Diet Diary: Coolin' down for the summer


Happy Monday Ladies! 

Summer is one season that I am really excited since I can go to the beach and I have the perfect excuse to wear shorts again haha! 

The heat has been unbearable and I think everyone can agree to that especially if you are here in the Philippines. Cooling off this summer won't have to be a struggle if you are losing weight since there is a lot of things we can do to still shed the pounds while cooling off.

Updates! Updates! + Hater Alert!


Ola ladies! I haven't blogged for a couple of days because:

1. I am currently suffering from sun burn from my recent outing with my office mates.

2. I have a hater that I tracked down. 

Lez gow to number 1 I am so ashamed/glad/sad/embarrassed/happy (yes all at the same time) because after nearly 3 years I got myself sun burned AGAIN. Last time was 3 years ago when me and my guy friends went to Baler for a weekend of surfing. I got really burned back then and I promised myself it won't happen again, but alas it did happen again. 

I was glad because I was able to reduce my fairness. Being fair skinned has its fair share of good and bad perks. The down side though is I still stuck out as a soar thumb because of the redness. Luckily I was able to buy aloe vera gel to soothe my skin whenever I am feeling the urge to scratch my skin. 

Lets go to the second one which is my hater. For a couple of days there is this youtube who will not be named anymore that kept saying bad stuff about my videos. From saying I need to dress up and put make up to basically saying that I need to stop making videos because they are pathetic. Well if they are so darn pathetic why did you watch all of my 202 videos and commented on each one of them? 

I know there are different strategies you can do to stop those haters. I have done a vlog and a blog post on it some months ago but this person has to stop. So what I did is I tracked her location and sad to say she is not from the Philippines, my guy friend asked me if I would like him to hack her accounts but I declined the offer because knowing what she looks like is fair enough.

So to you who hate my videos, I know what you look like and I know all your passwords even if you change them I would still know them. And yes as pathetic as my videos can be THANK YOU FOR WATCHING EACH AND EVERYONE OF THEM. 

I have blocked that person from my youtube channel since she is a negative energy that I don't want to be associated with anymore. 

But above anything else I still feel glad because even if haters come my way I just fight them back or simply laugh at them because they are wasting their time. 

How do you deal with haters? And have you had a bad case of sun burn? 

Let me know on the comment box below and I'll talk to you soon! 

Much Love!

Movie Night: Country Strong + Akunin



A couple of weeks ago I was able to watch these movies because I was pretty bored with my Sunday night. 

One of the things that I do to lessen the boredom is write or watch somethings. I was clearly not in the mood to write that Sunday night since tomorrow I will have to go to work and resume with my day job. Not that I'm complaining :D 

I was able to see two films that really gave me a glimpse of the life of a star and also a villain. These films are not your typical movies so expect to do a little research after watching these films :)

Diet Diary: Blending my veggies


Happy Monday! 

I have been on a diet for a while now and sometimes when I am very tired of eating veggies I actually resort myself into blending them. 

Yes. I am serious. 

People may find it weird but I think its a better way for me to get to have veggies into my system. I did not really grew up eating lots of veggies, I like fruits more but I am getting the hang of eating vegetables.

Most of the vegetables that I blend is lettuces, cucumbers and tomatoes. I mix them up with some honey or fruits so they won't smell or taste like grass. I also add some flax seeds for additional fiber.

My brother mistakenly drank one of these and it was hilarious since he is not used to it. He actually told me it tasted like grass. He thought it was wheat grass Haha! 

I have weighed myself the other day and I saw that I lost around 1 lbs which is good. Walking my dog really helped me lose more weight since its a bit of a struggle to make Georgia go somewhere. Try to ask a 3 year old Lab Ret to do laps with you. I think I should watch dog whisperer more LOL.

I have been doing some Zumba now which is great since it has also helped me more in my weight loss. So far so good I am seeing some results since some of my pants have loosened and I need to use a belt to keep it from falling down.

Last weekend, I went to Loreland with my friends and I think I did a full body work out just walking through the resort. Its an 8 hectare full of people, pools, and a scenic over looking view of Manila. 
That's it for today's diet diary. Do you have any weird diet tricks that you do? 

Let me know on my comment box below and I'll talk to you soon! 

Much Love!

How to make the most of your concealers




I have been using the Ever Bilena Advanced concealer for a while now and I've noticed that I am running low on it already. I was initially going to buy a new one but I saw that there is still some product in the tube so I looked for a way to get those.

Product Review: Maybelline bb cream



I have been using this BB cream for a month now and these are just some of the things I have noticed and experienced on it.

I can actually say that I am a total beginner with BB creams and this is the first BB cream that I've tried. I've already read and seen reviews about this product before and its actually a mix of rants and raves.

Simple Sundays with my Family


Usually on Sundays me and my family would just be at home since that is the last day we can rest longer. But last Sunday was different since we visited my dad and also celebrated Palm Sunday. 


 Here's my cute nephew doing his gyaru faces. I don't know where he learned those but I can definitely say I didn't teach him that! haha! 

