Morning Wake Up.

Since I didn't have work today, I was able to spend more time with my lil DollGirl. And I know that my sister has been really exhausted lately so I wanted to help her out...and I love spending time with my lil DollGirl.

Well, this little princess woke me up this morning and as always, she loves to play with my iPad...and so this time we were making faces and just having fun waiting for my sister to wake up. :)

I can never get tired of this beautiful cupcake. I love her so much. She is currently taking her morning  nap. My sister claims that she is probably going to sleep for a long time since when I come home, she plays A LOT and is so active that when she takes a nap she really does knock out.

She is such as smart lil one and I am so glad that I am in her life.

My tank top came from Taryn Kealani! She is my sister's friend and she told me about how Taryn made these elephant tanks to support her trip to Thailand...for a good cause. But my tank came in...so did my sister's and DollGirl's. But I'm kind of sad because the sizes run on the bigger size...and so I instead of getting an extra large, I should have gotten a large...the size the my brother got for his wife was big enough for him to wear...so we took these pictures. :)

Now my lil DollGirl and I can match. :) Is that a little bit corny?! :) *laughs*

I like our tops. And I love this little DollGirl. :) 

Thank you Taryn! :)

Birchbox July 2014: Power Up.

I got my Birchbox today! Yay! :)

Birchbox is a beauty subscription box that is $10/month. I highly recommend you subscribe to this box subscription if you like to expand your experimentation of beauty care products. And I have to say that since I have been subscribed to this box, it has not been all sugar and spice, but I have found plenty of new beauty care products that I've liked an added to my collection. If you would like to subscribe to this box, please click here and enjoy! :)

This month my box came a pretty light blue polka dot box. So cute. :)

Well, I see that they teamed up with Women's Health this time...how fun! :) I can't wait to see what they did in collaboration.

I love it! Again..a box in a box. And super fun looking! 

This months theme is Power Up...and it looks really healthy looking...and I really am digging the blue tissue they used! But I still love how there is pink there. :)

So here is the card of the items that I got. And look at there! I have a beauty extra! :)

So, this is what I see when I take everything out. I am actually kind of excited for the free subscription that I saw in there! :)

This is little booklet is filled with "bite-sized challenges"...I think that it would be fun to go through.

Just looking at the first challenge I like it already. "Write it down: Keeping a workout log is like a written pat on the back. See how far you've come, recommit to your routine, and motivate yourself to keep pushing." 

On the back it gives you tips on how you can do the challenge. And look at the little box that you can check off if you did the challenge. I think I will go through this booklets and do some of the healthy challenges. Pretty cool if you say so myself. :)

Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream. I can always use extra shaving cream. :)

Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream. Oh, this one is good...I can always use a good eye cream. 

Real Chemistry Luminous 3-Minute Peel. I have never used anything like this before...but I can always try this out. 

...and this is what I'm excited for! I will definitely be filling this out and sending it in tomorrow. :)  A one-year subscription to the Women's Healthy Magazine. :D

100% Pure Gingerade Shower Gel (Honey Cream Wash)...not too hot on foil sample, but I can use these samples when I travel. 

Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Palatte Set. I adore the colors! And I know for sure that I will use this!

Overall, I am very happy with my box this month. Loved everything (although not to hot on the foil samples...but I'd still use it. :))

Late Night Nails.

When I checked my instagram when I got home from work, I saw that Passion Roots had tagged me in this nail video and a suggestion that that should be my next nail inspiration. So I decided that this would be a good time to re-design my nails and use my new nail polish that I got in my Ipsy Glam Bag this month. So here is what my nails are for the next week.

I think that they turned out very satisfying. Not a design that I would do on my own, but a interesting and easy design.

As for the Nailtini: Straight up Color Nail Lacquer; color: Mango Rita...I'm not a big fan. The color worked out with this design. (Pink and Black are my two "go-to" colors). Maybe I got a faulty bottle, but I had to put several coats (like FIVE) just so that I can get it opaque...but even so, you can see the streaks in the strokes. It also doesn't really go on that smooth either. Not a very big fan of this brand.

So here are my nails for now.

Ipsy GlamBag July 2014: Sensationally Sunkissed.

Well, I got my Glam Bag from Ipsy today...and I'm excited to see what I got this month!

Ipsy GlamBag is a beauty box subscription that is $10/month. This box is filled with beauty care products. 

