Splash of Fireworks

Wishing everyone a glamorous and prosperous new year! 

Nude lips + Fireworks Eyes = Perfect NYE makeup!

BH cosmetics 120 palette, mix of matte and shimmer. The colors are very very vibrant!  Don't forget to use a primer underneath to maintain the colors on your lids. 

 Look at how bright these colors are! 

Mix and Match the colors on your lid but most importantly have well defined eyes with dark eyeliner. I also drew on fake eye lashes with liquid eye liner. 

As the wise modern day song-philosopher, Katy Perry, would say:

Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what your worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework
Come on slet your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gunna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own

Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It's always been inside of you, you, you
And now it's time to let it through

Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what your worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

Baby you're a firework
Come on slet your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gunna leave 'em goin "Oh, oh, oh!"

Pouncing on my Prey

 Top: H&M High Waist Pleated pants: Jezebell Shoes: N.Y.L.A.
Fur Vest: INC. Ring: F21, Urban Outfitters

Fashion Tip: Too much chunky rings is never enough! 

Not sure why but I have this crazy attraction to leopard printed clothing and things. Adding another fav for the winter is FUR... more fur the better (of course faux fur!)  Hope Everyone is enjoying their holiday so far... I'm so glad I have this week off from school and work >_<'' ...only if this feeling could last longer. After new years, I will be back in battle mode again. In the mean time... let me soak up all the sleep I can get and enjoy the mornings of not jolting out of my bed after snoozing my alarm 4 times. 

Any plans for New Years Eve?

Shake It Like A.....

Polaroid Picture!

My new toy in my camera collection [FUJIFILM 7S] mother dearest got this for me for X-Mas and I just started playing this over the weekend. The Quality is pretty impressive. As much I love the picture quality of DSLR cameras, I have an undeniable attraction to the nostalgia -photos taken with these not-so-perfect cameras and also medium format cameras like Holga, Diana+, and Lomo. I still have tons of film I took with my holga camera that I should probably develop...soon. hehe

Mr. Raw received some really delicious Belgium salted-caramel-chocolate from his co-workers and we decided to cut up some Gouda Cheese to go with it and wash it down with a nice glass of dessert wine. mMmm.... delicious! I never thought the day would come when I actually enjoy drinking wine and eating cheese. Honestly.. this is a great way to relax and enjoy life. You should all try it sometime (if u are over age 21 in the US) hehe

I gave Mr. Raw a bunch of Nikon DSLR camera accessories for the Holidays and one of them was a Fish-Eye Lens. This lens is SUPER SUPER GOOD and FUN! I think you can take some amazing and silly pics with this...hopefully we'll be able to master this so take some really nice pictures soon. 

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Any Plans for New Years???

San Diego in December

Quick Weekend Summer Escape...

In Running away from the wet and cold winter of Nor-Cal, Mr. Raw & I packed our bags and escaped to Sunny So-Cal, San Diego, to get a quick surge of the Summer Heat. It was a nice two days in San Diego pigging out and relaxing on the beach. We had no idea there was going to be such a big difference in temperature with just an hour's plane ride difference....instead of packing summer clothing, we brought scarfs and jackets. Luckily my so-cal senses didn't entirely fail me as I remembered to pack my short harem pants and a thin flowy top "just in case".It really didn't feel like the winter when everyone on the beach was wearing barely anything... we saw girls with wedgies playing volley ball in bikinis two sizes too small with many Jersey shore 'look-a-likes'.... There were also parents  watching their kids running around getting sunburned while they enjoyed their InTouch magazine under the beach umbrella...oOOh, and CAN'T forget a cougar wearing a leopard print sheer top with her wrinkled and aged folded skin peaking through.  How beautiful it was to people watch on the beach while sun bathing ^_^

'Tis The Season to eat Crabs!!!!


Crab season is here!!! Pick yourself up some fresh live crabs at your local Asian grocery store, the places near my house is selling for between $2.00-$3.00/lb.  This recipe is simple and fast... and super delicious!!!

Preparing and cooking the crab:
1. clean & scrub it
2. boil water in wok or pot
3. cook crab in boiled water
4. take it out...let it cool and cut with knife. (be careful!) 
5. take out the "lungs" which are the mushy frilly things on the side.
6. take the crab shell off and slice the legs into 4 parts
7. set aside and prepare noodles/ veggies/ noodles

Noodles: 1. cook in boiled water, set aside. (no need to cold rinse)
Veggies: Boil baby bok choy (or any veggie of your choice)
Sauce: Cut up green unions and Ginger
1. heat up wok with oil
2. add green unions and ginger
3. add dark and light soy sauce (don't cook it for too long or else it'll burn)
4. mix flour and hot water (this will make the sauce less watery)
Plating: put noodles in bowl with veggies on the edges, place crab back like you never cut it up, then pour sauce over it. TA-DA! you are done! 

YUmMm! Delicious!!! 
See how easy it is... try it and let me know how you like it ^_^

"You don't have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces - just good food from fresh ingredients"- Julia Child 

BONUS of the day: bokable performs with his new guitar! he is so talented... maybe you guys can do some song requests for him =)
