A Bella’s Un-Ending To Do List

Bonjour, Bellas! It’s been a long awhile I haven’t posted in the Bella Blogs corner.  Here’s my first blog entry for the month of August 2017. Before I start, let me just ask you what are some of the things that you wanted to do before this year ends? For sure, we’ve got a lot and it’s un-ending. It may be something that we’ve done before and wanted to try again or something that we haven’t tried yet and wanted to go further just to achieve that goal.


So, here’s my un-ending list of to do’s:

France Eiffel Tower

#1 To Do: Travel in a European country (i.e., France)

Okay, I’m sure I’ve already mentioned this before in my previous blog entry which is ‘My Summer Plans for 2017’ , but I’ll mention it again here. Being an avid fan of this country, I’ve really wished to travel to France and explore everything I could, most especially the Eiffel Tower.

theatrical productions

 #2 To Do : Get involved in lots of activities

Being a person who wants to step out of her comfort zone, I really wanted to get involved in a lot of activities where there’s interaction and also, performing arts. Whether it’s joining a music ministry or even in theatrical plays/productions, just as long as I get to enjoy or do what I love and love what I do.

Lately, I’ve been attending LG (or Life Group) meetings once a week and so far, I’m enjoying every bit of it. I get to meet my friends there and interact with them.

photo shoot

#3 To Do: Engage in Photo Shoot Projects Or Activities

Modelling or posing for photo shoots has also been one of my hobbies and passion lately. Yes, photo shoots are so my thing, aside from taping for shows. Hoping and praying, that I’d get back to my usual stuff someday, Lord willing. This has been my dream – to pose as a commercial model.  Note to others: Please, don’t be a dream crusher (in short, huwag basag trip) .


#4 To Do: Get Back to Acting /Performing Arts

Yes, you’ve heard me right. I really missed all those times when I’d pack a set of specific clothes for a show, waking up early to prepare yourself, meeting up with friends , getting to a meet up place a bit earlier for the call time and the most exciting is, working with celebrities.

I’ve been praying for new projects to come, whether it’s for GMA, TV5 or another network (ABS-CBN soon, please).

product endorser

#5 To Do: Become A Product Endorser (Yes, please)

Same as the third one, I also wished to become a product endorser, whether a cosmetic product or a branded drink. Again, please don’t crush my dreams. This has also been one of my dream—to endorse at least one or two products.

There are a lot more of things that I’ve wanted to do, but I’ll end it here for the mean time.

Product Review: Flawless Skin White Therapy Cream

Flawless Skin White Therapy Cream (Php 340)
Flawless Skin White Therapy Cream (Php 340)

Hi there, Bellas! So, I’m writing a review on another product that I bought from Flawless which is the Skin White Therapy Cream. This product is more suitable or recommended for evening use and for those who have skin concerns like acne and hyper-pigmentation and it helps exfoliate your dead skin cells.

As a Bella whose skin concern is acne, I decided to purchase another product for them that’s suitable for my skin problems which is this product, aside from the SAS Soap, Tea Tree Soap, Skin Protect Gel and other Flawless products I’ve previously purchased.

Using my Flawless Pink Peso Voucher, I was able to get a discounted price of Php 100 so I paid Php 530 instead of its regular price.

So, I’ll be writing first about the product description, ingredients, direction for use , some precautions before using this product and so on.

Product Description: Skin White Therapy Cream is a lightening moisturizer which targets pigmentations from acnes and other skin blemishes. This product helps exfoliate skin which results to a brighter and more even skin tone.


Ingredients: Water, Hydroxethyl Acrylate, Sodium Acryloydmethyl Taurate Copolymer & Squalene & Polysorbate 60 Psidium Guajava Extract , Propylene Glycol , Emulsifying Wax , Cethyl Alcohol, etc.

Directions For Use: Apply this product evenly over the entire face. This product is recommended for evening use.

Pre-cautions: Use sun-block cream/gel before the sun exposure. This product is not recommended for pregnant and lactating women.

Storage: Store this product at room temperatures not exceeding 25◦C.

Second part of my discussion for this product will be what I like and dislike about this product, as well as my verdict or rating.

What I Like:  It’s whitish texture and the smooth feeling or texture of this cream.

What I Dislike: It’s a bit too pricey for a 15 gram canister of this cream.

Verdict : This Flawless Skin White Therapy Cream may be useful for evening use , only that it’s a bit too pricey. With regards to the possibility of buying this product again depends on whether I have enough budget.

Rating: 3/5

Flawless Skin White Therapy Cream is manufactured by Refinette Cosmetic Industry and exclusively distributed by Forever Flawless Face and Body Center, Inc.

That’s all for my product review on Skin White Therapy Cream, Bellas. Stay tuned for more.


