Do miracles really happen? I hope so...

I've always been conscious about the way I look but you can never really force me into splurging on costly clothes, beauty products and the likes. I can't even imagine myself getting a haircut for more than Php150 or around USd4, haha. I have never been to a spa either- much as I would love to, the cost of it hampers me. But then as you age, your whole perspective in life also changes..not that I'm ready to splurge right on - not yet. I have always had problems with my skin - especially on my face - since I have sensitive skin. Now that I'm aging - I believe being 30 is =) - I really do need some reinforcements. I've always wanted to buy Pond's Age Miracle Cream but again, it costs a lot. Yesterday, I finally had the courage to shell out SR45 or approximately Php500 for a 50g cream. I felt really sad upon leaving the store because i could have bought so many stuff with 45 saudi riyals. I tried the product today and I couldn't contain my excitement I e-mailed my husband in the office right away..it really is different! From the first rub down to how my face feels and looks after, it definitely is worth the price..I'm more excited to see the result after a week or so..I hope my skin will look radiant by then (fingers crossed =0 )

P.S. if it works well i'm definitely gonna invest in other Pond's Age Miracle products, yey!!!

sweet escape

I wish when i'm depressed I could say I don't have the appetitie to eat because that is so not the case with me..my appetite doesn't get affected by how I feel.
Today i feel super sleepy..i don't know why..i've had a good amount of sleep last night though..so I was wondering why i keep on hitting the sack almost the whole day today.. i must have slipped in slumberland around three to four times.
What is so unusual today that I feel so lazy and heavy? Then it hit me..earlier in the day I received an email about our ringnecks back in the Philippines. They flew away because their nest was somehow rotten because of the constant rain. I was sad this morning.. that's it! That's the reason why i kept on sleeping.
I realized that my coping mechanism to sadness is 'sleep' - i can recall so many instances wherein i just sleep and sleep after i cry so hard..it's as if the pain goes away atleast temporarily..
so what about you? what is your escape from sadness? =)

men's shirt

Whenever I go out, I usually feel excited because I love dressing up or dressing down. I usually decide on what to wear a day before and sometimes I have my 'pre-wear' (I fit in my clothes before i actually wear them for an event or an occassion -don't know if there's a right term for that.

Most of my clothes were left in the Philippines since I only stay here every other six months. With limited clothes, I usually become bored with my outfits..that's when I had the idea of transforming my husband's old clothes into mine.

The first pic shows my husband's short-sleeved polo turned into a sleeveless shirtdress. I wore it with a high-waisted shorts (formerly my husband's black long pants).

The second pic also shows the shirtdress, i even made the cut-out sleeves into a belt, haha.

I'm enjoying this project so much that my husband fears of losing all his clothes to mine, lol...

who wants milk?

I first encountered Laban last year when we went grocery shopping and picked up a gallon of fresh milk. The following day, I poured some milk in a glass only to find out it tastes spoiled. I asked my husband that we should return or exchange the gallon for a new one because it's already expired. Upon getting his hand on the gallon, he told me there's nothing wrong with it except that it's not the regular fresh milk i picked up but Laban. Fresh laban is 100% full fat pure cow's milk. But whatever it is, i don't care because I don't like it...

Then last week we attended a simple luncheon party and a few friends there were talking about how good their skin look and how fit their bodies are. Then the word laban popped out! Curious, I began to ask questions. They said laban is good for those with irregular bowel movement (like me!), those with oily skin (like me, again!), and those who want to lose wait and maintain it (omg, me again!!!). They also said get i'd get used to its taste once I become a regular drinker.

So, being determined to reap the benefits of my once dreaded milk, I decided to give it a try..hmmm, come to think of it, it doesn't taste that bad and I can even compare it with a yogurt, haha..well, let's see how long i can keep it up! =) btw, there are different brands of laban here in Riyadh, KSA. I got the Almarai one. I'm not sure though if we have local brands in the Philippines or even imported ones..
