Innisfree Haul {Skincare Must-Haves}

Annyeong! ^_^ Yay! Oh goodie, another Lee Min Ho Innisfree post.

My Skin care Must Haves and Must Buy in Korea. Innisfree Bija Anti-Trouble Facial Foam, Skin, Lotion, Perfect 9 Repair Serum, Eco Safety Perfect Sunblock and some freebies #Perfection #Happiness ^_^
Here's another Seoul-ful haul of my basic skincare must haves, which are from the Innisfree Bija (formerly Jejubija) Anti-Trouble Skin Care line. I devoted so much to it lengthily here and here too.

Innisfree Perfect 9 Repair Serum. After finishing dozens of trial packs/samples, I'm sold. I just had to get the full size (58000 KRW or Php 2450+) 
I'm loving the Innisfree Perfect 9 Repair Serum. It's lightweight, plus it leaves a silky feel and finish. It boasts of precious 9 plants from Jeju Island (Oh Jeju, I hope to visit soon!), which offers aplenty of age-defying benefits. Love it!

Just in case you're new here, before it's Skinfood, Skinfood, Skinfood, then I met Lee Min Ho err Innisfree, and fell head over heels in love.  Fangirl aside, Innisfree skin care lines are well suited to my skin type, plus are generally well priced (when in Seoul). I stick by the Bija Anti-Trouble Line, and add a serum or cream for reinforcement, the more, the merrier! I will try my very best to do a full review of the Perfect 9.

Innisfree Eco Safety Perfect Sunblock SPF 50+ PA +++ for 12000 KRW. 
I'm well aware of the need to apply sunscreen, while most of the bb creams offer protection, it's still best to reinforce it. I was also able to try out sample packs of this. I like it because it's not as greasy plus it doesn't leave a white cast. It doesn't feel heavy to layer it with makeups afterwards. Plus it offers a good full spectrum protection. More importantly, it didn't give me breakouts, so a full size replenishment was in order. Oh yes, I hope to be back to do a full review. ^_*

I usually asked friends to get them for me in Seoul. Last time, I got them in Hong Kong (lucky them, Innisfree is in Hong Kong). Or it's via my fave Korean e-Bay seller, BHappywithme. This recent haul was c/o my friend who went to Seoul. Kamsahamnida chingu!

Innisfree, please come to the Philippines (and bring Lee Min Ho along). Cheers! ^_^

Coca-Cola #ShareaCoke Philippines {Personalize your Coke}

Happiness. Open. Share. Coke is it!

The phenomenal Share a Coke campaign that has taken over 50 nations by storm is finally in the Philippines! Yay! ^_^ The Coca-Cola Philippines #ShareaCoke launch was held yesterday at the Mega Fashion Hall in SM Megamall. 

Share a Coke Booth
Leading the celebration at the Mega Fashion Hall in SM Megamall was Jasmin Vinculado, Marketing Director of Coca-Cola Philippines, who also headed the first ever Share a Coke campaign in Australia.
We brought Share A Coke to the Philippines with one goal – to share happiness. Sharing a Coke is a simple yet fun and exciting way for us Filipinos to be able to show our appreciation to people who make us happy. For mothers who cook our breakfasts every day, for the fathers who drop off their children to school every morning, for the friends who listen to our never-ending problems, for the manang who serves our food in the cafeteria, for the manong who opens the door for us and wishes us a great day with his bright smile, for everyone who has shown us kindness—we would like to share a Coke with them simply because we know that happiness is made more real when shared.” Vinculado enthuses.
One of the event’s highlight was also to celebrate the long-standing partnership between Coca-Cola and the country’s leading teen clothing brand Bench. Mr. Ben Chan graced the event (and I took a photo with him ^_*, I just couldn't resist, he's such an admirable person plus Lee Min Ho had a photo with him, so me too! Check out my Instagram @chicsassymom *LoL). I have to commend him, as always, he was very, very prompt!

True to the essence of the campaign, to show the company’s appreciation for all the years they have worked together, Jasmin Vinculado of Coca-Cola Philippines shares a Coke with Ben Chan, Chairman and CEO of Bench. 
This was followed by a Bench fashion show, where models clad in stylized Share a Coke shirts showcased their personalized Coca-Cola bottles and cans on the catwalk. 

Coca-Cola Happiness Ambassadors Joseph Marco, Julia Montes, and Enchong Dee gave the audience a blast by sharing personalized Coke cans bearing terms of endearment “Crush,” “Hottie,” and “Love” to some unsuspecting guests. Joseph Marco also gave out a Sunflower. While Enchong Dee shared balloons. ^_^
Celebrity Brand Ambassadors joins Jasmin Vinculado of Coca-Cola Philippines,  Coca-Cola FEMSA CEO Juan Ramon Felix, and BENCH Chairman and CEO Ben Chan. 
It was a great day to share a Coke! The event was hosted by Robi Domingo.
After the event festivities, it's time to own a personalized Coke Bottle... share it, dedicate it! #Sweet

I had two bottles. Since we're expecting ours, the fan girl in me kicks it, so I had a bottle dedicated to @JGShock (Lee Jun Ki/Lee Joon Gi). I wish he'll know about it! Hah. ^_^ #FangirlForever
The Share a Coke booth allows you to create your unique 8-character name, subject to terms and conditions. 

Coca-Cola is a brand and a company that is close to our heart. A couple of months back, hubby brought home a can that says #ShareaCoke with Gwapo (handsome). I couldn't agree more with it. ;-D Just imagine having your name on a Coca-Cola bottle, for sure, it's a bottle/can that will find its home to the display cabinet for life. Haha. Plus, I love, love personalized stuff, with labels and what have you...proprietary much. So we're all so looking forward on having our names or other form of endearments on a bottle too. 

Oh, which reminds me, do you know that you can have Coke delivered to your home on a weekly basis? I will tell you more about it soon. Meanwhile, we can't wait to build our collection of personalized Coke cans and bottles. 

Indeed, sharing has never been more fun and exciting with a personalized Coke can/bottle. 

More than the personalising factor, it is the sweet gesture of sharing and dedicating that makes this more meaningful. It is said, happiness is only real when shared, or happiness is best shared. ;-D Call it marketing brilliance, but as always, Coca-Cola continues to outshine itself with its heartwarming campaigns year on year .

Start stashing your collection of personalized Coke packs available in sari-sari stores, convenience stores, groceries, supermarkets and even vending machines nationwide. Check if your name is one of the several names already printed out in the market (Coke Cans, Bottles) by visiting the official site.  It directs you to a Facebook application that lets you "Find a Name", and a whole lot more. 

You may also drop by Share a Coke booths in supermarkets, malls and schools to have your own personalized Coca-Cola printed in an instant. Check out the links below for the latest schedule of the Share a Coke Bottle Printing Booth.

My Photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
