Last week in Instagram - Japanese pretensions, fashionably fat, and money wisdom

When you're feeling under the weather and your face is reflecting that, one word: blush. A good flattering blush can do wonders for drained and dull skin! Throw in a bright lipstick and no one will ever know how crappy you feel...unless you're the sort of person who enjoys making other people cringe. Not necessarily a bad thing. I don't know.

Anyway, here's my past week in photos! :D

Late lunch at Watami yesterday with my mom

Sac People eco bag. Neat idea! They have tons of other designs I think.

A grandiose room in Fernbrook Gardens

Super yummy ramen from Yushoken in Molino Mall

Er, my best attempt at an outfit shot.

Bokeh blouse. Got this mini-dress on sale at Forever 21 and it turns out, it's shedding glitter. 

Cute Ferretti flats <3

Love these pumps! Also from Ferretti. They're super high but still light and stable.

This P128 Moringa Malunggay lotion (available in drugstores) smells exactly like Elizabeth Arden Green Tea. And it's lighweight! Win win.

Saw this on Pinterest and I did some googling. Yes, ironized yeast was advertised to help Depression Era and then post-war Americans gain weight. It was fashionable to be fat!

Have you guys heard about Wink Studio? It's the newest laser and hair waxing salon in The Fort. Price point is between Lay Bare and Strip - fairly affordable and the rooms are HUGE. Gotta try it soon.

Jill of Kikay Exchange's other blog, Frugal Honey, talks about personal finance and how you can grow your net worth. Read from the beginning! Earlier this afternoon, she was so kind to give a talk on the things she learned about saving and investing. Learned so much! Pressure her to have another one. ;)

The choco yema cupcake from Slice BHS is just lovely

Snaps and a yellow truck

Begging for more longganisa

A piercing and chilling stare!

Back to cute

Shot a tutorial for this look. One of my favorite ones in a while, and all while I was burning up. :P

And that's it! Follow me on Instagram if you're so inclined. How was your week?

Cool! I actually work for SAC and we have tons of other designs and we're always looking to make more innovative eco-friendly products! :D It made me smile to see you interested in our products! The ironized yeast really caught my eye, very interesting!and oh gosh that ramen looks godly definitely on top of my to try food on my next excursion!

You're blogging on a weekend! #captainobvious Hope you feel completely well soon.

Love the pictures! I've had a great week myself. Hope you get better soon :)

Those food shots stirred my appetite, and I just had dinner, hahaha! I like eating at Slice, they have this grab-and-go section where healthy veggie sticks are available. It's a nice alternative to sweet and processed snacks.

Makeup really does wonders. You don't look sick at all, just a teeny bit tired. Get well and happy week ahead!

Get well soon Ms. Liz!
I have the exact same ecobag! I guess great minds think alike? :))
We had our prom at Fernbrook Gardens; truly a beautiful place to see. I felt like a princess :)) Hm curious about Wink Studio maybe I'll check it out the next time I'm at the Fort. Btw all the food looks so yummy!
And Snaps is adorable as always :)

Japanese food is one of my weaknesses. Your instagram post should serve as a reminder for me to check out Watami. Maybe I can add this resto to my boyfriend and I's foodie bucketlist. Heehee :3

January 27, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterNikki

I hope you feel better Ms. Liz! That cupcake looks so delish!

Too many great photos! Especially that Baroque-ish room from Fernbrook Gardens, great interior design indeed! aaaand I love those ferretti shoes! They look fab as always, how much are those?

Thank you for posting about malunggay lotion...I've been quite curious about this and your feedback on the smell just got me sold...i love elizabeth arden's green tea!! How's the moisturising effects?

I-pressure ba talaga?:p

Glad you were able to make it yesterday Liz, despite having a fever and all.

It's really a good thing we can just take photos anytime using our phones. But mine is not that great, I just posted a question on what recommendations can you give for an affordable smart/android phone. :)

Wow, that ad! I guess I was born in the wrong decade, then. ;)

I'm liking the Pinterest fashionably fat post. Same advertising ploy but towards totally different ends. Amazing how the world has changed. Post-war/depression era skinny is today's "normal", a dream figure for many even. While rounder cheeks, a fuller figure, we now consider as fat! I remember my Humanities professor pointing this out while discussing Renaissance paintings. Round belly, a full figure, these were what men for the most part of human history thought of as healthy, attractive, and womanly. Those were the days! Kelan kaya magiging fashionable ulet maging "fat"? Hmmm...

Thanks for telling us as well about Frugal Honey. This time around, I like how times have changed such that gradually, there is some limelight na on financial planning and investing for "ordinary" people. Knowledge on finances (even personal), is super important, and I believe is something every Filipino should have access to (no matter how young or what the financial status is). I'm pretty sure, your readers have checked out the link. I'm hoping there'd be more talks on this too.:-)
