just a NOTD thing...

hello beauties. a quick NOTD entry here using China Glaze Strawberry Fields (sent by the gorgeous SONYA).
once i got it from sonya i just had to use it right away.

ENjOY (pics taken w/ lg vu camera phone)
first design i came up with that day i got the package from sonya.

this design here is the winner. like it?
would you believe me if i said i did this all in a moving car?
that's why it looks so tacky.
i cleaned it up though no worries.

this last one here.. well before the tiger stripes, i was trying to do some sort of flower in graffiti style. i actually do like this a lot. it's not a complete finished work but just an idea for my next nail design.
thank you so much again sonya. i'll be sure to try and post home recipes from my country soon.

FYI:for my lovely followers on twitter...some of you know i work nights and weekends.
finally i got friday and saturday off!!! it felt so good i'm already dreading the thought next friday and saturday i'll be back on my 6p-3am or later grind. ah!! i hate it =(
oh and i wish i took a pic of my friday and saturday outfits. boOoOoOo!!!

sonya hearts lisi

hello loves.
today i have to shine the light on a beautiful blogger.
first of all i have to say Congrats SONYA! = she just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. =

so this lovely gal you see here (Sonya) sent me a package. i call it a love package cause she sent it for no reason other than to just give love. this was totally out of the blue. random. i mean her and i just started to talk over twitter to get to know each other more since we can't chat on blogger (she got twitter cause of me, heheh) and here we are today... sharing the love that was given.
i don't know why you did it sonya but it made my day. it couldn't have come at a much better time! thank you doll face. i can't thank you enough.
did the bottles survive? take a peek...

*click on ^Sonya's ^ picture to link

pictures **ENJOY **
(pics taken w/ my lg vu camera phone)

i was expecting a smaller box.. WoW!

here it is... only one bottle didn't survive.
gah!! it was such a gorgeous looking polish! why?!?

it got all over one of the bows (well just on one side at least)

most of the polish was in one spot. it didn't get all over the place.

talk about love!!! this was more than i expected!
i was sitting there thinking... i was in awe. =)

more falsies to add to my tiny collection.
i love me some red cherry.
the orange ones are my practice lashes (so she said)... hehee. they're too cute to just be practice lashes.

got to find a hair style where i can use the bows =)
aren't they cute?
see the bottom one w/ some polish on the right side =(

Sonya... thank you soo sooo much for sending me this package. i just can't thank you enough. this was all more than what i expected to get. i was thinking you sent two polishes and that was it.
your note was so cute... i'm bummed about that one polish that r.i.p. during the way. the others were ok. just some cracking here and there. i'm using your polishes right away already! i'm so happy i didn't have those yet and now i do. i swear they are lovely colors!! you're a total doll!! if i could i'd hug you 'til your eyes pop out. hahaha. you're the best girlfriend! i'm still speechless... this is just love.
i hope that you and new baby are doing well. sorry that you had to have c-section. rest up doll.. can't wait to see pictures of new baby! talk to you soon.. i'll be here, waiting. hehehe.

prize haul

i received this prize package on monday from the lovely NatNeagle and got excited about it even thru my current *blues*. needed a distraction and this was it.

Nat needed name suggestions for her cute and beautiful flower hair clips (which she creates) and decided to make it into a contest. talk about unique, that was totally a unique contest (in my opinion) and the winner would get a flower or two that she made.
i took the chance and submitted some names for her.
come to find out the name i suggested was one that many have favorited (or liked) and yes i won.
so now her beautiful clips have a name :BeautiFleur by Nat.

pictures... enjoy
(pics taken with my lg vu camera phone)
*** flowers clips made by Nat ***
i thought that card w/ juicy lips was cute.

she is such a doll... she also sent me three jesse's girl shadows.
top left: cellini red
bottom left: cafe au lait
right: super pearl pink

