Pick me up: Chewy Graham Bars

Hi Everyone!

The past few days have had me feeling lazy and distracted. I can't seem to get myself to sit and write. It could be the weather, my hormones or perhaps my lack of sleep the past week - but whatever it is, it sure is making sure that I'm a procrastinating bum.

Usually when I feel like this, I usually look for sweet things to try and get my energy up. My colleague then introduced me to these delicious Chewy Graham Bars by the baking momma.

Doesn't that look delicious? These treats are the perfect blend of sweet and chewy, great for satisfying those cravings! It's not only topped with marshmallows, but it has marshmallow filling as well.

 Who else here loves marshmallows??
Usually when I'm hungry, these manage to tame my tummy without ruining my appetite.Those who aren't fond of sweets however, might not be able to consume a lot of these. My mom ate one and liked it, but didn't want to eat another because she said it was sweet :/ My sister on the o…

The Body Shop Haul

Hi Everyone!

The Body Shop is currently celebrating it's 19th birthday/anniversary with a big sale! Naturally, I had to drop by :) I was able to pick up a few things while I was there.

Shower Gel got all bubbly when I dropped it accidentally lol

Moringa Soap and Shea Soap These two soaps came as a set that was only P190, which is normally the cost of one bar of soap. I really love their Shea scent! 

Apple Blossom Shower Gel I got the 200ml size for only P135! Such a steal since it's normally P400+ so I bought one for myself and for boyfriend (whom I've recently converted to the wonders of shower gel)

Color Crush Eye Shadow in Blackcurrant Affair This was only P179 from P595! Such a crazy discount, I couldn't resist picking this one up. Even if god knows I have way too many eye shadows, especially purple ones.
Vitamin C Microdermabrasion Now, this wasn't on sale at P95, but I decided to pick this up out of curiosity! I've stuck to using my St Ives Apricot Scrub for s…

My Favorite Spring/Summer Eye Shadows (Neutrals)

Hi Everyone!
I have always been a fan of darker colors, both with fashion choices and with makeup. I love a good grey eye shadow just as much as I love my black tops (which I have way too many of).
But for this season, I'm switching it up by going for lighter colors on my lids. With the sweltering heat of Manila, I actually don't like wearing a lot of makeup during the summer months. But when I feel like wearing eye shadow, I choose neutral shades to keep my makeup look fresh.
Below are my top picks for neutral eye shadows for Spring/Summer:

NYX Adorable Shadow Palette A palette of six eye shadows that can create either a nude day look or a natural smokey night look. I love the light brown shade! It's the type of color that isn't noticeable but definitely makes you look a bit more put together.
Wet N Wild Eye Shadow Trio in Walking on Eggshells Palette of 3 eye shadows that are perfect for a natural make up look - my personal fave! That bottom shade is a dupe for MAC…

It's almost my birthday...


My Current Holy Grail Hair Products

Hi Everyone!

I haven't cut my hair in 2 and a half years. I know, super cray and isn't my hair a dry mess yet? Well, it sort of is and I need to have a haircut soon. (Or I probably will have already cut my hair when this post goes live). But in the meantime, let me share with you the products I've been using to keep my mane under control (ish).

Lucido-L Night Treatment Oil (Perm) A leave on overnight treatment for permed hair to maintain curls. Okay, let's get this straight. I don't have permed hair, I have naturally wavy hair. But I got this in my BDJbox last Jan/Feb, so I thought I would use it since I have curls anyway. It makes my hair less dry, so I'm quite happy with it.
Patene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner (Total Damage Control) Repairs brittle and damaged hair. This conditioner has the most amazing smell EVER. I can't emphasize how good this thing smells. Also, I can agree it definitely works miracles. My hair is super smooth and silky after using this…
