Event: Mini Make your own HAVAIANAS

Hello ladies!!!

Last Sunday (May 26, 2013),  I was lucky enough to catch up with the last day of Mini Make your own Havaianas event at Robinsons Ilocos Norte.  Right after our company summer outing I hurriedly visited the area to create my own design.  

It was already late, really raining so hard and I was in an after-swimming-hangover look but I had fun.  Thanks to Aegi who kept me company all through out.
We were welcomed by the very nice owner, Ms. May Ann who made the night really comfortable.
The place was filled with Havaianas everywhere that it took me forever to decide what color to grab...blame it on my fickle mind lol.
Fellow Havaianaticos flocked the assembly area where the choices of sole, strap and pins were assembled.
Here is a picture of me, waiting eagerly for my very own customized Havaianas.  Sorry guys,  I am quite wasted and drained from the office activity but "very happy".
And yes I am pleased to show you my new pair of flip flops, Alien Princess!!!  Basically,  this design is sooooo me.  May I quote Raya who said that my design is so like me, out of this world lol.  Well, I admit I am eccentric and really unpredictable hahaha.
I settled for yellow sole..."Look at the stars, look how they shine for you, and everything you do and it was called yellow".  One of my favorite color and one of my favorite song from Coldplay.
 And for the strap,  I want it green to match my prince's lol.
By the way, thanks also to Sir Bernard for the free pin because they ran out of bag.  Honestly, I love the pin more lol.  I chose the spaceship since I wanted to go somewhere far from everyone's gaze.
And there you are my out-of-this-world flip flops, please take me to good places and give me many nice memories!!!

For Havaianas products, please visit Red Dot, Laoag City!!!

Random Thoughts: The Beautiful Dilemna

They say don't be someone's down-time, spare-time, part-time, or sometime.  If they can't be there for you all the time then they're not even worth your time.

Easier said than done right?  Sometimes we meet that one wrong person at the crossroads and yet we choose to travel that trek for all the reasons we don't understand...or maybe with the  hope that the wrong person might be the right one (just sayin' though).  

Stubborn heart...

Random Thoughts: My Maverick

Watching every motion in my foolish lover's game 
On this endless ocean finally lovers know no shame 

Turning and returning to some secret place inside 

Photo Credits: Google Photos
Watching in slow motion as you turn around and say 

Take my breath away
Watching I keep waiting still anticipating love 
Never hesitating to become the fated ones 
Turning and returning to some secret place to hide 
Watching in slow motion as you turn to me and say... my love... 
Take my breath away 
Through the hourglass I saw you, in time you slipped away 
When the mirror crashed I called you, and turned to hear you say 
If only for today I am unafraid 
Take my breath away
Watching every motion in this foolish lover's game 
Haunted by the notion somewhere there's a love in flames 
Turning and returning to some secret place inside 
Watching in slow motion as you turn my way and say

Review: Holika Holika Miracle Real Skin Finish for Combination / Oily Skin

Hey ladies!!!

How did your weekend go?  Well, today is really muggy here in Ilocos so my boy and I decided to eat our breakfast out and grabbed ourselves some fruity flavored floats.  Hahaha these drinks are keepin' me frenzied these past weeks!!!  Seriously, nights were not complete without dosing up with either Lychee or Strawberry (Now, blame the fast food for the serious weight chalk up. Yikes!!!).  

But before I can finally call it a night (ohhhh which means I have to drag myself tomorrow to work again) lemme just drop somethin' pretty and cute... check it out!!!
Product Description
Holika Holika Miracle Real Skin Finish is an all in one cream that functions as a base and sunscreen with its SPF25, and whitens or brightens the bare skin.
1. For Normal / Dry Skin (Peach Tub)
2. For Combination / Oily Skin (Lavender Tub)

Content: 50 g
Availability:  all Holika Holika outlets and counters (not yet available here at P.I. though)
Price:  PhP475.00  (from Korean Cosmetics for Less / KKochipida)

For ingredients check out the pic below:
Packaging wise, this cream is popularly known as the "butterfly cream" in Korea because of  its presentation.  Honestly, I am wowed by the box alone hahaha. I so love anything pretty and cute.  It is something I'll never get tired of no matter how I age hahaha.
 Below are the details on the sides of the box where all instructions are in Hangeul.
 Again, the tub is purely LOVE.  It comes in a pretty purple jar that is very very sturdy and a bit handy for travelling (it's not that big).  

Also, at the bottom of the tub is the expiration date and mine says it's good until November 7, 2015.  
Apart from the exquisite and princess-y twist-it-type cover it also has a a separate lid to protect the precious cream inside.  The only thing they missed though is the spatula.  I find it unhygienic to frequently dip in the fingers every time I apply it.  Well,  it can be solved by a tiny spoon though.
The cream's scent is quite strong in baby-powder-ish-like which might be troublesome to others.  I find it good though because it fades after the cream sets.
As for the cream, it is lusciously thick and white but has a kinda pinkish tint if you look closely.
It may also look scary white especially when used by a typical "morena" Filipina.  I am already quite fair but still it looks really odd on my skin on initial application.  This is supposed to be used just to revamp the bare skin a bit but I prefer using it as a primer instead.
But when it finally sets, it actually doesn't look like you have something on your face.  (pic below is my bare hand)

This picture is taken under natural lighting and it's quite fair on me.  It did make my skin look healthier and bright (I think so). 
Honestly, its sheerness can't provide coverage but this cream is great as always on fortunate ladies with flawless skin.  It adds up radiance and somewhat evens out the tone of the skin.  Since, I am not as lucky as the other girls, I like using this underneath my usual bb cream, liquid foundie or powder.

As for the oil control,  which I expected this to provide better control which got me a bit dismayed since it greased up my skin faster than expected.  Maybe the brightening effect makes me oil up. 
Frozen Blossoms' thoughts:
This cream is perfect to ladies with healthy pores and unblemished skin.  It provides instant dewiness that makes the skin lookin' radiant.  Plus if you hate makin' your face with a lot of powders and foundies, this can make be an easy step to plump up the dull skin.  On the other side, although this variant is meant for ladies with combination to oily skin, still oil control is a minus.

So that's it for tonight!!! Have a happy heart and by the way just a thought it is always rewarding to be nice to everyone!!!

Random Thoughts: Fourth of May

Frozen Blossoms' thoughts:  I'll never try to look back instead I'll move forward and smile because it happened and it made me a better person.  And no matter what transpires I'll never ever regret any decisions I made, I make and I will make.

Today is a brand new day, I may not be able to laugh the brightest and smile the prettiest but I'm sure everything will be okay just like how it used to be.

There's a difference between goodbye and letting go.  Good bye is "I'll see you again when I'm ready to hold your hand, and when you're ready to hold mine."  Letting go is "I'll miss your hand. I realized it's not mine to hold,  and I will never hold it again..."

  Good morning. =)
