Colourpop♥


Hiyee!  I know it's been a while since my last entry.  Been so busy lately - dealing with the new set of auditors hired by our company.  The transition from old auditors to new ones is tedious... oh well I am not really sharing that.. haha... so let's go back to Colourpop.  Yes, you read it right... I am writing about make up.  I know I am not into make up, but finding the right one especially lippies and powder is a must for me.  I am quite contented with Clinique double pressed powder in Matte Honey but the journey in finding the right lipstick continues...  Not only finding the right color (I'm into nudes), but finding one that will not dry my lips.  The problem with some lipstick - they leave my lips dry and flaky.  I have tried Kylie in Candy K - it's okay (but not the kind of nude that I am looking for), and  have read many reviews that it's similar to Colourpop: and the later being less pricey than Kylie.  I wanted to buy Colourpop but it's only available online.  But honestly I am afraid to purchase make ups online since you can find all these "fake" make ups in Divisoria.  I might be paying a fake make up in the price of an authentic.

Since I am subscribed with email updates from Colourpop, I got a message that they are offering free international shipping for their anniversary.  So I said to myself why not try it out.  Fingers crossed that the goodies will arrive to the Philippines from USA. 

Last Monday, May 29 it arrived! (I'm excited to open the box, of course).  All are in good condition and complete. What did I get?

For the lippies : I bought a Lippie primer, Lippie stix creme in "I'm yours" and "Only you", Ultra satin lip in "Magic Wand".



Verdict: (5 ♥ being the highest)
  • Lippie Primer - Apply this before you put on your lipstick (so it'll last longer).  It's one of the bestsellers according to their site.  ♥♥♥♥.5
  • Lippie Creme - Pigmented, love it! Soft on lips... I love both but "Only you" is my fave so far!♥♥♥♥♥
  • Ultra Satin lip - Pigmented also... but too dry (for me).  but for those who are into matte lips this is the one for you. ♥♥♥♥.


I also bought these Super Shock Shadows and Pressed shadows - All of them : I love! ♥♥♥♥♥  The shadows I am looking for... creme shadows that you can apply with your fingers! :)

Now I am wanting more of these Colourpop cosmetics... I hope they will have another free international shipping promo soon.  Planning to buy Only you extras.. (*wink!)

Oh before I forget I got 2 mini ultra satin lippies free!


All in all -  it took 19 days... Total cash out : $30.99 + P112.00 (Philpost fee), so more or less P1,700.00+ not bad, because I bought the Kylie kit at P2,300.00.

How about you? Have you tried Colourpop?  What's your verdict?

Summer make up essentials♥

It's summer!  I don't often share anything about make up but these days i have a "thing" about make ups.. hahaha... I do wear light make up for work or when I go out with friends. Couple of years ago I am so engrossed with bronzers because of Jennifer Lopez.  I really wanted her look... Nude lips x bronze cheeks - i loved it!  Before I used L'oreal bronzer before - I bought it from Duty free, it's not available in any make up or department stores here in the Metro.  Now that bronzer is phased out, tried searching for a new one.. But the thing is - it's not that too important to me...back then (*wink)  Until I saw Kathryn Bernardo's boho look in ASAP.  


Went to Beauty bar at Eastwood City and found this Cargo Bronzer - swimmable water resistant bronzer that is available in shimmer and matte.  It is made in Canada and costs P1,350.00.  I bought the bronzer with shimmer because I wanted a little glow or shine.  




*I do wear my bronzer after a primer and powder at the apple of my cheeks, little on the forehead and jawline and a little dab on the nose. And finished the look with my Clinique Lipstick in Beige pop.

EDR♥

Exequiel Dumandan Robles, the man behind - the well-known real estate company here in the Philippines.  I know many things have been written about him, but I want to share my own.  I have known him since I was a kid: he was very down to earth and shy.  He seldom talks but will always give you a nice smile that would really brighten the room.  He was a man with a few words, but when he opens his mouth you will surely learn something from him.

