My Hua Mulan Treasure

I have been eyeing those beautiful combs on display whenever I pass by the Hua Mulan kiosk in SM Megamall. They were so pretty that I made it one of my commitments to save up for it. Thankfully, the day for me to buy one finally came. 

I visited the Hua Mulan SM North Annex branch. I'm glad that it was the store that I chose because the sales assistant was very knowledgeable about their products. She knew what was perfect for my type of hair. She recommended for me to have the wide toothed goat or ox horn comb. All of the designs she gave me were so good, I wanted them all. But alas! I was only able to buy two. 

The sandalwood combs look nice too. However, the sales girl told me that wooden combs are not supposed to be used for wet hair. Of course, water might make the wood brittle. So after some time of choosing, I had to buy this...

The goat horn comb that I bought. PhP600.
Pretty, isn't it? The comb looks so antique and royal! It looks heavy but it is actually very light. Horn is made of Keratin after all. It is translucent, too! That is a plus on its beauty! Here is a closer look...

Since a lot of combs on display were so beautiful, I decided to buy one for a friend, too. This Peach Wood comb is so feminine. The engraving on it is so pretty! I just love the overall look and the details!

You gotta love the girly details! 
Goat horn, ox horn, and wooden combs also claim to have some good benefits in accordance to traditional Chinese medicine. I don't know if its for real. But the reason why I bought these Hua Mulan combs is because they look good! And that is enough! 

These combs are so feminine but I can't help remembering one of my life's theme songs:


You must be swift as the coursing river.
With all the the force of a great typhoon.
With all the strength of a raging fire.
Mysterious as the dark side of the moon.



I love my Hua Mulan combs! It reminds me of being beautiful, without forgetting to be tough as a man!

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
