My first visit to CNA this year!~ :D They have a lot of new sparkly, fluffy, neon hair accessories and all things kyeopta!!! omo my kpop bling bling heart became happy :)
But because I was poor :))) I intentionally did not bring more than 200 pesos with me. And that move really saved me from buying more than what I need :> hihihihi~
NEED hahaha!!! BLACKJACK baby~ :D This name plate is just so pretty and cool like 2NE1~~ Please have a comeback soon!!! <3
After almost a year since it’s release, do you still wanna be sweet??? Malgeum! The weather is really cold these days and I’m loving it! :D So this toner, somehow, is weather appropriate! :>
If this is your first time hearing the word Mal:gem then the next words are for you :) Mal:gem or Malgeum is the Korean word for cleanness, clarity and pureness.
Skin Malgeum are hypoallergenic toners created by Etude House to promote clean, clear and pure complexion with moisturizing and pore cleansing formulas.
Watch Jonghyun sing about not letting moisture run dry! XD
Skin Malgeum Moist replenishes and retains moisture on a daily basis to help maintain a protective layer. The more you pat onto skin, the more moist it becomes so don’t forget to ‘tok tok tok’
More singing… by Shinee!!! omo~~ LSS XD
This big bottle of Skin Malgeum can be used in many ways :D As a regular toner, a mask (they say it can be used as a 30 second mask but 30 seconds sounds really funny XD) and spray on which is a lie!
WARNING: If you’re hoping that you could use the Skin Malgeum Spray Bottle with this particular variant then do not expect!!!! The consistency is thick so when sprayed the trajectory is just straight on! XD
I have no new year’s resolutions whatsoever~ but I do have a goal!!! And that is to own a DSLR camera :»> This is all because of Film 110~~~ Playing and taking photos with a trusty SLR is so delightful! <3
Ultimate Goal~ here I come!!! Starting the year with a goal! Allowance please come to me :)))
Erika’s Weather Forecast: OMO Etude House Philippines’ fan page is getting some hate comments, cause Dara is no longer the endorser~~~ I’m sad too :« I hope Sulli & Krystal could live up to Dara’s beautiful~ness >,< fighting!
Kekeke XD Sounds like MMK??~ Well I’m just SUPER DUPERLY happy that finally!!!!!~ after like months of wanting a satchel… I finally have one!!!! <333 Dream come true!!! (*pssttt… me not seeing Lee Min Ho is also a contributor for getting this satchel XD)
Yeah, I got this liquid eye liner too XD Because I needed a replacement for my Drawing Show Gel Liner! Oh~ m’ Eye Line! I saw this being one of the items to create Dara’s newest Holiday 2012 endorsement Doll Up look for Etude House!!!~
Dara is SOOOO GORGEOUS!!! True krung krung goddess!!! She’s like the best cosmetic makeup model/endorser ever!!!
Anyhoo~ back to the satchel story ^^ I was saving up to buy a genuine leather satchel which costs about 3000+ pesos @.@ (RED TAG, meaning it has minor scratches) But when I checked the site it was already sold! Aigoo~~
It’s kinda hard to find a nice satchel here in the Philippines, I know there are online sellers and makers but I personally like to feel and inspect the actual product (with my magnifying vision that can see flaws XD), the only shops I know that sells satchels here are SM Department Store (Parisian, small satchels which are pretty cheap but the material was not that good and the buckles kinda were sharp @.@), Penshoppe (for now they have cute two tone satchels :» small and not for school~), Apple & Eve (too small for my taste too~ a satchel there costs 1000+ pesos), Folded&Hung (all their 15 inches satchels were already sold @.@ so none left for me :«<), Steve Madden (the price for a small satchel was around 4000 pesos~ for me I can’t afford it and it would not fit the requirements of a school bag, a party bag perhaps XD) and last is Cole Vintage! <3 My savior!!!
