Life update

I was cleaning out my room, decluttering some things. And found my old film camera, stabilo pens, drawing pen. Didn’t know that i bought stabilo pens before, and i have different colors that i can used for my journal now. Just lucky me to found these things lol. But not really sure if my old film camera is still working. This camera is too old, i remember my mom gave this to me back in elementary days for my school trip so i can take pics of every place or things that i find beautiful or interesting. Good thing is the camera still looks nice, found it together with pouch. Not so sure if it’s still working, gonna try to buy battery and film for it. Supposed to attend an event for the photowalk in Intramuros, i think they don’t have a slot anymore for any participating people and i’m not sure if i can make it this saturday. Because the celebration of my bro birthday and my birthday (eheem haha) also is on this week saturday. We gonna celebrate it with bro wife families and childhood friends. Hopefully it will be fun this saturday. Can’t wait for it.

Went back to Black Scoop Cafe again two weeks ago lol. Couldn’t help it to drink brown sugar latte. With cream cheese it taste so much better. I’ll be back again with my journal, but i’m thinking of going back to my favourite cafe in Southmall. It’s a korean cafe, the place is peaceful i guess during weekdays. I’ve been taking care of myself this month, and i’m doing good so far. My sleeping time is already fixed now. I felt like i have to do something like any hobbies so i went back doing my old routine before, back when i was really contented with my life lol.

The only difference is.. i get to cook whatever food i want. I’ve been looking for any japanese and korean healthy recipes lately and have try some of it. And also i’ve been watching some korean popular influencer in youtube lol. It’s nice that they do a lot of things, i mean they’re not really focus on one thing, but to the other things as well. Like they do weaving, arts, reading books, stationaries, taking care of their health, and of course to cook haha. It’s really inspiring to watch their videos, it makes you want to be a better person. It does really help me a lot and i’d like to say thanks to those blogger in youtube especially to “Ondo”. She really reminds me of myself.

Makes me realised that i can also do some things together like drawings, baking, and reading books. Recently i bought some drawing pens from the artbar, i’ll buy more probably next week. Also kinda wanna try to go back doing some photography stuffs.

Just updating what was happening in my life right now. I hope you have a good day. *hugs*

Life update

Black Scoop Cafe

A couple of months ago, i’m supposed to go to a new milk tea store here in our mall. It’s their first opening day at that time, you can buy milk tea for two for only one price and if you are one of the first 100 costumers you will get a free tumbler. Sadly i’m not one of those 100 people lol, i didn’t make it. I don’t want to mention the name of that milk tea store, cause they failed to open the store at 9am instead they open it at 11am. I stand in the line for two hours, and i have sunburn already haha. But it’s nice ’cause i get to talk with other people as well, the two girls in front of me was really nice and friendly and offer me to hangout with them to eat lunch but i said i can’t cause i have some errands (why i always don’t grab the opportunity to make new friends lately). I gave up and went inside the mall and found a new cafe that i haven’t try, i was walking around and saw “Black Scoop Cafe”. I check their place, it’s nice and peaceful inside. I love the interior of their cafe just simple with nice music to listen also.

I try their “Wintermelon milk tea”. It taste great and they don’t add so much ice on it. When it comes to their price, just a little pricey with other cafes but not so bad.

And yesterday i went back to the cafe again for my cheat day lol. I’ve been addicted eating different kinds of bread lately haha. I try their “brown sugar latte” not sure of the name but correct me if i’m wrong. And the cashier suggest me to add cream cheese cause it will taste better so i agree with it, but you have to pay for additional price for that. It really taste better and perfect combination of the bread that i buy from Bread Talk lol. Sorry i always forget the name (am i getting older now haha), i think the flavour of bread is coffee but it taste nice also.

There’s a lot of people in the cafe now. But the people are friendly like they would smile at you which is nice. That brown sugar latter taste so heavenly nice with cream cheese, i will surely order that again.

I wanted to visit some new cafes lately and bring some of my book or draw, but i prefer a peaceful cafe. Hopefully i’ll find a peaceful cafe soon.

Cat journal

I’ve been writing a lot in my journal lately, i have so many realisations this month. Writing it, can also helps to know what i want. I’m really glad that journaling became popular these days. Since a lot of people was really into the digital world like blogging. I wouldn’t deny it, i also like blogging. But it’s really different when you wrote it on a paper or notebook. Journaling is different now, you can used washi tapes with cute designs on it, stationery, and also stickers. I bought the cat journal on Yoyoso, a korean store. I’m obsessed on checking some korean stores lately lol. They have so many cute stuffs there. And they have a different cat journal designs, but of course i’ve only bought one. They also have stickers, and you can buy the stickers in a affordable price unlike other korean store.

I wrote last night on what i need to improve about myself. I really need to improve my sleeping time seriously haha! Writing on a journal.. it’s like a therapy, especially i can also design each page by using washi tape and putting some stickers. I have so many stationery that i never used anymore, since the digital world became popular before and you only need to used email to send a message or letter, and now you can used any other chat apps. I always like receiving letter from my friends before. The last time that i wrote a letter was in college. Wrote a letter for my best friend and she wrote me back lol.

I wish other people would still write on a journal. I would want to encourage them, write a physical letter to your friends. 🙂

Would write some more next week. I’ve noticed i have so many stuffs to blog including some coffee shop that i went two months ago lol.

