Clarisonic Haul

I went to Sephora and I finally bought myself a Clarisonic skin cleansing system. I purchased the Mia which is a travel friendly version of the original Clarisonic except the Mia has an international charger that works worldwide. I think the Mia is perfect for me since I'm going to the Philippines next month. I also chose the limited edition Mia which comes with a travel bag and an additional brush head.

I've only used my Clarisonic once and I must say that after I was finished using this, I felt really refreshed and it felt like I was just given a facial. To be honest, I almost felt like I wanted to go to sleep after I used this because it felt really relaxing.

I'm not sure if I'll be doing a product review for this. I think there are more than enough reviews on this product online but we'll see. All I really have to say that's bad about this product is its price. The Clarisonic Mia runs for about $145 and the regular for about $200. It's really pricey most especially for me but I've been wanting this product for quite some time now so it was a must-have on my list.

Questions for my readers:
1. Clarisonic users, how do you like this system so far? Any pros? cons?

2. For those who don't have one, would you consider purchasing one?

Updates + Philippines Trip + a Nose Job!?

Hey guys! I know I haven't posted in a really long time. I apologize. Basically I'm gonna say everything that's gonna be happening all in this post so you know exactly what's gonna happen in the next couple of months. But before I get to that I just want to apologize for not doing any looks in a really long time. I haven't played with makeup, or even touched my makeup for that matter. With all the looks that I've done you might think I do my makeup everyday but I really don't. I'm more of an eyeliner and blush kind of girl so when I do makeup looks, they're usually done for fun.

But with the winter season coming very quickly, I've decided to keep my looks natural. And I'm not speaking for just makeup. I'm keeping my hair its natural color, I'm growing out my bangs and I'm wearing minimal makeup. And to be honest, I'm happy with that.

It's possible that I might be in hiatus for a little bit longer because next month I'm going to the Philippines and I won't be back until mid January. It's also a possibility that I'll be going to Hong Kong. It's my second time going to the Philippines and I'm excited to go because I want to go shopping and search for makeup because I didn't have the opportunity to do that the last time I was there. Also, as you can tell by the title of my post, I am in fact getting a nose job there. Eeeeek! I'm kind of nervous! More so as a child my family would always crack jokes about how flat or how big my nose is. Mean right?! Haha just kidding. But this is supposedly a present from my parents. What's weird is that I wasn't even suggesting that I get a nose job. It was all my moms idea so I just said okay.

Anyway, I don't know how you guys feel about cosmetic surgery. I know some of you might believe that everyone should appreciate the gifts God gives them. That's true for the most part but it's not like I'm getting rid of my nose. I'm just making it better looking! So before I get any comments regarding your opinion about my getting rhinoplasty, take a deep breath before you say anything hostile, though I would fully accept constructive criticism.

I was also thinking about scheduling some of my posts so it doesn't seem like I've been in complete hiatus from now until the new year. I can maybe do a couple of looks and schedule them to post at different time intervals so it seems as if I'm updating my blog when I'm actually across the Pacific in a completely different timezone. =P

I almost forgot to mention that Victor is moving to San Diego in January as well. He'll be here when I get back from the Philippines so I'm really excited! You guys have no idea.... actually you guys probably do have an idea how happy I must feel since a number of you are probably avid readers of my blog since the beginning of when I first started doing blog posts. Anyway, any details regarding Victor and other stuff can be found on my personal blog. Until then, I'll see you guys soon I hope.