Z Z Z z z z…. How much sleep do we really need??? Yahoo’s article is really informative~ (click Sandara to read the full article ;) ) off to bed now #,#
Erika’s Weather Forecast: achenDANCE tomorrow! Show support to ID!! <33 :D
Konnichiwa!!! Saizen is definitely a great place to hang out! You could see everything that the Japanese could create to make life “easier”?!~ Innovations too XD During my recent trip there I got to take a nice big wooden photo frame, magazine storage bag, and Royal Milk Tea!~ (the white photo frame was from Robinson’s department store :D)
And what photo did I attach on the photo frame? Dara’s photo of course~ kekeke XD Serves as an inspiration when doing eye make because I placed the photo frame on my vanity :>
Print out~ :) Kodak photo paper is awesome for printing photos at home!
Edgy and clean! <3 This is by far my favorite eye makeup!!! <3
Wazzup we 2NE1~ kekeke. 2NE1, being my bias, has caught my attention because of their swagger and uniqueness! And that includes their eye makeup!
So I’ll be showing how to do Dara, Minzy, Bom and CL eyemakes! Nolza!
What you’ll need: Black Gel Liner, Crystal Cream Eyeshadow Stick and Black Shadow
Etude House Drawing Show Creamy Liner Black, Etude House Ms. Tangerine Gradation Eyes and Tony Moly Crystal Stick Eye Shadow Cream
Tools needed: Angled Shadow Brush and A Fine Tip Eyeliner Brush
Etude House Eyebrow Brush, Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Eyeliner Brush
A. First up, the very beautiful and youthful Dara Park. She is known for her adorably funny personality, which really shines and makes her a gazillion times prettier!
She looks beautiful whether or not she has makeup on. She looks stunning either way. The eye makeup that suits her best is a thin winged eyeline makeup!
Done! You now have a fierce feminine eye make just like Dara’s!
B. Full of talent and swag, this maknae is considered one of the best dancers in the KPOP world! Gong Minzy often exudes a sexy vibe!
Who here keeps cute boxes of products?? :) If you are like me who can’t help but keep the boxes then you could create an easy wall deco for your vanity :>
You’ll need some magic tape to stick your cut outs to your wall :D Why magic tape??? So that the paint won’t peel off in case you want to take them down :)
Big and small scissors :D It’s good if you have small scissors so that you could cut out tight corners :)
Most of my boxes came from Etude House :D kekeke such nice packaging :> Also cut out the strips of illustration on the boxes for easy tips on how to apply makeup! :D
“YESSSSSS!!!!” That was the first word that I thought of when I read the “upcoming stores” list on Princess Talk! My Home town mall! XD ~,~ Now, Etude House is just a tricycle ride away :>
So before going home~ Princess Abee, who is an Etude House addict too ;), and I went to see the new store! <3
I love the size :> I miss the small Etude House at SM Mega XD Am I weird??? :)) There is something about small boutiques that makes them more appealing to me :> Oh the very nice SA who took photos for us :> Kamsa hamnida! She recognized me :D she was an SA at SM Masinag, where all the nicest SAs are :D, & now she’s stationed at Rob :> So very nice :D
Here’s a mini story :)
The Hallyu Wave has definitely reached many parts of Asia! The wave is a mixture of K-Pop, K-drama & movie, Korean food and of course, the thing that makes Korean celebs beautiful- Korean cosmetics! Currently, Korean cosmetic brands have become an important part of a girl’s (and guy’s) collection of beauty essentials so here’s a list of some brands that already have made or are still making a mark in the international community. These are brands are available in my country, the Philippines and in other parts of Asia/Southeast Asia as well.
Fancy yourself some Korean Cosmetic goodies and instantly feel SeOul beautiful! kekeke~
1. Beauty Credit or Somang 소망화장품
It’s a very nice brand which is sadly not as popular as the others. It’s being endorsed by the lovable and youthful 구혜선 Ku Hye Sun, best known as Boy’s Over Flower’s Geum Jandi! The items are beautifully packed and they look really classy and cute at the same time. Adorable rocking horse as an emblem! The prices are very affordable and reasonable.
