Starbucks Frappuccino and Friends Happy Hour!

Had a blast with my sis and bro-in-law last Saturday at the newly opened Starbucks RCBC at BGC. I was told to bring 2 friends to the event because well, it's all about cooling off this summer with Starbucks Frappuccino and Friends!

Starbucks Frappuccino and Friends
We were told to come in our best summer outfits and my baby sister had this wonderful idea of our group wearing Hawaiian leis to the event. Yes, we won! Woo hoo!

Starbucks Buy 1 Take 1 Frappuccino
Starbucks Summer Berry Panna Cotta Frappuccino
Starbucks Dark Mocha Panna Cotta Frappuccino
Two new Starbucks Frappuccino variants were introduced: Starbucks Summer Berry Panna Cotta Frappuccino and Starbucks Dark Mocha Frappuccino! I looooove Panna Cotta and so I was really excited about these two drinks. We were all given small tasting cups to help us decide which one to have in full. The verdict?
  • Starbucks Summer Berry Panna Cotta Frappuccino (P170 Tall / P180 Grande / P190 Venti) - The full unaltered version tastes like berry cheesecake! I opted for this one eventually but "lightened" my drink by specifying I only wanted a single pump of everything -- frap base and syrup, specifically. I enjoyed my light version of the drink! The Panna Cotta is milky and creamy, I wanted more! So perfect for this hot summer.
  • Starbucks Dark Mocha Panna Cotta Frappuccino (P180 Tall / P190 Grande / P200 Venti) - Wow! I'm usually not so much into chocolate drinks but I was surprised by this one. It has a rich, deep, dark chocolate taste that's not overly sweet even when ordered as is! It's got chocolate chips blended in too.
Starbucks Frappuccino and Friends Happy Hour - These two drinks will be available starting today at all Starbucks stores nationwide! What's more, from April 28-29, 2015 from 2-4pm, all customers can avail of a buy 1 get 1 offer on these drinks (maximum of 2 purchased drinks per customer)! Beverage stars will be awarded to those who pay using their Starbucks Cards.

Starbucks Triple Chocolate Cake
Triple Chocolate Cake (P140 Slice / P1,350 Whole)
Of course when there are drinks, there are new food items to accompany them! Let's start with this Triple Chocolate Cake. Layers of moist chocolate cake, velvety chocolate mousse, and crunchy chocolate paste praline make up this decadent cake. I thought it was divine -- rich and not overly sweet.

Belo Beauty Duo – Belo Essentials Whitening Deodorant and Underarm Whitening Cream!

Dark underarms have always been a problem for most of us. Like me for instance, I'm pretty fair in terms of skin color but somehow, my underarms are slightly darker than the rest of me. I read somewhere that waxing and plucking hairs cause underarm skin darkening -- I do those a lot! How I wish I can lighten my underarms so they match my other body parts.

Belo Essentials Whitening Deodorant Review
Belo Essentials has come up with a power-packed #BeloBeautyDuo to fight underarm skin darkening -- Belo Essentials Whitening Deodorant and Belo Essentials Underarm Whitening Cream.

Belo Essentials Whitening Deodorant Review
Safe to say I got the complete Annederarms arsenal!

Belo Essentials Whitening Deodorant Review
There were a total of five (5) products in my kit:
  • Belo Essentials Whitening Deodorant Roll-On Shower Fresh 25ml (P54.75)
  • Belo Essentials Whitening Deodorant Roll-On Shower Fresh 50ml (P92.75)
  • Belo Essentials Whitening Deodorant Spray Shower Fresh 140ml (P184.75)
  • Belo Essentials Underarm Whitening Cream 40g (P349.75)
  • Belo Essentials Whitening Deodorant Roll-On Original 25ml (P54.75)
  • Belo Essentials Whitening Deodorant Roll-On Original 50ml (P92.75)
Belo Essentials Whitening Deodorant Review
To effectively fight underarm skin darkening, you need a combination of products -- the Belo Beauty Duo for day use and night use. My weapon of choice for the daytime? Belo Essentials Whitening Deodorant Roll-On. It comes in two scents: Original and Shower Fresh. I prefer Shower Fresh because it really does smell shower fresh, applying it makes me feel as if I've just taken a shower. Original has a mild floral fragrance.

50% off SM Woman and GTW at SM Ladies Night!

I just had the most awesome shopping experience at SM Makati last Wednesday. It was the very first SM Ladies Night and WOW... everything with the SM Woman and GTW (Girls Teens Wear) tag was 50% off from 6-9pm!

SM Ladies Night
There will be 5 SM Ladies Nights in all, the first was held at SM Makati last Wednesday. There are 4 more Wednesdays to go and my guesses as to which SM Department Stores will hold it are:
  • SM Megamall
  • SM North EDSA
  • SM Mall of Asia
  • SM Aura
The only way to find out exactly when and where the next SM Ladies Night is via the SM Woman FB Page. I'm stalking the page myself because I want to have a go again!

SM Ladies Night
So anyway, starting 6pm every Wednesday EVERYTHING SM Woman and GTW drops to 50% off. The non-SM brands like Paperdolls, For Me, etc. have racks that are 50% off too -- you'll know because these racks will be marked with a pink SM Ladies Night sign even BEFORE 6pm. How cool is that?

SM Ladies Night
You can find ALL your clothing essentials at the women's section of SM Department Store -- resort wear, sleepwear, formal wear, corporate wear, casual wear... wow, I was blown away.

SM Ladies Night
Happy shopper here! I was able to buy 5 tops for only P1,700!
