As some of you might have noticed (I often mention it in my blog, anyway), I'm not a big fan of pink especially when it comes to clothing or shoes.  So maybe you're wondering why our collections always include a dress or a top in this color even though I'm the one who hand picks everything.  Well maybe, I'm just a part of the 1% of the population who do not prefer wearing anything pink.  The other 99% of women love it.  Yea, #pinkpower.  HAHA!  That being said, TCC should have pink pieces.  Our clothes are not for my own closet, anyway.  Though I also grabbed some of my super super favorites.

Here's another reason.  Kris always reminds me to pick a pink piece.  Sometimes, I imagine him raising a pink flag and shouting "No, choose the pink one!"  

Do you like this LPD or little pink dress?  Obviously, the pink version of LBD's.  No need to explain actually.  HAHA! 

Two shades of pink in one!  It has pockets too!  

I don't know what exactly they are called, but if you see those 2 lines at the back, they kinda make this piece more flattering.  They add form.  I really like the fit.  As an added bonus an extra details, there are also pleats at the skirt part.

What do you think?

Last week, we were looking for a resto along Jupiter St. and spotted a burger joint located at a small corner one tumbling away from Starbucks.  We decided to go for it because as you know, Kris cannot say no to a burger.

The Burger Project has almost the same concept as with any other burger restaurants in the Metro.  The make-your-own-burger has been a hype, not to mention the crazy, clever, out of this world topping combinations.

The place has a very modern and urban vibe.  It's not spacious and probably, can only accommodate 20 to 30 people.  I like the colorful graffiti-ish design especially the ceiling part.

They gave us this piece of paper (and a pen, of course) and we started doing our project.  The instruction is very straightforward as you can see.

You also get to name your own burger.

Lazy Bear Burger (195)
100% Beef - 115
Sesame Bun - free
Bleu Cheese - 35
Mixed Mushrooms - 25 (no more arugula)
Special BRGR sauce - 20

Kris ordered the pre-made designer burger called Western Bacon Mushroom.  Aside from those, we also got Mozarella sticks (around 145 php).

We loved it.  I think it's the biggest mozzarella stick we've tried so far.  And look at that filling!  It's like 90:10 ratio.  HAHA!

The salsa was a bit bland though.

Say hello to Lazy Bear!

The bun deserved a perfect score of 5 burps.  

The patty on the other hand, was lacking at many different levels.  I took a bite without the sauce or any topping and for me, the taste was not impressive.  It's also too oily.

Next, the Special BRGR sauce.  It ruined my appetite to be honest.  I hated the sweet taste.  The color reminded me of the usual ketchup+mayo sauce but it's far from that.

The bleu cheese was unnoticeable.  The sauteed mushrooms intensified my disappointment.  The mushroom flavor was super strong.

I think I only ate 1/4 of it.  Too bad.

Here's Kris' designer burger (slightly above 200 php).  If you're wondering what's that fried topping, those are onion rings!  Gigantic!

Kris put those 2 aside anyway.  Imagine taking a bite with those giant rings.  HAHA!

This burger tasted better than mine, but since mushrooms were also included, it caused a big turn off. 

We're not happy with the overall experience.  I don't know.  Maybe Kris just picked the wrong burger and I created a disastrous one.  Maybe it deserves a second chance too.  HIHI!

In the second batch of my Korean cosmetics haul, I grabbed another product from Innisfree.  I'm not sure why but for some reason, I fell in love with the brand even by only watching reviews on Youtube.  So, I always check out their latest offerings and everything seems to be interesting.  Expect more features here on le blog.

This time, I bought their makeup remover called Apply Juicy.

The inspiration behind this is the end result of washing an apple.  Squeaky-clean.  But of course, it contains apple extract for additional skin benefits.

100 ml

It's gentle on skin but tough on long-wearing makeup.  It is very similar to common makeup removers because it's a combination of oil and "water" formula which means that you have to shake it first before using.

Let me show you some before and after photos.

Let's test it with waterproof eye pencils.  (Stay tuned for a separate review!)

It passed!

Now, onto the lipstick test.

No trace and no stain left.

What I love about it:

  • no breakout or irritation
  • does not sting the eyes much
  • breaks down eye makeup well 
  • scentless
  • oil does not last, no greasy feeling after
  • removes waterproof makeup
  • no need to tug the eyes
  • might suit oily and sensitive skin 
  • smooth skin after application, no dryness
  • removes lipstick well, even lip tint 
  • removes BB cream well

The lash lines may require an extra effort by using cotton buds to remove mascara and eye liner.  I don't have heavy eye makeup here but I hope this is enough for you to notice the difference.

Poor cotton ball!  :P

Dark circles are visible again.  HAHA!

Overall, I'm so happy with this product.  I must say that it's one of the best because it requires almost no pulling and tugging and that's important because the eye area is very sensitive.  It completely removes makeup (#handsdown) but I'd still not recommend skipping the washing-your-face part. Furthermore, the formula is great and it leaves the skin feeling moisturized and clean.  You can even re-apply makeup after.  #whatmorecanyouaskfor
