My 5 Fave Drugstore Lipsticks ( Fall Edition )

Nude lipsticks have been my fave to wear these past few weeks. Especially the ones with pink based. It brings little edge and somewhat feminine to it. And i think it goes with any makeup look. I normally wear smokey eyes / neutral make up on my daily basis. My picks for 5 faves drugstore lipstick in this fall season :

Left to Right :
Maybelline Color Whisper - "Oh La Lilac"
L'Oreal Colour Riche - "Fairest Nude" 
L'Oreal Colour Riche - "Tickled Pink"
Maybelline Super Stay 14 Hr Lipstick - "Beige Forgood"
Wet n Wild - "511B"

Don't they just look so beautiful? They do!
  • "Oh La Lilac" : One of my go to lipstick. Goes really sheer yet gives it true color. It has slight purple tone to its shade. It last for couple hours until you have meal. 

  • "Nude Fairest" : I would say this is the nudest shade you can ever get. I mean it. It's creamy and gives matte finish. You might disliking the strong scent that on it. I never wear this lipstick alone because the nudest pigment it gives, so i always layer it up with light pink lipgloss. For this post purpose, i wore this lipstick alone.

  • "Pink Tickled" : After application, you may find it looking like very frosty pink. And sometimes showing off more the dryness of my lips, so i always make sure i wear really good lip balm underneath. However, i love the finish look it gives on my lips. Very chic and girlie.

  • "Beige Forgood" : Definitely 100% matte lipstick. I'll never forget the very pleasant strong scent it has. It smells like fruity and doesnt bother me at all. I describe the shade as dark warm nude and when you swipe it, it's like a magic marker for your lips. And i think this one close similar to "Fairest Nude" in deeper shade version.  Pigmentation totally great but doesn't really moisturizing your lip though. Clear lipgloss over the top would be a great match altogether.

  • "511B" - This one isn't a nude lipstick like the most of i've mentioned above, but this one is my fave too during fall especially for the night out. The shade is very hot pink reminds me of barbie lips. This lipstick gives stain to your lips. It's creamy and gives slight glossy finish. And you can't beat the price for this 99cent lipstick or even less than that! I cant remember :/ 

Have any of these lippies been your fave lately? Let me know!

Recent Fall Outfits & Make Up Look

Fall season has finally here. What happened to summer that just been here? I have mixed up feeling for this transisition season, i love both of them but i wish summer could have been longer. Now is sweather weather and rocking my boots. There are some days when the weather still heating up to 80F but not so often anymore. Rencently it's been around 60F. 

My fave bottom to wear is legging or tights. They do look good together with boots. 

With legging, i love to wear it with simple top and layer it up with "long sleeve sweather"which i really love and i got it from a thrift store for really good price. It's kind of like "crop top" style in long sleeve version. 

With my tights, i worn it with  wool dress that i got from my sister long time ago. The dress is somewhat longer than i expected so i put the belt on to pull it up and make it look shorter. I find that my short profile body doesnt look good with longer dress that reach to my knee length. 

You know that i cant go anywhere without my purse. Lately i worn my leopard purse alot that i got from Boscovs for $20, yes what a steal! The pattern is so bold enough to balance out the outfit. And my boots is from TjMaxx and the color match well with the purse. 

Onto the makeup, just light smoky eye make up with nude lipstick that has pink base to it for daily basis. Mostly my everyday makeup look like this.

What do you guys think? Which outfit do you like more? :)

Mississippi Road Trip - August 2013

This is a pleasure for me to share my road trip to Mississippi yet a a special reunited meeting with my big sister who i had not meet for over past 5 years. Yep 5 years. I was still in Indonesia for the 3 years ever since she left for US and then on 2011 i arrived on the land of USA at John Kennedy International Airport NY to meet the love of my life and share the lifetime with him through marriage.

Anyway onto the trip.. The vacation trip was planned to visit Canada to see Niagara Falls. And then for some reason we changed the plan and decided to go to Mississippi instead where my sister lives. The road trip took 18 hours driving. I couldnt believe we made it total 36 hours back and forth. That ammount of trip do not include stops, rests,etc. Gosh that trip exhausted me so much and of course my hubby the driver got alot more exhausted than i did.

I love Mississippi weather and places were beautiful. It was sunny everyday well actually it was rain couple times. We had great times there. We visited the ocean, explored the town and I've got to tried my first Korean dishes and i love it.

