Baler comes from the word bali--meaning "a place to come back to".

What do you do when you're either stuck in traffic, waiting for someone, or at the airport?
I often just surf the internet, unconsciously absorbing other people's lives even when I don't need to! Anyway, with that I decided to download apps that will steer me away from Social Networking Sites from time to time. I love my Pinterest because of the inspiring DIYs, OOTDs, and vegetarian recipes. I also enjoy my Buqo app for my cheaper and portable monthly magazine subscriptions.
Now I discovered a new mobile game that will entertain me during those down times: Trip ni Belle by Belle Daza!

Did you know that 8 out of 10 women consistently engage in underarm hair removal to prepare for the season? They may not know that plucking, shaving and waxing actually damage their underarm skin, leading to irritation and bumpiness! Pag dating ng summer, it's all "damage control"! :p
More and more, women need a deodorant that delivers skin caring benefits and helps them get beautiful underarms. To learn more, I went to the Dove Deo event yesterday in Toby's Estate, Whitespace.
I've said this before and I'll say it again... People (though not all) get lonely during Christmas season because they feel that they lack something. I think that has been my case, feeling "alone and lonely", only to snap back and realize that this special day isn't all about me! I remind myself that it's about making people I love happy. :)
The Body Shop highlights my Christmas feels with their holiday campaign event for the bloggers last Thursday at the SM Megamall.

I LOVE Jessy Mendiola! She's actually one of the few celebs that I am not ashamed to profess my love (love you Jessy!), hehe. She is candid, transparent, and real... When she's hurt or bullied online or brokenhearted, everyone knows and I think it's doubly hard for her as a public figure. But I admire how she dealt with these things. Plus, Jessy is also really talented and ang ganda nya!
I think that's why Avon chose her to be the endorser for their new fragrance line Sheer Passion:
I love love California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) because they have the trio perfected: great food + great service + great ambiance combination. Aside from these, I appreciate their wide menu, catering even vegetarians like me! It's one of those few restaurants where I am at ease, and have a lot of good options to choose from!
Last Tuesday, I went to their new menu launch at Shangri-La Mall East Wing. I was curious on what else they can add to their perfect lineup!

Blogging this before leaving the house because today (and the coming days!) are very very exciting. I am on my toes now as I juggle school, the blog (and events), Bloggers United, and my new baby with @sarahtirona - Beach Born Sea Salt Hair Spray!
Speaking of BU, we've recently partnered with the new mobile app for selling and buying items from your favorite Instagram sellers: SHOPEE!

If for anything, regardless of slower metabolism (hehe), I will never want to "go back in time" because of what "getting older" entailed me. With adulthood, I became more unforgiving. I used to be too shy or too caught up with what people think of me. But now, more confident, I know my worth and why I do things: Not to please others, but to be happy!
And this is exactly what Ibiza-born plimsoll footwear brand Flossy promotes to the youth:

Hotel Rembrandt is inspired by, if it's not yet obvious, Dutch master artist Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn. He was known not for technical brilliance, but for his new kind of insight, making what seem ordinary more interesting!
Like its namesake, Hotel Rembrandt offers satisfying luxury and convenience in the middle of the busy and residential area of Tomas Morato, Quezon City. Just like all of ArtStream Hospitality Management Group, Inc. (AHMGI) hotels and resorts, Hotel Rembrandt gives you access to all the happening places and events in the area, and great facilities and food in the hotel!
Last night, I attended the new menu launch of Hotel Rembrandt-QC, Le Monet Hotel-Baguio, and Hotel Luna-Vigan. It was held at the ballroom:

I was talking with my sisters earlier about the Ayala Malls Christmas event, while munching on a box of Custaroons. We realized that we're lucky we're not super "emo" during this love-hate season. We thought that maybe it's because we're used to having each other during this time of the year? No matter what, we have family.
Anyway, I am glad that the Ayala Malls is here to remind us of beloved family traditions and other important things that make Christmas magical and meaningful - more than the lights, fancy decors, and rush shopping.
The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf® releases their 2016 The Giving Journal, a journal designed to inspire each individual to pursue their passions and find meaning and fulfillment in everyday moments, while at the same time providing them with the opportunities to give back by helping others!
You'll love the new planners' macaron-ish colors!
There are several moments when my hair just won’t cooperate, and here are the top 3 situations:
1) As a blogger, I have to go to several events in a week day. There are even hectic days when I have to cover 3-5 brand launch! Because I am always on-the-go, and I can't always go to a salon, I often end up with dull and frizzy hair. :p

Life is fast and short, before we knew it, it's already November! I still have a bit of anxiety every time I remember my half-hearted promise to spend the Holidays with my family in Maryland every year... But oh well, financial and time constraints is telling me that there's always a next time.
Anyway, here are my October favorites! Plans may not be fulfilled on my own time, but life has it's own way of making me appreciate what's here and now. :)
1) Lifehouse Concert was a dream come true!
Was supposed to watch Gen Ad, but received last minute Patron tickets! Special thanks to @nicherautomatic and SpinnrPH! Read more on this HERE.

Good news, it's finally open in the south at the Alabang Town Center!

When I first went to Disneyland, it was waaay past my childhood already. The experience was super memorable, nonetheless. I was with my long-time friends from high school, people that most probably I'll go with to the theme park if we had the chance and money when we were still kids. But anyway, one is never too old for Disney and Disneyland!

When I was invited to the launch of Snowcaps' new endorser, I went for it because I love and have been using their soap for months already (blogged about this HERE). I wasn't expecting that the celebrity will be today's hottest star Alden Richards!
Your beauty is worth the wait! Sa tamang panahon? Hehe!

Gone are the days when "family days" were spent an hour or so away from home.
We used to go to Makati pa every Saturday or Sunday for mom to do her groceries, us to run some errands, and even just to shop or buy things. Now that gigantic malls have already sprouted here in the south, weekends are more comfortable and less stressful. Imagine my delight when I saw my favorite shops opening on this side of the Metro!
Yesterday, SM Southmall was packed with fashion lovers and shoppers as they opened the first H&M in the south.
