Of Haciendara Hats and A Simple Nail Art

Summer hats, or haciendera hats as I call them, were Liz's pasalubong for me from Bicol. I've always wanted one of these. She gave me this one :


Isn't it just gorgeous?! And she got this for less than Php100!

She said this hat reminded me of her that's why she got it. And I do agree! It is just my style! :)
 
 She also bought more of those hats for herself too!

 The two on top is hers and the one at the bottom is mine. <3


And since she's already in our house, I asked her to model the hats for me. Of course I had to do her makeup as well! haha! :P
 Here's Liz with my hat.


 with the white hat.

 and with the brown one.


And I also played with her nails so I can practice more on nail art. She wanted something simple. She had a french tip on her toe nails so I did that as well and put a blue flower on each nail with a few dots.

 Simple and cute! :P

Liz likes going to our house when she wants to be prettified. She sometimes calls our house her pamper place. I could see why. I just love making my friends more pretty. I'm like their fairy godmother! haha! :)

Accessory Goodies from Quiapo

My Aunt, Titart/Tart/ T'heart as we call her, dropped by our house to give us some goodies she bought from Quiapo a few days ago. She knows how girly her nieces are and bought these cute accessories for us!


There are earrings... (I collect earrings... I even make them! Someday I'll post an entry of my collection.)









Rings...



and bracelets!



 This one is for my brother. :P

She promised to take us there so we can personally pick out what we like. The goodies there are waaay cheaper than the prices in malls. I'm excited! Can't wait to get my hands on new accessories!! :)

A Night with Maroon 5

The night I have been waiting for came. I finally saw Maroon 5 in concert last May 23, 2011 at SMX Convention Center! (Excuse the low quality pictures because I only brought our little digicam. I thought DSLR's weren't allowed inside. :P)

The day was almost perfect except for some few circumstances...


My friend, Liz, who's going with me to the concert wasn't feeling so well. Her stomach was upset. But as an avid Maroon 5 fan like me, she insists on still going.

And after we ate our early dinner, it suddenly rained hard. We had to cross from the main mall (where Krispy Kreme is located) to the SMX Convention Center without any umbrellas.

Look how wasted we look after getting wet from the rain. haha! :P

Our makeups have melted from the rain and the long wait. :P

And we got into the line later than we wanted to. We just hoped we get a good spot to have a better view.

Look at that endless line! We were in line for at least an hour and a half.


When we were finally inside, we got into a pretty good spot. We were waiting there for around 2 more hours.

Liz and I trying our best to be patient... or to stay awake. :P

At around 8:30-ish, Liz needed a bladder break but Maroon 5 already started performing. If she left her spot, there was a huge possibility that she won't get back because of the huge crowd behind us.

But even if we thought our spot was good enough, the people in the Gold A and B part stood on their chairs which made it difficult for us to see the stage. Boo them! I was only able to see Adam's and Matt's (the birthday boy) heads. Good thing I wore heels and for the 4 or more extra LCD screens. :P


But Adam's soothing voice made us feel better. I didn't even realized how much my feet hurt since I stood for so long in my 4 inch heels. 


The band's performance was superb! They sang one song after the other without much pause. Like 1 to 5 seconds duration. We danced and sang with them as they performed their hits. It was a two hours straight partying! My favorite songs from their set list were 'Won't go home without you,' 'Stutter,' 'Never gonna leave this bed,' and 'Sunday Morning.' Also had fun when they made us sing part of 'She will be loved.'

We had a blast! We had so much fun that we've forgotten the misfortunes we've encountered before the concert. Maroon 5 never fails to entertain us with their music. I really hope they'd be back in the Philippines for the third time. I'd definitely buy better tickets by then! Haha! :P

Nivea Pacakages

A few weeks ago, we received an email from Nivea's Mikki Galang that they will be sending us some of their products for us to try out. We are very much excited for this generous offer. And a few days ago, we got the two packages! Each Nivea package contained several interesting products which are perfect to use this summer.

Here are the products inside the first package:









And these are the stuff inside package 2:







We are currently trying them out. They really smell good! We will let you know what we think about it on our review which we will post sometime soon. :)


Cheers,
DAWN and TRACE

Because I'm Inspired By My Nails

 I recently put some pink leopard print on my nails as I have previously posted. Many of my friends really liked it and some even want me to do it on their nails! I'm really proud of my work that I want to try it out with makeup! So I did!

Here's what it looked like!



I really had fun putting the makeup on. I experimented with eyeshadows and eyeliners. I only did half of my face because it's quite difficult to get both eyes look balanced and it's just easier that way! :P

Eyeshadows I used:
Dollface 88 Eyeshadow Palette

Eyeliners I used:
Maybelline Gel Liner in black, The Body Shop Liquid Eyeliner in Bronze, Nichido Pencil Liner in Black

The hard part was getting the photos. I was alone in the house at the time I did this so I had to take the pics by myself. I had to set the timer and pose and sometimes I just had to click and click and click and just check the outcome after. It was very exhausting and my arms were tired. haha! :P
I love my hair in this picture! Look at those pretty waves! <3

Makeup by me.
Photos by me.
Editing by me. 
(No editing with the makeup, just the cropping and background)


So, what do you think of my little experiment? :)
