Lovestruck by Vera Wang
Lovestruck! I love the name of the perfume great timing for the month of June since its the wedding month. Leighton Meester, who plays one of the main character at  the hit TV series "Gossip Girl", is the brand endorser of this new fragrance line of Vera Wang and I just came across the ad at you tube. Don't you love the gown of Leighton here? That would be a nice wedding gown huh?! That is if you're game for untraditional wedding theme. The guy is also one of the top male models is Tommy Dunn. Picture perfect, prince charming! ;)

"Lovestruck ... the name of my brand new fragrance…All about being overwhelmed, inexplicably, hopelessly in love. Allowing yourself to feel passion inspite of yourself, the situation, the repercussions. A new definition of Romeo and Juliet! Sexy, sensual, and unstoppable!" Vera Wang.

Lovestruck is described as a sparkling, addictive floral, young in spirit yet classic.
It was inspired by a modern day version of the story of Romeo and Juliet. 

(Opens with notes of exotic and juicy pink guava and soothing angelica blossom. 
The middle notes “bloom” with tones of intoxicating and sensual tuberose
with aquatic lotus flower. 
Precious woody notes and sheer musk form a solid perfume base.)

I love Leighton Meesteer's outfit!

Wedding Galore!

hair & make up done by yours truly
(Most of the brand I used for my make up is from M.A.C. for those who were asking
the l/s is in the shade of PINK NOUVEAU- been asked several times what I'm wearing)

L-R: Jane, Aracelli, Chiqui and me
(dress:Tango, clutch bag: forever21, wooden bangles:mango. I also added a belt 
to accessorize the dress to give it a twist cause I'm afraid that I could run into another 
person with the same dress! which I have experienced before, It was a shame... and disaster...)
Just to share my look for the day during Owen & Litz's wedding day (click here). Stay fab and pretty! Have a nice long weekend everybody. ;)

Owen & Litz's Wedding

Hi everyone! I have not been writing very often as before since for the past 4 months I have been busy plus I dont have a house help and I am sooo exhausted already to write. 24 hours in a day seems not enough to do all my house chores and all the other responsibilities and tasks I need to do in a day.

So anyway, its June and its the month of weddings! During this month of the year many choose to have their weddings and to become a "June Bride". In fact, for this month I was invited for 3 weddings! For us females it is such a dilemma! What dress to wear in accordance to the theme of the wedding, what shoes goes with the outfit, hair and make up, accessories to wear... etc. etc. etc. Being a fashionista myself, I love dressing up! but attending 3 wedding events in a month?! phew being effortless is impossible!

Last weekend I attended a wedding of my high school batchmate from La Salle Academy, Iligan City (the City where I spent almost half of my life I guess). Owen and Litz's Wedding, the groom is my friend btw. I recieved a sms from Owen last year telling me to please save the date June 12, 2011 for him because he was getting married. I am truly happy for my dear friend when I got the news!
I love the invitation it is so cutey!
I was not really surprised that they would end up together. Owen did put a lot of effort in the relationship, imagine Owen always travel to "the land down under" which is Australia, just to be with Litz. I could still remember that whenever we have a get together with the other high school batch mates, Owen has to excuse himself because Litz is calling or he would be in hurry because they have to talk over the skype. Thanks to the technologies! Long distance relationships works! hehehe...

Owen looks a dashing groom. I also congratulate him for making sure to look great on the most important day of his life. He lost weight, 60 lbs in all! Good job! The bride is so lovely as well! I love the wedding dress and the details at the back of her dress. I love that it is simple and elegant. 

From L-R: Jane, Aracelli, Chiqui and Me

My dress was a last minute buy, I know I got the invite last year... I wasn"t really planning on buying a new dress but I realized I have all of my formal dresses in black and I asked Owen if I could wear black but I know in my mind that most likely it can't be since the the bride is Chinese and for us Filipinos we have this superstitious belief that wearing black in a wedding is bad luck. I still asked since nowadays it is ok to some. So ladies, ask permission if you're not sure. 

It was a fun filled event! Everybody thinks that the couple were a match made in heaven. Congratulations to the newly wed! Cheers to the both of you and may God bless your marriage always.

Time Balm's Face Primer

This is my very first face primer, Time Balm's Face Primer. I wont have any basis as to comparison wise. I am posting a review for this product because it works for me but I wouldnt say this is a HG product for me. For reference, my facial skin type is oily skin and acne prone. I say this one worked for me for the mere fact that it didn't break my skin and it didn't aggravate the oiliness of my face.

I have been using this face primer for 3 weeks now and so far I am satisfied with it. Usually when I dont use this face primer I would constantly blot and retouch my foundation every 2-3 hours but when I do use this I'd only retouch once during the entire day and my face feels smoother. I noticed also that my acne scars were slightly lighter. I can say that it may be due to using this face primer since I am not using any ptoduct that will lighten my skin. This is probably because this has vit. C in it plus it also has vit. A & E.
