226 & 214 Obtained!

So, I've been hearing a lot of good things about these 2 brushes and desperately wanted them. - the MAC #214 and #226. Geeeez oh geez, I found them so difficult to look for!

I had called almost all the MAC stores and Macy-Mac counters in my area and found no luck until I came across the last one, and OMG, I thought this store would be one of the first to run out! I didn't believe the lady when I called so I made sure and asked her more than once. After confirming and putting them on hold, and though it was almost closing time, I zoomed there knowing they could run out in any second. *sigh* So yeah, that's how excited my adrenalines get. I haven't tried them yet, but will do soon.

A Hearty Weekend

Hello, ladies! I know this is overdue, but sorry, I've been sick since we came back. I am going to make this quick and try to squish everything in. Hope all of yal had a happy Valentine's day as well!

We actually spent our Valentine/long weekend in the O.C./L.A. area with the hubby's sister and her family.

I forgot to bring my camera's memory card hence, I wasn't able to take pictures. *wonk! wonk! wonk!* But, I took a few pictures with my phone.

How did we spend Valentine Weekend?

1) On Valentine's day - Saturday, we finally got to visit Volks USA in L.A. and oh my, the dolls were amazingly beautiful!!! I wanted a doll, but i was very very hesitant since everything was sooo PRICY! The hubby told me I can pick one out... but I told him I should think about it atleast overnight! I am not a compulsive buyer (like him), unless I know I really really want or need it! lol

2) We ate at Koji's at the Block for dinner... we had shabu-shabu.. one of our favorites! We also had vegtable tempura and their Crunchy roll.

3) Mark bought me a Krispy Kreme donut... cute and sugary!

4) The following day - Sunday, we had lunch at MEDIEVAL TIMES... the show was just awesome and we got to eat lunch with our bare hands. It was an experience! I nearly lost my voice by cheering for our blue knight, who by the way LOST!!! It's okay... overall, we enjoyed!

5) After the show, guess what? We made our way back to Volks, and YES, I got a Super Dollfie doll!

6) On Monday, we headed back home despite the heavy rain, and I watched some old Filipino movies all day long. It was quite relaxing... I just love rainy days!

7) Tuesday, the hubby came home and I got extra Valentine gifts! He was supposed to give this on V-day however, there was a change in plans so he had his co-worker hold 'em until we got back. He surprised me again! Wow... he's beginning to get good at it. haha! I just loveee the balloons!

And that's basically it.... FUN TIMES!

MAC-Hello Kitty Haul

Guess what?! The MAC-HELLOKITTY COLLECTION in my area apparently came out 2 days before the launching date (Feb. 12). I accidently found out by calling my MAC store to ask about some other stuff. Sheeeeesh! I wish they would have let their customers know ahead of time, ya know? So, so ridiculus! Anywho, let me stop all the complainin' since I was able to get the stuff I wanted earlier today. : P

I think I got carried away, but why does my haul seem so little? haha. Well, gladly, I was able to stay within our over-talked budget for this thang. Now, with all this in hand, I now sit here and question myself, was this all really worth it? hahaha! I can convince myself otherwise, but what the heck, people who really know me KNOW I LOVE MAC and HELLO KITTY! In fact, I just got back from another one of our MAC stores just now and pre-ordered the high-end of the MAC-HELLO KITTY collection. I was surprised... it only has 3 things, (beauty powder ($90) and 2 lip glosses ($28/ech). I think it's a good thing that there's only a few things, though.

Ok... well, I leave you ladies with pictures. Oh, and there you'll see, Hailey - one of my dolls that come from my dolly collection. She's the Hello Kitty version... cute, eh? I thought it'd be fun for her to model with this MAC-Hello Kitty Line. : )

***If yal like, you can view more of my dolly pictures at

So yeah, if I'm not doing/buying makeup, then I'm busy with my doll photography :)

Before I go, I'd like to say thank you to the hubby for buying me this collection as my Valentine's gift. : ) Yipppeee!

Missing Buttons...

On January 23, 2009 - BUTTONS, our cat was missing. Since then, he has not come home and we are very, very sad. He is actually Sherilyn's - my sister-in-law's cat, who she left here for us to take care of since pets are not allowed in her apartment.

I have ALWAYS been scared of cats, and BUTTONS (along with Ninji and Tom) are the REASONS why I have come to like CATS nowadays, BUT I still believe I'm more of a dog/puppy lover. However, out of all the cats my husband and his family has owned, I THINK BUTTONS IS THE MOST CUTEST, CLEANEST AND FRIENDLY-EST amongst them all. It took some time for me to even believe he was a MALE CAT, because he seemed tooo pretty all the time.


But yeah, I think Sherilyn and I are still in denial and believe he will pop out of nowhere sometime soon. If he's out there... we hope he is safe and pray he'll find his way home.


Thanks, Buttons... for making me feel comfortable around cats... you will always be thought of and have a special place in my heart.
