This post is dedicated for blotting films. As you all know what my dilemma is already, I’ve tried a couple of oil blotting films in the market. From Clean and Clear, Rice paper, Gatsby and Beauty formula. Among all these I’ve sticked to Gatsby (the black one) for a long time. It costs P120 for 75 sheets. It do it’s job well, though when I use liquid foundation it messes up my make up a bit.
I recently came across bitsandtreats’ blog and featured Kleenex blotting paper and was surprised that Kleenex came up with this. I wasn’t really planning on buying this yet since, I still have my gatsby. But when I went to Shopwise, I saw this at the beauty section and bought it! XD It costs for P89 for 50 sheets. I guess for the sake of trying something new too that’s why I bought it. The Beauty formula is quite pricey P150 for 50 sheets, I never bought that again. For now, I’ll try to see how the Kleenex works for me.
This item is a must have in my kikay kit, I can’t leave the house without it. Although, one trick I do so that it won’t mess up my make-up is, I pat my face with tissue first then I use the blotting film.
What’s your favorite blotting film that works for you? I’d love to hear them.
Wonderful Saturday morning everyone! Thankfully I had a good sleep last night, been tired lately. I just want to catch up on some Zzz’s because I only get 5-6 hours of sleep max during the week. Just worried that my health may take it’s toll on me in the long run and I don’t want that. Anyway, for today’s post just wanted to share what I cooked for the family for breakfast. Well, it’s not really a mind blowing meal really. Decided to cook turmeric rice, spam, omelette and heated the adobong kangkong.
I accidentally poured too much pepper but it still tasted okay.
And the whole time I was cooking my other kitty was there the whole time either because he’s the sweetest one or just waiting patiently to be fed. haha.
He says good morning too! Enjoy!

Konnichiwa! I have a new L-O-V-E, well I know in one of my previous post I mentioned about my lemmings in the new LG Cookie right? Well scratch that, I’ve found a new love and it’s the Nokia C3. I promised myself to open an account, but seems like it will be delayed a bit since this model will be launched pretty soon at a very good deal I believe. Here’s how the phone looks like, it’s so me!
For now my phone is the Nokia 5130 Express music given to me by BF then. And here’s a comparison of my phone now to the new C3
What I like about it, is it’s WIFI capable with full HTML format and for the introductory price of around P5,000 + or so only. Not bad. I was sold to the color actually. And also because I really need a WIFI capable phone whenever I’m out since bringing a laptop everyday is not my thing. With the make-up bag I have it consumes a lot of space in my bag already.
I’m glad Nokia says true to their tag line, connecting people. By making cheap phones designed with their N-series, which has a hefty price. I’m not brand conscious of phones really, not the type of getting what’s in or what. Never was. So for this one, I will be buying this as soon as possible. I can almost feel it in my hands <3 Will definitely blog about this as soon as I get this.
Happy Weekend my dear readers!
Espresso anyone? actually it’s Espresso Comics, first of all, let me tell you a little introduction about it.
What is Espresso? Espresso is a weekly magazine that features one-shot comic stories, as well as a regular comic series by Filipino creators. Espresso will be distributed for FREE at the stations of the Light Rail Transit (LRT) Lines 1 & 2
There are actually good comics that we have now, such as TRESE (by Budjette Tan and Kajo Baldisimo) which made me a convert of loving comics more, ZsaZsa Zaturnnah by the very super nice artist Sir Carlo Vergara and a whole lot more. Just to brag a little, I’ve met them in person and they are all super nice and friendly to us FANS, also had my picture taken with them. For those who haven’t heard of their works yet they are available at all National Bookstores.
I’m proud to say that the creator of Espresso is a good friend of mine, well actually she’s a really good friend of BF then. For the very first issue (pilot issue), we have Mars Mag by Ria Lu about the fashion industry. It’s actually my favorite story among her group. Unfortunately it’s just a pilot issue, but don’t fret because as I mentioned Espresso will have different stories EACH WEEK FOR FREE! Don’t you just love it? and it’s something new too, compared to the MRT which has the free LIBRE newspaper, for LRT stations they have Espresso. It something that hasn’t been done, since mostly some comics that are free are online. By the way, for those who missed out on the LRT, Robinsons Mall, Comic Odyssey in Manila and Galleria have copies too, so get one if you’re around the area. As for me, I’m looking forward to having another issue of Espresso, it’s addicting! If you want to know more about Espresso check out their link @ http://espressocomics.wordpress.com/ and here’s a picture of the pilot issue
From what I know the upcoming issue is pretty interesting, so stay tuned!
