Review: My NAILS.glow experience

Hi lovelies~
Here's another review from yours truly but this time it's a bit different. I'll be reviewing a nails and spa salon named, NAILS.glow. I've been wanting to go here since their branch in Zapote opened as it is just right in front of our subdivision but I never did find the time to do so. One day, my mom decided to give them a try and immediately raved to me about their super nice services and staffs so I told her that I'll come with her on her next visit which was last monday.

Review: Purederm Grape Yogurt Pack and Moisturizing Cucumber Pack

Hi my dear lovelies! 
Here's another one of my reviews:) This time I'll be reviewing Purederm's Grape Yogurt Pack and Moisturizing Cucumber Pack. I've been on a roll trying to find the ideal facial mask so I wanted to try every kind of masks that I can get my hands on. I was browsing through Watsons a while back and got intrigue by Purederm's Wash-off type massage mask. I decided to buy it since it's super affordable.

KL-SG Trip: Conquering the Twin Towers

Hey lovelies! Here's the first post of my Malaysia-Singapore trip <3

I’ve loved travelling ever since I can remember.  I’ll definitely go backpacking without any itineraries or plans at all, just going with the flow someday. For the meantime though, let’s just stick with the conventional way of travelling. Once a year, my family goes on a major vacation. This year is a bit special because this will be our first out-of-the-country trip  <3 Originally our plan was Hong Kong-Macau but some unexpected things came up so we opted for a Malaysia-Singapore trip instead.

I love reading haul post from you guys so I would love to share my hauls and hope that you like it too. So here it is, let's start off with cosmetics and skincare products.

Guestpost: Innovation and Quality reflect the reputation of D&G Watches

You may have notice my lack of posts this past few weeks, that is due to me having lots of quizzes and final exams to take. I'm graduating this October so school works are really piling up for me. One night, I was checking my mails and found a request from Sarita if she can guestpost on my blog. I happily obliged since I wasn't able to blog about anything these past weeks so here it is! ENJOY~

To be honest a watch isn't something I've ever really considered wearing. From a young age I've always struggled to put one on - and if I have I'm always the type of person to accidentally leave it somewhere - a result which brought me to the conclusion that watches are a better option for other people. With so many options on the market it's hard to choose which one is the right on for you, but I figure that quality, reputation and style are perhaps three of the best markers you can have - and with D&G watches you can easily combine these three elements into one design.

Food: PB Co. (Peanut Butter Company)

Hey lovelies~ Another yummy food adventure of mine :)
I blogged about me watching a basketball game and cheering for my university here, after the game a whole lot of my classmates were hungry so we decided to eat at the mall beside the arena. I’ve heard about this restaurant from a very close friend and I’m quite curious since he said that they serve every food with peanut butter, hence the name Peanut Butter Company.

Review: Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Mauvey and Off Beat Pink

Hey lovelies~ 
I prepared another review for you guys :)
For the longest time now I own only one lipstick which is my Miners moisture effect in Moulin Rouge (review here) I know I know hahaha, so I bought these babies because I've heard so many wonderful things about it and wanted to try it out myself. The Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Mauvey and Off beat Pink are my first neutral and pink shade lipstick and I must say I do like them a lot!

Skincare: The CTM Routine (Guest post at TBI)

Hey lovelies! So first off, I want to introduce you to a new tag which is Skincare. We all know how important it is to take care of our skin. All those make up will just go to waste if you don't take very good care of your skin :)

So for the first post in this tag, it's something very special. I did my very first guest post at TBI (Them Blog Ideas) check them out here. Which is the very basic yet important type of skincare, The CTM routine.

"All those beauty products in your drawer will be nothing without a good skincare routine especially on the face.  Skin is one of the most delicate parts of your body and unfortunately not everyone is blessed with a good skin so it is very important to take good care of it. Some people often took for granted this very simple routine, I know I do, especially when feeling tired and lazy.  CTM stands for Cleansing, Toning, and Moisturizing. This routine is an essential for all skin type."

Want to read more?
 head on here for the full post! Don't forget to show some love and leave a comment<3

Oh and a little information about Them Blog Ideas: 

"We want to unite bloggers who write about lifestyle, beauty, health, fashion, travel, inspirational things, etc."
They interview different bloggers and also feature one blog for their #Mondaypick which I think is a great way to get to know your fellow beauty bloggers. Emma from Life, Style, and Beauty and Ina from Limes and Smiles run this blog so go and check them out also :)

Life: Cheerleader!

No, I didn’t wear a fluffy skirt and carry pompoms. I did cheer though for my University during their game against another school in the UAAP season 75 basketball league. For those who didn’t know basketball here in the Philippines is like Football in the U.S. It’s big! UAAP is a sports fest catering to the top Universities here in the Philippines. My university is a participant in this fest, we’re known as the UST Growling Tigers *rawr*.

