Long time No see

It seems forever since I wrote a blog. I have been so busy in makeup
school and too lazy when I come home to write a blog. But I do love
to read them and still do. So what's new? I'm in beauty school and I
love it! I enjoy doing hair, pedicure, manicure, waxing, and etc.
Best of all I love my teachers and my classmates (the one that I
am friend with or talk to). Everyday is something new, nothing
ever gets boring, there's always something going on everyday.
New gossip and new drama. Typical events that happen when u're
surrounded by all these girls. There's gotta be some drama. But me
and the people that I am with, we're more mature and we're there
to learn and get out of school, as soon as possible. I'm more of a
quiet type and shy person. If I don't know you I won't talk to you but
if I will reply back to you if you asked me a question. When I do know
you, I will talk to you more.
Next, I have decided that I'm going to start doing hair tutorial or
hair ideas on this blog. Since I am not in makeup school yet but
I am in cosmetology school and I'm so fascinated by it that I love
to share my ideas, tricks and style to all of you who loves hair but
sometime feel the lack of inspiration and lost, which keeps you from
doing different things to your hair.
Last, of all I finally came to conclusion that MAC foundation breaks
me out. I mean I have known it since the beginning but I don't know
why I kept using it. I guess I was too desperate. Well, sometime it makes
my skin look flawless but it always leave me with one or two pimples. But
this time, I'm breaking out like crazy like I have never gone through this
stage before in my entire life. Yes, I know it seem unbelieveable but I have
never broke out, not even one pimple, throughout my whole entire life until
I started wearing foundation. I'm still unsure because it might be MAC but
it might also be the Marie Borlind night and day cream I'm using. Ever since
I started using that, I have acne all over my forehead and chin. Before when
I was using clinique moisturizer under my MAC foundation, I have never broke
out this crazy. So I am undecided what to do because I really don't want to send
back my MAC foundation. I LOVE MAC! Well that's it for now, look out for hair
ideas and haul in my next blog post.

Beauty School

Yay, me! I feel like London Tipton. Hahahah...j/k but I am in beauty school right now. So far it's boring but very exciting! Yesterday, was snow day and only 7 people showed up at school. Today, there was many of us there with 10 people missing.

The first thing we did was open up our kit, make sure everything was there and engraved our names on it. Then we got to play with our mannequin and we started braiding hair. We did the invorted braid, outvorted and fishtail braid. It was fun and new at the same time. Boy, did I learn that braid hair regularly is not as stressing as braiding hair professionaly!

Tomorrow, is another day. I can't believe that the first week of school is already half way through. I'm not sure what we are going to do but I know I'm excited and can't wait. That's it for now and maybe I'll bring my camera to school and take a picture of my kit.

In and Out, Project 10 Pan

To summarize everything, I have started my project 10 pan
a few weeks ago. Meaning that some of my pack up items
are now open and ready to be use.
Other then that I wanted to share my creative side
of me with you of you guys. While working on this project
brought back so many memories from the old days. The
days when I was still in junior high where I would get compliment
on my creativity. I feel that I have lost that part of me these 3-4

As you can see I love love this cardagin from Old Navy.
I have it for a couple of years now and it's still in great
shape and condition. I love it it so much and adore it. When
I shop for a cardagin I feel that nothing quite fit this one.
This cardagin seems to be plain and ugly but when you
have it on, it's a whole different story. That was how it started
and after the dressing room, it was love! This cardagin seem
to match every single outfit and what ever you're wearing.
Whether it's tank top, blouse, party dress or evening dress
this is my go to cardagin. It just makes everything looks so
fit and right...perfect is the word to describe it! The only thing
I hated about it the last year was that there use to be beads and
those plastic gems on it and it was coming apart and didn't look
pretty anymore.

So I somehow was buying tons of clothes and got a shirt that
was missing a jewel. So I went to all my local craft store and
they didn't have the size for that jewel there. A few days later
I thought to myself, hmmm....why didn't I think of it in the first place.
Then that was when I got the idea of taking the rest of the beads and
gems off and went out and bought these white crystal jewels, instead.
This is the before picture, I knew i should have taken a photo of how
it originally looked like before putting these jewels on but i forgot.
I will show the after photo in a different blog.

Project 10 Pan
Finally it's gone. I bought this brush cleaner at CVS and
it's from essence of beauty. Overall, it's an okay product.
It does get some of the products out but yet, I still have
to use baby shampoo afterward to really deep clean my
brushes. I kind of hate the smell of it, don't remember how
it smells like but I didn't like it. It's not a smell that will
make your nose sneeze right away but it was just something
about it that I didn't like it. But I did love love the packaging and
how easy it was to squirt the product out right into the brush.
Some packaging sucks because they are great product but no spray
cap *hint, hint* MAC! LOL! While others have either great or
not great at all product but yet their squirt spray sucks! Doesn't
properly work! Overall, it's good for the price, you get your money
worth of it and packaging great!

