Who stole my Christmas?

I'm really starting to hate the holidays due to the unbearable traffic and hellishly greedy cab drivers!!! Argh, so frustrating. If I have a choice I would just lock myself in our apartment and stay there til the holidays are over. But I sadly can't. So I had to brave the streets and just give in to the waiting time and the whims of these %$@&& drivers.

Last Saturday, I went to Qiwellness spa for their Asian Secrets lulur body scrub launch. I was invited by Liz (thanks Liz!) and I just can't say no to free pampering! I had to reschedule it though coz I wanted to take Mich with me (since she's the spa addict). I saw some blogger friends though! Hi Liz, Shen and Alex! :)

wearing: Ramon Valera tent shirt, F21 shorts, custom made oxfords

with mah girl Alex. :)

love her red Ensembles skirt!

Fierce Liz

Got to take home a gift pack from Asian Secrets and a spa voucher which I'll be using on Wednesday so watch out for my spa post soon! Excited. :)

Come Sunday, I got a visit from my sister. She just came from a trial bridal make-up from Salon Republic. I didn't really like her make-up that much coz it was--for me--too dark.  I suggested she buy and use a lighter shade of lipstick instead. So we went to the nearest mall (hello SM Cubao!) and searched for the perfect shade and brand. Here's her before photo..

And here's her (I think) improved make-up after buying a nude pink lipstick from Revlon...

I also bought a super red lipstick from Revlon to try and stop my excessive lip peeling vice.

Before outfit post...

I also got my much needed Inasal fix at Bacolod Chicken House. The closest I could ever get to the original Bacolod Inasal. Yum.
