Missing My Folks

Even after I got married and moved out of my parents' house, they were always just a short drive away.

No food in our house? Let's go to BF and do our grocery shopping in my parents' house!

Bored? Let's go to BF and hang out with my siblings and parents!

Feeling sick and just want to be babied? That's what my mom is for! So let's go to BF, now na!

And then the day we all dreaded happened. My dad retired, and he and my mom moved to Biliran.

Boo :(

A Constant Struggle

As a personal finance blogger, I feel that I might regret this admission later on, but I don't care. Hello, my name is Jill and I'm addicted to shoes! Cute flats and sandals to be more precise.

Product Haul: Too Cool for School

I spotted this quirky store in the then-newly opened SM BF Homes and was instantly drawn to its display of mannequin heads and limbs, which still somehow managed to look cute. Strange, I know.

Anyhoo, it turned out to be a makeup store masquerading as a classroom/ art laboratory. Super cool concept, if you ask me.

I had a blast going through the counters, swatching and swiping and paying no mind to the fact that the brand was really intended for the younger set, hence the name Too Cool for School. Age is all in the mind and since I am as immature as the garden variety yuppie, I belonged there.

Hello! Hello!

I feel like I should introduce myself once again after my long hiatus.

"Hello, my  name is Jill and I run Kikay Exchange. No, Kikay Exchange is not dead, but it may be on the verge of dying because its administrator is a bad blogger. A baaaadddd blogger."


Off tangent, I just celebrated my 35th birthday and how beautiful is my cake from Tous Les Jours?! It was almost sacrilege to cut into such a pretty cake but I'm glad I did because it was also really, really yummeh!

Shiseido Ibuki

There's been so much praise and whoops of joy over Shiseido's Ibuki line that I had to try it out for myself too. The wonders of marketing indeed :)

I picked up the sample kit which contained travel sizes of the cleanser, softener and refining moisturizer for Php1,600.
