If you read last weeks blog post... 

I just wanted to remind everyone, I will still be posting casually on my Instagram & Twitter. Heads up: There will be other things mixed in with my casual nail polish posts, it's not nails only- reason for this is because I want to get back to what I love, and it's less stress for me. I am no longer doing any product reviews or sponsored content. Honestly, I'm not sure where this blog is headed at the moment... which is another reason for the break...


*I am not currently accepting any products for review or advertisement. Emails for such solicitations will be ignored.

Blogging Break Extended

I know I posted this a few weeks ago, but that was before I was hit with several product reviews that needed to be completed, so I wasn't "technically" on a break. I've decided to extend my blogging break until sometime around the end of June or early July. We'll just call it my "Summer Break". :-p 

This also means IG Sunday will be suspended for a few weeks. I've run out of scheduled posts for now, but I'll be back with some new bloggers when my break is over. 

So... If you want to keep up with me, give me a follow on the Tunay Na Mahal Facebook Page, or my Instagram. I'm not totally going silent! :-p

I am also having a blog sale on Storenvy! There's still quite a bit of nail polishes left. You can view my blog sale here:

Also, catch up on all the current reviews I've posted on the blog!
And don't forget I have an Instagram Giveaway ending May 31st! It's open internationally!

P.S. Here's a peek at some beachy nails I did with Zoya Magical PixieDust in Bar (press sample), and Ellagee Dolphins of the Caribbean!

My husband was on the news!

Hahaha! My husband was on the news today! Channel 6 Action News at 4 has a segment where they feature Facebook Pages of Action News Fans, called Facebook Flash. I told my husband we should fill out the form for him to be featured since he came to Philadelphia in March of this year. And having the Liberty Bell in your profile picture doesn't hurt, haha! ;-)

We were in the kitchen cooking dinner when my Mom called to us and told us F.B. was on the news. We are lucky they upload all the archives onto their website, because we just caught the end of it. My husband's "13" seconds of fame as he says, hahaha! Video Below! He is number 3 in the video!

P.S. Remember my blog giveaway ends 9/16!

Viral Facebook Posts- Does it make a difference?

I'm tired of these pointless viral Facebook posts. SPAM statuses, or like this week's viral posting. Have a lot of your friends changed their profile pictures to cartoons? Are you seeing this status re-posted:

Change your FB profile picture to a cartoon from your childhood. The goal? To not see a human face on FB until Monday, December 6th. Join the fight against child abuse, copy & paste to your status and invite your friends to do the same.

What is the point of this? It doesn't help anyone? Sure it might be fun but does it really make a difference in a child's life?

We post these statuses to support the military, cancer awareness, child abuse, etc. Why are we not posting links to charities to help these types of causes instead? If you're going to show your support- do so to make a difference!

Tonight I posted a status that read:

It makes more sense to donate to a Charity that benefits a child then to change your profile picture to a cartoon. Check out this list of Children's Charities for ways you can actually make a difference: 
Now go do something good!

Afterwards I checked the list myself and chose a charity that I wanted to make a donation too. I chose to make a small donation to the Make A Wish Foundation.

If you're going to participate in this viral Facebook campaign then please copy and share the status I made with your friends and donate to a charity to truly make a difference in a child's life!

Three Days Until The Wedding...

It’s already Wednesday December 16th here at 2am. (My blog settings are still on my home time.) We are down to just 3 days until the wedding… and even though I’ve been in the Philippines 3 weeks now, it’s the week of my wedding I come down with a cold!!!

Sunday afternoon my nose started running and by the evening my throat was really sore. F.B.’s dad had some leftover cold medicine so that held me over until we could get some more medicine on Monday. Early Monday morning F.B. went to the grocery to get me some Gatorade and menthol cough drops. (Menthol candy here in the Philippines!) Today my nose has just been running & I've been sneezing!!!

Monday we had to go to the Cainta municipal hall to pick up our marriage license. We dropped it off at the mayor’s office for our wedding on December 19th. I also mailed some Christmas cards and we picked up more cold medicine, soup and Listerine at the grocery. We went to Robinson’s Galleria that evening and had dinner at Tokyo Tokyo and Starbucks afterwards… hot coffee feels so good on my throat right now!

Last Saturday we went to Mall of Asia in the afternoon and had lunch at Chow King. I discovered I could get the Peppermint Mocha as a light blended frappucino, yay! F.B. had a toffee nut frapp.(These pictures are especially for Shannon! Sorry, lol!)

Afterwards we met up with F.B.’s parents at the Manila Hotel so we could confirm the reservations, etc for the wedding buffet dinner on December 19th. I was happy because there was free wi-fi at the hotel. I recently had to pay my cell phone company an exorbitant amount of money for blackberry roaming charges, blah. So now I can only use internet on my phone when there’s free wi-fi.

Some pictures of the Manila Hotel:

I thought I would share what our invitations look like all done up:

And these are the favors we are giving away at the wedding. They are in heart shaped boxes. It’s a keychain with our wedding date and an American flag on one side and a Philippine Flag on the other. (A big thank you to F.B.’s family for all of the wedding planning, reservations, favors, etc!)

Our titanium wedding rings!

After the Manila Hotel we decided to go to Trinoma Mall for dinner but it was sooo mobbed with weekend Christmas Shoppers that we just ended up at Big R near F.B.’s house for dinner. We tried a new Japanese restaurant named ‘Kitaro’. I had a chicken teriyaki meal and F.B. had “yakiniku” which was a beef meal. (I told him it looked like Philadelphia cheese steak meat without the cheese!) We also had our favorite sushi, California Maki. Which is just cooked crab meat & mango, mayo. (The USA version has avocado instead of mango.) Kitaro’s had little fish eggs on top too, but it was really good. We will definitely be having dinner there again sometime.

I got some more keychain mice at the 85 Peso store in Robinson’s Galleria. I’ve got a whole collection now!

We also found these weird sunglasses there- I bought them mainly because F & I thought the the “English” on the package is hysterical. I think I may have to submit them to (Click to make the pictures larger.) Most all of the items from the 85 Peso store are from Japan.

F.B. was excited to have Ruffles the other night, he hasn’t had any since before the flood. I was excited to find plain Snyder’s Pretzels at SM Marikina’s supermarket! (Since I'm still doing my pre-wedding dieting. Which is mainly no junk foods and smaller portions.)

F.B. likes to create sandwiches. Here’s his 3 layer salami sandwich from last week! He and my brother Seth will definitely get along; Seth likes to make 3 layer sandwiches too.

Mugwort was hanging out in front of F’s house the other night he made himself at home on the decorative stone.

Dinner at Gerry’s Grill last week:

Just hanging out at the house:

Saturday morning 12/19 we will be getting married at the Cainta Municipal hall by the mayor. (Which means at home in Philadelphia it will actually be Friday, 12/18 at 9pm!) Around 2pm we will have to check into the Manila Hotel. We are staying 2 nights as a gift from F.B.’s parents. 6pm-10pm will be our wedding dinner. It’s going to be a long day so I will probably be doing a blog sometime the week after the wedding. You can always check my Facebook page for more current updates!

NOTE: If you are getting married in the Philippines and you are a US citizen these requirements from the US Embassy in Manila Philippines, will be helpful: Getting Married in The Philippines.