Since the essence of beauty brush cleaner is out
my MAC brush cleaner are in. Bought this thing
months ago but haven't used it and tested it out.
Total FOB! I was just saving it for the
special moment but hey, what is the special moment?
Well now seem to be like the special moment.
I 'm going to see if this is as good as everyone
has been raving about. I also got a really good
deal for it so I'm lovin' it. That's pretty much it for

Collective Haul *heavy photos*

This is a collective haul from F21 to Charlotte Russe, to
Target,,, Walgreen and all
those goody store. It's been a long week and can't remember
all the store names. But let's start with all the good stuff....
I have always been very curious about this teeth whitening
from Sephora. I've read reviews about it and how it does
work for many people. Some even claim that it's the best
seller for teeth whitening but wasn't so sure of it because
it could have been advertising for all I know.

I'm on a mission to get whiter teeth. I have always been but
hated going in to the dentist and having them do the lazer treatment.
I hate how my teeth got so sensitive to it and it cost around $300 bucks,
for each time you went in. The review seem to make it sound like,if you
keep using it you'll see difference in your teeth. So I hope to give this a
try and see how I feel about it. FYI I hate the crest white stripe. And
is it just me or what? No matter what whitening product I use, I seem
to always have so much saliva in my mouth but if I spit it out it seems
as if I'm spitting out the whitening product...ugh!

I got the gel that you're suppose to use after brushing your teeth.
I just got it in the mail today and just tried it on. It's more like a
liquid in these tiny tubes and you're suppose to squeeze it and then
apply it to your teeth directly.

I got the AM and PM toothpaste because I have been dying
and on the search for a toothpaste that will actually whiten
your teeth. I have been using crest with whitening scope and
for the past six month I have seen a difference. But for the last
year, that I have started using it I have seen a big big difference
in my tooth shade. Beside I read review on these two product on
sephora and it seems to be a magical product. So we'll have to see
the results.

Does this look familiar? I was on the hunt for a really
good heated eyelash curler and out of all the one, this
product got really lucky. Thanks to eki and reading the
reviews on this product, it really made me more curious
to try it out. I did a smokey Kim K look today and was
going to try this heated eyelash curler out but I forgot
to buy batteries while I was at Walmart. *sigh* I'll have
to test it out tomorrow for sure!

Guess who....
Hahahah..yep! It's Hannah Montana. I'm not a fan but
I do dig the long hair with the front bangs. It was also
on sale for $6 bucks so I thought why not buy it? I love
this style of haircut and will probably be getting my haircut
to something similiar to this. I tried it on and as always, I
don't look good in blonde. No matter if it's a light or medium
blonde, I just don't look right. My face is too asian skin tone
for it....I'll take a picture tomorrow and show you guys what
I mean by it.

I just love the look of this reminds me of madam moiselle. Let's
see if you can read the back. I thought it was kind of cool and
neat that they had this on a safety pin and pin it with the clothing
from forever 21 twist.

I love love this hat and it's my new favorite one!
I adore it and when you curl your hair and wear
this hat, it's super chic!

These are the two hat I got from F21.

The big silver/charcoal bow. I didn't think the bow was this
big but it's super duper BIG! I quite don't know how I feel
about this headband because it seem to oversized my head
when I put it on. But I love the bow and was looking for a bigger
bow but didn't expect it to be this big. I will wear this when I
want to be a "hime gyrau." LOL!

And here is a variety of clothes from Charlotte Russe, F21,
Rue 21, TJ Maxx, Old navy, Macy, Express, Maurices,
ModaExpress, etc. I didn't have the time and didn't think
it was necessary to hang each clothes and show each item.

I have been wanting to try this next product for the longest
time. I don't know why but I do collect mascara as well as
many other things. But I wanted to test out this mascara because
it was suppose to be compare to the higher end "Givenchy"
Tooo--da! Not digging the red color but somehow it looks
good with black. Of course, anything looks good with black.
I can't give my thoughts and overall for this product yet because
I have been using it for the last 2 weeks but I'm still unsure. I'm
going to play with it some more as I have been slacking off with it
a little. I have been using it constantly for the bottom lashes but
not for the top lashes. As I find it a bit difficult to coat your top
lashes with but I have just begun starting this past weekend and
I seem to be getting the hang of it.

This is how the wand looks like. It's super tiny and I love
it for my lower lash line! It gets every single lashes and coat
them and make them stand out. I really love this wand for
the bottom lashes. I can't seem to get the result I do from this
mascara to any other mascara I have tried....for the bottom lashes.

