What's In my Bag October

This will be my second post about my bag.

I just got so bored today its holiday and its my rest day. I wasn't able to go out because of the pain in the butt I am experiencing now and I really want to go to Landmark to find something. But I chose to stay home for me to be safe.

I shared what's in my bag before and what's fail about it is, the bag itself was not in the picture. HAHA. It came to my mind today to share "what's in my bag" when I found my stuff scattered in my room because the bag was in the laundry.  
About the bag I'm using, it's my boyfriends bag , it was given to him and he wants me to use it. And now here's the picture. I promise to be better when it comes to taking pictures with this kind of post, still studying how the light works. I am using canon s95 and hey! its my favorite digital camera ever. If you would do a little research about it, I think you would love how it works too, especially if you are into photography or a picture enthusiast. 

Of course, here's what inside the kikay kit, this blog would more have sense if I share what's inside it :) 

to keep my mouth fresh and my after meal mint. and i found that mentos 3d chewing gum funny :D 

My lippies : Matte factor Lip paint. Moulin Rouge Lip and Cheek Tint, and Carmex as always to keep my lips smooth.

faber castel pen , my pearl earrings na waley ng pakaw and mickey mouse sa keychain ko na wala sa bag ko.

Tissue. Colgate Plax. Johnson's Baby Oil, Green Cross Alcohol. I'm using baby oil for my tummy, when I have this scratchy feeling inside I put baby oil to at least avoid the stretch mark I think Ill be having after giving birth. And since I'm frequently visiting my doctor to the hospital, Alcohol should always be in my bag and everywhere I go, I'm using alcohol to sanitize my station and my hands before and after eating. It is not being maselan but if you're pregnant natural lang na maging maselan sa kahit na anong bagay na hahawakan mo because when you're outside or even inside the house there's germs that might harm you.

Pregnant Diaries

Like I said I am a future Mom. But I haven't really shared something about my pregnancy. I am now on my last trimester or 3rd trimester. I just want to share my thoughts , some experience, life of being pregnant in 9 months. I am about to give birth soon as in really sooon. I am a excited how would my baby look like. Last , last week, we had shopping for some baby stuff, something that makes me feel more excited. 

So during my First 3 months, I can tell you that I have this all bad mood, stressed feeling, mood swings that's why I am so thankful that I'm blessed with a partner who's never been tired of understanding me. AMEN. Also I am so lazy to take care of myself I mean prettify myself, I JUST REALLY DON'T KNOW WHY. I'm sad and I feel like "The hell people care how I look like? I'm pregnant! So ganooon. I really don't want to elaborate it further. 

OKAY. So when it comes to my cravings. So I'll be talking about FOOD right now **kilig**  I enjoyed eating Santol, I can eat a kilo of Santol for a day. Yes, I am that matakaw. As in un ang baon ko and then I suddenly craved with sansrival, yakult, frozen yogurt. And I was able to fulfill myself with all the cravings I had because of my very supportive boyfriend. I can't write down all the food I craved about because there's a lot them and besides I am also a foodie, where I do research for food. Cook food , watch Nigella lawson, Jamie Oliver and that fat guy from Man VS. Food And Oh! I found out that , that guy lose weight after resigning to his job. Grabe naman kase, lahat na lang ng masarap kinaen na nya all over the states. 

PAIN. Let's talk about some pains I've an experience where I felt weak and very emotional. By the way thanks to Obimin because after taking those meds and Anmum as milk feeling ko gumaling na yung masasakit na part sa bandang hip. I had a hard time changing my position during sleeping because of that severe pain I felt from my hips and lower hip parang sa "butt" ata yun, I even had a hard time getting up just by myself, I was crying because it's really damn painful. I did some research about it and it says that its just normal. So I'm calm and for me as long as it's normal I'm fine. Right now on my 3rd trimester here's what I think I'm having, 
Sciatica , means This is pain in one or both buttocks that may radiate down one leg. There may also be tingling or numbness in the legs, although this occurs only in a small percentage of women. Sciatica is most likely to occur after the second trimester. And Leg Cramps in the morning Cramps in the legs, particularly in the calf muscles, are a common problem during pregnancy. These occur most commonly at night, but may sometimes come on when walking, and their frequency can increase as your pregnancy advances. I found those answers from this link : "Just click me" So there, I advised to those, that please continue drinking milk and taking your meds for bones and the meds that was prescribed by your doctor for your own fitness and health while you are pregnant. And be more careful with what you eat because, you are not the who's going to suffer later on, but your baby. Eat healthy fruits and veggies **NAKS!** as much as possible **nag advise ang pasaway** Char! And collect all the good thoughts and avoid making puyat. Katulad nian matutulog na ako dapat. 

