Have you tasted this? Kitkat Cookies and Cream

For some weird reason, I found myself craving chocolates only to remember I had some Kit Kats in the fridge. I grabbed the Cookies and Cream flavored one just because it's the one I haven't tasted yet.

The verdict? Heavenly!

I tell you guys, it's everything good and yummy! Cookies and Cream chocolate is great on its own but add to that the trademark Kit Kat chocolate covered wafers and what do you have? Pure delight!

You have HAVE to taste this for yourself! Yum-O!

*For some weird reason, I deleted the picture I took of it. Thank you to chocablog.com for the pic! :)*

Merry Christmas from Johnson's!

I was pleasantly surprised when a package arrived for me yesterday:

Here's the note at the back:

Wohooo! Exciting! So what did it contain? A set of six Johnson's lotion samples!

The bottles are so adorable! I absolutely love the packaging. It's also perfect to bring around everywhere co'z it's just as big as my index finger! See? So cute!

This freebie is actually part of Johnson's promo to "share the gift of soft skin". It was S who sent me the link via email and at first I didn't really believe how easy it was to receive a package. But lo and behold, it's true!

Thanks a lot Johnson's!

So I'm passing on the Christmas cheer and leaving here the link to the site. This promo is too good to keep secret ;)

Selecta Gold Vanilla Almond

Christmas is the perfect season to indulge in everything sweet and scrumptious. So to begin my holiday season pigging out sessions, let me share with you one yummy ice cream flavor you SHOULD have a bowl of this season:

The first time I heard this flavor, I immediately wanted to taste it! I am so in love with Haagen Dazs' Hazelnut Brittle so anything resembling it is appealing to me. Well, this one isn't Haagen Dazs and it's not hazelnut but it did taste as amazing!

Yum-o! Kudos to Chef Ariel Manuel! :)

If you want something along this line, I also suggest you try out Nestle's Vanilla Secret (Vanilla with caramel swirls and almonds), the difference is, the almonds are chopped into little bits so you get small 'surprises' with every bite unlike the Selecta Gold Series' where the almonds are chopped bigger :)

How about you girls, what's your current favorite ice cream flavor?

Penguin Classics Get a New Look!

Book stores are love :) I like spending time just browsing the shelves and mentally listing down titles I'd want to add to my book collection.

Well, I was casually looking through the books at National the other day when I chanced upon the coolest book covers ever!

What are they? They're some of our favorite Penguin Classics! Aren't they adorable?? I am so in love with these new covers, I wanted one for myself right then and there! But the hefty price tag on these and the fact that I already own a copy stopped me from another impulsive purchase. Hehe :P

My favorite of all the covers would have to be Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. See the drastic change from the boring cover on the left to the new age, graphic-inspired one on the right. I love it!

Here's the front and back panel of the book:

They are sooooo pretty! It just goes to show that Classics doesn't have to be boring! Besides, these books are some of the best stories I have ever read and I'm so happy they are given a modern spin. Makes me hopeful that more kids would want to read them too :)

For now, National Bookstore is the only store I've seen these in. They retail for more than 6oophp each. So sorry I didn't get to note the artist behind these masterpieces but from what I remember, he's a famous Spanish painter :)

Give me a heads-up if you see other Classics with these new covers okay? I want to see them all! :) Thanks PK girls!

Cookies for Santa

Christmas is fast approaching and I'm starting to obsess over everything Christmassy! Out goes my fun-colored semi-winter outfits, vanilla-scented perfume, giggly disposition and craving for anything and everything sweet!

Well, we dropped by my favorite membership store, S&R, last weekend and I got myself the perfect cookies to leave for Santa this Christmas eve:

I was so happy when I saw this on the shelves! I used to get these at Duty Free but since I haven't gone abroad this year, buying this has been a dream.

I'm not a big oreo fan because one, I don't particularly love chocolate and two, I don't eat the filling. Hehe :P But these golden oreos are something else! I love them so much, I actually eat everything, with filling and all!

I don't know what's with the taste but I honestly think this is better than the original oreos. I'm not sure if it's vanilla or milk flavored, it's just... white. Let's not try to discover what's making it taste wonderful, it'll just ruin the effect. hehe!

I'm so glad I found these in time for Christmas! These are the perfect Christmas cookies for Santa! If you see this in the supermarket, don't double guess yourself. Grab one immediately! It is soooooooo good!

Advance Merry Christmas everyone!

Starbucks Christmas Decor

There are a lot of reasons I love hanging out in coffee shops. And one of them is the joy of finding cute new stuff! Look what I found at Starbucks:

What are those?

