Photo Diary: An Encounter with Nature at Club Balai Isabel

Tuesday, June 21, 2016

Going back and forth to Metro Manila every weekdays sure is one hell of a trip. The concrete jungle could've taken its toll on me up until I got to break the habit by going on a lake trip one weekend before the month of May officially ends.

Ooops, before you start checking out my photo diary below, click the video below first to see the snippets of the entire Club Balai Isabel trip!

Situated in Talisay, Batangas, Club Balai Isabel offers a unique location for family getaways, group outings, company functions and events. A mere fifteen minutes from Tagaytay ridge, Club Balai Isabel offers an up-close and personal view of the lake and its world-famous volcano: Taal Volcano! The nearest I've been to Taal Volcano before is probably the view deck from Tagaytay. lol

Top 5 Pinoy Brands to Look Forward at Republokal

Sunday, June 19, 2016

Honest to goodness, I am not the kind of person who will splurge more than a thousand bucks on a bazaar. Since I prevent myself from binge buying, I make sure to read reviews of any products I encounter on bazaars online and order them online as well.

This time though, I wasn't able to resist the urge to get myself stuff that I only unearthed at Republokal, a home where extraordinary local brands, entrepreneurs, and artists collaborate to bring something new to the table.

#ImGoingNude with Maybelline Rosy Matte by Color Sensational

Monday, June 13, 2016

Let's face it, Matte lipsticks ain't making as much noise up until Kylie Jenner made a huge deal out of it. I, myself, was a convert from glossy to matte because of this trend. Now, I still don't have any go-to Kylie dupes yet and suggestions are highly appreciated!

The moment I got the RosyMatte by Color Sensational set from Maybelline, I knew I had to do my first ever swatch on the blog just because NUDE MATTE LIPPIES!
