I wish you a Merry Christmas!

Christmas card

Here's my greeting to all of you beauties =)

You can make one for yourself as well. Have fun!

UDPP & Gay Clubbing

Yay for primer potion! I bought it the same day I went out to a gay club downtown. Here's the look I did for the night:

Products used:
- ULTA e/s in Amethyst
- MAC e/s in Carbon
- H.I.P. Cream Liner in Black
- BareMinerals foundation in Medium Tan
- MAC powder blush in Blushbaby
- C.O. Bigelow Tinted Lip Balm in Brown Bettie

I love going to the gay bars/clubs with my girls. I swear I have the best times there. And I always end up laughing my ass off, especially when I'm intoxicated lol.

Splash Nightclub - they gave out candy canes =)

FUZ Nightclub - it's an 18+ club, but you have to be 21+ to go upstairs.

I noticed that my camera sucks! It does the job and whatnot, but I'm feeling somewhat greedy and kinda want an SLR lol. Gah! I guess I'll just wait it out.

Surprise! I still have it...

Thank the Lord!

I thought I had lost my Sephora gc forever, but they sent me a final email notification the other day and so I hopped onto the downstairs computer and printed that baby out! I was hoping I can use it towards a little Christmas present to myself, but alas, my boyfriend wants the medicated moisturizer that he hasn't used in two months so my gc will help pay for that. Maybe it's a sign that I shouldn't spend any money on myself until after Christmas, even if it's free money lol.

Oh, and I finally caved in into buying a bottle of UDPP. I'm still hating myself for losing my Too Faced Shadow Insurance a week after I just purchased it. But so far, I'm loving the primer. I notice though that my lids still crease a little bit, but I think that they're just oily and I have to live with it. At least the eyeshadow colors are super vibrant and they stay on forever. That's all that matters anyways.

I'm pretty much done with Christmas shopping. I just have four stores to hit up and I'll be finished. Ahhh 'tis the season for giving. I honestly love giving more than getting. I just wish I was rich so gifts wouldn't have limitations.

Just 12 days till Christmas, everyone!

Where'd it go?!

I. Am. Sad.

No, wait. Heartbroken is a better word.

I lost my free Sephora gift card. I don't know how that happened, but it's no longer in my inbox. What the eff?!

Gah! I am so late on this post. Sumimasen -bows-

Thanksgiving was awesome. I ate so much at my bf's aunt's house. Drank a little bit since they made margaritas (YUM!). We waited an hour to digest our food before heading to my grandma's place. I brought the biscuits I made and this time, I made sure I put cheese in there. Now they want them for Christmas again. We went back to his aunt's house to pick names for the Secret Santa his family does every year. I got an easy one bwahaha! Got home way before midnight to try to shop online. My bf bought an ergonomic keyboard and I, surprisingly, bought nothing.

Slept in for Black Friday. I'm pretty surprised I didn't go this year. But then again, I'm happy with myself lol. That means more money for gifts, which I'm not done with yet =X.

I love/hate money. Like, forreal.

I told myself I would try to religiously update. I also told myself that I would do it tomorrow. Then the next day. Then the day after that. So I basically lagged lol. I apologize.

Like Ms. Kimberly Tia, I am in no way a makeup artist. It's been a year and a few months since I've hooked myself into makeup and I'm sad to say that I'm still learning looks, techniques, etc. By posting my "looks", I'm just showcasing my lack of skills lol. I'm practicing, yo!

I did this look for my very first San Jose Sharks hockey game. I was wondering how to get the right shade of teal, so I used Rimmel's Soft Kohl Kajal Eye Pencil in Denim Blue for the base and Milani's Atlantis. I built up the color and got the color I wanted. Yay for experimenting!

I'm loving my furry hat! (don't worry, it's faux). I used my newly acquired MAC e/s in Bottle Green. It's such a pretty color <3

That's it so far for my eye looks. Hopefully, I'll get better at applying makeup. I've been practicing with my boyfriend's sister since we go out a lot and she always asks me to do her makeup. She likes neutral looks, but I'm slowly convincing her to do colors haha. But for now, I try to do subtle smokey eyes for her.

Oh, and BTW, TWILIGHT comes out this Friday! Eeeeeeeeeek! I am super essited. I purchased the tickets already and I'm planning on buying the Cullen baseball tee for Thursday night. Yay Twilight!

Okay sorry about that. How old am I again?

Halloween 2008

October is such a hectic month for me. I know a handful of people that have birthdays in October, and one of them happens to be one of my besties: Lorraine. Her birthday is on the 28th, so she usually hosts a birthday/Halloween party. Every year we had a theme. This year's theme was vampires, except we'd be going out to the clubs rather than have a house party.

I decided to be one of the Cullens for this particular theme, although I didn't stay true to the book. In the Twilight universe, vampires don't have fangs. It makes it all the more scarier when they bite you and suck your blood. For the Cullen family, they consider themselves "vegetarian" since they don't drink human blood. That's also why their eyes are liquid gold or topaz. But when they're hungry, their eyes are black.

