Review: Keratin Lash Lift at Edwin Lisa Eyebrow Embroidery – SM Manila

Last June 12th, I accompanied my sister Jodie to Edwin Lisa Eyebrow Embroidery at SM Manila for a beauty procedure. She specifically wanted to get Keratin Lash Lift that promises to give her dull eye lashes a polished look. It was a holiday (read: Philippine Independence Day) and she felt it was the perfect day to take control of her eye lash situation. Haha. The results of the treatment were amazing! She went home a very satisfied customer and looked forward to going to work the next day. And what do you know! She received lots of compliments from her officemates (and even clients!) at the bank because it looked like she woke up with camera-ready eye lashes!

Weekend Story: Rainy Weekend in Bacoor

Because June has officially started, rains have become a regular thing in this side of the world. The hubby and I drove to Bacoor last Friday night and spent the weekend at home. We only went out to buy some groceries and after that, enjoyed the company of each other inside the four corners of our humble abode. My PILs joined us on Saturday and we all went back to Manila on Sunday night. It was quite relaxing and fun. The only downside of the situation was that the continuous drizzle made us eat more than we used to. Good thing we had enough food in the pantry and my MIL did all the cooking as usual. Love her talaga! Haha.

Weekend Story: PILs in the House + Decluttering My Closet

Last weekend, the hubby and I were joined by my PILs in Bacoor. We drove there on Friday night and headed back to Manila on Sunday afternoon. I was quite productive because I finally got to declutter my closet after ten years, hahaha. Seriously, it felt good to get rid of old clothes and to let go of new ones that I kept for so long because I thought they would fit me again. I admit it was difficult for me to do it but sometimes, hard decisions have to be made. I told myself I’d just buy new ones as a sort of reward when and if I’d be able to lose weight talaga in the (hopefully, near) future. The clothes, both old and new, are to go to Mame’s relatives upon her suggestion. Fine with me.

Weekend Story: Happy Fiesta, Peñaranda!

The hubby and I traveled to my hometown in Nueva Ecija last weekend. We were joined by Mame, my aunt Yolly, and my MIL. It was MIL’s first time to visit Peñaranda and do the fiesta thing with us. By fiesta thing, I meant hopping from one house to another to eat and socialize. I’m glad that our trip went smoothly and safely.

Catching up with relatives and friends is always fun. Doing it during the fiesta (read: Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi) is even more so because the atmosphere is festive and there’s lots of scrumptious food on the table. We sometimes even get to take home some food because our relatives and friends say so. (So sweet of them!) And because there’s too many houses to visit with so little time, it is inevitable that a friend makes “tampo” to Mame because she has too many friends in Peñaranda (even if it’s my father’s hometown, not hers) and she usually promises to visit them all. Haha.
