Sundays are like ordinary days were you need to replenish your food stock, check the fridge for what is needed for the whole. Cooking and making sure to have new fresh and clean clothes and uniform for the whole week ahead, and also tidying up the house. That is my typical Sundays and when you can sneak a couple of hours to go the mall to unwind and buy something you can always dig into that. Reward your self! 

So we dropped by Marks & Spencer at Harbor Point Mall to get a bottle of Authograph, but decided to get a new scent instead under the same line. Marks & Spencer's are on sale right now up to 70% off on selected items. And, we did grab a few of the items that were marked down.
1- can of Authograph Homme body spray.
1- box of Marks & Spencer Organic Pure Green Tea
1- pack of Mexican Chipotle Chili & Ecuadorian Dark Chocolate Cookies
2- packs of Simply M&S Dark Chocolate Digestives

Autograph homme body spray for Php395 ($8.78) 

Our all time favorite digestives cookies from Simply M&S, we love this because of the cookie and also the dark chocolate coat. A pack cost Php125 ($2.78).

A new product for us to try. 
I got intrigue with the Mexican Chipotle Chili combined in the cookie also this pack was on sale for 50% off. Original price was at Php300 ($6.67). 
To check what's the taste of the Mexican Chipotle Chillin in a cookie we had this for dessert last night and it was bomb digz! The super nice taste of the cookie and the dark chocolate chips melting in every cooking plus the chilli taste was not that powerful, I tasted a hint of it making it so interesting in every bite. The daughter acted crazy for this cookie and I might drop by M&S again to "hoard"this one haha! I'm gonna surprise her...shhh.

This one will be for tonight, this box of Marks & Spencer organic pure green tea holds 20 tea bags in total. This cost Php125 ($2.78). A pot of hot green tea for later will be the best to end the day. I have not tried this brand before and that's the reason for the excitement hehe! 

All the items inside Marks & Spencer store gets you excited because they have everything in it, from clothing to lingerie to bath essentials and even food! 
Check out M&S nearest you and check out some goodies for you to try. 

Happy Monday all! :)




Christmas-catalogues
The holiday season makes people into either Santa Clauses – spreading holiday cheer – or Grinches. It’s a very divisive holiday in a sense that it either makes people incredibly happy or sad, alive or empty, joyous or bitter and every other polarizing feelings you can think of.
One of the things we can trace when trying to uncover this polarizing feeling is people usually don’t get to fully prepare ahead for the season. The most common underlying factor is the need and lack of money to spend for everything holiday-related – decors, new clothes, parties to attend to and of course, gifts. While the season shouldn’t be defined by anything monetary, we need to acknowledge that having a budget clearly defines whether the season will be a relaxed or stressful one.
This doesn’t mean you need to have a big budget for holiday spending either. If you follow these Santa-approved tips when doing your shopping, you will realize that you don’t have to break the bank or get into too much debt when buying for your loved ones.
1. Set a budget and stick to it.
2. Identify and segregate your budget for gifts, food, travel, parties.
3. Write your Christmas list – the list of people you want (or need) to buy gifts for. This tip never gets old. Even Santa does this – he even checks his twice. You should too!
4. If you have children and they write their Christmas lists too (but instead of gifts they would to like to give, they would writing down the gifts they would like to receive), be honest upfront that will get some things from their wishlist but not all. Be fair. If you spend a certain amount on one child, be sure to do the same with the rest of his siblings.
5. Pay in cash or debit whenever possible. This allows you to be realistic when spending.
6. Consider giving family gifts to families you are close to. For example, you can give amusement park ticket passes to your sibling’s family or a staycation from a groupon deal.
7. Consider giving homemade gifts. This tip is not for everyone, as some spend more when they try to make their own. So consider this carefully. It will sure be a sentimental, personalized and thoughtful approach to gift-giving though.
8. Create new budget-friendly Christmas traditions. It doesn’t mean that if you can’t afford a tradition you’ve been used your holidays are gone for already – create new ones. Remember: meaningful memories, the kind that sticks even after so many years, are brought about by experiences not things. Invest on these types of traditions.

Now, if by any chance you really don’t have any budget for Christmas shopping this year, don’t fret. You can still turn things around. There are Christmas catalogues with Buy Now Pay Later features you can take advantage of. You just have to open a credit account with them to work out a payment arrangement but the rest of it will be easy. Be wise when spending though. Remember this is something you still have to work for, so again, it is still best to set a cap or a budget limit on how much you are going to spend.
Surprises really comes in a most unexpected ways possible!
Last September 17 (9/17/16) I received a text from 4438 of Globe Rewards informing me that I have been given a 917 BONUS Rewards that is equivalent to Php917! For being with the telecom as a postpaid subscriber for almost 10 years, and for having that 917 prefix in my mobile number.

I didn't expected it that's why at first I thought that there was a technical error with the rewards system. But through the text I got it confirmed. Also, they have this 917 craze celebration since started several years now as far as I can remember. 


So the bonus points was add up to my current points I've earn over time. The bonus can be used up until October 17 of this year only and my previous points can be use up to March next year. 

That's why yesterday after office I decided to go to the mall with my daughter M and do some errands and try to use up some of that bonus points and see how it goes.

This is not my first transaction using Globe Rewards, I am quite familiar with it since I have used it several times before. But, last night was a bit off and a lot of time wasted.

I convinced my daughter for us to get dinner at KFC since I don't want to wait for food if we get one from Max's which offers Globe rewards for payment too. But, when I was in the cashier counter and made the transaction texting the assigned number for that KFC store after placing the order. Guess how long we waited for the confirmation text... 10 minutes!
Before the cashier can process the food order they need to receive the confirmation text that the total amount of purchase was transferred. 

We were a bit starving that time and I was thinking what the heck! I can pay that amount in cash and not subject ourselves of waiting until who knows when. Yeah, I was so impatient...but I don't find any positive thing about it. 10 minutes was kind of long to wait, I can do so much with that time. Anyway, the food was served after another five minutes of them preparing. That is why I forgot to take a photo of our order for me to use here.


photo grabbed from KFC Facebook page

Me and my daughter ordered the same P99 Fill-up box of one chicken, rice, soda and a mushroomm soup, though I got my chicken spicy.

Next stop was Dairy Queen, they also accepts Globe points for payment with a minimum of 50 points= Php50. 
We were suppose to get the DQ BOGO craze which I saw on Facebook too. But the store in Harbor Point informed the customers including us that it will resume on October 10..bummer! 
As not to disappoint my daughter because she was excited for the DQ treat, we purchased one instead. They have this free upsize for students who can present their school ID.
We fall inline and texted the code and stuff to purchase an ice cream. In my thoughts this transaction will not last that long like what happened in KFC... but I was wrong. It lasted more than the waiting time we had at KFC. 
While waiting, we left the store roam around the cinema thrice, sat and checked the store again. After a total of 15 minutes we received a text. My daughter showed the cashier store the text and she got her ice cream with the free upsize.



Okay guys don't get me wrong... some of you might think that I complain so much though I was given a reward and all for free. Yeah, I am very much thankful for that, but if you are there in the situation itself and you will wait for who knows how long... you will feel the same as what we felt last night. 
Comparing to the before transactions using Globe rewards, confirmation text can be receive within a minute or so, no time for that waiting game. I don't know what is going on with Globe rewards, but now I know what to do next time since I still have a lot of bonus points to use before it expires. 

My thanks to Globe Rewards for the bonus points! 

Are you using Globe points too in purchasing items and food? How was it going on your part?

This was my entry for the Adobo dish with Nestle Cream over at Nestle Cream Facebook page.
But this entry did not make it to the cut off time, imagine the frustration and disappointment? 
I am not blaming myself it's all my internet provider's fault! By the time I was uploading the entry PLDT acted up. The internet connection totally lost, and it was almost 12 noon which was the cut-off time. It got back after less than an hour, although I still uploaded the photo entry but yep Nestle FB admin was so strict they did not included this in the pool of entries. :(
Though it did not make it I am happy to share it to you guys. 



Creamy Adobo Mushroom Pasta with Nestle Cream

Adobo has become one of the signature dishes of Filipino in every kitchen cooking. You can have this dish any time in any season. Every Filipino family here and abroad are accustomed to having Adobo in their table for lunch or dinner. You can use up any meat for an Adobo dish but the most commonly use is pork next would me the chicken or sometimes you can mix the two. Having soy sauce and vinegar as a combination in a dish, the dish will not spoil easily specially when it is cooked properly and simmered for hours. 

A little story during College days, when I come home for a weekend to do laundry and get my school allowance, my Mama prepares a container full of Chicken Pork Adobo that I can bring with me and I can have it for several days and even share it with my board mates. It became my comfort food from home away from home. 

I don't know why Adobo dish can bring you back through time when the kitchen smells so delish because the casserole of Adobo is simmering down for hours until the oil and the soy sauce separates.

Adobo dish it is so easy to do...believe me! Nowadays Adobo dish is being whipped up and added to another dish making it more versatile and being known all over the world.
Here is my simple Adobo pasta dish you can try.

Ingredients

For the Adobo dish:
1/2 kilo- pork spareribs
8-10 cloves of garlic minced
2tbsp- olive oil or any cooking oil 
1/8 cup-soy sauce
4tbsp- vinegar
bay leaf
black pepper
pinch of sugar

  • Boil pork spareribs in soy sauce, vinegar, bay leaf and pinch of sugar in 1/2 liters of water (optional pork brought), until tender.
  • In a low heat pan add olive oil and minced garlic sautee until golden brown, add the tender pork ribs to the ban and fry a little by mixing it with the oil and garlic.
  • Add the soy sauce, vinegar from the simmer and reduce it by simmering slow.
  • Cut the spare ribs according to section, set aside

For the pasta dish:
1/2 cup- Nestle all-purpose cream
200 grams- boiled spaghetti noodles or any pasta noodles you have
pitted black olives
button mushrooms
grated cheese
1tbsp- olive oil
minced white onion
chili flakes
  • Sautee onion with oil in a pan, add mushrooms and Nestle cream bringing to boil in a low heat.
  • Add the boiled pasta combining all the cream in the pan.
  • Add slices of black olives.
Set the pasta in a plate, topped it with the Pork Adobo spare ribs slices with cheese and chili flakes to add some kick with the flavor of the cream.

The dish can serve 2-3 person and you can have some Pork Adobo left for steamed white rice pairing. 

It would be the awesome if this dish made it but I'm glad it was a success when I paired pasta and Adobo together.

Nude shade can go with anything, from outfits to make-ups and to any kind of occasion possible.
I picked up some OMG nail lacquer from the previous mall visit and look how amazing the colors are. You can honestly and barely play with it and ending up with a clean and fashionable nail colors to wear everyday.

And, guess what? for Php24.75 ($0.60() per bottle you can achieve the nude shade in polish which is so trendy today.

As I have mentioned in my other nail polish blogs, I rarely go to nail spa for my manicure and pedicure. What I normally do is to invest on the polishes and nail spa gadgets and do my own nails. 

Aside from it is way cheaper, I can be so sure that manicure tools are soley for my personal use only. 
The last time I checked-in in a ail spa, my foot was "murdered". I injured it the whole week and the psychological part of me being infected with the manicure tools haunt me for several weeks. 

Going back with these find looking nude shade bottles. From the four shades I was able to used two shades from the time I bought it.
Today I am wearing the Kopi shade in two coats plus a single coat of natural color to make it looks shiny. 


Shade from L-R
Kopi, Touch of Tan, Naked, Touch of Beige.

I will look for more nude shade color nail polish to go with this set specially not the expensive ones. 
Would you go for this nude color shades or would you prefer the bright and colorful ones? 



I always get excited when I visit Watson's store because of the variety of products to discover and also getting some deals that can really save me money.
Because it was payday a couple of days ago I splurge on some bath essentials for me to try. All the things in the photo below except for the toothpaste gets me stoked for trying it for the first time.

Above is the photo of the products I was able to purchase from buy 2 get 1 free and some 50% markdown price deal.
1- Watson's wooden body/back scrub
1- Close-up Diamond Attraction tube toothpaste
4- bars of CY Gabriel goat's milk with oatmeal soap
3- Watson's facial mask 
3- tubes Watson's Body scrub gel

My daughter M picked up these variety of facial masks with super cute packaging design.

The purple pack is a silky hydrating and illuminating facial mask with Silk Sericin that contains Amino Acids that acts like a moisture barrier. Watson's Silk Hydrating & Illuminating Facial Mask keeps your skin hydrated with a radiant complexion.

The green pack is a milk smoothing and moisturising facial mask that is formulated with whitening Hydrolyzed Milk Protein. As it claims to provide rich nutrients and moisture to your skin.

The pink pack is sunflower moisturing and brightening facial mask packed with Sunflower seed extract and Nelumbo Nucifera seed extract. As it claims to nourish skin while reducing the appearance of dull skin tone.

All facial mask are dermatologically tested as stated in the back label. This will be the first we will be trying out this mask and my daughter M is quite excited for it. I am starting to introduce her to some face and body essentials since she is becoming a teen now. 

We scored a buy 2 get 1 free facial mask of this brand from Watson's, each mask cost Php59 ($1.31). 


I am into moisturising soap, skin needs to be moisturise during bath for the skin to recover from skin harmful chemicals. I sometimes hoard for new brands to try on specially some organic stuff I can find. I have known this brand when my mother used to buy this soap brand  when I was a little kid. C.Y. Gabriel soap I know comes in a square box with pink soap inside, this time they formulated the goat's milk with oatmeal bar soap. They claim that it can moisturise and exfoliate dry skin when you use this soap. I bought two packs for the price of one, each pack costs Php75 ($1.67). 

Next product in my haul, Watson's body scrub gel in three scents.
I love scented gel soap to body scrub it brings you to that calming and refreshing feel when it lathers up and exfoliating at the same time. 
My daughter helped me to choose what scent to get and also it a buy two get one free tube. Each tube costs Php89 ($1.94) each. 
Strawberry and blueberry scent for the red tube, lavender and jojoba scent for the purple one while the yellow one is a chamomile and aloe vera scent.

Next one is this Close-up Diamond Attraction toothpaste which I bought because I was convinced by the cashier clerk when I was checking out. She mentioned that some products on display in the counter were 50% off and amongst them this toothpaste was the best thing to get. 
We got this tube for only Php52 ($1.16), because we purchased this before and believed in the product. You can check my previous blog about this brand here.  Have you tried this toothpaste from Close-up? 


Last product is this Watson's wooden back and body brush which I got for Php144 ($3.20). 
As excited for these products, I immediately opened a bar of oatmeal soap, the chamomile gel and this wooden brush and yep it gave me the freshness feel from the whole day at work. Rewarding yourself with products like this can really make a difference. 
What are you favorite products to splurge for your bath needs? I hope this blog post can gice you ideas on some items and brands you can try when you visit Watson's.
Btw, this is not a paid post, all the items in the photo were bought by my own money. And I will be updating this post once I get to try the rest of the items in the photos. 

Have a great weekend ahead.
