Flower Power

23 notes Reblog Comments

It’s been raining really hard for the past few days. Thankfully, mister sun decided to show up today; so I decided to wear something colorful ! Yay for good vibes :D

White Short Sleeve Florals Print Dress from Sheinside.com

White Wedges from Golddot

Yellow Skirt from Bershka

Pink Clutch from Coach

Forgive my ‘sleepy face’. Woke up early so I can take advantage of the early morning lighting <3 I hate taking photos during lunchtime /squinty eyes.

I really, really need a haircut. Can anyone suggest a good salon in The Fort area? :o I haven’t been to a salon in more than 6-8 months! LOL — and I call myself a girl. Yup.

Definitely going to my ‘favorite colorful dresses collection’!

Everyone please say hi to Riz ! <3 She’s behind all these awesome photos! Thank you!

Shu Uemura • Art of Beauty • Drawing Pencils Review

33 notes Reblog Comments

Posting an outfit shot on a blog review article just to mess with you guys. LOL! ;)image

***

A few weeks ago, Shu Uemura sent me their new product for me to try out (thank you!). I was so ecstatic when I opened the package because…

*cue in drumroll*

image

DRAWING PENCILS! If you’re an artist as well, I’m sure you’d be as excited as I was.

It comes in 21 shades and 4 textures. Imagine all the possibilities!

image

It came in a very sleek and colorful tin pencil case. 

image

Which color/s did I receive? /heavy breathing and sweaty palms.

***

Tada!

image

image

***

image

image

Texture is matte and a bit chalky but glides on quite easily. 

image

The pink pencil’s texture is creamy and contains glitters — glides on smoothly and easily.

***

SWATCH:

image

I was shocked when I swatched the green pencil as it came out in a very solid black with a hint of green. Was never really a fan of the color green so — yay!

***

SMUDGE TEST:

I am happy to report that this pencil liner has a very high ‘smudge tolerance level’ — is there such a term? 

I initially smudged it using my fingers and it did not budge on bit! A+ on that!

I decided to take it to the next level and used a rough tissue paper (lol). Since the black liner is a bit chalky, it did smudge a bit though not entirely. As you can see, the pink liner did not smudge AT ALL. /You can all applaud now. 

image

***

WATER TEST:

I tried to smudge it out while my forearm was wet and I’m happy to say that it is definitely water-resistant if not waterproof.

image

***

So, how did I remove it? With only THE BEST CLEANSING OIL ! If there’s one Shu Uemura product I will buy until the day I die, it’s this one! I regret not using this sooner. Unlike other make-up removers, this is very efficient in removing make-up, oil, and grit — plus, it saves you a lot of time; not to mention too much face / skin tugging using cotton pads.

image

***

With just one teeny tiny drop of the Shu Uemura Cleansing oil.

image

Everything just melted off, lol. 

***

How I used it :

image

So cute right? 

image

I cheated a bit with the wing cause I haven’t purchased a pencil sharpener. Pencil eyeliner was not sharp enough so I used a liquid eyeliner for the wing tip :)

***

Hope this helps <3

Colorful ‘Pop’ Stripes • Nail Art Tutorial

80 notes Reblog Comments

Admit it, you miss my nail art tutorials. HA HA HA. Kidding :) 

Anyway, this is super easy! 

You will need the following :

• Nail Polish (3-5 colors)

• Scotch tape although I prefer to use Washi tapes since they don’t adhere as much.

• Scissors / Cutter

image

***

Step 1:

Make sure to do this BEFORE painting you nails.

