How I Scored This Rollerbal Victoria’s Secret Eau de Parfum

Getting freebies at Victoria’s Secret isn’t hard at all. If you follow them on social media or belongs to an FB group that posts deals and promos from stores, you can score yourself cool freebies from VS or other fave stores. How I scored this rollerball VS eau de parfum in store last weekend just by voting for VS’ new scent online that’s been going on and took a screenshot of it, showed it to the cashier at the register and voila! No questions asked, she handed me this nice scent perfume that I could wear once in a while. With no purchase necessary, I got this thing at least worth $10.

This is not the first time I got a freebie from them. If you are following my blog, you would know that. Thanks to VS for they know how to keep their customers happy and keep coming back to their store.

My New Favorite Lippy and Mascara from Covergirl Queen Collection

Below line of products is from Covergirl #QUEENCOLLECTION. I received them free complimentary for testing purposes from #Influenster.

There are only four things I would use on my face when going out, these are my sunscreen facial moisturizer, age defying serum, lipstick and eye liner. I am a simple woman and I don’t need a lot of make up in order to feel and look good about myself because I believe wearing my natural beauty is easier and if I get complimented with it, I’d be more prouder of myself than being liked by many because of my heavy makeup. I don’t know about you ladies but there’s no offense meant here.

Now, since I have tried this Covergirl Queen Collection False Lash Drama Mascara, looks like it is going to be added to my fave essential to put on before heading out to do errands. I have two other mascaras from Maybelline and Covergirl professional collection but I don’t use them as much maybe because I don’t get good beautiful natural-looking lashes from them when applied. But this new collection I just tried applying on, I fell in love with it right away. The result is instant long black lashes as you can see in the pictures below.

Also, I got another thing from the same collection which is a Stay Luscious Lipstick which gives me an all-day moisture and truly a long lasting wear. It stayed in my lip yesterday all day even if I had eaten once wearing it. Another good thing about this lippy is, it’s a new oil-based emollient-rich formula which gives me moisture without me applying for lip moisturizer. This one great lippy here is already has it plus I love its color. Not to be biased here, I like it more than my MAC lippies. Many say that MAC lasts all day, I somehow having a hard time to believe that. I have used mine, two of them actually a lot of times already yet, I don’t see it lasted all day.

As for the liquid foundation, I don’t use any form of foundation on my face. I like it to be naked with foundation but anyway, I am gonna try it on one of these days and I bet I won’t be disappointed with the product. I will post an update here whether I like it or not.

Open-Back Top is What I Like

I am 32 at the moment yet I don’t let this number keep me from buying and wearing trendy tops. I don’t have a thin body nor a sexy bony-showing back but I love wearing open-back tops. It is because, in my mind and in my heart, I don’t feel 32.

I don’t get attracted to tops that look vintage or too oldie. No, if I wear those, it’s like I am declaring to the world that I am getting old, haha. Just my own opinion. No offense please.

Anyway, I am glad I now have this real cute open-back long sleeves from Amazon and it truly is comfortable. I could wear this every time I go to the mall or a dinner with my family if not for its neon pink color. I have dark skin tone and I get even darker if I wear this often.

It is a current trend and it’s even cuter when paired with the right bra. I saw other reviewers on Amazon posting photos of themselves fitting on this top wearing a cami, like ladies, seriously??

Vitamins I Am Taking

It is undeniable that my age is past the calendar number now, so I all I can do is at least take care of myself by exercising 2/3x a week if possible and take vitamins and supplements in order to delay the aging process and help support my immune system. I tell you what, I rarely get sick, except for seasonal allergies but other than that, I feel good, I feel healthy and most of all I don’t feel my age.

I have brittle nails, I do have natural smooth hair and no acne/pimple problems yet I am taking these vitamins pictured below. Two pink bottles by the way are for my girls. I feel these vitamins are working especially for my nails. They no longer chip easily and they grow fast.

Vitamins are expensive but if you are a wise shopper, you’ll find ways on getting them for low prices. Coupons and store sales are my way to afford these and be able to continue taking them as long as I live.

How to Edit Fashion Photos with Movavi Photo Editor

Taking good fashion photos requires skill – not just in terms of how you position and take the shot, but also in terms of how you edit it afterwards. Even in a studio setting where you have control over most of the factors involved it is unlikely that your fashion photo will turn out ‘perfect’, and by editing it you’ll have the opportunity to work out any kinks while also adding some artistic final touches.