Anyways. Let me share some photos of my babytumtum. 

Yay! Goodnight!

Happy Saturday at the Beauty Fair IL Terrazzo Mall Timog

Today before going to work, I dropped by at the Beauty fair IL Terrazzo Mall timog. And of course some other girls did  as well especially those make up junkies.

Here's my little haul from the beauty fair that I'm happy to share with :)

Moulin Rouge Lip and Cheek tint from YET Manila - Korean Cosmetics & Skin Care Line 
 note: in fairness to the kid who's helping her mom selling their stuff, is a PRO! She knows a lot better than me, and his daddy said , they're the one who volunteered to come with them.
Brush Guards and Miners Matte factor from  Chic Cosmetics Manila
Look Beauty Fat Lips from Make Up Hub By Naturele Collezione
And as always My Favorite Nyx matte Lipcream from Digital Traincase

Yes, Lippies all mine! Since I'm in a hurry too bad I wasn't able to check brushes from the other shop. And I'm not ready yet to buy make up pallete. And Oh!I just found out that Bettina Carlos was there yesterday with gummy selling cupcakes :(

Goodnight! Hope you had a Happy Saturday too!

I made a surprise for myself and Surprisingly I'm surprise!

When it comes to makeup, there's nothing I know to put on but Lipstick. I love matte lipstick's, Nyx and Revlon are my favorites. But now, I'm learning a lot by reading and watching make up blogs online. I had a few make up before like powder and anything that has a cute packaging :D, because that's how I understand make up. 

After doing a few reviews with some blog out there, here's my recent haul from The Primp Pad. Elf make ups from their site is half way cheaper compare to what I've found from the mall. The transaction is easier and they have earned a lot of clients already. They got easy terms and conditions too unlike  --_--   Anyhow.. My order came this morning after placing my order last week. I was expecting longer than that because of the prebuy items I bought. But yesterday, after they posted the good news on their facebook page **and I was like O_O** I received my package this morning before going to work, that's why I had a HAPPY WEDNESDAY MORNING. Oh dba? lakas makaGoodvibes?!! 

This one is ELF Maximum Coverage Concealer Oil Free - Sand

Wet n Wild Bare It all - It's semi matte, not super dry. My upper lips is darker than my lower lip but maybe because of the matte effect it covers the lip all through out. 

Elf Studio: Contouring blush & Bronzing Powder - Pampapayat ng face ko :) 

Elf Stipple Brush - my first ever stippling brush. I can't review this yet, since this is my first stipple brush but being a rookie its worth it because this only cost p168pesos, and mild xa sa face. I'm looking forward to get more brushes, because when you start putting make up on, that's the time you would realize what type of brushes you need.  

Before I forget this one is from the Face Shop, Design my Eyebrow Lovely me.ex - I don't fix my eyebrow like waxing or threading because feeling ko wala ng matitira kasi manipis lang xa, and this one works really well so far but it won't look like fake or maybe it depends on how you color it. I don't like heavy make up kasi. 

I look forward to buy more brushes and lipsticks and I wanna try the smokey eye make up but wala pa akong palette. But I'll buy soon.