What are your thoughts about comics? I’d love to hear them.
Hello Ladies! Happy Friday Morning to all! As promised, I will post updates on the things I’ve bought last week.
1. First of is the new L’oreal Damage repair shampoo:
I was pretty amazed with this shampoo, as I was expecting to see results in 2 weeks, but the first time I tried it it was L-O-V-E! after the first wash of shampoo it was as if I used conditioner, it was so soft and that time it was perfect because I had a special date. He likes running his fingers through my hair and before I was a bit conscious because of the tangles. Now as for the frizziness, it was manageable compared before, but it’s still there. Unfortunately for my haircut, I really hated it (and I won’t mention where I had my haircut done last year), most days I have bad hair days that I have to tie up my hair in a bun, or sometimes a freaking fly away hair.
The shampoo has a rich texture, much richer than rejoice or pantene (or pretty much the same) As for the conditioner variant, if the first wash of the shampoo was soft, your hair gets more softer after the 2nd wash of the conditioner. You can say that I really really love this Shampoo, and looks like this will be my staple shampoo and conditioner for a long time.
L’oreal says: The 1st total reparation of the 5 signs of damaged hair with Cement-Ceramide, L’oreal’s exclusive active ingredient, that works 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: 1. Stronger 2. Nourished 3. Shinier 4. Smoother 5. Less split ends
My verdict: 5/5 kikay points
Although, when I really want my hair clean from oiliness and dust I use Head and Shoulders Citrus clean, it does it’s job well. So I’ll be using it from time to time, depending on my activity and weather.
Will I repurchase? YES!
What’s your favorite shampoo that works for you? I’d love to hear them.
2. Garnier’s self heating mask
I was happy to get this as a freebie, given to me by BF then in the espresso launch. When I saw self heating, I was like, really? it promises to purify pores in 7 days and me being too tired to do an extra mile of cleansing my face I’ve only tried this for 3x. This is how it looks like
Garnier says: The formula generates a self-heating action on contact with skin. Specifically developed with clay and zinc, it works to remove impurities and excess sebum to unclog pores and refine skin texture. Your skin should be deeply cleansed and looks shine free. It feels purified for up to 7 days.
Now, with that being said, If you’re like me who has oily skin, I think you should use this consistently to keep from being to shiny. How does it feel after using it? Well, i did feel the heat upon contact with skin. Actually you only put this on your T-Zone area, forehead, nose and chin for 3 minutes and then the heat eventually subsides. The heat is tolerable so don’t worry ;) I loved how it did make my t-zone less shiny on that day and cleansed. So this product is worth buying! You can use this once or twice a week.
My verdict: 3.7/5 kikay points (I’m pretty sure there’s a better product, like the one I saw at Shen’s Addiction, that I must buy too, but for the mean time this product works, so not bad at all!
Will I repurchase? YES!
3. http://bitsandtreats.blogspot.com/ – Chosen owner of her set 1
I came across bitsand treats’ blog through sugar sugar and saw that she’s having her set 1 of human nature’s tomato and lemon grass toner. I’ve heard good reviews for this product, specifically for oily skinned people like me and decided why not right? and it’s free? It gives me a chance to test the product first and if it works for me then It’s a must buy in my list.
Human Nature says: For normal to oily skin. When alcohol-based toners sting, they are drying your skin, which leads to premature aging. Now you can tone without the aging! Tomato & Lemongrass is a combination packed with anti oxidants such as lycopene, beta carotene and Vitamin E that helps fight free radicals and maintain healthy cells. Tomato is also bursting with Vitamin C to brighten. Don’t get old, pamper yourself with Nature’s Best!
I’m not sure if this lessens the oiliness since it didn’t mention anything about that, but as for the brightening effects I’ve been using this 2 days straight for now but it seems that every time I use it my face looks a little brightened. As for the smell, it smells kinda weird but understandable because it’s organic, no issues there for me. I think I’d see results in a week or so. As for my skin, I hardly have any breakouts, (but when I do, I have breakouts bigtime. Also after taking a shower some part of my face gets red and a little bit itchy) though I have oily skin it’s hard to maintain looking fresh throughout the day or night. One of my biggest issues really.
