Breakfast at Kitchen1B: A Wholesome Alternative

I love having a hearty breakfast. When I was still working in the corporate world, breakfast is something I take for granted. It seems impossible for me to grab a bite before heading to office. I mean, I’d rather spend the time sleeping than eating. LoL. I’m sure you guys feel the same.

So, anyway, now that I basically have all the time in the world to control–plus, thanks to technology, I can just multi-task anywhere–I really love it when I get to have a nice breakfast, especially if it’s something that’s truly good for the body like what my beau and I had at Kitchen 1B.

Long-awaited ME-Time at Ecru Nail Spa

My hands have been full lately since I’ve enrolled in Certified Digital Marketing Acceleration Program last Sept 26 (I will share this with you next week).

Product Review: Biore Micellar Cleansing Water

When I was still working at Avon, I never understood why the Australian market would prefer to have a non-waterproof mascara in their portfolio over a waterproof one. I would always ask “why wouldn’t you rather have waterproof?” because, for me, I hate the fact that most waterproof mascaras in the Philippines aren’t really waterproof.

And so I’d always have my trusty Maybelline makeup remover to do its thing after I’ve enjoyed an entire day of smudge-free eyes. Sadly, I run out of it last week and boy it was such a b*tch to take off this waterproof mascara from my lashes. It stuck there even after washing my face 5x–and yes, that’s 30 splashes of water each! That’s when I fully understood ANZ’s issue with waterproof mascaras. -_-

So, yeah, I was stuck with the mascara for 2 days until I was able to go out and buy myself a new makeup remover. Since I’m out to try a new one, I saw this pretty bottle of Biore Micellar Cleansing Water at Watson’s and thought of giving it a try.
