URBAN Decay make up ,, yeah getting hooked on make up gurus at YouTube is a bad idea,, he he he ... an expensive hobby !!!! The good side s getting some tips and tricks , not only the show tutorials but they also do reviews on products .....

Since this is an American owned company , it is hard to find URBAN DECAY here in Oz, I went to look at the website but they do not ship Internationally , so my only chance is to find someone who can order it for me and then send it to me,,, I asked my sister and she twitted it to her friends and luckily CHIKAI of BuzzyMommy volunteered to do it!!!! HORRRAyyyy!!!!

It was such a hassle free stuff using paypal,, just a little hitch about the paypal fee when transferring a fund,, all sorted and when I received my stuff around early this year I cannot contain my excitement,,, YUpppp they are just bunch of make up stuff!!!!

The items arrived all intact and no damage at all...Happy withthe fact that t travelled far and they are all in good condition......

Back o school and something about acne

Back to SCHOOL again!!!!!! ahh 2 weeks of school holiday and today the kids are back to school .. For me,, this school holiday was meaningful since Lil Miss B started school last January and being with her at home is a delight ,, she is a smart little kiddo and she entertains me a lot with her inquisitive character....

I just like spending time with them,, even just chilling out at home or out doing something .
Big Miss M is also back in High school and before the school started ,, took her to her dermatologist again to check on her face since her acne came back again ,,, so she needs to go on medication again ,, while waiting at the doctors office I was reading the leaflets about acne and looking at the acne treatment reviews .

Hopefully this time her acne would clear up quick since I'm quite worried about her acne scars that leave a dark spot on her face... Anyway,, after getting the script off we went to the chemist to buy her meds ,,, so it would be a long 6 months of medication.... ahhh teenage life !!! what a pain!!!!


Anyway

My kids love to go grocery shopping with me ad they both like going in the shopping trolley ,, and for sure they would start playing with the machine and muck around with it so it would be just a constant "Don't TOUCH it" drama for me and my kids ...
But as what everyone was commenting,, "Does it trolley go Straight?"" Yeahh,, I hate that trolley that is hard to manoeuvre ,, sometimes I have to hold on to the sides just to make it go straight and with kids inside its just hard and heavy to push..... Just an easy to push trolley please!!!!! That's what I wanted to use!!!
Anyway,, as they say that it is a ploy for advertisement and mostly the big companies have the best advantage because they can show ads and commercial on the screen so some small companies swill have to work had with their ads use traditional ads like door hangers print ads, mail ads and so much more...
So its not only for the consumer but for the Big company who will reap big profits ....

Mommy Moments ( Yellow )

mommy moments

Yes,, its Mommy Moment time again,, although I haven't been active lately ,, every now and then I would check up on Mommy Chris' blog to see whats the latest...

Anyways, This week theme is Yellow and I remember that I have a cute pic of my daughter with yellow chicken on her hair during Easter Sunday...

I LOVE doing lil Miss Bianca's hair everyday,, yeah I make sure that when you goes to school I would do her hair nice and she always get compliments with her hair and she is very excited to try new hair styles and show them off..
After taking a shower in the morning I would fix her hair up while ii is still damp , so its easy for me to style it and part it the way I wanted it...

Easter time when tried to do this style for her


I did a zig zag part on the back
Parted the top into 5 sections, plaited it and bunched it up .

2 pony tails at the back then did fish tail on it

Placed a yellow chicken on it and she just love em.... but my boy B1 was cranky because it was his chicken that was on his Easter hat that he used for the Easter hat parade in school... he wasn't happy with the idea that I took it and placed it on B2 hair ...... :( :( :(






See more YELLOW entries on her site .... MommyJOurney




I have heaps of photos of her with different hairstyles and I will post them ,, I just ahve to check up on things to be done at home like reviewing cheap term life insurance .

Still have Chocolate Easter Eggs

Easter had passed and here we are still have loads of Chocolate Easter Eggs at home.... Basketful of them on the kitchen table,, although my kids like to eat choco , but strange enough they do not touch the choco on the table!!!

Wonder why... maybe they're all sick and tired of it ... or its is not Cadbury brand.......hmmmmm


Anyway,, every now and then my hubby and I would eat them when kids are already sleeping and coffee time and snack for Mum and Dad while hubby watch TV and I use the net..
It is just a BIG temptation!!!
Sometimes Im thinking of just chucking them in the bin.....