Humble beginnings: He started at a young age to help in their small business (Buenmar Realty). When Lolo Tura (Buenaventura Robles) his father passed away he took over his post being the eldest.  He felt that it is his responsibility to ensure the future of his mom Lola Inggay (Dominga Dumandan-Robles) and his 7 siblings.

I admit that at first I have second thoughts of working at Sta.Lucia Realty.  It was him who asked my mom, because they badly needed an accounting graduate (that time) that will handle their Cost accounting section.  I am really hesitant (personal reasons) after a couple of deliberation with my mother, I decided to give it a try.  And after 24 years I am still with Sta.Lucia.  And he was one of the reasons why I am still here. :)



You will learn so much from him, he will guide, teach you the in and outs, pros and cons of business. He was really very hands-on. He goes to every project to check on the status of development himself, works from 9 to 5 and sometimes more than that.  He is really very hardworking that is why if he is your boss it's a shame if you will not be as hardworking and dedicated as him.  As a boss: he is very understanding and patient but most of all I admire his positivity.   He is very optimistic maybe that is one of the reasons why he is very successful.  

I wrote this for him to be an inspiration to every one.  Because he inspired me to work hard and be positive in life.  That whatever problems and obstacles we may encounter we will surely overcome it. And I would like to thank him for giving me an opportunity to grow in the field that I chose and for believing in me that I can do it.  I wish that the Lord will give you more blessings and good health for you to stay healthy so that you can help and inspire more people.

Plains & Prints : SS2017♥



Hello my loves!  Last February 1, Plains and Prints launched their "The Language of Fashion" Spring/Summer 2017 Collection.  Their SS 2017 collection consists of three sets the Amalfi, Siena and Lille. 

Amalfi Collection was inspired by the breathtaking coast at Amalfi a town in the province of Salerno in the region of Campania, Italy.

Siena Collection (Fun and Fancy Collection) was  inspired by Siena a city in Tuscany, Italy.  The historic center of Siena has been declared by UNESCO as a world heritage site.

For Plains and Prints : "Travel inspires fashion.  It is in places and destinations our creatives mostly get their inspirations..."  

Here are my picks for their newest collection:


This one piece off shoulder playsuit was the signature dress for their SS 2017 collection.  I am not really into off shoulder dresses or tops but we'll see... This is not yet available in-store and online but will probably give it a try once it becomes available.

Leonidas Culottes P1,698.00
Leonidas C/S dress P1,698.00
Leonidas Kimono P1,298.00
I am so in love with the Leonidas - the Gypsy inspired digital print is ♥
I have already bought the culottes and contemplating on getting the kimono and the dress... (*wink!) 

Latifa S/L dress P1,898.00
For this dress, I totally love the skirt's print, unfortunately it was a dress... not really a fan of crisscross details of the top.

Lazlo top
Latham pantsuit P2,098.00

My Starbucks Planner Collection♥

Hi planner lovers like me!  I have been meaning to share this for a long time, but really didn't find time to take photos of them...  I was spring cleaning my bedroom before the Chinese New Year: of course I need to rearrange and clean all the things in my book shelves...  I realized that it's the perfect time to take some photos of my Starbucks planner collection...


This was my very first Starbucks planner which started it all! Black leather planner and the pen is still intact.  Due to my excitement that time, I used this planner as a Recipe book.  I wrote all my favorite recipes from cakes, pastas, and of course the popular "puting embutido" which was passed on to me by my Lola Luming.  


Here is - what's inside the black leather planner cover...I really love this planner, the quality of the leather is superb, imagine this is 10 years old but it's still gorgeous.  And aside from the thick pages of the planner the page design was amazing!

After that I decided not to write on the succeeding planners... and it became my Christmas tradition. (that is to get a Starbucks planner every year) 

Starbucks planner tower
  
My this my planner collection for the past 10 years including my new 2016 Mermaid planner.♥ 
In 2015 I was lucky enough to get 2 : regular and the pocket size.. (wink!*)
