Week 7 NYX Event and Good Eats


Hey guys, back with another My Life post for ya! Derek and I are about to head out to meet up with his friends and then I head back to Canada in a couple days. Can’t believe how quickly this trip flew by! I don’t want to think about leaving, but you gotta do what you gotta do and I need to get back to work. Miss my CH fam! Plus I’ve got a couple of Valentines segments coming up, I’ll let you all know when they’re on ;)


Week 7 Acai Bowl WestBean Coffee Roasters


So this week was a lot of fun and there are so many pics to share. I discovered a new coffee shop and tried an acai bowl for the first time. How come nobody told me they were so delicious?! Definitely going to have to start making these at home. This one was from WestBean Coffee Roasters in San Diego. The acai part was semi frozen and tasted like ice cream. Yumm. I also got to meet up with my Canadian friend Melis! She’s a youtuber as well. Hey what can I say, Canadians tend to flock to each other!


Week 7 Deepa Berar MelisMelis


Derek made the most amazing seafood salad the other day. He was trying out a new salad dressing recipe and it was unbelievable. Artichoke & lemon base and then some herbs mixed in. Sooo good. I’m really going to miss his cooking when I go back home.


Week 7 Chef LaVelle Seafood Salad


Saturday Derek and I were invited to the launch party for the Love you so Mochi collection by NYX in LA. Here’s the makeup I wore. You guys know how much I love my NYX Glitters!


Week 7 NYX Love You So Mochi Event Makeup


The party was at Elevate Lounge which was on the top floor of one of the high rise office buildings in Downtown LA. It was really nice cause the walls were windows that went only halfway up. Felt like you were outdoors and there was an amazing view of downtown. They’ve really done a great job revamping the downtown area.

Derek and I. He really is the best party partner. Such a good sport! He was trying to make sure I got in some pics when I went all fan girl over the other Youtubers there.

How Your Diet is Directly Linked to Your Health with Dr Sarah Ballantyne

Dr Sarah Ballantyne on the Deep Beauty Podcast


New podcast episode up! Guys I got to interview Dr Sarah Ballantyne, author of The Paleo Approach, the book I followed when I was on the AIP diet. I wanted to share her knowledge with you all because she backs so much of the why’s of the diet with hard, scientific fact.


When I was going through the alopecia, reading all of the ways the food you were eating was going to help your body on a biochemical level just gave me such immense peace of mind!!


Dr Sarah Ballantyne on the link between Diet and Health



If you are suffering from an autoimmune disorder or some other health issues that you haven’t been able to figure out, you have to read her books. She also has some great recipes you can recreate and a whole bunch of info on her website,

Week 6 Deepa Berar and Derek LaVelle


Guys! This is our 6th weekly My Life post! This is so much fun, love sharing my life with you! How was your first week of 2018? Can’t believe we are a week in, feels like it flew by so fast, and sooo much has happened!


We’re gonna take this back to New Years day, Derek and I ended up doing a picnic on the beach. Ok, so I have this silly superstition, I think the way you spend the 1st day of the year is an indicator of how you will spend the rest of the year. Silly, I know, but it’s just something I’ve always had at the back of my mind, which is why I wanted to make sure Derek and I got out of the house, did a ton of walking and spent quality time together.


Week 6 Coronado Beach


We had plans to drive up the coast but ended up staying local and hitting up my fav San Diego beach, Coronado. It’s one of the first beaches I visited on my first trip out here and still in my opinion the nicest. It’s on Coronado Island and you have to take this super scary bridge to get there, but it’s so worth it when you do. Just beach as far as the eye can see :)


Week 6 Del Hotel Coronado


Another great thing about it is that at the one end there’s the Hotel Del which is super famous. Celebs and even presidents have stayed there. It’s huge and pretty and yes a touristy spot, but I actually enjoy being around tourists. I know it’s not what people are typically into, but for me I just feel like it’s so fun being surrounded by tourists because the one thing about vacationers is that they’re just always in such a good mood lol. Who doesn’t want to be around all that positivity??


Week 6 Ice Skating in Coronado


One thing I didn’t know they had was ice skating by the beach!! So cool.  It’s literally outdoors and you have a view of the beach while you skate. Derek and I are definitely going to try that next year.


Week 6 Ice Skating at the Del Hotel


We LOVE to do picnics on the beach and with Derek being an amazing chef and all, the food is so delicious. We joke that we’re probably the only people on the beach with a gourmet spread in our basket lol. Seriously one of our first picnics he packed seared ahi tuna, wasabi dip and baked brie. Think he was trying to impress me. It worked ;)


Week 6 Deepa Berar Coronado Beach


The weather wasn’t warm enough to go into the water, the Pacific ocean is actually pretty cold except for in the summer. So different from the Atlantic. We did so many road trips down the east coast when I was growing up, we didn’t make it out to the west coast until I was 19.


Week 6 New Years Beach Day in Coronado


The rest of the week was business as usual, kicked off your Makeup 101 series which is something I’m so excited about and you guys have been requesting.


Week 6 Filming Youtube videos


Another exciting thing was I got to interview Dr Sarah Ballantyne for the Podcast tomorrow!! You guys will remember Dr Ballantyne wrote the Paleo Approach book which is the diet I followed for the alopecia.


