Help me pick shoes for graduation!

Hello ladies, it's been a while since I had a good blog post. I've just been pretty lazy with uploading pics from my camera. (how do you ladies combat laziness to upload photos?! kudos to you). Anyway, collective haul from Coastal Scents, CVS, and a japanese market.

From CS: kabuki, some eyeshadow pans, angled liner, fan brush, and they gave me a free sample of eyeshadow. I've been using the fan brush almost everyday to apply blush, so far I really like it.

From CVS: I've been on the search for the perfect golden/bronze color, that's why I bought the baked collection in Baked Sands. I have the Physician's formula Shimmer Strips for Hazel Eyes (even though I don't have hazel eyes, I just like to colors :P) and I love the fourth color from the bottom. It's kind of in-between bronze and gold, more like a shimmery brown with gold hints. I've used it all up and have yet to find a dupe. I ordered some NYX shadows from cherry culture so hopefully those will be it.
Also bought Physician's formula powder palette in translucent. I'm almost done with a similar one but the shade is actually my skin color. Eyelashes + Maybelline's Full and Soft, Sky high curves, and some makeup/toiletry kit from japanese market! I actually don't really know what the kit is.. it comes with two 5 gram jars, a tiny funnel, a spatula, and two empty bottles for storing liquids? It looks like it's either for makeup/beauty stuff or contact lenses. Help me out here, what do you think it's for?

Also been using Kirkland's Daily Facial Cleansing Towelettes everyday for removing makeup. I went through two packs of these already.

Also got Neutrogena's Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock as I mentioned in a previous blog. I really like it, it doesn't leave the greasy feeling. Yes, I know it's 85 spf which is a lot.. I also saw one that was 100+ spf O_O.

For mother's day, I bought mama some orchids to grow from Trader Joe's.

Oh! I tried pressing my lip sticks and NYX pearl loose shadows with Enkore's tutorial. I guess I didn't press the nude color hard enough because it shattered in my bag!

Baked some cupcakes with red velvet and funfetti cake mix and semi-homemade cream cheese frosting. It was pretty easy to make.

One package cream cheese + 1 cup confectioner's sugar + 1 tub of Cool Whip. Whip cream cheese until soft and creamy, then pour in sugar. After mixing well, fold in Cool whip. It has the right balance of sweetness and flavor from the cream cheese without being overpowering or too sweet.

Lastly, THE MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION OF MY LIFE!! Okay, I guess it's not THAT important. But still, which heels should I wear for my graduation? Open-toed strappy or pumps? I'm kinda leaning towards the pumps because it looks a lot formal/classy. But I still don't know!


  1. I like the open-toed strappy more than the pumps - I think they still look classy and elegant. ;)

  2. the strappy one looks more elegant.. :D

  3. i like the straps :)

    Btw, I just purchased the fan brush, and waiting for it to arrive from CS, how do you like yours so far?

    RYC: The contacts are yearly :)

  4. The mini kit is for putting your skincare in when you are traveling so you don't have to bring the full sized items. Basically you use the spatula to scoop it into the round containers. Hope this helps.

    The strappy one is prettier. But if you want to be safe go for the covered one cause you'll be walking a lot.

  5. love your blog girlie! Just starated to Follow :)

  6. thanks for the comment. I can't believe I'm not a follower of your blog! Now I am! :P

    and the open toed straps. . . HANDS DOWN! unless its an outside grad ceremony, it should be closed toed. but I really like the open toed straps.

  7. I like the strappy ones better! Also, nice haul :)

  8. I bought that kit before!!! I used it to store my lotions and or shampoos when I travel hehe =D
