This Week’s Acquisition: Hello, new satchel~

During the eve of Typhoon Pedring, or rather, the day before, I decided to go and take a trip to Greenhills. I personally find Greenhills so difficult to go to! It’s so inacessible for me who’s from Manila and is so tamad to take two rides to get there. BUT! For the love if Ichigo Shoes and bags, as well as rare finds that can only be found in Shoppesville, Theater Mall, as well as the Tiangge area (I swear there are just some things you cannot find in Divisoria. I tried...

Have you found Serenitea?

Recently, I’ve been trying to cool off on the coffee. I’ve had far too many sleepless nights, and an extra cup of coffee more than my usual one cup could make me lose some more valuable sleep time. However, I’m still on the lookout for some drinks, and a good place to hang out.

Then I found Serenitea.

Serenitea. Not your ordinary cup of tea.
Us, while waiting for our drinks.

Revlon Professional Weekend Makeover

Last weekend, I got lucky to be invited to a makeover at Revlon Professional. (Drama insert: I didn’t get the chance to go to Blogapalooza, an event I’ve been looking forward to ALL month. It was because I got called in to work on my day off. Boo-hoo. So, this is probably how the universe is making up to me for making me miss Blogapalooza :))

We were given three treatment options: Scalp Treatment + Hair Cut and Style, Color + Hair Treatment, and Color + Highlights and Style...

Review: The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Oil

I’ve been hearing and reading a lot about the miracle worker that is tea tree oil. The tea tree oil is an extract from the leaves of Melaleuca Alternafolia tree, and proves to be an effective antibacterial, antifungal, as well as antiviral. It’s all natural, and some folks prefer using this one instead of Benzoyl Peroxide, in response to acne.

I decided to grab a bottle of The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Oil last week, in a desperate attempt to stop my breakouts...

NOTD 09/12/2011 : Got Glitters?

Using BOBBIE Premium Nail Creme in Star Glaze. Topped with clear nail polish.

I admit, I got lazy with painting my nails recently, that’s why I settled for this nail polish. It has a very light translucent pink underneath all the glitters, which is great because it gives the glitters a kind of backdrop where they glitters would shine.It’s sold at 35php at supermarkets and department stores. These nail cremes are super affordable and very easy to find! <3

Uh oh, skin trouble + Recent Acquisitions: Etude, ELF, Watsons


As you’ve noticed, I’ve taken this semi-hiatus from doing FOTDs and practicing mainly to rest my skin from cosmetics use. I had a breakout recently (which needs no use of a photo for your imagination) from trying out products, and well, such is the life of a beauty junkie. You try some products, hoping that they will work on you, but it won’t always be the case. I’d really like to get back to practicing! Looking forward to doing that soon :)

Meanwhile, don’t forget to join my ongoing give...

This week’s acquisition: Printed T-strapped Wedges

I finally found the time to head over to Greenhills and visit Ichigo Shoes’s Shop.
Unboxing my first pair of shoes from Ichigo
Love <3
The T-strapped style has little appeal to me in the past. I don’t know what’s with the sudden change of heart and on a whim I chose this pair. It’s probably the prints. But now, I’m loving T-straps more.

The box even comes with shoe care instructions under the box lid. So helpful!
The SA told me that they will be stocking up new ...
