Okay so before the year ends I would just like to add one more to my favorite people in the Youtube and also blogosphere, There's actually a lot more of them but I'll add them up one by one starting next year (wag atat bakla! LOL)

Before I begin this review I would just like to inform the readers that I am not sponsored to do this review and everything that I say in this blog is my personal opinion.
Do you have one product that you absolutely hold on to when you have a bad hair day? I do! I usually tie my hair up when I have a bad hair day or I am just really lazy to style it that day haha!
One thing I hold on to when I do have a bad hair day is Vitress hair solutions since it conditions my hair and keeps my hair straight since I have wavy hair.
Vitress hair solution actually comes in 3 variants and I chose instant relax since I would like my wavy hair to tame itself once in a while.
This product keeps your hair smooth and manageable with just one pump! :D One thing though that I don't like about it is that if you use too much it would make your hair look limp and also oily.
Lets get on with the review shall we?
What I like about the product:
Available on all stores
Cheap - One 30ml costs around 70php
easy to use
has light scent
What I don't like about the product:
If you use too much your hair might get really oily.
I love it! I actually keep it in my kit all the time.
Would I repurchase?
Of course! I really really like this product
Who would I recommend this product?
Girls who would like to keep their wavy hair managed.

Just a notice to all that will read this review: Every skin has its own different composition. This soap may or may not work for me, but that doesn't mean that it won't work for you. In other words this review is just to give you my opinion about the product. All opinions expressed by me are true and was not influenced in any way by the company being mentioned in this review. I am also not sponsored to do this review.
It has been my job to keep my skin acne-free or at least keep it away. In order for me to do that is to try new products and see if they work. I was fortunate enough to get my hands with this product from Miss Kat Soap from the Noel Bazaar a couple of weeks ago. Click here if you want to check out my experience ^^,

Okay this is the very first brush review that I will do since I have been using this brush for the longest time and I must say it never failed me.
It is the N32 Angled Blush Brush from Marionnaud!!

I have not been blogging for the past week and I am terribly sorry. It makes me think that I neglected my readers/friends that I did not even told you girls what happened.
Basically I have been swamped with work this past few days since its also the Christmas season which ordered me to wake up earlier than my usual time so I can get to work before 2pm. There were also other problems that happened that I won't discuss at the moment.
But nonetheless I miss you all!!!
I promised to do a blog giveaway soon but I will have to let it pass because of the Christmas season. Because for one, my money is slowly depleting because I have to buy gifts and also attend some parties. This season really tears my wallet and also makes me heavier than ever! haha! But I love how this season brings our family closer than ever.
I will blog more since the year is coming to an end. And I want to start my year with new blog posts. So expect back logs and also tons of reviews before this year ends. I'll definitely be posting more than 2 blog posts if possible so I can make up for lost time.

Sorry I have not been updating my blog for like 2 days since I have been terribly busy with work and of course our upcoming Christmas party this Saturday. Its so stressful thinking what to wear and also what look to do on that day. But any who it’s a process that I have delicately tackling since I am not the most fashionable one haha! But enough about that lets talk about dry skin care and also some tips in at least alleviating the dryness of our skin.
As promised this is the post for good products to use when you have dry skin.

I have eaten at Chic-boy's before but this was just the first time I saw this "scandal" I am supposed to post this on my food blog, but I think this would be a better place to post it since my other blog is for me to give you my recommendations.
Okay the brown thing that you see on the top picture is a caterpillar. YES I am dead serious. As I said before, I have eaten at chic-boy's Tomas Morato a couple of times yet I haven't experienced this. I can't really commend their staff, no bad blood here if you ask me. But I think they should hire better staffs according to the person who posted this.
Okay enough of what I think of it, lets talk about this first. Basically this is a post made in Facebook that asks the company that owns Chic-boy to take response on this issue. One customer has just tried to eat a freakin' caterpillar. Its too gross to even think about it. I'll put in this blog post the letter of that customer.

Yesterday I was able to attend the World Bazaar at the world trade center and I just have to tell you that it was awesome! :D
It was really crowded though but I had fun because I was with my friend Michelle since she wanted to do some Christmas shopping. By all honestly I stuck by my rule that if I find anything interesting I would definitely buy it! I did buy some items but I'll tell you more about it at the latter part of this blog post.

The right side is without make up while the left side is with make up.
As you can see make up can really change what you look like. My face seemed brighter with make up and more even toned. I also defined my brows more then put a purple and pink eyeshadow then tight lined my eyes and applied mascara. I also added blush and lipstick for a flush of color.
A lot of my office mates actually was amazed with me wearing make up. They suggested I should wear make up every day. I would like to but I don't think the weather would allow haha!
I like wearing make up but not on an everyday basis. It kinda hassles me if I have too do the full on make up.
I know its weird to hear that from a beauty blogger but its true! I would definitely like it more if I can sport a natural look because its much better that way.
Wow I have finished doing 30 days worth of posts! This is really an accomplishment if you ask me ^^,
I would really encourage other beauty bloggers to do this. It really is fun because you will be able to share a part of you that other people don't know about you.
Well then I'll have to go now,
I'll talk to you in my next post!

