what have i been doing?

I haven't been that active in blogging lately & let me tell you that i am really feeling guilty. I am just so thankful that you have still been checking my blog even if i don't update regularly. I'll make it up to you by letting you know about things that have been going on with me for the past couple of weeks.

I don't even know where to start...?
Uhhhhmmm... i guess i'll start with the recent update.

I haven't really done a lot of nail art post lately because i have been so busy & my nails are like the last thing that on my mind. But luckily, last weekend i was able to do a nail art (finally!) & here is my current mani.

I'll make a tutorial on this design within this week. And no, this is not a decal, i did this freehand so i'm sure you can also do this. I'll take single tutorial pictures right after this post. hehe

Then some things/thoughts that i want to share....
I have bought this finishing powder & let me tell you that i love love love this finishing powder!

I'll make a separate post about this but i love how this photographs really really well!
I'm sure you know what side has make-up on,right?

I decided to just do half of my face because i want to really see the difference. Oh, i use San San's Matte Liquid foundation underneath & i am liking it too! It almost looks natural on me,right?

This is how it looks on broad daylight.
I know that the color of my face looks different with my neck because my neck is actually darker but since this is just a test, i didn't bother applying it on my neck. i also didn't apply any concealer & i'm glad that this combo was able to hide my small imperfections quite nicely.

In depth review after a couple more weeks.

Then i finally succumb to the call of the brush guard...

I have been really curious about this one but let me tell you that i don't think that it really a must for me. It just makes drying of brushes really long! I guess that this is better for storage but not really for drying. Anyway, that's just my opinion.

Then last week, i was really surprised when the mailman dropped by in the evening to make a delivery!
It came from my very revered "ate"!

I wasn't really expecting anything & i was really shocked when the mailman dropped a big box on my arms. I haven't really got any packages from Japan yet but now i know that it would be delivered straight to my house so another door has opened for me.

Napajapan, i'm gonna be your future customer! hahaha

Anyway, i was so surprised with everything that i got!

Everything is an eye candy!
*looks straight at Kamenashi Kazuya*
I can't believe that they are mine!
Oh, of course i shared it with my brothers but seeing everything is just so unbelievable!
I have been singing "Run for you" ever since i got this!

Since i am already talking about this, i'll go over the Nail Up! magazine.
I only have soft copies of japanese nail art magazines from nail up, nail max & nail venus so owning one is definitely exhilarating!

Here are a couple of sample shots...

Will you all just look at the details of this nail design?

She even included the top coat that i have been searching for ever since!

Arigatou, onee-sama!
It's not a mistake that i choose '-sama' as the honorific to call you because i really look up to you.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Since we are already on the topic of nails, i'll just tell you all that i won 7th place on our group's nail art contest. Yay! So happy!!!!
(pictures taken from my facebook account)

I also attended our anniversary party where the awarding happened. It was a very memorable day!
I love my FUN group!

Did you know that you can do very detailed nail art design using a nail art fountain pen?

I tried it & it was so easy to use! I made the rose design at left part.

Another thing that was added on my things-i-wanna-own.
My list is endless!!!

Last thing that i wanna share, i have been looking for a good pair of flats that would fit my big feet & i'm really glad that i was able to find one that fits my feet snugly & comfortably.

Presenting my KIMI flats!

I bought mine at the Noel Bazaar for only Php 580 (i think?) for 2 pairs! How awesome is that?!

I'm just bummed out that Kimi is not available everywhere.

Do you know where Kimi is available?
I would love to own a few more pairs.

Well, i think this post is already too long. hahaha!
Just to let you know that i am still alive & i always read your comments.
Thanks for the blog support, sweeties!
Make sure you join my Week 6 giveaway,ok?

Hope you all are having a great day!
Jaa ne~!

Thiamere Brea said...

awww... thanks,hun!

if the difference isn't obvious i guess it just means that it almost blends perfectly on my skin so it is really good then

Thiamere Brea said...


yes,i did it by hand. i'll just try & edit my pictures later so that i can put the tutorial for this design later today or maybe by tomorrow.

Thiamere Brea said...


it might take some time before you see the effect. i saw obvious results after 2-3 months of using it. i hope that it would work on you aw well,hun
