Unboxing: Tory Burch in Distressed Leather Reva

I had my first pair of Tory Burch way back 2010 because it was one of the cult shoes of working ladies in Makati when I was still gracing the area. We are all like robots wearing same shoes with long champ bags and that was the simple image of corporate slaves. Shoes and Bags that will make you feel less guilty when broken and you can never go wrong with these just like wearing a Chanel bag and braving all your everyday work load.

As my first pair said goodbye after 2 years of service, I let it go. Usually Tory Burch flats can only last for 6 months with heavy use. The leather will start to crumple and sophisticated battle scars will show off little by little. But one thing I love Reva is that the sole is not too flattened compare to other flats I have tried. The sole was still compact and just  less faded embossed Tory Burch logo  but the appearance looks like a mess and not presentable anymore.

In my style, It’s very important for me to have classic clean shoes, nice bag and crisp looking clothes regardless of the brand.

Without further adieu here’s my  unboxing version of Tory Burch in Distressed Leather Reva.

Anyway, I hope you can use this as a reference when buying a pair of it to know the difference of fake and not. Nowadays there are a lot of Tory Burch sold online and at Greenhills shopping center, be careful in buying it 🙂 spending 4k or 5k just to make tipid and then knowing in the end it’s fake is useless. Still a lot of money burnt.

I bought this at Tory Burch Greenbelt, Makati. They have stuff on sale but too bad this one is not included. The Patent Eddie ballet flat is only 5k something++ such a steal huh? but I like the logo in metal, so that’s why I didn’t opt to buy the ones on sale. (Sale runs until July 31, 2012)

Tip: Tory Burch SA recommends buying half size bigger to avoid pain but I still chose to buy the one that fits me well. All I have to do is just break them in like I used to. After 2 weeks of usage (plus enduring the pain and preparing my medicine to fight blisters) everything will be alright. All you need is to break in!

Php 10, 625.00

I love classic Reva in Brown and Gold. It compliments my skin tone and it gives an illusion of longer legs. I always opt for shoes that makes my legs sexier and so as my feet. There are some shoes that can make your feet like a flat fish or bloated 🙂

That’s all 🙂 Enjoy your adventure when wearing Tory Burch.


Colour Collection Lipstick

If there’s one vice that I can’t get enough… it’s my addiction in buying makeup and try it.

It really makes me happy upon seeing my vanity desk, kits and bag full of it! High or low end ones.

Last week, I bought few stuff from Tupperware brands “Colour Collection” and opted to try their best seller bullets. I know I have only one lips! but I’m sure there’s no one in this world who owns one lipstick for a year!

without further adieu, here’s my review for my dose of lippie!

Colour Collection Confidence boost Lipstick by Bianca S. Valerio in Kisses with Cream

This is my favorite upon trying these three tubes!

(no filter/ natural light/ 2 swipes/ directly applied with no lip brush)


  • Cream texture but not glossy
  • Good for yellow undertone skin
  • Good for everyday use
  • Affordable


  • 2 swipes is not enough (or is it just me?)
  • Cheap packaging (I love classy/ cute packaging)
  • Doesn’t last longer (2-3 hours only)

Colour Collection Vitamin E Matte Lipstick in Vintage

This is similar texture/colour with Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Off Beat. (See, I am not that makeup snob* 🙂 )


  • Doesn’t dry lips
  • Dupe for MAC Pink Nouveau
  • Suits well in yellow undertone skin
  • Affordable


  • 2 Swipes is not enough
  • Cheap packaging
  • Doesn’t stay longer (2-3 hours only)


Colour Collection Celebrity Secrets in Miami Sunrise

This is my very first time to try orange shade and I don’t like it. It doesn’t compliment my skin and I think it is best suited in Morenas. I just bought this one because it looks good on brochure and Bea Alonzo, one of my favorite celebrities endorses it. Oh lala, yes I believe in some sort of advertisement haha! It’s not matte and glittery but not creamy. Still, I don’t like the cheap package and 2 swipes is not enough to pop the color!

Overall, I observed that Colour Collection by Bianca S. Valerio and Matte Lipstick are the good ones and best buy. Highly recommended! I bought this through a tupperware dealer, I have no idea if they have a store. I just spent 600+ including powder foundation refill 🙂 such a steal huh!

Belo Underarm Whitening Cream


For MORE Detailed Review Visit My NEW BLOG ADDRESS: http://sofielicious.com/belo-underarm-whitening-deodorant/

There’s a new Underarm Whitening Cream that I fell in love with! After using it for almost 2 weeks now, I already saw and feel the difference. My usual problem is rough skin and before I was using Mosbeau but I dramatically changed due to slow process in delivering. I’ve been using it for 2 years now and every time I have cold wax, the old skin will show again and doesn’t cure redness caused by cold wax which Belo does. Maybe it’s not for me… but hence, I used it hoping for a miracle.

