Gastronomic Adventure : Hole In the Wall

Last week, we went to try Century City Mall's Hole in the wall. It's located at the 4th level of the mall, and simply put, it's a very nice food court full of good selection to choose from! I super love the ambiance, the food, and the music haha! I think they were still on soft opening, so most of the time, servers would give you surveys to assess your eating experience.



For our main meal, we chose to eat Badbird's Dirty Rice plate, which consists of their bestselling chicken, kimchi, and "dirty rice". Yum! 

I also tried Spruce, finally! Just say fresh fruit/vegetable juices, and I'm sold. I tried Ladyluck simply because beetroot is part of the ingredient,along with other fruits and veggies, and the taste is pretty awesome. 

For our dessert, we went on and tried the cookies from Scout's Honor :) We tried six different cookies, and our ultimate favorite would be the 1969!




Overall, it was a great dining experience. It gives a nice twist to  the idea  of a classic food court, and you'll have  many great food selection to choose from!

Current Favorite Beauty Products


Most of the time, I am guilty of spending too much time just reading beauty blogs and magazines lol.  It's actually quite therapeutic,trust me. Because of this, I am constantly on the look-out for good beauty products that works for my skin. But, at the same time, I also really make sure to read reviews thoroughly  or to try out a product first before buying. Let me share with you some of the current beauty products that I've tried lately and fell in love with.



KIEHL'S ULTRA FACIAL MOISTURIZER
I used to have such oily skin back then! As in parang pwede nang kuning pangluto yung oil sa mukha hehehehe. I used to complain a lot about how oily my skin was, and my mom kept on warning me that I'll actually miss the oiliness once I get older. 
 I've  used the herbal moisturizer from Kiehl's for a long time, but then I was itching for change when I started to notice that my skin became drier recently, especially in the cheeks area. This is primarily because of some medication I'm taking, so my skin has become more of a combination type ; oily forehead, drier cheeks. Oh boy,did I actually miss the oiliness LOL. I was so taken aback and didn't know how to handle my dry cheeks, since I was so used to the whole oily/acne-prone regimen.

Thankfully, I was able to get my hands on this moisturizer! This moisturizer is one of the best-sellers when it comes to Kiehl's, also known as a counterpart for Clinique's Dramatically Different moisturizer. I've been using this for a few weeks now, and I'm really happy with this moisturizer, so far. 


BENEFIT'S BIGGER THAN BB 
This is what I use when I would be commuting since I love it's matte finish! This BB is also lightweight, and has just the right amount of coverage for everyday use. Also YAY for SPF 35! Apply this after sunblock :)

JUICE BEAUTY ANTI-BLEMISH CLEARING SERUM
I purchased this product a week ago, after hearing raves from the thebeautybeeblog. I love love this! It's organic, and it really helps eliminate blemishes, especially when its the time of the month again. Definitely recommending this if you struggle with blemishes, just like I do! :)

MAC MATCHMASTER FOUNDATION
A graduation gift that I started to use on my graduation day! Until this day, I am still a fan of the MAC Studiofix Powder, but this is another good foundie from MAC. I was initially apprehensive to try this foundie since it is in liquid form, but the MAC SA recommended this to me, and I fell in love with it! It's actually pretty lightweight, and it works well with my skin. I just use one pump of this and its already enough for my entire face. Also, I didn't get any breakouts from using this product. :)

Much love,
Nikki

Weekend Playlist

Just like many people, I do find joy in finding new songs to listen to, although these songs may not be literally new or freshly released. There is a certain happiness when you get to listen to a song you've been ignoring in your iTunes library for so long, and finally have that eureka moment once you get to listen to it. Although most of the songs here are those I've stumbled upon while searching youtube, the feeling of making yourself familiar with a good song is a sure wonderful experience. Here's my playlist for this weekend, which have been on repeat since yesterday. :)

1) Lucy Rose - Our Eyes
2) Lucy Rose- Shiver
3)  Imagine Dragons - Smoke and Mirrors
4)Justin Tebbutt- The Breach
5) IYES- Simmer
Hope you like it!
Much love,
Nikki
