Vanity measured

You Are 63% Vain

You’re a little vain, but you also work hard for your good looks.
Just remember, everyone knows you are a total hottie. You don’t have to remind them.

Got his from Gracita and read it at Jhoanne’s and thought it looks like fun to do it as well.

I guess I am a bit vain. But I am simply taking care of myself.

Here are some habits/routines I do :
1. I do a facial routine everyday. For morning, cleanser (I do this everyday in the shower). Then toner, then moisturizer with SPF 15. At night, I use use toner again and then a night moisturizer and eye cream. I use the ANEW line from Avon.

2. Last month I had a facial and will do it again this month or every two months. If not, at least every season.

3. I like getting pedicures, So every 2-3 weeks I get a manicure and pedicure done. I go to this Pinay who really does it well and does not charge an arm and a leg like the salon although the salon treatment is heavenly – i just love those, just way too expensive. $40 to get a pedicure. Maybe once or twice a year.

4. Eversince watching “What not to wear” from TLC, I have gotten better with my wardrobe choices which means more shopping when the season changes and getting the latest fashions appropiate for my age and my figure.

5. Hair, I use Pantene. I try to get hair colour every 3-4 months. I tried doing it myself but results were not very good. Gray hairs and roots show up faster. So I’m sticking to a hair specialist from now on.

6. I love open toed shoes or sandals, so this summer I take advantage of being able to do that. However it’s been making my soles and ankles a bit rough, so I like to pamper my feet with some special lotions and scrubs.

7. I am a wash and wear kind of gal, with hair and clothes. So this is one thing I need to improve on.
For the hair – I rush to get ready for work so I have barely anytime to do my hair drying and sometimes straightening. So I just let it air dry. In the winter, I try hard to blow dry before going out. Results are not always good since it gets frizzy. I have to be more dilligent if I want to be pretty huh?
For clothes – I need an automatic ironer , if there is such a thing. Its so expensive to get clothes dry-cleaned. Maybe Pining can help me with my ironing.

8. I like to match my jewelries with my clothes.

9. I dont wear a lot of makeup, sometimes I have none at all. Lipstick is a great touch for sure. Especially if you use a lip-liner.

10. Eyebrows when trimmed or shaped nicely makes you look younger, which reminds me I have to get mine done. I’ve been having it threaded now instead of waxed.

  1. Interesting Leah, especially #1, as you remind me of my mother, she does that too 🙂
    I’m not really into that whole process, but I do use a moisturiser, as my skin gets very dry especially in the winter.
    But I’m very particular about the hair.
    Sorry, I can’t help you with the ironing…

    Ha!ha! Pining, I do remind you of your mom? My mom does this too. I guess, I got this vainness from her.
    Wahh, you wont help me with ironing? I guess, I’ll have to do it then. I have a week off left from work,maybe i’ll squeeze in some ironing time. But that will be it for the year. Unless I have to go to a party.

  2. Great list, leah! Unfortunately, I am so UNkikay, it’s not even funny. I should take the vanity test though, to see if I will fail. lol!

    Hi JMom, Unkikay – that’s a new word. lol. did you try the test? Oh well, its just a test. What’s important is you take care of yourself in some way or form be it through the food you eat, thru exercise or thru beauty products.

  3. hi leah! i’m happy may kapareho na akong vain. i’ve seen a lot of people who took this test but got really low scores. although mas mataas parin vanity score ko, ok narin because atleast i know that i am not alone.

    i don’t like makeups either, powder + body shop’s lip&cheek stain lang gamit ko. and i do have a facial routine too! 🙂 since i don’t have much time in the morning, wash and wear din ako sa hair ko.

    you might want to try Eulactol for your feet:
    my friend gave me some samples before and i love the result! mamula-mula ang sole ko and very smooth.

    Hi Gracita,
    hah!hah! Beauty conscious lang talaga. I’ll try your link and see if it is offered here.

