I really need a day between Saturday and Sunday.

15 September 2013

Insert long and winding introduction here. These are the things that made my week.

The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipstick in Red Siren
This was sent to me by The Body Shop last week but I'm including it in this list because this is what I used every day. Full review to be posted soon but for now, can I just say how I LOVE its color and how it moisturizes my lips?

The How I Met Your Mother cast in the cover of Entertainment Weekly
I made an internal big WHOOP! when I finally got my copy from Fully Booked in Greenbelt as I've been wanting one ever since I saw the cover online. I love How I Met Your Mother and I feel like watching its last season beginning September 23 will feel like breaking up with a long-time partner. I'm preparing the tissues as early as now.

Robyn's new home
After more than a year, I finally got my Samsung NC110 a case so she'll be safe and secure whenever I lug her to and from the office! This was a commissioned piece by Meream, whose handmade works I am a huge fan of. I love the "tiny town" fabric and the itty bitty purple buttons.

Fresh from a Shiseido Ibuki facial and makeover
I attended the Shiseido Ibuki event last Thursday and it was definitely a one-of-a-kind experience! I will share more information about what happened at the event in a future post.

Eye Correcting Cream, Refining Moisturizer, Softening Concentrate, and Gentle Cleanser from the Shiseido Ibuki range
New skincare regimen I can't wait to try, mostly after seeing how Sophie swears by it!

New shoes
Yep, always a worthy addition to a "what made my week" list. ♥

Ralph plus Mike doing what he does best: make fun of me.
That pose is kind of a private joke that has already become public.
Last Friday, Mike and I went to Fort to have breakfast in the Toast Box branch at Ralph's office building. I love the smell of toast and tea or coffee in the morning. And even though these two always make fun of me (in a good-natured way, not in a mean way), I really appreciate how close we've become in the past few months. :)

See? Mike loves making fun of me.

Come lunchtime, I was also able to drag Gerick and Rica to Cafe Juanita with us. I love when my friends from different fields come together and become friends, too.

Tegan and Sara Live in Manila
One of the most awesome news I've heard this month!
VIP tickets that include Meet and Greet passes(!!!) have been sold out already so I'll just sit in my corner for a while and cry (ノД`)・゜・。I am willing to forego watching Sugar Ray (and miss out on seeing my sixth grade self's crush Mark McGrath in the flesh) and Matchbox Twenty just to have enough monies for Tegan and Sara huhu. Thanks, Lorraine, for introducing me to their music!

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
Call me the biggest loser in the land, but yesterday was my first time to watch this 2009 movie. LOVED IT. Flint Lockwood speaks to my soul.

Well... If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
Photo taken during the despedida party we had for Tita Tits last night. She will be migrating to the US soon, thus leaving our carpool service. She's always been nice to me so I'm going to miss greeting her good morning every work-day, but I wish her all the best.

My Charm makeup brushes and J&C Super Clean Solutions Makeup Brush Cleaner
Having nothing better to do this lazy rainy afternoon, I decided to give my brushes the TLC they badly needed. My foundation and concealer brushes are the ones who've gotten the most abuse so I made sure to give them a good dose of deep cleaning.

I bleed glitter
While waiting for the brushes to dry, I whipped out some of my latest makeup and did product shots for future reviews. I love this palette because the colors and micro-glitters are so pretty! Very inexpensive, too! Will reveal the brand when I post my review.

Aaand that's it. Wish you all a bright and sunny week ahead!
