Just few hours to go and 2010 is over and I want to greet you guys a...


I'm sure you already have plans on what to do for yourself the new year, as what they call resolutions but whatever it is, I am wishing you a fun, blessed and fruitful new 365 days in your life! 2010 may have been a high and low year for me but I'm embracing all the things I have learned and will change to a better and happier person this 2011. I would like to thank you for being a part of my life this year. Your messages and comments really mean a lot to me. So many blessings and lessons to thank for. Hopefully, I had been a blessing to you too!

Always be an inspiration to others and if you're planning to use fireworks this midnight, just be safe okay!


Cheers to a New Year and a New Us for 2011!


Hello good vibes :)

xoxo,

They aren't the first social web browser to be released though, Flock for an instance, but I found this to be much easier, faster and organized to use. I am a Mozilla Firefox user and I am now a convert!

Mini Watsons Haul

2 Comments
I really want to do a review today but I don't have the extra time to do it. So I'll just post my Watsons haul last weekend. Mini as I am just restocking my bath stuff. And I love reading this kind of post. I find it therapeutic haha. How about you?

And here it is from upper left:


1. Myra Vita Firm at PhP 99
My current lotion is Myra Vita Quench (review on it soon) and I guess this is a new variant which as it claims can help tighten skin so I need to have it. Plus I badly need it right now to keep my ever present cellulite at bay. I'll report if it works!

2. L'oreal Total Repair 5 Shampoo and Conditioner at PhP 139 and Php189 respectively
Again, I am so in love with this product! These two are just backups in case I run out of it! If it will happen eeek ;)

3. Sunsilk Smooth and Manageable at PhP 89
This is a household shampoo and whenever I want to deeply cleanse my hair, I either use this or H&S. There's a free Creamsilk too. Who wouldn't love that? I think the promo is still ongoing so if you're a Sunsilk and Creamsilk fan too, go grab yours now!

4. L'oreal Total Repair 5 Deep Repairing Mask sachet at PhP 20
I lost the other one I bought last month so I repurchase! Love, love this line from L'oreal.

5. Lewis & Pearl Dewdrops Cologne at around PhP 30
If you like D&G Light Blue, then this is a good alternative which you can splash to your body anytime without the guilt! Just for the cheap price you can smell like your favorite perfume! My fave too.

6. Skin White PowerWhitening Facial Cleanser at PhP 39
Okay, this is just a random buy because I run out of my Clinique Clarifying Lotion and I don't know what toner to get. Hopefully, it will not cause any breakouts as I am still on the process of erasing pimple marks from the past month. Aaargh!

:D

And that was my mini haul, wish you had fun reading it as I am typing it. Let me know your current haul too. Have a happy Friday everyone! Just one day before the week ends, are you excited? ;)

Christmas at Starbucks Has Begun!

5 Comments
Can you feel the Christmas air? 'Coz I do! And it's that time once again when many people are going crazy to chug down caffeine just to collect stamps and have their much coveted Starbucks Planner. Mr. J and I already started with ours the other day. Little did we know that they're giving one free stamp to the first few customers and we're in! So 11 stamps to go!

My Hot Toffee Nut Latte (around PhP 150)
Chocolate Toffee Nut Loaf (PhP 45)


Starbucks Planner 2011
Stained Dark Wood Panels, Maroon Velvet Fabric and Cool Clean Stainless Steel


I promised myself not be ecstatic with this year's planner as I am last year when I got my first Sbux planner hahaha. But if ever we can finish the stamp card, it will be for Mr. J and we'll get the Silver one.



