I Love Hershey Reeses!


I hope this photo shows up right away. Yesterday, finally gave in and satisfied my curiosity. A half gallon, not a pint just in case I like it. Verdict : I'm getting a gallon next time! Two thumbs up! Sent from my BlackBerry® wireless handheld

Today is Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday (or Passion Sunday to others) signals the official start of the Holy Week. My eldest once asked me, "Mom, why do we buy those leafy things and wave them in church then put them up on the window at home?". On Palm Sunday, Jesus made his entrance into Jerusalem and the crowd greeted him by waving palm branches and laying them on the ground as he entered. This was a time of celebration for Jerusalem, but the beginning of Jesus' painful journey, which ends in his crucifixion.

Have a peaceful and safe Holy Week, everyone.

Sephora Cream Lip Stains --- my new loves!

While in Singapore, I made sure to include Sephora in our itinerary. While the boys and the rest of the family (tired from all the walking) decided to sit down and wait, Anissa and I together with my 3 nieces headed off on a serious beauty hunt!

After trying on so many lipstick/lipgloss samples, I went home with Sephora's Cream Lip Stains in Always Red and Forever Fuschia. I loved these shades so much that even when I had no time to run back to the store, I asked a good friend to get me more.

Here I am wearing Always Red

This one's Forever Fuschia
(due to the natural lighting, you really don't see its full "standout" effect in this photo)

My ratings:

Ease of application - a perfect 10
Pigmentation - highly pigmented
Staying power - 9/10

All in all, this is so worth it for the price!

They each cost SGD 22.00 or about USD 12.00 in the Sephora website

Is Sephora ever coming to Manila? I wonder...
