Mom & Tina's Timog Review

I have been to Mom & Tina's on several occasions. 
First time was for work - a shoot, so I really didn't eat that much.
The next few times, I visited the Timog branch with me and my family!  Brought my dad there so many times too because he liked the food and ambiance.  

After almost a year, I finally returned, this time with my good friends Jals and Andrea because Jals came back from the US and it's a perfect "tita-bonding" place because they open up early, they have parking spaces, they serve good breakfast and lunch...and most of all, they have yummy desserts!

It was the longest time for me to stay in a restaurant, Kyle's class was suspended so I brought him with me and stayed there for good 4 hours .

Mango Kani Salad
Crispy lettuce with a good serving of kani sticks and ripe mangoes.  Really delicious.  If like me you're not a fan of mayonnaise, maybe ask them to serve the dressing on the side.

Beef Stroganoff 
Okay, I asked for this, I wanted a cream based pasta and the server recommended me this, I'm not a fan of beef strips on pasta (bacon girl here!)  but yeah, my yaya loved this so it is just a matter of taste!

Estee Lauder's July Gift Time!

I am one of those customer who really wait for a nice GWP (Gifts with Purchase) before I shop for backups!  

One perfect example is the Gift Time months of Estee Lauder.  I have so many bags and pouches from the brand and in one way or another - used them for travel, gifted them to my family and friends and made someone happy!

This July, the Gift Time is back and I am most excited about this collection because I am really amazed how beautiful the bag and pouch looks - doesn't look like a GWP-material!  I am honestly using them when I go out!

This collection is created by Amber Locke of the design brand AMBA Living.  The brand blossomed from her passion for healthy lifestyle.  she expresses her love of fruits and vegetables their colors, shapes and textures through her vibrant photographic prints.

SilkyGirl Perfect Brow Liner & Powder Review

Yes, that's me and my crazy half face brows once again!
I have a kick seeing my 1 brow naked 1 brow drawn photos!  I just like seeing how big transformation a "filled and defined" brow can give!  Do you feel the same?

I roadtested the newest brow product from the brand SilkyGirl.  I got a package from them with various new product launches and I picked this up right away because a girl can't get enough of brow products - let alone Brow Pencils!

We all love multi-functional products.  I like it that this comes with a brow liner and brow powder,  I also like it that I can use the brow powder as an eye contour or even nose contour when I only have a few products in my bag!

Paint In Color Look

I haven't done much looks lately right? 
Because I usually put up my looks on Stories and screw that, I seldom wear legit eyeshadows nowadays until I got this palette!  I was really intrigued about this newest palette from The Body Shop and I love how their packaging is totally different from the usual packaging!  I like it that I am seeing more colors as well.

This palette is called Paint In Color - true to its' name, it does remind me of Kyle's paint palette or watercolor set!  I did initial thoughts on this palette and swatched a couple of shades which made me go "oooh and aaahhh" a lot of times!  

But after testing this out on various occasions, I am ready to share my in depth thoughts and will share some tips on how to use this wisely as well!  :D  Are you Ready?
