Travel Lust List #1: France


I would like to think that my previous trip to United Kingdom is the one responsible for igniting my inner wander lust. Before, travelling for me is about shopping and scoring the best deals while learning about the place just comes second. After returning from London, I feel like there's something inside me that craves to see more of the world. Travelling became something about learning a specific country's culture, traditions, and immersing myself to their rich histories.

Pony Effect Deep And Pure Lip Tint Review


The moment I first saw the whole collection of the Pony Effect Deep And Pure Lip Tint, I knew right then and there that I had to get my hands on at least one of them.

Hey, dolls! Today, I am back with another unboxing and capsule review of my beloved Korean beauty and skincare products. I am very excited to tell everyone about this brand, Rucy's Vanity, that offers affordable Korean cosmetics and skincare products.

Get Personal With Me: Of Leaving My First Job, Realizations, and Freelancing


Hello, dolls! How are you doing? Tonight, I decided to write about my feelings I kept bottled up for quite a while now. Anyway, if you know me personally, you might already know that I have resigned from my first job... I left my position as a staff nurse one week ago, and to be honest, it felt very liberating. The first few weeks of my work was indeed fulfilling and satisfying; I've gotten to see the realities of being a nurse here in the Philippines and witness the beauty of saving lives. I felt genuinely happy when I first heard the most heartfelt thank you from a patient and his relatives, and yes, that's what kept me going for the following months.

How To Effectively Get Rid Of Acne Marks (Korean Skin Care Routine)


Treating acne, as well as preventing their development can get tricky! At my age, I still suffer from acne’s especially during THAT time of the month. However, with proper skin care and religiously sticking to it, the scar appears less obvious than before. As we all have different skin types, choosing the best skin care product is important—that is to prevent further breakouts and keep your skin healthy looking.

And boy, was it destiny that they are having a free shipping promo nationwide?

Laneige Two Tone Tint Lip Bar Review


Once I've tried the Two Tone Lip Bar from Laneige, I promised myself to get another tube on my next payday from their another collection which is the Two Tone Lip Tint Bar. I've always been eyeing the shade #8 Cherry Milk which is one of Lee Sung Kyung's favorites and since I'm a big fan of hers, I immediately pre-ordered the said shade. LOL.

First Look: Althea Petal Velvet Powder


Searching for that perfect loose powder to keep your make-up matte and looking fresh all day can be quite a struggle, and trying different brands can be a bit tiring. That's why, I am very excited and pleased to announce Althea Korea's first ever exclusive product, the Petal Velvet Powder. With Althea Korea being my go-to Korean beauty and skin care web commerce platform, I was extra happy when I've learned that they are starting their very own product line, starting from this translucent/loose powder.
