Just Raving: NIVEA Extra Whitening Deodorant

Sorry guys again for the absence. February is quite a busy month for me as most of my loved ones are celebrating their birthday this month. Not to mention the other occasions and makeup gigs hehe :)

Anyways, I just want to share with you guys the only whitening deodorant that worked on me. I'm not saying that I have a UA to be ashamed of haha. but after giving birth, my UA's texture changed and the color became uneven a bit. I've used Skin White deo for over a year as one of my cousins recommended it as it worked on her. It's ok as an anti-perspirant but in terms of whitening...I didn't see any change. So when NIVEA sent me their Extra Whitening deodorant line, I didn't expect much.


It promises 48 hours of protection and whitening effect in just 2 weeks. I haven't tested this product for  48 hours because I like taking a bath everyday :) haha. And I apply this product every after bath. That's how I like it. After 2 weeks of using it, I didn't notice its whitening effects. But I kept on using it (I think for 2 months now ). And just one day while grooming my UA in front of the mirror, I noticed that promised effect. My hubby agreed too!

Well...I don't have the guts to post photos of my UA here so you just have to try yourself for you to believe me. Sorry! But this product is really worth trying. I think I'll me sticking with this for a long time.

Winner of Estee Lauder ANR giveaway!

Congratulations of Hedley Chua "dustbunny"! I'll be sending you a bottle of the Estee Lauder ANR within the week.


I read a lot of inspiring comments on the post. I know most of us wants to look younger. Having beautiful skin boosts our confidence in so many aspects. But there are instances that we couldn't avoid the things that damage our skin that's why there are products like Estee Lauder ANR to help combat those. That's why Hedley's answer was the best for me. Thank you for all those who joined! I really appreciate it. I hope you join my next giveaway again.

And to Hedley...I'll be sending you an email :) Congratulations again!

The Day I Forgot to Wear Pink


This photo was taken during the Pinkbox Blogger Event happened a few weeks ago. As you can see I was the only one who's not in pink sigh


But there was actually some pink color on the print of my dress which are not obvious enough to save me from humiliation haha....So I wear this pretty headband Pinkbox gave me as a gift right away for the motiff of the event. I'm with Ms. Nelly See, the owner of Pinkbox and Liz of ProjectVanity, Brand Manager of Pinkbox, in this photo.

But my excuse for this mistake....the night before I was busy preparing for a makeup gig for these lovely ladies. I confirmed my attendance to the event because the place where I was going to do their makeup was so near and the time I was supposed to finish my job was an hour before the there you go...excuses excuses excuses....good thing Pinkbox people are sooo nice that I didn't even feel awkward the whole time.


The girls while their hairs are being set.


Most people probably know that you can only find cute accessories for little girls at Pinkbox. But look carefully and you'll find soo many items for adults too. So many can work out on different looks and yes even edgy styles. They have stationeries and charms too,






Got these as welcome gift. awesome!

The event was held at Sweet Bela Cafe at Burgos Circle Fort Bonifacio. It was my first time to try their food and I really enjoyed each dish they served especially their desserts.







There were prizes for the best dressed.


Fashion blogger Vern Enciso won. Very pretty girl!


Julia of blessmybag won as well


Girls goin gaga over the accessories buffet. It was such a treat. I've already posted some of the things I took home in this post. I love Pinkbox!

Another Brush Cleaner Love: Cinema Secrets Professional Brush Cleaner

Last December was one of my craziest months as wedding gigs are on even on weekdays. During those times when I don't have the time to deep clean my brushes and let them dry for hours, brush cleaners are my best friend. I've finished a couple bottles of HD Brush Cleaner and recently I've tried the brush cleaner Cinema Secrets gave me which I also love.


Dirty brushes to be washed :)
Brush holder and brush guards bought from Suesh
Cinema Secrets Professional Brush Cleaner



What I love most about this product is that it removed the stains other brush cleaners or even washing with shampoo or Joy anti-bacterial dish washing liquid can't effortlessly.


Here's how I use it: Pour a small amount of the brush cleaner on a container. Dip the dirty brush lightly. Then wipe it on a cloth or tissue.




It says wait 10-15 minutes to dry for big brushes and 5 minutes for the smaller types but in my experience, it dries faster than that. Brushes feel oh so soft after they dry up with it and smells good too. I'm not so sure if everybody will love the scent but I like it :)

I'll be giving one bottle of this on my next posts so watch out for it!

One happy day....

Hubby and I celebrated our 3rd year wedding anniversary last Tuesday. For the past years, I always feel giddy a day before our anniv because my hubby loves surprising me with things. I wasn't expecting something big but he never fails to make me feel special even though a lot has changed ever since the little "kulit" came into our lives hehe.

I had no clue where my hubby's taking me that day. He said that we'll go wherever URY (the name of our car) takes us. So I dressed up a little and put on a light makeup, prepared baby's things before bringing him to his lola (yes that day was for just the two of us haha).


We had breakfast at Coffee Bean in Promenade, Greenhills. Above is a photo of me showing off my new accessories from the Chic collection of Pinkbox. I attended their event a few weeks ago which I'll blog soon. Who would have thought that Pinkbox are not only for cute girls but for kikay yuppies too?  If you're looking for affordable chic accessories, Pinkbox is worth checking out. I've been to their Megamall branch a lot of times already after the event.



Week 2 of using Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair. I know it's not my bare face again but I only had BB cream and Revlon Translucent Loose Powder on. I still can't see improvement on my pimple scars but I love the glow it gives me. don't you?


It was my first time to have breakfast at Coffee Bean (the maker of my favorite Ice Blended Mocha Frappe). They have a nice selection of breakfast meals. I had scrambled eggs, sausage, bread and coffee while hubby had bagel with cream cheese and of course cafe latte.


Then he surprised me with this nice pair of earrings. Actually, this isn't a suprise anymore because I saw him at a shop last Sunday looking this so I already had a hint haha.


The lighting at Coffee Bean was nice so I decided to take photos of my favorite NIVEA lip balms which are staple in my bag already. I've used this during college as I love how smooth my lips are when using this plus it has a hint of color. Thanks NIVEA for sending me new stocks :)



Then for lunch, we went to Angel's Kitchen along Greenhills too. It's a hidden treasure in GH because they're place isn't really noticeable but they have really great food. It was recommended to Pau by his friend because it's one of his family's favorites.



Blooming Tea


Kani Salad


Chicken Salpicao...yummm yummm


Their signature salmon topped with baked potato. This is a must try!


We loved the ambiance too.


Choco Lava for dessert.

After that we watched Underworld 3 and a bit of shopping. Just like our usual date when we were still dating...We miss those days and it was fun having it even just once a year. But our lives are so much happier now and complete because of our little Angel :)
