Physiogel Daily Defence Apple Experiment

I’m sure you’re wondering, “What does an apple have to do with skin care?”. Well, I tried out an experiment to see the difference of using the right sunscreen brand VS a cheaper face cream. I’m currently using Physiogel Daily Defence with SPF 15 so I’ll use that and a moisturizer that I bought from the drugstore. You can try it out yourself by preparing the following items: Physiogel® Daily Defence Protective Day Cream Light SPF 15 Any facial cream for comparison (I’ll call mine “Brand X”) Apple Knife STEP ONE: Cut the apple into half, revealing two equal innerRead more


Fifth Rack Concept Store @ BF Homes

If you’re from the South and don’t want to go all the way to Manila just to look for unique shopping finds, I suggest passing by FIFTH RACK CONCEPT STORE @ BF HOMES in Aguirre first. This fashion and lifestyle shop was created by the same owner as Row 101 Popup. It’s not just a great venue for shoppers, but also for small businesses that are just starting out and don’t want to shell out too much money on rent. Most of the brands found in the store are only present online and during bazaars so Fifth Rack is aRead more


Contadina by Del Monte x Nigella Lawson

One fact about myself that is not prominent in my blog (because it’s mostly about makeup and travel) is that I LOVE to cook. I’ve never had any formal training of any sort in the kitchen but I think I inherited my mom’s special ability to whip up fantastic dishes without looking at the recipe. We never measure our ingredients so we base it on taste and estimate it ourselves. My favorite thing to experiment on is always pasta dishes. It’s the easiest thing to cook up especially when it’s unplanned and I need to feed all the hungry stomachsRead more


Physiogel Daily Defence Range Launch

I just got back from a 5-day trip to Bangkok and as usual, the weather was as hot as its food! It was a business trip so I had to move around a lot. The cab drivers there aren’t exactly friendly so I prefer to take long walks on their BTS (train) skywalk. There are a lot of similarities between the streets of Bangkok and Manila especially with the presence of messy side street vendors, pollution and terrible traffic (*yet, I still keep coming back for the amazing food, shopping and culture*) so I keep myself protected with Physiogel’s first-everRead more


Mia Maison Home Fragrances

The thing I miss the most whenever I travel is the comfort of my own home. Having the exact type of pillows I like, the firmness of my bed, my dog beside me and the ambience of my cozy room. Mia Maison Home Fragrances is a high-quality LOCAL brand that I’ve been buying for over a year now. I’m the one in charge of our household’s toiletries and that includes room fragrances like these. Every corner of our house has either a diffuser, purifier, ionizer or room spray to make sure it smells great day in and day out. Here, I’llRead more


Wasteland Wonderland: TICKLES SM Megamall

Oh, Tickles!! This shop brings back so many fond memories from the 90’s. I remember that I always look forward to visiting their stores whenever we would go to the mall. It’s practically a wasteland of cute things that we don’t need but want. I could spend hours rummaging through all the things at their latest and biggest branch to date – SM MEGAMALL. The carnival-inspired store is located at the lower ground of SM Mega A. It’s very hard to miss because of its unique storefront. Here’s a peek of what’s inside: I have a huge appetite for allRead more
