Unicorn Dreams achieved!

Sunday, July 9, 2017

Magical dreams do come true! Naomi and I went to visit the Rainbow Dreams Cafe in Maginhawa 2 Sundays ago and it was indeed a colorful place full of sparkles and unicorns! Since it is a Unicorn Cafe lol!





It's so dreamy! Naomi and I couldn't stop taking pictures! It was also the first time Naomi and I hung out together, just the 2 of us, outside any Kawaii PH events, she lives in Japan now but she came back for a few weeks so we decided to hang out!

The cafe was really jam packed, we had to wait for about 20 min before we could enter since there was a line, we were third in line and the cafe does not have reservations~ but! it was actually all worth it! The food tasted great, and the price is really affordable!








We ordered 2 milkshakes, pasta, rice, and dessert! Naomi got the Strawberry Cheesecake milkshake, and I ordered the Oreo Milkshake! I think it was priced around 130-150 php each, and it was a huge glass! I got the Unicorn Carbonara, and Naomi got the bbq porkchop with the cute rice! I think they're priced between 180-220 php? I forgot, but they were still pretty affordable! The strawberry waffle was 150php! It was a big share and Naomi and I had to split it since we were both pretty full! If you like sweets, you'll really love it here! Everything was sweet~


Naomi looking all adorable!



We also got the chance to wear real cute Unicorn onesies!


They let you wear one after you eat and pay for the meal, since they don't want the onesies getting dirty~ I think this is a good way to do it, after paying, you can pick a onesie and start taking photos!




This is a spot where you can take photos by the entrance! Naomi and her matching phonecase and onesie!



Thanks for taking photos of me Naomi bby!


And here's the two of us! The first photo in this post we were dabbing! lol

I also created a video/vlog of our experience!



Be sure to watch in HD for a full on experience!

What's in my Givenchy Pandora bag?

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

It's been a few weeks since my last post, and I was so busy that I only had 1 post in June! But! hopefully July will be kinder, and for that, my first post for July is my favorite kind of video to watch in Youtube, a What's in my bag post!

I've been using my Givenchy Pandora in the size mini, this is in sheep skin, washed leather, in the midnight blue color, and has gold hardware! As what the name says, it looks like a box, hence the name Pandora's box, it's the smallest size in this style so it doesn't have a handle, only a long strap for your shoulder/crossbody style bag!


Since it's on the sheep skin leather, it looks wrinkled, but that adds to the uniqueness of the bag apart from the shape, which is one of the reasons why I love it so much!



It has two zippers, the bottom zipper is the pocket, and the zipper for the main compartment! I attached a really cute COACH black leather tag with a vintage Mickey Mouse embroidered on it! at the back of that tag it says "Disney x Coach", as an added decoration/character for the bag, I used to be addicted to Pompom's and the Fendi Monster keychain, but I'd like to keep my things more simple now~


Starting with the pocket, I usually keep just a few things on there, like my Car/house keys, and a pack of Wet tissue! I never leave the house without Wet tissue because in the Philippines, a lot of the public restrooms are not super clean... and my keys because... duh! lol


Now on to the main compartment...


I've been recently using small wallets because I find the long wallets really bulky, I asked my mom if I could have her old Louis Vuitton wallet since she hasn't used it in like 2 years I think?? and she said yes! So I'm pretty happy! I just keep my debit/credit cards and cash in the wallet. And on the Kate Spade leather card holder, I keep my office and access ID, my insurance cards, and my Driver's License.


I also keep a gadget pouch where I keep my iPhone cord, earpods, and portable charger! I got the portable charger from MINISO and this is really cheap! but it charges my phone fast and up to 2 times! it's also sleek and light! I use a worn out Kate Spade leather pouch that's also light to carry.


I just use this COACH white sack to put my "refreshments" in lol. I just usually bring my Maybelline light powder, my favorite lip balm BURTS BEES beeswax lipbalm with Vitamin E and Peppermint, my lip and cheek tint from BENEFIT called BENETINT, my perfumes, one is in an automizer (is that what you call it? lol) I got the bottle from DAISO so it's really affordable and it's super light and thin! easy to bring! I'm currently using the JO MALONE English Pear and Freesia, and I also sometimes bring my JUICY COUTURE perfume, not sure what the name of the scent is though, I dont bring it sometimes but this week I'll be bringing it since I'll be going out A LOT, I want to choose which scent I'll use to freshen myself up lol


The inside of the main compartment of the bag also has a zipper pocket, and 2 back pockets, these are the items I usually keep in those pockets, in the zipper pocket I keep my medicine kit and my tissue pack! On the first back pocket, I keep my Perfume Hand Cream Lemon from Artbox, because it's been pretty cold lately, I don't want my hands to dry lol, and the last thing I keep on the other side of the back pocket is the Pocketbac hand sanitizer from Bath and Body Works in the Winter Candy Apple scent!

