September Collective Haul

I feel that it's been a long journey from the time I posted my last collective haul before this. I love every piece of this haul. I think this is the only haul that I didn't spend anything on. The items from these post were from sponsors, earnings from blog work in exchange of a product, winnings and samples.
Romwe clothes

Nose Lifter
Romwe Bag
Lamido Purchases
Travalo Atomiser

Ponds and Benefit Loot

Samples from Sample Room
I only paid for customs fee both on Romwe and Travalo orders while shipping fee for the Sample Room order. Aside from that, I got everything free of charge! I actually want to go on shopping but my budget's really tight because of the past concert I've been with and also, I'm saving so bad for a new phone. I always mention that I'll get one but it seems that I can't make it happen. I hope this time, I will be able to do so. :(

Wait for my October post and see if I will have fewer stuffs than the items here. I just hope I would get more blog work and blog earnings so I can splurge a bit. Hihihi :)

Any latest haul you are loving lately? I sooo love the Benefit and Ponds loot I got as a winning! The silver mirror was so dainty! Love the Travalo atomiser too. It looks so sophisticated! And the bag, oh gosh, it was so nice when worn! Okay, I will stop. I just love everything, really! ^_^

Let's all wait for my October loot and wait it will be greater than this! 'Till then.
Xoxo ♥

Review: Travalo

One of the things which is a hassle for me is to bring huge bottles of perfume inside my bag. Not that it only accumulates a huge amount of space but it also adds weight on the contents of the bag. Good thing I have a Travalo Perfume Atomiser with me.. 

Last week, when I received a message from Russell, the owner of the world renowned Travalo, I was so giddy with excitement that he will be sending me samples to try their product. I received the items few days after we exchanged message. I've heard many raves and reviews about Travalo and I was so happy to have received one.  Thanks Russell! 

What is Travalo by the way? Travalo is the refillable perfume bottle atomizer spray with the amazing Genie-S easy pump fill. 

The product was so luxurious. I like the very simple and sophisticated design of the name in front and the level of the perfume at the back.

It's also very simple to use. There's a small hole at the bottom where you can pump the perfume from it's original container to the Travalo Atomiser. 

I have the Elizabeth Arden perfume in a very big bottle. The letter marks were also scratched out already because it was squeezed inside the bag. You have to remove the spray nozzle from the perfume bottle and  place the Travalo on the stem and pump to fill.

After pumping to fill the Travalo Atomiser, you're good to go. It's fast, it's easy and it's very convenient for travels. Not to mention that Travalo is the a patented pump-to-fill refill system that keeps the fragrance where it belongs: in the bottle until you're ready to use it. It is so perfect for travel or handbags, and comes in different collectable colours! It is also AIRCRAFT APPROVED. It never leaks! 

Yay for me! (。◕‿◕。) 
  • Very convenient for everyday use and traveling.
  • Pump, pump, pump all the way!
  • Comes in different colors.
  • Very luxurious-looking.
  • No leaks.
Nay! (。◕︵◕。)
  • Some would say it's kinda expensive for $20 but I guarantee you, it's so worth it! ♥

Bought fromTravalo Webcite
Size:  86 mm, 65 sprays, 5 ml.

See? This is why I love Travalo so much that I bring it everyday wherever I go. I assure you, you'll love the product as much as I do. This is also a great present for Christmas. ♥

Review: Nose Lifter

Recently, I've been getting a lot of parcels and one of them is this new device I got which I really didn't know exist. Let me introduce to you - Nose Lifter.

Nose Lifter is a device that is inserted into the nose to perfect it's size and shape. It can fix a variety of nasal shape problems including but not limited to flat noses, wide and bulbous noses, hook noses, droopy noses, crooked noses, flaring nostrils, dorsal humps, side humps and many others.Unlike popular devices that does not work or will take months before reshaping can take place, Nose Lifter guarantees an instant dramatic result in just 30 seconds.

I was given two complete set. Each set consists of seven sizes. The secret in using this is to find the perfect size that will fit your nose. 

If you are also wondering if it's safe to use, details were written on what it is made up of. I may not be good with scientific terms but since it's a medical-grade plastic fiber, I bet it is safe to use. Also, the set is complete with instructions on how to use it. 

I provided a video below so you can see how it was used. I honestly had a hard time, documenting and doing it at the same time so the link will help you out.

