Summer Nails 2014

It’s summer officially and because I am such a lively person (*eherm*) I obviously love colorful stuff. Summer is do doubt the perfect season to be all colorful and bright! But don’t get too excited with colors ladies, make sure also you won’t look like the red traffic light stopping everyone at your very presence and worst leaving them to stare (in a not so good way). What I am saying is, do your research and look for the bright colors that compliment your skin tone the best! THAT – talking about clothing fashion.

Anyway, today is not for OOTD. I want to share my nail color pegs for summer. On being colorful, the nails are the best accessories we have that we can afford to be changing as often as we want to! Different colors, different shapes and coats! However you want it, it’s up to you. Here are SOME colors I would recommend to sport on this bright and hot season.

12 Makeup Tips for the Face

Most women are contented with just pressed powder and a lipstick and then they are good to go. I am guilty of the simplicity oftentimes. There’s nothing wrong with being simple, in fact, it takes courage to go out in an almost bare face.

BUT! Whether we like it or not, there will be times where we need to glam up. Or perhaps the time will come that you will realize that a little everyday makeup makeup is necessary. When that time comes, I hope these tips will help.


makeup tips for women

Here are some tips to aid you in both taking good care of the face and some little makeup tips.

  1. First, a clean and healthy face is a great canvass. Maintain it naturally or have it professionally analyzed and treated when it is necessary.
  2. Using Powder over a cream blush is a big NO NO! It can cake and look unnatural.
  3. Experiment with the consistency of your makeup base so that natural skin shines through, by mixing it with a dab of moisturizer or a drop of rosewater, depending on whether your skin is dry or oily
  4. For a sheer, pretty look, apply foundation with a moist sponge
  5. Less makeup is best; the more sheer your makeup base is, the less makeup you will need to look good.
  6. Avoid contouring your face, it looks very artificial (if you are not good at it). Leave it to the professionals.
  7. Make it a point to blend. Makeup should never look obvious; it should just enhance the skin and facial features.
  8. For a tanned look, you can make your own foundation color by blending a little brown eye shadow in the palm of your hands and mixing it with your base, adding a drop of moisturizer. The amount of shadow you use will determine the intensity of the hue.

Blackheads Home Remedy – Cinnamon Powder

Blackheads are annoying and let’s admit it, it’s not a pretty sight to see. Oftentimes, we go to skin care clinics to help us get rid of this annoying little black things on our face. But not everyone loves the pricking! If you are like me who finds pricking very uncomfortable, try this homemade remedy to combat blackheads.

Cinnamon can be used to remove blackheads and even prevents their future growth. Here’s how:

Recipe 1:

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • honey – enough to create a thick paste
  • Mix cinnamon powder and honey
  • Apply mixture to affected area
  • Leave it overnight and rinse the following day

Recipe 2:

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1 pinch turmeric powder
  • Mix everything to form a paste
  • Apply mixture to affected area
  • Leave it overnight and rinse the following day

This works best when you do this in 10 consecutive days. Hope this helps! :)

Online Shopping Haul

I have always pointed out in my previous posts how the Internet revolutionized shopping. Shopping before means getting our pretty little assess off our chair and actually go out of our house and spend hours (transportation and actual shopping) to get the deed done. But now with the evolution of technology, some ways of living have also been changed. Shopping for instance! It can now be done at the comfort of ones own home. All we need is just an internet connection and of course some online means to pay for the stuff we love (paypal, credit/debit card etc.).

Admittedly I was skeptical back then with online shopping as I don’t want to share credit cards information online (adding the horror stories of stolen credit cards and identities online I heard and read). It took me a while to actually trust online shopping. A good review on online shopping stores really is a huge help to entice skeptics like me :) .

Well anyway, here are my latest haul. This time, I got all these from ZaloraPH, one of Philippines most successful and largest online shopping site.

I am not really a huge fan of an OOTD (Outfit Of The Day), rather I am not the OOTD person but I find it more space saving to show more stuff in one setting, so here is my attempt! :P

These shoes if I am not mistaken are made in the Philippines so I guess having them also gives us the opportunity to help our local shoemakers.
