The Best Toiletry Organizer Ever

It's no secret that I travel a lot. Aside from the fact that I love exploring new places, travelling is an integral part of my work. Through the years I have managed to collect travel items which have helped me organize items I bring. I've always neglected my toiletries since I usually just stuff them inside a zip lock bag. well not until I saw this toiletry organizer from Beabi.

I happen to be vain have a tedious regimen that I take all of these with me:
mouthwash, feminine wash, lotion, body wash, cleansing oil, sunblock, moisturizer, facial wash, day and night toners, tea tree oil, toothpaste, toothbrush
When placed inside the pouches, my kit now looks like this:

It helps that the strap is made of garter so I do not have to worry about not being able to close it. It also has a hanger so I just hang it on the towel rack inside the bathroom and do not have to worry about my toiletries being everywhere. This just costs around PhP430 and I say it's very worth it.

Speaking of travelling for work, this is my field work kit:

Organizing Wishlist

I've been on this organizing bug and I have a couple of things I want right now.

1. Hangers
I reall need a lot of hangers because I hate having to use one for multiple articles of clothing. Oh and can I have them in pink?


2. Watch Organizer
My watches need a home.

3. Earrings and Necklace Holders
I kind of fancy the idea of having them hanging neatly just like those on accesory stores.


4. Acrylic Cases 
I need more of these for my makeup.

5. T-bars
I hate that my bracelets and bangles are just everywhere.

I have to start my hunt. and I hope to complete all before the year ends. Good luck to me!

Subspace Coffee: Artsy, Fartsy, Homey Cafe

I have always wanted to visit Subspace Coffee ever since I read about it on different blogs. I got even more adamant in visiting the coffee shop when I realized that it was in the same building as RK and Jason's condo unit. I finally got to do so when I had a "date" with my good friend Edzcel last Tuesday.


Subspace Coffee is a small, quaint and Korean inspired cafe. Basically, it is a smorgasbord of vintage and K-pop and very far from your usual coffee shop with all the art around. Let my photos speak for themselves.
Chair chandelier. Coolness.

They were even selling Korean items.

Food and drinks were priced alright. There were not much to choose from though.
Oooh Dark Chocolate and Mint!
I got myself a Tuna Wasabi Sandwich (PhP 100) while Edzel got a Farmer's Ham with Cheese Sandwich (PhP 100). I didn't know there was an option for wheat bread. I loved the kick of  wasabi.

Since Edzcel's throat was quite itchy, he just got an Iced Lemon Green Tea (PhP 125 - 16 oz.).

Meanwhile, I got myself the specialty of the house: Purple Potato Latte (PhP 140 - 16 oz). I was quite intrigued why a potato can be combined with coffee. It tasted like taro meets your coffee. It was good actually. Yummy!

I really loved this place. It's very ideal for meet ups and even studying. I think I'll be going back for the Peanut Butter Latte. *winks*

Nature Republic

You know how Koreans have invaded the Philippines? Well, not only have they surged to reside in different parts of the country, but they brought along so many of their products and services (erm digiperm) with them. There's Face Shop, Etude House and Tony Moly to name a few and recently I discovered another one while I was loitering inside The Block at SM North EDSA.

I get to be mesmerized when I'm surrounded by cosmetics and beauty products. It was so nice of the staff to allow me to take photos inside. They carry everything from beauty essentials to cosmetics to nail polish.
Hair care
Skin care
Masks and facial products
Lippies
BB creams and other cosmetics
Their array of nail polishes called my attention. It was such eye candy and a bottle only costs PhP65. Coolbeans.
Nail polish love!
There was also a freebie section. Customers were entitled to get free items depending on their amount of purchase.

I got myself bottles of nail polish for myself and for my girl friends and they gave me a free pouch for every 3 bottles purchased. I also bought a retractable lipliner because it was only PhP180.

I got myself two gift items: a BB cream and a peach facial wash.

I'm not really keen on trying unknown facial products because my skin is really sensitive (hello pimples!) and it reacts easily. However, both seemed to be getting along with my face. I used the facial wash, and I'm loving the sweet smell of it, and surprisingly I did not break out after. The BB creams consistency was also perfect. It was very easy to apply, unlike another Korean brand that I've tried which was really thick, and I did not look like I had a floating head after.

Overall, I was happy with the products I've tried. I also like the fact that the prices do not burn a hole in my pocket. I think I'll be going back soon.

End of Season Sales!

Images from everythinginbudget.blogspot.com
I've managed to score good finds from Dorothy Perkins. I love their jeans, they fit me perfectly! And with the power of the 3-month installment terms, I can shop with ease! I overheard the saleslady saying that the dress I got was the same as Kim Chiu's only hers was blue. everything was at 50% off except for the belts.

I actually had no intention of buying anything from Topshop but when I saw this high-waisted pants I really got attracted to it. Then it was love at first fit. I'm a sucker for high-waisted anything. Normally I wouldn't buy light-colored pants because I have really huge thighs but this one looked nice on me. It was on sale at PhP1500 from PhP3000. I also got the tights for 99 pesos. I got my sister one as well.

Local clothing brand Bayo was also on sale.

Bayo has always been one of my favorite Philippine brands. It's a fusion of trend and classic which is practically me. I got a classic white polo shirt and a bag.

I should avoid going to malls now if I want to have more shopping money in Bangkok. Speaking of Bangkok, I have to finalize my itinerary now. Good night everyone!
