Shopping for Ever Belina Advance BB Cream and Dark Eye Concealer

Today, there is a lot of beauty regimens in the market but I don’t know a lot about them but not so long ago I tried using BB cream or Blemish balm since my face became old and dull, aside from BB cream I also bought dark eye concealer since the skin below my eyes are quite dark like how a panda looks like.

Honestly , when the world around me become gray I look even worse than before but seeing how my sister take care of her self I was encourage to do the same especially when my mother says I am still young but I already look like someone in their 50’s. Yeah right, it was been a long time that my mother and other relatives had told me that I already looked like a woman with dozens of kids since I can’t even comb my hair at home and then even classmates and instructor in college who accidentally saw me in town always blurted out that my sister dress well than me so I decided to slowly look after myself to regain courage and self-confidence, although I only used these beauty regimes when I go to church every Sunday.

Sometime ago a friend had encourage me to learn how to use makeup since she is doing well with it but being not vain and because my sister was the one who do makeups at me when I am younger I declined the thought of learning how to use makeups.

Anyway, with the help of the young sale’s lady in town where my mother is affiliated as a dealer I was able to choose which BB cream to use, I have asked her opinion which Bbcream is the best since she used one daily. I chooses Ever Bilena Advance BB Cream Whitening and Advance Perfect Eye Concealer.

BB cream is promoted as an all-in-one facial cosmetic product to replace serum, moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock. It can be worn alone as a tinted moisturizer, over serum and moisturizer as a regular foundation, and under powder, depending on the desired amount of coverage. {source}

Well, I’ll post the review some other time.

Shopping for Discounted Natasha Sandals

Every woman needs a pair of high heels. It was been a long time since I wore high heeled footwear I think it was been ages, I favor sneakers and flats because they are more comfortable and easy to wear. My mother and sister brought home this beautiful and stylish sandals for me after finding that there is an available item in the shop where my mother was affiliated as a dealer. I have told them a few months ago after seeing this sandals in a brochure that it is beautiful and I would like to have a pair but since I can’t afford it I didn’t order and I can’t think of a place or occasion where to wear them.

Deangela Natasha Sandals

This sandals is a month to pay and it has dealer discount so I keep it instead of asking them to return it. I don’t know yet where to wear them but there’s only one place I know I could wear them, in the church. What’s funny I lost my balance while trying them at home so I wonder if I will fall in embarrassment if I wore them outside someday.

Shopping and Reselling Unused Items

When my sister took a government exam in the neighboring city almost a year ago, I went with them and we’ve went directly to Manila to wander around. I was too presumable then; I took government national papers, bought things and clothes to carry somewhere far but life isn’t always the way we planned it, so the lesson I learned in life not to get too excited and don’t expect too much it is either from yourself or from people around you.

When everything turned upside down, I hid all the things I collected I didn’t throw them like what I have said. Anyway, few of them were perfumes I just let them sit in one corner collecting dust, I already lost count how many of them I bought, I thought I bought more but when I checked them they’re just less than I thought they were be.

Jordache Women Perfume

Recently my mother dig them out from the dark corner, the perfumes remained there untouched by me since the day I hid them in, gladly I didn’t bought things for J yet like I have planned or else there are more things that will collect dust. I choose to resell the Jordache perfumes and make money out them. I have bought them on huge sale in a Japanese store in Manila for less than $2 and reselling them for less than $6. The Jordache perfume scent I have bought were No. 4, 5 and 7, they were the only available scent because the perfumes were almost sold out when we stumble at them in the shopping mall.

Meanwhile, the clothes I have bought I wore them to church every Sunday, I think that’s where the clothes destined to be worn, the clothes that was for different weather was kept in the very bottom of a huge box and some of the new pants given to me by my mother goes to reselling items too since they were too large for me to wear, I’ve lost a lot of weight without struggling on how to do it, yes no dieting needed. If you will asked me, I believed all those weights were transferred to my sister since she gained a lot of weight today, LOL.

Shopping: Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner on Sale

The other night we rush to Mercury Drug store in town to buy an ointment, the store will close at eight o’clock in the evening so we rush out before it closes. I was not feeling well due to colds. My back felt so cold and vulnerable, I think my immune system level went down after a few days of non-stop trip to town, doing some errands and attending some family matters.

Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner (Total Damage Care 10)

Since we are acquainted with the cashier, she informed us about their sale and even bringing us to the aisle.  Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner (Total Damage Care 10) is on 50% sale, there are only four bottles of them so I took them all to the counter before someone could see them. The conditioner normally cost ₱157 per bottle but after the 50% off it only cost ₱78 per bottle, which is really a huge savings.  It is a way better than buying another conditioner on the same price, actually my mother wasn’t in favour of me buying the conditioners she blurted out what would I do with them when I still have two new conditioners at home.

Well, there is a huge savings on them that’s why I took them and I maybe could display them to the beauty products we’re selling at home while they are not going to be use yet, who knows someone will buy them and then I could get 50% profit from them, isn’t it?

