Save the Date: 12.12 - Online Fever at ZALORA

So we all know it's just 14 days before Christmas, right? For most people who are stuck at their day jobs, like me. It's so hard to do your last minute Christmas shopping knowing you're pretty much busy the entire day and probably too tired to shop at night. Not to mention how the traffic in Metro Manila is so hellish and how the malls are also filled with last minute shoppers as well!

So what's the most practical way of shopping without compromising your precious time? Online shopping! I even received an exciting news that ZALORA, Asia's leading online fashion destination is having their annual Online Fever sale starting on December 12, 2016.

Era Of Chromatics: Weens Cosmetics Philippines Launches Their Holiday Collection

So I finally decided that I'll put down those nail clippers and stop cutting my nails very short. I'm kind of tired hearing the same remarks that I always get when I'm having my manicure done. So what's the perfect way to show off my "claws"?


Get these babies coated with anything shiny! Fortunately, this season keeps on giving! One of my favorite local brand Weens Cosmetics launches their Holiday Collection. And trust me, the entire collection would put your Christmas decors to shame once you see how spectacularly glam and sparkly they look!


So what's their theme for this collection? Due to popular demand, they came up with QT's "Era of Chromatics" and it's all about Holo or Duo-Chromes!

FREE Manicure & Stress Relieving Hand Massage! Celebrate National Pampering Day with Nailaholics!

Consider this the best excuse to give yourself that much needed day of pampering. 


Mark October 17 on your calendars—because from 10AM to 12 noon, you can head over to any Nailaholics branch nationwide and get a relaxing manicure and free hand massage for free. 

For many, a trip to the nail salon is a rare indulgence. All too often, work and the daily grind of busy schedules keep them from getting the necessary “me-time” that everyone craves and needs. But as Nailaholics celebrates and takes part in the country’s first ever #NationalPamperingDay, the brand hopes to remind everyone that it’s OK to take some time for yourself and indulge. 

Perhaps no other nail salon in the country is better known for having perfected the art of a quick, urban pampering the way Nailaholics has. Their interiors are inviting, their service is efficient, and the promise of getting whisked away from realities of looming deadlines, to-do lists, traffic, and whatever else awaits outside the doors of this quaint Hamptons-themed escape, becomes possible—even if it’s only for a few hours. 

“We get that,” says Arvin Amaro, Marketing Head. “And it’s exactly why we we’re celebrating National Pampering Day. We want to give people who need a break a quick escape where they won’t have anything to worry about. So be sure that you head over to your nearest Nailaholics branch to get pampered for free.”

Chemworld Fragrance Factory Opens Their Largest Branch at SM Megamall

Chemworld Fragrance Factory opens it's 17th and largest branch on the 5th floor of SM Megamall last August 15.


I really wanted to go since my office is just nearby, but can't because it was held during office hours. Fortunately my closest orgmate Francine Lima was available to cover what happened during the Grand Opening, here's her story...

Contact Lens Review: O-Lens Jenith 3 Color Pink

As a kid, it was a dream of mine to be as pretty as Marin from Akazukin Cha Cha. Who wouldn't want to be a mermaid, right? What makes her look stand out is her unique dazzling locks that matches her eyes. I love it. I always wanted to rock pink hair way way back when I saw my idol Xiaxue effortlessly slaying every selfie with it.

Photo from Lemon Angel

Since I'm not yet ready to commit to something as drastic as bleaching my hair to get it pink, the closest I could do for the meantime is to channel Marin through these lenses!


Introducting my first ever pink contacts, the O-Lens Jenith 3 Color Pink from Pinkicon! To be honest, I was second guessing whether I should get these since I thought they wouldn't look as good on morena skin. But I'm glad I didn't let that stop me and I still got them anyway! Find out why! Check out the complete review below!

Contact Lens Review: K2015 Gray (JS)

Most of the time, I find myself more attracted to colored contact lenses with interesting patterns. I love the ones that are so "out there." Especially the ones that provide either a very drastic color change or a very noticeable enlargement to the irises. I think if you're gonna drop the glasses and stick something foreign into your eyes, at least make it different from your regular look. Right?


When I first saw the K2015 Gray (JS) online at Klenspop, my first impression of it was it's just another grey lens that wouldn't do much. But when I got these last month, I was a bit surprised. Compared to the photos on the site, they look a bit different in person. They're mesmerizing when worn, especially outdoors!

