August Favorites

Monday, August 31, 2015

I hope I didn't flood your feeds with my blog posts and Instagram backlogs! The past days, I wasn't my consistent "blog agad-agad" self, and had gathered around 10ish event posts and several IG assignments in my to-do list, huhu. Nakakalula! So anyway, so sorry for the sudden gush of posts today since it's one of my free days!

Anyway, I caught the flu, and had the reading-craze phase, so instead of blogging I was either enjoying Singapore in the eyes of the Crazy Rich Asians, or I was in a deeep deeeeep sleep. Which felt great! I had more than 8 hours of sleep since Wednesday. :) 

And since I'm in the mood to post something random naman, aside from events, here's my August Favorites. I'll try to make this a regular blog segment, kung maalala ko every end of the month, hehe. 

1) Laura Mercier Flawless Face Kit

Ever since my Basic Makeup Class with MAC x SOFA (blogged this HERE), I've learned that the best makeup starts with a perfect clean canvass. Laura Mercier is known for this - with their good quality primer, tinted moisturizer, concealer, and powder. The best part is everything's in this kit na, in sample sizes, for only Php 3000. Super sulit! Especially if you want to test muna the products, which are mostly Php 1000+ per piece when you buy them in regular size na.

2) ASUS ZenPower

I cannot fully express my love for ASUS, especially their power banks! They are lighter alternative to my former gadget, but still powerful with 10050mAh! This credit card-sized power bank charges faster with its 2.4A output, and can fully-charge your phone 2x! More on ASUS Philippines' latest gadgets HERE.

3) Favorite Reads

This non-fiction The Life Changing Magic Of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo book is life changing! It is step-by-step, and gives you a purpose to clean up and maintain a room that gives off only positive feelings: by being surrounded only by things that you love! Meanwhile, Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan is an entertaining novel on mala Rich Kids of Instagram families. I enjoyed the Singapore-Malaysia references, they reminded me of my recent travel!

4) Black Chuck 2

I had no plans on spending when I saw this pair of Chuck 2 in Converse Festival Mall. But how can I not buy this, e sulit na sulit sa akin my old black Chucks. With Lunarlon technology, they made this classic sneakers even more comfortable - I've used this pair almost everyday since I bought them! :p

5) The Nike Collection

My current kind of accessories.

6) BPI Prepaid Visa Credit Card

I thank the Spectrum Fair Manila launch for introducing me to a reloadable credit card concept from BPI. It's my first credit card, sa totoo lang, and I used this during my grocery shopping. Pwede din siya when I book flights or when I shop online. Super cool! I recently also learned about PayMaya, another reloadable credit card with easy application process. More on that in another blog post!

7) Amazing Grace

My dream scent come true!

8) Elecom Clip-On Lamp

I had this for a long time na, but discovered its usefulness when I suddenly had my reading-craze back. I clipped it on my bedside shelf so I can easily read my paperback in bed, before sleeping. More on Elecom HERE.

And lastly, 9) iFlix!

If you're into movies and TV series, iFlix is a super sulit app for you. For only Php 129 / month, you'll get to watch Awkward, Scandal, How I Met Your Mother, and a whole lot more! They even have local shows na in their library. I currently watched the movie The Lovely Bones, which is super heart wrenching and suspense! I was watching it ng gabi na, lights closed, and with my earphones - so sobrang intense! Haha. Sobrang enjoy.

Anyway, I think I want to watch another movie tonight! :p Enjoy the remaining hours of this "Second Sunday"! And grabe, BER month na! Wahhh! :D


  1. Ang galing nito! I should do this too.

  2. Winner ang iFlix but how I wish we have a super nice connection like in SG or Japan para sulit! Kalokaa minsan ang net kahit pa nka postpaid unli ka!


Your turn! Always excited to read your comments! :)
