I was kind of bored last month and posted this photo on my Facebook for fun. A lot of people guessed some of the things I love but only a few answered some of the things that I am really obsessed with. I had so much fun reading the answers that I thought of blogging about it, for future entertainment. It would be fun to read this blog 5 years from now and check if I am still passionate about my current obsessions.
Things I am NOT obsessed with (based on the answers)
1. Sebastian “Baste” Duterte
My Facebook friends saw me rave about Baste during election period. But no, I am NOT obsessed with him. Unlike most of the girls who are crushing on him because of his looks and that really hot “bad boy” image, I admired him because he’s not only all that, he’s also smart and is eloquent in speaking the English language.
A lot of people answered MUSIC. No, I am not obsessed with music. I used to, but not anymore. I LOVE music. I am really passionate about it; but it’s something that I can go a day by or even days without listening to one. However, I will always, ALWAYS have the need to have a day in a month to just sit down and sing or listen to a good song.
Things I am CURRENTLY obsessed with
These are only some of the make-ups I bought the past three months. To say that I am obsessed is an understatement. Make-ups are literally sucking the life out of my wallet. I need to be exorcised. Seriously, help me!
2. Preparing Healthy Meals
I was diagnosed with Lupus two years ago. It became severe late last year. One of my resolutions for 2016 was to start eating healthy, so I did, and I became obsessed with it! Particularly the process of cooking and preparing them. There’s something about it that gives me inner joy and peace. 🙂 You can follow me on IG @thestreetsmartfashionista for more of these or you can like my Facebook page for recipes.
3. Safeguard soap
No, I’m not kidding. I am obsessed with this soap brand and colors. I can’t have a grocery day without buying the 3Pid Pack and buying two Classic Beige.
White – I don’t have any idea WHY I’m obsessed with it but for some reason, I am whole heartedly convinced that the soap kills 99.9% of germs in our body. HAHAHA! I know it sounds stupid, even had one cousin ask me “unya mutuo pd ka?” (You believe that sh*t?) and literally hated him forever after asking me that silly question. How dare he! Lol. I always have two of this in the house, one in the kitchen for hand wash and one in the bathroom for face and body wash; and I must always buy the biggest size. I am not the one to settle in mediocrity. Ha!
Beige – I’m obsessed with the scent of Classic Beige. It reminds me of my great grandma’s bathroom scent. Always bring happy childhood memories. There was a time when safeguard stopped producing this scent and I almost cried like a hungry child. Glad that P&G placed it back on the racks. Woot!
4. Michael Isopropyl Alcologne
Guys, you can love me or hate me for this, but I am OBSESSED with this brand of isopropyl alcohol. Yes, I am aware that it only has 40% of IA but I swear, it is the most fragrant alcohol in the entire universe. It reminds me of a sleeping baby with flowers on the side and sleeping on a newly changed sheets. Geez. Writing that already gave me scentgasm! I am so obsessed with this that if my favorite grocery store runs out of this would literally make a bad day.
5. All is Well essential Oil
Oh-my-God, I am very obsessed with this oil! I get dizzy spells every now and then, get headaches and easily gets stressed out because of my condition. This oil has helped me multiple times. It’s a Eucalyptus based oil and it calms every nerves in your body. I simply put a drop on a palm, spread on both palms and smell it like my life depends on it. This product is produced by Zenutrients. I have no idea if they cater in most of Philippines but I buy mine at their stall in SM Lanang, almost fronting Forever 21.
I cannot, for the life of me, survive without perfumes. It’s an addiction! I am very obsessed with perfumes because I have the need to be fragrant ALL THE TIME! It’s basically in my hygiene. I feel like I haven’t finished cleaning myself up without a perfume on. The photo above contains all of the perfumes I currently own. No, I don’t collect bottles; I actually use them on a daily basis. I throw empty perfume bottles away. My favorites are Burberry Weekend, Burberry Brit, Calvin Klein Euphoria, Elizabeth Arden Green Tea, and Bvlgari White. The rest of the perfumes that you see on the photo that I haven’t listed as favorites are gifts from friends who know just how obsessed I am with perfumes. Yes, I have the best-EST friends ever! 🙂
