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 ...

An Intimate Afternoon with Lourd Ramos, Smashbox, and Beauty Bar

Last August 31, Beauty Bar’s Bella Trebelle posted on her facebook account that they are giving five lucky ladies a chance to enjoy a makeover, care of Smashbox’s Chief Makeup Artist, Lourd Ramos, and a photoshoot from pro photographer Ken Go. Well, I happen to be one of those lucky girls :)

I made my way to Rockwell Powerplant Mall’s Beauty Bar, and was overwhelmed by the makeup line that Smashbox has to offer.

When I got to Beauty Bar, I found that the makeover session has already star...

Have you received a suspension email from "support@twitter.com"?

Last week, I got this email from a certain support@twitter.com. It was in my Inbox, which means it was not considered as spam. The email read:

This totally shook me, because it’s actually true that I follow a huge number of people not proportional to the number of my followers. Of course, I’m not doing it to be annoying on purpose, and I have really never heard of being suspended for following accounts of people you really want to follow. When has that been such a crime??

I immediately checked ...

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...

Random Snapshots — August 3rd Week

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...

The French Baker Closing Hour Sale — Breads at Half Price

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. I realized that this was because during closing hour, or starting at 9:00 PM, The French Baker sells their left-over breads at half price!

This is amazing for two reasons:
