For those who already submitted their entries don't worry these entries are already counted and I will be add you previous entries to the new rafflecopter app so you will still qualify for the giveaway... :) Same mechanics still applies....

Good luck Lovelies! :)

November Skin care routine

Hi lovelies! Last month I have been receiving very plenty of remarks regarding my skin, some say that they really think I have no pores at all and one of my classmates even said that I look like I have "barbie like skin"! :) Some say that I am very lucky to have very good skin... I might say that I am lucky, I seldom have pimples and when I do I don't touch it and prick them I just let them be and they go away on their own. I credit this mostly on my genes, my mom has the same skin type as mine and she also rarely have pimples. But I would have to say that my skin care routine also contributes to my having really good skin too... so do you want to know what I use? Here are my usual skin care routine products...

I rarely use facial cleansers or wash this month because I am recently loving this gluta strawberry milk bar from Flawless Beauty Online. I let it foam on a facial towel and use it to wash my face. I may say that this soap helped make my skin become more radiant and soft... :)

After cleansing I use a toner, my toner this month is Rose Fairy from watsons, it has a faint smell of rose water and it has a very light non alcohol feel to it. then I follow it with Celeteque Eye brightener and Celeteque water based moisturizer.  But at nighttime I substitute the moisturizer with Shu Uemura's Phyto black lift.

There you go! That's my simple everyday skin care routine... :) How about you, what's your skin care routine? :)

NOTW: Blue lace

Hi ladies! :) It has been a long time since I did my nails though I kept my nails short this time... I used my favorite water nail decals. I decided to use this blue lacey pattern, not too loud not too subdued... :) What do you think of this design?

Happy FIRST Anniversary E'BTG!

Hello lovelies! :) I know you all remember my past two posts regarding a very exclusive event that I was given the chance to be a part of. ( See here: An exciting news and OOTD: 10/27/12 ) So here it is finally after almost three weeks! This is my Event post for the E'BTG First Anniversary! Well better late than never right?!? :)

Last October 27, 2012 together with my Blogger amiga Svetlani we went to Richmond hotel in Eastwood for the First Anniversary celebration of Everything 'bout the girl! :) Just a warning girls, picture heavy post coming up! :) 

Ms. Arra (she is Ms. Mymy's daughter, she's so pretty right? Like mother like daughter!) greeted us and gave us registration cards to fill up which will also serve as our raffle stubs. 

We were also given our super kikay welcome drinks! It was also pink!According to Ms. Myla it was Asti Martini, a sparkling wine. It was such a yummy sosy drink! 

 Ms. Myla Upshaw of MyMy Blog came out to the registration table and greeted us by name! When I saw her from afar I was so mesmerized actually starstruck! Super sexy and I was looking at her, she actually looked too young to be a mom of two! OMG! When she approached us, we really felt welcome and giddy because she knew who we were! See how happy we were! Big smiles all across our faces! :)  

 When we entered the hall where the event was to be done I knew immediately that everything in the venue from the littlest of details was so well thought of!

The  Open Buffet! The menu was filled with so many food that I can't make up my mind on what to eat! 

Eventually This is what I got, I got a plate full of desserts, I didn't eat this by myself though I shared it with Svetlani... hihi

My plateful of goodness! Carbonara fettucini, fish fillet with tartar sauce and I forgot the other two but all are so sumptuous,I wanted to go back for seconds but I had to watch my diet coz I am almost overweight na... haha

After the sumptuous lunch Ms. Mymy, the event hostess, started the program by telling us about what E'BTG is all about and how it came about. She then introduced us to Ms. Cathy Cantada-Dizon the chief makeup artist of Shu Uemura... :) She even taught us how to pronounce " Shu Uemura " correctly... hihi

Shu uemura goodies! Everything for us to try out and play with! Oh I was in makeup heaven!

Shu Uemura skin care products. I really wanted to try everything out! The Tsuya skin serum was really good, I have to buy it! :) 

Ms. Cathy Cantada-Dizon's work area. I love the big mirror!

