books i'm reading part 2

Imagination. Creative Visualization. Affirmations. These are some of the important words you'll encounter in the book "The Secret" by Rhonda Byrne.
Some insights from the book:
  • Affirmation: "I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious and happy."
  • See what you want as absolute fact.
  • Your thoughts become things.
  • The feeling of love is the highest frequency you can emit.
  • The creative process helps you create what you want in three simple steps: ask, believe and receive.
  • Visualization is the process of creating pictures in your mind of yourself, enjoying what you want.
  • Giving thanks for what you want in advance turbo-charges your desires and sends a more powerful signal out into the universe.
  • Tip the balance of your thoughts to wealth.
  • We will never run out of good things because there's more than enough to go around for everyone. Life is meant to be abundant.
  • You get to fill the blackboard of your life with whatever you want.
  • Do what you L O V E






Books i'm reading

The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra. The title alone of this book attracted me so i bought it immediately. I've always been into how-to-attain-success books ever since.
This book is filled with timeless wisdom and practical steps you can apply right away to achieve that life-altering success and abundance.


According to the author, the seven laws are:

1. The Law of Pure Potentiality.
Through silence, meditation and through non-judgment, you can access this first law. You must get in touch with the innermost essence of your being.
2. The Law of Giving
In our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives. Practicing this law is very simple, according to the author: if you want joy, give joy to others; if you want love, learn to give love; if you want attention and appreciation, learn to give attention and appreciation.
3.The Law of Karma
Every action generates a force of energy that returns to us in like kind... what we sow is what we reap.
4. The Law of Least Effort
There are three components to this law: The first is acceptance of people, situations, circumstances, and events as they occur. The second is responsibility. It means not blaming anyone or anything for your situation, including yourself. The third is defenselessness, which means that your awareness is established in defenselessness.
5. The Law of Intention and Desire
You must accept the present as is. Accept the present and intend the future. The future is something you can create through detached intention, but you should never struggle against the present.
6. The Law of Detachment
It says that in order to acquire anything in the physical universe, you have to relinquish your attachment to it.
7. The Law of "Dharma" or purpose in Life
Everyone has a purpose in life, a unique gift or special talent to give to others. 

What's also great about this book is the author's helpful outlined steps to practice
 the seven laws. It is incorporated after every chapter.

Two glam lipsticks!

I'm using 2 glam lipsticks these days. They are the long-wear kind. I'm all for long-wear lipsticks because it's a hassle to retouch always.. Lipsticks as you all know are the absolute, absolute staple in every makeup kit!

You might say I can't live without lipsticks and that's so true. Even without an eyeshadow, one can look glam with just the right lipstick. I like the red-browns, berries and red shades.
Here's the 1st one:

L'OREAL INFALLIBLE LONGWEAR LIP DUO COMPACT

stay ultraviolet

oops, sorry it's blurred..

Anyways, apply the non-transfer colour (left) first on clean lips and allow to dry for 1 minute
Then apply the conditioning balm (right) for comfort and shine. You can reapply the balm as often as you can throughout the day!

This lipstick glides on easily and it stays on for as long as 8 hours, even after eating. But not if you ate oily food :). It can easily be removed using baby oil.
This costs 895 ( not cheapo), but i really think the price is just right for a long-wear one. I bought this one at SM San Lazaro.

Here's the 2nd one:

REVLON COLORSTAY ULTIMATE LIPCOLOR

 

This one i like so much because it really stays on for hours, up to 12 hours.. It's a little bit tedious to apply though because of the applicator but you''ll get used to it in no time. It's shiny so there's no need to apply lip balm anymore. It can be removed easily with baby oil.

The price is 895. Quite steep but worth it. No need for touch-ups. I also bought this one at Sm San Lazaro.

recycled xmas decors

Because we love Mother Earth, we want to reuse and recycle as much as we can. This holiday season , in my place of work,  the bosses decided to come up with a xmas decorating contest. Recycled materials should be used. There are plenty of things in our ward to reuse such as used syringes (without the needles, of course, ouch), corrugated tubings, used bulbs, used vials. These are what came out...
syringes with colored liquid inside(jobos)

corrugated tubings as wreath, syringes as candles in the middle

my idea :)

used bulb as mini chandelier :)
an angel using syringe as body
my idea 2! :)

hope we win!

Engaged!

Kate Middleton's private visit to Westminster Abbey to meet key staff stirred speculation she will marry prince William there.
What a sad day for many girls who dreamt they'll marry prince william... It looks like she'll fit quite nicely in the royal family...She looks so regal already.

one good movie!

I've seen the movie, "The Social Network" and it was good! No, i take that back.. It was brilliant! I think it will garner nominations from the Oscars.. From Best Actor for Jesse Eisenberg to Best Script for Aaron Sorkin to Best Director for David Fincher.. I especially liked the acting of Jesse Eisenberg and Justin Timberlake. .Andrew Garfield was also amazing. Who will be nominated??? Abangan.. Who would have thought that Facebook started from a dorm room 6 years ago because of a relationship boo-boo..Now it has become a social revolution with almost 400 million members...
