Non Beauty Favorites : 02




My last non-beauty favorites post was 9 months ago, so I thought it's time for me to do another one!



I'm one of those people who hoard notebooks and pens — nevermind that I don't actually use most of it hahaha I bought this Venzi notebook at National Bookstore for around P200+? A steal for a pretty notebook like this. Downside? The pages of the notebook smells like fish hahahaha for real. It's so weird. I like the notebook anyway because it's handy for work. I've also been using it to list down products I have yet to review, topics I could blog about, and most recently, things that made me happy in preparation for Friday's 10 Happy Things post!

My cousin sent me a couple of tea samples from David's Tea, but the Cream of Earl Grey has been my go-to tea during mornings. Next to the usual 'builder's tea' (strong with a teaspoon of sugar and a splash of milk), Earl Grey is my favorite kind of tea. This one is even better because it has hints of marigolds and cornflower which makes it taste creamier. I also get hints of Vanilla (which is not included in the ingredients list haha)


My Mom had some old jewelries that she didn't want anymore, so she asked me if I wanted it. With her permission, I had some melted so I can finally have the "dainty" Bar Necklace that I wanted for so long! The fact that it once belongs to my Mom makes this piece even more special! :)

I've wrote about the French Bulldog Makeup Bag on my first non beauty favorites post, but this one's a smaller, more compact version than the other one. I'm just obsessed with this print! The size of this is big enough to hold all my "touch up makeups" but small enough to chuck inside my bag without taking up a lot of space.

Triangle bras are God's greatest gift. I used to wear underwire bras every single day, and it just came to the point where enough is enough. I hate how restricting it is! Triangle bras aren't easy to find in Manila, though.. Forever 21 has some but they don't usually have my size. Luckily, I found this at Bench! Of all places! & for only P279! I wish the straps were thinner, because this looks like a training bra tbh haha But it's so comfortable, and it's padded, so good enough for me!

What are your favorites this month? :)

  1. I've been looking for a bar necklace for so long. Where did you get it melted?

    Also, have you checked out Women's Secret? They have several triangle bras but wasn't able to check of they're padded. There's one at Glorietta but I don't know if there's one anywhere else.

  2. I can't remember the last time I wore a bra without underwire. Next time it's time to buy new bras (late this year since I just bought new pairs a couple of months ago), I'm going to give padded non-wire bras a try.

    1. I think the last time I wore bra without underwire was probably in high school haha Sarap lang sa feeling! But my boobs start hurting if I wear non underwire bra for a week straight. I need the support!

  3. I got myself a Venzi notebook. I was insistent on getting the un-ruled one, so that it might spark something more creative in me. I went to three branches of NBS in one day until I found an un-ruled black one with pink edges. I've recorded my lipstick collection on that thing. Not so creative after all. :))

    Earl Grey tea is one of my favorites next to Jasmine. I find the citrus scent so invigorating.

    1. You would be surprised by the amount of blank notebooks that I have haha! Pinipilit ko lang sarili ko to write on this notebook to schedule my life =))

      I think you'd love the Cream of Earl Grey, too!
