My brace journey begins now. . . .

I've been wanting to have braces since when I was a little kid. Not knowing the real reason why a person should wear one. And when I was a little girl, I did not take good care of my teeth. So, needless to say "Nasa huli ang pagsisisi". As of now, I am 22, and I already lost 4 molars on the lower area of my teeth. I also have yellowish teeth and had done several root canals. I have one protruded tooth (which is my front right tooth) , crossbite and the very sad thing is that I am almost near in "TMJ". Everytime I open my mouth I hear a loud clicks on my left jaw. It wasn't that painful, it's tolerable but who knows, maybe one day when I yawn, I can't close my mouth anymore. That would be a horrible thing, isn't it? At this point I decided to have braces even if I am On a very tight budget. Really! Napasubo yata ako, ay mali, napaNGANGA pala.

So last October 30, I had my braces installed. My dentist is Dr.Sixto Cruz III.

I'm glad that it just takes less than an hour to installed my upper and lower braces! And hey, it did not hurt. Well, I know once we started the treatment it will start to hurt na. (kaba kaba!).

Here's how my teeth looks like:

I have a protruded tooth at my central. I also have TMJ so I should have braces both on lower and upper areas.

Few shots that I took while the Dentist is installing the brackets:

Yay, ugly me. Parang tinotorture langs.

And just after less than 1 hour, tapos na agad sya and here I am:
 I chose color blue for the rubbers.

I am advised to visit again my dentist by next week or at the end of the month. It depends on me if when would I like to start the adjustment. Maybe I'll be back pag sweldo na ulit.

And now I can smile widely na on every pictures.
What do you think guys, do I look nice or nyan with braces?

I will post again after I visit my dentist for my first adjiustment.

Thanks guys!

The Amazing Shoe Rack

Hello guys! Good evening! So how was your long weekend? I hope you enjoyed it a lot. Anyway, I am going to share with you my happiness! Finally, I have this Shoe Rack that I've been wanting to have for so long. You know guys, I am a shoe lover. And I am starting to collect shoes since last year (dahil may work na ko, may pambili na ko ng shoes yehey!) but the problem is that I don't have the right place where I can put them all. 

Well, this afternoon when nanay and I was doing the laundry, a vendor was walking at our Sitio and selling the amazing shoe rack. Nanay called Manong and asked if how much is the shoe rack. Manong said it;s P650.00, I was really in shocked when I heard it (while I was watching Survivor Philippines, go Malcolm go Malcolm!). And we make 'tawaran' kay Manong. I told him that it is only P200.00 online. But he insisted that he can't give it to me for only P200.00 (syempre wala na silang tubo). So he gave it to me for only P300.00 as 'last tawad', mom agreed and she bought it for me. Naawa na din kasi kami kay Manong, since he told us that he really needs the money, he only sold 1 shoe rack from all day walking.

So after we do the laundry, we immediately arrange my shoes. And here it is:

 The Amazing Shoe Rack:
Light weight and Portable.
 Easy to assemble and dis-assemble.
Strong metal pipes and plastic parts.
Easy to Fold and Store.

Can sotre 30 pairs of shoes.
So  here's how it looks like after I arrange my shoes:

So I am able to stack 23 pairs of shoes (heels, flats, rubber shoes, slipper and some 5 boxes of shoes).

I normally put my shoes which have higher heels at the top kasi di siya kasya sa baba, mejo narrow kasi yung height of each layers so you can store your boots on the highest layer.

Here's the second layer. 

3rd layer.

4th layer.

5th layer

6th layer

 7th, 8th and 9th layer.
There is still one layer, but wasn't able to captured it on the picture.

What can I say about the Amazing Shoe rack?

Pretty thing:
Light weight
Easy to assemble
Can store  20-25 pair of shoes

Ugly truth:
The rack cannot stand with heavy shoes
You need to balance Stilettos and shoes with thin heels on the thin metals.
The width and height of the layers are too narrow.
If you only have narrow feet then you can store 3 pair of shoes on each layers

But nonetheless, I still recommend this to everyone who is looking for cheap shoe rack.

That's it.

The Wicked nails

Hello guys! Are you enjoying the long weekend?? I hope you are. Anyway, I know that almost everyone is celebrating Halloween (except me), lol so I am giving you this nail art inspiration. Or if you just love to wear black (emo) nail polish you can try this one, it will make your nails more attractive and cool than the usual plain and boring black nail color.

