Nars Cap Ferrat Trio vs. Gosh Ocean Drive Trio

Like some girls, I tend to be daunted by the idea of experimenting with eyeshadows. For some reason, I feel that it can make me look overly done. I have stacks of eye pots and palettes but I always end up using them for other people. Needless to say, I’m more of an eyeliner-mascara girl. However, there’s an exception because some eyeshadows are simply too cute to be resisted like the Nars Alpes-Maritimes-inspired Cap Ferrat Trio Eyeshadow.

Summer Giveaway

Hello beauties! Summer is here so I thought I might put some sort of giveaway. 

Thanks to my closet and dresser for sponsoring this giveaway! Anyway, everything’s unused so please read all the rules before you enter.

Baguio City's Blooming Bazaar

Bazaars. Who doesn’t love them? Imagine a long strip of stalls offering interesting finds at rock-bottom prices. Even if you don’t intend to shop, it’s okay, because you’re in for a delightful visual treat when you visit bazaars.

As an unofficial Baguio City resident (because I’ve been staying in-and-out of the city for four years now), I feel excited when the month of February looms in because of the Panagbenga (“season of blooming”) Festival – a month-long celebration composed of dances, pageants, and shows. The festival’s highlight is the last weekend of the month wherein grand flower-adorned floats are paraded. There’s an enormous scattering of celebrities and of course, tourists everywhere.

Marchesa - Romantic Couture at It's Finest

My eyes always become starry when I see billowy skirts, lace ensembles, ruffled pieces, and anything that flows and flounces. Despite the fact that I also love pieces with roguish charm (thanks to Olivia Palermo), I still fall head over heels for classic and romantic staples.

I remember telling myself that in the future, I’d like to have a bridal gown from Marchesa. Whoever wears Marchesa is undeniably the belle of the ball and this understated fact made the label a resident name in Tinseltown’s red-carpet events.

Little Black Book of Style

Since I was three years old, a trip to mall could never be complete without me entering a bookshop.  A few months ago, I started to be engrossed over fashion books. Although magazines are more up-to-date, nothing can beat the feeling of holding the spines of books. I’m also reluctant now to spend much for magazines when I discovered that some pages of my Preview and Teen Vogue were torn by my brother who probably used the pictures for his school whatnot.

For this post, I just want to share one of the books which inspire me style-wise.

The Things We Endure for Beauty's Sake

“Tiis-ganda” is simply a coined Filipino term that refers to the sacrifices women (and men) endure for beauty’s sake. I read once that in fashion, when you think of comfort, it means that you’re getting older. I’m not sure how true it is because personally, I have my “lazy days” wherein I go for all-out comfort.