You need 17 stamps, 9 for Holiday Featured Beverages and 8 for either their Core Beverage or VIA Ready Brew! Promo is from November 3, 2010 to January 5, 2011. So if you haven't got the chance to enjoy these Christmas drinks, visit any Starbucks branch and get your stamp card too. My favorite is Hot Toffee Nut Latte which is the perfect blend for me of Hazelnut and Vanilla with sprinkle of Toffee bits over whipped cream! Good for these breezy nights that's feels Oh-so-Christmas! :)

Beauty Review: Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Body Scrub

10 Comments
I first saw Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Body Scrub on an advertorial page of Cosmo mag and got intrigued. Though I never really paid attention that much until I saw raves on it from blogs to beauty forums! So Watsons is the only way to go. :)

I went there and found two racks completely carrying this body scrub and thought... it must be really that good! I read the description since I am not really familiar with the title "Lulur." Everything went better when I turned the tub and saw the price, very light on the budget! And there it goes on my shopping basket.

Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Body Scrub
135 g PhP 80
Watsons

What is it?
Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Body Scrub is a beauty treatment inspired by a most luxurious Javanese ritual called Lulur. The ritual was originally intended for the bride-to-be in order to beautify, smoothen, and whiten her skin before her wedding day. Lulur originated from the royal palaces of Java, Indonesia and products inspired by this traditional treatment are still used by Indonesian women today.

The benefits of Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Body Scrub:
  • It gently exfoliates the skin and removes dead skin cells to soften the skin and give it a radiant glow.
  • Frequent usage reduces skin pigmentation and evens out skin tone by getting rid of dark patches, especially in areas prone to darkening such as the elbows, knees, armpits, and the area between the thighs.
  • It contains Vitamin E and Green Tea extract, powerful antioxidants that protect your skin from free radicals to keep it healthy and young-looking.
  • It also contains Squalene and Olive Oil that help maintain moisture on your skin.

How I use it?
I apply it directly onto dry skin, a handful for the whole right arm. I once used it on a damp or wet skin and the result isn't as good as when it is dry. Then I rinse it off with lots of water.


What I love about it?
  • The beads are very gentle so it doesn't leave any red marks after.
  • Effectively scrubs away dead skin cells because you can feel your skin feels softer and smoother.
  • The floral scent lingers even after you step out of the shower. You can sniff your arms and it smells like Sampaguita.
  • I can testify that it can whiten you gradually.
  • A bit moisturizing but I still apply lotion afterwards.
  • Leaves you feeling cleaner.
  • The smallest tub can have up to 4 uses for a whole body scrub.
  • Hypo-allergenic and dermatologist-tested.
  • Very affordable!

What I hate about it?
  • The scent could probably irritate other people because it could be strong for them.
  • It's exclusively available in Watsons.
  • But nevertheless, none for me!

Additional Tips
  • For hygienic purposes, please use a spatula (that's what I do) to scoop out the right amount you need.
  • The directions says use it daily but as with most scrubs overdoing it can irritate your skin. I use it twice a week concentrating to where I really need exfoliation like elbows and knees.
  • If you are after the whitening effect, please be patient! I used this for two months already and the effect is gradually and not dramatically. It may take longer for people with darker tone.
  • You can treat someone for a hand scrub without hurting your wallet! That's what I am doing with my Mom when we have free time. Instant Mom-and-daughter bonding time. :)

OVERALL
This a great product since it can scrub my dead skin cells effectively. Besides the price is not bad at all. I will definitely repurchase this, probably the bigger tub.


Have you tried it too? What can you say?
If you can also suggest other brands please let me know. I am in a hunt for good scrubs right now. 'Til next post! :D

CBTL's Halloween Treat


Just yell (really?) "Trick or Pomegranatreat!" from 7PM - 9PM on October 27 and a Regular Sized Pomegranate Frozen Swirl is waiting for you! Take note that one Swirl per person only.

Promo is available in Greenbelt, Trinoma, Alabang Town Center, Midtown, Four Seasons, Rockwell, Eastwood, Greenhills Promenade, Bonifacio High Street. Now adults can do trick or treat too! :)

Starbucks Facebook Fan Page Celebration


We have now reached more than 400,000 likes on our page! As a way for us to say thank you, we're treating you all to something yummy! Treat a friend to a Crème Brulee Macchiato (hot or iced) and we'll treat you to a second Crème Brulee Macchiato. All you need to do is say this line to our barista "I am a Starbucks Philippines Facebook Fan". This treat will run from Oct. 26 - 28, 2010. (Note: Crème Brulee Frappuccino™ Blended Coffee is not included in this offer)

I've tried this twice both Frappe and Iced and I find it very sweet, very caramelly. I still like the regular Caramel Macchiato. But Starbucks rarely do this kind of promo (at least that's what I remember) so grab the chance and bring your best bud from October 26 to 28!

