My Own Skin Food BB Cream

I was first introduced to Blemish Balm or BB Creams when Ria and Brendel brought lady bloggers together for a little kikay get-together some few weeks ago. I was then with Grace, Ate Joyce, Leah, and Alma. While we were at TLC Shop Fab Finds, they made me try out a Skin Food Peach Sake Pore BB cream (Shade #1). I was too close to the mirror to notice, but as I put on the BB Cream, everyone who was there said there was a difference to the way my skin looked.

Anyways, last Sunday, Ria, Brendel, Ate Joyce and I went to TLC Shop again. This time I got me my own Skin Food Peach Sake Pore BB Cream of shade #2. It's my second day of using it and I could clearly see the difference each time I apply it on my face. It takes just a small amount of the bb cream to give me full coverage. I like that it acts not only as my make-up base but also as my sunscreen and as an effective concealer. I currently use it with my favorite Pond's Rosy Beige powder. The two are a great combo for my daily look. I intend to experiment in using it with other powders and foundation too so I could see which one works best for me.

According to Health Tips Directory, BB creams are said to have been used as a treatment for patients who underwent laser skin surgery. Beauty companies then discovered that they have excellent results to patients using them. With this, they made it as an addition to their line of beauty products and made it available for all.

5 Calming Drinks According to Yahoo!

I logged in on my Yahoo! Messenger and the famous Y! Insider popped it's usual good morning headlines. One particularly interesting title caught my eye - 5 Drinks That Calm You.

The five drinks mentioned are milk, hot cocoa, black tea, green tea, cold water.

I particularly like the 5th item, which said -

Drink a glass of cold water, then go for a walk outside. The water gets your blood moving and the air invigorates by stimulating the endorphins that de-stress you.

I never knew drinking a glass of cold water could actually help in de-stressing. But now that I know of it, I might make it a habit each night whenever the to-do list isn't getting any shorter and the night isn't young.

Beauty Tips iPhone app for the on-the-go kikay

Eye Care Tip: A slice of raw potato can be placed under your eyes to reduce dark circles

Eyebrows Tip: Your eyebrow should start right above the inner corner of your eye, peak at the outer corner of your iris, and curves down towards the end.

Wouldn't it be cool to have those beauty and fashion do's and don'ts right at your fingertips? The Beauty Tips iPhone app gives you exactly that and more.

Beauty Tips gives you about a hundred tips for your kikay needs. The one I have right now, in particular, is an eye makeup tip. It says "when applying an eyeliner, start from the inside corner of your eye and work outwards."

Got me cheap and chic new shoes

I have always been a huge huge huge fan of shoes! I think it's fair to say that this is the one thing in fashion that I'm most obsessed about. I have an absurd addiction to one point in the early part of my post-baccalaureate months, I would buy pairs of shoes around 3-4 times in every 2 months...that's a lot more than what I need! Also, the shoe-filled five-layer rack in my apartment is a visual proof of the addiction. LOL!

I am particularly into high heels. Back in college, and up to the early post-graduation days, my daily wear was always the 3- or 4-inched ones that, more often than not, give you blisters. I don't know how I put myself through all the uncomfy-ness of it all but I did...for the love of fashion. LOL!
The most recent pair of heels I bought is this one right here...

The last pair I bought was from last month - this 3-inch Feretti, which costs Php399. I always go for the affordable ones.

This has rarely been used as I have been opting for the more comfy heels that are actually lower than my usual pairs. Like the ones you'll see now. I bought them just today at SM...latest additions to my rack...
