Coach and H&M Sneakers

Being a high school student, I usually sleep late and I wake up really early in the morning. Sometimes, I don't have time to really fix myself, so I usually just put on jeans with a t-shirt paired with a cute pair of sneakers, and I'm ready to go:D


This weekend, I went shopping with my family. And since it's almost time for school again, I had to shop for "school-appropriate" clothes. These are the two sneakers that I bought. I really think they're both cute. I'm so excited to wear them!


I purchased this Coach sneakers at Marshall's for $70. I fell in love with this pair of shoes the moment I saw them. It's so cute:D


I love how it's extremely colorful. I'll be able to wear these with any colored tees or even tank tops. That's already multiple outfits for school, which is definitely a plus!


This is how it looks from the back. Cute, huh?


The next shoes that I purchased are these white H&M sneakers. I couldn't decide whether to get the multi-colored one or these plain white ones. I went with these because it can pretty much go with anything. And they were only $14.95.


I'm actually thinking of wearing them on the first day of school. I'm going to pair them with my black DKNY jeans and a colored t-shirt. And maybe, I'll accessorize it a little bit:)


Sneakers are definitely one of the best piece of "clothing" you can buy out there. They can be worn with pretty much everything. And I mean everything: dresses, shorts, skirts, jeans, or even sweats.

I also think that wearing sneakers is a good way to dress down an outfit. If you have a somewhat formal dress and you feel like wearing it on a normal day at the mall, you can pair it up with sneakers and you'll definitely make the whole "get-up" casual!

And let's admit it, sometimes dressing up gets tiring, right? And I'm positive that we all get our lazy days. Well then sneakers is the right shoes for you on those days. Dress them up a little bit, and you'll definitely be looking cute while looking casual:D

What's your favorite pair of sneakers?! Are you into them or not?

What's your favorite candy?: Ring Pop

When I was a little girl, this was my favorite candy:D

I remember everyday when my eldest sister comes home from school, I would always extend my hand to her because I know that she bought me a ring pop!

And she surprised me with a strawberry-flavored one yesterday. Yay!

What was/is you favorite childhood candy?!

Polyvore: Lauren Conrad's Looks for Less

Hey ladies, it's been awhile since I made a Polyvore Creation:D So here it is!

I wanted to do something different so I decided to do a few of Lauren Conrad's looks for less. Ever since Laguna Beach, I've always loved Lauren's sense of style. It's so cute. And I know that some of her things are really expensive, so what I did is I re-created her looks by combining different affordable pieces from many different stores:D
Lauren Conrad Outfit Mash-UpFashion Trends & Styles - Polyvore

One advice that I have is that you don't always have to buy new clothes to recreate a look. You can use whatever is in your closet and just mix n' match. I'm sure you'll be able to pull it off:)

I took the time to list where I got all of the pieces. I also have the prices. Lemme know if you guys want me to list them down or do an individual post for each outfit. I'd be more than glad to do them for you guys:DDD

Don't be shy!!!

What do you think? Is there an individual outfit you'd like me to do a separate post on?

Murad Acne Complex Review

Like any other teenager out there, I am also going through the acne/breakout stage. And I know, firsthand, that it's extremely frustrating. I started to get breakouts when I started drill. I've mentioned before that I was in my school's drill team, and we had practice everyday from 3-6:30pm. And what I usually did when I got home, was basically eat, do homework, and then go to sleep. This was really bad because all the sweat and dirt in my face created bacteria which caused me to start breaking out.

Ever since then, I have been breaking out constantly! I literally tried everything. I think I tried about 5 different acne solutions. Some of them worked, while some just made it worse. And just when i was about to give up, I found the Murad Acne Complex:DDD

I was watching tv, and the commercial of Murad came on. I figured that it wouldn't hurt to try it. I was kind of "iffy" about it at first, but then I said "What the heck, I'll just go and buy it." Last January, I purchased it at Sephora and it was about $65 which is pretty cheap actually. The picture above is the package that I got.

