Morning Glory

Now that the storm is finally over in other words I just got out of a terrible job and I’m soo glad to be out! That job was literally killing the girly in me! I’m on to my next job and I start on Monday. I’m a bit nervous and a lot of things are running in my head. Mostly about my new work, new officemates and new stuffs I wanna buy! Hahaha LOL Last night I was watching Morning Glory with my boyfriend and I didn’t really know what the movie was all about, except it’s about a morning show or something. Haha! 

Morning Glory was about Becky Fuller (Rachel McAdams), who took the job of reviving the morning show that ranks last place! (Talk about challenging pressure!) Nobody believes in the show anymore, not the staff, the anchors and the viewers. But Becky took the challenge at the same time juggling her personal relationships.

I loved the movie maybe because I can totally relate it to my current situation. I was inspired as I watch Becky fighting all odds with her will power. And even though nobody believes in the show anymore, she continues to encourage everyone to believe in it and put their heart in it as well. While watching the movie you can see how she makes sure everything goes well. As she says “First in, Last out.” Hahaha She was a total workaholic! It made me reflect on how our attitude should be towards our work. It’s important to be passionate about it and not stop trying to be good, better and best. I’m just happy that I got accepted for this job, this is what I’ve wanted to try for a long time. I’ll just have to be like Becky then. Try and try and believe in what you do despite the ups and downs. In the end it will all be worth it.

The movie was fun to watch, Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton was bantering like hell haha You can see how the media people works so hard on putting a good show and the challenges they experience every day.

Definitely a must watch movie. : ) and yeah, I have to mention the last part of the movie, they played Natasha Bedingfield’s Strip Me Music.

“I’m only one voice in a million, but you ain’t taking that from me.”

And yeah, for my new work, I wanted to get a new bag!!! What do you think? Hahaha I just don’t know where to get this bag. I saw this bag from the series Lie to Me. Maybe I’ll find something a similar! hehe 

Have you watched the movie already? If so, what do you think?

Do you have any ideas or suggestion on where to get a similar handbag? Pls share! :D

Much love,

Blurry Week

This week was a total blur. Life happened. Everything went by sooo fast and I felt like I couldn’t catch my breath. Whew. I’m glad this week was over. Work days were a total hell for me and I couldn’t wait to leave already! Hehe It was definitely one of the toughest week of my life. It was so dreadful I didn’t even wanna go to work anymore and my moods are going up and down. One minute I’m happy as hell the next moment I’m pissed as hell. Have you ever felt like that? Feeling all suppressed and choked up but couldn’t really explain  how you exactly feel? It was like that for me. I didn’t really know the root of the problem I just wish it won’t happen again. Hehe okay I know it’s impossible I just hope it won’t happen so soon again. Haha So that’s a bit of what happened this week. Work was very stressful and at night I just wanna go straight to bed. I haven’t even read for a couple of days already! : ( and it made me sad.. Anyway currently I’m reading the 3rd installment of Mortal Instruments – City of Glass by Cassandra Clare.

So the first book, City of Bones is about the world of Shadowhunters (demon hunters) and Downworlders ( werewolves, vampires, fairies). Basically the story starts with a girl named Clary. She lived the most normal life with her mother till one day her mother went missing and that’s when she found out little by little how far from normal her life is.

The second book, City of Ashes, hmmm how should I say it? More emotional stuff? It still has the same adventure scenes but as the story goes on the characters’ relationship with each other became closer. Clary is already a shadow hunter and in this book she discovers more about her abilities and the world of Idris. 

Its genre is fantasy / adventure sorta like Harry Potter. They have their own world, communities, laws and powers! Yeah I’m a big fan of fantasy books. Hihi It was a fast read and I had so much fun reading it. Ever since I finished reading the Harry Potter series I’m out on a search for the next book series that has a similar genre without the childish content and this is it. I am definitely recommending this book. : )

Let's go to the vanity part,hehe Last week my skin was sooooo dry. Hell it makes it soo hard to put make up on and my skin didn’t look so fresh. It was because of the stress that I’m experiencing from work. So I went to Laneige to look around their stuffs and came across the Water Bank Care line. The Laneige specialist recommended the Water Bank Cream 2_EX for combination skin. They also have it for oily skin, so don’t worry. Haha It’s their best seller for moisturizing creams. The cream is gel type and it smells so good. So I got one and went home all giddy! 