2. Etude House 에뛰드 하우스
I’m sure most of you guys know the next brand, considering that they received 106,000+ likes (and counting) on Facebook! I think that Etude House’s Philippine fan page has the most number of likes amongst all the Etude House fan pages all over the world! It’s a pink playhouse fit for a girly girl princess, afterall.
Welcome to Etude House!
Their interiors are filled with pink goodness! Yup, they managed to place a chandelier in a small space. ^^ What I love most about Etude House is that they value their costumers dearly! They’ll treat you like royalties by calling you “Princess” or “Prince” whenever you’d enter the shop! They would also assist you and they are very welcoming. Their products are the girliest ones out there in the market, which is just one reason why I’m a big fan! Their cuteness appeal is overwhelming for those who will enter the shop the first time. I like that they have a specific audience and focuses on how to make that audience happy! Their girly appeal may not suit everybody but it sure draws a lot of attention.
They also change products really frequently, and I MEAN REALLY REALLY frequently… It’s both a bad and a good thing! Bad thing is that your favorite product might get phased out. Good thing is that you would always have something new to look forward to!
As for the price range, it’s quite affordable and you’ll be sure that the quality is great! Their BB creams are a must-try and you could start having a nail polish collection from their numerous color palette! I am a great fan of their brushes too!
Say “Annyong haseyo” to my new Princess Pocket Galaxy! kekeke~ wondering why my phone is now a princess?? Cause it’s got a crown silly! :>
We went to Manila today :D A chance to visit C.N.A :) Ahhh they have a lot of new stuff since the last time I went there! *See C.N.A First Korean Fancey Shop in the Philippines! Cute spiked headbands, cds and phone charms :»>

Erika’s Weather Forecast: Fangirl much???!
Annyong haseyo! :) I’m so excited to share to you my shopping experience at C.N.A. yesterday :» Went to Manila and stayed at Robinson’s Adriatico~ and because the shop was like a five minute walk away (not counting the elevator trip down the condo kekeke) I made sure to go see it~ being a Korean thing addict and all (plus I heard they were selling ribbon clips :)) XD)
C.N.A. officially opened its first branch in Manila last May 19, 2012. C.N.A., which stands for “Culture, Nature, Art” is a concept store that sells fancy jewelries such as earrings, necklaces and bracelets, hair ornaments, trinkets and other fashion accessories and even Korean cosmetics and albums of K-pop idols! All of the products are made and imported from Korea.
If you’re into things that are cute, kawaii, aegyo, pretty, sparkly, edgy, hip, pretty, stylish, shiny and all things good then you should definitely definitely visit the shop! It was like a Korean things wonderland for me :) :>
… KPOP albums! :) A Korean Fancy Shop would not be complete without K-idols right? :D Kim Hyung Joong album right there!
Some of the Kpop albums that caught my interest :D From my YG family: Big Bang and 2ne1~ Secret <3 2pm, SNSD cds :) I was looking for Miss A but I think they were already sold out ~,~
Eh eh eh eh eh eh eh 2ne1! I already have this album as a gwp from Etude House but this one looks prettier and looks like it has more content! :))
Phone charms that are so cute! Most are couple charms XD kekeke~ #foreveralone
This one for me was the prettiest :> Simple and cute!
Onto the hair accessories!!~ :) OMO if you love hair accessories you’d go crazy over the wide selection that you could find at CNA!
Usa mimi elastics :> very famous in Japan and in Korea!
My favorite hair accessory! Can make you look pretty and polished!
Those headbands reminded me of Kim Tae Hee when she played Korea’s Princess (Korean Drama: My Princess)
More of the adorable Usa Mimi headbands!!
This is such a bongga headband (It’s color and design reminds me of Go Min Nam’s hairclip from You’re Beautiful~ only more fabulous! XD)
Aigoo aigoo aigoo!!!~ TOO MANY HAIR CLIPS! <3 AHH!!! It was like a whole island made for a ribbon/sparkly hair accessory fangirl like me :))
Aren’t these cute? :) Same as my GetStyle: 49 Days Song Yi Kyung Big Hair Clip!
