November and December 2017 Collective Haul

Helloooo dear friends! I miss you all! It's been light-years since the last time I published something decent in this blog. Life has taken its toll on me and I am not less regretful about it. Let me share something new about me. 

My husband and I finally decided to get our own house. We used to rent before but now we have something we can call our own. Feels a little surreal but that's how adulting is meant to be you know. Haha. The feeling is different if you know you really worked your ass off to get something you want. Both our salary as government employee isn't really that high as others would think but I am proud to say that we managed to do it with no help from relatives abroad or whoever. 

Next is, I am establishing my own mommy blog. It's in the works and will be launched soon. There, I will be sharing my motherhood journey and experiences. I didn't know that motherhood would changed a lot in me and I want to share all those experiences in the blog. My colleagues would always say that I am a great mom because of all the advocacies I support for my child because they see what and how I do it when I at work. They actually wish I had more haha. If only they know about my difficulties and share of struggles in motherhood. Those and more will be shared soon on the new blog. 

So going back, after all the things we did in building the house and transferring huge furnitures, appliances, cabinets, among other things, finally, I can sit back, and enjoy a cup of hot choco. On the side is working on the blog of course, and getting updated again. I missed on a lot of posts and events but will catch up soon. So for now, let me share all my Nov-Dec haul for last year. I didn't have a lot to share but I am very grateful that despite I am MIA in the blog, there are still a lot of sponsors who are still supportive in sending me products. Thank you so muchos!!! 

Johnson's Haul
A staff from Johnson's & Johnson's messaged me on IG and asked if they can send me their newest products. Of course, I gladly said yes. Thanks J&J :) 

The Barber Club items
A gift from Miss Michelle of TBC when they invited us on the opening. of The Barber Club

Nay's Ice Candy
Nay's sent me ice candies worth P500. Don't worry, I didn't ate them in one sitting. 

Beauty products from Suzanne's Emporium
Suzanne's Emporium was one of my most fave online shop when it comes to beauty products because they sell items waaay affordable than the others. 

Mesoestatic from AMW
I won this one from AMW giveaway. Will share a review soon!

Sample Room Haul
My not so latest Sample Room haul. 

Toothbrush cover
I am looking for brush cover for the longest time. Daiso has them before but it's always OOS. I got this for less than P50 and has already 4 pcs. This is for my brush in the office, my bag, our home and my parent's home. Nice, noh?

Cradle and Cycles haul
This is winnings from a breastfeeding and babywearing contest and I won! Will share more on this on my mommy blog. 

My sister's gift! 
Since we moved to a new home, it is also fitting to have "some" new items. I actually requested for a new electric kettle since the old one is super old and served us well already. Thanks unnie! 

"Some" Miniso Haul
I actually got different items from Miniso and this is just one of them. I need nose strips and you know me, when I want to try a certain product, I pay for it in my own pocket and review about it. review soon! 

Soap Scraps
This is from my other sister who sell soaps. But these are just scraps of gluta-tawas. These were actually nice. I feel that I have glowing skin after using this. 

Revlon Haul
No. Not! This is my hubby's gift to me during Christmas. Before, he used to give me gadgets, cellphones even when we were just bf-gf. That lasted for 7 years! Now that we are husband and wife, we became practical especially that we have our baby and a new home. We almost used up our money on the house so we agreed not to spend anything on Christmas anymore. And we both understand. But he still insisted with this. I love you amore, but I hope it's a different brand or something satin or matte! Haha. 

Vice Cosmetics Haul
As I was walking at SM Pampanga, I saw the booth where there's Vice and of course, I immediately bought something to try. I actually wanted to try this and purchase online. Good thing there's an available one at the mall. Will try this very soon and will review on the blog. 

Bag
This is so random. We are actually at the mall to buy some last minute items for media noche when we decided to buy some wine. Since we didn't brought the car that time (and was just using the motorcycle), we decided to purchase this so we can load the wines and other liquor inside. 

"Another" Miniso Haul
I saw this at Miniso and immediately bought it since it's cute. I thought it's a face mask but it's some eye mask. Will share a review on this soon.

Gift
My friend's husband went home from Dubai and got something for me. Thanks Jeff. And for the daily lunch you were delivering for us. 

Lazada Haul
I joined the Online Revolution Sale from Lazada and got these items. Love all of these. All items at 50%. I already used the hair color and will share the review soon.

Exchange gift
Thanks to my friend Mik who gave this to me during our year-end party. 

Exchange gift
Thanks to my friend Cams who gave this. She crocheted my baby's minion hat on his bday. Thanks gurl. :)

Exchange gift
Thanks to my friend Arms for this. I love you sis! 

These may look a lot but they really aren't. Most of the items here are gifts from friends, sponsors, winnings and the rest were purchased by my own money. I guess next month's collective haul will focus on beauty, clothes and those that are related to the beauty blog alone. Will create a separate post on my new upcoming blog for those that I will get under mommy and home department. 

I hope you will continue supporting me here and in my new humble web abode. 
All the best! Xoxo.
