Majolica Majorca now available in the Philippines! :)

Majolica Majorca is the drugstore line of Shiseido. Just about a year ago, I was wishing for this brand to be available locally, this is so far the best drugstore brand that ive tried. Ive tried their mascaras and blushes and i love them! I got my stuff thru a fellow GirlTalker (thanks Smile!) last year and im glad Majolica Majorca is now available here in our country,  their first counter can be found in the Beauty Section of SM Makati. 

Starting March2011, the brand will open their kiosks in all leading SM Department Stores and Watsons outlets around Manila and Cebu. 

Will post a review of their blushes prolly tomorrow, but for now, im gonna share a partial list of their best selling products with their corresponding prices. 








































Wish granted. :)

Do you have Majolica Majorca items in your stash? What are your favorites?




Live, Love and Stay Fab! :)

I fell in love again.

You are a true shopaholic if you wake up with eyes gleaming at the sight of a package lying in your bedside.

Dont you just love receiving packages? 

Going to bed full of excitement and waking up the next day looking for the little pouchie filled with your precious goodies. 

It makes your day just by simply opening the package and staring at your new baby. 


How about surprise packages? Something you really have no idea of. 


Something like this.... 



Who doesnt love surprises?

 It makes us feel extra special, especially when you receive something that you really like, it makes us feel that the person who gave it to us made an extra effort of "researching" about the stuff we like. 

First thing I did when i got this was called Mom and Dad to ask if they got this for me (the details of the shipper was noted Anonymous), apparently, they dont have any idea about the Chanel Blush i received. 

Now I think I know who the Mystery Sender is -- Hunny! 
He knows nothing about makeups, and I find it cute that he knew i have the heart for cool pink blushes! 

I super love this blush (though i havent swatched it yet), its THAT nice that I dont seem to have the heart to use it! 

Im one happy girl, and this definitely made my day.. <3 <3 <3







Live, Love and Stay Fab!

Otterbox Strength Case for Blackberry 9800


First blog entry that isnt related to make-up/cosmetics.. :) 

I just got my Blackberry Torch first week of March, and since then, i was in search for the best protective case for it, but then i initially bought a frosty pink perforated mesh case that doesnt actually protect the phone since it comes off easily, well im not complaining, i got the case for just Php 100.00 (around USD2.00) haha!

here's how the cute cheapie case looks like :


I googled about protective cases for BB Torch and found Otterbox Cases as one of the highly raved brands. 
Searched our local ebay (http://www.ebay.ph) and to my surprise, one seller has the Strength Case (read further to know why its called strength) for my new baby! I got the Strength case for Php 1999.00 (USD 45.00), seller offered free shipping for this. It costs a bit more than the actual retail value of USD 34.95 (Php 1462.00) which I think is pretty fair since I assume it covers the taxes and freight to the Phils already. 

Here's a photo of the packaging :


Description (taken from the Otterbox Website)

About our Commuter Series:

  • Includes a self-adhering protective film
  • Limited edition pink plastic on white silicone

  • Self-adhering clear screen protector

Theres nothing to hate about this case, even the pretty steep price tag since i think this case serves its purpose well. 

This case has 2 layers, an inner Silicone Layer (White part) that absorbs the impact when you accidentally drop the phone,  and the outer layer thats made of Tough Polycarbonate. 

I love how the front cover "hugs" the front part of the phone, I dropped this phone accidentally once, and the front part didnt come off (unlike what i read on one of the reviews i found). 

The ports (3.5mm port for the earphones and miniUSB for charging file transfer) as well as the buttons on the sides and top of the phone are covered too, which protects dirt from getting inside the case. 

It also comes with a free Screen protector that would shield the screen from scratches. 

I also find that it made my grip better, was having a hard time texting before since my hands easily get tired holding on to this phone coz its so thin, i dunno if its just me but this case surely improved my grip on the phone.

(HERE IS WHY THE PINK OTTERBOX CASES ARE CALLED STRENGTH CASES) 
The best part about this purchase is that 10% of the item cost would go to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade, the funding will support finding a cure for breast cancer and advancing the access to care for all, regardless of the ability to pay for the treatment. 


So, are you a Blackberry User who loves Pink? Now is your chance to lend a hand and help save a life in your own little way. :)
