Best New Restaurant in Santa Barbara: Cielito

I recommend you get over to the new restaurant everyone is talking about.  It features a taqueria and a full service restaurant, that has Mexican fusion cuisine.  That restaurant is Cielito, located in La Arcada in, Downtown Santa Barbara.  My mothers BEST friend, Karen Phillips, is actually one of the owners of this hot-spot and we have reaped the benefits of being on the inner circle.

First off, the menu is to die for.  Everything from Tamales to Ceviche is made fresh with the best local ingredients.  You can really taste the difference!  Secondly, the setting of this restaurant is stunning from the hanging lights, to the gold mesh curtains, to the marble floor, everything is top-notch.  This place is a treat for your eyes and your stomach. If you do not have time for a leisurely meal, stop by the Taqueria where you can get food to go!

Here are some highlights of this place:

A Few of My Favorite Things That I Couldn’t Live Without

Make-Up Essentials

  • Smashbox, photo finish color correcting foundation primer:   This foundation primer works best when used before you apply any foundation or concealer.  It evens your skin tone and softens your face.  I have been using this for about 4 months since I came upon it at Sephora.  While getting my makeup done at Sephora, the lady pointed out that I should try and use this primer before I apply my foundation because it will make your complexion smoother and easier to rub in your makeup.  I decided to get it and boy was she right.  I highly recommend making this purchase because it will make your face feel less caeky and more soft and smooth!  linktophoto
  • DiorSkin Forever Flawless Perfection Wear Makeup:  For me, it has always been hard to find the right foundation that fits my skin tone and conceals at the same time.  Before using this I used Make-up Forever sold at Sephora and  didn’t love it because it made my makeup look thick and cakey and it felt like I was wearing  a mask that didn’t  fit my skin tone.  Now that I have found this great foundation I am so happy because it feels really light and conceals redness and  irritation of the skin perfectly.  This foundation is pretty expensive but I think its worth the extra money because  it works and makes you feel your best!  I recommend buying this online at Sephora.  linktophoto
  • Jane Iradel Mineral Foundation:  Being a BareMinerals lover, I came upon this gem at Planet Beauty in Santa Barbara (a beauty supply store where I live).   This is a foundation, powder, concealer and sunscreen all in one, but I tend to put this on over my other foundation because it gives me a smoother look. Being rated 5 stars on every single review, you will be guaranteed an amazing complexion and will be worth every dollar you spend!  You  can buy this online at the Jane Iradel Website.  linktophoto
  •  Maybelline Mascara:  I have been using this mascara for 2 years and love it.  I’ve tried using the other Maybelline mascaras but the define-a-lash green one is my favorite because you can have it for several months without it getting old and clumpy.  The orange Covergirl mascara I used before the maybelline would get bad and clumpy in a very short time! I think this is a very worthwhile  purchase because it works well and lasts along time which will save you money, even in the short run.  You can get this mascara at: drug stores, Walmart, and Target.  Link to photo 

If you  love makeup as much as me, I highly recommend  an app called Makeupally.  On this app  you can read reviews on makeup products based on people with your skin type. linktophoto

Once A Year Trip To Big Bear, California

My family has made a tradition of going to Big Bear every Winter Break.  We have gone four years in a row, and left with such great memories that still to this day make me laugh.  From going up the wrong ski lift, to funny board game mistakes, Winter Break always seems to have a lasting effect on my family. We have never been away from our house on the actual Christmas day but we usually go the day after to Big Bear.  This is because we can’t not be in our own house with our own Christmas tree and decorations filling the house on the best day of the year!  Ya I know, why would I be talking about Christmas time in March, going into Spring Break… this is because I took so many photos in Big Bear this year and never got to post them! Well here is the photos of my family and I, enjoy!

Neat Drawings I Came Upon





All of these photos have a different feeling and mood that makes them individually unique.  I love the original strokes and florescent colors that are in the bottom two photos.  In the top two photos, the clean lines make the drawings seem clean and preppy, making the colors they chose against the black to really pop.  If you also like these click on the links to see more!


The Best of Terry Richardson

These are all of my favorite pictures that are from Terry’s Diary.  He takes such cool photos and inspires me to take photos!  I am always pleased by his new photos, and I love it when he takes pictures of people that I love like Paul Rudd, Lana Del Ray, Kate Moss, E.C.  If you also love Terry’s Diary and have better photos to share let me know! linktophotos
