last Sunday, i picked up some new accessories so i can use them for the upcoming church anniversary of my beloved church, Hope Church Singapore, as i will be part of the ushering ministry that day. i went to Forever21 at Somerset@313 and here's what i got:

i got BELOfied!

i went back to Manila around late second week of July to get my 3rd ESWL. but before that, i went to Belo at The Residences @ Greenbelt with my youngest sister to get a facial and advice on how to improve our skin. i've never had facial EVER before so i didn't know what to expect.

when we arrived, the ladies at the reception greeted us promptly and asked our names to know our appointment. the ambiance of the clinic is very serene, inviting and pleasant. immediately after getting in, i inhaled this clean, jasmine(?) aroma - uhm, very soothing.

one of the ladies at the reception received us, then ushered us into available seats and shortly thereafter were offered drinks then asked to fill up a form (since it's our first time there). after a little while, we were assisted to our respective treatment rooms for the facial.

my facialist that day was Matet. she was pretty (her skin was radiant!), professional and very accomodating with my queries. she also made me feel at ease an…

Dry 'N Shape by Sigma

Sigma brushes have been on my list of lemmings for the longest time but because i've banned myself to not buy brushes for a while, it got forgotten - until a few days ago, when i revived once again my almost-dying blog. :P while in the course of creating posts, i visited Sigma's website and found out they have a new product - Dry 'N Shape. it's supposed to dry makeup brushes in 4-6 hours and retain the original shape of it's hair. how fabuluous does that sound?

celebrity look version: Amy Winehouse

by now, you may have already known that British singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse has passed away. she is very talented and died at a very young age, such a waste of talent and life. speculations are that she died from alcohol and drug abuse.

maybe if she knew God personally her life would have been different, like what happened to Brian Welch (Korn).

anyway, as i read some articles surrounding her death several images of her surfaced as well. this made me decide to do a look with her signature style - exaggerated winged liner. this look is pretty easy and quick to do - you'll only use a handful of items.

operation wardrobe update

wow, time sure does fly - it's already the end of a work week! (^__^) that means, a few more hours away from resting over the weekend. other than resting, dressing up or down is a good idea too. (~__^)

speaking of dress, wanna share with you ladies some updates in my wardrobe arena. i purchased some of these items from Manila just over a week ago before i went for my surgery and some here in Singapore.

introducing...! :P

EXHIBIT A - DP beige kitty heels

unintentional ardour - Burt Bee's lip balm & UD Black Palette

couple of months ago, i decided to get a new lip balm as my MAC lip conditioner is tasting a li'l bit like metal. *shudders* so, i gave Sephora a visit and came out with more. :P

been hearing a lot of good reviews about Burt's Bees lip balm so i checked it out first. i was a bit turned off with the price - S$9.90. imagine only a lip balm for that amount *sheesh*. but alright, i thought, "i'll bite." and here i am very satisfied with it hehe. i tried the Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil.

Swedish mane lavish

early of this year, i tried a new shampoo and conditioner for my newly rebonded hair. i went to Beauty Language at Bukit Panjang Plaza (Singapore) and the sales attendant recommended me the Swedish brand called Reference.

nail addiction re-awakening

hi ladies! i'm happy to post a beauty entry again - i know it's been ages. am active in FB though. (^_^)

during my December vacation in Manila last year, i was able to hoard a bit on nail products. i ran out of basecoat (i previously finished a large bottle of Orly Top2Bottom) and need replenishment ASAP. i still got the same basecoat but in a smaller size and i picked out another one - Orly Tough Cookie.
