Creightons Revive Raspberry and Pomegranate Bath and Shower Review

As you all know, I have a great love about toiletries as I love having my "me time" in the bathroom. Today, I want to share with you guys my new bubblebath/shower gel from Creightons. I bought this for only Php275 at the Beautybar Podium. 
The product claims that this can awaken your senses and revive your soul. I especially like the color of this one and that actually what attracts me the most. I've been eyeing this for awhile now and finally I was able to pick it up and try it for myself. 
The texture was a bit thick but still runny. The smell was amazing too and fruity.
I put a few drops on my bath and at first it turned the water a bit pink which kinda excites me but then it fades away after seconds. Nonetheless, I can still smell the fruity scent.
After a few minutes... I was so amazed how this one can create so much bubbles! The bubbles were pretty fluffy and thick and soft which I like.
And ofcourse, I got some candles to make it more relaxing.. As always. lol

Verdict: The only downside to it would be the fact that it doesn't foam up that much when used as a shower gel.. Infact it doesn't really foam up at all which is kind of a bummer as it says this can be used as a shower gel too. I feel like it would be a waste if I use this as my shower gel as I tend to pour more products for it to foam up so I just use this one now for my bath. But all in all, I would definitely recommend this product. It's very affordable, foams up your bath really well, can awaken your senses, etc.. and I am actually planning to buy the Vanilla Macadamia one as it smells heavenly!! :)

Ever Bilena: Famous Lipstick in Peppery Pink review

Hello ladies, today I will be reviewing this new found lipstick that I've been wearing this past whole week. 

Since I started working, I always find myself looking for make-up products like foundations, lipsticks, eyeshadows, etc. at the department stores. It's not that I don't usually wear make-ups.. I love make-ups but I mainly focus on skincare most of the time.. so this is like the first after what feels like forever. 

So anyways, I've always loved Ever Bilena lipsticks.. I used to have their best seller matte lipstick in "off beat pink" which I really really love also. The thing I love most about their lipstick is that it's very affordable. And they don't smell  funky to me at all unlike some cheapo lipsticks out there that smells like plastics or whatnot.

I am currently on a hunt of a good peachy-pinky kind of lipstick as I am starting to get really bored with my plain ole' lip tint from Tony Moly.. I figured it's time to grow up a bit and try lipsticks for real though. lol
Looks like I found the perfect one without breaking my wallet! :)
EB Famous "peppery pink" Php165

I love the packaging too.. I think its just pretty okay and girly for a lipstick. Nothing too fancy.. Just very chic and okayyy looking.

The shade is almost nude with a wee bit of a pink tone to it. This would be the perfect color if you wanna go for a natural looking make-up.. 
And for the price of Php165 you'll get a good amount of lipstick.. 
I will defintely try and seek for more local lipsticks out there and share them with you guys! 

What's your favorite drugstore/local lipstick? I'd like to know.. Thanks :)

Cinnamon apple muffin with chia seeds recipe! :)

Hi, this is actually a late post. I baked this one probably 2-3 weeks ago but I have't gotten enough time to blog about it. But anyways.. This recipe is actually very easy to do. 
Here are the things you need:
*Apple Cinnamon muffin mix
*Chia seeds
*1 egg
*Muffin cups

You can easily find this ready mix muffin at any grocery stores.. However, the mix actually didn't ask for chia seeds but I thought since I've been obsessing over chia seeds lately I decided to include it. Hence, it's gunna be more delicious and healthy. You can buy yours at any Healthy Options stores or you can buy it online like I did.

First thing you gunna need ofcourse is to transfer the dry mix into the bowl. 
Add 1/2 cup of milk and 1 egg then mix (according to the box directions)
Mix the batter but make sure to not over mixed it.
Transfer it to the muffin tray and sprinkle with chia seeds. About 1/4 tsp each.
Set them aside and pre-heat the oven.
Bake for 15-20 mins according to the box.
The box says it could make 6 muffins but I somehow managed to make 9 muffins. So thats good! :)
Be sure to check it with a toothpick if they're done already! You know the drill.
 Let it cool for 5-10mins before serving.
ENJOY... :)

Lucca Bakery

Last two weeks ago or so I went to the new fashion hall building in Megamall with my friend Pauline. We managed to try one of their newly opened restaurants/places to eat. It's called Lucca Bakery. 
They have a lot of food to choose from (pizza, sandwiches, pasta, salads.etc) but as always we opt for some Tea time.
I ordered for the Passion Fruit Tisane. Php120/pot. They allowed us to smell the Tea first and we both fell inlove with it. This Tea is very fruity and sweet. I love the smell of this tea and it definitely need no sugar at all.
Kinda reminds me of the Four Red Fruits Tea from Twinnings which I also love..
Although I have to warn you.. if you don't like fruity Teas with a subtle sour after note to it. You maybe won't like this Tea. We happened to love this though and I really think this will make a really good iced tea as well.
And since Pauline and I are both obsessed with cakes and anything fattening lol We ordered Carrot Cake, Tiramisu, and chocolate cake.
This 5-layer cake tastes soooo damn good! For only Php95 the taste was so phenomenal. It was fudgy but not so much.. but definitely very chocolatey. 
I definitely want to visit Lucca again with friends to try their good looking pizza and pastas!! This is definitely a must try and a budget friendly one. :)
