Mascara Mondays: Majolica Majorca Lash King

Once upon a time, in a kingdom far, far away (a mall a 5-minute walk away from the office), there lived a king who could fulfill all your (lash-related) wishes. One day, the king jumped off his golden throne and decided he would grant the wishes of even more saps girls across the land. He sought a way to make himself available to a wider audience.

Bench Hairlastic Flexible Fibers Review

Most people think that permed hair is wash-and-wear hair. Well, yes and no.  If you choose to go for a more natural look, you could leave it alone and towel-dary as usual. If you want more defined curls, guuurl, you gon' have to work for it! Don't worry, it doesn't take a lot of effort, just 5 minutes tops ^^

During my first perm, I'd apply mousse on my hair; it made the curls crunchy. Then I tried applying a serum that worked for me pre-perm. It made the curls shine.. and straighten out. Yikes! I was determined to do better now that it was the second time around.

Where to go for good quality and affordable hair products? Instinct told me to head to Bench.

Bench offers a wide range of hair products, so choosing can be quite a feat. I wanted a product that would define my curls well (but not to the point of petrifying them). A product that didn't smell too funky. A product that wouldn't cause my wallet more unnecessary weight loss. In the middle of reading and rereading hold and shine ratings, I suddenly knew why I was there: I remembered how my sister would use a certain product on her permed hair (and how, in my not-as-girly days, I would actively ignore it). Since I have such wonderful memory, it took all of my brainpower to conjure an image. A flash of purple. And then, it hit me.

Behold! Bench Hairlastic Flexible Fibers!

Teeny pot is teeny!

Lotte Chocolate Pie Review

Time for some snackage! Spotted this at the Japanese food aisle at SM. I was a bit hesitant at first.. I mean, c'mon, PHP80? You could buy two meals with that (´へ`) However, curiosity won over practicality. Curiosity... and those fiendish squirrels. It's like they called out to me with their teeny voices, begging me to take them home!
Excited by the thought of discovering a new delicious sunakku, I hurriedly dropped it in the cart.

Nivea Med Protection Lip Balm Review

My 1st review~ Just the musings of moi. I’m no guru, mind you ( ´ ▽ ` )
Nivea Med Protection Lip Balm SPF 15
There was a week where I felt strangely weaker than usual. On top of that, my lips… scared me. I mean they really freaked me out. Dry as a desert on the outside, with little bumps on the inside. I had mouth sores, which made eating and talking a chore. They were bleeding (the last time my lips bled was in the 6th grade when I refused to use lip balm "because it's girly eww") ! Looking back, it’s prolly because I started using a lip gloss that I hadn’t used in a long time…
