I am now vlogging and I love it!


Hello ladies! For the past weeks I have been shooting myself some videos.

YES.

I have been doing vlog or video blogs for like a week or so. Quite honestly I find it so hard to vlog especially in public for some reason. People would just look at you and stare as if you have a huge sign in your forehead saying I'M WEIRD.

Product Highlight: Nivea Angel Star Soft Body Souffle


Hello ladies!

On today's post I will be reviewing this item which have actually been in my vanity for so long I forgot I had this LOL

I've started using this because I've ran out of my body creams and lotions. Thankfully I will just finish my mom's stash since she is not using that much. Like seriously is it true when you become a mom you forget to take care of your precious skin anymore? I always tell my mom that even if she is not going out she still needs to moisturize her skin but she doesn't listen to me tsk tsk.

Kpop Friday: Be the next Kpop Superstar with Kpop Star Hunt!




Hello ladies! It's Friday again and here's the latest scoop from the Kpop world. Okay I sounded like a news reporter there LOL. 

Okay going back, on today's post I won't be talking about any Kpop star but a soon to be one. It might be you!

TvN, Asia's leading Korean Entertainment Channel launches its second season of K-Pop Star Hunt! Are you ready to be the next Kpop Superstar?  This can be your first step to stardom. I remember I watched the first season and never missed an episode! :) With its initial success of attracting more than 50 million viewers across Asia the show is set to make its comeback for a second season. 

No Mirror Make up Challenge




How is your Friday doing so far? For me it would be a good one because I will be having a good weekend ahead! :D I cannot wait for Saturday to come. But for now I will be blogging about this cool challenge I tried. 

I've seen Say, Emafe, Judy and Kath do this so I was really interested to try it as well.

This challenge is called the no mirror make up challenge. The only rule is you don't look in the mirror. 

O.M.G. 

I know it sounds weird since using the mirror is one thing you really need to have when applying. Personally, I think this challenge is really interesting because it tests how much you know your face from every nook and cranny of it...well in a way it is. 

Have fun watching this! I really had fun doing it. 

I think I passed this challenge. What do you think? 




Hang on! Saturday is just a few hours away! :) 

Much Love!

I'm Pissed off and I know it



This will be a personal post since I have been feeling really crappy lately. If you find this post offensive in some way please do tell me. All comments - may it be bad or good will be highly appreciated.

I am not a girly girl if you meet me in person. I am more of a girl that has spunk. I am nice to the point that I would just look the other way if you offend me. I don't like confrontation EVER.

Make up 101: Concealers



Hello ladies! its another sunny Wednesday! :) 

Let's talk about concealers today on make up 101.

Next to the foundation, concealers is one item some girls cannot live without (don't even deny it). Concealers are used to hide imperfections such as dark circles, acne marks and other small blemishes in the face.

Diet Diary: Moderation is key.


Hello ladies!

How is your Tuesday so far? Good? bad? so-so?

Zumba has been one of the things that keeps me at my feet at night since I do my zumba routine at night when I get home from work. Zumba is exciting since there is no limitations and you can go at your own pace. 

I'm planning on buying some small gym equipment like weights for my work out but alas the budget is not allowing me to T_T 

But you can actually just use anything to be your weights when you are working out.

I remembered my friend would stuff her pockets with small stuff like loose change or poker chips so that she carries a bit of weight. For me I usually hold two 1.5L water bottles filled with water when I exercise. 

Since I started this journey, I have learned a lot of things. One of them is to don't hinder yourself. If you like to eat, then eat - in moderation.

I've also learned that moderation is key. I eat a lot but I eat in moderation. I eat every 3 to 4 hours apart so that my metabolism is able to keep up with myself.

Here are the regulars in my food intake:

1. oatmeal
2. lettuce
3. fruits
4. fish
5. carrots

I only have five since they can substitute as snack, lunch or dinner for me.

I haven't weighed in so I don't think there is a big change but I will try to weigh myself by the end of the week. 

Have a safe week!

Much Love!

Product Review: Axe Anarchy Body Spray for Him and Her


Hey ladies! 

I'm back with a new review and it is for the Axe Anarchy scents. If you girls remember I did a series of blog posts about the Axe Anarchy a month ago you can check them here. And since I got these I was able to try the one for the girls. 

I gave the guys scent to my brother since he loves Axe so much. I actually grew up with my brother using almost all the axe scents that I can remember. There was actually a time that when a guy passes by and he has axe on I would have my game face on. For some reason it just had that effect on me.

FOTD: White washed pictures and Red Lips



 Happy Monday! 

