Cosmo Love!

last year, my friends and i went to the Cosmo Youniverse event, and we got featured in their website :) in order to get into the event, you would have to present your copy of the May 2009 issue. now that was actually the 1st time i purchased the magazine. i haven't really bought any magazines since i was in high school (i used to read Seventeen, i think), i guess i just lost interest. Cosmo reignited my love for fashion, beauty, and everything kikay! :) i liked the magazine so much that i begun buying issue after issue, until i finally got a subscription :)

now who would have thought that after a year, i would actually get to see myself in Cosmo's glossy pages? :D

i submitted this picture on a whim. i was lounging at Lagen resort, reading the magazine, when i realized - hey i'm wearing animal prints, and so is bea! so i thought it'd make a cool picture ;)

i received a text from my friend saying i won. i couldn't believe it! i wasn't able to contain my excitement, i actually went and bought the July issue even though my copy is on its way in the mail. hey, it's not exactly everyday that i would get featured in a magazine! :P

thank u Cosmo Philippines! :) :) :)

Shock Value

watched Timbaland's Shock Value II Tour last night! :D

i wore 2 favorites from my closet: a loose fitting top from Supre, and a mini-skirt (that's actually a pair of shorts) from Tomato :) although it was a standing concert, i risked wearing heels, wedges from Charles and Keith, because i needed the extra height, haha. my feet were killing me afterwards (seriously in pain!), but seeing Justin Timberlake was so worth it! :D

we originally bought Gold tickets, but my friend Kath and I regretted not buying VIP tickets instead. so when we got there, we inquired if we could trade our tickets, and Ticketworld obliged! yeyyyyy! so so happy! :D i probably wouldn't have enjoyed the concert as much if we were only in the Gold section :P

Etude House Haul

another mini haul :)

i dropped by Etude House yesterday to pick up the Dual Fibre Brush that i had reserved. i wanted to buy a separate Stippling Brush for blush (i use my 187 for foundation), and lots of gals have been raving about Etude House's :)

i also bought 2 more things: their Mascara Guide, which seemed really handy,

plus the Romantic Beauty Stand, which i thought was really pretty, and would make a good house for my brushes :)

Today's Mini Haul

i haven't posted anything in a while, work's been pretty crazy, so i haven't had time to blog, nor take pictures of FOTDs or OOTDs. well i don't have work today, so i went to makati to do a bit of shopping. just thought i'd share what i got :D

i went to Rustan's and bought a full sized bottle of Stila's Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer in Light 03. i have a sample size, and i am loving it :) i bought the Oil Free variant, and it has a higher SPF too (this one has SPF 30, while the normal variant has SPF 15).

FOTD: Rocking Red

this is my entry to Lipstick Rules 50 Days of Lipstick Giveaway :)

every kikay girl needs to have the perfect red lipstick in her makeup arsenal. for me, it's like your secret weapon. you don't use it all the time - only when you want to look super fierce ;)

to achieve gorgeous red lips, i use NYX Round Lipstick in Electra topped with Maybelline Water Shine 3D Essence in Strawberry Infusion.

Battle of the Nose Strips

i bought The Face Shop's White Mud Nose Pack a few months ago, and i just wondered if i made a right choice in investing on this pack instead of buying other nose strips that are available on the market. so i decided to buy some at the mall, and have an experiment. my nose was riddled with blackheads today, i counted at least 3 on my nose bridge. *ugh* read on to see how the nose strips fared. they were used one after the other..

My New 'Do

my hair's been looking pretty limp and lifeless, so i decided it was time for a haircut. off i went to bench fix salon in g4, and asked for sir kc, my stylist.

the result: shoulder length hair with layers

*pardon my makeup free face*

oh, and i just want to share my new hair color ;) i had it done last month.

*with flash*

i thought i'd give red-ish hair a twirl :D

i wasn't really planning on doing away with the curls, but kc said this length better suited me.

*a day before my haircut*

what do u think?

so i guess i'm back to straigh-ish hair. time to start combing my hair again! haha, ever since i permed my hair i didn't really have a need for a brush or comb anymore =P