Week 6 Dr Sarah Ballantyne Podcast Interview



The most exciting thing that happened this week though was…my brother had another baby!!! Kai has a baby brother, Rai. He is sooo cute and I can not wait to meet the little guy :)


How was your 1st week of 2018? Do you have any weird superstitions?

The Biggest Beauty Trends for 2018!

Beauty Trends 2018


Yup you read that right, got your biggest beauty trends for 2018 right here for ya! I’m excited about the look for spring, super pretty. Spring colors and fall colors are the best aren’t they! These were the most popular beauty looks seen on the runways for Spring/Summer 2018.


First up is a look I’ve been wearing a lot lately, smudgy brown eyeliner. My fav product to achieve this look- MAC Eye Kohl in Teddy. Apply it along your lash line and smudge it out with a q-tip or pencil brush.

Beauty Trends 2018 Smudgy Brown Eyeliner

Next up we have your glowy highlight. Highlight and contour has been around for a while now, but the difference this year is there’s less emphasis on contour and the highlight is used not just on cheeks but on eyes as well. The resulting look is an overall glow. So pretty. Loving the Charlotte Tilbury Bar of Gold for this.


Beauty Trends for 2018 Bar of Gold Charlotte Tilbury


Finally, and this is the most fun trend of the season, pastel eyeshadows are making a comeback! Pastels are so pretty and fun to work with and the NYX Love you So Mochi palette has some pretty great colors to pull this look off. Not to mention how creamy they feel. Love.

My Life: The Last Week of 2017!

Week 5 Derek and I NYE 2017 Hard Rock San Diego


Happy New Years to all of my beautiful blog readers!! Can you believe another year has come and gone? I think the older you get the quicker the years seem to pass. Anyways, how was 2017 for you guys? It was a pretty crazy, fun packed year for me. Derek and I got married, Kai turned 1, my bestie came to visit after 4 years and I hit 13,500 subscribers on Youtube!! Can not wait to see what 2018 brings.


We are kicking off the new year with a little picnic on the beach, but before we head out I’ll take you guys through my past week. Christmas was so much fun and brought so many presents! One of my fav things- these white leather converse sneakers. White sneakers are perfect with most casual outfits. I have my hubby to thank for these!


Week 5 White Leather Converse


Derek was off work for half the week so we headed down to Harbor Drive to watch the Orange Bowl parade. America sure does love its parades. This one was for the college football game between Michigan and Washington. I didn’t realize how big college football is but it’s HUGE. Everything in the States seems to be on another level altogether.


Week 5 Orange Bowl Parade San Diego


Derek and I :)


Week 5 Derek and I


We wanted to watch the parade but we hadn’t even had breakfast so we found a great spot at Carnitas Snack Shack. It’s an outdoor bar/restaurant at the Embracadero where alot of the bigger boats and cruise ships dock. We love this spot and it gave us the best view of the parade!


Week 5 Orange Bowl Parade at Carnita's Snack Shack San Diego


I also discovered a new Rosé I like. I think I was more convinced by the bottle. How pretty is this? Sadly though I think I’m going to have to scale back on the wine. Seems to be giving me a mild skin allergy lately. It’s so tough to know what you react to that’s why they say you should try an elimination diet if you are going through any auto immune issues. We did see a sulfite remover/aerator that we might pick up to see if it helps.


Week 5 Rose


Ok so guys, I know this might not be exciting to you, but I beat Derek at Trivial Pursuit. This literally never happens. Derek is one of the smartest guys I know, like he knows almost all the answers when we watch Jeopardy. The only questions I beat him at are the science ones, go figure lol.


Week 5 Trivial Pursuit


Another awesome thing happened, I got to finally try Derek’s infamous Green Goddess dressing! People at his work go nuts over his dressings and sauces and I can totally see why. It was the best salad dressing I’ve ever had in my life! I had it while editing videos for the week.


Week 5 Chef LaVelle Green Goddess Dressing


Saturday night we wanted to get out of the house for a bit so we headed to this dive bar we’ve heard a ton about called the Cherry Bomb. Literally has the nicest owner you will ever meet and the drinks are super strong.


Week 5 Cherry Bomb San Diego


For NYE we decided to stay in this year. Ok you guys know I’m a little extra sometimes so yes I went full glam even though we were staying at home. Makeup, hair and a red dress lol.


Week 5 Deepa and Derek LaVelle NYE 2018


I’ve been using the Too Faced Cocoa contour palette as eyeshadow lately, seems to work pretty well. Paired it with the NYX glitter in Bronze and Velour lashes in Trust me Try it. For lips I went simple with Faux lipstick from MAC. Oh and the Happy New Year hairband from last year of course lol!


Week 5 NYE 2018 Deepa Berar


Would love to know what are you guys hoping to make happen in 2018?

Outtakes 2017!

Outtakes Deepa Berar 2017


In honor of the last video of the year, I thought I’d do an outtakes one! If you have been following me for a long time you’ll remember my old videos always had outtakes at the end of them. I did that because outtakes/gag reels are my absolute fav part of any movie or show. The reason I don’t include them now is because I don’t mess up nearly as often as I used to. Which I guess is a good thing, but sometimes I miss it because it shows more of my personality.


People that know me in person know that I’m not super serious and I love to laugh and have fun as much as possible. Definitely a little too goofy at times lol.


Anyways, here’s the vid! Hope you guys like it. Oh and the part where the light kept changing, swear it kept happening like every 30 seconds during filming of that video!!



Happy 2018 everyone :)