To achieve this:
Apply your blackest black nail polish, doing the french tips, but go down further on your nails, creating a curvy french tips.
Apply 2 coats of your black nail polish. Let it dry.
You can dot on 2 different colors on the tips of the blck nail polish to add chic look on your wicked nails.
Then, apply your favorite top coat! And your done!

Paw Prints on my nails

Here comes the rain! Seems like we cannot enjoy the long weekend because of the weather. Well anyways, I forgot to post last night, I am still not feeling well that's why I went to sleep last night too early and I remember this morning that I haven't posted anything on my blog, so before I start my paper works here at work, I am just going to share with you another nail-art inspiration!

I really love dogs. We actually have 2 dogs, who's name is "Jack" and "Bauer" (yeah I am not really a big fan of 24). 

So when I ran out of ideas if what design should I put on my nails, I just look around on random things and came up with this:

And that's it for now.

Whew, I do hope that by next week I am able to make makeup related  post. I just need a new digital camera!

Stay dry and safe loves!
And yes don't forget to take a hot cup of coffee tiz' mornning.

The Bride's Nail

Hi guys, how's your day? Mine was a bit busy. I was at the field. Anyway, here's the second post for my "nail-art week".

This is inspired by "Brides". We all know that Wedding Day is yet, the most special and and unforgettable day in a woman's life. From head to toe we want to be presentable but of course not overdone. So, here's a nail-art inspiration that a "bride" can try. This is simple yet elegant to wear.

Product Used:
Bobbie in Aqua
Caronia in White Satin
Caronia Colorless

How to do this:
First, do a french tip using Bobbie in Aqua.
(Reapply if needed). Wait until it dries.
Using Caronia or any white nail polish, make a five small dots forming a flower.
Run a needle on each dot, from outside to inside to make a petal.
Do it on the rest of your nails.
Let it dry, then apply top coat.

And that's it! Voila.

Muka ng chala ang nails mo!

That's all for now.

Thanks for reading my blog!

Sha Sha Fierce Nails

Good evening to everyone  I am not planning to post anything for the whole week sana, kasi my digital camera is not working anymore. I need to buy new one so I can make new product reviews before they ran out. But I know, I need to update this blog for you guys. I am not feeling well today, I have super itchy throat and "Not ordinary skin breakout". I have this itchy reddish small bumps all over my face when I woke up. I don't know if the AcneCare has something to do with it. I still need to observe my face for few more days.

Anyway, I am just going to post nail-art designs for the whole week (buti nalang may back-up files ako). Maybe by the end of the month, I can buy new digital camera na, yehey!

I did this nail art desing way back 2010. I used to have super long nails that time:

I did not use any special brush here. Just the normal brush of the nail polish.

I used peachy nail polish as base.
Frosted Red Nail polish for the french tips.
Black nail polish for the flowers.

 My nephew was just 2 years old here. He even loves to pose na that time palang!

I know, my nails here look gross. It's super long na. haha hindi ko na kayang magpahaba ng ganyan kasi mahirap ng magtype.

And that's it.

Thank you guys for the page views even if I can't update this everyday.
I appreciate the comments.

I won : Acne Care Giveaway!

Last September, I joined All About JYL  giveaway. It was being sponsored by AcneCare. And last Monday, Janet messaged me that I am one of the 2 fortunate winners. And I am so happy! Why? Because I've been wanting to win this giveaway, I am experiencing big break out now so I am very fortunate enough to win this giveaway that's why I am very thankful to Janet and Acnecare!

Anyway here's a few information about Acnecare in case you haven't heard or informed about the product :

So yesterday, the package arrived, and as always, it wasn't me who received the package because I am at work at that time, so it was mom who received it. 

It was sent by AcneCare through Air 21. Shalaness!

So here it is.
1 Bottle of AcneCare LActoferrin (30 capsules)
2 Murad Anti aging serum Sample 

I haven't drink this yet, maybe I'll start taking it by the end of month since we will be attending special occassion on November. I am going to share this too with my brother, so we will be 50/50, 15 capsules for him and 15 capsules for me. I really wanted to take it on my own, but I know I have to share it with him because he is suffering from acne too (mas malala pa saken). So yeah, I'll make a depth review about it once we've finished the 1 bottle. 

