Review + Swatch: Avon Ultra Moisture Rich Lipstick (Rose Lipstick) and Holiday Collection make up palette

June 20, 2013


A Review on the products I got from AVON last year December 2012.
This post was sitting on my drafts for quite some time already. And here, finally I am posting them on my blog .This is a scheduled post by the way =)

I bought these items at my own expenses solely for review and have not been paid for by AVON.
So, Let's get started! ............


*sorry for the poor image quality. i am using my samsung camera. the old model. I hope to get a much better camera in the future though.. Wink! =)




The packaging:

  What I love about it is that it comes in a dainty and clear cover so you can actually see the colors (eyeshadows and blush inside). It also comes with an applicator and a blusher brush. 
What I don't Like: it has no mirror into it. So you have to use a separate mirror for you to view your eyes/face in every application. It is quite big and bulky to fit in my travel kikay kit. You might need a larger kit to store it. And also, the product can get shattered easily if you drop it so it takes extra care in handling it.

The Swatch:
It is not so clear here in the photo but the colors are really great. Perfect for blending. =) I love it.

Wedding 101: How to design a Brooch Bouquet

June 13, 2013

We are planning to tie the knot and I simply couldn't resist carrying this down the aisle. This is a repost from fancypantsweddings.com . I can't wait to create my own and post it as a DIY right here on my blog. But for now, here are the steps in creating it.
Brooch bouquets are amazing for so many reasons.  Let me count the ways: they are sparkly, they make meaningful keepsakes after the wedding, they are sparkly, you can use jewelry from family members and carry a bit of them with you down the aisle, you make your brooch bouquet well in advance of the wedding, you never have to worry about it not holding up throughout the day and they are sparkly.
Making a brooch bouquet is quite the DIY project!  It takes patience and creativity.  But it is a worthy endeavor.  Especially when you are ready to walk down the aisle carrying a beautiful brooch bouquet of your own making.
