PIXI Tinted Brilliance Balm in Baby Bare

Faeries, flowers, and mint? What a delightful combination! This is perhaps just one of the reasons why I fell in love with PIXI. Of course, their lip products are fantastic and I've blogged about my 2 favorite PIXI Brilliance Balms: Magic Tink Tint and Bitten Berry before. Click on the links to read my glowing reviews :)

I recently got a third one called Baby Bare, which is a more natural-looking, MLBB shade.

Packed with lip-loving ingredients, this glossy gel balm protects and hydrates the lips instantly. After the balm wears off, lips are left tinted with a flattering, personalized hue that suits you. It’s so adorable; it reminds you of a crayon. No need for sharpening though! Just secure the lid after use. Pucker up!

Holika Holika Oil Queen Cotton Pact SPF 30 PA++

I'm so happy that I am finally done with shopping -- I had to do some last minute shopping this afternoon for some friends and nephews. Now, I am particularly excited to hand everyone their gifts (it's the best part!) and watching their reactions as they tear open the Christmas wrapper. I love giving gifts! It's the Santa in me, I guess, as I grew up believing there was actually a Santa Claus!

Anyway, I have been using the Holika Holika Oil Queen Cotton Pact for months already and I'll try to write a proper review now. With the Christmas happenings (plus Epsilon coming into our lives), I've just been so busy and out of it lately.

A cute compact that battles sebum and keeps skin fresh and pure all day. Safe for sensitive skin, it does not contain mineral oil, parabens, talc, vaseline, and ethanol. With added SPF30, PA++ for sun protection.
Price: Php 425

Unboxing: Secret Santa Glamourbox

Happy Holidays, dear readers! I just got home from Bloggers United 6 and I'm terribly exhausted. The moment I got into the car, I fell asleep and woke up somewhere in Manila. Man, all these late nights are really getting to me. Furthermore, I'm still a little stressed over my upcoming Korea trip mainly because I will be shelling out a lot of money for the trip and I'm thinking about the work that I will leave behind.

Anyway, here's my unveiling of the Secret Santa Glamourbox, our last box for the year. Have you been naughty or nice? I think I am still the sense that I am still masungit and hot-tempered. :(

Contest: What's your Hurraw Lip Balm personality?

Last June, I professed my love for the Hurraw Mint Lip Balm. Finally, I've found a minty lip balm that's hydrating, organic, vegan, and not overly greasy. I love it to bits and I'm now on my second tube. I would recommend this to anyone who's on the lookout for a vegan product and doesn't like all those nasty petrolatum and chemical ingredients in most commercial lip balms.

Take your pick: Root Beer, Licorice, or Coffee?
Since Christmas is only just 20 days away (oh my gosh, can you believe it?!), I am so thrilled to announce that Cutieverse and I will be raffling off three of their most awesome flavors to my lucky readers. As you all know, Cutieverse has over 20 flavors of the Hurraw Lip Balm but we handpicked the top three variants that we think would suit my readers best. We're picking three winners by the way and each will win either the Coffee, Licorice, or Root Beer Lip Balms.

Excited yet? Here are the mechanics:

Terms & Conditions:
*Deadline of the contest is December 16.
*Contest is open to residents of the Philippines only. 
*Winners will be contacted via email and prizes will be shipped via courier. 

Pretty easy, huh? We're so excited to read your answers so crack your knuckles and start typing away! Good luck, everyone :)

Check out for more amazing organic and vegan products!

My Detox Detox Treatment at Ki by Neo Day Spa

For my second treatment at Ki by Neo Day Spa, I chose the new Detox Detox Treatment which was so new, it wasn't even listed on the service menu! I was told that it involves a seaweed wrap + body scrub + lymphatic drainage massage. It's good for releasing toxins from the body and is recommended for people on the go, those who need cleansing, and for those who always eat out. Hmmm....I think that just about describes me. Although I do resist from eating out too often and am trying to include more greens in my diet, I also get sugar cravings (not to mention Yabu cravings) when I'm stressed. So yeah, I need a detox alright!

Sharon was assigned to me again, she was the masseuse from my first visit. 

Side note: I'm loving long skirts now, because it's so comfy and so easy to wear. I got this black skirt from Helga at our previous fashion swap at The Appraisery. :)
