Hi.. Mungkin Engkau tak pernah tahu apa yang kutulis disini
Yang kadang tak tereja di tiap syairnya
Yang tak pernah selesai kuuntai untukmu
Dan tak tak pernah lelah kurangkai di tiap aksaranya
Sampai kata yang kupintal menjadikan namamu

Izinkan aku cintaimu walau dalam goresan pena
Ku ingin mencintaimu layaknya mentari
Bergulir sempurna dari kanan ke kiri
Ku ingin mencintaimu seperti udara
Yang tak terlihat namun bisa kau rasa

Mungkin bagimu rinduku tak kasat mata
Rindu yang tak terbaca tak kau pahami maknanya
Biarkan ku simpan dan kurajut dalam hati

Pada sedikit kisah mu yang pernah kau bagi
Pada sekeping hatimu yang rela kutumbuhi bunga

Namamu yang selalu menggetarkan kepingan hatiku..



Clean Perfume

I just had to steal my former office M-W-F’s signature scent. I wasn’t really adventurous with CLEAN variants, as I already love the original one. But, hers also caught my heart’s, or rather, my nose’s desire.

CLEAN Eau de Parfum is a light, breezy concoction of various fruity-floral notes namely litsea cubeba, orange, sweet lime canada goose down women https://www.ogrelarp.com/ canada goose 2015 collection, pink grapefruit, passion lily, rose geranium, and white musk. What I love about it is that it stays and lingers for a while without being overpowering. To me it’s a perfect scent for the young and feminine, but that does not exclude the “young at heart”. 😛

A friend of mine has been a fan of the Shower Fresh variant. One time, I asked for a spritz for some reason I couldn’t remember. She took a bottle from her purse, and handed over to me. To my surprise, it’s CLEAN, only tinged in a shade of blue (or cerulean). I took a whiff,  immediately loved it, and spritzed it onto my pulse points.

CLEAN Shower Fresh is a mixture of lemon, mandarin, orange, jasmine, lily of the valley, orange blossom, sheer woods and musk. It has a distinct floral-fruity scent with a hint of musk as base notes. The scent wears off easily, unlike the original variant. Nonetheless, I still love it, being the less feminine version of the former. Think of Davidoff’s Cool Water or D&G Light Blue. 🙂

I’m for fresh-from-the-shower scents, without being too musky, floral or woody. CLEAN has been one of my few favourites, along with Lanvin Eclat d’Arpege. I was happy to score a couple on sale; I got each for 50% off! Oh yes, I was in olfactory heaven.

Price: Php 1,800/ $38 for a 30 ml (1 oz) bottle, but I got them at Php 900 each. 😀

Me and a Couple of Smashbox Tokidokis

It’s been a couple of months or so, and I remember creating a draft sometime during my idle months about something old and something new.

I finally resolved into posting something in this blog, and prolly my home blog. Been almost two weeks since I moved out from the Philippines to another Asian country…mainly for work.

Anyway, here’s the story of something old.

A few years ago, I was excited to own a Smashbox Tokidoki palette. You know how I love cute packaging, non-realistic doodles and Japanese.

I got Celebrita, which has a berry, a plum and two neutral (b/w) shades.

The plum and white colours give off a subtle lustre, whilst the the berry and grey-black colours have a more defined shimmer (but not way too glittery). I often use the neutrals, of course, especially the white one for highlighting. The colour payoff is more of satiny, especially for the grey-black one.I remember using it during Levi’s Roadwear Party.

Given that it was just launched in the Philippines canada goose down retail locations https://www.canadagoosejacketsforcheap.com Canada Goose vest sale shop, the price was quite steep. I believe I got it for no less than Php 2,000.

…and now, for something new.

A few months ago, amidst defying boredom, I found myself browsing eBay listings and stumbled upon the other Smashbox Tokidoki palette in Modella up for bids. I didn’t think twice and bade on it. Eventually, I won it along with 2 other palettes from Milani. I was a happy camper indeed!

Modella’s cutesy packaging

The colours weren’t interesting at first sight, maybe because I’m biased to girly pink and plums :-P. Having swiped them onto my skin (as swatches), I took that impression back and started to appreciate them. 🙂 (more…)
