Makeup Affair and Product Shelf Life
Hi everyone!!! I hope you’re enjoying your day! :) Most of you probably don’t know yet but I love makeup (I’m such a noob on applying them properly though, but that’s for another entry haha). Around my high school year, I bought this huge makeup set from Watsons just because I was a curious kid. It was inexpensive too at around Php 700 which already included everything I...

I want to share my new discovery to everyone! Did you know that Dunkin’ Dounts recently made their donuts much bigger?! AS IN BIIIIIIG! They announced it before pa but it’s only today that I get to see it. Now I...
Hello! I know, I know Holy Week should be all about reflecting and all that. But I couldn’t resist not going online (and I know you do too, how else would you be reading this?). But anyhow, this haul entry has been way looong overdue. It’s been almost 2 weeks since I got them (read here). My bad :P Here we go… HA! I got you! These are just teasers though. I figured I will...
Stripes and Colors
Summer is definitely bursting with so much color and fun! These spring/summer 2011 campaigns could attest to that. Though this trend is already in full blossom with so many celebrities and bloggers alike sporting this look, I still want to share with you the campaigns from Jil Sander, Gucci and Prada (if you haven’t seen ‘em yet)! This is not to break the bank, but is merely for...
Spotted: Trilogy Boutique & Canteen
Have you guys heard of the Trilogy boutique? They sell awesome stuff from apparels to bags to accessories. All in one store! I’ve liked their Facebook fan page a long time ago and I just recently saw their new collection. I just thought it would be cool to share it here too! I personally love the sunglasses and bags! :) I also included the map. Happy shopping!!! ...

Green and brown? Look who’s like a walking tree! Haha. Literally just snagged these off my closet. Meehh. Hot + Summer don’t mesh with me these days. Lazy days ahead for sure. And dressing up is not exempted. (Got to think florals and skirts and dresses and beach and sand and surf aannnd well you get the picture…) Excuse my tired face LOL! Because I was indeed tired that...
Splash of Color
Trainers to Wedges
Helloooooo! Meet my new guilty pleasure —- wedges from Macy’s. Believe it or not it was not in my plan to buy this pair. I was actually on a hunt for the perfect trainers to jumpstart my once-active jogging track. But obviously, it has gone kaput. Blehh. Me and my impulsiveness. Buy hey, I did try looking for trainers. I actually went to two stores (Toby’s and Adidas) but sadly...
Review: First Bobbie Nail Polish
Can I just say I’m soooo in love with my new nail polish? No, it’s not OPI nor Chanel. It’s just, you know, a local supermarket-bought brand that I can afford. HAHA Meet Bobbie, my new love. As you can see he’s part of the HOT collection. Aside from the hot label this bottle claims, I was also curious with how this will fair on my nails. You see I never have any green...
Tags and Awards
Hi everyone! Forgetful me wasn’t able to write which ukay we went to on the “An Afternoon of Ukay Shopping” entry. To those of you who asked, it was in Broadway Centrum, QC. Just message me away for more inquiries (hazelnot AT yahoo DOT com). I also got positive feedbacks on the Nichido cheek mousse review I did. I’m planning on reviewing more makeups and beauty products so...
Review: Nichido Cheek Mousse
This entry is way long overdue. Kats of burningskyy.blogspot.com asked me to do a review of the Nichido Cheek Mousse, which I showed on my Watsons haul (in this entry). Naturally, I got excited when I saw someone requested that I do a review. It gives my blog entry a purpose of some sort. HAHA But then again, I’m no make-up expert so I kind of put this entry on hold. Bear with me ladies as...
An Afternoon Of Ukay Shopping
Hi everyone! First of all, thank you for the great feedbacks on my first DIY entry! Someone even requested that I do a series of DIY entries. Hmmm I’ll think about that. :) Anyway, have you gone ukay shopping before? Or thrifting? Lucky for me I have one near my home! Mitch of Beautifulloft arranged an afternoon of ukay shopping today for us along with Aya (of Ayanagrace) and Ann (of...
Simple DIY Shirt
HELLO! Summer is definitely cold this year! Hmmm. Did some closet cleaning awhile ago and found a shirt I used to design years ago. It’s already old and stained so I thought why not make something out of this? And so I did. I turned the roundneck shirt into a v-neck one and trimmed the sleeves. Viola… new look! I want to share to you this simple DIY I did. 1. Find an old shirt,...
On Animal Cruelty
Whilst browsing through my dashboard awhile ago, I stopped and stared at this cute photo of bunnies above. But upon reading what was written underneath the picture, my smile lopsided into a frown. Here’s what the text said… This is a picture of an Animal Testing Facility. The reason they use rabbits for animal testing is because they are the only animal who can not flush chemicals...
This Dress Is So Fly! I Can Fly!
Can you tell I enjoyed (very much) posing with this dress? Heehee! :) I did say I was going out of town over the weekend. Stayed overnight at Tagaytay (Taal Vista Hotel) after going to Batangas. And it was where these photos were taken. (Dress: Apartment 8 | Sandals: Market! Market! | Shades: Forever21 | Fedora Hat: Cocomo Clothing) More photos after the jump!
Bloggers Meetup Round 1
As I’ve mentioned in my previous entry, I recently went to a bloggers meetup. So what exactly is that, huh? It’s basically what the name suggests — you meet up with bloggers… live and in flesh! It was my first experience of this kind actually. So I was both anxious and excited! Heehee :) If I’m not mistaken it was Mitch and Ann who initiated the meetup. I was...
Ready, Set... Go!
Look at my new (and one and only… so far :P) fedora hat! It was a lucky find over at Greenhills and I was really just there to accompany my sister awhile ago. But when my eyes fell upon it and my hands touched it, I knew I couldn’t put it down. So I went home Php 200 poorer. Not bad, eh? It’s also perfect for my Batangas trip tomorrow. :) The name of the store is quite funny...