We first visited my dad since it was his birthday last March 28. Usually we visit him twice a month but because we are preparing for my brother's wedding, there were times that we forgot and I am really sorry for that Papa. 

Quick FOTD and OOTD




 FOTD: 
Maybelline BB cream
Ever Bilena cosmetic collection (eye shadows)
LA Blush in pink blush
Ever Bilena Matte Lipstick in Pink Flame

I'm actually going for a very spring / summer look. 

OOTD: 
Shirt and Pants (Thrift store)
Shoes: Natasha
Accessories: Necklace given by Viva Andrada during the F*Art event ^_^

I went for an all black ensemble because I want people to notice my make up (CHOZ LANG! LOL)

After visiting Papa, we were supposed to go to St. Pio in Eastwood but the parking was que terrible that we decided to head out to Marikina Riverbanks since we were feeling a little starved. 

There was also a chapel in Riverbanks but unfortunately we were late for the mass :( oh well. 

We just went to Chic Boy and ate some food. Surprisingly, their food is not that bad. I ordered Liempo since I have been craving for one for weeks now.

like nephew like tito!


My liempo

Thankfully I was able to resist going for 5 servings of rice with this. I only had 3 servings. Not bad right? But I still need to burn them up though... which reminds me I need to post my diet diary ASAP ^_^

After eating at Chic Boy's we were supposed to go to the nearest church so we will still be able to hear mass. Luckily we were able to hear mass ^^, 

But while we were waiting for my brother to get the car, I saw this Magic Faucet and it was so cool. And I actually didn't let the chance get away to take some pictures of my niece and nephew. These two actually like the camera a lot so it wasn't hard to ask them to pose - the only problem is that they don't stay in that pose long enough for me to take pictures so some of their pictures are blurred but that's okay.







And now I leave you with a picture of my cute nephew modelling H2T (Head 2 Toe )without him knowing it!  haha!


Much Love!

March Favorites and Empties


Its April and I can't believe it! ^_^

How was your March ladies? Was it good? great? or superb? by the way congratulations to the graduates of 2012 and welcome to the real world! ^0^

I haven't really went through a lot of items last March so I only have 6 items. Sorry I was only able to take a picture of 4 of my favorites since my favorite shampoo had already run out  and I forgot to take a picture on my fanny serrano lash curler :(

Lez begin!

1. Japanese Shampoo. 

I wasn't able to google the name of it but its like pantene in Japan according to my friend. I like the scent of this shampoo and also it makes my hair super shiny and soft and cleans my scalp well ^^, 

2. Bath and Body Works' body cream in cool citrus and basil. 

I've actually been using this every single day as a lotion and it just makes me feel so refreshed afterwards. 

3. Bath and Body works' body splash in pink grapefruit. 

I have been using this product since last year and I can say its one of those scents that just reminds me of summer that is why I have been using it over and over since. I'm actually running low on it so maybe it be part of my April empties ^_^

4. LA Colors blush in pink blush. 

I've actually been using one blush at a time since I have tons of it and this is the one that I am currently finishing up. I really like this color because its just very light that it doesn't make my cheeks looked like they've been slapped so many times.

5. Maybelline BB cream

I have a review of this product coming up so be sure to check it out ^^, 

I like this product because its not that shimmery unlike my myra e moisturizer. I'll tell you more on my review why I like this product.

6. Fanny Serrano Lash Curler.

I really like this because this makes me look awake more since I haven't been sleeping early because of work :D

So that's it for today's favorites. Let's go for my April Empties. 


I haven't finished a lot of items this much since I am doing a rotation on to the products that I use. Probably I will have a lot of April Empties. But for now I just finished my Eskinol astringent. I have actually been using this to tone my skin after I wash it. I stings a little but it does its job well. ^_^

Here's the video version!



Much Love!

BB cream vs Tinted moisturizers

If you have seen me in person I don't really wear a lot of make up not unless I need to, but for everyday wear I have resorted myself in applying at least one of the two products above.

This season's must have: Laneige Sun Block High Lasting SPF 50 PA+++


Being in the sun this summer can take a toll on your skin so better apply more sun block so you can have more fun in the sun! 

Laneige had released their sunblock for the summer season which has SPF 50 which is great if you are going out in the sun all day. 

Be sure to check out Laneige in Shangri-La Mall, TriNoma, SM Mall of Asia, Robinsons Place Manila and soon to open in Robinson's Galleria. 

Have a Fun Summer with Laneige! 

Much Love!

Note: I am not affiliated with Laneige nor was I asked or paid to do this blog post ^_^ I simply love sharing this to all the lovely ladies who like Korean make up. ^_^

A New Kind of Facial Experience with Svelte Welness Center and Casmara


I am the kind of girl that rarely go on facials. And when I say rarely its like only when there is a major event coming like a wedding or something.

I mostly do Do-It-Yourself facials at home since I don't really have a lot of time to go to a spa or facial center.
