I'm giving another thing to celebrate aside from the end of Ramadan this Tuesday morning! So don't miss reading this post!
When it comes to brows, consider me front and center when a product comes out. Consider me hyperventilating once I learn how affordable it is and that it works beautifully without so much of an effor!
One of my favorite Japanese beauty brands, K-Palette, sent over their new products and it's all about brows!! Yes, I'm here to whet your appetite because I don't think this is in stores yet... but if they are, I'm telling you better get your lazy bums and grab yourself one of these before they ran out because they are amaze-balls!
What am I talking about? It's the new K-Palette Real Lasting Eyebrow Mascara!
To know more, read on!! It's the holiday, unwind with me. :)

Now more than ever am I aware of the words I speak... Being a mom changed so much in me. I became aware of what I needed to be for my daughter and how I plan on raising her.
Watching this video brought up a well of emotions that I wasn't ready for. I cried while I was watching this... I saw my child in the future being singled out for being a girl, acting a certain way just because it was expected of her as a girl. I thought how limiting those words ("like a girl") will be for her. I couldn't stand it.
Unfortunately here in our country, men mostly have the upperhand. Now, don't get me wrong. I love it when a man stands up for his family and take care of them. But on the downside, it very much puts us women in a certain box that is quite hard to get out from. From the clothes we wear, the food we eat, how we act, the course in college we take along with the career that we choose for ourselves.
Add to that the belief that are ingrated in most of us that being feminine equates to being lame, weak, and under-performing... Women from all over the world, for centuries have been breaking records, becoming successful and well-known for their individuality, for taking a leap out of that box and conquering this kind of discrimination. They've been proving that being a woman doesn't have to be limiting. That we can be who we want to be.
And that's what I want for my daughter, Claud. I want her to feel limitless! And if I have a son, I don't want him to feel bad when somebody tells him he's "like a girl". I want him to have respect for women's abilities. I want them to know that being a girl meant strength to nurture, deep compassion, and an unwavering will.
Let's make a vow, shall we? That from now on we will use the term "like a girl" in a more positive way. That same goes for "like a gay." Just so we're clear. :)
P.S. This is not a sponsored post or am I advertising the brand who did this video. I just like their message so I'm sharing it with all of you. :)

It's been awhile since I really dolled up.
Since I had baby Claud, I barely had time to put on makeup on. Taking care of her is all I wanted to do from the moment she opens her eyes in the morning to the minute she closes them at night. I'm a lucky mom though because my baby is easily content. That's why I allow myself an hour or two sometimes to attend events here and there and to write here on my blog.
And when I received the invite to Pond's Beautiful Story event, I took this chance to try to glam myself up. Well just a little bit. So in between breastfeeding and rocking baby Claud to sleep, I started to spruce up. I missed this! Don't get me wrong, I love motherhood but it really does take so much of my time. So getting to play with my makeup again was such a sweet breather. Thank God, our baby Claud wasn't so fussy.
So here's my very first Face of the Day as a Mom! :)
