Happiness is...

A friend once told me
happiness is not something to be demanded
nor waiting to be given
because no one has the responsibility to make you happy
but yourself

Happiness is finding a balance
is creating
and giving

Happiness is a state of mind
to be happy or not is your decision to make

Happiness is wisdom
and boldness

As long as you are willing
happiness is only a teardrop away

Keep an open mind
do not let worries blind the heart
Keep an open heart
and you will find happiness wherever you look.

Finally, introducing my new shop item - Sophie

New Item! Romantic Rose Pink Dangle Stone Earrings

This piece is inspired by Jo Maloni's Red Roses cologne I purchased recently.  Red Roses is composed of seven types of roses from around the world, having a surprisingly clean, voluptuous scent which I adore, with a heart of crushed violet leaves and hints of lemon and spearmint, it unfolds like a bouquet of fresh-cut flowers. 

Earrings are made using premium quality rose pink color faceted glass stones wrapped in smooth gold prong settings. Finished with 16k gold plated rose shaped earring posts with tiny cubic zirconia details for touch of sparkle and sophistication. ❤

Bridal Pearl Bracelet. New Shop Item

New addition to my shop!  This sweet vintage inspired bridal pearl bracelet was made by me using white Swarovski crystal pearls and gold plated ribbon bow closure.  I found this 23k gold plated German made bow clasp a while ago, and instantly fall in love with its classy and dreamy design.  I made this bracelet with the intension of having it as part of my bridal collection JewelMeLove, but the simplicity of the piece allows it to add an elegant flare for any causal occasions as well.

Get Naked! Urban Decay Mini Haul with Picture of Me

Happy first day of Spring!

Finally I got my first dip of Urban Decay which I have being longing for since forever.  I ordered a few things from during their recent 20% off Friends and Family discount.  After received my items in the mail a few days later, I was totally psyched with what I saw.  Items arrived in perfect condition, packaging was so unique and just love the dark mystic purple color scheme throughout! 

Original packaging, edgy indeed!

The Naked palette (comes with a Good Karma shadow brush and a travel-size Eyeshadow Primer Potion in original formula), lipstick in color Naked, Good Karma multi-tasker brush, and Good Karma crease brush.  Also received the limited edition lipstick cap as a gift with lipstick purchase.  How sweet of them!

Peeking inside :) I did want to get the Naked 2 Palatte as well, but it was excluded from the 20% discount.  Gives me something to look forward to in the future, right!  Though, I do like the bigger mirror that comes with the Naked 2.

12 gorgeous shades, neutral yet daring, ranges from delicate matte champagne to dark glittery gunmetal.  I do wish the mirror is bigger as in the Naked 2, but I definitely see myself having fun with all the color options.
Here is a color swatch for you

Love this neutral color and the dagger logo ❤ One dislike though, about the lipstick is the cap is super tight!  It's difficult for me to get a good hold of the dagger and pull the lipstick out of the cap, really hurts my hand. 

Lipstick in the limited edition cap

What I love about Urban Decay is most of their products are cruelty-free (look for the bunnie with heart shaped ears)!

Finally, here is a picture of me wearing the Naked eyeshadow!  I did a really light makeup, so the colors don't show very well in this picture.  Will try a more dramatic look next time 。◕ ‿ ◕。

Konad Stamping Nail Art Haul

I recently purchased these Konad nail art stamping plates and accessories from  I was a little skeptical at first and thought for 7 dollar a piece, these plates aren’t very cheap.  But wow, they totally exceeded my expectations and worth every penny!  The plates are very finely made with great details, and the designs are just so adorable in person!

I got image plates m71, m77, and m79

Will be posting my Konad nail art tutorial soon!
