Life Recently #5

We went to a trip in the country side. This photo reminds me so much of The Walking Dead and Taylor Swift’s song Out Of The Woods

Christmas is my favorite season ever! Here’s the gigantic Christmas tree at the mall. I love them so much that we have 4 of them in our house alone

This photo was taken by my younger brother during our dinner date with my mom. It feels so good to be with my family. They’re my everything. Wish my dad’s here for Christmas.

Ordered a Filipino dish named sinigang and this back ribs! Yummy in my tummy!

Had a date night with my little cousin Gunner! He’s like my little brother already. Took him to the toy store and asked for a Nerf gun. No wonder he loves guns so much. He lives up to his name.

There’s nothing more comforting than a cup of hot holiday edition hot latte and a cheesecake on a rainy day.

Makeover Using GlamST App

befunky_artwork.jpgI gave myself a makeover! You might think I used makeup at first did you? Well it’s not. I used a new app called GlamST! It’s an app where you can try different kind of makeup products virtually through your phone. This app is so easy to use. All you have to do is to upload a selfie of you, adjust your photo and click on a look you like from the choices below.  It could be trendy, sexy, edgy, glamorous, hipster or fresh. Each category has different makeup looks that you can choose by just swiping.

You can also choose from celebrity’s makeup. Get the look that you want that’s similar to your fave celebs’ and you’ll know which makeup to buy to get that look. You can even know how much money you’ll spend to get the whole look.

This app isn’t just a virtual makeup tester but it can also be used as a makeover! You can’t even tell it’s just virtual makeup. It looks just as real! Choose one look and upload it in your social media like you just got a makeover from a salon.

Here’s the look I made for Elle Fanning.

My Christmas Wish List

Christmas Wish

When someone asks me what I want for Christmas, I often answer them with a shrug or an ‘”I don’t know”. That’s honestly the first thing that comes into my mind. When I really think about it though, there are tons of things I want to have but I don’t really mind not getting it at all. However, this is a Christmas wish list post so let me just take this opportunity to say the things I want to have. Most of these things are expensive but who knows right? At least I said it. :p A girl can dream.

DREAM CREAM BY LUSH// I have eczema and KP and I’ve been searching for products that can soothe my skin well. I’ve stumbled across this one and I’ve heard nothing but good reviews from people with sensitive skin like mine. The ingredients are all natural so it’s also a plus.

DAISY BY MARC JACOBS// I’ve been wanting this fragrance for like, forever. I once saw it at the mall and I don’t know why I didn’t buy it. ugh. I still want it though.

JOURNAL// As some of you may know, I enjoy writing a lot. From poems to proses to journal entries. I already own a black journal but the size is small for me so I want one. I prefer the pages to be kind of thick where I can paint on it.

NAKED 3 by URBAN DECAY// I’m a huge fan of the Naked Basics palette. It’s my go to eyeshadown whenever I want to wear some. This new set of palette though has shimmery colors which are good for evening looks.

ANKLE BOOTS BY RIVER ISLAND// I want to own this kind of boots. It’s not necessarily this brand but I really like this style. Might need this too if I travel to colder places.

MACBOOK AIR// Now this is really impossible. lol. Anyway, I own an older Macbook now and it’s kind of heavy. Knowing that I’ll study abroad soon, I think I’ll need a faster and lighter laptop where I can carry it everywhere.

NIKE ROSHE// I really am out of shape at the moment. I don’t know why I’m not so motivated. When I got my latest trainers, I got motivated to run every afternoon but one day, the routine just stopped. Maybe if I can have these, it will motivate me again. :D

I don’t really expect any gifts this Christmas season especially the ones on the list. Simple things like a card, chocolates or something that I really need is enough to make me feel happy. It doesn’t even have to be something that can be seen. But if ever I get one of these wishes on my list, I’d be really really grateful! *wink ;)  haha.

My Reading Habits Tag

I love reading books so much especially on the Young Adult genre. I stumbled upon this tag on Bethan’s blog and I think it would be fun to do this since I absolutely love reading. You can do this if you want to!

Do you have a certain place at home for reading?
I usually read laying down like on my bed or on a sofa when I’m at home. For some reason, my back hurts if I sit while reading for a long period of time.

Where do you like to read?
My bedroom is my reading place when I’m at home but sometimes I read on the dining table, on the living room or when I’m outside, I usually read on a nice, quiet coffee shop.

Bookmark or random piece of paper?
Bookmark if I have one but I usually lose it so I’ll say, a random piece of something. Lol.

Can you just stop reading or do you have to stop after a chapter / certain amount of pages?
I usually stop at the end of the chapter. It’s easy for me plus I just couldn’t put it own without finishing the whole chapter. It just feels incomplete.

Do you eat or drink while reading?
It depends. I would usually munch on some chips but sometimes I would rather concentrate on the book I’m reading.

Music or TV while reading?
A total no for me. I find it as a distraction. If it’s a song I know, I would probably sing along to it or hum the tune so nope, can’t do these all at once.

One book at a time or several at once?
Definitely one book at a time. If I enjoy reading the book, I would finish it without putting it down plus I can’t stand just leaving a book like that. I wouldn’t remember it if I read another book. In some cases that I don’t like it though, I stop reading it and move on to the next one. I won’t bother finishing it.

Reading at home or everywhere?
I would rather read at home where I can put my whole focus on it. I don’t mind reading inside the car though. It saves me from boredom. At coffee shops, books are the perfect companion especially when I’m alone. It makes you feel not alone.

Reading aloud or silently in your head?
I read silently in my head. I find it tiring to read the whole book aloud plus you might distract others. I read aloud if I’m in the mood to read a poem or when I’m acting out the conversations.

Do you read ahead or skip pages?
Nope. I couldn’t afford to miss even a single word.

Break the spine or keep it like new?
I just keep it as it is. I don’t put plastic cover on it, I don’t break the spine either. It depends on how I use it. The more messy looking it is, the more I read it.

Ebook or paperback?
Honestly, I’d rather choose Ebooks. I can read it when the light is out on my tab or on my phone plus I can carry it anywhere and I don’t have to wait for the physical copy in my bookstore.

Do you write in your books?
I highlight the quotes I like. I do it on both paperbacks and ebooks.

Who do you tag?
I tag everyone who loves reading! I would love to read your answers! :)