Btw, I first read a review about this at Cabyness’ blog she’s on her 3rd bottle I think, you might want to check it out. http://cabyness.blogspot.com/2010/05/tomato-from-heart.html
My verdict: 3.6/5 kikay points
Will I buy? YES! and thanks to http://bitsandtreats.blogspot.com/ for letting me adopt her human nature.
So that’s about it for updates!

I do enjoy reading all of your wonderful posts, keep it coming!

I’m now techie Kitty as BF then tells me last night. I was able to install the router at home and now we’re WIFI ready baby! WOOT! it’s an achievement for me actually, I didn’t have to depend on anyone upon installing (although, asked a few questions to BF through skype). But everything else was done by myself and it was surprisingly easy. Just follow the instructions provided by the CD and the rest is a breeze.
The first thing to do is insert the CD and the instructions for installing the router is provided already. It’s actually really easy, and I think I don’t have to tell the run down on how to do it.
Inside the box, router, extra cable, charger
Although I’m still in the same place where I usually surf (dining table). The wifi works in my brothers room which is good, but in my room i think the signal is quite bad, but I’ll try again later to check. And good thing about it is, I don’t or we don’t have to constantly remove the ethernet cable every time we want to use it. My brother is now happy that he can surf in his laptop at his room any time he wants to. We don’t have to wait for someone’s turn to finish, haha! Although I hope that they bought the wifi with a bigger range since there are so many walls at home. But it’s good. I was surprised actually that mom bought a wifi.
Just wanted to share my experience with you guys, so if a dummy like me can install a router, I’m pretty much sure you can too!
Techie Kitty, Wifi ready! lol
I wanted to make separate blog about the movie Karate Kid and this is my first attempt in making a movie review, it deserves one as well, it was too good than expected.
Well of course, the first time I saw the trailer I was so-so about this movie and was even hesitant with Jaden Smith, but after it showed, it received good reviews and comments, even my nephew enjoyed it and he’s just 7 years old!
It couldn’t be helped, it has to be compared with the old movie, which I watched as a kid and never enjoyed it. This is the one I’m talking about
It has almost a different plot though, as the new Karate Kid portrayed by Jaden Smith has a “deeper” dilemma, he lives in China and feels like an outcast and bullied by a Chinese boy who turns out to practice Karate as a sport. And Jackie Chan a maintenance guy who knows the art and there’s a story behind him. Not just him, being a master and teaching. I’m not bad mouthing the old movie okay, I’m just a sucker for good stories really.
For Jackie Chan, this wasn’t his usual role that he portrays and it just proves that he is a very flexible actor. He did very well (in my opinion) with his acting and of course at his age man, he can still do karate! haayaaah! lol. And for Jaden Smith this will definitely open doors for him. Upon filming this movie, his dad and mom Will and Jada we’re part of the producers and man, Jaden so looks like his dad. A complete carbon copy, even the facial expressions. I still have a hang over this movie and deserves a 2nd watching. All I can say is that I love this movie a lot, deserves in my list of favorite movies.
My verdict: 4/5 popcorns
Hello readers! How are you all doing? It’s my 2nd day off today and I’m loving it, I was able to catch up on my 8 hour and more beauty rest, haha. Because yesterday had only 2 hours of sleep for the whole day and went to work after the fun-filled date with the BF then. We had breakfast together at Jollibee because I was craving for their longganisa meal for the longest time. Nothing beats Jollibee’s breakfast meals, yum! In the afternoon, we headed to Megamall to check out a few things and at the same time, just enjoy looking around at gadgets and girly stuff for me. We ended up watching there too, supposedly we we’re to watch at Robinson’s Galleria since it’s near the office but I like it better at Mega Mall. We decided to have dinner first then watch the movie Karate Kid, I thought of eating at the food court since we wanted something cheap, but it was so funny when we passed by Shakey’s I suddenly got un-decided of what to eat, but he knows me well and he was walking reaalllyyy slowly for me to think fast if we should go with Shakey’s or food court. haha. I made up my mind and we went inside Shakey’s. First I recommended that we eat the bunch of lunch, since it has everything already, but to our surprise while browsing at their menu was the Family deal 1 which had: Your choice of pasta or chick’ n chips, pizza, garlic bread and a pitcher of ice tea all for P541. Not bad at all eh? good for 2-3 persons. We also ordered additional Mojo’s n Dip with ceasar dressing, both our favorite!
