Yes I'm Stressed out. I need RETAIL THERAPY :|

ARGHH... Super stressed out I can't even think straight anymore. So far this year has been a total bitch to me to think that 11 is/ was my favorite number. I dont know what's happening I've been thinking to go to Quiapo and have my fortune told just in case I need the guidance. Almost everything is going downhill for me and I really don't know what to do. I've been feeling lazy yet I feel ultimately stressed. I've been trying to concentrate but my attention always drifts elsewhere. Its been tough... taking it as a challenge is a bit of an understatement. I really do hope this year ends already and I kinda feel all giddy when people were saying "its almost december" cause that marks the end of the year... I feel like this is just a phase and it will get better... eventually...

Now I kinda feel like I wanna shop. Like really really badly... Cause somehow I feel so comforted with just about anything new. Sad part is my supply of funds is slowly deteriorating which is a very bad sign considering where I'm going in a few weeks..

PITY.

Body SHOP! Carrot Moisture Cream & Tea Tree Oil

(DUNNO WHY BUT THE PHOTO UPLOADER ISNT WORKING. WILL EDIT THIS)


I dropped by Body Shop today and I saw that they were having a sale. So I was just wandering around and I saw some tea tree stuff... Watching youtube I saw that some people are completely addicted to TBS Tea Tree Oil it was a very small bottle, a bit pricey for the amount you get but I decided to try it anyway since I have acne prone skin and I do need every medication I could get to achieve my goal of having a flawless face till i'm super old and wrinkly.Then I bought the Carrot Moisture cream since it sounded good for your skin cause duh its carrots and I haven't tried and of the TBS Moisture creams. It was a good purchase though considerably because I am running low on my Celeteque Moisturizer and my Clean & Clear one. I do have a HUGE amount of the Cetaphil Moisturizer but for me it often gets to sticky so I'd rather use it for some other purpose other than my face.

HALL OF SHAME: FRANCES GUMBA

SCAMMER. SOME PEOPLE JUST CANT FIND DECENT JOBS.. YOU DONT KNOW IF THEY ARE NOT EDUCATED.. THEY HAVE NO DIGNITY... THEY HAVE NO SHAME... AND THEY OBVIOUSLY DONT THINK OF OTHER PEOPLE. THEY ARE ALL SELFISH. SORRY IF I SOUND SO HARSH ON THIS BLOGPOST... BUT RECENTLY I HAVE BEEN SCAMMED BY A PERSON NAMED FRANCES GUMBA. I ORDERED A NAKED PALETTE FROM HERE WHICH I IMMEDIATELY PAID VIA GLOBE GCASH AND SHE DID NOT REPLY THROUGH TEXT OR EMAIL THAT SHE HAS RECEIVED THE PAYMENT. SO I STARTED GETTING SUSPICIOUS AND GOOGLED... I FOUND SOME OF HER PROFILE... AND THE COMMENTS WERE PRETTY DECENT... BUT AFTER ABOUT A WEEK OF GETTING NO RESPONSE, I ASKED HELP FROM PEOPLE AND TODAY I WENT TO GLOBE JUST TO CONFIRM IF SHE DID OR DID NOT CASH-OUT MY PAYMENT.JUST TO FIND OUT IF THERE WERE ANY PROBLEMS WITH HER PHONE LINE OR WAS SHE JUST NOT REPLYING BECAUSE SHE'S A TOTAL A FRAUD. WELL... I GOT MY ANSWER. SHE IS A SCAMMER. FOUND OUT THAT SHE CASHED OUT EVERYTHING ON HER ACCOUNT.. AS IF SHE'S PLANNING TO ESCAPE.. OBVIOUSLY THERE'S NOTHING MORE THAT I CAN DO AT THIS POINT SO I GOT HER BLACKLISTED BY GLOBE... AND I'M TRYING TO THE SAME THING TO OTHER SITES TO PREVENT HER FROM DOING THIS TO OTHERS.

