June 2012 Favorites


Hello ladies! On today's post it will be about June 2012 favorites! Yey! It is already July and I can't believe it. I only had a small amount of favorites since I have been rotating using all my make up. In terms of skin care and also body care its pretty much the same. Quite honestly I'm the type of girl that sticks by using the same body wash up until it ran out. I simply don't like to hoard those stuff since there is only little space in my vanity :(

Well lets start this blog shall we?



I'll start first with the non-make up/skincare/body care products. As of the moment I have been obsessed with Korean food and I just found this through my office mate. I have been loving vietnamese rice paper sauce and rice paper. Apparently this is called won ssam. I don't know if this is legit but if its spicy I'm all over it. I don't care if my nose runs or I turn crimson red but if its spicy I will eat it. I've also been loving fermented soy bean paste. This is actually used only when you eat ssamgyupsal or lettuce wraps but since we haven't been eating that I use this on top of my noodles or my bibimbap. I just absolutely love this! :D 

Moving on to the face products....


I have been loving this bb cream for the longest time I think I need to change it soon. I have been loving this because it just gives me that instant glow I need to prep my skin for the day. I just didn't like that it broke me out before but I have changed.  I'm currently running out of it actually so I think I will be buying another BB cream soon. Do you have any suggestions? 

I've been loving this one sooo much! I think out of all the blushes I've had this one is the one that I reach to when I'm in a hurry. I also keep this on my make up bag in case I'm running late for work so that I can just do my make up at the office. 


I've also been loving this Carmex Lip Balm. I basically used this every single day since it really moisturizes my lip and has that lip plump feel to it. I swear I was just blown away when I use this since it really did its job for my lips especially that the weather is changing a lot.


I've also been loving the Creamy Green Latte cleanser. I've basically been loving this because it moisturizes my skin without the dry after feel. I will do a more detailed review about this real soon so watch out for that. 


And last but certainly not the least I have been loving the Axe Anarchy scents for men and women. I'm only using the female scent but I still love the male one since it smells so sexy. And of course I will do a review about this real soon :D 




I was really surprised that I have lots of favorites for this month since I wasn't able to do one last month. 

What is your favorite for this month?? 

Let me know at the comment box. 

Have a great weekend! 

Much Love!

How To: Dress up for Your Body Shape


Hello ladies! 

Most people that know me personally know that I don't dress up much. Not that I don't have any style in my body but simply I don't give a lot of attention in that area, but when I do you better watch out LOL. 

But kidding aside dressing up is something other girls really give a big deal since it can really show how much you want to stand out without doing too much. 

I will be telling you on how to dress up for your body shape.

Wedding Make up Preparations


This coming October my brother is getting married to his fiance and she asked me if I can do the make up for the brides maids which I am part of and also my mom's make up. 

I am quite nervous since honestly speaking I am not an expert make up artist. I think she just saw my youtube videos and she had seen me with full make up on that's why she trusts me to much. I am honored and thankful that she trusted me in doing this. 

Although the wedding is still in October I am getting inspiration in making up looks for me, my mom and the bridesmaids. Its so nerve racking since I need to make the look similar to the motif of the wedding. Here are some of the options I've found so far. 


I like this look since its quite colorful and its good to do on fair skin. But the color is not fitted with the color motif  >.<


I know what you're thinking, I am only supposed to do the make up for the bridesmaid not the bride. I'm just going to get inspiration with this look. 


I actually don't know how to categorize this look since It looks more of a natural look rather than a bridesmaid right? But I love her blush! :) 

Can you suggest looks I can try out for the bridesmaids? I will also go on a shopping trip for make up within this month or next month for the things I can use for the wedding make up gig and also for future gigs as well so all of your suggestions are deeply appreciated! ^_^
 
I am terribly excited but nervous so wish me luck! 

Much Love!

Product Review: Avon's Simply Pretty Transforming Liquid Eyeliner





Hey Ladies! 

If you have noticed, this week is full of product reviews so if you have any products you want me to try like skin care or make up stuff please comment below so I can list them down. 

For today's review its going to be for the Avon's Simply Pretty Transforming Liquid Eyeliner. 

I was initially puzzled why it is called as such since it just looks like an ordinary liquid liner. The thing is this liquid liner can actually be in different colors of your peg so for girls who likes to experiment ala Lady Gaga with your make up you can definitely try this.

Product Review: Carmex Lip Balm


Happy Monday! I'm pretty sure most of you girls are now enjoying the sun since most of the weekend was gray and rainy.

A Great Gift for the Runner Dads out there




This is something for dads who are always on the run...well into running.

Is your dad always up for a challenge? trying to outlast or outrun what he sees as
his rival? It may not necessarily be another person; it could be just himself.

Dads who are fond of joining marathons and even triathlons definitely belong in this category, because they keep at it for the simple reason that they always want to be at their best - especially when they are running.

With his ultra-competitive nature, it can be a little tricky to get him something that he would love on Father’s Day. It's a no no to get this dad a tie, handkerchief, polo shirts or a wallet – simply because he isn’t like any other dad.

Healthy Options for a Father's day gift



Hello ladies!

Before I begin this post I would just like to greet all the dads a happy father's day!

And since its that time of the year again to show how extra special they are to us. And what a better way to do that but buy him a special gift for his day!

