So, I started going to this training last week. I'm surprised that I am so determined to finish this short course. I already finished two modules 2 years ago, so I only have to finish three more. I'm asking permission to take two modules next month and I'm really hoping that they will allow me to. If they agree to let me take two modules at a time, I'm going to finish the training in no time. See? That is how determined I am this time. LOL. But seriously, after working for a year and saved nothing, I am so decided to leave the country and work somewhere else. I realized that if I want to earn more and help my family, the best way is to leave the country. I hope my plan pushes through! Please, God? :)

So anyway, classes were suspended today. I decided not to go home and go to the nearest mall instead, I just got some of my earnings from my part time job anyway. I originally wanted to go to SM North Edsa because Etude House just opened there, but I changed my mind and went to Trinoma. Of course the first store that visited was The Face Shop. I decided to get a new mascara and eyeliner but, when I was about to pay for the stuff I decided to buy, I realized that I only have 200php in my wallet. How embarrassing. i looked for the nearest ATM and withdrew cash but I did not return to The Face Shop! Haha! I went to Powerbooks instead to buy Mitch Albom's Have A Little Faith. I already found the book when I suddenly decided to approach the Customer Service desk and ask if they have new Santa Montefiore books. When the staff said that they have, I changed my mind about getting Have A Little Faith and bought Montefiore's The Perfect Happiness. The book is more pricey than Albom's but what the heck, I missed reading Montefiore so I bought it without second thoughts. The Perfect Happiness is my third fourth book by Montefiore!

Since I missed reading her so much, I decided to look for a place to sit and read. I decided to go to Café Breton. I chose the place because unlike the other more popular coffee shops, there's almost no one in there! I love the spot I was sitting because it's facing outside and it's kind of isolated from all the other tables inside the café. I can see the people walking by. It's always fun to watch them people. :)) Aside from the very few people in the cafe, I also Café Breton's crepe and more affordable coffee.

I ordered Café Mocha and La Delice. The coffee was alright. Not exceptionally good but, it's okay. The crepe was good! I love it. I'm definitely going back there and order La Delice again. It has bananas, mango, almonds, vanilla ice cream and Nutella! I couldn't concentrate on reading because I was too busy eating. I also ordered their warm calamansi juice because my throat is not in a good condition. And it was surprisingly good. I was expecting it to taste weird, but it's good.

Also bought other stuff from Landmark. I saw this cute wallet, it's pink and it's just 100php. I decided to buy it and let my XOXO wallet rest for a while. It's almost worn out, I definitely need to get a new one. I'm getting a new wallet in the next few months anyway so I just settled to this cute little wallet! I also bought a new mirror. It's pink and I love it! Then I saw this cute eyeshadow 12 color pallet. It's affordable and I love the colors. Since I got new eyeshadow set, I decided to get new brushes, too! I've been wanting to try the liquid eyeliner for the longest time so I bought a cheap one. Since I'm so new in putting on liquid eye liner, i just bought a local brand. With all the stuff I bought today, I need to cut down my expenses in the next few days.

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&#…
