haul: lory's hair cream

Good evening, everyone! 
I am here now to share with you one similar thing between me and my Ate.

We both have bad cases of hoarding XD

Yep. To give you a quick overview of how much we hoard, we currently have...
10 Creamsilk Conditioner tubes(big ones)
About 6 or 8 Kojic - san soaps
Tons of stationeries, post its, pens, papers and the likes
Ate recently bought 10 pairs of shoes in one go :D
Yeaaah... That's all I can think of right now, but I'm sure we've had more hoarding adventures. 

Anywaaaays. As soon as I saw the Ensogo Lory's Hair Cream Discount voucher, I immediately told her and convinced her that GTers were raving about it. And of course, she agreed. 

I mean, Lory's Hair Creams are already really cheap! I just wasn't convinced that I'd be able to finish a whole jar because I'm not much of a conditioner/hair treatment user.

But then, they added a discount. And now, 15 new babies were added to our hoard collection :D

Mama: "Talaga naman tong mga batang to. Sobra naman sa dami yan, ano ipapaligo niyo na din yan? Gusto niyo ako na magpaligo sa inyo? Tsk, tsk."

I have curly hair, so the Ceramides and Shea Butter variants are for me. 
And the rest is for my dear Ate :D
Well, of course, we'll share it with sis-in-law.

I forgot the number of jars per variant we ordered. 
And I'm too lazy to check :D

I'm really not sure how are we going to consume all of these, considering we still have a large stock of Creamsilk Conditioners. Haha. 
I plan to put a small amount in a pump for sanitary purposes, and less hassle na rin :D

Any one tried these variants? Any inputs? Thanks :D I'm sorry if we're greedy XD

nailed with love || bobbie pussy red

Hello, dolls! 
It's been a loooooong time.
Here is a new nail post for you :)

 I bought this nail polish when I was on the "Red Nails" frenzy.
I have to admit, I bought it because of the name :D
That's two coats.

 Bobbie Nail Hardener || Bobbie Pussy Red || Bobbie Special Quick Dry

Bobbie Pussy Red

Oops. I forgot to take a picture of the bottle, sorry XD
It's darker in person. A deeper red. 
This is my first time to try cutting my nails square. 
And having them at medium length.
(Maybe not obvious in the pictures because of the angle)

We're almost through our thesis, but internship is up next.
I really can't feel my sembreak :(

tony moly egg pore shiny skin soap

Good morning, hearties!
Today, I'll be attempting to review a skincare product.
Maggie of A Beautiful Rhapsody has asked if I could do a review of the Tony Moly Egg Pore Shiny Skin soap (whew, such a long product name!) from this post. 

So now, I am here, challenging myself to do a good product review haha.
By the way, there will be a series of face pictures ahead. Please don't be scared

Egg Pore Shiny Skin Soap
  50g per egg
  448 Php at Tony Moly SM Manila Branch

"Effective pore purifying products that clears out blackheads and impurities with egg."

Instructions: Use the white egg first. Latter with warm water and massage on face. Then leave on for 15-20 minutes. Wash off with water. Do the same procedure for the brown egg except leave it on for 5 minutes less than the time it took on the white one. Use it 2 to 3 times a week.
There is a strong smell from the eggs that might be disturbing for others. It smells good for me, kinda reminds me of a hair salon. Haha.
This is my face before washing. Nasty breakouts on the T-zone, I know
 A lot of oiliness here and there, big eyebags. Hahaha, talk about haggard.

Anywaaaays, I washed my face with the white egg and waited for 15 minutes because I'm really impatient with these things. The white egg was really, really itchy on certain spots.

Now, I'm finished with the white egg and waited 10 minutes for the brown egg. Unlike the white egg, I didn't feel much itchiness on my face. Though there are certainly red spots.

 Tadaaah! Now my face is squeaky clean and slightly filled with red spots. My face feels really refreshed and it looks so pale! XD. 
This has been my second time to use this product. Now, I can tell that I think it has helped me with the whiteheads on my nose area before. It doesn't do much on oil control. It only took about 2 1/2 hours for my face to feel sticky again. As for the promise on removing blackheads, I really can't tell because I don't have much and I've used a nose pore strip recently (sorry). Also, I haven't been using it religiously because it is sooo time-consuming. 
I hope I have helped you (in some tiny way) with this review. Please do correct me if I'm wrong with something :) And if you have any questions, I'll answer it with all that I can haha.

