Review: Orven’s Cafe

Orven’s Cafe

I have posted about some popular coffee shops here in Batangas before. My list is but the tip of the iceberg, as new ones pop up more and more frequently all over the province. I am all for trying these new places, and I do every now and then. So it’s a bit rare for me to keep coming back to any one particular place unless (1) I really do like the food, (2) the price is reasonable and (3) there’s parking space (fast-food chains don’t count as my daughter defaults to those whenever I ask her where to eat). I have been to Orven’s Cafe several times (for both dine-in and takeout orders), so that right there should tell you something.

Review: Limelight Sketch Book

Limelight sketch book

Confession: This is a product of my hoarder tendencies in action. See, I already have an art journal, a ream of practice paper, a calligraphy practice notebook, a mini-tower of a memo pad, 2 dotted notebooks, and an extra planner which I also use for calligraphy practice. That is already more than enough. That is, in fact, already too much. *cringe* But no, when I saw this available at the local National Bookstore, I just had to get myself one or die of wanting.

TonyMoly Dear Me Petite Cotton BB Cream SPF 30 PA++

By on June 11, 2013

There was a time when I was obsessed with BB creams. Thankfully, that phase has passed. So what am I doing buying yet another tube of the stuff? It’s Animetric’s fault really.. 😛 Just kidding. But it was her review of this BB cream that convinced me to get one myself.

These days I am more into taking care of my skin than beautifying (naks!) so I go out with just sunblock, eyebrow pencil and maybe the occasional lip color. Not to say that I have perfect skin that does not need any cover-up, because my skin is pretty far from perfect as it is. I just am too lazy to bother with makeup. 😉 But I have this soft spot for BB creams, so when my office mates decided to buy a tube each (they went for SkinFood Mushroom Multi-care BB Cream) I decided to get one myself. Gaya-gaya lang? 😛 But I got a different BB cream:

Review: Avon Ultra Moisture Rich Lipstick in Sheer Red and Knockout Pink

By on May 22, 2013

★★★★☆

The truth is I just wanted to see if I could do a decent lipstick swatch. Mama happened to bring home two lipsticks one day, and so I tried and swatched them first before picking one and giving the other to her (though I liked both very much). I picked Sheer Red btw ;). These are both from Avon Ultra Moisture Rich line of lipsticks.
