Queen of the desert

I'm not, Priscilla is. 

It was a fun day yesterday at London cos we watched Priscilla, Queen of the desert, a westend/broadway show at Palace Theatre.

The characters were all great specially the guy who portrayed Felicia Jollygoodfellow. The show was hilarious, the casts all sang very well. It was such a great show! If you haven't watched it yet, I strongly recommend that you do.

We ended the day with a great dinner at Benares, an Indian Resto, also in London. The food was lovely, and the service was amazing.

If you are living or visiting the UK, i recommend that you visit Benares and watch Priscilla, you will surely enjoy it.

I had a great time!

I LVoe Bags: Prada


The newest addition to my collection--Prada Gaufre' Fabric Tote.

This will be my last bag purchase for this trip.. hopefully.


Treats for my hair

Went to the salon today for a haircut and hair treatment. It's been a while since I had my hair cut and treated. I promised to take care of my hair from now on so I bought some Kerastase products to take home with me.

My hair used to be waist length, thick, lifeless and dull. I like how my hair turned out. Now it looks like this..

not the best photo but it looks healthier and more manageable :)

Thanks to the very nice and helpful hairstylist at John Jenkins

most coveted bronzer?

This Bronzing Makeup Base (Soleil Tan de Chanel) is really hard to find. It's sold out everywhere.
I've tried so many times to get this in (House of Fraser, Harrods, Boots) shops or order online, but always unsuccessful. Until I passed by the Chanel counter in Harrods on the way out. I just asked the SA without expectations. And guess what? -- they have it (and plenty more)! 

Since I was there, I also picked up the Mat Lumiere Foundation.

The texture's really smooth and smells really nice! If you want to get your hands on this baby, I suggest you run to Harrods now! :D

 I guess it was my lucky day :)

I LVoe Bags: Balenciaga Giant City

Balenciaga Giant City in Anthracite with Rose Gold Hardware
Another dream bag.


I LVoe belongings: Burberry Nylon Tote

What's in the bag????

A tote that travels well, wherever the destination. Nylon body with signature horse on leather tab at front. Leather trim and double shoulder straps. Gunmetal hardware. Top zip and drawstring closures. Interior zip pocket. Burberry logo check lining.
  • Nylon
  • 16″W x 14″H x 4.5″D
  • 7″ drop

I love the plaid lining. The bag exterior is plain, and the plaid interior gives the bag a statement. You can put so much stuff inside. I love to use mine as a beach bag..

A very affordable bag from Burberry. Retails at $195 in the US, but I got mine in Singapore for SGD300..its much pricey in singapore..

Current Skincare

My skincare products are really boring that's why I never bothered to post one, until today. The ones I usually use are products from my dermatologist, which are really effective, but are not available in drugstores or supermarkets.

But ever since I arrived here in UK, I decided to try other brands because using the same products for more almost a year can be boring. So for two weeks now I've been using skincare products from Boots, which (sad to say) are not available in Philippines.

l-r: Vichy One Step Cleanser; Vichy Normaderm Purifying Cleansing Gel; Vichy Refreshing Toner; La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense
I've read several good reviews about each product.

1. Vichy One Step Cleanser for sensitive skin is a 3in1 product. Its a cleansing milk, Toner and eye make-up remover. I use it as the latter.
2. Vichy Normaderm Purifying Cleansing Gel (Acne Prone Skin) is what I use to wash my face. 
3. Vichy Refreshing Toner (for normal to combination, sensitive skin)
4. And lastly, La Roche-Posay Hydraphase Intense Riche to moisturize.
*5. Sunblock in the morning (not pictured)

I'm thinking whether I should continue using these products or switch back to my old skincare since I'm having a bout with pimples..hmmm..

Zit Zapper

Pimple has never really been a problem for me...until now. I only get pimple/s when its that of the month. But the past 3 weeks had been horrible. I've tried at least 3 creams/ointment already and nothing seemed to have worked.

Sudocrem, Quinoderm 10%, La Roche Posay Effaclar A.I.
or maybe I'm just impatient? I only tried each product for a week, and when I didn't see an improvement I moved on to the next one. Should I try using the product longer?

I also had a facial the other day, hoping it would help clear or reduce the size of pimples on my face even just a bit. But no, it made the pimple even bigger which is now an acne? 

I even stopped using tinted moisturizers or foundation on my face with hopes that it will help clear out the pimples and make the acne/pimple creams more effective.

I don't know what else to do or put on my face :((. 

Now, I'm itching to try the Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Treatment Cream which promises to reduce spot size and redness in just four hours.

Has anyone tried using Clearasil or any of the products mentioned above? Did it work for you? I would really really appreciate if you could share with me your spot treatment products. 

big thanks!

And we're haulin.
