Don’t you just love it when you’re makeup works just as hard as you?

The highly anticipated Philippine launch of L’Oreal’s newest line of long-wearing #NeverFail makeup called INFALLIBLE marks our farewell to makeup meltdown! The lasting power of these products are crazy, and we were able to road-test them last Wednesday over a 30-minute workout, cocktails, and a quick shoot, to see just how well it fights fading, sweat, and food.

5 Things You Need to Know Before Getting Gel Nail Polish

I was clueless about the miracle that was Gel nail polish until about two months ago, when I started planning for our annual company Christmas party. It was also very fortunate for me to find that a local salon near my place offers a promo for an ORLY Gel Mani-Pedi for only Php 600. Normally, other salons offer it at Php 600 for a gel mani, or a gel pedi, but never both. I couldn’t pass up on the chance to finally try it out, and so I did!

For those asking which salon this was, it’s called Cre8...

REVIEW: Mauve Hair by Azta Urban Salon

Last December 27, just a day after the long Christmas break started, I visited Azta for another hair coloring session. It’s always fun to have my hair colored at Azta. I had pink hair then, and the roots were already getting too long for comfort. For that particular hair coloring session, we chose to go with the Mauve hair color, a newly introduced color in their Funky Shades line.

To be honest, I was really scared to try it out. I loved my pink hair...

Turning Playtime ON with OFF! Lotion

If there’s one thing the Philippines was known for being champ, it’s having the first ever recorded dengue epidemic on the world. This isn’t exactly anything to be proud of, and even in more recent years, we have been consistently on the top 10 countries harboring the highest number of dengue cases worldwide. This would explain just how much mothers are overprotective with their children when it comes to mosquito bites during outdoor playtime.

Small but terrible

The concern, however, is not lim...

2016 In Review

While most people spend their time meditating and planning during the last few days of the year as a form of reflection, I choose to write my year-end essay. It’s something I always look forward to before the year ends, to help me remember the good things that happened as the year comes to an end, and start the new year with gratitude and positivity in my heart.

Some of the highlights of my year were spent with teammates, people I consider friends now...

REVIEW: Bing Seoul – Number 1 Korean Dessert

There’s a new dessert place at SM Hypermarket, which is just right across our office. It’s called Bing Seoul, and it specializes on the shaved ice Korean dessert called Bing Su. For those who are not familiar with Bing su, Bing Su is very alike the Filipino halo-halo, only with less toppings. While the Pinoys like to liberally add toppings to their shaved ice dessert, the Koreans keep it simple with three or four toppings at the most.

REVIEW: Pi Breakfast and Pies (The Grove, Pasig)

So it dawned on me that I’ve never blogged about one of my favorite all-day breakfast places, Pi Breakfast and Pies. I just discovered this from a co-worker’s post, and seeing a photo of their picture-perfect Eggs Benedict made me just want to visit right then and there. This was way back in April. I have been dropping by occasionally since for random weekend dates, team lunches, and for days that require a good pick-me-up cake...

COSPLAY: Team Valor’s Candela from Pokémon Go

Will be spending the rest of the holiday season trying to finish all the blogging backlogs I have! Wish me luck!

Back in October, our company had our quarterly townhall and decided to make Pokemon as the theme of the event. Now I wasn’t really a big fan of Pokemon, and while I did spend a few months playing Pokemon Go, it quickly lost its magic on me. However, I did want to participate for my team...

Tis the Season to be SEPHORA Glammin’

There are so many reasons to love Christmas — aside from the warm feelings that come from this season of love and gift-giving, Christmas celebrations are plenty as well! I personally enjoy themed parties — it gives me the freedom to glam up and dress up with my friends. Of course, there’s also the 13th month pay, which allows me to splurge a little on makeup when I normally wouldn’t if it were another month of the year.

Inspired by hours of window shopping on Sephora...