Another update from the Green Siren...


Try our new breakfast sandwiches to go with your coffee. Or if you're really really hungry, why not try all 3! Hungarian Sausage, Egg and Cheese on Whole Wheat Ciabatta, Spanish Chorizo, Egg and Cheese on French Croissant, Tomato Mozzarella and Basil on Whole Wheat Foccacia.
Among the three, I've only seen and tried TMB from the branch I frequently go to and it costs PhP 105. This used to be on a Bagel. It's simple but filling. Try and pair it with hot coffee or maybe when you avail their Creme Brulee promo!

Starbucks Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/#!/StarbucksPhilippines

Yes, we are in for some yummy treats next week. Do let me know when you grab one!

Today is BDJ 2011 Fair and I might go. So see you guys there! It's my Kuya H's birthday too and I wish him the very best on his special day! God bless. :)

Have a happy Sunday everyone!

Krispy Skremes - Spooky Treats from Krispy Kreme

0 Comments
I asked Mr. J to buy Original Glazed for me but look what he got for me too... Krispy Skremes! It's this year's Halloween treat from Krispy Kreme. ;)

 
The SpiderWeb
The Crazy Pumpkin
The Skull with strawberry filling inside (my favorite)
The Halloween Sprinkles

It's the same as last year, just The Alien won't be part of it. Awww :( Each doughnut is worth PhP 42 and if you get it by the dozen it will cost you PhP 365. But since we have another dozen of Original Glazed our bill went to PhP 590. Yeah, we're KK addict!

Halloween isn't scary if it got to be this. Best to go with coffee then maybe watch a real scary flick.This limited offer is until October 31, 2010 only so grab some for you and the whole family!

Another Watsons Haul

5 Comments

I went to Watsons yesterday to refill my stash. Nothing much to purchase because I still have new things to try at home.

1. Marionnaud N 35 Eyeshadow Brush PhP 69.75
Made of synthetic fibers - angled to contour, accent and shape. It's also soft like the Marionnaud Blusher Brush. I haven't used it yet so I can't comment if it's that good. I heard good feedbacks nonetheless.

2. L'oreal Paris TR5 Deep Repairing Mask 15 mL PhP 19
1 Minute Mask - Deep repairing for strong and healthy hair. You know how much I love L'oreal TR5 (review here) but I don't have their mask yet. I bought just sachet to try and the price quite surprised me. Cheapo!

3. L'oreal Paris TR5 Shampoo 80 mL PhP 54
I'm running low on my fave shampoo and this is the only one left from this variant so I need to get it! This is their smallest size which is perfect for travelers and those who are on budget.

Btw, sachets for shampoo and conditioner will be available soon at PhP 4.50!

4. Nichido Multiple Stick in South Beach PhP 94
I got it at 50% off. Creamy peachy-pink with gold shimmer blush. Goes well with my skin tone but doesn't stay long. For its price, I guess it's worth it.

5. Fashion 21 Eyeliner in Black PhP 85
I'm planning to use this for making the eyes look chinita. Not for me but for my sister who will be Ms. Korea on her school's UN week. Is this a good one? Or do you have other recommendations? The other end is a smudge tool.

Further reviews on each soon. Happy Monday everyone. Let us all have that positive energy!

Saying Goodbye and Goodluck to Michele1218 of Youtube

0 Comments
Most of you would probably know Michele1218 of Youtube. She is a makeup Guru who is so wonderful and genuine. She's been up for two years now but sadly she's bidding Youtube goodbye. Yeah, it is really sad to know that she'll stop doing videos and teach or inform us of all these things. But I guess she had done it right. Whenever you feel you aren't happy with what you're doing, then stop. I am also noticing of what's going on now on makeup community on Youtube.

