SPEXship Happy Snaps <3

I know, I've been a tardy blogger. I'm missing you all badly, but the past weeks had been chaotic (mostly in a good way though). I'm yet to finish my month long project in the office, played a key role in the company party committee, and of course, did a whole lots of holiday shopping, mostly for the people I love. So, no complaints, I'm a happy camper. =)

I'm still loaded with work, but I can't wait to share these snaps from my company party last Friday. Pose n' Print guys were so cool & very accomodating, I highly recommend them. =)

I'll post my FOTN separately. But a BIG SHOUT OUT to my lovely friend, Kay, for the AWESOME, AWESOME lashes you gave me! It really turned heads. =p

Happy Holidays, everyone!

Much Love,
The NeuroChiq

Big Sister & Proud of It


Some X years ago, I was the bunso (youngest), only girl and Dad's fave. I was living the big brat life, until that one fateful day when my parents announced their split up.

I never heard from Dad for so long, and I was too busy on being mad at him, while I took my mom's role of standing for the family. It was really a world upside down.

Fast forward to some X years again, when wounds are healed and burnt bridges fixed, came a beautiful little girl. My half sister.

The world frowns, and disapproves of me & my mom's decision to accept her, but they can smirk all they want because that's what UNHAPPY PEOPLE DO. While I FORGIVE, I SHARE, and I LOVE. I'm one proud Ate. (big sister)


Santa, Cheska & me @ my company's Kiddie Party last Saturday.
She's the sweetest kid.

It's a Lonely Season



My brother just called me to inform that our mom’s tourist visa should be out this week. Mom is really close with kuya, and needless to say, he is the favorite. I’m glad that mom will be with my brother and her first grandson for the holidays. [kuya’s wife gave birth to a beautiful baby boy 2 weeks ago]. She will be abroad for 3 months.

But now that mom will be leaving soon to join my brother in UAE, and my dad in KSA, I just realized I’ll be all alone this Christmas! Sure, I have tons of wonderful aunts, Grandma and cousins, but they can’t compare with mom-dad-sibling in the same table for Noche Buena. And it’s been years!

I’ve always wanted my own place and 100% independence, but I guess holidays are really just not a good timing to jumpstart my 3-month test run of independence. I mean who would eat my you’ll-forget-your-name delicious pasta? Hah!

Have you ever been alone for Christmas? Feels like Kevin of Home Alone, yeah?


I hope you had a great weekend, girls! My own plate was also full, but I don't have time for a longer post to share at the moment. =( And tomorrow will surely be a LOOONG day.


Much Love,

I WANT...MiLea MakeUp Brushes


One of the perks of being an online seller, is that you have the biggest & most valid reason to... BUY. Yep, you heard me. I PERSONALLY BUY, TRY and TEST my products, and if I'm impressed, then that's the ONLY TIME they land on my multiply store. And I honestly rejected quite a few, abiding by my usual strict, OC taste.

Milea Mineral Makeup recently released its new batch of makeup brushes, and I really went nuts! While I respect the quality of branded brushes, especially the infamous MAC, I'm also considerate on getting budget friendly but quality finds. The last brush set I got was from Venus & Mars, and I' so HAPPY with it --- all the more because it didn't break my bank! =)

And now, here comes Milea Makeup, with their own line of brushes: simple, sleek, soft but firm, these babies are up for a challenge! Their brushes are either made from natural goat's hair and/or high grade synthetic hair. I have EXAMINED each piece carefully, USED them, FELT them, even tried PULLING them, and finally gave the green light.

My very own set (as I used the testers before) is arriving next week & I just can't wait...it made me feel more Christamas-sy!

Here's a peek for you:




KABUKI NATURAL @ 540.00 only


KABUKI SYNTHETIC @ 640.00 only - Reminds me of Body Shop!



ES BRUSHES



ROUND POWDER BRUSH - Perfect for MMU sifters @ 225.00 only






ANGLED SHADER BRUSH @ 250.00 only





9 piece brush set with pouch @ 1,900.00

If you are interested, you may get in touch with me. I'll be more than happy to EXTEND MY OWN SELLER'S DISCOUNT to my girls in blogspot! =) Happy Friday!
Much Love,

OOTN: Animal Print - Take 2



HOW'S MY SATURDAY LIKE?


Hours and hours of gift shopping. VIP room at a posh bar with my girlfriends. [as my dear BFF, Tara, turns 24] Leaving after a few good songs. A pair of new booties. Pure, therapeutic girltalk til 4 in the morning. Some good coffee and a sense of gratitude for having wonderful people in my life.


HOW'S YOURS?





My girls --- Yhel, Libay, Karen, me & Tara @ LAX