Fav. skin care

I started using this “Green Tea Seed Serum” four months ago and this is my second bottle. First try buying the sample pack first on Lazada, which you can have 10 pcs so it’s 10 days. I used it every morning only, cause i’m using a different serum every night. I’ve heard that Innisfree best selling product is this serum. Since i have oily skin, this is really suited for my skin. After you apply it on the face, it’s really watery but your skin can quickly absorb it. It can make your skin soft, brighten, and hydrate your skin as well. The seller also gave me a free sample, thank you. It’s nice that they have a box for this serum. I remember buying my first bottle of this, it didn’t have box so i felt a little worry that it’s not authentic at first. But after using it.. it’s really legit.

If you really want an affordable price for this serum, i would recommend to buy it online from Lazada. They sell it not so pricey and their product is authentic. The packaging could change in time as well. Innisfree already launch their first store in the Philippines this year in MOA as i remember, and second branch was on SM Megamall (not so sure lol). The price is different.. more pricey. Innisfree is one of the korean best skin care store so I wouldn’t the question the price.

I always forgot to blog about the new facial mask that I’m using. Went to the mall yesterday for some errands, and bought facial mask in The Face Shop. They have different price on every facial mask. I pick this facial mask for my oily skin, i really love this mask. I feel like the mask also clean my pores after using it and also brighten my skin lol. The mask helps to reduce shine on your face, so it’s really good for oily skin. Whenever i’m a little lazy to do all my skin care routine at night, i’m only using facial mask after applying my toner. I only used facial mask once a week. I am using a different facial mask also, my other favourite mask is from Origins.

I got a free toner when I pay it. The cashier lady is kind and friendly and gave me a free toner cause we did laughs a bit. Also yesterday i got a free ice cream as well, cause i did used my Globe rewards to buy ice cream on DQ. Such a nice day yesterday.

Cat bowls

I went to the mall last Saturday to buy some kitchen necessities. And buy some bowls from the Japan Home Store (not really sure if that’s the correct name of the store :|), the store is also the same just like Daiso. I’ve always been collect any cat stuffs, so i did my hunting of it last saturday. Luckily i found this, it’s so cute! I felt like i don’t really want to used this and just keep it lol. But i’m sure it is needed in the kitchen, and i also buy a mug.

I broke one mug last week, when i drink milk tea. In here, if you break any glass like mug or anything, bad luck will come your way. I kinda felt like it was true. Whenever i broke any glass or mug, i always replace it with a new one so there’s no misfortune things that will happened to me lol.

More cat stuffs to added on my collection soon!

Journal challenge

I started doing the journal challenge two weeks ago and buy another new washi tape, and this cute sharpener. I’m not sure how long i’ll finish doing the challenge. I can only write one entry per week lol. But it’s fun to do it, it makes me relax and i felt like creative at least in a day. I needed more stickers, i also look in any magazine to find a nice texture to used on my journal and cut it, or any thing that i find interesting.

It can be messy when you are writing on your journal, the cutting and other things. I need to buy a new cabinet to organise my things. Especially the journal, stationary, stickers, and washi tape. I’m going to collect it slowly and just put in one drawer so it’s easier to find it. I do have so many things that i wanted to buy. Hopefully i can save up a bit haha!

I create a new account on instagram to post all of my drawings. You can follow me at blue_kuharo, but i’m still gonna update my art blog in wordpress from time to time.

Ponds and The Faceshop

Back when I was in high school, I’ve been using a lot of Ponds skincare like their facial wash, toner, and whitening cream. I’m sure you will question it why some asian countries would want to have more lighter skin, it’s because of the weather. It’s a tropical country, so most the people here have darker skin colour. But my family had a different skin colour it’s more fair, because some of the Filipino people already had a little mix but mostly it is spanish. People would always want to have a lighter skin colour, they will probably find some whitening product to used.

When I was still in high school, there’s only a few brand of skin care products before. But Ponds is popular at that time. My mom introduce to this brand. My skin doesn’t really irritate whenever I used their product. If you are using skincare at the early age, you would still look younger and skin still better when you grow old. But it takes some effort and also you needed to give time for it, the skin care routine during in the morning and evening. For me it will take more than 30 minutes to be done after I take a shower. How bout you girls?

The Ponds released another new product, the “Instabright tone up milk cream”. The product is actually from Thailand i think, because of the letters from the package. This product is hard to find sometimes, I bought this from Watson on the 3rd floor of Festival Mall. I was looking for this product for a few months, luckily I find it. This is perfect to used even if you have oily skin, since it is made for asian skin. I love the smell of it, it’s really smells like milk. It also have a spf, and can brighten your skin instantly. Also good for pores since it have milk, my skin became a bit bouncy like a baby. It also helps my blemishes. I super love this product. It is one of my favourite for this month.

The faceshop had promo last month (save it as a draft first), you can buy two “Jeju aloe ice” for only the price of one product. One of the popular beauty guru from youtube, used this product but a different brand. She had a good result on her skin, I was curious to try it. I’ve been seeing this product last year, but never been interested to try it since i prefer the aloe vera. You have to put this in the fridge, before using it. This is good to used, especially during the summer.

Before using this, you have to put this on the fridge first for about 7 hours. I used this every night before i sleep. It does have a cooling effect when you spread the cream on your face, and it feels good. The jeju aloe ice can easily absorb on your face for about 10-15 minutes. I am using my fan on my face so it may help. The cream texture is very soft, it feels like ice cream when you touch it and it smells like a coconut. My face become a bit smoother than before, it also helps if you have acne prone skin. I recommend to used this during at night only.
