Last Friday we went to Divi in search for raw materials~ kekeke raw materials = cloth and bling. Ahhh <3 It’s been four years since I’ve been to Divisoria! Being there again brought me happiness! 11/88, 168, 999 all these malls weeee! So many shops to explore!
One thing that I also look forward to when going to 168 is the food :))) Chinese food <3
Paotsin, my go to meal whenever I’m craving for a quick serving of some Hainanese rice + Fried dumpling combo!
Oyster Cake!~ nom nom nom~ I hesitated eating it at first because of how it looks :)) But it is actually delicious!
My sister insisted that we go to Beauty Kingdom~ <3 A kingdom of beauty??? SURE!!!
Hello hello! If you have time today or if you would be dropping by UP Town Center please do visit our exhibit entitled Retail Play <3 It’s a collaboration between Clothing Technology and Interior Design students (^-^)
I was so happy that our group jives well with the CT students! And that their origami skorts and name are so inspiring! A nice kick-off to get creative juices flowing :)
Meraki to do something with soul, creativity, or love; to put something of yourself into your work.
Annyeong haseyo!!! I just wanted to share my style raid experience a few weeks ago <3 When I was little I’ve always dreamed of getting a chance to haul as much toys as possible in a grocery cart within a span of 60 seconds! Who would have known that I’d get to experience my dream in my 20s <3
Thank you to Nivea! While I was lurking around my favorite blogs I came across Carizza's post and I just randomly entered their Nivea Style Raid app found in their fan page without the thought of actually being able to get chosen :)) I use their Nivea Extra Whitening Cell Repair and Protect Body Milk even before knowing about the contest and thought that maybe it was meant to be <3
Annyeong haseyo! Today is December 26~ A day after Christmas <3 hihihi I hope that you all had a wonderful one! <3 OMO I surely did because I got to spend it with my family! <3
PLUS, after weeks and weeks of having a messy room… I can now finally see my bedroom floor again… a Christmas miracle! kekeke
Oh say hello to my pink bed~ <3
My vanity is much simpler now. I display the items that I use everyday and keep the more “fabulous, special event makeup” ones in my tool box :»
Got this from Japan Home! <3 Hangs on the wall!!!! KAWAII (^-^)/
I’ve already shared this via Instagram but I wanted to share it here too! kekeke~ MY LAMP <3 I get a nice bright light from it! The perfect task light <3
The sun is shining and the typhoon has passed. I sure am confident that we Filipinos could get through this! Smiling and pushing through even if all odds are not in favor. A trait, I am surely proud of!
Speaking of being PROUD, a few days ago, I had my L’Oreal Professionnel hair coloring experience at Bang’s Tony & Jackey SM North Annex. Super glad that after a dose of rescheduling, it finally got pushed through! I even had to cancel the giveaway because of the sudden change in location. I was originally scheduled to get the hair coloring session at Robinson’s Metro East butt -.- there seemed to be a problem with Bench Fix Salons so I got relocated. OMO I didn’t want my +1 winner to experience any hassle and sudden location changes :<
Bang’s Tony & Jackey is located at SM North Annex, and their location was at the farthest farthest end of Annex! I wouldn’t have canceled the giveaway if the location was still the same but SM North is just so far from Robinson’s Metro East!!! A travel from Rob to North would take 1 jeepney ride, 2 trains and A WHOLE LOT OF WALKING. Was haggardly sweaty when I reached the salon~ joesonghabnida to my stylists as I came with wet hair *-*!!
The waiting area was chic thanks to the chandelier and to the mosaic tile design, but the certain shade of green paint on the walls made it a little off :))
Oh a quick story, are you wondering why it’s called Bang’s Tony & Jackey? Well, one of the assistant hair stylist told my sister that it’s because the new owner (Bang) is a dear friend to Tony & Jackey, so the name stayed with an added bonus~
Hihihi I think it was a smart move because Tony & Jackey is already a pretty famous name when it comes to Korean Hair Dressing here in the Philippines.
The green walls doesn’t look that bad on photos but it was not too pretty in reality :)) Green was supposed to be a relaxing color but it made me cringe.
