Braces,.. again!

I'm sporting braces again! I had it on when I was in college. Had it removed right after graduation. My teeth were aligned already. Till Y2006 my wisdom tooth started to come out little by little, pushing my teeth on both side to slide forward. It overlapped my front teeth and started to push it inward. Gets? hehe, here's my teeth would look like on pics..
Camwhoring before sleep

Well, each day I feel my teeth is moving, it's getting worse, I know the feeling already of the teeth moving coz of my braces before. I was hesitant at first and wanted to back-out but i made a down payment already during my consultation. It reminded me of my experience before. I always have mouth sores due to allergy on the metal of the braces. So I always put wax as barrier. Brushing teeth is tedious than the usual. It was painfull, sometimes rubber is attached connecting the lower brace to upper brace so it restricts mouth opening. Rubber on braces often snaps-off, brackets detached from the tooth enamel, in short it was agony. I never understand why some (majority of) people find braces as sosyal (high-class). I hated it, i just got used to it. Pictures sometimes are ugly too, its like my teeth were dark.

Anyweys, I have to or else my teeth will get worse,. My allergies tamed down, some are gone already. I've worst case allergy even when I was a child. To name a few: Dust, metals other than gold, and chlorine in our tap water! Yes, every after bath I have red patches all aver my face and body. It was hella itchy. I've used emollient soaps (like dove and caress) and mild soaps (like J&J and Ivory) but I'm still all red. But now I can wear silver and fashion earrings (and Im chlorine tolerant as well) so hopefully i wont get allergic reaction on my braces anymore.

So here's me camwhoring the moment I got home. Need to practice my smile too for a nice angle. Make-up needs modification too. It made my already pouty lips look bigger so no lipgloss for me from now on.

Here's me now,.. sporting green eyeshadow..

Enjoy the long weekend ladies,...

The hostage drama that recently happened to our dear country was really heart breaking,.

I cant help but react too on some comments I've been reading on polls and Facebook,. So I just wanna repost my Facebook shoutout,...

Quite a many people are calling "Where's PNOY on this hostage drama, why didn't he stand at Luneta to make negotiation end",. C'mon it's not a president's job to negotiate with this crazy person,. Comparable to chess board game, ang KING ay hindi ipinapain sa Pawns,.

Many people are also condoning the PNPs on how crappy they handled the situation. At the end of it all I still commend them for not thinking the same way as some commentators think,. Open fire and throw teargas to end the hostage taker's drama. Had they done that no one would have survived.

Wala daw kwenta ang SWAT natin, kulang sa training,. blame that on the previous administration. Puro corruption ang ipinamanang value sa lahat ng sangay ng ating pamahalaan. I cannot blame them. I pity them instead, I hope our soldiers and policemen get the right training they need and deserve to hopefully allow them to serve our country better. As PNOY said, lets do everything PARA SA PAGBABAGO. I did not vote for him last election, but since he's there already, I give him my support and pray that he will really lead our country the better way...

I still have high hopes for our country. Kaya kung sama-sama..

Shopaholic strikes back!

The second quarter of the year is about to end. I will end it again with big smile on my face after all my birthday month is in this quarter. Here's my major haul, that I will claim my gifts for my birthday...

Im not a shoe person, whether their cheap or ubber expensive, I buy them so long as I like them. That's one reason too why I dont post shoe hauls (as well as dresses). This one caught my attention. I find them really nice, that is worth sharing. From the Trunk show..

Love the red lining, very Louboutin like,..

Louis Vuitton Neverfull Azur.. I've sleepless nights coz of this (I've nice problems huh!). My mind was in chaos thinking which one to get, the ebene or the azur. Azur won coz I have speedy in ebene already, but i still swear to get the ebene, next year perhaps!