Forgot this braclet....I got it at a random store and I thought
it would look nice with my square and circle *bling* earrings.

Here's the studio tool smudger brush. I own two
other studio tool brush and I seem to like them.
I was passing by and saw this one. I thought it would
be a nice 2 in 1 brush. A smudger brush and a smaller
flat shader brush. Smaller meaning smaller then my
MAC 139.

I don't know why I pass out on this brush or it was probably
just release. But I love how the bristle are almost one length,
curves at the top and flat. Perfect for a fraction of
the price!

Love Love Love
I don't love the trash but I love HELLO KITTY!
The thought of HK and trash can is not cute at
all. But I saw this once while in Target and I fell
madly in love with it. It was just super cute and
girly! Gotta have it!

More Details on this trash can.....hahah...if it
really is a trash can.
Love the details and decorating. Super kawaii!

Here's little miss Kitty walking her dog...which
happens to be a poodle.

Look at the mode pad. It's funny because I swear I just
now notice that it looks exactly like my little princess's
pink mode pad bike. Hahahah...I gotta tease her about this.

OMG! What is that?
I love this hello kitty Eiffel tower! It's a toothbrush
holder but I'm just going to use it as a display for my

Here's a closer view at the other side of the tower.
At the moment I'm in love with Paris and the thought
of HK and Paris together equals LOVE!

Guess Who? Who Me? Yes You!
Hehehe...the love of my life. Nah...but I do love
her alot, maybe half the love of my little princess.
At first I thought this was a soap dispenser but when
I got home I read the bottom tag of it and it said a lotion
dispenser. Well what do you know? It's perfect for my
japanese cherry blossom lotion! Love that smell but it's
even better if it's with hello kitty!

Look at little miss " Pretty Please!"
Hehehhe..I just now realize that she was give me
that puppy face and was saying " buy me please,
take me home." I swear that's how me and my little
princess got so addicted to her and had to bring her
home with us.

Nahhh..slippers. Needed new one and hello
kitty ones happen to be it. PS I love them,
they are so soft and comfortable. I didn't
wear them until a week later because I was
afraid of getting them dirty. But hey, what the heck
I bought them for a reason. It's pink so obviously it'll
be more likely to get dirtier easily. So far, so good,
there's a little bit of stain here and there but only
noticeable when you look closely.

I bought the towel because I love pink, was in need of a new towe
and I love Hello Kitty!

Here's a closer look at the detail on the towel.

I didn't buy these kitty stuff although we all know
how much love I have for hello kitty. These were
choosen and pick by my little princess. She wanted
them and they were in the one dollar aisle. Incase
you're wondering that cell phone is a play cellphone
but under neath it, it has 3 lipglosses. And that HK
doll is not a key chain it's actually a bookbag key chain.

I never cared for it and paid attention. But at the
last minute when I went in to enroll in beauty school.
I found out that that bookbag chain would be perfect
for my bookbag. Sorry, princess but I have to borrow
it and i promise to return it. As for the gloss, my little
princess seem to love that stuff and can't get enough of it!
Glad she liked it because it was well worth the buck!

Nails Nails
Don't know why I got more nail polishes. I am planning to get
a nail rack and had to count my nail polishes and guess how many
I had? I couldn't believe it myself but I had over 130 polishes. Ugh*
But somehow I couldn't resist the sale, it was buy one get one free.
Or maybe I'm just a shopaholic who seems to want everything and
gotta have everything.

earings I got at F21

The two necklace I got from F21, which I
adore them to death! Love it! Looks really
casual and nice! Very simple but it stands out!

Hahah...I just notice it two days ago when I tried the Eiffel
tower necklace on that one of the crystal was missing. I thought
maybe I was the cause of it but now looking back at these photo
it was already gone, in the first place. Urgh! I love it but hate how
it's missing a crystal. I gotta always have it perfect or precisely
otherwise it bugs me. I want to complain and get an exchange but
hey...what can you do. I might end up buying another necklace
but don't feel like wasting $$. But it really does look nice until you
actually notice something is missing...guess what it is?

Random earring at random store.

My Konad nail art special polish! From black to left:
black, yellow, green, royal purple, gold, red, blue,
white, pastel pink.
*royal purple is a true dark purple, almost black but if you
look closely it's a true dark purple. Reminds me of OPI nail
polish Linkin' Park. Note: these are not regular nail polish nor
are you suppose to appaly them to your nails like regualr polish.
These are for the disk and for special nail art work only.