Here's her bitter-sweet goodbye to all of us.




To Michele:

So this is gonna be sad without you but thanks for what you had done. You taught us so many things. Doing videos and sharing your life means so much to me and everyone. Thanks for being so genuine and honest. Good thing you're still leaving your channel up. Goodluck to the new chapter in your life... and see ya later! Bye!

Pantene Mystery Shampoo Sample Pack

5 Comments
Just a quick post....


So I received this from the mail yesterday. Wasn't a mystery anymore since it came after it was revealed. I guess two months ago. I love the smell of this, it really stays the whole day. And I got their Hair Fall line, which is my favorite! Anyway, I find Sunsilk's promo before was packaged better. Notice Pantene is just wrap in a plastic... well compared to this. Not a big deal though. Thanks Pantene!

Am I the only one who got this late? Let me know if you got yours too ;)

And oh I would like to greet our second mothers out there a Happy World Teacher's Day! Yesterday my li'l sister's school had a treat for their teachers. I'm so proud of her because she dance not just one but on three presentations! Her third was the great finale doing a ballroom dance. But their Baby (aaargh.. Justin Bieber) number was grade schoolers fave! Haha. Our teachers deserves to be treated! You're working hard for us to learn not just skills but true values. Thank you very much!

'Til then... have a good day!

Not So Good Peri Peri Charcoal Grill Experience

2 Comments
Peri Peri Charcoal Chicken
Peri Peri Charcoal Chicken is a fast casual style restaurant that specializes in the world famous Peri Peri Chicken. It is uniquely delicious as we use a closely-guarded old Portuguese recipe , famous for its Peri Peri flavour.

Peri Peri is the name given to the “African bird's eye chili” which was discovered by Portuguese explorers in Africa. It is this fiery little spice which gives flavour and fire to our chicken that makes it so peri-licious.

Our chicken is cooked over charcoal wood burning grill and is trimmed of excess fat before basting in our peri marinades , so it is healthy too. You have option to heighten hotness and flavour – choose from lemon & garlic, mild, hot bastings.

When J and I had our first Peri Peri, we instantly get hooked on it and wanted our family to savour the experience too. So on my pre-birthday celebration last month we go out with J's brother, A, and with no hesitations entered their SM North Edsa Annex branch. Their 49ers Promo also attracted us where you'll get to have unlimited soup and drinks for every chicken meal order. That's dirt cheap. You are free to choose at the counter and serve yourself. There's a wide variety of drink options like soda, red and lemon iced tea and coffee. But of course when it is that cheap there is a drawback. Your only choice for soup is their watery Mushroom soup and not any of their specialty.


On our table...

Everyday Platter C PhP 195
1/4 Lemon & Garlic chicken, 2 pcs. Wild Wings, Corn & Carrots, Steamed rice and Gravy



For the two boys

Everyday Platter D PhP 195
1/4 Lemon & Garlic chicken, 2 pcs. Croquettes, Corn & Carrots, Steamed rice and Gravy


My order. Their Sour & Cream dip is good! 

Mushroom soup Part of PhP 49 promo


I get all the mushroom on their pot. Hihi. This is just Knorr mushroom soup diluted in lots of water!

Drinks Part of PhP 49 promo

Their red iced tea (no picture, sorry) is a winner for the two but I find it too sweet so I ended with Sprite.

Condiments provided for every table


As you can tell their price is very affordable at least 200 per head. Ambience is good too with all the wood and Portuguese-inspired walls. There's also a flat-screen TV where Shrek and Transformers 2 were constantly played with no audio.

And here comes the bad side of what I thought to be a wonderful experience...

