Pretty Pinks

Today I bid my (first ever) long weekend goodbye and said hello to another work-week, but it's okay. I spent half the day researching about Italian cuisine and different types of coffee and dessert, so no, I didn't mind going back to work, I didn't mind it at all.

Besides, today was a pink and productive day for me. Some snaps from my Instagram:

Jeans - Penshoppe | Flats - MANELS
I've had this jacket since I was in college and it's one of my favorite items in my closet. Also, I'm not sure if you can see it but my tank top has a unicorn print on it. LOVE.

If I will be asked what my favorite makeup item is,
I will answer MAC Girl About Town in a heartbeat!
I had my first tube of this lippie as a present from my aunt last year and LOVED it instantly. Unfortunately, it was stolen with all my stuff when I was mugged. I tried to buy from local MAC counters but apparently this shade is not available here. I finally had the courage to buy myself another tube so last Friday I looked online for any local shops that may carry it, saw that Carefree Shopper has stocks, paid for it, and (because of the long weekend) received it today! Fast and efficient service, much recommended!

So creamy, so vibrant, and so pretty!
I love MAC lipsticks because of their staying and moisturizing power. Girl About Town never disappoints because with it, I feel like it's okay for me to go bare-faced --- one or two swipes of this lipstick is all I need to brighten up my face and feel pretty and dressed-up. I don't know if it's just me, but this shade makes me feel more girly, yet fearless at the same time... like I can do anything! I know that saying a makeup item can change one person's outlook may sound over-dramatic, but this color has proven to me it's true in my case heehee.

Battle of the pinks
Girl About Town vs Pink Nouveau
I bought Pink Nouveau last year to try to replace Girl About Town in my heart. It's a pretty shade that got me a lot of compliments, yes, but it was a little too bubblegum-pink for me. I'm just glad that both tubes are now sitting prettily on my vanity table.

Another busy day again tomorrow. I wonder what I'll wear ;)

"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie-burner.
I believe in kissing, kissing a lot.
I believe in going strong when everything seems to be going wrong.
I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls.
I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."
