It's not every day that I go to zalora.com.ph to browse for goodies and merchandises that I can just find on local shops in the city, but when I was lazily clicking my life away one Saturday afternoon, I found myself browsing through its beauty section. Not long after, I gathered 10 products in my cart, totaling to an amount that I usually wasn't willing to pay if I was just shopping in the mall (hello, frugal self). I didn't know what came over me when I clicked the checkout now button and confirmed my purchase, I just knew that I have to have those Human❤️Nature products I've been wanting since forever! Haha!

Zalora PH Beauty Haul ( + October Faves)

So, I confirmed my orders on that same day and was informed that my package will arrive on the 3rd of November. Much to my surprise, they arrived on a Tuesday, which is 3 days after I made the confirmation. I was seriously impressed by the service, although 1 item was still on the way because it was separately shipped. I was beyond ecstatic to start using the products, and so I did! 😄

Here's what I purchased online:

  1. LUSH VANILLA MOISTURIZING CONDITIONER
  2. HYDRATING FACIAL WASH
  3. NATURAL HYDRATING FACE TONER
  4. NIGHT MOISTURIZER
  5. YOGHURT STRAWBERRY MASK SHEET
  6. YOGHURT KIWI MASK SHEET
  7. GREEN TEA WHITENING MASK
  8. CUCUMBER WHITENING MASK
  9. AVON NATURALS ALOE VERA HYDRATION MASK
  10. GIGA INSECT REPELLANT CANDLE WITH BEESWAX LEMONGRASS (not pictured)
If you have read my previous monthly favorites blog posts, you would know my fascination towards face masks, and yes, my addiction continues hence the haul. Hehe.

OCTOBER FAVORITES

October was a whirlwind of unstable emotions and crazed thoughts. It wasn't a good month, but it wasn't that bad either. I had my fair share of negativity but I am really doing my best to bounce back and see the good things from all of them. So this post will contain all of those - the good things that I had despite the gloomy, rainy month (pun intended).

Masterchef US
I have always loved watching this show, most especially when I watch it with the whole family. So when I went home for my 9-day break last week, we all gathered in the living room every night to binge-watch season 6 and 7! It's the simple joys I've had this stressful month that really makes up for it. Thank you, Gordon Ramsay! :D

Reader self is on fire!
Last month, I finished 6 books! I read An Ember in the Ashes, Red Queen & Glass Sword, The Girl Who Could Fly, The Boy Who Knew Everything, and The Beginning of Everything! I am so happy to finally crash these titles out of my TBR list. 6 books done, more to go!!!

Brand New Key by Darby Walker and Karlee Metzger
If you are a follower of mine on twitter, you would know how much I love The Voice US. And yes, this song was sung by two of The Voice contestants during the battles and I am completely in love with it. Go Team Miley! (Go Team Alicia, too!)

Writing to Earn
I think almost all bloggers right now are contemplating on how to earn money from their hobbies, right? So when someone sent me an email regarding about this one, well, I wouldn't be the one to turn it down now, would I? And I was just so happy to earn from doing what I love, it's so fulfilling. ^_^ Read: What is blogging?
Human❤️Nature Products
Last but not the least are these Human❤️Nature products that I came to know from a beauty enthusiast who is also a close friend of mine. She introduced me to an array of organic skincare products and I have been curious ever since. Now that I finally had the chance to splurge on these, I decided to swap my most used products and go Human❤️Nature all out. I have already been using them for almost a week now and I am loving them all, especially the sunflower oil and the night moisturizer. Next time, I am planning to get the feminine wash and the toothpaste. :D

How were your Octobers? I hope you had a great one. 2 more months to go till we bid goodbye to 2016, now. Let's make the most of it and make it count!
