How To Fix Broken Makeup (Powder)

Got nothing to do during the holidays? Here’s something to keep yourself busy~ organize and fix your makeup kit! I did that exactly so I came across my broken Catwalk Cosmetics Contour Palette while cleaning up my dresser and got inspired to do this post. It fell off the table while I was doing makeup during a shoot.

My 1st Sephora Online Haul | GCash Amex Winners

OMG my Sephora orders arrived right in time for Christmas!! :) I got it in less than 10 days after it was delivered to our courrier’s US address. So quick!

Burger Bar: What’s your beef?

We were invited for a sneak eat at the newly opened BURGER BAR Restaurant in Greenbelt 2. It’s on the same strip as itallianis and Izakaya. I’m not a huge fan of burgers, but this restaurant convinced me to have more than one burger in a single sitting. *burp* Of course, a burger meal wouldn’t be complete without the extra carbs on the side. For starters, we had ONION RINGS (P80). These are soooo good! One of the best ones I’ve had because the batter is really thin and cooked perfectly. GOLDEN CHEDDAR MOZARELLA STICKS (P225) These may seem likeRead more