I wanted to show you guys how it looked like, so I took a picture of the flap that you can lift up:D

This is the first thing you see when you lift up the flap cover. It's kind of like a window-ish of the products:D

The first picture is what you see under the flap cover. It tells you what the doctor says about the products. And he explains how it works and what it does to your skin. And the second picture is the instructions which you will find inside the 1st photo.

These are the 4 Murad acne products inside the package. (I'm really sorry if it looks like it's almost finished because I've had this for a couple of months now and I've kind of used it up already:D)

This is the clarifying cleanser. It's strong and the smell is really medicinal. But it's not bad. haha. When you're gently rubbing it on your face, you can automatically feel the minty, fresh "flavor" to it. And it definitely feels like it's doing it's job.

This is the Exfoliating Acne Treatment Gel. It looks really liquid-ish but when you apply it, it's really slimy. And the smell is extremely strong. I really like this one because it really feels like it's cleaning your pores and your acne/breakouts. And of course, you'll definitely feel a little stinging:D

After, you apply the Exfoliating Gel, the acne spot treatment is next. You only have to apply this to your individual pimple. This really worked for me. I put it on before I go to sleep at night, and the next morning, my pimples are like almost gone:) You have to let it dry and leave it on for a couple of minutes before applying the Skin Perfecting lotion.

This is the very last step. And It works as a moisturizer. It may feel very oily when you put it on, but your skin will eventually absorb it.

The lady at Sephora told me that the whole package will last you about 3 months. And the reason why I still have some right now is because I kinda stopped using it. My dermatologist gave me another acne cream, so I postponed using it for awhile:/

And I just started it again recently. It definitely cleared up my skin before and it's still clear now. I still get breakouts here and there, but they eventually disappear. I would recommend it, but keep in mind that results may vary. It may work for you, but it can also have a different result on another person. But I think that it's worth a shot especially if it means getting clear skin, right?

What do you think? Have you tried it before? What was your results?

TAG: You're it!

This week, I was tagged twice by 2 different bloggers. They're both different tag posts. But I'm just going to be doing both in this one post:D

1.) 5 Product Face

The lovely R May A tagged me for this "5 product face" challenge. For this tag, I'm going to have to do my make-up using only 5 products.

I wasn't really going anywhere spectacular today so I just chose to do a light make up. This morning when I was looking through my make-up drawers, I was trying to pick out 5 products that I could use. I couldn't complete the look with out putting colored lip balm on, so I'm kind of changing this tag up a bit. haha. It's now going to be called "6 Product Face." I'm not really sure if I'm allowed to do this, but oh well.

These are the 6 products that I used:D

To cover all my imperfections I used:

-Neutrogena Light to Medium foundation

- Mac's NW25 concealer

For my eyes, I used:

- Loreal's Voluminous Mascara

-Avon's smooth eye definer

And for my cheeks and lips, I used:

-Jane's oil free bronzer

-Jane's Mineral Lip Balm

And now, I am tagging these wonderful bloggers:






2.) TAG: you're it

I have been tagged by the amazing Breee to answer her questions and then pass my own questions to my other hard working and deserving bloggers.

Here are her questions for me:

1. Who inspires you the most?

Hmmm, I'm gonna say my family. haha. Cliche as it sounds, they're always there for me. And I love them for that.

2. Name one thing that means a lot to you.

One thing that means a lot to me would be my education! I think it's very important because I want to succeed in my future. And to do that, I have to get the best education I possibly can;D.

I want to attend UC San Diego after I graduate from high school:D

3. What makes you cry?

A lot of things. When I can't finish any essay. Love stories that ends in tragedy. My little annoying brother. Spiders and cockroaches. Stress in school:)

4. If I was a genie and I could grant your 3 wishes, what would you wish for?

That would be so awesome. Let's see. I would wish for good health for all of my loved ones, 1 million dollars, and to be able to meet/hangout with a celebrity.

5. What is your ideal date?

My ideal date would be having dinner at a fancy restaurant. Aaaaand maybe watching a movie:D Oh and just walking around and getting to know each other more.

6. What is your favorite quote of the moment?

I've always loved "I just need to know if it's possible for two people to stay happy together forever." Aww. Another one of my favorites is "Why waste a perfectly good flower, when you know he loves you not."

