October Favourites: Home Sweet Haul


Oh hiiiiii! So I've been back in the Philippines for a while now. During my sweet time here, my sister decided to move to our guest room which meant a lot of packing, re-packing, throwing out stuff and revisiting nostalgic pieces here and there. I also got the chance to sort out some things, catch up with some friends and meet new people. Old and new things, people, experiences...home sweet home indeed.

1. BEAUTY
Black and Gold: a really pretty hair pin from one of my friends, Gucci perfume, Chanel lippie, MAC powder, Marc Jacobs watch and Guerlain Eyeliner

Whilst cleaning my room, I was able to toy with my perfume collection. Yes, I love perfumes.
 Also had to give away and throw some lippies and settled for this happy lot. 
 My new skin care regimen: L'Oreal eye and lip make-up remover, The Faceshop's Rice Water make-up remover, my usual Neutrogena toner, Garnier night cream and Clarins day cream, Garnier eye cream, hand lotion from New Zealand, L'Occitane body lotion and Lucas' Papaw Ointment for my lips and other dry areas.

2. FOOD
 Our family's new obsession from Rustans, Coconut milk ice cream is no Maggie Beer but it's oh so yummeh!
 This almond & mint chocolate bar has a really nice packaging.

3. NOSTALGIA

 I used to read A LOT from these guys, Shakespeare, Fables, Isabel Allende, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Anne Rice, fanfiction, manga/scanlations, EVERYTHING. Now, I'm having a hard time reading, even manga (que horror!). I. MUST. START. AGAIN.
 My super cool cassette tapes. I was so hardcore.
 And who could forget my super awesome portable CD player? IN PINK. (you just can't see because of the lighting)
My travels around Europe with my grandmother and my adventures with Mark in Asia.
 Harry Potter merchandise when they first came out!!!

3. WITH LOVE
 R lent this to me. I already finished it but still didn't want to return it, for some reason. Thank you, though! 
 Krissy asked me to write here and this is just hilarious. Go check this out in Fully Booked.

Our library feels more 'cultured' because of my sister's drawing table. Galing! 
Now a proud policyholder.
Bucket List: Buying my very own insurance/investment today. Instead of using extra cash on trips, plane tickets, it will now go to a wealth builder. Ayos buhay. ‪#‎growthfund‬ ‪#‎stocks‬ ‪#‎insurance‬ ‪#‎onetimepayment‬

So there you have it. Just came home from my trip to Bicol.
In all honesty, I wanted to stop blogging. I tried, but it seems that whenever I try to stop, something or someone literally tells me to continue. So thank you. Thank you to all of you who continue to read my shhtuuff here on the internetz.
