One Night Only: Beyond the Barricade, A Mega Musicals Concert

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

If you're into musicals, then this night is for you!

When I got the invitation, it states that "it is the CHANEL of its time". A perfume loaded with history, I can't help but get curious about this brand.  

SM Beauty: All Eyes On You!

It's super true how eye makeup makes all the difference. A nice cat's eye, or the perfectly blended eye shadow gives one a whole new look! 

This October, SM Beauty highlights your makeup game with ALL EYES ON YOU campaign. 

Learned more about this earlier during their event at the SM Makati.

I'm a big pop music and happenings fan! Haha, I love them all... Katy vs Taylor? My guilty pleasure. VMAs Nicki Minaj - Miley Cyrus fiasco? Bought them all! Haha. So when I learned that Sun Cellular will bring us to the Carly Rae Jepsen concert, how can I say no? I bought her whole E.MO.TION album on iTunes right away, and listened to her other hits via Spinnr's Manila Concert section!

Starmobile KNIGHT Elite

Gone are the blogging days when I had to go out lugging 2-3 gadgets at a time. These days, I realized, a good camera phone is already worthy of taking pictures for my online accounts. As long as the quality is good, it doesn't matter if I took it with an inexpensive gadget, or without any special 50mm lens. 

Anyway, I kept on discovering new phones that have quality camera features. Nakakaimpress! One of them was during Starmobile's launch... So happy to attend it with my girls:

Nothing But H2O: Endless Summer Passport

Sunday, September 27, 2015

Have you been to Nothing But H2O stores lately? I am from Alabang, but I think it was my first time in the Nothing But H20 ATC branch last week, and I enjoyed my visit! It's as if it's still summer in the country, and you're preparing for an adventure!

Me-Time At Cedar Salon

There will be days, right? When you just want to dedicate a few hours all to yourself. It was one of those days when I went to Cedar Salon in San Juan, around 2 or so weeks ago. I had no plans of changing my look (although this is also very much welcome in Cedar), I just want plain, good, pampering service.

UNIQLO expands its HEATTECH line

I've been following Uniqlo's HEATTECH line for years. I love its breathable and light cloth, most especially when traveling. Recently, Uniqlo expended their HEATTECH line from conventional innerwear to pants, knitwear, and fleece. The warming and heat retention function of the line is now made even better with camellia oil.

Who's ready to travel for a colder December? :)

Wingstop UAAP Sports Snack Bundles

Saturday, September 26, 2015

A few nights ago, I dreamed I was already super magaling na, and I was in Araneta cheering Go Uste with my whole alma mater. Complete with actions! I am not sure if it's already obvious, but I was a BIG UST Growling Tigers fan! I haven't watched a game for a loooong looong time na, but I miss the thrill and the vibe of catching a UAAP game live. 

COVERGIRL Colorlicious

I am so so happy! I finally opened my laptop after more than a week of hibernation. I can finally stare in this lighted screen without feeling stabs and jabs of pain in my head. I feel that things are finally getting back to normal, or even better! :)

Anyway, a week or so ago, I went to Bizu Greenbelt for Covergirl's Be Colorlicious event. I had around a month to hold a giveaway for a reader who can join me in this makeup shopping spree. I think I chose Bea because she commented on wearing Covergirl while joining my giveaway. Nadala ako, hehe!

Monochrome Days

Totally unrelated to the photos above, I am so happy that I can finally (mobile) blog now, while stalking all your Facebook, Twitter and Instagram posts (hehe). I've been sick and bed ridden since last week, wala akong kagana-gana mag Internet as it just gives me severe headaches.

After 2 nights of high fever last Wednesday and Thursday, my parents brought me to the hospital realizing this is not normal fever. My blood test showed I had low platelet count, and my urine test concluded I have UTI. I rest and rest, drank my medicines, drank my Gatorade, and ate what little food I can take in and properly ingest. I just slept a lot, actually. And think a lot! In the middle of the night, will wake up because nasusuka ako. The parentals had been very very patient.

Come Sunday, we went to another hospital for several tests, and was given the news that I was negative to dengue and just experiencing viral infections and typhoid. Mom is so happy re the dengue news. I also felt relieved. It's super hard to get sick when you're self-employed because one, all my plans and schedules had to be bumped off to latter dates. And two, I don't have a health card sooo... Magastos talaga! 

Anyway, so I am now regaining my strength back and can go online for hours. I still have no panlasa, and my energy lasts for about 5 minutes only, then I feel weak again and have to go back to bed. So no going out muna. :( But I know that things are better than last week. With all that hours, day and night, given for me to think, I chose to be positive about all these things and what lies ahead.

Health is wealth guys!

Taiwan Excellence Made to Enjoy Singing Contest

Friday, September 18, 2015

I miss Taiwan! I'd say it is one of my top 3 travel destinations as of the moment, and a country that I have no second thoughts of going back to. I love everything about it.

I miss Ximending, where everything's young and alive. This is the area of the hotel my Ate and I stayed in during our 4 nights in Taiwan.

Life in LIFE Yoga BGC

Friday, September 11, 2015

If I have a choice, I will go for yoga as my main fitness activity forever. But due to time constraints, irregular schedule, and my current galaxy far far away address, I'll be happy to attend at least one class a week. :p

Anyway, for those who live or work at the Fort, here's a new yoga school that's worth visiting.

Days 3-5 of Basic Makeup Class with SOFA x MAC

Wednesday, September 09, 2015

Sayang I wasn't able to post this na pala before... But here are the last few sessions I had with MAC Cosmetics x SOFA's Basic Makeup Workshop. It's a certificate course, and I really learned a lot on basic makeup and makeup application techniques. I still apply everything I learn from the class, with the most important lesson: Never be afraid to just do it. Try lang ng try, so what if it's not the best! :) Practice still makes everything "perfect".

Read Day1-2 post HERE.
