Japan Home Center Mini Haul

Whenever I'm in Park Mall here in Cebu I cant stop myself from getting in Japan Home Center.
The store is filled with lots of stuff for the kitchen, bathroom, office and storage supplies and even yummy snacks! but my favorite part is the cosmetics/beauty section. They have a lot of neat things for makeup application like tools, storage boxes, lashes and so much more. And everything is either Php 66.00 ($ 1.60) or Php 88.00 ($ 2.14).

-This is the entrance and a few pics of the beauty section, I wasn't able to take photos very well because the guard was right behind me! -

These are the products i purchased, both in the color pink :D

This is the Cleaning pad,  I think its made of silicone and is used to gently exfoliate the skin when you are using your facial wash.
 It has a little handle where you can hold the pad. and you can see that the handle is sort of deep, its actually a suction cup so you can stick on your mirror or sink after using so you dont loose it.

A closer look of the pad, you can see the brushes/bristles or whatever you wanna call those tiny things that exfoliates your skin :D
Price: Php 88.00 ($ 2.14)

These are Eyelash tweezers, and its used to have better grip of the lashes while you put them on, its ideal for lashes because it has a pretty long tip so it hold the false lashes better. The only issue I have with this is that the metal is quite strong so you have to hold it firmly. 
Price: Php 88.00 ($ 2.14)

Japan Home Center always changes their stocks, so if you dont buy the item you want right away, you may not find it again the next time you visit. And you never know what new stuff you can find whenever you get to the store :D

Thnak you for reading!
Take care!

Nail Polishness: Lady Bug With Step-By-Step Guide

My fiend NiƱa requested for a nail design very similar to this and I finally got around to doing it.
Its actually quite simple to do and the colors you need are very basic.
And I totally forgot to do a step-by-step guide on this design on my nails so I'll be doing it on fake nails instead.


You will need the following:





And for the rest of the nails I just did a French Tip with red polish and outlined it with a black striper, and of course topped off it with a clear coat.

I hope you liked the design and found the guide helpful :D
Thank you for reading and take care!

With much love,

My friend Jieselle: Aspiring Model

My beutiful and tall friend Jiselle wants to become a professional model, which is great because she totally has the beauty and the body for the job. So when came over we decided to play around, and this means me doing her hair and makeup while she models for the camera, its gives us both a feel of the jobs we wanna have in the future.

I do apologize for the quality of these photos, we are no good in taking killer photographs. But nevertheless it was lots of fun to do, and one of my best friends Elaine also helped out and having her around is always a treat.







Jiselle legs that goes on for days, and when she put on a pair of 5inch heels she looked like a freakishly tall gorgeous model. CHAR!!
I'm sure she will succeed in modeling,it would just take more experience, effort, practice, patience and of course the guidance from the Lord so she can reach her goals, 
well the same goes for me ! :D

Thank you guys for taking the time to read this post!
Take care!

With much love,

Nail Polishness! USA and UK on my nails

I was looking at my nail polish collection and thinking about what design I wanna do.
Since I have always wanted to have flags as nail design I went ahead and painted on the flag of the US and UK, just because I had the colors for these flags. 

I originally wanted to have the Philippine flag design but sad to say I have no Yellow nail polish :(  I need to have one!


I think I'll be doing more of these flag designs in the future :D

Thank you so much for reading!
Take care everyone!
