New Haircut at Bench Fix Salon

~Ola chingus

It's my laundry day today but as you can see I'm trying my best to multi-task hehe! As usual I had a scheduled work yesterday even though its weekend. And so after my shift I decided to go to Bench Fix Salon at Robinson Galleria to finally have a haircut. My hubby wanted me to have a long hair and I have been just too lazy to have my hair trimmed at least. It's been a year since I had my haircut.

I learned to love my long hair and  before going to the salon I kinda felt bad that I've decided to cut it. The photo below is one of the decent hairstyle that I know.
This was taken before my shift ended last Saturday. As you can see, my hair is getting close to being  Sadako Yamamura. Anyways, I did not have an appointment at Bench Fix Salon but its a good thing that they have a spot to walk-in customers. I just needed to wait for 10 minutes before a stylist attended to my haircut. My stylist name was I think Sam or Sammy...I'm really bad when it comes to remembering names. I just told him that I want to cut my hair short but it shouldn't be above my shoulder and strictly no hair bangs
I sooo love my new hair. I am very thankful to Mr. Sam and his assistant for giving me an admirable hair service. Now that I have my new hairstyle I'm looking forward on my plan on having a new hair color too. 
On a different note, I'm also looking forward to find someone who offers blog customization. I can only do as much as editing picture,changing photo signature and resizing images. I'd like to have a personalized blog template that would match my personality. Well then, have a blessed weekend everybody!

Human Nature Products


How are you guys doing?    
I'd like to share to you the new products that has been included on my must have list. I purchased a couple of Human Nature products late last year and I've been using it for my daily hygiene. Human Nature's product ingredients are 95% -100%  biodegradable. Since their products are made up of natural ingredients it would be least expected that you would have allergies. Their company is recognized by PETA for not testing their products with animals. For more product line info you may visit their website at Let's get in on!

And it does not stain on my underarm shirts.

I'm almost done with the deodorant and feminine wash and I'll be repurchasing both of it. Also, I'm on the second bottle of the facial wash. Besides The Beauty Bar and dealers selling Human Nature products, I have been seeing their products at grocery stores. It is much more available to the public and people would be able to discover the wonder of Human Nature products.

Sophie Martin Paris Haul

Just before the year 2012 ended, my bag and wallet was on its limit on serving me. The zipper of my wallet weren't working anymore and my shoulder bag looks tattered. I've decided to purchase my new wallet and bag at Sophie Martin Paris. I think that the quality of their products aren't that bad. I also liked the design of their bags. I initially wanted to buy two bags but it was really quite pricey and I wasn't ready yet on splurging money on expensive bags. 
Bag Neo Anartia 
Size: 15" x 4.7" x 10.8"
Description: Brown leather line tote with intricate buckles and rivet details
 Consists of 1 main zip closure, 1 inner zip pocket and a cellphone pocket inside
Price: 1490 pesos
Made in Indonesia 
 I find the design of the bag classy. 
 Wallet Bayard
Size: 7.7" x 1.2"x4.1" 
Description: Brown leather feel wallet comprising of 2 bill compartments, 2 multifunction pockets,
inner zipper pockets, 2 clear pockets, 10 card slides and a cellphone pocket

The color of the wallet matched the bag
This is my first expensive haul for this year. But I'm still looking for another style of bag and wallet that I might like. These two new babies should have an alternative right? Well then, see you all in my next post.

Clothing Haul Delayed Post


I'm already 20 somethin' but I still don't know what fashion style do I have. My outfits in my opinion, are very regular looking or rugged. I have to admit that I'm afraid on trying new outfit style. I keep on thinking that I might look like a trying hard. But I figured that I just need to choose the outfit that I am comfortable to wear or would make me feel confident. Below are some of my clothing purchases last December. Unfortunately I don't remember the prices anymore (ノ´д`)
 Top and mullet skirt was purchased at Genevie Gozum
Two pieces of sando from a thrift store
I dunno what this is but I call it korean jackets hehe!
Black and white lace sando 
Jackets, stockings and lace sando was purchased at Red Ginger stall at St. Francis Square

I am excited to have an OOTD post again. I'll just have to find a good place because the lighting inside our unit is really terrible. How about you what is your latest clothing haul?

PR: ROHTO Lycée Contact Eyedrops


Happy New Year to All! My 2013 started with a hectic work schedule as usual but I have a feeling that this is the beginning of a better year. Anyways, my first post for this year would be a product review of my new lens eyedrop. I was having problems with the lens eyedrop that I bought from a local optical shop. It doesn't help on relieving the strain on my eyes when I'm wearing any of the circle lenses that I have. My BFF Rin-chan was using ROHTO Lycée Contact Eyedrops from Japan that she purchased from a local online store and she said I can try to use it. This 8mL eye drop solution is worth 350 pesos.
Lycée Contact Eyedrops is manufactured by Rohto Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. (ロート製薬株式会社 Rōto Seiyaku Kabushiki-gaisha) a multi national FMCG and OTC pharmaceutical corporation headquartered in Tatsumi-nishi, Ikuno-ku, Osaka, Japan. Their products are mainly skin and eye care products (source: Wikipedia).   
Lycée Contact Eyedrops can be used in all type of contact lens. It's main function is to relieve discomfort of the eye due to exposure to wind or sun when wearing lenses. Base on my research, the solution does not have any coloring agent and but it is color pink because it contains Vitamin B12. 
Sodium Chondroitin Sulfate 0.5%
Potassium Chloride 0.08%
Sodium Chloride 0.44%
Sodium Bicarbonate 0.05%
Hydroxyethylcellulose 0.02%

How to Use:
For external use only
Put 1 or 2 drops in the affected eyes up to 6 times daily
Ask a doctor before use if you have narrow angle glaucoma
Do not touch tip of container to any surface to avoid contamination
Replace cap after each use
Discontinue using if itching, redness, or sensitivity occurs
The product should be handled with clean hands
Avoid direct sunlight, high temperature, and high humidity, and keep out of the reach of children

What I like about it ..  
  • It relieves eye discomfort effectively 
  • Reduce eye redness 
  • I really like the minty feeling on my eye
  • It has a hint of sweet's like my eyes smells good    
  • It has a free angled nozzle that makes it easy to seal/unseal the bottle 
  • Cute packaging 
What I don't like about it ..
  • Not locally available and can be purchased only to legitimate online stores
Will I try it again?   
  • Yes! Definitely! Aside from the kawaii packaging, it is a very effective lens eyedrop solution