I love spicy dishes so it's a no-brainer for me to choose what basting I want for my chicken. I asked the server for Hot and he told me that they run out of it. Unfortunately, we can only have Lemon & Garlic. I settled for it and just asked the server if they can add anything to make it a little bit spicier. He surprised me and my companions as he answered back "Eh, wala nga po di'ba" ("We don't have it, right?"). I wanted to shout back to him right then but I don't want to break our mood that time so I just smirked at what he did. Boo ^_-

After less than five minutes, our orders came. We were happy that our food were served really fast but in the back of our minds we're thinking, are these done right? Our suspections came true when the chickens were half-cooked! I immediately returned it to their manager and they politely asked to replace our meal. Then as you could guess, they cooked it again to the point of a burnt chicken.

From that day, we swear to never go back there again!!!

L'oreal Total Repair 5 Night Essence Review

2 Comments
Hi everyone! I AM BACK! I miss blogging and I got a bunch of products to review so wish me luck. Let me start with hair care. If there's one thing I am really obsessed about, you guess... it's hair care products. I love it more than skin care, makeup and even with bags or shoes. Most of my money are spent on it. Me bad ;) But I guess for a gal like me who is not born with soft and straight locks I must really take care of my hair to make it more, err presentable. Thank goodness that my hair is taken care by L'oreal for a year now and I'm very loyal.

Total Repair 5 is L'oreal's Elseve newest line though I think they already had it before. Same key ingredient, just renamed and repackaged. I got its whole line except for deep treatment (I still have my L'oreal Re-Nutrition mask). I find this funny because I'll first talk about the night essence before the shampoo and conditioner. Will do a post on it too, tihee! Enough with the blah blah...

Total Repair 5: 5 Problems, 1 Solution

L'oreal Paris Total Repair 5 combats the 5 signs of damaged hair:
Breakable, Dry, Dull, Coarse, Hair Split-Ends

Description:
The 1st total reparation of the 5 signs of damaged hair with Cement-Ceramide, L'oreal's exclusive active ingredient, that works similarly to natural hair cement, Ceramide. It keeps hair strong and healthy by filling in cracks for strengthened and resilient hair and sealing hair scales for replenished moisture and ultra-smooth and ultra-shiny hair surface. Split-ends are prevented.

Proven Results: Day after day, combat the 5 signs of damaged hair with 1 solution to become 1. Stronger 2. Nourished 3. Shinier 4. Smoother 5. Less Split Ends. Feel your hair repaired without heaviness overnight from the 5 signs of hair damage the next morning!

I didn't get the change I want the first morning but the no heaviness feel is true. It doesn't even leave any residue on my pillow. After a month of using it, my hair feels softer and manageable. It behaves properly! Though it still lacks on some shine and a little more help with the split-ends.

One pump is enough for my long hair

Retails at PhP 355 for a 150 ml bottle, it will definitely last with me for a long time making it a good investment. You're supposed to apply 1-2 pumps while you sleep. I use it mostly on daytime to towel-dried hair. It makes my hair styling easier. The smell is nice, very feminine. Non-greasy and has a creamy consistency that melts easily when rubbed between palms.


You see the pump has a big opening which may be a con to others. I'm cool with it. Just gives enough with every pump to coat my long hair. One thing I am afraid is product build-up. So what I do is use it twice a week then rest my hair. If not, my hair will weigh down easily. Who likes that, right?

All in all, the product is great. I'll definitely add it to my faves from L'oreal. What's best is the change is noticeable. Mom and J compliments my hair always. So it gets my 100% approval!

Available at Watsons, Landmark and other leading supermarkets and drugstores.

Still on LSS

4 Comments
Just recently found this cool..or I say hot video of my fave song ATM "Love The Way you Lie." It's from Eminem featuring Rihanna.



Eminem is still the best rapper! He rocks, so just awesome! Plus it's so hot that Megan Fox is burning here. ^_^ She's paired with Charlie of Lost. Love the idea of using fire in the video.

Go watch it. I'm still having an LSS.

That’s alright because i love the way you lie...

FOOD: Pancake House

4 Comments
Pancake House isn't new to our palate. We had it for a week when we had a medical event in Medical City, Ortigas. It was the nearest restaurant to our event venue thus we rented it as our HQ. We were hooked by then!

