Actually I didn’t tell my mom that I wanted a makeup palette. But instead of UB’s Naked, I got this makeup compact from Lancome! Just as good I think :)

So here comes the interesting part.. my new year resolutions for 2012!

  • Take the Spanish DELE exam so I can put it under my resume
  • Graduate college with at least second-upper degree
  • Get a working permit and a job
  • Make more electone covers for Youtube
  • Read more books (omg this again!)
  • Control my spending and save money
  • Be more grateful of what I have (ahhem this sounds familiar)
  • Be more punctual!!!
  • Not to be overly sensitive (in general)
  • Be more patient (again, familiar)
  • Watch and listen more to Spanish/Latin entertainment
  • No more damaging my hair! Permitted for cutting and treatment only! lol
  • Tighten the relationship with my family
  • Have a trip with my bffs!!!
  • Join the charismatic group in church and get to know God better :)

Well, so far these are the things I can think of. I may or may not have more in the future :p

I still don’t have a fixed plan of how I’m gonna spend the New Years Eve. Hmmm.. what are your plans??

4 more days till 2012! (#TT69)

This TT post is the last one for this year! Crazy!!

Here I give you 2 videos that became my recent favorites on Youtube ;)

Great, great song. I think I like this one better than “Mr. Know It All”. The video is really cool too! Yay Kelly!

Anyone who knows Boyce Avenue definitely knows this song! This is the first song that Alejandro has ever written and produced. It’s been going around Youtube for years through fans’ self-created videos, but the band just released the official video last Monday. Not only that the song is the first song I knew from them, but it’s also my no.1 favorite amongst all their amazing songs!

How have you been enjoying the holidays so far???

Mine’s been pretty awesome, I guess ;)

Christmas recap post coming soon!

Feliz Navidad! (#TT68)

I got an early Christmas present last week :)

PC1441941Meeting JOE BROOKS!!!!

I look dumb in the picture with that huge grin but that shows how happy I was!

Joe Brooks, a super talented British singer-songwriter who currently resides in Los Angeles, came to Singapore last week to sing for 250 lucky fans in a small recital hall that had a fantastic acoustic. That rhymes! :p  


He was kind enough to meet each one of his fans after the concert for pictures, autographs and hugs <3 He’s such a humble and fun person. I had an amazing time!!! He said that he would come again next year! :DDD

Give a listen to his angelic voice for this Christmas song cover. Available on iTunes!!

I know that one of my Christmas wishes have already come true last week, which is great, but can I be a little more demanding since this is the holiday season?

Here’s my Christmas wishlist! :P

P1272_heroBenefit cheek and lip stain: Benetint 

P208603_heroBenefit concealer: Erase Paste

P253113_heroBenefit eye primer: Stay Don’t Stray (since my Urban Decay primer potion hardened coz I broke the case-.-) 

P267200_heroUrban Decay’s Naked Palette (I know this ain’t new and everyone has this, but I want it so bad coz it’s got wearable daily colors. I never saw it in Singapore Sephora though..)


P296502_heroWonderstruck by Taylor Swift 

P246512_hero Marc Jacobs’ Lola

What are you most excited about for Christmas??

I guess I’m excited about pretty much everything! Hahaha. My family is coming!! :D

Oh, and by the way, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JoJo!! Number 21 rocks! since my bday is sept 21st ahhem..

This love is ours (#TT67)

Elevator buttons in morning air
Strangers' silence makes me want to take the stairs
If you were here we'd laugh about their vacant stares
But right now my time is theirs

Seems like there's always someone who disapproves
They'll judge it like they know about me and you
And the verdict comes from those with nothing else to do
The jury's out, my choice is you

So don't you worry your pretty little mind
People throw rocks at things that shine
And life makes love look hard
The stakes are high, the water's rough
But this love is ours

You never know what people have up their sleeves
Ghosts from your past gonna jump out at me
Lurking in the shadows with their lip gloss smiles
But I don't care 'cause right now you're mine

And it's not theirs to speculate
If it's wrong and
Your hands are tough
But they are where mine belong and
I'll fight that doubt and give you faith
With this song for you

'Cause I love the gap between your teeth
And I love the riddles that you speak
And any snide remarks from my father about your tattoos will be ignored
'Cause my heart is yours

I loooove this song! The lyrics are so sweet and the video perfectly complements the song. Taylor described her style in this video as “corporate not chic”, as she wanted to look as an "unattractive” girl working in a completely dull and boring office. But I think it’s just so hard and nearly impossible to try to make her look unattractive. I mean, look at her!! Plus, I think her blouse and scarf look cute on her!

I can’t believe next week is Christmas!! :D

Have a fabulous week!

#TT66: JoJo + Yellowcard


JoJo is back and better than ever! The last time I listened to her was last year from her mixtape, Can’t Take That Away From Me, that she gave away for a free download on a website called I just found out that she actually released an album in 2009, All I Want Is Everything, but I guess it lacked of publicity. Her last official album I got was The High Road in 2006! How I missed JoJo!!

I love this song!! It is the first single of her latest album, Jumping Trains (which I will get really soon). I like this style better compared to a total RnB style.

And look how matured she looks right now! I think her black hair is pretty hot for her =p

P.S Her real name is Joanna Levesque. Meaning that we have the same first name and initials! Winniiiiinggggg.

The second song that I’ve been listening to lately is Sing For Me by Yellowcard. Just watch the video and if you don’t feel anything at all your heart is pretty much petrified.

Yellowcard Sing for Me Lyrics

I will go back to Singapore this Thursday! I will miss my bffs so much =(

Well, have a great week, everybody!

xo, Jo
