Keeping Things Colorful This 2016

Wednesday, December 30, 2015

2015 has truly been a wonderful year for me as it was full of adventures. Through ups and downs, I know I was able to stood up and fight for what I truly believe in. I had to say that the challenges I've been true are no joke and I'm just happy I got out of it.

This 2016, I swore to make all things in my life colorful. I'm in my game face as I ready for what's ahead. Thanks to Caronia for the heads up to keep things colorful and I know this is the perfect time to do so.

I painted my nails with the frosted Sweet Surprise to attract a sunny 2016. I added a hint of glitter to add sparkle on it.

Luwak White Koffie: The Coffee Game Changer

Saturday, December 26, 2015

As what Ross from Friends said, "I don't wanna spend the rest of my life drinking cappuccino with a "K". 

So am I Ross, so am I.

I've been very hesitant in buying / drinking 3-in-1 coffee not only do they taste overly sweet but also, the spirit of coffee isn't present on it. From then on, I became a fan of coffee houses and their specialties. But upon trying the Luwak White Coffee, looks like I'm gonna be loving a cup of coffee from sachets again so that I can start my day right without going to a cafe that much anymore.

Holiday Beauty Haul: Korean Beauty Products!

Friday, December 25, 2015

'Tis the season to be all out splurgy because hey, it's the holiday season! This year, I've promised myself to invest more on skin care rather than on makeup. Though, utilizing your face as a good canvass could be a good practice for artistic skills, I'd rather prefer wake up on a good morning and take a good, no-filter selfie. :p

With all my obsession in Korean cosmetics, I've decided to put my money to the beauty products from Etude House and Tony Moly. Situated in a strategic location in Alabang Town Center, I've always passed through them but wasn't able to get my hands on to their products till mid this year.   

Get to know the beauty products I've bought just in time for the holidays and you might just want them for yourselves, too! 

Hair's Holiday Ready with Jing Monis Salon!

Monday, December 14, 2015

For the longest time, I've been wanting to tame my tresses from my past hair makeover by having my split ends trimmed over at the nearest salon. But with time as my biggest opponent, I had to move my schedule most of the time till nothing has happened until recently.

Just in time for the holiday season, I'm ecstatic to be having Jing Monis Salon (yes, the famous celebrity salon of the stars) to do special works on my hair!

Beautiful Inside & Out With Myra Facial Wash

Saturday, December 5, 2015

The weather starts to chill and extra tender loving care to our skin should be prioritized in this kind of season.

I personally invest on good skin care products that would preserve my skin's great condition given that my skin tends to dry easily.

Upon receiving this beautiful floral tin can with Myra Facial Wash Products and a blue Aquazorb towel, I'm ecstatic to find out its wonders and why does it appeal to the Filipina taste.

Both the Myra® VitaSmooth and VitaWhite Facial Wash - Moisturizing and Facial Wash is enriched with antioxidant Vitamin E  beads which protect and nourish skin to help keep it healthy with a youthful glow.
Since I'm not into whitening my face, I gave the Myra® VitaSmooth and VitaWhite - Moisturizing Facial Wash a try and results were beyond what I expected. 

The soft scent of the facial wash was prominent as I opened the tube. Lather of the product may not be that much (maybe because I'm used to foam cleansers), but this facial wash was able to make my skin smooth in an instant. As if I've already placed powder on it! For Php 70 - Php 75 pesos, this can be a head start to teens to young adults who are starting to maintain their skin. Like me! But the best thing about this product is that it's hypoallergenic. Given my sensitive skin, it didn't cause any rashes and instead, it even complimented my skin and made it smoother.

But like any skin care regimen, it wouldn't be complete if you nourish yourself holistically. Skin care should be done inside and out, such as sleeping on time and taking your trusted Vitamin E capsule, to help your skin to be at its best!

What about you? What's the most important step in your skin care routine?

Best Ramen for 3rd Year Anniversary Celebration

Friday, December 4, 2015

As of writing, it's the 3rd Anniversary of me and my boyfriend. Duhh, as if it's not in the title. 

Contrary to some couple nowadays, we are the laid back ones who prefer hunting places to eat and immerse ourselves to different cuisines. Thanks to his friend Cris, we've found the best ramen place
in the south!

Ramen Yushoken resides along the compound of Molito Mall in Alabang. It can be found along the strip of other asian restaurants like Yoree Korean BBQ.
"Their ramen is derived from "Ramen God" Kazuo Yamagishi, the little blue statue found on their shelves. He is the most revered and influential ramen personality in Japan today. Having invented the popular tsukemen or "dipping ramen", more than 100 chefs who worked under Yamagishi have opened their own restaurants across Japanese, featuring Tsukemen on their menus."

