shameless FOTD + Current Skincare

Wednesday, June 4


hi momsies! pardon for this shameless post. 
i missed blogging about my current skin care, i brought two products yesterday for me to try out, 
really i think i deserve this self love due to the fact that i haven't had enough sleep.

i needed a break. 
and some skin care routine for my haggard face.

i have with me now the clean and clear compact powder, i love that it is only 170 pesos. 
for olay it is roughly 190 pesos.
i think this would get me a long way. wouldn't be bad to try this out and see what effect it has on
my oily face. =)

my current products to try out: OLAY face lotion and Clean and Clear Oil Control Powder


the sponge is a plus for me 

closer look

and of course, the face using these two products:

View my previous SKIN CARE ROUTINES.

If you are in Cebu and haven't heard of this cute shop in J Centre Mall, Well now is time that I'd show you what we have just discovered over the weekend. It is this really cute craft and gift store called CREATIVE CORNER.



The 3 musketeers, Allen, me and Adi went over to the mall for some stroll and just cool down.
bonding -bonding moments!

Here is mine and Adi's outfit of the day:

WHAT I WORE: Thrifted clothes =)
ADI: SHIRT-Manila Ocean Park, Short- SM, Sandals - Metro AYALA dept store

We ate some halo-halo from Razon's and after that we then strolled the mall.
I was happy to see this store that sells really cute items, I found out that these items were imported all the way from Taiwan and Korea.


They are located at the 3rd floor of J Centre Mall. Near Cebu Trick Art Museum.
If you wanna know the prices, you can go check them out. =)

5 Frugal Tips for the Working Mommies

Wednesday, May 21



As a working mom, the best way to maximize our earnings is being frugal.
After all, we have to leave our beloved little darlings at home every day to earn a decent income and be able to sustain it for their needs.
We must be able to manage our money wisely and make the most of our hard-earned moolah, right?
It only takes discipline and a strong willing determination combined with the tough love we have for our little munchies that we have been striving these all for.


There are tips and mantras that we all can live by and make them a habit. Hurray to a more Frugal Lifestyle. More Happiness and a lesser stressed face. =)

1. Eliminate impulsive buying on your credit cards.

I am a victim, as of the moment, I still have a balance on my current ccard.
But I am getting there, One tip. Do not use your credit card to pay online for useless purchases. Think Needs! not wants. Never use it when it is not really needed. Never bring one with you during malling.
Use it only for emergencies. Remember: EMERGENCIES.

So good luck to me =)

2. Bringing LUNCH BAON to work.

I have been sticking to this just recently. I am buying my food at the affordable carenderia outside our place.
The viand is just around 10 to 20 pesos. Will really save me money if I buy at the workplace cafeteria, since the viand costs about 20 to 40 pesos. I also get to eat really healthy home made food. spell nomnom.

3. Going UKAY UKAY Shopping.

Thrift shopping is way cooler and can save you a lot of money. Plus these stores offers a lot of fashion finds from dresses, vintage shoes, bag and others. Read about some of my Ukay Haul Adventure around Cebu here.

4. Have your grocery list ready.

Always  shop with that list. And learn to discipline your self when making purchases.
This way you can gain more from your money and buy only those things needed. My take on these is not easy but I am slowly also using this tool and it has helped me control my spending and my budget. I use my smartphone to have that list as well, so it becomes really handy.

5. Refrain from being online or using FACEBOOK

If you're a person who is easily persuaded by what the eyes sees, then better put down your facebook and get down to your household chores. Facebook is very deceptive. It deceives you of what reality is and what true happiness really is. It is not about the places, the great clothes, the fabulous life that your fb friends are having on your feed, it is about connection. If it's not getting the best for you, then get over it. and Smile! =)
I did this and soon became happier and not bothered about the material things my fb friends are posting on their walls/ timeline. =)

Good Luck momsies!
Let me know your tips as well. =)
