Caffe Izzo & Stick House

I love coffee so whenever I have the time I bond with friends over a cup of coffee :) I just discovered cafe izzo at trinoma recently. I used to think that its expensive here but I was surprised to know that the prices are affordable.

Plus points:

Free wifi (dito pa lang OK na ako! lol)
Good affordable Coffee
Cool interiors
Nice staff
Comfortable al fresco area

Java Chip Freeze P130

My view from the al fresco area

Warm color palette

Love the couch

They also have stickhouse which is gelato on a stick with toppings!! so good :)

Cool chair eh?! (Bagay sa studio) lol

Happy Me! :D

I love Caffe Izzo!!!
Located at the Cinema Level Trinoma Mall

Beauty and Butter - Nail Salon

Strange name for a nail salon but trust me when I say every penny spent is worth it! Today is my 3rd time to visit and the services offered gets better and better :) Today they let me use the IPAD! hahha and as I type this I am now scouring ebay for an IPAD seller! OMG! hahhaha

You get to use this for FREE (Php500 worth of treatment/nail services). Plus Step Up 2 is showing in their flat screens so I was not bored at all.

Since I dont get to have my mani/pedi done regularly I decided to splurge a bit and avail of their special combo of Mani/Pedi plus paraffin treatment for hands and feet which costs 999 pesos. I decided to have dark purple with red and silver glitters and here is the finished product :D

The last time I went there I was a bit disappointed because the staff kept on pushing products my way. Good thing nothing like that happened. Hope it stays that way! Customers will ASK if they are interested :)

Product Review: Wet n wild Lip Products

I love lip liners! It makes lipsticks last longer and it makes as a good base prior to lipstick application. But I always get frustrated because super few drugstore brands carries "good lipliners". That is why I was super happy when I found out that wet n wild is already available here in the PI!

I got a few lip liners and lipsticks and decided to share them with you :)

Top L to R - 2 Wet n Wild lipstick, Revlon Gloss and Lipstick (separate review for Revlon)
Bottom - Wet n Wild Lip liners

LIP LINER Swatches
Left to Right: Berry Red, Willow, Fab Fuchsia

  • I super love the wide range of colors to choose from
  • Almost "kohl" like in consistency but still have that "firmness". Suffice to say it does not break easily but glides effortlessly on lips!
  • My favorite is Fab Fuchsia and pair it with dark eyeshadows (super fab talaga)
  • Berry Red is great if you wanna go minimal with your eyeshadows
  • Willow is a great neutral shade...goes with anything
  • The size is bigger than your regular lipliner
  • and i LOVE that its only 99 pesos!!

Lipsticks: L-R 552a, 525d

  • I am also in love with the lipsticks...super stays the whole day (paired with a lip liner that is)
  • 552a is a good red lippie with a dash of dark pink...its almost burgundy in color
  • I love 525d because it reminds me of my MAC Lady Gaga lipstick but more pigmented!! I super love this shade
  • Priced at 99 pesos
So girls if you are looking for cool lipstick shades that are super duper affordable visit Wet n Wild! :D

Where to find Wet n Wild?

CUESHE MTV - Pangako

Being a makeup artist I do not have to luxury of "sick leaves". But being human I do get sick and it is a problem if i am sick when gigs are booked beforehand.

I had a very high fever when we did the shoot...when you click the link you will see that the environment is really uncomfortable smoke-fire-fever=disaster. I have to put a brave face and just braced myself for the inevitable..good thing Kris was there to help me move about and took care of retouch etc. I love the outcome and it was all worth it!

Some Behind the scenes outtakes

With singer Jay

Kulit shot with Fritz (retouch din daw nya ako :P)

So vote for them at MYX!! Lets support Cushe! Super nice song btw :D

The RED DOOR Makeup Studio

I love everything vintage! It is just fascinating to go back in time and see how people have lived their lives then. Hence the reason why I chose to do a very "vintage" theme for my makeup studio. I have a quirky personality and though I love doing natural looks (which is by far the safest look ever!) I have a personality that is fun loving, colorful and yess youthful! Lol!

I love to make my clients laugh and feel at ease. Siguro that is one of the reasons they keep coming back :) So without much further ado...here are some photos of my makeup studio :

My friend/hairstylist/image stylist/carpenter Kris, me and my hubby did everything...super labor of love talaga :) I wanted it to be very personal and so I invite you to come and visit if you can :)

But of course due to my kinda harrid schedule I only accept bookings by appointment only

Dubai based Jessica had her trial makeup and we will see each other next Saturday for her wedding. She was with her mom and initially tita was so shocked with my pink hair I can feel the hesitation but then again as we get to talk and after I am finished with the makeup she was so happy and she was smiling from ear to ear. I love mother of the brides :D they always make my day and reminds me of my own mom during my wedding day! :D

Here are the before and after pics of Jessica :D
