Makeup Haul

I know I blogged about telling or rather challenging myself that I should control on buying too many makeup stuff a few weeks ago, but I guess I failed on that. Because just two weeks ago, I bought a lot! Boy, I tried but it was really hard to resist these babies. so check them out.

note: I've been using some of those for a few days already, so try to read my very short reviews. hehe

so here's a haul of makeups:

1st batch (all from the supersale bazaar which was held at the World Trade Center)
Bought all of these in one day
1. NYX soft matte lip cream in tokyo - I really like the color but it looks too light on my lips
2. NYX eyeshadow pencil in Milk - it's good you can use it as an eye shadow base too.
3.NYX round lipsticks in doll and peach - I just love nyx round lipsticks!
4. ELF tinted moisturizer in Nude - I'm not contented with this one. I don't like the smell and consistency.
5. ELF blush in pink passion - nice too because it gives you a healthy looking glow.
6. ELF eyebrow lifter and filler in ash - at first I thought that the ash color is too light for my brows but the once you brush it with the brow brush it'll blend pretty well that is perfect if you want to achieve lighter brows.
7. CoverGirl pressed powder in clean - It gives a very light coverage perfect for everyday use.
8. Le Faerie oil control gel - I haven't tried it yet, but you can check out lefaerie's shop if you like.
9.eos lip balm - which is love at first try. best for those who have dry chappy lips.

2nd batch (these items were bought a week after my spending ban, see I really did not last long at all) 

1. Marrionaud N32 brush - two thumbs up for this one!
2. Stippling brush from Landmark - haven't tried yet
3.  Etude House drawing eyebrow pencil in 02- it is in greyish brown color and it comes with a brow brush. love this too and it's really affordable, it is only P128.
4. 4u2 dreamgirl BB cream in faith - not satisfied with this one, but it's okay.
5. MISSHA silky soft foundation - this one is okay too but not as good as their BB cream line.
6. Maybelline color sensation lipstick in Angel Rose - I have 3 color sensation lipsticks and this one is my favorite so far. I like its soft pinkish color.
7. Maybelline the Magnum Volum' Express Mascara - really good mascara actually it's is my second one because I lost the first one I bought. :(
8. Contour and highlight powder - haven't tried it too.

So, what do you think? oh. I think it's scary. scary for my pocket and wallet. This has to stop. hehehe. kiddin! but the challenge is still on. My first month of the challenge, definitely failed! but will try again. lol! :) So tell me this is normal.

anyway, School is about to end and summer is just around the corner, I could really feel the heat here in Manila. Ugh. Computation of grades is really tough man. believe me, it's hard to put a failing mark on my student's grade. (super maawain kasi ako) hahaha!

Enjoy the summer, LADIES! :))

Inter-class Competition

Last March 9, we had an inter-class competition at school, which was basically my idea. It is a competition where the students of all humanities classes will be given an opportunity showcase their talents and abilities on their chosen art performance. There were a group of students who performed "ala" Victoria Secret fashion show, some executed a dance musical, and the others portrayed a drama.

I told my students that the fifty percent grades of their final exam will be based on the judges' score on their performance, so imagine how much effort and arguments they went through. Arguments, because they all have conflicting ideas and not to mention that they're also time pressured.

My students preparing their props

Me, in a monochromatic brown, announcing the rules and the criteria for judging

My PM class, dancing to the song of Lady Marmalade from the movie, Moulin rouge 

from my AM class, portraying the role of F4 from Meteor Garden.
Ala High school Musical

look at those vacant seats. I took this photo at the near end of the program and apparently as expected, A lot of students sneaked out.

After the program, though my students didn't win, I'm still happy and so are they.

giving our judges a free snacks and drinks.
so, that's it and thank God, it was successful and fun.

till next time! :)

Rambling on my first year.

Hello! My blog turned one a few days ago, which I totally forgot. If I haven't edited some of my blog settings which made me noticed that I signed in March 6 of last year,  I wouldn't have known. Well, maybe because it wasn't that big a deal for me. Not that this blog isn't important, of course IT IS! It's just that it seems absurd to me, being mindful of the date you started your blog or any other social site, especially if it's just an ordinary day. You know some would even celebrate for it. I remember some people would even greet others like, "happy one year in the twitter world." Okay, I think it's totally normal to know how long you've been blogging or tweeting, but to make it as if you're having a special anniversary? Oh c'mon. Am I making any sense or I just don't see their point for doing that? just let me know. 

Wait. I just thought that maybe the reason why I have this point of view is because my blog is just so lousy unlike others that they even earn money and recognition. hahaha. I may sound like I'm self-pitying but I'm not (I really chose to make this blog discreet. Only my husband and sibs know about this. Hahahaha.) Seriously, If your blog is the reason for making your life so wonderful, the turning point, better, or call it what you want, then I think you should probably celebrate. To tell you honestly, This blog was created out of boredom and curiosity; you know just to test the water. I never really intended to make it like this, like being open and making others read my thoughts, for I am very private person (am I? I think I should change to "was" now. Hahahaha) and embarrassing as this may sound, another reason is, I want to practice writing because I wasn't really confident with it (was I? or still I am? hahaha again.) But I am really glad on how the real intention turned to be wonderful, because I really enjoy doing this. Just bear with me for all the random posts, I know my blog isn't organized, but right now I'm just happy with the way it is.

So I don't know how I would end this post, because my brain is so fragmented right now, that it is really hard for me to focus. Why? because it's freakin 3:33 in the morning. Everybody's asleep and here I am typing on some non-sense topic.

So, there for my one year in this blogging thingy, I have this stupid post! hahaha.

The day I turned another year older

Heya guys! Quoting from what the first part of my dad's text message: "Some twenty four years ago, around 4 o'clock in the morning, you were born." Yes, last February 26, 2012, I celebrated my 24th birthday. God, twenty four? why I still feel the same as when I was in high school? haha. Have you ever felt that? like knowing your age number is increasing but still feel the same way? Not that I'm acting immatured, in fact, I think I'm acting very well according to my age, it's just that I feel that nothing has changed about me. Is it normal? or maybe that's just how fast time passes. What do you think? When I was a lot younger, every time I hear someone who is on his/her twenties I thought he/she is already old. so, anyway I said the word "younger" instead of "young" because I know that being twenty four or in twenties means you're still young and definitely not old, okay? A thing that you should correct to the kids, because for sure they're thinking the same thing when I was a child. And when you reach the age of 30's or even 40's correct them again. hahaha :))

So here are some photos from that day:

After having snacks and playing some games at our house, we went to Fiesta Island Seafood Hub (FISH) located at Visayas Avenue, QC.

love the ambiance

the wicked sisters. lol! :)

what we ordered: special bangus(milkfish), camaron rebosado, pancit canton, kinilaw (raw fish with vinegar and  coconut milk) and baked scallops(my fave). :)

with my two kids (they gave me a card that day, aww sweet of them)

kiddos! :) 

warming up for a 4-hour fun karaoke. :)

cool wallpaper makes us feel like we were at the beach.

the husbands, who stayed outside at the later part to have some coffee and talk which gave us(girls) more freedom to do the dancing. lol! :)
with my wonderful Sab :)

I had so much fun and of course the greetings from my family, friends, and relatives made my day extra special. :)

thank you so much guys!! :)
