yey and nay

Kei managed to install the wall mirror in our dining area. Good and not so good… the upside is the space looks bigger, the bad is on some angles it reflects our messy kitchen as well as our makeshift clothesline (rainy season quick fix) in our laundry area. -We have to live with that for the meantime until we manage to decorate the area.  

We really need to speed up getting our home a display cabinet – our Game of thrones Funko pop collection is taking over more than half of our living room wall, as well as “clean up” our mess-y area in the kitchen. – We are short on a proper display cabinet/kitchen storage/and too many small kitchen appliances for our tiny space. How to do that, I still don’t know. If our budget would allow, hopefully we can make these home improvements before the year ends.

our GOT funko pop collection as of the moment

*The GOT pop collection is still growing, they will have two more additions by the weekend.

Another good and not so good would be my fall beauty finds.

beauty-fall?!

I love, love, love the colors of my Colorpop After Hours super shock eye shadows. While I really love the scent of My Burberry edp -and it took me quite a long while to get one, my skin eats it up. So, i’m in the hunt for a fall fragrance.

Back to the one I do love, the Colorpop After Hours super shock shadow kit is versatile! it can be used to create soft neutral effect or a dramatic look. It contains six beautiful colors namely: Super Hard Core (gold shade), DGAF (a rusty brown with lots of glitter), Wattles (beige pink), Amaze (peachy gold), Sailor (beige), Drift (cranberry red). I think it is perfect for creating the trending cranberry/maroon eye look for fall!- without being too much. Or leave the red shade (drift) for a more neutral look. 

And because I like it very much I wanted to get more! So imagine my delight when I saw that Colorpop is having a buy 2 take 1 promo on their super shock shadows! -I googled reviews from Temptalia to look the the best ones to get, and composed a list. Only to be disappointed that when I was about to order, the promo has ended. Just my luck or maybe the universe is telling me to chill for a bit. Anyhow, till the next post!

sprouts

After a week or two and some days more… we have this. The seeds gotten from the supermarket are now seedlings!

vinca sprouts

They stay in full sun, and watered once every two days -I am controlling the amount of water they get. *since our weather seems to be sunny in the mornings with afternoon showers. The zinnias also have sprouted but they are still so little- will be posting once they grow a bit bigger. *I planted them a week after the vincas* I’m excited for these to grow and add some color to my patio!

start of BER

I’m back. Back to gardening and home posts that is.

Since my mobile network connection was shot, I turned to gardening…

hopefully these will live and flower to add color to our patio

Found these seed packets on the supermarket and have managed to germinate the vinca seeds in 1 week. Hopefully the zinnias I planted yesterday would germinate too. Live long and prosper plants!

On the home front we are still slowly working on making our place feel more like us, in terms of decor. -Since its already September its just a matter of time before Christmas is here again and we are always having guests over, we are starting to look for additions/decorations for our place.

Being small space/city dwellers like us, we are constantly looking for ways to make our small space seem bigger. A well known trick is to use mirrors to open up the space as they give the illusion of a larger space.  We are pretty keen on doing just that to our dining area because we do not have any windows there.

We were going for something that gives this effect. But on a smaller scale. -Photo from the internet

It’s a good thing that we chanced upon Crate and Barrel’s sale last week and managed to snag this beautiful charcoal arched mirror designed by Blake Tovin.  It has a subtle curve that makes it look like a (cottage) window and yet the mirror still looks looks every-bit modern with its clean lines.

Crate and Barrel Arch mirror in charcoal -the exact mirror we got and have yet to hang.

We are hanging it up by our dining table just like in the inspiration photo. Maybe this coming weekend we would be able to mount it on the wall. The delay in hanging up the mirror was because we have some OCD issues freshened up the paint at home last weekend, right after we got the mirror.  

How was the start of your ber months?

 

^update, My mobile connection is now ok. finally. =)
