January 2015 Favorites

           The month of love has come! Who's excited for V-Day? Haha! Me? I have classes so I just probably be in the Graduate School. Anyways, I will be talking about my 2nd  January Favorites today. Time flies by so fast. I cannot even believe that this blog will celebrate it's 2nd anniversary on June. :) (*giving you all a grateful smile)  This will be a really quick post so I hope you will continue reading. I don't have much beauty products for this post because as always, I have been using the same products. But, I have added some categories like favorite site and style items. 


Essence All About Matt Oil Control Make-up Base - A decent base. It dries quickly and doesn't feel sticky nor heavy. The formula makes my face makeup last all day long. My skin feels smooth and looks dewy after I apply this. This is a lightweight base so you don't have to worry about layering products on your face. A little of this goes a long a way. It has a little bit of a typical paint scent but it's totally bearable. I notice that my skin gets somehow oily during lunch time but my makeup is still intact. If you are looking for an affordable base for your oily skin, I suggest getting this one. This is only Php 289 at Watsons's


Hair Treats Hair Coat (Macadamia) - Oh my goodness, I'm obsessed with this hair styling product. Girls like me with wavy hair will really appreciate this. I apply this on my hair after taking a bath; combing first then scrunching it. I like this better than my hair curling lotion because it give moisture and doesn't look stiff after drying. I let my hair air dry to let the oil sink into my hair. Upon arriving at the office, I comb my hair again and looks like natural loose waves with amounts of shine. It smells like a freshly baked cupcake which makes me love it even more. I also recommend checking this one. This could also be found at Watson's


Pond's Clear Solutions Anti-Bacterial Facial Scrub - This is an irony; I actually liked a product from the said brand. I have actually mentioned on my first product empties post that I don't like products from Pond's because they break me out. But, this one is different. After weeks of using this, I noticed how my skin got clearer and radiant. I haven't had a single zit after my first wash with this. This gentle to my skin and has a nice, semi-sweet scent. In my opinion, this is the best facial scrub I have ever used. I recommend this to all of you. 


Adidas Neo Label Super Wedge Sneakers - I can't get enough of these rockstars! The first time I tried these, they were a little bit tight. But, after a few days straight of wearing these, they got comfortable. What I love about these is that they are comfortable to wear all throughout the day. This particular color and design is very stylish; it matches with almost every outfit I wear and is appropriate for most occasions. (I even wore these on work! Haha!) To tell you honestly, I also wore these when we went to Boracay. Haha! I even wear these on the beach! Silly me. Haha!

            I get compliments whenever I wear these. When you put them on, you will instantly feel increased self-confidence and gives a right amount of attitude (a little bit swaggy too, I must say). The fabric is suede as you can see and it's prone to dirtiness so I have to be really careful in handling these. The picture below was taken from scholl. See? I even wear these on Graduate School. That's how I love these shoes! I'm obsessed! Haha! If you have the chance to buy these type of shoes, go and grab! It's worth the money. 

White and Black Freshwater Pearls Pandora Bracelet - I'm not a pearl person but the moment I saw this on Boracay, I fell in love with it and bought it. Freshwater pearls are cultured pearls and a lot affordable than natural pearls. I bought this from Puka Beach, Boracay if you are wondering. The lady sold this to me for Php150 only; she gave a great bargain because I was her first buyer. So nice of her! :) Anyways, I love this because it looks elegant and classy. This is not a cheapy bracelet that you can buy anywhere; it's something exclusive and made by the natives of Boracay Island. The charms do not fade nor can be stained. I've been wearing this a lot too the past month. :) 

Social Networking

Instagram - I've posting a lot of pictures on Instagram lately. From ootds, nail polish, face of the days, food, my activities and so much more. Haha! Thanks to my LG Fino, I can now post high quality pictures. If you want to stalk or follow me, here's my account: delightfulillusions. Haha! :)

That concludes my January Favorites for 2015. Did you enjoy reading? Any questions and suggestions? Please let me know. Thank you so much for reading and stopping by. It is truly appreciated. :) I'll talk to you soon. Be safe. I love you all! XOXO
