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

Skincare | Hey Sugar! Waxing Salon

I’ve been a fan of underarm waxing for some time now. Since my pregnancy, my underarms became unsettlingly dark! (…TMI) I know they say it goes away on its own, but c’mon, I wasn’t going to risk it. So what I did was to avoid the things that were supposedly causing the problem and voila! my underarms turned out to be in much better condition than before I even got pregnant, which I’m so happy about, BTW. They’re still not good enough to be cast in a deo commercial, but I’m not complaining either!

Here are the 3 things I did to lighten my armpits:

  1. I stopped using deodorant altogether and switched to the miracle stone, our good ol’ Tawas 😉
  2. I used whitening cream (the one that Mosbeau has which retails for a little under P1,000)
  3. And lastly, I stopped shaving my armpits and started getting it waxed instead.

I’ve tried a few waxing salons in the past and I want to share with you my experiences so you’d know what to expect IF and WHEN you do decide to get WAXED. (But seriously, do it already!)

Today, i’m going to tell you how they do it at :
