Dusk & Dawn

so what makes a good party for you? well here's the breakdown for me.. food? nah, even pizza or indomie instant noodles will do. music? free downloads on the iPod. goodie bags? hellowww its 2010! so then what? well, to me what matters most is the companion and attendance of your loved ones. food, music, drinks, etc are just the extras that you can buy with money. but friends and family? they're two priceless things not even Bill Gates can buy.

this is why i enjoyed my friday night at my pal's birthday dinner. its small, but packed with lots of smiles and laughters. and of course, nice food and cocktails "up-ed" the extras factors :) sad that i couldn't stay until the candle blowing session because i had another party afterwards.

3.1 Phillip Lim dress, Zara blazer, gifted necklace, Forever21 belt, peep toe Louboutin.

last week i got a sampler false eyelash package from Revlon. they sent me three boxes ! I tried out the natural one (which had 2 pairs in one box) and i totally fell in love the second they got glued to my lids. Actually they suit my eye shape better than the Shu Uemura ones I used back then. The self-adhesive was also strong enough so I didnt need to put extra glue.

i wish i could have these lashes permanently planted..

and there's the comparison between my short natural ones with the falsies..

here's some pics from the party.. not much though..

I like the chicness of your outfit, especially the simplicity of the Phillip Lim dress (I'm sure you can do a lot with it). I'm so bad at putting my eyelashes on, but I addicted to the effect they can create; I love the Revlon pairs on you.

janettaylor said...

Love the Hermes clutch!

Walk The Sand said...

Louboutin love! And the clutch is perfect...
I've never used the Revlon lashes before...but these look a really good shape so might seek them out.

I use a Canon EOS 500D.. I think it's a pretty basic model... good for a newbie like me... and I just use the lens it came with. I never use the flash though so it picks up the light more dusky from inside my flat.

Hope you have a great week

I love indomie! It used to be called indomee mee goreng before changing its name to ibumie in my hometown. It's also the staple instant noodles for many Asians residing in the west.

Did I just rattle on so much about indomie? Padon me, I digress. I'd wanted to say that the Louboutin pair is to die for and oh... I'm famished just looking at your blog.

Anna-Lena said...

hello beauty...first i have to say that i really love your new blog-layout..looks fantastic...so lovely..and your outfit as well...great!

misscindee said...

aw, no worries babe. I just one of things that i believe in... that the only limits you have are the ones you put on yourself. i love the energy you bring, ever since we started chatting over the net and i believe you have a lot of potential to be anything and so anything you want to do.

Love how natural those falsies look. I love being a girl! We can always have so much fun with clothes, makeup and everything in between. Although at times there are things I hate about being a girl.
