Nicki Minaj for MAC's 2013 Viva Glam campaign

Nicki Minaj is the spokesperson for 2013 MAC's Viva Glam campaign and her new lipstick for MAC is lavender shade called Viva Glam Nicki 2 and it will be on shelves on Feb. 9, 2013. The good news is that all the sales of the lipsticks will be donated to help fight HIV and AIDS.

Donating to Cancer Research

I could not imagine how anyone can battle deadly cancer. When we hear about cancer we often associate it with terminal disease and even death that is why we always feel devastated to know someone who has cancer and especially if we are the one stricken by deadly cancer.

Our doctors always say that at the earliest sign of any suspected disease, going to the doctor for check up is always the best for there are some types of cancer wherein the spread of the cancer cells are minimizes or put at halt when it is diagnosed at an early stage. It’s also good to know that doctors and scientists are doing their very best to find cure for cancer. They are doing research, clinical trials and diagnostic testing for possible cure and development of new drug or even machines that can help in the prevention and cure of cancer.

We can also do our part by donating any amount that we can for cancer research at wherein they are already testing new chemotherapy drug for breast cancer patients where the cancer has already spread in their brains. We always hope that this trial can help breast cancer cures all patients. I just hope that their medical research and development projects can find new life-saving drugs and advance medical gadgets to cure all cancer patients.

Makeup Brushes and its Uses

Calgary Furnace Replacement

These days, in our part of the world temperature is dropping day by day making our early mornings and late nights chilly and cold. Our weather bureau even reported that chilly days will stay until January and February. Being in a tropical country, it’s always refreshing to experience cold season every Christmas that sometimes lasts for a month or two. Now we have every reason to get our sweaters or jackets from our closets to get ready for the chilly days ahead.

A friend of mine who migrated in Canada about 4 years ago has been telling me that it’s snowing at their place already.  Even though she’s been living in Canada with her family for a while now, they can’t help but to feel so cold most of the times and still adjusting to the weather. Thankfully they have heaters in their newly constructed house for without it they will not stand the brutal cold temperature of winter. I can only imagine how they are coping and trying to keep warm during winter. I guess they are always seeing to it that their furnace are working properly or else they will look for so they will not left in the cold when it got busted.

Those that are looking for furnace repairs and maintenance, Calgary furnace replacement can always help any household in that area. Like what they say, it’s always good to have your furnace checked or maintained even before winter comes in such a way that no one can experience furnace emergencies in the cold winter days.

Eva Longoria and her Stunning Yellow Blazer

I've always been a huge fan of Eva Longoria when it comes to fashion. I'm pretty sure that some of her fans would even go on their way to spy on her like a paparazzi just to be near her. Not sure though if someone already stalked her in the past that might end up into background checks like the one offering by I know it will be a hassle for her being a celebrity.

Anyway, Eva looks sophisticated and wear any kind of clothes effortlessly. Just love this style where she is wearing a white shirt, white pants, tan heels and yellow blazer that looks so stunning on her.Would like to copy this style soon but I still need to find that perfect candy color yellow blazer that has my size.

How to Accesorize Different Necklines

Yesterday, I'm trying to find the perfect necklace for my blouse but poor me, I end up not accessorizing anymore before I don't have a necklace that suit that particular neckline of my shirt. IT has a deeper boat neckline and I only got some long necklaces and it didn't match. Next time, I need to buy more necklaces of different styles.

Here's a great illustration that I found at pinterest and I'll keep this handy so I can know what to choose next time.

Home Security

When it comes to home security we don’t need to be complacent all the time. Sometimes no matter how hard we try to burglar-proof our house, our efforts seem futile because these crooks are also hi-tech already. It’s just sad to know and hear in the news about crimes committed by person who has nothing to do in life but to steal and hurt other people because they wanted money.

We need to check on our doors all the time if the locks are always working before we go out of the house and before we sleep. More houses and establishments are also putting up cctv cameras that can also help in solving any crime that might happen in the area.

I have always been conscious about our locks in our house for a number of robbers already have entered in our house in the past. It’s always a sad scenario every time we see our front and back doors wrecked because of forceful entries. We have no other option but to look for a locksmith to fix what has been left broken by the burglars. I’m praying that with the added steel fences and gates in the house, no more similar incident will happen in the future. Knowing someone has entered the house while we are away is so alarming and scary.

Tory Burch Leather Continental Zip Wallet

I've been searching for the perfect wallet for myself and I’m thinking that this Leather Continental zip wallet by Tory Burch looks awesome. I’ve been used to the 2-fold wallets and this time I wanted to own a zip wallet.

It got lots of card compartment and even coin slots. Looks pretty spacious and I know my bills will be organized. I have to see if my cousin in LA can get me this next year.

Saw this at Neiman Marcus and it costs $195 and available in black and tan. I’m loving the tan color since I already have lots of black ones.

Music and Me

Lately, I'm not sure why all of a sudden I don;t listen to music that much. Perhaps, I'm very much pre-occupied with all my social networking accounts that I have. Before, I used to listen to music all the time especially if I have my rest time or break time from work. It is where I get to listen to my fave 80's songs (opps this will kinda reveal how old I am hehe) on my computer and iPhone. The sound of the classic fender amp is also sweet music to my ears.

I guess I need to take a break from FB, Twitter, and Instagram to make way for my music time. I have not even updated my song list in my phone. The songs are kinda all new and I could not relate that much lol.

What to wear in a Concert / Concert Attire

A friend of mine watched the Maroon 5 concert in Manila last Sept. 18, 2012 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. I wasn't able to come with her for I have tons of workload to do plus I'm not feeling so good that day because of my extracted tooth.

Anyway, they were seated about 30 seats away and she's been screaming, jumping and dancing together with some of our friends. She loves Adam Levine so much that she's even collecting photos of him haha. I got envy when she's narrating all what she has experienced. The sound system was awesome!!

Here are comfy style/fashion that you can wear on a concert.

Colorful Toryburch Flat Shoes

colorfulTB flats...

My birthday is coming soon and I'm thinking of what to give to myself this year. I already had enough of bags so I won't buy one till the end of this year. My cousin in LA will also be sending me a Coach bag  as what she has promised and I hope she'll send soon hehe. It's not easy for me to choose gifts for myself, unlike if it's for my brother or uncle, it's easy to just buy acid cigars online that I can give to them.

I was browsing online and I thought that these colorful Tory Burch flat shoes are very cute and if ever I'll buy, I'd pick the orange or maybe the dark pink one. I looked at her site and flats like these costs round $235, yay! Pretty expensive for me to buy that kind of flat shoes.
