BEAUTY // COSMETIC ESSENTIALS


"Knowing what you want exempt a person from all the pressure. Fashion and trend come and go, to have a personal style is a classic."



Cosmetics world. Make up. The second thing I enjoy applying on my face aside from skincare lately, but it all started in a bit far timeline. Lipstick and blush, a personal favorite.

While I started  taking care of my skin in early years, this lady is a late bloomer to explore and admire make up line. If I remember it right I'm in my early 30's when the fascination in the cosmetics world started. Flashback when I started working in my 20's,  I just only use lipstick to have a certain pop of color and refrain from not having a pale look, the dark shade that time is my pick and become my look for years and even typecast me with the tag; the chinky eyes with the dark lipstick.๐Ÿ˜‚ Later on, I explore more colors and became a regular usage of pink shade and added pink with purple undertones through times.


Then in just a snap while in the beauty section looking for a gift, my feet leads me to mac counter, testing lipstick and before I knew it I already purchase a travel size brushes and a blush in pinch o' peach shade. So this time the chinky eye lady learn to put color on her face aside from a glide of lipstick to finish her look.


And that's the start of my admiration to blushes. You know the term there's no such thing as too much blushes? It's a perfect caption for me, good thing I can able to control myself in making purchases. Sometimes you need to close your eyes so that you can control the urge to spend and mindset yourself that I don't need this, I have enough!!๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ ( Says no one ever๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜) 

For now I find time to use blush on a first in first out basis, though there are days I can't control and dig up new one. I learned to put note on dates for expiry reasons to avoid skin irritations. Do you? For all the make up lovers out there that seems to purchase in a weekly basis๐Ÿ˜ณ I'm curious to know, how well did you manage taking notes and letting go of the item even though it looks like new and not even hitting off the pan? 



So at this time even though it's a continuous effort to learn new tricks and techniques from make up gurus and beauty bloggers, but it's fun and I enjoy it. And I appreciate the fact that it's the different side of me, my personality that I nurture aside from being a mother. It's the little things that makes me happy. A personal matter, the girl in me, an added things that makes me in a positive thought whenever I pause the button and breath from a busy day. It's something that makes me smile and lift my moral even more, to look good and to feel good.



So mama's, what other personal matters that give you light and bring out the girl in you that help to surround yourself with all the possibility in terms of beauty and fashion?

WHAT WEEKEND BRINGS // LIFE LATELY


Hello, hello! Happy almost October month to all. How's life at you end lately? Here is a bit tad crazy and busy for the last few weeks. This mama lady is always looking forward for the weekend to breath and to have a lovely moment with the family and the husband. And who doesn't, no? Did you notice how weekend brings so much joy to our lives? It's a breath of fresh air with the family, in a different way if you feel the same way too.


Though life is a bit blur and a roller coaster ride for the last few weeks, I feel grateful that life gives consideration to balance things out. I appreciate the last two weeks that we had an out of town, braving traffic to escape, to have fun and release some tension. It's always therapeutic just to be carefree and to worry less, to enjoy and just laugh. Though it's in my personality to think hard and be serious even  in the little matters of life,  mostly I find it as an advantage and taking responsibility seriously but sometimes having those kind of traits can be exhausting at the same time. So at this moment I feel grateful to have a husband who makes life easier to handle, marriage is not always perfect, right? And if you think that in  your marriage there is a lot of things to consider beautiful and right than the negative one then  it's time to engage more and invest in it. Remember that in our latter part of life, sooner or later our children will have their own life to live and just like in the beginning it will be two of you who will be there for each other. In moments like these you will appreciate and be thankful to have somebody worthy to be at your side to live the rest of your life with.


Would love to know how does weekend help to rejuvenate you to engage for the coming week?



                                                              Happy Friday!!!



Till then,
Angie
