It’s a Benefit-kind-of week! | BDJ Box 7-day Challenge

15 Jul

Classes are suspended today and what better way to spend this bed weather than blog? Right? I know I have been not blogging lately due to work but I am really trying to. I still take pictures of products but haven’t really had time to take pictures of actual usage.

But for the BDJ Box 7-Day Challenge, I really tried to document my usage.

Here is a photo collage of the 7 sample sizes that I used for the week.

The BrowHaus Experience | My First Brow Threading

9 Jul Brow Haus Greenbelt 5

I was torn between using this coupon or not because our family had a trip last weekend of May. Hubby knows me so well that is why he pushed me to go even at night, and he will just meet us up after work. I called Greenbelt 5 for an appointment and I was set for 7pm. I brought my daughter with me and we were supposed to ride a cab. It was drizzling that time and getting a cab was not easy. We waited for 30 minutes, walked toward a main road and waited again. I got impatient and just rode a jeepney and the MRT to get to Ayala station just to get there.

It was a long walk from the MRT Ayala Station to Greenbelt 5. Brow Haus was a bit hard to find in Greenbelt 5 because I think it was in the 4th level. It was beside Studio Fix by Alex Carbonell.

Unboxing the June 2014 BDJ Box

26 Jun

Ever heard of the saying that love is sweeter the second time around? Though I am not really a fan of giving second chances to people because I believe that you have it make it right the first chance you got. Anyway, if its makeup and skin care we’re talking about with chances, I would not cut the wire.

When the June 2014 BDJ Box came, I was happy! Though the box felt light, I found a take two of the Benefit x BDJ Box collaboration! Here are what’s inside:

Porefessional PRO Balm

Fake Up Concealer

The Unexpected Turn

24 Jun

Here I am typing this post at exactly 1:54 am this June 25th. I wanted to finish draft posts but I am too sleepy to review any product. Actually, I am just troubleshooting the printer and laptop connections because I had to print out materials for work.

Speaking of work, yes the right work finally came. I was not really looking for one with a high pay. I looked for a job that would still allow me to be a wife and a mom, so I can still take care of my family and our home.

It came just at the right time. I don’t earn much… but I am happy with this new career I have. I am a Registered Nurse but this career shift is very much fine by me. I am a preschool teacher now to Senior Nursery students, with age 4 and 5. Plus, I am very much grateful for all the perks – free ride and free tuition fee for my preschooler. These are a big help already. Of course my daughter studies in the same school I teach, only with different teachers.

So there, maybe I would have less posts this time since work came in addition to my priorities. I will still try to keep this blog active as much as I can.

Here’s hoping you get the unexpected turn in your life too!

Since there was no connection at home for more than a week, I used my time with house chores, work, and of course, taking care of my dearest three year old daughter.

The May 2014 BDJ Box was filled with very usable items. Great items for every day use. I am always up for new products, test it out if it works for me.

Belo Essentials AcnePro Pimple Gel | Third Step to Clear Skin System

30 May Belo AcnePro Pimple Gel

I don’t buy over-the-counter anti-acne gel products because, from my experience, it does otherwise on my skin. I have tried a few and each time I ended up with bigger zits that have pus way deep inside my dermis! I will not name them anymore out of respect, but I tell you, my skin went cray cray with every use of these products. Glad that Sample Room released samples of Belo AcnePro Pimple Gel first so I could try it out first before actually purchasing one. I am willing to try out yet another anti-acne gel to see if it will make me break out or not.