If you wanted to try this, you can buy it on any Mercury drug stores, or you can check AcneCare facebook account since they are having promo right now.

Thanks and have a great weekend guys!

The reasons why I temporarily snob makeup

Hello there guys! Weekend is coming near! I know we are all excited for it. Anyway, I would like to apologize for not posting any beauty related post for past 3 days. My camera went off, and I accidentally deleted the pictures of the products that I am planning to review here ( so much excuses right) ? Well, after my computer has been fixed (we bought new mobo) I wish I can fix my Canon Powershot A480 or maybe I can buy a new one soon. 

So lately, even if I have money, I am controlling myself not to buy any stuff, like makeup or shoes or anything. Well I did purchase something but it was just a Nivea facial foam and a Sunsilk Serum because I badly needed them. But, even if there's a lot of Sales ongoing on online shop and malls, I handcuffed (not literally) my hands so I will not tempt to buy anything. The reason why is this:

1.) I need to buy new phone. An affordable entry-level android phone by next month or on December. I am still deciding which one will I get but I am eyeing on to this phone:

LG Optimus L3
 You can on my question poll here if what cheap android phone is the Best.

2.) Since my 3-year old Digital Camera,my Canon Powershot A480 already went down, I am eyeing on this cheap digital camera:
Samsung Es90
I already saw an online shop who sell this camera with the cheapest price. I know it isn't fancy, but this is the only thing that my money can buy. I think this 14.2 megapixel camera is just the right one for me to take good shots of my product reviews, nail arts and special moments in my life.

3.) And last but not the least, one of the disturbing problem I am facing right now is that I have "TMJ" that's why I really need to wear braces as soon as possible.
I already saw again, a dental clinic wherein it offers a promo so 5k is enough for me to have braces on upper part only.

I am not dragging about this thing here on my blog, I know the things that I mentioned above are quite affordable to some of you, but for me, it isn't. It takes a lot of savings (5 paydays) for me before I reached the certain amount to be able to buy them. Actually, "nangutang na nga ko" sa Coop here sa office so I can buy a replacement for my mobo. It's hard when you don't have enough money but you badly needed tpo buy those things. At talagang nagsabay sabay pa sila. Well, I am just fortunate to have some of my mom traits. Specially when it comes to "pagbubudget". Well, I do wish that I can buy them all before the year ends. Hopefully! Sana! 

So the meantime, I have to snob all the makeup that were on my wishlist. Kaya ko to'! Aja!

How bout you guys, are you saving some cashing cashing for something??

Let me know through your comments!

My cousin's make over: Acquaintance Party

Another thing that I am proud of myself is that, my cousins don't need to hire a MUA (since they cannot afford it) or ask for someone else to do their makeup during special occasions. I am just "one kalabit" away, and I will surely glad to do their makeup. I just love it when they give their trust to me and believe that I can somehow "transform" them and make them beautiful in one of the happiest moment of their high school or college life even if I am not a pro. And of course, at least, they also benefited from the things that I've learned from reading a lot about beauty blogs. Most specially, it's overwhelming when after the makeover, they feel beautiful and say the sweetest word like : "Thank you ate Jenny"!. I just feel so good!

So here, I did my cousin's makeover for her Acquaintance party last August. I almost forgot to share this here on my blog.  So I decided to share it with you now. lols.

My cousin, April is a 17-year old college student at University of Rizal System. She wanted to look simple. Here's how she looks like without any makeup on.

But I actually had a problem during our makeover, I wasn't able to buy a foundation which will suit on her dark complexion. "Gawa paraan nalang".

She has thick and bushy eyebrows.
So I have to groom it, but since we were in a hurry that time, I just shave it and here's how it looks like:
I just redefined her eyebrows with EB Brow Pencil, and use the Nyx Eyeshadow in Sexy Blue eyes on her eyes. 
Nyx E/S No. 10 on the 1/3 of her eyelids
Nyx E/S No.10 on the outer V

This is how she looks like after I applied foundation, powder, e/s and groomed her eyebrows.

Here's the close up look:

Products used:
Loreal BB Cream
Shawill Blush on

Ever Bilena Eyebrow Pencil (Medium Brown)
Maybelline Volum Express Mascara


More pictures with her MUA, lol:

And that's it.
What do you think guys, did I make justice to her face?
Please, I need to know. lols


What do you want to see in my very first Giveaway?
