An EOTD and becoming MUA again~


   I was inspired with Michelle Phan’s Bronzed beauty look and decided to replicate my own version. Of course it doesn’t compare as good as MP’s, but I’m pretty pleased with the outcome. Pinks and Golds definitely look pretty and classy.

    Products used:


     l-r: in2it oil control foundation powder, fashion21 palette and naked palette




          l-r: half baked, buck and the pink shade from the fashion21 palette~

  pink shadow goes all over the lid, gold goes to the middle and brown on the outer crease

                           Mine looked more pinkish than MP’s

    Also, my sister’s best friend asked me to do her make-up…





       I used the NAKED palette and used half-baked, smog, dark horse and toasted. I also lent her my earrings which I bought from Hyphen Luxe~


       And lastly a picture of Tabby… hehe~



     Till then!

Ramblings and an unexpected food trip~


    Love is truly a wonderful thing, but it wasn’t always easy. I’ve been through a lot of painful pasts and when my heart and mind got tired, I stopped and decided that I have to stop the foolishness. But, If there is one thing that I do not regret is that, I’ve learned a lot from my mistakes, it was painful and at first I thought I would never recover the pain, but eventually it did.

   No, this is not a love story I promise, haha! Just let me ramble on some more. I’ve been through so much pain, and know that in this day, there are only a few decent men out there (and I’m lucky to have met one of those and more luckier that he is my soul mate). I suppose, being the second to the eldest daughter, I could not help but be protective of my younger sister (20 years old). I don’t want her to go through the pain I went through, but then, the only way to learn is for her to experience it herself. My sister is now dating a man for the first time! A few years older than she is, but not that old.

   Yesterday, was an unexpected food trip, my sister’s best friend is spending the weekend with us and around late in the afternoon, I was a bit dressed up and A said if I were going out, I said no, I just got home. PERFECT! She says, “I’m going to meet up with J later and introduce P to him, please go with me?” My sister and I are really close, she always introduces me to her friends as the famous ate (sister). She always brags about my cooking, and recently when I do her make-up. So anyway, I met his suitor for the first time. We were supposed to eat at Mcdonald’s, since our mom was home and we didn’t want to stay that late, but we ended up eating at Buddy’s along Kalayaan Avenue.

    The Lucban longganisa was good, it wasn’t my first time to eat at Buddy’s actually, but I definitely like their food a lot even the pizza.

2011-07-23 20.38.13_edit0-1

                                      me, Jimmy and Patricia

     Right after dinner, J asked if we wanted to have coffee, we gladly accepted his offer, but of course we were shy since he paid for everything. But then again, as my sister says, he should be! haha~ Good thing, there was a near Starbuck’s branch along Reposo Makati, so we just walked going there.

               I had the usual, Soy strawberries and cream frap~ yum!

    * All photos were taken with my camera phone

     I had fun spending time with P, as for J, well, he’s okay I guess, he was nice and talkative. Last night turned out to be a swell experience, as for the food, of course it was delish! Sisig is always good! Actually, I remembered one of my dear readers (Gita). One of the tables ordered cassava cake, and she loves cassava, haha.


     By the way, while I was in Shopwise I say this…

Something came in the mail today: MEOW~


   Quick post….

    Something came in the mail today. It was unexpected actually, I am still recovering on a bad case of dry cough and was feverish the other day. When this certain meow despite her busy busy schedule, thoughtful as ever wanted to make me feel better.

   We’re friends on facebook, so when this meow saw my post and posted a comment I was curious (she told me to wait for manong xend delivery boy).


            The minute I touched the package I knew it wasn’t makeup



                                           A pretty silver box~


    And that meow is my good friend E (Lady E). It was perfect timing, I was a little irritated because my mom lost my other pair of pearl earrings, which came from Boracay and when I saw the E gifted me a set of earrings, NONE THE LESS a HELLO KITTY earring, it was far a better replacement for the lost pearl.



    I so can’t wait to wear this next week, M and a couple of our friends will be watching Captain America this weekend. And I can’t wait for M to see this earrings. hehe~ Thanks E, and of course, I miss you too, I’m going to treat you out next time we see each other again.


   Yes, I love ANYTHING hello kitty, I hope M will buy me the hello kitty stuff toy at Toy kingdom soon.


     Till then!

Tech talk: My first Impression with the Nokia X7


    The Nokia X7 definitely sets it apart from other Nokia handsets, because of the unique design, rugged but still classy at the same time. Pricewise, I can’t tell since I’m not yet sure if this has landed our ship already (figuratively speaking).

    The design looks bad ass, seems to be more fit for men rather than women (sort of looks like a robot/transformers), but if you’re a gamer and loves movies, then this is definitely the phone for you.

AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, 16M colors

                                           Fresh icons~





   Here’s a video of my impressions and a video sample from the X7. I wish you can see the video quality as it is really amazing for a smartphone. Now I know why it’s called the Entertainment smartphone, because it definitely is. As for gaming, it was slow since it only has 680 MHZ. 

    Watch the video here




    Till then!

Tech talk: Nokia X7 unboxing


    Hey everyone, as promised, here’s my revelation for the package I received. But before that, a shout out to (E, forgive me if I wasn’t able to reply to your text last night, I was busy and had to attend to some things, oh and that I don’t have load rin pala, wahahaha.)

     Anyway, I was given a chance (again) to review a Nokia phone, I didn’t hesitate to say yes, since I’m curious on the new OS Symbian^Anna of what it has to offer. So yes, you read it right! Symbian Anna for the Nokia X7. Here’s a run down of the unboxing.


            The box, return documentation and the mobile pop up cinema~




And the Pièce de résistance~



    The Nokia X7 is a entertainment smartphone, which has the updated (OS) operating system, Symbian Anna. Most Nokia phones runs on a Symbian / Symbian^3 and the discontinued Maemo software for the N900. The Anna is an updated OS which features a faster web browsing experience, new icon interface, an update to Ovi Maps and enhanced security features and a new split-screen view.

    The handset features a 4” inch touch screen AMOLED, with a stainless steel and glass design (you have to see it to believe it, lol). It has an 8MP camera, with dual LED flash. But more on the specs on my next post, or you can just google it xD

     I wish my camera can capture on how sleek the phone is and mind you it is more heavier than my android, because of the stainless steel finish.





                            I actually like how compact the box is~








                                             SD Slot~


                    l-r: USB charger, 3.5mm jack and the power button




                            headset, USB cable and charger

    More reviews and impressions in the coming days, since I have to test out other features first. I also made a video (navigation) but it’s taking forever to upload, will post that tomorrow instead.



   Till then!
