Shopping, Life, and Etude House

"Shopping is my cardio!", so goes the famous quote. I am in absolute agreement with it! Other than being a good exercise, it helps me maintain my sanity, too. Last month has been really quite stressful for me in all aspects, all because time is not enough. I realize that as you grow older, time becomes a privilege. Hmmm... lemme make another philosophical post regarding time some other time. Hehehe~

For now, let's talk about how I fought stress by... shopping in Etude House! (^_^) But you have always keep in mind to be disciplined and to spend below your means. It is okay to buy stuff to make you feel better, but spending more than what you can brings in more financial problems... and with it comes more stress. And that's what we're trying to avoid, right?

So back to the topic. I went to the nearest Etude House branch in my place to buy some cleansing tissues. I use this everyday to remove the dust and pollution on my face when I get to the office. I bought two big packs enough for 3 months of use. 


Happy Tea Time Cleansing Tissue (PhP 198.00)
Actually, my purpose of going to EH was just to buy some cleansing tissues. But when you get there, you will be mesmerized by all the cute cosmetics... the pinks, the beautiful posters of Korean endorsers, and the very accommodating EH sales reps that call you "Princess". It was not my first time in EH, so I already knew what to expect. I did my best to stay disciplined and focused on spending on a budget of PhP500.00. 

The next thing I got was a box of cotton puff. The label says 'puff' but it is actually a cotton pad . I just got curious about the difference between a cotton pad and your ordinary absorbent cotton. Hehehe

In order to make it to the PhP500 mark, I bought a face mask. It is always a face mask! They are my beauty obsession. For this, I chose to get the I Need You mask sheet in Lemon. It has a big letter L on it. The I Need You mask series has all the letters of the alphabet. Uh oh! Sounds like a plan, right? Hahaha

For this haul, I got the EH Pink Hair Tie as the GWP. It is so cute that I don't want to open it! The packaging is super cool, as well!

EH always has the cutest GWP's. Up to now, I didn't open my hair tie. I get happy just by looking at it. (^_^)

So there is my Etude House shopping haul for the day. I got the thing that I use regularly (cleansing tissues), something out of curiosity (cotton pad), and another because of obsession (face mask). Hehehe~




A girl, even when stressed, should still look beautiful! Just as the quote goes...


So move on and continue even if terrible things happen. Remember to still regard problems as if it's nothing. Thankfully, we have cosmetics to help us look good even if we are under tremendous stress. Hehehe

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!

[Food Review] Everyday Tous Les Jours

My addiction with Tous les Jours started when my cousin brought home a whole load of breads from the said bakery. She recommended that their products are of high quality, while handing me their bestseller aptly called as "Sweet Black Rice Bread with Cream Cheese". Upon taking my first bite, I couldn't stop eating it up until the last piece. With that inspiration, I decided to go visit one of their stores for a closer look.  I went to their branch in SM North. The store is located in The Block near SM Hypermarket. Saturated with yellow lights and wooden furniture, Tous Les Jours had the french bakery/coffee shop aura.

Following my cousin's recommendation, I bought the one with cream cheese filling. However, I had a dilemma which one to choose as it has two variants. The one with black sesame? or plain
