Review: Shiseido Perfect UV Protector SPF 50 WetForce

Another long weekend is coming up, and for those of you who are planning to go to the beach or hike up a mountain or basically do any outdoors-y stuff and get exposed to the sun a lot, here's a hardcore sunscreen I recommend.

You, probably: Are we done talking about Buqo YA now? I hope we're done.
Me: NOPE.
You, probably: Ughhh.
LOL sorry guys, but the effect of last Saturday's launch hasn't worn off yet. If anything, it reverberates even more now that the initial comments from people who were the first ones t…

It was a beautiful day for dreams to come true.

SM Ladies' Night (oh what a night!)

Who would say no to shopping? Who would say no to shopping at 50% off? Keep calm? Who could keep calm at deals and discounts as huge as these?
NOT ME, FOR SURE.

At 6PM to 9PM only for five Wednesdays, SM Woman and GTW by SM are treating us women by offering EVERYTHING on the racks at 50% off! Note…

Today my emotions ranged from being spontaneously happy to sad to WTF? to excited to furious to elated to every little feeling in between - not necessarily in that order. Unlike Ron Weasley, I do not have the emotional range of a mere teaspoon. It was a wild ride, and it's only Monday.

Krissy Makes

#KrissyfiedMakes is the hashtag I use on Instagram for my watercolor paintings and various DIY projects. And because I'm all for saying your dreams out loud, here it is: someday I'd like to put up a stationery brand with this name and sell products that feature my art. I just need to improv…