I also keep my iPhone 7 in rosegold in the bag sometimes, but I usually carry it or have it in my pocket~


Overall this bag is the perfect size for me, it's not too small and it can fit the most essential items that I need to bring on an everyday basis!

It is pretty pricey, but it's worth the price! I'll link down the GIVENCHY website if you want to order one for yourself!

LINK: https://www.mytheresa.com/int_en/givenchy-pandora-mini-leather-shoulder-bag-766765.html?catref=category

The price is in EURO but you can convert it to either USD or PHP~ it is cheaper in this website compared to buying it from the GIVENCHY store officially, but you need an APP to access the e-store for GIVENCHY~

Thank you so much for reading!

Au revoir!

DIY: Pressed Flower Nail Art

Tuesday, May 30, 2017

It's been a while since I've done any DIY's but hooray for my first DIY this 2017! (I think lol) It's actually not 100% DIY, (but it can be if you want to) but this does save you money because this is something you can do more than once, what I'm basically getting at is, you can do your own Nail Art! (duh! lol) and what we're going to do is the popular nail trend in Japan which is Pressed Flower nails! (made from real flowers of course!)


(gawd the lighting is so awful ;A;) I did these nails and I'm actually real proud of it, lol I have really shaky hands so this was a bit of a challenge, but if you have steady hands, it will go smoothly!
I got this DIY inspo from one of my favorite youtubers: Taylor R 
(she has a lot of cute and interesting vlogs! check her out!)  

'll help you with some tips you can try that's not on her tutorial vlog~ *wink*

let's get started!



WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
 - Pressed/Dried Flowers
- Nail Cutter
- Nail Polish (color of your choice)
- Clear Nail Polish
- Scissors (optional)
-  Clipper
- Paper towel


WHERE TO GET THE FLOWERS -I ordered this set of pressed/dried flowers off of Amazon! You can also purchase them here!
But you can also just pick real flowers, make sure they're small (make sure don't just pick wherever btw, make sure you're allowed to pick if its not from your backyard or garden, ask permission!)
Once you've chosen your flowers, lay them out flat in the middle or end part of a thick, heavy magazine, leave them for a few days to make sure they're dry before you put them on your nails!

STEP 1: Choose your flowers


I went for a random look, diverse, no color coding, so any color of flower did a great job for me, I didn't stick to a them for a spontaneous look, but of course feel free to do whatever you like!

STEP 2: Cut them up real nice and small and lay the Paper towel




 This is where you make sure that the pieces are small, fit the style you want, and of course fits your nails! Lay the paper towel because they're gonna be easier to grab using the clipper or your fingers, whichever works best for your of course, you can also opt to use scissors to cut the stems out, but I just used my fingers to do it, I'll be sharing an important tip later on to carefully remove the stems and for me, it was easier!

STEP 3: Paint your nails


This would actually be STEP ONE if you chose to use a colored nail polish as your base/background for the flowers, but in my case, I just used a clear polish (since I'm no good  at applying colored polish). I just added pink tint using cuticle remover and coated my nails with a clear polish! they're going to be your glue!

STEP 4: Create the pattern/Stick the flowers


While the clear polish is still wet, I added the flowers to my desired style one by one using the clipper! after having them stick to the nail, coat another layer of clear polish to lock the flowers in or at least coat until you feel comfortable that they're secured.

TIP: Use the nail cutter to cut the stems once they're on your nails!



In this photo, you can see that I made like a flower crown style, but still had the stems popping out, so what you do, is you take a nail cutter, cut them carefully like you're cutting your nails, but make sure you don't get your real nails if you want them longer for this nail art look.


And voila!



here's what my hand looked like! (left and right)\

I didn't really follow any patter at all! I just loved the flower crown look on my nails, so mostly I did used that style more than once, but it's up to your how you want to showcase your nails with this lovely style!

And that's it for this DIY/Tutorial! 

It's simple and pretty self explanatory but I hope you enjoyed it!