Look at the results after using the Nose Lifter! Before and after photos were provided to you below.

It is indeed a non-surgical nose job in seconds! 

Yay for me! (。◕‿◕。) 
  • Effective in correcting different nasal problems
  • Comes in different sizes for sure fitting
  • Made of medical-grade, bacteria resistant, and hypoallergenic plastic fiber
  • Results can be seen after 30seconds
Nay! (。◕︵◕。)
  • Results not permanent. I like how effectively it fixes the problem but not for good. I am using it for two weeks now so let's see if after a month or so if there are changes.
  • Expensive. T_T

Price: $39.50
Bought from: Nose Lifter
Size:  7 sizes in a complete set

For those who wants to have an immediate nose-job like result, you can purchase this on their website. I suggest go with the complete set to check what's the right size for you. 

I am really amazed on how this worked out on me. I know you'll love this too so grabbed yours now! 
'Till my next post! Xoxo ♥

Review: Pixy Silky Fit Lipstick in Satin

I've been addicted with lipstick lately and I make it a point to use a different shade everyday when I go to work. I feel like I want to do it as often as I could. So here's another lipstick in the line - Pixy Silky Fit Lipstick in Satin. I got this on my April BDJ box

There were actually three different shades of lipstick in the April box but I gave the two to my sister and to my stepmother. I made them choose and this is what they left for me. :)

This creamy lipstick comes in a hydrating formula that softly colors your lips in a girly hue. It's perfect to wear during these hot summer months when you want to look fresh with minimal effort.

I love the pink packaging and the Pixy logo as well. Looks very girly. This is my first lipstick in a pink container and I am loving it.

I do not know if you notice a difference on the three shades because the first one on the left was single swiped followed my second swipe then third. As I can see it, I think they just all look the same. I guess it is just highly pigmented that's why it is not obvious that the one on the right got three swipes already. 

I like that this lipstick is very creamy. It gives that very girly color on your lips. Perfect for everyday use. 

Yay for me! (。◕‿◕。) 
  • Very cute packaging.
  • Very pigmented.
  • Affordable
  • It glides smoothly on the lips.
  • With Sweet Almond Oil and Vitamin E.
Nay! (。◕︵◕。)
  • They are not locally available. I hope this will become available at some kiosk in some malls  here in the province.

Bought from: Pixy(Got it from BDJ Box for April 2014)
Size:  3.8 g.

I'm loving this hue! How about you? :) 
Feel free to share your thought and comments on this product. Would love to hear from you guys! 

All the love. Xoxo ♥

Review: Too Cool For School Pumpkin Sleeping Pack

I am slowly pulling out and using my beauty box contents I received few months ago. Another review I will be having right now is this Too Cool For School product, the Pumpkin Sleeping Mask. 

This is actually my first time using a product from this brand because for one, we only have The Face Shop, Etude House and Missha here in SM Pampanga when it comes to Korean stores. Minus Etude store because they already closed their boutique at SM Pampanga. Since it is not accessible to get stuff from this brand, I considered it a good fortune that BDJ had this on their May box

A Korean product or any other product without English translation is again, (as I always say) a turn-off for me. It only means that I still need to do a research on how it is used. Since I already used a sample of this product which I got from BDJ event long before I got this, I already know how to use it. Since this is a sleeping mask, you just need to basically apply the product before going to bed. Rinse it off the next day. 

Upon opening, you will see that the tube has a covering which you need to peel off. I found it nice and clean that Korean full-size products has this covering; ensuring you that when you buy their products in stores, consumers would not dare to squeeze the content of a new product.

The product has a very thick consistency that you really can feel that it is moisturizing your skin during the night. I especially love using this in cold nights. At first, the scent is a bit strong but as the products sets in your face, it becomes a mild scent and I think you will like the smell.

Yay for me! (。◕‿◕。) 
  • Has a plastic covering which is very clean for me.
  • Very cute packaging.
  • Provides great moisture on the skin. 
  • Exfoliates to reveal silky smooth skin. 
  • Shields the skin from dry environment.
  • You will wake up with a glowing skin! ♥
Nay! (。◕︵◕。)
  • No English translation.
Bought from: Too Cool For School (Got it from BDJ Box for May 2014)
Size:  100 ml.

