Haru Haru

I sure know how to break a promise. Ha. Ha. After saying that I would be updating in the next few days on my last entry, I updated weeks after! Wow. HAHA. :-)

I finally have something to blog about. I bought three books. this week. Remember when I blogged about Santa Montefiore's The Gypsy Madonna? Well I bought another book of hers and as what I expected, she did not disappoint me. I have read three of her works already and I think this book, The French Gardener, is the best among the three! The novel made me want to own a garden! Haha! I love all the characters in the novel. There are actually lots of characters in her novels, but each character stands out in their own unique quality and you will remember them for sure! I cannot wait to get a copy of The Italian Matchmaker. Powerbooks said they might have the paperback next month since it was released just a few weeks ago.

And also, I have finally bought book 1 of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I love it! Greg makes me laugh. I was reading it while I was on the train and I couldn't help but laugh smile. ;)) I laugh at the corniest jokes, so I am not surprised that the book makes me laugh. HAHA! I'll buy the rest of the books on my next salary.

The other book which I bought is Kafka On The Shore by Haruki Murakami. I had a good feeling when I saw the book. And it says International Bestseller on the cover, why not right? Hihihi!

Of course I will not let this entry to be dominated by my books. :)) I should also be talking about what's happening to me, right? lol. Well, uhm, there's someone who's kind of getting in my nerves lately. I don't want to be rude to that person but can't help myself sometimes.

Okay. I just lost the momentum. Haha. Will blog again some other time! :)

Perks of working! Haha! :-)

Alam mo ba, one of the reasons why I loved going to school when I was still in college, is because of our library! Sarap manghiram ng books! haha!

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&#…
