Feathered Earrings from All Buttoned Up!

Hey everyone! In my earlier post, I mentioned that Bianca of All Buttoned Up gave me feathered earrings as a freebie from my last purchase. I love everything from their shop! Not only do their stuff look pretty, they are also really affordable. For the price, the quality is really good and I love it! Here are the four feathered earrings I received.. This how they look like:

I am loving everything!

This one is called "Night Sky" and this is my favorite. The color is really gorgeous. I would definitely make an eye makeup tutorial inspired for this one! :)

This is how it looks like when worn:
I love how it blends with my hair. Many thought I colored parts of my hair green! :)

This one's called "Zulu White". I love how simple this looks. It's very flexible, I can match this with most of my outfits :) Unfortunately, I don't have any picture of me wearing this earring.

 This one is a customized "Zulu White" with feathers from the "Mardu" style. I like the "native" feel to it :)

This is "Fickle" in Purple. I haven't tried this one yet but I'll also try to make a tutorial inspired by this one :)

That is all guys! If you are interested in buying, you may visit All Buttoned Up on Facebook. They have a lot of feathered earrings for sale. You can also customize your feathered earrings just the way you like it! Bianca is really kind and approachable so you can just message her and inquire :) I'm sure you'll find something from her shop that you'll like :)

Thank you so much for dropping by! Tell me what you think! :)

My Healed Tattoo and Belly Rings from All Buttoned Up

Hey everyone! I'm very excited to share my recent purchase from All Buttoned Up. Although I purchased 1 makeup from the shop, this post is not makeup related. This post is going to focus on the Belly Rings that I got from them. As you guys know, I love tattoos, so I guess it's no longer a surprise for you to know that I also have body piercings. I only have a few: 2 on my left ear, 1 on my right ear and another one on my navel. I really like navel piercings.. Even before I started having tattoos, I really liked seeing belly piercings and thought about having one as early as 14... I finally did after 3 years... right after highschool! Haha. I never had regrets :)

I found out about All Buttoned Up through Janah of maricarljanah. She raved about how awesome and affordable their feathered earrings were.. true indeed! And not only do they sell feathered earrings, they also sell other accessories and stuff like Nyx products that are really affordable as well. I was surprised to see that they alsoo sell belly rings! It was very timely because 2 days before that, I actually lost my mine and needed to get another one asap.

Almost all the belly rings they sell do not exceed Php100. They usually cost Php80-100. I got 3 belly rings and Bianca (the owner) was kind enough to give me discounts and freebies! The silver one with the clear crystal was a freebie from her :) 

She also sent me feathered earrings as a freebie! I will be posting a separate blog post on that.

I want to show you how the belly rings look like when worn. This blog post is actually really late because I waited for the perfect time to shoot these babies. These photos were taken at my lola's resort in Tagaytay when we went there for her despedida party. This was the perfect timing. 

This is the first belly ring that really caught my eye. It's a simple white plastic ball. I really like how simple and unique it looks. This is my boyfriend's favorite among all the belly rings that I got.

This is how it looks like when worn:

So pretty right??

The second is a silver one with red studs. I absolutely love the color!

How it looks like when worn:
I forgot to tighten this so it looks a little loose.

This is probably my favorite! It's black and has this intricate rose design. I love it!! Matches my tattoo :)

How it looks like when worn:

This was the freebie Bianca sent me. This actually looks the same as the one I lost! It came back! Lucky me! Lol! Thank you, Bianca! I really like it! :)

I love them all! If I can just wear them all at the same time! Haha! :) 

If you are interested you can visit All Buttoned Up's Facebook page here. I'm pretty sure you'll find something that will fancy you! From accessories to dresses, to even makeup! Enjoy ladies! I hope you like this post! Thanks for dropping by! :) 

Comment what you think! Do you also have piercings? Please share! I would love to know :)

Thank you! -dianejanica

Should I dye my hair black?

Hey everyone! Lately, I've been a bit confused on whether or not I should dye my hair black or continue sporting my "Thai Tamarind" hair color. I've been wearing it for almost 4 years now, constantly re-applying every 5 months whenever my roots grow. I buy 2 boxes of Kolours Hair Color and have it applied in our nearby salon. I kind of grew tired maintaining it and I wanted some change. I didn't want to cut my hair short nor give myself a fringe so a few weeks ago, I bought 2 boxes of hair color (again from Kolours) and bought the shade "Medium Brown".

The thing is.. if I dyed my hair dark, it would be hard for me to dye it again when I want to switch to lighter shades if ever I get bored with dark hair. I heard that you need to bleach your hair first to wash away the dark color to be able to dye it in lighter shades again…. but that would mean damaging your hair right? Any suggestions, ladies?

In the meantime, here's an FOTD showing my current hair color in direct sunlight. You be the judge.

What do you think?? Your suggestions would be greatly appreciated! :) Thanks for dropping by!

My Failed Makeup Tutorial Attempt!

My camera's SD card broke for some reason that's why it has been 2 months since my last tutorial on YouTube. I finally bought my camera a new 16G card last week. I missed making tutorials so much! So 2 nights ago, I decided to do a Pin-up Doll Makeup Tutorial. After I finished the whole look, I realized that I didn't even press the record button :/ This was me...

..and I almost did this to my camera..

Just so my effort and makeup won't be put to waste, I took vain shots instead :)) Forgive me!!!

 Okayy enough. I won't waste your precious time anymore :)) I hope you liked my supposed to be Pin-up look though! Good evening everyone! :)

My healed tattoo!!

Aigoo Shoppe Lenses: GEO Hurricane Brown + Quick FOTD

Hey ladies! Today I am going to make a review on the new lenses that I received from Aigoo Shoppe. It's the HC-104 GEO Hurricane in Brown! I am so excited because this is probably my most favorite among all the other lenses that I have :) I got these lenses about 2 weeks ago but I haven't gotten the chance to try it out until this morning when I went to school. So now, I am finally ready to give it a review :)

The package that was sent to me came in with a super cute piggy lens case! Soo cute it makes me want to bring it with me everyday. Haha. It included a rubberized tong for picking up lenses. I like the fact that it's pink and has a container that you can bring around with you or even tie it somewhere to make it a keychain. Lol.

So the GEO lenses that I got was the (HC-104) Hurricane Brown and this is how it looks like:

It has this slightly dark outer ring and a pretty brown shade that fades gradually. As you can see, it also has this really unique swirly pattern that goes from the outer ring. The pattern doesn't look too overwhelming, in fact you can't really see them when worn. I think the swirly pattern blended everything out, making the lenses look really natural when worn. I super love it. I think these are one of the most lovely lenses I have ever worn. Diameter is 14.0mm.

These are how the lenses look like when worn:

 Looks so natural right? The color blends effortlessly with my dark brown iris.
 Now for the verdict:

Color and Design:
The design is very unique and interesting plus the color blends really well with my iris. It's perfect.

I wore it to school for 5 hours straight. I experienced a bit of discomfort when my eyes started to dry out after a few hours, but it immediately went away after I dropped some lens lubricant on each eye.

14.0mm is the perfect diameter for my eyes. I don't think a bigger one would suit my eyes.


I absolutely love it. I recommend this to all especially to those who are in the search for natural looking circle lenses.

Here are some more photos of me wearing the Geo Hurricane Brown Lenses and a quick FOTD:

I kept everything simple since I was just heading out to school. I evened out my skin tone, did my brows as usual, contoured my face, winged my eye, highlighted my tearducts and added a bit of color to my lips. That's actually my everyday face routine. Haha. Nothing new except for my new lenses! I.L.O.V.E.I.T.
