Major Major Endorsers


Remember these Miss Universe guys who became instant You Tube sensations right before our viral eyes?  Well, big time na sila!

I know this is just a reenactment but it still makes me laugh in a major, major way.

(Lady) Gaga over Meat

Lady Gaga's meat outfit in the recent MTV Video Music Awards caused quite a stir, and that's putting it mildly.  Naturally, animal rights activists are offended.  But Lady Gaga defended herself by saying that the outfit is a statement to say "she's not a piece of meat."

Statement or no statement, I just think the outfit is plain gross.  I mean, can you just imagine what that dress smells like?

What is Grimace?

The label said Neon Purple (by Twinkle nail polish), but I don't see anything neon about the color.  It reminds me more of Grimace, one of Ronald Mc Donald's pals.

Speaking of Grimace, does anyone know what he/she or it is?

What To Do?

I wanted to try out the boyfriend jeans look, but I'm too much of a cheapo to buy a new pair.  So, off I went to my closet to search among my old pairs.

I tried out one pair after the other.  Not only did I not find an appropriate boyfriend jeans.  S**t!  Nothing fits!
One pair managed to slip past my hips but it wouldn't close.  I'm really heartbroken over a well love Levi's 501 pair.  Oh woe is me!

So basically I have a useless pile of jeans occupying precious closet space.

Now I'm torn on what to do.  Should I lose weight, which is easier said than done, or should I just sell these pairs?  I'm pretty sentimental when it comes to my things.  What do you think?

Project Peklat: Week 9

It's been nine weeks since I started this Peklat/Sebo de Macho experiment.  My Sebo de Macho has officially hit pan bottom.  So, for Php14 a can, this certainly proves that a little goes a long way.

I think there's really a tremendous improvement since I last blogged about my peklat.  It looks flat now, the lumpiness is noticeable only if you look closely and touch it, which is really good news.  From afar, or if you really have poor eyesight, it looks like a dark (ugly) bruise.  It's also way smaller now.

I'm no longer in denial.  I've accepted the fact that my scar will never completely heal.  My knee will forever bear this mark.  Since I don't have plans of joining a beauty pageant, I've come to terms with this, in a major, major way.  Plus, this is a perfect excuse to try out those airbrush leg make up that everyone's been raving about.

Hermès Kelly

I found this video on YouTube where an Hermes Kelly morphs into every kind of material you can think of. 

Can I just say 110% drool worthy?!

Bigger and Better Urban Decay Eyeshadow Potion

In answer to request from fans and professional make-up artist alike, Urban Decay created Eyeshadow Primer Potion Professional Size.  A bigger and better version of the now cult classic product.

It's the same amazing formula that beauty addicts went gaga over in a more convenient squeeze tube.  This means no more wand applicator making this new product more hygienic to use.  Now, you can also squeeze out the product to the very last drop.  So yey to us cheapoholics!  More value for our hard earned cash.

Speaking of value, the UDPP Professional Size contains 150% more primer than the original bottle at 25 mL and retails at $29 (approx. Php1,392).  For more details visit the Urban Decay website.

Gone are days where you have to slice open a bottle of UDPP to depot the remaining product.  I heard or rather read, is dangerous because some of the powder from the bottle gets mixed into the product and may cause blindness.

Hmmm...if only Urban Decay is available here in the Philippines.  In the meantime, another product in my beauty wish list.