  4. I like your list–doable hindi formidable! Wash and wear din ako. 🙂

    Hi Gypsy,
    Lahat naman yan, easy to do, we just have to find the time to do them.

  5. wow, that’s pretty long. so glad guys don’t have to go through that much.

    here’s my own vanity list:

    1. i shampoo my hair in the shower
    2. I wash my face in the shower
    3. I scrub my body in the shower
    4. I…er…repeat 1-3 at the end of the day

    i wonder what score i’ll have if i take that vanity test

    Hi Chris,
    Sounds like a good routine to win. and more so since it repeated. You smell really clean.

  6. hello leah,
    naku we have a lot of things in commom,yung no.1 lang yata hindi hehe ! tamad ako as in….. hilamos lang ng warm water ok na ako 🙂

    Hi Eden,
    No 1 is like a routine to me kaya I dont forget anymore, its like brushing your teeth. Dati, I used to be tamad too.

  7. ay dapat talaga may konting vanities din sa buhay para kahit pano naman di maagang malosyang, meron bang ayaw gumanda? hehehe

    Hi Marie,
    I agree, para nga hindi malosyang aagad. And yes, I want to be beautiful at all times.

  8. I’ve tried the quiz, I’m 83% daw naku sumobra na ata ako. kikay talaga mana sa mga cousins, hehe 🙂

    Naku Misyel, super kikay ka nga. Mana-mana nga ata yan. lol

  9. men are not known to be vain, right? or i am wrong? i have a moisturizer but i only use it whenever i felt that a pimple is slowly inching its way up on my face, i find it to be a very effective anti-pimple stuff. other than that, a shower is all i need. 😉 oh, i took the quiz, it says i am 54% vain. not bad. 😀

    Hi Zherwin,
    Good to know you at least use some kind of moisturizer, I try to convince my hubby to use it once in a while but he wouldn’t budge, so I do try to apply it on him when his skin really gets dry. It doesn’t matter whether your a guy or a girl. Taking care of the skin is a good thing.

  10. I tried doing this test , I got 34 %. Ang baba. Does that mean I don’t care about the way I look? =)
    I have to retake it again I guess LOL!

    Hi Gina,
    Not sure if this test really means anything or if it is even valid. I guess its more on how vain you really are and being less vain is a good thing.

  11. I have to work on my Kikay aspect too. According to the test, I’m 34%. Needs improvement. I do watch What Not to Wear too and try to follow the guidelines. I just love sensible clothes.

    Hi KK,
    Nice to know you pick up good guidelines at What not to wear as well. Naku, you are not that kikay nga. I’m sure, nothing beats taking care of your health the most like you do.

  12. ngek, ako yata ang last in class. im only 19% vain. but im lazy, that’s probably why, even taking care of myself, kinatatamaran pa.. but i do use moisturizers kasi kelangan.. i think ill have to improve in this aspect hehe

    Hi Analyse,
    naku, you are definitely not vain. Hmnn…,maybe youshould reateke the test after improving on some “aspects” as you say.

  13. My ex-wife is like that. Whenever we go to a mall she’d always look at the display windows not to look at the merchandise, but her own reflection. LOL 😀

    Have a great weekend, Leah.

    Hi snglguy,
    Most women are like that I guess. Enjoy your weeked too.

  14. Hi Leah! I love pedicures and flip flops too. I’ve been having my eyebrows threaded since college. That reminds me, I need it badly. My eyebrows have lost its sense of direction. haha!

    Happy weekend!

    Hi Rach,
    With threading you get a better shape. Ako rin, I need to have it done.

    Enjoy the weekend as well .

  15. Hi Leah! Wow, I love your list. Mukhang magkakasundo tayo sa vanity choices haha. I really think it’s important for women to pamper themselves once in a while. It’s not vanity, it’s self-love hehe.
    Me three on the eyebrows. I have mine threaded every 3 weeks or so.

  16. I think I’m so vain. But accdg to that site, I’m just 52% vain. 🙂
