Trip to Quiapo

Went to Quiapo after work yesterday because *somebody* wanted to buy dogtags again. Ha-ha.

Not that I' m complaining. I LOVE going to Quiapo. But it was Friday- a big Church day- so traffic and the crowds were somewhat nightmarish for me.

Why do I love going to Quiapo?



Because I feel rich even when I'm almost broke when I'm there. Ha-ha! I like cutesy bits and pieces, or as we call it, "anik-anik."

The stuff:

Hello Kitty tumbler with straw:




I promised myself I'd drink more water. I don't drink nearly enough water at the office, and I noticed I drink more water when I'm sipping through a straw.

Cyleina Black Pearl Organic Soap:


I heard good things about this over at GT and wanted to try it, but didn't want to spring for shipping because it costs more than 1 bar of this soap.

Generic Brushes:

The ones in packs look like they're HQ. I have some doubts about that big pink one, but it's pink and cute, so I'm sold.

Baxi blushes. I was really happy with the eyeshadow, and I used the cheek tint before, so I wanted to try the blushes. The colors are so cute.



Bichun Nail Polish:

I like their packaging. The one in the middle is a really bright hot pink IRL, plus the cap/brush has some plastic balls inside. The one on the left matches the peach Baxi blush, and the one on the right reminds me of Tiffany & Co. Eye luv. Ha-ha!

In other news, I can't believe I went to Wellmanson's and did not buy any craft supplies at all! First time that ever happened. I guess it's just not a craft-inspired period for me. The pink brush came from there, though. I just didn't want to walk away completely empty-handed, LOL!

BTW, this is the first day of my three-day weekend. I don't have any special plans, because the weather's been lousy. It's too hot but it's been raining hard these past few days. I'm looking forward to watching a load of DVD's, but first I have to go to the supermarket to buy junk food. Yay!

Have a nice weekend!

  18. There are some health risk warnings about Bichun nail polishes on the net - some of them have too much lead.
