Happy International Lippie Day!

July 27, 2016

Happy International Lipstick Day!

A woman can only have one lipstick - said no woman ever! 

International Lipstick Day is finally happening on July 29, 2016 and for the first time ever, I get to celebrate this awesome event and hey, if you're a lippie junkie, you get to celebrate too as every awesome store I know is throwing us a massive lippie sale! No kidding here.

So, before you drool over my lippie collection on the image above, (and that's just a portion of my collection). Here's a run down of my top 3 stores that is currently having a lippie sale:


Beauty MNL is literally my go to beauty supply store. I even buy my organic shampoos on their site sometimes. Too lazy to go out. They're having massive discount for up to 50% on Loreal, Maybelline, Detail, etc. Better get your hands on some those shades that you've been wanting because these lippies seriously sells like pancakes! or tuyo (fish) para mas relate!



Calyxta is another beauty online store that I'm currently curious with. I haven't tried purchasing from their site but my bff blogger - CJ of frommanilawithlove.blogspot.com referred me to their site and I am actually thinking of purchasing some imported stuff from them. Hopefully they have COD!



Probably the most accessible for us lippie junkies is the SM Beauty Store, seriously, lalayo ka pa ba? Hala sige, sugod na mga beh!


Sharing with you some snapshots of my fave lippies,

MAC Satin Lipstick Retro



Pink Sugar Sugartint Queen Bee



Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Beeper


Kylie Gloss Literally



Kylie Lip Kit Candy K



Sleek True Colour Lipstick Bare All


Somebody, please restrain me from buying more lippies, ugh! Can't help it! >.<

Happy lippie hoarding!

1st Birthday Celebration: #AryaTurns1

July 22, 2016

Whew! It's been a week since Arya's birthday and I barely had the time to get through it or even to blog about it. I'm turning into this kind of Mom who's too busy at work. Jeeez!

But, as everybody says, if there is a will, there is a way!

Sharing with you the photos and full costings on my daughter's first birthday. Ehem! We didn't really splurge on this too much as we had a huge Game of Thrones Christening party two months ago with everybody being there. This party is more for the family and some people who didn't get to come on Arya's Christening.

Breakdown:

Food & Venue:
Kenny Rogers, Fairview Terraces = P425.00/30pax = P12,750.00
1 Hour venue extension = P1,000.00

Sesame street 3d Cake by Red Ribbon = P1,550.00

Host & Balloons:
Host = P1,000.00
Balloons = P500.00

Giveaways:
Swiss Army Perfume (from Fragrance Factory 100ml) = P350.00
28 slim bottles (from Fragrance Factory 10ml) = P8.00/piece = P224.00
28 pcs container box (from Fragrance Factory) = P2.00/piece = P56.00

Popcorn & Cups:
40 pcs from SM Fairview Cooking and Bakery store = P40.00/10 pieces = P120.00
6 packs of Caramel Popcorn from SM Supermarket = P28.00/pack = P168.00

Sesame street Tarpaulin:
Design = Free (Hubby made it)
Printing = P150.00 

Total Spent: P17,868.00 Oha, hindi na masama!

Honestly, if I had the time I would make this a full blown birthday party with so many effects and fountains at kung ano ano pang pakulo but I had to deal and work with I have. I've been feeling a bit guilty lately because I'm focusing too much on work that I barely have time to focus on more important things. Sometimes, a day or two would go by without me seeing Arya because I come home late at night and leave too early in the morning. 

But, I'm making this pact with myself that on her 7th Birthday, I'll definitely make sure to make that birthday a blast!

BTW, if you're cramming for birthday needs, try to join Facebook groups for Birthday Party Needs and I assure you that you'll be able to figure out your party in seconds!

I'll make sure to add that on my next blog post! :)

Win A Wish by SHOPBACK - May Your Wish Be Granted!

July 11, 2016

Have you heard? Christmas came early as Shopback starts granting wishes mid-year!

Shopback has been my go-to discount / voucher site every time I go shopping at Lazada, buying Arya's diapers. I've earned a few points and I've been saving them for the best.

Anywhoo! Right at this moment, Shopback launched their Win A Wish Blogging contest, where bloggers can simply blog about their #UnliWish from Shopback's partner stores and there's a huge chance that our fairy friends from Shopback might actually get your wish granted. Cool eh? Please send some fairy dust over here!

Full mechanics here: 


I'm pretty sure you'll be drooling rainbows once you find out how extensive and ahh-maa-zing their store partners are...coz, I honestly did! Snap! Snap! Snap!


I am actually entering myself, because, Hello?! Who wouldn't want a wish granted? Oh, and by the way, you can list as many wishes as you like. I'm turning 26 in a few months and Christmas will be here too so I'm really crossing my fingers on this one. 

I honestly couldn't finish my list but fortunately I managed to lower it down to 5. Ha! So, people, wish away!

Rookie Mommy PH's Top 5 Wish Items from Shopback

1. Point and shoot camera. For the times I needed to produce great images for my blog and videos for my vlog. (source: Lazada)



2. Beauty brushes. I need these so bad, I don't even know why I need them. I just know that I need them! (source: Sephora Philippines)

3. Lippie. Anyone who watches my vlog knows that I am very much addicted to Lippies. So, this has got to be on the list! (source: Sephora Philippines)


4. For the hubby. Because you know, I can't be selfish all the time. (source: Lazada)


5. For the wife and the husband. Again, I've got to share. That's what my mom taught me when I was little. (source: Raffles Luxury Hotels & Resort)


Whew! That was a lot of wishes already! 

What?

You're still here?

Go! Now!

Don't waste our time reading my list! Go make your own already!
