Anyways about the early christmas gift that I’m saying as the title says I got a new subscription box to open and I am so excited for it since its a special edition box from Glamourbox. They have team up with one of the most popular makeup brand from Australia the BYS Cosmetics that produces high quality cosmetics. The box is designed for makeup junkies and professionals for upgrading their kits and stepping up their makeup game. Its one of the most rave about box now and I am so glad I get to own one.

Here are the products mentioned on the list:

BYS Nude2 Eyeshadow Palette

BYS Nude2 Eyeshadow Palette

The star of this box the BYS Nude2 Eyeshadow Palette is a mix of neutrals in matte and shimmer eyeshadows they are pigmented and can take your look from day to night. I’m actually hoping to get the Nude palette since its more in the Pink-Brown-Gold combination which is perfect for my yellow morena skintone though I also love this Nude2 palette where is a more Copper-Brown-Purple combination. What I am really in love in this palette is the black which is holy cow the most pigmented black I ever had.

BYS Contour Trio in Sweet

Next is the BYS Contour Trio in Sweet which gains a lot of rave from Cosmopolitan. I am not really a fan of this Trio since I thinks the colors are not working for me aside for the blush. The contour color is too light for me and I can only use it for my nose contouring. The highlight color is matte which dont makes any sense when I used it. The cheek color is pretty warm peach and just right for my liking.

BYS Blush Duo in Paint it Pink

Next is the BYS Blush Duo in Paint it Pink which is not really my style of blush but  I fell in love with it because its so pigmented. Just be careful with using this since if you put too much you could look like an overslapped clown. The staying power is also awesome.

BYS Matte Lipstick in Celebrity Status

Next another red lippie for my collection. I got a matte lipstick which is super pigmented and compliments my skintone perfectly. Standout lips for the win!

BYS Brow Definition Kit

BYS Brow Definition Kit

My favorite product of all is this BYS Brow Definition Kit. It has an eyebrow wax to prime and keep the hair in place and 3 brow powders that you can mix and match to create different color intensity for your eyebrows. Its also very pigmented and its staying power is superb. Eyebrows on fleek!

BYS Nail Polish

And lastly BYS Nail Polish which is super fast drying and the colors are gorgeous.

New Goals for New Year

happy new year

Happy New Year everyone! Another year has ended and a new one has begun. I am so happy and excited now for a new chapter in my life. 2013 has been a very unforgettable for me. A lot of things had happened and most of them made me very happy until now. It all started when I choose to act on one of my new years resolution and one thing led to another. I actually don’t make new year’s resolution because I tend to break them anyway. What I make are small goals which I try to achieve.

Belle De Jour 2014 Power Planner and Papemelroti Pocket Planner

Belle De Jour 2014 Power Planner and Papemelroti Pocket Planner

With that in mind, I started to make my new goals for this year with the help of my new 2014 Belle De Jour Power Planner that I bought last year and a Papemelroti 2014 Pocket planner that our former HR gave us.

I find the BDJ planner very helpful because it has other features aside from the usual contents of an ordinary planner plus discount coupons of different establishments. Better than the coffee planner that everyone is dying to have plus it won’t break the bank. It’s a perfect planner for an empowered woman.

The Pocket Planner is very cute and convenient to bring everywhere you go so you are always reminded of all your special events or important tasks.

So now I got my tools time to write my goals for this year. Let me share you some of what I wrote on my BDJ Planner.

  • Build a new house for my own family.
  • Open an account and save up to 50k before the year ends.
  • Get back to my pre-pregnancy body.
  • Complete my own Kikay kit.
  • Make my husband fall in love with me again and again and again.
  • End the year debt free.
  • Create  a business plan that I would probably  use in putting up my own business.
  • Update blog once a week.
  • Have new friends in any kind of medium.

I got a lot of goals in my mind but I know not everything can be done this year . So I just pick some to make sure that I got to accomplish some of my goals in life. These are baby steps for me to achieve my ultimate goal: To be a great person and have a happy and wonderful life with my family and friends.

XOXO,

Short introduction of the beauty mom

ImageHi everyone I know its very common to start a blog with a self introduction but I would still go on with this just so you may know a few background of me, the beauty mom, lols. Actually I’m not exceptionally good looking and I may look plain for some. I am also morena but I’m proud of my skin and I never felt like using any whitening soap just to alter it. I just enhance what God had given me with the use of makeup and other skin care products.

My blog is about scoring good finds while still sticking to our budget. I know I’m not really good in sticking up with my budget, I do splurge sometimes but you can only count with your hands. I always try to go around the metro just to find good quality stuffs and services that would make every cent that I earned get what it’s worth. And since I am a mom of a 7 years old girl and soon to be a mom of a baby boy (yes, I am actually expecting right now) and being newly wed with the father of my second child, I need to start saving for our future plans of having our own house and a business of our own.

So everyone please bare with me if I have flaws with my spelling and grammar. Hope this blog would help moms like me and even those who want to score some good finds that won’t hurt your wallets. Enjoy reading…

Xoxo,
