Christmas Nail Art

Hey there! How are your holidays? Mine's great. I've been able to rest and get enough sleep, and of course, let's not forget about the food. I promised myself that I'll start on my diet December come but I can see food everywhere so goodbye diet, hello eating. Haha! I think I'll just start it this January. Hopefully, I'll be successful. :P

I know Christmas is over and this nail art is a bit late but I think it still fits the season. I was finally motivated to do a nail art and the theme is Christmas.





I think I'll submit this nail art as my entry for the Dazzle Dry Nail Art contest. Hopefully, I'll win. :D 

When I was doing this nail art, I realized that I haven't bought a nail polish in months. I think I should start buying again because the shades I have are limited. I was a bit frustrated before I started this nail art because I didn't have the correct shade of green and red. I should really start collecting again. The problem, though, is that I have no money. T_T No review/classes = no money. I definitely need a job. Anyone willing to give me a job? :D Haha.

Anyway, I hope you like this nail art! Enjoy your holidays! :)

Happy Christmas!

This is just a quick post to greet you a very Merry Christmas! I hope you and your tummies are happy with all the food from last night's celebration. But of course, let's not forget that we are celebrating the birthday of our Lord Jesus. 

My guinea pig would also want to greet you so here's a photo of her in a Christmas hat.




There are only a few photos because she got angry afterwards. Haha. Little Guinea Pig has a temper. But she's so cute, right? 

Anyway, what did you receive for Christmas? :) Oh, right! Speaking of gifts, Uniqso is having a YEAR END BONANZA. I think this would be a great gift for yourself and for your friends especially that circle lenses are now becoming a trend. Plus, Uniqso has a wide array of lenses so there's a lot to choose from. Just click the image below to check out their site. :D



I know I'm late with my nail art posts but I'm still enjoying the break but I promise I'll do it as soon as I can. I already have ideas in mind. Happy holidays everyone! :)

A Sad Farewell

I'm really sorry for the lack of updates. I was caught up with my board exam. Since July, I have been reviewing for it and last December 16-17, I took the 5 most important exams of my life. The results will be released on February. I really pray for good results.

Anyway, after the exam, I was really supposed to update my blog with new reviews. However, my 4 (almost 5) year old rabbit got sick. I had to take care of him because he was really not feeling well. He wasn't eating nor drinking. For the whole afternoon yesterday, I let him sleep on my bed and he really liked it. I thought he was finally recovering. When I woke up this morning, I tried to wake him up but his body was already stiff. I brushed my hand against his fur and I started crying. I just couldn't believe my eyes. I actually thought he was going to recover because he always recovers after he gets sick. If only I knew, I wouldn't have slept that night. I would have hugged him until his last breath. It's just really a very sad day for me. I've been crying the whole day. I miss how he follows me around the house and he greets me whenever he sees me. I know that rabbits don't have a particular sound but, you see, we connected. He is so loyal to me and it really breaks my heart to see him die. 

I really hope he didn't struggle. I hope he had a peaceful death. :'( Goodbye my loyal, Bunny. I'll miss you! :'(

Circle Lens Review: Vassen MagicEye Brown

Two weeks ago, I received another happy mail. This time it's from MapleLens, an online store located in Malaysia which sells a wide array of circle lenses. They have a very nice customer service and they also ship really fast. 

I got the Vassen MagicEye Brown. This is actually the first brown lens I've tried. Okay, let's start with the review~

A BIGBANG Night to Remember

OCTOBER 23, 2012 - THE NIGHT BEFORE THE BIGBANG CONCERT

The winners for the "Samsung Makes Big Bang Alive contest were not yet announced. I already lost hope... :( I was having dinner at Bigby's with my boyfriend when I checked my e-mail if the results were announced. Okay. Maybe, I didn't really lose all hope. Of course, I was still hoping. When I clicked Refresh, I literally screamed out of excitement. I WON! I was one of the winners of a pair of rehearsal tickets to BIGBANG Alive concert and Samsung Galaxy S3 Back Cover (I want an S3 so I could use the cover. Gift, anyone? Haha). It was really an answered prayer.Thank you, Nuffnang! Thank you, Mom and Dad! Thank you, Lord! :)

