Blinged Up Tidi Donuts

Remember my post on "Tidi Donuts"? 
They are adorable donuts used for winding away messy headphone cables. They come 3 in a pack, I showed you guys the cute sprinkled chocolate donut, but the other two were a little blah for me. So i decided to bling it up!
I added multi colored crystals to the white glazed donut! I still have the pink one to dress up! But that'll probably be done next week!

Softness worth sharing

while ago, Kleenex was offering free samples. I just got mind this week and its adorable!

 Its comes in a cute little box thats probably 3x smaller than your original Kleenex box. 

I don't think they have this promotion anymore but you can send virtual Kleenex here:

Pink Surprise Tutorial

I always go for my browns and neutrals for an everyday look, but while I was cleaning out my drawers I found I had some pinks in my palettes that I have barely touched. So i decided to make use of them for my dinner last night.

What I used on the eyes:
Benefit High Beam
Eye Studio by Maybelline Cream Shadow 20 Purple Possibilities
Esprique Precious T-3 palette
Lancome Makeover
Lancome Backstage Pass
Lancome Exibition
L'oreal Carbon Black liquid liner
Lancome black coffee kohl
Rimmel Lash Accelerator

How to:
I used Benefit High beam as a base
Using the light purple cream shadow in the Maybelline palette, apply to lid
Using a light pink (I used the pink in the Esprique T3 palette) apply to the front half of the lid
Using a fluffy brush, apply Lancome "Makeover" to the outer V
Using the same brush apply Lancome "Backstage pass" lightly over Lancome "Makeover"
Use Lancome "Exibition" to blend in harsh lines at the outer corner
Blend Lancome "Backstage pass" to the lash line

Apply liquid liner
Apply Lancome "Backstage pass" to the lower lash line at a downwards angle. This creates the illusion of more lashes
Apply the light pink to the corners of your eye
Apply Lancome "Black coffee" kohl to upper waterline
Apply several coats of mascara to top and bottom lashes

Finished! Hope you like it!

New addition

I'm in love with polka dots so when I saw this cute little dress on the sale rack at Zara I grabbed it right away! It was such a steal at 20$!
It has a elastic band at the waist so I can adjust it so its high waist or low waist. It also allows me to make the dress longer or shorter, depending on my mood and occasion. It also has a cute bow detail at the front which I love! 
What do you think? Do you like polka dots?

Tidi Donuts

My headphone cables always get tangled so when my friend blogged about these "Tidi donuts" at Chapters/Indigo for 5$ I ran to my closest Indigo and grabbed my own! 
These adorable donuts are for winding away messy headphone cables.  They come in a pack of three so each "tidi donut" comes out to 1.70$ each! 

Chapters/Indigo is also selling the "Tidi Gingerbread" for $5 too!! 

You can also get your own at locomocean if you don't live by a Chapters/Indigo!

Easter Eggs!

Easter is about a month away and stores are filled with chocolate easter eggs already! I'm in love with bueno chocolate bars so I was ecstatic when I saw BUENO EGGS!! They basically taste the same as the bars, but theres more hazelnut chocolate inside and they tend to be a bit sweeter! I can only eat one or two at a time as they get tooo sweet for me.

99 Balloons

This story is about a boy who has Edwards syndrome, also known as Trisomy 18. This 6 minute story made me cry! :(! 
"Trisomy 18 is a genetic disorder caused by the presence of all or part of an extra 18th chromosome....Trisomy 18 is caused by the presence of three – as opposed to two – copies of chromosome 18 in a fetus or infant's cells. The incidence of the syndrome is estimated as one in 3,000 live births. The incidence increases as the mother's age increases. The syndrome has a very low rate of survival, resulting from heart abnormalities, kidney malformations, and other internal organ disorders (Wikipedia, 2011)."

When I first saw the previews for "Rango" I was really excited to see it for several reasons. One, its a cartoon and I love cartoons! Two, it has Johnny Depp in it! So I thought it had to be good! A couple days ago, we finally watched it  and honestly, I was very disappointed! It did not live up to the hype that it received. It was rather boring and the story line was quite blah. There was no WOW factor at all. Much of the jokes were not even funny and if the film didn't have any big names like Depp and Fisher, it probably would have gone to the cheap theater really fast! 

Not worth spending your 10$ on! Wait for the dvd, or just download it. 

