Banana Republic Rings + Erika Peña Druzy Ring
What is a BB Cream and its use?
A BB Cream or Blemish Balm cream is a cream used first by dermatologists who use it for its healing characteristics and skin-regenerating properties on skin which has undergone laser surgery. It provides perfect coverage just like a foundation but without clogging pores or damaging the skin. Conceals all types of pigmentation, discoloration, acne and marks. Also it encourages skin regeneration to create and maintain youthful skin. Plus, it has protection against the sun.
The BB Cream is highly used in Asia, especially in South Korea, and if you haven't noticed most asian women have amazing younger looking skin. Now, why am I, a 20 year old, talking about this? Prevention is key. Even when you don't have wrinkles at such a young age, it's good to start caring about your skin for a long term deal. Start now and the consequences of sun and work appear much later.
On to the product at hand. The Garnier BB Cream is perfect, in my opinion, for people who are like me and live in a humid tropical island. Us humid climate dwellers have a constant battle with skin issues since we're constantly experiencing drastic climate changes. The Garnier BB Cream provides a light coverage that doesn't clog the pores and stays put the whole day without caking. It hasn't broken me out, on the contrary my skin is looking better. I truly recommend this if you don't like to use a heavy foundation, which is best for our climate.

I usually don't go into BP, but I was drawn to it yesterday for some reason. I was delighted to see that they have a nice selection of jewelry for a good price. Having worked with a jewelry designer myself, I'm more attuned to prices and paying it's worth. I tend to go for delicate unique rings with precious stones. So when I saw these babies I just had to have them. I'm going to be playing up using these together and apart and dammit I'll have fun doing just that!

I've finished my fashion internship at Erika Peña and I got my gift. Presenting the José María ring. This is the cocktail ring I was feverishly looking for and got. I swear, every time I went to work I'd stop and drool over it. Ah, it feels good on my hand.

I have no complaint on any of these except Rebel. The only thing that irks me with Rebel is that you have to build up the color so it looks more deep purple. My lipstick collection varies from drugstore to high-end ones, I see no problem with buying expensive ones. MAC makes amazing lipsticks if you choose wisely, I highly recommend them.
- Press Powder- I like my face fairly matte so I like to re-touch my t-zone area during an outing. Plus, it has a mirror.
- Bold Lipstick- I like keeping my make-up fairly soft so I can use a bright pop of color on my lips.
- Cell Phone- It goes without saying these days.
- iPod- Always have this with you, we never know when we might need a bit of an escape.
- Kabuki Brush- I dislike sponges to apply my powder.
- Wallet- I forgot to add mine. Oops.
Clutch- Office Max, Powder- Studio Fix Foundation N5, Lipstick- Ruby Woo
*Note: Who knew Office Max had envelope "folders" perfect for clutch usage!*
Rock Paper Vintage was doing a New Year's giveaway and I was so happy to win! The communication with them was very good and hands on. They were very attentive to what I like and gave me some picks. I chose these two bracelets that simulate druzy, and you guys know I love druzy. They are both so nice and statement pieces. I'm very happy with my pickings! Thank you very much, RVP.