This is such a good deal that I noticed most of the customers are ordering the same thing but others opted for chicken. It was quirky actually, ^_^ The food was served freshly cooked and importantly hot! When I saw the servings of the pasta I thought we couldn’t finish it because it was a-lot! the bits of meat was so flavorful it’s a rave. He also loved it that he finished off the plate, we both just love pasta so much (Can’t wait to cook for him).
As for the pizza, I’m not a fan of their Pizza both thin and thick crust. I don’t know why, I just don’t. It’s not that their pizza is bad, maybe it’s the combination of flavors or something. The garlic bread was as usual not bland at all, another spoon of approval. Our total bill cost us around P687.75 and tipped the waiter for fast and good service. ^_^ As usual, they always ask if we can answer a survey sheet which we gladly answered and at the back of the survey is -
His avatar of himself. Sorry for the bad lighting it’s too yellowish. I think it’s a good idea that he makes this every time he eats out, who knows people may wonder who this guy is right? Here’s a sneak peek of his works http://diobrando.deviantart.com/. He’s both a gamer and an artist
Shakey’s isn’t really new but we keep coming back when we crave for pasta and Mojo’s. I guess it’s the service that makes it different to us customers. So far, the branches which has good customer service are SM Bicutan and Megamall Ortigas.
By the way, I couldn’t resist but take this picture, gotta love Puss in Boots right?
My Verdict: 4/5 spoons (the 3.5 for food and the additional point goes to their customer service)
Of course we’ll be eating there again when we crave for pasta!
More blog posts coming up!

Happy Tuesday Ladies, how are you all doing so far? As for me sleep deprived as usual and looking forward for my day off from work (just one more day). Well it’s the 15th so payday again, WOOT! I’ve managed to budget my money just in time for the big step of “ensuring” my future, hehe. A good friend of mine and I plan to have a girl’s out pampering day this September, so we can have enough time to save up, which is a good idea too! It’s been a while since we spent time together or even talk since she’s in the morning shift and I’m on graveyard shift. I hope that we can push through with our plan.
Anyway, I just couldn’t resist buying the new product of L’oreal, aside from the many products they have out there (shampoo products), this was the only thing that made me want to buy and hope that it is effect as they say in the commercial. So here it is
Aside from this being a need, it is also a want so it serves as rewarding myself, I got much a much higher pay as expected which was a surprise. Maybe next month it will be cut by a thousand due to taxes, etc. Maybe in 2 weeks I hope there will be a (if not big, maybe slight) difference with my hair and will make a review in 2 weeks time. I also bought food for the office since I plan to just make baon at work. Mostly asian spicy noodles, hot choco, chips and century tuna’s corned tuna (yeah I know it isn’t very healthy) haha!
Well, it’s still a long week ahead, till then!
Monday, June 14, 2010
Happy Sunday Ladies! Hope you’re all enjoying the long weekend. Traveling every Sunday is just a breeze in the MRT, just wished it was always like that specially on weekdays.
For today’s “little” surprise which I wasn’t expecting made my day a little better. I wanted to attend Espresso Comics’ Launch last Saturday but couldn’t get off to work (more about Espresso comics http://espressocomics.wordpress.com/) So, the BF then told me how the event went and I was hoping to get free copy of the comics but told me there was only one copy of the magazine comics, then slowly handed me a Garnier loot bag from the event.
It was sweet of him actually, when he gave me the bag I felt I was a kid being handed a bag of candies. Pretty much the same reaction at that time :) Thanks so much dear, I really appreciate it much. The facial wash and toner is nothing new to try since I’ve been using this for a month now, although I haven’t tried the self heating mask yet. I will be making my review about it on the first try and if I like it that much then I’ll definitely be buying this for sure. My week ended with a nice touch and I love it!
Remember my post about the Nature’s Spa Shampoo, well I can’t give a thorough review about it yet since I didn’t buy the conditioner variant. I stopped using this as I noticed that it doesn’t do anything in my hair, or maybe because I should have bought the peach one which is for dull hair. So, I just used this for my 2 cats, haha. Yeah I know! but it would be a waste if I just leave this unused right?
This is what I’m talking about
But I’m not sure if I’ll be buying this again, I knew I should have bought the L’oreal Shampoo. But I’m glad I didn’t because there’s a new product that came out just recently I believe, The L'oreal New Total Repair Shampoo and Anne Curtis is the endorser for this product. This is what my hair needs, I’ve been recently conscious about how frizzy and dry it is so I’m giving this product a shot.