Coach suddenly struck me, same as with Juicy Couture. But I decided to get coach first. This is a nice top handle bag that can be converted to hobo...

that is when you detach the ring on the side..

when the strap is attached

I know I gave up my lemmings for Liz claiborne and nine west bags, but this one sure did caught yet again my attention.. a hand held bag that can be carried as shoulder bag too

Amazingly Liz Claiborne's style has evolved from black basic/classic office essential bags, which shouts boring to some, to a colorful more stylish designs that can now cater the young hippie genre.

Another bag that gave me headache... a Longchamp, I dont like the basic solid colors, I went for this design.. A little expensive than the plain ones but is totally worth it. I find it stunning in person,..

The skinfood... got two make-up remover, one toner and one face serum,, review to follow..

Hopefully this closes my 2nd quarter haul,. Though Im eyeing one in Fino,.. sobb...

We all have trying times, but looking at all these blessings, that I can afford a little luxury make my life better.. Look at the brighter side after all!..

Till here, tata for now!..

Prepping Curly Locks

As I've mentioned in my previous entry, curly locks needs extra prepping. So here's what I use to keep my curls intact, soft and bouncy.

First, I changed my shampoo and conditioner to Sunsilk Style curls and wave bounce.

With beeswax and curl energizers to giv permed hair a well defined and bouncy curls and waves.


A little hard to find on stores, always out of stock. Nweys, these smells sweet, and makes hair soft. I tried these sans other styling products, the result is big curls like those of beach babes.


A bodifying aqua-mousse. Gives root-lift, volume while keeping it light. With Incell and pearl proteins to repair and reinforce sensitized hair fibers while Vitamin E acetate protects hair.

Really good in holding small curls. Hair feels light but a little stiff, no wet look here. gives natural finish on hair.

NOTE: I just put it on curls (end) if I want a loose curls otherwise smother it on entire hair, root to tips to achieve super curly hair Taylor Swift style.



I choose this coz my hair is colored as well, I put this prior the mousse to lend a healthy radiance to my hair. I use a lot to achieve wet look, less puffy and small super tight curls. True to claim it does prevent hair from static and freeze. I think this is necessary coz I tried using mousse alone, the result - curls intact, freezy big hair - that's only good for casual days like, mall, beach etc. but for office, I need to tame down the volume.

So there its 2 additional routine as compared to my wash and wear straight hair, but its all worth it.

My curls

Been sporting medium to long straight hair for more than ten years. So I opted for a change. Here's how my hair looks the night before my perm

My new curls,. I had it digipermed at Simon Kim salon. Why him? It's cheaper there compared to other korean salons,. tehhee,.

Two weeks after... (pardon the dark spots, just had my warts removal)

Three weeks after,.
Everyday is like different curl style,. depends on how i scrunch and twist it, or whether I comb my hair or not.

What I love with curl do, is that i dont have to comb my hair the entire day. My friends knows me well for not combing my hair throughout the day, so this complements me. Special care is needed for curl do, it may be wash and wear, but prepping time takes longer, I think I'll make a separate post about that. Hair tends to freeze so anti-freeze serum is a must,. But over all I love it! shorter hair indeed, but is suits the hot weather nowadays..

A last look of my long locks,. it will be missed,. tehhee,..

Vanilla and Company Experience

Finished a few tubs of Vanilla & company products and here's my take:



Pure Shea & Seaweed Whipped Butter - A seaweed wrap in the likes of an Indonesian Bali spa to a jar of our famous whipped Shea butters. The lush mixture of 20% Mango Butter, Wild-harvested Seaweed, and our 30% Shea Butter base leaves your skin young, firm, and ready to show off!GREASE FREE


I love the smell! so milky addicting. Absorbs in the skin fast. Really non- greasy. It is however not enough for my ubber dry skin. Still gets white patches and flakes. This is great for people with normal skin. Great for summer i dont feel sticky. What i do is put body oil first then slather this on. This makes me smell so yummy. Smell lasts longer than my usual lotions. Im addicted!

