UPDATED SKINCARE ROUTINE

March 29, 2017

It’s been a long time since I last posted something about skincare. I’m still not an expert but I’m very much still an avid enthusiast. Over the past year, I have given much more thought on what goes on my face and by now, I think I’ve pretty much got it. These products that I’ve been using for the past five months are now my skincare staples. I’ve never bought products more than once but I find myself restocking these twice a month! They’re doing their job on my skin and I’m very thankful for that. Continue Reading

BEAUTY WITHIN REACH: MY BEAUTYMNL EXPERIENCE

January 12, 2017

If you told me a year ago that I would actually be interested in beauty stuff, I would have laughed at your face followed by an eye roll and a death stare. As a child, I have always disliked being made up — my older sister can attest to that. I hated putting make up on my face and I never even bothered with skincare. The first time I used lotion was during my freshman year in highschool (even though my mom always bugged me about it), and my first time to really use a facial wash was during my freshman year in college. Can you believe how much of a noob I was? Continue Reading

BIRTHDAY HAUL

November 30, 2016

Because my 60-day shopping ban is officially over and I just turned 21, I splurged a little and decided to buy myself some stuff! Now, I wasn’t really planning on getting the two out of the three packages but they were generous enough to gift me with discount coupons so I knew I just couldn’t resist. I was just going to get the culottes but I thought, hey why not add some skincare/hair/make-up stuff and a pair of jeans that I’ve been dying to have as well? I mean, it’s not everyday that I’m being given coupons to use for my shopping so I might as well just grab the chance. So here are the items that I got for myself from Copper, BeautyMNL, and Shopee.

DRUGSTORE SKINCARE ROUTINE

November 12, 2016

I have seriously never imagined myself to be blogging about skincare because 1) skincare isn’t my priority, and 2) I don’t think I’d look the part as a skincare blogger. But now that I’m finally putting my skin as a part of my priorities, and I’m now taking a conscious effort to improve, if not maintain, my skin, I think I can really be an effective skincare blogger. HAHA. Not that I’m a pro but I think I have figured out what works best for me. I have blogged about my first serious skincare regimen with Soul, and after two months of using it, I can really say that it was effective for me. I didn’t break out as much and my pimple spots have really lightened and disappeared. But I am a lazy person, I hated having to line up at a bank to pay. So I weren’t able to follow through with that routine. I figured that I should go and try out a regimen with products that are easily and readily available at drugstores. (Also because, I received a huge gift certificate and I decided to spend it all on skin products. Lol.) Continue Reading

THE CUT: CHOOSING A MIRRORLESS CAMERA

October 30, 2016

Whenever I’m deciding to buy something crucial (a.k.a those that would cost a lot), it always takes me more than a month and even then, I’m still not sure whether I made the right decision or not. I mean, I do my research and I ask around from friends who I know has knowledge on what I’m seeking advice for, and I always consult my moral compass—my ever practical boyfriend. Lol. But somehow, I still keep feeling as though I still haven’t done enough. So I decided, why not just make a segment on my blog of me soliciting for your advice? Haha! A year before, I wouldn’t even consider this but since people are now commenting on my blog posts (thank you everyone!! I’m the happiest when I read and reply to your messages <3), I thought it’s worth a shot.

BRUNCH PLEASE: RUSTIC MORNINGS BY ISABELO

September 12, 2016

A few weeks back, Tim and I checked out this restaurant at Marikina. I’ve been meaning to go for the longest time and I’m so happy Tim agreed to take me! I’ve first heard of this place from Zomato and I was quickly lured by the bright and airy ambiance — I am such a sucker for beautiful interiors. Continue Reading

SKINCARE REVIEW: SPOT ME CLEAR BY SOUL SKINCARE AND COSMETICS

SKINCARE REVIEW: SPOT ME CLEAR BY SOUL SKINCARE AND COSMETICS

Ever since I was a teenager, I never really had a problem with pimples. Of course I break out (with one or two zits) during that time of the month but I was generally pimple-free. Then came the Great Break Out of 2015. I was a senior college student which meant I was busier than ever and my skin suffered. The sleepless nights and stress took a toll on my face and I kept having pimple on my chin. What used to only be three days of extreme insecurity (sponsored by the nasty pimple) became only three days of confidence because I swear, just as one pimple is drying up and healing, another one is threatening to pop up. SO STRESSFUL. So since last year (when I came to a realization that St. Ive’s apricot scrub isn’t doing anything for me anymore), I’m constantly on the look out for skincare products that would help me break out less.
