I'm turning 27!! Ai ya...late twenties!

Hello. :)
I'm turning 27 on April 4th!! That's this Friday ahhhh!
Yes, those are EOS lip balms in my Martha Stewart for Macy's mini cake stand w/ cover!
I've collected all the flavors and I proudly have them displayed in the corner of my living room. ;)
 My friend Anita is visiting for my birthday later this week and we are going to work on spray painting these frames I've gathered all white! I spent months browsing Ross, TJ Maxx, Home Goods, and Marshalls for clearance picture frames. :) I think it will look super cool on a plain wall! #whiteframeproject 

We have lots of fun things planned for her visit!
We're going to hike Rattlesnake and hopefully Snoqualmie Falls!
Take spin classes together! Maybe another trampoline class! lol
We're planning on a trip to Vancouver BC, Canada too! She's never been there. It will be so much fun!! I'm ready for a mini getaway. :)
  Went to check out one of my friends finished project and it was incredible! They really did an amazing job building the modern townhouses. I'm super impressed. :) I love the backsplash they picked out. They even had the homes staged. I'm always on the look out for a good interior decorator and anyone who does interior staging for some upcoming real estate projects. :) I'm going to be helping with a half million dollar Seattle modern home project this Summer! Totally EXCITED!! ^_^
I couldn't resist an opportunity to take a photo of the bags of the day. ^_^ Red Chanel Jumbo, Caviar Leather w/ Silver Hardware & Classic Black Chanel Jumbo, Caviar Leather w/ Silver Hardware.
How cute is this bathroom? I love the cabinets and the sinks! 
This Seattle modern townhouse is 3 stories, technically 4 if you count this awesome roof top deck!
 I'm completely obsessed with OPI Sheer Tint polishes!! This is "Don't Violet Me Down" with "Desperately Seeking Sequins" on the ring finger (under the sheer tint polish). The tint polish is so building and I absolutely love the jelly effect!
I helped my friend Van of VanityPham (bridal beauty & luxury lash extensions expert in Bellevue, Washington!) set up her table at WedLocks in the Columbia Tower Club 75th floor! It's the tallest building in Seattle and the Pacific Northwest! ^_^ Look at that incredible view! 
Go see Van for lashes in Bellevue!! She does the new VOLUME lash extensions (life changing lashes!) http://vanitypham.com 
This is Wally right now. Haha, he's so odd sometimes in the cutest way possible. 

The best birthday present to myself: I closed my 4th property of the year yesterday! I sold a cute 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo in Bothell, WA. ^_^ It was a 6 months process because it was a short sale, but we did it!

Product Review: Sabi Tripod store + go travel container

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I signed up for Tomoson to check out what it's all about.  Who doesn't like "freebies." If you're a social media user, you can sign up and see what opportunities are out there for you. In my case, I prefer product reviews because I like trying out new things and I enjoy sharing my latest finds through social media. They have tons and tons of different products and topics available. I qualified to review this Sabi Tripod store + go travel container. It's a roll-up pill organize with three large lidded compartments. 

 When I think pill case, I think bead organizer because they make great storage for beads! :)
 I've never heard of Sabi brand before finding out about them through Tomoson. 
I think they're creative for recreating something ordinary to be more stylish & cool! Not to forget functional. :)
You pull on the tabs to open each compartment of the case, it fits up to 24 pills/vitamins.
The Sabi Tripod case is $14.99
I think the price point is on the high side, but it's no ordinary pill case.
I probably have the coolest looking pill case in my neighborhood. lol
(I'm wearing OPI "Toucan Do It If You Try" on my nails ^_^)
I like their motto, "elevate. everyday." Good words to live by. :)
I like learning about new products and businesses. I really wish I had more time to do explore them. However, I don't think I will be doing another Tomoson product review for a while. I prefer Influenster and their product review boxes, which I've shared before in the past.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Miss Dior Bag Update!

Classic Miss Dior Medium $3950 (Notice how the chain is different in the photo above.)
Classic Miss Dior Large (Pink) $4200 (This is my favorite of the ones the sales person sent!)
See the classic Miss Dior Bag in action with actress Jennifer Lawrence! :)
Classic Miss Dior (Red) w/ Gold Hardware, I'm assuming this is also $4200.
Miss Dior Sliding Chain $3400

I asked my friend to help me look into the Miss Dior bag and her amazing sales person sent some photos of the different styles and colors of the Miss Dior bag. I guess the bag I've had my eyes on is the Classic Miss Dior with the rectangular chain. I'm not a big fan of the new style shape with sliding chain. I do like that they're available in so many fun colors!
I wish their chain was more consistent, I'm a bit confused when it comes to this Miss Dior bag to be honest.

I still have a lot of research to do about Miss Dior, but it's been a fun getting my my mind into the world of Christian Dior.

But for now, I will continue to appreciate the beautiful photos of Olivia Palermo and her Dior bags. :)
I absolutely adore her burgundy w/ silver hardware Miss Dior!

 Jennifer Lawrence looks stunning in this photo!

 Her dress is gorgeous!

I'm such a fan girl. :)

OPI Brazil, "Red Hot Rio"

Red Hot Rio
A ruby red as hot as the most exciting city in Brazil.

This is my favorite red polish since OPI "Big Apple Red!" The formula is amazing and I got a perfect application with two coats. The red is absolutely perfect and I think it should be added to the classic list!
