Saizen is a gold mine of cute, cheap and truly fun stuff! The store never fails to amaze me with their wide variety of goods :> Tralalalala~ I passed by the store and I wanted to have a brown eyeshadow palette~ so tadaa I got one!
Ellefar Pearl in Eyeshadow Natural Brown
If you take a dark color eye shadow with the chip and put it the edge of your eye as the eye line, it makes you cool and smart feeling. And then if you put the bright color one all on your eyelid, it makes you vivid and shiny feeling.
Attention of the use: If something happen the trouble on your skin using them, please stop use them.
^Well I think they should really hire someone to write for them~ Someone who could make clearer sentences in English :))
The black base of the packaging makes it look sleek and not cheap, so great move! The plastic is not that thick so I think a fall may break it~ I have not tried dropping this though cause I’m afraid that it would shatter :«
The shadows look pretty decent on the packaging which is the first reason why I bought it~
Pearl in Eye Shadow~ Meaning it would shimmer baby!
They are rounded when newly opened :) so cute!
After a number of uses :> kekeke~ now it’s beginning to become flat XD I don’t have a problem with these really! Not
Arm swatches of the shadows :D I think it’s the perfect colors to achieve a natural and a smoky look! The colors swatch the same as how it looks like on the shadow!!!!!! :D :> AWESOME color payoff!
The included sponge tip is not to shabby too! Don’t need to bring brushes along when in travel!~
Japanese!~ Good thing the illustration can be understood!
^Ingredients list :D It has paraben~~~
Christmas break!!!! <333 And cause I want to change my look for Christmas I decided to say good bye to my ombre hair~~ :D I’ve had it for one sem and I was getting bored one day XD
I was really super happy when I tried their samples from SALADBOX so I kinda trust the brand now >,< And when I found out that they have hair color too, I was so happy :) Checked the malls where the Black Beauty Hair Color was available~ and not very many had them ~.~ I only saw the products at Robinsons Supermarkets and Mercury Drug~~~
I want to try something on the reddish side so I chose Auburn :D As you can see they only have 5 colors~ and the colors are nothing loud~

The instructions says that you should mix the two in a bowl, and because I was used to having a cream hair dye in a plastic squeeze type tube~ I directly mixed the two in the color developer which is a BIG NO NO!! k~??? Mix it in a bowl cause you’ll have a hard time taking it out after it’s almost empty @.@
Shake shake shake!!!~ Once you see that it turns from yellow to brown it means that it’s ready to use!
Kekeke XD Sounds like MMK??~ Well I’m just SUPER DUPERLY happy that finally!!!!!~ after like months of wanting a satchel… I finally have one!!!! <333 Dream come true!!! (*pssttt… me not seeing Lee Min Ho is also a contributor for getting this satchel XD)

