With the holiday parties I'm sure you all have lined up, in this post I'll be sharing with you my favorite holiday make up look and how to re-create it.

My De’Longhi Christmas Wishlist

Hi everyone!

Are you one of those types of people who love shopping for your home or looking at home decor/appliances? I am. I love dreaming up my ideal home and looking for things I'd love to have in it. I recently came across the brand De'Longhi which sells innovative kitchen appliances. Browsing their products on Concept Specialist’s website, I've been really impressed with a number of their products - some of which I'd like to share with you.


1. Dehumidifier DNC 65 - As an asthmatic, my lungs are sensitive to the type of air I breathe. Things like dust and mold, which grow in warm and humid environments, can easily constrict my breathing and trigger an attack. Having a dehumidifier in my home would greatly reduce the proliferation of these allergens and would lessen my asthmatic episodes. This one from De'Longhi features three levels of dehumidification power, noiseless operation, an antibacterial filter, a swing function, and an electronic shut off timer up to 8 hours - among other great features. This one's a must have for me!



2. Fully Auto Coffee Machine - Who loves coffee? I sure do! This coffee machine (model ECAM 44.660.B / Eletta Cappuccino) is so absolutely perfect for me that I wish I could just take it from the computer screen. It can be used with both ground coffee and coffee beans, can prepare various types of coffee drinks at the touch of a button (cappuccino, latte, macchiato), has an automatic cleaning function for milk carafe system and can already prepare two cups of coffee in one brewing cycle! These are just a few of this machine's amazing features and I'm already in love. This is a must have for those who like to personalize their coffee, with the ease of pushing a button (like me basically). This would definitely make mornings less stressful and drinking coffee just so much more fun! 



3. Low-oil Fryer & Multicooker Multifry - I don't like cooking very much. I'm afraid of getting hit by frying oil. Judge me all you want but you can't deny that stuff hurts. I usually prefer to bake or do any sort of cooking that does not involve getting attacked by oil. That said, this Multifry is practically heaven sent! Not only does it make cooking easier, but I won't be splashed by oil! ;) The Multifry features a recipe selector knob with pre-set programs (potatoes, pizza, cake, stew) and 3 special programs (pan function, oven function, grill function). It has a (removable) mixing paddle, and its bowl is non-stick and has anti-scratch ceramic coating. The walls are cool to touch so you don't accidentally burn yourself and has a digital control panel. I find this really innovative and useful in the kitchen, especially for someone like me :)



What do you think? Aren't these products amazing? Have you tried anything from De'Longhi? Let me know about it in the comments!

Shop Globally with Uskoop

Hi Everyone!

In recent years, online shopping has steadily grown grown in popularity as it opens new windows for consumers to buy products. There are many options nowadays to buy products online (especially ones we can't get here!), however I think we can agree that we are still sometimes at a disadvantage. Some sites sell the products at such high rates that you're turned off from buying the product. Also, we can't shop from sites that do not deliver to our home country. Another issue would be computing for the taxes and other fees that come with buying a product internationally. It's such a headache, and I'd rather not have to deal with that.

But what if I told you of a website that lets you shop from US merchant stores, computes the fees from you AND delivers the product straight to you? This is the service offered by USKOOP PH.

Uskoop PH (website: https://www.uskoop.com.ph/) is a one-stop shopping-and-shipping service that also takes care of shipping, customs & taxes with insurance. When you order via Uskoop, the price they give is inclusive of ALL charges so you know the full price you pay. Uskoop then delivers your package to your doorstep anywhere in the Philippines via air in 10-15 business days. You can order from different US online stores with a single checkout! No need to pay US Sales Tax and no need to use a US shipping Address. You won't need to worry about credit card acceptance outside your home country since Uskoop offers multiple payment options. Uskoop PH takes care of everything. You just have to  choose your products and Uskoop will take care of everything from buying to shipping to your address to customer service and post-sale support. Amazing isn't it?

I tried out the site by visiting online shops like Amazon, Walmart, Nordstrom and even Tory Burch just to show you guys a glimpse of how it works. These are products I would definitely consider buying via Uskoop's services.

Hey Everyone!

Are you thinking: "Another Empties series?!" Well yes, I filled up another bag with stuff I've used up and I knew it was time for another blog series on this. Bear with me lol.



We're starting this one off with Hair and the "Etcetera-s" to ease us in, as the other categories have a lot more products. Ready?
