21st Birthday Haul and Gifts!!!

For my birthdays, I usually receive gifts in the form of money from my parents & relatives. I guess the reason why they give me cash instead of actual gifts is that they want me to be able to buy what I really want.

If you guys have been visiting this blog for sometime now, you know that I am an avid reader, so of course books was the first thing on my wish list.

I got a total of four novels, all of which were either horror or suspense/thriller. I've already read 3 out of 4 and I have to say that these are all good reads! The first book I read was Slasher Girls & Monster Boys. This has 14 short horror stories by different authors. After that, I read Cradle and All by James Patterson. I don't want to spoil the story but just to give you guys an idea, the plot is about two virgins getting pregnant, one with the son of God and the other with the son of Satan. Interesting, isn't it? I actually just finished reading The Outliers by Kimberly McCreight and the storyline has an unexpected plot twist! I am now on my 4th book, The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas.

I got these beautiful pair of beige oxfords from Forever 21. They also come in brown, black and oxblood. 

My mom and I went to SM Department store to buy my grandmother's birthday present and I saw this cute workout top & bottom which came in the colors gray and black. Since I already had a black workout set I decided to pick the gray one. That's me wearing it during my high school's family day (and yes I totally had to pose like a gangsta').

Okay, so I've been obsessing over Greyson Chance since he came out with new music and I just knew that I had to get my hands on his latest EP. I bought the Somewhere Over My Head EP and have since then been playing it non stop.

If you guys don't know I am a serious anglomaniac. I love all things British which is why I couldn't resist getting myself a pair of socks with the British flag on it.

I've had my eyes set on this Mango Quilted Bowling Bag since the first time I saw it and luckily, it was still in store so I bought the brown one because I realized that I don't have a brown bag in my collection. This also comes in black, gray and oxblood.

I'm not a cat person but I absolutely love these pair of socks!

The last two items that I got is the cream top and rust colored shorts that I'm wearing in the picture above. The top came from The Pad which is an online store, while the shorts are from Forever 21, and guess what? I got them on sale for half the price! Such a steal! I just love the embroidered details on the sides.

These were gifted to me. I enjoyed eating the gummy candy and chocolate since I have a sweet tooth and can't get enough of sweets.

Snoe Glam Jam Vitamin-Enriched Lip & Cheek Stain in Scarlet Review

After trying Snoe's Lippy Cheeky (you can read my full review here) and getting disappointed I decided to give their lip and cheek tints another try by purchasing their Glam Jam in the shade Scarlet.

Glam Jam Vitamin-Enriched Lip & Cheek Stain Scarlet
 Snoe Glam Jam Vitamin-Enriched Lip & Cheek Stain in Scarlet
20oz / 5.75ml
(P 159)

What it claims:


Smile! Apply onto the apples of your cheeks. Blend quickly and thoroughly with fingertips. Apply on lips and blend. Repeat for a deeper color ‘pop’.

Warnings: For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes--should contact occur, flush thoroughly with water. Discontinue use if rashes or irritation appear. Keep out of reach of children. If ingested, get medical help or contact a poison control center immediately. 


Sadly, this did not do any better than Snoe's Lippy Cheeky. Although I really like the red shade of this lip and cheek stain, I am quite saddened by the fact that it doesn't stay put on either my cheeks or my lips. In fact it stains my fingers really bad and it can't be removed by alcohol or wipes. The color also settles in the middle of my bottom lip which looks very weird and unpleasant to look at. This product was a miss for me. I hope Snoe will create a better formulation for their lip and cheek stains in the future.


Snoe Lippy Cheeky Antioxidant Lip and Cheek Stain in Maraschino Review

Lately, I've been very fond of lip and cheek tints. These babies double as a blush and a lippie! I decided to try Snoe's Lippy Cheeky Antioxidant Lip and Cheek Stain in the shade Maraschino.

Lippy Cheeky Antioxidant Lip and Cheek Stain with Pomegranate + Acerola Cherry + Acai Berry Maraschino
 Snoe Lippy Cheeky Antioxidant Lip and Cheek Stain in Maraschino
 .338 floz net wt.10ml 
(P 499)

What it claims:


Snoe Lippy Cheeky Anti-Oxidant Lip & Cheek Stain are kiss-proof, see-through color for lips & cheeks that lasts for hours. It’s the sexiest flush you can get from a bottle! Now you can have appealing and youthful flushed cheeks and rosy lips! It will create a perpetual glow from within with its super antioxidant ingredients!
Pomegranate- antioxidant, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties and ability to encourage radiant skin
Acerola Cherry- contains the highest form of Vitamin C that can easily be absorbed by the body. It has a high content of polyphenols, some of which are unique to this particular fruit.
Acai Berry- Most powerful and nutritious fruit in the world. It contains the highest level of antioxidants, higher than any fruit


Use your fingertips or a makeup sponge and smile as you quickly blend the color onto the apples of your cheeks. Apply on lips & blend. For deeper color, repeat. 

Ingredients List

Aqua (Water), GlycerylPolymethacrytate& Propylene Glycol & Propyl Paraben& Methyl Paraben, Butylene Glycol, Malpighiaglabfa (Acerola) Fruit Extract, PunicaGranatum (Pomegranate) Seed Extract, EuterpeOleracea (Acai Berry) Fruit Extract, CI 45430, CI 17200, CI 19140, CI 420901, Fragrance

Featured Ingredient

Acai Berry  

Acai Berry is a natural product and improves the body’s ability to heal itself by removing harmful free radicals in the body. In addition to antioxidants, acai supplements contain phytonutrients and vitamins for proper skin regeneration. It is the most powerful and nutritious fruit in the world. It contains the highest level of antioxidants, higher than any fruit.


I really love the pinkish red tint of this product. The packaging is uber cute and the applicator is pretty unique yet functional. Unfortunately, that sums up what I like about this lip and cheek stain. I wanted to love this product so much but it just failed to perform. Once applied to both my cheeks and lips it doesn't really last that long. It fades within an hour or so which is very disappointing considering the color pay off is really nice. It gives off a sheer natural looking flush of pink that is buildable if you want a bolder and brighter hue. I won't throw it away 'cause I payed a hefty amount for this lip and cheek tint but I will probably just use this if I'm going for a quick stop somewhere.

Snoe Magic Beso Balm Color Changing Lip Treatment Review

Before I start my review on Snoe Magic Beso Balm Color Changing Lip Treatment let me just say that my lips are sahara desert dry. I don't know why but that is basically the reason why I prefer using tinted lipbalms for daily use rather than lipsticks.

I've been using this product for quite some time now. Snoe Magic Beso Balm Color Changing Lip Treatment is a staple in my make-up kit. Why? Well I love how this is a lip balm and a color changing lip treatment rolled into one magical tube! As I've said I have really dry lips that need extra moisturizing products for everyday use and Snoe's Magic Beso Balm is my lippie of choice! It gives my lips that natural flush of pink without sacrificing the state of my puckers. The result? 'Just bitten' looking lips with a punch of moisture! I definitely recommend this to girls who have sensitive/dry lips or for those of you who simply want to give your puckers a break from lipsticks. This is the perfect alternative!
