Guerlain Meteorites Rainbow Pearls Summer 2015 Limited Edition, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, Guerlain Meterorites, How to use Guerlain Meteorites, How to brighten face, Makeup when you're sick
This is the second installment of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusive online haul. A limited edition for Summer 2015, Guerlain Meteorites Rainbow Pearls is stunning beyond words. Between want vs. need, obviously it's more of the former, particularly amongst collectors of this iconic brand.

'Twas a pity party of three in June so I waited for July to make this post rather engaging. So without babbling further, here are the products I finished, which in the world of beauty blogging a.k.a hoarding, remains an absolute challenge!

Berry is not a shade associated with summer. But it's my favorite, especially during fall, my most anticipated season! So amidst heatwave and all, why not have a 'lil taste of fall without the overkill full-on coverage. Here's a breakdown of the products I used for this FOTD.

If you're a skincare gadget or just overall beauty enthusiast, you probably own or at least know Foreo Luna, a handheld cleansing and anti-aging device designed quite uniquely, what with ultra-soft silicone brush and T-Sonic pulsation which claim to remove grime, oil and makeup residue. But jargon aside, is it good enough to justify its $199 tag?

    Let me tell you something serious. I'm afflicted with severely untreatable LO, lipstick obsession that is! Haha, gotcha ladies. So did you get anything yet from Nordstrom anniversary sale? of course I did and part of my small online haul is this Beauty Exclusive lip set from NARS. A steal at $49 ($81 value), Ultimate NARS Lip Pencil Kit features three full-sized neutral lip crayons nestled in artsy case plus a sharpener. Scroll down for for more deets and pics! 

    I don't have perfectly-aligned teeth. I feel that I'm too old for braces, veneers scare me. But overall, I don't have cavities or suffer from periodontal disease. To me, prevention is better than cure so aside from bi-annual dentist appointments, I brush and floss meticulously, three times a day at the most.

    I don't need it but I bought it regardless. Another trivial case of Need vs. Want. Ladies and gents, makeup addicts and hoarders, everyone say hi to Smoky, the 4th Naked from Urban Decay.

    The most attractive from the series packaging-wise, Naked Smoky retails for $54 and is a tad heftier than its older siblings. It comes in a magnetic plastic case with similar landscape mirror and double-ended eyeshadow brush to boot. The wordings are embossed in silver/gunmetal; overall you can tell that Urban Decay spent considerable time and creativity in terms of product development.

    With more than 1,000 branches around USA, I bet you have heard, read, or visited Massage Envy Spa at one point. There are three in Oahu, Hawaii; I visited the newly-opened franchise in Kapolei, courtesy of  Murad PR folks who graciously sent me a promotional card inclusive of one-hour facial session.

    You've probably heard or read the latest hair color trend that's sweeping Hollywood right now. It's neither blonde nor brunette. It's somewhere in between, 'kinda like a hybrid, thus "bronde". I'm due for root touchups but decided to lighten my caramel blonde a tad more. It's been two weeks now and I must say, zilla's loving bronde.

    Lots of love, mwah. Typical moi in high school all through college. Letter or card, that's how I write to a friend (or boyfriend), oftentimes accompanied by a kiss mark, on a fragranced stationery paper, sealed with a sticker. How sweet zilla!

    Less coverage but with killa pout. In the thick of summer, my everyday makeup is pretty much what I just stated. Simple but not so. CC cream, bronzer, barely-there eyeshadow and matte bright lips.

    I don't know about you but lip crayons remind me of my crayola childhood days. Periwinkle, English Vermillion, Raw Sienna, tell me you remember these names! I know at one point I did play with crayons, pretending they are lipsticks. I am convinced this innocent role-play led me to some bloody serious lippy obsession later in adulthood.

    Living in Hawaii, I consider cropped denims or cutoffs my wardrobe staples. Dressed up with wedges  or down with slippahs (flip-flops), donned sexy with cold-shoulder top or sporty with racerback tank, we can all agree that they scream versatility without compromising style.

    The secret to strutting cutoffs starts with jealous-smooth legs. Hair-free, well-exfoliated, bronzed, tanned, and hydrated, whatever rocks your boat, now's the time to unravel summer legs!

    Laniwai Spa, Disney Aulani Spa, Review

    Last weekend, I spent my birthday at Laniwai Spa inside Disney Aulani. I've been meaning to get a massage for the longest time so it was the perfect opportunity to indulge and relax. I booked the signature lomilomi for my niece and I (a traditional Hawaiian rhythmic massage using sticks and warm river stones to ease tension and fatigue). We checked in two hours prior our schedule so we can enjoy the facilities (steam, sauna, jacuzzi, whirlpool spa) all to ourselves.

    jord wood watch review, koa wood watch, why is koa wood expensive, what is koa wood
    sent for feature consideration
    Koa wood is endemic to Hawaii which makes it valuable, pricey and sought-after. Thankfully, my mother-in-law has amassed a good amount of koa wood furnitures back in the day which she generously passed on to us. They were and will continue to be statement pieces; for  every carving, grain and texture, each has a story, forever etched in one's memory.
