I've been meaning to buy new scents for summer because I wanna make this season memorable and to make that happen, a special scent is indeed needed. I was eyeing the Love Signature from Penshoppe which is around Php500.00 but fortunately, I bumped into a crazy sale at the department store of market market! A buy one take one deal nonetheless!
What I got?
Shirley May fragrances!
This is my first time to hear and try fragrances from Shirley May and as fortunate as it can be, the Shirley May's Water Drops smell like Penshoppe's Love Signature! OMG! I intended to buy two 50ml of the same scent until I smell Starlet - that made me take one of each! ;)
Water Drops hits that soft young spot in my heart, it reminds me of my high school days as it smells just like Hearts by Avon (which is the sole reason why I'm eyeing the love signature at the first place) - that sadly has been discontinued. Water drops smells of freedom, carefree life, and full of adventure kind of forever.
Starlet on the other hand reminds me of bright lights and slowmo heart drumming music with electric eye connection to that somebody on the dance floor or a conservative private dinner date with holding hands in between a thornless red rose. It's sweet and romantic for a more intimate moment. Hello couple's summer retreat!
The bottles are made of thick glass, shaped like long gowns, with caps made of cheap plastic - which is forgivable as I don't really mind throwing the caps off to fit this to my purse. Cute and girly, these affordable fragrances were only Php398.00! It's a steal!
My precious all-in-one shoulder bag from Kimbel is suffering from overloading and it’s all worn-out. I knew in my heart that I had to let it go, that I am badly in need of a backpack – you know – to keep up with work and babe all at the same time. What I’m looking for in a bag is the durability and versatility without compromising comfort and style. Good thing we visited SM Baguio and that it was Women Wednesday and that it’s on sale! A 50% off kind of sale!

I'm a mom now, I did finish my studies, pass the board and all that... but I still want to learn. For me, learning is a never-ending process! I work at home and when the work is done and the babe as sleep, I study. As of now, I'm into everything Korean - food, series, products and music. I've learned Filipino sign language before, now I want to learn Hanggul (South Korea's national language) and aside from reading books, listening is learning. What more fun way to learn Hanggul than to sing-along with my favorite K-pop band on KBS World or watch my latest Koreanovela, right?

Taho reminds me of my childhood. I used to run out of our house in Comembo whenever I hear Manong Taho's shouts echoing along our street. It reminds me of beautiful hot mornings, full of promises and sweats and sweets and play outdoors.
My 2months pregnant self during our trip to Bacolod. :)
Taho reminds me of my recent pregnancy. I used to shout back "dito! (here!)" and open the door to Mang Jason, our suki with my humongous cups for our original and sometimes strawberry flavored tahos. It reminds me of movie marathons, fog and rain, and hot gossips and whatnots during my stay in San Antonio.
Its been a year since my last cup and one recent afternoon, I crave for one. Called Papa and he returned with not just one but two tumblers of hot taho! :) can you imagine my excitement? I feel nostalgic and it seems like a déjà vu.
These cups are not the typical original arnibal or strawberry flavored tahos, these are high-end, these are almond flavored!
It's quite different to the taste as I'm not used on bland flavors of nuts in my cup - I'm used to rich sugary sweet - and of course, it's a good change. A good change I may say, as it's the healthier choice compare to chocolate or buko pandan, and it helps me realise that I'm doing a fitter choice when it comes to food.
Here's everything we need to know about the "New, Enhanced MET Tathione".
MET is the pioneering brand of glutathione whitening supplement in the Philippines. MET is very safe and has no side effects, and is completely sourced and manufactured in Japan under stringent quality control. It's main ingredient is Glutathione, a protein composed of three amino acids:
-cystine, glutamic acid, and glycine. It is known as the "master anti-oxidant" and is used to prevent oxidative stress in cells. Glutathione is also a very effective skin whitening agent that works by impeding the body's melanin production, the substance that gives the skin its color or pigmentation.
The New Improved MET now contains a new patented ingredient from France called Algatruim, to make MET(glutathione) more effective than the previous formulation. Algatruim like Glutathione, is also an anti-oxidant that reduces melanin production to avoid age spots. It also helps generate Glutathione which impedes melanin creation process, and promotes whitening.
That means MET now has two potent ingredients working in synergy, giving us a more effective skin whitening product!
unboxing my first MET..
here are the capsules..It's like a small cute egg :)
Glutathione is also important for a healthy liver. And as the body's "master antioxidant", glutathione strengthens the immune system, delays ageing, boost sexual potency, prevents skin allergies and stress-related diseases...plus, decreases the production of melanin to whiten skin. :)

Hi there! Finally, I have the time to blog this! haha :) Sorry for those who wait for too long!.. So, here are the ingredients of Whitening Bleach :
2 tbsp. of White Henna
2 tbsp. Soap Chips
3-4 tbsp. of full cream milk
10 bottle caps of Hydrogen Peroxide
4 drops of Ammonia Water
1 tsp. of Glycerine
1 tsp. Baby oil / Olive oil, or cooking oil as a substitute.
Direction: Mix all the ingredients into a bowl until it looks like this:
Be patient in mixing all the ingredients because it takes time to get the desire foamy texture. Swirl in one direction only so that the trap bubbles will not escape. Apply the mixture onto dry skin using upward motion only. The upward motion serves as skin lift, reducing sagging of the skin. Wait until it dries completely and rinse off with cold water to close the pores. This formula can also be use as face facial bleach.
* You can buy the ingredients at your local drugstore or beauty store like Mercury Drug and Hortaleza.
Strong Ammonia Water
Full Cream Milk
You can also add some shredded soap like papaya soap or glutathione soap if you like and best part in doing your own bleach is that you could customize the ingredients.
