NYX loots...

I still remember the first time I ordered NYX Cosmetics was from Cherry Culture when they still ship to the Philippines. Shipping's quite high and it usually takes 2-3 weeks before I get hold of my loots. That was back in the days when there's a few (or none at all) reputable and trusted local online sellers. Now, I only have to wait for a week (depends on the items ordered) and I'll be saying hello to my new toys.

The following items I got a week after I placed my orders:

Makeup Artist Box

This palette is LOVE... I got this for my sister who's beginning to use makeup for school. I believe this is a good palette for those who are just beginning to explore makeup.
Php 1700.00

One Night in Morocco Matte Smokey Look palette

yeah, you got it right. This one's MINE! :)

just the right size to fit in my makeup kit
Php 900

and this one, is my favorite among the items I ordered:

Carry All Beauty Bag

lot of room to put makeup, toiletries and what-nots!

it can even store some brushes...kewl!

now, I won't have to bring separate bags of my beauty paraphernalia... ^_^

I must say that I am one happy makeup junkie with my NYX loot. I am still lemming on their other products, but that would have to wait...for another week! kiddin' hehehh

If you'd like to get these items as well or if there are other NYX items you'd like to order, click here. She's one approachable and trusted local online seller of NYX. She's opening her batch 11 soon, so check her out!

Blogging in Style...

For almost a year, I've been contemplating on getting a netbook I can do my blogging, surfing and what-nots anywhere. I have a laptop that's has been with me for almost 3yrs and another laptop that X gave to me before he left for abroad. I love those two laptops but they are a bit heavy and bulk to be brought outside the house.

Last month, I started checking out netbooks trying to find something that would suit my needs. I need something that's portable, easy to use and well, CUTE. I haven't been updating my blog that much for quite a while now because of my job, but I figured that I can do a bit of blogging during office breaks. Of course, using the company's resources for personal use is a big yeah, I need a netbook that I can bring practically almost anywhere.

I've checked a few brands but had a hard time deciding what to get. Until last week, I found "The One."

the box reminds me of a jewelry box

HP Mini 210-1099SE Vivienne Tam Butterfly Lovers edition

it was definitely Love-At-First- Sight

I heart its classy champagne gold color.

I initially asked for an HP mini in pink, but I realized that i might be too old for that hahaha...they told me that they something that would suit my personality more, and handed me this pretty little thing.

I love, love my new baby. Hopefully, I'll be back to my usual blogging practice in the days to come.

I was told days ago that this netbook happens to be Samantha's netbook in Sex and the City 2. I am loving this baby more.

I tend to shy away from painting my nails with teal-ish shades since I'm afraid the color would make my hands look a bit darker. When Sol handed over some nail polishes for me to try, I was actually surprised to see this shade, I actually intended to hand this back to Sol without swatching it...but good thing that I didn't.

to my surprise, it did make my hands look a bit lighter. i find the shade so pretty that I painted my nails on both feet and hands with it.

the shade color actually makes me feel like a bad ass chick...LOL!
