Althea Korea Turns 1! (unboxing haul)

Hey guys, I know this post is prolly way too long overdue but just so you know, I currently don't have any laptop to use (boo hoo!) and though I am planning to get a new one soon, I can't seem to choose which one I like. But anyhoo, enough of the blabbing.. it's better late than never right? 

So anyway, the awesome people from Althea Korea were generous enough to invite me and celebrate its very 1st birthday last July 20th of 2016! They sent me their pretty limited edition birthday box complete with a DIY party kit inside that I adore so much.

FYI: Few months ago, I was one of the lucky few who were contacted by Althea to get the first dibs of their products when they launched their website here in the PH. If you're like me and obsessed with korean skincare, you might wanna check them out because they carry a lot of korean products from very well known brands (such as Laneige, skinfood, Etude, Innisfree, etc.) to newest brands available. You name it, they probably have it! What's even more fab is that they sell the items a lot cheaper than the malls we have here. Take note, they are 100% authentic from korea and will be delivered straight to your door step without having to worry about paying tax, etc. And they have free shipping for every Php1,300 worth of products! PLUS Php300 free credit when you first sign in, Go SIGN UP HERE and get crazy ladies!!!

Taiwan continuously reinforces its importance as the Philippines’ trading partner. According to 2015 Philippine Statistics Authority data,Taiwan is the 4th top import country (with 5.2 billion USD imports) and the 9th top export country (with 2.2 billion USD exports) in the world. With this, Taiwan Excellence campaign, which is organized by Bureau of Foreign Trade (BOFT) of Taiwan government and implemented by Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), is again rolling out for the third year in the Philippines to further strengthen trading ties between the two countries.

Menow Kissproof Review and Swatches

As promised I will be posting my review regarding this super popular Kissproof Lipstick from Menow. This has been getting a lot of raves in every social media for the past few weeks and I thought I'd share what I thought about them without sugarcoating.

Seaweed Skincare Line from The Body Shop (Review)

Oh hey! Long time no post! I know.. Well it's 2016 I might as well make a new post after a long while of hiatus.. So anyways, today I just wanted to review this seaweed skincare line from the body shop that I just recently devoured and finished. Since I have a combination to oily skin I decided to give this a go. I've been hearing a lot of good stuff about this line from the body shop so when this travel size set went on sale last christmas, I purchased this immediately.

Designer Brands Haul and First Impression

Last November 19, 2015 I placed an order to the DB Cosmetics site. I was so excited to see that they ship worldwide for just AUD $10! I've been seeing their products on Instagram most especially the Pro Contour Palette that many bloggers claim that it was apparently a great dupe for the KatvonD contour palette. I wanted to find it out myself (not that I have tried the KatvonD-- I would just love to try their contour palette because of the raves) so I immediately placed an order before it runs out. On the site it says that International Shipping may take 10-15days, I was worried because they didn't provide me with a tracking number it just says on the site whether your package was still on process, shipped or complete.. but to find out where the hell exactly is your package, you just gotta have to check it with your postal office from time to time. I visited mine yesterday December 4, 2015.
