above my crease, and highlighted my inner corners with Glam Fair Brown. The end look resulted in a really natural look that was perfect for a day out. Last but not least, I added the creamy Blooming Love color on my lips! I typically never wear lipstick, so this was a change for me. I was actually really surprised at how natural the color looked! The color stayed on for a good amount of time and didn't dry out my lips at all. 

Love this collaboration with Pony! It came out at the perfect time as the colors were based off the romantic flowers of Spring, and although it is not Spring anymore, these colors look amazing under the summer sun. As I was in Korea for a week, I felt that it was appropriate to wear Pony's collaboration out, as Pony is the makeup guru of Korea! 

Collab w/ Nylon x Memebox

Nylon celebrated their 16th birthday by giving away the #ItGirlPalette to its surbscribers! I was also one of the lucky ones who received the palette to test out and play around with. :) Love Memebox's packaging; it is always consistent and comes with the palette bubble wrapped, pink shredded paper, and new samples! 

The packaging and the exterior of the palette is super cute! Love how smooth and clean the exterior looks, and this palette comes with a double sided brush to use on the eye shadow colors. There are six smaller colors that consist of rosy and neutral shimmery colors, and a matte white called "Lilo" that can be used for the base and/or highlight of your eyes. "Paris" and "Mischa are darker rosy colors, and "Lana" and "Nicole" are nice, neutral browns that are perfect for everyday use. "Mary-Kate" is also a neutral color, but more towards a light forest green that is a really nice complement to the browns. The two larger colors on the side include different variations of pink; one which is the iconic bright pink NYLON color that they named "Sweet 16," and the other a glittery light pink called "The Moment" that is the perfect highlighter for the inside of your eyes. 

The pigments on this palette are really nice; the colors stayed on my eyes all day and did not fade whatsoever. The colors of the palette are named after their most iconic It Girls, which totally added to the theme and in my opinion, pretty unique. I started with the "Nicole" on the middle and outer lid of my eye forming an outer V, then added the "Lana" at the crease. After blending those colors, I added "Mary-Kate" to the middle of my lid for a pop. I then finished off with "Paris" on my inner lid and "The Moment" under my eyes for a highlight. I then used a little bit of the "Sweet 16" for blush on my cheekbones. 

When the sun started to set, I added a little more color for brighter eyes that would pop out more at night. I added "Mischa" to the crease and outer V, and finished off the look with more blush and red lipstick. 

I had so much fun playing around with this palette! I love the variety of versatile colors; you get a nice combination of neutral and rosy colors that you can use separately or even combine for a more playful look. I definitely want to try using "Sweet 16" on my eyes for a more intense look in the future! This would be a great go to palette for everyday eyes, and you can use the code  'NYLON4' for $4 off the palette or 'NYLON15' for 15% off any order containing the palette (i.e. mystery boxes).

5 Ways to Wear a Tulle Skirt x Shabby Apple

I've always wanted a tulle skirt, and when Shabby Apple contacted me for a collaboration, I was so excited to style it! They have three gorgeous colors- gray, pink, and mint green, and I chose the mint green as I really like how the color pops out. When my package came, I was surprised at how small it was! The tulle skirt comes in a bag, folded up, and it seemed pretty small. However, upon opening it, it was really nice and full. Tulle fortunately does not wrinkle, so upon taking out my skirt, I was able to wear it immediately. The skirt was longer than I expected; it went from my waist all the way to my feet. Because I was scared of getting it dirty, I wore short heels so the skirt would not drag on the floor. I also worked with Baubles & Gems to complete the various looks with jewelry.

1. Formal

For my first outfit, I decided to try out a more formal, elegant look with a white trench coat over the skirt. I wore a tan BCBG Maxazria shirt inside with a gorgeous gold and silver necklace by Baubles & Gems. This set was my favorite, as I love how the coat really offsets with the skirt! 