OCTOBER 24, 2012 

PRE-CONCERT


At around 6 in the morning, I left for Manila. The plane arrived around 9, I think? Not sure. Not even important. Haha. I had breakfast with my Dad. Seafood! We, then, went to SM MOA Arena just to check out the place. I got so excited when I saw the tent for Official YG Merchandise was being put up! Ahh! I was so excited to buy the studded Alive Tour Shirt.

Anyway, I bought some things in MOA so I went back to the arena around 1 in the afternoon. As expected, there were a lot of VIPs walking around wearing crown headbands which looked so cute. :) Some VIPs were also giving away gold ribbons to be used during the 'Heaven' performance. :)


GOLDEN RIBBON AND SALAMAT BANNER

There were also different booths - Jeju Air, Samsung Galaxy, BigbangPH and the Official Merchandise tent. I never got to line for the Jeju Air booth. I don't know why. Maybe, I was too preoccupied with the merchandise. Haha. 


I also bought two Bigbang shirts.









 After buying two shirts and saying goodbye to my savings (*sob), I met up with the Nuffnang representative to claim my awesome prize. :D Thank you, Sir Aj and Nuffnang for the tickets and for the back cover :)



Here are some close up photos of the back cover. So pretty~




And here's a photo of the rehearsal tickets.



The staff let us in for the rehearsal at around 4 o'clock in the afternoon. They took our tickets and gave us orange bands and a VIP Rehearsal Pass ID (we returned it after the rehearsal. Boooo! I wanted it as a souvenir). 




REHEARSAL

When we were just outside the arena doors, the music began playing. Everyone screamed and got excited. When they finally opened the doors, we all got excited. But too bad they didn't allow us to take pictures. :( The members went out the backstage one by one. TOP was the last one to show up. He was on the blinged Segway (YES! IT WAS SPARKLY AND PRETTY). He was circling at the back like he was really enjoying his time with the Segway. The best part of the rehearsal was when Taeyang was just in front of us. I could touch him if not for the bouncers. That was the moment that kept on repeating in my head. I was finally able to see all 5 of them, especially Taeyang, up close. But the member who caught my eye was Seungri. He was so handsome and he had this certain charm and appeal to him. Maybe it was the way he dressed. But he definitely messed up my bias list. He may be on the same rank as Taeyang. Omo~! Daesung really had that smile that could also make you smile. His smile was contagious. He looked so happy whenever he waved at us.  When the rehearsal ended Taeyang said "GET OUT!" but of course he did it with his cute smile. We were about to leave when GD said "Salamat" (Thank you) and "Ang ganda mo" (You're very pretty). He was so kawaii when he said it. ^_^

PRE-CONCERT/POST REHEARSAL

I got my blue bangle from Samsung at around 6 in the evening. The best thing about it is that it lights up. Perfect for the song 'Blue'. I also had my picture taken but I don't know what happened to that photo. :(




 "BRINGING BIGBANG..."


 "...TO YOUR GALAXY"


Waiting for the gates to open was the most tiring and annoying part. The line was so long. I don't even know if it's called a line. More of a sea of people. They opened the gates late and everyone was supposed to be in that sea of people even if you have a ticket for reserved seats. 






The concert was supposed to start at 8 in the evening and we were still outside the arena. I seriously do not know what they were thinking. It was very congested. We were body to body with other VIPs. My face was almost touching another person's face. There were also those people who were already pushing their way in. But I couldn't blame them. WE WANTED TO SEE BIGBANG PERFORM! We were already shouting "Pasok na! Pasok na!". When we finally came through the see of people, there was another line before we could get in. When we entered the arena, we could already hear BIGBANG performing. Most of us were not able to see the members come out of the capsule. I missed their 'Tonight' performance. That was really disappointing on the organizers' part. T_T

CONCERT OF THE KINGS AKA THE BEST CONCERT EVER!

