Nordstrom Rack finds… (mini-haul)


I’m back with a mini-haul courtesy of Nordstrom Rack. In case you don’t know, I’ve been obsessed with Nordstrom Rack’s beauty section ever since I found my way there. I have been finding great items at a very affordable price too. If you want to see what other beauty products I purchased at Nordstrom Rack, you may check my post HERE.

This time, it’s nothing major since I’ve been trying to stay away from this place to limit my spending on beauty products but I couldn’t help myself but check this place out once in awhile.

Nordstrom Rack Collective Haul



Hi beauty lovers!

I am sharing with you today a haul that I’ve collected over the past year (2016). I started buying makeup at Nordstrom Rack because they are so inexpensive and such an amazing products at the same time.

Nordstrom Rack opened here in Albany, New York last Fall of 2015. And when they opened, I didn’t really care checking the store out, until Spring came.

I’ve decided to visit the store just because and I bumped into their beauty section. They have a decent area of high-end skincare, haircare and of course makeup products. I got really excited and started exploring what they got! Continue reading “Nordstrom Rack Collective Haul”

What I got for Valentines Day?!?


Hello blogger-squad! I hope it’s not yet too late to share this post to all of you.

“Just quick reminder, this is not to brag or anything but I am just so excited to share the blessings that I received from my loving husband last Valentine’s Day”.

Now, this is going to be a bit different than usual. Do you want to know why? Because I finally gained courage to do a YOUTUBE VIDEO!! Ahhhh….. LOL..

But before we proceed to my video. Let me give you a little bit of a recap as to what happened before and on Valentine’s Day! ❤

If you’ve followed me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook I’m sure you saw my early Valentine’s Day surprise that my hubby sent at my workplace last Friday. He knew that I  won’t be expecting any flowers from him because I am not a huge fan of flowers/bouquet  (I felt like they’re a waste of money coz they die so easily not unless those that are planted) BUT! honestly.. I was very SURPRISED! Look how pretty those Tulips are?? It definitely gave me some giggles when I saw them (he for sure got me on this one!) and OH! it came with chocolates too but they are long gone… HAHA


WARNING: If you click PLAY and start WATCHing my Video please be ready to LIKE IT or HATE IT! and guess what? I truly appreciate an honest feedback from you all. 🙂 ❤

But, this won’t end in this video as I will be sharing some in depth swatches of the Urban Decay UD Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette and Urban Decay UD Gwen Stefani Blush Palette on my future blog posts.

And this post won’t be complete without sharing a quick OOTD during our Valentine’s Date! It was pretty-cold that day…. but a single digit didn’t stop us from dining out. 🙂

Overall: H&M (I bought this last May and I finally got the chance to wear them)
Avery Crossbody (Burgundy): Rebecca Minkoff
Coat: Poshmark (bought it brand new with tag still on)
Burgundy Lace-up flats: (Strawberry store/NYC)
Scarf: (brandless, bought it a few years ago when I visited NYC)


Surprises-after-surprises.. Definitely a moment to remember.


And that’s it!

I hope you genuinely enjoyed this post and I hope you too had a wonderful Valentine’s Day spent with your loved ones.



Insta recap!



Wow! where did our week go?

I guess it’s time to do a quick recap of what I’ve shared on my Instagram and Twitter!


Monday Basics! Showed some love to this Urban Decay Naked Basics palette. I’ve had this for quite sometime now and they still looked unused. I love how pigmented this palette is and the shade is just perfect for everyday use. I’ve been using the shades VENUS, NAKED2 and FAINT. This palette is perfect for newbies and pros too!


This Sephora blush in CORAL CRUSH is amazing! This shade is just great for my skin complexion and I love the hint of shimmer on this product as it serves as a highlighter too. The shimmer effect is not overwhelming and because it’s very pigmented, you don’t have to apply a ton on your cheeks. What I noticed about this product is that, the longer it stays on your skin the better it looks.


Lipstick Wednesday! Here’s my lip combo last week, and since it’s Wednesday then we gotta have some Pink right? But before I apply anything on my lips, I had to apply my Holy Grail Carmex Original Lip Balm to moisturize those lips. I then applied L’ORÉAL Colour Riche Le Matte Lipcolour Stick in She’s so Matte then paired with NYX COSMETICS Retractable Lip Liner in Nude Pink. These lip products are super pigmented, non-drying and long lasting too with an awesome result on your lips.


Still loving UD Naked Basics palette and for my lashes I was wearing MAYBELLINE Pumped Up! Colossal Volum’Express Glam Black then brought out my old friend from MAC Cosmetics in PINCH ME to give these cheeks some glow and finished the look with my new favorite lipstick from RIMMEL LONDON The Only One Lipstick in You’re All Mine.


Both items are sample sizes from IPSY ‘s Glam Bags. tarte Amazonian Clay Matte Waterproof Bronzer  and tarte Smooth Operato Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder are both amazing and it’s definitely worth the hype!

And that’s it! If you want to see more of my fun activities, please don’t hesitate to follow me on Instagram and on Twitter.

Have a great weekend everyone!
