I think it's important to have different shades of lipstick, at least two light shades and two dark shades for every occasion. I also bring a bottle of water and a banana most of the time, in case I get hungry. I didn't use to carry an eyeshadow palette before but sometimes, I need to darken my make-up at night if I have a date. That's it for now! What's in your bag?

I think the contents have evolved or not really from last year. Check them out!

Day to Night Hair and Make Up Tutorial


A day to night make-up. Sugar and Spice.
Day look: Gold eyes, pink lips, hair down
Night look: Gold eyes, dark lips, braided crown hairstyle

I have dry skin with a warm undertone. I'm also very acidic so the make-up tends to oxidize/fade quickly so I sometimes I put a lot of product on my eyeslids and face.

Please watch in HD! Thank you! :)

Actual make-up instead of the crappy Mac camera on my laptop.

Birthday 2014

 Birthday:
Had my first exam for two hours.
Went back home to change.
Watched the grand finals of our team's debate competition and we won!
Had a lovely dinner at Altitude in Shangri-la Sydney
 Mark took and edited some of these photos. He really did a great job!
"Susmaryousep. Ang sinampay!"
 Men with big feet.

 My 60s inspired ensemble thanks to Mad Men
Mango dress I bought 2-3 years ago?, Zara tights, Bluejuice trench coat, Aldo shoes, Marc Jacobs watch, LV bag
 Same view, different cameras.



 Yesterday, we hit rock bottom. Today, we were on the 36th floor. We're Astronauts. If you get the Mad Men reference, good for you.

 Lovely gifts from Mark. Gorgeous gold earrings lent by Mark's mother to complete the look whilst pretty roses were from Mark's sister, Mishi. Mark also helped me fix my hair. 
Mark's 2nd gift!!! a Japanese card that sings happy birthday and MAC Vegas Volt because coral lippies are big on Mad Men and I'm into the whole 50s 60s look! My lover knows me so well.
Sweetest win of the day! Congrats, team! 
It was all good. Birthday lesson? Be careful when it comes to big decisions.

Lionhearted ft. Urban Cone by Porter Robinson

Flipping out the light trying to survive this endless fight
If we shoot them down, we can make it right, we'll make it right
And they light the sky as they multiply, they multiply
No matter what they try, they won't take away our will to fight
If we shoot them down, we can make it right, we'll make it right

They broke the walls we guarded
But we don't care about it
We'll finish what we started
So promise me that
We'll be the lionhearted
For we don't care about it
We'll finish what we started
So promise me that they'll fall
So promise me that

No matter what they try, they won't take away our will to fight
And up against all odds, take a thousand lives, a thousand lives
So if you shoot them down, we can make it right, we'll make it right
  
 I AM SO IN LOVE WITH THIS SONG AND MUSIC VIDEO. SO MUCH THAT THIS IS IN ALL CAPS, WITH FEELINGS. Great song, great concept. This is honestly one of the few music videos I wish I was part of. Naman eh. I liked how Harajuku girls were used in this video and how the irony of their style and violence were highlighted with almost subtle punk, decora fashion. I can't even.
Have I told you I've replayed this like a million times?

 That hair though. How I wish I could color my hair again but I'm so scared I'd go bald. Haha!

 Compiled these pics from the girls' instagrams. Elleanor from Tokyo Fashion was their stylist and I love the subtle hints of decora and candy kawaii palette which contrasted well with the violent and "techno magical realism ala Matrix" (whuut?) theme of the video. It's just sooooooo me. This video inspired me to create a whole set of artwork which I plan to start soon and oh, listen to Porter Robinson. I like his music. 

 Enjoy!

Hurrah for May 2014!

 Let me just say, May was so much better than April. 
It was really pleasant even though it went by so fast. 

1. Mother's Day at the Boathouse on Blackwattle Bay 
Had a great Mother's Day lunch with Mark's mother, Tita Milette, at the Boathouse on Blackwattle Bay. Good food, good conversation, positive vibes.
I'm so glad that we were able to treat tita, she's been very good to us. She always cook delicious meals for us, worries about us, buys our food and medicine. She's so maalaga! We're really grateful to have her!



2. Fiesta in Blacktown 
So so happy to have visited the "Pinoy" part of Sydney. Almost an hour away from the city, Blacktown boasts the best Filipino restaurant down under. Complete with all the delicacies of the Philippines such as Crispy Pata, BBQ, Pinakbet, Adobo...lahat na! My ghulay! I was such a happy Pinay! 


I can't believe I still managed to eat Halo Halo last May in Sydney in the middle of Autumn. Never missed a Halo Halo during Philippine summers.

3. Meeting with Tita Tess and Family 

I missed, missed my family from New Zealand! Thank you so much for meeting with us, Tita Tess and family!!! I was so glad to see you!

4. Winning Debate Team 

To our beloved debate team and to the smartest kids I know, Mark, Anthony, Joe and I are extremely proud of you for winning almost all your debates. Good luck on the grand finals this week! It's my birthday so I know you'll win it! 

5. Birkenhead Point with Friends  

Thank you so much Marjory for inviting me to a whole day of shopping and laughter! Pinoy nurses are the best!


Had a great talk with my friend She. We've been friends since like 2005? Antagal na!
I was overwhelmed with joy when we met here in Sydney. I felt so comfortable around her that I opened up a lot of things. Gosh. I wish we could do this again! I miss you na!

6. New Hair 

I was meant to have dark brown hair, but it seems like my hair gets lighter and lighter after every wash. Ayaw talagang kumapit ng kulay sa blonde hair!

7. Vivid Sydney 2014 

A festival of light, music and ideas.
A romantic date by the water. Memorable night with Mark.
For more pictures, check out my post about it: Vivid Sydney

8. DZ Deathrays Concert 

All I can say is that it was cray cray. We were right in front of the stage, people started pushing, the next thing we knew, we were in a mosh pit with 100 something bags of hormones. And we loved it!



9. These: 

I know it was kinda late but I just watched Her and it was beautiful and sad.
Can't describe how I felt during and after the movie. You just HAVE TO watch it!
I also got addicted to Revenge because my boss kept telling me to watch it and I was hooked. And I think the funniest and surprisingly, most disturbing  film we watched last May was The Grand Budapest Hotel. Yes, the ending disturbed me but it was fantastic.

10. And This:
 I feel slightly accomplished all thanks to my wonderful team! 
It's been a while since I received a certificate for something. Had to put it here. Haha!

All's good this May. Better things to come this June!
