People would expect me to write about my trip escapades after a long absence but it will not be the case this time .The day I got back from my US trip, my lola passed away (Just yesterday). It was shocking news as she was better and healthier before I left. Regretting the possibility that I could have stayed just a day or two more to be with her or comfort my mom there. A lot has been bothering me but then came to realize that my lola just wanted the better for me. I left US feeling blessed with all the experiences I had. Literally, this has been my most fulfilling trip ever. My lola just wanted my trip to stay as it is..up to the end she made sure I got back in the Philippines feeling happy. My lola loves me more than I can imagine. It’s a tough break but I know its for the best. She will be in a better place and will be with my tita riza. Thanks to all who’s been there for me, the prayers and comfort I got in this troubled time. I appreciate it all. I love you Lola.

I just had to get them. The little pretty palettes from Sugarpill are something I’ve been longing to have ever since I’ve seen swatches from Temptalia and her high rating on the products. I’m not sure what kept me from buying these things (uhh, maybe because you’re not an eyeshadow user and the more they are bright in-your-face eyeshadows?).. I mean how long it took me to decide, they’re just so pretty! Nevertheless, I have them now *evil laugh* and I can’t wait for the day I’ll wear them..hopefully!

I've been pretty busy since last week cuz of work(IT), another work (makeup artist) and papers (passport &visa) but thankfully it all worked out ok. I'll be off to US tonight and just excited as ever. Excited to see my lola who's in the hospital right now (main purpose of our visit) and to spend time with my US based relatives for my bday. (just an added perk.hehe..:D) But part of me is a little stressed on the idea... because it was a rush unprepared trip --should be dad's trip only with me just listing pabilis/ note for all of my addiction (aka makeup) orders, but n00oo I'm going too. It only means more spending for me cuz I will actually be the one to go and be trapped at my heavenly places (MAC, MUFE, Sephora), really hard to control myself when my addictions are within my reach..so its really negative cash and worn out CCs! Gaah! But well..this is just again an added perk..i should be happy and just enjoy! Can't wait! And Oh..it will also mean more time for me to blog.:)

Girls are unstable when it comes to beauty products. I mean..me for example, even though I can say that a certain beauty product worked for me, I’m still up for trying different brands. I mean I have no control over my fickle mind and just want to grab everything I can for the promise of a better me, yes even if I still have stocks of tubes/pots used for the same purpose. Maybe it’s just me who buys a lot with no contentment..lol..im -aholic. :P But you know the feeling that after you get through a pot /tube/container you want to try something else..guys are not like that.

The Body Shop conducted an event last Feb 26, 2010 to showcase the Spring Trend Makeup for 2010. I decided not to miss this event as I really want to try their makeup line plus my girls who I’ve not seen for a long time will be there. I tried TBS skin care and makeup products before but I find them average so I seldom visit the store whenever I’m in a mall. Held at Glorietta 3 Makati, it gave opportunity to all beauty bloggers to interact with each other while doing their fave thing: putting on makeup! The activity “Create Your Spring Look using The Body Shop Nature's Colours Collection!” showed the creativity of each participant including me as each created a spring look. I had fun as I was able to use their products and what do you know, I totally love them.

Barbie pink shade lipsticks are IN right now. I'm not usually the girl who falls prey on current trends but with this, I'm going to make an exception. Bright pink = Jamie. Its love. By looking at pictures, reading reviews and listening to friends urge, 2 lipsticks came on top as having the brightest pink shade..nars schiap and mac pink nouveau.

When the beautynomist announced her contest for minute maid fresh look, I already had something in mind. Long before this, I browsed the net for makeup ideas and fell in love with one conveying “fresh”..it was perfect. Though I wasn’t able to submit an entry for the contest –blame it on the busy sched, I like to share with you guys what I had in mind. With a few tweaks here and there, it came out nice but not my idea of fresh. Its still fun though!

Saizen (Daiso in Japan) is a popular Japanese store known by many beauty addicts for the much raved charcoal mask. Don’t confuse yourself with other Japanese stores such as Daiso and Japan Home Center because they are not the same, something I have learned after a few visits from the stores mentioned. Saizen is the largest Japanese store I have seen offering more products and far different from what the other Japanese stores offer. All items are priced at 85 pesos ($1.75 - $2) no matter of the size/weight. First time I went to the place, I got excited and quickly looked for the Beauty section and spent most of the time there - I tell you its not easy to find. Most of the items are low-priced with great quality but I found some (really few small items) that should cost a lot cheaper. Maybe they could have made it 2 for 88 pesos, you think? But considering everything else in the store, its nothing. I could have gotten more stuffs that day but time didn't allow it so I just walked away with the following beauty finds:
