Pantone Color for 2013 is Emerald

Did you know that Emerald is May’s birthstone jewelry, and my, my, I was born in the month of May, that is why I am so happy and excited, because Emerald being 2012’s color of the year means there will be lots and lots of fashion jewelry and clothes in the shade of green, what a refreshing year we have.

I've been a sucker for emerald since I was 16, and mind you I am only in my early 20's. I still remember, when I was in Elementary my favorite color is pink, then it changed into sky blue when I entered High School, at 16, my mom told me that Emerald is my birthstone jewelry, that explains the emerald gemstone in my earring which I am wearing since I was 3 she said. From then on Emerald is on my top favorites.

Anyway, here's a photo of my very first emerald earring, the one I was wearing when I was three. I just notice that young girls usually have stud earrings, I guess most of us started with a stud earring, I remember when I got my second piercing a mommy and her baby was first in line and her daughter's very first earring is also a stud.

Here's another emerald jewelry from my collection. I just want to clarify, I only have a few ones, I'm not rich, neither my parents. Anyway, the heart shaped was given by my mom, while the cross necklace is bought by me when I receive my very first paycheck, well, not actually the first since I saved some more because its quiet expensive and my salary is just on the basic considering I am a fresh graduate.

Well, too much about me. Lets all have a Merry Christmas and Happy New year. Cheers!

Pretty in Minutes Step #1 Wash your face

This should be the foundation of your skin care regimen. Whether it’s in the morning or at night, never skip washing your face because it’s the only way for you to get most of the dirt and oil off your face.

Here are 5 simple ways that would help you clean your face properly:
  1. Use a facial cleanser that suits your skin type
  2. Once you lather on the soap on your face, massage it lightly all over for at least a minute
  3. Exfoliate using a facial scrub at least twice a week
  4. To avoid bacteria build up, use paper towels or a clean towel when wiping your face
  5. Start and end the your facial cleansing by splashing your face with water for at least 3 times
You’ll surely be wide awake and ready for the day after a refreshing face cleaning.

Pretty in Minutes Step #2 Tie your hair in a messy bun

Hollywood is just plain crazy about this hairstyle. Now, everyone can just look fabulous even when they’re running late or having a bad hair day. Messy buns are really the epitome of effortless style and beauty so we should use it more often to achieve an effortless chic style.

Messy buns are easy to do. My favorite way of doing it is just putting my hair all together in a high ponytail, and then I twist my hair on a ponytail several times before I bring it up and around to create a circle. Once I have a bun, I secure my hair with about 6 bobby pins to keep it in place for the entire day.

Since there are many ways to do the messy bun, find which one best fits your style. You can stick to one that works for you or try as many ways depending on your outfit and mood.

Pretty in Minutes Step #3 Slather on moisturizer and sunscreen

If you only have time to put on one or two facial creams, let it be your moisturizer and sunscreen. These two would keep your face supple and protected throughout the day so never forget them.

Selecting the right moisturizer and sunscreen for you is like looking for the perfect pair of leather boots. Aside from finding one that fits you well, you also have to consider what it’s made of (materials used) and if it suits your lifestyle well. Getting a pair of knee-high boots doesn’t make much sense if you live right next to the beach, right?

Pretty in Minutes Step #4 Draw your eyebrows

Did you know that darkening your eyebrows can make so much difference in the way you look? Having well defined brows does wonders in opening up your eye area so don’t forget to define those arches very well to make the upper half of your eyes prominent and noticeable.
