Happy Halloween!!!

Can you guess what I am for Halloween?




The skeleton bride! ;)  Creepy...



So glad that finally I was able to use my Black Knight lipstick from MAC.  Formulation is very creamy since it is a cremesheen, however staying power is not too good.

Have fun and be safe guys! =)


Update!

Weekends!!!  My favorite time of the week! =)  Been so busy the last couple of weeks.  Traveling, phone calls.. not needed stress.... so tiring!  Good thing this Saturday and Sunday we are off... a much needed fresh air! =)  Couldn't be happier! =)  Updates.. nothing much..  just sooo happy that the business is starting  to take off.. found the right supplier and met the right people so I'm very excited about that.  Hope everything will push through.  So thankful that my brother is here to help out.. if not... I don't know.. I would still have been stuck on step one.  Despite all the tiring days and hectic schedule I can't complain.  Pretty soon I've have the best job I've always dreamed of. =)  

Something happened right now that I have to deal with.  It is sad.. but something's are not meant to be I guess...  I'm just sad because I always thought about it as my future... but anyways...  move on and be strong...  

I am going to a Halloween Party tonight... can't believe it has already been a year since the last time I posted a Halloween pic!  I haven't seen my friends for such a long time!  Missed them a lot!  I bought my costume last minute because I wasn't thinking of going.  But because of an unforseen incident that   happened I have to keep it out my mind and forget about it forever.  Why do I keep coming back on this unfortunate incident??  Hay.. sorry guys.. change topic.  Anyways, I'll post pic of the final look =)  

Last Wednesday we went to Carson, Nevada for a business trip.  It is an hour plane ride from LA.  It is a small city but very peaceful.  My brother loves it there!  He actually wants to migrate there.  =)  We met up with his broker and they were very nice.  Very friendly and they were from California actually and moved there.   The weather is cool at this time of the month.  Their place is like 20 mins away from Lake Tahoe.  

View from the plane.. mountain capped with snow...

Tired brother! =P

That's it!  Happy Halloween guys!

Thoughts...

"I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure.  I make mistake, out of control and at times hard to handle.  But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best."

Update!

Hi everyone!  Sorry for the lack of post..Just a quick update... been very busy the last couple of weeks.  Big brother is here for a month and we've been very busy setting up the business so I guess I'll be back when he goes home.  Been doing a lot of phone calls and traveling.. soooo tiring! Not to mention tired from rejection and uptight attitude from others as well.   If I get to have a free time I'll try to sneak in a post or two.. but at the moment I guess I'll be missing for awhile... =)  Tangs!  Promise I'll update as soon as everything is settled! =)

By the way Sephora's Friends and Family Sale is on right now... just use coupon code ff2010 at checkout.

What else... by the way I found out what's causing my breakout!  After doing a lot of elimination(make up, cleansers, moisturizers, even body lotion!)  and sanitation (bed covers, brushes etc!)  the cause of my break out.... the Tsubaki Shampoo and Conditioner!  The white bottles!  I don't know I heard so many good reviews about it and tried it.. first month of using it I don't recall having any problems with it but after couple of months.. my forehead just keeps on breaking out like crazy and seems like it never stops... anyways.. I stopped using everything I've been using.. like skin care and stuff but the zits just keep on coming back just when I realized that the only thing that I haven't changed is my shampoo and conditioner.. I stop using it... and the next day my forehead started to clear and zits drying up.  I don't know if I'm allergic to it or it makes my skin produce more sebum.. can't really tell... but I'm just so glad that I discovered what's causing it before it's too late that I can't manage the pimples.. that's all I have to share with my breakout.. =) so if you guys have like pimples and been trying to find the cause.. consider shampoos as well.

Here's my pic with my breakout.. good thing BB creams exist however it still doesn't hide the flaws...they are more on the left side of my forehead and the big nasty ones really hurt!  =(


Anyways that's it guys... see you next time! =)

Ikea Project!

Hi everyone!  Happy Sunday! =)  I've been pretty busy the last couple of days with business and stuff and also with a little project that I've been wanting to do for the longest time.  So that's what I'm going to talk about =) Long time ago.. almost a year ago I guess or more...I bought an organizer/drawer at Ikea.  I saw a blog post from Anne (yummmiebitez) and thought it was really a neat idea to organize stuff.  A year after it was still sitting inside my cabinet so I vowed to finish it!  Conclusion:  I'm a sucky carpenter! Period!  Really! My first time to hammer a nail and can't get it straight!  The head of the nail is sticking out twisted on the side.  Kindda frustrating at first but with 12 drawers to finish.. practice indeed makes perfect! ;P  Anyways.. here is my little project..

