I have been on a hiatus for more than a month because a lot of things have been happening to my life. There were changes that I needed to adapt to, because that is how life is. Life will keep throwing things at you, to help you grow and to direct you where you should be heading. It’s more like I keep maturing every single time because I always learn something new with life. I prayed a lot for a sign for me to take up another chapter (I will be studying again — soon I hope) in my life. I took this entrance exam for a university and I am praying I can finish that again.
Anyway, one of those that was added to my to-do list is working out. I started going to the gym with my husband and brothers last July 19. On top of house chores, familial responsibilities and work, an added extracurricular activity was added. I had to pitch this in my schedule. I also had to manage my days of service in masses so as to fix my schedule. Plus, I am also writing for our parish and if you want to read about reflections and faith, head on over to www.nsollqc.com. The biggest milestone that affected me is that my daughter started her classes already! She is in big school now and everything else is fresh for all of us. Even my husband is fixing his schedule for this!
I will try my best to write about all these stuff when I finally get the hang of my mixed up schedule. I am still trying to set things straight or when I will be comfortable with my time. At this moment actually, I am making the exams for our first quarterly examination for next week. I felt that I just needed to let this out before I finish those papers.
That’s about it… Hope you’re all enjoying your life!
Some might be a little disappointed with this month’s BDJ box because only one product is full size and the rest are sample sizes. But hey, Bioderma is one expensive skincare brand. I, for one, wished that somehow they included even one full size of Bioderma product, particularly the Micellar Water (even the 100 ml) so the subscribers will feel their money is more sulit.
Anyway, I am still a bit excited to try the other products from Bioderma since I am a big fan of their micellar water.
Sensibio Eye Contour Gel
The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain
I usually have one favorite item in every BDJ Box I receive. For the April 2015 BDJ Box, my favorite item is the Revlon Highlighting Palette in Bronze Glow.
This was said to be a dupe for Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick. I was able to try the Bobbi Brown one (pinkish shade) during the makeup workshop I attended last Saturday and I can attest that it may pass as a dupe.
There are three shades available – Peach Glow, Rose Glow and Bronze Glow. I got Bronze Glow and even if I were going to purchase just one among the three, I will still be getting the Bronze Glow because I love its shades!

I arrived in Bobbi Brown Megamall (between Bldg A and Bldg B) 11 am sharp. There were mommies too, I assumed, my fellow winners/readers of Topaz Mommy, a blog by Ms. Frances A. Sales. We were all waiting and when Ms. Frances arrived, my jaw dropped. I whispered to my new mommy friend, Aubrey, “Ang ganda ni Ms. Frances!” She walked through the store, wearing a black tube top, black pants, pearl necklace and a bare face– simply gorgeous!
I love this Bobbi Brown store because it is beautifully arranged, and the products are so pretty!
We were doing some icebreakers and just chatting before the workshop started. We also took turns swatching which shade will match our skin tones.Ms. Frances gave out Leuchtturm notebooks (Php 1200) to each of us.
Bobbi Brown Manager also dropped in to say hi. Ms. Sam Sadhwani was also there! We did not know that there was a mini workshop room inside the Bobbi Brown flagship store! Ms. Tamara was the one who taught us about the basics of makeup application. The model, of course, was Ms. Frances!