Beauty Feature: Blushing Beauty Opens at SM Mall of Asia

When we think about aesthetic clinics, the first thing that comes to mind is they're there for people who wants to look more young or fresh than they were. What we're forgetting is even the young millenials now are just as obsessed about their appearance themselves. Especially now with Facebook Live and Snapchat being the new in thing, it's hard not to look selfie-ready since you'll never know when the cameras come pointing at you!


The interesting discovery I had last weekend was this new pretty cute skin care clinic that caters best for the young image-conscious millenials out there. I ended up there because I got invited by Ms. Abi to their Grand Opening at SM Mall of Asia. This finding was very timely since my skin is starting to look terrible again from all that lack of sleep and the amount of stress that I got the past few weeks.

Breathing Your Way To Beauty: Aqua Mineral Launches the First Salt Room in the Philippines

Before anything else, I'm sorry if I haven't posted anything here for the past few weeks. Going back to working in the corporate world had my hands all tied up. Honestly, I don't have as much time for myself as I did with freelancing. But hey, it's a part of growing up. Trying out new things that will challenge you are the same things that will help you improve to be a better person. However, too much challenges will definitely stress you out. From what I've learned, stress is alright as long as it's "eustress" but if it's "distress" it's the kind of stress that is unhealthy and harmful to the body.


Different people have different ways on dealing with stress. Some get massages, some eat to their heart's desire, some enjoy a bottle of wine and others even smoke. But have you ever tried hanging out at a salt room to make yourself feel better?

Weens Cosmetics Philippines Launches QT Nail Magic Collection

I like wearing nail polish even if my nails aren't the ideal "canvas" when it comes to most nail art. I don't normally wear them before since I usually get my hands dirty when I was a Fine Arts student back then. Every time I do plates I always end up getting whatever gunk and goo on my hands so I figured it wasn't really practical to have my nails done in the first place. Another thing I don't like is when they also tend to leave annoying yellow stains that can't easily be removed by acetone. Ugh.


Luckily now, we have more choices in the market so we don't have to settle with cheap toxic nail polishes anymore. Last May 13, I got introduced to the QT Nail Magic Collection by Weens Cosmetics Philippines at Tra Vinh Authentic Vietnamese Noodles.


Weens Cosmetics is a local brand by Armadale Manufacturing Corp. that also carries different beauty products like nail polish, nail polish, colognes, skin care, hair care, bath / shower, baby care and medicated oil / balms.




What makes it so different is that this brand in particular is the first and only FDA approved brand that manufactures cruelty-free and vegan nail polish locally with the 5-Free Formula. The 5-Free Formula means it's free from the top 5 most harmful carcinogenic chemicals found on most nail polish brands.

Product Review: Swan Dance Kabuki Makeup Brush

Here's a fact: No one likes applying makeup with a scratchy sparse makeup brush. Ever.
Why? It won't help apply and blend your makeup in a seamlessly flawless manner if the bristles are too sparse. Chances are it will end up a looking bit streaky, so don't expect an "airbrushed" look with that application. In addition to that, it will be harder to pickup more product from the pan if the bristles aren't dense enough. And that's not very helpful at all. Isn't it?


For the longest time, I have been contemplating buying any ultra dense makeup brush that I could get my hands on. More specifically, I was eyeing every Oval Paddle Brush, Kabuki Brush and Mushroom Brush in the market. So happy to say that I've already crossed out one from my beauty wishlist.

Bibingka-esk: A Modern Twist to the Traditional Filipino Treat

One of the things that I do love during the Holiday season is when I get to pig out on traditional holiday foods like Lechon, Queso de Bola, Puto Bumbong, Bibingka and many more. Even when the Christmas season is over, I still find myself craving for all of those...especially Bibingka.


Since some of my readers aren't from the Philippines, it might be the first time that you've heard of this seasonal treat. Bibingka is a type of rice cake made with rice flour and coconut milk or water. Other ingredients can vary greatly, but the most common secondary ingredients are rice and milk. It's traditionally cooked in clay pots lined with banana leaves. Curious what it tastes like? No worries, I've met with a Head Baker who wants to popularize Filipino cuisine so that everyone could get to experience having a taste of our famous desserts.

Hear See Experience: A. Refinery Grand Launch at UP Town Center

Every year, I find myself buying new earphones since my favorite ones are cheap and of good quality but INCREDIBLY fragile. It's sad but I already consider it an achievement if my current earphones could even last for more than a year.