This little jar contains a moisturizing cream full of wonders! It really made my skin feel so soft and hydrated. I use it day and night. In the morning I apply the water bank cream first before putting on the dual foundation I got from them as well the Snow Crystal Dual Foundation. For the water bank cream it doesn’t have any SPF in it but I didn’t mind since the dual foundation has SPF 22. Therefore I’m still sun protected! Hehe At night I use this after washing my face with a cleanser and add eye cream. I’m a sucker for skin care stuff. Hehe The most important thing is to religiously use them. I buy a lot of these stuff but I always finish them. :D except of course if it made my skin itchy and blotchy! Hehe

So the jar also includes a spatula for hygienic purposes in getting some cream from the jar. : ) I think you should definitely try this. My skin was soo dry these past few days but with this cream it turned things around in less than a week. I’m impressed and would definitely be going back for their other stuff! : ) I’m thinking of getting a new eye cream next hehe

I am recommending the Mortal Instruments series and Water Bank Cream 2_EX to all the girlies! : ) Let me know if your experience as well! : )

I’d love to know what is current moisturizer, please do share! : )

With much love,

A Rainy Day Rambling

Lately the weather feels so cold. As I’m typing this I can’t help but look at my window. I can barely see anything outside and it just looks foggy. It’s been raining the whole day and I just wanna stay in bed. But as you can see, I got up and still went to work for like a couples of hours then I went home early. I was afraid to be stranded somewhere in a taxi for God knows how long. Sigh. Right now my mind is just a mess. I can’t think straight. I’ve been nervous for 2 days now. I can’t stop fidgeting and move around. : (


Yeah I’m nervous for tomorrow’s job interview I just don’t wanna screw it up. I still don’t have anything to wear yet. Which reminds me that I have to check on what to wear for tomorrow before going to bed. Sigh this weather is making me feel so sleepy. zzzzZZZzzz. Kidding! I’m still up! Yeah I’m sleepy but it’s not gonna stop me from rambling. So tomorrow is the big day. I still have to go to work in the morning and go to that interview in the afternoon. I’m surfing the internet now for office fashion inspiration. Hihi I just wanna make a good impression and I want to dress nicely. Haha I wish I can wear something like this…

So anyway, back to what I did today, I got home early and to amuse myself on a rainy day like this, I made fried potatoes! LOL it made me happy for like 10 minutes or so. Haha and happiness ended when my plate got empty. 

Then I watched some Korean drama titled Miss Ripley. Oh Lee Dae Hae is sooo pretty. : ) I envy her skin. It’s soo white and smooth and her fashion is totally girly. Haha too bad I had to stop watching after the second episode. I still have to download the others. So aside from her flawless skin I like the way she carries herself. It’s obvious that her makeup style is just the natural look and she looks like a doll! ^___^ 

That’s it for tonight. It’s raining and I wanna stay in bed. Hehe and by the way I’m reading City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. I just finished I’m in No Mood for Love earlier. It’s fun, light and girly. : ) You can give it a try. It’s a quick read.

Let me know what you think of Lee Dae Hae, do you adore her as I do? : )

And if anybody has read City of Bones, let me know if it’s any good. :)

Hope to hear from you girlies!

Much love,

A Good Read

So today is one of those gloomy days. Not me. I don’t feel gloomy at all. But the weather is. The wind is too strong, strong enough to see a man’s ribcage through his polo shirt when the wind blew on his direction. Hahaha That was a funny visual, I saw it when my friend was dropping me home. And yeah the weather’s cold. So today was just a normal work day. Maybe it was better; I got to hang out with my friend while working. : ) hihihi and got a chance for some girl/life talk in between. I mentioned earlier that I was looking for another book to read and I stumbled across Rachel Gibson’s In No Mood For Love and decided to read a chick lit novel. ^_^ I've read like 89% of the book and so far its good.

June 20, 2011


Hey everyone.

Remember the time when I mentioned that I'm gonna be reading Atonement by Ian McEwan. I’m skipping it for now. I’m along 54% of the book and it always makes me sleepy whenever I start reading. : ( Can someone or anyone who has read the book tell me it gets better? Anyone? Sigh. I feel guilty for leaving it unfinished. : ' (

The reason I decided to read it was because of the movie. The movie was soo good and thought that maybe the book is better. The Author was too descriptive of each scene that it makes me feel zzZZzzz.

