Review: Clone Stamp 2013 Planner

20121220-143903.jpg

Bought this through my classmate and it was so hassle free! πŸ˜‰ I even got the discount for the first 50 buyers so I paid only 350php instead of 410php..yay discounts! πŸ˜‰ I love the cover and figured it’s gonna motivate me to make better plans..haha! The past months breezed by through exams and I’ve totally lost my old self with it. My old self takes down notes of happy things to remind me why I should be thankful for today. Old self would also note days shopping and going out with friends so I keep track of expenses and nights out! πŸ˜‰ that way I get a better look at my month and look forward to the next..I know it’s all mind set and quite shallow on how much I depend on my planner but frankly, that’s how I function πŸ™‚

Let’s get to the pretty bit huh? πŸ˜‰

This baby is quite functional. I’ve settled not to buy my annual Papemelrotti monthly planner for this one cause it has so much formats that will be effective for every one πŸ˜‰

Opens up into an awesome title page and free feather bookmark! πŸ˜‰ it’s really pretty hut for me and my bag, the feather doesn’t hold up so well so I’ll use my preferred magnetic bookmark on this..the design would go so well with my Hoops and Yoyo bookmarks πŸ˜‰

Here’s a monthly Thing; great to take notes of birthdays in my opinion πŸ™‚

20121220-145103.jpg

There’s a pretty animal inspired monthly cover and a month calendar (same format as my Papemelrotti) so that’s quite useful huh? Taking notes of deadlines πŸ˜‰

20121220-145239.jpg

Then there’s the monthly note thing, I like this bit, very OC πŸ˜‰

This is how the actual daily planner looks like. Very effective for precise scheduling don’t you think? πŸ˜‰

20121220-145449.jpg

After very month, there’s a Notes page πŸ˜‰ prolly a good space to doodle..hihi! πŸ™‚

20121220-145545.jpg

Then a contacts thing πŸ™‚ I never use my contacts thing for actual stuff..I like letting people who were remarkable to my year sign here like an autograph thing πŸ˜‰

It closes to a sweet note from the founders of Clone Stamp πŸ˜‰

Seriously mega happy with this baby πŸ™‚ so I’m not gonna let Dec. 21 ruin my plans for next year!! :)) here’s a photo I took for Clone Stamp on the day I received this thru the sweet Viera Carpio πŸ™‚

Beabi meets Snoe

12/13/2012 § Leave a comment

Finally moved my Glam Jam into an airless pump! πŸ™‚

20121208-004821.jpg

I do hate how the pot thing is unhygienic and difficult to pick up just the right amount, I don’t know why Snoe made theirs like this..maybe cause it’s cute :/ any who, because I’m just too OC about it, I transferred my Glam Jam into an airless pump from Beabi πŸ™‚ it made my 120php Glam Jam now worth 180php..now ain’t that cheap for a well trusted product in a much better container? :)) I also transferred the sticker onto the bottle to avoid confusion of what product is inside πŸ˜‰

There I just wanted to share cause I feel so friction clever for this..haha!! πŸ™‚ I kid πŸ˜‰

Starbucks 2013 Planner

12/11/2012 § 2 Comments

Do not buy coffee only to get a planner. Get a planner as reward if you actually buy so much coffee from Starbucks.

I hate how people judge how much a Starbucks planner is worth if you count how much each cup of coffee is when in reality it’s just free. And no I did not buy those cups only to get a planner. I happen to get a FREE planner as a gift from Starbucks for buying so much coffee during the season. Okay, bad vibes be gone! πŸ˜‰

I love stationery since forever πŸ™‚ notebooks, pads, pens etc! πŸ™‚ so it wont come out as a shock if I collect planners..I’ve been loving them since college and I only use them for half a year. The rest of the year flies too fast sometimes for me to write where I’ve been and stuff. My plans and scheds are usually photos or word documents then I just write in my planner what I asexually did for that day so I have something to look back πŸ˜‰ more like a journal to me πŸ™‚ anywho, since I’m getting really sleepy now, here’s what I found in mine! πŸ˜‰

Available in black, green and white. The leather like hard cover, closed by magnets, is attached to the actual notebook via garters. Although I hate how it doesn’t seem very secure, I’m glad I can use this as book cover for when I read books out..I don’t like people to see the titles of the books I read..haha! Check out the cool magnetic bookmark shaped like a cup πŸ˜‰

20121208-004332.jpg

Promo cards and this year they added random cute things on months like sweet post it’s, photo frame and post card πŸ˜‰

I like this..hoping to get another one for a friend πŸ™‚ please you guys, enjoy the coffee and then the free gift planner..you don’t have to buy this from ur friends or online..it just doesn’t make sense that way πŸ™‚

First of Tony Moly

12/09/2012 § 2 Comments

So, Tony Moly finally opened in Alabang and I just couldn’t wait to get myself to testing πŸ˜‰

I was a teeny bit disappointed with the color selection but the skin care and BB cream ranges are so vast, it’s gonna take you years to try everything! :))

As I did no prior research on the brand, I just went with what the SA sold most and another prospect for a long lasting blush πŸ™‚ both products while keeping in mind my Beauty level 0 goal in medschool make up :))

20121208-000926.jpg

I doth know if they gave me the membership card for free because of the price of my purchase or because they’ve just opened but I did not take the php1000 promo to get a huge tube of cleanser. It really sounds great cause it’s a HUGE tube for free but I didn’t find something more to try and pay until the required price..there will be next time πŸ˜‰ I also got a free fan which I dunno when or how I’ll ever use.

Dear Me Cotton BB Cream

First Impression: This baby is the cheapest one among the BB cream range, maybe that’s why it’s the best seller. I swatched it on my hand comparing to the “glowing skin” BB creams and decided that I like how it’s sheer and matte so there no shine but at the same time doesn’t look too made up. It smells of baby powder and feels smooth on my skin. Did not settle into fine lines and dries rather quickly. I like it. I’m excited to wear it to school everyday πŸ™‚ only catch is that this is available in one shade only.

Mineral Skin Fit Snow Blusher

First Impression: This baby reminded me very much of The Body Shop Creme Blush in tiny tubes which cost 3 times more than Tony Moly. I loved that blush but I had to save up for it cause it runs out so fast on me and it’s not easy to spend so much money. Also, the lady said that this is very long lasting so I had to really give it a try. It’s a smooth cream that feels powdery upon blending. I think I’m gonna need very little amounts of this when in use because these are super pigmented. I hope you can see thesheer pink part on my skin, cause it’s really a nice subtle color. This (Rose pink) was the only one available when I purchased, I didn’t know there were two other shades but I wouldve picked this one most likely.

All in all, I’m super happy with my purchase πŸ™‚ What Tony Moly products have you tried?

❀ Jessica

Ps. The blush swatch was done over the blended and set BB cream so that's how it looks like after blending, matte and sheer πŸ™‚

ELF Eyebrow kit + ELF Brightening Eyeliner in Coffee

Twin Review:Β ELF Eyebrow kit + ELF Brightening Eyeliner in Coffee

Eyebrow Kit
Brow Gel + Powder + Dual end mini brush

Ive been looking for a really helpful brow baby special nights that call for really defined brows. My brow pencil is easy and great to use but its not as defined as when I see gel and powder used on other people. ELF is a great brand to try cause its affordable and easily available.

Likes

  • affordable
  • easy to use
  • complete set perfect for travel
  • available in four colors perfect for brunettes
  • tiny mirror just the right size to check if your brows are even

Dislikes

  • tiny brush needs some getting used toΒ 
  • no blonde color for blonde girls

Been using this so much I’m starting to miss my old pencil :))

ELF Eye Brightening pencil

This baby I’m having second thoughts with. I love how the pencil came with a sharpener but the ashy grey brown color is not the best for my miss bright eyes look. I dont know why this was labeled Brightener because no matter how thick or thin i use this, I always get the brown grey smokey eye effect. It also doesnt cling to my waterline. Ill probably use this for the “I partied too hard last night” sultry look however, i dont see myself wanting to do the tired eyes look any time soon πŸ™‚

Likes

  • affordable
  • lasts some good hours albeit smudged
  • comes with sharpener
  • available in various colors

Dislikes

  • smudges bad
  • does not brighten my eyes at all
  • the coffee color looks too grey brown and ends up looking like i have tired eyes

I havent been using this on a daily basis. I just tightline with this very thinly to make my eyes look a little bit bigger.

With ELF its really a hit or miss thing and these two are perfect examples πŸ™‚
