2012: An iPhone/Instagram Retrospective

2012 was definitely full of ups and downs for me, and while I still didn’t blog as much as I’d hoped I did manage to post an entry every month… and as always Instagram and TwitterΒ were the easiest places to find me. While I have a backlog of pics to edit and post, I thought I’d pull my favourite Instagram photos to sum up my year! πŸ˜€

Christmas!!

A post shared by Justine (@asiyakei) on

I enjoy that my annual family Christmas is a fire hazard πŸ˜‰ We celebrated at my Tita G’s this year!

Obviously you want to see the rest of my year πŸ™‚

November

Xtine and I determined that the Violet Storm Estee Lauder palette was the perfect mix of the two Tines as it was both purple AND hot pink. Obviously I made sure we both (eventually) owned it πŸ™‚

My #YSL bag is wee and tiny and adorable!!!

A post shared by Justine (@asiyakei) on

Xtine also influenced me to buy a lot of bags, although my own desire for a bow bag didn’t help ;). This is YSL from Vestiare Collective – it’s very cute and tiny!

October

My first Le Metier de Beaute Kaleidoscope had to be in Cherry Blossom and my collection has only expanded since. Fitting for my birthday month, I think!

Mentaiko Pasta from Carino Bistro which surprised me by being so awesome it’s now my favourite restaurant in Calgary. We went here for my birthday!

September

This was my go-to FOTD in Chicago πŸ™‚

I also reorganized my stash… this is one drawer πŸ˜‰

I don’t post a lot (ever) about nail polish, but Estessimo TiNS made up my 90% of my manicures. LOVE this line.

In April!! 😦

And that was two weeks earlier. This is why XTine won’t visit me except in the summer. Β Haha.

EOTD with Yaby, UDPP, and L'Oreal infallibles

A post shared by Justine (@asiyakei) on

I spent most of March in Philippines which was way too hot for my normal makeup routine, but this was my EOTD from my cousin’s wedding πŸ™‚

I had Xiao Long Bao in Hong Kong, which I need to revisit because mostly I associate the whole 3 day trip with being sick and annoyed with my family, unfortunately. D:

I miss Philippines though!!

February

I went back to Philippines for the first time since I was 3 πŸ™‚

I miss Philippines 😦 And having breakfast with my family every morning and the fresh buko from the vendor for breakfast (outside!!)

Also the mango. I miss mango!

A post shared by Justine (@asiyakei) on

These were ALL of my L’Oreal Colour Infallible eyeshadows last January. I’m pretty sure they’ve tripled. LOL.

Thank you for following me this year – here’s to a fabulous 2013!
