I'm A Cheap Girl!

I love cheap finds, be it from tiangges or thrift shop, as long as I like it I'd buy it! I'm not really a brand conscious type of person. I love branded stuff and all, but I cannot always afford those that I want so raiding tiangges and thrift stores are really helpful sometimes! I remember posting an entry on my old blog about my cheap finds and I thought of posting a new one here.
▲ I bought this cropped jacket from an Ukay Store nearby! I was once so obsessed with color yellow! I miss wearing this jacket. Price: 100php-150php ▲
▲ Flats from Baclaran. My Tita in Mindoro owns a shoe store. One time I asked her to buy me a flat shoes. I got this for free, but she got it for a really cheap price. At hello, halata ba? Overused na! lmaoWhole sale Price: 120php-150php ▲
▲The dress / top I was wearing was from an Ukay Store as well. I was on my way home from work when I saw this Ukay Store along Gil Puyat - Makati, I decided to look around and found this cute dress / top. (Hi Ar-ar! :P) This was taken when we just moved in the new office. Boxes everywhere! LOL Price: 120php▲
▲ One of my favorite Ukay finds! Price: 150php ▲
▲ I got this pink top from Greenhills tiangge. Size is XXL. Lol. I was supposed to get the medium one, but the XXL looks better. Price: 150php ▲
▲ The pink cardigan was bought at Landmark. I think I got it for a little over than 200php? The most expensive among the items I included in this entry. Haha! Price: 200php-250 ▲
For my latest cheap find, this starry blue top from a store nearby! Price: 100php

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&#…
