Makeup Mondays: Currently Coveting + Shell High [Giveaway]

What up beaches!

Cheers to a three-day weekend, right?

Well you know its time for Makeup Mondays 'round here so in order to hurry up with the awesome surprise giveaway, here are some items I'm currently coveting.

Needless to say, NONE of these items are available to me here on Guam.  And sadly, even Sephora doesn't ship here.  So for now I just have to wish on a star that they will magically arrive in my mailbox one day - that's your cue, mom.

In case you haven't noticed, I'm a huge fan of sets.  The more the merrier, right?


Anyways, I bet you're wondering about the giveaway now, right?  Okay fine.

As you all know by now, I'm a huge fan of all things related to the ocean.  I've spent countless hours with my keikis (kay-keys: kids, children, offspring, brats) combing the beaches for shells, beachglass, and other treasures that the ocean has washed up for me.

Most of the items we collect end up getting lost and forgotten - or thrown around the yard - but my girl Ashley takes these little treasures and turns them into something even more amazing!

Aloha!  I'm Ashley Lau, creator of Shell High!  I am a 23 year old mother of two wonderful kids living on the beautiful island of O'ahu, Hawai'i.  I started making jewelry because I needed something to do where I could still be home with my babies (since childcare is so expensive these days).  And since going to the beach and diving for shells is my most favorite thing to do, what better than incorporate them into my jewelry, and let everyone have a little taste of Hawai'i.


Aren't those items amazeballs!?  The shells are all handpicked on the beaches of Hawai'i and then handmade into something wearable!

And now for the best part, Ashley has agreed to give away one gold shell bangle and a set of shell stud earrings (worth over $50) to one lucky reader!  (It could be you!)  Just follow the simple directions below in order to enter!

And even if you don't win, you can still order items directly from Ashley by emailing her at:
and be sure to follow her on Instagram at:
for updates on new items!

By the way, Ashley is offering free shipping until the end of the year!!

I've just given you the perfect gift idea for Christmas, now hurry up and go get em!

You're welcome.
