AMW Reviews: The Body Shop All-in-One Instablur

How much do I love primers?
A LOT!  And mind you, I don't use them a lot but I make sure to use them on my clients!  I bring with me different primers for different skin types!  I just want to make sure I cover them all!

That's why when I learned about the new InstaBlur from The Body Shop, well, this primer is meant to be the perfect primer to use if you want to "Blur" out skin imperfections like the programs you use for your photos!  Who doesn't like to bring those blurring skills from Photoshop to life?  I know I want them!  I immediately gave this a test and read further below to see if this passed my standard to be part of my "Primers Kit".

AMW Reviews: Macadamia Natural Oil Flawless Cleansing Conditioner

When I visited Piandre Salon at FORT for a Macadamia Muse Party, I saw Drea, owner of Piandre Salon whom I met years ago when I had my Keratin treatment at Straight and Smooth salon.

She took one look at my hair and told me I have a "unique" hair texture, she's probably just being nice!  My hair was in bad shape!  So she handed me a Macadamia Natural Oil Flawless Cleansing Conditioner in 3oz 90ml to try!  She told me this product is unique and a bit tricky to use!  I told her I take the challenge and I'll try this product!

True enough, it took me weeks, almost a  months to finally get the hang of using this product!  

Did I get your attention on why this product is so unique?  I'll share to you after the jump!

Weekend Food Trip at: Lucky Rainbow Restaurant, Ongpin

So, let's put AMW Cooks to rest for today and let's bring back the Weekend Food Trip in a restaurant!

The week was crazy!  Aside from no yaya, which is supposed to be okay, Kyle got really sick and he has full blown cough and cold!  So after making sure he's asleep, I'm finally back to share what we had last week!  It was my dad-in-law's birthday so we've decided to celebrate at Lucky Rainbow!  As you probably heard, Lucky Rainbow first branch is at Downtown Ongpin, then they ventured out to Makati and Banawe area.  The first time we dined there, I wasn't that impressed and I'm glad I gave this restaurant a second try.  This time, it is WAY better and definitely worth to go back again!  P.S. I have my list of dishes to order again!!!

If you are a fan of Tim Ho Wan's pork bun and you just don't have the time and energy to line up at SM Megamall, Lucky Rainbow's Special Egg Yolk Pao may be a good alternative.  I'm not saying this is a dupe but it is something you can taste and you'll definitely forget other pork buns for the moment..in my case, I forgot my name!  Even Kyle LOVES this!

P.S. this is only available at Banawe and Makati branch, since Keith's uncle work there, we get this as special order!

Lucky Rainbow Special Egg Yolk Pao
3pcs for Php88.00

Xiao Long Bao
4pcs for Php98.00
Another must-try!  I find this Xiao Long Bao is comparable to Crystal Jade's and I love how the "soup" was intact upon serve!

AMW Reports: This is what you call a Benefit BeauTEA Party!

Happy Friday!
I had a tough week!  Well, for the first time, our house was flooded when it rained last Monday, our househelp left because she has to take care her husband who got into an accident so it was just me, Keith and Kyle when the water was starting to rush in our first floor!  Thank God for "Jumperoo", I had to put Kyle at a Jumperoo and help Keith save all his toys and play mat!!!  

And mid-week, Kyle got sick, his temperature shot to 39+ and he was shivering during sleep!  We rushed him to his Pedia and found nothing so he is on medication and we're making sure he's taking a lot of rest!

Yeah, I'm glad it's Friday, though being a mommy, we technically do not have weekends but it is nice to know we survived the whole week with a happy disposition still.

And speaking about weekends, I kinda missed my Benefit Workshops so it was an opportunity for me to take a "Grou-fie" with these gorgeous Benebabes during an intimate Blogger meet up at TWG, BGC Central Square.

What's the buzz on Benefit's BeaTEA party?


New products to look forward to!  Let me tell you, some of them could be small but the effect is HUMONGOUS!
