Story of my life..

whaddup mah peeps!! So yesterday, I experimented with my hair again. Dyed it in flaxen πŸ˜‰

I was actually aiming for golden brown or ash blonde locks.. But it turned out to be okay. Still happy πŸ™‚

And today, I had food and retail therapy because I’ve been spending months just inside the house. Long story short, I took an off-sem so I basically have 6 months of “vacation” til I go back to school.

After dyeing my hair yesterday, I finally realized that my brows need the pampering they deserve. So I went to the salon today and had it threaded and re-shaped πŸ™‚ By the way, it was really painful!!!!!!! The last time I had threading was two months ago. I was basically crying the whole time HAHA
Also, I went around the mall by myself so I ended up buying whatever I find pleasant to my eyes. One day millionaire. Now I’m broke and back to bumming.

Happy dappy πŸ™‚ was satisfied with my brows! I even gave tip to my err.. what do you call them? “stylist” HAHA

Then I went to Bo’s coffee shop to meet up with a good friend of mine, Christine and talked for ours. Then on the way home (she gave me a ride), we dropped by our plaza to eat street food. Their kwek kwek (or Quail’s egg) isn’t too yummy! But it was my first time to eat fried isaw –chicken’s intestine Β (I used to eat only the grilled ones). Twas really good!
No pics to show by the way since I was busy eating HAHA

There you have it! I’ve been missing in action coz I went to my mom’s hometown, Dipolog City. Just got home last Sunday. Will make a separate post about my trip.

Bye for now.

Bisous,

Γ  lΓ¨vres: Lippies and Other Drugs

Admit it. A tube of lipstick/gloss is always a guilty pleasure for every girl.
I am nervous and excited about my first ever beauty-make up blog post but let’s get this on.

I’m lucky enough to have Ninez as one of my best friends because apart from having bangs in common, (*wink wink!) our love for lippies kind of brings us closer.
Why don’t you guys click this (thanks nezi for giving this link to me) to know the Chicest, Most Flattering Red Lipsticks for Fall? πŸ™‚

Also,
I’ve been saving bucks for MAC’s Venomous Villain Collection. It’s to die for!

OM NOM NOM πŸ™‚

I told you it’sΒ  lippie lust!

So since I’m not actually a trust fund baby, you could only count with your fingers the MAC tubes that I own.

There are still lippies that are nice and affordable like this lip concealer/nude from Etude House. I started using this because my cousin, Nicole introduced it to me.

You can actually wear it in many ways! πŸ™‚

It’s best to use it as a base before you put your lip color. It actually makes the shade last long πŸ™‚

ME on nude.

I don’t usually wear dark colors unless I go out to party because my typical school look is always with a heavy eyeliner. So I have to keep my lips simple to match my strong eyes or else I’ll look like a stripper in a nursing uniform. HAHA kidding!

My everyday lippie is Maybelline‘s Watershine Pure P24

It’s simple and chic plus I have my Watermelon ‘N Cream Lipsmacker (Vanilla Creams series) as base so I can actually have flavored lips! HAHA

During occasions, I use Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush: Strawberry Fields. It’s color red and lasts really long plus it’s very yummy! πŸ™‚
I have my H&M lipgloss go with it but it already doesn’t really need a base.

Mine’s so overused you can’t actually read it or can barely make out the words HAHA

Lastly, I’m gonna show you my most favorite lipstick.
Lancome’s Color Design All Done Up Cream. It lasts 24 hours and doesn’t even fade even if you’re eating or brushing your teeth! (I swear!).
It looks good with Lancome’s Juicy Tube lipgloss too.

That’s not actually the color so I had to take a picture of my own tube πŸ™‚

So there you go guys! πŸ™‚ I would like to hear your lippie suggestions.
Thanks so much for reading. Comments are highly appreciated! πŸ˜‰

Happy Sunday!

much love,
NICA :*

Embracing Awesomeness!

So I woke up and..

found out that Bianca Gonzales read my blog! and she replied! πŸ˜€
I had to read it thrice to actually digest everything HAHA.
So I just stayed at home (like good girls do!) and yes, on a SATURDAY.
But I don’t mind anyway. Today is the day to finally see the outcome of yesterday’s randomness (if you’ve read my previous post you will understand.)

Before I stepped on the shower..

I had to say goodbye to my Bianca G. look haha! πŸ™‚

TADAHHH! πŸ™‚
My post shower look. Mission accomplished? πŸ˜‰
Thanks to Bench Fix. I really trust you guys!
Also, before I go out to run some errands, I wanna share with you guys what made my day (as if Bianca’s comment was not enough. HAHA)

My Auntie Nancy commended me about my blog.β™₯ β™₯
I love my family! πŸ™‚ and I’m glad I made them proud too. I’m starting to get serious about this whole blogging thing haha.

Okay bye now! Going to the tailor for future surprise πŸ˜‰

DFTBA! β™₯ [Don’t Forget To Be Awesome]

Love lots,
NICA :*
