Human Heart Nature: A Mix of Hits and Misses

Late last month, I went to the Davao branch of Human Heart Nature to buy a bunch of  products.  Why Human Heart Nature?  Well, first off, I was looking to buy affordable organic skincare products.  And secondly, I have read really good reviews about the brand’s skincare and haircare line.

So I went home with the following items:

+ Citrus Burst Spray Sanitizer, P175

+ Nourishing Facial Wash, P190

+ Nourishing Face Toner, P160

+ Sunflower  Beauty Oil, P130

+ Purifying Facial Scrub, P105

+ Soothing Aloe Strengthening Shampoo, P130

+ Soothing Aloe Strengthening Conditioner, P145

+ Avocado and Gugo Mark Intensive Hair Mask, P280

Hanging Jewelry and Accessories Organizer by Avon

When I decided to organize my room, as in REALLY organize it, the first thing I did was to part with a lot of stuff.  Clothes, shoes,  and accessories were either sold or given away.  And then I purchased a few containers, storage boxes, trays, and organizers to keep my room neat and orderly.

Avon Hanging Jewelry Organizer

One of the really useful things I bought is a hanging organizer by Avon.  It’ s a double-sided organizer with lots of  clear differently sized pockets, loops, and tabs for storing pieces like rings, earrings, bracelets, pendants, bangles and necklaces.  One side also has a mesh panel that’s great for dangling and loop earrings.

Great Buys from Victoria Plaza Department Store

Can I just say I love Victoria Plaza Department Store? For those who have no idea where Victoria Plaza Department Store is, well, it’s in Davao City. The department store is inside Victorial Plaza Mall, the oldest mall in the city. And it is my go-to place for haircare, skincare, and beauty tools because they sell really nifty items at great prices.

During my most recent visit, I picked up a number of items:

1. Babo nail clipper, P49.75 – This one’s for my vanity kit. To be honest, I don’t really need a new clipper but who can resist this one?

2. Trikeel beauty scissors, P79.75 – This is my second pair from Trikeel. My first pair broke after a year of use. Not bad, methinks.

3. Hair turban, P39.75 – This one’s great for those DIY hair and facial treatments at home. Makes me look like I’m serious with my haircare and skincare regimen. ^-^

On Blushes and Bronzers

I cleaned my vanity tray earlier and also checked every single one of my makeup items for signs of spoilage or contamination. Fortunately, everything’s in tip-top shape so there was no need for me toss anything into the trashbin.



1.  NARS  bronzing stick (Palm Beach)

2.  NYX blush (sand)

3. Victoria’s Secret BeachSexy Luminous bronzer

4. The Face Shop Lovely ME:EX (orange)

While doing the dusting and the wiping, I was mentally counting how many items I have. And I’m proud to say that I’m down to…..26! The small figure is expected since I try to limit my purchases to what I really need hence the single tube of mascara, a compact, a tube of BB cream, the 3 tubes of lipstick…

Love Picture Frame

Go to your computer, find a beautifully written love quote (or think of your own, if you want), type it out in a nice script font and print it.
