Make-up Practise

After finishing my make-up gig, I thought of doing some make-up of my own. It is different when you put make-up to a client and when you do it to your own face. That is why you will come across make-up schools offering separate trainings for professional and personal make-up.

So unlike how I do it to a client, I started with my eyes. Using MAC 6Devil May Dare Warm Eye Shadows I did two different eye looks. I just played around the colors and came up with…



I’m not gonna emphasize on the names of the shades.  I hope you can see that one side is a combination of gold and dark brown. The other side is of rose and dark blue that turned to blue violet. Next, I put on some liquid foundation by Revlon. What I have is one of those photoready kinds. Then I just glided on some red lipcolor.

So which side do you think is better?

Dear Digital Camera

 I hope my beloved digital camera Canon IXUS 80 IS didn’t get lost.  Sadness shall envelope me once this unfortunate event is confirmed.  The husband took it to show his twin brother his HongKong trip photos.  But for some reason he said he wasn’t able to show them to him and has now completely forgotten where the camera is.  The only thing he can remember now is that he was the last one who took it from our room.

I bought my camera sometime 2008 when I was in Baguio for one of our company’s events. I knew that being there would be a memorable one so since I didn’t have a camera of my own, I sort of forced myself to swipe my credit card for this wonderful purchase.  It was a great buy for since then this camera has been taking pictures of my travels and adventures, as well as memorable events and happenings in my life.  This camera of mine has taken pictures of important people and things that amaze and inspire me.  It has somehow become my “IT” gadget more than my cellphone and laptop.  One of my decisions to get back into blog writing is this camera also.  Where else to store and document priceless memories than blogsites, right?

But unfortunate happens to even the most giving people.  So, I hope the husband can still remember and find it soon.

Reviving Blogging

So it has been so long since I last posted something here.  Is a few weeks so long already?  Well in the blog world I think it is, hehehe.

Anyway, I missed blogging.  Not that I’ve been a heavy blogger, but the therapeutic effect it has on me is what I missed and longed for.  Somehow blogging makes me feel like I’m a writer or columnist.  It kinda calms me and sort of organizes my mind.  It helps me plan and think creatively.  I hope I’m not sounding weird here, but that’s how blogging works for me.


This is me now after giving birth and sleepless nights 🙂

Time is also an issue here.  A lot of things had happened over the last couple of months and I have failed to document each one of them.  They are stories that could make you laugh, think and even intrigue you.  Time could just swiftly pass you by without you realizing that the momentum of telling your story is already gone.  I have lots of thoughts and opinions about different issues and topics that I’d wanna share the blog world, but then I’ve terribly missed to do it spot on.  But now with all the resources that I have, I think I have no more excuses.  It is indeed time to revive my blog writing.  There is such a thing called “time management”, so I should start learning that being now I have so much on my plate: day job, make-up sideline, kids, etc…

I have lots of stories and I think I have a ton of photos stuck in my phone and digicam, which I have already forgotten what to write about them. I shall try my best to remember 🙂  So we are gonna do this one photo at a time.

One more thing.  I have a lot of blog sites.  Is four considered a lot?  I don’t know if that is wise though, but I’ve tried to decide on which one to keep and which one to delete.  Guess what?  I still haven’t made up my mind, hehehe.  Also, I have been planning on having a schedule for my blogging, since I have several sites to keep.  However, laziness most of the time corrupts me.  So forgive me for being like that.  I will try my best to beat that evil.

I’ve got so many plans for my blog sites that I’m very much excited to do!  So many stories to tell, so many photos to share!  I won’t pressure my self anymore.  What’s important is that I share them to you.  So I hope you keep on checking out my page!  Read on!
