taylor jacobson's blog for everyday minerals

taylor jacobson, raisinface's ex-assistant stylist has a new blog! everyday minerals hired her to blog about anything she likes.

i just got the buzz from coco perez and im now gonna check it out!

just thought you girls would wanna know about it too :)

be glorious,

and another annoying thing

found out about kevyn aucoin's book - making faces from khymm's post regarding contouring and i haven't finished the short post but i got so excited about the book. now that is a makeup manual, complete with colored illustrations and all.. i thought it wasnt available in the PI so i asked khymm about it but unfo she just borrowed it from a friend.. good thing i tried powerbooks.com.ph next.

can't visit the physical store as im uber-tied up what with 2 kids here and all.. so i ordered online and i found out about a newer book. it's called face forward. can't decide which to get (although i kinda am expecting the newer one to be a revised copy of the first one which usually happens when an author releases another book of the same interest), however there might be great stuff on the 2nd one that aint in the 1st one and vice versa. and these are books after all. i love books. so i got two.

here is what they look like

now i wanted to show you my actual copies but unfoooooooo powerbooks havent delivered it yet. that's how they are anyways. i ordered last saturday, they "approved" it monday night and today is a friday they didnt have the decency to at least inform me what's going on. i emailed them last night but nobody replied to me today. i finally called them and that's when i found out they're still checking the stock! what the hell?! yes powerbooks may have an online store but it's just for show. they don't have auto-approval of orders, or even online inventory. hmpf.

oh well i have no choice but wait for my orders to arrive!

i'm surely be gonna sharing tips from those books :D

the books by the way are Php 969 or about 20usd each. powerbooks charged me a hundred bucks or 2usd for the shipment.

be glorious,

now how ANNOYING can this be..

not that i buy fake perfumes.. i have very limited perfume collection.. i have only bulgari and d&g light blue but these days i only wear davidoff cool water anyways.. i have 3 big bottles as a backup :) and if somebody gives me perfume (like my auntie got me a dior addict the other day) i give it away to my sis usually..

but my sisses who'd sometimes get fake perfumes, knowingly or unknowingly (fake being that the faker copies the minutest detail including the bottle of the original perfume that is) will definitely be PISSED!

follow it here you sisses

our men wants us to wear less makeup

yea yea yea. i know about it.

ALL of them guys i've ever been with don't want me wearing makeup.

they said:
i don't need it. (ha! but i was in my 20's with a skin of a young girl! of course i look perfect without makeup on!)

apparently most men have the same idea.
