Ferretti Shoe Haul

Next to diamonds, a pair of shoes can easily be a woman's best friend.

Ferretti was generous enough to give 3000php worth of gift certificates to every blogger who walked for the brand during the Glorietta Vibe Fashion Show.

I had a hard time choosing as there were a lot of nice pairs to choose from. I limited my search into high-heels because I need extra elevation with my 5'2'' height. Haha! I also have to consider the comfort and the design because I want something that I can easily pair up with any outfit.

The pictures above were some of my choices. I was tempted to get the mustard satchel because it looks so classy! After several minutes of contemplating, I ended up with...


The first two pairs from the left were my picks. I got the neon pomelo wedges during the Glorietta Vibe Fashion Show.

Stacey, 1199php - The color of these wedges is very striking and unique. It can brighten up any boring outfit! I walked with this for several hours during the Glorietta Vibe Fashion Show and I did not experience any discomfort at all.

Merida, 1499php - The woven details caught my eye instantly. I just had to get this because it is very lightweight and comfy! I can easily wear this with any outfit because of the color and design. This is my favorite among the three pairs because it gives me just the right amount of elevation without any pain or discomfort at all. I've worn this several times already!

1499php - If I am not mistaken, this pair is 5 inch high. But since these are platform heels, walking was not that difficult. I was a bit uneasy the first time I walked with it but I got used to it as the day went by. discomfort was minimal and manageable. I love the design of this pair - simple and sexy!

I love every pair I got from Ferretti. I never expected to find comfort and ease from high-heeled shoes! Thank you so much Ferretti!

When I need extra confidence boost, I go grab a pair of high heels. What is your confident booster? Flats or high-heels? Let me hear your thoughts by commenting below!

I wish I have more time for blogging. I really miss reading blog posts, creating makeup looks and doing reviews!

Goodnight and God bless!

Review: WetnWild Megalast Lipstick in Dollhouse Pink & Just Peachy

I fell in love with the vibrancy and pigmentation the first time I tried WetnWild Megalast lipsticks. Color payoff is superb! I didn't let the opportunity pass when my sister's friend went to US for a visit. WnW lipsticks here in the Philippines are being sold for 299php (7.5 USD) at leading malls when they're only 100php (1.99 USD) in the US. I got these two for only 200php. Big savings! 

I had a difficult time choosing what colors to buy because there is a wide variety to choose from. I ended up getting Just Peachy and Dollhouse Pink. I don't have any color similar to these two from my lipstick collection yet.

Label: Have you noticed the improvement? I did! The earlier batches of WnW Megalast lipsticks only have number codes as labels. Finally, they have added the names at the bottom as well. No need to memorize numbers anymore!

Packaging: The cheap, not so sturdy packaging is the only thing I don't like about the lipstick. It has a clear cap that would not lock securely. Also, the lipstick bullet is sticking out that is why it is tough to put the cap back on. You have to be extra cautious! You don't want to ruin your lipstick, do you? 

I think the lipstick bullet is a bit longer than usual lipsticks. Impressive!

Stoplight Red, Dollhouse Pink, Just Peachy, Think Pink
Remember Stoplight Red and Think Pink? I already made a review about them here. They are sample sizes whereas Dollhouse Pink and Just Peachy are full-sized ones.

Just Peachy is the perfect peachy nude lipstick for me! Unlike other nude lipsticks which would not look good if not paired with smokey eyes, Just Peachy can be worn alone. If you want a nude lip color but hate looking washed out or sick, try this!

Dollhouse Pink is a cool-toned, Nicki-Minaj Pink that has purple undertones. It looks a bit purple in different lighting. I love how vibrant this lipstick is! I've read that it is a dupe for the famous Pink Nouveau of Mac.

Pigmentation, Formulation, Staying power:

Pigmentation is very good. A little goes a long way! However, the formula is a bit drying and can emphasize the lines of lips- the usual dilemma with matte lipsticks. Applying lip balm prior to lipstick application is recommended. Staying power is great at 4-5 hours without eating.

When worn

These lipsticks are great addition to my lipstick collection. I can't wait to get other colors!

What I like:

  • Superb pigmentation
  • Affordable price
  • Great staying power
  • Matte finish
  • Variety of colors available
What I don't like:
  • Packaging
  • Formulation is a bit drying
Despite the drying formulation and the cheap packaging, WetnWild Megalast lipsticks still belong to my list of favorites because the pigmentation is really, really good. I love how matte and vibrant it is!

Where to get:
299php at WetnWild Counters in SM Department Stores

Travel: Year-Ender Trip at Tagaytay

The holidays and my first week at work made it impossible for me to catch up with blogging. I'm happy to be finally writing again! Please bear with me as I try to adjust with my new responsibilities. I only have the weekend to blog now, must use my time well! 

Just before the year 2012 ended, our family stayed over at Tagaytay to bond, relax and enjoy the holiday season. And this is what I will be sharing with you! We started the trip with an ocular at CCT Tagaytay, a great venue for conference, retreat or team-building activities. The dormitories reminded me a lot of the ones at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.

We spent the afternoon enjoying the majestic view of Taal Lake and the breeze of the cool wind!

With little sister, and mom

The tripod I bought from CD-R King for only 250php came in handy for family pictures. Yes, 250php only!

Outfit of the day includes a corset from Chicadora, thrifted blazer and jejejeggings!

More pictures

Dinner time! We all agreed to have dinner at Mile Hi.

Burger, Pasta, Steak. What else do you expect from a diner? Yum yum!


We were all satisfied with our orders. Food is fairly priced at 150-300php. I definitely enjoyed my Mozarella-stuffed burger!

I am not a big fan of Starbucks but the one in Tagaytay is easily one of the nicest Starbucks I've visited. The second floor is an open area that is strategically situated for people to get a nice view of Taal. The best time to visit is night time because you'll make the most out of the cool temperature. Nothing beats a hot cup of coffee in a cold place. Relaxing!

Before finally reaching Manila, we stopped over for a late lunch at Solenad 2, Nuvali. There were several food stalls there, the setup was Mercato-like.

Great food for very affordable prices! I had isaw and Ilocos empanada. Yum yum!

Tagaytay will always be one of my favorite places. It's the nearest and easiest escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Spending time with family is also a great way to end and start a new year.