Now that I switched and tried Belo underarm whitening cream my skin is much smoother, no bumps and believe it or not it is really result oriented product. This is clinically-formulated whitening penetrates the surface of underarm skin and whitens it at the cellular level. Infused with Alpha Arbutin and hydroxyphenoxy Propionic Acid, it effectively targets hyperpigmentation (darkening) while preventing redness casued by habitual plucking and shaving.

How to use it:

Apply a pea-sized amount of cream on the underarm (or desire area that you want to lighten up 🙂 It’s really an all around whitening cream) and gently massage with circular strokes. USE NIGHTLY!

I am so happy that it is really effective in just two weeks. I am using it right now for a week and as I said… it delivers! I have no regrets switching plus it is much cheaper than Mosbeau.

Belo Underarm Whitening Cream is available at Watson’s

Price: Php 799.00 per 40ml container

Get Belofied For More Beautiful You!

I love Belo Medical Group since 2010! I am one of the living proof that Belo can really change your life and can even save you up to the last minute when you have an emergency like a huge zit on your nose a night before your wedding day 🙂 Take note: I am just a regular-girl-next-door, 9-5 chic like everybody else. Belo is worth every penny of your hard work!

Belo Medical Group never fails to amazed me all the time and the last experience was when my husband tried Sexy Solutions. He lost almost 3 pounds in just less than 2 hours and he still maintained it.

Now, Belo has a new interesting FREE APP. Yes! if you like to entertain yourself by using a picture editor, BELO introduces a new Apple App that tickles your fantasy. Since Picnik (A photo editor) closed last summer, I don’t know where I can have fun with my photos, thinking what if I have doll eyes, thinner face (So, help me God) and the list goes on… All those what if’s were answered by this incredible App.

To download the Belofied app, type the word Belofied on the search bar in the Mac App Store. The app is compatible with iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPod Touch (4th generation), iPad 2 wi-fi, iPad 2 wi-fi + 3G, iPad (3rd generation) and iPad wi-fi +4G. Requires iOs 5 or later.

Cristalle Henares and Al Galang (one of the app developers)

Cristalle and Al passionately discussed all we need to know in Belofied APP. It wasn’t even confusing for a not-techie person like me. I even made my husband’s picture as a sample to my group mates and I am laughing so hard because I did it so well and even show it off to him! I even immediately informed all my friends to download Belofied and play with it. As for me, one of my fantasies is to have bigger boobs and wish granted in Belofied!

No wonder that the Belofied app has become talk of the town. Just a week after it was launched, the Belofied app immediately cornered the number one spot of FREE iPhone app ranking under Medical Category in the Philippines. It has also banked the top 3 spot of the Free Apps Overall category in the Philippines with a bullet. The app has even placed 17th on the list of free iPhone apps under the Medical Category worldwide. It was such a hit that it was the top app (Medical Category) in 6 countries after two weeks – Bahrain, Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore and United Arab Emirates!

Even the Queen of all Media loves to play Belofied and a heart throb like Coco Martin also does it…

I am also glad to met new friends like Fashion Pulis, Fierce Blogs and Call me Kristine.

Fashion Pulis and Fierce Blogs

Those two are just beside our table and can’t help but noticed their impeccable beauties and interesting techie conversation and that’s how I met them and enjoyed their company.

Kristine is the one with pretty black dress with pink shawl 🙂 The first time we had a conversation about beauty stuff… I know by heart we are going to click in a jiffy.


So, what are you waiting for? Get Belofied!

Effective Short Cut

Hi everyone!

It’s been a while since my last post! you know life… busy at work & wifey duties. Anyway, I have a lot of things to share and first one is about a short cut in sexier body!

I know right? But of course you should have a healthy lifestyle, if you don’t, come with me and let’s change together haha!

Moving on last week 2 weeks, my husband and I went to Sexy Solutions by Belo ,I’m a bit cynical about their procedures when I attended the bloggers event of Sexy Solutions! why? Ikaw ba naman mawalan ng 3-5 inches in mid section of your body, di ka ba malerki?

The magical machine

There are two machines inside the room where the procedure will be held. These are the one I saw during my husband’s magical moment. He went under 3 procedures for less than 2 hours. All are not under the knife fyi.

I love how clean and cozy their room is but I still love the roomy space of Belo Medical Clinic hehe 🙂 I am a bit claustrophobic.

