My New LoVe



Here is my new love! My new way of making handmade jewelry. Giving my client a more personalized item. Definitely take sometime to perfect each one, I remember stamping on a scratch metal sheet at night in my craft room while hubby and son were asleep in the next bedroom. Trying not to make too much noise but I was determine to perfect each stamp that night. So the next morning I can finally do the stamping on my precious metals. ;)

My Very First Craft Fair

I am so happy that my very first craft fair was successful. After a week of hardwork preparing and rushing everything my booth turned out nice. I wasn't expecting people's reaction regarding my work and my booth. With the help of my hubby my vision came alive...lol.. This was exactly how I visioned it to look like.It was a very hot day but I know my customers enjoyed browsing inside my booth with the help of my light shade, it allowed breeze in and still block whatever is goin on outside so they can concentrate shopping.


I wanted to give my customers a boutique-ish shopping experience so I placed my two tables on both side =) I am not one to give advice regarding craft fair but I suggest before going to one, you should do a little research and find out what works for you best as far as the set up.


I want to thank everyone who supported My Couture Jewelry on this event..Mahalo ♥

Earth Hour



Last night me and my son celebrated the "Earth Hour" all lights were off at exactly 8:30 pm in our house to participate in the global earth hour. My husband had to brush his teeth in the bathroom with just a candle. My son just loved it! He gets to hold the light for a little bit as I snap a picture for souvenir. My husband went to sleep right away so it was just me and my son giggling and laughing with just a candle lit up in our room. I thought him little something about the earth and our galaxy. I know he's a little too young but he loved the info and now he is aware of what is earth atleast (lol).I'm happy that my family were able to help a little bit. I think I just had fun playing with my son. I missed him after being gone for 4 days and the earth hour is the perfect timing to make it a little special. ♥

Which Eyelash Do You Prefer?


Want tips on how to have beautiful long eyelashes???


Nowadays it is not impossible to get what you want when it comes to beauty. It's just a matter of choice which one suits you best. Talking about eyelashes you can either choose a nice mascara that will make that magic to you, go to the salon to have an eyelash extension done or a fake eyelashes to finish your look.



As for me I use both mascara and fake eyelashes, it just depends of my mood which one I feel like using. There are some occasion that I used them both at the same time. To get the a good long eyelash using mascara I use the one that has a primer, just be careful in choosing a brand because some of it just gives you a clumpy eyelashes. I personally use L'Oreal brand or if I am really lazy enough Maybeline Stilletto Red works for me. I think the red one is waterproof.



Now for the fake eyelashes I don't use those expensive brands. Many times I just buy my eyelashes at this asian store for .99 cents and when I tell people that, they think it's from MAC. I think the real key is find one that suits your style and the size of your eyes. The reason is there are eyelash that is just too long and I'm sure you've seen some bizzare looking ones. I try to look for the most natural looking and if I really can't find the right length for me I settle for the right style and I just cut the ends so that I don't have extras hanging off the side of my eyes. When I say size I am referring to the length of your eyes not the eyelash. Hope you guys know what I mean ^_~...By the way the brand I use is "cherry" those are the cheap ones that you can find that has same quality as the expensive ones.



Ok here is the questions I know plenty people ask me. How do you get it on? and Does it last all day without falling off? I say..Oh yes! The real secret is having a good adhesive or glue. When I started using eyelashes that was my biggest frustration too. I just kept trying products till I found one that works really good. I use a dark tone glue DUO brand for my eyelash adhesive. I promise mines last from day to night! One more thing for more natural look I also use those individual eyelash. This is the occasion when I use the mascara then after I put those single eyelashes in between my real ones. It takes sometime to learn on how to put it on but trust me once you learn you'll be proud of yourself. I won't lie it just takes some time.



As for the eyelash extension, I've also tried it I would say I liked it the first week but when it started falling off I thought it was so awful. As it fall off my real eyelash falls off too. That was scary for me and I didn't like it when the extension was poking my eyes. One day I went to the mall and I saw this girl who was working in my favorite shop and I thought " I wish I could wear those fake eyelashes instead of what I have" My point is atleast with putting on the eyelashes yourself you are more in control. Again it's all about your personal prefference.

Baby Scent

Call me weird but I love love the scent of my 3 year old son! Maybe it's a mommy thing, lately it dawned on me that he still really smell like an infant baby to me. I realize also that he is really growing fast I can see the development everyday. He is getting smarter and everyday he is getting good in constructing his sentences. Sometimes I think he talks like he is a teenager.

As for now I will take it day by day and enjoy him while he is still small. The laughter we share together is very priceless. Being a mommy is the most wonderful career in the world. No it's not easy but it is rewarding when you get the love from your little one. ♥♥♥

Everyday I Feel Blessed

I can't express how thankful I am to have a great family and blessings just keep coming to us. Sometimes I wonder what I have done to deserve or to have something like this. I am lucky to have such a supportive husband that sticked with me through ups and down and lucky to have my 3 years old boy named Denzin. Sometimes I still can't believe that I have a son and someone always calls me "mama". The other night I still wasn't feeling ok, hubby was already sleepin I sat on the bed coughing and I heard this little sound saying..."Mama are you Ok? I turned and Denzin was sitting up checking to see if I am ok. I was like "awww mama is ok don't worry. It's so nice to hear that little voice, he was so cute asking me that question. He doesn't really say those words infact that was the first time I heard him say it. I been home for about a week now from calling in sick at work coz I am not feeling well. Everyday I can see Denzin being excited coz of me being home. I am taking them on my next trip, hopefully they can get on the flight. My mom will be happy to see them both again....Can't wait ♥

Back to My Blog

Ok, I'm back to blogging now. It's been a while too many things happened since then, just happy now that it's back to normal and I can do whatever I want during my free time. Yes I finally have freetime! No more crazy reviewing on any notes from my job training and besides my son is getting big so he doesn't need much attention compare to before. Oh, I take that back he still need much attention..lol As I am writing this blog he is currently calling me to pick up his toy that fell behind the couch. How old is he?,, he is 3 years old going on 18 hahaha. A little man that talks like an adult. As of now I think my family is really adjusting well from me being gone 4 days a week flying international. I am excited for tomorrow coz maybe (flying standby) for the first they will be on my flight to see my mom and brothers back home. Still crossing my finger but the load looks good so I am really hoping they can get on.

It's now 2:33 in the afternoon Hawaii time and I better get my ars of this computer to do some stuff around the house...lol... laterz ♣