InfiniTea and beyond

I've tried a lot of milk tea's around Metro and it started with Happy Lemon actually. I like their Cocoa Rock Salt and Cheese when i think it is just overrated, it's actually tasted like just Milo. What makes me likes it, is because of the ROCKing SALT and CreamCheese on top of it, and it made me curious how it was made **I can claim here that I'm a Food Enthusiast, A food lover and all** OKAY. So this milk tea became a trend, after coffee shop's like starbucks, coffee bean, seattle's best etc. you name it! So milk tea shop had popped out everywhere too kahit don sa may palengke namen meron din, its just a counter type stall, no dine in, but you can sit while waiting for your order and I became friend with the owner, because I became their frequent customer. So there, part of loving milk tea, I am simply thrilled with their simple treats, like planner or any kind of freebies they have.

Here's my latest favorite. InfiniTea Milk tea, I saw that they have a lot of branches like in Cubao, West Ave, St. Francis square in ortigas, and in Banawe where I used to hang out because, I lurrve the cozy ambiance they have not to mention the fast and free WIFI I wasn't able to shoot some photo's but you can check it from their facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Infinitea-N-Roxas-Banawe-Branch/502876346425817 . I've tried most of what they have, like what I have in the picture: that was Taro and Vanilla Ice . Those that are not in the picture that I've tried was Strawberry Oreo Frappe,Dark Chocolate Raspberry Frappe, and Mango yogurt slush and its one of my favorite. I can only try their non milk-tea options because I'm pregnant. But I heard that their Golden Dragon Milk tea is one of their best sellers, and of course the most famous Wintermelon. Nothing special about the packaging, but aside from their variety of flavors available, the taste is still a bit different, that's why I like it so much.

What's hot in the store right now is what they called the Caramel Macchiato Collection, I know you heard the word Macchiato at starbucks first. But they have it in here too, in fact they got a Promo Card that you may get thrilled, because you can get this Throw Pillow that looks like their Logo after completing the 10 stamps. Sorry wasn't able to take the picture. I tried first their Salted Dark cocoa, the salted cream on top is just a salted cream lang talaga they don't have the rock salt and cheese because they have their own flavor and originality and they got a lot of flavors from the Menu from fruit juices, hot cups etc. 

Thing's I'm loving now... <3

By the way this is not a sponsored blog. I'm just a foodie.

Don't judge the girl by "What's in her bag".

My own version of "what's in your bag" from cosmo.ph :) 

This may share a bit about my personality. Please don't judge the girl by "What's in her bag" . In this picture I have: Wade Shoes, Tory burch wallet (fake), Card Organizer, Egg pouch, Olay all day moisturizer, Rayban shades from farmers cubao, Hello Kitty coin purse, Skittles & Nerds candies, checkered pouch (gift), Lipstick (imported, gift I forgot its name) Nyx Lipstick Soft Matte Lip Cream, Polka dot Yellow socks from landmark, Red screened pouch, Mcdo ampao, Movie ticket, earplugs, tissue, my blackberry. 

Inside the red screened pouch I have: Band aid, Rio mints colgate tootpaste, efficascent oil, Maybelline lipstick, gucci pink lipstick i bought from tiangge, meds, huge nail cutters, fine tech pen, mighty bond, key holder. 

Inside the Egg pouch I have: Carmex Lip Balm, Herbench lip & cheek tint, hygieniex, Nyx Matt Lipstick. 

By the way I want to share how this Nyx matte lipstick works for me. I first tried their Sau Paulo Nyx soft matte lip cream and even my friends likes it too, because it stays longer when I let them try mine. I bought it from digital traincase. Unfortunately It's already empty and I wasn't able to blog about it. I like matte lipsticks and this nyx product really makes me happy. So I had another one, Nyx Matte Lipstick Angel I bought it from the same store. 

There you go Bellas! ♥ 

Grocery List

I'm doing now our menu for the week. Before, when I was still single or we are not living together yet, I'm not planning much about food for the week, but its totally different now. I am now with someone I should care, like what I've mention from my previous post, future housewives and being housewife are like another career. 

