Picks of the week


We've now entered the last half of September and I seriously don't know how in the world that happened. It all just came so crazily fast! Thankfully, Dubai's weather has improved a lot these days and I'm so excited to fully embrace the colder season. You have no idea how much my scarves and cardigans have been raring to come out of the closet. It's been a long time coming! Few more weeks and we'll finally be on our flight back to Manila vanilla again. My brother is planning to also go on a trip to Singapore with mom and I'm really itching to join them. It's going to be so much fun for sure.

Speaking of fun, I just want to share with you the things I've been loving this week. This short list is so random I know, but I seriously couldn't recommend these awesome stuff enough.

First on my picks of the week list is Harry Potter and The Cursed Child book by John Tiffany and Jack Thorne based on J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter book series. This book is actually the script to Jack Thorne's new play which premiered in London's West End last July. To be honest, this book is not at all comparable to any of Rowling's books since it's not written by her. The writing is different, the look and feel is different, and even some of the characters are different with totally new ones too. But eventhough I struggled in finishing this book, I have to say that I still thoroughly enjoyed it. It's nice to revisit some of our beloved characters and see how they ended up with after the last book. Then again, I have to admit that seeing the play would have been a lot better experience for sure than reading this book.

My hair and scalp are on a temporary break from harsh shampoos and products with my current combo of Burt's Bees More Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner in Baobab scent. These hair products are made of natural ingredients and also gentle on my scalp and hair since they don't contain sulfates, parabens, SLS, and phthalates. The shampoo doesn't lather very well, but it cleanses the scalp really well and I love how moisturized my hair feels without feeling greasy after I used this with the conditioner. I've always been a huge fan of the brand Burt's Bees and this shampoo and conditioner combo is a refreshing addition to my all-time shower favorites.
These two hand-painted ceramic small bowls are some of the many souvenirs I got from our last trip to Morocco. It wasn't an easy feat bringing these fragile beauties back with me to Dubai, but I'm so glad I did. Aside from adding visual pizzazz to my vanity table, these also serve as a great and unique catch-all for my small accessories and what-not's.

My love affair with liquid lipsticks intensified even more with ColourPop Cosmetics. My sister gifted me with a box of these goodies last month for me to try and I am so loving them all especially the Ultra Satin Lip collection. Pictured in here are Ultra Matte Lip in the shade Tulle and Ultra Glossy Lip in the shade Tight Fit - Metallic Finish. They are very inexpensive compared to the other liquid lipsticks available in the market, but the quality is at par. Their gorgeous  and wide color selections are also impressive. ColourPop recently launched their Fall shades and I managed to snag Viper, Times Square, and Love Bug all for free during my last haul. Win!
