Whitey White


Hello dolls,

I am happy I got to have the time to do a photo shoot after being AWOL for sometime now. It was also a good timing after we attended a birthday party of my husband's godchild that we did this shoot. But anyway, just so you know I wasn't going for that bride-ish look :) I am just so into white outfits these days and also black and white. By the way, this Michael Kors bag which I am so obsessed with is a birthday gift from my husband (yeyyy to me!)

Dress: Bershka
Shoes: Bershka
Bag: Michael Kors Hamilton 
(Saffiano leather)
Watch: Michael Kors










Thanks for droppin' by!

Trip to Rome and the Vatican

Hey guys,

After being so busy at work, I finally had a chance to take a holiday to relax and enjoy Rome and the Vatican. This trip is a celebration of me and my husband's 2nd year wedding anniversary. So I am sharing some pictures of our trip and the tourist places we visited in the eternal city of Rome. All I can say is that Rome is beautiful.
the Trevi Fountain
at Piazza del Popolo
LADUREEEEEEE macarons
the colosseum
a ridiculous 10 euro fee for a picture with this gladiator (but i did it anyway :)
entrance to the long awaited Sistine Chapel
and pictures in the Sistine Chapel was not allowed, but of course I couldn't resist myself :p this is the last painting of Michelangelo
St. Peter's Square
the square is ginormous
the best gelato I have tasted, worth the long wait in line
the balcony of St. Peter's Basilica
The altar of St. Peter's cathedral
we attended the Sunday Mass, and taking pictures while mass was ongoing is not allowed :(

MAC lipstick swatches

Hey guys,

I have been obsessing with MAC Cosmetics Lipsticks for quite some time now and I have already accumulated a number of them. So I'm gonna show them to you and I took swatches and pictures to see how it looks on me. I am hoping this could help if you wanna try any of these for yourself or if you wanna see the colour when it is swatched. Of course the look would differ from skin tone to another, but at least you will have the idea especially if you have a skin tone like mine. As for my preference, I love the Satin and Matte finishes. They are more pigmented and it stays a lot longer than the  shiny ones. But of course I also use other finishes not just as often as satin and matte.
So just bare with me because I have 14 at the moment :)