I’m just gonna skip this one and maybe get back to it when I feel like it. My kindle will be the one to bookmark it for me.hihhiihi My kindle’s name is Kyle by the way. : ) I’ll keep you posted on what book I’m gonna read next! ^_^

I’m currently searching now. Let me know if you have any book recommendations! : )

5 Movie Characters that are Embedded in my Heart

I am one of those girly girl who spends her some of her free time watching movies on my laptop while doing my nails. Talk about multi-tasking! I usually watch any genre but not so much with the sci-fi apocalyptic kind of stuff. (those movies make me go ZzzzZZzzzz.) As much as I enjoy action and rom com movies I do love the drama genre as well. I know I’m a girly girl and I admit I love watching movies with eye candy actors but I still watch movies with interesting plots and always give them a try. Wait I just have to get up and close the windows.

Okay I’m back. The wind is too cold with a bit of drizzle coming in. I’m already wearing a jacket and still feel cold. Hehe So as I was saying, I’ve watch a lot of movies and I would like to share 5 movie characters that I randomly love. I also added trailers! Watch Watch Watch!

5. Marissa Ventura – Jennifer Lopez in Maid in Manhattan

It’s a romantic comedy about a senator who falls in love with a hotel maid thinking she’s a socialite. It’s like a different version of pretty woman. This movie has all the right ingredients in making a romcom movie. Jennifer Lopez may be a diva in real life but she sure does well in her movie roles. I like how funny she can be at the same time show girl power! In this movie her character, feels that her own fairy tale seems too good to be true. Of course she’s afraid to let her true identity be known by the senator. But in the end, when you love someone, it doesn’t matter what your social standing is. Staying true to your self is enough. J Watch this movie and be inspired with girl power! (and I forgot to mention Ralph Fiennes is the senator in this movie. He may be the evil Voldemort in Harry Potter but in this movie he is the white knight!) hihihi

4. Jerry Maguire – Tom Cruise in Jerry Maguire

This is one of the movies that made him who he is today. Tom Cruise was fun to watch here, he was sooo charming and he completes me. Hihihihi <3

Jerry Maguire is a sports agent who has it all: A great career, amazing apartment, and a beautiful fiancée. Then the time came when he is experiencing a moral dilemma with his firm and decided to express it. And yes he got fired for it. While his career is on its way down, one athlete decides to believe in him and became his only client. His athlete was Cuba Gooding jr. and is a talented actor as well. The character, Jerry Macguire has a lot of fighting spirit with high hopes in fixing his life and career. With nothing to lose, he gives his all and got the best in life. :)

3. Jack Dawson –Leonardo Dicaprio in Titanic

Yeah, I’m cheesy like that. It’s been 10 years from the first time I saw this movie and my heart still goes on for Jack Dawson. LOL. <3

We all know how the story goes on, Boys meet girl. Both are on the opposite sides of social standing. And the ship killed everyone who was against with their relationship. Kidding! Hehe Well for me this movie is a superb epic. James Cameron is an amazing director and while watching the movie I really felt like I was there. This is one of my favorite movies of all time. I watch it every time I see it on cable. Hahaha! And until now I never get tired of it. Of course, Leo is a real cutie and watching his acting chops is worth every penny. I love how he was able to portray himself as someone who lives for simple pleasures and try to live his life to the fullest no matter where he is. : )

2. Jamal Malik –Dev Patel in Slumdog Millionaire

This movie is so inspiring in so many ways.

Jamal Malik is an ordinary Mumbai teen who joined the Indian version of Who Wants to be a Millionaire in his country and actually won. Then he got arrested due to suspicion of cheating. During the interrogation he then shared his life experiences on how he got to where he is and how he got to know the answers. This movie spells H-O-P-E. Yeah, I’m a sucker for movies with hopes and dreams. But that’s what living is all about right? If we don’t have hopes, we don’t dare to dream. If we don’t have dreams, we won’t have the will to live. This movie won 8 Oscars. The Dev Patel you’re gonna be seeing here is totally opposite of his character in Skins (the uk teen series). He made me realize that there are a lot reasons to be thankful for and I encourage you to get a copy of this movie and I guarantee that you’ll never be the same again. J

