Review: Sonia Kashuk Breast Cancer Awareness Proudly Pink Brush Set

*Phew* What a long name for a brush set, but I’m sure you ladies will be giddy about this! Make sure you read ’til the bottom of the post for an announcement. 🙂

Sonia Kashuk Breast Cancer Awareness Proudly Pink Brush Set

I’ve been constantly talking about how I’m just learning how to apply makeup properly. My eyebrows are still my major struggle, but in the past few months, I believe I’ve improved a lot in my makeup application. After watching numerous videos from my favorite makeup gurus (local and international), I learned that one of the most important makeup tools I need to have is a brush set. Early this year, I was convinced enough to buy me a brush set. However, I don’t like bringing some of them with me ’cause of hygiene reasons. I’ve been planning on buying a new set for traveling, so imagine how glad I was when House of Flair, one of my top online stores where you can pre-order items from your favorite US stores, sent me over this Sonia Kashuk Breast Cancer Awareness Proudly Pink Brush Set to review.

White handle, pink bristles - LOVELY!

I must admit, I’m not a big fan of pink, but when I received this brush set, my kikay, girly self emerged and almost squealed in excitement. “Pink brushes!!!!”, she exclaimed. 😀 And when I posted a photo of this on my Facebook wall (personal), almost every lady I know liked and expressed how much they wanted it.

Save Money when Buying a Car

If you want to buy a new car, or sell your car with Auto Trader, but you’re worried about the expense of owning one, you’re not alone. With sky-high petrol prices, insurance costs seemingly going through the roof and tax all an issue, it can be off-putting. However, by performing a vehicle check, looking at fuel economy and other issues relating to cost, it can be possible to make motoring affordable. Here are some ways in which you can save money when buying a car:

  • Look for the best price available. By shopping around for new car deals, you could find the best model you can afford with the most equipment, best safety rating and greatest fuel economy. Visiting comparison websites might be the way to go. The same applies when looking for insurance for your new car.
  • Run your own vehicle check. It pays to do this, as you can find out whether it’s a genuine road-legal vehicle or not. If you’re buying a car from an individual as opposed to a dealership, then take a really good look at it. If something seems amiss like a part of the bodywork being a different colour to the rest of the car, then it’s probably not worth your time or money.
  • Get a friend to help you find a new car. If your knowledge of what a good car should have isn’t so good, bring a friend with you when looking who has plenty of know-how when it comes to motoring. All being well, they will help point you in the right direction.

  • When choosing a new car, it’s worth looking at how green it is. If it has low fuel consumption, then that’s a plus. However, if you want to go that extra mile, it may be worth looking at buying hybrid models, as they can save money on tax and insurance, as well as fuel.

Join Sulit ang Hanap Mo Part 1 Promo : Win 1 of 6 New iPads!

My schedule can’t be any crazier than it is for the past month. I cannot sit still or even sleep well because of all the things I need to get done. No wonder, I don’t get bored even when I spend most of my week at home, in front of my computer. I DON’T HAVE TIME TO GET BORED! 😀 Good thing I can still squeeze in a few hours of food trip or lakwatsa with my bro, nanay and my friends on a weekly. But, I’m thinking this coming weekend, I need to stay in so I can get much needed sleep.

Anyway, I know there are a ton of new giveaways that launched last week, but this giveaway is just too good to pass up and not feature here. It’s Sulit.com.ph‘s Sulit ang Hanap Mo Part 1 Promo.

Sulit.com.ph Sulit ang Hanap mo Promo Part 1 - Win 1 of 6 New iPads

There’s no doubt I’m a big fan of Sulit.com.ph. They’re the first site I go to everytime I’m looking for something to buy. Just recently, I bought Frontline for our dog Marcel. I found the online seller through Sulit and the transaction was quickly completed. 2 days in, our dog is almost tick-free. But, that’s for another blog post. 🙂

I just had to share the above experience because, just like what the Sulit TVC ad below shows, everything you need to buy, you can find on Sulit.com.ph.

It’s a fun TVC, and I like how creative they got with this new ad. Definitely noteworthy to be featured here. I’ve already won an iPad back in 2010 for a blogging contest on Sulit.com.ph, which I ended up selling through their site too because I needed to buy kitchen tools for my bro (he was in culinary school). That’s why I’m joining this new Sulit giveaway, to hopefully win the New iPad.

They LOVE giving away gadgets to their members. No wonder people also enjoy promoting the site. In my opinion, Sulit.com.ph doesn’t really need to do all that to create a buzz since they’re the first go-to site for any online buyer, and so I appreciate that they still make efforts to advertise online and rewarding people who help them. 🙂

Anyway, it’s easy to join. You just share the TVC through the promo page. You can do this EVERYDAY, EVERY HOUR. That means you can get as much as 24 entries PER DAY. They pick one winner on a weekly basis. Here’s the schedule:

Promo Duration: April 13 – May 30, 2012

Draw Dates:

  • April 23, 2012 – 1st draw (1 winner of New iPad)
  • April 30, 2012 – 2nd draw (1 winner of New iPad)
  • May 7, 2012 – 3rd draw (1 winner of New iPad)
  • May 14, 2012 – 4th draw (1 winner of New iPad)
  • May 21, 2012 – 5th draw (1 winner of New iPad)
  • May 31, 2012 – 6th draw (1 winner of New iPad)

If you don’t win, the raffle entries you accumulated throughout the promo period will be counted as entries for the 2012 Honda City raffle in September. OMG, right? Aside from the New iPad, I also need a car. 😀

Aside from wanting a new home, my bro and I are also planning on owning a car for his business needs. We won’t really need any fancy car, nor any repair leather for that matter. But, dang, with this beauty, why would you need any other accessory? 😉

Win the 2012 Honda City car from Sulit.com.ph
