Missha Goodies

In my previous post, I mentioned that my sister went out of the country for a short vacation right? But I forgot to tell you the goodies she brought home with her for me. She told me that when she was at a mall she saw a huge Missha store and because she remembered me repeatedly telling her before that I would love to try Missha BB creams because I've been hearing a lot of great reviews about it...she immediately went inside and explored the store...she told me that there were a lot of BB creams to choose from and she didn't know where to start looking hahaha! So anyway dear lovelies, here's the Missha goodies she got for me. :)

Missha Perfect Cover BB cream in No. 23 ♥ The Style Lucid Nail Polish in RD04 ♥ Missha BB Boomer sample ♥ Time Revolution Immortal Youth Serum sample

I will have to try the product first before I do a review for you....I usually try the product for 2-3 months before I could do a review just to make sure the product really works and I usually give my skin the so called " transition/adjustment" period. :)

How bout you Sweeties, have you tried any Missha products already? And if yes, how was it? Please do let me know as I love reading your inputs :)

Sweet Day to you All!

Do We Really Need to have a Good Credit Score?

If you are one of my loyal readers, most of you know that I work in a BPO company for almost nine years already and I have transferred from one department to another, you all know that it is very stressful working in call centers and from all of the departments that I had worked with, I can definitely tell you that the most challenging role was when I moved to Fraud department. For those who do not know what we exactly do here, we simple handle any type of calls related to Identity theft, Stolen Credit cards and unauthorized charges; all these three all leads to one thing, it could give you bad credit.  I think people should be very wary with their credit rating, because it plays an important role in our finances. Companies these days would check a person’s credit scores first before they approve your credit cards, loans, just like Mortgage companies; they want to make sure you have the means and ability to pay. Even in terms of employment, most Employers would check the applicant’s credit scores and use it as a basis in their assessment.

People should keep it in mind that keeping a good credit score can help us keep track of our finances but I do understand that most of the time we tend to be very busy that we forget to check it regularly, but the good thing is that there are a lot of sites that offers free credit score that would help us manage not just our credits but also gives us online security against identity theft. 

I hope I was able to help you understand the importance of having a good credit score. I guess that is all for now!

Have a beautiful week!

Sweet Day to you All!

Moon Cake Festival

Today we are celebrating Mid-Autumn Festival which is also known as MoonCake Festival or Chinese Lantern Festival. This holiday is celebrated by Chinese and Vietnamese families. The festival is usually held every 15th day of the eighth month in the Chinese lunar calendar so that would be around September or October therefore, this year it is today, September 12. However, in Hongkong, they officially celebrate it the day after the Festival which would be tomorrow.

Here in the Philippines, the festival is very popular among Filipino Chinese families. One way of celebrating this festive holiday is to have a family and friends gathering, play the famous Dice game and eat mooncake afterwards.  But don't ask me for the details of the dice game since it has been more than 10 years since I last played the game, but I guarantee you it's pretty fun and exciting. :) But anyway, what I truly enjoy during the holiday are the Mooncakes!

Mooncake is a Chinese pastry wherein it has a thick yummy filling of lotus seed paste, then in the middle part inside it contains a yolk of a salted duck eggs which symbolizes full moon.

A few weeks ago my sister went to Hongkong for a short vacation and I am happy and pleased that she bought home some ♥Mooncakes♥
♥ Gold Leaf Moon Cake ♥
Mini White Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake with Whole Egg Yolk and Gold Foil
Mooncake L-O-V-E ♥♥♥

How bout you, do you like Mooncake? Do you celebrate it too?

Happy Mooncake Festival, Sweeties!

Sweet Day to you All!

Blog Awards

Beautiful Monday Morning Sweeties! Today I would like to share a few blog awards. These are long overdue and I am sorry its been too long before I was able to blog about it, but hey, better late than never, right? So, without further adieu, I present to you my blog awards...tada!

I would like to thank Nancy of The Dark Side of Beauty and Des of Chic & Sassy Homemaker for awarding me these blogger awards, I really do appreciate having this award and I am an avid follower of both blogs that is why it is an honor to be awarded by two great bloggers.

I got two Versatile Blogger awards from both gorgeous ladies.
Both awards - Stylish Blogger and One Lovely Blog awards given by Des.

Now, here's the fun part. Do not forget to mention the person who gave you the award and of course please link her/him back. In accepting these awards, you have to share 6 facts about yourself and share these to other bloggers who deserves to have these awards. 

1.  I super Love dogs, in fact I have 8:
 Roxy - She's a Rottweiler and she is the sweetest of all and she only listens to me bwahaha!
    Duchess - She's also a Rottweiler and she is Roxy's little girl but I guess we can no longer say she's little LOLs. She's the curious one, whenever you touch something or you do something she will always snoop around the things you've touched when you're no longer around.
Cotton - She's a Japanese Spitz and she is so white as a cotton that is why we called her cotton. 
   Snow White - She's half Japanese Spitz and half Maltese but she looks more of a maltese. She's the energetic one, she always jump, run, jump, run, jump and so on...She just can't get tired.
   Bubbles - She's a Lhasa Apso and I call her the Jumper. She jumps a lot and she can jump really really high..and she loves to eat Cornflakes and roasted chicken. 
   Chico - He's a half Lhasa Apso and a  half Shih Tzu. He's the jealous and moody one. He can really be sweet but he wants to be the only one who have your attention. If you play with the other dogs, he'll get jealous and he will just sit at the corner of the room facing the wall, even if you call him he will just pretend to not hear you at all. 
   Ernie - He's a mongrel (askal) but he's the OC one. He doesn't like to get his paws wet but he loves to take a bath, he is a very picky eater too. He loves to eat dog food, rice and  sinigang. He hates carrots and cabbage. 
  Mallows - She is the newest member of the family. She's only a month old and she is Bubble's little pup. She is a mix breed of Lhasa Apso (Bubbles) and a Shih Tzu. She's they playful one and she loves to lick feet and slippers. Her name is mallows because she reminds me of chocolate mallows. 
I wish I have all of their pictures to show you but I don't have them saved in my PC right now. :( I only have Chico and Bubbles) I  will just show it to you all some other time, okay? 


2.  I am a huge Old School Rock and Roll fan. I guess it is because of Daddy's influence. He is a rocker! \m/

3.  This is going to be a big revelation: Way back in Highschool I was a CAT Officer. I know I don't look like one and if I'm going to tell some of my friends who didn't know me since high school I know they will NEVER believe me.  Sorry guys but I really have to cover my face with an apple since I really look hideous with the uniform...I seriously hate it. I can't believe I have a copy of the picture too! I guess I have to burn this afterwards LOL

4.  I love anything Corn - Corncob, popcorns, kernel corns...I love them! But popcorns are my favorite :)
5.  I cannot drive wearing slippers or any flat shoes, I need to wear anything with heels probably around one inch and above but not lower than that. 

6. Some people are hooked on watching Asian Dramas but for me its different --its watching Anime. I am a huge anime fan. And my top two favorites are: Naruto and Bleach. I never fail to download their new episodes every week...they're really addicting. I even have a collection of Naruto action figures hihihi.

And now I am passing all of these awards to the following great bloggers:
♥ Aileen of Fruitful Voyage
♥ Angel of  Angelamhiere's Little Heaven
♥ Sugar of Whimsical Whatnots & Whatever
♥ Locke of My Beauty Love
♥ Dang of NeuroChiq's Nook
♥ Sey of 14th Street
♥ Maggie of A Beautiful Rhapsody

So there you have it ladies! You all deserve it. Enjoy! :)

♥hugs and be safe♥

Sweet Day to you All!
