    New Year's

    On my last entry, i mentioned that i was in Vegas..Yep, we made it to Vegas..struggling, but we did..LOL..let's just say that WE (all of us) had was, all of us were sick..coughing, runny nose, fevers and what-not. i really thought we weren't going. we only were sure of going the night before our planned departure, so just think about how last minute everything was..packing, renting the car, etc..

    the only thing i was excited about was going to CCO and the MAC Pro store..**coz Arizona's gay and we don't have hoo..

    I'll babble a lil more about the whole trip then show you pictures *FOTDs too*..

    So, we left at around 6:30 am **we were supposed to leave an hour earlier, but oh well, if you are familiar with how Filipinos are, then you'd know 6:30 is still on time..anybody familiar with the term "Filipino time"?..5 hours later, we arrive Vegas.

    we all were still exaggeration, i'm talking about, each every single person in our group. we ate lunch at DJ's Bibingkahan, one of Vegas' famous Filipino restaurants, nothing special though, they just had like gazillion viands to choose from. after that was SHOPPING time. we went to the Boulevard..we "discovered" a new *well at least to us it is* store, Heritage 1981 which is also owned by the same company who owns Forever21, i think the lady said it's like the brand which replaced Rampage..gaaah i didn't even know that doesn't exist anyhoo, we were all amazed how cheap everything was, i didn't go TOO crazy though, i still had the Pro store and the CCO in mind. When we got home, we just started getting ready to go to the club. My friend was able to put us in Tao's guest list. as i've said earlier, i will also include FOTDs/FOTNs in this entry, just let me babble some more..haha..ok so we got ready and everything, however, when we got there, the guest list already closed so, we decided not to go anymore. we just had a "pictorial" everywhere, so we didn't get ready for nothing, right?..

    Second day, ate at Pinoy Pinay, then went shopping again.

    Third day, New Year's Eve, the bf and i went to LVPO (Las Vegas Premium Outlet), as i've said, going to the CCO was one of the reason why i wanted to go to Vegas. I got a lil bit disappointed though, coz i was expecting to see Barbie Loves MAC (which came out awhile back, i wasn't into MAC yet) and also the C-Shock collection (which came out a few months ago, i think)..i didn't see not one product from either collections, i didn't bother to check the lip stuff though..hmm..i got almost all the eye shadows they have except for a couple, i think, that had lustre finish. i also got a couple shadesticks, studio stick concealer, charged water, loose blot powder, all the blushes they have, not too much right?..MAC whores, back me up on this. i'll post pics below too..ok, so you can just imagine how blissful i was..

    Anyhoo, later that night, we just walked around the strip together with 909283470 was fun though, we had like our own party, random people screaming and dancing with us..crazy but a lot of fun. ok, i don't want to bore you with all these babbling, it already has taken me i don't know how many days already because of my babbling..let's get on with the pictures..