Ms. Cathy in action with the model for the day Ms. Justine!

Ms. Cathy was so bubbly, and her smile was so infectious! We were so at home with her because she was very approachable and helpful, that she went around to help us in doing our own makeup looks for the day. :)

Camwhoring with my amiga Svetlani.

These are the products that I used, the brushes are mine and they are by Beauty cosmetics which I bought from Fabshopaholic. Then the Shu Uemura products... OMG! I fell in love with the pressed powder and the eye shadow! I only have the liquid foundation as of the moment but I would love to add more to my Shu Uemura colletion... hihi  See that versace lip liner? That one is Svetlani's, she was so kind that she let me borrow it. OMG! it was so easy to use, it has this rich bright reddish pink color that doesn't smudge nor feather. And it glides on oh so smoothly! If I only had the money I would buy tons of this product! Would you believe it, I didn't put on any lipstick on top of the liner! That's how pigmented and nice the color was. Ms. Cathy also noticed it and she also loved it! :) 

Vanity shot! I really love how my lips look! Who would believe me if I said that it is just lip liner ?!?

Ms. Cathy helped me out because I told her that it was really hard for me to do my eyeshadow because I had very heavily hooded lids. 

After the makeup session, Ms. Mymy introduced us as the bloggers who won the invites for EBTG First Anniversary. :) There was also a raffle, the prizes were tickets to The Breaking Dawn movie, some prizes from Belle and Cat Nail and Wax Studio, and a very cute pink makeup case! :) Oooh how I wish I had won but I wasn't too lucky that day... haha

With the very pretty and bubbly Ms. Cathy!

With  Supah Sexy Ms. Mymy Upshaw...

A Group Picture with all the lovely ladies! :)
It was such a great experience for me and I will never forget it! I sure hope that next year I would still get to be invited! 

My goodie bag from shu uemura and a small token from E'BTG and Belle and Cat Nail and Wax Studio! :) I can't wait to have spare time so I could go to Ms. Cathy's nail and wax studio, I really need the pampering now! :)

A Dainty Holiday Makeup and Nail art Contest !

Hello Ladies! I know i have been MIA lately! Super hectic duty schedule and I just can't find time to blog, but anyway  will make up for it by posting my Holiday makeup and nail art contest! Can you already feel the Christmas breeze? Well I can! And to celebrate the coming holidays I will be having my first ever makeup and nail art contest! I have seen that the trend for blogs right now are to have giveaways so I decided to make things a little bit more exciting... so aside from doing the usual rafflecopter tasks lets whip out those makeup and nail art brushes and create our holiday looks!

What are the contest rules?

  1. Create a "Dainty Holiday Makeup AND Nail art look", which means you have to do not only a makeup look but also a complementary nail art look. You are free to use any color combinations as long as it would show your interpretation of a "Dainty Holiday".
  2. The submission of entries will start from November 15 and will end on December 15.
  3. Do all the mandatory tasks in the rafflecopter.
  4. The photos submitted must be of high quality to facilitate judging of entries. If the photos are deemed unclear the entry will be disqualified during the first phase of judging. Again, make sure both before and after photos are large enough and clear enough for the judges to compare and vote on. The higher the resolution the better. 
  5. The first photo must be a head shot of yourself without makeup (the 'before' photo). The second photo must be a creative shot of the Holiday makeup and Nail art (the 'after' photo). I would prefer it if the creative shots will show both the makeup and nail art in one picture. Photo collages will not be allowed. 
  6. The captions for the photo must include the following:
  • Name of the look created
  • Specific products used
For the Nail Art:
  1. Your design must complement your holiday makeup look.
  2. The design must be done by you, on your own nails.
  3. Stamping, decals, wraps, stickers and use of acrylic paint are not allowed. Freehand designs only using nail polish is allowed. 
Here are samples of creative shots for "After" photos:
