Fabulously hats!

I am a crazy hat's gal! I think it's so fabulous when you wear it with the right outfit. Or find hat that fits you perfectly. One of my favorite people who wears hat all the time is the fabulous Rachel Zoe..

and of course, Britney Spears...

What's their secret? They look so perfect!
The secret is to choose the right hat and wear it correctly and with confidence
  • Choose a hat that fits your face and complements your skin color. Before buying a hat, make sure you have tried it on and have ask a friends opinion
  • Wear the correct size. I hated it when my hats fall down my face every time I tilted my head, or give me  headache because its too tight. 
  • Tilt your hat. Oh i love this one. If my hat doesn't look right, I try it in a different angle. You'll be amaze how look you good when you found the perfect angle.
  • Change your hairstyle when wearing different hat. Some hats look good with pigtail, or with a curly hair or with the up do bun.
  • Choose a hat that matches the style of your outfit than the color. Go for a hat that suits your skintone
  • Choose your accessories wisely. If your wearing a large hat don’t wear big earrings.

    Experiment and have fun with it !

    I did!

    Have a fabulous day!

Purple cherry blossom

Note: This look was inspired by MP delicate cherry blossom tutorial.(Using local products!!)

Photos by

 Cherry blossom also known as "sakura" in Japanese is a beautiful and delicate flower that can also be seen in Korea and China. The cherry blossom is a very delicate flower that typically blossom in late winter to early spring. It is often a very short lived time in which it blooms and then it quickly fall from the tree and lays on the ground. In Japanese Cherry blossom represent life in that life is something of great beauty yet it is very quick and passing. 

In Chinese  cherry blossom is a flower that represent feminine power and beauty. They believe that the blossom is an example of extreme beauty. It is on the one hand very beautiful and even very delicate but yet it holds extreme power at the same time.

 When spring in Korea,  cherry blossoms are blooming. I had heard that the blossoms in the spring are one of the most beautiful things you can see in Seoul. The blossoms are elusive and sneaky, and will bloom and wither within the span of a week

Well, Cherry blossom for me is delicate and beautiful and you have to cherish it because It could disappear for a minute.

This look was inspired by a purple Cherry blossom, so simple yet sweet and delicate....

Here's the look

Let's Start

Music Playlist at

Naked eyes

Use a white eyeliner and apply it to the inner corners of the eyes. 
This will help the colors to look brighter, lighter and vibrant.
I used the f21 white eyeliner/shadow in pearl.

Then take a purple cream eyeshadow and apply it all over the lids. 
This will make the color more intense and make the shadow stay longer.

I used the Everbilena Advance cream eyeshadow in Alejandra.

Next, take a lavender eyeshadow and apply it all over the lids. This will help warm up the eyes. Make it appear soft, like the petals of a flower.

I used the avon simply pretty blend able eyeshadow duo in princes

Now take you favorite gold eyeshadow and dab it all over the lid.
This will add balance to the colors that we used.
Help you create that soft, delicate look.

I used the Ellana Mineral eyeshadow  in divine.

Take a deep purple eyeshadow and apply it into the outer V .
This will create depth into your eyes

I used Nichido  Eyeshadow  powder.

And slightly dust the Ellana gold eyeshadow all over the eyes.

Now, take that deep purple again and apply it to your lower and upper lash line.

Used this as an eyeliner because black eyeliner is too intense 
for the delicate look of the cherry blossom

Now take a white eyeliner and apply it to your water line to open up the eyes.

Full lashes is too intense so I cut the lashes into half 
and apply it at the corners of my eyes.
Or you can kip this part and just curl your lashes 
and add mascara.


Your eyes should look soft and mysterious

 Sweet and sultry like a flowers

And delicate like the beautiful Cherry Blossom.

Have a fabulous day...

Review: Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals B.B. Cream

I have been so interested with Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals B.B. Cream and finally got my hand on it and had the courage to try it on my face. I love it when I heard that It has a good coverage, but I am actually more interested to the  promise to even out skin tone.

  • Brightens skin: visible whitening effect
  • Covers imperfections: reduces the appearance of pores, skin redness disappears

 What Leah likes:
  • Inexpensive for only P299.00 per 18ml
  • Has light to medium coverage which I prefer
  • Has SPF
  • No scent
  • Easy to apply
  •  Whitened and evened out the color of some dark spots on my face
  • Gives a slight "Brightening" effect.
 What Leah doesn't like:
  • Lacks the range of shades we all want.
  • Only one size available
  • Will create "grayish cast" on photos if applied too much!
I love  this BB cream because its very  inexpensive and works well like those expensive brands.I just hope they add more shades and bigger packages.I'm so love this product and I use it almost everyday!

Will I repurchase?
                    Yep yep! I used this everyday

                    For people with normal to oily skin!

How to be fat and fabulous!

Being a plus size is hard in the world were skinny bodies rules. Even the word "fat" feels like  a knife killing your self esteem. In my experience being called fat is painful as being called ugly, bitch, dumb. It is something that you didn't want to be. But as the time goes by, I have learned to accept my body as the whole world started to accept the "fat" word. But honestly, "fat" word sometimes can still make me feel uncomfortable so I often used the word voluptuous, plus size or fiercely real women:)

True Beauty Starts from within. Nothing in this world can make you feel beautiful but your own thoughts and self esteem. You are what you are and you must love it! Whatever makes you feel good and beautiful inside will come through on the outside. 


Never, ever loose your self-esteem and believe that you are beautiful now.  But you don't have to be like those people who became "too defensive and tough" if you know what I mean. Healthy self-esteem is the key.It only means that you're confident in your positive qualities overall, but recognize your flaw as well.

Step 2

Wear clothes that fit your well. Wearing clothes that is too small will only highlight your flab and will only make you feel uncomfortable. Wearing clothes that is too big will only make you look bigger and feel older. Its not about the size, its about the shape, balance and proper proportion. I love to wear clothes that the length is above the knee to show my legs or clothes that has deeper neckline to draw attention to my chest instead of my stomach. You just need to find clothes that fits your well and make you feel comfortable and confident.


Every girl needs to be feel like a princess, even for just a day. So don't forget to pamper your self. Get your hair done, your nails done and have a massage once in a while. Buy new clothes or make-up( which I often do). You can do this at home if salon is too expensive for you. I often asked my  hubby for a massage and I feel good and relax afterwards. Pampering yourself can make you feel better and as a result, look more beautiful.

Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.