Anyhoo~ This is Mr. Ace, one of the senior Korean hair stylists at SM North Annex. He didn’t want to have a photo taken and was too shy! Good thing Ms. Reyzel, the assistant stylist, was there to encourage him :))
Majirel is a hair color brand under L’Oreal Professionnel which is participating in the Wear Your Color Proud Campaign.
Hair consultation check! I originally have light reddish brown hair due to my previous hair coloring session. I wanted to pursue pure brown hair next but Mr. Ace warned me that since I have the color red on my hair, getting brown hair would be tricky! Because the color red is a strong strong color, it would defeat the color brown and with just a few washes my hair would turn reddish again. So instead I just opted for a darker shade of reddish brown hair (5.60DM5) a change from my always light colored hair ^_^
Annyeong haseyo! Wazzup! Today’s review will be about something mythical… something that can make your hair gorgeously sleek!
I got this last January when I went to the L’Oreal Professionnel Steam Pod x Bench Fix Salon event <3 They used this after they did the awesome steam pod treatment on my hair ^_^
L’Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil
Nourishing Oil For All Hair Types, with a blend of avocado oil and grape seed oil. It leaves hair instantly more supple, tamed and glossy. Immediately absorbed for a lightweight feel and finish. Depending on hair type, dispense 1-2 pumps into your hand and apply to dry or damp hair.
Ingredients^ Glad to see that there is no paraben here! :D
*nyhohohoho I have always wanted to own a DAR chair </3
A few weeks ago, I got contacted by Cleocat Fashion to do a review! Well it’s a first cause I don’t normally post outfit shots here! But seeing that their shop is focused on doing Korean Fashion whole-selling~ Then I readily agreed! :D
I received the package a few weeks ago and even though Cleocat Fashion is a Singapore based store… I must say, BRAVO *clap clap clap* for a hassle-free transaction! They made sure that the package was tracked properly and that I receive it on time!~
Onto the review ^-^
Annyeong haseyo!!! Today my blog turns three years old! <3 OMO Three years already!~ But it doesn’t feel like it! :D I am just so thankful that I still have people who read my blog and send cheery little comments that sweetens up my day ^-^
I still remember my very first blog post! :)) And it was about Etude House’s Grand Opening at SM North! My tumblr name back then was hellothereprincess.tumblr.com YUP taken from the greetings we Etude House fans get upon entering the store! kekeke~ I changed my blog name because:
- it was very long and typing it on as watermark was tiring :))
- I wanted a more personal blog title~ thus ERIKA JJANG <3 hahahahaha self love daebak!!~
Annyeong haseyo! One delightful afternoon, after arriving home from school I saw this grey package on the coffee table… And immediately assumed that it was the package I was waiting for from Singapore! Horay for assuming! (^-^)/~ Korean fashion shop!
Cleocat-fashion started its humble beginnings selling fashion wares on EBay Singapore in 2006. Our business grew and it was apparent that in order to support our growing customer base, we needed to have our very own website.
It has been more than 7 fruitful years since we first started and we look forward to expanding our product collections to serve your fashion needs.
Murphy, the owner was so generous to let me choose items from their whole website! :) Kamsa hamnida!!!! I really had a hard time choosing my final picks because everything was just so pretty <3 The dresses and tops especially!
Their product sample shots^ These earrings are very unique cause they give an illusion of floating charms by your ear :D
Actual item shipped :) It looks the same as the one on the product sample shot but the only differences were:
- The gem in the middle was more cloudy and looked more purple than pink
- The lock but I prefer the lock that was included in the actual item than the one on the photo because locks like those sometimes irritate my ear XD
But overall this is a sure cute ear piece! <3
Things you do when you have time to spare :) hihihi And yes, I am still alive XD
Well graduating life is so hard -,- and time consuming… even though you are enrolled in the fewest units possible! There are a lot of hurdles to overcome and I always get mixed feelings especially with a particular special project! Happiness, sadness, worries, excitement all jumbled in my heart </3
Our class’ special project is called Sibol. Sibol aims to rehabilitate the RUHAMA shelter for children ̶ a home with a special mission and heart to care for children whose lives have been unjustly corrupted.
This is our advocacy project and a venue to show that we actually have the skills to create and design a living space for real people! Construction has already begun but we still need to raise A LOT to make our spaces come to life!
Donations and SPONSORSHIPS are greatly appreciated! <3 Don’t hesitate to leave a message or email too!
