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?

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!
