Drawing closer and closer

at 1:50 AM 0 comments
So y'all know that I'm starting my review real soon right? Guess what... it starts next week! T_T So my posts will definitely be less frequent but I still hope to be able to keep this blog alive. I'm still going to hop around and read your blogs though :)

Last November 16, a few of my friends who I haven't seen in the longest time and I were supposed to meet up. Unfortunately, our schedules didn't match. We ended up with three. But theeeen, one suddenly backed out as he had an emergency at work. So I ended up on a date with the lone friend with me. It turned out great because we were able to talk about a lot of stuff. And I had lots of fun. Really.

We ate at Burger King for meryenda. I wasn't hungry so I just had their Strawberry something pie. I ordered it because I was curious and well.. it was strawberry :D He had a double whopper meal (yes, for meryenda. What an appetite!).

Afterwards, we strolled a bit. And ended up eating again. Hahaha. We bought one mocchi each. Mine was chocolate and his was caramel. Have you tried this? So awesome, you gotta try it! :)

I forgot to take pictures of the content because I wanted to eat it as soon as it melted a bit. It's quite hard so you have to wait 2-3 minutes before you could sink your teeth into it. It was definitely worth the wait!

We strolled around again, and I looked at some accessories and whatnots which were on sale. Without me asking, he got me this:

A steal at Php99!
What a fun day it was! It's so nice having friends who you can truly depend on, be there when you need them and say anything without being judged. :)

Review: Tea Tree Peel-Off Face Mask

at 1:47 PM 5 comments
I got this product as part of my mini haul post because I was intrigued by the brand, and it was relatively cheap too. I did a quick research on it and found nothing useful. So basically, based on what I saw in Watsons, this brand carries different skincare products like facial wash, moisturizer, exfoliating cream, and this peel-off mask.

NOTD: HD Oily Cracking Nail Polish in sort of Royal Blue

at 12:02 PM 0 comments
It took a long time before I decided to write this post (and NOTD posts) because:
  1. I'm not really good in applying nail polish.
  2. I've got no talent in nail art.
  3. I don't buy nail polish that often.
However, I really wanted my blog to cover a lot of things, all related to beauty, fashion, well-being, and smizing up (though this term coined by Tyra Banks refers to "smiling with your eyes", I take it as leveling up or glittering up or any action that makes a lady feel confident about herself).

So here it is lovelies: my first ever NOTD :)

Review: iWhite Korea Nose Pack

at 11:09 AM 5 comments
I think the most common skin problem of men and women alike are nasty blackheads and whiteheads. What causes these impurities? Basically, its due to excess oil secretion and dead skin cells. It's a good thing several products are available in the market to treat this problem. Let's check one out: iWhite Korea Nose Pack. (part of this haul)

Luscious Lippie: The FaceShop Fruit Jelly Tube in PP401

at 1:38 PM 3 comments
I am not a fan of lipgloss, that's the reason why this product is practically the only gloss in my stash. How'd I get hold of it then? Well, a college friend gave it to me as a gift years back. (Ehem, calling Elisha-star!)

Smize Me: Nichido Girls' Night Out Eye Pencil in 01 Blackest Black

at 2:37 PM 3 comments
A true makeupista (say what??) always has black/brown eyeliner in her kit (whether gel, pencil, or liquid). It is one of those essential makeup staples that should never go missing. (how redundant do I sound?)

Eyeliner defines drama. It adds character and depth. Depending on how one applies it, and how thick, a whole look could change.

Hello Ladies!

This 11/11/11, I went out to see two friends whom I won't be seeing for a while because I will start my review for the CPA boards next week! (that's six months of isolation T_T). I bought a few stuff too from Watsons and Etude House. Hopefully, I get to review all of them before everything gets way too busy.

The brand name is "Tea Tree", something new to me

A 5-brush set

iWhite Nose Pack

Etude House Volume Falsies

PureDerm Nose Pore Strips

I'm so excited to try out the falsies as this is my first time to do so. Stay tuned! :)

Have you tried out anything from this haul? How'd it go? :)

PS. I forgot to take an individual photo of the GreenTea Nose Pack from Etude house. ^_^

One beauty product a girl shouldn’t be caught without is lip balm. What would be my best bet? No other than Nivea Fruity Shine Lipbalm in Strawberry.