Cut thin strips of your tape ~ (quantity depends on how many stripes you want)

image

I used a striped washi tape to make my life easier *wink*

Tip: You can make some strips thinner / thicker ! (Mix thin and thick strips for a more fun look)

***

Step 2:

Pick 3-4 colors ~ Paint vertically or horizontally. You don’t have to be super neat. It’s also best if you coat it twice to make sure the colors are bold and vibrant :)

image

Should look like this :

image

PS: Before moving on to the next step, please make sure it’s completely dry. (Dry for 15~20 minutes to be safe)

***

Step 3:

Fill in the remaining nails with your preferred ‘top coat/color’. 

image

image

Tip: Use solid black or white for a more vibrant contrast,

***

Step 4:

image

When you’re 101% sure that your polish is dry, take your washi strips and apply as such:

image

image

Make sure you stick it on well but don’t press on it too much as the polish might come off when you peel it off later.

image

***

Step 5:

Fill it in using your preferred ‘top coat / color’. Make sure the colors beneath it doesn’t show — at least 2 coats/swipes of your top coat.

image

image

Wait for about 5~10 seconds before peeling the tape off. 

***

Last step:

Add a clear coat to seal in the design.

image

You’re done! :) Super easy right? 

I would love to see yours (if ever you decide to try this out) ~ tag me on Instagram if you do :) — @crissey8

Last Saturday, my friends and I were invited to a kiddie birthday party in Mcdonalds Greenbelt — which obviously deserves a separate entry cause it was SO.MUCH.FUN.

I haven’t had that much fun in months! Most of the time, I’d be at home constantly preoccupied with thoughts about ‘what ifs’ and life in general (I’m not kidding). I guess I’m experiencing a bit of a ‘quarter life crisis’ (?) People who cannot let go of their past and/or who are constantly worried about the future are surely missing out a lot on their present; which will eventually become a part of their past (duh) — it’s a viscous cycle, really. I guess what I’m trying to say is that we shouldn’t be too hard on ourselves and enjoy life a bit. I’m so thankful for my friends who drag me back to the present whenever I wander aimlessly in my own thoughts. 

Anyway, enough of the contemplating. Here’s what I wore <3

image

image

Knitted ‘ENJOY' top from Stradivarius — See what I did there? hehe. Currently one of my favorite brands since it's a bit cheaper as compared to Zara, Bershka, Topshop, etc.

image

Cheated with nude/skin tone shoes — color continuity gives the illusion of elongated / longer legs. hehehe. #sorryimnotsorry

image

Tiny studded ballet flats pendant from my mom. And no, I don’t curl my hair everyday. I have natural waves — I wake up looking like Chewbacca because my hair refuses to obey the law of gravity :( 

image

Origami shorts from Stradivarius. My favorite style~ I actually have 5 pairs of Origami shorts! eep.

image

Comfiest platforms ever! Wish I purchased it in black as well </3

Special thanks to Arvee for taking my photos.

Begin Again

36 notes Reblog Comments

Hello, hello! Long time no post. I’ve recently been contemplating whether or not I should continue blogging — hence, the long hiatus. Boo for you, I’ve decided to continue HA HA HA. You’ll be seeing more of my pint / fun sized self more often now. 

image

So happy the weather is starting to cool down a bit. The summer heat is really killing me. I’m not fond of the rain but it’s better than a sauna!

image

McCafe Vanilla Iced Coffee <3 

image

Hair color is Platinum Beige (LIESE brand) if anyone’s interested. It’s actually more of a light ash in real life. 

image

image

image

Erland Oxfords from Le Bunny Bleu SS2014 Collection. Such a perfect pastel pink! Definitely my current favorite pair from Le Bunny Bleu.

Btw, They’re having a sale now so you might want to check it out! Also, if you buy 3 sale items, you can get a free bunny plushie!

image

So there, I’m still alive. A big thank you to everyone who still reads and supports my blog! :) 

A huge thanks to my friends Riz Olea (my photographer/  hair stylist / partner in crime) and JB for pressuring me to post an update. HA HA.

LIVE WITHOUT REGRETS • METROBANK PREPAID CARD

28 notes Reblog Comments

Hi everyone, did you miss me? Sorry for being on hiatus for the longest time. Hope everyone’s doing great! 