PURE SHEA AND COCOA WHIPPED BUTTER in chocolate and hazelnut


Pure Shea & Cocoa Whipped Butter - The epitome of our riches! A whipped mixture of 30% Shea Butter, 20% Theobroma Cacao Butter, and Amazonian Nut oil will provide the ultimate nutrition for dry skin. Proven helpful for lightening those stretch marks. Truly an ultra-rich body butter you won't want to share!GREASE FREE


Better in terms of moisturizing, without the greasy feel. Though still not enough for me, layering it with oil again will do the trick. Again the smell is heaven! Can't choose which scent i like better


With 100% pure & natural Buttermilk powder, it will literally melt in your skin, leaving a slightly thick cream that will effectively promote skin lightening and softening.
Directions:For the body: Spread on damp skin, massage until thick and creamy. Rinse with water or with any V&Co. Body Wash.For the face: Pour on hand, adding a bit of water to make it creamy. Massage on face in circular motion. You may also add Honey to make skin softer. Rinse thoroughly with water.Bath tub: Pour desired amount on running water. Allow ButterMilk powder to dissolve before soaking whole body. Rinse thoroughly with water.
Result: Skin tone is lighter and skin is smoother. It will leave skin smelling like creamy milk.
Note: Clumping might occur during application but allow it to melt in your skin as you massage. It is ideal to leave the melted buttermilk on your skin for a good minute or two, perfect for use on face and body everyday. Always shake bottle before use for easy dispensing.
Used this everyday when I was on almost a month of vacation from office.
It feels like mild scrubbing for me. Melts on skin though i didn't gt the creamy texture but rather a fine grainy feel, similar of that with cornstarch. Milky smell is addicting as usual. I dont have honey so wasn't able to try pair it with this. Stings my face the first time I used it, but didn't felt anything on the third or fourth time using it. Skin feels smooth and so clean. The scent got washed off though. But left my bathroom smelling milky sweet.
Mild enough to use everyday. As to whitening, I didn't noticed any dramatic result, just brightens skin. I think this works gradually, and so I need a few tubs more. But this makes bathing a wonderful experience, sad to say now that I'm back at work i dont have the luxury of bathing time, always am in a hurry. I will miss this baby,.


We took advantage of Grapeseed oil that is packed with vitamins yet so light it absorbs immediately into the skin. The added Bearberry extract whitens and improves uneven skin tones. Exfoliation is enhanced with Mediterranean Sea salt and cane sugar crystals while the mild warming effect of our unique formula means it cleanses deeply into your skin's surface, leaving no room for clogged pores. Crystal-scrub your neck, your arms, your legs, and your feet for super-touchable skin!
Suggested Usage: Use twice to thrice a week. Follow with your favorite Vanilla &Co. Whipped Buttercream Body Butter or Moisturizing Lotion.
Scent: Posh Strawberry
For: Dry to normal skin Result: Polished skin and unclogged pores
FAST FACTS:Grapeseed Oil is a preferred cosmetic ingredient for damaged and stressed tissues, possessing regenerative and restructuring qualities which allow a better control of skin moisturization. It is noted to be especially effective for skin repair. It can also help skin retain the normal structure of epithelium cells and nerve cells by supporting the cell membranes. And since Grapeseed Oil contains more linoleic acid than any other carrier oils, GRAPESEED OIL is known to REDUCE the look of stretch marks.
Tough scrubbing indeed, the way a salt scrub should be without the salty aroma but rather a sweet fruity scent. Its moisturizing, leaves skin a thin oily film while skin is wet this might freak out those who are not used with oils or heavy lotions but when airdried, the oil gets absorbs just like body oils. You'll find absolutely no streak of oil in skin. Again this is for gradual whitening no instant result here. The only thing I dislike here is the pink coloring that is left on skin. I end up with pink spots/dots all over. I gives pinkish blush to skin too so this is great for pale people.
Overall my Vanilla & co experience was great, I'd love to try other products once Im done with my hauls with other brand,.

Major Haul

The bag addict me ended the first quarter of the 2010 with big smile on my face.