Thanks for reading!

nailed with love || bobbie black shadow

Good evening, dearies!
I am back with yet another nail post :)

 Can somebody give me tips on taking care of cuticles? 
I was cutting them before but I think it's not really advisable to do so.
Right now, I'm just pushing them back. 
But after a day or two, they are so visible again

Can you see the glitters in the bottle? 
So pretty. Like stars in the night sky

Bobbie Black Shadow
 8 ml
36.00 Php at Watsons
Bobbie Nail Hardener || Bobbie Black Shadow || Bobbie Special Quick Dry
I think my pictures are really blurred. Sorry about that
This is my first Bobbie nail polish and it has been my favorite ever since!
I think it looks so good on short nails which made me love it more haha.

remington fish

Hello lovelies!!!
Oh dear, it's been a long time since I've typed on my address bar.
I'm sorry I've been away for awhile. Exams all around. And birthdays, too!

This is just a quick visit here in my blog. 
I still have a lot to do. Gaaah. Seems like the to do list won't end  

But I'll be back real soon. Maybe one or two posts these days.
And by the way...

Meet Remington, my dear blue fighting fish. 
He is actually in a darker blue color but the flash kinda took some of the color away XD (Am I making sense..)

I bought him when a friend asked me to accompany her buy a hamster at Cartimar.

At first we didn't know its gender so we chose Remington as its name, in accordance to the movie with the gay "Remington".

But two days ago, I saw a LOT of bubbles on top of the water so I had to Google why there were such. And so I found out that once the males are ready to mate, they make the "bubble nest" for the eggs. Unfortunately, my Remington doesn't have a partner so the there's no use for the bubbles. Well at least now I know that he's a male :)

tony moly x watsons mini haul

Good day, lovelies!
This is yet another overdue post. Hihihi

When I first read that Tony Moly launched their branch in SM Manila, I was soooo excited.
For some reason, I am suddenly on the lookout for Korean products.

So I immediately asked my friend to accompany me. And of course, we passed by Watsons, too

egg pore shiny skin soap(448 php) || baby doll pot concealer(248 php) || tomatox brightening mask(free~!)
monea curl defining milk hair lotion(99 php) || nichido lip brush(45 php)

Since I've become loyal to my curls, I had to buy something to keep my hair from frizz and hold my curls. And so I found this milk lotion. It smells good. And it really holds curls well. Even if I went to bed, most of my curls are not deformed. As for the frizz, it doesn't do much for me :(

I've been searching for a concealer, and now, here it is. It's really creamy. I haven't used this much yet because for the past few days, I'm always rushing to school  

When I saw this, I was so curious.. And I was sold. It's just so darn cute. If only I could buy the package itself.

It's supposed to help with blackheads and other blemishes. As I was instructed (and as far as I can remember...), I'll be washing my face with the white egg and leave it for 15 - 20 minutes. As for the other one, I'll also be massaging it and leaving it on my face 5 minutes less the time it took me with the white one. 

 ^Is this correct? I hope so xD Haven't use this one also. I haven't got 30 minutes to spend massaging and running around with soap in my face yet 

The tomatox whitening mask is a freebie. I also got a Tony Moly membership card because I got a 500 php worth of purchase. By the power of this card, I can get 2% rebate for 100 php worth of purchase. Yeah.

Yay for long post!

nailed with love || bobbie touch of tan

Good evening ladies!
 This is just a quick nail post.

  Please do excuse my cuticles They weren't properly cleaned because I was so sleepy. And also, this is already a 3-day old manicure  

Bobbie Touch of Tan
 8 ml
36.00 Php at Watsons

  Bobbie Nail Hardener || Bobbie Touch of Tan || Caronia Fast-Dry Top Coat

I used my Caronia top coat for a change. I'm convinced, it's better than the Bobbie one. Prevents chipping better.
I opted for a professional-looking shade since tomorrow will be our pre-defense.
We had a big dilemma on our thesis yesterday. We had last minute changes on the proposal itself. So much stress.

Now I have a long night ahead. Must go back to work.
Please wish us luck tomorrow!
