Branded Fragrances and Cosmetics up to 70% Off

16 09 2009

A colleague just informed us that branded fragrances are being sold in a kiosk inside the Pacific Star.  So after I settled my bill, I checked it out.

So I’ve learned that it belongs to Luxasia, Inc. , which is owned and managed by socialite Mia Nolasco-Cuenca.  The company has been making  international brands of fragrances and cosmetics available in department stores such as Rustans.

So ladies and gentlemen, you can start your holiday shopping now.  The kiosk will stay until Friday, September 18.  By the way, payments can be made by cash or card.


Further Reductions at Mango

3 08 2009

As always, Friday has been a time for gimmicks which include shopping (or window shopping), or watching a movie, or going to the spa and dinner, as I’m not a party-goer or bar hopper.  It’s not really a regular schedule but what I’m saying is, whenever I and my friends plan to go out, it’s on a Friday so we can stay out late. 

So last Friday, after our seminar, I and a colleague decided to stroll around Greenbelt 5.  As expected, I didn’t go home without at least one shopping bag in hand.  I wasn’t able to resist getting myself another pair of jeans at Mango.  I was not really expecting to spot a “good” item as I already had two some weeks ago.  At Php995, the classic jeans was a “good buy”.   So the shop is offering further reductions.  Up to when?  I didn’t ask.  My friend also got a pair jeans and a nice blouse for a just little over Php2K.

So go, check out girls!

BS Lip and Cheek Stain Exiting Soon?

23 06 2009

Lip and Cheek Stain

Last Saturday, I and a colleague were strolling around Robinsons Galleria when I noticed Body Shop still on sale.  Was the anniversary sale extended again?  I wondered… As we got closer, I realized the items on sale were different from the last time, as far as I can recall.  One item on the display window piqued my interest so I asked my colleague if it was ok to check out the items. 

While my buddy was trying a free make-over, I expressed to the staff my liking for their Lip and Cheek Stain.  According to her, this favorite item of mine will be phased out  soon co’z it’s not selling very well in other countries unlike in Manila.   If ever, this will be the second Body Shop product I patronize that is exiting the market, the first was the Tea Tree Oil Pressed Powder.

Shopaholics at MNG

23 06 2009

I didn’t go straight home last Friday as earlier planned.  Last minute, I was invited to have dinner by a friend.  Since I so wanted to eat pizza that day, I said “yes” but I insisted that we just have dinner, pizza at that, no extra strolling. 

We were considering Domino’s Pizza in Makati Avenue but since we were not sure about the parking area, my friend suggested that we go to Rockwell instead.  I was quite happy co’z I know I’ll be able to drop by Royce’.

Since we were not hungry yet, we checked out some stores first.  My friend spotted Mango with the signage “Sale up to 50%” and she suggested that we get inside hoping to get some good items.  I told her that the last time I checked out Mango during sale, I wasn’t successful co’z the sale had long been running.  As we got in, you can see the excited ladies rummaging through the shelves and racks.  Seemed like the sale has just started and I was right.  There were still a lot of nice items co’z the sale just started a day before.  So went the impulse buyer in me, again…

I just wanted a nice top but I was able to get a nice-fitting jeans, too, for a discounted price of 50%.  I almost got 2 blouses but I thought it was so impractical as I already got myself a black one last weekend aside from the 3 or 4 I took home during the first week sale at Festival Mall last month.  As for my friend, she got herself a cute blazer/jacket and a pair of jeans, too.  She also wanted another top but she had previous purchases from Memo a few weeks ago.  So for lesser guilt….

For the girls and other ladies out there, you can still catch the sale as there’s no definite end date yet.

Body Shop Sale Extended

15 06 2009

Body Shop

Girls, grab your shopping basket before the day ends co’z today is the last day of the Extended Sale at all Body Shop outlets.  Get as much as 70% discount on your favorite stuffs.

Speaking of favorite stuff, mine is the Lip and Cheek Stain.   Since it was launched here in the Philippines, I never ran out of stock of this item.  I always have at least 2 pieces of this fabulous beauty essential in my vanity drawer.  How’s that?  Well, I just never missed to purchase this item whenever it’s on sale.  I got myself 2 pieces last month when it was offered at 40% off.  Now, that makes 4 in my drawer.  So, you know…

What make this item a really “must-have”  for me?  First is the price.  At Php795, it costs a little cheaper compared to other brands like Smashbox, Mac and ModelCo.  And if you’re regularly checking out Body Shop, you should not miss the sale events that usually include this stuff offered at 40% off or “Buy 1, Take 1”.  Isn’t that hot?  Another thing I like about this stuff is the natural glow it gives my cheeks and with just a little powder and lip color, off I can go….
