The Best & Worst Dresses at VMA 2011

Unfortunately, I’m not satisfy with the way celebrities look at this year VMA, just look at my list! the worst and the undecided looks are so much more than the best looks, let jump into my list, shall we?


beautiful pregnant lady in Lanvin. Congratutalion B!

Zoe Zaldana in Barbara Bui

Pete Wentz

Kim Kardashian. 
She looks gorgeous, she knows what works for her, but I’m dying to see her in other look.

Demi Lovato

Victoria Justice


The hair? Ummm… the dress? No. It didn’t flatter her shape

Miley Cyrus 
Too much, floral print mix with animal print? probably not a good idea

Justin Bieber. 
I do love the YSL jacket, the black shirt, and the geeky glasses, the rest? not so much

Katy Perry
You are a beautiful girl, just stop trying too hard Katy.

Niki Minaj

Lady Gaga/Joe Calderon

Undecided (I don't love it but I don't hate it)

Britney Spears
Better than usual Britney, but not impressive enough.

Kelly Rowland
Somewhat I love this dress, but there is something about it that makes me confuse? It is inspired by the black swan? I don’t know, maybe black duck :D

Katie Holmes
She needs to experiment, this look rather save and boring.

Selena Gomez in Julian Macdonald
It just too mature for her and I think it is going to look more beautiful if it didn’t have a train.

What do you think? who is your favorite? who is your least favorite? are you agree with me? comment below :)

Small Collective Haul + Reviews

The Body Shop Body Butter in “Mango” and “Sweet Lemon”
Did I tell you that I love The Body Shop body butter? In my opinion it is seriously the best product from the company, excellent moisture, wide range of selection, and it seems like these body butters great enough to spread on my toast! The mango scent is one of my all times favorites, the sweet lemon is the latest scent, to me it smells ok, light citrusy smell, not the sour and invigorating lemon smell that I want, but it does the job, moisturize my dry skin plus gives a silky smooth feeling.

The Body Shop Face and Body Brush
I bought this brush because I desperately need a better quality brush in my collection. Since MAC brushes are too expensive and Sigma Brushes hard to come by in my country, I decide to give it a try, the first thing came to my mind when I tried it was “the handle waaay too huge and not comfortable, the brush itself on the other hand, is very soft and give me a nice application.” No regret buying this brush. Especially at that day The Body Shop gave me 45% off for everything that I bought! Great deal!

Revlon Colorstay Foundation in “Nude” for combination/oily skin
I bought it about a month ago, after spent months thinking about should I buy it or not. After I heard good reviews on makeupalley and so many beauty gurus rave about this foundation on youtube, I decide to give it a try. The first thing come to my mind when I used it was “wow the hole is huge! Why don’t they give me pumps?!” so much product comes out, create a waste, create a mess!  The foundation itself give me a medium coverage and flawless finish, so far I never have a breakouts after using this foundation, I just think the packaging can be better.

EOS Lip Balm in “Summer Fruit”
Yes I love Youtube, and when so many beauty gurus swear by this cute lip balm, I know I had to have it! So I went online and purchased this on, it is much more expensive than the original price on EOS website but what can I do? This product is not available in my country T_T but it is worth it, even so many celebs love it! it is organic, gluten-free, paraben-free, petrolatum-free, and phthalate-free. It smells yummy and taste good! Sweet natural taste, not a sweet turn to bitter chemical taste that I find in my Hawaiian Tropic “Tropical flavor”. Overall I’m pleased by this cute little ball, and I will definitely try the other flavors, lemon drop and sweet mint are intriguing.

Celebrities love it too

Have you ever try the product I mention above? What do you think about it?

Tag! I tag everyone!!!

Hi girls, I found this tag on Youtube and I want to share my answers to all of you

blush or bronzer?
I prefer blush, my favorite right now is Revlon Powder blush in ‘Soft Spoken Pink, it just a very natural sheer medium pink color. I rarely wear bronzer because everytime I try to use it, my complexion just looks dull and ‘dirty’ maybe I haven’t found the right product or the right technique? I don’t know girls…just let me know if you have a suggestion.
lip gloss or lipstick? both. it just depends on my mood.
eye liner or mascara? mascara, but now, I’m in love with my MAC Fluidline Eyeliner in ‘Blacktrack’ this cream eyeliner seriously stays put.
foundation or concealer? concealer, can’t live without my MAC Studio Finish Concealer SPF 35. Love this product. Foundation is too heavy for me.
neutral or color eye shadow? both, again this is really depends on my mood.
pressed or loose eye shadows? pressed, I don’t like powder because it can be messy! Fall outs and everything.
brushes or sponges? brushes.

Long or short? short. I think a very long nails look tacky.
Acrylic or natural? I prefer natural all the way.
Brights or darks? depends on my mood. I do love black, burgundy, and navy but sometimes I use pale pink, lavender, blue, or red.
Flower or no flower? no flower. Crazy nail art just creeps me out.

perfume or body splash? perfume all the way! I’m a perfume addict! Right now I’m rotating among CK “Euphoria”, Carolina Herrera “CH”, and Gucci “Guilty”. Although I love Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works body sprays J
lotion or body butter? both. Lotion on daily basis and body butter when I want to feel pampered. The Body Shop mango and shea body butters are my all time favorite, now I’m curious about their lemon and wild cherry body butters.
body wash or soap? both. Trying different scents, different shapes, and ingredients are always fun. I really want to try more Lush product, but seriously that stuff is very expensive in my country.

jeans or sweat pants? jeans.
long sleeve of short? short but not sleeve less.
dresses or skirts? dresses. It is easier, you don’t have to think about mix and match.
stripes or plaid? stripes
flip flops or sandals? both but I think sandals are cuter
scarves or hats? scarves
studs or dangly earrings? both
necklaces or bracelets? both
heels or flats? flats. I’m 5’7 tall (170 cm) and in my country I considered to be a tall girl. Wearing heels and everybody are going to stare.
cowboy boots or riding boots? riding boots! So much sexier
jacket or hoodie? jacket although I admit hoodie is much more comfy.

curly or straight? I like them both.
bun or ponytail? both, just depends on my mood
bobby pins or butterfly clips? bobby pins.
hair spray or gel? light to medium hold hair spray! Don’t like the super strong one and I don't like gel either.
long or short? long hair like Victoria’s Secret angels J
light or dark? I like them both as long it still looks natural.
side sweep bangs or full bangs? no bangs! I had tried sweep, I had tried blunt and I don't want to go back (at least, not in the near future)
up or down? both, depends on my mood.

Rain or shine? ummm cloudy?
Summer or winter? summer on the beach J Everyday is summer in my country and seriously… it gets super hot everyday
Fall or spring: fall
Chocolate or vanilla: to eat? chocolate I love dark chocolate. To smell? vanilla.

I tag everyone!!! but especially I really want to hear the answers from some of fellow beauty bloggers here:

check them out! I love their blogs

Zoey Deschanel

Avril Lavigne

Nina Dobrev in Dolce and Gabbana

Worst Dressed

I do love the color, but for me it just looks like she was wearing a curtain or something. I just wish she was using a belt on her waist to add definition.

Again, a belt will do wonders.

Ashley Greene in Givenchy
I love the idea of simplicity but the shape of this dress is not flater her body