Sweet Birthday Treats from Mrs. Field’s (Perks of A Bella Experience x Mrs. Field’s)

Hi, Bellas!

Sweet Treats from Mrs. Field's

I’m writing another blog entry of my coupon which is the Mrs. Fields. So, to complete my birthday celebration, I used up the Mrs. Fields Coupon wherein I bought 2 bags of cookie nibblers for an amount of Php 300 and got a free half dozen of regular cookies (Its selling price is Php 80.00/6 pieces), all in all I took home 3 bags of baked goodies from Mrs. Fields. Since my sister got 1 bag, I had 2 bags of freshly baked cookies left which is 1 dozen cookie nibblers and a free bag of regular cookies.

Baked Goodies From Mrs. Field’s

This also served as my sweet birthday treat for my family and had it as a snack. To be honest, their cookie really tasted just right. It’s not too sweet. You guys have to try their baked goodies, it’s really tasty and you won’t regret taking a bag home for your snack.

That’s all for my Mrs. Field’s experience. Stay tuned for the next one!




My Early Birthday Blessing

Celeteque Dermo Cosmetics

Just this morning, my dad and I dropped by The Baron’s Place to claim my prize from the BDJ Team which I won last time for submitting a photo collage of my takeaways from the BDJ Rendezvous held last February 11, 2017.

This long wait was finally over as I finally got my prize which is a dermo-cosmetic product from Celeteque, one of the brand partners of Belle de Jour. I consider this as an early birthday blessing for me this year 2017.

Love these cosmetics

This prize contains an eyebrow redefining kit, a long wear eye-shadow palette, lip and cheek tint and lip lacquer. Now , I have another stuff to add to my kikay collection.

I found it funny when my dad commented as I got my prize: “Sabi ko na nga ba, pampa-beauty eh” (Just as I thought, it was a beauty product.” .  I can’t wait to use this on my special day which is this Saturday.

Satisfied , I immediately took a snapshot of my prize.

Thank you, Belle de Jour Power Planner and Celeteque Dermo! Till next time again.

Perks of A Bella Experience x Flawless

Flawless evening to you , Bellas!

So, for the next coupon experience series, I used up my coupon for Flawless which is the free rejuvelite mask for a regular facial treatment. I availed this regular facial treatment earlier this afternoon for my third facial session and follow up appointment.

Flawless BDJ coupon

From their menu of services, I picked out Flawless White Regular Facial for an amount of Php 675.00 . This Flawless White Regular Facial is a kind of regular facial treatment which uses a skin lightening mask containing a plant-based lightening agent. Just like the classic facial treatment, it also includes a fractional needling therapy, which may cause you to get a bit teary-eyed throughout the session but I guarantee you that the pain is worth it.

Now, we proceed to the Rejuvelite Mask Facial . This treatment is designed to activate collagen production and boosts our skin rejuvenation for total beauty and it works by allowing the skin to absorb light energy to produce cellular fuel and increase activity of our natural body’s healing and regeneration process.

This Flawless Rejuvelite Mask Facial offers 7 different colors of visible and infrared lights in order to produce various benefits to the skin, such as firming lines, soothing skin, repairing damages, cleaning acne and blemishes, reducing redness and balancing our complexion.

These gorgeous effects depend on the wavelengths of light used, determined by color: Red and purple lights promote youthful beauty (red – combats wrinkles and increases collagen production of smoother and younger looking skin/purple – increases cell regeneration and renewal) , cyan and yellow lights are useful for healing (cyan light calms and soothes irritated skin and reduces swollen capillaries/yellow light alleviates redness and heals skin from inflammation, sunburn, windburn and other environmental changes.)

The Flawless Rejuvelite Mask Facial is being offered in 4 full variants: Flawless Rejuvelite Oil Control Mask Facial, Flawless Rejuvelite Acne Control Mask Facial, Flawless Rejuvelite Age Defy Mask Facial and Flawless Rejuvelite Whitening Mask Facial which costs Php 1,100 per session. I got mine for free since I availed of the regular facial with the use of my BDJ coupon.

And now , we proceed to the Rejuvelite Mask
And now , we proceed to the Rejuvelite Mask

If you’re looking for a quick yet effective aesthetic treatment, Flawless Rejuvelite InstaFacials is also available at Flawless Face and Body Clinic. This rejuvelite mask facial is good for Calming, Boosting, Healing and Firming effects at Php 480 per session. Each Flawless Rejuvelite InstaFacial takes only 30 minutes and is suitable for busy beauty seekers.

What I love the most is the rejuvenating feeling of the rejuvelite mask that is being placed just an inch above your face. After the session, I could say I really felt rejuvenated, as well as satisfied.


