My Grass Skirt on a Cloudy Day

And I'm wearing it on my nails! :D

I love this (not so) new polish from Bobbie. It's so summer-y! I miss summer. :(

I used Bobbie's Grass Skirt and Silver Glitter. :D

Silver Glitter and Grass Skirt, respectively.

Happy Monday to all! <3

Fatties? Oh Come on, Marie Claire!

Nothing much to do today so I decided to read some articles from my favorite online magazines. I then came across this interesting writeup and all I can say after is "WHAT THE FUCK?!" Sorry for the profanity but I really think I have the best excuse to say that.

Please read this and tell me what you think.

I am disappointed. I also felt bad about how some of the people who commented on that article said that they will cancel their subscription to that prestigious magazine just because of that one bundle of opinions from a person who did not seem to care about her subjects' feelings.

Oh well. Enough said.

I Left Too Early

I left for work early today because I wanted to start the week right. Then I noticed that the roads are so clear and suddenly I remembered: today is local elections day in the Philippines! (I didn't vote ~ sahhhryy!) So that's why there are lesser vehicles on the roads. Yebah!

BUT ~~~ since I was TOO early to set foot inside my office, I decided to head to the nearest mall again It was probably 3 minutes away on foot. That meant only one thing: wallet damage! And this was the pretty damage:

Another great thing is that I brought my camera and memory card reader with me today so now I am able to blog about this! ♥

Really cute details ♥
I got it from the department store in Robinson's Galleria. It was on sale, actually. The original price was already very low so I was rendered speechless when the saleslady told me that it still has 30% discount. Why, hello HAPPY MONDAY!!! ♥

Bugs on Nails

A dear friend recently gave me a bottle of red nail polish from Milani and then wondered what design I could make out of it. I LOVE RED nails, super. But since Halloween is fast approaching, I decided to to give my red nails a little twist.

Bugs on my tips! 
I know, I know. It's not an original design. I'm sure you've gazed on a lot of pictures from the Internet showcasing this cute design, but I cannot help it. Like I said, it's cute! And so simple to do, so there ya go. ♥

Hope everyone's having a great Monday.:) Enjoy the rest of the week! I know I will! :D

Just The Way You Are

Current LSS.

Can't help but smile and feel cheesy whenever I hear this song.

And oh... Did you know that Bruno Mars is Pinoy (Filipino)? ♥

Denim Love

I got denim shoes! ♥ 

It's been raining a LOT in here. It's sooo cold, too. Days like these can really make a toll on our disposition for the day. Trust me. My students could feel it if I'm gloomy no matter how I try to sound perky in our classes. So yesterday, before heading to work, I "stopped by" (that's my i-wanna-shop-NOW expression) the mall and got myself a pair of shoes. The one that I got was from WAGW. I was supposed to buy a high-heeled one but they don't have my size anymore. (TIP: the WAGW sweet saleslady told me that they always have new stocks every Friday ~ and I went there on a Thursday ~ boo!) Anyway, when I saw these denim flats, I knew I already wanted to buy it. BUT, holy macaroni! The pair on display was the only pair left! So I carefully inspected the pair (because I was determined to get it) and thought it was still a great condition. The saleslady told me that A GUY just bought the last pair in stock a few minutes before I entered the store... yes, A GUY. I dared not ask further questions anymore since I'm gonna be late for work.

So I left the mall with a huge grin, while flashes of outfits-best-with-denim-flats images went through my fizzled brain. And... I'm so happy.♥
Their canvass bag ~ yay for saving Mother Earth! 

The zipper detail. :) 
The best part!♥

Not a bad idea, though ~~~ :) 
Saw this while Googling something and well, yeah its not a bad idea! Hehe. I love KitKat and I love green tea flavored foodies so this one definitely interests me. This is only sold in Japan... I think. Please correct me if I'm wrong. And alert me if this is already available in Pinas!!! :D

Anyway, so I guess everyone really had amazing experiences during last weekend's super sale in Mega and in Galleria. I didn't. :( I had a lot more fun things to do during those days (yeah right... like what?! LOL). But I did catch up on the WAGW (What a Girl Wants) half-month-long sale. Yey! I got a pair of shoes. Denim flats. I was supposed to to buy 3 pairs but then I remembered that I still need to go to work after shopping and I don't wanna carry all 3 bulky shoe boxes to my office. And I only commute ~ boo!

Will show the pictures really soon (my card reader: missing).

Hope everyone's having a good day!

Always Been Brown

I've been having my hair dyed since high school. Hehe yes, high school. It wasn't allowed in my school but i was able to get away with it ~ don't know how.

As time went by, I started lemming for better hair color products because I always want to do my own hair coloring (I love anything DIY).

This is my hair color at the moment.

I have black hair. When I got my hands on Revlon Colorsilk in strawberry blonde, I knew my hair would NOT look like the one on the box picture. But I still used it anyway... I just left it on my hair for an hour ~ instead of 20 minutes (which was what the box said). Hahaha ~

See? Your hair will only turn out this way if you're a natural blonde.

I've always wanted to go past my brown hair stage and move on to being blonde ~ LOL. Not that blonde though... just the right intensity that would match my skin tone. BUT I'm afraid to bleach my hair... so I'll just settle for this. :)

Pardon the autistic look.
What hair color do you use? And what do you use to maintain it? :D

Nail Art Inspiration

A dear friend AKA college classmate posted a really "kawaii" nail art design on my Facebook account. I was super inspired by it. Had fun recreating it. Loved it! ♥♥♥

Isn't it the cutest?! 
Thanks dear Charie for the inspiration picture! :)
