Mini haul: October 2013 + My First Ever Traincase Purchase

November 24, 2013

Hello there dears!
This post is a bit late but I am posting them anyway. =)
This were my recent haul last October before all the recent disasters earthquake and Yolanda came to haunt my place and my beloved Central Visayas, my home. So, I don't mean to be so giddy at posting this for the past few days since I was just too overwhelmed about the recent tragedies my beloved hometown is facing.

I hope you do enjoy browsing and skimming through the photos I took about this lovely babies I got. I want to do a review but we'll save it for later. Below are the things I got:


Fanbo Compact Foundie in Honey. I love that the pigments are really white-ish and matches my skin tone. The feel on the skin is much that of VERY Fine sand. But What the heck, I loved it!
=)
It feels very smooth though. It gently scrubs and smoothens my face with every application. Plus it is so affordable for only PHP80 pesos! *wink*
One of my holy grails that is.


Mini Brush Set from AVON for only PHP99.00. Another steal right here! I got it for only PHP49 since this was discounted from my other AVON purchase, those lipsticks below: =) I will do a decent review on this as well.

Blush Brush, Liquid Foundie Brush, Eyeshadow Brush, Brow brush and Lip brush


my two ULTRA COLOR LIPSTICKS! in Red 2000 and dream Fuchsia. My new makeup kit staple. =)
I love the colors and the packaging.

I can clearly see which is which =). I hope AVON gets to have these in matte since the color pay-off is really good! Below are the swatches!

Dream Fuchsia (also wearing the foundie by FANBO)

Red 2000
That's about it. =)

I'd also hope you might want to take a good look about what is inside my traincase. 
I purchased this for PHP1,500 at NOVO Mandaue. Below is the video:
(Please just ignore the background, hehehe)

Enjoy!

Do you have makeup traincases too?  How do you store your own makeup?

Please do leave your comments! =)

have a great day ahead!

Yolanda. Help Now Wherever and Whenever You Can #YolandaPH

November 12, 2013

Last November 8, 2013, Friday was another yet rainy windy day for us.


Yolanda - the super typhoon considered to be the strongest to be ever recorded has finally did landfall.
I can really say that despite the strong winds we were fortunate to have survived and all of us were safe.

Breath Easy! Get Rid avoid COPD

Had a very gloomy start of November this year as my aunt got this pulmonary disease due to smoking. Although, I know there is more to it than just that, my aunt is a street cleaner here in Cebu preferably the Mandaue City area. She was having cough for several days already and that she also acquired fever and several chills by night time. I was really afraid that she got infected with rabies since she was bitten by her pet kitten the time she took bath of her.

Ukay Haul: October 2013

November 3, 2013

Hi Momsies!

I have had the chance to go back once again to shop this time at the Thrift shops. It's high time I get to buy really cheap but still quality items  =)
I believe this is great! Don't you think? I can get to save lots of moolahs form thriftstores, plus it's always good to see unique items/pieces at such very low prices.. *wink*


 What I got: a bag for the go to mom.

A closer look. I bought this for PHP450. =)  I need this one since the bag that I used is not durable for rainy seasons. So, i am okay with this na. The brand reads "esly" short for Especially loving you. =) I am not yet sure but I am not familiar with this brand.

Shoes for only PHP180. I bet this is already a steal, since I only got to spend a lil amount for this. This would cost me about 500 pesos in department stores! It is still at it's atmost appearance and the shoes are to die for. Nice talaga siya! It's perfect to wear for parties or other events like this upcoming Christmas Parties dont you think. *wink*

I also bought 3 tops for only PHP100. =)

Total purchased: PHP730.00. I saved a lot for this amount already! =)

Have you tried shopping at thrift stores too? Post your recent purchases momsies!
