im baaaaaaaaaackk.. (i hope)

i missed all of you guys!

these past few weeks have been crazy.. i owe you an update and let me just list what i've been doing that kept me away from blogging:

- i was preparing for my eldest's birthday party

- a typhoon hit manila and the surrounding areas that we had power outage for 18 hours straight! then sporadic power outages thereafter.

- me and my kids moved.unplanned. and so the party never happened. now living in a very strange province outside the metro.

- the kids and myself got sick. we are still all sick until now. allergy due to the new environment.

yea yea im not giving any details cuz i've been blue and i really didnt wanna blog cuz there arent any excitement going on but i realize the more i keep away from blogging the more depressed i get.

im sharing some photos for your enjoyment. we are still adjusting to the new environment and until then i wont be able to post makeup related stuff.

i miss you all ladies (and gents :D)
too busy obviously. i owe you a lot of "cuento" i know. will be doing that soon.
meanwhile an FOTD. yes! i tried my stila all doll'd up palette for the first time yesterday. i used the violet and teal shades. and i have also used it on top of my benefit lemon aid.
good news is, i think i have found a workup so the lemon aid wont crease on me. plain ol' (and cheap) mineral veil!. yay!

i used:
banana boat sunblock spray
maybelline foundation whose name i dont care to remember as i got it for free and besides it's too runny i dont care to use i ever again
translucent mineral veil
vmv flush blush in cabana cutie
benefit lemon aid topped with mineral translucent veil (the veil did the magic and stopped lemon aid to crease. so happy.)
stila all doll'd up palette - violet and teal
stila smudgepot - violet glitters
maybelline long extreme double stretch mascara

again, missed you all. will be doing rounds of blog lovin now. see you on your blogs :D

be glorious,
