Updated Contact Lens for Dark Eyes ++ Giveaway!

Hello! I just wanted to show you the lenses that I am currently using. I love contact lenses because they give my eyes a pop of color. My natural eye color is dark brown so every once in a while, I try to look a bit different (look better, of course!) by putting on a nice pair of colored contact lens!

My favorite shop to get colored contact lenses is! I have tried many kinds of lenses from that shop and it's nice to know that there's still a lot more to try in the future! They have a lot of nice designs, from prescription lenses to just cosmetic/fashion ones.

BDJ + Revlon Nail Party (Holiday Polish)

It's no secret that I love nail polish and nail art! That's why I always enjoy going to BDJ Nail Soiree's because they always combine things that I love : nail polish, nice people and good food!

I recently went to BDJ's Holiday Polish | Revlon Nail Party Series at the BTTC Center.

The event was hosted by nail art blogger, Ninna Dujunco. Look at her, isn't she so pretty? I saw her in person and thought she kind of looks like Janna Victoria.

I went with my friend, Flora. Andy from was there, too! My seatmates for the day!

The event was held at Serenitea, so we were also able to enjoy yummy drinks! Each of the attendees was also given a loot bag that contains Revlon nail polishes. The polishes were the ones that we used to create our own "holiday polish".

Bare nails!

So what we did was to listen to Ninna's talk. She showed us some of her Christmas nail art designs. They were all pretty! But, I heard she was asked to present really easy designs for beginners. In my opinion, though, what she showed us belong to the middle to above-average levels. But the Bellas did their best to recreate the cute penguins, Christmas trees and snowmans!

Here I am trying to help my friend, Flora, paint her nails.

Then, it was my turn to do mine. I really can't do my nails in public. When I do mine, I need a lamp/spotlight so I could see what I am doing clearly. I also need more time! hehe Have I mentioned that it takes me more than 3 hours to do my nails? I'm O.C. just like that!

We had more time so I told Andy I'd paint her nails with "G-DRAGON"! hehe Too bad we didn't have enough time to finish it and at the end of the event, she smudged the GD-Taeyang logo nails. TT

The aftermath! I feel bad that I stained Serenitea's table. I checked at the end of the event, though. I asked the lady if she was able to clean and remove the nail polish stains, she said yes! What a relief!

Thanks to Ms. Leah and to Ms. Michelle of BDJ for inviting us!

I love this photo of Andy and I!
Andy is such a nice girl! Prior to the event, Flora and I took some OOTD photos. The best lens for that is the 50mm lens, which is a zoom lens! Meaning, the view is zoomed so you can't really use it for events, unless you just want to capture the faces, or really close-up things. Andy was very kind to let me use her camera to take photos! 8 pictures on this post were from her! THANK YOU, love!

Andy also took this photo! I love these "bird cage" seats!

I really like it! Thank you, Andy, for this cute photo of me! hehehe

Here's the rest of the bloggers and Bella attendees at the nail art party! 
Were you there? Can you spot yourself in the picture? :)

It was a fun event! Looking forward to more BDJ nail art parties!

Wear your heart on your sleeve

I think one of the many sexy parts of a woman's body are her shoulders. Here's an outfit idea on how you could show off your sexy shoulders without having to wear a sleeveless or a skimpy top!

I got this top from a website called They have a lot of trendy tops and other clothing pieces but I also love that they have a lot of vintage dresses that are just so, so lovely!

Cut-out Top -
Skirt - (old from Mom)
Shoes - Parisian
Earrings - Forever 21
Bag - Mango

These amazing photos were taken, again, by my friend, Flora! It's really so much easier when someone else is taking your photos than when you just rely on your tripod and remote control! It cuts half the time! hehe 

What do you think of my outfit?


Thanks to, Flora, for the photos!

How to Remove Yellow Stain on Nails + Aqua Mineral Professional Nail Kit Giveaway!

I remember I uploaded a nail polish challenge on YouTube and people noticed my yellow nails. At that time, I used an Orly nail polish that left ugly yellow stain after I removed it. I thought people would understand the reason and my excuse for having stained nails. But no, stained nails is a no, no! It looks unflattering and really unattractive!

Orly nail polish proved to me that it really does leave yellow stain on the nails. The above photo is how my nails looked upon removing the Orly red polish. I wore them for about 3 days only but it left ugly stain as if I had it on for months! Now I remember why I stopped buying the brand. 

Good thing, I discovered a really effective way to remove the stain -- Aqua Mineral's Professional Nail Kit!

