Fat Ninja Frozen Katsu

Sometimes, you just want a hot bowl of rice, katsudon on top, and your favorite sauce to cap a really stressful day. We may not be going to the office but there's still a lot of things that can stress a Momma at home and we all deserve a break from the kitchen now and then but still be able to provide a hearty meal for our family.

So, what's a Mom gotta do? Order Frozen Katsu of course.

I've heard about Fat Ninja and a few friends recommended it. I was initially apprehensive because I am super fond of my Katsudon. However, I bit the bullet and finally gave it a go.

This one is so easy to cook. You can literally take it out of the packaging and just deep fry.

Make sure that the katsu is really immersed and do this for 8 minutes under low heat.

It should look like this.

I love that they also have the two different sauce for rice and the meat.

I am so happy with this. It felt like I was eating at my favorite Japanese restaurant. LEGIT! Definitely making this a part of my monthly budget.

You can order from them by clicking on the links below.

First Impressions of the Velvetint by Coloroutte

Anyone who knows me knows that I love lipsticks. I used to have 348 pieces but since I am learning more about moderate minimalism, I have actually cut it down to less than 20. Now, the lipstick gods have blessed me with 12 new liquid lipsticks from Velvetints by Colourette. I am more than excited to share with you if it's worth your money and worth a space on your beauty drawers.

Velvetint by Coloroutte claims to have intensely pigmented formula which dries down from a velvet to powder matte finish. They say that this foolproof tint works 3 ways: eyes, cheeks, and lips — and stays all day while remaining comfy on skin.

It now comes in 12 colors that are universally flattering on a morena. The first 3 is the original which are: RSVP, Rose, and Birthday Cake.

The next are the 9 new colors. After Party, Toast, PreGame, Confetti, Plus One.

Stiletto, Bubbly, Soiree, Debutante.

I decided to go ahead and film myself putting it on and I must say that first impressions wise, I was actually impressed.

When I put on the lippie, it glided smoothly. It did go from velvety to powder matte finish in less than 30 seconds which was pretty impressive. It's been 3 hours since I put it on as I'm typing this and it's still doing well. I've eaten chips and drank but it's stayed.

I also tried it on my eyes, cheeks, and lips. On my lips is Bubbly, on my cheeks is Debutante, and on my lids is RSVP. Easy to blend and fix, smooth transiton, and it looks natural on my skin which I really love.

Here are the swatches. Bottom to top: After Party, Toast, PreGame, Confetti, RSVP, Plus One, Stiletto, Rose, Birthday Cake, Bubbly, Soiree, Debutante.

Each liquid lipstick contains 3.5ml of lippie and retails for Php349 each. You can buy them from the Colourette Official Store in Shopee.

Verdict: On first impressions, I would definitely say that they passed. I think that for Php349, this liquid lipstick is worth every peso and deserves a space in any Filipina's beauty drawer. If you are looking for something that is flexible, blendable, and easy to mix and match, this line of Velvetints from Coloroutte may just be the one for you.

Things You Need to Know About Diamond Painting

A lot of people are finally getting into diamond painting. I blame it on the whole quarantine thing. Since people are stuck at home, a lot of them found ways to be more productive or while away time.

I've been doing diamond painting for about 4 years now. I've done a lot of projects and was even able to send a Tiger project to my cousin in UK. For a lot of people, diamond painting is something that soothes their mental health because of the repetitive motion.

For those who are new, it can be a little bit overwhelming and a little intimidating which is why I am sharing a lit of things you need to know about diamond painting.

1. Patience is a virtue.

When you do diamond painting, patience is definitely a must. You need to add the beads one by one on a canvass and it's almost impossible to finish one piece overnight unless it's really small or you have nothing else to do.

2. LED Lights

One of the questions often asked is if you need to buy a LED Light. For me, it's a yes because I have bad eyesight. Also, there are patterns with crazy symbols that all look the same. LED Lights also help with reducing eye strain.

However, it is not imperative. You can also use a desk lamp if you don't have the budget for a LED light yet.

3. Tweezers vs Drill Pen

Some people will prefer tweezers while others would prefer a drill pen. Choose the one that's comfortable for you.

PRO-TIP: If you are into square beads, tweezers are best in aligning beads.

4. Start with a small canvas.

It's exciting to just go big but since this is your first time, start off with a letter sized canvas then work your way up. This was, you won't feel burnt out. I started doing diamond paintings 4 years ago and it was all big canvasses. I am enjoying the small ones now.

5. The more details in your design, the bigger your canvas needs to be. If you are doing something like Disney characters all in one page, make sure that your canvass is at least 25 inches wide. This way, you will see all the pertinent details.

6. Seal it with a Kiss.

Or use MOD PODGE or PRIMERO CLEAR to seal your finished product. This is a work of art which needs to be protected so sealing is recommended for me.

7. Stock up but don't overstock.

You will end up getting addicted so ordering around 3-5 pcs is a good idea. However, do not flood yourself and order more than 10 in one go. Sometimes, you may experience DP fatigue and find yourself not wanting to do it so make sure that there's not a huge influx in your home.

A few pieces lying around is good so that you don't run out but too much of anything is bad.

8. There is an online community for diamond painting. Here's my group but there's also other groups. Choose the ones that fit your personality and culture.

9. When buying online, always read if it's partia or full beads. Partial means there are only certain areas that will be covered by the beads and full means the entire design is made of beads.

10. Sizing. It is almost always in cm so learn to convert to inches so you have an idea of how big your kit will be.

Tipid Hacks from a Wais Momma

Every peso counts.

Every peso you get to stretch matters.

Every peso you put aside in savings matter too.

This is why I've decided to share with you some tipid hacks that I have been doing which has helped me survive being a single Mom for almost 12 years.

1. Batch Cooking

When you cook, make sure that you do it in batches. You can then freeze the other portions and then simply reheat when it's time to eat it. This way, you save up on time, energy, and gasoline.

The more times you need to cook, the more time you need to allot and the more gasoline you need to use.

2. Have a list, stick to it.

When you do your groceries, make sure that you buy things good for one month. Aside from exposing yourself unnecessarily to the virus when you go out, you also waste money on gas, fare, or even your energy if you go out week after week.

Doing you grocery once a month saves up a lot of time and makes it easier to track which items are being used wastefully and which items you don't need to buy again because there's still a lot left.

Having a list also guarantees that you won't buy things that are not a necessity.

3. Use quality items.

Quality items may sound more expensive than low rate ones but there's a reason for that. Quality items last longer which means you won't need to keep buying.

This is also true for diapers. I've tested so many different ones on my son Khali and with the cheaper diapers, I had to keep changing every 2 hours. With Pampers, I changed his diapers every 6-8 hours, sometimes even 10 hours especially when he's sound asleep at night. This means that I get to save a lot more money with a quality diaper than with a cheap one.

4. Apply the 3 month rule

When you want to buy something that is not really a necessity, apply the three month rule. Hold off on buying it for at least 3 months. If after 3 months you still want to make that purchase, then you can go ahead and do so. Just make sure that in the 3 months leading up to it, you're also saving for the cost that it will take.

5. Unplug

Something that almost all of us fail to do is to completely unplug devices and appliances. A plugged but turned off appliance will still run at 25%. This means we are paying for electricity that we're not really using. Unplugging not only guarantees less electric bill, it also safeguards us from potential fire.

These are things that I have been doing for the last 12 years as a single Mom. Which one did you like best?