I am so glad its not raining any more! I like the rain sometime but when its too much I get so gloomy..I know I'm weird LOL. And because it is sunny I've decided to wear red lipstick today to celebrate it! :D 

If you have seen my previous FOTDs you would probably know that I don't wear a lot of red lipstick because the color overwhelms me. 

NO hair ties or hair pins messy bun tutorial


Hello ladies! 

Its Monday again and I couldn't be happier even though its still raining but I know that after the rain there will be sunshine so don't be gloomy like the weather! :D 

On today's post I will be sharing to you one of the hairstyle that I really like to do since: 

1. It is super easy to do.
2. You don't have to use hair ties or hair pins for this! 


I usually lose my hair ties and most of my hair pins just slip out of my hair which really got me frustrated with my hair. 

Hard to believe huh? I'll show you more below.

Product Review: Human Nature's All Natural Spray Sanitizer


I usually get OC when I think I need to. Don't get me wrong, getting dirty sometimes is okay but if you are applying make up and your hands are not that clean you better think twice. So because of that I found this product really useful since I don't really like the smell of alcohol and also it dries my hands.

For today's review product, it would be for Human Nature's All Natural Spray Sanitizer.

Follow The Latest Trends on TV with FOLLOW


Metro Manila's savvy ladies will have a new television show to look forward to with 2nd Avenue's FOLLOW.

Last Thursday I was able to attend the media launch for 2nd Avenue's new show for the savvy chicks out there for FOLLOW. 

FOLLOW is a lifestyle program tailored to appeal Manila's A-class and its aspirants. The show chronicles the people that affects our lifestyle choices to where to eat, what to wear, where to shop - in other words the people we FOLLOW. This show will air on 2nd Avenue starting July 30 2012 at 6pm. It will also have regular airings from Mondays to Fridays at 6pm, 8pm, 8am, and 2pm. 

On today's society, we are mostly online to know what is the latest and also what is trending. Whether it comes to clothes, make up, music, fashion or food - the internet helps us know what, where and who to follow. So I think the show FOLLOW gives us more because they will give us the latest information even if we are not online. 

FOLLOW is created by PR afficionado Philip Abadicio and produced by StyleRPA. RPA stands for 'Real, Personal & All-that Style'. "The show chronicles the people that influences of our lifestyle choices - Fashion, food, arts, music, design, gadgets - basically the people we FOLLOW"

The host of FOLLOW is Mandy dela Rama-Santos. She is a style sophisticate, entrepreneur, mother and wife. She is actually very pretty and elegant and I think she would be a great host because she is elegant, friendly and believable.

I can't wait to see FOLLOW on 2nd Avenue. Will definitely watch it for sure :)

Much love!

Movie Night: Beastly



Hello ladies! Last Sunday while TV surfing I was able to see this movie. I think this was just released last year or so and I was surprised with this film because it reminded me so much of Beauty and the Beast. The only thing is the setting of the film was in New York.

According to what I remembered, Kyle Kingson who is an arrogant and vain son of a wealthy news anchor thinks too much of himself and also he bullies other. One day he was 'cursed' into a bald, tattooed scarred shell the only thing that can break it if he finds someone that would love him more what the eyes can see.

Diet Diary: Now Keepin' a Food Diary!



Hello Ladies! 

How was your weekend? I'm still a bit saddened by the demise of the Comedy King but I know he is now in heaven with our Creator making him laugh as we speak. Heaven will be a better place for him. 

Going back on today's post. I haven't been posting Diet Diaries right? I'm so sorry about that since I've been really busy and also I've stopped doing some of my regular routine so I think I need to get back on track again.

Scent of the moment: Ever Bilena's Garden Flowers Cologne in Apple Blossom



Hello ladies!

Since I ran out of my BBW cologne I used my Axe Anarchy body spray but I will do another post regarding that.


So going back, I like my scents depending on the weather and my mood. But generally I like my scents either sweet, musky, clean, and fresh. Its hard to define since I'm like a firecracker when it comes to these things. I usually go with my gut when getting perfumes and colognes. If the scent makes me smile and think of something good I will definitely buy it. Don't tell me you don't do that. :)

I am so happy! :)


Hey Ladies! 

I was supposed to blog about this last weekend but because I had a jam packed weekend with my friend I forgot about it :( But any who I would just like to share to you all a moment I will never forget. 

Last June 29, it was any other Friday. I did not have any clue about what is going to happen. 

I WAS GIVEN THE BEST TEACHER AWARD! 

Every quarter of the year, our account would look into our classes and check who is fit to be best teachers in our account. I was actually not counting to be even part of it since although I do my job well I think I still need to perfect my skills in teaching. 

