Farewell to The Shoe of The Summer

Banana Republic Chelsea flats were my best friend last summer (reviewed here). I wore them during my PhD thesis writing and my epic trip back home in Asia for a month. They were comfortable and extremely chick looking. I eventually end up leaving it for my mom to wear around back home, because I was ready to move on. I might buy a patent leather or black one if I see them on sale or clearance. The Chelsea flats are definitely on my trustworthy purchase list in the future.

Currently, I am in search for a pair of splurge ballet flats with quality leather. I am in no rush, and have pretty high criteria for my purchase, so it is probably going to take some time. First, I am not going to pay full price, so it is going to be sales, clearance and outlet shopping. Second, it has to fit well. Third, I prefer somewhat neutral color for everyday wear. Clearly, these shoes don't  usually end up at discount stores,  so it would be my shopping challenge. So I guess you will see if I ever find a pair.

I am a beauty blogger and I don't have or want ...

1. I don't own any of the Naked Palettes and I am totally ok with it. I know people love them, but they are just way too shimmery for my taste. I really tried to like them due to their hypes, but every time I swatch, I can't get over the shimmer.

2. I don't own the Ikea Alex makeup storage drawers. I really do love how they look. I think they are perfect for collectors. I personally try to be a "buy what you need" person, so I don't see the need for Alex drawers at the moment. 

3. I don't own any Nars blushes or anything else from the brand for that matter. I don't know why, I just have this thing against overly hyped brands and products. Once, specially makeup gets this cult status, I just have this natural tendency to avoid them. I would not say I would never purchase anything from Nars, because I might...

4. I never wish I could blog for full time, because it would not be very fulfilling profession for me.  As a hobby, I absolutely love it and would continue to blog in the future. So I don't blog for PR samples, sponsored posts or anything like that unless I really like the product, because I am not planning on making living from blogging.

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadows Review

Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadows are known to be affordable alternatives for Georgia Armani Eyes To Kill cream eyeshadows. I personally never used the Georgia Armani ones, but based on my research Maybelline Color Tattoos come very close to them without the hefty price.

I have it in the Bad To The Bronze and Inked in Pink. I absolutely love them for a few reasons. They are just shimmery enough for daily use as all over color for my lid. They stay put all day without primer on my oily and hooded lids. Also, I use them as base and primer as well. 

Bad To the Bronze is very light brown when it is shear, and a beautiful bronze when you get the full pigmentation. Inked in Pink is light pink color that is just beautiful. I lusted over Urban Decay Naked 3, but after buying this, I was over the Naked 3, because Inked in Pink just provided me the color I was looking for. So if you are looking for care free everyday shadow for you eyes, you should definitely check them out.

Long Blazer Coat

Bag: Coach // Coat: similar // Shoes: similar // 
I don't really have much to say today. I have a test on wednesday and my last two weeks felt like it was a month. Fridays don't feel like fridays anymore, and weekends don't make much of a difference besides being able to sleep in a little bit. I think my life is going to be like this for a while.

I am just so happy that I can at least do some posts, but replying to comments and catching up with social media have been difficult. Please do understand that I am not ignoring you if I don't keep in touch. I need to get organized more so I have some dedicated time to blogging, which is going to be more sustainable in the long run with my busy schedule. 

Briefly about the outfit, shoes and the blazer are my mom's donation to me, hence I have no idea where they are from. I wore them when I went shopping the other day. Did not find anything, which was probably a good thing. Anyways, any organization tips for busy life is greatly appreciated in the comment section for real!
