Bloominous - DIY Flowers Made Easy

Floral arrangements are a must at weddings. And with all the planning and designing, brides almost never find time to prepare for this, which is basically something I consider that would make or break the wedding. Ive never been good when it comes to floral arrangements, that's something I leave to the professionals. But sometimes they just cant deliver what you really want. And I have never been so glad in my life to come across what I consider as an event lifesaver- Bloominous.

Bloominous is an online shop that caters to all your wedding flower arrangement needs. All these and more, you can do at the comforts of your own home. The idea is actually very simple, all you have to do is choose which flowers you want and they will take care of the rest. The kit will be delivered to you, and everything you need to make that perfect bouquet is right at your doorstep in no time,

What makes it even more fun is that they have five different collections that you can choose from. So no matter what the theme of the event is, you'll be sure to find the perfect floral arrangement! Here are the different themes that you can choose from.

Party Pop Collection

This just screams "pink" in all direction! I really like this one because its so sweet and girly. The colors of the flowers stands out, giving the atmosphere that sweet feel.

Vintage Cottage Collection

This collection is classy at best. Its also french inspired, which makes the setting more romantic. The colors are simple but elegant, making it perfect for weddings.

Bohemian Desert Collection

For any fun events, this theme would be so perfect. The different colored flowers complements the whole setting, giving the place a playful and colorful atmosphere. The pop of colors on the florals are very unique and pretty too.

Country Charm Collection

I love sunflowers! And this collection will not disappoint. Ive always been fond of country living, and the bright yellow colors of the flowers displays that country feel.

Eco Chic Collection

Simplicity is indeed beauty. I like how subtle the decoration is, but still exudes classiness and elegance. This would be perfect if you are looking for floral arrangements that aren't overboard with decorations.

Lovely isnt it? Bloominous takes into consideration their clients, and their passion for this craft is something that you will see in their products. Here are some reasons as to why they are on top of their crafts:
  • When they say easy DIY, they really meant it.  The set comes with cut to order, dethorned and trimmed flowers, all prepped and ready for use.
  • All kits bought comes with easy to follow photo instructions and accessories, which makes assembling easier and faster. They also provide flower care products to make the arrangement last longer.
  • They have a team of professionals working to provide customers with only the best.
Plus, the pricing on each set is truly affordable. This gives you at elast 30%-50% discount compared to floral shops. Not to mention, having fun while making these DIY. Its a win-win situation.

Review: Sophie Lipstick in Ice Pink (SLPK01)

The weather's pretty gloomy these past few weeks. I have a feeling another typhoon is coming :3 So today I decided to do a review of one of my lip products, the Sophie Lipstick in Ice Pink. Ive had this item for a year or two I guess, so now I can properly give it a review :)

The packaging is very cute and simple. Its a black tube with floral prints and the company logo printed in pink! Yay.

I really loved the floral designs on the tube. Pink and black is really a very good color combination on beauty products because I feel like they entice more people to buy them because of cuteness overload.

I bought this lipstick at a very affordable price, more or less $2. I think there are 3 or 4 more shades in this line, and I got this shade which is called Ice Pink and another one called Cotton Peach.

Also printed on the tube is the expiry date of the product which is on 2015. I think its also important that expiry dates be printed on any beauty products because we would know when to throw away products that are no longer suitable for use. I always check for labels and ingredients of products I use too.

The color name really suits this lipstick because its a pretty Ice Pink in shade. I think this color became a trend in the last 2 years? I remember seeing this lipstick color being worn all over beauty bloglandia and I was dying to try it also. Perhaps that was one of the reasons why I got this haha. Here are some photos of the lipstick.

This lipstick has a matte finish, so if you wanted something that is not sticky like lipglosses, then you should give this a try. But the downside of it is that I find it a little hard to apply because of its consistency. So it would help if you apply lip balm on your lips first for the lipstick to glide on smoothly.

But the good thing is that this lipstick surprisingly lasts longer. I guess we all have to thank its matte consistency as being the reason why it does not come of easily, even when I was eating and drinking.

And now here is a photo comparison of the lipstick when worn. Its really a vibrant pink, but when light shines on it (like camera flash) it somewhat turns into a purplish pink. Or something purple-ish. Still, its a pretty color I must say.

And lastly, here is a #shamelessselfie, as what its called on instagram. Hehe :P Overall, I dont think this color is a good match for me for daily use. Although I would use it for parties or night out or special occasion, just not for daily use because I find it too flashy for my liking.