Not only that, we visited a zoo at Hattiesburg MS. I never been a fan going to zoo but that time we searched for some attraction places to visit and zoo was came up on the 1st list. I was like hey lets go to zoo tomorrow. And we did and it was so beautiful zoo. We enjoyed it. 

We had a great time afterall. Just ammount of time we had to spend on the road was kinda killing me. But we had stops quite times for each state we went through and that helped. :) But myself prefer travelling by airplane. What about u? Do you prefer travelling by airplane or roadtrip?  See you guys :)

Hair care routine and some tips!

Every girl in this planet should always taking good care of their hair. Hair brings big impact to how you look. Good hair makes you look better too ;) 

So today im going to share my hair care routine. This has been working well for 6 months and my hair keep maintained healthy. 

Before i start, may i tell you a few important tips to get your hair really healthy? 
  • Avoid washing your hair everyday. Every other day is good but the longer you survive without washing it is better, 1 - 2 times a week is highly recommended! Washing your hair is tend to dry out your scalp, so if you wash it everyday, then you dont allow your scalp to producing its natural oil which is what your hair needs : some moisturize. 
  • Wash your hair with lukewarm to cold water. No hot water! Hot water makes your hair dry, breakage, dull, etc. And on other hand, cold water gives your hair shine and very refreshing your scalp. When you condition you hair and it comes to rinse it, cold water is the best to do it because it will lock the moisture into your hair. 
  • Don't use your hot tools really often. I know there are bunch of thermal protection in the market now, but that doesnt mean you not going to have split ends, it only help to prevent them. If you want your hair straight, after you shampoo your hair, wait until it's 50% dry, apply hair serum and brush your hair with wide tooth comb then just constantly brush them through with your finger until it almost dry. It wont be as straight as flat iron will do, but it will get little straight. And if you want your hair curl, simply section your hair into 3 , twist each of them into bun and secure it with bobby pins or with hair tie. Sleep with it and release your bun in the morning and you will have curl hair. 
  • Don't brush your hair when it's 100% wet, the elasticity your hair when is wet is low which the brush will cause breakage very easy.  When it's dry the ability of your hair to be strecthed is pretty good. 
  • Surely, drink alot of water, it's very good for hair, skin and your body! 
Alright into the hair care items now..
My Shampoos & Condioner :

  • Rusk Sensories Cure Shampoo "Green Apple and Tea Tree Oil" (Anti Dandruff Shampoo) - i have a yuck dandruff scalp :(
  • Neutrogena Shampoo Anti Residue formula - if you use alot of hairstyling products like mousse, gel, bunch of hairspray like I DO , it is good to wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo like this one. It removes all build up. 
  • Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner.
And follow with : 
  • It's a 10 Miracle Leave-in Product - spray it to my damp hair and brush it with wide tooth comb. I usually use this if im going to use hot tool because this stuff has thermal protection. 
And if i won't use any hot tool i use :

  • Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil "Extra Penetrating Oil" for dry and coarse hair - i have thick coarse hair and this gives my hair smooth feeling to it. 
Other treatment essentials :
  • It's a 10 miracle hair mask - i leave this on my hair after shampoo during shower for about 15 mins. Then rinse off with cold water.
  • Baby powder - i dont know if this one considered as "treatment" for hair but my hair tend to have some unpleasant odor on my 3rd day hair. So i use baby powder and apply it to my scalp, it absorbs excess oil and somehow get rid of the odor. Brush it through really well, because your hair will look gray (if you have black hair) after baby powder on them. 
So what do you think? And do you have some good recommended shampoo for dandruff scalp? Let me know in the comment below :)

My Pool Essentials!

I live in the private lake community housings, where there are a few swimming pools provided for its local residences. Of course this is such a good thing especially for what-to-do activities in the summer. I couldnt be thankful enough that the first pool is 3 mins away walking from my house! So, I pretty much spend my boring days in the summer time by just the pool.

Well thought to share you guys what my pool essentials isn't a bad idea.

This bag is actually was given to me by my husband's bestfriend. Thanks to her and i like the pattern. Kind of unique? ;)

Let's open what's in it.......