I like wearing eyeliner but I only wear eyeliner when I really need to look great.
In terms of liquid eyeliner, I could say I like it but not really a big fan of using it everyday. For me wearing liquid eyeliner would be okay when it is really needed.
In terms of favorite liquid eyeliner I actually don't have one.
Sad to admit I really opt for pencil eyeliner.

My favorite make up remover is the (2) Phase Make up remover from Sophie Paris.
I like this remover mainly because it doesn't make my face uberly oily and it removes stubborn eyeliner without stinging my eyes. I actually made a review about this, you can check it here to tell you more about it.
I am actually in my 3rd bottle! ^^,

I really like the Clean and Clear oil control powder since it reduces oil and shine on my face. I usually use this when I am in a hurry. The only thing that I don't like about this is the puff. For some reason after like 1 week the puff that comes with this is not good to use. I end up using my make up brush just to touch up.
I have actually bought one but I gave it to my cousin since she needs it too ^^,
Even though the powder that I use to touch up is from Ever Bilena, I prefer the clean and clear one since its not that heavy.

I can't believe it that I have only 3 posts to go before I finish this series.
So on with our Day 26: Do I wear make up everyday?

This Mo Twister and Rhian Ramos issue had gone haywire since Friday, December 2 2011.
It all started when a youtuber by the name of PrettyJenny55 posted this video on Youtube on December 1.
The video basically says that Mo was in Singapore when the video was shot and he was talking to himself because he could not fathom the thought of having his child aborted. And during this time it was said that Rhian was his rumored girlfriend at the time.

Sorry for the tiny picture of my favorite eyeliner.
This product is actually from Sophie Paris under their Koshize line. This is an eye brow pencil and eyeliner. I really like this because I don't have to use a sharpener for this one. Another thing I like about this is it is really small and you can bring it any where.
Most of my office mate have this in their kikay kits too and we absolutely adore it ^^,
It is kinda pricey for its price if you ask me. This retails at 150 pesos. But beside from that I really like this.
30 day make up challenge day 24: Which do you like: cream, matte, powder, sheer, or shimmer eye shadows?
Out of all the eye shadow types I think I like matte powder the most since I am used to it. I have tried shimmery which is hard to manage since I have semi oily lids. And also with matte eye shadows there is more impact in the color unlike in the shimmery it would usually be more of the glitters that would be seen.
As you can see in the picture above majority of the colors in the palette is the most use ones are the matte colors. I think the only shimmery eye shadow I use there is the white one for highlighting.
Today had been I think one of the sluggish days of my life. If you compare me to my cats you might say I have fully adapted to their habit of sleeping for almost 20 hours everyday haha!
I have totally been sleeping/napping this whole day. I just woke up and watched television OR played with cats and dogs. I guess this is happening to me because 1. its been raining all day and 2. I am PMS-ing. Feeling sluggish before I get or during my period is pretty normal for me, I just hate that it had to happen on a rainy day because I can't jog or walk on a rainy day.
As far as I remember I have not posted day 24 and 25 of my make up challenge. Really sorry girls I have been feeling as if my body is giving up on me this December, I guess I have to suit up because even if I have a curvy body that doesn't mean I'm healthy through and through.
Will definitely post those two later.

I have been fascinated with BB creams for the longest time because it makes me wonder how good they really are.
I actually have 2 favorite eyeshadow palettes but I don't have a blush palette haha!
I fell in love first with my jordache eyeshadow palette then with my Ever Bilena Palette. The reason why I like these two palettes is because both palettes can be used for day or night. I'll do a different post about these two palettes since it would make me do swatches and all ^0^
I have been thinking of buying an eyeshadow palette maybe next year but we'll see if I'm gonna buy one. ^^,
As much as I love blushes I have actually not owned a blush palette since I usually stick to only one shade at a time.
That's it for my post today.
Tell me what you think on the comment box below.

