Hello Sunshine! Lately, I've been pretty surprised with my makeup choices. You see, I'm hardly the nudes girl, but as of late, I've been going through a bunch of more natural shades for my eyes (and sometimes lips), which brings me to consider, am I getting old?  Or... I don't know, maybe I just found myself a really pretty neutrals palette that satisfied my shimmer love and the more mature side of me. I mean, look at below's swatch!

Hello Sunshine! It's February 14, and I can hear the pyro-music festival here in our veranda. I thought there was thunder, turned out it was just the pyrotechniques making a havoc in the atmosphere! I'm listening to a lot of Katy Perry songs on Spotify--which I surrendered to and downloaded on my laptop--and best of all, I'm enjoying the cool breeze touching my skin. It's a pretty cool evening. I'm looking forward to seeing my sister so I can call it a night. We haven't seen each other for a week. My sister, who re-ignited my love for nail polish well-deserves a dedication in today's post. This nail polish combo is for her, a quiet soul with a secret sparkle! Today, I partnered a light asphalt gray polish with possibly my favorite glitter polish as of the moment, Girl Stuff's Oopsie Daisies.

Hello Sunshine! So... Valentine's day is just around the corner. How do you feel about that? Because I dread Valentine's day. I feel like there's so much pressure placed on this one day of "love". The idealistic side of me would argue--love should be an every day thing; but you know, I've had my share of movies and on this day, a recognizable percent of me is hoping for something magical too.

So this Valentine's 2015, I'd like to declare that I am... hopeful! Hope is such a beautiful thing. Hope keeps you positive. Hope keeps you moving towards a dream. Hope, if it were a nail polish, would truly look like this Girl Stuff number.

Hello Sunshine! I was having lunch with my office mates earlier today when I heard through the grape vine that someone's proposing to someone! (I don't know if it's wise to write about that here... but since I don't know the girl, I assume it's safe to.) So anyway, that news totally placed me in a bridalup mood--so naturally, I'm now looking for unique wedding dresses for inspiration. Whenever I browse the internet to canvass stuff, I try to do so with a budget; so for this round of window shopping I am looking for unique wedding dresses under 200. My best picks are backless wedding dresses so keep on reading!

Hello Sunshine! Beauty on the go, words that are music to my ears. However, sometimes I would find myself wanting more than a quick fix. On those occasions, I would rely on my travel brushes to make sure I don't lose the "professional" flair to my makeup. Good thing Charm released a professional travel brush set, Charm Travel Pro - Suzie edition*!

Hello Sunshine! Since I saw the movie Garden State in college, I've always held on to the quote "Do something that scares you." However, I've been very bad at living up to it. But that's to change this year! My challenge this year is to have "fashion fridays" -- obviously a fashion blog every week. I'm not a very fashionable person, and I'm very lazy in terms of dressing up so this fashion fridays challenge is big for me. I'm excited though! This week I'd share with you my love for long cover ups -- I'm OBSESSED!

Hello Sunshine! What is your skin philosophy? Mine leans closer towards being responsible--because I love myself my selection of makeup, and I admittedly experiment with a lot of products (an occupational hazard for beauty bloggers), I always practice proper skincare: cleanse, tone, moisturize, SPF. For years now, I've been strict with my regimen (despite the rotation of brands and products used); but earlier this week I learned better. Check it out after the jump!

Hello Sunshine! Recently I've been feeling like I'm in between things. Like, I'm at that point of my life where I'm neither this nor that. At first I thought, oh no, this isn't good; but later I realized that being in between can be a blessing of sort. When you're at the center (isn't that the more positive way of looking at not standing on either end?) you get to be whoever and whatever you want to be. That's a more uplifting thought, right?

Perhaps that's also why I found myself sporting a more "in between" shade. I'm referring to today's lipstick of choice, the Maybelline Magnificent Mauve*. Check it out!

Hello Sunshine! And hello February! To be honest, I don't have much romantic reasons to get excited over this month BUT I do want to bring myself to that state of mind where love is in the air and all around me, albeit not the romantic kind!

In that spirit, I want to share with you Ofra 201* lipstick. It's a pink lipstick that I find very "February". I'm sure in the coming days I'd be wearing my reds as well, but for days I don't feel all too hearty, but still a bit in the mood for love (pun); I think Ofra 201 is up for the challenge. Need proof? Check out my Ofra 201 lipstick swatch after the jump!