When I entered the arena, they were already performing 'Hands Up'. I was still very frustrated that I wasn't able to see the intro but when I finally saw them, I just felt really happy. I cried. I've always wanted to see them perform live and I was finally able to do that. They looked so good on the stage. Their energy was so HIGH, HIGH which definitely made the concert FANTASTIC BABY. I don't know the exact sequence of the songs they performed but every performance was great. 





Seungri was also really cute when he taught us a few steps of the Fantastic Baby dance. The maknae was really charming and was loved by all during the concert. VI PANDA~


During their 'High, High' performance TOP was marching like a girl. He was imitating the female dancers. Haha. When Taeyang had his solo performance, I was screaming despite having a sore throat. He first sang 'Only Look at Me' and when the intro for 'Wedding Dress' played, I had goosebumps. That's my favorite song from his album. He really dances so well. My eyes were fixed on him. Just when the song was about to be finished, he tore off his clothes!!!! THE CROWD WENT WILD! His body is just perfect. Sigh~




When Bigbang said goodbye after their last song, the crowd kept on chanting "WE WANT MORE! WE WANT MORE!". And yes, we got more!!!




Video taken by Seungri then GD (Source: Youtube)

For me, if I had to choose the best part of the concert, it would be the encore.  Bigbang was so wild on the stage. They were running and jumping everywhere. I really like the part when GD poured water on Daesung's head then Daesung whipped his hair. They were really comfortable on stage. Playing like kids. :D Someone also threw a stuffed panda when Seungri was near them. Seungri picked up the stuffed panda and played with it for a while then placed it at the center front of the stage. TOP was also filled with energy. He was dancing everywhere. ^_^ For the second time around, Taeyang took off his clothes and threw it at the audience. OMG! Whoever got it is really lucky. *envious* GD also threw something at the audience - his jacket. OMO!! The girl who got it/fought for it is really luck. *envious again* The members were also splashing water at the audience. It was really wild. TOP was also wearing a cute pink ribbon headband. Why is he still handsome even if he wears girly things? Oh TOP~ 

It was really a night to remember! :D I can't wait for them to return to the Philippines for another concert. :) I didn't get to take pictures during the concert because I used up all my camera's memory for videos. T_T Anyway, credits to the owner of close up photos. :)

Fruity Nail Art

This is a very delayed post. I was sick for a few days. :( I had a bad sore throat. I wasn't really feeling well. Anyway, here's a "fruity" nail art to make me feel better. Haha. Because fruits are rich in vitamins. :P

I got a package weeks ago from KKCenterHk. They were really nice to sponsor me some nail art goodies. I was supposed to make a post weeks ago but I got busy and I got sick. Finally, I now have time to blog about these awesome things. :)

Review: Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus

Weeks ago, I've been reading a lot of good reviews about Majolica Majorca's Lash Expander Frame Plus. I, then, decided to try it myself. I purchased it from Japanichi for Php 650 + free shipping. When the package arrived after 3 days, I was really excited to try it out. 

Here's my review on the mascara...



The item arrived safely in its original packaging and, of course, it was sealed.

Circle Lens Review: Vassen Color Cloud Nine in Blue

Hey there! I'm here with another circle lens review. Yaay! Shoppingholics.com was very kind to send me these lenses. It's the Vassen Color Cloud Nine. They arrived in less than 2 weeks plus they have a very nice customer service. :) Anyway, I've never worn blue lenses before so I was very excited to try them. 

Now on to the review...

Samsung Makes BIG BANG ALIVE

When YG announced that Big Bang will have a concert here in the Philippines, I literally cried. All VIPs want to see their oppas sing and dance. For me, it doesn't really matter if I'm seated in front or at the back, for as long as I can see them perform live, I'm already happy. But of course, I'm not a hypocrite. If given the chance, I would want to sit in front and see them up close or even hold their hand. Gaah! I think I'll have a heart attack when that happens. Or maybe I'll just cry. 

