Haloscan Help

Any users of Haloscan here?

Haloscan sent a notice that they were upgrading to Echo (paid service) and that within 2 weeks all comments should be exported.

I did as instructed to the letter but Blogger won't import the comments.  I am in danger of losing ALL 700 ++ comments in my blog because of this.  I tried exporting to Wordpress but it also wont import the comments. I've been mulling over this since last week, trying every limited knowledge I have of computers to no avail.  It keeps saying there is an error (with Blogger).

HELP!!!

Stila Smudge Pot in Bronze

This one isn't mine but my mom's. We bought them at the same time as my Stila Little Black Dress (previous post). Just wanted to show a swatch of it and how nice it looks.

Barbie Loves Stila Smudge Pot in LBD

Hi all! Christmas is fast approaching and I still have a few gifts to get for the family.

My DD's Christmas party in school (with parent participation) is coming up this Saturday and so is my baby nephew's baptism -- in the afternoon of the same day!

One of the products I didn't regret buying a few weeks ago is the Barbie Loves Stila Smudge Pot in Little Black Dress. I got it for Php 895 (around $18) for a 4 gram glass pot. Cheaper than US prices, I think. And don't you just love the packaging? It's Barbie's eye that winks at you in a 3D/ hologram-ish sort of lid cover.

L'Oreal UV Perfect SPF 50


Another sunblock I tried out! This time it's the L'Oreal UV Perfect in Even Complexion. I've read so many raves for this brand that I had to try it out. It costs Php 495 at local drugstores, supermarkets and department stores. It has 3 variants - Transparent Skin (white), Anti-Dullness (lilac) and this one.

Sally Hansen Problem Cuticle Remover


There are different kinds of cuticle removers from Sally Hansen. Out of curiosity I chose this one - the Problem Cuticle Remover.

Busy, busy...

Hi all!

I've been so busy the past couple of weeks that it is only now I am able to open the PC to read and write. Again all my posts have been scheduled posts done so many weeks ago and I think they're until next week. That's if I don't get to add some more.

First off my SIL stayed with us for a week because we lived near the hospital and she was due at anytime. I was on labor watch as she was induced here at home bec. the baby still wouldn't come out. Then we were still on labor watch when she was at the hospital for 2 days. A C-section was done Sunday and hubby and I were in the OR with her (me as the photographer) when our little nephew was born. He is sooo cute! He looked so much like our daughter when she was born except that he's a bit chubbier (of course, he was a big baby that's why a CS was done).

Also, Sunday was hubby's and my anniversary. I felt a bit guilty that we couldn't celebrate that much because we (mostly I) were thinking of our SIL and the unborn baby. I couldn't even think about all the beauty stuff at Rustan's Essences the very short time I was there because my mind was in the hospital.

Not to mention the Christmas parties to be attended. We went to our hospital department's party yesterday in between looking after the baby bec. he was brought in for circumcision at the same time. Another hospital party end of this week to go to.

Plus, my DD and I are sick with the sniffles (DD with cough, too). Haaay. Must be the stress. I still haven't done any shopping for my parents, bro, SIL and our colleagues.

Hopefully I get everything done soon. I have so many posts in draft form but don't have the time to write them down. Maybe after Christmas. Even my crops in Farm Town have died :-(

Palmer's Cocoa Butter SPF 15


I ran out of my body lotion with SPF so I went to Rustan's and got me the Palmer's Cocoa Butter w/ Vit. E SPF 15.

I like 2-in-1 (or 3-in-1) products because they are easier to use. I put on sunblock even on my body (arms, neck and legs) everyday (well, most of the time if I don't forget or I just don't if I'll only be staying home that day). I saw this product on their shelves months ago and promised to get it as soon as I ran out of what I was currently using (another promise is to use up what I currently have before buying something else!).

The bottle is 8.5 oz or 250ml for Php495. It has broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection that soothes marks and tones skin.