Anniversary Dinner - Yushoken - Patty Villegas -9

We were welcomed by this menu that also serves as a place mat at the same time! Talk about less wastes! There was a category on this menu (right side) where it discusses the Ramen Yushoken 101 in the menu slash place mat. It is a great guide for newbie to Japanese cuisine who want to get the best out of their moolahs. It tackles the four different base sauces in their menu, description of side dishes and common ramen etiquettes that we surely want to keep in mind. Also, I'll add on there that their ramen is not available for delivery just cause nobody can't indulge in a cold ramen. Eeew!

Next Favorite Walking Shoe: Skechers GO FLEX WALK

Monday, November 30, 2015

These past few days, I've seen myself in hectic schedule with work lately that I literally have to chase public transportation rides just to reach my destination on time.. on heels. If you're a girl, you know how painful it is to walk in certain distances. Most especially when you have to choose to bring extra footwear to workplace. Dyahe naman if magdadala pa ng slippers para comfy kapag nasa bus or train diba?

A Visit at Honey Creme Premium Ice Cream

Sunday, November 22, 2015

Late last October, my brother and I went killing time around Fort area while waiting for dad to fetch us. It was an interesting Halloween celebration in the area as stalls and boutiques got their own strategies to lure kids who went trick-or-treating.

While walking around SM Aura, I've seen from a far the Honey Creme store. I've had that sinked in for a moment and thought, "Yes, it's the premium ice cream which offers cotton candy over a cup of ice cream".

Why We Should Give GrabBike A Try

Sunday, November 15, 2015

I wasn't aware that last November 11 was the first day of the GrabBike Beta Test on Makati and BGC. Since I was running short on my cash on hand, I decided to give this a try since my destination would be around Makati area only.

Easy Peasy Way to Whiten Skin with Luminous Glutathione Patch

Thursday, November 12, 2015

Last year, I underwent a full body bleaching from a trusted dermatologist just to see if their is realness in the instant whitening with the said treatment. I've attended 8 sessions and the results were truly visible after weeks of doing this.

The con of this kind of bleaching though is that I have to be locked inside the bathroom with the cream in my body and watch a full movie until the whitening mixture subsides in my skin properly.

Right now, whitening is not much of a burden anymore because there is a US made skin care product that has a unique but effective glutathione that delivers system through the skin--Luminous Glutathione Patch. This product is US FDA approved glutathione product which underwent tedious scientific research by its company.

10 Things to Know When Dealing With Lady Tauruses

Monday, November 9, 2015

Are you fond of learning someone’s zodiac sign to know what’s their personality like? I wasn't a fan of linking a person's characteristics to her / his zodiac sign until I got influenced by some of my friends.

Since my birthday falls on May 11 year you-don't-need-to-know, I fall under the Taurus sign. Later on, I see myself doing the nod of approval when reading, everything about a Taurus reflected who I am now.

Just to give you hints on how to deal with Tauruses, below are some of the must-remember things to befriend us!

1. We're normally placid, but also stubborn 

Don't we just hate it when we are asked to do a certain thing in a bossy way? I always believe people can ask a favor without sounding too upfront. Ask nicely, and it can be done by a Taurus way beyond what you expect.

We tend to get stubborn if you don't make us realize the reason behind what you're asking for. If you feel like you're a boss and still wants to settle with reprimanding tasks in your own way, see number two.

Southside Alert: Wingstop ATC is Now Open!

Monday, November 2, 2015

Wingstop has been prevalent this year in the central business districts of Makati and Taguig for its chicken goodness. I can't help but get curious of what it has in store since it made noise in the internet for its takeover, especially in their opening at Glorietta 2.

Well finally, they've opened their doors to the south were another market has been waiting to taste their tasty chicken wings and tender bites!

I was excited for its opening in Alabang Town Center, which I am mostly at after office hours or during weekends, because of its two thumbs up reviews. Though I am not a fan of chicken wings, I thought I'll give it a try and see if I can have a good relationship with chicken wings.

Beauty Review: Farmstay Oil-Free UV Defence Sun Cream

Sunday, October 18, 2015

Being the workaholic me during days and nights, I can't help but frequently wonder how my skin would prematurely age because of the UV light omitted by the screen monitor. With this, I make sure that my basic skin regimen is included with a dependable sunblock to protect my skin from unwanted aging.