Review: A'pieu Nature Easy Eyebrow Pencil #03

Hello lovelies~ I have another great product for review here :)
I bought this last week because I wanted to define my eyebrows as they are quite thin. I never really give any attention to my eyebrows before but a friend got really annoyed with my unruly brows and decided to thread it, now I see the difference. It made my eyes appear brighter. So I decided to buy this product in an attempt to maintain a define eyebrows.

Review: 4U2 dreamGirl Faith BB Cream

Hey lovelies~
A few weeks ago, I reviewed my first 4U2 product which is the BB powder here. I bought this BB cream together with the powder at Watsons.  I was wowed by the BB powder let’s see if this product is up to par with the first 4U2 product that I’ve reviewed.

Packaging, as always, is too cute for its own good and it’s in pink because it’s part of the Love Pink line.  Product claims that it is suitable for all skin types. Wanna Blemish-Free Complexion? Have faith in this One Stop Make Up Base, Foundation, and Powder. Long Lasting Protection, Soothing, and Moisturising. Be a dreamGirl, as written on the packaging. Let’s see if it’s true.

NOTD#4: Metallic Glam

Hey lovelies~

I haven't posted an NOTD in almost a month! Ack! haha Sucks when school's taking up all your time but no worries, I manage to do my nails this week and I decided that it's going to be metallic :) I have this two Sassy nail polishes lying around, I never get to use it because I bought it by mistake. I didn't see the label where it says that it has a nail art brush.

Sassy Nail Polishes in Metallic Pink and Metallic Violet.

Newbie: Putting on Falsies

Hey lovelies~
How are you?
So last week I finally bought my first set of fake eyelashes. I always thought that they're only for Make up artist and professional model but I still wanted to give it a shot. I bought this falsies and adhesive to play and practice with.

Review: 4U2 dreamGirl Lovelight BB Powder SPF 15 PA++

I have an oily face so I need to have a pressed powder on hand. I was looking around Watsons a week back and I saw this cute little packaging and I remembered reading a review about this product. I checked it out and was quite disappointed that it's only available in shade #3 which is a bit dark for my skin tone but when I looked around the whole rack of 4U2 cosmetics there at the right most part was another compact powder I reached for it and found it in shade #2. I immediately grabbed it along with the BB cream and paid for it coz I heard this BB powder is always out of stock >.<

Food: BonChon Chicken

Hello lovelies~ Another new post from me and this time it's about something we all love! FOOD <3 So last week, 2 of my friends celebrated their birthday and they decided to do it at the same time. So one big birthday bash is in order. Woot! They treated all 11 of us to BonChon Chicken. At first we wanted to do at the branch in our school (Yes, there is BonChon inside our university.) but it's too crowded because it is newly open so we decided to go to the nearest mall with a BonChon branch.

We decided to meet at around lunch time since our class is not until 5:00pm so we'll have lots of time to bond and eat. We have always been a big group of friends though. There's fourteen of us to be exact. A strange mix of personality but we get along really well, some more than the others.

Review: Glam Works Make Up Remover and Cleanser

Hey there my lovelies,
New review from me to you hehehe :) 

I’ve been using baby oil to remove my make up for a while now, I thought that it’s high time to buy a make up remover but I don’t like the oil base type so the easiest solution? Make-up Wipes! I bought these at Watsons at a very affordable price 49php for 20 sheets. Each pack carry 10 sheets and since it’s in buy 1 take 1 promo, I got 20 sheets. Isn’t that a sweet deal?

Review: Beauty Buffet Green Tea & Grape Seed Facial Mask

Hey lovelies, how’ve you been all doing?

I grabbed this facial mask along with other two beauty buffet facial mask variant during my recent visit to Watsons. What drew me first towards them is the packaging, it’s sooooo cute. I can’t resist so I bought three and I’m planning to buy the other variance that I hadn’t tried yet as they are really affordable.  Look at the packaging isn’t it cute?

I was too excited when I used this that I forgot to take a picture before I opened it hehehe.  Ah, it’s cute right? The mask itself is transparent unlike the usual mask that is color white. It has 23ML of essence each pack. The pack says that it is made in Taiwan.

Review: Glam Works Nose Pore Strips

Hello lovelies~

Another review! 
Blackheads is one of the main facial problems of every individual. Even my dad is concern about his blackheads (This just gave me an idea of suggesting this product to him LOL). It can be removed by either going to the dermatologist to have a facial treatment which is quite expensive and not to mention a bit painful or you can use one of these pore strips.

Review: Watsons Moisturising Facial Mask with Cucumber Extract

Hello lovelies, how are you?

