Simple Joys...

Yay! today my beauty blender came from!
My 2nd batch of beauty blender! I ♥ them. addicted!

I love this BENCH Aromatheraphy alcogel hand sanitizer ! It's addicting!

I realized I haven't been blogging about some product reviews since I started this blog of last January 2011. Mainly to post about my work, my raves and everything in between...

Beauty Blender:
This sponge is the best one I have ever used. It is great for blending concealer especially for blending around areas like your eyes & nose. I've been hearing this from other make-up addicts & beauty blogs but I figured it's just a hype. The price point is a little intimidating for a piece of eggshell sponge. Who would buy for a piece of eggshell sponge for the price point of $20USD or Php1,500/piece? but after having used it for a few months, I believe the excellent quality makes it a good value.

It's washable, re-useable and recyclable. It's latex free and anti-microbial. Can be used with all types of make up; liquid base, cream base, mineral make up, cream blush, powders etc. Use Beauty blender damp or dry.Please note-- Beauty blender will expand when wet and overtime the pink color of the sponge will fade depends how frequent you use it. Application tip: Stipple or "bounce" Beauty blender when applying your make up for a flawless finish

BENCH Aromatheraphy Alcogel Hand sanitizer:
I'm just too addicted to  BENCH Aromatherapy Hand sanitizer why? here are few reasons why...
  • Mainly, It just smells so good!
  • Cheap and convenient!
  • It doesn't feel sticky like other hand sanitizers yet it moisturizes! 
♥ Best,

The Elegance of the Hedgehog

The Elegance of the Hedgehog - Muriel Barbery

French novel: tender and satirical in its overall tone, yet most absorbing because of its reflections on the nature of beauty and art, the meaning of life and death.

It's been a somber week especially with the monsoon typhoons we've been having in addition with the long weekend holiday all together. While there's not much to do on a holiday... no work, commercial establishments are closed, having crappy weather and most people are spending their long weekends somewhere else, I'm stuck in Manila. So, I started to dig out into my old junk and I stumbled upon this book that I bought ages ago but was pushed into my pile of storage while I was having my room renovated last year.

I realized amidst my boredom and rotting brain that I will do some reading...

Berocca is my lifeline since Friday! Better than any vitamin C + gatorade combined! Keeping me sane with my runny nose & sore-throat. I been chugging on 4000mg of vitamin c and this works wonders!!! I'm addicted!

Yesterday's shoot was very interesting. I was called for a grooming job. As I entered my subject's "la casa"-- like normal household most people would have birds, dogs or a cat for a pet. Indeed, my subject have a "cat" pet chained at their  front door entrance laying down nonchalantly!!! Afraid!

"Ze stylists" Mike & George steaming their pullouts

Subject's shoe collection... leather shoes made of ostrich skin.
