Mineral Make-up

25 Oct

I’ve always wanted to put on a little make-up whenever I go out but unfortunately, I have sensitive skin. It’s hard for me to find a product that will not cause pimple breakouts even with the slightest brush of the powder. That is why I got interested with mineral make-ups, or MMUs. I have read that since these make-ups are made from minerals, they shouldn’t cause any irritation to the skin. So maybe these are the kind that I should try.

The Body Shop has come up with the Extra Virgin line of mineral make-ups. I bought the loose powder one in 302, that’s the natural color. I also bought a kabuki brush for it.

First time I tried it? I got a pimple on my forehead. 😦 But, I was thinking maybe the pimple came out because I’ll be having my period soon. So I’ll just stop using it for now and just had another go at it after. Will just give another update then. Wish me luck! 😀

Birthday 2011

13 Oct

Happy Birthday to ME!!! 😀

I celebrated my birthday with the Husband only as the kids went to school. He planned everything and it was awesome for me. 🙂

We travelled to Tagaytay for a quick getaway. On the way we stopped by Starbucks at Petron SLEX, and I was lucky to get a customer coupon in our receipt. That meant that I’ll have a free tall beverage on my next visit at any Starbucks branch. Even Starbucks had a gift for me on my birthday. 😀

We checked in at Summit Ridge, our fave hotel in Tagaytay. The Husband also called Seri Asia, the Spa in Summit Ridge, and made a 1PM appointment for a facial for both of us and also a massage for me. The day was a lucky one for me because they also have a promo in their services. It’s half the price for the massage, and a discount in the facials. Yey!

We had lunch at Antonio’s Garden Restaurant. What can I say? Everything at Antonio’s was FAB! The place, ambience, and the food was so delicious. Just look at the pics and I’m sure your mouth will water. 😛

For appetizers/starters:

Antonio's Farm Fresh Mesclun Salad with Raspberry Vinaigrette

Cream of Onion and Potatoes

For the main course:

Grilled Certified Angus Prime Ribeye Steak, rubbed with Cardamom/Antonio's Steak Sauce

My plate:

Antonio's Steak with Mashed Potatoes

The Husband’s plate:

Antonio's Steak with Black Olive Rice

For the Husband’s dessert:

Poached Pear in Port Wine with Vanilla Ice Cream

For my dessert:

Panna Cotta Sampler

We’ll definitely go back at Antonio’s!

After lunch, we headed back to the hotel for a little rest and then we’re off to Seri Asia for some body love. 😛

Having spent my birthday with the Husband was truly great. It really was a grand day for the two of us. 🙂


Thank you to all who remembered my birthday, who called, who left messages through text, email, my FB wall.  You’ve made this day more special for me.  Till my next birthday.  Ciao!


Flowers for ME

12 Oct

Have received these flowers from the Husband for my birthday:

Looks lovely in my workstation:

And this is his gift for me:

Ipod Nano 6G (16GB) - in PINK of course! 🙂

I love the flowers, and I love the gift!

Thanks, Labs! Labu! 🙂


Vanity Room

6 Jul

I had another manicure/pedicure at Vanity Room in Makati.  It’s my 2nd time to have my nails done by them and I must say that I am really loving their service. 

I have tried the same service at Let’s Face It in Greenbelt 1, CANS in dela Rosa, and Nail-a-holics at SM Southmall. But Vanity Room is the one that passed my expectations.  LFI and Nail-a-holics were okay, but in CANS I was really disappointed. I was not satisfied at all with the French tip mani/pedi I had, and their charges were expensive that I really felt I didn’t get my money’s worth.

With VR, I have clean and pretty-looking fingers and toes.  See for yourself:

Oh, did I say that they have a 50% off promo in their services until the end of this month? Yeah, that’s right! 50% off, baby! 😀


Hello Kitty Collection from Sephora

20 Jun

After almost 3 months of waiting, I finally got these:

From L-R: Apple Cheeks in Cherry Blossom, Sweet Gloss in Peachy, Big Smile Gloss in Watermelon, Nail Polish in Pink Sprinkles, and Apple Lip Balm

These are some of Sephora‘s Hello Kitty Collection.  There are many other products in their website, but these were the only ones that I was able to afford.  Visit their site and you would find more make-ups, perfumes, accessories, etc.



Surprise Note

19 Jun

The Husband texted this to me last Friday:

Riddle: Look at the back and you’ll see my message.

Found this at the back of the Ipad cover. Awwww! So sweet! Luvit! 🙂