  • In Indonesian language - "Kain Bali" aka decorative fabric. I used fabric instead of towel to cover my pool lounge chair for most of the time. Maybe it's weird but it's alot more lightweight than towel and more handy for me to carry around. Well depending on my mood, sometimes i carry light towel. For most of the time, i don't really bothered to bring along towel because if i get wet, it usually dries up itself anyway especially in the very sunny day, it dries fast! 
  • Magazine is a must entertainment for me! 
  • My very old black flip flop. I brought this from Bali, it has been years and very suitable for just pool/beach day. 
  • Sunglasses - of course this is another must have!
  • Flowy Hat - i cant keep up staying by the pool without hat, especially when im just laying on my chair, this flowy hat protects my skin and my hair also gives me nice shade too ;)
  • Apple - a good fruit to have if i get hungry 
  • Chapstick / lip balm - moisturizes my lip, it has spf too!
  • Kabuki brush & cover girl compact powder - just in case i want some coverage on my face. I normally just go with my moisturized face only to the pool though. 
  • Victoria's Secret Bombshell body mist - i dont really want to smell like a sunscreen all over so i just spray this very lightly to my body after im done being in the water! 
  • Clean & Clear blotting paper oil absorbing - im a girl with super oily skin who doesnt want to look like a greasy disco ball on the face.
  • Bath and Body Works hand sanitizers - i always carry this everywhere i go.
  • Hawaiian Tropic Tanning Lotion & Dark Tanning Oil - in case i want to do some tanning, i got these in hand, and the oil just really perfect to moisturizes my skin and gives a very nice shine looking. 
  • Banana Boat Sunscreen SPF 30 - i want my skin to be protected, i reapply this at least every 2 hours. 
And i forgot to include these 2 items in the previous picture :/

  • My "Bubba" water bottle - love the size! i usually put water in it. A very cold one. Really really good and keep me hydrated!
  • My phone - another entertainment i can have beside magazine. Sometimes i just listening to music. 

Looks like the sunshine started to come out. Alright girls , this is the pool time for me now! :)


What do you carry along in your pool/beach bag? 

See ya! :)

June Faves 2013!

I actually have quite abit of good good stuff this time to share with you. So here it is my June Faves! Where shall we begin? 

Close up :

Okay let's begin with makeup items i found works well on me, some of them work just awesome! 
  • Sephora Mattifying Foundation - this is my first (yeah first) powder foundation! and i picked wrong shade for me actually because they didnt have lighter shade for my skin tone but since i get tanned , this works pretty good. The coverage is light on me which is what i need for summer. 
  • Tarte Amazonian Clay Bronzer - my recently new bronzer purchased in travel size and i used it alot this month. It's matte bronzer and quite pigmented. I looove bronzy looking. 
  • Cover Fx Camouflage Concealer - seriously this is amazing concealer that offers the wonderful coverage ever with very smooth finishing. It blends easily, i just absolutely love this!! 
  • "They're Real" Mascara by Benefit Cosmetic - if you're Asian, you know it's serious matter dealing with your lashes! This mascara does the job for my lashes, doesnt really make it looking like a super voluminous lashes whatsoever but it DOES bring a little life back to my lashes. I love the wand that allow you to brush your lashes either vertically or horizontally motion. Very easy to use!
  • Make Up For Ever Mist & Fix - this is basically just a setting make up spray. I like this alot , it controls my oil better and makes my make up last longer. 
Into Hair Products! 
  • It's a 10 Miracle Leave In Product : type of leave in conditioner that you spray onto your hair after washed them. Suppose to detangler any knots, acts as thermal protection and gives shine too. I love the smells!
  • Tresemme Extra Firm Control Hairspray - this is super affordable great hairspray. I does feel sticky and harden your hair when you first spray it but after a while your hair will touchable and doesnt feel as hard anymore and hold my hairstyle very good. And the size of the can is mostly bigger than any other full size hairspray brand out there in the market. 
Moving on to miscellaneous items :
  • Bath and Body Works Fresh Picked Strawberry Hand Sanitizer - this has been sitting on my makeup vanity. This smells really really true like strawberry and my hand feeling so fresh after use this. 
  • Victoria's Secret Bombshell Body mist - my most fave scent at the moment. The scent makes me feel happy and special. Now im obssessed the get the perfume from this collection.
  • Statement Necklace (peach-colored) that i got a while back at Deb store in the mall. I love this necklace so much, i use it over and over and i think it become my go to necklace. 
  • Small teasing brush (blue) - im a teasing hair freak. I love make little bump on my crown with either side or center bangs. This brush is really good makes my bump look smoother than any other brush type would make. 
  • Handbag - what should i name this handbag? i dont know. I just love this handbag, i think it's very summery and colorful. I used this alot on this month got tons of compliments every time i wear this! :) And actually i got this bag from a shoes store!
So what is your June Faves?