The bags I'm lemming (and got them!)....

A Lacoste beach bag

Love that it's sooo spacious! I can stuff 3-4 days volume of clothes.

Another Lacoste bag, errr, Im not good in names, I just remember the look and style..

There's two version of this, the clip on and zippy.. chose the clip on, I think it's got more attitude..

LV speedy 30.. Speedy 25 i think is small for me while the 35 is big already,. been lemming for this for so long, finally bought it..

and a whilshire boulevard in rose pop

Ladies, haven't been updating my site this 2010, see the PC where I store all the pics for blogg review is usually down,. Im lazy to repeat their photoshoot. Anyweys, this past weeks was crazy busy too. Finalizing our bazaar which by the way didn't turn quit nice. See there's this one person who reserved 4 boots for her to rent. On the day of the ingress she kept texting that her SAs are on their wat and that they were stuck in traffic. Then, a no show! We suspect one person who did it. By her wordings on text, etc., anyweys, Karma to the bitch! Seriously, what she did was so bad! We mean business here and we dont mess with others.. Some people just play real dirty!

To add up spice of work-bazaar closing duties, i go to the hospital. My uncle was sick,. I was crying for like two days. I haven't got a good sleep for 3 nights either. I was like a walking zombie at work,. will do my work, what's been told to do,. and that's it. Co-workers will come up to me and say my eyes are so swollen,. But praise God he recovered! I prayed hard for a miracle and He gave it! Still get teary eyed when I remember that. Two lessons I got from this, It is your family who will be there for you when things go soooo bad,. Not your so-called friends who's only there with you in times of socializing! Another thing, know the person really well, they may be good, jolly, bubbly on the facade, but evil lies beneath,.

So there,. I've got four more bag lemmings,. a longchamp, another lacoste (as usual i dont know the name), a neverfull and a hampstead. Not in a hurry to get all of them coz that will burn my wallet. but I know I'll get them...

tata for now!,.

Heatwave Bazaar

Our 3rd event, so far,. Once again I'm inviting bazaaristas to join us in this wonderful event,.

Date of Event: March 24-26, 2010

Place: PNB Finacial Center Building, Buendia Lobby - P. Diosdado Macapagal Blvd Pasay City (Beside World Trade Center).

Human Heart and Nature

Human Heart and nature is one of the most raved organic products in the forum that I was reading. And so I tried the coveted Shampoo and conditioner..
The Strenghtening Shampoo

I love that it's organic, leaves hair squeaky clean, hard strands that's hard to comb. Conditioner is really a must!
The Nourishing Conditioner:


Leaves hair soft and smooth. I love that my hair was less oily unlike with the commercial product. It leaves hair naturally bouncy, with less volume, hair is shiny and "bagsak."
Unfortunately this combo gives me the worst dandruff ever. I've finished the bottle hoping my scalp will get used to it, but it didn't. I had to let it go. I love my hair with this, but my scalp was hella itchy.

The Organic cleanser/Make up remover

Beautiful skin starts with a BEE! Honey is an all-in-one skin saver - an excellent moisturizer, rich in anti-oxidants and Vit. C. This cream serves as double purpose: a moisturizer and a gentle make-up remover to keep your skin soft and clean without the irritation.
The instruction says massage a button-sized amount for face and eye-area but I ended up using more. Can be tissued-off or rinse with water either it won't leave skin an oily film.
Unfortunately, again it doesn't do the job good in removing eye make-up and under eye concealer the way Nivea cleansing milk do. But i keep it on my dresser for weekend use, wherein i don't use make-up and I stayed too late in front of my PC that I don't wanna rinse my face anymore before heeding sleep.
It doesn't irritate skin at all. Overall the cocoa butter, beeswax , goat's milk powder, dark honey, bee propolis and vitamin E as its main ingredient makes it a cleanser that's jam-packed with anti-oxidant and will surely do good on your skin, unless of course if you have allergies with any of its ingredient.
