♥ NAIL ART: Glittery Winter

Hi everyone! Just wanted to share my simple yet elegant looking nails for the coming new year. This nail art design is perfect for prom, wedding, or for partying. I wore this last night at a party boat and I love how it sparkles. Here it is:

It is very simple to do, just paint white nail polish first then paint the tips only a glittery nail polish. It's up to you if you want different colors. For this nail art design, I used Caronia products: Platinum Glitter, White Satin, and their Fast-drying top coat. :)

This would be my last nail art design for the year 2012. There will be more nail art posts in 2013. Hope you enjoy your new year's eve. Happy New Year! Thank you for viewing! :)

♥ PHOTOSHOOT: Exquisite Love

Hi my dear readers! It's been a long time since I last blogged about my photoshoot. Well, here I am again with a photoshoot post. This shoot was taken in April this year. It was a 1 on 1 shoot because there was only me and the photographer. Don't worry, the photographer was a girl. :) She named the shoot exquisite love, I don't know the reason why. Anyway, less talk and here are the photos. :)

Hope you enjoyed viewing this set. I will have more photoshoot posts soon and some other posts. Stay tune and thank you for viewing! :)

♥ OUTFIT: Deep Blue

Flats: Artwork
Pants: Thrifted
Belt: Thrifted

Hi everyone! Just wanted to share what I wore awhile ago while malling. And I also wanted to thank the shop who sent me the peplum top. I won it from the giveaway of One Day. You know, I am really fond of joining giveaways. Lol! Anyway, that's it for now. I know that I have a really big thigh and I really hate it. :( It is one of the reasons why I can't blog about clothes. I am having a hard time blogging about clothes because first of all I am not a fashion blogger. I just want to blog about clothes just to thank the shops who sponsored the giveaway that I have won. Hope I can have outfit posts again soon. Thank you for viewing! :)

♥ DIY: Heatless Curls

Hi girls! Do you want to curl your hair but afraid to damage it because of the heat? Well, this DIY is for you. You can achieve bouncy curls like you came from having a digi perm without heat or chemicals. And it is not also time consuming which is very convenient to those people who have less time to prepare themselves like me. Lol! I will teach you how. :)

All you need to have are curlers. I recommend the foam curlers because we are going to put the curlers in the evening and stay it overnight. So, you will be able to sleep properly with the curlers on your head. :) Another thing you need is a mousse. It is actually optional, I did mine without mousse and it resulted perfectly.

Step 1: If you have the mousse, apply enough amount onto your hair.

Step 2: It's time to put on the curlers. Do not roll it upto the roots of your hair. Just up to the middle.

Step 3: Leave the curlers overnight and hope that you will have a goodnight sleep. Hahaha! Lol! Promise, the inconvenient sleeping will be worth it. :)

Step 4: It's morning already! Did you have a goodnight sleep? Haha! It is time to remove all the curlers, the most exciting thing to do when curling your hair. Hahaha!

Step 5: After removing all the curlers, run your fingers through your hair.

Step 6: If you want the curls to loosen up, use hair spray and while it's still wet, rub your hair downward.

And the finished look:

♥ NAIL ART: Santa Claus

Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas loves! Let us celebrate the birthday of Jesus merrily. And since I have nothing to do, here's another nail art design for Christmas season. This is going to be really quick post because I did not take pictures of the step by step. So, let us jump on to the final output. :)

It is very simple yet classy to look. Very easy to do also. I think there is no need to have a step by step process on how to do it. Just by looking at it, you will be able to do it. You can also put glitters except on the middle finger.

That is all for now, I hope I can be able to do makeup reviews soon. :( Anyway, stay tuned for more blog posts. Thank you for viewing! Have a happy holidays! :)

♥ EXPERIENCE: Lord and Lady of Excellence

Hi everyone! Just want to share with you one of the activities I joined in school. I don't usually join pageants because I know that I will never win a title. Hahaha! Lol! So, I was trying my luck when I joined this pageant at our school. I also joined because I know that I will be supported by my classmates. That's why I am so thankful to them. :) Anyway, there's no more to brag about so here are the pictures. :)

I am not really a pageant type. Maybe I will stick to ramp and image modelling. Lol! Hope you enjoyed viewing the photos. Thank you for viewing! :)

My thoughts: Hi everyone! First of all, I am so sorry for being MIA. I am just so busy with school work and activities. And I just have nothing to blog, hahaha! I just cut my nails short that is why I haven't done any nail arts yet. Anyways, I found a time to have a review and here it is. I tried Garnier products before and it didn't work with me very well so I always hesitate to buy the anti dark circles roll-on. But since I could not find any good eye cream yet, I substituted it with this one. So, as you can see on the swatch above, it is very light for my skin tone which makes me think that it will really brighten my eyes. So, it's not a big problem for me. I hope you can see the difference on the picture above, I applied the BB roll-on on the right eye only to compare it. You can clearly see the effect in person. I really love how it covered my dark circles and brightens my eye area. Another thing that I loved is that it didn't appear to be cakey, it looks so smooth and it lasts for hours. I also love its metal roll-on which makes it more easy to apply. Overall, I will rate it 5/5. I really love this product. I recommend this to those who has no time to apply makeup just to cover their dark circles. I will definitely repurchase soon. Hope this review was helpful. Thank you for viewing! :)

♥ REVIEW: Bench Clearpore Cleansing Strip

Price: P22.00
Bought at: Bench NCCC Mall branch
Availability: Any Bench branches

Description: Strip away the clogged dirt and oil on the pores of the nose with Clearpore cleansing strip by bench/. It effectively lifts away deeply hidden impurities for cleaner and less visible pores.