"Fira"

Putting the pieces together was the challenge for me... so hard to hammer nails! 

But with perseverance able to put them together =) and put a touch of color

Coming along pretty well...


Taaadaaaa! =) Painting it wasn't so bad!  Chose this color to match
my living room color scheme =)

I'm sooo happy that I finished this ikea project!  Very proud of myself that I was able to handle a nail and   a hammer! =)  Painting this was very relaxing actually and kinda therapeutic as well.  Just dont ask about the nailing! =)  Have a good one guys! ;)

Outfit of the day!








I just love the naked palette!  I just can't get enough of it.  So easy to use and the color selection is beautiful!

Mac Venomous Villain Mini Haul =P

Hi guys!  Sorry for the lack of update.  Not feeling well today.. dunno if I'm coming down with a flu or something.. plus on hold for naked tutorial at the moment... I've been having a bad breakout on my forehead.. dunno if it's stress related or what but I haven't used anything different  on my skincare regimen to have this breakout.  I'll just wait for these guys to clear up before I make a video of the naked palette ;)  Anyways as the title says.. a mini haul from the Venomous Villain Collection recently released by mac.

I didn't really get a lot of products from the collection.  I just got two lippies, a beauty powder and a blush which I think are really pretty.  The reviews are kind of mix from this collection.. there are some who doesn't like it or don't find the collection unique.. and some who like it for the packaging and some who really really like the color collection.  Only a few days on the mac website and it is sold out already.  I'm glad I was able to get these products. 

On to the mini haul...


Bite of an Apple (matte)



a very bright matte coral blush.  very pigmented... use a light hand when
applying this blush.


Briar Rose Beauty Powder



a muted cool pink with pearlescent finish...not as pigmented as I would like 
it to be but still pretty shade..great for highlighting as well

On to the lippies!




Toxic Tale
Bright coral with a satin finish...it's pretty that it brightens
your face.

Heartless

Very red.. love this color!  It is very creamy and the shade is perfect
red for me.

Violetta

I have this lippy already.  It's a pro color and very pretty as well.  It
looks ultra violet in the tube but when applied has a berry pink tone to it.

Swatches!!!



So far I'm loving all the products I got... =)  sorry guys can't post face of the day using
these products because of my nasty pimples... just a random pic I took awhile back
while having fun with photobooth! =)

Benetint! A rosy flush!

Hi guys! Hope everyone is doing well.  Been cold out here in Cali lately plus rain... rain is good.. we actually need it.. but every time the weather is like this I love to stay indoors and keep warm ;)  Anyways new post specially requested by Tangs! =) Hehe! Still have the nasty zit in the middle of my nose but it's slowly going away so.. just ignore it hehe!


Benefit is a lip and cheek stain that by far gives me the most natural looking glow!  I love this product because it is sheer and gives me a youthful blush.  It is very buildable according to your preference.   The texture is watery so you have to have a quick hand in applying it or else it dries out fast and will leave a streaky finish if not blended well.  It has a rosy scent which is a plus and it's a two in one product which I love.  Can just slip this in my make up bag and can give me the quick fix that I need.  The only thing is that the lasting power when applied to the lips is not really that great.  I guess it is expected since it is a stain.  But you can  reapply it if you need to.  Overall I like this product.  This bottle will actually last a long time!

Naked! Naked!

The Naked Palette from Urban Decay is one of the most sought after palettes in history as long as I can remember.  Until now it is still sold out on their website as well as Sephora and Ulta.  I got mine from Macy's but waited almost a month before it was delivered...but it is worth all the wait!  I love this palette! =)  If you love to wear neutrals or even colorful shadows.. this palette is a good addition to your collection and is worth all the hype.  Been trying a lot of different looks with this palette and it is just amazing.  It is consists of 12 shadows with a mixture of matte and shimmery with shades ranging from champagne to gunmetal dark.  It also comes with a mini genie primer potion as well as dual ended 24/7 liner in zero (back) and whisky (brown).  














 I love this palette and can't rave enough about it! ;)  Right now this is my go to palette.  It is an amazing value for 12 shades and the shadows blend so well. You can create different looks with it.  From office friendly shadows to fun and fierce smoky night out.  The shades have different hues from coppery shades, pink hues as well as dark gray.   The packaging is neat as well but my only complaint is the suede material that encases the shadow.  It gets dirty fast.. and shadow stick to it...I guess it is just me.  But overall this is a great product.

Playing with my Nakedness!




I'm not really into heavy make-up but for some reason I love how this "vamp" look turned out.








Today's a start of another week!  Have fun guys and talk to you later!