*if you want to find out more, you can research about them.
But this is it for now. Have you guys been stocking up on things
or been hauling a lot lately? Somehow I don't know if I'm in the
spirit of X-mas or the holiday but I seem to be a shopping alot.
It's seems pretty addicting and I'm trying to stop myself from
getting so many things.
Ugh....I'm on project 10 pan but seems like miy shopaholic
is taking over me. But I didn't do a lot of makeup haul which
is great because saving that for later. I will admit that I'm a little
bit back on wanting to haul for more makeup. But I have to stop
myself because enough is enough and when it's not necessary, it's
gotta go!

Tres Paris *heavy photos*

I have been dying to get my hands on this collection by Forever 21 and
it has finally arrived! I made my purchase right when I got the email
about this collection. I normally don't shop at Forever 21 except for there
accessories and dresses. Every time when I'm there, I feel like there's so
much to choose from and it makes me feel overwhelm, that's why I hate,
no I mean dislike shopping there.
But lately now I have been so addicted to that store and I just wanted
to share with you guys some of the outfits from this collection. I think
it's so super cute and chic!

FYI all photos courtesy of

I was going to get the leg warmer but I'm unsure of the
flowers, I feel that it's not that cute as it may seem.
But I do love the bow on the short, it's cute!

I love her bangs! Hahahah..that was lame but
I have to admit I'm loving that style of bang! I
love her tight sock. When you look through all
the photos you may notice that you see her wearing
this tight sock over and over. You'll seriously agree
with me that the way she paired it up with her outfits
are super duper cute!

Nothing much to say about this outfit except
the hat is okay but always and forever, digging
the knee high sock.

I love this whole outfit! It's super Paris, here I come!
Hehehe...but I love the knee high sock with the bow.
I regret not getting knee high sock with bow, in the last
two years. I haven't seen this style anywhere but I
won't stop here, I will continue searching for the knee
high sock with a bow.
Another thing about this outfit is the shirt. If you can read it, it says
"tres chic" with a rose or flower attach to the shirt. This shirt is
pretty plain and simple but it makes it seem like if you're it, you
are from London, Paris or Milan. Hahahha..cheesy but it's simple-ness
is what makes it stand out. It will be cute to pair it up with lots
of things.

Love this bow skirt! I got mine already and just waiting for
it to arrive! At first, I didn't add it to my cart but after seeing
a couple of these outfits, I fell in love with it. I love the bow and
I think it's the main reason why I bought it. I'm going to pair this
skirt up to make it my version of the hime gyrau style.

Love the grey cardagin

I like the vest and I was debating on getting it
or not. But at the end, I decided not to get
because I think I own too many vests. But I
did get the hat in cream and black. Do you think
the polka dot leggings are cute? I thought it was
too but didn't know if it'll look right.

I love this hat but too bad they didn't
have it for sale, on the site. I'm not sure
if they do have it in store or not. Or if it's
just another one of those product that is there
but not sold in store or online. Some things
you see the model wearing aren't found on the site
so I am guessing it is there to make the outfit look better.
Sad though, because they would have been sold out if
it was sold. I like it so much!

I have never really paid attention to this
outfit but looking at it now, I really like it.
Do you notice that she's atcually wearing
the cosmetic ruffle shirt underneath that
cardagin? I didn't even notice that it was
pictures of cosmetic on the ruffle shirt until
I went back and relook at every outfit to see
if there was anything new on it. I think every
makeup geek needs that shirt or the cosmetic
cardagin, that is sold online as well.

I like the white coat but too bad, I just
bought mine on black friday. But I still
think it's cute and I would have to try it
in person, to see if I like it.

I dig this whole outfit, well maybe except
the shoes. I usually don't go for colorful
jacket but somehow this jacket caught my
attention, in a weird way. I think it's such a
unique jacket and it'll definitely make me feel
like I'm a London girl! Hahhaa..LOL! What I
want most out of this whole outfit is the bag. That
white tote is super duper cute and adorable. Too
bad this is one of those item that aren't for sale.

This is the outfit that caught my attention into
loving this collection by forever21. I love everything in
this outfit. From head to toe, it's super cute and super

Love the cardagin, with a bow. My
color and my style!

I love the long cardagin but it
wasn't for sale.

Love the shirt underneath that

If you look at the cardagin it looks like
a bunch of blotchy spot. But if you look
closely, you'll notice that it's makeup and
frangances. This is their cosmetic cardagin.
I think it's cute, even the way she paired it
up in this outfit.

Well this is it for now. Let me know if you guys have
shopped for this collection already or not. I don't know
about you guys but I'm feeling Paris and London emotion.
This collection definitely inspire me to mix and match my
fashion style. Hope that you guys enjoyed it and love the
photos as much as I did.
