I can’t believe this year’s holiday season is already done and dusted! I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas last Monday ❤️ Christmas is really big here in the Philippines. In our culture, the main celebration happens on Christmas Eve so that’s when I wore this look. Normally the 24th is spent by going to church and then waiting up until 12am to open presents and eat our “Noche Buena” or midnight feast. So yes, I beat my face and wore a designer dress just to stay at home haha. I saw this meme on Facebook and I just thought it was so apt 😅

SUGAR PLUM MAKEUP LOOK

SUGAR PLUM MAKEUP LOOK

Plum

Am I the only one still not feeling the Christmas-ness yet?!?!?! 😟 In attempts to get the ~festive vibes~ rolling, I did an icy little lavender look a la Sugar Plum Fairy from the Nutcracker. Plus, apparently “Ultraviolet” is Pantone’s 2018 Colour of the Year – any thoughts on this? I honestly found myself slowly getting more and more into purple in the last month, even before they announced it! I guess those trend forecasters behind it really know what they’re doing haha.

Ahh hello!!! It has been soooo long since I’ve been able to blog regularly and I really missed it 😭  Life’s been hectic basically ever since NZFW because I started a job at Zara right after (which was stressful af) and then Uni requirements caught up with me and I was basically dying until my last exam 😅 But now I’m currently on my summer vacation which I am spending back home in Manila, so we are back to our regular programming!

I have some stories to share about the last few weeks that I’ll post about soon, plus I promise to keep you updated on all the cool things that will go down in the upcoming weeks!!

It had been soo long since I bought myself some make new makeup (especially compared to last year when I would get something new to play with almost every one or two weeks), so I thought that since we’re transitioning into the warmer months now, it would be a good time to make an order at Colourpop and try out some of the many new products they’ve been coming out with recently.

MY MAKEUP EVOLUTION

MY MAKEUP EVOLUTION

I’ve always had a fascination for makeup even as a child. My addiction, however, started a little over 2 years ago. It all began with Maybelline everything, most especially their BB cream and one particular lip liner that was practically just a nub when I permanently “borrowed” it from my mother.

MAUVE-ULOUS MAKEUP

I am digging the mauve makeup trend! I must admit I’ve been going without makeup way longer than I’d like to (my skin is so sensitive rn) but I got so inspired by these mauve looks I saw on Glosserie and Allure! I’ve always been a huge fan of mauve so it’s pretty cool to get new ideas on how to wear this subtly striking shade.
