  • This sale consists of ten tops I haven’t been using in awhile but are still eye candy and in good condition…INCLUDING what I believe to be the main event of this sale: a TOPSHOP real knit wool sweater that I spotted to be similar or exact to what Emilia Clark wore in the Me Before You upcoming film trailer. This particular piece I’m convinced is the main event of my blog sale.

THE NEW PHP129 MINT POLISH

I have another new and different polish favorite, it’s a mint but it isn’t stereotypically that baby turquoise aqua hue.  Meet Essence’s “Like An Unforgettable Kiss” collection polish in 02 Always on My Mint.

It’s more green than blue, like a hazy sea foam with more yellow and I dare say a tiny hint of grey (this is more noticeable in real life).  It leans more towards pistachio.  Read on for the full post.

TOP 5 SUNSCREENS SORTED BY SKIN TYPE

Let’s save our skin from the early onslaught of sun damage this summer (and all year round), shall we?  Here are five locally available non-sticky sunscreens to choose from depending on your skin type.  Prices vary greatly but I chose each one based on suited skin type…five for five.

Cetaphil DAYLONG Light Gel SPF50, NIVEA Sun Protect & Moisture, VMV Hypoallergenics Armada Sport 70, Shiseido Wet Force S SPF50, Belo Sun Expert SPF40 Face

Out of these five sunscreens I have used three.  The two other sunscreens I have applied but not tested under long sun exposure but people I know and am about to mention have used them already.  Read on to get a closer look at which skin type each sunscreen suits and why I like them.

These were too pretty to not photograph the very next day.  The beautiful ARANÁZ Palma releases have had me sighing since last year.  I came home with the tall Palma travel toiletry pouch which I spotted early November last year.  I got the pouch on special offer yesterday, I promised not to mention how much their promo is so you guys can just go and find out.  Read on to have a closer look.

MY TOP 5 WATERPROOF MASCARAS 2016

I just realized we’ve got a theme going, revolving around the number 5 to be exact, and you’ll be seeing that number for a couple of weeks I should think.  Yup, I’m doing an updated journey through my top 5 favorites in different categories (I just noticed so many of you are looking at my 2013 top 5 picks and we need to fix that).  The weather is slowly warming up and I’ve got myself thinking about my desert island picks and all that jazz.  All I know, for sure, that if I was going to pick just one makeup item to bring on a deserted island it certainly would be waterproof mascara and for tools a lash curler.

I am about to show you what I think are my locally available top 5 waterproof mascaras.  I put my foot down on the selection to make sure they are all locally available, at least here in Manila.  Please note they are not necessarily the cheapest mascaras they’re the best mascaras available here in my opinion (department store brands included). Read on to see what brands they are.

FIVE UNDER THE SUN FACTS ABOUT ME AND YOU

I’ve never been the most toned beach bum out there but I’ve loved summers in the Philippines ever since my tender years.  My parents took me to the beach every year until I was a teenager at least 2-3 times a year.

Swimsuit by Roxy Ph, shades by Sunnies (gifts from both brands).

I thought I’d just let loose and tell you a couple of real things about myself and summer then you can tell me your 5 summery facts in the comments.  Scoot over, Olaf.
