Good things are making a comeback this September.

One more day, and the start of the -ber months will be here! I can’t believe time flew so fast, and it’s already September tomorrow. Now while that also marks the start of the preparation for Christmas festivities here in the Philippines, I have other cooler and much more immediate events to be giddy about :D
First, the season 3 TV premiere of the Vampire Diaries on September 15, Thursday.
The third season will pick up from where the second season left off, with the primary dilemma being Kla...

Celeteque launches DermoScience

Last Friday, I got invited to attend Celeteque’s launch of their newest product line, DermoScience at SM Makati. Despite the bad weather, I tried my best to get there.

I arrived at the event late, because of Friday traffic and continuous showering =_= Which explains why I wasn’t able to take so much photos of the event.

Desserts: Cara Mia!

Fact: I can’t stand temperature extremes.

I can’t eat ice cream that’s like freezing, or coffee that’s hot. I cool my coffee to warm level, and melt my ice cream till it’s soft. I’m weird like that. *shrugs*

Fact # 2: For me, a complete meal has to have dessert. Else I won’t feel full.

A few weeks ago, we decided to try out this place at Robinsons Place Ermita called Cara Mia, which is Italian for “My Dear”. We’re always passing hat place, and we haven’t tried eating desserts there before.

NOTD 08/26/2011

As some of you may know, I’m a nurse by profession, and I’m currently employed in a tertiary hospital in Manila. And yes, nurses are NOT allowed to wear nail polish. I don’t really know the exact conditions, whether it’s absolutely contraindicated to wear nail polish, or allowed but with limitations on the color or shades to be used. Ergo, this is the best color I could choose for myself.

I’m actually doing this because I have two days off (yay!) followed by three days with work (That’s Sunda...

Still spending my weeknights chilling over at Caffeina, Adriatico Manila

Reading Japanese Fashion Magazines over my favorite Caramel Toasted Mallows

Thursday Dinner with family. This is our thanksgiving dinner for finally having internet connection after 2 months. Up to this day, I still cannot believe that I did not die from the lack of internet connection. It’s like oxygen to me :)) and the frequent trips to Caffeina felt like gasps of breaths.

Then there were breakfasts like this — compo...

Break muna sa makeup and reviews. Today I want to share with you my shopping experience at The French Baker, Robinsons Place Ermita.

I live just around Rob, so sometimes, I get to stay past eight and I see this people lining up over at French Baker. The first time I witnessed this, it really got me curious.

✩ Review: Geo 15 mm Queen Gray WTA15 Circle Lens