My thoughts: This is my first time to use a nose strip. I was hesitant at first if I'll buy one pack of nose strips because they are expensive for me and I am always thinking that it will have the same result with the diy nose strip. When I came across with this nose strip from Bench, I decided to give it a try, since it has only one per pack. I find a hard time putting on the nose strip because it easily sticks to the skin especially if its so wet. It won't stick if the skin is not wet by the way. For me, it has the same effect with the diy nose strip. But I find this more convenient to use than the diy. I also find this nose strip more hygienic than the diy. Hahaha! For me, since I am a busy and lazy person, I will prefer using this. If you want to do a diy nose strip, read my blog post about it here.

Hope this review was helpful. Thank you for viewing! :)

♥ NAIL ART: Rockstar

Hi everyone! Are having a great weekend? If you don't have nothing to do, perhaps you may want to do your own nail art. Here is another nail art tutorial. My nail art for the week is called rockstar. I called it rockstar because of the colors that I used. But if you want to experiment with colors, then you can do so. It's your preference. Now, let us start. :)

Step 1: As usual, apply your fave base coat to protect your nails.

Step 2: Apply a dark pink nail polish at least 2 coats. I used a neon pink here.

Step 3: The best way to achieve that pointy style, is to use a scotch tape. Cut a square from the scotch tape roll, it may not be perfect square. Then, cut the square in half diagonally. So, you will be able to have a two triangles. Do that again because you will need three triangles as seen in number 2 on the picture above. :)

Step 4: Make sure that the pink nail polish is completely dry before you stick the tape because it can ruin the nail polish.

Step 5: Now that the tapes are completely stuck on to your nail, apply a black nail polish.

Step 6: Immediately take off the tapes after applying the black nail polish.

Step 7: Repeat steps 3 and 4, but this time, overlap a little of the black nail polish.

Step 8: Then apply the silver nail polish.

Step 9: Lastly, apply your fave top coat to seal your design and add a beautiful shine. :)

And the result:

Here are the nail polishes that I used:

So that's it. It's actually very easy but it needs time and effort. Hope you guys enjoyed and learned from this tutorial. Stay tuned for more. Thank you for viewing! :)

♥ WISHLIST: Christmas

Hello there! I am back to being busy again with school stuff and others that explains why I am MIA. Hahaha! To keep this blog alive, here is a wishlist post. Christmas is coming soon and I want to go shopping but unfortunately, I'm just a poor girl. :( Hahaha! So I am calling out my Santa out there. Lol! Kidding. Anyways, here are what I wanted this Christmas if I will be able to save money. :)

1. Ipod Touch. The only reason why I wanted Ipod Touch so much is because I am very fond of playing games. I don't care if my phone is not with cam or colored, as long as I have an Ipod Touch, I will never get bored. Of course I want the very recent generation. Hahaha!

2. Samsung Galaxy S3. If I won't be able to have an Ipod Touch, an android phone will be fine with me for the same reason. 

3. Make-up Products. I don't wear makeup everyday but I love them. Hahaha! I use them occasionally. I love putting on makeup but I am not confident enough to wear it outside our house. Lol! But one of my dreams is to become a professional make-up artist someday. :)

4. Shoes. I love all kinds of shoes, it may be with heels, heelless, flats, sandals, or sneakers. I only have 5 pairs of footwear. 1 slippers, 2 flats and 2 with heels. If I am going to be rich, I want to have a walk in closet full of shoes, different kinds. I want to have a collection of shoes just like Imelda Marcos. Hahaha! What a dream. Lol.

5. Clothes. Of course, who doesn't want to have many clothes? Me, I love trying out different styles of clothes(tops, dresses, bottoms). So, yeah, it's part of my wishlist and forever will be on my wishlist. Lol!

6. Nail polishes. I think you already know that I really love putting on nail arts on my nails, that's is why I want to have more nail polishes. I want to expand my nail polish collection. And of course, I also like to have nail art tools and things for nail care. :)

7. Bags. Last but not the least, bags. I cannot go out without a bag. So, I definitely need at least one. I own 1 bag and I hate it because it easily gets ruined. -__- I prefer Bangkok bags because they are chic and stylish and their designs are cute.

So, here it is, my Christmas wishlist. They are not in order by the way. Pictures are gotten from Google. Hope you will have a great week end. Thank you for viewing! :)
