Some might think that I already abandoned this blog, well you are 100% correct! This year is the most special for me, because  got married last May 21! Anyway just wanted to share with you our pre-nup photos.

Anyway, bf and I got engaged last year, but the formal proposal with his family happened last January this year.I didn't expect that bf will throw a surprise "pamamanhikan" that day since we were already engaged but then, he still did. Since then, stress started to devour me for the preparation of our simple wedding.


I will also share to you how much my outfit was and how to save money in planning your prenup shoot . But of course if you have lots of money then BOOK A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER.

Photographer : Raymond & Che Jimenez
Location : La Mesa Eco Park
Assistant : My brother
Stylist : Me!

We decided to have our prenup at La mesa eco park. Entrance Fee is P50.00/head (I called them and ask if there's permit needed for photoshoot, the representative said the photographer needs to sign a waiver upon arrival at eco park, but we decided not to since lahat naman ng nakikita namin na nagphotoshoot hindi na nagwaiver lol), and we paid P500.00 for the cottage. 

Here's how you can save money if you are on a tight budget:

 1. Ask a friend who has a good camera (which loves photography) to become your photographer on your prenup photoshoot. 

2. Look for outfit online or at malls, simply choose your theme and match it with your outfit.

3. Search online what usually the poses of couples during prenup shoot. Practice it at home.

4. Look for a park near you or a place which is memorable to you and to your partner.

5. Bring props! Props can bring big difference specially if you are out of poses. hehe

6.Just be natural, laugh and talk to your partner while photographer is taking pictures. Be comfortable.

 Since we are being practical, we don't need super magandang picture, yung simple lang pwede na. So here's some of our pictures.

My husband's shirt was from Divisoria. P150 lang bes! And his old shorts. 
Shoes were from World Balance.
My dress was from fb online store which I bought around P250.00
Boots were from Payless and costs around P1500

Our first theme was kind of relax and quirky poses. Hence the color shade was blue.

Second theme was more on the sweeter side and more formal.
All you need is props beh.
Second outfit was bought online at instagram, my dress was thrifted and cost around P120?
Shoes were from payless also which I got on sale for P250.00
Husband's outfit was bought from mall.
Earrings were from Divisoria too!
Lamang ang matangkad bes!

You always need to give your genuine smile. Pretend like, kilig na kilig kayo sa isa't isa kahit na in reality hirap na kayong magpose.

Ang here's a little solo poses :

My dress were bought from Robinson's Department store for around P800
Accessories were from divi and the props was a print out and cardboard.

 His coat was from divi too.

And the final theme was formal of course

Bouquet was actually for my bridesmaid, which was handly made by me.
And there you have it. Those were some of the pictures from our pre-nup. It can still be memorable even if you are on a tight budget. Just use your imagination and tips online. Preparations and the wedding day itself should be, not a financial burdensome to overcome but a celebration to bring great happiness to two people.

Caite Couple Watch

BF and I love watches. We've been seeing a lot of couple watches online, but when we saw "Caite" (kai-tee), an affordable brand of watches (not really sure but internet says it's from Japan), we went to nearest mall where it was available, and fortunately, when we went there, Caite has 20% discount on watches if you buy 2 pairs. Steal!!!

Only few pairs were available that time so we ended up buying this pair:

 It's a stainless watch, water resistant, quartz movement with chronograph for design purposes only.

I love their packaging, hindi tinipid, it has its own box and watch pillow. There is no manual included in the box, since this kind of watch doesn't need an instruction anyway.

The watch is lightweight, but very prone to scratches. The stainless they use was not high quality, the edges were bit sharp. These watches look expensive upon first look. 

This is le bf's watch.

 And this is mine.

The saleslady adjusted the bracelet to fit our wrist.  

It still looks decent and not cheapipay right? 
Would you believe that this cost P369.99/each? Plus we got 20% of the total price! Swak na swak to para sa mga students!

We decided to wear this during special occasions. It might get a lot of scratches if we wear this everytime. So, have you seen or bought watch from this brand?

Anyway, we also have Casio couple watch review HERE and another casio sporty couple watch review HERE.

Beauty Cosmetics Dianne Brush Set

Ever since I fell in love with makeup, brush set has been on my wishlist for a very long time. I don't want to buy cheap brushes at department stores or those replica ones because I don't want my money to go to waste. So when I had extra money, I decided to buy myself a brush set from Beauty cosmetics. 

By the way, last year beauty cosmetic brushes were available at Robinsons Galleria, but after visiting it for 5 times, brushes were always out of stock. I don't want to buy online because I have to pay extra 100+ pesos for the shipping fee (kuripot eh). Then, I went to the Podium since beauty cosmetics informed me that dianne brush set is available there. Fortunately, there is only 1 set and I texted them to reserved it for me. And there I have my very first brush set.

So here's Dianne Brush Set.
Sorry, if some of the brushes are dirty, I did not wash them before taking pictures.

Diane Brush set comes with 12 synthetic brushes, 4 brushes for face and 7 for eye area/eyebrow and 1 for the lips. But of course you can use it whenever and whatever you like.

Size is medium, not too long and not too short, you will have a very nice grip when applying product to your face using these brushes.

Face brushes are : |LEFT - RIGHT| 

Brush handles have brand labels on it. I also love that it doesn't fade even after several cleaning. It also has shimmers on the handles which make it look elegant and expensive.

Small Brushes : 
Angle Liner brush | Liner Definer | Eyeshadow flat shader brush| Bullet brush 
Small Blending Brush | Round Blending Brush | Angle Brush | Concealer Brush

Closer individual photos:

Powder Brush - This brush is comparable to artist studio brush from Landmark, but this one is more softer and not scratchy, It blends powder perfectly.

Flat top Brush - Or buffing brush is use when applying liquid foundation.

Stippling Brush - can also be used in applying liquid foundation with very light coverage. You have to stipple it while applying the foundation to avoid streaks and cover your pores.

Angle Blush brush - this angle brush helps you to find the contour of your face. You can use this in applying blush to your cheekbone and contour your face with the help of your bronzer.

Small Angle Brush - this brush can be use in contouring nose, blending eyeshadows reaching the part between your eyelid and browbone.

Large Shader Brush -People with big rounder eyes will enjoy using this shader brush. It can apply enough amount of eyeshadows. But personally, I use this as blending brush.

Blending Brush - but me thinks it is a bullet brush, and almost similar to large shade brush. I don't know why beautycosmetics made these two brushes almost looks the same. But nonetheless, you can use this on your own preference.

Small Blending brush - this brush is a little thinner than usual blending brush. It's perfect for those who has small eyelids.

Flat Shader Brush - this brush can be use in packing eyeshadows, focusing on the eyelids. You can wet this when applying glittery shadows.

Concealer Brush - this brush is a little bit thinner and longer than the flat shader brush. It can be use in applying concealers and highlighting the browbone area.

Brow / Eyeliner Brush - this one is slanted to make eyeliner/eyebrow product application easy. Brush is soft and very much helpful in applying waxy eyebrow liners.

Lip Brush - of course you can use this in applying lip products or even using it as gel liner applicator.

Well, you can use the brush anyway you want. That's what I am doing with my brushes. I am not really enjoying using the small brushes (except for the slanted brsuh) because I am not that good in applying eyeshadows so I usually use the big brushes for my foundation, blush and contouring. I enjoyed this brush set, and it feels like you're a professional makeup artist when you have a complete set. Tehehe.
