Sex in the City: Lust

Sex in the City Lust 20ml Eau De Parfum and perfumed body lotion from my dear friend Faye. It is my first time to have tried this scent but I am already loving it. It isn”t too strong as LUST sounds to me. Ha ha! I rarely go out since I became a SAH

M (stay-at-home-mom), I rarely use it too. But, I am thinking of using it when I go out to the market this afternoon. What do you think? LoL.

TP's Hall of Fame : Melbelline

She”s a 13 year old teenager from Guiginto, Bulacan. Melbelline performed Filipiniana repertoire all the way which gained her the 2nd Hall of Famer title in TV5 network”s Talentadong Pinoy search. She exude so much charm which is definitely a plus to

her awesome talent. She truly deserves to win. There were promising talents who tried to stop her winnings but I guess, being unique in a beautiful way has made her stand out. She”s defeated “Dancing is Fun” on their supposedly 6th win, a group of kids that can really make you sway your hips and hit the dance floor. I personally liked that young group too. Here”s Melbelline, all smiles and proud while holding her trophy. Congratulations!
