        We all had that one memorable day. It sure is one of the most unforgettable day in our lives. Well it may be memorable in a good manner or the opposite. Either way, we still think of it sometimes. In this blog post, I'll be sharing to you my own tips on What To Do On The First Date.

1. Be Inspired
     Inspiration has many names. You better choose yours correctly because it'll reflect on you physically. Go for happy inspirations.

2. Be Beautiful
     Of course, you'd want to impress your date. Go for a fresh look like the outfit above. It's not too much and too simple. You don't need that heavy foundation you've been using for almost everyday. (Tip: Don't use too much foundation if you're only off to the office or the mall or you'll like a mannequin. Seriously!) A pink lipstick is enough.

3. Be Simple
     Don't be over dressed or worse, under dressed. Remember: Simplicity is Beauty but don't ever look like a Dummy. you really don't need to wear all your expensive clothes and accessories. Wearing them will just intimidate your date.

4. Be Late
     It's okay to be late for a few minutes. Let him arrive there first and wait for you. But please don't let him wait forever. Aim for the Fashionably Late kind of late.

5. Just Be Yourself and Don't Forget To Smile
     Flatter him with your humor and your killer smile. Nothing melts him more than taking a glimpse and giving him a smile. Don't be someone you're not. It's better that he knows you for who you are.

6. Be Ready
     Well, this is just a bonus. Just be ready for whatever awkwardness that might happen. Like, spilling your drink, laughing too loud, or tripping on the freaking street. If these happen to you, remember to recover with grace, poise, and finesse.

I hope I have equipped you with the bullets. It's your turn now to face the day and make it a success!

The Fairy In Me

        Since I was a little girl, I've always been so fascinated of fairies. I adore their beauty, enchantment, and their magic. I love how authors write stories with fairies. It just makes every story extra special and magical. Of course, the #1 maker of such stories is Disney. Disney is the escape of every human being whether you are young or just plain young at heart. It brings you to world where you've just visited in your dreams. It brings your imagination to life. You can now see your favorite characters and even play with them.

That's why when we had our annual English Month Parade in school, I get to wear this outfit. Actually, this was supposed to be a commoner outfit from the hit series Game of Thrones. It just so happens that I looked like a fairy princess in it.:)

I always believe that there is a fairy in all of us. We may not have magic but we can still make magic through our hearts.

          So I've been a very busy lady for the past weeks so opening my laptop and updating my blog were a bit out of the picture. I'm so sorry for keeping you hanging and reading other blogs. I know you all missed me so here I am and I'm back!

I made a short list of the things that are Making me Happy Today.

1. Family
     I really love it when our family is complete on a Sunday lunch. It's even happier when my crazy cousins come over and we'll just spend precious time with each other.

2. School
     Yah, I know. School? Really? Yes, school! School has been toxic these days but it keeps me educated and occupied. Plus, I get to spend it with my equally crazy friends!

3. Food
     You can never go wrong with food!

4. Music
     If you know me, you know that music is my first love. It helps me escape the cruel world and forget about anything else. I love to sing so much that when I do it, no matter how tired I am, I still enjoy singing!

5. My Boyfriend
     Need I say more?

          So there you have it! I hope there are also things that make you happy today like mine. :)

Almost There

(Forever 21, Shopaholic SM Department Store, SM Accessories, Caite Watch, and So Fab!)

          Actually, the first day of my last semester in college was last Monday but I didn't go to school (bad girl)hahahaha. Moving on, it feels so good to finally (almost there) finish school (hopefully). All the sleepless nights, growing eyebags, stressful days, nerve-wrecking finals, and crying wallets will be almost over.:)
          Of course, I will miss every bit of time I've stayed inside the classroom walls and all the teachers who made our journey the worst and the best.
I chose to wear this on my first day of my last sem because I was too lazy to pick something complicated and something simple so I went for the complicatedly simple outfit. This outfit will be nothing without the help of the super comfy and cute flats from So Fab! I bought them last month when they celebrated their 10 Fabulous years of great shoes for every girl, lady, and woman.

          Just a little more push and I'm finally free to live my life in the corporate world!

The Forgotten Doll: DIY Halloween Makeup Tutorial

          Still no costume for your Halloween party? Well, I got you in this. You don't want to be another divorced zombie, a thirsty vampire or another hopeless mermaid out of the sea, right? In this tutorial, I'm going to teach you transform you face into a new halloween chic with the help of makeup!

Step 1.
     Put a lot of foundation on your face. Pick the lightest color you have. (Now's the time to have that "Happy Foundation Day!" face). Seal it with a lot of white powder. Your everyday baby powder is great.

Step 2.
      Put a Luminizer around your eyes, forehead, and cheeks. I'm using Forever 21 Luminizer. It will make your face whiter and brighter.

Step 3.
     Blend your pink/orange blush on with platinum pink eye shadow and apply it above the crease of your eyes. After that, put a generous amount of black eye shadow on your lids.

Step 4.
     Next, draw the eye lashes on your upper lids and on your eye bags. You may want to draw a thin guide so it'll be neat. You can do this with a pencil eyeliner or a liquid eyeliner for more definition.

Step 5.

      Put foundation and and a nude eye shadow on your lips. Just don't eat 'em! To make the doll lips, put an X on your lips following your cupid's bow. To make it simple, make a heart shape on your upper lip and lower lip (Start with peach, your barbie/Minaj pink lipstick then top it all with little bit of blood red.). Line its outer part with black eyeliner to give emphasis to its shape.

Step 6.
     To make the stitch on both sides of your mouth, draw a thin line with your red lipstick and with a gel liner or a liquid liner, draw stitch marks on top of the "wound". I used Maybelline Gel Liner

Here it is!

You can still rock your Post Halloween Party! Try it now to shake those traditional costumes off.

Elegance is Attitude

          I know what you're thinking.. "At last! She's found time to post a new outfit and update her bog!" My apologies. School is really driving me crazy for over a month now. Requirements here, exams there, and paper works everywhere!!! It really is stressful but you just gotta do it, right?
Well luckily, the first semester is about to come to a great and grand halt. I do wish it ends tomorrow.hahaha

          This outfit is another version on how to style your Basics (White top and jeans). My white top is from Xara. I love everything about it! The color (so pure), the gold buttons (royalty), the fabrication (soft), and the overall look. Head over to the nearest Xara store and see a wide array of choices. The denim high-waist shorts, a gift from my equally fab cousin, add an edge to the look. Its silver embellishments give it a not-so ragged look even with the ripped parts. Of course, to add more spice to it, I choose to wear silver and gold accessories. I love how the entire look glued themselves together to create an outfit fit for any social occasion.
Remember, Elegance is Attitude.
