Mani Monday: Textured Thread-Like Stripes/ Nail Polish Webbing Tutorial

Hey guys!! Last night, because of the typhoon, our lights went out and I don't have anything better to do so I  thought of what Mani Monday Tutorial I want to create. Lots came into my mind, the requests, one from the lineup on my memo board or something out of the ordinary.  Then I thought that I would like to do a textured nail art this time around and the first thing that came into my mind is Spiderman 3... LOL. So, I started from there and ended up experimenting on what I call "Nail Polish Webbing." So yeah!!! I hope you like it and let's get this Mani Monday tutorial started!!

Pocket Saver: Things To Consider Before Splurging on Makeup

Hey guys!! Every time my girl buddies and I go to the mall, of course we depress ourselves by stopping by high end makeup stores. Because surprisingly, I'm the makeup junkee in the group, I'm often asked about their makeup emergencies to the point I just send them the links to my DIY tips coz I'm too lazy to explain. Ha! This morning, some of my friends have decided to buy new makeup and they rushed into texting me "Should I buy this?" or "Is this really good?"... Well I'm not always here, so I decided to make a post about it and I thought that I can also share with you guys the things I consider before buying high end products. So yeah... Let's go ahead and get started!

Face Facts: Aegyo Fat and Pink Pout

Hey guys!! It's been a while since my last FOTD post. My last one was like four months ago so I decided to do another face facts for you. Today I'm going to show you my typical look in school, at the shop, everywhere. It's seriously like a built in mask for the past few week for me. I'm too in love with it to think of another everyday look. I see it in most Korean stars when they are sporting an everyday look  What I like about it is this look make the fat under your eyes look pleasant. I have ginormous aegyo fat so that is a big plus for me. If you don't have those things under your eyes, lucky you. But if you want to sport the look that most Koreans wear, it's bothering but I have a method on creating an illusion that you have them. Comment down below if you want a tutorial!! ♥.. Anyway I hope you like it and let's get right into it!!

Heart to Heart: Answering Questions Before They're Asked

Hey guys!! Last night I did a lot of thinking. About life, studies, family, my blog, then a lot of questions came into my head. Call me pessimistic but a lot of those questions were negative. What if one day some of you guys would hate me? What if one day you'll just forget my site? Like those questions... The I started thinking of questions that I often see in "controversial" sites plus some negative hypothetical questions asked by my friend Lian and trying to answer it myself. So today I decided to answer those questions through a post not because I hate being disliked but coz I hate being misinterpreted. Trust me I've been on that road waaaay long. If you are not interested in my life that's ok you can wait for more beauty posts soon. I just want to make everything clear before it starts, you know what I mean? So let's just see these questions and get started!!!

Iambabypanda's Rainy Day Giveaway *Closed*

Hey guys!! Preliminaries are over, so I want to celebrate with you guys. A friend of mine went to Korea the other month to stock up her shop. She bought me some gifts but she didn't know that I already have those, so I asked her if I can do a giveaway with it since she is planning on sponsoring a giveaway with me as soon as her online shop has been opened. I thought a lot about the theme so why not a rainy season giveaway since the products that I'm giving away are very long lasting. I received the last product that I'm waiting for yesterday so we can officially begin!! I hope you like my giveaway and let me show you the prizes!

Earthy Love: Lancome Color Design Shadow Quad in Chic, Positive, Faux Pas, Designer Review

Hey guys!! A few months back, my sister, Ate Mimi came home from Canada bringing lot's of beauty stuff. Me being too overwhelmed, I eventually forgot some of them until recently, I rediscovered those forgotten loot while I was cleaning my room keke.

But the great thing here in the Philippines is that everything has testers, even in drugstores. So you won't have to make a mistake in buying products that won't suit you. Anyway, my sister brought lots of free stuff from different brands and one is this Lancome Color Design Shadow Quad Mini.  Uhmm yeah so now I'm going to start the review.

Curb The Cravings: What Your Body Really Needs When You're Craving

Hey guys!! A couple of months back as I was browsing through some magazines and some newspapers, I came across a neat article that made me a little skeptical at first but it was recently confirmed by my professor during a random day in class. Now that I'm thinking about it,  it actually makes sense. So today I'm going to share with you the healthier alternatives to cravings. It's not actually alternatives, but rather the things that our body really needs during those cravings. Our brain actually sends signals that we are lacking certain nutrients in the form of cravings. Knowing what your cravings mean is half the battle of eating unhealthily and you can curb your cravings at the same time, minus the guilt. Just to put it out there, I'm obviously not a professional, I'm just a girl who wants a change in her body by eating healthier and not depriving herself. I know many of you guys are like me so let's just share what we know right? Now that it's out there, lem'me get started.

Mani Monday: How To Apply Nail Patches

Hey guys!!  Because I didn't have polish since last week, I thought of putting some on but I'll be running late to school if I do so, so.... I decided to use Nail Patches and it took me literally 5 minutes to get it all done, given that it's my first time using it. If you don't know what nail patches are, they are basically like the Sally Hansen's Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips or it's pretty similar to Water Nail Decals, which is perfect for those who want pretty nails but doesn't have the time and patience to do nail art. Compared to regular polish, it is easier to apply, they can be removed by nail polish remover also, it takes no time to dry, it's not thick even if it's opaque and good news to those who have very sensitive noses, it has 0% smell. Good thing that Dress Up Ur Nails introduced me to these gorgeous products.
