Day 3 of 30: Frustration Outlet

Heylo, Beautiful Blossoms. I felt well enough to make an entry from this year's flu (very, very contagious) which had me tossing and turning in bed because my joints were achy - something that I've never had happen to me in all my years of having the flu. I also needed to let out some …

Day 2 of 30: Decisions, Decisions…

While I'm waiting for the Urban Decay Primer Potion to dry a bit, I managed to find my Vice 4. And I learned that I am rather shitty when it comes to keeping my palette brushes clean: I haven't washed the double ended brush that came in the Vice 4. But that's minor compared to …

30 Days with my Vice 4

During another period of boredom / mind off to the great beyond at work, I surfed the Internet for what's new in makeup.

Hobbies are Expensive.

And makeup is no exception. Right now, makeup is a hobby to me. And holy shit, it's burned quite a hole in my finances. But it's not something I regret at all - I'd do it all again if I could. Except I'd probably skip the contouring shit because my contouring products are barely touched, …

Happy Birthday… to me.

I sang those words once, in front of my cheating ex and in tears. The clock had just gone past midnight. I can still remember that night a year ago. I fully believed that my life was over. Yet, here I am. Still able to wish myself a happy birthday, my first one without him.  …

Makeup By Seasons

Or why Filipino Beauty Bloggers are rare. Do you Beautiful Blossoms adjust your makeup to the change in season? This is a concept I've never  understood, as I view makeup as a form of self-expression regardless of the weather. Lately I've been seeing berry lip colors in accordance with Fall. I kinda figured I'd see …
