January Collective Haul

It's been a while since I last blog. I've been busy with my students grades and cards-out. Especially now that it's the 3rd quarter and some of my advisory class have failing grades. There were really a lot of things to do. Also, my grand-mom passed away and I am still in mourning so everything's quite difficult for me right now. I feel that I am so stressed these past few days. I badly need a break, a HUGE break!

Anyway, I am still thankful that the first month of 2015 has it's ups despite of the downs. Did I mentioned before that I am finally engaged? Well, yes. I AM FINALLY ENGAGED! (*insert happy dance here*) It was a casual, ringless proposal. Not the lavish and 'popular to my friends' type. I want everything to be simple and practical. ^_^

Apart from being engaged, another 'up' for this month were my little blessings. I got a good number of gifts from sponsor and bought a little for myself. I am saving badly so can't splurge right now. Here are my items for this month.
Human ♥ Nature's Natural Shampoo and Peppermint Lipbalm
I had problems with my scalp the past week. I don't know what happened but my scalp turned really really dry. Perhaps it's because of the shampoo and conditioner from the US which my aunt gave. Turned out it's really strong for my hair so I stopped using it and bought this shampoo together with the lipbalm. I already used up my lipbalm so I need to get a new one.
Strip It's Wax, Makeup Remover, Aloe Vera and a Body Wash freebie
I used up all my wax from Strip It! so I bought another tub and this time it's the largest one.I bought new items together with the wax since I really trust the brand and it's products. 
Kleenex, Chi foot patches, and Eye Pads.
I passed by Watsons yesterday because I was looking for a certain product but when I didn't found what I was looking for, I found this! Watsons is indeed a cave of treasure for me. Bought these Kleenex at a very very affordable price. 
BDJ Highlights Winnings
Got my winnings from BDJ. Again the Salvatos won't fit. :( I'm a small size and I won 2 medium sized from BDJ's contest already. I might give them away soon so watch out! ♥
Craft-O-Maniac PH craft items
When I hosted the giveaway last month, my sponsors sent me items apart from the prizes. I got this from Craft-O-Maniac PH
Romwe Bag
I still have a few gift certificate from Romwe and I am selling them out so I can add to my savings (details above). 
An officemate of my sister asked me to buy this using my GC and paid me instead. :) 
DKNY (#MYNY) samples
After a very long time, I finally got these samples from DKNY. I don't remember when I registered for these but somehow they still arrived. Thanks DKNY!

Apart from the photographed items above, I also received my winnings from a certain blog contest. The prizes includes a frying pan, two pot holders and a few samples from Knorr. Forgot to take photo of those and immediately used them for cooking. Just as excited as I was when I received parcels. 

I hope I can move on to February with a lighter heart and mind. I want to do something that will give my mind and body peace. During these days, I actually hoped I have a prayer group which can help me with all the trials I'm experiencing right now. My mind and body was really, really tired and I don't know why. Hope I can recover on this state soon. 

Anyway, thanks to everyone who sent me items this month. Hoping for more next month. Hihi. Will blog more soon once I have more time on my hands. Stay safe and healthy everyone! ♥

    1. I got it from Romwe sis. You can buy it directly from them or if you want, I can buy it for you and just pay me thru bank instead. That is, if you don't have a Paypal or a credit card. :)
