[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.

[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
