Pack Me Up Pretty: The Nars Makeup Bag Freebie That Led to a Haul



You see I only wanted to get the Narsissist Eyeshadow Palette, an acquisition I will write about in a later post as it is quite a tale on its own. BUT I couldn’t exactly resist a “freebie” such as this:


With a minimum purchase required (an amount that I was quite close to reaching with my original intention), I only needed to add one more Nars item to my cart and I will be going home with the Nars Travel Makeup Bag.

The Inevitability of Change: On Blogging, Writing, Themes, and Midsummer Server Switching



I started blogging in February 2005. My first post entitled “Computer Happy” in my now defunct private personal blog, “i am no daydreamer” simply read like this:

monitor = check
keyboard = check
mouse = check
cpu = check
speakers = check

and finally I’m all set!

i’m just happy for my computer…
it makes me forget, albeit temporarily, the rest of the *crazy* things going on in my life.

Published at 6:57 in the morning after another night without sleeping (I was really fond of those as a student) and with blatant disregard for capitalization, I haven’t stopped writing since.

Dash Japan 2014, a Mid-Air Update

I interrupt my regular programming with a few short posts on travel essentials (not this one). As the week leading to our departure for Japan progressed, I had wanted to do at least one of the following:

1. Finish my Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipsticks’ Second Batch of FOTDs
2. Upload my Divergent-inspired looks that I shot a couple of weeks back. I loved the books (except maybe for the third one just a teeny bit because I love me some Avril Lavigne ending) and adored the movie even more. I can’t wait for the next installment! Theo James is beyond words as Four (yeah I know I’m fangirling) and Shailene is divine as Tris. A tad too tall for my imagined character when reading the books but their pairing and chemistry I absolutely commend. I say this with a bit of a bitter taste after my Rose and Dimitri characters were diminished by the movie adaptation. (Okay now I’m just digressing.)
3. Finish the words and format of even more Avon 36 for 36 posts, the photos of which I have already done before.
4. Basically just catch up with all my pending posts (of which I have plenty) and schedule for upload while I am away.

But if you know me and my daily schedule combined with being a bit sick and packing for the trip, well let’s just say all those didn’t happen so I’m now posting on the go. I write this narrative mid-air as I have missed writing freeform wherein I’m not so much concerned with editing or sticking to a particular tone.


I don’t even know when I’ll have wifi access to actually post this but hey, all I really want right now is some semblance of movement and yes, I want to post about my in-flight and travel essentials. A last minute edit of my makeup kit left me with practically no eyeshadows to play with as I refused to believe that I don’t travel light. Oh well, we do the best we can with we have or else, we go shopping!

Got this free notebook from Cebu Pac's in-flight games because my hand sanitizer was out on my tray due to my impromptu photo shoot.

Cheers everyone from above the horizon!
