Nothing makes a woman feel more sexy and confident than wearing the right undergarment. Victoria’s secret has gone from just a lingerie fashion house into a major retailer of  women’s wear and beauty products. I love their lingerie collection, in fact, I love wearing VS undies!

Recently, I have paid a visit to their online store and bought myself a couple of undies as a gift for myself this Christmas.. Ratty, old granny panties is a thing of the past. Lingerie fashion has became more fashion forward, taking into account that the women who wear them are empowered by making them feel more self-secure, regardless the size tag. :)  By the way, get 20% off your total online purchase nov.29 til dec.3. Besides this offer, they also have Special sale on selected items..

Here are  some pics of my purchase…

Ok… Every woman dreams of getting girly-girl stuffs as presents this Christmas… I am one of them. I wouldn’t mind getting a Prada bag, shoes from Jimmy Choo or Manolo Blahnik, a whole-year supply of MAC make ups or nice earrings from Tiffany’s.. ZAP!!! ok, I’m back to reality! Oh well…

On to my wishlist:

I have been eyeing for a kick-ass DSLR camera from Nikon, the D90. I am so loving it! I wanna get my hands on this baby. Considering I am just about to start my serious stint (and I mean serious!) in photography, it’s kind of ambitious to jump right into this camera. I have read that a D40 or D60 can be adequate for beginners like me but, since I had a old school Russian SLR camera (which was handed down to me by dad, bought in the 1980’s), I think i can manage having this camera intended for serious amateur photographers. I am drooling over it… BIG TIME!

I know i have to save up if i want to buy this for myself… I wonder when but I am so determined to own a d90 soon.. Gotta work my butt off!

My quest on going all-natural and organic has directed me to another addiction: soaps! if you recall from an earlier blog, BNHS are made of natural ingredients, eliminating harsh chemicals that is safe even for the most sensitive and baby’s skin. And when i finally got to use them, it’s love at first smell! and love at first wash!

My brother strongly expressed that having 7 differently scented bar soaps is insane and i’m stupid for falling for the organic plot! (plus going to the bathroom almost every minute to sniff and bask in the scents of fresh soaps like a “rugby girl” is totally, absolutely and 100% neurotic!) but i beg to disagree. You see guys, women love to be pampered (aye!) and if you consider that bathing should be a wonderful, soothing, cleansing and relaxing experience, (just like i do) then using one scent a day is a luxury everyone woman is entitled to and should afford. Just like males are visual creatures, the female species are suckers for perfumes and scents. Anyway, I just wanna knock my brother for saying that! Btw, i’m still adding more soaps to my stash! hahahaha

back to the review, this is the Icy choco soap of BNHS:

(96.82% NATURAL)
“For chocolate-mint lovers, enjoy bathing with the stimulating scent of peppermint and the mild exfoliation of cocoa powder. This delicious-looking soap also gives out a wonderful lather — simply a bonus for you!”

Pretty points:

1. the bar is not soft and doesn’t melt easily.

2. puts up a good lather. leaves your skin smooth and squeeky clean. mild on skin too.

3. made up of natural ingredients, environment-friendly, biodegradable

4. if you’re a mint lover, this one’s for you. tip: let it stay on your skin for about 2-3 minutes while rubbing your skin gently in circular motion. the minty/ menthol-y feel on skin is just great while indulging on the chocolatey scent which is all over the bathroom and it’s quite invigorating. The minty sensation on your skin will linger even after you rinse with water and get out of the shower.I love this because it’s really hot outside and this will keep your skin feel quite cool. :)
Pipay points:

1. it easily rinses off- but compared to ilog maria, IL is a lot easier to rinse off.

2. it’s 96.82% natural, remaining 4% ,maybe, is chemical, so there’s a very slim chance that you can get allergies… note very slim. It still depends on your skin and your preference- if you’re going all-out natural or not. but in my case, I didn’t develop any skin rashes ad redness.

verdict:

4.5 out of 5 stars!

When you get used working your way through Ebay.ph, you will find that some sellers consistently have nice pieces and my featured seller, raicheal1015 is one of my favorites for 3 reasons.

1. Most of her items are branded and are sold at low prices. Also, the anxiety of them being pre-owned- clothes may have undeclared defects- will not bug you at all because all her clothings are in excellent condition. Plus, a seller’s reputation and credibility is reflected on her feedback score ( number beside the username) and the precentage of positive feedbacks, which is her case is 100%. Meaning she hasn’t received any negative feedback at all and that’s really good.

