Laine Blogger Award

I got nominated for the Laine Blogger Award by the sweet Marienni Thank you so much!! :D

The Rules:

Tag the blogger who awarded you.
Answer the 5 quiestions below
Award the Laine Blogger Award to 5 of your favorite bloggers.

1. What is your current beauty obsession?

Trying to wear less foundation so I'm really serious about all my skin care ( read here ) so my skin stays nice.

2. What is one beauty item you wished you owned?

Hmm I'm quite content with the things I have. Before I wanted a Clarisonic but I find my cheap $5 battery toothbrush works wonders so no need to spend more!! :D

3. What is your favorite post to read/write about?

Anything that's visual, I like to read something that has lots of pics to illustrate it. Pictures make it more appealing and interesting to me, but sometimes the content alone is enough, I guess it depends on the topic.

4. What inspired you to become a blogger?

I write a personal journal every single day (the old school way in a notebook and yeah I like to draw in it so it's appealing and easy to the eye as well lol :D) so I thought it would be fun to have a blog to share some of the things I like. So i guess I got inspired by myself lol

5. What nail polish are you wearing right now?

Right now it is Wet n Wild Wet Cement (sorry no pics since the polish is chipping >.<) but i'll change it later for black so I'm ready for Halloween :D

Ok now time for my favorite bloggers :D (no particular order)



Coveted Dreams

Dip-Dip and The Bridge


Please check them out! Their blogs are great, you'll enjoy them as much as I do! :)

King Rusty's frustration!

The weather was pretty nice lately not so cold :) I was able to wear a jacket here and there maybe a beanie and scarf nice weather for fall clothes! ... but that was until Wednesday (>.>) It started to snow so it got cold pretty fast! Snow usually starts in mid November so it was quite drastic :(

Today I had plans with King Rusty, we were going to go play at the park but everything is covered with snow and since it happened so suddenly I wasnt able to get him a new winter jacket and boots so his cute pawns don't get too cold therefore no play day for him :(


I found King Rusty in his favorite spot of the house  looking outside...

It seemed like he knew that our play date was off thanks to the snow :(

How sad to see him disappointed! I know he wanted to play in the park but he's getting a little sick because of this crazy weather so going outside is a big NO NO :(

Poor boy but I can't let him get a cold! His health comes first! So I told him I will play with him inside all he wants :D

He looked outside once more with a disappointed face ...

And laid down looking all so sad. (ToT)

Is it snowing where you live? If you have a pets please make sure they are warm and protected before going outside! :)

Now I'm off to play with the King of the House! :)

Learning the hard way

King Rusty wants to play the whole time :) so we played like always but he wasn't satisfied just yet but I needed to take a shower.
I told him "after my shower we can play all you want, just give me a few minutes :D"
And so I went to take my shower.
After that I went to the living room and I found this horrific scene!!

Oh no!! He chewed the whole box of  pencils my mom got!!
I told him "what did you do??" and he picked one with his mouth and was moving it left and right left and right.

Then put it down like if he was writing!

Maybe he wanted to write a complaint against me for leaving him when he wanted to play!! Yeah maybe that was the reason he did it! but the pencils just broke while he tried to do it

I wanted to take some pics of the evidence so my mom can see what happened but look at him!! Posing so proud of his bad work!

Then I told him "Bad Boy" he knows when I say that I'm upset! and he seemed a little embarrased

But then looked aways like saying " hmph it's your fault for leaving me alone, deal with it!"

Finally he moved and I took the pic of the evidence! (even though I have so many already but I needed one of just the damages lol) I learned the hard way! Never leave him alone in hyper mode lol!

And then he came again and lay next to the broken pencils like saying "are you done?? can we play now??"

I hope you enjoyed the little devil's adventure lol
Have a great day!!

My Foundation Routine

Hello there! :D

Today I decided to write about my foundation routine. It's quite simple but works great for me :) I only wear my foundation in my T zone and I don't touch the rest of my face. I wish I had perfect skin like my mom and didn't need to use all these products :( ... but oh well :D

These are my favorite face products :)

Favorite face products
Favorite face products


I use Revlon Colorstay in two/three shades. Normally I use 200 Nude (NC 25) because as I said in my skin care routine I avoid the sun as much as I can. Certain events like going to the water park, amusement park or waiting in line for my Nightwish concert under the evil sun burns my skin :( and makes it tan a few days later, so when that happens I use 240 Medium Beige (NC 27 pro) In winter I use 200 Nude (NC 25) or 180 Sand Beige (NC 20-25) or a mix of both for a great match :)

Revlon Colorstay Medium Beige & Nude
Revlon Colorstay Medium Beige & Nude

Will I repurchase it? YES!


