Books, Books, Books.

I’ve been wanting to post something here since few days back but I couldn’t write anything. I haven’t been going out with my friends and that makes it even harder for me to blog. Y’see, I usually just blog about what had happened to me on that certain day – who I was with, what we did, where we went.. Just those stuff. And since I’m just stuck here, I couldn’t think of anything to blog. Plus it’s just me and Kennon here so it can really get so boring!

Thank goodness I have books. I already finished the book I bought few days ago. I knew right when I saw it that would not disappoint me. The Gypsy Madonna (by Santa Montefiore) is one of those books which I literally did not put down until I’ve finished reading it. I even brought it with me when I peed. HAHA. No exaggeration, I really did. I agree with Emily Bunton (Booklist) when she said the Santa Montefiore is a grand story teller. She definitely is!

I loved the novel because Mischa, the main character in the novel, had a very interesting childhood. Almost half of the book talked about his childhood/adolescent life. And along with that interesting childhood were interesting people around him. The minor characters were as fascinating as the main character. Each of the characters Santa Montefiore made has their own distinctive quality which made each of them remarkable. I just wished that Mischa and Cayote have reunited in the end, though. :-/

I don’t think I have mentioned this before, but I started reading the Twilight Saga last month. Yes, just last month. Last year, I have read so many bloggers blogging how good the book is and how cold cool Edward is. It hadn’t really caught much of my attention because I don’t really fancy vampire stories. Then I learned that it was going to be in theatres so I told myself that I would just watch the movie first and then read the book after. So I watched the movie, I liked it but it still I didn’t think of buying books. It was just last month, because I knew that I would be in need of something to read in case the internet connection would take long.

So there, I am still not done with Breaking Dawn. Ha. Ha. I don’t like the saga so much. You see, if I like what I am reading, I wouldn’t wait for tomorrow to finish the book. But it’s been a month now and I still haven’t finished it. And It’s just now that I blogged about it. So that means I really don’t like it so much. Heehee. I remember how bloggers would take sides. Team Edward and Team Jacob. Well, I’m a Team Jacob. I love him and the wolves. I love the Cullens too (I love Alice the most), but not as much as I love the wolves. =))

And hooray for me. I finally blogged!

Me wants more booooks. Gimme, gimme. :P

Nung unang basa ko nung Twilight saga super baliw na baliw ako kay Edward pero ngayon parang wala lang. Ahaha! Ako naman I like the vampires over the wolves. Pero gusto ko pa rin yung wolves. Favourite kong vampire si Emmet! =D

I love reading books as well! Siguro kung nanalo ako sa lotto isa sa mga unang gagawin ko iriraid yung mga bookstores!

hhmm...i'll try to find gypsy madonna sa library namin. hopefully meron. =)

Yay, Good read talaga si Santa Montefiore.I'm going to buy her other books kapag may moolah na ulet. (that explains why hindi ako makapagparebond, nauubos sa books!). Sop far kase 2 books pa lang nya yung meron ako. :)

Nobela reply din ako? haha

ALex:I like Emmet too! I think I like him more than Edward. Obviously not an Edward fan here. Haha!

Ay, pareho tayo! Alam mo ba, everytime nagkakapera ako, books kaagad yung una kong naiisip na bilihin! Sobra!

Magalawa Island in Zambales - 2016

To kick off Philippines' Summer 2016, we headed to Magalawa Island in Palauig, Zambales. Travel time from Manila is more or less 5 hours, depending on your stop overs if you go there by a private car. Boat ride to Magalawa was quick. I think it was between 10-15 minutes.
I did my research before going to the island. And yes, I have read about the feud between the two resorts in the island, Armada and Ruiz. The person in charge for reservation first inquired at Armada but they were fully booked already.  Since I did my research, I knew that I shouldn't expect much. I was looking forward to it, but definitely, I had my expectations set!
So, we arrived at Ruiz, the staff are really nice. People are really helpful and kind. As for the shoreline at resort, I was not disappointed because, like what I have said, I knew what we're going to see. It would have been really better if there were no seaweeds. The water is really clear but the seaweeds are really annoying!  I enjoyed st…

The Neutrals & Nudes (MAC Siss, Yash, Mocha, Taupe)

I took these photos of the lipsticks months ago, but apparently, I would always end up not posting it. Here I am again, drafting an entry but unlike last time, this is not going to be a failed attempt! So let's start!
Lipsticks are my favorite make up! It's the easiest to apply, the most convenient to bring and that make up that can easily give you a transformation from daytime to night time look! My make up kit which I bring to work everyday has a lot of lipsticks in it. I do not even know why I carry a lot of lipstick with me always, but that's how girls are! We bring all the make ups that we can (or is it just me?)!
These are four of the liptsicks that I tend to carry with me everyday. Well, I do not change lipstick every 3 hours, but I like bringing them because I love mixing them lippies! :D

LA Matte Pigment Gloss - Fleur

I think I have mentioned a lot of times how I am a matte kind of girl. I have been seeing a lot of people posting and raving about the LA Matte Pigment for more or less a year now. I was really hesitant to try it because I had an impression that it would be like the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams which I didn't really like.
What made me decide to finally give it a try is when I saw one of my officemates wearing it. It looked really pigmented and I noticed how it has a long lasting effect! There is a stall near my work place which sells the brand so I bought one. I forgot how much exactly did I but it for, but I'm sure it's not more than 350php.

I decided to get Fleur. I was initially thinking of getting Dreamy because I loved it so much when I swatched it but I got talked into getting Fleur because the staff told me that it looks better on me! Lol.
It's really pigmented and I can vouch for its staying power! It doesn't have a weird smell, too so plus points again! It&#…
