I’m taking a quick pause from Home Scent Week because I can’t believe we’re soooo close to Christmas again–and also, that this blog is more than a year already! I actually even forgot the actual anniversary of this blog! Hahaha. I’ll try again next year, I guess.
- ANYWAY. A lot of my favorite Youtube vloggers have put up quite ‘informative’ posts about holiday gifts sets–a new thing I’ve sort of fallen for…I didn’t use to mind holiday sets so much, but now, with all the online Sephora resellers available here, I’m in trouble. Also, in this post, some suggestions on how to creatively bundle your presents.
- I know I said before that I didn’t like online shopping so much, but these online Instagram resellers have paved me in another direction. The ones that I like best on Instagram–in terms of selection of products and price– are: @nicolettemakeup (a lot of Urbandecay, Mac, Benefit, Lime Crime, Real Techniques, MUFE, Marc Jacobs and some Sephora sets) and @makeuphaul_ph (which sells mostly just palettes and value sets from Sephora brands).
- Lastly, some shameless plugging, some charitable totes to comfort your heart and a community’s, too! I mentioned before that I designed bags together with the big-hearted ladies of Channel Good we called The Goody Bag. We now have 6 designs, all totes for Php250. 100% of the sales will go to selected beneficiaries that were victims of Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan. We will also update you of where and to whom your donations have gone to.
- Another option is Luntian Bags, a livelihood project for the womenfolk in San Teodoro, Mabini, Batangas. I designed two totes for them, but they also have other wonderfully cute totes designed by some of my favorite local illustrators, Kara Villaseran, Apol Sta. Maria and Manix Abrera. Oh and they also have yoga mat bags!
