Skincare | St. Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Moisturizer

I may have told you before how I used to like my face being dry and squeaky clean. I didn’t think much of skin care in the past and as long as I washed my face with soap before bed, I thought I was treating it well. If I got a blocked pore (which happened only all. the friggin. time.) I would be like “how dare you! I washed you with soap last night you ungrateful b*tch.”

For a long time, I’ve neglected the fact that Hydration is key to good skin and I used to think that moisturizers were only for people who have dry skin and live in colder countries. A little research and a few moisturizers later, I’ve proven my old self wrong. I am now a convert and have repented for  my sin against my skin. Whether you have dry skin or oily, living in North Pole or the Philippines, you. need. hydration. Drinking water isn’t enough because the skin is the last to benefit from the water we take, so our skin needs a little more boost. Trust me, your future self will thank you later. 🙂

One western drugstore beauty product I’ve tried is this moisturizer from St. Ives : the Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Moisturizer.

Eats | Milkbox Alabang Town Center

Milkbox ATC

Life is short. Eat that damn dessert.

I am a self-confessed sugar addict. I cannot have a meal without dessert. Heck, I might even have dessert BEFORE the meal. Or better yet, (eyes glimmer at the thought…) Why don’t we just have dessert for the whole meal?!

The gods of desserts must have heard me and sent Milkbox here on earth. A cafe that serves all day waffles, ice cream and milkshakes?! Shush! Say no more!

I’m extremely lazy when it comes to skin care. Make up remover? pff… exfoliator? whatever. Until recently, the worst thing imaginable happened. I got a bad case of Adult Acne.

Adult acne is what nightmares are made of. It’s so horrible I wish it upon people I hate. “I hope you get really bad acne, b*tch!” is what I imagine myself saying out of pure anger. Waking up in the morning having a shit ton of pimples is no fun at all. And thanks to acne, I’m forced to actually use stuff and suddenly, I found myself with a legitimate answer to “what’s your skin care regimen like?” Where my usual response would be something like “ehh… I sleep?”

And so my journey began towards better skin care. I mean, I’m still no expert. I’m also still trying to figure out what good products are out there for my Combination skin type.

Skincare | Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Cover & Bright Fit

Skincare | Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Cover & Bright Fit

Let me start by saying that buying this BB cream was an impulse buy. I did not do extensive research online before I bought this, so yes, this is a risky purchase. What can I say? I like to live dangerously.

I was curious though. I mean, what is all this hoo haa about BB Creams and are they sooo great? I just had to find out for myself. Of course, I’ll be spilling out all the deets with you so you’d know what to expect and then it won’t be so much of a risky buy for you. Let’s check out Etude House’s Precious Mineral BB Cream Cover & Bright Fit with SPF 30.

Feature | Fashionology Boutique and Cafe

Fashionology

Concept boutiques and cafes are becoming quite popular these days. They’re so rampant that you shouldn’t be surprised if the house next door turned into one. In fact, one just opened nearby. One that’s called FASHIONOLOGY.

And being the frickin millennial that I am, I was practically compelled to check it out and so I went.

THE DEETS :

Basically, Fashionology is a boutique and café, where you can shop, dine and play. (I literally just copied the words off their banner… WTF.)

There are currently 2 Fashionology branches : 1 in Imus and another in Molino. The one i’m featuring here is the bigger branch, the one in Molino which is a few back flips away from Jollibee Molino and Southeast Asian Medical Center. Stores open from 10am to 10pm.

Do You Wanna Build A Snowman?

I think I’ve heard enough knocking in this lifetime. I swear, if I hear another knock, I’m gonna go bat-shit crazy.

My daughter Zoey recently discovered the Disney movie Frozen and wouldn’t stop OBSESSING about it. I tell you, she’s gone insane over the stuff. She’s only 2 years old, so she’s obviously years late from when the movie exploded to become such a big hit, but in my household, the phenomenon has just started and it’s driving me crazy just the same.

It’s Frozen when she wakes up and Frozen before we sleep. She’ll randomly break out in a song at any time of the day. My phone is filled with videos of her singing songs from Frozen that she likes to watch over and over.