I thought to myself than "why not consider other brands?" After all, it wasn't a coincidence that both of my earphones under the same brand and model broke down with just one year of use. During the weekend, I got to attend the Grand Launch of A. Refinery at UP Town Center. Audio Refinery Inc. a new player in the Audio and Lifestyle industry is a retail store that serves as an experience hub for premium audio and lifestyle.

Bioessence Unveils New Product Lines for Different Skin Ages

On my pursuit of trying to be the best version of myself, one of the things that I always wanted to achieve was to have a clear complexion. How you present yourself is a reflection of how you take care of yourself. And we certainly don't want people to think that we can't manage ourselves properly, right?


What I've learned last Friday during the Bioessence Launch that was that you should also consider your age when it comes to buying beauty products particularly skin care products to properly address different skin concerns. For example, why bother slathering on anti-acne products if you're already at your 80's? Let's be honest. There is no such thing as a "miracle product" that could fix all skin problems in just one go.

Contact Lens Review: Clear Color CL101 Brown

If you're on the look out for the most natural brown contact lens in the market, forget everything I've said in the past. THIS IS THE REAL DEAL!


A few years back, I've had an exact similar looking pair like this but it's from another brand. I opted getting one of these very natural looking ones simply because I get tired of being called that I look like a doll or that I look too Kpop-ish sometimes. Mainly because most of my lenses before were the oversized 14.5mm ones that will tend to make you look a bit younger. There are times that I'd get tired of the "cutesy" look and end up wanting a more mature look so I ended up ordering my first regular sized lens and the rest is history.

MELCHORA Party List Launch

Up to now, it's undeniable that there are still double standards in society due to gender stereotyping and discrimination. One thing that irks me sometimes is when some people automatically assume that the word "feminist" equates to crazy irrational man-haters, which is not true at all. As I've mentioned in my past blog post about Because I Am A Girl... Feminism is basically about wanting to have the same rights as men. NOT putting them down but wanting to be viewed as their equals.


Personally, I do not like sharing my political views with everyone because I always thought that my unpopular opinions wouldn't please a lot of people. But when I got invited to the MELCHORA party list launch, I had no second thoughts since their platform is basically similar to what I strongly believe on.

Hair Diaries: Window Shopping at Mofain

The past few weeks up to now is undeniably hot since summer is around the corner. So hot that it's hard to skip a shower anytime. How do you bear living in a tropical country with this heat? I ended up wearing light colored tank tops, rehydrate as often as needed and keep my hair up on a bun.

I'm guessing that most of my girl friends couldn't resist the tempting urge to have their long locks chopped off. And if you did, it can't be helped to be remorseful sometimes and not miss your hair since it's not something you could just grow in a heartbeat.


With all those upcoming weddings and other special occasions coming up, it's that perfect time to showcase a different hairdo! Some hair growth products might help but it probably won't catch up with the date.

Relaxation Time at Bacer Wellness Spa

The first few weeks of March came off as a surprise to me. I've been getting freelance projects from random friends and I'm enjoying every bit of it. Yes, it's a bit challenging at first. But that's how you learn! Stepping out of your comfort-zone will help you grow.


One of the most exciting freelance project that I'm handling right now is I'm rendering illustrations for a children's book for kids with Down Syndrome. It's very interesting and I can't wait for it to come out!

However, doing the illustrations means sitting long hours in front of the laptop. Sometimes sitting all day takes a toll on my body. There are instances that I've experienced spraining my hand and sharp back pains because I forget to take my breaks in between!

Gindependence Day Summer 2016 Media Launch

Recently, I suddenly felt the urge to stay in our refrigerator and never come out. Just like that it was a sign that summer is officially around the corner. So how are you planning to spend yours?


Usually I'd spend mine out of town where I could enjoy the beach and catch up with my relatives during a drinking session. I prefer drinking beer but I'm always outnumbered by my younger cousins who love to drink their special GSM Blue mix among anything else. This was a surprise to me since I've always thought that gins aren't that appealing to the young since it is a bit cheap. Now when I attended the Gindependence Day Summer 2016 Launch, that's where I discovered that the possibilities of cocktail drinks that you could do with it are endless! I'll share some of those concoctions in just a bit, just read on!


