Thursday's Look: Date Night

Thanks to my friend Emily (you could visit her blog here) for helping me decide which eyeshadow I was going to pick for my look.  I wanted something that had matched my shirt.  I wasn't sure which way I was going to do it.  I had three looks in my head, but we both agreed the teal and orange would look nice.
The top that I am wearing was my birthday gift from my mom.  I haven't worn it at all, to my surprise I had actually forgotten about it.  It was hiding inside my closet behind some jackets.


My Saturday Look

Saturday was a very emotional day for me.  It was my grandfather's birthday, and he would of been 82 years old.  Though how many years have passed it is still something that hits me in so many ways.  That same year I lost my grandmother and grandfather months near each other.  I haven't cried about them since their funeral, and after reflecting how things have changed between my mom's side of the family, it hit me hard.  I miss them both loads.
We went to my mom's house for a bbq, to celebrate my grandfather's birthday.  Upon returning home, I cried as I reflected on the memories I had of them both.  I shut down for the rest of the night.  Just wanting to be alone.  Losing loved ones is never easy.  May they rest in peace.   
Kahit ano nga yare nga dyan yung familia mo para sayo (No matter what happens your family is there for you).  
So here is the look I did for that day:


Review: theBalm - Meet Matt(e)

I would like you to Meet Matt(e), a well respected palette from the company theBalm.
I had received it from my husband for Mother's day, and I was super excited upon getting it.  I have been wanting Meet Matt(e) for awhile now, so this was an awesome gift for me.  


L.o.t.D. simple does it neutrally!

Went for a real simple neutral look the other day, since I just got theBalm's Nude'tude I had to use it!

Review: theBalm Nude'Tude Eyeshadow Palette

If you love neutral eyeshadows, and want a palette that has a little bit more color variation, then you should check out theBalm's Nude'tude palette.
It has been on my list of wants for awhile now, but the only thing that had stopped me from obtaining it is well...if you know me, I love color!  Recently though a friend of mine Emily has got me into neutrals again.  So it peeked interest to me once again.  I then noticed theBalm was doing a daily giveaway on their Facebook and Twitter accounts, which by the way is still going on, so I decided to take my chances.  I ended up winning on Twitter from them!
I was super excited, and messaged them right away.  After being a pain in the arse of lack of patience, I had finally received it.  Eryn was even kind enough to toss in a Stainiac in the package.  So thank you for that!


Oh Mail Oh My!

Here's what came in the mail this week:
I earned a perk on** for Veet Wax Strip Remover.  If you haven't heard of Klout, you should definitely check them out especially if you are a blogging type of person.  I thought it was just a sample I would receive, but I ended up getting an actual full size package of it.  40 sheets, which I saw at Target for $8 sum.

The next item I received was the item I have been waiting for since I found out I won!
Eryn, from theBalm, was so kind, especially since I was a pain in the arse for being impatient (thanks again doll), that she threw in Stainiac Beauty Queen.  As some of you know, I already have it, but I am seriously loving it!  If you know me I hate wearing lippies, except for lip balms and such.  This was the first lip stain that I actually loved!  Nude'tude was on my want list for awhile now.  So glad they gave us all the opportunity to win something.  WHICH by the way is still going on!

All you have to do is Tweet @theBalm and one item you want from them, or you can go to their Facebook Fan Page and post on their wall the one item you want from them as well.  This happens every weekday!  So get at it, and good luck!

Which item should I do a review on first?

**Under no obligation did I receive this item or talk about Klout.  I will not get any additional benefits for talking about the product or company.


L.o.t.D. Play Around Moment

Yesterday I actually decided to shell out two looks for fun!  I'll have them separate though.  I wanted to do a look that didn't use so many colors from the Sleek Makeup Acid palette.  I picked three colors and stuck to it.


Review: theBalm - Hot Mama Shadow & Blush

I never really checked out theBalm until my best friend Les, had mentioned to me the product.  I began to look at it more often.  I got Hot Mama from a haul I did a while ago. 

I love the design upon theBalm items.  The cute, sexy pin up girls.  I was always fond of that era of makeup looks.


Saturday was date night!

So on Saturday it was basically a day where hubs and I had some time to relax.  Going on a little mini date together, while Xan was at my parents' house. 


Oh gosh! Open House time

This was my look for yesterday when I was attending my son's Open House at his school.  I realized I haven't touched my Inglot, and Sugarpill items for a few days since the new hauled in items.  And had to go, and do those.


Uh-oh FiS'ed moment!

When ever I mention FiS it means "F*** it!  Splurge!"  It's something my best friend and I say when we just pick up something, usually cosmetic items, and not care at all.  Or it would be where it's on our "I want" list, and we wouldn't get it, since it isn't a "I am in a rush to get it," sort of thing.  Then once we see it in the shop -ninja'ed and dances- "FiS!" 

Well today I decided to pick up a few theBalm items!
  • Hot Ticket - All you do is taupe!
  • Plump Your Pucker - Pink my lemonade!
  • Stainiac - Beauty queen
  • Bahama Mama (bronzer)
  • Hot Mama (shadow/blush)
  • Mary-Lou Manizer aka "The Luminzer"
Over time I'll show swatches, and reviews on it.  Which one would you like to see first?