That is what I hate about Easter ... Too much chocolate!!!! If I can just throw them to all my nephews and nieces in Pinas ,,, for sure they would appreciate them....

Anyway,,,, Im just bulking myself here ,,, all the choco are stored in my thighs, belly and hips arrrrrrrgghhhh

I need a diet pills for that, but dont know about diet pill side effects so maybe I should just hop on my WiFit again,, what you reckon???

School Holiday still

It is still school holiday here and we have 6 more days to go till the kids go back to school and the kids are keeping me busy...
I love school holiday ,, I really appreciate it now,,since I go to hubby's work 3 time a week ,, Its school holiday and it means I am on holiday too .. so I can look after the kids...before I am always on holiday but now I am loving the school holiday because I can stay at home everyday and be with kids ,, since my lil Miss started school last January ,, I've been missing her company,, she is fun to be with,, she is such a chatter box and love spending time with me ,, and my big boy who is always a good , shy boy ,, still makes me happy o be with him,, and my Big Girl,, well... she works during school holiday and when she's off she is allowed to watch a movie or go shopping,, I guess she doesn't want to hang around with the kids ,, since she would be complaining about kids activities,, she's turning 16 and have different interest now...

Activities involve art and crafts which lil Miss enjoys so much,, a visit to the library ,, having cousin over for a sleep over , watched the movie Nanny Macphee and How to train your Dragon; Shopping,, watching the kids show at the mall and tomorrow a visit to the park with my friends..
and during this time I spent time taking photos sometimes using my DSLR or my Iphone which I keep in my IMac and I was looking at it and now I almost have 15,700+++ photos uploaded in there ,, Whooaaaaaa,, that is huge... Don't know if I have to look for more bigger hard drives for that ....
So I have to transfer some of them into my External hard drive ...

One thing hat I started but not yet finished is my 2009 photo a day,,, yeah its 2010 now and I am so slack and lost interest on it,, but until now I still take a photo a day ,, that's is why I have a huge amount of photos ....
Anyway,, I have to find the groove toy start it again,, even though my sis JenL who is so patient to do digi scrap I still have no motivation...
Hopefully soon I'll can finish it.....


Our day at the Easter show



We visited the Sydney Royal Easter show which runs from April 1 -14, It is the largest event here in Australia.

We went there last April 5 Monday which is a public holiday here in Oz and boy oh boy it was jam packed ... With all the events that was happening with thousand of things to do ,, I was already suffering from a head ache ,, good thing I bought a Nurofen ..
The first thing that we did was to go around the livestock area , so the kids can see the Farm animals and went to the Farmyard nursery where the kids can pat and feed the baby animals ,, and my lil Missy was freaking out because there was a hungry lamb that was following us,,, so as we walked around the area my hubby was carrying Lil Miss,, and I was trying to calm her down so that she can pat the animals ,,

How can we ever have a Farm animals when we move to an acreage ???? I guess they will get used to it,, even my Big boy was hesitant to pat the animals..
Anyway,, as we moved on we went to the Chooks area, or the poultry which Lil Miss is still unhappy eventhough the chooks and the ducks are in the cages ,, ok ok ,, lets move......
The Dairy Farm,,,, but yeah,, anything with four legs they don't want to appreciate !!!!!!


So one thing that they like was the carnival fair with all the rides for kids and adult and all the carnival games where you can win some big stuffed toys ....

Hubbhy and I enjoyed the Toyota V6 Hilux show and my boy loves the Robosaurus the fire breathing carnivorous monster ,, the main arena was packed that afternoon and we were sitting on the wet grass area,, and suffered from a leg cramps after the show ,, it was choc a block ....!!

!


We also visited the Woolworths Fresh Food dome and food lovers walk which you can sample some products and I think you will be all stuffed out after tasting all the food . Huge place where you can smell the nice food and buy special products...


There are heaps of shows left and right and too much to mention,,, It was worth going there and get entertained ,, a whole day event and loads of FUN!!!!!




But of course the main part is the SHOWBAG!!!! Thousand of them!!!!!! Showbag for kids and adult and when you go inside the Showbag pavilion be ready to go home with more than 4 showbags !!!!!!!!!

