[Review] Eternity Acqua by Calvin Klein

This is the first time that I would be reviewing a fragrance. Here is Eternity Acqua by Calvin Klein. I got this from the October BDJ Box and it came in a sample size of 1.2 mL. As this only came in a sample size, I can't give you my point of view with regards to its packaging. All I can share with you is its scent.  As I write this, I realize how hard it is to review this sample. How do I describe the smell and interpret it in words?

Here is the official statement from the October BDJ Box:

Crafted for the stylish and sophisticated woman, this modern scent is inspired by the ocean breeze.

The 1.2 mL sample bottle. 
True to its claim, the scent really reminds me of the fresh cool sea breeze: little saltiness, leafy smell, and gentleness of water. The soft floral notes only becomes apparent when you smell it longer. The smell is gentle and not strong. It gives you a bit of sophistication. This fragrance is feminine and is ideal for the busy woman in the corporate world. 

I didn't get any spontaneous compliments when I wore this scent. However, when I asked head on about it, my colleagues told me that it smells great. It doesn't last for long so you need to reapply it. This is a Eau de Toilette after all. Being alcohol-based, the scent lasts for two to three hours on me. 

Even if this product is good, I won't buy a full bottle of  it. I am a fan of full and sweet floral scents and Eternity Acqua just falls short. Though I won't mind wearing this in formal parties and meetings. But if soft and sophisticated fragrances are your type, then give this one a try.

A Full Moon: My Second Fanfiction is Here!

Heya Dearies!  Following my first fanfiction The Path of The Unspecialized (The King's Avatar Fanfic) , which was posted in Webnovel, m y next story is now ready to be published! I'm very excited to share this with you. One of the video games that I have played for a very long time is The Sims. Started around 19 years ago, thereabouts. Until now, I don't get tired of creating Sims and building houses. Though yes, there have been times where I was disappointed at how buggy the game is... but yeah, it hasn't stopped me from playing the game. Hahaha~ The Sims is a life simulation and oftentimes, I create stories for my sims. What would they look like? How would they start out? Where would they live? With The Sims 4: Vampires game pack came Caleb Vatore, who became my favorite pre-made sim. I would pair him up with a sim of my own.  And in the process of playing, I eventually got inspired to write down how their story would go in my version of The Sims 4 world. So p r

[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!

Presenting The Starbucks 2014 Planner

There are a lot of 2014 planners available out there. For this post, let me share with you the 2014 Starbucks Planner. Every December, people are talking about it! The cover and the layouts are something to look forward to, as well. For this year, it came in four colors: yellow, magenta, brown, and black. The black one is the Philippine edition ( hmmm, tempting! ). I'm very much impressed because the cover feels like leather.  I will feature the magenta one. My friend owns this. I already have a planner for 2014, owning another doesn't make sense at all. Hehehe ~ So, I decided to take some photos of it and share what's inside. (^_^) Left: the box, Right: the planner.  The cover is embossed with coffee icons and Starbucks coffee blend logos. I noticed the symbol for their coffee Sumatra and the elephant icon for Kenya. The 2014 Starbucks Planner in magenta I saw the symbol of the Starbucks coffee blend Sumatra embossed on it. Here is a really cute featur
