Happy St. Paddy's Day! - Nailspirations!

Hey hey! Where's me pot of gold??

Get it? get it? Okay..nevermind! ;D Happy happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! *I hope it's not too late to greet ya'll! 

Today, I feel like painting my nails 'green' in celebration for this Irish holiday-St. Patrick's Day. I'm not after the artsy-artsy stuff as I don't have the right materials so I just went simple by using two nail polish - a mint green and a dark green holographic polish from Born Pretty Store. Check it out below.

So since I can't show you any complex nail art tutorial that's St. Paddy's Day themed, let me just show you a few nail inspiration that I found and I'm sure you're gonna "love" to try! I call these -- Nailspirations! (Nail Inspiration) LOL

Getting back on my feet...Time Heals All Wounds

Hey pretties! How are you doing? I hope everyone is doing great. I bet you're all busy and excited on preparing for Halloween parties. Well, I, myself had been busy but not in a good way really. This past few weeks has been very tough for me. Heck I just realized that I've been away for more than a month. I miss my blog! I miss you guys so much! :')

Alright, so why am I away for a month? It's because an unfortunate thing happened. My father was very ill. He's diabetic and he went through leg amputation. It was very tough on him and it's tougher on us because we don't know what to expect or what will happen. As I've said, he was "very" ill. So I had to be there for him and I just couldn't find time to update you guys. I didn't even find time to rest because after work, I have to go to hospital all the time. Yes, I still go to work because hospital bills just keeps getting higher and that means, it's not the right time to stop working. You know what I mean. But now, he's getting better, thank God! Despite all the restless nights and the unbelievable hospital bills, I'm still glad that God looked after dad and helped him survive this. We're really grateful. :) And now, we're getting back on our feet..slowly but surely. I kept myself busy with work (because I had to) and I'll also blog every now and then. I can't promise though that I'll be consistent but I'll try. *wink*

This was a draft post that's been sitting on my account for months now.Dated last October 2013. I was not able to post it and didn't actually had the time to blog because something suddenly came up.

 photo 9339562-postman-flies-on-the-wings-to-deliver-quick-email.jpg
I honestly don't know how to start this post. Been thinking for a few hours on how I translate my happiness into words but I guess there's really no perfect statement especially when your heart is full of joy,love,care and blessings! I'm just so overwhelmed right now. My goals and dreams are starting to come true..slowly but surely. This week, I received some good news plus some of the stuff that I've been planning for a long time now is actually on the way to become a reality!! :') Anyway, I'll stop this now before I get too dramatic. I'm here to share with you what Mr. Postman brought me this week,! :D And yes, this is def one of the things I consider a blessing! Because I feel like the love and passion that I put into this blog is being appreciated by both readers (love you guys!) and some brands/companies! :D But let me be clear that I didn't start to blog just to monetize and became millionaire!lol..But I don't close my doors either because accepting brands into my blog makes me discover products (good and bad) and be able to share it with you. That's the main purpose of this blog anyway- To try new products in search of my holy grail...and yours too! ;) So yeah..there! Oooh see? This rather became a long intro! haha!

Alright, so what did the postman brought me? Let's find out!

My CarbTrim Experience: Can-enjoy it!

 photo 479959_480206615393577_1795029908_n.jpg

Diet and exercise is a difficult thing to maintain especially when delicious-tempting food is all around you. It's even harder when these meals are served in front of you. How can you say no to the most-loved, sinful and oh so delicious Filipino pork lechon? And don't even forget these seafoods, sweet desserts and of course, the pancit!! I know I can't stop myself (and trust me I don't want stop myself really.) but after eating, that's when regrets and realization starts to meet. Oh my gosh! How  many rice have I eaten? How many times did I put something on my plate? I'm sooo full!! :O oh my gosh! --yep! Panic Alert!

But now? I worry nothing 'coz I know, CarbTrim's got my back! ;)

Used Abused & Reviewed: Royale Beauty Kojic Papaya Soap

Hey PL pretties! Last month, I got two soaps from a well-established company - Royale Beauty! In this post, I will share my thoughts on one of their popular soap - the Royale Beauty Kojic Papaya soap! Keep reading to know how this soap fared on my skin!

Royale Beauty Kojic Papaya Soap

Moisturizes and lightens the skin, has mild peeling effect!

When it comes to "beauty" soaps, I always have two things in mind: lightening effect and moisturizing power. I'm not into anti-aging soaps...FOR NOW..oooh scary! :D Anyway, these two doesn't come in equal part in one soap. Sometimes a soap gives a superb hydration power but doesn't really lightens your skin. Take for example, the Moringa 02 Malunggay Herbal soap that I reviewed HERE. Or sometimes, a product whitens but lacks the hydration power. It's considerable though. There's no such thing as perfect product and if there is, it only means it's EXPENSIVE. Not on our budget. Do you agree Pinays? Alright, my point? Well, I have found that two components in this soap.Yep! But wait, don't give yourself too much expectations though.tehee..
