Kiss The Ring

Ron Artest must be seriously insane! Dude has worked for 11 years to get an NBA championship ring, which he finally won last season with the Lakers. But now, Artest is auctioning off his championship ring for charity. He is either really a saint, or he's fricken insane! Artest will begin auctioning off the ring Oct. 27th, when fans can purchase a minimum of five raffle tickets for $2 each through Artest's website. The proceed will benefit Xcel University, a charity Artest supports, with funds directed towards two as-yet-determined mental health causes. One lucky fan on Christmas will then keep Artest's 2010 championship ring. 

Happy Halloween!!!

My girl and I decided to be Jwoww and Snook for Halloween at work. I know, I know, not very original or exciting, but it was actually fun, even though some people had no clue as to who I was. LOL.

Katy Perry just unveiled the new bottle for her perfume that's set to be released in November called, Purr (what else?!?), which will include the scents of peach, apple, jasmine, freesia, and musk. I don't know if I will run out and buy it, but I am feeling the bottle....too cute!

Prepaid MasterKARD

Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian are seriously taking over the world. The sisters are teaming up with Mobile Resource Card, with the ladies being featured on a prepaid Mastercard. I seriously can't say that I've heard of anyone else doing this. Will you be getting your Kardashian card?

**Update, the card is no longer available due to allegations that there are several hidden fees that may be illegal.**
Well that didn't last long! Next time ladies, triple check the company before you do business with them!

Hula's Modern Tiki

Another must to visit is Hula's Modern Tiki in downtown Phoenix which recently opened. It's very hipster-ish and something that you would never thought of Phoenix having, however it's very much welcomed. I went on Sunday with the bf and some friends and we sat outside for brunch in the beautiful, Fall weather. I kept an eye on all the patrons of the place, some cruising up on there beach cruisers (or just bicycles as they're called out here since we don't have a beach. Boo) and trendy hats and sneakers. I had the Kona coffee battered french toast and it was heaven. I want to go back one night for their dinner menu.

The Living Room

Over the weekend I met up with a girlfriend of mine and met at this new, chic wine bar called, The Living Room. They have two locations, one in Chandler, and one in Phoenix. The place was super cute, real chill and played good music. This is definitely not a night on the prowl to find a man. However it's definitely somewhere to take a date or to meet up with your girlfriends and giggle over cocktails. She and I enjoyed some bruchetta and wine. Very dope evening if you ask me. Definitely check it out if you're in the area.

Mabel's On Main

Last night I took the bf out for his pre-birthday dinner, just us two and I've been wanting to try this new spot called Mabel's on Main (it used to be Mabel Murphy's for some of ya'll that remember).

I loved it. Very chic in the heart of downtown Scottsdale, so you know it's trendy. The only con that I have is if you plan on going just for dinner, go earlier than 10. LOL. We had reservations at 9:30 and well by 10:15 the Scottsdale "IT" crowd was already making their presence known. We were sitting in the middle of the restaurant surrounded by all the people. I felt like an animal on display as I devoured my Chicken Lollipop and blue cheese (seriously to die for), while the bf grubbed on bites of filet w/ horseradish (he said it was delish). I recommend getting their probably around 7 so you can enjoy your food.  Also, don't go expecting a huge menu; it is very limited, yet very yummy.

Overall, I had a great time, with a great person, and enjoyed some nice drinks and food.

This is from their website:

Through the front door of Mabel's is our main lounge, where you will be immersed in the grandeur of a lost era. Studded leather seating, intricately embossed tin ceilings and dark wood furnishings are a throwback to times when sophistication and luxury were exclusive to all but a few. You will find our hand-crafted cocktails at your fingertips and a late-night menu at your disposal. The lounge is large enough to lose yourself in, if that is what you desire, yet small enough to feel subdued in an intimate setting.

More E.L.F

I'm telling you, I can't get enough of E.L.F. cosmetics. They are super cheap, yet the makeup itself isn't cheap. Today I received my newest order which consists of their Golden Bronzer for only $3 and it's fabulous.

I also purchased their mineral eyeshadow in Caffeinated which I wore today and I absolutely LOVE!

And their Eye Primer and Liner Sealer which sets your eyeshadow so you don't get the makeup creases along with the liner sealer which keeps your eyeliner from running down your eyes.

All of the above product was only $3 each, but if you subscribe to their website, they send you coupons all the time....the coupon I used for the above product was buy one, get one half off. I seriously spent barely $14 and I got like 6 things.

I also got their Natural Nymph lipstick... I've always worn Angel or Snob by MAC to give me that "natural", but I wanted something a little more nude, so I went with ELF's Natural color and I wore it today and I have to say, I'm impressed. So now, I'm going back online and buying like 3 more colors.

I just found out they now have cream eyeliner....I can't wait to use it. I'll let you know what I think when I buy it. I just received my product today and I'm already placing another order. They're having a sale right now....the buy one get one half off! Hurry, sale ends Oct. 4th. Happy shopping!
