Glamour Box - Oh, La, La (happy)!!! - Santa's Secret (December 2013)


I have a penchant for nice deals and offers and was easily gravitated to a blog on a gift box containing surprise beauty product items.  
I decided on getting Glamour Box (GB) over BDJ Box based on reviews I have read on the net. 
Transacting was easy, I opted for online card payment and received my package 3 days after, as promised.
I was so, so excited to open my box!
The box looked elegant and expensive; and it was heavy..., I can't wait to see what is inside.

My box contains five (5) items and two (2) gift fillers.
  • Face 2 Change CC cream by Holika Holika (I was a little disappointed that it was just a sampler size - see the black tube in the picture? I haven't tried this yet.).  Full size 50ml tube, costs P855
  • Pure Mellow Multi-Puff also by Holika Holika (used for face application of cream type beauty products) - costs P265 (quite expensive for such a small face puff.
  • Only Imagine perfume by Avon - Full size 50ml costs P1500 (This I love!!!  Scent stays on and lasts for more than 8 hours. I saw it on an Avon catalogue and really costs P1500)
  • Bath Cream by The Cream Factory - Full size 768ml costs P699 (I was hesitant to use it at first, but when I finally got to try it,  I was 101% sold...)
  • Kitchen Fragrance by Zen Zest (again a sampler size) - Full size 250ml costs P250 (they sent me a choco cappuccino scent, I tried it in my kitchen - it was okay, but I am not a fan, it was a little too overwhelming - smelled like real cappuccino spilled on my rugs).
Add on fillers:
  • Skincare samples
  • Fashion Necklace by Fabulosa 

VERDICT - Not bad for P595 box subscription. 

I love my Avon "Only Imagine" perfume and The Cream Factory's "Bath Cream".  I hope GB sends more of these stuffs instead of sampler and gift fillers. 

Can't wait for my January GB!!!  More on Glamour Box, please follow this link ~


Toy-Con 2012

The visit to a Toy Congress (Toy-Con) is like entering a humongous playground cum toy store!  An entire afternoon is not enough if your are with children. 
My boys (including my husband) were thrilled with the sight of their favorite toys in extra large sizes!
Top favorites were the Transformers, the Philippine Map made entirely of Lego and Mr. Potato Head (my youngest can't resist a picture opportunity) !!!

There are plenty of activities inside, such as various live shows, raffles and games; characters' meet and greet; and sample toys for the kids (and kids at heart) to try and enjoy before buying.

CAUTION. Toys are sold at discounted prices, but still not cheap. It your kids can't be told that you are just looking, and not buying, I suggest you skip this activity and go elsewhere. 

Toy-Con is an regular event.  Check out this link for the 2013 Toy-Con schedule.