Ever since I was a fan, I've been buying their albums especially their concert albums. I would put the DVD/CD on the player, sit in front of the television with my Big Bang crown lightstick and my YG cape, and scream as if I'm really watching the concert live. My mom and my sisters would just laugh at me.

When the details for the concert were finalized, I was bummed. The schedule is two months before my board exam. I had to make a painful decision of not going to the concert. Yes, I know it might sound too much but it was really painful. *sobs* I can't see Taeyang! T_T 

However, just when the thought of going to the concert was about to be forgotten, I received an e-mail from NuffnangPH. My heart literally skipped a beat. I finally have the chance to see my oppa! Nuffnang is my fairy godmother! Haha.

Whew~! That's was a long introduction. Now for the Samsung Galaxy SIII that fits my boys (haha! I'm selfish. I want to own them. I did another Big Bang nail art just for this ^_^).... 



I'm going to start with the leader, GD/G-Dragon/Kwon Jiyong. I chose the color Garnet Red. I associated the color with his hair and his personality. When he colored his hair red, he was really cute and, at the same time, fierce. Even if he is not the oldest in the group, he is really fit to be a leader. During his scandal issue, the VIPs were really sad. GD said sorry for that. What really touched me was when he saw that as something positive, something which bound the group again. Garnet Red also suits him because his name says 'dragon' and dragon breathes fire. Haha. I know that's shallow. ^_^



Next member is Taeyang/Sol/Dong Young-bae (aka the love of my life. haha I'm that addicted). For him, I chose the color Titanium Grey. My reason for that is really simple. Taeyang really looks very classy especially when he wears a vest and in his MV of the 'Wedding Dress' he did wear a vest and he looked OH SO FAB! Just like the color Titanium Grey, Taeyang can look simple but still has a lot of appeal. Anyway, I just realized when I was typing this that 'Titanium' and 'Taeyang' both start with letter T. Destiny! ^_^ Again, I'm being shallow. Haha.

NEXT STOP...TOP!

TOP, also known as Choi Seung-Hyun, is the man with a stare that can make you melt. He was ranked in a poll as THE sex god (of all kpop beauties) and he hasn't even taken off his shirt. His reason? He only wants to show his body to the woman he will marry. Awwwwww. That's really sweet, right? And that's the reason why I chose the color Pebble Blue for him. Not only does it suit his hair but it also suits his personality. Like the color blue, TOP is gentle and he has a lot of respect for people. He may seem harsh but he is one of those people who has a great personality. Blue also fits him because he is always dressed like a king or like royalty (blue? haha).



  
It's now time for the maknae or the youngest of the group, Seungri/V.I./Lee Seung-Hyun. The first reason why I chose Sapphire Black for him is because of him being known as 'panda'. Why? Because of his dark under eye circles and because he is really cute like a panda. :) Seungri is the funniest of all members. He always jokes around like a kid. Maybe because he's still young. Sapphire Black also suits him because, though he is young, he keeps a lot of secrets. Yes, our little maknae is very mischievous. But, he's still a good maknae and follows his Hyungs.



Now for the last member, Kang Daesung also known as D-lite. My reason for choosing the color Marble White for him is because he is our smiling angel. Dae had an accident last year and all VIPs were depressed because Dae was nowhere to be seen. He was having an alone time with God and not one photo of him smiling was seen by fans. During their comeback, we were finally able to see him smiling. We were finally able to see that Daesung who always smiles. After that incident, he is now called the smiling angel. Plus, it was also very good of YG to have him wear a pair of wings when he sang 'Baby don't cry'. That song did the opposite. It made us all cry. It was really good to have him back. :)




And I'm done! Hopefully, I was able to give justice to each member and I hope you also like my nail art of each member. That's it for this post! :) Thank you for reading ^_^
