Hi cupcakes! :) To keep you updated about the daily happenings in my life, I have decided that I will blog about the things/persons that highlighted my week. I will post my highlights of the week posts every monday. So for this week, here are the persons and things that kept me busy and my heart happy.

1. Visitor for a day- Last December 7, I met up with my bestfriends danie and nozomi. I got the chance to visit my alma mater again and I can't wait to be back in school! A lot of things have changed. The new building is superb and it was so luxurious! Danie and I went to starbucks to have some coffee. Star tagged along and then we had lunch with nozomi and star at Papa Johns. Loved the feeling when I rode the LRT again! 

2. Makeup Artist Wanna Be- Last December 10, my mom told me to do her makeup because she will be a ninang to a wedding. So I gladly did her hair and make-up and I must say that I enjoyed the experience! And she liked it! She gave me a talent fee. I'm so happy because I just realized that one of my frustrations is to be a makeup artist. 

3. New found love- My mom bought these home because it was a client's Christmas gift to them. I absolutely love them! This biscuit came all the way from Malaysia. I thought it was just one of the commercialized biscuits that are being sold locally but I was wrong! The biscuit itself tastes a little salty but with the chocolate, it tasted heavenly! I hope this certain brand of biscuit is being sold here in our country.

4. 12 days of Christmas- Know the song "12 days of Christmas"? Well, since it's my daughter's first Christmas, I want her to experience the 12 days of Christmas by giving her 12 gifts! I just want her first Christmas to be as memorable as possible. This is my first gift for her.

4. Movie Date- My husband treated me yesterday to the movie house and we watched breaking dawn! (at last!). I was glad that I was able to fought the urge to cry on the wedding scene! I can definitely relate to it. It was definitely a date because he also treated me to lunch and then we canvassed for the things that we would buy for out Christmas Shopping.

5. Peppermint Mocha- I am now starting to collect stickers for the 2012 planner! I chose option 1 because I love the holiday drinks! Especially the peppermint mocha! Whether hot or iced, it is indeed my favorite! 14 more stickers to go!

6. On the 2nd and 3rd Day of Christmas- I just bought my 2nd and 3rd gift for cara. I also bought some gift cards! All disney princesses.I want it to be my daughter's collection. 9 gifts to buy!

That's it for the highlights of my week! How about you? What did you do last week? What made your day and who did you spend it with? Advance Happy Holidays!

Hi there! It's been a long time since my last blog. Been busy with wifely and motherly duties and work. As you all know, I am currently working as a fashion article writer. I've got loads of products to blog about and I promise to blog everyday starting today. So for my comeback, I'm going to review my favorite lipstick which is MAC in Jubilee.

I bought this lipstick at Trinoma. Yes, MAC already has an outlet in Trinoma and it is right beside Clinique's.  It was actually an impulsive buy. I am an impulsive shopper and I must get what I want even if it will drain my money and savings. Haha.

It is priced at 1,000PHP. Take note that they are way overpriced here in the Philippines. If you buy this from the states, it will cost you 800-900PHP only. It is indeed too costly and pricey for a medium sized lipstick.

This is my 1st ever MAC product and I must say that I did got my money's worth! I really love the sleek and classy packaging. Very simple but it definitely has a lasting impact. I love the slight glimmer and shimmer on the tube.

Since  I am a morena or medium skinned woman, I prefer nudes and neutrals when it comes to lip shades. I don't like striking hues of red and pink. I told the sales lady to recommend a good neutral shade that would suit my skin tone, and she introduced me to MAC LUSTRE LIPSTICK'S JUBILEE.

I tried it on and I immediately loved the color. It looks nude indeed! I also don't like shimmers in my lipstick so I prefer simple looking shades and finish.


1. It has a nice packaging.
2. Glides smoothly into your lips.
3. It has that soft and smooth finish.
4. Will last you long but it depends on your usage.
5. There are a wide range and variety of colors.
6. Has a nice finish.


1. It has a weird smell.
2. Too pricey and expensive.
3. Doesn't last for long hours so you will need to reapply it.
4. Will look dry on your lips if you don't apply lip balm before putting it.
5. Fades easily.
6. The smell of the lipstick lingers in your mouth that you can actually taste it.

This is the shade of JUBILEE when swatched on a medium skin tone. 

Of course I will repurchase again from MAC, but I would also love to try ALL of their products. I am a sucker for MAC products but I do believe that I need to save tons of money if I want to have them all. Haha. Till my next post cupcakes! <3