To help myself to think what food to prepare for the entire week, It is better to list down everything. Especially before going to the supermarket. It is also better to schedule the grocery day during his and your rest day's and have him help you out. His suggestion also matters so you know what he needs and likes. So he would also know or at least have an idea, what you both are spending for. It is a great bonding as well as young adult. 

Going back..
Everyday, I need to prepare for our Breakfast, Baon or Lunch, it depends on our work schedule for the day. As much as possible, I cook healthy food. When I say healthy, it shouldn't be a canned/processed/instant food despite the short time I have to prepare in the morning. So fruits and bread are always on the list. To help myself to go further for my Menu for the week. I always go visit http://www.yummy.ph/ and 
http://www.delmonte.ph/  and check the recipe's they have, most of them are easy to prepare. 

Here are my picks: 

Arroz la Cubana
Creamy Beef Rice Topping

You can check all these recipe's from this site: http://www.yummy.ph/features/finds/details/10-rice-topping-recipes

Muffin by Gardenia

We use to have Gardenia bread its either wheat or the Plain one. I like its taste even without a spread or anything.. CHAR ! Syempre mas masarap parin yung may palaman kahit butter lang then i-toast mo or make it french toast then spoil it with maple syrup and butter. I found out this Gardenia Muffins from saab's blog. During my break time at work I was able to sneak at the supermarket to get something for our breakfast for the next morning, that's what I usually do, that's a good practice din for being a good housewife :) Yes! Kina-Career din un talaga. Anyway, And I found these Gardenia Muffins she's talking about that its surprisingly yummy daw! I bought Chocolate and Chocolate banana Flavor and it only cost P19/pack. This is good as pambaon or if you are in a morning rush. Number 1 rule for me is, I should not let my boyfie leave for work without having breakfast. If he's running late, I at least give him cupcake,a fruit like apple/orange or a bar of chocolate and then  I'm all Good. 


My first impression was, it looks like the kabayan bread which is known to our suking bakery or kung naalala mo yung movie ni Gerald Anderson and Kim Chui - Paano na Kaya, there's a scene there na si-nurprise nia si Gerald ng kabayan bread kase favorite ni Gerald yun sa movie. Basta yun na yung naalala ko, antagal na kc nun, there's this line in the movie na hindi ko makalimutan kc ni-record ko pa sa phone q. Anyhow, going back to the Muffins! I tried first chocolate muffin. And it's chocolatier just how I like. It is soft not dry, not that sweet and it has a chocolate filling inside that you would appreciate if you are into chocolates or any kind of sweets. And it's fresh because it is packed with so much air inside the packaging.

I really want you to feel what I'm saying here, so i took some photo's while I'm eating it.

 See? :) 

My first post as a Foodie :) Muffin.

Happy Shower with Olay

                                                                                Blog post from FB February 24, 2013 

It's my favorite bath soap. It smells really good, relaxing and I feel gorgeous after a bath because of its glittery effect that stays on the skin for like 2 hours or more than that. I didn't able to notice it the first time and I just  thought I lie somewhere that has glitters and until I realized that it's from the Soap! I was able to use a couple of containers of this for like a year or so, and this is my last pair of containers I scored somewhere random convenience store, because the "Olay lady" I consulted at the Department store says, that Olay phase out the product, I don't know why and they don't know it too, maybe one of you are familiar with this, because they're selling this as Buy 1 Take 1 so its way cheaper from the other. There's this blog I visited a long time ago and I found it in the picture and I asked her where she got it, She said that it's a gift from a friend and she received a box of em' O_O and I was so jealous, I hope Olay will put this back in the market and also the Facial Wash Total Effects its worth expensive but its worth to buy.. 

So there's the story... Happy shower!

Nivea Soft Moisturising Cream

It says that it's for FACE l BODY l HANDS wherever-- It's the regular size and it cost around P160 in a very small container. It moisturizes my face and it leaves a glowing effect, I just don't like it in its first few minutes after application because its oily but then after that in a cold environment (in my working place) that's where the perfect effect coming out, its glowing and shining which more liked it. So there! But maybe on summer days Imma ditch it with some other brands, I won't be using it during sunny days because it's too mild and creamy.. I'm using OLAY all day moisturizer for daylight. I'm using it during the night and before to go to sleep. 

