OOTD: Wellness Week

i wore these shoes to work the entire week :D we had our first wellness week, and employees were encouraged to come to the office wearing our "work-out attire." i pretty much wear heels all the time (i need the height, haha), and it was a nice change to be able to come to work in rubber shoes. i actually hardly wear rubber shoes - i only do when i'm at the gym or when i go running, and i found it quite refreshing! i never realized how comfortable they really are :P  

so i wore a tennis skirt on one of our wellness days, for 2 reasons:
  1. i don't play tennis, so when am i really going to wear this? :P
  2. it's not exactly everyday your office allows you to wear one :P
i just paired the skirt (Nike) with a black top (Kamiseta), and i wore my La Salle jacket (Adidas) over it.

i can't believe i pulled off wearing this to the office! my dad even asked me if i was going to the gym hahaha!

Orgasm Lust Lip and Cheek Set

ever since i started blogging/reading about makeup, the NARS Orgasm blush has been on my wishlist. when i saw the NARS Orgasm Lust Lip and Cheek Set on Sephora, i just couldn't resist anymore! i had my friend order it for me, and i even got 20% off thanks to the Sephora Friends & Family Sale, sweet! :D

this limited edition set pairs NARS' best-selling blush and bronzer, Orgasm and Laguna, in a mirrored mini compact. it also includes a mini lipgloss in Super Orgasm. totally lust-worthy, right ;)

Naked Palette

when i first saw this palette on the internet, i just fell in love! i'm more of a neutral gal, i normally gravitate towards my pink chocolate collection when doing my eyes in the morning. this palette contains the most gorgeous neutral colors, and it just screamed my name! i read the reviews on sephora, and they just drew me in even more, i couldn't wait to get one for myself!

unfortunately, there was so much demand for this palette that it was out of stock everywhere. i then heaved a huge sigh and signed up for urban decay's waiting list in the meantime. that was around september 2010. about a month or so passed, and i finally received an email from them saying that i had one reserved for me! i immediately begged my friend from new york to order it for me online (i couldn't purchase it myself, as the site only accepts US issued credit cards). she received the palette around the end of october.

my friend and i agreed she would ship it here in manila in november. that was still a long wait away, but i didn't mind, i was just happy to have a palette of my own. her balikbayan box arrived around the 4th week of december. i was in sydney at the time, so i had to wait for 2 more weeks before i could get my hands on it. i finally received my palette in the 1st week of january 2011. i opened the package in my office cubicle, and i must have looked like a crazy person because i was just staring at the palette with this lovesick look in my eye. haha, i told you, i was in love!   

okayyyyy, sorry for the long intro, i just wanted to share "how i met my naked palette" :D

EOTD: Natural Eye

my Natural Eye Neutral Eye Shadow Collection comes with 3 "how-to" cards which teach you everything you need to know to create the "perfect" natural eye.

i played with my palette today and recreated the looks :)


so this is a very simple look. it's very easy to do, it'll take you just about a minute or so! ;) i think this is good for those who don't really wear much makeup but just want a little bit of definition. :)

Natural Eye Collection

my sister gave me the Natural Eye Neutral Eye Shadow Collection by Too Faced for Christmas :) isn't it great when your friends and family support your obsessions :D

the kit contains 9 eye shadows for creating the perfect natural eye. these shadows were formulated and hand-selected by Too Faced founder himself, Jerrod Blandino. that makes me feel like i own a piece of art :)

Happy New Year!

hi everyone! :)

i know i've neglected this site.. there are tons of FOTDs, OOTDs, makeup hauls, and reviews that i just did not have the time nor energy to put up. i'd rather not get into it, so let's just say 2010 was a bit of a rollercoaster ride.

well i'm hoping to change that this year. :) i've missed blogging, reading about other ladies' infatuation on makeup and everything pretty, and sharing mine. :P

so here's to another kikay-filled year! ;) happy 2011 everyone! :)


p.s this photo was taken at our Christmas party last year. we were supposed to dress up as Filipino icons. i just bought a sash and voilà, Miss Philippines! haha :)
