Lancôme 2012 Fall Collection: Midnight Roses

With a 75-year heritage of developing outstanding make-up and skincare products, Lancôme is an international beauty pioneer. Founded in 1935 by Armand Petitjean, the name Lancôme was inspired by the ruins of a castle, Le Château de Lancosme, and the wild roses that grew in the grounds are referenced in the label's motif, a single golden rose.

Ambitious to carry le chic beyond French borders, Petitjean created outstanding Lancôme skincare, fragrance and cosmetic ranges which became the beauty products of choice for film stars of the time. Lancôme's success continues today, with make-up bag musts such as Hypnôse Mascara and the iconic Juicy Tubes worn by a glittering line-up of brand ambassadors. If you know Michelle Phan, then you can be so familiar with this brand.

In case you didn’t know, Michelle Phan is a beauty guru on youtube and a brand ambassador of Lancôme Paris. Honestly, almost all of her Lancôme sponsored videos impressed me. She just did a really prodigious job in creating different looks with different Lancôme products. I mean, yes you make numerous make-up looks with an abundant supplies at hand but only few can create the great ones. And here are the 2 Lancôme videos of Michelle that I really love. Just 2 words: Simple and Elegant.  (Click here and here!)

DIY Anthro Strand Necklace


1 1/2″ Wide Ribbon – 3 1/4 yardsStringing Cord, Small Glass Beads, Large Round Beads – 5/8″ (any type), Crimp Beads – 20, Jump Rings – 6, Thread
Start by stringing your beads. Cut an 11″ piece of stringing cord.  Thread beads onto the cording – it will help control the cording if you thread the loose end through a needle.
Continue threading beads until your cord is about 8 inches. Finish the cording the same way you did the other end, with a crimp bead and jump ring. Cut your cording so you have about one inch left and feed that back through your beads.
Continue adding strands and beads until there are five strands on the jump rings.

Make a second group of five strands.  Link the two strand groups together with a single jump ring on each end. It might seem to have made more sense to added all the strands to one large jump ring but I was afraid that they wouldn’t lay straight – that all those loops on one ring might be too much.
Cut your ribbon into four 28″ pieces. Turn up one end of each of the strips and sew the edge down to hem it, about 1/4″.
Turn the strips right side out.  Press the strips lightly.
Push the ring and strands into the casing so it begins to fold over itself. Work the strand into the casing so the ring is about one inch in. Insert the needle into the casing and bring it out at the point of the hem and ring.
Make a few stitches sewing the ring and hem in place. Knot and clip your thread.
Make a knot in the ribbon casing so that it covers your stitching.
Push one of the beads down that are in your casing already up against the knot. Tie another knot on the other side. Repeat for the last bead. So you should have three knots and two beads between them.
If you’d like the necklace a bit longer, you can just knot the end. I like it shorter so I tied a bow.
Tada! Your Anthro Necklace is finish!

Shoe Revamp: Comic Book Shoes


Mod Podge, Shoes, Paintbrush, Comic book, Scissors, Newspaper or cardboard


1.  Cut out your favourite scenes from your comic book.  Position them where you would like them to go on your shoes, and then cover the back of the picture with Mod Podge.
2.  Paste the comic book clipping onto the shoe, and press it down so it is smooth.
3.  Trim off any excess clipping, or fold it over the edge of the shoe.
4.  Put a layer of Mod Podge over the comic book clipping.
5.  Continue this process until the shoes are completely covered with comic strips.
6.  Once the Mod Podge has dried, apply three more layers (letting each layer dry before starting the next).

Note: This is a time consuming project.  Give yourself at least an hour and a half for each shoe.

August- September 2012 Photo Dump

I noticed that I have so much photos uploaded on my Facebook and Twitter account (If you haven't yet, please follow me, I'm begging you! lol). It is usually the daily update of my life or the things that I tripped to take a photo of. Taking pictures has been my habit and doing so is what I am just capable to do with my busy schedule since I recently got a job. Taking picture is the new blogging! I decided to post it here for the reason that I don't have an Instagram account since I don't own an iPhone, plus, I thought these photos is worth sharing here since this isn't really a blog about my personal life but a fashion slash beauty blog. Don't worry, I choose those that are worth sharing. How I wish that would be fine. Yay!

My current nails in Ash Gray. Neutral mode.
My Pinky and Glittery nails. Kikay!
New in my things: OMG nail colors in White out and Bikini, Klik nail polish in Platinum Glitter and Ashley and LDS Bear Coin Purse that I super-super love! ♥  
My first nail art ever! Shallow happiness? Maybe. I'm just proud! :)
New in my accessories: Color burst!
Nail polish I've borrowed from Ate Enei. Poor me can't afford to have them!
Arm party! Violet and Turquoise! Yay!
DIY Arm candy by me. Another proud creation, another shallow happiness. I just can't stop myself! Please bear with me. :)
My take on fishtail braid. This photo has so much in it! A fishtail braid, a pink nail, a silly face, and a shirt in violet which is the color to die for!
Unrelated picture? Sorry! They're my office snack :)
My lovely bear coin purse which I've told you I really love and my Ash gray nail. Taken from my table at the office.
New hair products to try for my dry and frizzy hair! Hope these help!
And that was probably my first photo damp! I may post more soon!

Revamp your T-shirt

Tired of wearing your t-shirt as it is? This is a new way on how to revamp your simple tee into a striking top! It will just take a couple of minutes to do!


Scissors, Pencil, Ruler, Needle and thread, Piece Ribbon, T-shirt

 STEP 1: Before we start cutting our shirt, we first measured. Measure the length and width of the hull and just think how many strips you want to cut.
STEP 2: My shirt was 55 cm long and I wanted 5 strips, every 11 cm so I put a dot down so I knew where I had to cut.
STEP 3: Decide how long you want each strip. Turn left and then right a point, so you know how far you can cut!
STEP 4: Fold your shirt in half and start cutting. Please make sure the front you do not cut it!
STEP 5: If you've cut, you do not scare if it is not as straight cut. Stretch the tip a bit, this ensures that the cut edges a little curl, now you see not that it's a bit crooked cut.
STEP 6: Take a thin ribbon (I have the piece of ribbon from my shirt which cut it in the store on a hanger is hung) and put a loose knot. Now take the ribbon that you will use as decoration. Roll it to the cut strip and determine how long it should be. Cut and sew the ribbon onto each other.
STEP 7: After you have sewn the ribbon, turn the sewn part to back so the pretty side is visible. Sew the ribbon now onto the shirt. Repeat these steps.
Tada! You have turned your boring plain shirt into a striking top! So easy right?