Inexpensive Christmas Gift Ideas from DIVISORIA!

Christmas season also means shopping season! And here in the Philippines, the first thing that usually comes to mind is DIVISORIA! 

Divisoria is a shopping district located in Manila where one can find assortment of low-priced goodies and bargain items. (Similar to South Korea's Namdaemun Market and Hong Kong's Ladies Market) They sell everything from apparel, accessories, fruits and vegetables, home appliances, DIY stuff, sewing materials, party favors and everything you could think of! Some people don't like going to Divisoria because it's never a piece-of-cake to shop there, really. One must be brave enough to go through the hassle of traveling all the way to Manila, the heat, the muddy streets, the hoard of people and sometimes, sad but true, snatchers and pick-pockets. If you are brave enough, you will be rewarded because you will be satisfied once you get home! With just a small amount of money, you'll be able to buy all the things on your to-buy list plus all things that you don't need but still bought anyway!

It's never too early to shop for Christmas gifts, especially if you want to avoid the Christmas rush. I went to Divisoria last Monday with my mom and my grandmother. We went on a Monday morning so the roads were passable and there weren't too many people yet. I'm so glad!

Please watch the video to see all of the items that I got from Divisoria. Believe it or not, ALL THE ITEMS inside the basket only costed Php 2,000 ~ $50! C-R-A-Z-Y! Last week, I went to the mall and was only able to buy a bag, a belt and a scarf on sale with that amount of money!

Here are more stuff you could find in Divisoria!

The bottom left are screw driver, toothbrush, syringe and a car key. But when you remove the cap, they are all apparently pens! hehe (Php 10 each)

Top let are heart-shaped sunnies. Saw the exact same sunnies at Aldo and they cost about Php 600 or more. The ones they sell in Divisoria only cost Php130! Top right are some humongous Lanzones! (Mom's hand and a coin for size reference.)

Keen-eyed EXO fans will immediately notice the WOLF 88 shirt on the top left. Top right are some funny ALVIN Klein undies. lol! I also saw a Chen T-shirt! Didn't buy! hehe

We finished shopping at around 5 PM! If you notice in the picture, people were starting to flock! One tip, though! When shopping at Divisoria, set a budget and bring a specific amount of money with just a few extra. There are lots of things that would attract your attention and the last thing that you want is to overspend, right? We only brought money we knew would be enough to buy the things that we needed and when we spent it all, we went home. My mom felt a little sad that she didn't bring extra, though, because she wanted to buy cheap fruits and vegetables. They sell them for half the price! 

As a blogger, I don't feel ashamed that I frequent Divisoria. I actually feel proud! Hah, not everyone has the guts to go there. Plus, I'm more of the "quantity over quality(price)" kind of person so I always feel satisfied when I shop there. I just hope my friends don't mind the Divisoria stuff that I will be giving them this Christmas. hehe

I hope you enjoyed this post! Let us know if you shop at Divisoria, too! Or if you want to ask questions or tips when shopping at Divisoria, simply leave a comment below and I'll get back to you when I can.

How to use OMBRE Hair Extensions

I've been dying to try ombre hairstyle but I'm afraid I would get tired of it easily or that it wouldn't match all of my clothes. I know you guys are curious about it, too! So, let me share an easy way to have ombre hair without having to go permanent!

Here's how my hair looks without the hair extensions.

I discovered some cool ombre hair extensions from (Valentine Promise) I spent a long time trying to decide which one to pick because all the extensions are so pretty! I wanted to try the blue and purple ombre combination but in the end, I settled with the brown to blonde hair extensions that would suit my current hair tone.

Check out the full details about the hair extensions HERE.

Hair Extensions details :

  • 100% Indian Human Hair
  • Product life exceeds 1 year
  • 18 clips / 8 pieces wefts
  • 20 inches in length / 160 grams in weight
  • Could be washed, ironed and styled

Play the video for the tutorial on how to put on and how to style!

Here's how I look with the ombre hair extensions on!

I love that the hair extensions were so easy to clip-in! Takes little effort to get your hair done! The clips are so sturdy to withstand pulling, ironing and washing. The hair extensions smell so good when you receive them from the mail! They don't smell like hair extensions, at all. To me, they smell like freshly washed hair using candy-scented shampoo! 

I also love that I cold have ombre hair in just a few minutes, enjoy it while I have it and take them off at the end of the day. The next day, I'm back to having my normal hair! No strings attached! hehe

If you like the ombre hair extensions that I used, please click this link for more information about it!

You could also get $10 OFF by using the code Kristine01 when checking out! Here's how!