I love this Maybelline Dream Matte Powder. It's light weight and sets my foundation pretty good. Like the foundations I use two different tones. When I get more color (tan) I use Medium Sand. During the winter months I use Light Cream.

Maybelline Dream Matte Powder Medium Sand
Maybelline Dream Matte Powder Medium Sand

Will I repurchase it? YES


I tried many concealers before but all of them were too greasy, heavy, or didn't stay long enough. I bought it in an impulse and I'm glad I did. The moment I tried it I fell in love with it! Maybelline Instant Age Rewind is so light and it feels like nothing is there! and stays all day long! so much love!

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Light

Will I repurchase it? YES!

BB Cream:

I had to throw this one here as well :) I usually wear this one when I stay home. It has pretty strong scent it doesn't bother me too much though. I can't use it too often because it sometimes breaks me out :/

Garnier BB cream Light/Medium
Garnier BB cream Light/Medium

Will I repurchase it? No, I'm just trying to use this up and no more. I'll try some other BB creams :)

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you have a wonderful day!

My Skin Care Routine

Ever since I was little I've been pretty consistent with my skin care, my mom was always telling me to take care of it by keeping it  clean and moisturized and avoiding the evil sun :D
I always remove my make up and wash my face before going to bed, I always use toner after cleansing it and I use my moisturizer and eye cream. I love to wake up feeling my face clean and soft. Same routine in the morning except I don't need to remove any make up lol. 
I really enjoy doing my "rituals" morning and night :)

These are the products that work for my skin type. Whenever I tried something new I had to come back to use these because other products don't seem to work as well as these ones. I bought the whole Clinique line for combination/oily skin and it was such a waste of money :( ... These Products are cheap and great in my opinion!

Cheap and great Skin Care Routine
Favorite Products

Make Up Remover:

Equate Eye Makeup Remover Walmart
Equate Eye Makeup Remover

I used to use the Neutrogena Oil Free Makeup Remover but one day I couldn't find it so I bought the store brand one Equate and I'm glad I did because it works just as good as the Neutrogena one and it's two dollars cheaper! Yeah! I love to save whenever I can :)


Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser Walmart
Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser

I think I use this cleanser for over 6 years. I love how easily it removes make up, dirt and oil without over drying my skin. I use this whenever I take a shower at night The Garnier one (in my last monthly favorites ) I use it in the morning :)


Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner Walmart
Neutrogena Alcohol-Free Toner

I started to use this one at the same time of the Neutrogena Cleanser :) it's another product I can't live without :D I tried some other toners but most of them have Alcohol and it's too drying for my skin and makes it feel so tight and uncomfortable. This on the other hand is gentle and removes some imputities I might have left from the cleanser and reconditions my skin :)


I tried many moisturizers and these are the ones that work best for my skin. I tried the Clinique one and broke my skin out so bad!!

Day Moisturizer:

Clean & Clear Mattifying Moisturizer Walmart
Clean & Clear Mattifying Moisturizer
I like to use this during the day. My skin is oily/combo so I need something that mattifies my skin so I don't look like a grease ball (>.<) Another thing I like about this moisturized is that it has SPF 15 so I feel protected during the day (my foundation has SPF as well :D) I didn't notice a white cast when taking pictures but I'm not saying it won't happen. The only bad thing about this product is that I can't find it easily, I used to buy it at Walmart but they don't carry it anymore so I have to go to Harmons to get it which is a little annoying because I have to drive quite far :/

Night Moisturizer:

Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer Walmart
Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer

I use this moisturizer for years and I like it a lot! It leaves my skin so soft. It has Salicylic Acid to prevent pimples and even though it has that ingredient it doesn't dry out my skin at all. I love this product so much and it's so cheap :)

Eye Cream:

Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Daily anti-fatigue eye cream walmart
Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Daily Anti-Fatigue Eye Cream

My eyes are really sensitive and this one works wonders but unfortunately it's discontinued :( So now I'm in the hunt for a new eye cream. I might start using the other Garnier eye cream they have because I know I don't have any sensitive problems with it (I tried it before). I tried Olay eye creams but they might be too strong or I'm allergic to something but they make my eyes red and teary.

What's your skin care routine? Let me know :)

Thank you for reading!!

Song of the week: Nightwish - Turn Loose The Mermaids

As many of you may know I'm a big fan of Nightwish and the fact that they parted ways with Anette Olsson (She doesn't want Olzon anymore) made me really sad. ( read here about it )

Nighwish Anette Olzon
Sweet Anette

She's such a nice person, I've bee reading her blog for quite a while and you can tell that she's a really nice caring person! And the fact I saw her in her last concert ever with Nightwish made me feel more closer to her as a fan. ( read here about the concert )

Please listen to this song and you will notice the sweetness of her voice.

