Happy Heart's Day + NOTW Vintage-y Roses

Happy Heart's Day to all!

This is one of my favorite occassions, not just because things get to be in red and pink, but because it's a good day to tell your loveone(s) that they are in you heart.

A quick NOTW here. I used OPI Pink Friday and Wnw Candy-licious & Through the Gravevine to make roses. 

Here's a card I made for my hubby:

And one funny card too:

I cannot wait for his reaction. Haha. :)
So, whether you are having a date or not, it really doesn't matter. 
What's important is you give love and you are being loved.

OPI Nicki Minaj + Joico

The studio I have worked last Saturday (see my post HERE) is next to a Cosmoprof. During our spare time, hairstylist Leanne headed next door and did some mini-shopping. She got tools and stuff for her hair kit, and of course, I got stuff for myself. Haha.

Bubblegum Pink, Did It On 'Em, Fly

I have been wanting these 3 polishes from the OPI Nicki collection that was released early this year. I feel bad in purchasing them in full price online when I know I can have them at a discounted price using my pro discounts, but I am not in the mood to go to Naimies or any store of the same. Maybe in my fear of overspending? But since I was already there and these bottles are calling my name, I gave in.
bad lighting washed the colors out? ;( eeek.

I got them for only $4.00 plus the "i hate california" tax.

Joico Moisture Recovery
I also bought these Joico Mosture Renewal Shampooo and Conditioner as per her recommendation. Let me see how this will work out on me. :) A liter each of professional grade hair stuff for $7.50+tax each! Amazon sells them as a duo for $35.98 plus $7.49 shipping fee Geesh!

If we had more time, I could have killed my wallet!

*Oh, I also got some new WnW stuff from the drugstore :)
On A Trip, Candy-licious, Through The Grapevine

Now, I cannot decide which one to wear first.....

When artists gets bored on a shoot...


Last Saturday we had a series of private photoshoots. I have teamed up with my favorite photographer and hairstylist. It's a 3 separate session of 2hrs each, but unfortunately one did not show up, therefore leaving us free playtime. LOL.

Photographer Brian testing Profotos:

Master Hairstylist Leanne testing a new curling iron on me:

Hahaha, I know.. Yes you can laugh too. I find this pic funny, since I am not a model and was just throwing roses on that fur blanket. LOL. But hey, I think the pose was great, especially my Chuck Taylors! When this was posted by the photographer on my FB the other day, I wished I made my self up too! Hahaha. And ooh-la-la I had so many hair! 

We had so much fun catching up and picking each other's brain!

I love private shoots, our clients felt so pretty and well made up, and they even partied that night with their GFs with the "Look" we made for them. Pictures are still in the process of choosing/editing, and as soon as I get copies I will try to post :D

NOTW: I see yellow leopard gecko.

Hi dolls!!

Before I get swamped on all things pink and red this month, I want to give this sunny yellow a chance to shine.

I have done this design a lot of times before but not in yellow. I drew the leopard pattern using a toothpick.

Oh, and below is the inspirational dude:

I am blogging using my iPhone today, I apologize. I will be busy for shoots this weekend so better take pics now or I might miss this chance. haha
