Hello loves!  It had been a very busy week for me at work, with my acoustic band, with my friends, with personal errands, with events and most especially with my family.  That's why I haven't been writing last week as often as I want to.  How's everyone? Hope you're all having a great weekend so far!

This time, I wish to share some of the practical finds I got for my kids and myself last week.  First of all let me tell you a (not-so) secret about reading.  I cannot stress how important it is for me to expose my children to books or any form of reading material.  That's why even if with the mobile phone, X-box, TV and laptop around, I still manage to read to my very active and techie toddler and make my not-so-bookish 9 year-old son read and write essays.

I regularly buy hardbound or flap books for my toddler.  But since brand new books come in pricey tags, I buy books from Book Sale and at the stationery section of Pure Gold in Araneta Ave. cor. E. Rodriguez, Q.C. branch.

On the other hand, my 9 year-old who used to love reading books, showed less interest in reading when he turned 7 years old.  So when I found out that he's interested in comic books, I started buying him K-Zone magazines to still make him read.  He has a stack of these kids' magazine and I buy him every now and then, to still encourage him to read.
Back issues of K-Zone to add to my son's collection. P35.00 - P50.00
only at Book Sale
For myself, since my foundation is sagad na to the last drop, I bought a new mineral liquid foundation from Maybelline.  What's great was that it was on 30% off at Landmark's store sale!  That's a valuable deal for me.  Make-ups could be really expensive.  My practical brand of choice has always been Maybelline.

Practical Find: Great deal!  From P499.00 down to P349.30
Last Friday, I was super rushing going to Luxent Hotel for our acoustic night gig.  I was late because traffic was really bad from Makati to Manila to Quezon City.  I applied make up in the cab.  Sadly, because I was taranta already, I left my almost 2 year-old Avon powder eyebrow make-up at the backseat.  It was time to let go, it served its purpose very well.  Avon doesn't sell that product/SKU anymore, so I bought

I was able to try this brand of eyebrow powder last week too.
I borrowed from a good friend in the office when I realized mine was lost.
Lookie!  It's priced from P299.75 down to P254.75!  Great deal!
I'm a self-confessed bargain hunter.  So expect more of this kind of deals from me.  How about you?  Did you have any practical or bargain finds recently?

  1. My mom discouraged us from reading comic books, but I think comics not only encourage children to read but also draw, right? Also, ang laki ng discount mo sa Maybelline!

  2. Cool haul! I am not using liquid foundation but I go for BB cream from The Face Shop.

  3. How was Maybelline's BB cream? Meron na raw new, CC cream? I remember when bb cream was new years ago and I just had to get BRTC online and pinahanap ko pa talaga ang gingko (skinfood's first bb).

  4. The Tonka hardbound book + drawing board is a great find!

  5. Comic books for bigger babies do the trick. hehe

  6. I go for good finds, too! Ha ha... I just discovered a good blush by Nichido the other week, and it cost less than P500. I wrote about it in my brandsforgrabs blog. Kaaliw sis noh to find good and affordable products. hehe

  7. Hi @Momaye I tried Face Shops BB cream, it's non-greasy and it blends well on the face. :)

  8. Tama sis @Maan Laxa I always make it a point to buy make up during sale. Sayang ang discount din diba?

  9. I also love Face Shop's BB cream @♥ tet ^__^ ♥ ! :)

  10. Naku, I haven't heard of CC cream yet @Marie ano yun? hehehe! :)

  11. True.. mga nanay nga talaga tayo @Meikah Ybañez-Delid ! hahaha! :) I read about that blush post sis! great value din talaga ha!

  12. My friend says it is Color Control Cream, which is refined BB cream daw haha. It was developed to retain the benefits of bb plus more nourishing ingredients daw.sabi ko kc sa kanya, "Samahan mo nga ako sa Etude at try ko BB nila. Mas mura sila kaysa skinfood". Sabi nya, "Naku, ate, old na yan. May CC na ano?"

  13. It's great to know that your kids enjoy reading books. Early exposure to reading is a must too :)
    I also use in2it products like their gel blush. It looks natural when applied.
