Bang, bang...

Needed to change it up. :)

New post in a bit. I've been a sicky and have been sleeping early. Being lethargic sucks!

Sneak peak!

So spoiled! My BKK cutie Ms. B is in town and we finally had some girl time the other night. Shopping at Target and munchies at McDonald's! Haha! Anything but Chinese food...please! We have both collected items to give each other for the past couple of months and finally did our swap. I couldn't get everything back in the bag after I had taken everything out to ooh and ahh over. :D A formal post is on the way, but I still have to review some other things she has given me first!

Good Friday FOTD

It is and will be a good Friday. As long as someone isn't nerbiosa to hang with me again.

Once again another FOTD at the end of the work week. This is the second time this week that I've worn make up to work. Hahah! There is no one to impress in my building and my mornings have been spent running and rushing to get ready for work and make up is not one of the priorities. DIGUSING is because I don't want to be all pawis at work. For you non-Ilocanos/Flips digusing = showering and pawis = sweaty.

Full frontal. Mehhh.

MAC Lipgelee in Amber Russe

I have to find a better way to get some decent lighting so you can see the actual colors. Earthly Riches is a gorgeous duo that I love! It applies fairly light and allows you to build the color to your intensity.

I normally don't wear falsies to work, but today I decided to grab a pair from my stash. I bought a bunch down in LA from Asia Gardens Mall in Westminster. These ones are a bit dramatic to wear during the day, but oh well. Today it goes with my mood and my shoes. 4" black patent stilettos. Too bad they aren't Loubys I have been eyeing! :\

And once again the crap fluorescent lighting ruins the color. I wasn't too fond of MAC's Lip Gelee's when they first came out, but I finally picked one up at CCS. Amber Russe is exactly how it sounds. A light coppery color with flecks of green and gold. I didn't like the slip of the gloss, but this is actually a better choice than Lipglass based on how emollient the product is. I don't need to add a base of lip balm before applying and it doesn't dry my lips out as much as Lipglass can.

You always have to have a GOOD side picture. Happy Good Friday!

Lady Lam - April Special - $99 Eyelash Extensions!

Spring time is here! Well, for a few days here in Seattle and then we should have some rain soon. :\ Why not treat yourself with eyelash extensions from Lady Lam to feel pretty while running around in the rain? At least your mascara won't run down your face, because you won't need any! Christine is once again offering the $99.00 lash extension promotion! Space is limited so please plan accordingly for an ultimate pampering experience.

Christine Lam 206-948-1142
Hours: Open Daily, except Sundays - 10am-6:30pm appointment only
Lady Lam's website!

As some of you know, I did have eyelash extensions a few months back and I loved them! I had gorgeous long & full lashes without having to use mascara. While I would love to have had them on for a longer period of time, I owe it to my readers to provide some mascara reviews if they are unable to visit Lady Lam. Let me know if you guys do visit Christine and fill me in on your experience. :) You can hear about my snoring during my visits with Christine. Hahah!
