My Favorite Things: 2nd Week of July
I can’t believe it’s already nearly the middle of July. Goodness. Here are some of my current favorite things:
Left to right: sweet and spicy tamarind, Teen Vogue with Elle Fanning on the cover, my fave lip combo, Kapitan Sino by Bob Ong
I still love Teen Vogue even though I’m obviously no longer a teen—it’s pretty to look at and a light read. But I’m a cheapskate so I buy the issues late. Hehe. Here’s the May Elle Fanning cover. Wow, she’s so cute and has such a fun, adorable, age-appropriate style.
My fail-safe lip combo is Fashion 21 Little Mermaid Lipstick + Lumene Soft Papaya Lipgloss. The gloss tones down the brightness of the Little Mermaid Lipstick and the two colors create a soft, nakakabatang pink.
Sweet and spicy tamarind, pasalubong from Bangkok. I’m addicted to this! My sister gave me a pack of it some weeks ago and when my husband’s mom, dad, and sisters went there later on, this is what I requested so now I have a precious stash (thank you!).
Kapitan Sino by Bob Ong isn’t on my list of favorite books, but it’s a lifesaver because it’s a new read that I happened to swipe from my sister’s bookshelf and it’s been keeping me from getting bored while lining up at NSO, NBI, the city hall, and tomorrow, at DFA for our passport applications! I’m a little worried that I don’t have enough valid IDs, but I’ll just have to see. I lost my old, now expired passport long ago and have to get a new one for a family trip we’re planning.
Something I’ve been obsessing about lately is the MAC Heavenly Creature Collection. I’m so, so excited for this collection. I have no idea when it’ll hit local stores, but I’ve already preordered a few items. I cant get my hands on them soon enough!