7. Which is more important? Being happy or making someone happy? (Keep in mind it is not the same thing, because you make someone happy and be miserable at the same time)

I'd would say both. Because I think that you have to be happy first before you can even make someone happy:D Does that make sense? haha.

8. What is your favorite corny pick-up line?

"Can I have a picture of you? I want to show Santa what I want for Christmas." Oh my gosh, this just gets to me every time. hahaha.

Phew! That was fun. Now here are my own questions:

1. What is your all-time favorite store? and I want you to make a whole outfit from that store.

2. Which 2010 movie did you like the best?

3. What do you like best about the summer?

4. Which country would you want to live in aside from the country you're in now?

5. If you were given the chance to be in a movie, which actor/actress would you want to work with?

6. Name one random fact about yourself:)

7. What are some of your pet peeves?

8. If you're not married yet, describe your dream wedding. And if you are, describe what your wedding looked like.

I am tagging these amazing bloggers to answer my questions:






I know this was a very long post and I'm really sorry for that. Haha. Anyways, I hope you guys enjoy. And I'm definitely looking forward to your answers!

Have a happy Monday:D

Farmers' Market and Family Festival

It's that time of the year again! Last Wednesday, My family and I went to the Farmers' Market that was held at our local mall. They sell different things there such as fruits, food, clothing, handmade soaps, and many more. It's an event you totally wouldn't want to miss. TRUST ME!
This is the 10th year anniversary of the Farmers' Market! Yay!
No wonder it was so packed:DDD

This is the famous "Kettle Kooked PopKorn" booth. They sell the best kettle corn you will ever taste. Every time we come here, we always have to buy it. The line was extremely long. I wish I would've taken a picture for you guys to see:(

I just had to take a picture:D Maybe they deliver? Hmmm.

It was a very busy day, indeed! I saw a lot of my friends there that day:D

Mango-flavored Italian Ice! This was really good. My siblings and I got some the moment we got there. It was really cheap too. $3 for an 8 oz cup. We were enjoying its tasty goodness while roaming around the market.

My sister got the strawberry-flavored one. Doesn't that look so inviting? It makes me want to go back and get some. Too bad it's only held on Wednesdays.

Please excuse the photo quality! It was very sunny:D

Pony rides:D

I wanted to ride them too. But of course, it was only for kids. Look at that little girl. So cute!

Greek Food! I've never actually tried this. I think I'm going to next week.

The Funnel Cakes must have tasted really good. Look at all those people!

CREPES! This was the booth my sister first went to. She loves nutella crepes. (I think that guy caught me taking a picture! uh-oh. haha.)

They even have a band to entertain people.

And wall climbing. But...they're for kids too. How sad. I think children ages 4-13 are the only ones allowed.

A huge whale jumper! They really know how to entertain kids, huh?

And in less than 5 minutes, you can get a caricature of yourself, your kids, or even you and your boyfriend;D You can also hire them for a party you're going to have. How exciting!

The smell of the grilled Shish Kabobs were filling up the whole market. It smelled so good and it looked very delish.

They also sold HUGE strawberries. Really red. Sorry if it doesn't look like it in this picture. I'm still working on my editing skills. haha.

more fruits....

and loaf cakes for $5 each.

Orchids for sale.

and all kinds of flowers too. Don't they look so pretty!

My mom bought 2 large packs for $5 each. (my brother ate the other one while we were at the market. grrr.) And a small pack for $2.

a close-up just for you guys:D

Freshly roasted peanuts for only $2.

They were really crunchy.

We also bought watches. My sister got the blue one. And of course I got the pink one. They each cost $10.

The Farmers' Market is a place where every family goes. It's so much fun. There's lots of things to do and lots of booths to see:D For those of you who live in LA, you definitely have to come see it. I guarantee that it won't disappoint you. And for those who live outside the country, don't forget to come and check it out when you come visit LA. The season usually starts around the month of April and ends on October every year:D

Happy Saturday! And I wish you guys a very exciting 4th of July!!!

What do you guys think? Do you have something similar to this in your hometown?