The real time picture when we went to Sexy Solutions

Before the procedure there will be a consultation done by medical doctors of Belo Medical Group. The doctor will thoroughly asses your health history to make sure every thing will be safe.

Then they will measure your current waist line for documentation. In this way, you will really see if there’s a difference after the procedures.

Here’s the list of three procedures that my husband tried:

Lipo Cavitation (Php 12,000) per session

BURST THE FAT with Lipo Cavitation.

Lipo Cavitation breaks down stubborn fat cells in areas such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, upper and lower back by delivering sound waves using low frequency ultrasound causing the fat cells to burst and the fat to seep out, making it easier to flush out through the lymphatic system.


  • No redness in skin
  • No patches
  • Painless

Con: My husband heard a buzzing sound during the procedure, the doctor said it’s just normal and we were warned before they proceed to Lipo Cavitation.

Multi-Firm ( Php 9,000) per session

Multi Firm uses radio frequency heat to improve the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks. As a result of this, the body becomes reshaped and tightened.


  • Painless
  • No redness in skin
  • No patchess
  • He Snore like there’s no tomorrow! meaning, he fell asleep sa sarap!

Body Sculpt ( Php 4,500) per session

Energy pulses are sent to the muscles to promote contractions similar to exercise, causing a “squeezing” effect that is necessary for the acceleration of liquid fat drainage. It also improves blood circulation, lymphatic drainage, and fat metabolism.


  • No redness in skin
  • No patches


  • He felt like “kinukuryente” which he was a little uncomfortable

The results!

My husband lost 2.9 inches! unbelievable but yeah I am now a believer 🙂 That is the effective shortcut to get those flabs off on your tummy wammy. The tighter the better. But be warned, this procedure is really a good way to start in a healthier you. It is worth every penny if you will continue what you started and if you chose to start with Sexy Solutions, you’ll never regret it.

With or without a machine, if you don’t have a healthy lifestyle… all will go to drain, time,money and energy spent.


After two weeks and counting I noticed that my husband’s cellulite on his stomach was lessened and he maintained the inches lost by maintaining it through healthy diet. He still eats rice but only 1 1/2 cup of rice all through the day as the program suggests.

Ms. Cristalle Belo Henares

Before we avail these procedures my husband and I changed our meal plans first. We didn’t go to crash diet! it’s a no-no. When my husband can control his cravings and rice in take, that’s when we proceed.

this is very effective!

I practiced preparing our meals by the plate guide that was provided by Sexy Solutions during the presentation. Sometime, my husband and I doesn’t want to eat half of that veggies! I know! so what I do is, I make a green glowing smoothie (GGS) to avoid boredom eating veggies! How I wish we love to eat veggies but we don’t. We are forcing ourselves to eat green because we want to be healthier.

I am happy that Sexy Solutions is there with us as a jump start of healthier us as we prepare for my plan to get preggy 2 years for now. I am a fat kid so I don’t want to double it up. God knows how hard I am trying to have a lean body for not shallow reasons. I cried my self to sleep sometimes knowing how difficult it is to stay focus in dieting.

I am glad that my husband is supportive and my friends at work. They really watch what I eat and help me to stay motivated as I possessed a stubborn attitude when it comes to clean eating.

I used to be  thin way back 2008 and it only took me two months to have a nice body and good health that I want forever. From 150 pounds, I hit 118 pounds and enjoying coke! Now, I am insanely back in the old 150 pounds and I can’t focus like before. I miss my energetic and flexible body. If I did it before, I can do it again. right? so help me God!

Naman, pwede na ulit sa akin yan! (2008) five years ago. 1 month result of working out and dieting.

Eh ngayon puro salbabida nanaman likod ko! My husband was in abroad during that time so I dedicated my time in working out every night, 6 days a week.

Kahit nakaupo at may belt! walang bilbil! 2009


Now this is me!

In Herve Leger dress which we all know can really squeeze the hell out of you, spanx and a bolero to hide my arms. And all black to cheat!

with my good friend Denise Lozada in Subic 2012

Ayoko na mag black kahit sa Beach! puro na black damit ko. Pangrap ko mag white with dangerous curves haha!

I feel so tired finding the right angle for my camera pose, more bad pictures at ayoko na mag stomach in!

I want the 118 pounds, I can wear any color that I want. I can move freely and play badminton, run a mile without panting too much like I am dying. Dear body please listen to me haha!!!

So again, If I did it once…. I can do it again.

I am about to take my turn this July and some of the procedure will be tested on my face.

Thank God I am in a process of eating less rice and studying different kinds of diet like Cohen and Gluten free.

Thank you so much Sexy Solutions for supporting me and my husband 🙂
