A lipstick lover- Vanity Kit

Written by author on June 13, 2010 – 11:11 pm -

It’s already sunday and i don’t want to miss this meme , of course not just because Niko is giving away a $20 raffle to the one who can complete this month’s meme but i really enjoy doing this.

We were really so happy that she reconsider her thoughts about totally stopping this great meme. So, for my vanity kit, ooh yes, you might say that , “what is that”? I see too many lipsticks.  Ooh, it’s just i am really a lipstick addict.  That’s why i love to try Elianto’s lipstick.

So, what can you find in my vanity kit?

Neutrogena facial powder, avon pressed powder, garnier pimple cream/light cream, opti tears for my lens, mascara, blush on, sign pen,  six pieces of different shades of lipsticks, ponytail, brush set, fresh breath, lip liner, brow liner, lip gloss

And yes all of them can be found in my bag.

New prescription, new look and a Lancome Beauty

Written by author on May 24, 2010 – 1:31 am -

Last Thursday, while I am about to have my duty at work, my vision became blurred and i was not able to see for a while. It was three years ago when I have this feeling and it was really very unexpected and heart pounding moment.  I have to talk to my office mate to relieve for me and we hurriedly went to an ophthalmologist to know the real problem.  The Doctor says that there is no other problem regarding my eyes, it might be that i am experiencing head aches and my vision was affected when I put my contact lenses, he advised me to take a rest and that’s what I have done for the whole morning and afternoon.

I really can’t take the pain, so I decided to take a medicine and luckily I was able to get a good sleep afterwards.    When hubby arrived after five o’clock, we went to Naga Optical to buy a new eye glasses.   I opted to wear eye glasses for a while and will jut resume wearing my lenses after two or three weeks perhaps.  The doctor told me that there is nothing wrong with my lenses but still I have made up my mind to wear eyeglasses for the meantime.

(pictures taken from google)

I also grabbed the opportunity to cut my hair short.  It was really not in my plan to have a hair cut, it was very sudden and I just realized that i no longer like my long hair.  Did you like it?  Many of my friends told me that I look younger that my age or maybe they were just kidding me . Lol.

Well, it was very timely because i also decided to take a pose for the Lancome Manila contest showing my favorite Lancome product. Do I look like suffering from a terrible headache. Oooh, you might be saying that I am not because of my smile, hubby was really laughing when he sees me with my pose trying to hide the pain to show my best look and of course to bring home those beautiful set of Lancome Products.

(Nothing can give me the best flawless coverage than my Lancome Dual Finish Versatile powder makeup. It can make an ordinary day extra ordinary. I can wear it all day, from work till an evening of fun with friends. A product you must surely have in your makeup kit. )
Do you have your own Lancome Story, share them and get  a chance to win this fabulous prizes.
Contest is only open until  May 26, so better hurry!

Caramoan, Cam. Sur – Getting There!

Written by author on May 15, 2010 – 5:06 pm -

Last May 1-3, 2010 we got the chance to visit the majestic island of Caramoan. Everything is really beautiful and worth remembering. I have been trying to blog about it but works get into my way.  So, i would start on how to get there.

If your coming from Manila and you have the option to take a plane or bus.

From plane;

Manila Airport – Pili Airport – around 45 minutes (prices of tickets may vary)

Pili Airport – Sabang Port – around 45 minutes from a private van or you can rent a taxi (but i still don’t know how much thus it cost)

From Bus:

Pasay or Cubao Station  to Naga City – prices of tickets may also vary.

Or you can also come from Legaspi City but it was a long ride from there.

Sabang Port – Guijalo Port ( boat ride) around 2 hours   – Price is Php. 110.00

Boats can accomodate more than 50 people and more than 80 i think if it is bigger one.

Two hours of seating on the boat can really be painfull in your buttocks but you can enjoy beautiful scenery and maybe a chat with your friends can pass  time.
From Guijalo Port, you can find jeepney from there.  We were on a package that’s why we did not pay individually for the jeepney ride and i am so busy chatting and looking at the place that i forgot to ask the driver how much is the fare.
It’s another 1 hour to Paniman Island where our inn is located.  Don’t worry, there are roads that are not as bumpy as this but if you have not experience riding on a jeep going up and down the mountain, then you must be prepared yourself for this ride.
Paniman Island is the entry point for all island hopping. So, i highly recommended that you stay on this resort/inn .  I will be making a separate post for this place too.

Breeze and Waves is the right place for your Caramoan Adventure, they offer the best service, amenities and friendly staff and not to forget a very accomodating tour guide and now your ADVENTURE begin!

Can’t wait to see Caramoan? Watch out for the next post!

Be beautiful, join our latest giveaway to win Avon's anew day cream

Written by author on May 15, 2010 – 12:05 pm -

My Journey to Life
Because of the outcome of the voting for our wonderful mom contest, i have decided to stop the contest but just as I promise, I am still be giving treats for our Wonderful Moms.

Being a woman, we wanted to look our best and be beautiful at all times but sometimes it’s really hard to stay that way. I am not blessed with beautiful skin and sometimes i do envy those women who have beautiful white skin but i have learned to accept what I have especially when I have learned that there are many ways to achieve fair and beautiful skin.

As a mother, we often took for granted our self especially our skin, our family is always our first priority but we must also remember that we must not forget to take care of our self, stay fit  and look good not just for our own benefit but also for the benefit of our family. You really don’t want to look 10 years older on your own age. LOL.

Lately, i have been having this big pimples all over my face leaving black marks , it is because i have been addicted to facebook and working with my sites and it really alarms me because when i was still in my teens, i have never experience more than two pimples in a period of one year but as we go older (accept the fact) our skin tends to break more thus we have to be more diligent in taking care of our skin and not to forget to clean them before we go to sleep to remove those dirt especially if your a working mom.

Now, I learned about this new product from Avon’s Anew 360 White that can help my skin erase past damage and will eventually make my skin more whiter and smoother and I wanted to share them with my beloved readers.
