|Strolling around the mall for three hours alone can be exhausting and amusing all at the same time. I accompanied my mom to a seminar in Makati but I vehemently refused to attend the seminar itself!! haha I went immediately to Landmark after dropping her at the seminar.I have been looking for a teasing comb ever since I got into hair styling. I wanted the teasing comb that Say got in her previous video and I also saw Noe with a nice teasing comb but they are not available in Manila. Sad! Then , I found this comb at Landmark for only 35 pesos!! I also found this super cute Leopard printed (fake gold plated.. haha) handy mirror. Would you believe that I do not carry a mirror in my makeup kit?! I also bought my very first oil blotting paper and a nice black feather earrings. I forgot to take a picture of these.|
|Lush is on sale! I got this for half the price! I love the almond scent and the SA told me that this soap is really moisturizing.|
|I bought this spa milk salt because my body needs major exfoliation!! I also bought the SNOE Here Comes the Sunblock. This brand is pretty popular with a lot of bloggers lately. Bec, told me that this one is really nice. This is also a proudly Filipino made product. Review about this product soon. |
|The beautiful Ms. Nica is sharing the product information of the BB cream.|
|The bloggers who attended the event. I was actually expecting a lot more people but Nico told us that due to their schedule, they could not come.|
Julia, Kira, Me, Phoebe, Say and the ever so cute, Helga.
|I will not miss this chance to take a photo of Phoebe with me. I am an avid reader of her blog like forever!|
|Helga's hair was the bomb!! :D love it.|
Guess who was my seatmate for that event?
|Say, did you get a nose job?? haha|
Her nose was very genuine! I am so jealous!hmpf! :D
Food Porn from Chef Jessie, Rockwell Club:

(on my lips -- nichido lip liner in rosette, Venus and Mars Lip butter in cherry berry as base then I top it off with Venus and Mars Lip Butter in pink posies.. Nice noh?? <3)
|This hair elastics are very nice.. My curly hair did not even get tangled when I used this.|
|The cute hairband from PinkBox which I got from their recent PinkBox event.|
|I added a bit of twist to the side ponytail. Tie your hair on the side and make an opening on your hair just above the elastic then tuck your hair in it. Then your side ponytail will look this afterwards:|
|Better than the simple tied hairstyle right?|
|This look is really simple and quick to do.. If you have waves or curly hair, this hairstyle will definitely suit you. :D|
More hair tutorials soon.
(well, nothing hard and intricate for sure!!)
PinkBox products are given to me for free during their PinkBox Party.

|Section your hair. The bigger the sections the bigger the curls and the smaller the section the smaller your curls are. I parted my hair into 5 sections since my hair is really thick. Start twisting your hair and create tiny buns like this:|
|Then let your hair dry. I had mine dried overnight. Yep, I slept with those tiny buns that is why I use hair elastics and not pins so as not to pierce my scalp. I sprayed a bit more water on those small buns.|
|Then, the next morning I looked at myself in bewilderment! Everyone in my house was laughing at me.|
|Slowly remove the elastics. Look at those big curls, baby! |
Apply 2 drops of hair serum again and run your fingers through hair. This will help loosen the curls.
|Wait for a few minutes and the curls will loosen by itself.|
|It turned to this.. :D|
Yeavah!! Zooey Deschanel kindly move over! haha
Apply your hair spray if you like but I did not sprayed on my curls since I want them bouncy and flirty.
The curls lasted a very long time on about half day. At the end of the day, you will have waves which is looks more natural. My hair does not usually cooperate when styled and I am very impressed with this method.
Hope you like this quick hair tutorial.. :D

|1. 2. 3.|
The first photo is my actual hair color. I know the color suck! It looks so uneven. I haven't touch it for almost 10 months (I think).
I really want to hear your opinions.Will I color it black? lighter brown? or a bit reddish? I am so confused. I am now sure that I will not have my hair rebonded because I am learning to style my hair. Thank you, youtube! haha
Btw, Thanks to all those who gave me an insight on what editor to use. I am now trying photoscape and I am really trying to get used to it. :D I really find it easier to use especially when adding watermark on my photos.

This is dermatologist tested and allergy tested too. I experienced no breakout or rashes in using this. There are three important points that I took into consideration in buying this foundation. It says that:
- It gives breathable coverage. It says that it contains micro minerals that won't clog pores.
- It hydrates skin since it has moisturizing properties.
- It is suitable for sensitive skin. It contains no preservatives (but it contains Parabens and made in China.. hmmm..) and no fragrance.
I can use this everyday because it is lightweight. However, it can make my skin a tad bit oily by mid day but not too much though. It just gives me that dewy glow (please take note that I have dry skin). The good thing is that it did not dry my skin. My skin can breathe underneath this foundation without feeling tight. When I first used this, I was really disappointed. It does not blend well at all and it creates those crazy streaks. It does not blend well with moisturizer. I realized that unlike my other liquid foundation which I apply immediately after applying my moisturizer, this foundation needed a different application because it has hydrating properties already. I now apply this foundation after my moisturizer has dried. It works!! I love using my Lumiere pink stippling brush in applying.
|The shade I got is OC3. It has yellow undertones but I still find it light for me. I sometimes mix this foundation with my SanSan Matte foundation in No.3. The texture is a bit runny.|
This is what it looks like on my bare skin. The before and after shot.
|You can see that my dark circles are really bad noh? My pores are very prominent on my cheeks and nose are|
|It did a good job of evening out my skin tone but it looks so light one me!! It also covered my pores. The coverage is light but not sheer.|
What I like about this foundation:
- It is lightweight and I can use this everyday.
- This did not caused me any breakouts.
- Not funky scent or fragrance.
- The pump bottle is very useful. You can control the amount of product very well.
- It has SPF18.
- I experienced no dry patches or areas when I used this.
- The shades are too light for most Pinays.
- It can give a slight white cast on photos too.
Over all, this product will suit women/girls who loves light foundation and it has a built in SPF 18 suitable to our weather. Will I buy this again? NO.
Me using the Maybelline Pure Liquid Mineral Foundation.
Please do not be deceived with my airbrush face here (and do not be angry.. Haters please let me use my camera by using the soft skin feature without fear of retaliation. haha). Thanks to my Sony H70, it has this soft skin feature that made me look poreless. Btw, picnik is closing down soon. This is an online site where I edit my photos because it is very easy to use. Now that it is closing, I really do not know where will I edit now. Does that mean that I must now learn how to use Adobe Photoshop? Wahh... I suck with computer programs. :C
Have a nice weekend.
