Marilyn Monroe + MAC

The bombshell known as Marilyn Monroe is MAC's new inspiration. Coming out with a Marilyn Monroe Collection for Holiday 2012 of make up. Of course you'll see the classic vibrant red lippie and also black liners.

See the lashes?! So Marilyn! Also love the nude lipstick. Great shade to pair with the Penultimate Black Liner.

Maybe it's a sign that mommy is going to the US. Hope I can convince her to bring me home a lippie or liner...

Check out for the complete list. Released today in the US and October 2012 to the rest of the world.

Tomorrow is the B-day!

Hmmm, I didn't get to add anymore stuff on my wish list. Too much work in the office I didn't get to go around and think of stuff I'd like to have. Although lately I've been feeling really bad about my post pregnancy weight that I don't feel like shopping for clothes (did I hear my husband's applause?!). I'm still hoping to lose it soon. 

How? I wanna do bikram yoga again. Bikram is doing yoga in a heated room. Really, really hot room. It feels so good after! You sweat all the toxins out of your body.

Then I wanna do Barre3 too! Sort of ballet, yoga and pilates all rolled into one.

I'd like to join a marathon too. I promised myself I'll do one of those marathons before the year ends.

And I wanna get a bike too so I can spend time with my husband who bikes during the weekends. I'm hoping if I share this activity with him, we'll both lose weight. Not so happy with his weight too.

Oh well, another year... wonder what's in store for me...

Teaching Kids to Beautify

I saw my niece post her face of the day on her Instagram account. I was amazed how much she knew about putting on make up and she was just 13? 14? When I was her age I hated putting on make up. Those were the days. 

Now, like any other tita, I encourage my niece's passion for fashion and everything else beautiful so I ordered make up brushes for her. Having the right tools will help her develop her skills even more.

I found a site that sold really affordable brushes on FB, Shapes and Shadows Boutique, and bought this 24-piece set of brushes for P600. I think this is a good starter set for an aspiring make up artist. Bristles are soft and picks up good amount of product.

The site has a variety of synthetic and animal hair brushes to choose from. All comes with pouches or cases.

I sent this picture to her and she went crazy! Suffice it to say, mission accomplished.

Note: Brushes and make up in the site are from Singapore and China

Wish list 2012

This wish list is brought to you by Zalora!
I recently bought a set of Dashe brushes from Zalora to replace the brushes I had. And then I realized I needed to change my travel make up brushes as well. Some of the bristles are not as soft anymore and now tends to scratch my face when I apply make up.

Where else to buy but at Zalora right? I found these travel sets...

5-piece personal set from Suesh at P950. It comes with a pouch.

3-piece dual ended set from Dashe at P450. So technically this is 6 kinds of brushes. I like this cheap and cheerful set!

5-piece set from Hash at P249. Another cheap and cheerful set! These set also comes in other designs.

Nice right? I think I prefer the Dashe set coz less pieces in my kit. 

If you wanna purchase any of these, feel free to use my Zalora voucher code ConciNavarro12 upon check out to get discounts! if you're not yet registered, click on the link on my blog.

Wish list 2012

Previously blogged before that I wanted Keds for my birthday. It's such a classic that you just have to get one. The variety of styles have definitely grown more since my college days. While the new styles are lovely, I'd still go for the classic Champion CVO Canvas Basics. I can't decide whether to go safe with white or go with blue or red...

Dear Hubby, I'm size 6. And I'm okay with whatever color. I hope you don't give me a call anymore when you buy me a gift. Just surprise me for once... please?! If you don't know where to look for it, check Shoe Salon, sport shops or even department stores.

Wish list 2012

Well, it's September once again. My birthday month! As usual, I'm making a wish list. Wala lang... just wishing and hoping. First on my wishlist are these Casio Retro Watches

This one I like!

Ummm... maybe I don't need a calculator on my arm.

I've been seeing these around lately. Nice addition to my arm candies! I found a couple of  sites selling these online, Digitalism.PH and Therapy Bags. Although it might be for pre-order.
