Sephora & CVS Mini Haul, my cancelled lunch and the green eyed monster

I was suppose to have lunch with my friend Roxanne today. I started getting ready around 10am (you know me. I need at least 2 hours). Actually, I wasn’t feeling well when I woke up this morning. After breakfast I took some meds and hoping I’d feel better within the day.

I forced myself to get ready even tho’ I wasn’t feeling well. JSP would always tell me “force yourself. Make an effort” everytime I’d feel the green eyed monster creeping in and I won’t have the energy to go out.

So, I forced myself. But when I was done changing and was about to leave to pick up Roxanne, I just couldn’t. I felt so sick. I have taken 2 dosage of Advil since breakfast but it still hasn’t kick in by 12noon. I had to call Roxanne and cancel the lunch. I know Roxanne would understand cause she knows what I am going through.

Thanks Roxy.

I laid down in bed and fell asleep. I was thinking I’d better sleep this off.

This freaking menopausal symptoms just won’t stop. When will this end?

I know I promised you a mini Sephora & CVS haul this morning. So, here it is.


My niece, Eng (her real name is Shelvy) arrived from her LAX flight this morning. She’s a PAL flight stewardess  and part time my personal shopper. She texted me around 5 am and told me to send my driver to the airport to pick up my stuff cause she has a straight flight to Cebu. Claudia also had a small package that she bought online and had it delivered in Eng’s apartment in LA.

I don’t know what happened to me but I got obsessed with the Marc Jacobs make up line recently. It’s so strange cause when I was in Hawaii early this year the whole Marc Jacobs make up line was all over Sephora. But I didn’t even look at it. I was busy with Tarte, Hourglass, NARS, etc.

So, I asked Eng to buy for me when she left for LA last week end.

Top to bottom: Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con No. 7 | Marc Jacobs O!Mega Bronzer | Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con No. 3
Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con No. 7
7 shades of awesomeness
I love the packaging. It is so sleek, compact and it’s very luxurious!


And I like that it comes with a pouch. Good for traveling.
Marc Jacobs Style Eye-Con No. 3
Love the colors! With just these 3 shades I guess you’re good to go!
Marc Jacobs O!Mega Bronze in Perfect Tan
I am obsessed with bronzers, this one included. I like the big mirror.
It’s a big bronzer. But Sephora brand came out with a bronzer in this size too. Which I bought in Sephora NYC two years ago and I am still using it.
It is so compact. Love it!



Ever since Kylie Jenner have been rocking the 90’s look, matte lips, big wispy eyelashes and cat eye flick, everyone went crazy. Screen Shot 2014-09-26 at 3So, Maybelline came out with a whole new matte line. In connection with the latest craze, the 90’s matte lips look that Kylie Jenner started. You can view the full line here.

I asked Eng to buy me all colors. Either in CVS or Target. She went to 2 Target but it was out of stock! She found me 2 shades in CVS.

IMG_2413 IMG_2414 IMG_2415 Ughhhh. I was so frustrated cause I wanted all colors! But at least I got 2 of the nude shades.

So, that’s the end of my haul.

I just stayed in bed the whole afternoon. I feel so much better now compared this morning but still not feeling my 100% yet.

Green eyed monster, go away!



  • Hi ms. tina. i am your new follower. are u by any chance related to the enads from san fernando and minglanilla cebu? my late grandpa used to tell me that the original enads were from san fernando and brought to other places thru their marriages. coz i am from san fernando and one of my mama’s relatives got married to an enad. by the way, ms. tina i really like your fashion sense and everything that revolves around it. got a distinct style and your know how carry it very well. that’s why i never fail to visit this site everyday. likewise, by your writing style, i could sense that despite your status in society you’re very down to earth. i started following you the day i saw you at the mactan airport leaving for manila after the triathon more than a month ago. so pretty,classy and elegant.

    • Hi, My dad is from Minglanilla. The Enads in San Fernando are his relatives.

      Thanks for reading my blog and for your wonderful compliments!