Haters Gon' Hate More - I.DON'T.CARE



The title may seem so bitter and full of spite but that is just how I feel about haters...sometimes. If you are one of my subbies on my youtube channel you will know that I've had a fair share of videos responding to these hateful comments from some one who I don't know why hates my videos.

This video was actually sent to me by my friend Marge A.k.A. Kikaytrekkie a couple of days ago and lucky enough I was able to watch it at home last night.

This is my respond to you dear haters somewhere in the deep parallels of the internet.

Make up 101: Make up Tools



In make up it is really important to have the proper tools in applying make up because one thing I know is blending is key to getting the perfect make up look.
 
Besides from our hands, make up tools such as sponge tip applicators, sponges and also brushes holds the key to getting that look all together.

My very first out of the country package has arrived!


Hey ladies! 

Last June 7 my mom gave me this paper when I just woke up. I was a bit shocked since its a notice from the post office. I was expecting a parcel from a friend in youtube and also from another one but I did not expect that it would be that quick. 

I was also shocked since I've heard stories about paying over the said amount noted on the notice you got and other stuff. I was really nervous since I don't have a lot of money with me so I was hoping that it wouldn't cost me an arm or a leg or both to pay for it. Thankfully it didn't and also the post office personnel didn't bother to open my package there since it was really small. 

Make up Look: Daytime Smokey Eyes


Hey ladies! 

I haven't done a tutorial in a while and I think I should post this one since I like this look. Its simple and easy and good for everyone. 

I'll be posting more tutorials once I'm done editing them. 

Here's a close up look of the eye make up. 


Products used:
Ever Bilena Studio Finish Foundation in Creme (Not shown in the video)
Ever Bilena Matte Foundation (Mousse Foundation)  as concealer (Not shown in the video)
MaxFactor Eyebrow powder (not shown in the video)
Jordache Eyeshadow Palette
Careline Shine Free blush in peach glow
Ever Bilena Transforming Liquid Eyeliner
Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Mauvey
Ever Bilena Extreme Lipstick in Pink Goddess. 
Avon Total Curl Mascara 


Here's the steps on how to achieve this look. 

1. Apply Foundation, concealer and define your brows
2. Apply Taupe shade all over the lids
3. Apply brown eye shadow on your crease. 
4. Blend the brown eyeshadow and also the harsh edges. 
5. Bring down the brown eyeshadow on the outer half of your water line. 
6. Curl your lashes and apply mascara. 
7. Apply brown eyeshadow as your eyeliner. Make the line as thin as possible for a natural look. 
8. Apply peach blush on your cheeks
9. Apply nudish pink lipstick as a first coat. 
10. Apply another shade of pink on top. 

And there you have it! 


This look is very easy to pull off especially for work. Its easy, fast, and it enhances your natural beauty. I've worn this look a couple of times to some functions in which a lot of people have complemented me with this look. I really like it! :D 

My hair did not cooperate much with me in this tutorial for some reason #ohwell



Much Love!

Kpop Fridays: Boyfriend!


Happy Friday! 

Every night after I walk Georgia, I would either go online to check posts/answer emails/tweet or RT/blog/Facebook and watch youtube, but there are days that I prefer to just watch TV and I mostly watch programs from TVn which is a Korean cable station.

May 2012 Hauls - Koshize, Ever Bilena, Avon, Victoria Secret


Hello ladies! Happy Monday! 

I went all out last May with purchasing some items. I kinda like it but hate it also since I am intending on saving up some money... oh well but let's get started shall we? 


1. Lippies! 

I bought four lippies which are:

Ever Bilena Lipstick in Sunshine -- Nude / Brown Shade 
Price: 160PHP (approx 3.67USD)

Kozhize Lipstick in Dazzling Peach -- Peach Shade
Price: 160PHP (approx 3.67USD)

Victoria Secret Lipstick in B03 and B06 -- B03 has a baby pink with a little frost shade while B06 has a peach - salmon like color. 
Price: 100PHP/each (approx 2.29USD/each)


I know I have tons of lippies in my collection but I just can't help it :D these are my addictions if you can say.



2. Face Masks + Face powder

Since Avon had a sale...well they always do but they had a sale on their face masks which got me interested.  And since I haven't had a face mask in a while I bought this two to try out. 

Avon clear skin blemish clearing face mask 
Price: 129PHP (approx 2.96USD)

Avon naturals tea tree oil and green tea mask
Price: 99PHP (approx 2.27USD)

Avon Simply Pretty pressed powder (not in the picture)
Price: 75PHP (approx 1.72USD)



3. Body Wash

I bought two body washes this month because I have been loving body washes for the longest time. For some reason they just makes my body feels a bit fresher than soap bars for some reason. 

Keri bath chamomile and cucumber body wash 
Price: 60PHP (approx 1.38USD)

Victoria Secret Forever Blushing body wash 
Price: 500PHP (approx 11.46USD)

And lastly


4. Accessories! 

I am loving accessories nowadays since they really make a difference in my outfit. I bought these two for 150PHP (approx 3.44USD) each which is a great deal. 



Those are the stuff I got for this month of May. I just hope I won't be able to spend that much within the month of June. 

Wish me luck! :) 

Much Love!