Dara is SOOOO GORGEOUS!!! True krung krung goddess!!! She’s like the best cosmetic makeup model/endorser ever!!!
Anyhoo~ back to the satchel story ^^ I was saving up to buy a genuine leather satchel which costs about 3000+ pesos @.@ (RED TAG, meaning it has minor scratches) But when I checked the site it was already sold! Aigoo~~
It’s kinda hard to find a nice satchel here in the Philippines, I know there are online sellers and makers but I personally like to feel and inspect the actual product (with my magnifying vision that can see flaws XD), the only shops I know that sells satchels here are SM Department Store (Parisian, small satchels which are pretty cheap but the material was not that good and the buckles kinda were sharp @.@), Penshoppe (for now they have cute two tone satchels :» small and not for school~), Apple & Eve (too small for my taste too~ a satchel there costs 1000+ pesos), Folded&Hung (all their 15 inches satchels were already sold @.@ so none left for me :«<), Steve Madden (the price for a small satchel was around 4000 pesos~ for me I can’t afford it and it would not fit the requirements of a school bag, a party bag perhaps XD) and last is Cole Vintage! <3 My savior!!!
Aren’t these just KAWAII?? <3~!!!! Got them from a UP tiangge in between the isawan and the UP Pool!! :D :) omo and these were just 10 pesos each!!!! <333 aigoo so cute XD
Usa Mimi! <33 Was so surprised to find these~ <333 But even though there were some defects I can’t complain! Waha just so cute!!~ silky texture and the design is <3333 AHHH I think since I bought this I was wearing it to school everyday XD As a headband to keep bangs away and as a scarf~ No more cold necks :))
BOWS!~ <333 Pretty pretty! Just have to personally be the quality control, and me being oc with the stuff I buy :)) Found the perfect symmetric pair <333 Ahhh will be buying more for my cousin because she loved it!! ;D
Tony Moly and Etude House new products <333 :D I’ve already discussed (haha sounds like a Professor XD) what’s inside the Tony Moly paperbag, so today I’ll be sharing my recent buys from Etude House ;D
Sweet & Spiky! Got these cute spiky bangles at Genevie Gosum for just 30 pesos each :> happy all saints’ day!! Now in the province to visit the cemetery~
Annyong haseyo!!!~ :D Sometimes a girl just wants a change in hairstyle! May it be a hair cut or a new hair color! Something different is good :) But since I was growing out my hair (for graduation XD :))))) preparing early XD) I chose to have a new style! And it’s the famous ombre hair!
Some K-idols sporting the hair style :) So what does ombre mean?~
French word that means having colors or tones that shade into each other —used especially of fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark. - Merriam Webster
I thought that the style is achieved by having a light hair color then have your black hair (original hair color) grow out and tadaa!! Ombre hair :))) But having ombre hair done intentionally looks really different! :D The change is quite dramatic too! Combine black with blonde hair color #,# Was afraid at first but hey you only live once :))
This Berry Trendy Hair Bleach could lighten~ bleach hair color and has different intensities depending on how long you leave it on! Mission! BLONDE!!!
Good thing that they indicated the Ingredients in English :D :)
Other than the ingredients listing that is in English, everything else was in Korean @,@
Tear this side to reveal the directions…
That are in Hangul! Not helpful @,@ There are no photos either ~,~ Hope that Tony Moly includes English instructions on their next batches :) or at least place photos!
Upon opening the box there would be 2 big sachets: Hair Bleach Lotion and the Hair Bleach Powder.
The mixing ratio is 3:1~ Mix 10g of Powder with 30ml Lotion!
Great Shopping finds at Robinsons Ermita Manila :> Got all these at SALE prices :»> omo I really love the book~ Inspirations for my next interior design plates :) And the shirt and skirt were originally at P 2000.00+ each!!! Sales are~ <333
Erika’s Weather Forecast: Next hunt~ heels :)
Konichiwa!!!<3 UNIQLO is now in the Philippines!!! Yesterday my family and I went to MOA! just so we could check out the newly opened UNIQLO store there~
AHH sunny big Ferris Wheel! <3 It looks so small XD Oh, and I should never underestimate a 2 megapixel camera phone! <3 Check out these snapshots I took while going around the store! :>
It was quite easy to locate! Just ask any staff in MOA and they know where it is! It’s a buzz here! Oh and we had to wait in line (I thought we would have to wait for an hour before we could enter the store, which will make my dad angry and leave XD, but luckily the line was moving :D)
It doesn’t matter who you are or where you live, Uniqlo makes clothes that transcend all categories and social groups. Our clothes are made for all, going beyond age, gender, occupation, ethnicity and all the other ways that define people.
Our clothes are simple and essential yet universal, so people can freely combine them with their own unique styles, in any way they choose, every day of the year.
Everything we do is rooted deeply in our Japanese origin, always aspiring to excellence in quality, design and technology. However, we will always ensure that our clothes are affordable and accessible to everyone.

Chris Tiu, Iza Calzado, Nikki Gil and Chito Miranda are the faces of UNIQLO Philippines! Omo they are very different from each other! Which is why they are chosen! UNIQLO is Made for all!
The store interior is very clean, minimalist… very Japanese! But it’s different from the store we visited at Osaka Japan which boasts a darker, slick interior. :) But I love both the interiors! The place was well illuminated too! But it felt hot, like the aircon was not turned on (or maybe there was just a lot of people inside @,@) The space is very big!!! So even though there were lots of people inside it didn’t feel too crowded, we could still move :)
UT Designs from Hello Kitty to Spiderman! :D <3 There were lots of clothes and designs to choose from! I like the comfy laid back styles :>
The marked down Japanese engineered skinny fit pants! From 990 to 590~ OMO that is such a steal! Buttt~~ when we came there the remaining sizes where 22-25 only @,@ huwhat!~ I fit 27 or 28 #,~
*Special opening price until July 5~
But because I wanted pants, I tried 22 or 25 :))) (haha as if I would fit a 22 XD) Surprisingly 25 fitted perfectly! :D So I guess the sizes were a bit bigger than normal pants here!~ I wanted the blue pants but the remaining sizes were all TWENTY TWO!
Their skirts and shorts were not on sale~ But look how stylishly comfy it looks on the mannequin! :>
Perfect for those who want style and comfort :D These shorts that look like skirts are soo cute! <333