It's been raining for almost a week here but thank God, the sun finally came out today. This week is supposedly my exam week so I've been studying non-stop but since the weather is very bad, my university decided to move it until next week. The rain and the studying pretty much kept me up all night which led to huge eyebags and bad skin>.< so I decided to use Watsons Moisturising Facial Mask with Cucumber extract that I bought at the start of the week.

As written on the back of the mask, "This specially formulated mask contains cucumber extract and natural collagen nutrients to tighten your skin and improve skin elasticity. Leaves your skin firmer and more supple"

Life: Surprises + Mini Haul

Hi lovelies~
So as I said in my previous blog post it's the week of my exams, me and my close friend who happens to be my classmate also decided to study at Starbucks since our university is quite far from our house (about more than an hour ). We were probably on the third hour of our studying when suddenly the SB crew called our names and gave us this two treats.

Review: My Starter Brush Set

Hello lovelies~ How are you?

Last week my eyeshadow brush gave up on me so I decided to officially buy a Make-up brush set which I’ve been putting on hold for about two months now.  I was browsing the net for a good yet affordable brushes because it’s my first brush set I don’t want to splurge on it.

 I stumbled upon eazyfashion and browsed through their cosmetics section and I found this Cerro Qreen 7pc brush set in purple. The price is also very affordable 390php/USD. Before I purchase it, I thought the price is good but is the quality up to par? So I search for reviews about it and found nothing but good ones. I decided to purchase it, sent my order form online. I received my confirmation and sent my payment the next day. They shipped it out last Saturday and I got it yesterday. Even though there’s a storm here, there was no delay whatsoever.

Here it is:

The weather though is rainy, I think another storm is coming soon.

NOTD#2: Etude House Green Dream of Mind

There's no class today at my university so I decided to paint my nails :) *Yay* I used Etude House Green Dream of Mind. It's part of their new nail polish line named "Look at my Cotton Candy Nails". The line has 10 colors with cute and pretty sounding names like Cupcakes filled with cream for the white shade, Dancing Ballet Shoes for the pink shade and Balloon caught in the Sky for the blue shade etc. Sounds pretty right?
Looks pretty too~

Random: Super Series

I'm not particularly into American series, I'm more into asian ones since I love romance, drama, and the likes. The only series that I followed before is Grey's Anatomy since it was my frustration to be a doctor but alas my fear of corpse and blood hindered me:) Since a favorite Asian drama was finished, it was Rooftop Prince btw, I decided to venture into the realms of the west.

I was bored one sunday afternoon and decided to rid my laptop of files that I have no use of, when suddenly I came across a folder that was copied from a close friend around 6 months ago. It was the Season 1 of Once Upon A Time. I was like "What the hell, nothing better to do so I'm watching this" and voila! I was hooked! So I finished it and wanted more, I watch a few more series after that and loved it! I call them my super series since they save me from boredom every sunday. Lame, I know :) Anyways, here is the list of my Super Series and why I love them:

Review: Dove Nutri-Oil Serum

Summer made my hair really really dry so I was whining to a friend once about my dry hair and she recommended to me Dove nutri oil serum along with two other dove products but that is for another review :) So I decided to give it a try.

May thingies :)

May was a busy month for me because of my On-The-Job training but I learned a lot and enjoyed it but of course I also did a lot of shopping *yay* here is my May haul:

Life: Changes. . .

Lately, I've been so much into cosmetics well blame my OJT experience. The company I worked for required  minimum make up of blush on, lipstick, and eyeshadow. So all in all I don't have choice but to wear make up and before I knew it, I was addicted. >.< I've been in love with nail polish for two years now and that haven't change.

I was thinking of making this a make up review blog since during the course of me looking for the make-ups that I needed, those review blogs that I've been to helped me a lot and I want to do that too.

Plus I do have an on-going book challenge hahaha I challenged myself okay? because I wanted to get back my bookworm self. The challenge is "21 for 2012". Yep, I need to read 21 books this year, why 21? because it's my age! LOL hahaha The title and challenge was adapted from a friend. It's June and right now I'm only on my 9th book. I hope I finished it and I might do a book review here too.

So that's probably it for now, I'm not a pro or anything at both make up and book reviews but I'll do my best!

Life: After a year...

I can't believe I haven't updated my blog for almost a year now >.< So many things have happened during that 1 year.

 How to start with my updates? Probably the most major change that I've went through is that I got a job and got a feel of what the world outside of school is like. It was quite hard and frustrating at times but I really did enjoyed that worthwhile experience and it's paid well too! :))) After five weeks *yay* I've got the certificate and I can add the credential to my resume <3 I'll get the paycheck soon too :) WOOT Enjoyed and got paid, I loved fruitful and productive summer days~

                                          The certificate, after five weeks. Ah it feels so good :)
