Bag Hunt

It's been a while. I'm finally back to school after being sick for so long. I won't say I missed all the work, but I got to graduate somehow, you know. I already skipped most of the lectures and some seat works so I definitely have a lot of catching up to do! On top of that, I have a major recitation on my law subject tomorrow. Actually, we have major recitation on that subject every meeting so I will definitely be called a lot tomorrow. My law professor said so himself a while ago. Oh, well.
Since school work has been keeping me from making decent reviews lately, I decided to update this blog of mine with a little something that doesn't require much of my time but still is informative and fun, for me, at least. Christmas is just around the corner and I have been keeping myself from going on any shopping spree lately because I want to save up for that special day! As a result of this shopping deprivation, I've made quite a lot of lists already on what I want to buy. I'll be bombarding this blog with wish lists in the following days. Isn't that fun?
I've been looking for the perfect school bag lately and so far, not so good. I'm tired of shoulder bags and tote bags. I've figured hand bags are more spacious for my books and papers, and they won't hurt my shoulders! Let me just share my inspiration for the hunt.

Miu Miu's Top Handles are so chic and youthful, don't you think? I don't know what you call this particular design but it's my favorite. I hope I miraculously pick up $1,495 from the ground so I could buy one, but until then, I just have to make do with something similar. Gold hardware, bow detail, shiny leather, and all.

I adore all three colors so I showed them. It would be lovely if I could get a hold of bags with the same colors. How about you? Which color do you think is the cutest?

Majolica Majorca Lash Expander Frame Plus

Hey, everyone. This is just a quick review on my favorite mascara at the moment. Girls who are not familiar with me always ask whether I'm wearing falsies or not. I have naturally long lashes already and since I am one of those flaunt-what-you-got girls, I like to amp up the length and volume of my lashes by piling up on mascara! As much as I'd like to keep you girls guessing what my secret weapon is, I don't want to keep the awesomeness of this mascara all to myself. Ladies, let me introduce to you my favorite mascara, Majolica Majorca's Lash Expander Frame Plus!

Etude House Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Mineral Water

Hello, guys. Sorry for being MIA lately. I suffered from fever and wasn't able to go to school for almost 2 weeks. I have a lot of catching up to do! Since I'm feeling so much better now, I decided to do something new and made a review! This is my first ever review and I am very open to your comments and suggestions on how I can make this work. Let's get started.

I bought Etude House's Baking Powder Pore Cleansing Mineral Water because I was looking for a makeup remover that is not oily so I can immediately put makeup on after. For looks that will require a really strong eye and a whole lot of glitter, I need a cleansing item that will remove all the mess so I can move on to applying the rest of my makeup. It's also quite handy when it's night and I have to remove my makeup.

There's a new DIVA in Town ;)

Alabang Town Center that is! love diva, an Australian brand offering only the trendiest fashion accessories for girls, is now in the Philippines!

To celebrate the opening of its first store in our country, love diva organized a styling/blogging workshop for teens and fashion bloggers. Thanks to Ms. Sarah Tirona of Ms. Eggplant's Chronicles, I was able to get in to the event. She hosted the contest in which me and my schoolmate, Mica Torres, won.

The event was bloggers exclusive that day so attendees had a preview of the store and its products before the official opening, which is today!!! Let's have a look at the shop, shall we?

SuperSale Bazaar Lipstick Haul

At this point, I can honestly say I am ready to commit myself to a lipstick ban..

I mentioned in my last post that I will be doing a separate haul post for the Supersale Bazaar because I don't want to flood a lot of thoughts into one post. It also gave me time to try out some of the products I bought. But, before I start talking about these items, I'd like to share my preparation for the bazaar first. You can tell I'm loving the items because I talk too much. So, let me begin.

I get a little crazy when you put makeup and sale together. I end up giving in to the impulsive shopper inside me which is really an awful thing. It would have been quite easy to just set a budget, but what if I really spot something and want to buy it so bad? I didn't want to give up the chance of finding such a fabulous item and letting it go so, I turned to the following methods. I armed myself with basic knowledge of the products/ brands/ sellers that will be at the bazaar and made a tiny list of things I wanted to buy/ check out. I also went with someone I begged to keep me from being the shopaholic monster I am or gastadora as my mother would call it. His job involves leading me away from the makeup booths when I feel like I just had to get my hand on everything, slapping me back into reality when the impulsive shopper persona kicks in, although only figuratively since I doubt he will ever be able to slap me hehe, and helping me decide practically which ones to buy. Anyways, here is my original list:

My Supersale Bazaar Experience

My excitement over the SuperSale Bazaar at World Trade Center was pretty well expressed in my last blog post. I was able to go last day and sure enough, I had a really great time! Let's have a look at my little adventure.

*Excuse the lousy pictures. I don't have the sturdy hands of a photographer, and my camera is just a point-and-shoot, c'mon!

Sleek Makeup PH

Hi, girls! I scheduled this post last night so, right now I am probably rubbing elbows with your favorite beauty and fashion bloggers at the SuperSale Bazaar at World Trade Center! But honestly, I might just be running around in circles ogling at all the makeups and clothes I want to buy but won't. LOL. Hopefully, I am having a great time taste testing from food booths and taking pictures too. 

So, last Friday night, Saab Magalona hosted a Sleek Makeup Giveaway in her blog and my friend and I joined in hopes of winning the gorgeous blushes and pout polishes to be given as prizes. We didn't get lucky though. Hehe. If you are familiar with the Chapman sisters' Makeup Tutorials on YouTube, you might have already heard about this brand. If not, let me introduce you to it:

SuperSale Bazaar @ the World Trade Center!


Guess who's going to another bazaar? Me! Bwahaha. There will be a SuperSale bazaar at the World Trade Center on November 4-6. This is going to be huge, I am really excited! I've already made a list of all the things I am going to look for in there so, wish me luck!

Benefit Cosmetics Wish!!!

So, it's true! Benefit Cosmetics is coming to town this December! What a merry Christmas it will be for all makeup lovers like me! I've been eyeing this brand for so long only God knows when, so imagine my delight when I discovered this wonderful news a few weeks ago. I am a sucker for cute packaging and this is one of those makeup lines I just simply cannot resist, plus the quality is amazing! I am hoping though that the products won't be priced far from their US prices. There is import price injustice here in the Philippines, I tell you! *Hello, M·A·C, do you hear me?!

To celebrate this glorious discovery, let me just share what's on my Benefit wish list. I want to try these items, and I will probably end up loving them once I do because I spent so many nights, and days, researching about these products and all have had positive reviews! I might go a little overboard with my wish list, but I have just been eyeing this brand for so long, my list piled up! I was already planning on getting some of these online, but  that would be pretty risky if I'm going to get from local sellers. You need to find reliable ones to avoid getting fakes. Fake cosmetics can damage your skin because you don't know what they're made of! So, going back to my wish list, let me start off with...