My Favorite Tshirt!

My good friend went on a business trip to Houston and she got me the best tshirt ever! We got the same one last year and we loved it! Thank you SO!! :D

Its just a simple black t-shirt from Loft by Ann Taylor but it is sooo comfortable! It makes everyone look super skinny and its the softest fabric ever! AND! its not even expensive! They're about $12.50 each which is really good because its such great quality!
This is so great because if I cant think of what to wear, I just put one of these on top of a pair of shorts or skinnies!
Wheres your favorite tshirt from?

My Weekend

I worked 9 days straight last week so I thought I needed a great weekend to make up for it! We started with a delicious breakfast from Overeasy

Traditional Benny send me....
2 poached eggs, Black Forest ham & Hollandaise sauce

Spanish Style Chorizo Omelette
Semi dried - fennel chorizo, green onions, bell peppers & mushrooms

It’s A Soul In A Bowl
Two poached eggs, herb potatoes, real Quebec cheese curds, slow cooked bacon & Hollandaise sauce

Everything was soo good! I especially liked "It's a soul in a bowl"! 

Then we went to help one of our friends look at a bunch of showhomes
After that we went for Korean jajangmyun (sorry I forgot to take a pic) 
and finally the funniest part of the day! LASER TAG!! 

My code name is "Winnie" and of course L was the "Pooh"! hahha but everyone was soo shocked I came out 2nd! Actually I was too since all I do in there is scream and run! :P! But its soo fun!

After laser tag we just hung out at a friends place! It was one of the best weekends Ive had for a while! 

What did you do this weekend? 

Chanel Ombres Perlees EOTD

What I used for my eyes:
Chanel Ombres Perlees palette

Laura Mercier Glided Garden Shimmer Bloc
NYX Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil 609 French Fries
L'oreal Carbon Black Lineur Intense
Lancome eyeliner Black Coffee
Rimmel Lash Accelerator
(You can substitute any of these with similar colors)

Missha Perfect Cover BB Cream No. 21
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Double Face Perfector 
Maybelline Dream Mousse Blush 20 Peach Satin

I'm in love with the first two colors in the Chanel Ombres Perlees palette. I used it with the brown in the LM shimmer bloc and lined my eyes with black liquid liner. I then topped it off with layers of Rimmels mascara.

How to: 
Prime your lid, I just used a bit of bb cream
I used the first color from the Chanel palette, a white pearl, on the inner half of the lid
Then I used the 2nd color from the Chanel palette, a peach gold, on the outter half of the lid, focusing mainly on the bone the pops out
Use the brown in the LM shimmer bloc on the top and bottom lash line
Using the L'oreal liquid liner, line your lash line
Use the same LM brown and blend in the harsh liquid liner

Using Lancome "black coffee" tight line the top lash line
Using the NYX jumbo liner in "french fries" line your bottom water line
Layer on your mascara

Hope you like it!

Mini Haul

I've been craving a new wallet for a long time... like 2 years! I've looked all over the world for one that I like within my budget, but no luck until today! I was at Coach and I found one that I really like. I'm not usually a big fan of Coach because EVERYONE carries one but I went in because they had winter accessories for 70% off! 

Anyways! I picked up this really cute patent black wallet with a pink inside for 40$! I usually like smaller wallets but this one was just too cute to pass up!  

I think this will control my craving for at least another couple months :D 

What do you think?

"Quit monkeying around with all those look-alike keys - pop a perky primate on top! MonKEYS are stretchable durable covers that fit over almost any shape key, adding a playful touch to a normally ho-hum object. You can even give ‘em names. Fred calls his Cheeky, Che, Kong, Darwin, Spank, and Nigel. Six monKEYS come packed on a clear peggable clamshell card (via)". 
They arn't as durable as they say they are, but they are SUPER cute! and I can now differentiate my keys!

Hello Kitty Fujifilm Polaroid Camera

If you follow my posts, you probably know I am a Hello Kitty fan! I've been eyeing this polaroid camera since it came out last year! It is soo cute and Polaroids are so amazing. Except its quite pricey, $250 on amazon plus Ill probably waste a ton of film, which by the way also has HK printed on it! 

I thought of just getting the original one for like 70$ and stick my own HK on it! A little ghetto... but its like 3x cheaper! haha what do you guys think?
