Weekend Collective Haul

8 Jun

Last weekend, I went to Central Chitlom (one of the posh malls here in Bangkok) to look for a birthday present for my boss. I was debating whether to get her a beauty product or a statement necklace, but I remembered that the last time I got her a beaded necklace, she only used it to the office once so I decided to get her a makeup item instead, of course with the hope that she  makes use of it well. After going up and down the different department store levels and sections and checking out several makeup counters, I settled to give her  Dior (not pictured). I didn’t get myself anything from any high end brand because I am saving it for duty free shopping at the airport when I travel next month.

As for my own goodies, I got mine from The Body Shop, The Face Shop and drugstores, Boots and Watsons.

The Body Shop

Shea Soap (I love its mild scent and its relatively moisturising effect.)

Shea Lip Butter (I had this ages ago so I thought it would be good to get another one again. I’m not liking its smell but it does relieve dry lips.)

Peppermint Intensive Foot Rescue (I only used it once but I’m partial to anything mint.)

Born Lippy Stick Lip Balm Pomegranate (I didn’t use it yet but swatched it at the store. It is very sheer, almost colourless.)

Some of the succeeding items are not tested nor swatched yet, so please pardon if I have no comments for other products enumerated.

Boots

17 Photo Flawless Eye Pencil in Black Blue

No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour in Temptress

Leif on Location 6-Piece Long Handle Brush Set (They’re very soft. I got this set for my trip next month.)

Revlon and The Face Shop Nail Polishes

Impulsive

–  Fearless (Both Revlon polishes are really creamy and opaque. They got small and narrow brushes, though.)

Lovely Me:ex PK109

Lovely Me:ex WH002 (This bottle has no Lovely Me:ex label which is weird.)

The Face Shop

Herb Day Lip & Eye Makeup Remover (This smells good and is gentle, too.)

Honey BB (One of The Face Shop’s new products, its consistency is like a mousse unlike regular BB creams.)

Mini Pet Sweet (This is the newest variant in the Mini Pet series.)

Lovely Me:ex Happy Chu Lip in PK101 (It is a lightly-tinted lip balm which is comparable to its competitions, Companies E and T’s products.)

Lovely Me:ex Nail Polish Remover (It smells good and not drying.)

It’s the weekend once again but I will not be doing a lot of shopping for beauty items after this haul. Aside from not really needing anything, I should be saving for my upcoming trip because I am certain that I will not be able to hold off the urge to purchase when I go to the Philippines.

I am planning to make detailed reviews and swatches of these items (maybe not all of the products) but if you are interested with anything, please don’t hesitate to let me know so I can review it first.

Hope you all have a fun and productive weekend! Don’t shop too much 😉

Cheers 🙂

Feeling homesick

9 Feb

I was feeling homesick yesterday so I decided to drop by the Filipino store. At first, all I wanted was to get some chips but then there was none so I looked around and see what I can get. I decided to just get some canned food and instant noodles. I’m not really into instant noodles much but when I saw some television commercials about it, it made me want to try and eat it too. The power of advertising, eh?

The other day, I went to Goldilocks in Siam Square since I was craving for polvoron but sadly, there was none.

So, I got ensaymada and sans rival instead.

Yummy! The bakeshop goodies taste like home. I have one gripe though, the sans rival was not packaged well, at least in a plastic bag or container. It was unhygienically placed in a paper bag without any cover at all. Paging Goldilocks Thailand, hope you fix this please.

Of course, they are pricey since they are imported goods but it’s just one (or two?) of the days that I really miss home. So, I indulged!

I came across the second version of “Pilipinas, Tara Na” music video showcasing the beauty of the Philippines and decided to post it here.

I looked for the first version, so here it is.