Last Saturday we suddenly missed it and decided to dine in there. But now we're in their Trinoma branch. We got there dinner time around 630 PM and it was full of family and couples dating. Good thing there's still a table left for us and we hurriedly sat down.

We already knew what to order as I can still remember their whole food choices but as they gave us their menu we were also handed with the Yogurt menu in which they called their version of fro-yo as Gurts and their Kids menu. Good thing I brought my li'l sister with us because they are introducing their newest offering for the kids. They even got balloons with "Welcome home, Kids" sign. Plus kids even got a surprise gift, a puppet made out of paper from Papemelroti. Really nice of them.

Here we are while waiting for our orders. What better way to do while waiting? Camwhoring :) I am sharing some of it. My sis was also offered an activity sheet and a new box of crayons to play around.

Me with my sis

Mylalabs :)
Notice our cheeks? We really are getting bigger with all these pig-outs.

Their kitchen and staff

On Our Table

Pork Vienna PhP 208
Breaded lean pork, finely sliced, served with rice and coleslaw

My man's order. Three slices of pork, still in big servings. One cup of rice is not enough. The coleslaw is just ordinary.

Special Salisbury Steak PhP 208
Premium 1/3 lb salisbury steak topped with that creamy mushroom gravy and bacon bits

This is my order and I'm going to tell you to pass this one. It was so damn salty!! Ang ALAT sobra! I didn't finish it my taste buds just gave up. Though it is juicy but you won't really get even to half of it. It's a House Specialty, btw. But I can't seem to find the special part. I know I should just ordered my fave, Adobo Sulipan.

Mini Corn Dog PhP 105
Hotdogs coated in batter served with french fries and Western dressing

It's for my sis and it's part of their new Kid's menu. Three Tender Juicy regular hotdogs in half. That's it. Okay this is not healthy but kids are really attracted to hotdog. I can't stop her ordering it. Fries and dressing is commendable.

Bottomless Iced Tea PhP 63

Mocha Milk Shake PhP 134
A classic family favorite blend of mocha and chocolate, rich and indulgent

Nothing extra ordinary. Tasted like Milo with the milk shake thickness. Better if they served it a little bit colder.

Their staff are really attentive when called and specially when refilling our iced tea. But you need to follow-up what you said more than once! Other requests like table napkin or glass of ice took so long. The corn dogs are the last to be served after the kid waited for more than 30 minutes. To think it was just a hotdog right. I guess Medical City's branch is a whole lot better and cleaner. Nonetheless, it filled our tummies that night!

An 8% service charge was already included on our bill. They also offer delivery and in-store reservation.

Avon Ultra Moisture Rich Lipstick in Lava Love

2 Comments
I love Avon to bits. From their cosmetics to shampoos to intimate apparels, I have them. When I started to love makeup, my kit includes their lipstick and blushes. One look on their brochure and I am sold. Felt like scouring the mall for finds but just by reading. :) I even applied as an Avon dealer just to get 25% slash on their prices instead of buying from another dealer. Haha. Greedy much?

So my recent purchase from them is Avon Ultra Moisture Rich Lipstick in Lava Love. A rich, bright, glossy, "shouting" kind of red. Avon describe it as...


"24-hour moisture formula includes Allaintoin, Vitamins A, C and E and Jojoba Gel. Contains SPF 15 to help protect lips from sun damage."




Love:
  • Doesn't feel dry on the lips
  • Has rich, vivid color
  • Glides on smoothly
  • Brightens my face
  • Can be bought to almost everywhere as we all know there are a lot of Avon dealers
  • Has a lot of color options
  • VERY affordable

Bleeh:
  • Staying power is same as most average lipstick. It easily goes off after you eat something.
  • Not sure if I can pull this everyday.
  • Of course, it always needs a lip liner to go with it or else it will bleed.

Will I repurchase?
Yes, definitely. But I'll try other shades first.

Tip:
Always spot for Avon promos where they cut off prices and give you a very, very big discount. I got this for just PhP 199 from PhP 375. See? It's actually their lowest price this year.

Go to you nearest Avon dealer now and find a good budget buy too!
