The extremely hot weather in Manila only means one thing…. It’s time to pack your sunscreen and swimsuits because summer is officially here!! To kick off this season, let me share my review of the Belo SunExpert line and their latest products.

Dream come true! <3 That’s why I’ve fully prepared myself as early as now by stocking up on these sun care products from Belo. My favorite would be this Belo SunExpert UltragentleRead more

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

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

Staycation at Belmont Hotel Manila + Annie The Musical at Resorts World Manila

I started a tradition last year to have staycations instead of holding parties during my birthday. That way, I can get to relax and unwind by myself or celebrate with a smaller group. I sent my parents and friends to Discovery Shores Boracay during my birthday weekend last 2015. For this year, I decided to spend it with my sister at Belmont Hotel in Newport City, across Resorts World Manila. For our first meal, we had a heavy brunch at Cafe Belmont. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much since I’ve never heard of the restaurant prior to my stay. But ORead more

10 Things Every Pink-Obsessed Person Must Own

I’ve always been attracted to all things pink ever since I was young. At one point I was ashamed to admit it because of the fear of being called ‘maarte’ or too girly by my sporty friends from our volleyball team. Eventually, when I graduated from highschool, I embraced the legally blonde girl in me and started to buy everything in pink. Here are the top 10 favorite pink items that you’ll find in my room: STILETTO 3M SCOTCH TAPE DISPENSER Before this was released locally, my BFF from the US sent me the black version of this (as seenRead more

Makeup Tutorial: Travel with Sephora PH

I’ve never really shared this weird travel fact about myself but I try not to apply any makeup at all when I fly to warmer places while I layer on makeup when I visit countries with a colder climate. In this blog entry, I’m going to share my first package from Sephora Philippines with a simple eyes, cheeks and lips makeup tutorial that I usually do when I’m touring Europe during winter. My tourmates always end up having dry, flaky skin or wind burn on their faces while I’m the only one with unparched skin. I don’t just layer on makeupRead more
