It’s a funky twist to the quaint, so-last-season oxford heels in shades of brown. I immediately fell in love with this pair the moment I laid my eyes upon it. I’m digging the vintage feel of these leather shoes. In addition, the stacked heels will help me keep from falling, since I’m not a “high-heel” person. :p

Sale Price: around 2,000 Php (originally 4,000+ Php)

Something New: Murad Acne Complex Kit

Murad Acne Complex Kit

Here’s an interesting skincare entry to start our tropical summer right!

The surging temperature has been bothering me recently, aggravated by the killer El Niño phenomenon. Now, I’m missing the cool, refreshing months brought by the holiday season, as I’m painstakingly bracing the crazy heat both indoors and outdoors—not to mention, I’m amid doing yoga which requires me to stay in a heated room for about a couple of hours!

The sudden temperature change is taking quite a toll on my skin. I’ve been experiencing breakouts especially on my chest and back since the heat starts rolling in. Now, even my face is kind of breaking out, which is something that I really, really don’t want to happen ever again!

This provokes me to grab a tried-and-tested acne regimen to answer my zit woes. Murad Acne Complex Kit has been proven by some friends of mine that it really works. Well, it could have worked on those who mainly have mild to moderate acne. So, I did not hesitate to grab a starter kit in pronto and give it a try, hoping that this will be perfect for my current skin condition. Moreover, it claims to clear skin in just 4 weeks—guaranteed!

Murad Acne Complex Kit is a three-step regimen (Cleanse-Treat-Hydrate) that must be regularly used twice a day. The set includes:

Murad Acne Complex Kit

Murad Acne Complex Kit – (L-R) Murad Clarifying Cleanser, Murad Exfoliating Acne Treatment Gel, Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion and Murad Acne Spot Treatment


Murad Clarifying Cleanser is an antibacterial gel cleanser that promises to kill 99.9% of surface bacteria without causing skin irritation.


Murad Exfoliating Acne Treatment Gel is a gel-like serum that helps heal existing blemishes whilst preventing new ones from forming. It penetrates deep down into the pores, and eliminates skin cell-buildup.


Murad Skin Perfecting Lotion is an oil-free moisturizer that keeps your skin well hydrated, as well as calms skin’s redness and irritation sans clogging your pores.

Plus, I also got Murad Acne Spot Treatment that stops a zit from brewing like crazy, while reducing redness and irritation. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the Clarifying Mask, though you may get one should you order directly from their website.

I’ve been religiously using the complete set for three days in a row. So far, I haven’t noticed any adverse reactions, such as purging, caused by these products. I’m happy, on the other hand, as my skin momentarily stops breaking out even more! I still got around 27 days left, so let’s see how it is going to perform after a month!

Something New: Chic New Wireless Mobile Broadband from Globe.

Globe Tattoo Mobile Broadband Femmes Edition

I just lost my quaint mobile broadband dongle recently, and so I’m in the verge of what I call as “emergency shopping” for a brand new mobile broadband and in lieu of the old one.

I must say I’m not much of a mobile broadband fan, coz they are not that 100% reliable—especially at home where the mobile broadband connection is just so darn slow. But since I bring along my laptop everywhere with me most of the time for surf ‘n work, this little piece of gadgetry really does a lot of help in keeping me stay connected.

I got one from the same provider, Globe Telecom, after finding out that its competitors were wayyy slower. Good thing, however, is that they have these brand new chic designs to choose from, so called the Globe Tattoo Femmes Edition. Here’s what I got:

Globe Tattoo Mobile Broadband Femmes Edition in Green

Globe Tattoo Femmes Edition in Mint Green (the pink one’s unavailable when I bought it)

It still bears the same pocket-sized body (comparable to the size of the lipstick). It also doubles as a Micro SD card reader. Unlike my old HUAWEI device, this ZTE one doesn’t have an adapter for external antenna, which is something that I might probably need particularly should I access the Internet at home where the signal’s kind of low.

Anyhoos, I really love the cool colors and girly chic design, something that my old one totally lacks!

Price: Php 895 (used to be about Php 1,900)
