Lunch & Haul on a Monday

I had lunch with my friend Maika today in Wildflour Salcedo Village. We decided to eat there ’cause it is just walking distance from her clinic (H.V. de la Costa). And which is also good for me because after lunch I planned to drop by the office of my web designer (to consult something) and his office is also walking distance from Wildflour (Pacific Star Bldg).

Maika (my derma) and I had fun catching up since we haven’t seen each other close to a year already. She just had given birth 2 mos. ago and she is back working already.

We talked mostly about the kids (my kids and her kids). Maika had twin girls last year and 5 mos. after the twins were born she got pregnant right away. This time a boy. I was shocked to see her ’cause she looked as if she didn’t just have a baby. She went back to her normal weight after 2 months! wow.

I was telling her about Vito and Claudia who is just 10 mos. apart. When Vito was 2 mos. old I got pregnant with Claudia already. Exactly what happened to Maika. I told her that  when siblings are less than a year apart from each other they’re called “Irish Twins.”

I told her expect fighting every 5 minutes. They will for sure fight a lot. When Vito & Claudia were toddlers they would fight non stop. Altho’ it is very much different now that they are older. They love each other to death and they’re barkadas.

But when they were younger you can’t let them go near each other. In fact when we are in the car I have to sit in between them. Otherwise they would fight.

I remember every time they would fight Vito would tell Claudia to shut up and to listen to him ’cause he is older. And Claudia would say “yeah, right. Only by 10 months.” And Vito would ran to me and blame me. “Mom! Couldn’t you wait for a year?”

I’d get embarrassed every time Vito would say that.

Anyway, I discovered something in Wildflour. I ordered this pasta (I forgot the name) made of arugula and it was sooooo freaking yummy! It was really so good. I thought of ordering pasta since I wanted something light. So, I ordered this (my first time to try it).


I’m really sorry I forgot the name. Just ask for the arugula pasta. They would know.

So, if you’re in Wildflour try to order this. Highly recommended!

Before going home I dropped by Rustan’s to pick up my Chanel Les Rouge Collection Les 4 Ombres quadra eyeshadow. It arrived already and they called me and it was ready for pick up!

Yay! I can now make a haul! So, here it is. My Chanel Les Rouge Collection.

Let’s start with the star of this collection:

Les 4 Ombres Multi-effect Quadra Eyeshadow in 288  Candeur  Et Experience


I can’t wait to use this! So pretty.

Joues Contraste Powder Blush in 320  Rouge Profond


Illusion D’Ombre Velvet  in 132  Rouge Contraste


Illusion D’Ombre Longwear Luminous Eyeshadow in 128 Rouge Brúlé


Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in 59 Rouge Audace


Rouge Allure Luminous Intense Lip Colour in 168 Rouge Ingénue


So, there you are. I already have the items that I like in Chanel Fall collection the Les Rouge Collection.

While I was in Rustan’s I dropped by NARS to pick up their Liquid Laguna bronzer. I was so lucky ’cause this was the last piece. I have been wanting to get this but I was hesitant ’cause I already have the original Laguna bronzer and I also have their Laguna Tiare bronzer. But I eventually caved in.

I also went to Laura Mercier to pick up their face illuminating powder that I have been wanting to get hold of but I got lazy. Good thing they still have my shade in stock. These come in 4 shades and the last 2 shades that’s left are the ones that I liked! It’s meant to be mine.

And like I mentioned in my previous post, I will include in this haul my latest Sephora shipment that arrived last month. Here it is:

It came with a huge powder brush!

It has bronzer, blush and highlighter and a big mirror (which I love)

Since my order were just a few pieces and there was still space in the box Maritess (my friend in NYC who takes care of my shipments in Johnny Air Cargo) put in some items that she’s crazy about and wanted me to try.

Julep Konjac Sponge in Green Tea, Charcoal and Kaolin Clay. She also sent me her favorite Clay mask the Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask

So, that’s everything in my August – September haul. I will post reviews when I get to use these products.