Ola! I've just started this habit of taking note what products I have finished.
As of November, I have finished 4 products which are
Queen Helene Oatmeal and Honey Facial Scrub
For Your Daily Touch Lavender Clay Mask
L'oreal Paris Total Repair 5 shampoo
Human Heart Nature Feminine wash
I'm still thinking if I am going to re-purchase some of them or just try out new products in the market.
I will let you know about my decision real soon ^^,
I uberly love the toner from Clean and Clear. It doesn't dry me out as much as the Eskinol one. Although almost every one I know raves the Eskinol astringent, I am not really feeling it.
The only bad thing is its been a year since I last used a clean and clear toner because almost every store I go to has no clean and clear toner...WHAT IZ WRONG WITH THESE STORES! haha!
But even so I really love clean and clear. To my manila-based readers if you have seen a bottle of this toner please tell me where they are available I would really really appreciate it!
This is my brother. And today is his birthday yipee! haha!
This is my eldest brother and his name is Alan. This is my brother who loves me soooo much! I can't tell you how sweet and lovable this guy is! And he is the dad of my niece and my nephew that I mention a lot in this blog. See where they get the cuteness? haha!
We actually act more like friends than brother and sister which is kinda rare nowadays :D
I actually told him my gift for him is milk for the kids. But of course I was just kidding, I will just buy him something special next week ^^,
Every time his birthday comes I actually don't have any gift for him and I feel really bad so I'll make it up to him this year. I'll buy him something for his work ^^,

I actually don't have an exact store I go to buy my make up. I do have someone I order my make up from especially for my Sophie Paris products.
I mostly drop by Watsons in mega mall when I have the time. I also drop by Saizen, Daiso, The American store and lots more just to check out their items. ^^.
Speaking of which I really need to remind myself of dropping by saizen to buy some items there haha!
How about you? Where do you buy you make up?
Let me know on the comment box and I'll talk to you soon!

Its not what you are thinking LOL.
I have tried the Urban Decay Primer Potion before but I can say that its not my favorite since I have just used it only once.
I seriously like the Ever Bilena Advanced concealer as my eye shadow primer though although it is a concealer.
I know its confusing but if you like you can try it out for yourself.
Just apply the concealer in your lids then top it off with some powder then voila! ^^,
That is basically it! ^^,
I'm really sorry this is a very short post for you girls don't worry I'll make it a little longer next time.
( The picture of the left is when I have break outs while the right side is my break out free side.)
I was not blessed with perfect skin although a lot of people would say I do have perfect skin. Its all hard work I tell you.

Ever Bilena Advanced concealer in Light Vanilla.
This is actually my favorite believe it or not. In terms of concealing major problems it would actually take me more product, but I mainly use this for my dark circles and also my lids as a primer. The consistency is not too thick nor too thin, it doesn't cake too which is good ^^,
Speaking of concealers I think I have to buy a new one since I'm running low on this one. ^^,
I will be doing this first impressions blog for Miss Kat soap since it says that it will make your skin much better, I haven't used this product on my self but I have given one to be tested out.

I don't really go out much so I don't have a specific night time look.
I would usually opt for just going on a darker hue from my daytime look and re-curl my lashes then tight line. For lips it would be a red or a pale mauvey color.
Its kinda dorky to see but yes I don't go out at night. I'd rather stay at home, read a book or a blog maybe watch a movie or shoot a video then go to sleep.
|(L-R) russian red, fantastic red, red wine, red pepper, cotton peach,|
velvet nude, mango peach, summer pink, caramel sugar, ice pink
Ola! So if you watch my youtube videos you would probably seen these lippies and I've made a short blog post about some of it shades but here is the complete set of shades of the J'adore lipstick.

I also copy some make up looks, I actually made one on my youtube account which is the love you like a love song look.
Thursday, November 24, 2011
If you have been reading my blog for quite some time now, you would probably know what are my staples in getting a flush of color right? I'd rather go lipstick or blush or maybe both.
On most days I go with blush since its much easier to pull off when I am just running some errands.
Currently I am finishing the LA colors blush I have in pink blush. It is like a baby pink blush. I can compare it to Angelica of NARS and Pinkish Blush of careline.
The thing though that I hate about this blush is that its doesn't really show in my face so I have to apply more and its kinda chalky in the long run, but over all it justifies its job when I need a flush of color in my cheeks.
That's it for today's challenge.
Do you like to wear blush too? what's your favorite color?
Tell me on the comment box below ^^,
Ola! I am really sorry for the late post! It totally slipped out of my mind last night LOL
But any who this is my day 14 of the make up challenge!
In terms of girls I have been following...and even stalking (LOL) I can name you a ton! but here are some of the most common that I watch on youtube ^^, I've also made a post for some of them just click their names and it will link you to that page ^^.
I haven't made one for Janah because I keep putting it off... really sorry! haha but will make one next time I promise.
I like watching these gurus since most of them feature local products like Janah, Say, Noe, and Emafe. And they also feature looks that are easy to follow like those of Michelle Phan.
I also like other youtubers and I especially like pinay make up gurus since they really make looks that are wearable for the Philippine weather. As you all may know I live in the Philippines which is a very tropical country ^^,
That's it for my late post.
I swear I will keep this locked in my head so I won't miss a post again! haha!
