Eats | Cold Layers Cafe

There’s a new chill spot in Evia for all my sweets loving peeps of the south, and you’ll be delighted to know it’s both delicious AND affordable.

Cold Layers first opened in Greenhills around year 2011, closed shop and moved to Fisher Mall in Quezon City where they still are now. A few years later, they opened a new branch in Evia Daang Hari and is now on its soft opening and we sure are glad about it!

Let’s take a peek at their cafe! (Which is really me saying let’s eat everything on the menu, basically.)

Skincare | OST C20 Vitamin C Serum

OST Cosmetics C20 Original Pure Vitamin C20 Serum

This is my first foray into advanced skin care. If you’ve been reading my previous beauty posts, you know I’m only beginning to be nicer to my skin. (and also because I want to get rid of adult acne. P*+@~$*!#+!!

I have tried Western skin care in the past, as well products from the derma’s clinic. See below :

But I wasn’t getting close to improving my skin. (Let’s save that for another blog post!)

So, I decided to try Korean skin care this time. After all, I’m here picking my nose clueless of where to begin, and they’ve already developed a 10-step skin care system. Makes you think the ladies there have a lot of free time. Anyway speaking of a lot, After A LOT of research, and I mean a shit ton of research, I came up with products I could try. And so…

Let’s start with OST C20 Vitamin C Serum and see if it works!

Skincare | St. Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Moisturizer

I may have told you before how I used to like my face being dry and squeaky clean. I didn’t think much of skin care in the past and as long as I washed my face with soap before bed, I thought I was treating it well. If I got a blocked pore (which happened only all. the friggin. time.) I would be like “how dare you! I washed you with soap last night you ungrateful b*tch.”

For a long time, I’ve neglected the fact that Hydration is key to good skin and I used to think that moisturizers were only for people who have dry skin and live in colder countries. A little research and a few moisturizers later, I’ve proven my old self wrong. I am now a convert and have repented for  my sin against my skin. Whether you have dry skin or oily, living in North Pole or the Philippines, you. need. hydration. Drinking water isn’t enough because the skin is the last to benefit from the water we take, so our skin needs a little more boost. Trust me, your future self will thank you later. 🙂

One western drugstore beauty product I’ve tried is this moisturizer from St. Ives : the Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Moisturizer.

Feature | Fashionology Boutique and Cafe

Fashionology

Concept boutiques and cafes are becoming quite popular these days. They’re so rampant that you shouldn’t be surprised if the house next door turned into one. In fact, one just opened nearby. One that’s called FASHIONOLOGY.

And being the frickin millennial that I am, I was practically compelled to check it out and so I went.

THE DEETS :

Basically, Fashionology is a boutique and café, where you can shop, dine and play. (I literally just copied the words off their banner… WTF.)

There are currently 2 Fashionology branches : 1 in Imus and another in Molino. The one i’m featuring here is the bigger branch, the one in Molino which is a few back flips away from Jollibee Molino and Southeast Asian Medical Center. Stores open from 10am to 10pm.
