Looking For Something?

Bye Bye Summer! {OOTD}


Fun Fact 1: 
This is my most favorite dressy outfit of Summer 2017. The coral top, especially. I'd buy every one shoulder flounce top if I could.


Fun Fact 2: 
I never wore it, because I was saving it for a special occasion. You know how you put together a brand new outfit for something? You think: I'll wear this top. But with what kind of bottoms?Umm, black skirt/shorts? No, it has to be a fun florally something, not black & flat. Hey! Definitely not that black crow-type skirt you're thinking about right now! Okay, one of 4 brands I'm so loyal to will have something.
(Btw, said occasion NEVER happened. I don't wanna talk about it! =\)


Horrifying Fact: 
The little heart bracelet I'm wearing here I almost threw out with a shopping bag, along with a pack of H&M rose gold hair clips. I'd completely forgotten about them! I also have no memory of me buying them : | ... I'm going to check exactly when I bought them, so I know what state of mind I was in at the time. But I assure you, I've never shopped when I'm drunk! ;p

When My Son Turned 3....


He sometimes likes to hold my foot when I'm feeding him. He'd be sitting on his highchair, and then he'd suddenly point to the floor asking me to do something, then I'd realize he's asking me to lift my right foot on to his chair so he can hold & pet it - like a cat.

He calls our helper Naseeba, "Maaseeya"

He calls Banana, "Bananana"

He calls Ants, "Mosquitoes"

He thinks the Eiffel Tower is a Giraffe.

He calls out, "Mommy! Mommy! Kissee, Kissee! Come, Huggiee!" , and stretches out his arms.
I'd rush to his side filled with affection for him & when I get there, he'd tell me to change his  Youtube video!

He says one of his white cars is a "1997 Truck". I have no idea if it's a fact or he made it up.


*******

That's Ziizayne, my baby, who turned 3 on 14th October. 
(I know, I'm 2 days late with this post!)

Gothic Glam Manicure


Nice Girl: "Wow, I love your nails! Where'd you get them done?"

Me: "Really?! I did them myself."

Nice Girl: "Cool! I could never do nail art on my own nails."

Me: "Me neither! This is not really nail art. It's just glitter."

Nice Girl: "Really?! It looks like crystals have been carefully placed, 
and the black tips look like leather!"

That convo made me look at my Lazy Girl Manicure differently, give it a name & a blog post.....

NEW! Maybelline Color Jolt, L'Oreal Lip/Blush Paints, ETC


"Aaahhh!!!"

"How many shades? How much?"

"No, no. No lacquer. No glossy. ONLY MATTE!"

"You have a chair? I have to sit down."

"Please give me cotton."
 (there's no space left on my hands to swatch.)

"Ooh, what's this?! Is it new? Why didn't you show it to me?"

"Oh Lord, have mercy!"

 ******

That's me at Lifestyle... or any makeup store for that matter! ;p


I swear the word "Matte" makes me go.... MAD!

Combine that with "Paint", and I'll end up looking stunned at the 
cash counter when the guy says the total amount.

Inexpensive Jewelry Haul


So I see my last Jewelry Haul post is from August 2014 (Post here)!
I'd stopped buying jewelry, except for a few stud sets & hoops from H&M every once in a while. 
And now, I'm kinda obsessed with big statement earrings. I want to wear a nath (big nose ring) too!

Btw, this is a collective haul. I bought these in a span of 4-5 months, not all at once.
