Ive been into a lot of stress lately..well for the past 2 months this is what saved me from breaking out..and im here to share another beauty regimen of mine..Again the things that works for me might not have the same effect to others.
You all know that ive been using Apple Cider Vinegar as a medium to my Aztec Healing Clay,but now im using it a little different than just a mixing medium.

Apple cider vinegar is a home remedy for acne. A typical application is one part apple cider vinegar to three parts water and the solution is dabbed onto the pimple.

Preliminary studies suggest that the acetic acid in vinegar may help to lower blood pressure. How it might work is unclear, although studies suggest that it may increase levels of nitric oxide, a compound in the body that relaxes blood vessels, or it might inhibit an enzyme called angiotensin-converting enzyme from
So basically here is what i do..
- I pour my ACV on a cup or bowl,then i add water(portion depends on how strong you want the mixture to be).mix it up
- Then i soak a few Cotton Pads..(squeeze the excess)
- SLAP!!! it on my face(=D)
Wait for about 5-10 mins..well thats just my time,you may put it longer or shorter than 5-10 mins if you want.
yeah i know i look ridiculous...but hey this look doesnt bother me at all..hehe
they'll fall off as they dry.
after 10 mins.. squeaky clean face!plus it feels very refreshing...specially if you would use a water cooler than usual..

hello ladies whoaaa.missed posting reviews and swatches..been wanting to post this for the past few weeks,but since ive been busier than my usual,i admit that i kinda neglected my page..but hey im back and hope that youre still here with me.
Mac Mineralized Blush in Two Virtues from Mac TOO FABULOUS Collection
a combination of pink and purple shade with of course an iridescent effect on them.
with flash..here is a simple swatch of the blush,on my cheeks there is no hint of purplish pigment at all...
best applied using a natural bristled brush..in my opinion,plus the texture is way better than my northern lights..
Ive masked the glow with my Kryolan anti shine powder..but if you want to have that natural pinkish glow you may apply it without putting any mattifying powder on top..and with any other mineralized products from mac this might accentuate your pores,the trick is just to layer until you achieve your desired effect..
so review started at 8am till 5 pm walked my way through recto,sweated a lot but hey the blush held on longer than what i expected.
Again ive missed you guys!!!!!
BELATED MERRY CHRISTMAS and ADVANCE HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL...Praying for a wonderful and prosperous start of 2011 for all of us.

And met a lot of great people with great personalities
they say i shed a few pounds..well watch me gain them back hehe
and of course lets not forget the friends ive made...you see..i was a loner for a week,never knew any of them personally,but as days went by,they also came in..and made my days easier as if we've known each other since college..
Some of my Groupies... The guy...he's Alvin..the Brain in our section..you ask him something,he'll answer it right away..with an additional rationale pa!..
Dane..the super emo,super cornic,Heart throb dude,this person is uber corny that i cant even talk some serious stuff with him..well most of the time...but nevertheless i love this guy, a palaboy just like me!
Karyl..ceu buds with dane,has a brother named Carlo who is also a reviewee..she introduced me to mendiola..a super fun,smart,and very down to earth lady. ^_^ thank you...i now visit St.Jude for novenas because of this gal.
Ada and Che..ceu friends of karyl, pretty girls,love this gals because they too are Kalog..and most of all very down to earth as well.
the ladies in our learning group..the small one.(lol) Faye..the gal with the itsy voice but super big heart..Jolly,and easy to get along with...The tall lady like one is Zel..often times she appears to be listening but then again...after a few minutes..she'll ask me..what was i talking about hehe, made me learned that Sleeping is okay as long as you know how to hide yourself using your long hair..the super cute gal with the big bag..she's Ate Ana..she also likes to talk and laugh,i love laughing with them,she loves the phrase.."I LIKE"..super fun to be with..
over all I'll definitely miss them,the people Ive met,the walks Ive made,the jokes that Ive heard,and the experience that is very much unforgettable..
have Faith and just Believe,Hope but never expect,Dream and Visualize yourself,Be what you want to be..
a thought from me..just me and only me:
Never let others be the reason for your fall..instead make them just one factor that'll make you Rise..

You all know how kikay i am..thats just one of the many reasons i enjoy my feminine life..When Mac VV collection was released i was not able to buy their VV nail polish in bad fairy which ive been searching for like 2 weeks...and when i saw Sol's post on her nail polishes i instantly clicked it hoping that she sells bad fairy...and as ive expected...i was wrong haha..so i opted for something thats almost as pretty as Bad Fairy..
Bought this from Sol at a bazaar,though i was not the one who bought this in person..hehe,glad that pearl,another nail junkie texted me.
here it is without flash..micro glitters,i really dont know what to call them hehe..on the bottle they have a very evident duo chrome sheen.
TSMGO One coat
2 coats..the shade on this angle is a bit red-ish with a bit of pink
on this angle it looks bronzy-ish
more shots of OPI TSMGO on different angle..(daylight)
so thats it,my very first OPI nail polish...and im loving it!

i never knew that id have tons of lip products,since im really not a lip person,but hey,i thought,that on most days,im not wearing face makeup,and all i have on is my lipstick..and then im off..so here is
one of the lip stuff that im recently loving!
(upside down photo=D)
A long lasting, ultra shine lip stick Provides vibrant colors Sensual texture for comfortable wear Makes lips feel smooth, soft & supple Lips look fuller and amp; more seductive
i always adore makeups with elegant and classy packaging,and guerlain is definitely one of them..
shade is in berry pink 963,i think they have 3 more shades..but do correct me if im wrong...
here is the stick gloss...pretty pinkish shade right?
and since this is still just a gloss,it doesnt give me the same pigmented finish as my lipsticks.
with Flash..sorry for the sweats upper lips =D
love it cause it doesnt dry out my lips plus the shades subtle enough for everyday wear =D