Be a Diva, Love Diva (My First-ever Styling/Blogging Workshop)

at 12:00 PM 9 comments
I can now officially call myself a blogger! Why? Because I have attended my first-ever blogger’s event! Yay me! Before writing about the event, let me first tell you how it all happened.(READ: EXTREMELY WORDY)

I, a newbie blogger, had nothing. No knowledge on blogging, web designing, photo editing, no contacts, no network... nothing. But due to my newfound love for make-up and beautyblogging (which was sparked by reading beautyblogs), I still pursued it. I even thought to myself, why only now? Why only now that I am on my last semester of college did I discover my passion and what drives me to do my best? I have been warned by a friend that growth in blogging (especially blogspot) is rather slow than if I blog in tumblr or vlog on youtube which are the ‘in’terfaces to go for. I wanted to write (I used to write stories and poetry), I wanted to share my thoughts... and I think blogspot was the only way for me to go. Even if I only have 17 followers as of this writing, (shoutouts to you Lovely People! :D), I am not discouraged. As with what I have read in other blogs, a beautyblogger gets to go to events and establish new relationships. For me, I already have established relationships with these 17 people as they get to read my thoughts and what I have to say. And with me attending my first blogging event, I can say that, indeed,  I AM A BLOGGER. I can say this thanks to Love Diva (check out their facebook page here)

grabbed from their facebook page, I hope they don't mind ^_^

Smizing Up Tool: ModelCo Lash Wand Heated Eye Lash Curler

at 2:28 PM 3 comments
As any part of our delicate body, our eyelashes definitely need tender loving care. It needs to washed, conditioned and completely make-up free (when we intend it to be, of course). However, being the beautiful people we are (ehem), who constantly enhance our beauty by curling and stressing our delicate lashes, must exert extra effort to take care of it. It mustn't be tugged nor pressed on too tight. This is especially tough if our eyelash curler doesn't fit the eye shape that we have.

It's a good thing heated eyelash curlers such as ModelCo Lash Wand Heated Eye Lash Curler exist! :D

Review: Etude House Black Charcoal Chin Pack

at 2:45 AM 6 comments
In the market, I always see nose packs to remove blackhead and whiteheads on the nose. Why is it always for the nose? Probably because this is where those impurities are usually found. So when I saw this Black Charcoal Chin Pack in Etude House, I felt really glad as I started to have whiteheads all over my chin (which, by the way, suddenly appeared, I don’t know why T_T). I tossed it right away in my basket to try it out (part of my haul, view it here).

So cute~
Ready for some horrifying pictures? Read on (~'=_=)~

I am a newbie beauty blogger, hungry for experience. I find it difficult to live down South, because mainly, all huge events (blogging ones or not) are held in places in the North.

God knows how wide my smile was when I read that there would be a styling/blogging event held at Alabang Town Center! Read more about it here:

I hope Ms. Sarah Tirona of fashioneggplant chooses to mentor me so that I get to attend this event!

Quick Update and Whatnots

at 2:56 AM 2 comments
Hi Lovelies!

I'm so sorry for not writing for so long. I have lots of products lined up, either for reviews or for swatches. I'm having techie problems with the laptop, the camera, and removable storage. Adding up, my review for the CPA Boards is coming up reaaal soon... on the 21st. So I have to (I WANT TO) write as much as I can now to keep this blog (MY blog, MY baby) updated even if I'm reviewing already. But the situation doesn't permit me to do so. Or makes it harder, at least.

I'm so sorry for ranting guys, I just wanted you to know the reason for my absence. :(

I really feel sad that I'm stuck here, trying to fix this mess, instead of writing. Oh well, things like these are bound to happen anyway. I still get to read your blogs though, so I'll still be commenting around :)

Gotta get back to researching this shi~.

Hope to write again soon! Stay tuned :D

Random Post: Enlightening Sun Facts

at 1:38 AM 4 comments
I know it’s just nearing December and still too far away from summer, but with our climate changing and all, we still have to be aware of the damages the sun can do to our skin. When I bought a few stuff from Watsons, they threw in a small foldable flier from Vaseline amply entitled: Enlightening Sun facts. I must say it is really informative and should be known by all, men and women alike, so I decided to share it with you lovelies. Read on to know more :)
