The Zen Institute: The True Concept of a Medical Spa


What do you see when the word SPA comes to mind? 

To me the first thing that comes to mind if total relaxation and the luxury to throw away one's care to the world - for the moment of course.

2014 Skincare Routine


Hey guys! Sorry I haven't blogged in a while. Been enjoying my vacay...well sort of. 

I am officially you could say unemployed.  

It sucks I know but there are actually a lot of things I am planning up so I decided to jump off the workforce for a while. I will go back full time for sure but for now I will be focusing my time on my blog, youtube channel and with my family. 

nuff' chit chat lets get on with today's post shall we? 

A lot of people actually comment a lot on my skin since it looks perfect daw - I partly believe it yet I disagree in a way. I believe because I maintain a good skin care regimen, but disagree because there is no such thing as a perfect skin.

Are You Ready? Be Prepared for the Unexpected



According to statistics from the Department of Health (DOH), non-communicable diseases (NCDs) or lifestyle diseases such as heart attack or heart failure, stroke, and cancer are the top 3 leading causes of death among Filipinos. It is reported that more than 276 Filipinos die of heart diseases on a daily basis, 9 are diagnosed with cancer every hour, and 142 Filipinos die from it every day.

Did you guys also know that at least one Filipino suffers from stroke every 9 minutes? For those that survived, they have a 75% chance of becoming permanently disabled.

Numbers don’t lie. 

Marco Polo: An Untold Lovestory - A Review



Last Friday, I was invited to watch a musical. 

I was really interested in watching musicals because I was part of one a long time ago. I didn't really do anything but help out with production and make up then. I liked the feeling of seeing a piece of art come to life when you are part of its process. 

Last Friday I came and watched Marco Polo: An Untold Love Story.

A Note of Decorum at Events



I have started attending events about two or three years ago. Mind you my first event was actually a beauty party. And from then on I attended blogger events for the fun of it. 

You can say I am a 'veteran' per say but not really because of my weekday work schedule. But I have still been asked about certain things like what do you do on events and how do you act in it?

There are different kinds of events and there is no specific guideline because you just have to go with the flow. But its still best to have some key pointers in attending events - just in case.

First Impressions: Wet n Wild Longlasting lipstick in Just Peachy


I don't have a lot of peach lipsticks - matte peach lipsticks to be exact so I was really happy when I got this Wet n Wild Matte Lipstick in Just Peachy last December. 

I have been reading/watching/hearing a lot of raves about this wet n wild long lasting lipstick. So I was excited to try it.


I have tried this product out but only for a limited time. I will be using this product more for sure so I could make a thorough review towards it. 


The lipstick is really matte and super pigmented. I kinda looked pale when I first applied it to my lips but if I apply some blush it actually compliments my skin more. Its hard to be very fair skinned I tell you! 

And if you can see on my swatch since it is very matte it has also highlighted the crevices of my wrist haha! but if you apply it to the lips make sure to exfoliate your lips and apply some lip balm first so you wont have dry looking lips with these. 

That's it for today's first impressions though. 

I will do a review on this soon I promise so make sure to check back ok? 

Much Love!

My First Nyx Product!


I remembered a couple of years back I was drooling over (not literally) NYX products since they were not available here. I was thankful they are available now since they opened a store here in Manila! 

But alas I haven't bought one when they first opened because 1.) I was busy at work and its store is out of my way to work. 2.) My weekends would only be spent by either attending events away from the said store or just staying at home. 3.) I don't really like buying stuff online because I am quite a skeptic before.

But thankfully I received some cool NYX products recently so I was really giddy with joy about it :D 

I know I am such a kid but who cares we are all kids at heart when we get a product that we want to try - don't deny!


My very first NYX product is actually a lip gloss! I got RLG 31 Red Tint


Its a 2.5ml tube of sheer goodness.The color looks really pigmented on the tube so I was hoping it would still be pigmented when applied to the lips.


And it is! It has a Pinkish red hue that has subtle shimmers. If you apply it alone I think about two layers would be enough if you want something really pigmented. 