1. Jack Sparrow – Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean

Jack Sparrow is one of the most hilarious movie characters I have ever watched. Ever since I saw the first installment I became a fan! It’s funny how his eyeliner never smears even though he goes to the water to hide or swim or something. LOL. We should send an email to his make-up artist and ask for tips! Haha

i wanna know what type of eyeliner he uses

So Jack Sparrow is a savvy pirate in search for his ship known as the Black Pearl. I forgot to add his title, its Captain Jack Sparrow. He would have corrected me right away the moment he heard me. Hahaha! So he went searching for a certain pirate who took his ship and met a few frenemies along the way. : )) Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) decided to join Capt. Jack Sparrow’s hunt in order to save his love (Keira Knightley). The movie’s setting will blow you away! They have realistic props and though pirates’ fashion style is the messy look, their costumes look realistic dirty. Ahaha I don’t wish to meet a pirate in real life except for Capt. Jack Sparrow! Hahaha Tickle your funny bone by watching this movie! : )

Do you happen to love any of the movie characters mentioned above?
Please do share any movie characters that have touched your heart or made you laugh like there’s no tomorrow. :D

With much love,

In Brightest Day and Blackest Night

I was not really a big fan of comic books when I was young but I do love watching them on the big screen especially in 3D now. hihi One of today’s trends are blockbuster movies with awesome CG in 3D! and that makes me uber happy! Haha So this week I went to the theaters to catch The Green Lantern in 3D. Well I’ve been wanting to watch it since Ryan Reynolds was in it. Hihi Talk about eye candy! XD

The Green Lantern is created by John Broome and Gil Kane. Ryan Reynolds stars as Hal Jordan. He is a test pilot who in the movie is impulsive, adrenaline junkie and irresponsible. He is not afraid in putting himself at risks but is scared in dealing with his own emotions.

The Guardian of the Universe created a system where each planet has its own chosen Green Lantern Guardian of their sector. Using the green essence power that comes from will power, in other words the will to protect, fight for justice and fearlessness is the main source of their energy power. ( I feel like a girly nerd here trying to speak their lingo Hihi I’m enjoying this ^_^)

The Story:
 Millions of years ago, a villain known as Parallax was imprisoned in the Lost Sector by Abin Sur the strongest of all the Green Lanterns. Then came the day when Parallax was able to feed on 3 Green Lanterns who got lost in the area and was able to escape! Yes he feeds on fear! Then he attacked other planets and grew stronger each time. (Oh no!) and he went after Abin Sur, injured the purple alien and came crashing in the nearest planet, Earth. (our earth! Hehe) He was dying and needed to find a replacement that would have the exceptional will power to be one of them. The ring went around to earth and chose our pretty boy Hal Jordan. <3 

Yeah he is pretty, not to mention his hot abs! whew! Haha So he went to the Green Lantern world and got his pretty hot body a customize rubbery suit sort of like his costume. His power is pretty much anything what his mind wants to create in the moment of battle. How cool is that! I wanna have powers like that too, and I wanna have it in pink! Pink ring, Pink lantern, Pink outfit, Pink mask and Pink essence. Haha talk about girl power. Hihihi ^_^

Unfortunately, when Hal Jordan started his training he was having problems in dealing with his own emotions that he couldn’t face his own fear. The other Green Lantern aliens also didn’t really have any faith in him since he was the first human specie ever to be appointed. To stop all the arguing, he quit being a Green Lantern and went back to earth. Meanwhile the government found the body of the purple alien and brought him to their secret lab to make a study. They contacted the weird creepy professor Hector Hammond. (Believe me he is creepy and looks he hasn’t washed his hair for days, if you don’t believe me take a look at the photo!) Then he began to study the purple alien and got inflicted with yellow dna from parallax. Then he transformed into a monster looking guy with a HUGE forehead with bits of hair left on his head. And yeah, despite his creepy looking face he got some awesome powers, he can read your mind and has telekinesis. From then on he follows the instructions he got from parallax the big octopus looking guy on their plan in destroying planet Earth. Hahaha then the fighting begins!

Now you better watch the movie as I don’t want to be a spoiler! I want you to experience the fun eye candy sighting as well! Hihi

The Main Cast:
Ryan Reynolds – Hal Jordan
Blake Lively – Carol Ferris
Peter Sarsgaard – Hector Hammond

The visuals were stunning! I didn’t regret watching it in 3D while munching on my barbeque popcorn! Haha it was a fun movie for me. Aside from the eye candy actor and the CG it delivered, I love the message of the movie.