The Farmstay Oil-Free UV Defence Sun Cream has captured my attention from its packaging alone. Adapting its design from the sun, the reflective box does tell how it blocks both UVA and UVB, protects the skin from the sun for everyday life, leisure and outdoor activities and minimize possible skin irritation.

For those of you who don't know Farmstay yet, it is a korean brand that offers innovative skincare and makeup. Each of their products contain active ingredients derived from natural and organic sources to ensure every cream, cleanser and essence is good for the skin.

It comes with a nozzle which is pretty nice since I tend to control and maximize every pinch I do with my products (just like any woman would). :p

If I am to rank the most posted photos and videos in Twitter and Instagram here in the Philippines, it would definitely be a sighting of an eye-catching artsy wall in Makati or BGC. No need to curate anything, just find the right angle, pick the best non-jeje filter, and voila! Do you agree?

It's such a great feeling that millenials nowadays are hooked up to different kinds of arts lately, from concerts, street art, spoken word poetry (which became viral just recently!) and etc. which makes us value our culture and roots as a local even more on this digital age. With just a good snap, social media networks seem like a creative platform by artistic individuals with a pursuit of getting affirmed by the general public.

Hello to the Good Hair Days with SYOSS Hair Care Series

Sunday, October 11, 2015

Recently, I've been in a roller coaster of emotions PMS-ing plus stress with loads of work and other stuff going on around me. Because of that, stress had took its toll and me and I've barely had the time to maintain myself and my tresses as well. 

The weather has been crazy lately and I really hate it when I can't tame it. (Given the fact that I commute everyday going to work!!) There are times when I'll came to realize when there's a heavy downpour then later on comes the unbearable heat outside.

Good thing I got the renowned Japanese Hair Care brand SYOSS for the pampering I need to tame my unruly locks! :p

BYS Philippines Celebrates Three Glam Years!

Wednesday, September 30, 2015

I can still remember the first drugstore makeup haul I did almost a year ago to make way for Danah and Stacy's makeup workshop at Azta Urban Salon in SM Jazz Makati. In search for the perfect eyeshadow to complement my daily look, the saleslady recommended this small nude eyeshadow from BYS. This product is such a lifesaver for my day to night look from school to events that I go to!

Shop your way to Korea with Etude House and AirAsia Philippines

Saturday, September 19, 2015

I became a convert recently when I discovered the wonders of Korean cosmetics. At first, I wonder how were they able to market their beauty products locally given the fact that common filipina complexion are way different than theirs. But then, many of my friends are really hooked up and I can't help but get into the bandwagon as well. To mention my go-to Korean products now, it would definitely be Etude House! <3

Disclaimer: So much babbling going on for the rest of the post. 

Did it ever came into your senses when you said to yourself, "I'm over it already. What happens happens"?

I don't know that giving a f*** about everything is a necessity as you turn old. We sometimes hate our parents for it, but hey. This attitude is inevitable and you will sooner or later realize that you're slowly becoming a part of the cult. 

PCD Over and Over Again at All Time Low Featuring The Maine Concert Live in Manila

Sunday, September 6, 2015

I was first introduced to Dear Maria Count Me In back when I was in third year high school. Since then, I've been following All Time Low, their latest EPs and album releases, and even Full Frontal. Thanks to Jonas the boyfriend (aka the more fangirl between the two of us on All Time Low) because he kept me intact to the band. Moreover, some of the All Time Low songs had become the soundtrack of my life; Weightless, Therapy and Tidal Waves to mention a few.

So yeah, like any hustlers out there, I didn't miss the chance to see this band for the second time around. The first time I saw them was at Bazooka Rocks 2 (see my photo diary of the festival here). The first time was truly a night to remember and not seeing them once again would tear me apart. 

Due to financial constraints, I was able to buy my tickets at the day of the concert itself. I'm feeling a little nervous because I might not get a good slot. But then, God is good and I was able to score a lower box ticket for me and my boyfriend around 4 pm.

Little did I found out that they were starting to sell official All Time Low and The Maine Merchandise at the same time so I zoomed my way near the line going inside the line since that's where the tent for the merch is located.

Everyone's a little panicky since the shirts and other merchandise are selling like pancakes. Luckily, I get to score the last  two medium maroon ATL shirts.

Here's some shots by THE Tom Falcone during soundcheck (which I wished I was able to witness). But thanks to the All Time Low page for at least uploading these photos to cure the PCD in me.
