Althea Korea Haul

I'm on an alleged makeup shopping ban, but I'm running out of facial wash so off to Althea I browse. 😍 I'm currently overworked so by the time I get home, I just eat a quick dinner, shower, and lie on my bed and window shop on Althea. That has been my routine for the past week until I finally checked out my shopping cart. LOL. What can I say, it's a great stress reliever. I ordered on September 2 (Saturday), it was shipped from Korea on September 5, and I received it on September 8! It only took 5 business days for my orders to arrive and I'm so happy! πŸ˜ƒ I also appreciated that their courier Ninja Van even texted me to say that my order would arrive that day. I usually pay via Paypal, but I tried the COD payment option this time. Smooth transaction as always! πŸ’

πŸ’– Althea Haul πŸ’–

+ Aqutop Water Color Blusher (FREE)

Aqutop just launched at Althea and they're currently on Brand Day promo. You can get extra 15% off by using the code AQUTOP15. You can also get a free Water Color Blusher (worth P680) while stocks last. It comes in 4 shades, which will be given at random. I received 03 Soft Pink, which was what I actually wanted! 😍 I really just needed a facial wash, and I ended up getting free makeup, too. Weee!

My current makeup sponge is still usable but dying so I needed a backup. When I started using blending sponges to apply makeup, I tend to ignore my makeup brushes. Sponges are so easy to use, and they make my makeup base look perfect. πŸ‘

This set contains 2 waterproof eyeliner pens in 01 Black and 02 Brown. I hope these will hold up on my oily lids. Not much reviews on these, so watch out for mine to see if this eyeliner set is really a steal.

I don't need another perfume since I'm still loving my Revlon Love Is On EDT. That one suits my body chemistry really well as I've been raking compliments every time I wear it. (On contrast, I also wore Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Body Mist for some time, but it just disappears on me. No impact whatsoever.) However, I was intrigued with Red Potion since it's also a hair mist, plus it's a Chanel No.5 dupe! (Bodyholic actually duped 5 designer perfumes, which you can also find on Althea). I took a spritz of Red Potion and it didn't smell like a light body mist at all! It smells rather luxurious, and versus other body mists, this one's said to last for more than 5 hours. Excited to put it to the test!

As usual, I'm happy with my Althea haul. 😍 Get P200 off your first order at Althea here! They also now have a COD payment option. Happy shopping! πŸ’ΈπŸ’ΈπŸ’Έ

Do you also enjoy shopping at Althea? πŸ’„

When you're stuck in traffic you see all sorts of things on the road. One particular billboard I spotted struck me. It's not an ad, but a message that said...

Love your parents.
We are so busy growing up, we often forget that they are also growing old.

I AM SO GUILTY. At the start of 2017, I decided to go back to the corporate world and my work schedule has been crazy. I'm not working the night shift, but when I wake up my parents aren't home anymore, and when I get home my Dad is already asleep and I just see my Mom for a few minutes before she goes to sleep, too. Right now, Sunday is my only free day so I do my best to make it up to them by going out with them even when I just want to rest. (Don't get me wrong though, I like my job and I see it as a blessing. I just long for family time.) πŸ’ž

I'm not getting any younger, and so are my parents. When I look at them closely, I see how much they have aged and I can't help but feel a bit sad. Thankfully, they're still energetic! πŸ’ͺ

Many may associate those in their 50s and above to be slowing down in life. This mindset only hinders people from doing many things they can still achieve. A positive shift in thinking is what we all could use. As for our parents, with the age of wisdom comes new possibilities that will encourage one to never stop exploring.

I'm happy to introduce Boost, a nutritional powdered supplement drink from Nestle Health Science is specially formulated for adults 50 and up to address their nutritional needs as they age in order to get the most out of life - to live up and be their best. Instead of just ordinary milk, why not level it up?

Research shows that special nutrition may help to manage the normal changes our bodies go through during life. It is important to consider that nutritional needs tend to evolve with time and gradual changes in lifestyle, dietary habits, and metabolism often develop. That is why Nestle Health Science developed the Boost range. It takes into consideration what nutrition may be lacking in the diets of adults 50 and up, and these oral nutritional supplements can positively impact their nutritional intake to help them stay healthy and active.

Nestle Boost Energis 
for Vitality, Energy, and Strength (P595 for 480g)

Nestle Boost Mobilis
for Joints, Bones, and Muscles (P595 for 405g)

Nestle Boost Optimum (formerly Nutren Optimum)
for Immunity, Digestive Health, and Muscle Strength (P797 for 400g, P1,560 for 800g)

I'm personally not taking Nestle Boost, but my parents now are. It is recommended to drink Boost 1-2 times a day, as part of a balanced diet. It's better to have 5 small meals a day and not let ourselves go hungry because then, the body will start to store fat to have some energy on reserve. Eating one big meal for lunch or dinner is not wise because we pack all the calories in one go. Hence, Boost is perfect for your in-between meals. Just put in in your shaker, add water, and go!

Today's lesson is that as you age, your life shouldn't slow down, and neither should you. By making your own healthy choices, you can take charge of your own life. I'm grateful that Nestle Health Science understands healthy ageing really well. Live the best you possibly can and discover more of life's #possibilitieswithBOOST!

Boost is currently available in Mercury Drug Stores, leading drugstores, and selected Supermarkets (Landmark, Rustan's). For the convenience of having your products delivered right at your doorstep, you may contact
