Michelle Phan's Midnight Luster look for New Year's


 Hello lovelies! I hope you are having a great New Year ahead of you wherever you are! 

I was actually thinking of just doing any look I can come up with for the New Years but I saw Michelle Phan's and I was like I want that look. Call me a copy cat but I love this look, its sexy, simple and nice to do. And instead of saying its my own I will just post this as a response to her's. Ang arte! haha!

Vampy Skyfall Bond Girl Inspired Look


 Hello lovelies! I know its New Years and I am blogging! ha! Don't worry since I have handled my time well and since I have lots of back logs to get back to I will start with the make up looks I promised. I won't be able to do the one for Selena Gomez's and also Carley Rae Jepsen's look since I don't want to reshoot them any more. I accidentally deleted the pre-recorded looks by mistake since I was sleep.

Kpop Friday: Christmas and New Year in Korea




Hello lovelies!

I am so sorry that this is a late post for Kpop Friday! ChaChi my computer has been going crazy on me again in which the only thing to fix it is to buy a new capacitor for it soon so I can be back to blogging at home. 

How was your holidays so far? Have you ate a lot from the parties? My goodness I think I have packed some pounds because of the holidays. but this is not going to be a diet diary but a Kpop Friday post! haha!

I have been working as an Online English Teacher for two years now and whenever the Christmas time comes the most asked question we have is: How are you going to spend your Christmas? - quite cliche but its true. 

Koreans - unlike any other east asian countries do celebrate Christmas as a national holiday since 30% of its population is practicing Christianity. Although Buddhist is the main religion, there are some people that practice western Christmas traditions. 

There is not much difference between our way to how Koreans spend their Christmas, the only difference is Christmas in Korea is more of a religious celebration rather than an all out gift fest for some. I remember one time I asked my student what she got for Christmas and all she said was I don't know teacher.

I was stunned when she said that because I grew up knowing that Christmas won't be the same without gifts, may it be small or big there should be one for your loved ones and yourself as well. Not to be on the materialistic side but that is what some have grown up to right?


In Korea, Christmas is also a time for couples. I have heard my teenage students telling me that they will be going to an amusement park with his or her partner and just enjoy their time there, amusement park also hold special events to singles so they can find a partner for Christmas. Christmas also is a time to party with your friends.  Most of my students that are in University told me they commonly go clubbing with their friends and get wastes. Yes. Get wasted. I just shake my head because I have done that and I can't believe they do that on Christmas day.

There are some that attend Christmas Mass with their families and eat out or go on camp trips with their family.

Of course since we are talking about Christmas, there would be a Christmas feast. But unlike the typical western Christmas feast that has turkey and other delectable treats, The Korean Christmas feast serves typical Korean dishes.

Now on to New Year since New Year is just a day or two away. Koreans actually don't make a big fuss about this Holiday since they go by the Chinese or Lunar Calendar. But since there are a lot of Christians and foreigners that live in Korea, there are some that hold New Year parties and also there is a big fireworks display. They do put more effort when it is Seolal or the Lunar New Year.

Over All Christmas and New Years in Korea is just like any other day for some Koreans since they are not Christians so don't expect all Koreans know western Christmas practices.

How is you holiday?  I hope you are having a splendid one!


Much Love!

Back Logs, Food Blog, and a Whole Lot of Drama





Hey Girls! I'm really sorry I have been MIA-ing this couple of days with in terms of vLogging, blogging and updating my SNS (Social Networking Sites) It's just that I've been very busy with a lot of things in the personal aspects of my life. 

This blog is also a part of my personal life since I share to you some things about what has been happening to me but I seriously don't want to jinx up my dating life. 

Yes. You read that right, I am back to dating! 

I actually haven't stopped dating but I just didn't put that as a priority in my life since family and friends, work, this blog and my youtube channel comes as to my top priorities. I just got back dating and I have been dating lately but it didn't work out so I moved on to the next one. 

Ang landi lang! haha! 

But quite honestly, I am like that when I'm seeing someone. You will know if they are serious or not just on the first date even if both of you have the jitters. I put my best foot forward and make the experience as memorable as possible. If it doesn't work out at least we have good memories to remember right?

