For The Eyes & For The Nails

An hour before finally boarding the bus to Batangas during my most recent trip to Mindoro, I decided to look around this small shopping center in Buendia near the bus station. Although there are quite a number of stores there, only one of them caught my attention. I saw this shop which sells Korean goodies. The clothes are not that pretty, the accessories are average looking but what I really liked are their sunglasses and caps! I forgot to ask how much their caps are but the sunglasses are so affordable. They have really cute designs, too bad I forgot to take a photo. I bought one for just P100.00!

▲It's cute, right? Perfect for summer! Yey!▲
▲Please tell me it looks good on me. Lol.▲


There's this Korean Mart near our school and they sell some cosmetics from, of course, Korea! I've been eyeing this liquid eyeliner ever since they opened the store, but I was kind of hesitant because I'm not familiar with the brand name of the cosmetics company. I researched about the brand and found out that it's good. I've already used it and it's easier to use than the previous liquid eyeliner that I was using! I totally love it!
▲It's Korean and it has cute packaging, how could I resist this? Lol.▲
▲It's really cute right? I read that Ddung Dolls are kind of famous fashion dolls in Korea.▲


When I was in Mindoro, I dropped by CitiMart to check out if the stuff they are selling there has improved. Lol. I was so happy to found that their nail polish selection is now bigger. Yey. I found this Enchant Nail Polish, they have pretty colors at such affordable price! P19.00. I usually buy from The Face Shop (P95.00) or Etude House (P125.00) for the polishes I use, so seeing these affordable nail polishes really made me ecstatic! I bought so many shades of pink. Haha! I'm crazy for pink and nail polish like that.
▲I bought all these for P171.00!▲
▲I already used the Bonnie Pink polish for Ate Aileen's wedding. I love the color, I bought two bottles of this shade.▲
▲My nails are painted with Cool Blue. Yey!▲

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&#…