So you might be wondering what is the Gindependence Day all about? This is a celebration held at URBN Timog to mark the brand's emancipation from the old and a welcoming of the new. As the market leader in the gin category, Ginebra San Miguel is paving the way for a new mix of gin culture in the Philippines. Standing on its success and popularity in the mass market, the GSMI Gin Brands now plan to reach even greater heights by catering to more premium groups. With a lineup of never-before done activities, GSMI Gin brands will connect with a wider audience and improve the gin experience as a whole.

Eau Thermale Avene Introduces Hydrating Make-up Remover To Filipinas

It's a known fact, sleeping with your makeup on is an ultimate no-no! Cosmetic products exist to help women improve their facial features or cover imperfections. But while an average woman uses 12 different products everyday—which all in all contains about 170 ingredients according to a research by U.S. organization Skin Deep—their desire to look good might do more harm than good especially when proper skin regimen is not practiced.


This is the very reason why Eau Thermale Avène—the leading dermo-cosmetic brand in Europe—recently invited some of the country’s most prestigious beauty and wellness bloggers and members of the media at the Salon Beauvoir in Makati, City to educate them on how to properly care for their skin before, during and after applying make-up.

Contact Lens Review: Lenspop Ellen Panda PM 14 Violet

When I was a bit younger I was really obsessed with the color purple and violet. Just like a bowerbird, instead of collecting everything blue... I used to collect everything that everything close to that color! I was really fond of that color that I even wished to have the same eye color as Elizabeth Taylor. We all know the mutation Alexandria's Genesis is just a myth so basically the closest thing you could ever have to that is having your own purple contacts. However, before it wasn't possible and practical for me to do so because the only contacts available with grade in the market are usually black, grey and brown.


Fortunately now, we're no longer limited to certain designs, sizes and colors! I'm quite delighted to find out that some but not all pink and red lenses are available with grade. Finally, my prayers have been answered!

Introducing my FIRST EVER VIOLET LENS --- The Ellen Panda PM 14 Violet!

Product Review: Proactiv Solution Integrated Acne Treatment System (60 Day Kit)

Growing up, I'm guessing that most of us have been through that awkward phase during our puberty that we have to deal with stubborn acne breakouts. I remembered during my elementary days that I had a big zit on the center of my forehead and had to resort having bangs just to cover it up!


Even as a young adult, some of us still have to live with it due to hormonal imbalance, lifestyle change and most definitely stress. A few months ago, I have encountered a product that caused me to have severe acne breakouts to the extent of having 1-2 pimples a day growing out at that rate! What's worse is it was THAT bad I even had some growing on my neck. So gross.

My Quick Trip to Zoocobia + Blog Giveaway!

At this age, I figured that I'd rather spend my time on memories. Not so much on material things anymore.

Product Review: Magic Potions White Allure Line

As I was doing my regular makeup routine, I was surprised to find out that I've already finished another concealing stick again. It was a bit annoying because as I've recalled I just got my Fashion 21 Perfect Stick a few months ago. I don't usually put much stuff on my face when I had clear skin.

And then it hit me, why focus too much on concealing my skin problems... when I could just focus on a better skincare routine instead? Right? As I've remembered most makeup artist would tell us that your face is a canvas, if it's not primed well then your "masterpiece" wouldn't look as smooth as you want it to be.

As for me, I went on a search to find something that will improve my skin condition. Having too much dark spots on the face takes up time to conceal and is also pricey in the long run. Not cool.

Contact Lens Review: Lenspop Bunny 3 Color Gray

One of the things I found out while I was conducting my thesis survey was regardless of the age, gender, social status and whatsoever. The first thing that people tend to look at first are the eyes.

For certain occasions that I want to look extra pretty or glammed up, I'd tend to work on the eye area as my focal point for my makeup. Just to make my eyes do the talking.


But if my eyes could talk, I think they will tell you how mesmerizing my latest pair from Klenspop are!

Dermcare Giveaway!

In this day of age almost everything seems so fast-paced and instant. A decade ago, it was merely impossible to see the photos that you took at that exact moment. It will take you days to have the negatives of my photos developed and printed. Plus, doing your research at the library is another story!

With most things available in just one click, sometimes it is hard to keep up as you'll end up being burned out. For me, I really felt that I've neglected my body last year and I'm trying my best to make up for it this 2016. In order to keep our body strong and our spirits positive, we must reward ourselves once in a while with relaxation and soothing treatments.
