Usually tiki cups are used for alcoholic drinks like mai tai’s and tiki punch, however not all of us are great bartenders. Maybe I am speaking for myself on that one. Ha!
These tiki cups were acquired at Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar located near the Disneyland Hotel but you can use any tiki cups that you’ve thrifted because you’re cool like that. Once you have your cups, the next step is to pick up your various types of succulents from your local Lowes or Famers Market. I really enjoyed arranging the succulents in the tiki cups till and you can play with them till you’re happy with the aesthetic.

There is nothing more lame than the striking feeling of loneliness when you are surround by couples at restaurants or at Disneyland. Sure most people give zero fucks, but some of us are very aware of our surroundings. We can’t help it. And as I read through dating advice on Elite Daily, I feel like we ARE responsible for being single. However, it is total bullshit for people to think that the reason we are single is due to the notion of fairy tale love and have come to terms with the saying ‘ True love comes to those who wait,’ but it is not.
Seriously, for myself and many other of my friends who are single, we are aware of what we want in a relationship and in a person. Our previous experiences have shaped those expectations, yet they remain highly realistic in the sense that if I am willing to invest in you, then I would expect the same in return. No one wants to waste their time either, which should explain why people would rather hook-up than to jump into a relationship via Ok Cupid.
There is someone I know who is constantly dating and looking for the ‘right’ person to begin a relationship. Lets’s call this person John. He is an older guy and isn’t bad looking at all, with a great income and education. After having talked to him about dating, he concluded that he is not just looking for some large-busted blonde to wife-up. It is beyond looks and comes down to intelligence and chemistry. At first I didn’t realize how hard it was to find someone with those traits. But damn, it is like the Starks who are trying to save Sansa from the House of Lannisters. Nearly impossible, but there is hope! John can be considered a picky man, but he is just looking for someone who can hold a conversation and isn’t such a floozie. Can you believe he went out with a girl my age (23) and she didn’t know what was 3% of a 100. Her answer was 7 *hand to head*.
To say being single is the worst thing ever has clearly not been single for long enough. I personally have not had a boyfriend for more than a year now but I have dated. Dating is fun and you end up meeting some weird people along the way, but at least you have some stories to tell your friends. And believe it or not, us ‘singles’ are ready and taking chances to meet a great person (notice I don’t say perfect okay!).
Aside from being a major fan of her clothing and accessory line GIZA, Mademoiselle Yulia sports some sick style.

She made her way to the West Coast not too long ago with the help of Los Angeles based brand, JOYRICH and has been a non-stop force ever since.
Take a look at some of my favorite outfits Mademoiselle has caught our eyes.

Rick Baker, Steampunk Frankenstein
It’s Christmas in October! Well it was for me a few nights ago because I was given the chance to attend Rick Baker’s Halloween party. The best part of it all….IT WAS IN HIS STUDIO. Yes, I geeked out majorly because Mr. Baker has been featured in credits for legendary productions such as Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller, and How The Grinch Stole Christmas, just to name a few for his work in special effects makeup.
The ghoulish party was an event to celebrate Rick’s recent collaboration with MAC Cosmetics, who’ve released a collection based on three monster looks. Can you guess the three creepy creatures?

When one is invited to a Halloween bash hosted by an epic monster maker, you can expect some of the most amazing costumes. This statement was fulfilled to its capacity. In attendance, there was the delightful Kelly Osbourne as the lilac hair -colored comedy queen Dame Edna along with Andy Garcia who was in full Dia De Los Muertos costume. However the crowd favorite had to be internet famous, Grumpy Cat who was caught several times on the dance floor getting his boogie on.

As for myself, this has had to be one of the best parties I have attended during Halloween! The event had a bunch of creative makeup artist together, an awesome DJ who played all the right tunes from films like ‘Ghostbusters’, and a tour of Rick Baker’s studio that was such a kind gesture of him. It was a complete honor to have been invited and I can’t wait to create my own monster look with MAC goodies I received at the end of the night! Check out more images from the party below!