Perks of a Bella Experience x Revlon


Bonjour, Bellas!

It’s been a month long that I haven’t posted a blog entry about my perks of a Bella coupon experience since rarely do I get a chance to use up one. So, yesterday, I used up my Revlon coupon to enjoy a 25% discount off any colors or shades from their lipstick.


I chose one of their lipstick which was the Super Lustrous lippie with a shade of red (my favorite color) and availed of a 25% discount. Lippies are really one of my beauty essentials, being a kikay Bella that I am. I bought this at a department store in Robinson’s Galleria.

I bought the lippie at a discounted price from Php 350 to Php 262.50. I plan to add this to my kikay collection.  I’ve just marked another coupon off from my coupon tracker.

Till my next coupon experience again, Bella’s!

A Sneak Peek on A Bella’s Kikay Kit


Bonjour Bellas!

This is my first time to blog about my kikay kit and its contents. Being a kikay Bella, I certainly can’t leave home without my cosmetic kit or makeup as it is a must to bring it along with me wherever I go, whether parties, events, tapings/shootings or even a simple bonding with family and friends.

So, here’s what my kikay kit contains:

L.A. Girls Matte Flat Finish Pigment Gloss  (Price: P399)

Of course , no Bella would ever want to leave the house with a pale-looking lip. This is one of the must haves for every kikay Bella . We want our lips to be a bit reddish and kissable.I bought this matte lippie from L.A. Girls at Robinson’s Galleria while strolling around the mall and waiting for my sister to get her hair treatment done.

Deluxe Eyeshadow
Deluxe Eyeshadow Palette

This eye-shadow palette was just given to me by a friend as a Christmas gift last year. It comes with an eye-shadow applicator.Want to try applying  smoky eye type of eye-shadow sooner or later.

LOL Liquid Foundation Price: P299
LOL Liquid Foundation (Price: P299)

I bought this liquid foundation at LCC Mall (Ligao , Albay) for P299 . This was one of the necessities I brought along with me when I attended or watched Mr. Ogie Alcasid’s concert in Legazpi City.

Oriental Princess blush-on powder
Oriental Princess blush-on powder

Just like the Deluxe Eyeshadow Palette, this blush on powder was also just given to me as a Christmas present, but by another school friend of mine. Every Bella wants a pinkish glow on her cheek for every event.

Flawless Skin Protect Gel  Price: P290
Flawless Skin Protect Gel (Price: P290)

I’ve just recently bought this skin protect gel from Flawless Face and Body Clinic for 290 Php. Aside from wanting to have a beautiful face, a Bella also needs to protect her flawless skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun.

Shawil Stay Flawless 15-hour Primer Price: P99
Shawil Stay Flawless 15-hour Primer Price: (P99)

Stay flawless and beautiful with Shawil’s 15-hour face primer. This is the first step that Bella’s must keep in mind when applying on makeup. Face primer goes first before a liquid foundation followed by other makeup or cosmetics. With Shawil’s 15-hour face primer, a Bella can enjoy a long-lasting hour wearing her makeup.

I bought this 15-hour face primer from Watson’s at SM Aura Premier branch.

So that’s all for the sneak peek of my kikay kit, Bella’s! You can share a sneak peek of your kikay kit too! 🙂


Perks of A Bella Experience x The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf


Just recently this morning, I used another coupon from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf which is the free cake for a minimum purchase of P500. I dropped Gateway Mall and spent my lunch time at The Coffee Bean where I ordered a large Iced Moroccan Mint Tea Latte for P175.00 , Sardine and Garlic Linguine Pasta for P245.00 and a Banana Caramel slice for P105.00 thus getting a free slice of mocha cake with the use of my BDJ coupon.


With regards to the sardine & linguine pasta I ordered, it has just the right amount of spice and serving enough to satisfy a Bella’s hungry stomach. To pair it up, I also had a slice of banana caramel bread. I’d give a two thumbs up for this sumptuous meal.

That’s all for today, Bellas!  Till my next coupon experience again. Stay tuned! 🙂



Perks of A Bella Experience x Chef Tony’s


Finally, I get to use another coupon aside from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and Serenitea. I used my Chef Tony’s coupon to buy one tub of Red Velvet Cheesecake flavored popcorn at a regular price and got a 50% discount at my 2nd tub of popcorn which is the Creamy Parmesan flavored popcorn yesterday at the Robinsons Magnolia.

Since I got curious with the taste of the Red Velvet Cheesecake flavored popcorn, I decided to give it a try and purchase 1 tub of it. I was satisfied with the taste and wanted to share this tub of happiness with my family. It has the right amount of sweetness.


Til next time again in my next coupon experience, Bellas!