2. Casual

For my second look, I paired a casual white dress shirt with a bright yellow necklace from Baubles & Gems for a summery look. Love the color contrast of the necklace and the skirt! A loose shirt tucked in works really well with the tulle for a day outfit, and I also added sunglasses from Forever 21 to complete the look. 

3. Ballerina

I decided to go for a classic ballerina outfit for my third look; I wore a black leotard from Forever 21 paired with a pretty silver, gold and pearl necklace with these super cute bow earrings from Baubles & Gems. Love how the skirt poofs around me when I sit! I also really liked this outfit because of its simple and clean look. If you want to accentuate your figure more, I would go with something more fitting such as a body suit or a crop top. 

4. Denim

For this outfit, I paired the tulle skirt with a grey tank top and a jeans jacket over it. I added a boho style statement necklace and earrings from Baubles & Gems which I loved. Last but not least, why not complete the outfit with braided hair and converse? :p 

5. Dolly

Last but not least, a dolly look!  I wore a chiffon crop top and put my hair in a bun for this look, and added more blush and color to my face and lips to accent my features. I used the It Girl Palette by Memebox x Nylon for my eyes and blush, and I finished off my outfit with a crystal bracelet and white moon flower earrings from Baubles & Gems! 

Thank you again Shabby Apple for the beautiful tulle skirt, I had so much fun styling this! Tulle skirts look great with a variety of looks, and works for many occasions! Hope you enjoyed reading this, and comment below/ let me know what your favorite look is!

Some tips for Weekend 2 people:

Bring a jacket!! It will get really cold at night, and you will need to stay warm! I rented a locker to put my jacket and other stuff in, but I unfortunately got sick as I was walking around in the cold, so don't do what I did! 

Don't forget to eat and stay hydrated! As the event is in the desert, it was super hot and draining to walk around everywhere, so be sure to keep yourself healthy and energized. 

Bring chapstick, bandanas, and sunglasses! There's dust everywhere and it's super dry, so protect your face from all of that! Have fun! <3

Collab w/ SoothingSista x Memebox

I've always been slightly obsessed with makeup (as seen from my boxes and boxes filled with makeup at home), and so I was super excited to be chosen as one of Memebox's ambassador. Memebox is an online Korean beauty retailer that has a ton of skincare, beauty, and makeup brands and products on their site. They even have different types of boxes that you can buy for the full package! What I've noticed as well is that Memebox also works with a lot of big names and companies to create their own makeup look. I got to test Soothing Sista's eyeshadow palette that was released recently. 

Upon opening the package, it was obvious that the products were packed with care- the palette was bubble wrapped, there was pink shredded paper with two samples, and a small note from Memebox.  Love the packaging of the palette! Super smooth and simple on the outside and the perfect size as an on-the-go palette; I actually have it in my purse right now! 

There were two matte and two shimmery eyeshadow colors inside. The colors really reminded me of the Naked 3 palette as they were more rosy and natural looking. The top two, Sutro and Valencia, were the two lighter, matte colors while the bottom two, Candy Rain and Bae Area, were more shimmery. While the pigments for Sutro, Valencia, and Candy Rain were really nice, the Bae Area was a little more flaky and harder to apply. The Candy Rain was a dark mauve shimmery color that was my favorite, where the Bae Area was a shimmery light pink that I used as a highlight under my eyes. 

 I started out with eyeshadow primer and Candy Rain on my lid, and then blended out to the crease with Valencia and Sutro for a more subtle look. I then highlighted with Bae Area under my eyes, on the inner corner, and over the lid to add a little shimmer, and finished off with eyeliner and mascara! The Bae Area did come off when I put it over the lid though so I would just recommend using it as a highlight on the inner corner. This palette for me was more of a natural, everyday look that I can wear anytime. Loving the soft, neutral look it created on my eyes!

Collab w/ Baubles & Gems

I did a collab with my friend Nicole for Baubles & Gems, and it was so much fun! As one who has advertised jewelry a couple times, I always find it fun to play around with poses and learn how to showcase your hands and arms more gracefully. 

