TOP 7: Rainy Day Essentials

Tuesday, June 12, 2018





Rainy days are here! I know most of us prefer dry, sunny days over a gloomy weather but just because it's dark and damp outside doesn't mean we can't enjoy the day. This is why I decided to share with you my rainy day essentials so we can all have a little bit of sunshine everywhere we go.

TECH TIME: hoco premium product

Thursday, June 7, 2018




Hey everyone! I'm back with another tech accessories review and this time I'm featuring a brand I'm not familiar with, hoco. I've noticed my trusty Apple EarPods are looking a little distressed, overworked and begging for retirement. So the other day in Trinoma, I bought a couple of stuff from a tech accessories kiosk. The Hoco Charging Cable and In-Ear Headphones.

EVER BILENA: Kris Life Kit

Tuesday, June 5, 2018


Hello guys! If you're a makeup enthusiast or social media frequenter you'd probably know by now that Kris Aquino is Ever Bilena's newest celebrity endorser. Early this year, Kris graced the counters of Ever Bilena pointing out her favorites and not long after, the Kris Life Kit was released.





BEAUTY LIBRARY: Feminine Mist

Saturday, June 2, 2018


Hey everyone! I was in Rustan's Supermarket a few days ago and saw quite an intriguing product on display, the Beauty Library Feminine Mist. Actually I've been looking for something like this for some time now. After experiencing hours of plane travel on several occasions, I found myself wishing for a feminine wash in a spray bottle I could easily use inside the limited space of aircraft lavatories. After several failed attempts at finding one, finally we have it available locally!


STAYCATION: Makati Shangri-La

Wednesday, May 30, 2018


Hey everyone! The summer heat has been so extreme in the past days here in Manila and an overnight stay at the Makati Shangri-La was just the thing I needed to refresh. I like visiting this beautiful city and come back to this well renowned hotel due to endless reasons I'll be sharing throughout this post.




MESSY BABY

Tuesday, May 8, 2018


Hey everyone! I'm back with another review on a brand that's proudly Philippine made, Messy Bessy. I first got to try their hand sanitizer a couple of years ago after seeing it on display at Cupcakes by Sonja. I remember it was red velvet scented and came in an adorable spray bottle. Back then, seeing the logo reminded me so much of the international brand, The Balm Cosmetics. I later found out that Messy Bessy is home grown and has been in the industry for a decade now. 



BELO: SunExpert

Friday, April 27, 2018


Hello everyone! I'm back with another review on several products I got from Sample Room. If you're still unaware, Sample Room is the only sampling website in the Philippines dedicated to empowering consumers with the privilege to try out certain products before buying. It's unfortunate that our local market doesn't prioritize sampling and only offer trial products to purchasing customers. What about those who don't want to splurge on stuff they know nothing about? Good thing Sample Room debuted in 2012!


MANFROTTO: Mini Tripod

Saturday, March 24, 2018


Hey everyone! I am back with another tech accessory review and this time it's about the Monfrotto Pixi Mini Tripod. Last year when Sam and I went to Disney World, I couldn't have taken beautiful photos of us together without the tripod I brought with me. It was actually a freebie from one of the events I attended and it got broken a few days after our trip. I haven't been on the lookout for a replacement but after seeing Henry's branch in Trinoma, I just knew it was about time to get a good quality tripod.


BIORÉ: UV Perfect Spray

Sunday, March 18, 2018


Hey everyone! Summer is just around the corner and that means more quality time with family and friends. I'm pretty certain you don't want to ruin your precious vacation with sunburn so make sure you're protected from the sun's harmful rays. As for me, despite already having a holy grail sunscreen, I still enjoy trying out other products that won't leave your wallet crying.


MAC: Lightful C Quick Finish Compact

Monday, March 12, 2018


Hey everyone! Last weekend I attended the Project Vanity 10th Year Anniversary celebration at the Shangri-la Plaza with good friend and fellow blogger Christine of allaboutbeauty101. The event, as expected, was a huge success! I was able to meet Ms. Liz Lanuzo, the rest of the PV team and several other fellow bloggers who graced the occasion.


Before heading home, Christine and I did what every makeup enthusiast does when in Rustan's, snoop around! After checking out several products we both love, we ended up visiting the MAC counter and boy was I elated to see my new found favorite, the MAC Lightful C Quick Finish Compact with SPF 50/PA++++, wait for it... on SALE.


HELLO KITTY: Expert Complexion Sponge

Monday, March 5, 2018


Let's welcome this special month with all things cute because... why not? Kidding aside, I'm celebrating my birthday month and it's crazy how stuff I love from my childhood are still in the mainstream like Hello Kitty! Over the past years, we've seen so many Sanrio merchandise for all ages. Today, almost everywhere you look, you'll find beloved Sanrio characters on clothes, shoes, school supplies and even makeup! Like this Hello Kitty Expert Complexion Sponge I saw in Watsons.


URBAN DECAY: NAKED 3 Palette

Friday, March 2, 2018


Hey everyone! I didn't want to mention not having any blog posts for weeks but it seems the best way to start this entry. I've been trying to upload blog photos directly from Macbook and the process is slowing me down a bit hence the lack of blog entries. Being a Microsoft user my entire life, I still have a lot to learn about Apple so please bear with me.


For this entry, I am reviewing my very first Urban Decay product ever, drum roll please... The NAKED 3 palette! I've been wanting to get my hands on any of the Naked palettes for years now but being a newbie in makeup made me wonder if it's really practical to get all three. After carefully considering the price, wearability of shades and the looks I'm able to pull off, I finally zeroed in on this palette with rosy-hued neutrals.


2017 Favorites: Tech Accessories

Wednesday, February 28, 2018


Can you believe January went by so fast? I was suppose to post my 2017 favorites on all categories under January but I didn't have enough time to get them done. Oh well, it's never too late to share with you my favorite tech accessories so here they are.




2017 FAVORITES: Body Care

Saturday, January 27, 2018





Hello everyone! In the past weeks I've posted my 2017 favorites in the skin care and makeup category. Today, I'm back with my 2017 Favorites, body care edition. I may have mentioned several body and hair care products in the past but today is extra special because I'll be including all my favorites for 2017. Let's get started!

2017 Favorites: Makeup

Wednesday, January 10, 2018



Can you believe it's 2018 already? My last post for 2017 featured all my favorite skincare products for that year so if you haven't, please do check it out by clicking this link. I also mentioned that this time I'll be including more categories for my 2017 favorites so now I'm back with this long list of products that made it to the makeup category. If you're into makeup or just about to plunge into the cosmetics world then you're in for a treat.




I have to warn you though that I'm a makeup enthusiast who's into simple everyday makeup and my favorites are based on products I've used so far. If I mention a favorite concealer, it may not be the best among all the ones available in the market. I'm simply featuring the stuff I love to use based on the products I've already tried which may be limited compared to those who live and breathe makeup. With that out of the way, let's continue shall we?
