#BelieveInMagique and Strike a Pose

A couple of weeks ago I shared my review of the new Mat Magique by L'Oreal, a powder compact that promises 12-hour matte and shine-free face, flawless and full coverage, and superior UV protection at only P499 a pop.


I also shared a peek at a fun shoot we had care of the L'Oreal team where…

Currently pretending I'm back at the beach.

I AM ALIVE!
I was privileged to spend the last three day and two nights in Balesin Island, one of the most beautiful places I will probably get to visit in this lifetime, because of my job. Basically, they paid me to be there. Please remind me of this post every time I feel like complaining about …

I AM GOING CRAZY.

I need to be at the Alphaland Hangar before 5:30 AM tomorrow for my three-day work trip to Balesin but I haven't packed yet. Good luck to me, as Monday rush hour guarantees I won't reach home earlier than 8 PM tonight. Plus, I still need to coordinate with a few dozen peo…

Let there be light.

I have a Catholic upbringing. I was born to a Catholic family and attended a Catholic school from elementary to high school. I was an active member of the Lector-Commentator Society and Legion of Mary and regularly led the Morning Prayer and daily Rosary during the flag ceremony. We recited prayer…

Tedding-out

Lily: Don't Ted-out about it.
Ted: Did you just use my name as a verb?
Barney: Oh, yeah, we do that when you're not around. "Ted-out": to over think. See also "Ted-up". "Ted-up": to over think with disastrous consequences. For example, "Billy Tedded-up when …

I also had my room redone when we had some house repairs done last week, and most of my long holiday break was spent sorting through my mountain of stuff, trying to decide which ones to keep and which ones to toss or give away. Aside from unearthing things I thought I'd lost (yearbook receipt,…

Review: L'Oreal Mat Magique

At the beginning of the year, I wished for magical and incredible things to happen. The new Mat Magique All-in-One Matte Transforming Powder by L'Oreal Paris is proof that my wish may have been granted.

Am I exaggerating? Maybe. But seriously, if you've grown tired of dewy looks and/ or yo…

Welcome to the carnival!

We are currently enjoying special non-working holidays in honor of the Papal visit to the Philippines and while I didn't personally join the throngs of people who went to get even just a glimpse of him, our TV has been glued to the live coverage since he arrived yesterday. May he have a peacef…

Currently Vol. 2

I woke up yesterday determined to shake myself away from lethargy. Organizing my room never fails to clear my head and thus give way to new ideas, but it had to be postponed as our house started undergoing through repairs.

On the bright side, I created art!


I tried to distract myself from the cons…

Unsettling solitude

It's the first weekend since the work-year commenced, and I spent it doing nothing. I made progress with my 2015 reading challenge, took a nap, changed my blog's color scheme (did you like it?), watched a few episodes of Modern Family, and did nothing. I wanted to paint but my right hand h…

Don't be a stranger.

I don't have a best girl friend. There, I said it. I don't have that one specific person whose ears I can talk off just talking about the most mundane things in the world, nor hold regular sleepovers with, nor someone expected to automatically accompany me anywhere (like to go shopping, wat…
