AMW Reviews: Etude House Sweet Recipe Cupcake All Over Color

How late could I get in writing about these cute cupcakes called Etude House Sweet Recipe Cupcakes All Over Color?

I don't care!  They definitely deserve a space on my blog!  Again, I may be as late as ever but nothing as cute as these can surpass my wandering eyes!

Etude House is definitely a winner when it comes to "cuteness" in packaging and affordability!  I visited an Etude House store again recently and saw cute mini cupcakes and I dare not to ask the SA what they are for as I may end up getting more than what I need.  Do I even need them?  Do you?

These All Over Color are indeed...for All over!  You can use these on your eyelids, cheeks and lips!  As much as I enjoy using multi-tasking products, I've been using these 2 shades for only 1 purpose --- as a cream blush!

AMW Cooks: Pork Beef Burgers with Mushroom Gravy

Hi AMW friends!
When I posted about my "Burger with Mushroom Gravy" picture on Instagram, a lot of you requested for a recipe! 

First of all, THANK YOU!  I am one busy working mom so whenever I finish cooking, I just whip out my trustee phone and take a shot of it under very unflattering lighting and a screaming hungry kid at the background!  *laughs*  So thank you for appreciating my food photos even if they are very simple and super unprofessional to look at! :D

I recently shared my Eggplant burger recipe HERE and you may actually recreate the "talong burger" recipe and add the mushroom gravy sauce.  But this time, I wanted  something different!  As much as Mr. AMW is starting to appreciate my Eggplant Burger, I want to reward him at times with an "All Meat" goodness!  So as not to taste the overpowering taste of Beef, I mixed Ground Pork and Beef together to create a different textured burger!  Here's my simple recipe!  I hope you enjoy cooking as much as I did!

for Beef/Pork Burger
  • Ground Pork
  • Ground Beef
  • Egg
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Corn Starch
  • Soy sauce
 for Mushroom Gravy Sauce
  • A can of mushrooms
  • Chicken stock.  Or if you don't have chicken stock, 1/4 slice of Knorr Chicken cube.
  • Butter
  • Soy sauce
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Corn starch

Uno De 50 Connection Collection is Drool-worthy!

The first time I learned about the Spanish accessories brand Uno De 50 was during my visit at their SM Mall of Asia Branch (post HERE).  I took home my first piece of Uno De 50 accessory and wore it so many times because it reminded me so much of my love for Blogging. Blogging has brought me to so many places and I get to know so many people.  Yes, I do connect accessories, clothing, fragrance and makeup with important events in my life.

That's why I can definitely connect with Uno de 50's AW 2014 collection.


"The search for yourself, a journey without a map or a compass involves connecting with your surroundings.
You are not in the environment, you are part of it.  What at one point was contact or the senses has now become a connection."

Uno De 50 looks inside each person to show us that what defines us is not an accessory, but these accessories are part of us. 

You can definitely see handcraft goodness in each accessory.

Something New: Belo Collagen Drink

Everyone who lives in the Philippines (or even outside of the country) probably heard about Belo!  I mean who doesn't?  Belo prettified so many celebrities at times I wonder, if I'll end up going through those non-invasive/invasive treatments in the future.  (That's a whole different topic so I'm not going there!)

When Belo came up with products, I got so excited because these are the products you can easily find in the market and they are inexpensive!  One Belo product that I tried, tested and really love is the Belo SunExpert!  I used these sun protection product during our SampleRoom #SplashofSummer beach trip and mind you, I got home looking like I never left home!  *lol*

Then, I heard Belo came up with more products ready to touch every single beauty-enthusiast.  This time,the Belo Nutra products.

Dr. Vicki Belo has created the Belo Nutraceuticals: Glutathione + Collagen, a first in a line of dietary supplements that aims to beautify from within.  These pills provide whitening plus anti-ageing in one capsule. 

Of course I didn't drink any of these when these were launched because I was breastfeeding Baby AMW at that time and I just want to be safe so I've given mine away to my mom-in-law and so far, she finished all 30 capsules and told me she didn't feel any side effects.  There wasn't any "obvious results" because she just finished 30 capsules and didn't go for more.

Happy Skin Forbidden Fruit Set

Hi AMW Friends!
When I posted on Instagram Happy Skin's newest Forbidden Fruit set that includes 3 Holiday Lippies, I got loads of queries on how the shades particularly look and the difference between the old and the new!  

I want to congratulate Happy Skin again for such a ground-breaking product as almost everyone I know who loves makeup own at least ONE Shut Up & Kiss Me Lippie!

Don't get me wrong, I get these for free to review but I have repurchased some of the shades as gifts and some were set aside for my makeup clients!  (Hint: I repurchased Valentine Kiss 2x and I own another Honeymoon Glow for backup!) 

Back to the Holiday Set!  Forbidden Fruit, I can imagine, will fly off the shelves!  All 3 shades are wearable not only for the Holidays but all-year-round!  And here's the great news!  These 3 shades are NOT Limited Edition so don't worry, you can purchase and repurchase them anytime of the year! 

BUT, if you want this tin can (I will definitely use this to store my falsies!)  You have to buy them this Holiday season!  

Included are Shut Up & Kiss Me Lippies in ---
Mistletoe Kiss
Under the Sheets
Naughty and Nice

Description printed at the back of the tin can.
