Nail on the Go : How to Apply Fake Nails

I love doing my nails but I just don't have that much time to sit around and do it unlike before. So I would usually just go out with clean but bare nail. Last Christmas, my friend gave me these fake nails as a gift. You could find a lot of these in stores even in Hortaleza but if you like something with more intricate designs, you can visit the Beauty Bar although it is much pricey. If you plan in buying the expensive kind, it's fine since you can still use it again.

1. The box have 12 sets of nails with different sizes that may or may not fit your nails. So the first thing you have to do is find the size that fits you. If it doesn't fit, get a nail nipper and cut it on the sides or the bottom following the shape.

2. Then get the nail glue and apply it at the back of the fake nail.

3. Attach the fake nails and press it against your nail.

And that's it, you're ready to go. You have to find a really good nail glue for this one 'cause you don't want it coming off. You might also want to cut it shorter since it is difficult holding anything with extra long nails specially texting. ^_^

Review : #ChoosetoSHINE with Pantene and BDJ Box

After I came home from work, I saw a package lying on my bed. I was kind of excited because I thought it's the brush set that I ordered but when I saw what's in it, I got a little confused. Its the Pantene Pro V kit from BDJ. Then I checked my email and finally figured out what it was for. It's a gift from BDJ for those who joined last December (lucky me... ^_^)

The kit have two full size hair products. One is an after shampoo conditioner and the other is a leave on conditioner. The product is meant to make your hair strong, healthy and shiny. This really is a great gift for me since I just had my hair treated and colored last December.

The first conditioner is nothing unusual. Except that you have to leave it on for 5 minutes before rinsing it. I've only been using it for a week so I didn't really notice much difference.

Review : Catena Foaming Bath and Softening Body Lotion

We had a party on the last day of school and of course, an exchange gift. We made a wish list and I asked for something I can use to pamper myself with. The budget is only P100 so I honestly didn't hope for anything so nice. Then again, I guess she's a good shopper and got me something I'd like to use. She gave me a foaming bath and body lotion set.

The foaming bath gel says "Excellent moisturizer that melts at body temperature leaving the skin soft and smooth." I can't read the back label since it's all written in characters but it does a good job. It's kindda weird when I first smell it but if you love the scent of real fresh rose, you'll love this one. The scent doesn't really stay long but it'll give that relaxing feeling while taking a bath

For an extended rose aroma therapy you can use the body lotion. The scent last longer than the bath gel but really light. It lathers smoothly on my skin. It feels so moisturizing without the sticky or oily feeling and it dries fast.

I saw another set at Japan Home Centre and I'm thinking on trying it out, too. One is in Lavender and the other is cherry blossom. I'm not much of a fan when it comes to floral scents but this one is really worth trying if you ask me. Maybe because the scent isn't that strong.

My First : Celine Bag

I already mentioned in my previous post that I have wanted to buy myself a Celine bag but I couldn’t because of the price and my budget. I love Celine clothes and shoes but I only buy them when they’re on sale unless I really like or need it. But I couldn’t do the same thing with the bags. Knowing myself, I personally need a bag that would fit anything and I could toss anywhere without feeling bad about it, the very reason why it’s difficult for me to get an expensive one. It’s quite pricey even when it’s on sale and the designs are not really meant for daily use. Oh well, I don't have to worry about it now, do I?

My cousin got me an off-white colored one with gold zipper details on the side. The bag has three small pockets, one on the front with a loop kind or lock. It also has one at the back and inside with two extra pockets for the phone.

Year End Haul (Shoes, bags, accessories and other random stuff)

Happy New Year to all my readers. Another year have passed and I didn't really made this year as promised so I won't be making another blogging resolution that I would most likely break. I feel really sorry for that. After the operation, I had a change of occupation and started taking my Masters in Management making me busier than I used to.

This year, I'd like to start my blog with a haul of some of the things I purchased and received as gifts. Just a disclaimer, this post is in no way intended to brag about what I have. And the stuffs are things that I accumulated over some time and some were given as presents . Let's just say, this is my way of thanking everyone for all the presents they gave me and keeping track of my purchases.

The only time that I love to buy shoes without regret is during a sale. I went to Ayala for some Christmas shopping and I found a really great deal at Call It Spring. Originally, the leather and lace shoes cost Php2,195 each but I only got it for Php650 per pair. They're really comfortable and I so love wearing them specially the leather shoes. It's currently my go-to shoes. I'm kind of more careful when using the lace one though because I don't want it getting stained. It's really going to be perfect for spring until summer because of the color. The rubber shoes would be my parent's gift for me. The color is just so pretty and girly but the tough kind of girly. :p

The next would be a bag from Celine and an inspirational book that my cousin gave me as a Christmas present. Honestly, I just got it today. I wanted to buy a Celine bag for myself but I'm having second thoughts about it because I'm really getting off my holiday budget but I guess now I don't have to worry about it.
