NOTD (from way back): Ombre and Pastels

I realized I only got to post this on Instagram. It's from waaaay back, like early last year, but it's too pretty not to share here!

If you've been following this blog for a long time now, you'd know that gradient/ombre-ing is one of my favorite nail art techniques! And probably the only nail art technique I'm good at. Haha.

For this design, I used all four shades from the (then-new) GirlStuff Bloggers Elite nail polish collection.

Haul: My First From ColourPop


Hahaha I'm just excited to share with you guys my latest beauty haul! I got swallowed by the liquid lipstick craze and decided to try out some from a brand that I'd been hearing about lately - ColourPop! 

ColourPop is not available in the Philippines yet, so I pre-ordered mine through Great Makeup Sale on Facebook.


For my first ColourPop haul, I decided to get only liquid lipsticks, but next time I'm def gonna check out their Lippie Stix, highlighters and other stuff. (YES, GUYS, I SAID HIGHLIGHTERS. Who knew this day would come?!)

Anyway, back to ma' haul.

You're Invited: BDJ Fair 2016 - Rise Above the Waves + GIVEAWAY

It's that time of the year again! The 2016 BDJ Fair is coming up soon, and I, for one, am very excited to check out the 2017 planners!

What's the BDJ Fair? Well, it's an annual fund-raising event by Belle de Jour where Bellas not only get to check out the next edition of BDJ planners, but have lots of fun and learn through the many booths, activities, workshops and talks they have there. I went to my first ever BDJ Fair four years ago with my sister and even wrote about my experience *here.* My sister went wall-climbing there for the first time hahaha. Oooh, and that's where I bought my first ever BDJ planner too!
