A Pair of Eyeliner Swatches...

Now that I look at the swatches beside each other, Prestige looks more matte while Maybelline gives off a subtle shine. Maybe because Prestige is such a creamy pencil liner while Maybelline's Impact Express is a liquid liner. (Doh. haha) Good good color payoff for both liners! And as long as you let them set properly, they are practically budge-proof! Very long wearing especially if your have non-oily lids. They're both easy to use to make them peepers pop, I love them both!

Zanti, pick your poison! (Or first poison, haha) Just my two cents worth of blabbering, hahaha.

Maybelline Impact Express Smooth Felt Liner was around PHP 400 me thinks...
Prestige Total Intensity Eyeliner was PHP 325 last January

Unicorns Dream's First (Mini) Giveaway!

Stress has always been something no one wants to deal with. With word out that a vaccine against stress has been released, we can be sure that there will be a number of people, from executives to students, who will sign themselves up for it. But the shot in question raises many more questions. It is said to alter brain chemicals to induce a stress-free existence. Scary, no? But there are many other ways to avoid and reduce stress. Aromatherapy being one of them.

Lavender has been an aromatherapy favorite when it comes to calming down and reducing stress. The essential oil can be absorbed into the skin or its vapors inhaled.  Another way to enjoy this wonderful scent is to bathe with it.  A warm shower with a nice lavender soap does wonders. It's very soothing, and it's my secret to melt away stress. 

By Nature Handmade Soaps - Gentle Lavender

Take another step further by using By Nature's Gentle Lavender bar. It's a wonderful handmade soap that's natural and organic. True to Love Naturals' promise, it's eco-friendly too. Aside from the relaxing Lavender scent, Gentle Lavender also contains oatmeal, another great ingredient that heals and soothes as well as exfoliates.

Now, Unicorns Dream brings you a Mini Giveaway! Up for grabs is a full bar of Gentle Lavender and a pink Winnie the Pooh mechanical pencil :) This will be shipped to you, free of charge, if you are the lucky winner!

My Dad's Birthday Cake

My Dad celebrated his birthday more than a week ago on August 1st. That day, I was at my Dad's workplace for a part time job. Mum was at home with the two furballs. She phoned me and asked what size Mango Torte we should buy, since Dad requested Dulcelin's frozen delight the night before. I eagerly replied, "The larger one!" So she got the larger one. I got another phone call half an hour later. It was Mum again, and she was fussing about how the huge torte would not fit any of our freezers. "Not even the Fisher & Paykel one?" "Nope!" So we decided that Mum should butcher the poor, lovely thing so that it would not melt into an unrecognizable glob by the time we got home.

After dinner, I prepped the birthday cake. Since it was all cut up, how were we supposed to present it to Dad? I randomly got one of the nicer slices and put it on a plate. And since the tiny, frozen peaks of whipped cream could not support a candle, I got a tea light and lit that up instead. Voila! It was pretty funny, kinda like how some restaurants serve the birthday celebrant a sliver of cake. I'm glad Dad was somewhat amused! So we sang happy birthday, and I was the one who got to eat the Mango Torte. Milo and Coco had a little taste too.
