Contest: Win A Year Of Dresses from

NOTW: Essie Gym Dandy

Life is not just about the pinks and reds but of other color too. Meet Essie Gym Dandy, a surprisingly diff. color that caught my eye. When I saw it, I fell in love with it. I guess I have a soft spot for dark neutral colors.

This made me remember my BFF Queenie because she loves green! Every shade of it and I am honored to wear this for her since I miss her so much! :D

Comment below if you have something of this shade! :D Smile! :D

Auric Blends Egyptian Goddess solid perfume :)

I received the Egyptian Goddess solid perfume as a contest prize and since then I am hooked! Its actually a musk but who am I to say? I am not an expert in perfumes, just a lover. :)

When I like something, I just like it and love it and wear it everyday, end of story. :) But let me tell you a little bit about this one.

First off, I like the packaging where it is housed. The Hershey shaped window looks awesome and inside you can see the case of the solid perfume. At first, I thought it was a coconut. Believe me, I've seen way to many coconut in my entire life. Try growing up in Philippines!

Our top selling fragrance, Egyptian Goddess, combines soft florals, light powder and musk to create a perfume that is seductive, feminine and enticing.
Just ask the millions of customers who can't live without it.
Launched in August of 1993, this lovely perfume has been weaving tales of passion and infatuation for over 14 years. If you're not familiar with our best selling perfume and haven't yet been captivated by it's allure, don't wait any longer. With a distinctive collection of select products, you can experience Egyptian Goddess while you bathe, during a candle-lit dinner and as a wonderful perfume.

Smell is very light and sweet and lingers on all day. My hubby noticed it the first time and he  told me to always wear it since he likes it too. :D

So tell me dumplings, what perfume are you wearing now and why do you love it? Comment below!

Color Story: Eggplant

Disclaimer: This article is from Who What Wear Beauty. I do not own & composed any of the words here. Click here for the original article. (^^,)

Dark purple's elegant connotations might stem from its association with royalty, but the rich color's surprisingly easy to wear. Shades of eggplant flatter green, brown, and blue eyes and look almost decadent on winter cheeks. Plum lipstick might be more dramatic than a mulberry lip, but press it in with your fingers for a just-bitten stain or try a purple-tinted gloss. Like most colors, it's easiest to wear on your nails—a few of our favorites are pictured above! 

1. CoverGirl Lip Perfection Jumbo Gloss Balm ($9) 

2. Le Metier de BeEyeshadow aute Anamorphic Lash Mascara ($34) in Aubergine 

3. Trish McEvoy Eye Definer Powder ($18) in Deep Plum 

4. Dolce & Gabbana Classic Cream Lipstick ($30) in Amethyst 

5. Tarte Cheek Stain ($30) in Blushing Bride 

6. Kat Von D Tattoo Liner ($18) in Lapdance 

7. Ciate Velvet Manicure ($19) in Berry Poncho 

8. M.A.C. ($15) in Fig 1 

9. Yves Saint Laurent Forever Youth Liberator Eye Zone Serum ($115) 

10. Nail polish from top to bottom: Sonia Kashuk Nail Polish ($5) in Hocus Pocus, Maybelline Nail Polish ($3) in Plum Paradise, Revlon Colorstay Longwear Nail Enamel ($5) in Bold Sangria, Essie Nail Polish ($8) in Sole Mate, and Julep Nail Lacquer ($14) in Gayle.

Gift In Action: Crochet Darling Shell Cap

I have a new favorite! This pattern is lovely (aside from the red hehe). This was the hat I made the latest from last week and I was just stunned during the project as I create the shells. Not only is this comfortable but its so strikingly pretty. I am so obsessed with it. Kudos to Teresa of Crochet Geek for giving a wonderful and easy tutorial.

As usual, you can freely use any color of yarn and experiment. I used a bright cherry red to cheer me up during these wintry days ahead. I will update you more when I make more of these. In the meantime, tweet or instagram me your hat by tagging my name @giftprincess in your tweet or hashtag #giftprincess. Either way will work and enjoy!

Stay warm and healthy! Smile!

Gift In Action: Crocheted Beret

I call all Beret lovers like me. Here is an easy crocheted beret from the wonderful Teresa of Crochet Geek. Click here for the part 1 video and part 2 video. This is actually dark purple or orchid color yet it looks like blue in the following pictures.

Always remember that patterns are there to guide you and its really up to you how big you want your hat to be. Here I made it a little bigger just because I don't have a smaller hook but that doesn't mean I will try again! I actually like it a little slouchy so its also a win-win situation. :) Tweet and instagram me the outcome of your hat via @giftprincess. Enjoy!

Dreaming of being a lil bit French? Then make this hat now! Smile!

Shoedazzle's New Stylist is Rachel Zoe

Recently, I receive a letter from one of my top shoe web store, Shoedazzle:

Dear Gift Princess,

We started this company almost four years ago with one mission: To make women look and feel beautiful. The changes we're making now are in the spirit of keeping that mission strong, and I wanted to take a moment to personally explain them.

Chief Stylist, Rachel Zoe

First and foremost, I can't wait to introduce you to our new Chief Stylist: the one and only Rachel Zoe. We're thrilled to welcome her to the head of our style team, where she'll share her preeminent fashion expertise.

Daily deals & new designers

Another exciting change: Today's Fix–a special, 24-hour deal on a new, limited-release style waiting for you everyday. In addition to Today's Fix, we've upgraded our selection to include more brands in a wider range of prices, and you'll still have access to our ShoeDazzle label for $39.95.

What's coming soon...

There are two more changes you can expect in the coming months. The first is that we'll be raising our free shipping threshold from $39 to $49 on March 1st. Please be assured this change is fully focused on maintaining our quality and style. The second upcoming change is that we'll be offering VIP Membership for the truly obsessed...more details on that coming soon.

I know that–for many of our most loyal clients especially–some of these changes may take some getting used to. We're here, we're listening, and everything we do is to make you look and feel beautiful, in 2013 and beyond.

Thanks for being a part of ShoeDazzle,


Brian Lee 
Founder & CEO

I love these exciting news! Happy shopping dumplings!

Gift In Action: Kingston Cap

If you are aiming for a unique kind of hat then I suggest you making a Kingston Cap from the very talented Teresa of Crochet Geek. At first glance, I was doubtful but when I wore it, it was actually cute. I used a peachy color for this and I suggest you use darker colors if your hair is dark like mine. 

 Don't forget to thank Teresa and tweet and instagram me your crochet hat by using my username @giftprincess. 

C'mon and let's get hooking y'all! Smile!

Gift In Action: Rasta Hats

When I first saw this free patter from Hectanooga1, I fell in love with it! I thought to myself, "Wow, that is one pretty hat!". She used 9mm hook and two yarns so this hat is really comfortable and chunky. And I guarantee you, this is one easy hat. Literally, it only took me like a maximum of an hour to do this.

If a hat gives you warmth and beauty then hey why why not give it a try? And while you're at it, don't forget to always tweet and instagram me a picture of the hat using my name @giftprincess. Enjoy!

Hurry up and buy those hook and yarn and get crocheting! Smile!

Gift In Action: Patch Pyramid Beret

This is the second hat I made with a free pattern from Tracey Nguyen's youtube video. Berets are cool and this kind of pattern makes you stand out from the common berets you see from other people. 

Its very easy once you started and eventually get the knack out of it. I actually enjoy it and finishing this hat gave me a sense of accomplishment. So pat yourself in the back when you finish this wonderful beret. Don't forget to instagram and tweet me using @giftprincess so I could be informed of your progress! 

I will do a lot of Pyramid Patch in different colors and will update you guys of it! Smile!
