hello!
Alliterations are amusing. Chandeliers, cheesecakes, and charm bracelets make me happy. My blog aims to spread pink, positive thoughts and pretty little things. Send me some love and kisses via mail@krissyfied.com.

Krissyfied Shops: January 2017

“Dark and difficult times lie ahead. Soon we must all face the choice between what is right and what is easy.”
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire There's a Harry Potter quote applicable for every situation. These are scary and turbulent times, my friends, and even though it may be difficult …

SM North Chinese New Year

It is said that for one to be continuously good in his or her craft, he or she must put in the work and the hours it entails. It’s a never-ending quest for development, thus training for it shouldn’t stop.

Without meaning to, I failed to pick up a paintbrush and paint the entire year of 2016 because of reasons. I was too busy with work, with my social life, with a host of different things that I missed tapping into my #KrissyfiedMakes persona and see where my palette of paints could take me.

It was because of this that I slightly panicked when we were asked to pick up our paintbrush and scroll and try our hands on Chinese painting by no less than the Chan Lim Family of Artists themselves at the launch event of their exhibit at the SM North EDSA The Block Atrium.


The Chan Lim Family of Artists has been engaged in the arts for close to half a century. In the present there are three generations of Chan Lim artists who use a wide variety of media, styles, and techniques to incorporate Western into Eastern art. The family continues to get involved in the arts by actively developing and promoting Chinese brush painting in the Philippines and abroad, and it was really an honor to have been invited to participate in this class and learn from them first-hand.

Most nights I don't know anymore.

Exactly one year ago, I experienced one of the best nights of my life.
My dream of seeing and hearing Nate Ruess perform live came true.

I remember how ecstatic I felt when my friend Niche broke the good news to me. I just came back from a work trip in Boracay then and all my exhaustion went away. …

Of dreams, love, and La La Land

I watched La La Land with my la la love today and I may or I may have not shed a week's worth of tears inside the cinema while the movie's playing, outside the cinema immediately after the movie, and in Serenitea a solid six hours after we saw the movie.
My expectations were already a bit h…

I've told this story countless times to everyone who would care to listen and I've already shared this several times here on this blog, but allow me to tell you once again how I first started blogging legitimately.
Circa 2008. I was working at a BPO and with all the extra time I had I deci…

Review: Maybelline Vivid Matte Lipsticks Part Two

When we welcomed the new year, I promised myself and the world wide web that I won't purchase a new lipstick until I'm done reviewing every single tube I already have. Yes, a girl can never have too many lipsticks, but this girl does not have a big enough storage room for all of them. If y…

How I made my own cushion compact

I ran out of my Maybelline Super BB Cushion and I wanted to repurchase because I really love how easy it is to use and how it gives me a dewy glow --- but then I did the next best thing (or probably the better thing?): I made my own!

The It's My Cushion Case set in Althea Korea caught my fancy…

Hello, 2017!

New calendar, new beginnings, and a blank slate to fill with more stories and memories. Happy New Year, boys and girls! How did you welcome 2017? I hope it was with a lot of merry-making, joyous hearts, and full bellies.

One of my favorite things about welcoming a new year is jazzing up my chosen p…
