I’m Ready For Summer!

I love summer especially if I get to spend most of it in the beach 🙂

But I think this year’s summer is going to be different. I think most of it will be spent at home due to a lot of reasons — Lexi giving birth to a super duper cute baby, Harper (I’m now a Grandma! So happy!), My Life On Paws (in case you don’t know, I bake human-grade, pet safe and healthy treats for your furry babies. Follow us on Instagram @mylifeonpaws and on Facebook), housewife and wife duties, and a whole lot more!

Despite that, of course, I still know that I’m going to enjoy summer. Why? Because of cute summery things like this pair of happily colored shoes from Pinky Toes 🙂

I have always loved their Stacey design (see previous blog entry here) and I’m still loving it now 🙂

Thanks to Pinky Toes for making me love this year’s summer more! 🙂

Ps. Did I mention that they’re so comfortable???

It’s here! It’s here! Clear skin, here I come!!!

I have been waiting for my Clarisonic Mia 2 Sonic Skin Cleansing System to arrive since December 2012 and finally, IT’S HERE IN MY ARMS.  Tight hugz!

Photo 2-20-13, 4 48 21 PM

I am really so excited to try it out. Since clear skin comes after clean skin, I really hope my Mia 2 will do its job.  It promises to gently remove skin impurities and cleanses 6x (yes, 6x!) better than using your hands alone IN 60 SECONDS!  Oh yeah!  Oh yeah!  The result, softer, smoother and more beautiful skin (what else!?)

So why did I opt to get the Mia 2 over the original Mia?  Well, it comes with a protective travel case.  Yes, I got sold on the Mia 2 because of the travel case.  Haha! I’m really a great example of a perfect consumer :p — then aside from that, it features two speeds with a one-minute pulsing T-Timer® (talk about being lazy to count the seconds myself!  Haha!)

Photo 2-20-13, 4 49 30 PM

What does the kit include?

  • Clarisonic Mia 2
  • Universal Voltage Charger
  • Sensitive Brush Head
  • 1 oz. trial size cleanser
  • Protective travel case (oh yeah!)

Photo 2-20-13, 4 48 48 PM

What other beauty promises come with this Clarisonic Mia 2 Sonic Skin Cleansing System aside from cleaning your skin?  Well, they say that it works with the skin, not against it, as it gently massages away impurities trapped within your pores (ooooh!).  It also prepares the skin for better absorption of creams, serums and moisturizers (this, I gotta see…).  With all these promises, it is still gentle enough to use 2x a day!  Oh my! What more can I ask for? 🙂

I’m currently charging my unit as it is required that you do an initial charge of 24 hours (18  hours for succeeding full charges).  A full charge would last me around 24 minutes.  Which means, if I use it 2x per day, one full charge will last me for 12 days.  Not bad…  I just hope I remember to charge at the end of the 12th day.  Haha!

And look at how cute the pLink charge is!  It magnetically attaches to the handle!

Photo 2-20-13, 4 48 54 PM

Oh!  Did I mention that these Clarisonic units are safe to use inside the shower? 🙂 🙂 🙂

They’re really simple to use.  As instructed, use on forehead (20 seconds), nose/chin (20 seconds), and both cheeks (10 seconds each). Our T-Timer® will pulse when it’s time to cleanse the next area of your face.  How convenient is that?

Now, to wait for my unit to get fully charged.  I’ll blog on how it goes! 🙂

How about you?  Have you tried using a Clarisonic Cleansing System?  How was your experience on it?  Let me know!

Ps. Since it is recommended that the brush head be replaced every 3 months, I already decided to get a replacement head as early as now — and since I’ll be using up at least 4 brush heads in a year, I think I should get more as early as now (yes, I’m a hoarder, haha!)

Color, Comfort and Care… WHY NOT!

I just came across this and I’m quite curious about it!  It is the Wet N Wild Mega Shield Lip Color with SPF 15.

It promises COLOR (I’m sure, every girl is very picky about this when it comes to lipstick. The longer it stays, the better!), COMFORT (not even a question! haha!) and CARE (DEFINITELY! I pay extra attention to my lips. I really make sure they’re not dry at any time! I hate it when my lips chap, especially when it is brought about by lipstick! Aaack!).

