Mann Hann was our first choice but unfortunately there were sooo many people in line so Pau's mom suggested Super Bowl as an alternative.
Bday boy and meee
Mama and Papa
This is currently 50% off. We only paid P127/$2.54 for this.
(Does anyone of you know how to rotate the pics? I'm so dumb I can't figure it out arrghh haha.)
When I first tried Super Bowl (about 2 years ago maybe)...I was not really happy with their food. I can't remember why. But last Saturday, I was really satisfied. Their food is quite affordable too. We only paid P800+/$16+ for all of these.
The SuperBowl in SM Megamall is located at the 4th level Building A (correct me if I'm wrong) in the newly renovated part. I'm really glad SM decided to add that part. They got so many cool stores and restos now. hehe
Have a nice day everyone!
When my dad confirmed that he is coming here last January...I asked my youngest sister (who is in Florida) if she could buy some stuff from Sephora for me and I'll just pay her. I tried my card but unfortunately they only accept US issued ccs sigh. Then she told me not to send her the money anymore coz she'll just give them to me as gifts....weeee! Thanks Ella. yipee yipee yipee...
Here they are:
And here's what my mom got me. An Estee Lauder bag with filled with makeup =) I was asking for Urban Decay but she got this instead. She thought they're the same hahaha! But loved the goodies! Thanks mom...luv u
And here's my haul. I only spent $4 for the shipping and asked my dad to bring it here =D
angled liner (love this!) Thanks for the review Nikki!
and a sample
I bought the gel liners with the intention of selling them here. But I've used the 24k and I'm already attached to it. I'll just use them all hahaha.
It's a happy day today. The first email I read from my boss is about the holiday this wednesday and we have the option to take that day off...yipppeeee! Wish everyone would have a great day too =) Ciao.

She was supposed to go to our house around 11am but she wasn't feeling well that morning so she asked me if she could come 12:30pm instead. Texted her "Sure..what time is the wedding?". But she didn't reply. (Don't worry Angel! I understand and it's really ok hehehe...just completing my story =D)When she got here, asked her again "What time is the wedding?"...she said "1:30pm". "OMG! We have to hurry...are you part of the entourage or just a guest?"......"No, guess whose wedding is it?"....."uhmmmm"...."it's my wedding ate kim!"
Whoooaaaaa...I didn't know I was going to do a makeup for a wedding in just 30 mins wth! But she said it's just a civil wedding and she really wanted it simple...olrighty! hehehe. I really tried my best I promise!. I wish I could have taken better pics if we have more time =(. But she said it's pretty and she liked it anyway so I'm happy. Thank you so much Angel and i wish you all the happiness! Take care of yourself and the baby =D

What I like about this product:
1) It has the best applicator among the liquid eye liners I have.
2) It's affordable. If I remember correctly, I got this on sale at Glorietta for only 200 bucks.
3) It dries really fast.
4) It doesn't smudge.
What I don't like:
1) When I tried applying it on my waterline before, it hurt a little a few secs after application.
What else??? hmmm...that's all I could think of. I'll definitely buy this product again once I've finished some of my liners =) I've already added this to my list of good stuff. Or if they go on sale again...I'll definitely buy the black one. haha
How about you? What's your favorite eye liner? Give me suggestions please =D

Unfortunately, my nail cracked a day before my big day waaaahhhh. So I asked my sister-in-law to go with me to SM Megamall and look for a salon that offers fake nails services or whatever but we didn't find any except for Tips and Toes Nail Salon. However (again!!!), all their staff were booked that day already. The girl on the reception said I could wait until 7pm that day if there's a client that will cancel...I told myself I can't risk that anymore..huhu. So we asked her to call their other branches if they have available staff to do it for me. Thank God there's one in Greenbelt1.
Nail extensions by Tips and Toes
This is really amazing esp for emergency cases like what I have experienced. Pretty nails in an instant! According to the lady, this can last for a month. How much did I pay for this? P1200/$24. It's quite pricey but it's worth it....I love tips and toes! Thank you so much!
Back to the topic, my dad came here from Florida to attend my wedding. And he surprised me with this!
I was asking for my sister's old camera but he bought me a new one instead. Isn't he sweet? I can now post better pictures yey!
My dad is now back in the US...I miss him already =(
I love to blog about my make-up, beauty, parenting, and other personal adventures in this site.
