Hi, I’m back! I’ve been on hiatus from blogging and it took me a month and half to actually write again. I won’t delve on the details but all I can say is, I was all because of work. I missed my blog 😦 I missed writing. And most of all I missed new friends (fellow bloggers,readers,drifters) I met here on the net. But now I’m back, I’m so excited to write again!

On to my Outfit of the Day. My look is Parisian-inspired.

I am a huge lover of anything French. From the movies and books I’ve encountered, I do believe there is something romantic about Paris. I am at awe on how rich French culture is: food, places, films, music and fashion. France is on top of my “places-to-visit” list.

Wearing simple pieces helped channeling my inner Parisian chic. ❤

Where I wore this? On a night out with new friends. 🙂

These girls are so much fun to hang out with. We lived together for a month and I guess we clicked because of similar interests and personality. Plus, they are all nice!

Blindfold Makeup Challenge with TediousGlutton


blindfold makeup challenge 1

Hello everyone! I want to introduce you my very best friend in the whole wide world. His name is Chris and we’ve been together since our elementary school days. We’ve been through a lot but most of it were happy and hilarious unforgettable stuff. I had to admit I haven’t been the ‘best’ best friend for him. There was a time where we didn’t see nor hear from each other for years and it was my fault. But this guy is the best, I don’t have a single bad memory from him.  I had the pleasure of meeting his family too, they are really nice and very welcoming especially when I come over his house. I’m very lucky to be his friend 🙂

So my best friend just started his Youtube career this year, I’ve been helping him out from the beginning. His videos are about vlogs of his life, challenges and talks. He is really hilarious. Please check out his channel TediousGlutton and give him some love!!!

For his next video, I was invited to shoot with him to do the Blindfold Makeup Challenge. I was so excited but apprehensive at the same time. It was my first time to be featured in Youtube. Lucky for my best friend he was somewhat used to it. When we filmed the video I had fun and kept on laughing. The challenge was so crazy. We had to do each other’s makeup while blindfolded. You guys have to see what happens next!

Lipstick of the Day: Wet N Wild MegaLast in Purty Persimmon

Hi lipstick junkies!!!

Here’s another Wet N’ Wild MegaLast lipstick. I really can’t get enough of them. I plan to get more of these of different shades of nude, peach and plum. They’re seriously great and very pigmented. One thing i don’t like is these lipsticks make your lips dry. I use my Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm before applying the lipstick and it works great.

I’m wearing the shade Purty Persimmon. I already did an in-depth review of this on my previous post Wet N’ Wild MegaLast and MegaShield Lip Colors. Please check that out if you would like to know more about this lipstick.

Verdict:

What I like

  • durable packaging
  • has 26 shades to choose from
  • has a scent but quite faint
  • decent lasting power
  • super inexpensive
  • Purty Persimmon is a gorgeous shade of red with a tinge of orange
  • creamy and matte (don’t forget to exfoliate your lips or apply lip balm)
  • available anywhere or online

The bad

  • due to the creamy consistency, can be REALLY messy and easily transferable

Roro’s Thoughts:
Of course, I like it. Great shade but I only get to wear it a few times because I prefer the Wet N Wild MegaLast in 24 Carrot Gold. I would definitely love to try other colors.

A 5 /5 lips for me 😀

Have you tried the Wet N Wild MegaLast in Purty Persimmon or in any shade?
Love to hear your thoughts!

OOTD#8 Boots & Stripes

It has been raining here in my country quite a few times and would get super cold. In these kind of weather, you mostly could find me at the safe haven of my bed with tons of pillows and deeply asleep. It feels so great to laze about on bed when it’s cold. During rainy days, I don’t usually make an effort dressing up. I like to wear something more laid-back. I would wear jackets, long-sleeved tops, leggings and accessorize with scarves or beanies then viola, done. For footwear, flats or rubber shoes would do. Simple, nothing fussy. What matters to me is I get warm!

Lo and behold, the forever debate between comfort over style. Which do you prefer? For me, I would choose both just to be safe. And c’mon, you can do both. You can be comfortable and fashionable with what you wear at the same time. But I do admit, in some instances I prioritize style. Like when something (example, a dress) doesn’t fit on me, of course, you wouldn’t wear it anymore. Well for me, if it’s a favourite dress of mine, I wouldn’t care if it doesn’t fit, I’ll still wear it. Admit it, you’re also like this. Aren’t you? Hmmmmmm…. LOL  😀

Big THANKS to those who read my posts and for the likes&love.
Also grateful for the people who would always leave me comments!
Now I ask you,
which do you prefer? Comfort or style?

Let me know!

Words To Live By

I haven’t been posting quite recently. I’m currently a part time student for now and have been dealing with some stuff going on with my life. But there is never a single day I don’t think about my blog and the people who supports it. So here’s some great words that could inspire your day. Take care 🙂

“Create your own style… let it be unique for yourself and yet identifiable for others.”

OOTD#7 Alice in Wonderland

OOTD#7 Alice in Wonderland

Hello ladies!

It’s a quite rainy here in the Philippines for weeks now. It feels good to laze about in morning, on the bed and do nothing. Unfortunately, I’m attending classes so I have no time to be idle at all.

I used to think that whenever the weather is not good you ought to wear dark or dull colors. I think there is no general rule that you can’t wear bright colors or even summer dresses during rainy days. As a matter of fact, wearing bright colors during these days could improve your mood and combat the feeling of the blues and gloom. I spiced up the whole look by wearing bright pink pointed-toe heels (which by the way I am loving at the moment 😀 ). I used to dislike pointed shoes because they pinch my toes and I thought it look funny on my feet. But now I find them adorable!

But of course if it’s cold don’t forget to put on an outerwear item like jackets or coats. I paired this floral dress with a skin-tone cardigan but this would also look good with denim jackets. I love this dress because of the bright colors. Plus the style of the dress, like the cinched waist, square neckline and wide flair skirt, reminds me of the outfits in the movie The Stepford Wives. I love this movie and watched it when I was 13 years old. I just fell in love with the 50s/ 60s style. You can also see this style on the TV Series Mad Men.

It’s actually fun to go against the rules, try and experiment stuff (for me especially with clothes). Cause not only would you look good but you would also feel good 🙂

Have a nice day, you guys 🙂
