Things I Love Thursday, #5

Can you believe it’s been 3 years since my last TILT? 2011! Well then, let’s proceed!

1. LORAC Pro 2 Palette, about $42

 

I got mine last weekend and I have been using it every single day since. My first major palette was the LORAC Stylist (Naked, what?) so it made perfect sense to me that I would purchase the LORAC Pro 2. It seems like US-based beauty bloggers prefer the original LORAC Pro to this one, but I feel like I can do more looks with this 2nd one and it also looks friendlier to my skin tone. I’m excited for my journey with this palette!

2. NARS Audacious in Vivien, about $32

As much as I want to include so many other beauty-related things (ahem, Real Techniques Nic’s Picks set, ahem).. I promised I wouldn’t make this list makeup-centric so this will be the last beauty item! I bought this sometime last month and if only I had lesser things to pay for I would definitely get me more of these. Imagine, there are about 40 colors in this line and at almost Php1800 per lipstick, it’s not exactly impulse buy friendly. But I love it so much and it could be the best lipstick I own. I seriously thought I was happy with my MACs. The forumla is amazing, the application is great and the color is so damn pretty. I am also happy I chose Viviene among all the others colors. It’s great for every day wear but it’s also wearable for special occasions.

3. GrabTaxi Promos in Cebu

GrabTaxi has been around in Cebu since early this year but it’s only now that we’re being spoiled by promos. Last month was the -P100 fare and now until the 21st of December they’re currently offering -P50 fare which still isn’t bad. It’s so useful and I save a lot of money. It’s also so much safer to go home because my work schedule ends at exactly midnight!

4. Sims FreePlay

I have been playing this game nonstop on my iPad Mini for about 3 weeks now. It looks so good on the retina versions, compared to when I played it on my old iPhone a couple of years ago that I ended up uninstalling it. I’ve even resorted to spending money on LPs and Simoleons. Help! There are no cheats for this damn thing and there are times I just get too impatient that I end up reducing App Store credits.

5. Roommate Season 2

Roommate is a Korean variety show where they house different celebrities from different industries and age groups, put them in one big amazing house and let them do challenges. It’s sort of like a wholesome family friendly version of Celebrity Big Brother minus the Big Brother aspect and being quarantined in a house 24/7. The celebrities still go to work or whatever activities they need to do but they must go home to this house. Cameras also get to follow them when they go to the supermarket or buy things for the house. It’s so much fun! I’ve only gotten into it with Season 2 and I have been loving the new cast and the activities they do. I might be out of touch with Korean entertainment lately, but Roommate is awesome.
