peace, love, & lip gloss

hello!
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.

Hello. I missed you.

If we are friends in real life and/ or in social media you would know that I've been caught hook, line, and sinker by Animal Crossing: New Horizons since I got it in June. J got me a yellow Switch Lite and a copy of the game for our fifth anniversary, and it's been an endless source of joy …

What you need to know about Reverse Loans

Days blended into weeks into months, and before I realized it, it is September. Hi, folks, how are you? I spent the past few months paying off my home loan to Tom Nook and prettifying my island Soliantu. I am talking, of course, about Animal Crossing: New Horizons. My boyfriend gave me a yellow Swi…

“Nothing you can take from me was ever worth keeping.”

I used to pride myself in completing 20-30 books per year, which is easy to track thanks to Goodreads Reading Challenge, but as years passed this number kept dwindling. For 2019, I finished a measly seven books. It's not for the lack of reading material as I still One-Click at least one book ev…

Review: In Her Element Butterlips Conditioning Color

In the last two months and more that I have been home, I only ever stepped out of the gate once - to chase after a vendor selling ripe mangoes. Except for my birthday when I made sure I looked pretty, I haven't applied a full face makeup since we started working from home. Although I use Ellana…

34

Another year older.

Today I celebrated my 34th birthday without much fanfare. It is far from what I was accustomed to since I am used to month-long celebrations, but it doesn't mean I enjoyed it any less. I spent the day at home with my family, bonding over good food and great stories.

My Singapura Eleganza Photobook

I am turning 34 tomorrow in a couple of hours! Because of the enhanced community quarantine my original plans of spending my birthday weekend in Palawan to watch Survivor shoot in real life have been foregone and instead I will be holed up here at home with my family. Also ever since J and I becam…

#KrissyfiedBakes: Banana Bread

I believe in the value of celebrating even the smallest of wins, and today was a win for me! I finally got to try baking my very first banana bread, and it was a huge success with my family! 

It is moist, soft but not crumbly, and most importantly, it is delicious.

Getting ingredients is quite cha…

Review: Ellana Minerals Lip Drunk Blush

Working from home afforded me a little bit of extra time so I was able to dig drafts and stored photos, and I realized I haven't published my review of Ellana Minerals Lip Drunk Blush despite it being my go to-blush for a year now. I am posting quick reviews and swatches of the first five shade…
