status: glam? [slight pic heavy]

so bloggers, been having a very rough week. =( gah.. where is my sunshine? shopping can be considered my temporary haven.. my temporary sunshine thru the clouds. my comfort.
introducing... my Status Glam haul. Status Glam? yes, that is the name of a new online boutique.
i'm sure most of you have youtube accounts and follow awesome gurus as well.. does status mode sound familiar?
does this picture help? hehe. if not click on photo to go to her youtube channel.
anyways, she has a new site that is currently up and running which offers a lovely variety of handbags, wallets, keychains, laptop bags, bracelets, necklaces, rings, nail polishes and red cherry lashes!!! i personally think the items are quite unique and so very cute. VERY GIRLY INDEED! so i was invoice number two, lol.., so i got only a few things BUT let me tell you i've already ordered again. shipping was very fast! received it two days after ordering.
let's just view the goodies shall we?

i just loved how this was wrapped up. it was like, hey lisi here is your gift you ordered! lol.
i really thought this gave it a personal touch. =) loved it.

dual wrapped. white tissue in the interior as well.

TADA!! i purchased a zebra print tote bag.
i love animal prints. it's my current obsession.

interior. sad that there are no pockets but nonetheless it's all good. i rarely use pockets anyways! hehe.
it has a zipper closure.
let me say my laptop actually fits in here. i have an hp pavilion notebook.

i also ordered a couple of key chains.
i really loved how the items were sent. =D

on the site, it looked like a decent size...

but look how big it is!!! haha. wow. got my moneys worth i should say.
but it's still such a gorgeous key chain.

cool thing about it.. the other charms on this key chain can be removed!
so you can switch it around i guess. i like mine how it is. i'm tempted to take one off and put it on my phone. i won't. =D

i really like this one. once i received it my house keys were already put with this keychain.

so there it is! =) the site launched about a week ago. new items are being added so everytime i check it out (like every other day) there is something new and that i want! IN MY OPINION, i think the prices on the site are fairly reasonable. from what i have received so far, i do feel like i DID get my moneys worth and wasn't disappointed at all.
BRI - i wish you lots of success in this new business/website! wishing you also ALL the very best! good luck. <3

ALSO, i did shop at (elle and blair's online store aka allthatglitters21 and juicystar07 from youtube).
i just couldn't wait any longer. i just HAD to get one thing at least. just for now so i can take care of the itch! lol. wow, ok! so i got this keychain - zebra print w/ hot pink. yes, L for lil Lisi! =D
i ordered this the same day i did with and got them both two days later.

so there it is lovies! hope you enjoyed. sorry it was a loooong post!

simple yet pretty

here is one of my fave hair styles. it is a simple but lovely look. i don't know, i get complimented often when i do my hair this way. i do three sections but it can be more than three.. it could be done in four, five, six or seven depending on ones liking. the more sections, the smaller they will be of course. to hold the sections, you don't need to use those clips you see in the picture. i actually hold the sections with one bobby pin. reason i put the clips is because at work i move around a lot and just want to make sure the sections stay in place. the rest of the hair can be let all down or pull hair up in a pony tail. hair can be straightened or add some curls.
this style does NOT take long at all. straightening hair takes time to do but for a quick do, i just do the top part in three sections and then the rest of the hair i put in a bun holding it in place with large bobby pins.

will you believe me if i told you this is my hair after 9 hrs?!?
i had just gotten out of work.
i just used a bit of sheen spray while twisting to control frizz.
then spritz a bit of my fave tresemme hold spray.

so there it is. hope you like it. =)

last weeks nail

long time no blogging. sorry lovies. just dealing with some of life's issues and all.
just wanted to post a pic of a nail design i did last week. this here was suppose to be a contest entry but i'm sort of backing out. i really haven't had spare time to do contest entries which is sad cause i want to enter. this one wasn't so easy. it's one of those designs that start off difficult but later you get the hang of it as you go. so yeah, this was a pic of my first attempt.

i have another design done but debating if i should enter it for the contest or just post it up as a tutorial or something. the design is similar to one that i have posted on blog last month i believe but just used some different colors.

hope you liked this here! more to come.

NOTW (small post)

i did my cousin's nails yesterday so i wanted to share with you bloggers what i did.
this is just a very simple design. i keep photos of ALL the nail art i have done for myself and my cousin was going thru them. my mom suggested that i do my cousin's nails... so i did. this is the first time i do nail art for someone else other than myself. so yeah, this one here is the one she liked.

my mom is spreading the word about how i do nail art and well now i have people wanting me to do their nails.. is that a good thing? maybe. i mean if i end up getting money for it down the line then yes. the more i practice, the better i'll get and learn more techniques, etc..

hope you all like it.
i've had a really bad week last week and now i'm even more sad..
my cousin is back in central america. she was staying with us for a month and last night my mom, aunt and i dropped her off at the airport. i wish she didn't have to back home. i miss central america. i hope i can go next year.
i will add photos of the national Guatemalan soccer team (we met at the airport last nite) later when my cousin sends me the photos!
i was all nervous.. them dudes are FINE!!! my cousin is so lucky she got to fly with them. hope her husband doesn't get jealous when he sees the photos. haha. i tell ya, my cousin and i were in heaven!