But over all it was a good experience for the kids and for us,,, my kids were wonderful and well behaved lil humans and we are quite happy with that even though we spent alot!!!!!!!

Black Hair Again.....

Yeah,,, after all these years of dyeing and bleaching my hair ,, my hair is starting to Protest!!!!!
My hair had always been coloured from Red, brown and blonde and with the years of hair abuse for sure my hair is screaming out "give me a rest!!""

After bleaching my hair to blonde last December ,,, when I came back from our holiday ,, Ive noticed that my hair is falling off, I know its natural to have falling hair ,, but this time its freaking me out because whenever I ran my fingers on my hair I can have a large amount of fall out my hubby is also complaining and joking that I am Like a molting dog ,, hair everywhere in the shower, bed, kids room and even food,,,, errrrrrr!!!!!!


I am worried that this is not normal ,,, so I decided this time to dye my hair back to black ,, since my natural hair colour is already showing on my roots ,,, so instead of having it bleached again ,, I opted to go back to Black,, and might maintain this colour for awhile ,,,




I have to research for remedies for my hair problem ,,,some tips that Ive encountered was to have hair moisturized by using Coconut oil / milk,, hmmm,, not bad,,,, I remember when I was young my mum used to put coconut milk on my hair , so went out and look for it...

Found this Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk.... and tried it , put a generous amount on my hair and then wrapped it with warm towel and placed a shower cap on ,, waited for a while and rinsed it off....

The result was instant ,, my hair feels light and it has a body and bouncy and the smell,,,, hmmmm if you don't like Coconut smell then you will hate it ,, because it is so empowering ... I can still smell my hair after 4 days .. I don't dislike the smell,, I just don't know if I like it or not,, does it make sense???/ Well,, it smells like my fave dish Ginatan,, which is a delicacy in the Philippines ,, maybe its just making my mind confused ,, because I always associate the smell of coconut with food not on my hair,,,, That's why its kinda weird,,, anyway,, I'm getting used to it and I even asked my hubby if the smell bothers him,, he said its fine,, knowing him , h wont lie to me about it...so its means the smell is OK ...


Ahh,, my hair is straight , shiny and healthy,, although I still have fall outs but I guess it wont be an instant remedy for that....




I also stopped using BRUSH,, instead I use the wide comb to do my hair
Wash my hair every other day
Switched to a salon shampoo that specifically for making the hair strong ; the hairdresser advised that since I told her that I used Pantene and she told me that Pantene is strong .

Yupp,, next in line is to go on a diet,,, I feel frumpy and needed to shed some kilos ,, maybe diet pills can help.......

Clean Time

Since Ive got my Sigma Make up Brushes (which is by the way,, a good quality make up brushes that I am loving so far)It is recommended to clean them every after use but I guess I dont have time to do it everyday but I make it sure to clean them thoroughly once a week.



I fill my sink or small bowl with a couple of inches of warm water (depending on how many brushes you have to wash) and add a capful of baby shampoo (about a tablespoon) and add a little bit of Olive oil ...
Place the brushes in the solution and gently rub the bristles between your fingers for at least 30 seconds for each brush.

Rinse each brush thoroughly in warm water, making sure to get all shampoo residue off.

Pat the brushes dry with the towel, then lay them flat on the towel, reshaping the bristles, and keep them in a warm, dry location to finish air-drying completely. You may need to reshape the bristles on the brushes so that they retain their proper shape after they dry.

And in the morning I've got a fresh clean Make up Brushes!!!!!! NICE!!!!!!!!!

Quiet Day

Its Good Friday and what a quiet day today,,, No going out , no shopping, no eating out,,, instead its the best time to stay at home do some chores,,,, ahhh,,, Laundry time and I think I did 6 loads of washing today ,,,, the sun is out and good thing to take clothes , even beddings outside , since my bot sufferers from asthma whenever there is too much dust and if he gets in contact with cats ,, so he needs a good allergy bedding that is clean and free of allergens.

The kids are running up and down the stairs ,,bored and just making a mess, and my hubby and I were constantly telling them not to make a MESS..... Its 5 pm here now and the day is almost over and we did absolutely chilling out ,, as my teenager would say....