100 years:La Salle Centennial Celebration



UBER LATE BLOGPOST. Doesnt matter I just had to document this :P It was held on June 16 2011 at DLSU.. It was super fun... Everyone just got into the spirit of things and bought La Salle merchandise like its the end of the world. I kinda wanted to go home because there were too many people.. There was a flash mob, some live mannequin kinda thing, concert both in the Amphitheatre & Agno street party, Green Lantern and Fireworks. They really went all out on this ;) Too lazy to say anything more.. But I guess other people would probably blabber about this so they can fill all the other information in :P

xo.

My current HAPPY PILL: Redoxfat



I've been using Redoxfat for a month now and it has been effective... so far.. Its 500mg and it only has L-carnitine and green tea.. Obviously there's no bad thing in it so I just had to get it.its costs about 400php and for me its worth you just have to keep taking it cause I really dont know whats gonna happen if you skipped a day of it but I reckon it might just lose its effect a bit. I lost about 3-6 lbs because of this and I've been very happy :) It also helped me sweat while I work out in the gym so thats another plus. And it doesnt give you sudden urges to take a crap so I'm happy that unlike other pills, this wont make me MAKE A MESS in public places. ;)

LUSH Haul: Squeaky Clean (SOAPS)



I went to LUSH today after the gym cause I was running out of soap I had just ONE block of Demon in the Dark (Dark Green Spearmint scented) and Honey I washed the Kids (Beige color with honey comb.. smells like milk and honey)... I got 4 soaps: ROCKSTAR, THE GODMOTHER, PORRIDGE AND ICE BLUE.



So this is Rockstar (Pink)& Godmother (Red).. I took them out of their paper wrapping and stored them in these transparent containers..

They both smell like candy.. Bubblegum to be exact. I wasnt sure if I should get it but I dunno everyone's been raving about it so I gave it a shot :P




Next is Porridge (Beige one with oats) and this smells like oatmeal.. I loved it from the first time i saw it but hesistated and got the demon in the dark and honey i washed the kids soap instead. Some say this can clog your bathroom since the oats fall like crazy but i dont care :P The other one is called Ice Blue and it has a strong peppermint smell.. Its stronger than the Demon in the Dark one and its supposed to wake you up... To me the smell is pretty manly but it smells good :P

As for the price I dunno if I'm happy with it.. its kinda expensive especially since I bought some stuff from LUSH just yesterday (lipdip, lip tint, lipbalm, vanilla fountain bathbomb) and these combined cost me a fortune when I shouldnt be spending anymore in time for my Singapore trip... but as i've said in my last blog, frugality will start tomorrow... So better splurge today.hahaha >:P

I'm planning to save the world... ONE LUSH SOAP AT A TIME ;)

XO.

Mini LUSH HAUL feat. When it RAINS it POURS..



Yesterday was so frustrating. I was supposed to go to the gym cause I haven't worked out in a while but then it rained so hard and I had a hard time getting a cab but atleast I was fortunate compared to all the other people who literally "walked on water"--JESUS STYLE. So yeah the streets were all flooded, a lot of people got stranded including my uncle who got stuck in the skyway for god knows how long and my brother who got stuck in his office but fortunately got a ride to ayala and he just checked-in there instead joining the water parade just to get home. Really expensive stuff though 8k for a hotel room that looks like a luxurious apartelle ( I got free breakfast though and I got to sleep a bit there) I also took a bath there just because they had a bathtub and I really wanted to try Lush Bath Bombs (Ballistics) cause everyone said it was to awesome to ignore. So i went down, got into the mall and got some Lush goodies since the hotel was part of the mall (ASCOTT RESIDENCES) and I got a few things:

MAPLE TAFFY Lip Balm ( This smells so good and it makes my lips look perfect wish I got 3 or 4 more of these though )

DOUBLE CHOC Lip Tint (Awesome bronzy color and obviously smells like chocolate)

2 LIP DIP (Lip Srubs)--(Sherbert Lemon Scent and it was the god-sent solution to my dry lips dilemma. Its been like that for almost a week.. maybe because of the weather...oh and this is less abrasive than the other lip scrubs like bonbon)

Vanilla Fountain Bath Bomb (I had a love-hate issue with this earlier... It was a good bath experience but nothing to special , the smell was awesome, it made my skin so soft but it didnt have any bubbles or confetti or whatever like the others and it looked like a huge tub of pee in the tub. So i kinda wished I got the comforter bubble bar instead maybe I might have enjoyed it a bit more. And I was stupid with the price.. I though it was just about 145php cause thats what the plaque said but when it was punched and it was too late when I noticed it was 345 php so yeah i spent it on 1 bath. I couldve gotten the comforter bubble bar that was 245 php or more but you know it is less since as i've said I'm trying to save up.)