Nat, just wanted to say thank you so much for the clips and adding some shadows in as well.
i have been wanting to get my hands on cellini red. i was eye balling it for the longest.
i thought the card was really cute. reminds me of your pinup look w/ red lipstick.
thank you again and if you do and when you do start selling your hair clips..i wish you the best of luck and success.
looking forward into seeing those special new clips you're making. can't wait to see!
you're just a sweetheart with me and stay positive cause you look even more lovely when you have a smile on you.

if you've seen or are subscribed to nat's video channel, you'll notice the clips she makes in the background. i think they're all gorgeous.

so i totally had to post some pics of what i was talking about...
my current china glaze fave - TEMPEST

please excuse my dry fingers here on some of my pictures.
[ pictures taken with my lg camera phone ]

so these first two were taken four days after applying.
this was the first time i used tempest and couldn't decide what design to do so... MEH i did this plain one. this design was last weeks.

the next two here is what i just created two days ago so yeah pictures taken two days after applying.
i just needed an excuse to use this polish again so i created this lovely design. i freakin' love it.

i don't know if you can notice, but the color of the polish tends to change in every picture.
don't know if that is a good thing.
so yeah, hope you all liked it.

TEMPEST from China Glaze

It's so funny... i remember seeing china glaze at sally's and said to myself... this nail polish is gonna boom in the beauty world. guess what? it did!!! it's everywhere on blogger and youtube.
im so psychic, want a reading? haha. no, i can't read the future.

anyways, let me tell you ladies, i am in LOVE with china glaze and my ultimate fave ..which was so hard to pick.. well currently my fave TEMPEST! the color builds up the more you add. it can be sheer with one coat .. or darker with two more coats.
I am just super happy that i just had to use the color again.
I usually switch colors up every week, but...
i used a different design. thats my excuse to use it again.

I am thanking my boyfriend for this. He was the one that picked it for me. poor thing, i always have him pick things out when i can't decide but he was drawn to the color. (he is straight.. lol.. he hates to see me so indecisive so he helps me pick)

so that up there is my fave. it looks different all the time in pictures.

i want to post up pics of my two different nail designs i used with this polish.
what do you think ladies?

you know what!?!? i love it so much i want to give one away and share my love!!
how about that? a china glaze tempest give away!
so... should i do a post with my nails and a give away?!?

ah it's thursday again. that means i go back to work tonight =(
oh well. got to stack my green.

For the love of _______

... Asia...
[ [ PicTurE heAvy ] ]

just wanted to share one of my amazing moments that i have experienced in my life so far.
at age 23, i didn't expect to travel anywhere in the world yet and alone (meaning no family).
i was blessed with the opportunity to visit thailand and i am happy that i accepted the chance.

well, in case you haven't noticed - my music player contains asian music... japanese that is.
but how does japanese music have anything to do with thailand?
just the fact that i was in asia and of course japan is in asia DUH!
i don't know. ayumi's song just makes me reminisce my trip from boarding the plane in the states to stepping out in bangkok's aiport at 3am and the weather over 70 degrees.
i will soon travel to asia and if i don't visit thailand ever again in my life...
well, all i have to say is that i left a piece of my heart there.
when things were so hopeless for me that year, that trip made me realize life is too precious.
i just can't let it slip by me and enjoy wonders.. that there is more to life than what i think.

i loved everything there. locals.the tours.culture.
i can go on and on...
what impacted my heart was standing on the shores where people lost their lives because of the tsunami disaster. never ever did i think i'd visit that country and yet after such a devastating event.
the thai new year was def the best time to have been there. throwing water to the locals and tourists. it was just so welcoming.
fed fish bread in the sea. that was fun.i grabbed one while snorkeling and moved him in the water like a toy car (i was gentle i was just curious).
the fish sucked on me weird like a baby w/ no teeth.
aahhh... thailand i miss thee..

in the future i'll prob post other pics from this trip.
you should listen to ayumi's song from my music player above while viewing the pics.
i dont know... to set the mood. ahahaa.