The CUTEST christmas decors! They're small Starbucks cups tied to a ribbon that you can hang your Christmas trees! They are soooooo cute!

I am so obsessing over the red cup, especially since I often buy my coffee hot. It's so cute! I want to decorate my entire tree with these! Love it!

Each one retails for 199php :)

Yoghurt love ♥

I am a big yoghurt fan. I grew up on yoghurt and yoghurt drinks that we hardly run out of yakult, chamito or nestle yoghurt in our fridge. Not only does it do wonders for my digestive system, I also really like the sweet and sour taste of yoghurt.

Well, after a long and tiring day at an event in Tarlac, me and friends decided to binge eat at White Hat-- and binge eat I did! Yum-o!

White Hat offers yummy frozen yoghurt. You can add toppings from fruits, cereals, nuts, chocolates, or whatever your heart desires! (and also whatever is available. lol!)

I love it so much it's like eating a sour sundae which to me tastes heavenly!

Here are the ones we ordered:

"Fun" hat: oreo, marshmallows and almond strussel

A chocoholic's take: choco puffs, chocolate chips and brownies

Baker's Hat! My favoriteeeee! Blueberries, cheesecake bits, and almond strussel

Strawberry Cheesecake version: strawberry jam, cheesecake bits, almonds

Yummy! My friends didn't get to finish theirs and I ended up wiping their cups clean! Lol! :P I guess you can say loving the taste of yoghurt is acquired. It's not for all but as the adjective implies, it's "acquired", it just takes getting used to and I'm sure you'll love it too! (Just think of it like coffeee when we were young, we hated it but now we're avid fans! same goes for tea too!)

How about you girls? Do you like the taste of yoghurt? What's your favorite frozen yoghurt store?

Friendster revamped!

I admit, I think Friendster is so passe after Facebook came into the scene. I even thought of permanently deleting my Friendster account, it wasn't for sentimental reasons. Well, guess what? Our former favorite FS is out to win back the throne from FB!

Check out their spanking new layout and design:

I'm actually liking the new interface. It looks neater and more "sophisticated". But I just don't know... I'm in too deep with Facebook and unless Friendster introduces something Facebook doesn't have, I don't think I'd be reviving my account anytime soon.

How 'bout you girls, what do you think of the new Friendster?

Nightlight, a Twilight Parody

I admit, I'm not the biggest Twilight fan although I do get carried away by all the hype. I guess I can say, I'm in between so when my friend told me about this Twilight parody called Nightlight, it immediately piqued my interest!

For the first time in 40 years, the Harvard Lampoon publishes 'Nightlight', a spin-off of Stephanie Meyer's Twilight series.

Here's what the product description reads:

About three things I was absolutely certain. First, Edwart was most likely my soul mate, maybe. Second, there was a vampire part of him–which I assumed was wildly out of his control–that wanted me dead. And third, I unconditionally, irrevocably, impenetrably, heterogeneously, gynecologically, and disreputably wished he had kissed me.

And thus Belle Goose falls in love with the mysterious and sparkly Edwart Mullen in the Harvard Lampoon’s hilarious send-up of Twilight.

Pale and klutzy, Belle arrives in Switchblade, Oregon looking for adventure, or at least an undead classmate. She soon discovers Edwart, a super-hot computer nerd with zero interest in girls. After witnessing a number of strange events–Edwart leaves his tater tots untouched at lunch! Edwart saves her from a flying snowball!–Belle has a dramatic revelation: Edwart is a vampire. But how can she convince Edwart to bite her and transform her into his eternal bride, especially when he seems to find girls so repulsive?

Complete with romance, danger, insufficient parental guardianship, creepy stalker-like behavior, and a vampire prom, Nightlight is the uproarious tale of a vampire-obsessed girl, looking for love in all the wrong places.

So okay, it might be better appreciated by detractors rather than fans. But when I told my good friend and Twilight fan P about it and lovingly joked about her being Belle Goose, she took it well and adapted to her new role, while imagining what Edwart looks like. So I guess it's not as offensive as others may think.

To be truly honest, you guys should read it! Twilight fans would appreciate it more because it was cleverly written and the parodies would be best understood by those who are actually well versed with the original. Chapter one is a total laugh! It points a lot of "unrecognized" flaws in the story with other funny and exaggerated spin-offs. I tell you, I'm now a big Nightlight fan! lol! :P

click here to read Chapter 1 of Nightlight! Enjoy! :)
