Robinson's Magnolia

I love going to malls! I don't always shop for clothes, bags or shoes when I'm at a mall because, well I don't have the means of doing so! Haha! I usually just do grocery shopping, book hunting and filling my tummy with my cravings. One of the reasons why I love our place is because the malls are very accessible from here. I live in Sampaloc, very near in U-belt, so everywhere seems like just a ride away. If I want to go to SM North Edsa or Trinoma, it's just an FX ride away. If I want to go Shang or Mega Mall, one FX ride away, too. SM San Lazaro is just a jeepney ride from here. Greenhills / Robinson's Galleria  are a bus ride away only. And just recently, Robinson's Magnolia opened. It's very accessible because I just need to ride the LRT and get off at Gilmore station. And from there, I can ride a jeepney or just walk to reach the newest mall in town!

Yesterday, I finally went for a courtesy visit (LOL) at the newest mall! After the mass, my little sister and I went there to do a little grocery shopping. Are you guys ready for the photo bombarding event today? :))
I'm definitely a dress kind of girl. When I not in the mood to think of my outfit or if I'm on a rush, I just grab a dress and pair it flats. I bought the dress from Greenhills, flats from Shoebox and bag from Mango.

I love the new mall! The feel inside is just so cozy. And it still looks so neat and it feels so cold. Yun nga lang, most of the clothing lines are still not open. But soon, they will be! :)

I am inlove with the Al Fresco area! :) 

NY Cheesecake
My sister and I already had early dinner after the mass and before going to Robinson's Magnolia, so we just had cakes there. We ate at Sugarhouse. Little sister ordered Marjolaine and Frozen Choco Drink. I've been craving for cheesecake for few days already so I ordered NY Cheesecake and then had Iced Caffe Latte.

And of course, one of the reasons why I love new malls is because it's still not too crowded and the restrooms are sooo clean! I hope they keep it clean forever!

I'll visit again next month, hopefully by then all the clothing lines are already open. Not that I would shop, I just love looking at stuff and torturing myself. LOL. But who knows right, maybe by then, I have money  na to shop again? Haha! 'Til next post, friends!

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&#…
