January Favorites

This post was supposedly published last January 31st, but things got a little crazier. 

Anyway, I thought I would share my favorites – could be food, drinks, make-up, movies, clothes – or people (?). 
I just want to make this monthly post a “feel-good” entry so I have something to look back to – that’s how I want my blog to be anyway – all about the things I love 🙂 

Villa Del Conte Dark Chocolates
I don’t get easily go mad over chocolates – unless they are dark and luscious! 
Villa Del Conte sent me a box of the new Bonta Dark Chocolates. I guiltlessly indulge every night.
These hand crafted artisanal chocolates from Padova, Italy gives you the healthy goodness of dark chocolate in three luscious flavors, Dark Chocolate with White Cream and Cocoa Cookies in silver foil wrapper, Dark Chocolate with Cocoa Cream and White Chips in gold foil wrapper, and Dark Chocolate with Hazelnut Cream and Whole Hazelnuts in red foil wrapper. Check out the kiosk at Greenbelt 5, Century City Mall, Shangri-la Mall, Resorts World, Alabang Town Center, SM Megamall, and Robinsons Magnolia.

Kenzo and DKNY Be Delicious
I am back wearing two of my favorite scents. Kenzo is the scent I wear since I was in High School. It has become my signature scent and it brings back a lot of fun memories. DKNY Be Delicious is one of the few scents I find sassy and playful. I am using Travalo and Perfume Pod to bring the scents with me wherever I go.

Lipsticks and Tints

These are the shades and products I am currently obsessed with: 

Skin Food Lip and Cheek Tint – my lip brush kind of murdered the first pan 😀 
VMV Lip Gloss (Tall & Tan) – love the shade
Pink Sugar Lip & Cheek Tint
Revlon Lustrous Lipstick (Seductive Sienna) – doesn’t dry my lips!
Channel (Rouge Allure) – long wearing – real red lipstick!

Nail Love Products 
I know I am super busy when I don’t get the time to go to salon for mani-pedi. Doing it at home saves the nails 😀 
Love the Cinderella Kit from Morgan Taylor (thank you Joel for the gift!). I especially love the cotton-candy-like shade.

I also love the OPI Chip Skip Base Coat (Php 499 at Rustan’s). It really saves my nails from chipping and cracking. I love the Nail Polish Remover (Php 99 at Miniso) – just because it is press type. 
Honest Junk

I have been eating a lot of Cheetos this month (my comfort food!). But trying to go back at eating healthier snacks. I received some “junk food” from @honestjunk last month and I just recently got the chance to eat them 😀 What they gave me are real good stuff! True to the brand’s name, they are offering us real junk food with less guilt and a lot more healthier. At least they are honest. I love the cookies they sent me in Malunggay flavor.  I paired them with Del Monte Fizzy Fruit Juices. If you want pineapple or pomelo juice that is like soda, this is for you. Available at 7-Eleven stores.

Titan Fuse Cable

Titan Fuse Cable
So ecstatic when Titan came up with this cable for Android phones! It is super durable and considered the toughest cable on earth! I never miss it in my gazilion gadget box. I also love Ye!! Powerbank. They are both available at Digital Walker. 
That Iced Salted Caramel Mocha Drink from Starbucks
You would rarely see me at Starbucks – and if you do, I must be drinking Coffee Jelly. But one fine afternoon, we hung out at Starbucks and I tried this drink. I like it.
