Lookbook: Knee High in the Sky and NEW blog link!

If you recall a few weeks ago, I've posed the question whether or not I should change my blog name.

Well, over the weekend my friend Andrew, of SndWav, was kind enough to help me with the transition. And I'm very much happy with the decision! I decided to change my blog url just so it's a little bit more appropriate for what I'm blogging about. But, I'm still keeping my blog moniker, yummiebitez :).

So in order to keep with my blog posts, please update your links to:


You'd still be able to access my blog through the old link, but please update your bookmarks, feeds, etc to the new blog link.

This blog will be going through some face lifts as part of the change. New banner, possibly a new layout, and maybe even a logo will be in the works. I hope you'll continue to join me with my beauty and fashion journey! I really appreciate all your support and for continuously reading and supporting my blog! I love you all!

So onto my lookbook entry for tonight, I found a lonely picture as I was organizing my picture folders. Seriously, going through your computer files should be a job on its own.

This asymetrical hoodie might look familiar to you right now. By the way, this picture was taken pre-ombre highlights and post-lighter hair. I actually wore this same top as seen on this post during the Downtown LA Artwork. I really love this top as you can tell that I've worn it at least four times since I got it. I bought it in a store in Downtown LA in Santee Alley. So casual and so comfy! For something so inexpensive the material is holding up pretty well after several washes already. Not to mention the fabric is really soft especially with the peach silk lining underneath.

What I really like about this hoodie is it's cool enough to wear as the weather transitions into Spring (but then again LA never really had a winter season at all), and I really love how it's long in the back.

Lookbook: Downtown LA Artwalk

Jeweled patent flats, Sam Edelman
Leopard print scarf, H&M (old)

Last night, the bf and I went to Downtown LA Artwalk. Downtown LA Artwork is every second Thursday of the month, and it has art and food trucks galore. It was my first time going last night, and I didn't expect it to be such a massive event! There were herds of people walking on every corner of the Historic Downtown area. Despite the crazy crowd, it was a great experience. I'd definitely have to go back again next month to try out more food trucks and see more galleries.

Can also someone tell me what's this type of shirt called? How it's cropped in front but long in the back? It's not a tunic or a jersey... so what is it? Thanks!

Happy Friday ya'll!

NYX Cosmetics The Black Label Lipstick (Review and Swatches)

As I first started my makeup journey, one of the brands that I fell in love with was NYX Cosmetics because of their price point and quality. Back then, searching for NYX cosmetic products was like a treasure hunt. They weren't easily available before, but I'm really glad they are now. More websites and stores, including Urban Outfitters, carry NYX Cosmetics. I used to only find them at some store in the outlets or during IMATS or other trade shows I would attend. But, I do remember back in the days, few years ago, when it was such a big deal when CherryCulture would have round lipsticks for $1! I pretty much hoarded all the colors. Good times.

This past Saturday, I had decided to take the plunge and go lighter. I wanted to be summer ready and got my ombre highlights. I'm officially a quarter blonde.


See after the jump for more pictures!

Urban Decay The Black Palette (Review and Swatches)

Happy Friday y'all! I've kinda fallen off the wagon for a minute with all the hustle and bustle of life. But good thing I've drafted up some reviews in between, so I'll have some product reviews coming at'cha! I hope ya'll missed me :D.

So last Christmas, I received a super generous gift from a friend of mine. I guess I have been a really good friend since I received a few makeup items that had been on my wishlist. And one of them is the Urban Decay The Black Palette.
