My Style Statement inspired by The Ramp Crossings

A stylish scarf is a chic way to offer warmth during rainy days, safeguard from bitter cold and windy night breeze or just to ward off the heat of the sun. One of our wardrobe staples are scarves and ever since I gave my sister this rectangular animal print scarf from The Ramp Crossings as a gift

she never live the house without it! The animal print design is forever and having it on as a scarf is very substantial, it can make the look vintage-y renaissance to comfortably-modern!

 Here I will show you the most basic benefits she gets with this fabulous scarf from The Ramp Crossings.
 This chic accessory add pizzazz and fashion impression that boost and increase her full, lusterless dress she is wearing on the left side while adding design and a dash of color on the right photo.

This simple scarf do wonders and magic to dresses, blouses and outfits turning them from so-so to glamorous-so! The outfit on the photo above changed in a quick instant! The plain terno of sleeveless top and black leggings became more fashionably bold and stylish because the scarf balance the outfit!

Maybelline - Color Sensational Lip Liner in Toast 25 Reviews + Giveaway!

Reviews from
I originally set out to the Maybelline section in search of a nude liner in the ColorSensational section called Nude (20). I had heard about it from a Youtuber. I picked it up, but then noticed the color next to it, Toast (25). Toast looked a bit more "nude" to me, but I stuck with the Nude one because it was the one mentioned in the video. However, it began to bug me as Nude didn't look that Nude on my looked peachy brown. So I did my research and went back and got Toast and the Clear lipliner (which is awesome by the way). Toast is sooo much better as a nudish lipliner than Nude on my NW20 skin, rosey brown lips. I can wear Toast alone and have it look right or as a base under any of my lippies (same is true for the Clear liner as well). So don't be fooled by the name. Toast might be your "nude" lipliner of choice.
Have been using maybelline lip pencils for years. I much prefer the pencil types to the push up types as they usually go on more easily and don't break. I loved the 20 shade in nude but I went to get another one as it was only 1" left and they didn't have it. So I picked up toast 25 and I have to say I think I prefer it. It's very natural looking. Lip pencils really help to make your lips look fuller and the colour remains most if the day. None others that I have tried have been as effective as maybellines. I'm a lifelong repurchaser of these!
Toast may be the most underrated "nude" shade in the drugstore shelves. Well, at least that is for fairer girls such as myself, with moderately pigmented lips and roughly NC/NW 20-25 skin.

NYX Catwalk Eyeshadow Palette Reviews + Giveaway!

Reviews from
another lovely palette of nyx. natural colors in warm tones, both for day and night. pearly and matte shades together. lasting power is great, which matters a lot to me because i have oily lids.
It works great with nyx eyeshadow base or Mary Kay eye primer. I specially love the pink, it's perfect to get that natural look. I wish I could find that color on the singles.
I would buy this again just for the pink and the other delicious highlight colors!

BDJ Fair 2012: Limitless! @SM Mall of Asia + Raffle Prizes & Giveaway Loot Bags!

A week before last week, I was literally going loco on my schedule! Friday was our Johnson's Baby Milk Mom's Nourishing Spa Day, saturday was our  MommyMundo's MOTF Event precisely portion 2 for babies 0 to 12months, and Sunday was the BDJFair 2012: Limitless! The launching of Belle de Jour Power Planner 2013! Exhausting week for baby and me but very fruitful!
Since BDJ fair is on a sunday, we first attend our kingdom hall meeting at 7:30am, got home at around 9am and prepare for the MOA trip! We didn't get the chance to eat our lunch so we stop over at Wendy's first
we only ate light meal but with rice,
just enough to keep us energize but not full enough to sweat or to feel sleepy. :P
After asking the guards and locating the Music Hall, we finally arrived to the area...
look at how jammed pack the place is! Excitement creeping out! :D
After taking our turns on this photo, we register to get BDJ Fair VIP pass, for Php100.00 each. All VIP Charity Passes will be our grant to special activity booths like wall climbing, bungee jumping and several photobooths! Plus, this VIP pass allows us to take home a lootbag packed with freebies, vouchers, discount coupons and treats from BDJ sponsors! The VIP passes are also our donation as 100% of the proceeds will be given to the Rocked Philippines and Sulong Kabataang Romblomanon. :) We are required to get the VIP Charity Pass since we are registered to the Beauty Bootcamp talk! :P Win-win right?
Here was the schedule for the main tent workshops and talks!