I'll miss Anette a lot and I honestly don't think I can listen to Nightwish for a while because of all that happened ... :(

Enjoy the beautiful song :)
Don't forget to check the past songs of the week :)

King Rusty and the Lunch Box

This story is about how King Rusty, in his quest to find a friend, got confused and made a huge mess


It was a normal sunny day, my mom and I went to buy some groceries and when we got home we noticed something out of place in the living room, I got closer and this is what I found:

"Oh it's just my mom's lunch box! Hmm what is it doing here laying on the floor?" I thought :D (My mom liked her lunch box because it loooked like a purse:)
But when I took a closer look I couldn't believe my eyes!!


Oh no! what happened here?! My mom was so sad! She loved her lunch box! :(
I wanted to pick it up to throw it away but King Rusty took it and looked at me very serious.

I told him "Bad Boy!!" because he did something really really bad!! but then the next thing I knew is that he was running away with the lunch box!!

I followed him! He went to the family room and didn't want to give me the lunch box! I told him that I needed to throw it away but he got even more protective of it!!

But then it hit me, I finally understood what happened ... I could tell by the way he was looking ... He thought that this was his new friend, maybe he thought that this was like a weird giraffe (because of the print lol) ... Oh poor lirrle boy!! He felt lonely when we went out so he desperately tried to find company!

So I told him "I promise you I'll get you a new friend pretty soon!!"
He looked at me like saying "Do you promise?"
And I said "I promise!" :)

Please don't forget to check how his first friend, Pink Bunny, died here!
And also when KR met a peculiar friend here

Thank you for reading another of King Rusty's adventures :)
Have a great day!

My September Favorites

Hi :)

I decided to post about my September Favorites. These are the products are reached for the most. I have my own make up routine that's pretty consistent but since it was summer I used more "vibrant" colors.

I think my summer was a pinky one :) In my opinion pink shades are quite refreshing and cute! and I wore  them quite a lot.

This are the products I used the most:

I think these products are quite good, they are inexpensive but they work wonders! I'm always looking for a good price in things, if I can find something that works as well as high-end stuff I'm all for it.


Revlon Lip Butter: Sugar Frosting Revlon: Silver City Pink
Revlon Lip Butter: Sugar Frosting
Revlon: Silver City Pink

I love this combo! As I said in my Revlon Favorite Lipsticks I love to top any lipstick with a lip butter so my lips don't get dry. Silver City Pink topped with Sugar frosting was my favorite combo this month! I tried to keep my summer look as much as I could since it's still hot :)


Wet n Wild: Sweet as Candy Maybelline Define-A-Line: Brownish Black
Wet n Wild: Sweet as Candy
Maybelline Define-A-Line: Brownish Black

I love Wet n Wild eyeshadows!! They are soo pigmented it's crazy!! I used the pinky shade all over the lid and I used a brown shade for the crease (not the same of this palette because it's too shimmery! It's a brown I used in my normal routine. I wanted to have the pink really stand out!) I used this brown eyeliner because I didn't want to have a harsh line and brown is quite nice for summer in my opinion!


Elf: Pink Passion Physicians Formula Happy Booster: Natural
Elf: Pink Passion
Physicians Formula Happy Booster: Natural

Again with my pink shades lol. I love this Elf blush it's so pigmented and nice! it's a quite bright pink and I don't know makes me happy :) then I used this Physicians Formula as highlighter <3 quite nice combo for me :)


Revlon Pink: Chiffon 911 Maybelline Color Show: Chiffon Chic 160
Revlon Pink: Chiffon 911
Maybelline Color Show: Chiffon Chic 160

I know pink overload! xD This were my go to shades this month! Short pink nails are so cute!

Skin Care:

Garnier Skin Renew The brusher Gel Cleanser
Garnier Skin Renew
The Brusher Gel-Cleanser

I have my own skin care routine and I wanted to try something else. I like it so far! It leave my skin soft! I hate cleansers that leave the skin squeaky clean >.< and this one cleans and leaves it soft. It has a quite strong fragrance which doesn't bother me but I wanted to mention it in case you want to try but can't stand strong odors.

Random Favorites:


Nightwish part ways salt lake city

If you read my blog you might know I talked about them quite a lot! I went to their concert and it was great! ( read here ) ... Too bad there was problems between them and they part ways right after my show in SLC :( I'll miss Anette so much!!! ( read the bad news here )


Any Korean Romantic Comedy movie :D man they are good!!


Me with destroyed Jeans and white Creepers
My mom is in the right so don't mind her lol

If you are into the Jrock or any rock scene music these are a must!! Creepers!! and they are my concert shoes so that's why I needed to include them lol I couldn't wear them in the whole summer too hot to wear closed shoes!

Thank you for reading my September favorites!!
Check my Revlon Favorite Lipsticks too :)

Have a great day!!
