Alliterations are amusing. Chandeliers, cheesecakes, and charm bracelets make me happy. My blog aims to spread pink, positive thoughts and pretty little things. Send me some love and kisses via mail@krissyfied.com.

Welcome to the carnival!

We are currently enjoying special non-working holidays in honor of the Papal visit to the Philippines and while I didn't personally join the throngs of people who went to get even just a glimpse of him, our TV has been glued to the live coverage since he arrived yesterday. May he have a peaceful and fruitful stay here.

In a short while I'll start getting ready for a slumber party with my friends, but right now I wanted to do a quick post here about the week that was. I went to work for only two days because I was scheduled to be on leave on Wednesday for my passport renewal, so I had to squeeze in a lot of to-dos in preparation for two major events we'll have later this month. Crossing my fingers both of them will be successful!

On Tuesday I took part in a shoot for Mat Magique, L'Oreal's newest oil control foundation that promises 12-hour matte perfection! It was such an honor to belong in a league of other beautiful women made up and shot by no less than BJ Pascual! I will share more photos from the shoot soon, but here's a peek:

I battled traffic and went out with my friends for late dinner and dessert that night, and although I had to remove my makeup before sleeping at around 11PM, I can attest to how Mat Magique held up even after six hours! I also have a review and a giveaway coming up so watch out for that. ;)

The next day, I made sure I wouldn't look dead in my passport photo so I took these essentials with me: Mat Magique in Golden Ivory, Colour Riche Lipcolor in Fairy Touch, Le Blush in Rosewood, and Super Liner Gelmatic Pen in Blue Force. Everything is by L'Oreal. I recently had my bangs botched by a fail fringe-trim job and it's taking its sweet time growing back so I also had my brows groomed by Browhaus. They're the best!

I didn't know why I was so worried, it took me less than 30 minutes to have my passport renewed in DFA - SM Manila! I hope more government functions get automated. Getting stuff done online = less time falling in line = more time for other important things.

Like window shopping.

After accomplishing what I originally went there to do, I walked around SM Manila. It was our go-to mall in college since it's just walking distance from my university. I loved this dress worn by the mannequin and wanted to buy it so badly because its watercolor print appealed to me, but I had to pass as I need to prioritize other things. My EQ is getting stronger, yay.

Later that night, my friends and I got together for Dianne's daughter Kaylee's birthday party. Kiddie parties with [young] adults are the best. They're the same friends I'm seeing tonight!

And since our non-working holidays started yesterday, I had time to make art. These are for my friends:

For Niel, because she loves The Little Mermaid
For Dianne, because she loves Cinderella
... and this is for myself:

Welcome to the carnival! Everyone is welcome! ♥
