If you knew me personally, you would know that it doesn’t take much to make me happy. Being appreciative is probably one of my biggest qualities (the others, ask the people who know me. LOL) So imagine how giddy I got when my former High school classmate, Ate Joice, contacted me asking if I could try out their cupcakes. I know I’ve mentioned this before but I adore food. I am not choosy and I eat almost anything, so of course I said yes! It was also a good excuse so I can finally see her again, say, after 7 years!
Luscious Bites was started just last February 13, 2013 by ServSafe Certified Chef Razel J. Legaspi-Esporas, a graduate of Culinary Arts and Technology from the Center for Culinary Arts-Manila. At first, most of their customers were within the family, until it branched out to friends of friends, and friends of friends of friends. Luscious Bites aims to produce pastries that are made with premium ingredients and love.
So anyway, here’s what I got! I was given six cupcakes to try! I took a bite from each (okay, on other flavors, I ate more like half! Haha!) and shared the rest with my family. Share your calories, as I always say!
Rocky Road Cupcake
Hershey’s Chocolate Cupcake
Triple Oreo Cupcake
Banana Caramel Cupcake
The verdict? I (and my family as well) loved them! I’ve done several researches on what makes a perfect cupcake and Luscious Bites passed them all. Their packaging was straight forward, clean and most importantly, efficient. Did you know these survived a two hour trip back home? Anyway, moving on. The cake wasn’t too dense and definitely not crumbly. It was moist, but not the kind of moist that makes it look like it needs a little more time in the oven. The frosting was perfect for the size of the cupcake, not too much and not too little (although personally, I love cupcakes with lots of frosting!) I also like how the frosting is not too sweet. I generally do not like eating too sweet things. Lastly, all the cupcakes were flavorful. I actually arranged the photos of the cupcakes above from the flavors I found okay to those I found the best. Again, I am not too fond of sweet things (although I am a sucker for sweet, cheesy gestures, but that’s not what we’re talking about here. Haha!) so I guess it’s really no surprise on how I ended up liking the fruit based cupcakes the most!

Everything’s Mine was established with the sole purpose of satisfying every ladies craving for fashion by providing glitzy materials at a very affordable prices. (Source)
Everything’s Mine is the brainchild of real life partners Yhaj Perez and Sarah Santos. It was established last September 25, 2011, and is now fast approaching its 10th month. Everything’s Mine bloomed out of the owners’ love for designing clothes and online shopping. After getting disappointed with the unreasonable pricing in the market, the two decided to set up their own shop, making sure to keep everything affordable yet not sacrificing quality at the same time.
I have a lot of love for Everything’s Mine. I commend how they try their best to provide quality items at dirt cheap prices. Their nail decals sell for 35php/set, and you can avail of their buy 3 for 100php promo too! Their bestselling collection, the Cherlindrea Collection, sell shorts for 395php each. These even had to be re-stocked due to popular demand. I mean, who doesn’t love aztec prints, right? Speaking of aztecs, their aztec printed tops sell for 350php each. I heard they sell like pancakes so you better get yourself one now. The fun doesn’t stop there, though. Everything’s Mine also offers three different discounts for their customers! Take your pick!
2 in 1 - Buy two items at the same time to get a 5% discount!
Thrice in a Row - Get a 10% discount on your third purchased item!
Fab Five - Share the fun of shopping with your friends! Buy five items to have 15% discount! Combine your orders with your awesome friends. ;)
Here are some photos of the things they sell!
