Sunscreen For All Seasons: Physiogel Daily Defence

Whether it’s winter, spring, summer or fall… One thing remains in my skin care routine and that’s Physiogel Daily Defence sunscreen. We might not have winter in the Philippines but since I travel a lot, I get to use the two types of moisturizers in this line to protect my skin from the harmful rays of the sun or pollutants of whichever city I’m flying into. I never travel without it; if I realize that I’ve forgotten it on the way to the airport, I’d turn back to get it from the house. It’s just as important as my passport!Read more

Paradise Dynasty : Best Xiao Long Bao in Manila

It’s hard to impress someone like me when it comes to dining because I love to try all the best restaurants whenever I’m traveling to a new country. I feel like there are only a few outstanding restaurants in Manila despite the numerous number of establishments opening left and right. I did not expect to be blown away by the food when I was invited to Paradise Dynasty because I’ve never heard of it before and I wasn’t able to try it on my last trip to Singapore. But damn, they have the best Xiao Long Bao in Manila. InRead more

Watsons K-Beauty

Long before Korean drama addiction began in the Philippines, I was already hooked with Korean skincare. It all started when I visited Korea back in the early 2000’s and I fell in love with Etude House. Since then, I would always bug friends and family to bring home Korean makeup and skincare whenever they fly to Seoul. But now, it’s so convenient to buy my preferred brands because most of these Korean products are already available in our local stores and most of them can be found in the Watsons K-Beauty section! With the booming popularity of K-Beauty, Watsons is curatingRead more

Gotta Eat ‘Em All: Pokemon Cakes at Boulangerie22

The Pokemon Go craze may have subsided but my fondness for these Pokemon characters will never go away. Or maybe I’m just too old to be playing games because I think most millenials are still hooked thanks to their recent update and 2nd generation Pokemons. Haha! Be the best that no one ever was and bring one of these Pokemon Cakes from Boulangerie22 to a birthday party or for no occasion at all! These will surely put a smile on anyone’s face especially if they’re people like me who grew up in the 90s. Pikachu Chocolate Cake (699.00) Isn’t PikachuRead more

Create Legacies with THE Platinum Plan

If there’s one person that I need to thank for being where I am today, it’s my mother. But she thinks otherwise because she is most thankful for @FCObigboy for picking me up at my lowest and showing me the right path. This guy was there for me when I was feeling lost, uninspired and took me out of my ‘sheltered’ state. He is not afraid to point out mistakes and taught us how to grow to become better men and women. I’m not yet 100% sure with what I want to do with my life; we could be 40,Read more

RIOT Makeup Brush Set | My Current Makeup Faves

I recently discovered this posh but very affordable makeup brush brand called RIOT BRUSHES on Instagram. It was started by a very young entrepreneur named Rya Petines because of all the expensive and imported makeup brush sets that most beginner beauty junkies can’t afford. So lo and behold, she created this Riot Girl Complete Set for only P2,500. (Tip: She has special discounts for students!) It includes the following (15) brushes: Powder Brush Angled Flat Top Kabuki Paddle Foundation Brush Angled Brush Flat Contour Fan Concealer Buffer Angled Liner Smudge Brush Bullet (crease) Brush Blending Brush Pencil Brush Shader AngledRead more
