Mini Beauty Haul

Im back with a haul! Well, a super mini haul, because I technically bought one item, well, I bought another item but its for my skincare so I thought it isn't that exciting, but its is a set so it has really more than one product in it. Did you get what I mean?

I'm sorry I have been MIA for a week, its just that this time is all about the completion of requirements for school. This may continue (the sporadic blogging) until the end of the semester in October so I am apologizing in advance.

Now, onto the haul.

I got this set from NARS, and it is called the "I Will Survive" Set.

It is a limited edition set which costs $55 and I got it from Nordstrom which is still available here. For local readers, I got it from House of Flair through the pre-order service that they have.

here are the products

New Shows To Watch

The US shows that I have been watching just came back for their newest seasons. I am very excited for them because I have been waiting for months! Some of them are the usual: Gossip Girl, Glee, 90210, TVD, Grey's Anatomy, Parenthood etc. I have also been watching Pretty Little Liars that already had their mid-season finale, and The Lying Game. Now, there are a few new shows that launched and I want to share with you which ones I think is worth watching (in my opinion).

Take note that I am not into crime shows, or ones that have a scary plot (I hesitated on watching TVD at first because of the vampire thing).

Here we go:

1. The Secret Circle

This is a show based on the book of the same title by L.J. Smith, who also wrote The Vampire Diaries. Again, I had second thoughts of watching this because I am a self-admitted scaredy-cat. It is a story of a teenager named Cassie who moved to the fictional town of Chance Harbor, Washington after her mother's death. She discovers that she belongs to a family of witches, and I think that is how far I would go. I might give in to the temptation of adding spoilers if I go on.

I think it is a great show, and it is worth watching.

Want List Wednesday #4: Bobbi Brown 20th Anniversary Lip Palette

Just finished my school day, it was tiring but not as much as yesterday. Anyhoo, I have another addition to my wishlist so I decided to include it here in my Want List Wednesday posts.

Drooling over the limited edition 20th Anniversary Lip Palette from Bobbi Brown. I really love Bobbi Brown's style of makeup. It is really about enhancing your features and not covering them up. I actually have one of her books called Teenage Beauty.

I have come across this palette from her new website/blog which you can click here. The palette includes the 10 original lipstick shades that she created back in 1991 (the year I was born, if you wanna know), and for options, she included 10 more super bright, fun colors.

These are the colors:
1991 Colors: Salmon, Beige, Raisin, Brown, Rose, Pink, Orange. Blackberry, Burnt Red and Red.  The 2011 Exclusive Colors: Coral Gables, Lady Ruba, Berry Punch, Hot Berry, Watermelon, Atomic Pink, Party Pink, Cosmic Lily, Pink Martini and Candied Red.

According to Bobbi, Lady Ruba, which is a neon orange hue, is inspired by her creative director who always seems to be a few steps ahead of everyone else when it comes to style.

The lipsticks are housed in a sleek black packaging with a mirror and "EST. 1991" on top. It also includes a lip brush which is very convenient for travel.

You can always pick out the neutral colors for daytime or for school/work, and then the bright ones for nights out. Or for a more creative approach, you can definitely mix and match the colors for a custom shade that suits your liking.

Can't wait to have this one! Maybe it will stay on my list as it has a $60 price tag. To be honest it really is a great deal because you get 20 colors total. You can get it here on their website now or on Bobbi Brown counters in October 2011.

Will you purchase it? Let me know!

What's In My Purse?

Hello everybody!

Hello Monday. School starts again and it is a gloomy day. I feel that its going to rain very hard later in the afternoon.

On a brighter note, I decided to do the "What's In My Purse" tag  that has been going on for years now, I think. I don't usually carry a purse when I go out, for example to run errands and things like that, but yesterday I went to a birthday lunch so I decided to carry one along.

My bag is this light gray beige color from Clarks which was gifted.

And The Countdown Begins...

Its officially 100 days before Christmas!

Aren't you all excited?!
I'm feeling the Christmas spirit already, even the malls feel it too! They already started playing their Christmas songs on repeat and displaying the decors that are for sale.

Well, first of all, Christmas is my favorite holiday. Aside from the gifts of course, I am excited for the family gatherings and Noche Buena-- I am especially excited for the ham because we only get to eat that once a year during this time.

Its the spirit of giving that makes this holiday a really wonderful one.

So, what are you excited about for Christmas?

1. POREfessional
-This is a primer that fills in your pores to make them look smaller. This is not however a pore minimizer, it is just a temporary remedy for those who have large pores.

Benefit Cosmetics in the Philippines?!


I'm actually imagining what the counter would be like! I'm sure it would be just as fancy as this photo above.

I know I haven't posted a thing in almost a week and I apologize. I will try and post this coming days to make it up. :)

Anyhoo, I read in other blogs that Benefit Cosmetics is coming here in Manila. HOOOORAY!

There is no definite date yet, but you can check out their Facebook page here to get all the inside scoops of the brand.

As for my wishlist, I guess I'll be doing that in my Want List Wednesday next week. So excited!
