That's the first word that came to my mind when I finally saw the venue.

Not only that! The food, the chairs, the cotton candy and the drinks are all PINK!
This is heaven for me. Nyehehehe.

Thanks Tous Les Jous for the macarons and sweet delights. And oh, the pink cola.
Noticed a cute pink street lamp on the side. Clap clap to the venue designer!
On the middle was the pink cola from Tous Les Jous.
On the other side, the pink car named ETUDE (guessing). Hahaha.

The Giyomi booth and the Photo booth.
This is the line for the make-up booth. We've waited for almost one hour just for the make-over but it was worth it! Look at the result 

While hopping to every booth, Etude House make sure that we can still enjoy the program.
Colleen Garcia, Miles Ocampo, Paul Salas, Neil Coleta, Ella Cruz, Diego Loyzaga and Dominic Roque visited. Carla Humphries as the event's host. 
Bianca Valerio gave a talk about her make-up tips and Mr. Ryuji Shiomitsu for fashion-tips.

There are also performances from Shiners and a girl group (sorry I really don't know their name).

Buddies! Kate and Kathlea! <3

Etude House gave a little small crown/tiara to every girl in the event. They really made us feel like a princess!

Thank you Etude House for the experience! And thanks for the freebies. Hihi. :)

It's my first time to visit I am Shoe In Love. I  think this year has been jam packed! 

A two day shoe bazaar of local and international brand organized by The List Group, the event was on it's 3rd year now. Venue was NBC Tent in Taguig, I went there in the afternoon on their first day. I can't remember the exact time, maybe 3-4:00 PM and I was already their 3000th guest. 

On to my outfit, I just love the combination of Turquoise and Pink plus the touch of my red ballet shoes... very comfortable and girly. 
Ballet Shoes - Reva    /  Top - Landmark   /  Shorts - Somewhere in my Closet

Now, lets go inside the bazaar!
Jam packed day 1, naaaaah! I need to make bugbugan pa just in choosing some of the super sale shoes.

Melissa Shoes and Booties!

Just when I say SUPER SALE! P500.00 and P999.00 only!
Also available, stylish shoes for kids.

 My love with flat shoes made my money gone.

Rag-made shoes. They also have rag-made wallet/phone case, and I bought one just for P80.00!

Shopping galore! Money gone, but satisfied. 
What's inside? Soon!

Excited for next year! Congrats The List Group!

High Definition

Another week will about to end and I can say that this week was ....... Okay, no bad vibes on my blog! 
By the way, this post is all about how I do my make-up everyday.

With my permanent short curly hair I don't need an extra effort on doing my hairstyle everyday. I don't even comb my hair (cause it's bawal and I'm lazy. hihihi). I just let it dry while on my way to work and that's it! Anyways, going back to my face, I'm using a nude beige face powder from Maybelline  and do some drawing and combing on my eye brows. The only thing that gives color to my face is my lisptick. My super PINK lippieeee. 

This is what I use, Nichido's HIGH DEFINITION pretty tulip lipstick. The color will give a matte pink touch on your lips. Also available on glam red, tropical coral, love potion, fetish pink, rouge blossom, dolly pink and passion fruit.

Gotta grab yours now! Nichido High Definition Lipsticks is available on any Watsons Stores nationwide!

By the way, did I already say that you can have one for just P198.00? Yes! If you're a busy girl like me, no time for effort-full make-ups, this is one of the best stuffs you should have in your bags! 

Looking forward for the weekend!
