Weekend Food Trip at: Gumbo

I have dined at Gumbo a couple of times with my family but I only wrote about it once and it was almost 8 years ago!  (Read post HERE)

So fast forward to today, my family and I were hungry when we met at Robinsons Magnolia, we used to love to go for Pepper Lunch but we wanted somewhere quiet were we can easily catch up as Pepper Lunch is located at the Food Court of the mall.

So with hungry stomachs, we were back for yet another fun bonding with my brother and parents and I tell you, we never leave the restaurant hungry!

Baked Artichoke Formaggio
Grande Php395.00
These are freshly baked garlic bread chips (which I really love since they took the effort to make it a garlic bread instead of just regular bread).  I wish they added more Artichoke to it as I tasted mostly cream!

Lusting Over: The School of Satchel

I have always been a genuine leather-type of girl!  Brand names aren't important to me as I lean towards to practicality!  So I would rather "lug" a genuine leather bag than a faux-leather bag (branded or not) as the lifespan will only be around a year to a year and a half (max!)  

Trust me, I took notes, so I know!

One of my favorite local leather goods brand is Fino and I have always been on a lookout for brands that offers not only quality but also STYLE.  

I found that at the brand The School of Satchel - A homegrown Filipino brand born 2011, I've seen their online presence and store presence for years and I'm happily sharing to all of you my top picks!

Charlie Satchel in Midnight Blue

When these types of bags were fashionable 3-4 years ago, I stopped myself from getting one because I have always been a "huge bag" girl!  But seeing this color and design changed my mind!  This is a great bag to tote along with you for meetings!

Moringa-O2 2in1 Herbal Shampoo and Conditioner Review

I recently have issues with my scalp ever since the start of 2018!  It must be the weather or some allergic reactions to food, I honestly can't pinpoint it but it is starting to bother me like crazy!  

I have to re-shuffle and change some of my hair products and it was a wonderful timing when I got a sample of Moringa-O2 2in1 Herbal Shampoo and Conditioner (thanks Sampleroom).  I am too bothered to try ANYTHING that can help reduce itch and treat scalp!

Moringa-O2 2-in-1 Herbal Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and Conditioner is a safe and effective herbal anti-dandruff shampoo and conditioner which cleanses your scalp and moisturizes your hair at the same time!  It consists of Malunggay, Olive Oil, Sunflower Oil and Argan Oil which work together to provide gentle and no-fuss solutions that cleanses your hair and scalp without stripping off its essential oils.
It is also infused with Rosebay extract that decreases sebum production on the scalp while reducing the appearance of adherent and non-adherent flakes. It also provides a soothing anti-inflammatory action, making Moringa-O2 2-in-1 Herbal Anti-Dandruff Shampoo and Conditioner a lighter and milder alternative compared to leading anti-dandruff brands in the market.

Banila Co. Color Correct CC Color Spot Concealer Review

Who loves concealer and depend on them as much as I do?  Raise your hands please!
I use them up so much I keep on purchasing them!   As much as I have my favorites on top of my head, I can't help but try different brands and share to you my thoughts on them.

Are you ready for another concealer review this time from Banila Co.?

Well, technically, the real concealer from the brand is called Real Stay Concealer which I reviewed HERE,  the brand may be into natural-looking makeup, I was a bit surprised as well that they offer CC line (Color Correction).  Don't worry though, this line is more on the subtle side, not the PRO shades wherein you need to have a bit of makeup artistry background to be able to pull it off.

This is subtle, and I like it for daily use!
