DroolWorthy: My picks from MEGA Sep2012

The pre-CHM me used to buy my own magazines... but now, I've limited myself to buying only YUMMY, which I collect for the recipes (now to cook them - that's another story!). So now, parlor time means catching up on fashion magazines. Why buy when you can borrow, right? Thanks to the iPhone - I can take pictures of the stuff I like instead (did someone say cheapskate?).

Here are my top picks from the MEGA Magazine September 2012 issue. If you'd like to read up more on each item - do get your copy - or hop on to your nearest beauty shop to check it out.

Beauty Products. The Laneige blackhead melting gel promises to "melt" blackheads, and make pores look smaller. I am intrigued! This review further piqued my interest - so I shall be looking for this product the next time I see a Laneige beauty counter. The Chanel nailpolish #559 called Frenzy caught my attention because of the light and dainty color... it's descriped as "greyish-purple." For $26 per bottle though - the polish is not cheap. I hope other brands come out with a similar color!

Bags. Bags always catch my attention. My favorites are totes that you can dump everything into (so I don't need to carry a separate diaper bag). A recent favorite has been cross body sling bags - to keep both hands free for my girls. It's not a surprise that I gravitated towards these bags. Which one catches your fancy?
Clockwise from top: (1) Valextra (I like the yellow one!) (2) Celine Cabas Zip Tote (3) Cole Haan Crosby Shopper

Restaurants. My husband and I love food and trying out new places (when we can). We also love Japanese food a lot. These two new places will definitely make it to the top of our must try soon restaurants: Yurakuen Japanese Restaurant at Diamond Hotel and a new modern Thai place in Pasig (Kapitolyo, of course) called NAV. In case you've tried these places - do drop me a note and let me know what your favorite dish was!
What is "modern" Thai? The crispy catfish rice sure caught my fancy.

Those fresh seafood are calling me!
Which of my picks would have been your pick too? Let me know! Happy weekend!