Needless to say, the way in which fashion photos need to be edited will vary depending on the situation. When it comes to fashion photography, the focus is normally on the apparel, accessories, or other types of fashion items that are being photographed and so you will want to show them at their best. In some cases all it takes to accomplish that is a few small adjustments, while in others you may need to perform more extensive edits.

Bearing all this in mind, the first thing you should do is go over your fashion photo and figure out how it can be improved. Ask yourself whether altering the frame or composition would help to showcase the fashion item better, or if the lighting or photo quality should be improved.

To actually pull off the necessary changes, you’ll need to use a picture editor such as Movavi Photo Editor. It will make editing your fashion photos easy and intuitive by providing numerous powerful features that are designed to be user-friendly. In short, even if you have no prior experience editing fashion photos you will be able to:

  • Alter the composition of your photos by removing unwanted elements from the frame such as people, objects, shadows, date stamps and so on.
  • Adjust the frame and orientation by flipping, rotating, resizing, cropping or leveling it.
  • Improve the photo quality either manually or automatically, and correct common issues such as blurry or pixelated photos.
  • Delete the entire background and replace it with a new image.
  • Apply filters to stylize the photo in various ways.
  • Add customizable text to create unique captions, watermarks, or titles.

Between the features in Movavi Photo Editor it should be easy for you to implement tweaks and adjustments that improve your fashion photos. Assuming you already have a few ideas of what you’d like to do it would be a good idea to get started – and see firsthand how easy and straightforward it can be.

Very Healthy Dessert

Mangoes and avocados are in season around this time of year. With that being said, buying them will not be too expensive plus you get the good quality with no bruises plus there are plenty of them everywhere. An example of this is the mangoes that we bought at the Asian market last weekend, there are 14 pieces in a box and cost us only $12.99 and they are big size mangoes. I bought two boxes of it and we still have some to last for a few days more.

Here’s what I did to some of the mangoes and avocados. I diced them, scoop out of the skin and put together in a bowl mixed with yogurt smoothie (a healthy alternative for sweet condensed milk), add some pecan nuts and sprinkled some paprika, VOILA! A healthful dessert I could eat. Hey, wait a minute, while for some it’s a dessert but to me, it was my dinner already.

It is pretty filling so I did not need to eat anything else after finishing all of it in one eating. I would be excited to make more of this later and indulge the food while it’s still available.

New Shears for Pruning in the Garden

It’s the time of year again when leaves starting to grow, seeds sprout, colorful flowers and shrubs begin to give us blooms. Yes, I am talking about Spring season. It’s second favorite season of the year because I get to see my garden oozing with different varieties of plants and colors for three months.

With the said, behind every successful garden lies a tender loving care from the owners and not to forget, some tools to maintain the gardens. I am talking about shovels, wheel borrows, pruning shears and all.

These shears are definitely an upgrade to the small and dull one I have. I did not realize that I needed something sharp and at the same time work effectively until I got these. Are soft in my hand with non-slip grip handles. Do not need to use so much force as they are sharp and can be used with anything else. Truly thankful for these as I now have a tool so essential pruning my roses and cutting off those unwanted difficult to cut growths in my flower garden.

These shears have a nice tension lock to keep it closed and safety when not in use and to keep children from hurting themselves when they find it laying around.

I love that they came with a proper pruning instructions, do’s and don’ts to give me an idea how to properly cut my roses next time without damaging the stems or the plants. I am pleased with these shears as they are also very well-made and of high quality.

Get yours on Amazon for just $38.90 PRIME. You will love the product, promise!

I received this product for free in exchange of my honest review. All opinions are 100% mine.

Special Chop Suey and a Salad Dessert

Nothing beats home cooked meals! I do that 99% of our meals and I know I’ve said that over and over again. I have been craving for chop suey – a Filipino dish loved by many. It’s a healthy dish that contains mostly vegetables and meat of your choice.

I cooked seafood flavor chop suey and it’s special for it has young corn and quail eggs which you will not commonly see in most chop suey. Also, I used a special ingredient to it, I used a squid Carved blanched pineapple cut for it which I bought from Hongkong Market in frozen section.

I love that I cooked it perfectly, so juicy and tasty that satisfied my craving. Thank God for such a delicious dish that filled our stomach.

If you want to try this out, go to for the recipe and replace the meat of your choice if you don’t like chicken. Make sure you don’t miss one secret ingredient that adds a flavorful taste to your chop suey, the oyster sauce!