+ affordable
+ avalable locally
+ matte finish
+ lasts longer
+ nice color
+ durable
+ nice packaging

- a little difficult to apply

And thats it! Hopefully I will be posting a review of the other Sophie Lipstick that I own next. I now have time to blog and take photos so I hope I can keep up with daily posting. I kinda went MIA for a year and I want to be back on track with posting. Happy reading! :)

50 Shades of Black and Gray (OOTD)

Today we went to the Church. And I made the mistake of washing all my shoes (aka vans, converse and keds) yesterday, so today I was faced with the problem of what to wear because I dont have any sneakers to use. So I went out of my usual T-Shirt-Skinny Jeans-Sneakers combo and wore something I dont usually wear because its not really my style (but I do love dressing up sometimes).

Coordinates: Gray Long Sleeves Top (thrifted), Black Skorts (mall), Black Oxford (mall), Small Black Chain Messenger Bag (gift)

This outfit is too girly for me, and I dont ear cutesy stuffs daily because I feel like it takes too much time to prepare the outfits to wear and accessories to match and etcetera. But I will plead guilty of browsing outfits online. Haha. I love looking at fashion posts especially on Tumblr, Instagram and WeHeartIt.

Ive had this gray top for years already and surprisingly it still fits me. I got it at a thrift shop for $1. I really liked the ribbon style collar on this top. The black skort was a sale item, only $2 yay! Ive always wanted a skort because it looks really pretty. Sadly I dont think I have the height to wear such outfits lol.

Ze camera does not do justice on my outfit :( I also used this chain body bag that my aunt from Australia gave me. Its quite small, and can only fit a few necessities like mobile phones, money, cards and keys.

Here's a closeup shot of the bag. Ribbons! I love bows and this one is so cute. Too bad its just a small bag though.

Ribbon detail on the bag :3

And here is one on my shoes. Haha. Actually these were color gray, but I hand painted it black because I feel like black is a prettier color, plus it would be easier to match it with any outfits.

The weather was pretty warm earlier, but as Im typing this post as of now its raining hard. The weather is really so bipolar these months. One of the reasons why Im too lazy to dress up because I dont know what weather we will have in the next few hours haha.

Review: IN2IT Lasting Lipstick in Carnelian (LA 04)

Hi :) I have finally found time to blog today, and Im going to do a product review of an item which I bought a month or two ago. I hope you find this review hopeful especially if you come across this product brand in the near future.

So today's product review is about IN2IT Long Lasting Lipstick. I have seen this brand in Watsons a few times already but havent got the chance to buy anything yet, except for one or two items. Its actually pretty cheap in normal beauty product standards, but being a cheapo I still find it a little expensive haha. I think this is an Asian product if my memory serves me right.

One thing I like about the brand is that it has really cute packaging for its products. Like this lipstick for example, the outside packaging is really very simple, with a delicate and cutesy drawing and what seems to be little rhinestones of some sort. Its really really pretty!

The shade I got is called Carnelian, which is actually kind of pink/nude-ish in shade. Im not really good at describing colors, but according to the sales girl this is a brownish shade with pink undertones? Im not sure if I got it right, but oh well, its still a pretty color suitable for daily wear.

I have a Sophie Lipstick and it looks like this one, but its cheaper. I might review it here and compare the colors to see if its indeed a dupe of some sort.

excuse my chipped nails lol

I tried it on my lower lips for comparison to see the difference. As you can see, it comes off as a pinkish color but dont be fooled its actually brownish haha. And yeah, I have darker lips lol.

And after I applied the lipstick on my lips, here is the outcome. I actually like it, knowing that I am not a fan of this kinds of colors. But its actually nice and wearable. This would definitely be perfect for daily use, be it in school or work.

What do you think? I did like the lipstick after all, specially since its quite easy to apply as it slides on easily. Also its not sticky like most lipstick, so I had no problem wearing it the whole time. It lasted the whole day on me too, with occasional eating/drinking.

Would I repurchase? I dont think so. I have seen cheaper lipstick brands which has more or less the same color and is quite good too, so I might just stick on those brands. But if you want to try a new brand, then you should check out IN2IT Cosmetics and you wont regret it.

And to end this review, here's a selfie from me. Messy hair, dont care *u* haha. Till next blog post :) Thanks for reading and hope you learned something from meh :)
