The Pink Promise

I just made a promise to get a yearly breast examination... To beat breast cancer... Because I believe that early detection saves lives...


In Miss Evelyn Lauder's quest to "continue to save lives and make breast cancer a worry of the past", a total of 13 wonderful brands of Estee Lauder has joined the fight and offers specially designed products, and gives away millions of pink ribbons and informational brochures. As the founder of The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, she raised funds for the researchers who focus on achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime.

As an ordinary citizen, I took the initiative to donate a minimum amount by just buying one product on the list.

So I bought this...


It's kinda' expensive, but at least, I got a lot of benefits.... And one of those is having been able to help raise funds for the prevention of breast cancer... Woohoo!!!

I've been using this cream for a year now, and I must say that I finally found the right one! Two weeks ago, I noticed that the jar's almost empty so I planned on buying it that weekend, but unfortunately, it wasn't listed on my priorities that day, so I had to wait again for another payday... The following week was terrible... My skin felt dry, itchy, flaky, and irritated... It is because I used a different moisturizer for 5 consecutive nights and somehow, it didn't work for me... Nothing beats the performance of Creme de la Mer... For me, it is really my miracle cream... I know it may not work for everybody, but for me, this could be my lifetime bed partner-(oh really???) Teehee...

Hey! Speaking of bed partners, I just got a present!!!

It's our 11th year wedding anniversary (yes, I know, I'm old!!!) and my BH gave me this...

He knows that I love this particular EDT and for the past few weeks, in the malls, I've been eyeing it and asking for samples over the counter... Good thing BH didn't pretend to be indifferent this time... At least he knew exactly what to give me... But it doesn't matter anyway, it always feels like "heaven" when receiving something from him (yeah right!)... It's just that, this time, and for the first time, I felt important, thought about, and, understood...

Okay, now back to the EDT... I love the scent of Bvlgari Omnia Crystalline because its woody, musky, and has the slightiest hint of floral fragrance for a feminine touch... It is a mixture of notes of bamboo, nashi pear, balsawood, lotus flower, lemon, neroli, white peony, and mountain lily...

My sponsor, fragrancenet.com described it as, "A bright, addictive fragrance, for a woman who demands to be noticed!"

Hmmm.... So I'll give it a try... And maybe get noticed...
