Goodies + Goodies

I started this month with a haul post.. I can't believe I'm ending it with another one! Let say I was able to save a little from last month's budget and so I treated myself a little bit more. Oppss.. justification doesn't sound easy when you're feeling guilty. Hehehe. Anyway, I didn't pay for all of these items. FYI, I won in a certain blog contest that's why this post is titled double goodies.




python shoulder bag/ clutch from SM..



Parisian cap-toe shoes from SM..



psychedelic print cardigan and yellow jeans from SM..



Leopard bow flats from Payless and indoor slippers still from SM..



Maybelline gel foundation and pink lipstick from Watsons


The Stuff I won:

Xend brought this package to the gates.



What's inside: electric pleated skirt, bustier floral top, notebooks, cosmetics and accessories.

Thanks to Daphne Huang of I Glow in the Dark. Dear, you really made my day when you announced I won your giveaway. Again, thanks for inviting me to join contest so lucky to win it! :)

PFW Holiday 2012: Jian Lasala for Ready to Wear Collection

I thought I'll never get to watch any show of Philippine Fashion Week due to my long summer vacation. Feeling lucky, I scored invites from a couple of designers and a local brand. I was able to catch a total of 3 shows and took almost 500 photos. The whole things was exhausting, thinking of what to wear to the shows, battling the traffic to SMX Convention Center and back, and staying up late but it's all worth it. I got to see new people and realized a few good things about Philippine brands and designers. For the first good thing, let me share to you Jian Lasala's designs for the Ready to Wear Collection.




Jian Lasala's aesthetic is extreme minimalism.




Hence, the plain color and the very simple design.



Less is more in fashion.



Like what 
Leonardo da Vinci once said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.”

SM Ladies' Fashion Holiday 2012 Collection

If there's a place where I always, always shop for clothes.. that's only SM. I mean, I also go to boutiques and branches of both local and international brands, but SM Department Store has more affordable choices for me. Anyway, here are my personal picks from SM Ladies' Fashion Holiday 2012 Collection with top fashion bloggers on the runaway.



Camille Co's sleeveless white top and polka dot ensemble and Patricia Prieto's dress with lace lining are screaming retro.



I have to say these tops Laureen Uy and Lissa Kahayon are wearing reminds me of Marc Jacobs Collection for 
Louis Vuitton Spring Summer 2012.



Pastel colors, mullet skirts, sheer fabrics and florals are still in. Yay, I would like to have those pale orange top and yellow platforms.




Here are some maxi dresses in bold and bright color for the beach. You know, it's always summer here in the Philippines! :)



More must-haves for the holidays is that tailored jacket and electric pleated skirt. Pang Kate Middleton ang peg. Hey, those 
cobalt blue trousers that Pauline Prieto (Patricia's sister) is wearing look pretty stylish too.



And the scarf dresses in fun colors are here. I love them both. They'll be perfect for year-end parties.




Still stripes, laces and sheers. Don't you adore that finale dress Ria Bolivar is wearing? Bravo SM Ladies'!

Sale Find: Orange Skinny Jeans

I really wanted a pastel yellow pair of jeans. I found one in a nearby mall but it was not available in my size. Disappointed and discouraged, I grabbed the same design in an orange color. Ugh, I know I am sometimes impatient like that. Good thing it made a good fit and I paid it with an affordable price. The photo doesn't reflect the right color of this jeans, but it's actually more orangey in person.





Sale Find: Rogue Orange Jeans
Surplus Price: P499.75
Sale From: Surplus Store - Megamall


I previously searched Polyvore for some orange jeans and found really fabulous jeans in good price so I am sharing it here. If you check the list below, you'll notice that those sexier ones are even cheaper. How cool is that?

Who's bare face do you like the most?

In college, I remember our Natural Science teacher telling the fairest girls in our class to retouch with some powder and lipstick before the class starts because she noticed them wearing no makeup. I was already 19 that time but still questioning myself why girls should use makeup at the back of my mind. Honestly, it didn't make a lot of sense to me as a late bloomer. At this point of my life where I'm already turning 32, I, of course, completely understand why girls cover their faces with makeup. By the use of some techniques and appropriate colors, one pretty woman can become prettier. Too bad that it can also do the opposite if not done properly. Here are some Hollywood celebs to testify. Check who's bare face is the prettiest of them all.


Lady Gaga. She is now in the country for her concert in Pasay tonight and Tuesday.


Beyonce Knowles


Heidi Klum


Keira Knightley


Kim Kardashian


Rihanna


Miley Cyrus



Brooklyn Decker



Of all these ladies, my favorite bare face would have to Heidi Klum's. Can you believe that? She looks way younger without makeup? On the other hand, Beyonce no make up look is okay but better with makeup on.

Mark Zuckerberg Marries Priscilla Chan

Sorry ladies, no more hope to go out on a date with one of the world's youngest billionaires, Mark Zuckerberg, because the guy is now married. The founder and CEO of Facebook just tied the knot with his long time Chinese-American girlfriend Priscilla Chan. The two met at Harvard University and were said to be together for over nine years. Wow, that's long enough so it's about time!





Mark and Priscilla have been very private with their relationship that finding photos of them together in the world wide web wasn't easy. Finally, May 19, 2012 marked the big day when both Mark Zuckerberg (28) and Priscilla Chan (27) changed their Facebook status into "married". Mark shared this photo in his Facebook wall to which almost 500, 000 people already clicked liked and almost 500 people commented.

Priscilla graduated with a degree in pediatrics at the University of California (San Francisco) on Monday. That was the same day that Mark turned 28, so nobody suspected that it was going to be a marriage ceremony when guests fewer than 100 gathered at his backyard in Palo Alto, California on Saturday!

Congratulations and best wishes Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan!!
Welcome to the marriage life!!!

My First Pink Lipstick

This is my first time to buy a pink lipstick to play with. I used to think that pink lipstick aren't good for me because of my skin complexion. Well, the world evolved and they developed pink lippies for every skin color. Let's check this one if it suits my skintone.



Ever Bilena Extreme lipstick. Got this from the grocery for only P150.

   
Beautiful pink color. I love how it looks almost perfect except for that line.

    
Pink Goddess. That's the name of the shade.


On my lips. What do you think?




Ugh, I think I have to try another pink lipstick. I already handed-down this lippie to a younger friend with fairer complexion. Do you have a favorite pink lipstick? How about you suggest some lovely pink lippie that will suit me. Thanks in advance!
