LOL like the heading?
i have to start getting my ass back into blogging more often! so much things have happened but i'm gonna put that in another post. today, im just gonna keep it light, and show you guys what i've done to help me pick out my polishes better instead of being that usual indecisive me. LOL
So here's what i got at Daiso in San Fran
They're basically just plastic nails connected to the center rod. Flimsy, but perfect for what i use them for.
Sooo....this is what i use them for, hahahaha...paint them and then w/e colors i think i wanna do, i just place them over my nails like so....
and if it's what my little heart desires, then i take out the bottle and paint it on. yea watch the video, it explains it all ROFL

Hey guys, my birthday is not in 2 months but...babes got me something early!!! ♥
I saw this at a little boutique near my job and i told my bf about it and he bought it and couldn't keep it from me LOLL I WAS SOOO EXCITED!!! i wanted this piece because it matched the dress i bought for my birthday!!! It's a bold statement necklace so it needs something simple to match wtih it! it's so elegant and antique looking...so unique yet classic...i looooove it!!!
So here's the necklace, isn't it pretty ;D
I love the silouette of the girl...it's so elegant and gives it a nice regal feeling ♥
Sooo, this is my dress in the fitting room...yea sorry about the coral bra...didn't expect to go to the mall that day haha ;D yea this is at Joyce Leslie and the dress was only $22.00 AND I LOOOOVE ITT!!!! makes me look so skinny LOLLL i thought the necklace would match the simple elegance of the lace caplet sleeves...
Side view...sorry it's such crappy quality, it was taken with my phone LOL
Oh and i lost so much weight!!! this dress is in a size medium and i haven't been able to fit into mediums since like 9th or 10th grade!!! i'm in my fourth year of college now!!! i used to be classified by my doctor as obese...LOL yea i was that bad...and now i'm just overweight going closer and closer to the normal range!! i'm so happy and excited!! ♥ ♥ ♥
Tummy fat is soo hard to get rid off...sighhh i hate cardio but have to do it to melt those stubborn lipids!!
Upclose of the lacey caplet sleeves...it actually runs around my back and to the other shoulder...it's so elegant... ♥
What do you guys think? matchy matchy or no? i really like the dress and the necklace and one of these days when i can, i'll take a pic of both of them on... let me know =]

Hey ladies, I wanted to review something that I've been using for the past few months and it is definitely my favorite!!!
You guys probably know this already but it's Smith's Rosebud Salve!!
I've already hit pan on it, and I've had it for the past 3 months!
This is by far my favorite lip quencher. When my lips or even my skin is dry, i reach for this and in five minutes, it's smooth and kissable! it's amazing and i know everyone swears by carmex (i dont like the smell) but i loveeee this!! I think it smells like roses and the texture is kinda like Vaseline. Basically I've tried chapsticks, softlips, fresh's $22 lip treatment, and carmexes and this is my absolute favorite. I've even jumped on the bandwagon and bought an EOS lip balm but i hate it. It just sits on top of my lips and does nothing to soften my lips! it's cute but i will not repurchase! the salve is different...it is quickly absorbed and softens almost immediately!! I've already finished one, almost done with this one and i got a backup...LOL yes i have become obsessed with this!!
For $6 at sephora, it's actually a good deal since it would last you a long time!!
With the EOS, it smells great, but it just sits on top of my lips. i hate that feeling so i end up wiping it away...the packaging is too cute...but i will definitely not repurchase. i know alot of girls really like this product but it does nothing for me...LOL
Sooo...here's the latest pic of me and the BF♥
Couldn't resist a walk in the park with babes♥ and the cherry blossom trees were in bloom...they are amazing....and yea thanks for reading guys...it means alot to me!!! ♥ ♥ ♥

Hey guys these last few weeks were a blur...last week was spring break and the week before that was midterms week so i've been running around hectic =] but it's almost all over! yay just about of month of school left and it's summer vacation!!! yay ;D♥
sooo...here's an update of what i look like haha ;D
lost some weight and i think i look fine dont you? ;P hehe ♥
Mini Haul at the CVS sale ;D
Everything here is what you see...i especially love the Revlon Makeup Eraser Pen b/c i make so many mistakes all the time so this is a giant help for me...i bought one as a backup ;D last one that they had!!
Sidetracking, My BF baked me some BOMB ASS cookies! white chocolate chunk! dipped in pink chocolate!!! omigosh can he cook ;D
So here's us about 4 years or 5 years ago...
And here's us last week at lounge in AC...haha see the difference?
We actually met in Junior High School when we were like 10? LOL and the weird thing was i had a huge crush on him...and so we "dated" for about three years...and yes that meant really nothing since we were so young...but he did take my first kiss...and hug...and he was the first boy i "fell in loveish" with LOL but, after 8th grade, he moved to Colorado, and we lost touch for about three years...and when i turned 17[end of junior year in high school], he came back to nyc for the summer...we started talking again and he asked me out again...so we decided to have a long distance relationship and it worked out...it's been almost 5 years and we haven't regretted a single thing. He's the most sweetest, understanding, caring person I've ever met. He's always there to support me and hear me out when i have something to say. We rarely have anything to argue about. my friend told me that if a couple doesn't have arguments, they aren't normal since they are bottling up everything inside. but the truth is, we just enjoy each other's company and don't feel like there's anything we gotta argue about...so we dont. He was my first true love and hopefully my last. He's always there physically and emotionally. Babes, you mean the world to me. I love you ♥
i've always believed in soulmates but i didn't know i would find mine so soon...we actually met by chance and if it wasn't for something that happened in his family when he graduated from elementary school, he wouldn't have moved to NYC from rhode island and i wouldn't have ever met him. I'm grateful to have him in my life becuase he has shown me so much more meaning and depth to this crazy thing we call life. Thanks bebs. i truly to do love you with all my heart. ♥
Sorry to have you guys read this sappy thing LOL

OH and guys, i was in my marketing class and we were talking about the creator of GILT.COM and i searched up the website, it's actual pretty cool...it's like Hautelook.com so you have to be invited but the things are alot cheaper...for instance i really really wanted this bag but i couldn't find it anywhere...
Originally $398 but on Gilt.com it was $79!!!
This is the BCBG Rita handbag that I've seen around school and i love it..but it was sold out! ='[
But yea, Gilt.com has alot of brands like Diesel, BCBG, French Connection, and more...and it's definately worth checking out so happy shopping ladies!! But, you have to be quick because once they post the sales, things fly off shelves so quickly! i need to grab things more quickly!!

I got these four things, plus one from the Too Fabulous collection.
Sun & Moon from the Too Fab collection...I LOVEEE THIS SO MUCH!!! i've always loved mineralized duo blushes and this is such a neutral pinkie shade....the middle color is the mixed of the two...it's so flattering. i really gotta stop buying min blushes in neutral tannish colors LOL
Two Lippies, Blooming Lovely and Ever Hip
One beauty Powder, Shell Pearl I love this, it's like a very natural looking illuminator/highlighter for your face ;D so pretty!!
One Blush, Prim&Proper I loveee this because i only seem to old tanish and pinkish blushes and this is the perfect nude blush for me...it gives me that natural after a brisk walk color on my cheeks ;D
Nail Haul!!! i really didn't need more polishes...but i wanted some new ones..hehehe ;D
Matte Magic, Platinum Pearl, Atlantis, Something Sweet, Millenium, Peachy Keen, Lemon Fizz, Metallic Muse =]
Wild Wisteria, Thorned Rose
When you go to Macys and you try on a b.tempt'd bra, you get a free nail polish! since i have connections at Macy's Herald Square, I got both of them for free ;D yay!!! these were the two colors that they gave out and i loveee the purple one! i really wanted Grape Pop by China Glaze, but i crossed it out in favor of Atlantis up there..so I'm really glad i got this purple one for me ;D Thorned rose is a really pretty dark red with a blue undertone color...i love both of them especially since they were free!!! I've never tried Orly's before so now i am excited to do so!!!

This is what i do with my 50+ hour workweek...yea and i go to school ;D
Work hard, haul harder LOL
Mega Haul ;D yes yes i know i have to find some way to curb this addiction...haha ;x
The goodies ;D i went a little lip crazy because i fell in love while i was swatching...and i really didn't own much MAC lippies...so this was my excuse to get some!
This blush is sooo flattering! especially on me because i am so medium toned...this is sort of a cross between a soft baby pink and nude...but it's soooo pretty...i'm so in love!! haha ;x Dainty is not part of the collection i know...but i loved it nonetheless C=
This is the Azalea Blossom...i wanted ripe peach...but they were out and this was the last AB that they had...so i snatched it up ♥
Oh look at all those lippie goodies! omigosh i went a little crazy i agree...but love is love right? i work hard enough for me to splurge once in a while!
My babies ;D seriously though, i need to use them all up for B2M!! Their names are in the next one, in the same order as the swatches!
Beigeland -I really was iffy about this shade...but it seemed to work nice with gloss, not by itself. I thought i would be a shiny nude but it tends to lean a little on the bronzy side....
Pink Burst - HOT ASS PINK! with high silver micro shimmers!!! reminds me of my favorite lipstick (of course Girl About Town ;x) but GAT is amplified which is a much more pronounced color and not an everyday(unless you dare ;s) and yet pink burst is more subtle...haha if beigeland and GAT had a baby, it would be pink burst!! i still love my baby GAT because of the intense color! gives a pop to any look!
Victorian - Very creamy pink with fine gold microshimmers...i love this to pieces! it's so unexpected and it works so well on my medium skin tone!
Fresh Salmon - Just what it sounds like. A RAW salmon color with golden microshimmers...also works wonders with my skin! For the record, I'm just a little bit darker than NC40. I wear YSL #2 foundation so...yea kinda darker than much chinese girls i know haha ;x I use this lippie OFTEN because it's such a nice dark coral color...makes me happy C=
Colour Me Coral - also what the name is..it's such a pretty coral color! my MUA swatched it on my hand and i was like give me a tube of that STAT! i really really wanted a coral color and this was perfect! (i DO NOT use tester lipsticks on my lips. it makes me cringe)
Lady Gaga - yea...i heard everyone raving about this so i jumped on the bandwagon...LOL it's like a less bright Saint Germain which i also love so i ended up loving this! i put a darker pink lipgloss over this and it's the perfect combo!
Cha Cha Lipglass - ligher pink and my MUA said it would look best layered over all of the lippies i bought...AND SHE WAS FRIGGIN RIGHT!! haha ;x i loveee how it looks on me! used alone, it's kinda nude and gives your lips a slight shimmer but with lipsticks, BAM! it's awesome!
Hush, Hush Rose Lipglass - wow, i had to say i didnt want to give this one up! sooo pigmented and it could be used alone! i use it over a super bright lippie like saint germain and it gives it that perfect notch which makes it perfect for everyday wear...i love this so much because it's the perfect hot pink lipgloss...mmmmmm
haha i was doing the comparisons while looking at the swatches on my arm while comparing it with swatches of the lippies that i already own...haha all my other mac lippies were either too bright or too popping out so i needed some new mac lippies that i could wear everyday!
Here's the combo that i wear everyday because i looooove the look!

Hey guys ♥
We were bored on Monday since there was no school so the bf drove me, sis and sis's friend down to Jersey Shores Premium Outlets...and i was never more disappointed when i go to outlets...there was almost nothing there, and we were done in about 3 hours (i usually take the whole day at Jersey Gardens) Well, there was something good there which was the CCO ♥ I was so happy =] haha the majority of my time spent at JSPO was at CCO ;D haha i love Mac on bargains so this is my Mega Haul ;D
The blacked out areas is for a friend =] i dont want her to know what i got her so i will show the pic in the future...LOl i also got Claire's pastel nailpolishes that i've been forever trying to find...sighhh and Tommy Girl, one of my ultimate FAV perfumes...cus it smells like lychees in the summer...i wish it was summer...so sick of the snow...plus my car is a low lying sports car...so the snow/ice scratches the bottom...sighhh
I also got the Heatherette from Krystal but i forgot about it and got another one...LOL so it would be going to my sister ;D the one next to it is Perfect Topping
Heatherette - Smooth Harmony swatch
I love love love the MSF i got so i got another one...in Perfect Topping...both can be perfect highlighters ;D
Sugarsweet - Refined, Perfect Topping
Next to each other, you could see that Perfect Topping has a slight lavendar tint to it while Refined is more pinkish nude...and they both give me that really dewy glow since my skin is really really dull...
Neo Sci Fi - Spaced out
I have to say i fell in love with it the moment i saw it...LOL it's so pretty...it has a peachy base with micro pink shimmers...very very flattering ;D
Red She Said - Stark Naked
I skipped this collection but now i regret it!!! i got this b/c of it's rasberry pink undertone and the gorgeous gold micro shimmers...it's really really flattering!
I loveeeed my Grand Duo mineralize Blushes b/c they were so gorgeous on my medium tone skin so i got two more ;D
Color Craft - Cheek&Cheerful
Swatches ;D i loooove these! Warm soul is like a more pinkish nude while C&C has more of a golden undertone which is perfect for us asian ladies ;D haha both give major flattering micro shimmers...and i usually put this on first, then top it off with my MSF to make it appear more natural ♥
Red, She Said - Danger Zone
Pigment - Bell Bottom Blue
I heard really really good reviews of how great Dangerzone is so i had to get it to try out myself...can't say i LOVE it but...it's nice...the black and silver is really wearable..but i dunno about the red...hahaha looks like someone needs more sleep if they wear the red all over the lid eh? The BBB was actually picked by the MUA b/c i wanted a blue pigment...and it was gorgeous! it's not as pale as baby blue and not as harsh as navy blue...it's the perfect shade in between ;]
Metal-X - Metalblu
I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS!!!! it's almost a chrome finish on the lids especially if applied wet like my finger there C= and it just pops out!! it's so pretty and wearable!
So i am finished with the mega haul ladies, thanks for reading, and i want to say hello to all the new followers, thanks for your support!!! umm....i have forever 21 hair accesories coming up, with nails and stuff...so stay tuned!!
