Bula!

30 November 2014

We are half way our cruise and so far my favourite is the Isle of Pines in New Calendonia!

Just think white sand, crystal clear water and amazing hospitality! 

I came from beautiful Philippines and New Caledonia is almost home. 

Here are some (New Caledonia) photos from my phone :) 


Look how clear is that water!! 



Hope you are all having a great weekend! 

Speak soon!!

Ps. Bula is hello in Fijian. We are currently in Suva as I type this so again Bula to you all!

WHAT'S IN MY BAG: TRAVEL EDIT Part 2

28 November 2014


Remember my other post - Link! - well I've changed my mind again! By the time you are reading this I am already in the cruise and here's my new what's in my bag - Travel Edit.

ps. I wrote this post after I've packed everything in and I was too tired to get it to check the names. So if you see shade names like "brownish" then you know why.

THE BEGINNING OF ze TODDLER

26 November 2014


This post is inspired by Simone of Simonelovesmakeup. She wrote a beautiful labour and delivery post - (Link!) - about her Charlie and it took me back memory lane when I had ze Toddler. So I decided to finally write his story. You need a drink too if you like to continue reading.



BABY LET'S CRUISE

25 November 2014





Ahoy matey!

Another quick touch base post :-) I am on board the cruise and it is so exciting!!

The photos may look smaller because I am using the app on my phone. 


I thought of going nautical outfit wise. Turns out I am not alone in this thinking process. 

Anyway this is home for a few days. Hopefully I get to update you of my shenanigans. Enjoy the rest of your week :-) 



I'll talk to you soon xx

ESSENCE LONGLASTING LIPSTICK

24 November 2014



My latest acquisitions from the Priceline 40% sale last week are proving to be a Hit this time. It's from the brand Essence and it's their Longlasting Lipstick range.

SYDNEY BABY!

23 November 2014


I am in Sydney! It's officially my honeymoon and so far I've stuffed my self with copious amount of Starbucks (my favourite is Gingerbread latte) and macarons and all the good things the Perth doesn't offer (yet).

So far I loved every single bit about Sydney including the fireworks last night. Here's some snapshots of me and food.



Btw, it's MAC Fanfare on my lips today and MAC Ripe for love on the cheeks :)

Hope you're having a lovely weekend. I best get to my Honeymoon and do what honeymooners do ;-)

I'll speak to you soon xx

NEW HAIR ALERT!!!

21 November 2014


I did it. I had a haircut and I had a major colour change.

PRICELINE HAUL (from the 40% Off Cosmetic Sale)

19 November 2014



So it happened. Priceline and their 40% crazy sale. As always they took my money away. 

SKINCARE HAUL (Summer)

17 November 2014


I blame the skincare switch to Fluer of Fluer De Force. I watched one of her get ready videos and her skincare for the day was Olay. Now, I don't know if that was sponsored or she loves Olay but it was enough for me to go ahead and switch.

KESTER BLACK NAIL POLISH in NUUUDE

14 November 2014


I caved in and applied the Kester Black nail polish I got from my Bella Box - Link! In the process of doing so I also made a booboo and cut myself!


WHAT'S IN MY MAKEUP BAG: TRAVEL EDIT

13 November 2014


Let's pause for a bit as we look at this photo. This was taken 3 years ago and before I had ze baby. 
This is one of my favourite trips I had as it was just a weekend of beach, sand and sun. 

So on to the post, my holiday is coming up soon (real soon).  We're going on a cruise!! (weeeeeee) I've been trying to get started with packing and just be organised. I thought why not start with the hardest one - Makeup!

REVLON NAIL ENAMEL in ELEGANT

10 November 2014



The search for the best nude nail polish continues although I may have found a worthy runner-up.


KATY PERRY PRISMATIC TOUR - Perth, Western Australia

08 November 2014

Can someone get that please?!

I swear my ears are still ringing from last night's shenanigans but oh it was all worth it.

The lovely husband kindly and lovingly took me to the Katy Perry Prismatic concert last night. (I actually forced him) It was Ms Perry's first show in Australia and she gave us, her Katy Cats, ONE.AWESOME.NIGHT.

Let's talk about the crowd. Her Katy Cats (fans) took it to another level. I mean there were Cleopatras, Jungle ladies, cupcake-tutu-wearers ladies everywhere. The ladies (on a date) brought their A-game and wore the tightest dress possible with their cat ears head bands on while their dates held their cool together and gave the other men some manly-stares of I know what you're going through bro. Anything for brownie points for sure. There were mum-daughters date and daddy-daughters date. There were guys in blue wigs, hoola skirts and ninja turtles costumes. And there were ladies in 2-piece of cloth/tea towel held by a string. Like I said another level.

Here's how my day/night went:

Getting Ready:

I thought why not curl my hair for the night. I haven't done it in a while. Why not curl it with a straightener / flat iron because I haven't done that EVER. What could possibly go wrong? Lessons learned came fast. First, my hair looked like a birds' nest. It was an epic fail and there were no do-over moments. Second, you'd think watching a YouTube tutorial as you do your hair will make it heaps easy? Think again. In the end, I went with the cray-big hair look and hoped that no birds will attack me.

























BELLA BOX - OCTOBER 2014 (First Impressions)

07 November 2014

I'm a little bit behind when it comes to Beauty Boxes. I don't have any philosophical reasons why I only joined last month. I just kinda didn't feel the want to when it first came out.


SAVVY (by DB) CLASSIC BLUSHES REVIEW

05 November 2014



Let's get it out there, these blushes are AH-MAH-ZING!

I am obsessed with these it's not even funny. I love everything about them. It's very affordable (AU$4.99). It's very pigmented and the finish is just beautiful on the cheeks. It stays on for hours without having to touch up and the quality is surprisingly better than some high-end blushes that I own.

MARIAH CAREY - The Elusive Chanteuse - Australian Tour - Perth, WA

03 November 2014

The day finally came and we get to see Ms Diva herself - Mariah Carey last night at the beautiful Sandalford Winery Estate. 

So let's recap the day/night shall we?

The day started with so much excitement over the fact that we are going to see her live.

I planned my outfit and the aim was comfort. I wore my good ol' skinny jeans from Country Road (5 years old), my favourite stripey top - (Link!), very light cargo/utility jacket from Katies and my white, Converse knock-off sneakers from Target - (Link!). Funny enough my date for the night had pretty much the same outfit ensemble sans the stripes. Twinsies!