I won't go into much details with my dating life since I haven't really done much. I will also be revamping my Food and travel blog www.photoescapetravels.blogspot.com which is why I'm lacking on some posts here. I am still conceptualizing if I should put a banner on it..and what kind should I use? Designing a layout is harder when you haven't done it for so long.

Also expect a lot of back log posts since I will be busy for a couple of days. I will still do some weekly posts like vLog round up if ever I posted some vlogs last week, make up 101, diet diaries and of couse Kpop Friday. Please do understand that I am juggling more that one blog and other SNS accounts so I will be busy and will be late on some occasions but still expect great articles soon!

Also! I am still coming up with prizes for my blog Anniversary/youtube birthday/ My birthday giveaway! If there are any interested sponsors please do email me at alicemate@gmail.com

Hope you girls have a safe and wonderful New Year ahead!


Much Love!

My Birthday Wishlist







Hello ladies! I am making another post for today since I will be doing a week long posts of product reviews so make sure to watch out for it! 

Okay going back... I know you are wondering why I put Birthday wishlist rather than a Christmas one.. it is mainly because my birthday falls on January which means most people would be too stingy to give me another gift since they have already given me a Christmas gift..

Are You Ready for your turning point this December 21?


NOTE: I actually forgot the pictures of this post at home but I will be updating this post later so I hope you understand this post won't have pictures yet ^_^ Y

One of the most anticipated date is December 21, 2012 why? perhaps because its been said that this date is the date given by the Mayan calendar which is said to be end of the world.

Over the past several years, we have been given a lot of information about when the world is going to end. From documentaries, to news articles, and even radio reports. Seriously I don't even know which ones are true to the made up ones!

Like and Share? Can you do it for Real this Christmas?



Seems like we see this a lot on Facebook and other social networking sites. But here is a question you can ask for yourself - What do I really LIKE and what would I be willing to SHARE?

Like basically is something that you want for yourself. Ang selfish naman! lol but really, that's the reality. Something we like is something we want for ourselves, you can say you like to have a new smartphone or a new car.



Personally, I would like to have a smartphone, Preferably a Samsung Galaxy S2 phone but if that's exceeding your budget then I can go for a Myphone A898 phone instead. I would love either of those for the sheer fact that I can take pictures, videos and contact my friends thru SNS sites just with a few taps.

I would also like to have at least 2 new pairs of heels from Parisian or Ferretti. I have seen their collection and ay que mio! the shoes are to die for! I am now starting to be more fashion savvy. The outfit kaya na eh.. shoes lang yung problem. TT.TT

Lastly, I would like to have a great feast for my family. Kala nyo puro saken lang yung likes no? WIT! haha! I would really like to just have dinner with my family to a great restaurant. We haven't done that in a while kaya nakakamiss!

For sharing, its not really a necessity that you give out money since sharing, like gifts, its more on the thought that counts.

Time. I would like to share my time with anyone, especially animals that needed a lot of attention and love. I would love to spend time with dogs from the pound and let them experience the love and caring so they would forget how life was hard for them.

Talent. Besides from blogging I'm also a singer. I would love to share my talent and love for music to children. Music actually became my friend during the times I needed someone to console me. Music is a universal key for us to channel out our emotions. And I'd love to share my talent with everyone with workshops or one on one training sessions. Malay mo yung mamentor ko yung susunod na singing super star na pala. 

Laughter. If you see or met me the first time, people might think that I am a snob. But in reality I am not a snob or high maintenance, I am a very low maintenance kind of girl. I'm also known by some to be really funny. I would love to share my antics with anyone and make them laugh. I am very comical and I am very animated kakanuod ko kasi ng anime pati mannerism nila nakuha ko na! LOL

And why am I writing about this? This is actually for the Filipinos Bloggers Hub first Christmas Party that will be held at cocoon boutique hotel. I hope I will be able to join them later but I can't because I will be in tagaytay later today.

I hope you guys have fun!


Much Love!
