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

Hello!

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 ...

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 ...

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...
