These Cute To The Core shoes are the cutest!!! 😍
I just bought a pair at Zooshoo and I’ll definitely wear them to work!
Which one do you think I bought? 😉
Can’t wait to wear them!
As we bid adieu to September, I will try to give a gist of what happened to my summer-long hiatus on this blog. I am not going to spill everything (no TMI!), but I will mention here anything that I can think of that is beauty-related and blog-worthy to post.
Let me start with my firsts this summer…
First PINCHme Box
What is PINCHme? According to their website, what you do is “answer a series of questions about your household and shopping habits in the Member Profile. We’ll learn what you like and offer samples just for you.” They are free of charge, no shipping and handling fee and all you need to do is answer the questionnaire on their website set for each sample that you received. I’m sorry if my picture is quite an odd combination (don’t worry, the cheese isn’t a revolutionary facial scrub 😅). Like what I got, you can get a different range of products from beauty-related to food, two things I like 😆.
First Influenster VoxBox
My first reaction when I got my I Do VoxBox was, “I do! I do love it!”. Who wouldn’t?!
So what is Influenster? On their website, it is “a community of over 1.5 million social savvy shoppers that: Stay on top of the latest product news & expert tips. Review products, share honest opinions with brands and the community. Test products for free based on social media influence.”
So like PINCHme, you will get to answer surveys for them to determine if you will be eligible for a campaign. For the “I Do VoxBox”, I guess the reason I got qualified was because I would go to a wedding (last August) when I got the survey around June or July. The VoxBox is free of charge as it is complimentary for testing purposes and you will have a fun “To Do List” to earn “badges”. They also have numerous contests that you can participate. I actually won something, ehem.
I love everything in my I Do VoxBox but two full-sized makeup products!!! Happiness, right?!

Exciting summer for my firsts!
Now on the second part of this post, I’ll just show every beauty-related products I bought at Walmart, Target, K-mart, Trader Joe’s, Sephora, Ulta and Nordstrom.
Except for makeup. They deserve a different post. 😅
For the Hair…
For the Face…
…and a Gucci perfume deluxe sample from Sephora
I just received an exciting email a few hours ago about the new collection of MAC (Make-Up Art Cosmetics).
It is colorful and vivacious! Gotta have some!
The packaging is a wonderful reminder of summer! Give me some piña colada, please!
I try to restrain myself, aka, my credit card so I ONLY ordered two products. It was a total of $44.52 inclusive of tax and without shipping fee (jump high!).
The other shades are Creme d’Nude (which was sold out after a few minutes, gah!), Morange and Steam Heat.
I feel ecstatic with this! I haven’t bought any Mac blush yet and I’m dying to have one. The other shade of the blush is Crisp Whites. Cute name, isn’t it!
I have disappointed myself before for waiting for some time to purchase limited edition MAC products. This time around, I went ahead and dived in before they all got sold out. I don’t want to be left washed out and dried again, eh.
The Mac Wash & Dry collection will be available in stores on May 21, 2015.
Ready for make-up shopping?!
***All pictures are from MAC.***
I left a lot of my clothes, shoes and bags when I moved here in the US. I miss my stuff but I didn’t want to spend a lot on airport baggage fees.
To simply put it, I need clothes. I can live, for now, with the bags and shoes that I have. So far, to shop for clothes, I already went to Macy’s, JCPenney, Kohl’s and Gap. I couldn’t bring myself from shopping too much because I don’t have a job yet. But with the clothes that I bought recently, I find myself choosing more “classic” designs and less trendy. Gone are the days of my flashy color tops and dresses.
My husband got himself a Macy’s Card when we first shopped together there. He was able to get an additional 20% off from our purchases for that day.
The nearest JCPenney at our house is inside the local mall and the choices are limited. You see, in the Philippines, malls are humongous and are almost always crowded so shopping here was different to say the least.
I like shopping at Kohl’s. Our local Kohl’s may not be as big as our Macy’s but I like their rewards program, the Kohl’s Cash.
I haven’t bought anything from Gap before so this was a first. Gap products are a lot more expensive in the Philippines.
That’s it, so far, and hopefully not the last, lol.😂😅
But to end this post in a nice note, I’ll show you something that I purchased from Fort McHenry.
