(lame post title, i know!)

Who says you can't wear blue at work?  Definitely not me!   You just have to learn how to subtly apply the color so it won't come off too strong.  I've been wearing a lot of blues lately and have been pairing it with baby pink cheeks and glossy lips.

NYX HD eyebase
MAC e/s in Jest, Freshwater and Black Tied
Starry gel eyeliner in Midnight Sky
Prestige white eyeliner
Majolica Majorca Lash King Mascara

I'm again into blue eyeliners...and currently loving my Starry gel liner in Midnight Sky. 

Kanebo Freshel-C makeup base
Tonymoly Snail BB cream
Benefit Boe-ing concealer
Clinique Dermawhite-C  powder foundation
Bobbi Brown blush in Peony

Estee Lauder lipgloss
(forgot what shade!)

I have been wearing colors again lately.  Maybe I got tired of my usual  neutrals.  Funny thing is, my colleagues seem to prefer colors on me now.  They say i look different, or even gloomy whenever I'm not wearing colorful eye shadows.  


How about you, do you wear colorful eye shadows?  It's summer anyways, it's the time for "happy" colors!  But then again, emphasize one feature like your eyes and downplay the rest.

Do you love Parisian?

I do.  

Ever since I discovered how affordable the brand is, it has always been my go-to brand whenever I have an event or occasion where I need a new bag or pair of shoes.  Let's face it, it's not everyday that we can afford those with higher price tags and sometimes we just need new ones to perfectly match a new outfit or just-because-we-want-to-shop.  What's even better with  the brand is that, though affordable, they obviously don't sacrifice quality.  So yeah,  Parisian shoes and bags are affordable, stylish and of good quality.  

What more can we ask for?

I already have a few pairs of shoes from Parisian, but let me just show you what I recently got from them as gifts during our Parisian Blogger Pictorial event:

This is the pair I wore during the shoot.  I love its color, very summer-y!  Heels are approx. 4-5inches but they are still comfy.  

By the way, I just want to say thank you for all those who have voted for me in the Blogger Contest for Parisian.  I am very far from winning but to be given a chance to be a part of the event is more than enough for me.  And of course, to get votes from you is something I am also thankful for.  So again, thank you very much!

Here's another pair I got.  For the shoot, we were asked to choose 2 pairs that we would like to use.  I also chose this one because I've always wanted to get a pair of wedges in this color.  It does help my legs look longer, which I love!

Did you see the shoe box?  It looks classy, no?  Actually, it looks a lot better than those of some high-end brands.  

During the shoot, we were asked to choose a bag that we would like to use.  I didn't know that we can get to take it home as well.  Yes, Parisian had been so generous to us.  

my (colorful) doctor's bag

 And here's my most favorite of all:

foldable ballet flats!

cute flower details

I usually bring this pair when I am wearing killer heels.  I just take this out of its equally cute pouch whenever I feel like my feet is already dying, LOL!  I love that I don't have to end up wearing my HAVS if  I need to give my feet some rest from all the walking with high heels.  

It's my first pair of foldable flats and I am totally loving it. I wonder if they have this is pink?

How about you, have you tried getting something from Parisian?  
Lemme know!
