October Blogging Challenge: Day 1

Hi, Guys ! 
Today is the first day of October! 
I am soooooo excited for this month! 
October has my birthday, Fall, and Halloween. 
I love all three of them and can't wait. 
I especially am looking forward to my birthday this year, as I will be turning 20! 
Enough rambling! 

I mentioned yesterday in my September Favorites & Announcements post that I will be participating in October Blogging Challenge.  I will be doing the one created by Gracie from Girl Meets LifeIt basically is a challenge that challenges you to blog everyday for the month. 

So let's get started with the challenge: 

Day 1 - Your Goals for October 

My goals for October: 
  • Stick to this challenge - I don't want to give up in the middle of it! This is my first blogging challenge and I would like to actually go through with it. 
  • Eat & Live Healthy - My choice of food have been terrible lately. Too much sodas, sweets, fast food, etc. Also, I don't even know when I have been motivated to exercise even for a little bit. I am planning to be more active and conscious of what I eat. 
  • Post more consistenly on Youtube and this blog - I have been lacking content both in my Youtube channel and this blog. I would like to be more consistent in creating contents and hopefully make and meet some new friends on the way. 
  • Stop Procrasitinating - I need to stop putting off things that needs to be done, whether it's for school, blog, youtube, etc. 
  • Read - I haven't read for the sake of pleasure (not for school) in really long time. I have many books I want to read and I simply need to pick up some books and start them! 
These are my goals for this month! 
So what are your goals for this month? 

I'll be leaving the October Blogging Challenge at the end of every post, so you and I can be reminded of what we went through and what challenges are to come ! I hope you guys enjoy my posts ! :) 

Daily Bits
  • I went to my school for my one and only class only to find out that it was cancelled! Such a waste of time ! 
  • I feel like today went by really quickly !  Did anyone feel that way? 
  • My order from Hautelook finally came today! I am thinking of doing a haul, even though it isn't that many products.

September 2014 Favorites & Announcements !

Hi, Guys!
I can't believe September is over and more than that I can't believe that I haven't posted since middle of August.
September was a mediocre month for me.
I am glad that October is literally less than an hour away (from the time I am wiring this post). October is my favorite month in the year because fall is in October. It isn't too cold. Halloween, which is my favorite holiday, is in October. Lastly, my birthday is in October ! I am excited for my birthday this year more so than last year because I will be turning 20! I just can't believe that my teenage year will be ending soon.

Enough rambling, let's get into my September Favorites!

List of all my favoites:
Nume Lustrum Set
Bath and Body Works HardWorking Hand & Body Cream in Meyer Lemon
Loreal Youth Code Pore Vanisher
Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Eyeshadow in Beach Sand
NYC Color Wheel Mosaic Face Powder in All Over Bronze Glow
Lorac Pro Palette
Wet N Wild MegaSlicks Balm Stain in Rico Mauve and Lady and the Vamp
Taylor by Taylor Swift

I have decided to participate in October Blogging Challenge. 

This challenge was created by Gracie from Girl Meets Life (check out her blog Here!)

I just thought that I have been neglecting this blog for way too long and want to get into it again. I also have felt apart from Youtube as well so I'll also be trying to create more videos as well. Also, this will be my first blog related challenge, so I am excited to see how this would turn out. I think I might just combine the weekends and do them on Mondays, since I usually don't have anytime on weekends because of work. I hope you guys are excited for this ! 

What Products did you love in September? What do you think of my September favorites? Are you guys excited for October? Will you be checking my blog everyday for my October Blogging Challenge? Please leave me a comment !

Scent Review: Anna Sui La Vie de Boheme

Hi Guys!
Today, I am doing my first ever review on fragrance.
I recently mentioned in my July favorites Anna Sui Perfume.
On one of my many trips to Sephora with one of my friend, I discovered La Vie de Boheme by Anna Sui. I smelt it and fell in love with it and ordered it online within couple of days. (I bought the biggest one by the way)

I think the bottle looks absolutely adorable !
The bottle is flower design with the butterfly design cap.

It smells very warm and sweet to me. I am very bad at describing scent so that is all the description you will get from me. However, I really really love it and can't stop wearing it!

Note and Style described from Sephora:
Turkish Rose, Pear, Red Berries, Dragon Fruit, Magnolia, Peony, Freesia, White Wood, Skin Musk, Red Raspberries, Vanilla, Sandalwood Accord. 
Mysterious. Sultry. Confident

You can buy the perfume here
It is retails for: 
$46 for 1 oz 
$65 for 1.7oz
$78 for 2.6 oz 
and I don't think a roller ball is available for this fragrance. 

Have you guys seen this perfume? What do you think about it? Love it, hate it, want to check it out? Please leave me your thoughts on the comment! 

Daily Bits: 

  • I painted my nails with the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel nail polish in #270 Street Flair today. I hope it actually lasts for long time. 
  • I was pretty surprised by the lasting power of the One Direction nail polish (check out my review on the One Direction Makeup). It lasted four days with almost no chipping and my nails chip within one day ! The only thing is I am not sure if it lasted because the One Direction nail polish has amzaing formula or if it was because of the Julie G's JetSet top coat (my first time trying it). I'll have to let you guys know. 
  • I woke up with a cut on my finger! What did I do in my sleep? Such a mystery

A Look At One Direction Makeup!

Hi, Guys !
So I posted about the launch of One Direction Makeup about a week or two ago (check it out here for more info).
And I received the makeup kit in "Up All Night" last Thursday.

So my final thoughts on the One Direction Makeup kit is that overall I don't like it.
The only thing I actually liked from the kit was the nail polish.
All the other products in the kit seem pretty useless to me.
And I felt like the kit itself felt very cheap to me.

I felt like this make up kit would only work for like tweens or young teenagers, just so they can play around with some make up.

Check out my video for swatches and more info:
