The best Apple Pie!

Apple Pie
I had the chance to stroll along my favorite mall, Trinoma, and couldn't pass the chance to stop bu Cafe Mary Grace. I was craving for dessert at that time and decided to order their apple pie and grilled cheese roll.

OMG, I'm craving for it again while I'm writing this post!!! Their cheese rolls are to die for! Super soft and it really melts in your mouth goodness!!! I just cant get enough of it whether it's grilled or not :-)

I am not really into apple pies because I consider myself as a cake person bur this I tell you...this is the best apple pie I have tasted! The crumbs, the apples, the cinnamon and the cream topping meshed really well, giving you that unique apple pie taste that is not too sweet.

Cheese Roll
I strongly recommend for you guys to try it. Drop by Cafe Mary Grace in Trinoma in front of Nationa Bookstore and experience their heavenly desserts! Btw, they also serve salads, pasta and sandwiches.., waaah, gutom na talaga ako!!!

A slice of apple pie is Php125, the mini version is Php175, the cheese roll is php48 if not mistaken. ❤❤❤

T. LeClerc Satin Rouge Lipstick #42 Rose Divine

I am on a mission to find the perfect lipstick for everyday use. After reading numerous reviews about Bobbi Brown's Bikini Pink lippie, I have made my mind up getting it. To my disappointment, it didn't look good on me. I've searched high n low on all the corners of Rustan's (Edsa Shang); tried all lipstick testers from Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier, Estee Lauder and Guerlain but could not find what I've been looking for.

I had my lips chapped and about to bleed from all the testing and wiping and was about to give up and call it a day but thank goodness I came to T. LeClerc's stall. Yipee!!! The moment I tried thei Rose Divine shade, I knew that I have to have it in my kit :-)

I like it's shade of pink, it doesn't make me look like trying hard to be pa-girl. I like that it doesn't make my dry lips more dry unlike the NARS semi-matte lipstick. This is good for everyday wear, or when you're lazy to put on make up but want some color on your face. This shade is perfect for me as it doesn't make me corpse-y. Another thing I like is got a freebie!!! Oh yes, they gave a sample of the infamous Banane loose powder! I'm excited to put into the test once I have my LM flawless kit.

This is highly recommended! Can't wait for this Friday as me and Anika will raid Rustan's again for Laura Mercier's flawless kit 😍

Review: Tony Moly Intense Care Snail Eye Mask

In my efforts to help my dear friend Gina to find a good remedy for eye bags and those nasty under eye circles, I succumbed into trying one of those fancy eye masks from my fave Korean boutique---Tony Moly!

I was curious when I saw this on their racks. It's transparent and gel like. Not the same with the other eye masks that you'll find on the department stores.

Tony Moly has a variety of eye masks to choose from, but I am more fond of their snail repair line. I so love their snail masks and cream!

This baby costs php148, the packaging is similar to the snail mask one. You can see actual gel mask so you'll have an idea on what you'll be putting on after buying.

This is so frikkin' hard to put on!!! :-( you should have uber gentle hands to take out the gel mask and put it under your eyes or you'll end up with breaking it into little pieces. I wish Tony Moly had this eye mask in the same texture as their face mask.

I ended up with a messed up gel eye mask on my right eye but managed to not break the left one. As you can see on the pics, the left one survived with little damage. You have to make sure that you lie still and not sit down because the mask tends to slip down your face.

The sensation when I had it on was felt after a few minutes. I felt tightening on the part I've put the mask on. I think it would've been a lot better if I had it inside the fridge to have that cooling sensation last longer. There's no annoying scent which is good :-)

Would I try it again? Maybe, I was disappointed with how difficult I had to put it on but what I like about is that it has snail mucin which does wonders to the skin. I'd prolly try some more and check if it really did make some good changes on my eye area. But this is quite good to try to relax your eyes after a very tiring stint in front of the computer :-)
