2014 Food Date Recap

We always love to eat and try new foods (but it must be within our budget, or else we go hungry). It was a stomach filled year for us. Hope 2015 brings more budget friendly dates.

New Year, New Look, New Me

Happy New Year!

So, I'm sporting a new hair-do (yipee!). I've been trying to tame my hair using dove and to no avail it remain frizzy and brittle, so I got mine rebonded over the holiday. For sure, I'll be maintaining this one.

My vacation in Bicol is a good gloomy one, it's been raining non-stop and I only got to go out on December 30th to meet with my high school friends classmates and its been raining hard.

On the plus side, I've got to spend more time with my family, especially my mother, we've been talking about life in general and also, about my love life in details. (It's also a good time to broach about marriage and kids, just so there won't be any surprises in the future as to where the two of us are heading).

I also miss the only love of my life, though we don't send each other messages as often as before, still it good to know that I'm being miss without being obsessive about it.

So, here's to a happier 2015.

When One Turns A Year Older

Labsie and I celebrated our birthdays with lots and lots of foods, love and laughter.

On September 1, Labsie and I went to Sto. Cristo Parish for Thanksgiving Mass, then later we went to his house for breakfast. It was to my surprised that Labsie bought me a birthday cake from Conti's (Mango Bravo) and his parents were singing me a birthday song. Labsie also bought me a bag from Mango (and I love it!).

Come dinner, we went to Sambo Kojin for an eat all you can buffet date and again its freebies for me (yay!). I went home feeling stuffy, full and in love. 

On September 18, Labsie and I again went to Sto Cristo  Parish for Thanksgiving Mass, with me were cake from Conti's (the Red Velvet kind) and my gift (a Timex Ironman Sport Watch) for the birthday boy. Then we have delicious breakfast again at their house with hite Spaghetti (my favorite) courtesy of Tita Rina. Around noon, we went to Amoranto's Sports Complex for Labsie swimming exercise. We then proceed to Lucky Chinatown's Mann Hann for dinner with his family.

Having our birthdays means my goals and priorities were shifted since it was where we begin to contemplate on our future. I have so many aspirations for us and I was hoping he is too. I pray that God will lead us down the path where both of us were holding hands to a future full of love and surprises.

Keeping it Healthy the USANA Way

I am not a big fan of taking supplements, I don't even take medicine even when I am sick or when I am having my period. But lately, I have been having a bouts of cough and colds and it worried me because its lasted for a whole month. It's a good thing my brother got a USANA Essentials. So, I persuaded to impart the Essentials to me and he gave in!

I have been taking it for two weeks now, and I cannot yet see its improvement. Maybe I will see it after a month of taking the essentials?

My Everyday Beauty Regimen: Nivea Visage Sparkling White Pore Minimizing Range

At 25 years old, I seriously need to take more care of my self. For starters, I never have problem with my skin, I don't break out, I seldom have pimples/acne (owing it to my Chinese ancestry), and I have no facial hair (except for eyebrows). However, I want to take care of my skin because I read somewhere that as we grow older we will encounter dark spots and whats not. So I decided to go with Nivea for my everyday face and body care.

For my facial care, I used Nivea Visage Sparkling White Pore Minimizing Foam (sometimes, I alternate it with Nivea Visage Sparkling White Pore Minimizing Scrub twice a week), then I apply the Nivea Visage Sparkling White Pore Minimizing Toner all over my face and neck, then for my moisturizer I apply Nivea Visage Sparkling White Pore Minimizing Day Care in the morning and Nivea Visage Sparkling White Pore Minimizing Night Care at night.

Overall, my Nivea experience is off to a good start. I never experience any breakouts, nor do my skin feel oily/greasy. But I really want to get out of Nivea is my pores to shrink and have a fairer skin.

I also use Nivea for my body. I used Nivea Extra Whitening Cell Repair and Protect Body Milk both in the morning and at night. I love the smell, its not thick and sticky, and its absorbed quickly. I also use UV Body Whitening Serum SPF 25 after I applied the Nivea Extra Whitening Cell Repair and Protect Body Milk. As for the Whitening Night Serum, I used it every night after I applied the Nivea Extra Whitening Cell Repair and Protect Body Milk.

Since, I have been using the Nivea products for only a week, I haven't yet seen any significant result maybe it will take time for it to show. In the meantime, I'll continue with my beauty regimen.

Also, I also used the Nivea Fruity Shine Strawberry for my lips. It provide my lips with long lasting moisture.
