Lessons on Love

This is probably my favorite scene from The Vampire Diaries, where Elena first met Damon and asks him what he thinks she wants. To which Damon answers, “You want what everyone wants. You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger.” And I realized, he was right.

I think that this past year of my life taught me so much about love and debunked everything I’ve come to believe about it...

Yakson House Makati Update: 7th Session Done!

At Yakson House Makati, Philippines

I am finally done with my 7th session! Huzzah! \(`0´)/ Three more sessions to go!

So far, it’s been the usual session with the back massage, facial care and massage, and then the application of the mask. Sometimes, the facial massage comes before the mask application, and sometimes, it comes later. But recently, they have introduced two different types of mask, and even a chest + belly massage!

For the masks, they have the 30 plants pack which is made o...

Review: Basic Brow Grooming c/o BrowHaus, Serendra

Browhaus, Serendra

My best friend Justine and I decided to try out having our eyebrows groomed. We’ve never had brow grooming done professionally before, so we didn’t really know what to expect. We decided to try out Browhaus’ Serendra Branch. Not to mention, I was so excited to show here around The Fort.

Booking an appointment was easy. I called them earlier that day to book an appointment at 4 PM, and later at around 3 in the afternoon to book for Justine...

Day 362 of 364: Debut Coordinating With Team Family

In the middle of coordinating a debut with Mom

Having a debut is fun and all, especially when you’re the debutante, but when you’re the group on the coordinating end, expect to lose sleep and sanity until it’s over. My mom has been pouring work on her friend’s daughter’s debut for months now, coordinating everything from the hotel, program, everything. And as support, we came as part of the team. Dressed the part, of course.

New Year’s Eve Celebration with my Family

Happy New Year~! ♥

My favorite part of the Christmas Holidays will always be the New Year’s Eve celebration, signaling the end of the holiday season and another 365 (or sometimes, 366) days around the Sun. Well, that’s a technical way to look at it. But I always take it as an opportunity to reflect on all the things I’ve done and learned, and how much closer I am to my goals when I started the year.

Our humble Media Noche. Carbs for the New Year!

We love ube...

Why I Want a Cyberya Minigosyo

Why I Want A Cyberya Minigosyo (Photo taken from

In 2013, my dad, who opened a small internet shop, learned a lot of lessons in business in a span of a year. His small internet shop which he opened in December 2012 is going to be closed down in two weeks. And while it pains us to say goodbye to all the invested money and hardwork that was put into his ten-unit internet shop, it taught us a number of lessons...

New Year’s Eve FOTD: Beautiful 2014 Color of the Year Radiant Orchid

Beautiful 2014 : Radiant Orchid

Pantone announced that the 2014 Color of the Year is Radiant Orchid. For New Year’s Eve, I decided to use Radiant Orchid to create my NYE look.

I personally find purple shades really difficult to use, without looking menacing and witchy. I guess it’s the influence of the Disney villains always going for the purple shades to slap on their eyelids...