So here what I have left in the container after a couple of weeks using it, I think I can still use this for the next 3 months... and that's what you call SAVINGS!

( This post was from my FB account posted last February 24, 2013  )

My September

I'm a blogspot newbie, I realized that there's nothing to shy about the things I wan to share, So This is my first ever entry
As I mentioned in Facebook account last week , I need to change some of the products I am using so my  baby in my tummy will be safe. There are some ingredients from other products that would harm my baby so I kept them and might use them after the pregnancy stage. So for now. These are the products I chose. 
Last week, we went to Landmark Trinoma where I used to buy my toiletries and groceries, and most of the brands I'm using for hygiene concerns is cheaper and its always on the shelf, plus the sales ladies roaming around is always willing to help, for your skin concerns and etc.

In the picture: Nivea Soft Moisturizer, Ponds Detox Lotion, NEW Johnsons baby cooling lotion, FreeMan barefoot shea butter Heel & Callus Balm peppermint & plum, Green Cross Alcohol

Nivea Soft : I'm using this every night before sleeping. Although, this is not suitable for my skin type. I just learned that, for Oily skin, it is better to use water based formula. This one is not water based I just like the moisture and soft cheeks I have every morning and I suggest everyone to use this during winter or cold weather to avoid dry skin.

Ponds Detox Lotion: Ponds are now having variety products that may suit on your skin type. I picked this one because its water based. I've been using this for a week and I like how it works on my face. I am applying this as a day moisturizer, and I am now seeing the result where it gives me a brighter face, unlike before. 

Johnson's Baby cooling gel lotion: I was using Johnson's baby Lotion but I replaced it with this, its mild and it doesn't have the sticky feeling after application. We have this crazy weather here, thunderstorms and sometimes it is really hot where it will burn your skin. As far as I know I'm not allowed to use sunblock because I am pregnant, but I think this lotion is fine, It really has its COOLING EFFECT and at the same time it moisturizes my skin and most of all I smell like a baby :)

In the Picture: Johnson's baby bath milk, NEW TRESemm'e Shampoo (black) Conditioner (white) 

Johnson's baby milk bath: Like I said I want to smell like a baby, I've been using this ever since, it is my primary body soap. I was using Olay before, and I have a short blog about it. I will soon post it in here as well.  

TRESemmee' Shampoo and Conditioner: Those were the trial pack it cost P89 , I heard this from my officemate that it is nice to use. And I agree, you would feel the difference right after use and my boyfie also agreed that it works well since we are both using it, It removes the clay in his hair.  So after finishing this little containers, I already bought the bigger size which cost around P240 for 440 ml and hoping the frizzy-ness of my hair will be cured. I have this wavy hair by the way. It says that it has Vitamin H and Silk Proteins, if you're familiar with that. Next time I'll go try the one that it has Keratin. I tried to use Sunsilk for hair therapy and it has keratin that calms down my hair. So I think that will work on my hair too.

Ponds no blackheads:  I've been using this for a week, I like how it works with the Ponds Detox moisturizer I'm using. I'm washing my face every night before sleep and during bath in the morning. It gives my face a glowing effect and so far its preventing the blackheads. It has beads/scrub and brownish color because it says from the tube that it has "volcanic clay". 


Lucky Blue Ice Gel:  This was given by my mom and this is best for Pain Muscles, and it smells like vicks. Before or months ago, after having an intense workout like boxing or "core exercises" as how my trainer call it. I always have this body pain (of course) . This really works as a temporary pain reliever. 

Free Man Bare Foot:  I love foot massage, and Peppermint is my favorite scent, everytime I visit a Nail Spa this is always been my pick from their options. During the pregnancy my feet get easily tired in a short hour of standing like cooking, short window shopping. Do not expect much from this, it is just a lotion that would soften the heels temporarily, I'm using this every night for bed.  And this is cheaper compared to the other brands it costs P179.98? something like that.
