AMW Bulletin: Shakey's Justice League Unlimited

There are so many pizza places in the Metro but when it comes to Shakey's, I always say: "They have the best thin-crust pizzas!"

Do you agree?

Well, I recently enjoyed a Thin-crust Angus Steakhouse Pizza and you should order this at least once (or twice or multiple times) in your life!



One day, I knew I would be home late so I've decided to take home some food instead, so I went to Shakey's again and guess what? T hey have a new addition to their pasta dishes!  The Shrimp Chorizo Pasta!  Okay, I'm allergic to seafood but Mr. AMW isn't so I had to order this for him and with the help of anti-histamines, I took a few bite! :D

The ingredients of the new Shrimp Chorizo Pasta includes olive oil, garlic, tail on shrimp and Spanish Chorizo in rich and tangy marinara sauce.  I would say, this is not your usual "sweet, Filipino-style pasta", this has a hint of spice that gives a kick on every bite!

Php220.00 for Solo and the one on photo below is Platter (good for 2-3 persons) for Php450.00.

Kiehl's Micro-Blur Skin Perfector and Hydro-Plumping Re-texturizing Serum Concentrate

I have always been a fan of Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate as it is one product I've tried that instantly brightened my skin overtime!  Read my past reviews HERE and HERE

That was years ago and I guess I got sidetracked with different skincare products to try!  BUT, this year, I was sent Kiehl's Micro-Blur Skin Perfector to try and I was mum about this because as much as I would love to try this for myself, I never change my skincare routine "abruptly" because of my sensitive skin history!  So I actually brought this along with me on makeup gigs to use on clients!  Just so you know, I value skincare routine so much I inject that on each of my clients!  But of course, I always check with them if they have skin sensitivity to particular brands or ingredients.

One of the most-loved brand that I get positive response from clients is Kiehl's!  I've used the Micro-Blur Skin Perfector serum prior to makeup application and so far, I love the immediate blurring effect it gives.  It may not be as obvious as those Pore Erasing products like that from Benefit POREfessional but this gives a good "headstart" before I start makeup application.



Thanks to my clients' feedbacks, I was told this skin-smoothing formula is lightweight and do not cause them to oil up midday!  Of course, most of the time, I use this on clients only once so I can't tell if this product will help lessen pores in the long run!  I can't try this as I have very dry skin so I have non-existent pores! :)  (yabang no? hahahah)

AMW Reports: Mustela "Nurturing Skin Care" Event

If you are expecting, a new or even an expert mom, you probably heard about Mustela.

I heard about Mustela the moment I knew I was expecting because my good friends have been singing high praises about the brand!  I, of course, was busy with my 6 months worth of  morning sickness so I did not bother use any product on myself during those times! 

Then came my super adorable Baby AMW! Thankfully, I was gifted a Mustela Bebe Trial Set and I fell in love with the Mustela No Rinse Cleansing Fluid and Dermo-cleansing gel for hair and body that I ended up purchasing for full size!  And of course, the Mustela shopping continued, I hoard on wipes (they are winner!), the Foam Shampoo and the Physiobebe Cleansing Fluid!


So when I got an invite to know more about this Nurturing Skin Care line, I had to free up my schedule and see what other products I should get addicted to!


The event was held at La Creperie, hosted by the ever pretty and talented Ms. Lexi Schulze

AMW Reviews: Tory Burch Lipstick in Swizzle

A review on Tory Burch Lipstick?
Yes!  The seriously have makeup lines available in the local market!  Tory Burch may be known for fashion, but Tory is definitely serious even with makeup! 

12 shades of Tory Burch Lipsticks arrived in the Philippines and I got my hands on one of my favorite shade called Swizzle!


Housed in a gorgeous Tory Burch signature colored packaging with a nice logo printed at the tip of the lippie!



Tory Burch says ---
Tory Burch loves color — and has created 12 distinctive shades, each designed to flatter a variety of skin tones. Extending from the original signature lip color, Pas du Tout, the collection ranges from tomboy neutrals to feminine pinks and bold brights. This modern formula represents the ideal balance of sheer yet vivid color and rich texture with a weightless finish. Encased in gold and orange fretwork — it’s a super-chic accessory in itself.

Notes: The lip color is subtly scented with notes from the Tory Burch fragrance — cassis, grapefruit and mandarin.

Size: 0.11oz/ 3g
