Jennifer Lawrence in Dior, Claire Danes in Versace and Jessica Alba in Oscar Dela Renta but they are all in that same coral hue.

Just a tip to those who are getting married this coming spring, splash a vibrant color on your bridesmaids’ body to add energy and create positive vibes.

Japonesque goes wild

I passed by Beauty Bar (It’s like Ulta in the Phils.) yesterday and my eyes were immediately caught be the Japonesque Safari Chic travel brush set and I must say it’s definitely wild!

Around P1500/set

Kabuki brush in this cheetah design is also available around P800/pc.1

Another new offering is the HD dual sided long handle brushes. This is so nice, one side is used to apply, the other side to blend. I just couldn’t resist to buy this. At P895/pc, definitely must have for easy eye make up application.

Lastly,  have you guys seen Japonesque baby? here’s a preview from their site… cute version of wild animals eh?

Yeah, it’s been a busy month. If you happen to pass by my blog and see no update, my apologies. It’s not that there’s not much happening coz there so many happenings that I barely have time to take photos and document everything. Anyway, couple of days ago, we had a seven course meal at Summer Palace, Edsa Shangri-la to celebrate a special occasion. Everything looked and taste delicious that I forgot to take each course a photo, imagine that. Here’s the list of the items just incase you’re interested.

Rabbit on Horses

It’s almost Chinese New Year again and I thought of reviewing the predictions for my sign in 2011.

Let’s see what we got here…

CAREER: It said that I need to buckle down and bite tongue to cause less trouble- I forgot about this advice and It did caused me trouble actually. But I sticked to my job even when I got bored so that’s 1 point for me. And still I’m learning the value patience and quiet diligence, so I’m still waiting for the results. (1 point)

HEALTH: Yes, I’m mostly sick last year. I was pregnant and had bronchial asthma. The doctor advised me to get some sunlight, eat healthy and take a rest and I did. (1 point)

FINANCES: I didn’t see any money-making opportunities… I was busy taking care of myself and my baby. Damn! And I think my impulsive shopping tendencies could never be curbed. (0 points)

RELATIONSHIP: Last year was really a challenge to finally make a commitment. I’m a horse, I love to run free to my heart’s content but I learned to compromise a bit my freedom and independence to the ones I love. It said “Don’t give up who you are” and I didn’t. Perfect time will come. (2 points)

Chinese astrology is indeed true in this case.

It’s still 2 more weeks before the year of the water dragon starts but I’m excited already to get some tips on how I can make the most out of 2012.