Anything that is pink can (usually always) makes me smile. And I love how this subscription comes inside a bright pink bubble envelope. It's a fun surprise in the mailbox. :)

Looking inside my bright pink bubble envelope this is what I saw...more pink! :)

What I like about this subscription, is that everything comes inside a small makeup bag pouch. It's different every month...and I can always use them! If not for myself, then gifts for friends and family. :)

When I pulled everything out of my Glam Bag this is what I saw. Looks good so far! I see nail polish so that makes me VERY happy! :)

Hang Ten: Dark Tanning Oil SPF 08. This is something that I most likely NOT use. Only because I live in a place where I have no problem in tanning and I do have a permanent tan because I'm always at the beach. So I will most likely give this away...

Clear Clinic Laboratories: Vanished Clear Spot Treatment. I wouldn't mind trying this out. I have my share of breakouts and that would be amazing if I can put something on my breakouts that would help them.

bareMinerals: 5-in-1 BB Advanced Performance Cream Eyeshadow Broad Spectrum SPF 15. I've already tried this sample...and I love it!

Nailtini: Straight Up Color Nail Lacquer (Mango Rita). Well, I am excited that I got nail polish, but this isn't really my color. 

I like the more bright and loud colors...but I can use this polish as a base color. I have read high reviews of this brand of polish...so hopefully I will like it. 

Elizabeth Mott: Tints & Sass. I am actually super excited to try this tint. I have used lip stains before...but I'm excited to try this one. It smells amazing that's for sure! :) Like cherries.

So here are all the things that I received in my Ipsy glambag. Oh! And how can I forget?!?

This is the bag that they all came in! It's pink and so girlie! I love it! I am pretty sure that I will find someway to put this in good use. :)

Working in a preschool setting, it can get very stressful...so I am very thankful for my first job of working as a wedding designer. I love both jobs so much...and I love working with flowers. Today I worked at the studio and it was pretty busy, busy...not as busy as the month of June...but busy all the same.

At the studio we each have our own pail to keep our floral scissors and everything else...today when I came in, look what was placed on top of my pail. 

It was a good surprise. :)

Aubrey's Rainbow.

It was about to redo my nails...and so I asked this darling lil girl at my preschool what she wanted me to paint my nails...and she said that she wanted rainbows. They usually ask for rainbow. :) So I went online to find some inspiration on my nails...and here is what I decided to do.

I think that it turned out pretty cute. I can't wait to show Lil' Aubrey tomorrow. I hope she likes it as well. :)

About me.

Today my friend Ashley tagged me in this thing on instagram...and she told me that since she tagged me, I had to do it myself. I know that I didn't have to...but I thought that it would be fun. So basically,  you have to take a selfie of yourself, and then post it on your instagram. On the inscription below, you have to write 20 random facts about yourself. I'm not a big fan of taking selfies of myself...and so instead of writing the facts on the bottom...I placed the facts over my picture...but you can still see me. :)

Hair Cut.

I did it! I really, really did it...and wow...I got my hair cut at a salon! I have never had my hair professionally cut...well, no I take that back, I did get my hair cut in the Phililppines...but then that was a horrible experience because it really wasn't that professional, because they never listened to me...when I told them that I wanted only 2 inches cut off...they cut of TWO FEET! So, that didn't really count. My sister talked me into going to her hair stylist...and so I went to Salon 808 and got my hair cut by Kat. And I love it. It's a lot different feeling...my shortest layers are a lot shorter than I've ever had my hair since I was like 7 years old...but it's all good. I like my long layers. :)

And even Starbucks spelling my name wrong couldn't get me down. :)

Happy Independence Day!

I came to my sister place to celebrate our independence day...and I had so much fun! This little monkey decided to wake me up by jumping on me and telling me that she wanted her "vitamin."

So, there she is eating her vitamin. Isn't she the cutest thing ever! :)

Her hair is growing SO long! And even though it was super early in the morning, I really don't mind her waking me up because she is my favorite alarm clock. :)

While we were wanting for everyone to wake up...she decided to go shopping with her tiny shopping card...then she wanted to sit in it. Made me realize how big she has gotten...she use to fit in there comfortable...now she looks smushed...my lil DollGirl is getting so big now! :)

I love watermelon. Cold, cold watermelon...it was so yummy on this hot, hot day. 

And here is Kuya Neal about to eat his literal half of watermelon...

...and here is DollGirl...enjoy the slip n' slide that we had out. We actually used this very same slip n' slide for DollGirl's 1st birthday! I can't believe that she will be 2 next month already! Wow! :)

The kids had fun; the adults had fun; and it was an amazingly fun day. :)

Happy Independence Day, America! :)