By far, this is my most favorite sleeping pack of all. I heard from other reviews that this is far better than Lineage and other sleeping packs out there.  I use this twice to thrice a week. If only I do not follow instructions, I would want to use this daily. Haha. Too much love for this Pumpkin Sleeping Pack. 

Have you tried the same product? What are your thoughts about it? I feel I have a glowing skin right now because I used it last night. I hope this review will make you decide on what sleeping pack to get next. :)

All the love! Xoxo ♥

Event: CNBLUE Can't Stop in Manila

We braved the heavy typhoon Mario from Pampanga to Manila yesterday just to attend last night's concert of CNBLUE which was held at SMART Araneta Coliseum! I know some would say that we're so crazy going all the way there knowing that the country was in such state but it would greatly affect us more if we didn't see them performing live here. Honestly, we were also hoping that the production would consider announcing the suspension of the event but I guess, they decided on what they think should really be done.

Since no announcements were made, we decided to leave early even though the event was in the evening to give way for the traffic, slow drive and such. Surprisingly, we arrived there more or less than 2 hours. Just the same travel time from Pampanga to Manila. We're thankful that we arrived safe and sound at the event's place.

I know my outfit was just so-so because of the heavy rain, I decided to wear shorts and just use Fitflops instead of dressing up in case there will be flood in areas we're going to pass. We were also equipped with the fangirl necessities like lightsticks, merch, tickets (of course!) and more!!!

We left around 11:00AM and arrived around 1PM in Manila so we had lunch at Pepper Lunch in Gateway. It's my first to try their dish. Yum! (that's my sister on the left. They always mistook us as twins!)

Let's start with the set of concert photos now, shall we? :) OMG! I'm on my fangirl mode and I still have a hangover which I think would last for another week or two. Right now, please cooperate with the loads of photos. Don't worry, I will link at the end of the post the other photos I have on the event.

A shot before the stage performance. Look at the towel, it really glows right? That's a good thing because CNBLUE can see me from afar. ^_^

Grabbed from my sister's phone
This is their first stage! Wow! Nice set! All of the sets were actually nice! ♥

The boys! Waaaahhhh!!! ♥ ♥ ♥

Jonghyun on guitars! He got nicer bod this time. It's all because of his sport. :)

Minhyuk on drums. So nice to see him again!  

Jonghyun again! So handsome, right? :) 

Main vocalist Yonghwa! The leader of the group! Love his voice forever! 

Jungshin with Yonghwa together. This is the part I nearly cried. Omo! I am so touched. This is a ballad song here.

While Junghin and Yonghwa were having their moment, Jonghyun and Minhyuk were together. Bromance? Hahaha.. Love these two! My first bias is Jonghyun and Minhyuk was second. 

Little surprise of the fans for Jungshin's birthday few days ago. A very cute cake for him!!! ♥

Everybody's singing for the birthday boy. ^.^ 

Selca with the  fans who watched the concert. 

Like any other events, there were freebies that were given away at the day of the event! Most were from different fans, even international ones. Thank you to those who gave these freebies to fans. Feel free to comment below if you're the one who gave these away. Gomawo! ♥

More photos can be seen on my personal FB account which I made public for you. We had more than 400+ photos excluding videos but we trimmed it down to 200++.

The night was incredibly awesome even though the venue wasn't packed with spectators. It really is indeed raining very very hard and there were a lot of places that were flooded not only in Metro Manila but other places as well. Boices did not take risk. The members who were very professional and kind understood the situation. Yonghwa even said that he will pray for us and very thankful for all those who graced the event. Minhyuk said in full Filipino, Salamat sa pagpunta kahit may bagyo! Oh it really touched their hearts! Ours as well! ♥

We are currently uploading videos and I will update this post once we had it all up and running. For now, enjoy some of the finish videos we have uploaded below. 

Until now, I am so hyped that I always look at the photos and watch at the videos again and again. I guess that's the disease Kpop concerts always bring here. Hahaha. I feel that this will last after a week or two or perhaps a month. When Super Junior was here, my fangirl life was on for a month. I guess it will slow down this time since this is my 2nd concert with these boys. :)

This post just can't contain my happiness at all! I got to see them again and met new KPOP friends. In a few months from now, I will need to experience the same feeling again so I better need to get my head straight.

See you  next year again Boices! ♥