I love the people there at LUSH Glorietta 4 they were just so happy and friendly unlike those people from another LUSH branch that I wont dare mention. So from now on I think i'll just be travelling to get stuff from there instead. They deserve the sales :)

------WISH I COULD GO TO THE GYM TOMORROW... ITS BEEN LIKE A WEEK. :| SUCKS :|-------OH AND THE FRUGALITY WILL START NEXT WEEK :D

FINANCIAL ISSUES. :|

In reference to my two recent blogpost obviously I've been spending a lot lately. And I think I'm going crazy. I've spent so much and I haven't even noticed it until now. I really need to save up for my trip :| hope I can do this. Anyway the game plan will be to spend 500 or less every week and then deposit everything i have left on my account to pay back the money I've taken out of it. I know it isnt gonna be enough for me to take back all that I've withdrew this past few weeks but atleast I can add something. :|

Beauty Haul

WHAT I GOT RECENTLY:

FOREVER 21 BLUE AND RED ROMPER
BANANA RIPPED SHIRT
CELINE BEIGE WEDGES (Used it today and it looked pretty with my white ripped top and shorts.)
MASK OF MAGNAMINTY (I tried this today and this worked fantastic on me.. should've bought 3 tubs of it but oh well)
SIGMA MAKE ME BLUSH 12 PC. BRUSH SET
GREEN AND WHITE BOMBER JACKET
2 ANIMONSTER SHIRTS
URBAN DECAY NAKED PALETTE
BONNE SPA MILKSALT

I know this is less than what i got before but i tell you, this is wayy more expensive than that. I just hope these will all be worth it cause I seriously have a second to none budget for my shopping trip in Singapore. Ugh gotta stop procrastinating and spending,, time to go back to the old boring and nerdy addie before this gets out of hand :|

Beauty and Brains Haul

(I meant to do this a week ago but I never got around to it cause I said to myself that I need to get my homework done first but sadly I'm still not done with everything... but I'm doing this anyway before I forget everything that I bought. This is sorta like a note to remind me what I've bought recently and what I should consume first before I get anything else.)

The title is Beauty and Brains haul because this post consist of Cosmetics and Books.--

Sooo I got:

Maybelline's Angelfit Flawless Affinity Two way cake foundation spf22 in light beige ochre and a refill

Covergirl's Advanced Radiance Age Defying Makeup with Spf 10 in classic ivory

Etude House BB Magic Cream with Spf 30 (blue tube)

Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Eye Concealer in 210

Celeteque Oil control toner

Celeteque facial moisturizer with spf 15

Etude house collagen moistfull

Marionnaud Diamond shaped sponges

Loreal True Match super blendable makeup with spf 17 in n3 (neutral)

EcoTools 5 piece Bamboo Brush Set

Ecotools 5 piece Eye Brush Set

THEN... I went to powerbooks and got:

Sophie Kinsella's:

Confessions of a Shopaholic

Mini Shopaholic

Shopaholic and Baby

Shopaholic and Sister

Shopaholic Ties the Knot

The Undomestic Goddess

Emily Griffin's Something Blue

Chuck Palahnuik's Haunted

Candace Bushnell's Summer and the City

Calorie Counter Book

The Carrie Diaries

Nyx Megashine Lipgloss

Perfect

Lollipop

Copper Penny


I've started using some of these and they were all great except for the loreal foundation which i've tried for atleast 5 times cause it was really really good and the color was just perfect but it broke me out :| The Etude House BB Magic Cream was okay the only problem I've had with it so far is that I obviously can't wear it during the warmer months because its oily or rather, it removes all those oil controlling properties of the face making you look like you didn't even bathe and you just got out of the gym. :| but i'll consume it anyway ;)
