Vanilla Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

My Vanilla Sunshine
"I've got Vanilla Sunshine on a cloudy day." That song played in my mind when I saw my Vanilla Sunshine cupcake served elegantly on my table. What coincidence since it was a cloudy day too!


I had the chance to drop by Serendra last June 28 for the BDJ Get Gorgeous event. After the workshop, I went to Cupcakes by Sonja to have taste of some of their great creations. 


As always, numerous creative cupcakes were in line at the store. All of them looked sumptuous and sported unique names. I had a hard time choosing which one to buy. I saw Red Velvet Vixen, and remembered how unforgettable that was! However, I wanted to try a new variant this time. 


With the suggestion of the crew girl named April, I bought Vanilla Sunshine. According to her, it is also one of their bestsellers. I can attest to that! I saw mugs and tumblers on display with Vanilla Sunshine print! 


Few minutes later, April served my cupcake with pink frosting, though I also saw blue and brown colored frosting in the counter. I am not sure if they tasted different from each other. But no worries! I like pink! 


Vanilla Sunshine's taste reminded me of my mom's homemade cakes! It was the classic cupcake of all sorts -simple but outstanding among the others. The flavor has the hint of vanilla in the cake mixture. The sweet sugary frosting was very soft and there are no traces of hard sugar forming in it. Its taste was close to bubblegum and peppermint. I think the mint flavor came from the white sprinkles. However, the sweetness of sugar still overpowers everything. Overall, the cake is not sweet but the frosting offsets it. 


I enjoyed every moment of the cupcake! It was yummy and too cute to be eaten! It was very nostalgic! This place really feels like home! 


Vanilla Sunshine costs PhP54 (as of writing).

[Review] Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub

Gluta-C Intense Whitening Body Scrub is a product that impressed me on my first try. Mostly, when I review beauty products, I use it at least a week to see the effects and results on my skin. I never thought that a body scrub can make me go "wow!" instantly! I got this from my Gluta-C Sample Room haul . And I used it the day after I got it. I was that excited!  This product is packaged in a tub. It is a soft, viscous, and grainy cream. The smell is nice, too! It has a cool perfume scent.  120g tub of Gluta-C Body Scrub This is how I used this: I wet my skin and then took an ample amount of the scrub and then applied it using circular motions. Afterwards, I put liquid body wash on a loofah then rubbed on my skin. I could feel the small grains from the scrub gently exfoliating my skin. I love the combination it does with the body wash. The bubbles and the foam make it comfortable! All the while, I know that my skin is thoroughly cleansed!  Here is the surprise!

My Chouhou Gundam

I am so excited to write about the latest addition to my Gundam collection!  This time, I got it from the Gundam Caravan Booth last Best of Anime 2012 ! It was a fun-filled event full of cosplayers and various booths !  This time, we were given the Chouhou Gundam to setup. Uhm, I'm not sure if there is another name for this Gundam. However, the Katakana characters read as "Chouhou", so let me stick with that.  The box of Chouhou Gundam. Hey! This one is new! Other than the manual for setting up, there is also comics inside the box. Wow! It is great as I will get to know more about this Gundam! But time was of the essence, so I decided to move on with building and detailing and set aside reading for later. Comics inside the Chouhou Gundam box. So let us start with the steps in setting up. Here are the photos: We start off with the feet Then the head was next. Putting stickers on is hard, you know. Of course, we need the torso to connect the

Proud to be a Bella

May 21 2011 had been added to my list of memorable days thanks to the girls of Belle de Jour Power Planner. That special day was the BDJ Girls' Rendevous for the month of May. The theme was I Dream, therefore I can.  It was one of the biggest event to date. Almost 100 slots were available to be filled. The invitation to the event was given through various contests. I got my slot in this event through the Belle de Jour Facebook Fan Page. They posted a question at exactly 2:54 PM of May 5, 2011. They posted a question as their status which was: Question, Bellas:   How do you unwind/relax when you're stressed from school or work?   The first 25 BDJ Girls who will comment on THIS THREAD will get a slot at the BDJ Rendezvous: I Dream Therefore I Can! : ) When I saw that post, I immediately wrote "I watch my favorite teleserye." Woah! Believe it or not, I got the lucky 25th slot. Weee! The Rendevous was held in Ace Water Spa in Ortigas. I thought that swimming wi