This time around, we shot with Allen ( in Pasadena at the Arlington Garden. It was pretty hot, but thankfully we were wearing kimono style dresses and a maxi dress. The gardens were so pretty! There was a really nice area to sit and chill, as well as various places you can walk around and admire the scenery. We shot in our dresses together as well as the jewelry! I was given rings, necklaces, and earrings to showcase, and I loved all of them! I really like simple yet elegant designs, and the silver and gold really accented that. 

We each had several rings on each hand, and would place it all the way on the finger or on a knuckle. The elegant floral design was really pretty, and I love the accents around each ring! I also received two necklaces which were my absolute favorite- they were the perfect touch to my maxi dress. Layering two simple necklaces with different lengths looks super cute together, and adds a nicer touch to the overall look. My earrings matched with the necklace, and I also got an angel wing ear cuff which was super unique and cool! I felt pretty badass wearing the cuff. haha. The quality of the jewelry was good; it's not like the cheap ones that you get that smell like metal and are too light. These are a nice weight and have a nice feel to the skin! 

Love the simple yet beautiful jewelry that Baubles & Gems carries, as they went perfectly with our dresses and really accented the overall image. I now have a new appreciation for hand candy, and can't wait to work with them again in the future! 

Shoot w/ Christine and Allen

After our shoot at Annenberg, we decided to go to the Department of Water and Power to shoot our second outfits. The view that day was amazing, and we got to watch the start of the sunset together! It's so nice that you don't have to go to a rooftop to catch this beautiful view of LA. Instead, it's basically on a viewing platform surrounded by nice, serene waters. The building architecture was also super pretty and nice, and the reflection was really nice against the building. Thank you Christine ( for styling me and Allen ( for shooting me! It was super fun shooting with Christine for the first time! :)

Honey Belle

I simply love Honey Belle products! When I first heard about the product, I was surprised that everything was handcrafted and organic. As she is the same age as me, I decided to ask her how she got her inspirations to start this business and entrepreneurship. 

Honey Belle's passion on skincare and how she really believes how all products should be free of all chemicals and preservatives got me super excited for her products, and it did not disappoint! When I first got my package, I really like how it comes in a simple pouch that you can bring everywhere and put your skincare inside. The packaging of the product is simple but consistent with the theme. It is what's inside that matters most anyways! My favorite is of course their classic kissable lips and their hydrating facial mist. When my lips get dry, Kissable Lips is the perfect moisturizer, and I literally bring it everywhere with me! It was the biggest lifesaver when I was up in the mountains and in a drier climate. When I start out my day, I usually wash my face with the tea tree mosturizer (don't get it in your eyes because it burns!) followed by the day creme and finishing everything with the facial mist. I really like the hydrating facial mist because of the slight lavender scent it leaves behind. It's been a couple months now, and I have definitely noticed my face getting smoother and more clear! 

Seriously my favorite skin care brand right now- I'm so glad I discovered Honey Belle.  This brand also really cares about the customers and giving back to the community, and the passion that the owner shows definitely shines through the Honey Belle products. Check out to see what they offer and use my code "HBLOVESCELINE" for 15% off! 

Collab w/ Fevrie

I got the tied together dress on and fell in love! The package comes in a really nice light blue/ mint green Fevrie box, and is super sturdy. When I opened it, the dress was wrapped in tissue paper and folded carefully. 

Love the design on the back and the quality of the dress; the dress is heavier than I expected but the quality was also really nice! The tie around waist part accented my figure more, and matched with the back part of the dress. It was really easy to slip on, and the size small fit perfectly on me. Definitely a cute maxi dress for a casual day out or a nice dinner at night! Not too formal but not too casual. It's the perfect spring dress because the top part is super light and airy, so you won't get hot while wearing this dress.

It was super nice walking around in this dress in LA and so much fun shooting with Christine ( and Allen ( at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Los Angeles! Use my code "CLINARTE" for an extra 15% off until 4/15/15. :)
