Must-attend: the 32nd Manila International Book Fair

Nothing beats reading a good book on a pleasantly cold rainy first ofSeptember. What gets me more excited as my birth month comes is seeing thousands of books - a heavenly sight for all bookworms - at the 32nd Manila International Book Fair!

I've marked in my calendar the dates September 14 to 18 since last moth. The 32nd Manila International Book Fair will be held from 10am to 8pm at the SMX Convention Center, Mall of Asia Complex, Pasay City.

Aside from publishing companies, exhibitors also include arts, education and training institutes, language schools, open universities, online book stores, tutorial services and more. For the complete list of exhibitors, click here.

See you there!

Review: Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint

If I were to choose between a lipstick and a lip tint, I would choose the latter without thinking twice. I love how lip tints stay on the lips even after eating and it doesn’t get on your teeth. =D

Moving on with today’s review…
Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint in No. 2
According to Etude House, the Fresh Cherry Tint “promotes moist and shiny cherry lips with a creamy, smooth texture.”

Unwrapped: Suesh 8-piece Blush Set

As I journey deeper into the realm of eyeshadows, powders, lip tints and brow liners, I begin to appreciate the various types of makeup brushes and its uses. It was not until recently that I became aware that a powder brush is different from a foundation brush and that blending, angled, shading and smudge brushes are all types of eyeshadow brushes.  And that there can be as many as 28 brushes in a single set!

I don’t want to spend too much on makeup brushes just yet because I’m not sure if my fondness for makeup will endure (hehehe). The first brush set that I got was the EcoTools 5-piece makeup brush set. I was on the look out for another brush set when I stumbled upon Suesh Makeup Toolkit's discount offering in Ensogo. Lucky for me, I got one of the 243 vouchers that offered 50% discount from the Blush makeup brush set of Suesh Makeup Toolkit.

Review: Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals BB Cream

(I’m so sorry it took me a year to post this review)

I used Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals BB Cream for about three months before I went searching for other bb cream brands. The selling point of this bb cream is its price. It retails for only Php249 which is way cheaper, if not the cheapest, than other bb creams in the market.

Why Globe Gcash is one of the preferred payment options of online sellers?

Easy to use, convenient and can be used to buy numerous products and services – these features make Globe Gcash as one of the preferred payment options in the ever growing Philippine e-commerce industry. A mobile phone with a Globe or TM SIM card is all you need to get access to Globe’s electronic wallet system. Learn how to register for Globe Gcash here.

I’ve seen many (and transacted with some) online sellers in Multiply, Sulit and Ebay Philippines who uses this type of payment option. As an online seller, this is my most preferred payment option. I instantly receive an SMS notifying me of the payment the client has made. The SMS shows the exact amount the client has sent me, name and number of the Gcash sender and the total balance of my e-wallet. This eliminates the need to open my laptop and check my bank account balance online or go to the nearest ATM to check if the cash deposit has been made by the client.

My Gcah Card arrived almost three weeks after I submitted my application.
