Kikaysimaria and BB Cream Addict Pre-Holiday Giveaway Contest : Ends 10/25

I look fresher, don't you agree?Though I’m turning 31 (*ulk*) in a couple of days, it was only this year when I learned how to properly put on makeup. I used to just slap on face powder, line my eyebrows and put on a  li’l bit of color on my eyes. I didn’t care back then, but just looking at the gorgeous ladies who blog about beauty and fashion inspired me to learn more about makeup and, well, looking good. For now, though, I’d like to focus on prettifying myself as I learn more about makeup.

I’ve bought a couple of beauty products the past months and one thing that I fell in love with is my Maybelline BB cream. I know, that’s like one of the basic BB cream I can ever use, but I loved its effect on my face. Some may need hormone replacement therapy to look and feel better, but I know makeup can help me with that. Ever since I started using BB creams, I’ve observed that I look fresher without the too-much-makeup-on look. And, so, I wanted to try more BB creams to see which one would really work for my combination skin.

This is why I’m joining Kikay si Maria and BB Cream Addict’s Pre-Holiday Giveaway contest. Just check out all these prizes! 🙂

Review: Tenba Vector Top Load 1 DSLR Camera Bag

Ever since I got my new Nikon D3100 DSLR camera (posted here), I’ve scoured our collection of bags here at home to find something that would be perfect for whenever I need to bring it along with me. I don’t want anything that looks too obvious that I’ve got my precious DSLR with me. Plus, of course, I prefer bags that won’t be a burden or ruin my look for the day. I ended up with my bro’s bulky black bag. 🙁 But, thank goodness I found out about Tenba camera bags.

Tenba Vector collection

Tenba is a popular brand in carrying solutions for over 30 years. They’re known for their signature “Crafted Without Compromise” quality of materials and hardware they use for each of their bag.

Since my current bag isn’t really designed for cameras, I still have to put my DSLR inside my Nikon bag that came with it. And so whenever I need to take the camera out, I have to first unzip my bulky bag then open the flap of that Nikon bag. Too much of a hassle. I need a better bag!

And so when I was sent this Tenba Vector Top Load 1 camera bag in Cadmium Red for review, I was pretty excited (just look at the number of photos on this post 😀 ) to try it.

Tenba Vector Top Load 1 in Cadmium Red

First off, I love the design. The shade of the color red all over the bag, the straps and inside was just right for me. I wouldn’t mind bringing this along anytime since most of my clothing are either black or something dark. But, it sure would suit almost anything I wear because for me, its color is versatile. Everything, including the zipper and add on cloth and rain cover were custom-dyed to match. Cool, eh? 🙂

The bag looks very sturdy, as you can see from the above photo. Just by the feel of it, I can tell that this bag was made of high quality material that’s designed to last. Tenba also claims that this is weather-resistant, something I didn’t want to test though. But, just by the feel and look of it, I know it’s true.

Front and stretchable side pockets for more storage space

There are also multiple pockets around the bag. The front one can be used for your extra batteries and memory cards. The side stretchable pockets can be used for your phone or any small item.