Retail Price: ₱157.00/180 ml
Sale Price: ₱78.00/180 ml
Savings: ₱79.00/180 ml

Home-Based Business: Buying and Selling

Buy and sell business is profitable if you have loyal customers who know how to pay without giving you a severe headache when their due date for payment came.

When the internet connection is good, browsing on shopping portals online became my habit since the products were loaded immediately.  A week ago, while looking for dresses I have found a sale on clothing and  I have informed my mother about it, and I was told if I have budget for it I could buy few and we could sell them in higher price. So I have ordered 8 short dresses to start with, when they arrived the other day, my mother and sister brought them to prospected client, three of the dresses where immediately taken and another one were taken separately so there is still four dresses in our care, hopefully we could sell them too.

F.101 Short Dresses

The dresses were not bought as cash by the people who took them; they are one month to pay so I have to wait a month before I could get the payments. I have been planning to do buy and sell business when I have enough capital to start with it because I cannot forever depend on my father’s care since working online isn’t good anymore, lots of bloggers copied me too for being a link broker so the trade is really slow.

My mother suggested that buying and selling appliances, gadgets and other electronic devices will be profitable since most consumers wanted to own this things, but I need ample amount of money to start on that trade, all I can do right now is to sell few dresses in affordable amount and hopefully it works well without being copied by our neighbors.

Well, maybe if I got lucky and won in a lottery I will be able to build a clothes and beauty products shop in front of our house, since my Uncle has no plan yet to use his lot.

Shopping Online with Huge Discount at Zalora PH

Most of my life, I have been wearing jeans, shirts and rubber shoes so when people see wearing a skirt or dress they’re always surprised and encouraged me to wear this type of clothes more often. I’ve only wore skirts or dresses on special occasions, like graduation.

On my birthday less than a month ago a shopping portal send a special code so I can treat myself for something pretty. I never tried shopping at ZALORA PH yet, I only registered on this site because of curiosity and the desire to browse around the beautiful dresses displayed on their website. Well, by browsing that day I found dresses that were on sale, chic and sassy, with the voucher code given to me they have an extra discount and another extra 7% discount if a MasterCard was used, so I did shop using my card. The next day, I received a call for verification of the card I have used, I was so anxious when an unknown caller was looking for me.

Zalora PH Dresses

Anyway, I have received the clothes after few days. I was a bit disappointed when I saw them because they look too small for me, but when I tried them they fit perfectly. The black dress  (Aleena Lace on Waist Printed Dress) which I preferred so much ended up to my sister because it doesn’t look right on me since I am long legged making it too short for my body. The three other clothes fits perfectly, my mother and sister says I should wear clothes that are tight hugging to my body because those are the type of clothes that will look good on me.

Zalora PH Dresses

My sister and I have been planning to do photo-shoots wearing the dresses but we always don’t have a time to do it.

Anyway, if you are looking for beautiful dresses to wear on any occasion or on Christmas day shop now at http://www.zalora.com.ph and use this code ZBAPQWVG upon checkout no minimum purchased to use this discount code.

Shopping for Elegant yet Affordable Pair of Earrings Online

Shopping is very therapeutic for me, it surely brought superficial happiness.  It helps me to forget things and be happy even just for a moment.

Unlike most women, shopping for jewelries doesn’t really attract me because I don’t really wear such things aside from pair of pearl earrings and my wedding ring. I have been wearing pearl earrings for years, and the pair of earrings I am currently wearing was bought cheap on the street. I have thought I need a change of fashion so when I saw elegant yet affordable earrings online I immediately added it on my shopping cart. I need to reach a specific amount so I could use a voucher for discount and adding the pair of earrings in my shopping cart made it possible, so if I sum it I got the earrings for free.

Jewelmine Phoebe 29a Cubic Zircon Earrings

The earring is a pair of Jewelmine Phoebe 29a Cubic Zircon, yes it is not a gold earring where you can sell or pawned for higher price. It was mainly for fashion and accessories that you can wear daily or to pair on your favorite outfit of the day.  It cost Php299.00 ($6.65) but with the use of coupon voucher I got it for Php263.12 ($5.84). The voucher was split on to other items in my cart so the discount for the pair of earrings was not really huge.

Jewelmine Phoebe 29a Cubic Zircon Earrings

Jewelmine Phoebe 29a Cubic Zircon earrings is classy and elegant; it somehow looks like the pair of earrings from Avon that my mother gave to me a year ago which until now is only sitting in the fancy jewelry box.  Of course, I didn’t start wearing too the earrings I just recently bought, I just admire its beauty while sitting in the jewelry box that comes with it.

Secretly for over a decade I have been wishing to receive jewelries made of my birth stone but somehow nobody thought of it. I was planning to buy one for myself since they were just affordable accessories but when I have read that jewelries made of birth stone are best to receive as a gift it stops me. Now, I am wondering who will be the thoughtful one to wrap it for me.  LOL

Well, it is going to be my birthday in few weeks. My mother reminded me of it and I just shrugged it off and told her it is not a happy one, probably the saddest in my almost three decades of existence. 🙁