A lot of negative reviews came out but I watched the movie with an open mind and heart. I was inspired by the character of Hal Jordan. On how he admitted to himself that he was first afraid and fought that fear with the will to carry out his goal. It’s the same with each and every one of us. There will be times when we will be afraid to make a choice, to stand up for our self and face our own fear. But here is the answer now. We simply have to muster up courage for ourselves and have the will to face our fears. We are after all, humans. We make mistakes, we fall down, we cry and in the end we get up and continue fighting for all our future somethings. (Now I’m getting emotional, hihi) and that’s why for me, this movie is a good one. : )

The Green Lantern Oath:
In brightest day, in blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight. Let those who worship evil's might, beware my power.... GREEN LANTERN'S LIGHT!

Rating: 4.5 / 5

Yeah I only gave it a 4.5, they didn’t show much of Ryan Reynolds abs! Kidding! Haha It’s because I wanted to movie to be a bit longer. That’s it. Hehe

Have you watched the movie?
What did you think of it?
Did you like Ryan Reynolds as The Green Lantern?

Come on Girlies! Let me hear your thoughts by posting your comment! : )

Much love,

My Snow Cystal Skin

It was a rough week from work. To add it up I’m experiencing difficulty in dealing with it emotionally which leads to a bit of insomnia and lost of appetite with my daily meals. And due to this my skin is taking it badly. I don’t usually have that much pimples on my face. But this week was so bad my skin is breaking out which adds to my current stress. My current MAC concealer is much more suited for the under eye area and not for pimple coverage. So I went to the mall to cheer myself up.Hitting two birds with one stone. hihihi Malls have this ambiance effect on me that makes me feel like everything will be okay. While going around I noticed the newly opened shop called Laneige. It’s a Korean skin care and cosmetics brand. Laneige means snow in french. It’s the leading skin care brand in Korea specializing in water treatment studies for skin products by Amore Pacific. Their current brand image is Korea’s prettiest and top actress Song Hye Kyo. She has been their endorser since 2008.She has a face of an angel. Can’t help but gush on how pretty she is. XD I love how gorgeous she is even with the natural make-up look. I've always been a fan of her ever since her first Korean drama Endless Love. 

Yes I love Korean skin care and their make up as well since they compliment with my skin. I went to the store feeling giddy like a child in a candy shop! hihi XD So I was browsing the store looking at different stuffs then I asked the make-up technician to help me out with my current dilemma. She took off my make up off using the make-up remover and saw the little pimples and marks in my face. I explained it to her that it’s just due to a great level of stress and said that I want a light foundation that will cover it up and will make my face glow. Then she said that she recommends the Snow Crystal Dual Foundation with SPF22 PA+ and tried it on my face.


I bought it for PHP 1,800.00 and went home all cheery and glowy.

I don’t use any foundation on my skin mainly because I don’t like it when my face looks too cakey from the foundation powder. But with this one, it looks so smooth, clear and glowy. I can barely see the foundation on my skin. She also used the concealer that comes with the foundation bottle around the under eye area.

The make-up technician told me that the foundation is water based with powder particles for the smooth finish together with Vitamin E that keeps the skin healthy, radiant and prevents premature aging. After how many hours, my face still looked fresh and luminescent. My skin was still glowing even though I was already sleepy! Lol. The foundation was applied to my face around 3pm then I took it off around 1am.

Snow Crystal Dual Foundation with SPF22 PA+
To use the foundation:

-Lightly shake the container, pump 1-2 times and dispense an appropriate amount of the product to evenly spread from the large area of the face.

-If you need to add more coverage, reapply the foundation, and for the partial blemishes and spots requiring color correction, lightly cover using the concealer to get ceramic-like skin look. 

What I like more about it, it comes with a matching concealer, and it perfectly covers the small unwanted spots that are usually hard to cover. Skin feels fresh and smooth. Plus it also protects your skin from the sun and outdoor environment with its functional SPF 22 PA. They have plenty of skin shades to choose from. Mine is the Natural Beige 21. And it’s perfect with my skin color. <3 

With this experience I’m looking forward to try their skin care. I’m obsessed with skin care! LOL Day and Night I have this routine which I religiously maintain no matter how sleepy I am! And yes it pays off not to be lazy when it comes to taking care of your skin. This is gonna be the beginning of my laneige obsession. Hihihi :D

For more product information you may visit their website . I got some photos from their site as well. : )

Overall Product Rating: 5/5 <3

Are you familiar with the laneige brand?
Have you tried any of their stuff? Share it to all the girlies! :D

If you have beauty questions please feel free to ask! XD I’ll do my best to help you out.

Much love,
Lolita <3
