Hail to the HAUL!

This is my first haul post ever! So, last Saturday, my mom and I went to BF, Paranaque to have her Thai massage. I accompanied her because she told me that there is a Korean grocery store nearby. Being a KPOP fanatic that I am, I immediately went to the store upon parking. The sales attendant is so nice and helpful. She would answer all my queries for I can't understand Korean myself. I ended up buying cool Korean snacks, instant noodles and magic towel ( I saw it at saytiocoartillero's blog) .
The snacks are surprisingly good! Especially the ice-cream sticks! You can get the ice-creams for four pieces at Php 100! Cool right? I do not have a picture for I finished mine up. It soo yummy :)

Here are magic towels that I am talking about. Looks like aspirins right?LOL. When you soak them in water, it magically transforms into a wet towels! You can check out saytiocoartillero's video using this product. It's soo amazing I tell ya. For this pack, it costs 30 pesos. You can also get them at a pack of 50 and so on.

After that, we went to Good Shepherds Bazaar formerly known as Ruins.

I bought this one for 10 pesos! cool right?

This one too is ten pesos! and it comes with 4 pairs of hoop earrings.

Cute wedge right? this my fave purchase of all! My feet are so puny that I rarely get the chance to have cute shoes that fit me. So, when my mom found this I am soo screamin in my head "Hell yeah!". I got these cute wedge shoes for 400 pesos each.

Next morning, my friend and I went to our school to get our clearance. We decided to check Wellmansons in Quiapo since we're passing that place when we go to school. My cousin's birthday is coming up this November so I decided to buy her a gift. I bought my cousin and I matching necklaces since we practically are sisters!

This is the only purchase I have because I found the place when we are about to go home. But I will definitely go back there! That place is a dream! you can buy your DIY accessories parts there for a low price!

We also went to the clearance SM mall in Quiapo. I think everything is cheap out there. I am such a cheapo! So, I bought myself a Nichido mousse blush in Pink champagne. Here are some swatches and pictures of the product.

Oh! I almost forgot. I got this baby at 50% off!! Original price is 168 pesos and I got them for only 84 pesos. ^^,

My dog fell asleep waiting for me to finish taking pictures. LOL

Is that a two headed dog? nahh. the little guy is Flappy's daughter.

Pictures will be better soon. I promise.

Thank you for taking the time to read my posts!

  1. Any dollface palette: I've been lemming for this for so long ever since I have found out about them. I have been saving money for it but with no luck With my limited allowance, I can not indulge myself with such items. I think I'll just wait till my first pay check arrives (hopefully soon.hehe)
  2. Nikkon d90: dslr, dslr, dslr. What can I say? I am cam whore camera deprived person! LOL.
  3. IPOD TOUCH: aside from loving make-up, I am also in-love with music. I started loving music back when I was a child. My mom would let me watch disney movies. PROUD TO BE A DISNEY

NAIL ART: Simple Flower design

Hi guys! I am back with another post! I think I am addicted to blogging now a days. Even in my dreams I see my dashboard! lol.

So, I have to paint my nails today. Since its super short, I can not do my french tip which is my fave.

Anyhoo, here are the products I used:

  • Base coat from Chic nailpolishes
  • Silver glitter nail polish by Colourtrends
  • purple breeze by san san ( which looks pink by the way)
  • 2 way nail art pen from Glossy Blossom (a giveaway courtesy of cookieyuri :))
  • Top coat from Chic nailpolishes
  • toothpick
  • rhinestones which I bought from Isetan Recto 20 pesos for 3 stacks
I just used the 2 way nail art pen in creating the petals of the flowers. Five dots and then use a toothpick to draw a line to the center to make it look like a flower.

Easy huh?
You can also put rhinestone at the middle to add dimension to the look.

I did mine on my ring fingers only.hehe

You can totally mix and match colors.

GARNIER: Light Complete Multi - action whitening cream

Hi everyone! I am back with a product review. By the looks of the title above I am reviewing Garnier's Multi- action whitening cream.
I am recovering from a bad break- out the whole month of September and I am desperately in need of products that will remove the traces of dark spots due to pimple break- out.

By the way, the product that broke me out is the new activated carbon facial foam of Pond's.
It was raved about so I decided to try it. Unfortunately, my skin does not like it. So much for my Pond's skin routine.

Anyhooo, back to the subject. Since I believe that my skin does not want Pond's product into my life, I decided I will try GARNIER. They are well known for their skin line so might as well give it a try.

So, I bought the 20 ml pack (refer to the picture above) after debating with my mom that I like to try the sachet version first but she talked me in buying this version. What the heck, she is the one paying so, why not right?

I've been using this for 3 weeks now and here are my thoughts:


  • It does control my oily face (8hr shine- free look according to the packaging)
  • It lightened my dark spots and acne marks but it is still visible.
  • affordable. (the sachets costs Php20 for 3 packs coz their having a promo I think. 20ml costs around Php 60-70 I'm not quite sure)
  • acts as a good eye shadow primer, too! Since I can not afford yet UDPP, I got creative one day and I used as a primer and my shadows did not crease for the entire day. surprisingly amazing!
  • multi- purpose white cream. With this, you can combine all the steps in your routine with just one step.
  • At first, my skin looks super dry. I guess that was my face adjusting to the product.
  • My powder foundation was difficult to blend when I use it with this product but I don't mind. As long that my skin is matte I am happy with it.
My rating: 4/5

Overall, I am really liking this product and with the prize like that it's very good. I hope you friends can try.

Here is one of my everyday look. Simple winged eyeliner with
nude lips.
