Starbucks PH 2014 Christmas x 2015 Planner

Heya! Sorry for my long absence, guys. Time is a rare commodity for me nowadays. But no worries, whenever I wish for time to go slow, the perfect place to go would be a coffee shop. It's just fascinating to watch the skies, birds, and people pass by. I also write, read, or just stare at blank space with the invigorating aroma of coffee wafting in the air.

Speaking of coffee shops, my favorite place to go during the Christmas season is Starbucks! I love that place for two reasons: Toffee Nut Frappuccino and the Planner. The planner I can forego, but Toffee nut Frappe, not a chance! (^_^)

However, there is a new featured beverage this 2014: the Christmas Cookie Latte. The Peppermint Mocha and Toffee Nut are also available. Those two are the crowd favorites, eh? 

So on my visit at Starbucks a few days ago, I bought the newly featured drink. And oh, the plastic cup is specially decorated with paint strokes and it looks so festive, as well. Everyone... presenting the Christmas Cookie Latte Frappuccino! 

The Christmas Cookie Latte Frappuccino (tall size: PhP170)
It looks really good! Caramel drizzle and nuts rest on the whipped cream. The drink has a hint of caramel which complements the prominent taste of espresso. It is as sweet as a liquid gingerbread cookie! 

Look at all those nuts!
Along side my drink, I got the Chocolate Crepe Cake. It's a holiday featured cake and the name itself pique my curiosity. Crepe? Cake? Hmmm...


Christmas Chocolate Crepe Cake (PhP120)
This cake has layers and layers of crepe and something that tasted like condensed milk between the layers. Yummy! Everything is topped with dark cocoa powder and sugar. It's delicious, but I think it would taste better if it's paired with a warm and not-so-sweet drink. 


Look at those intricate layers! 
Since I bought a beverage, I was finally given a sticker card with one sticker. Hehehe~ I like the concept this year: Let There Be Bright


The sticker card

My first star! (^_^)

Complete the stickers! (^_^)
Completing all the stickers will give you a Starbucks 2015 Planner! Yay!


The Starbucks 2015 Planner in all colors

The brown planner is so well-crafted. It is my favorite in the bunch. It is so artistically designed and well thought of. I don't know about you, but the other colors seem boooooring! Hehehe~ I have a feeling that the brown planner will be gone first. :P


The lovely brown Starbucks 2015 Planner
The pages inside are beautiful in its simplicity. It features articles pertaining to coffee and the people. Here is the divider page of my birthday month of November. It is about your own favorite Starbucks drink.

Planners are awesome! It gives you hope in foreseeing your plans for the upcoming year. Have you decided on what your 2015 planner would be? 

Woah~ All these thoughts for a time while in Starbucks. It's nice to relax, too. This season, I think my visits to Starbucks will be more frequent. Christmas Cookie today, Toffee Nut tomorrow! Yay! So, dig in...


Dig in, guys! (^_^)

[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

Rain and HyunA

After four months, the Rain Effect still leaves a mark in me. It is a great album and if I have all the time in the world, I would feature each track in a full write up. For this sixth volume, Rain had a song which featured the K-Pop artist HyunA. It is entitled "Where are you going, Oppa?" and it has a nice Arabian-like beat infused with bass and hip hop, it hints of sexiness too.  For today, I will write about this song that was successful in bringing out a reaction in me. Let’s listen… Fan video by Miyu MaGirlYura So now you understand why it brought a reaction in me? Hehehe ~ It means that the artist is successful in bringing out the emotion through a song. One thing is for sure, Rain chose the perfect girl to sing with him. Both are top caliber artists in their own field. And because of him, I now like HyunA and I researched about her. Kum Hyuna (HyunA) I already know the entertainer named HyunA. I can't remember how, though. I just know her as the n