2. Her listings have pictures when you are browsing among thousands of clothes in the Women’s clothing category. So it’ll save you the pain in the neck of clicking the item and waiting for the picture to upload. Then if it’s not “visually appealing”, you got to go back to the list and proceed to another item, thus the cycle continues. Believe me, it’s really annoying doing it repeatedly. :P

3. She gives detailed description of each clothing and if you have other questions, the seller responds promptly. Also, her shipping rate is same to that of Air21 (80php for Metro Manila) and a reasonable 120php flat rate for provincial shipping. Some sellers in Ebay.ph has a shipping of 100php for MM or 150php flat rate to all destinations. This depends on which courier the seller is using or if they intend to gain a little bit by overpricing the shipping fee. So as a buyer, you also have to consider the shipping fee and the courier the seller uses because some couriers have the “Critical Areas” where they don’t deliver or the shipping rate zooms up to 200-300php if your place is not covered by their delivery services.

However, some draw back about buying from this seller (and others) is that since her items are more visible than others, bidding prices soars up very high and fast, the competition is very stiff and if you have a slug-like connection, the moment you have just clicked the confirm bid button, another person had already outbided you. Also, you really have to watch your item closely 2 hours before it ends because that’s when the bidding war gets nasty and CRAZY. You have to refresh every minute. So the point here is it’s very hard to win an item you really like if you aren’t very vigilant and aggressive. So be ready to shed it all for that Marc jacobs top or Diane von Furstenberg tunic or Mango gold haltertop or Anna Sui printed minidress!

Here are some of here items. You can view all of the items HERE. (Take note of the remaining time before bidding ends always). Happy viewing!

1. White Crochet Oversized sleeves dressy top

2. Zara Blue design Minidress

3. Sinequanone Brown Tunic/ Minidress

4. Escada Sport Embelished Violet top

5. Ann Taylor Violet design Babydoll Top

6. ZARA TRF Black Ruffles Victorian Turtleneck top

7. Marc Jacobs Brown Floral Silk Overlap top

What’s not to love about this girl? She’s pretty, talented and she has short hair!!! I love it! (waahh… i want!)

OK. First and foremost, Hello kitty has been in every young girl’s life.. I mean if you are totally ignorant about hello kitty then you’re probably from Pluto! It’s good that some loves hello kitty until they become mature adults but when I saw this…. this, this is one of the reasons why sometimes HK fanatics scare the hell out of me…I just wanna scream and say, “For the love of God!!! what the heck is wrong with you people?” Totally way over, over the top! If you’re gonna ask me, it looks like a panty shield attached to a string with a hello kitty drawing! Or it’ s really a hello kitty eye patch converted to bikini? Haaayyy…Maybe it’s also the model that freaked me out…the location of the tattoo kinda bothers me.

I just hope Hello kitty fashion would be something more “hello kitty”, if you know what I mean.

ILOG MARIA

What can i say? I fell in love with this soap! (even ignoring my kojic soaps for this one!) You will worship this soap from the very moment you step inside your bathroom because it overpowers any unpleasant smell and the oh-so! heavenly scent lasts long! More like of a bathroom air freshener and soap in one! Even besting that experience when you pass by a lush store! (that is an opinion of course!) The scent is like mixed fresh mints, sweet milk and…. colgate! hahaha I know, it doesn’t smell like some perfumes and tooty fruity colognes. But this is a real olfactory treat guys! Imagine, every bath is a step closer to nature! That’s it!! This soap smells and feels like nature! I am no good in advertising.. neither in choosing words that can persuade anyone .. (not that i lack communication skills) but man… you gotta try them.

The honey and milk combo is just right… you’ll get squeeky, clean, smooth, moisturized and happy skin after you take a bath! I think the propolis gives this soap the minty smell. Unlike conventional soaps, this one doesn’t form bubbles that much..It does, very minimal, but when you let it stay on your skin for a while, the bubbles just dissolve into a thin, creamy liquid.. resembling that of milk when you generously rub it on your skin! And it rinses very easily too!! Also you won’t get any sticky, heavy feeling (like when you just washed with a moisturizing body wash) after rinsing this off! Instead it leaves your skin ultra clean and bare but moisturized! This is has a low pH thus it’s doesn’t alter the normal skin acid level unlike some soaps out there which is alkalinic. If you have sensitive skin, this one’s for you!!!

I am so crazy about this soap that i bought 6 of them now! I am planning to build my own stash so that I’ll have enough supply for 1 year and then i can bring them to Norway with me! hahaha The plan is to buy 12 bars but i think before i leave the country, I’ d be having more than what i actually need!

So go and join me in my indulgence!
