This year's gonna' be the greatest! Started the night by attending the mass with my parents then countdown to 2014! Loads of firecrackers and fireworks! I love every second of it! I am hopeful for 2014! I can feel it in my bones that its gonna be the greatest year for everyone!
And of course I had to start the year with a lookbook post ^___^
The dreaded day has come! AAAAAH!!! My stomach was churning, like I'm in a roller coaster of something. I prepared for almost 6 hours for this. Had my nails done earlier today then went home and did my magic.
Here's the summary of what took place on Christmas Party. The party's main event was the Fashion Show. They picked staffs from different department who would compete for the 1st prize. I was lucky enough to win 3rd place ^____^ I also won an electric fan from raffle LOL. It was a fun night, they had comedians as hosts, they really know how to entertain specially PEANUT hahahaha. I also enjoyed the catwalk, at first I so nervous but as you start walking everything around you blurs and there's nothing left but you and the catwalk.
I worked hard on sewing the beads on my formal wear. I like how it turned up. A bit of Greecian/Tribal motif.
These pics are from Jaf's camera. Can you see my boyfriend at the back?? hahaha
My boyfriend accompanied me at this event which I'm really grateful for because I wouldn't know what to do if I was alone and without any support. ^__^
I finally bought things for myself such as make up, make up brushes and all that hullabaloo. My bonus came that's why I have extra money to spend for myself. Yipeeedoodaaa... la la la.
For achieving that wavy, soft curls I used Gatsby moving hair wax and moving spray.
For that extra oomph on my eyes.
Keeping my eyebrows neat with the help of e.l.f. Eyebrow kit.
For that oily face.
To get the coverage I need. The perfect combination of BB cream (didn't include it in the pic), Dream Matte Mousse & Mineral Foundation from Maybelline. Applied it with a foundation brush from Marionnaud.
For setting the makeup. Tony Moly's Aqua Aura Facial Mist.
For my nails. Caress nail polish in Black.
And for my arm party. I bought this at the Christmas Bazaar at the Club House. ^__^
I do intend to complete my brushes this 2014 and also find a product that'll get rid of my pimples. hahaha
The day has come for me to color my hair and I'm so excited! Presenting Etude House Bubble Hair Coloring in MOCHA PINK. They come in this cute box with a cute Korean girl upfront, a pump bottle, hair color packet, Silky Perfume Treatment, instruction manual in KOREAN and gloves & plastic cape.
Before - - - My hair is still orange-y because I dyed it Dark Blonde Red earlier this year. You couldn't see my roots but its already showing :)))
Here we have Etude House's Bubble Hair Coloring pump bottle. It has an oxidizer inside.
Then I poured in the hair color that comes in a packet.
Don your gloves and the plastic cape that they provided.
Move it from side to side. Do not shake the container because as you're moving the bottle its already mixing and you'll feel that its heating up so shaking might not be a good idea, it may cause your bottle to explode right on your face. LOL
Remember, before applying onto the hair it must be dry and without any hair products such as conditioner, hair serums & lotions.
*Don't forget to mix before pumping.*
Apply on your roots first then work your way down. After evenly applying the foam. Gather up your hair in a bun and let it set for 30-60 minutes, depending on your preference.
I let my hair set for 45 mins. ^___^
After 45 mins. rinse your hair only with water then apply the Silky Perfume Treatment which worked wonders. It made my hair so soft. I wish they had a bottle of that that can be bought separately.
And viola! Indoors my hair is like ash brown or as the package says "MOCHA" and outdoors its pinkish. I think it became more pinkish due to the fact that my hair is already orange-y ssssooooo I'm pretty satisfied.
The good thing about it is that it doesn't have ammonia that other hair color products have which makes it smell bad.
I'm gonna use it from now on!
I was up early! I had a lot of things to do. First up is I had to do the laundry (2 weeks of laundry), how dreadful is that??
Then i had to put up the Christmas Tree for my niece because she has been nagging me since the start of November on when I will put on the decorations. And lastly is to shop for things that I'll be needing for the FASHION SHOW!
By lunch time we had some visitors from Canada, my Ate Jeralyn and her family, she has three sons - the youngest was so adorable and cute like Mr. Bean, his name is Jacob. The 2nd was sooo cool because he greeted me in Filipino, I was like "Whoa, you speak Tagalog??". His name is Jericho. And the eldest was Jared, who was an amazing basketball player. The had fun playing NBA with my other two nephews and they also played basketball, 2 on 2, on our basketball court.
Then by afternoon I went to the mall to buy things for the Fashion Show. My boyfie was with me, he was sweet enough to endure walking around the mall and look for stuff ^___^ I love him.
After 2 malls, 4 hours of walking and fooling around with salesladies... I was able to buy 2 things:
I was excited to use the Shampoo Hair color from Etude House, I chose #7 Mocha Pink because earlier this year I dyed my hair Dark Red, I wanted to be subtle this time. I will do a blog about it next time :)
I was also excited to use my silicon bra, I can now use some of my tube top dresses that has a low back. ^___^ watch out for my blog about our hospital's Christmas party!!!!!
I really enjoyed this day. Very tiring but fun.