This product promises to deliver hours of sheer-to-moderate coverage that glides on buttery-soft for a smooth, moist-looking pout. Lips are pampered with Vitamin E, Amino Acids, Avocado Oil, and Rice Bran Oil that moisturize and condition for silky, soft comfort. And with SPF 15, lips are cared for and protected from harmful UVB rays.

Oooooh… interesting!  I can’t wait to get my hands on them!  Gotta try them out! 🙂

Product Review : Flormar Supershine Nail Enamel

If you’ve been reading my blog regularly, you would know by now that I’m quite addicted with nail polish. I think I have more nail polish bottles than the lady who comes to my house for my nail pampering sessions.  Haha!

So when my Dec-Jan BDJ box came with a full sized nail enamel, I was so happy!  Again, this is the first time for me to try out the brand and based on my research,

(verbatim) Flormar, born in 1970’s in the city  of Milan of Italy,  carried all its production to Turkey in 1972’s starting a 40 years of adventure.  By increasing its success which was  gained with the nail polish it entered the market; Flormar has become an  irrevocable brand in women of Turkey’s  nail polish choice. Taking its success a step forward after a short time  beginning to operate in Turkey, Flormar   started to offer its product range from blush to foundation, eye shadow  to mascara, lip stick to nail polish with high quality and budget prices to its  consumers.

Okay, now for the test… 😀 😀 😀

Based on what’s written on their site, their Supershine Nail Enamel gives extra/intensive shine and provides an easy application because of its creamy texture. It also promises long wearability.  Let’s see…

In the photo below, I applied 2 coats of Flormal Nail Enamel.  No top coat applied.

Application : 2 coats of Flormar Nail Enamel; No Top Coat

Application : 2 coats of Flormar Nail Enamel; No Top Coat

In the photo below, top coat has been applied 🙂

Flormar Nail Enamel, Red, 321

My verdict : I so loooove this nail polish!

Pros:

1. I love the consistency of the nail polish.  Not too thick, not too watery.  It was just right for an easy application.

2. Opacity.  AMAZING!  I really needed just one coat to full cover my nails (but I still applied 2 coats just because that’s what I’m used to, haha!)

3. Shine.  It wasn’t really shiny but it does have a little shine to it.  It was totally OK for me as I always use a top coat to seal off my nail polish application 🙂

4. My nails lasted for a good 7 days!  Yes!  Believe me!  At the end of the 7th day, all my nails were all still properly covered with nail polish, except for the usual nail growth on the ends and a slight chip on my thumbnail (which was caused by a hard peanut I tried to crack, haha!)

5. Since I got a red nail polish and dark nail polishes tend to leave your nails “yellowish”, I was quite expecting that to happen after I remove them, but amazingly, my nails didn’t turn yellow AT ALL!

6. AND LAST, BUT NOT THE LEAST, how could you ever go wrong with a nail polish this great for only P99!?!?

Cons:

NONE 🙂

Ps. Top and Base Coat used, Orly 🙂

012713 What I Wore : Hotel Living Part 2 ;)

Well, this is a continuation of my post yesterday

We went down for breakfast at HEAT at exactly 7am as we heard that the hotel is fully booked. So, to avoid the crowd, we decided to get up early for breakfast.

I really love hotel breakfasts. I don’t know why but I just do. Maybe it’s the thought of being able to pick the food which would match my mood as I get up or something. 🙂

Bacon, hungarian sausages, waffles with cream and maple syrup, hash browns with horseradish and dijon mustard, toasted wheat bread with butter plus coffee, how can you say no to that?!? 🙂

Anyway, I knew I was going to have a relaxing night so this is what I packed and wore… perfect for a laid back Sunday 🙂

Mickey Mouse sweatshirt – H&M (I’m currently addicted to Mickey Mouse apparel)
Floral Lace Coral skirt – Forever21
Wedge Sneakers – Topshop
Accessories – Pandora

Kudos to me, I packed light for this overnight stay and settled for just wearing the same pair of shoes. Bow! Haha!