That’s all for now! My kitties says goodnight too!

In my previous post, I made a list of rewarding myself on make-up products, this time it’s for gadgets. Ever since the first LG cookie came out, I instantly fell in love with it. Sleek and black, just the way I like it in mobile phones. Currently, they released a new LG Cookie KM555e which now has wi-fi capability, 3 MP camera, full touch and social networking. Which fits my needs perfectly. Also loving the specs!
LG Cookie KM555e
- 3.15 MP, 2048x1536 pixels
- Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g
- microSD, up to 16GB
- bluetooth v2.1 with A2DP
- Accelerometer sensor for UI auto-rotate
- MP4/H.263 video player
- MP3/WAV/AAC audio player
- Music ID
- Voice memo
I really love it! and I think it costs around P10,000 max since SRP is around P7000++ not bad really, I don’t mind spending for a phone that costs P15,000 or less. I’m pretty sure I’ll be buying this, this year since the other gadget that I’m planning to buy will take a long time, what is it? it’s the ASUS EEe netbook 1008P Karim Rashid collection. BF then says that it fits perfectly since I love anything color pink and the features fits my needs, mostly because it’s pink. But for that, I would need at least P20,000 more or less.
Another reason for buying a netbook is because I’ve had my 15 inch ACER laptop with me for 4 years, UNTIL we got robbed at home just last week. Good thing it was the only item stolen in our house. So it’s one of the reasons why I want to buy my own laptop, for now mom was able to have an X Deal with a client in exchange of a Compaq presario for the family to use. I just want my own really, so I can also bring it in the office or where ever I am. Don’t you just love how pink it is? I’m just so kikay really, sometimes BF then just does the face palm when I make the quirkiest comments. hehe.
So there goes my list of rewarding myself, but the make-up will have to be the first priority of course, since I want to try those and make my own reviews about it. But it would have to wait for now, since my top most priority is that savings account. Will definitely blog about it next month.
On other things, my weekends are spent on weekdays, and I’m looking forward to spending time with the BF then on Wednesday. This is one of my most favorite photos of him. Happy Happy!
After Elections 2010
Happy weekend Ladies and Gents!

For the cat lover that I am, I try my best to test out what products are good for my cats, like the most effective litter and kibbles. For cat lovers out there, here’s my thoughts on certain cat products that I’ve tried, tested and researched about. First off, let’s talk about kitty litters. As we all know, cats’ feces smell horrible and can leave the area where the litter tray is placed smell bad. So you need to buy something that would really work for you and your kitty.
My top 3 picks for kitty litters:
1. Catsan 5ml for P200 (depending on where you buy it)
Catsan has fine like grains, which is good because it does not waste up too much of the product compared to bigger grains. As for clumping, it does it's job well and does not harden too much compared to another brand named Happy Cat, which hardens like cement (almost), as for odor control, It's quite tolerable and can last for 8 days maximum. But I'd suggest that you put baking soda or arm & hammer litter deodorizer which costs about P138.95
2. Feline Essence 5ml, I buy mine either at Dog City Makati P350 and Ace Hardware Cash and Carry P299
Feline Essence has different scents where you can choose from, I bought mine with a fresh lemon scent. If you have clear eyes, you can see that it has fine grains, finer than Catsan actually. I have tried 2 scents already, the Lemon and Rosemary, I prefer the lemon scent though as for the rosemary has a very subtle smell. It’s much cheaper if you buy this at Ace hardware, just P300 bucks.
3. Prize Litter
This one is really hard to find these days at Shopwise or Rustan’s Supermarket, although it’s not clumping it works really well and the scent smells really good compared to the Feline essence. This one costs only P183.75 at Shopwise but for the longest time they have not been restocking this great product. Grains are not that fine and color is ash black. I really hope they will restock this, I’ve only seen this at Rustans.
Other brands I’ve tried are Tidy Cats, which is probably my next best bet. Happy cat, well, I hated this product as it clumps so hard and does not do anything in absorbing the smell. After trying out a few, I now stick to the brands that work for me and my cats. Although, there is one product called Kitty Comfort but it’s so expensive, costs around P700+ or more but it’s a big box and I think it can last a month and I’ve heard good reviews about it so far, maybe next time.
In my experience, it’s not only the disinfecting and choosing the right litters that would help lessen (somehow) the smell of a cat’s poop. I’ve noticed every time I feed them Whiskas their poop smells soooo horrible. So it’s the food as well. I’ve stayed away from feeding them Whiskas since it’s just junk food and has a high content of ash magnesium which is bad for the cats. Well, it’s okay to give them that, just not too often. Well, so there you go!