MUSIC: All about F4 + Meteor Garden

Nostalgic ... That’s what I always feel whenever I hear a song from this Taiwanese boy group, F4! Well, I remember my highschool days more specifically them naming me “Sanchai” as she was the leading lady of the series as you can tell by this photo...
when I was 17 years old

Food Trip: MANNHANN on Mom and Dad's 26th Anniversary

I love Chinese food as much as I love Italian! Maybe because i grew up with it, eating pancit during occasions, be it canton, bihon, malabon, lucban, habhab, etc,. plus my mom is fond of making homemade carrot siomai out of homemade carrot juice! :P (One of the perks of living in Baguio! Another perk of living in Baguio was the uber-cheap but so delicious steamed or fried asado or bola-bola siopao from the local Danes Bakeshop! If you are to go to there, you gotta check them out!) And, believe me there are days when I'm so hungry of dimsum and oodles! :3 Back here in Makati, whenever we feel this way, all we have to do is walk a block and order our always in Chowking! :)

Yet again, my sister recently introduced us to a more next-to-the-level chinese restaurant that's near enough (whenever our cravings gets the best of us) as it is located at Market! Market! This particular instance was when we privately celebrated mom and dad's anniversary before celebrating it with close friends and relatives. :)

What we had was a heavy dinner with

Five Random Things This Week

These past few weeks are freaking crazy and hyped! Oh goodness, I'm super duper excited and happy that we finally arrived at our house here in Makati! Yay! That means we successfully packed our things to huge boxes! :D And safely headed home. :)

number 1 --- speaking of huge boxes, we had more than 40 boxes, plus the cabinets, study tables, dinning tables, chairs and things alike! :D which means...

number 2 --- time to unload the boxes! D: If packing is hard, then unpacking is harder!!! Geez... I had to put things into their places and change my mind about it and put it somewhere else! And there's this time, when I put it, change my mind, remove it, and change my mind again to have it put again (for the nth time) to the first place I decided to put it. (redundant I know, but heck I'm a girl yow!)

with grannies! :P
number 3 --- my babe can now roll whenever wherever! Said that, I need to give another extra focus and attention to him just to make sure he is safe, within reach and is always comfortable. You know, when he rolled, and he got tired, he don't know yet how to roll back. Hence, he'll just lay down flat face and won't care that he can't breathe because he is too tired to care, he'll just wait for me to see him in his situation and let me decide whether to pick him up or just let him lie there. :3 And of course, he know I'll pick him up! Smart boy ey?

number 4 --- I am designing a new website! Yay! It's taking too long but I'm patient enough... Hopefully, one magical day would arrive where I can show my site publicly! Whew... Clue? It's all about fashion! :D

number 5 --- Hey hey hey! I'm hosting a giveaway! Wanna join in?
Click here!
That's it for now! Watch out for my next post, as I will probably share to you my latest discovery on how to whiten those pearls! :D

Ever Bilena Mousse Eyeshadow in Rose Quartz

I love Ever Bilena as a drugstore makeup brand! I already share my views on its liquid make up foundation in Oriental. Now, I'll be bragging about my new rediscovered love of cream eyeshadows! :D The EverBilena Mousse Eyeshadow
Cream Eyeshadow in Rose Quartz
For less than Php150, this product is cheap and chunky for 6.5g! :D Great deal for those who just started to collect and love make up! It's vividly light and shimmery.Unbelievably lightweight and easily blendable.  This can be applied lightly using the ring finger or flat concealer brush for a subtle wash of color or layer to achieve deeper intensity. And as a mom, this product is a blessing! I could just dab it with my finger and I'm good to go!

 Here are the one-swipe swatches:

It can be worn alone or as a base of a powder baked or loose eyeshadow for longer-lasting wear and added dimension.  Richly pigmented shade. I think this is best with olive skintone so the color will show more vibrantly. :P

It's soft pink in color and not-so-much sheer. As you can see, my yellowish skintone makes the eyeshadow color barely there as I only use one swipe and spread it all around the lid and crease. This cream eyeshadow is a perfect base for neutral make up and for light smokey eyes even. :P I also wear this bare for no-makeup-make up look. :P

I would be getting a greyish hue next time I drop by! And, I'll gonna grab the Amber shade as well, crossing my fingers that it's still available. :P  Anyhow, is it a yay or nay? Do you have one of EB's Mousse Eyeshadows? What shades?

Photo Blog #5 just because...

Just because I wanna, so I gonna! :)
Here's a shot of my mini-gift + letter to my mom's bible student; Helen.
I honestly think that I'm taking away my mom from her, because will be going back to Manila and hence she won't be visiting her anymore, so aside from giving her my personalized copy of The Bible, I gave her some things that I love. <3
Just because it's his first time!
Ooooh, babe's milestone! He can now turn on his side! Yay!
(now, I know how it feels when your babe is learning simple things! :D)
See how I got to be a dovetailing mama?
So, don't forget to drop by my blogspot site here