As part of that I got a certificate of appreciation and also 1000PHP GC from SM! 

I already spent the GC for groceries since it was my treat to my mom. 

I am not expecting it since I know there are other teachers deserving of the award but thank you so much for this. Quite honestly, even without this award I would always get compliments from my student's parents because I teach their children even if their children are naughty and some of them don't listen to me. Its hard to teach English over the phone since you won't be able to supervise them if they are really reading the book. 

But I trust my students a lot since majority of them do get some progress and also I make our lesson fun if they do their lesson. 

I'm just soooooo happy! 

Have a great day ahead! 

Much Love!

Make up 101: Make Up Base or Color Correctors




Hello ladies! Happy Wednesday! I can't believe its already Wednesday!
For today's post it will be about Make up Bases or commonly called as color correctors.

Make up Bases or color correctors are basically primers that we use before we apply foundation. Its main function if to even out the skin, correct pigmentation in the face, minimizes our pores and also makes our make up last longer. 

Thinking of purchasing a new camera


Camera I choose you! XD


For the past few months I have been using the nintendo 3ds to shoot my videos and also pictures for my blog. 

Quite honestly, the nintendo 3DS is a great gadget since it has music, games and also an internal and external camera and wifi which I can use anytime. The only problem is this is not good enough to suffice some things I need to do with my blog/vlog and tutorials. 

So that made me decide to hunt for a new camera to buy. If you are wondering what happened to my previous Canon powershot camera, for some reason it doesn't respond anymore. What I mean by that is whenever I use it the camera just dies after a few shots. I've been using brand new rechargeable batteries so I think the problem is really with the camera itself. 

I will be featuring at least three brands and models so let me know if you have any recommendations below ok?

Lets start!

so let's get started ^^.

First Impressions: 88 Colors Palette


Hey everyone! For today I will be showing you my first impression for the 88 colors palette I bought. 

I bought this from Cuties and Charms for only 800 pesos which is a little cheaper than most palettes I've seen. 

Within first seeing this product I know that this will be a good addition to my collection for sure. As because it contains most colors I would like to use on my FOTD and also my upcoming gigs ^_^

The palette is a mix of colors so this is for those who would like experiment with colors. There are some neutral shades in the palette but you would really get tempted in trying out the colors as well. 


With flash

 I've used them a couple of times so here are my observations. 

Since this palette comes with sponge tip applicators, I suggest you throw those away. I had a rough time applying the product in my lids using those. They also are not as soft as other sponge tip applicators I've used in the past.

without flash
 Another thing is most colors are chalky buts majority of the colors are pigmented. 

I was a bit disappointed with some of the eye shadows since most of them have shimmer but they don't show up in my face... what was that?!?!



But over all this is a great palette that I think I will use more since most of the colors I like aren't chalky and they are pigmented so I'll settle with that. 

 Do you have any palette recommendations for me? 

I am still searching for good palette so any of your suggestions will be highly appreciated. Please do comment below if you have any suggestions k?

Keep safe everyone! 

Much Love! 

-- Alice

Product Review: Avon Clearskin Blemish Clearing Peel Off Mask


Hello ladies!I hope you are having a wonderful Monday so far. As for me, its doing well since I am now settling to my new station. You will never see the door of the CR on my next FOTD posts! LOL.

Okay going back to today's post. As of you may now know I still have been battling break outs but thankfully they just occur before and during my T.O.M. but besides from that I haven't been getting break outs. And since I want to break away from those nasty break outs I have been using this item from Avon which is the Avon Clear Skin Blemish Clearing Peel Off Mask. I still haven't gotten over my mask phase in which I have been using this every time I have a break out.


June 2012 Haul


Hello girls! July has officially arrived and I will be showing you what I've bought for the past month. I wasn't supposed to buy anything but I think I need to buy these stuff since I will be using them for my tutorials, FOTD and also my brother's upcoming wedding. 

His wedding will be this October and I am very happy that my future sister in law asked me if I can just do the make up of some of the bridesmaids and also my mom's make up. So some of the stuff you will see here will be part of my future posts for sure! :D

Product Review: Missha Creamy Latte Green Tea Cleansing Foam


Hello ladies! 

For today's review I will be reviewing my current cleanser which is from Missha. I think this is the very first Korean cosmetic product that I got so I'm quite nervous and excited since I don't know what will this product do to my skin. This was given to me by our Korean manager when they visited our office a couple of months ago. I was supposed to get the chocolate cleanser but I changed it with my office mate since this the chocolate cleanser is for dry skin.