Anyway, I was one of the lucky ones to have been invited to the Metrocard Prepaid Card launch last month.

image

Totally digging their Press Kit with my name on it. I also love their tagline — Live Without Regrets — it should be my life mantra. 

image

Since it’s a pre-paid card, you’re in control of how much you spend. I think this is perfect for people who like to keep track and stay on top of their finances. It’s also a great way to build good money habits as opposed to just swiping away and forgetting about your credit card cut off dates and credit limits, yikes!

image

Since it can conveniently be used both as a pre-paid (sort of like a debit card/ATM card) and a credit card (mastercard) at the same time, you don’t have to worry about bringing a lot of cash with you all the time. I’m really happy about being able to use it in restaurants since most of them don’t accept debit cards. Oh, and did i mention you can even use it abroad! Just make sure to load it up via Metrobank’s ATM, Online, or Phone Banking. You can even withdraw your cash anytime :)

image

With Tricia~ I swear we didn’t plan our matchy-matchy white outfits. The #Trissey connection cannot be explained.

image

image

So glad to have finally met Ira Giorgetti, Tracy Ayson, and David Guison.

image

The food served was glorious! Make sure to try out VYNE when you’re in the Fort area.

image

image

image

image

David and I wanted to take a shot with the ceiling…but failed. Hello silhouettes! 

image

With Isabel Trinidad.

image

Hello, new blogger friends!

image

Obligatory #trissey mirror shot before leaving the event.

I am one of the many people who appreciate the convenience of online shopping so I naturally had to try online shopping for my first purchase using my Metrobank Prepaid Card.

image

Dress from Yesstyle.com ~ One of my favorite online stores since they have super fast shipping (door-to-door delivery).

image

Very smooth transaction. Hopefully, they’ll be able to partner up with Paypal in the near future. Suddenly, the possibilities of online shopping became endless *_* This is perfect for students who want to shop online but don’t really have access to credit cards (it’s for your own good!). At least by using this prepaid card, you can use your own savings to purchase stuff you want :) No need to rely on your parents! All you have to do is save up and load up! Since the card isn’t connected to any bank account, you don’t have to worry about wiping out your savings (just wiping out your allocated budget for the card, lol). 101% safe to use online!

Next purchase was in Le Bunny Bleu. Everything was on 50% off at that time — lucky me!

image

With Keita, my forever shopping buddy! hehehe.

image

Got two pairs both at 50% off! What an offer! 

image

Very smooth and quick transaction. Exactly like a credit card but you have to input your PIN like when you purchase using a debit card. 

Best part is that you can avail of the card sans the initial deposit most, if not all banks require. No need for a maintaining balance as well! :) It’s super easy! All you have to do is fill up the Metrobank Prepaid Card registration form, present 1 or 2 valid ID’s (Government ID if you’re no longer a student) and lastly, pay P100 for the card which is valid for 3 years. Easy peasy!

Let the shopping, commence!

Windy Day

29 notes Reblog Comments

Sweater weather has officially ended but someone’s obviously in denial. Good news is, I can take more ‘wind effect’ outdoor shots ala shampoo commercial, hurhur.

Tied my hair up in a bun today and it ended up looking all nice and wavy /Perks of the natural kulot. 

Super cooperative wind begets a super happy smile.
OT: My front teeth are super big that I’m starting to think I’m secretly the Easter bunny :B

Current favorite black skirt from Persunmall.com ! I’m so excited to share photos of the other items I ordered, yay!

Zipper detail. You can purchase this Irregular Cutting Skirt with Zipper from Persunmall.com ~! Loving their collections so far :)

Scalloped ballet flats (Moxie) from The Carrier Pigeon ProjectThe wind betrayed me!

Anyway, my friends and I tried Tamarind (SM Aura) today.

Pad Thai was REALLY good.

and so was the beef curry.

Price range is from P 150-P300 per plate. Not too expensive if you’re planning to eat out with 3 or more people. 

With Arvee, one of my first ever friend in Coca-Cola and Kirsten, my HS — College — work buddy <3 

Teng (but he prefers Francis), college / Nintendo 3DS buddy!

THIS IS HOW YOU SHAKE A GONGCHA DRINK. OKAY.

With Arvee again! Love her so muuuuch! 

Ending this entry with a very pretty Red Velvet cupcake from @sweet_treats_ph <3 Happy Valentines to all my lovely readers!
