A week before my birthday, I received a box of Villa Del Conte chocolates. It came in their new birthday box. Perfect! It was officially the first birthday gift I received this year. :D
In place of their usual orange-colored box and brown ribbon (which reminds me of Hermes, mind you) was a cute pastel-colored patterned box.
Inside the box are lots and lots of chocolates!
I love how they're colorfully wrapped. Each one is a different variant but the chocolates are comprised mainly of Praline Balls and Praline Sticks. You can identify which is which based on the color of the wrapper.
I got my very first ever BDJ Box Elite today, the theme is Corporate Chic. Unlike the regular BDJ Box wherein you pay P580, the BDJ Box Elite is pricier at P1,480 per box. You're guaranteed over P4k worth of products though.
Surprise, it did not come as a box. The products are all inside this Simply She Cosmetic Pouch worth P400.
There are 7 products inside the pouch, 4 of which are full-sized.
First item up is the K-Palette 1 Day Magic Liquid Eyeliner (P695, pictured above). I love K-Palette and this is a full-sized product so we're definitely off to a very good start!
Cheez Whiz is something I grew up with. When I was a little girl, it was very easy for me to make my own sandwich because all I had to do was open a jar of Cheez Whiz, get a spoon, and then spread some its creamy cheesy goodness on bread. I just turned 40 and Cheez Whiz is 50, so we're not so far apart in terms of age, lol. Did you know that Cheez Whiz was first sold in the Philippines way back in 1967?
I now have my own kids and well, Cheez Whiz is still around to make snack time a lot more interesting!
You know how bento lunches and snacks are the rage these days? I tried my hand at it the other day. I got some crackers, luncheon meat, cookies, fruits, seaweed, and bread. I didn't really know what I was doing because well, I don't cook and I only have one super short bento-making workshop under my belt, lol! I don't even have the usual tools and knickknacks bento moms would use either. I had to make do with what I had on hand.
Since it's October, Halloween is just around the corner. What better way to spice up my daughter's merienda than to make a Halloween-themed snack bento! I got some round biscuits, put a circle-shaped luncheon meat on them and spread some Cheez Whiz. I covered it with another biscuit to form a Cheez Whiz and luncheon meat sandwich biscuit.
