Tags+Awards+Sephora Swatches

Sorry for the lack of posts nowadays, I've been busy and now I'm sick, woke up last monday with sore throat & fever....I hate being sick!!! I could barely swallow, my throat was so swollen.....been sleeping on & off the whole day yesterday...

Anyways, today I'm going to do some tags that I haven't done yet...
first is from the beautiful Zoe of "13december"...Zoe thanks for
for tagging me for "Once upon a Time" & " You're a Doll" it is.

"Once Upon a Time" Tag
1. Post a picture from your childhood (less than 13 yrs old).
2. Write about the picture.
3.Tag your friends and readers.

I can't remember how old I am in this picture but this was taken in our house back in my hometown with my cousin. she's like 2 years older than I am and we grew up together...same house, same room, same school from grade school to college & even finished the same degree. right now she's having her first baby and I'm so happy for her...& I'm going to be an aunt I'm excited...

"You're A Doll!" Tag
1.Remember to link back to the person who awarded you!
2. Select 5 more bloggers that you think are dolls and link them at the bottom.
3. Tell about a character from a book/movie /drama that you most like.
4. Post the picture and title on your blog permanently if you'd like.

This is a bit hard, uhmmmm....well, all I can think of is Ella of Ella Enchanted (Gail Carson Levine)....I first read the book & liked it so much,It's like Cinderella with a twist and it was released as a movie with Anne Hathaway as Ella.
Ella was given a gift of "obedience" when she was born, so imagine your life having to obey everything people tells you to do, what I like about her is because of her curse/gift she became a rebel but without success (haha, that's me!!) she's smart and very good with language which helps her a lot on her adventures. she's brave, sure of herself & her opinions and she has sense of humor, she doesn't need a kiss from the prince or help from the fairy godmother to break the curse, in the end she breaks it all by herself because of her love & devotion for the Prince...classic fairytale right? but this book/movie is's fun to read how she deals with her disability...

I want to thank the sweet Amy of "Amynaree" for giving me this award, Thanks Amy!

Blair and Zoe requested some swatches for the
Sephora Lip Attitude-Glamour Lipsticks and here it is:
(taken Digital Macro in Natural Light)

I hope this helps, I tried taking some pics of it on my lips but my lips isn't just as nice as angelina jolie's so.....

These lipsticks has a light fruity smell....which I love, it's a bit minty when I wear it or is it just me?'s hydrating, creamy and glossy but not sticky at's sheer so I have to apply it a few times, packaging is nice, it's shiny pewter & the bottom is clear so you could see what color it is...and available in a lot of shades to choose from, for $12, I think it's a good buy.

Hi!!!It's my first post of 2010, Happy New Year to everyone who I haven't greeted how did you spend your new year? mine was a bit different from what I'm used to instead of a party at home we just had a simple dinner with friends at the resto and went downtown for the strawberry drop & fireworks and the next day we did the usual thing we always do every new year, go to NYC but this year was more fun because we had mom & some friends with us....

we also spend the last day of the year in the sweetest place on earth, where else? Hershey, PA...
I never get tired of this place, I'm always fascinated with the Hershey kisses street lights & the street names like Cocoa avenue & Chocoloate avenue....
It was also the last day (for this season) of the Hershey Candylane at HersheyPark....

The Carousel
The Kissmas Tree
and here's our way of Welcoming New Year...

the countdown

and the strawberry drop

I didn't get the chance to take a pic of the fireworks
cuz' I have been taking video of the whole thing...

then the next day.....
check out one of our hotel room, did JFK really slept here??

Unto the Haul
Well, I've been good...I can't believe myself,
I just went to Sephora and got myself these $10 Goodies
Stila foundation wardrobe in warm, Nars Concealer(Custard/Ginger),
Fresh Magic Wands Mini Mascara Duo & Benefit to go beauty bestsellers
and these lip products

Sephora Lip Attitude-Glamour in 02 & 05, Dior Addict in Jersey Pink &
YSL ROUGE VOLUPTÉ in 13 Peach Passion

The Sephora Lip Attitude lipsticks are fairly good....the 02 Pink Lover is my current favorite...

I regretted getting the Dior Addict in Jersey's just the wrong shade for's not sticky but because of too much glitter on it...I look too pale like I've been wearing a blue lipgloss or I'm cyanotic...

The YSL ROUGE VOLUPTÉ isn't part of my NYC haul, I got it last december but I have to rave about it....It's the creamiest, most pigmented weird color lipstick I've ever had in my entire life..I was so shock that a bright peach coral shade would look good on me plus the packaging is so beautiful....the downside it would look flaky on my dry lips if I don't use lipbalm before applying it...but still I love it and I can't wait to get my hands on other shades...

Well, that's it for now....