For cat lovers out there, what brands do you buy for your kitties?
Hello readers, weekends are almost here, what are you all up to?
As for me, here’s another food review which is a backlog already. Didn’t have time to do this in the office these days. So anyways, I’ve been lemming on Mongolian Quick Stop for some time now and so far, I have not been disappointed yet with my orders. First was the Spicy fish pasta (which was just sardines btw) and the Schezuan squid which had rice, lots of white onion and green bell peppers. This one cost me around P110 ala cart, I noticed their prices are quite pricey though, but it’s good to reward yourself with something like this from time to time.
Schezuan Squid P110 ala cart
For the price, I would say that I wasn’t disappointed with how big the servings are, even with the pasta I ordered a few weeks ago, servings were pretty big and most importantly flavorful. As for this order, this one really filled up my tummy. I just wished that it had more squid pieces rather than the onions, but it was no biggie. And the texture of the squid wasn’t tough (which is the most important factor), you wouldn’t want to eat a rubbery squid do we? Usually I love my food spicy so I asked them to make it spicy for me but then the lady said that it’s already spicy and YES it is! as for the sauce beneath the overloading toppings, the rice was smothered with the spicy schezuan sauce. Another happy spoon for me. Too bad I can’t order this everyday, since I’m on a budget. Looking forward to eating here with my significant other some day.
So the verdict? 3.9/5 Spoons (I have yet to taste authentic Schezuan, any suggestions?)
Will I eat there again? Of course I would! Will order something new this coming payslip (hehe).

A long over due review, but before anything else sad news my dear readers. Our house got robbed and the only thing that got stolen was my acer laptop, but they forgot to get the charger (stupid dumbass!) Oh well, was really glad nothing bad happened to us that night.
It’s time for my favorite review, food review! and for this week it’s Mongolian Quick Stop at Robisnons Galleria. I’ve been meaning to try this out with my significant other, but we always end up eating at our favorite places like Japanese, Italian or fast food. So for a change I decided to try it out on my own. I was torn between their rice meals or noodles and was surprised that they serve noodle dishes. I ordered the Spicy fish noodles which cost me around P85. Pictures below
This was my order, at first I was expecting huge chunks of fish since it says on the sign board fish noodles, but then it was just spicy sardines. 1 spoon down, as for the taste? It was flavorful and is indeed spicy! So I was not disappointed there. Servings were quite huge too. My thoughts about it, they should have said sardines instead of fish.
My verdict: 3/5 spoons
Will definitely eat here again :)

Hey there, I know I’ve been slacking on my reviews on beauty products and food, been caught up with work and before I could even take a picture of the new things that I’ve tried particularly food, It’s gone! haha. But anyway, today is sweldo day, unfortunately my supposedly hair color date is cancelled, I just have to prioritize things first. I’m sure that by next month I’ll be to open my own savings account, WOOT! I don’t really earn that much, but it’s not that small, since I’m just a fresh graduate with no work experience yet so It’s all good. Work has been the same, although it will get more hectic in the coming weeks to come since our “boss” from Hong Kong will be visiting us and have a meeting, so yeah, this will be my first time to meet Sir Louise. But enough about work, I may be boring you, haha.
My haven or stress reliever would be going to beauty stores like Watsons, PCX, SM beauty (makati) etc. And of course, I needed to buy a few stuff (although I made sure not to overspend though). So here are my beauty haul
It’s not much really, and excuse the background, I may not have time to do this tomorrow so I took a picture of it at my work station. Some were not included anymore as it’s just the basic like a whole lot of pack of tissues and others were brought at Shopwise like deodorant, etc. What caught my eye was this yummy looking shampoo, Nature’s Organics fruits in wild berry scent. Sounds yummy no? haha.
It’s actually cheap, for only P170, not bad, although I didn’t buy the conditioner, just wanted to try out the shampoo first since I’m a loyal user with creamsilk. lol. But maybe next time. There’s 3 scents I think and each depending on to what your hair needs. I think my hair’s kinda limpy or maybe because it’s in a scent and color that I love, haha. Oh well. I haven’t tried it yet, and I’m not even sure if this one is new in the market. I’ll make an update regarding this yummy looking shampoo, until then!
Enjoying the Weekday so far ladies?
