XOXO ArmCandy's Choose&Create Letter Cube Bracelets + GIVEAWAY!!!

My friend Shanne, A, and I recently stopped by a local shop called Runway to check out some of their items. The shop is a collaboration between several smaller shops, one of which is my favorite, Xoxo Arm Candy. She had a Choose & Create display table that caught my attention and naturally I just HAD to order a couple of bracelets.

This first one is their Letter Cube Bracelet which you can personalize with your name or any word you want. It cost P120 (for the first 5 cube letters + bead, additional P5 for every additional cube letter). My friend Shanne got me this bracelet to match hers. She has the same rose beads except her accent beads are the purple ones and the rest are the gorgeous hot pink color.

This bracelet I got for my sister. This cost me P125 because of the excess cube letter. I decided to use white and blue glass beads for her bracelet because its simple and elegant, just like my sister's style. It will also blend effortlessly with most of my sisters existing accessories so she won't have a hard time matching it.

This last bracelet cost about P80 or P90. You choose one "sea" themed connector plus your desired bead/s color. I think this mint & coral combination is a perfect reminder of summer (I know it's almost over but still!) and this beauty is going to be one of the 2 bracelets I'm giving away! The second is a personalized letter cube bracelet! *smiles* Are you guys excited yet?

Review : Castelbel Porto Sabonete Aromatico in Lavender Fields

Some people get offended when they get grooming products as gifts like soap or shampoo but I actually like receiving those kinds of gifts especially ones that aren't available locally. So anyway, last Christmas, my Aunt sent over a #BalikBayanBox from the US and I received this along with several other stuff. It's called Castelbel Porto Sabonete Aromatico. You can read more about Castelbel here.

It has been a month since I opened this bar and it's practically still brand new. I've been using it every time I shower and it really does calm me down. I like lathering myself with this during a warm bath after a particularly tiring duty schedule and it helps me relax a lot. It also leaves my skin really soft and moisturized especially my legs which gets really dry. I'm really happy with this product and can't wait to try out the other scent that I got which is called Pink Grapefruit!


Hello May.

I always look forward to the month of May because I'm a proud May baby. Being a Taurus has its ups & downs but I'm pretty used to it by this time. *chuckles* They say you should never ask a lady her age, but I'm quite proud of how old I am turning...

On May 12 I'll be turning 23 years old. It is a bit intimidating that I'm getting older each year but at the same time it's exciting because it means I'm a year wiser and there are more opportunities for me at 23 years old.

Last year, I celebrated my birthday with my OR workmates, family & friends. This year I'm celebrating it with the same OR workmates, co-trainees, family, friends as well as new friends and A. It's going to be a blast! I can feel it in my bones...