We went out twice for Lorraine's bday. First was Fuz. It's a gay club event that happens twice a month. I wanted to test out my vampire look. All I can say is, "What was I thinking?!"

For Halloween night, I decided to skip out on the red lipstick and used concealer under my eyes. I figured I wanted to be a pretty vampire lol.

Products used for Fuz:

- HIP eyeshadow duo in Magnetic
- NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Black Bean
- MAC eyeshadow in Hepcat
- HIP Cream Liner in Black
- L'Oreal Carbon Black Telescopic mascara
- Maybelline Mousse foundation
- N.Y.C. Loose Powder
- N.Y.C. lipstick in Retro Red

Products used for Halloween:

- MAC Paint in Bare Canvas
- MAC eyeshadow in Hepcat
- MAC eyeshadow in Carbon
- HIP Cream Liner in Black
- L'Oreal Carbon Black Telescopic mascara
- Maybelline Mousse foundation
- Rimmel lipgloss in Essential

Hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween =)


I apologize for not keeping up with this blog. I somewhat keep forgetting I have this since I'm always checking on Xanga, but then again, I don't update my xanga either.

November is finally upon us. I've been waiting for this month ever since May. Not just because it means the holidays are just around the corner, but because Twilight the movie will finally hit theaters on the 21st! If Warner Bros. had not decided to push Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince to next July, then I would've had to wait for Twilight to come out in December. And Lord knows I can wait no longer.

I was able to hook one of my bests into getting obsessed with the saga lol. She's now a "Twilighter" like me. I recently purchased the 2009 calendar, Eclipse in hardcover, Twilight in paperback/mass market, Twilight: The Complete Illustrated Movie Companion, an Edward bookmark, and I also pre-ordered the soundtrack on iTunes, but right now, iTunes is pissing me off.

I also received an email from Hot Topic with the details of the Twilight Cast tour. Unfortunately, I would need to purchase the Twilight Tour tee in order to receive a wristband for access into the store. And I also have to be one of the first 500 customers to do so, in person, at the specific location, which is in SF. It's not so bad, but since I haven't received a time frame for Robert Pattinson's appearance, I would need to drive to SF in the morning when the mall opens. Eck. I can't bring a camera either. That sucks! I'm still going to anyways haha.

So far, my blog has been covering Twilight and everything related to it. I have purchased makeup products and I'll keep y'all updated with my youtube videos, as soon as I know how to spice up my blog lol. I'm new to blogger so bare with me.

Breaking Dawn Part Two


I finally finished reading the book a few weeks ago and I can truthfully say that I love it!

I know I said that it was interesting from the beginning to wherever I stopped (interesting is not even the best word I can use), but once I started up again, I honestly could not put the book down. I'm stuck just thinking about everything that happened, I can't even put to words on how much I love this book.

Stephenie Meyer really went to town when writing Breaking Dawn. With all the new developments, such as Bella's POV experience when changing (it was inevitable), Jacob's imprint, to the final confrontation, no wonder Breaking Dawn sold so many copies. But then again, there are the negative reviews. I understand what they're saying, since many Twilight fans, also known as "Twilighters", are used to Meyer's style, they weren't expecting the various outcomes. Honestly though, what good of a book would it be if you EXPECTED how everything would turn out? It would have been mundane and there would have been a "been there, done that" situation. Personally, I applaud Stephenie Meyer for having such a vivid imagination.

All in all, this book is a MUST READ. Especially since it's the last book in the Twilight Saga.

On a more depressing note, Midnight Sun, which is Twilight in Edward's POV (le sigh), is put on hold. Indefinitely. Screw whoever put up the partial manuscript without consent! YOU KILLED IT FOR EVERYONE!

Breaking Dawn

You must know about the Twilight phenomenon that has hit the internet starting in early Spring. I should have read the book back when it came out in 2003, but I was engulfed with other things, which actually escape my mind at the moment lol. Jason re-introduced me to the book earlier this year and BAM! I was in love all over again. Or was it more like obsessed?...

Once I finished the book in a couple of days, I breezed through New Moon and I wanted to start Eclipse so bad, but I realized that Breaking Dawn wouldn't come out until early August, so I savored every single word while reading the third book.

I bought Breaking Dawn on the third day of its release and I was eager to rush home and read through the night. But as I was reading into the third chapter, I realized this book was definitely going to be different from all the rest. I should've known, it's freakin' Stephenie Meyer writing it!

So now with all the new developments in the story so far, the biggest change I've read in a person is Bella. I feel that the changes that occurred with her were so surreal. I can only see her in a different light.

I still have the second half of the book to finish, so once I do, I'll write more of an intricate review.

First Post: What do I say?

Hello, random reader!

I thank you for stumbling onto my blog and it seems to be your lucky day! This is my first post and I have nothing to talk about lol. I guess I should just say that this blog will be full of makeup hauls, reviews, and possibly tutorials, and also a lot of random crap. So pardon me for such a brief introduction, but I hope that my second post will have so much more depth and meaning. Or maybe not. Enjoy!


Rita =)
