Recent Favorites | My Beauty Essentials

It's not that I'm beautiful...but as a woman and a mom, I want to look good too! I used to mix and match everything. That's why I don't normally post favorite make-ups each month. But, surprisingly, lately I've been using the same makeup for the whole straight month. So here it goes:

Ice Skating Night

I posted this outfit late because just like any other family who celebrated Thanksgiving, I too have been busy with the family, in-laws, niece and nephew who stayed over for a week. It was a lot of fun having them here in our house for the first time despite the unfinished kitchen. We've been out and about most of the time and I never really got to do ootd shots of myself since I don't want them to think I'm too vain to take selfie's of myself. lol! However, I did get a few decent ones while we're at the ice skating place the night of Thanksgiving.

Fall Nails | Wet n Wild Under Your Spell

Sorry, that picture wasn't meant to scare you. Although, yesss, I'm being a dork! Anyway, lately I've been loving this fall inspired nail color by Wet 'n Wild Megalast. At first glance you would think it's maroon but once you apply it on the nails, it becomes kinda brownish. I had to apply another coat to get those red shimmers pop out.

Fall Maxi

Happy Autumn everyone! I know I have been MIA for a month and half, I believe, but it's nice to be back. I miss blogging but I seriously felt so lazy writing and besides, I wanted to concentrate more on our house projects. Anyway, since I haven't got the chance to snap some pictures of my recent outfits, here's an idea of what I've been enjoying to wear lately. Maxi dress over thermal leggings can be comfy and definitely be dainty in this chilly weather.

Casual OOTD: Rustic Yellow

I'm so thankful that rusty yellow was made, discovered, invented, and fashioned! I never liked yellow especially on clothes. For some reason I feel like I'm a walking bumble bee if I'm wearing yellow but I do find it cute on other people. It's just not my favorite color, I guess. Surprisingly, this rusty-yellow shirt from Target complements my skin and I really like that because some other vibrant colors makes me look dark and gloomy. Anyway, I'm so bad at taking OOTD shots lately due too busy schedule but I managed to take a selfie shot before heading out to the store.

OOTD: Semi-Casual Boyfriend Jeans

Hello! I can't believe it's Wednesday again...where did the time go? It felt like I haven't accomplished anything this week.  Are you guys excited for the coming Labor Day Sales? I am! I'd probably try to avoid going to the clothing stores because my hubby and I have already planned on scouting more kitchen renovation stuff. Therefore, we will be mostly visiting home improvement stores. Enough with the blabbing, here's my ootd post for this week... Btw, I was undecided on which handbag to use hence the different handbags in this photo. Aannndd...sorry about the bad photo quality! I won't be too lazy to use a better camera next time. :)

White & Blue OOTD

My major fashion staple is none other than white t-shirt. You can never go wrong with a basic white shirt. Whether I dress it up or down, it can definitely be paired in so many ways without looking over dressed. Sporting also my new skyscraper sandals (I believe it's about 4 inches tall) which I bought from Hautelook. It may be too high for me but it's actually not that bad when walking. Are you a basic tee lover too or do you prefer prints?

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder Review

This product has been the most remarkable product of its kind that I have ever used because of its spot on exact claims. Rimmel’s “Stay Matte” says it all. It does gives you a smooth and shine-free look. I basically bought this for my trip to the Philippines, thinking that the weather could get hotter or even more humid and to stay looking fresh is all I ever wanted. I'm definitely loving this powder even though it only gives me light coverage. The important thing for me is how it helps regulate the oils on my face yet lightweight on the skin. It also helps minimize the appearance of pores while achieving a long lasting shine control. Containing natural mineral is also a plus!

OOTD: Denims

If I were to choose between dresses and jeans
I'd choose jeans in a heartbeat. 
As I challenge myself into trying new outfits
and break out of my shell, 
I'm happy to say that denim tops aren't as bad
as I think they were. (I used to dislike this
kind of style, fyi). 
This outfit is just one of the many ways I love
wearing it...with white denim short and 
comfy shoes!

Revlon Colorstay in #310 Warm Golden Review + Swatch

For liquid foundations, I personally prefer matte finish. One drugstore foundation that I would definitely recommend is the Revlon Colorstay. But first off, my skin is in Mac NC35-37 shade or NC40 when in my super tan phase. I have a combination skin as well. I purchased mine from Walmart  for $9.98 which is a few dollars less than what you would pay at the drugstores. My first world problem for this one though is that it still has a small hint of pink tone to it. But, there are things that I thought I should consider liking it.

OOTD: Go Nude

I love simple yet sophisticated styles. I find it very pleasing in the eyes. 
Not much going on and it's not complicated. 
But of course, it's just one of those many styles that I adore. 

This dress was thrifted and I really love it 
because I got it just in time for summer. 
I just Paired it with golden pointy shoes and I'm good to go.

Weekend Fair

Do you love carnivals/fair? To me, it brings back fun childhood memories and it has been one of my favorite places to go when I was a kid. Although all the rides and other activities from where I grew up were not as cool as what they have here in the states, it's still where families come together.

Anyway, I wasn't sure how the weather is going to be that day since it was kind of cooler that morning but then I also knew it was going to be a long day and might get hot at the end of the day. So for my outfit at the Old Shawnee Day Fair, I decided to put on some jeans in case it gets colder and just a tank top to play it safe. I'm sure everyone experienced weird weathers lately.

ELF Professional set brushes & Studio brushes

Elf products are known for their affordable makeup and tools. They have the regular $1 brushes which I think is very cheaply made except for the eyeshadow brushes that works okay, and the studio line brushes for $3-6 a piece which is definitely a must-try. Their studio line is made of synthetic hair and cruelty free.

Blogger Image Header & Background Not Matching

Here's a quick fix for that!

***Go to Dashboard >> Account Settings >> Google+ ...then scroll down to "Photos" and UNCHECK the Auto Enhance option. ***

As you can tell, my blog is still under construction. And one of the problems I've encountered while pimping up my page is when uploading my image header and not being able to blend in with my page background. I used Photoshop first to create my header and each time I upload it on my blog, a grayish color shows up that is very noticeable. I tried for the second time to edit my image header on picmonkey and still the outcome is the same. It is annoying to look at and I can't leave it just like that.  Though I haven't tried using other photo storage websites, I was determined to get to the bottom of this. Only to find out that the culprit is Auto Enhance.

Hope you find this helpful and goodluck! xox

Wet n' Wild Through the Grapevine #208A Nails

Today's nail of the day would be this Wet n Wild Megalast nail color in #208A - Through the grapevine. It was two years ago when I last wore this color and I even posted a review about it on my other blog. I guess I should do a recap about this product and perhaps an update as well. Wet n Wild nail products are my favorite because not only they're inexpensive, usually costs $2 below, they are also good in terms of quality.

Hello World Again!

Today I received an email from Mr. G saying they've detected unnatural links in my other blog. What a way to celebrate my birthday, right?! Yes, I read it on the day of my birthday! So, instead of going through all that trouble by making some changes in my blog for reconsideration, I've decided to start a brand new one.
