Crabtree & Evelyn Facial Blotting Tissue

This has been in my kikay pouch for some time now (hence the decrepit pack). If you have been reading my blog, specifically the very rare beauty entries, you'd know I have an oily skin type. Hence, an oil blotting tissue is almost always the most needed tool I can't leave the house without -- Kleenex Oil Blotter to be exact. I have made a review on that in case you have not read it yet.

Woman of Worth: Angelyne Calica

For this particular WOW entry, I'm keeping it short, sweet, and simple. I'm featuring someone very close to my heart. Someone really dear to me.

Wildflour Cafe and Bakery Cronuts

If you haven't heard yet, Wildflour Cafe and Bakery will stop producing the famous croissant-donut hybrid effective end of this month. Needless to say, when this news reached my workplace, the girls and I had a mini heart-attack and some sort of panic. We came to an agreement to sample the intriguing pastry before it gets lost to oblivion. We did so last Monday at Podium.

New year, new season

new year's eve, authentic carbonara

While Christmas was spent in Baguio with hubby's family, the New Year's eve was spent with my folks in the house where I have been spending it ever since I can remember. We prepared a lot of things for media noche but I realized I wasn't able to photograph all. The spotlight though should be given to my first ever Authentic Pasta Carbonara. I should be able to share a recipe here next time. Bummer, I failed to capture my first attempt (which was successful, btw) of making leche flan, too!

Anyway, the early parts of the night were spent mostly in the kitchen. Then we eventually watched the street party outside. Finally I ended the year looking at the sky and watching the fireworks with the 3 most important people in my life. Those moments were one for the books, really. Recalling the night never fails to put a smile on my face even today. Thank you God for giving me a wonderful family and thank you for giving all of us a blessing of good health.

How did you welcome 2014? I hope you had a blast too!

Christmas 2013

I had to be on MIA the last month of last year to be able to have a full experience of my real life. I realized I have spent so much time dealing with my cyber life that it had easily become a hindrance for me to stay focused on things that really matter. Don't get me wrong, I'm still in love with blogging. It's just that it's been a while since I got away from this and the social media to really enjoy my surroundings and the people around me without any distractions.

Not so fast, 2014.

We're halfway done with January 2014. Wait...what? I haven't even shared with you yet how insane my break up with 2013 was! Oh well.. time flies, I guess?

I won't even launch this blog-year with a post on my New Year Resolutions, Personal Goals, etc. I'm gonna save you another annoying cliche on your feed. Instead, I'll be sharing with you an organizing system which I discovered during the long break. Watch the video and see if this could be of help to you, planner/organizer-geeks like myself. I'm already doing this and yuhh it's fun to finally have a system when you only have a notebook and a pen. (I have long since stopped buying a planner as I find the preset lines and dates and inserts unhelpful.)

Have an amazing year ahead!