I will be using this on a tutorial really soon. I know I have been saying that but I still have a lot of videos to edit so please be patient :) pretty please :) 

Will be doing a thorough review about this soon make sure to check back! 

Much Love!

First Impressions/ Product Feature: Rimmel London's Cool Touch Shadow


Hey hey~ 

I hate back logs so I will try to do my best to update BOTH my blogs. Its a tough job but I like doing it. 

So for today's product feature I will be telling you what I think about Rimmel's Cool Touch Shadow. 

I actually got this from Joyce Sola's Birthday loot bag and I was really surprised how many stuff it has. I will be featuring them here soon so make sure to check back ok? 

Basically the job of this product is to be an eye shadow or a base for your make up look - simple as that. 

I got the shade 084 cool babe. The shade is a bronze shade that would be perfect if you want to achieve that sun kissed greek goddess make up. 


The product is in liquid form so make sure to shake the product prior to using it. The packaging is a squeeze tube which was good since you can control how much product to dispense. If you want to know only about half a pea size is enough for both my lids when I use them as base. But you can use more to your liking. 

I can't say much about this product since I've only used it about a couple of times. Its really nice to use as a base color to your make up look but make sure to apply just the right amount so it will just act as a base to amplify the look. 

I will do a thorough review on this soon so make sure to check back ok? 

What Rimmel product do you want me to try next? I would love to know your suggestions! 

Much Love!

Photoescape Reviews: Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Lip Gloss in Yearning


Do you have that lip product that makes you feel sexy? For me there is - Victoria's Secret Lip gloss in Yearning. I don't know why but I really like this lip gloss and truth be told I am not a lip gloss girl. 

I actually got this when Dang of Yellow Apple store on Instagram sent me a loot bag of goodies. I was immediately drawn in this product mainly because of the color.


The shade that I got is yearning. You can check the website if they still have this shade. I believe there is already a victoria secret outlet here in the Philippines but I'm not sure if they have this product line. 


The product has a doe applicator which is good but I would suggest not sharing this lip product with any one.  

If you girls know, Victoria's Secret mostly exude the glamorous bombshell image. There is just something about looking like a Victoria Secrets angel that is so alluring for both men and women. Speaking of which most of their products have a shimmer in it. This lip gloss has a nudish pink color with shimmers. 

At first, I was not really into applying this lip gloss. I was more into admiring its shade but after so much thinking I finally did it. Don't the shimmers in the tube fool you because they may seem intimidating at first, they give a subtle look into the lips. 


Overall this lip gloss is a definite must try if you want to achieve that Victoria's Secret Angel look. 

In terms of the price, I am not sure with this since I don't know if the VS outlet here in the Philippines carry this line but if it is I hope its not too expensive. 

Do you like any VS cosmetics? 

Make sure to leave a comment below of your favorite VS product. 

Much Love!

Photoescape Reviews: Glory of New York Lip Liner in Maple


Happy Monday!

So...How was your Lunar New Year? Did you have lots of fun at Binondo? I did! I will show you that on my travel blog and video blog! But for now let's go to our product review for today. 

Glory of New York's Lip liner! 

If you want your lipstick to last longer, I suggest to apply a lip liner similar to the shade of your lipstick - this comes especially handy when you are wearing red lipstick since the lip liner will prevent the lipstick to bleed and smear all over your face.


I got this during Joyce Sola of CandyLoveArt's Birthday celebration. I was really happy since I've been planning to buy a nude lip liner since most of my lip liners are reds or pinks. 

I wasn't able to research much about this lip liner, but solely based on my experience I noticed that this lip liner is really creamy but still great to spread all over the lips with a brush. 


The pigmentation of the product is really superb since you can use a little as you want then just spread it with a lip brush. 

I've used this a couple of times on my clients and they are impressed with this product that they asked me where I bought it. It was hard to tell them that I got for free but I just gave them the link of Glory of New York Facebook page. 

The only think though that irks me with this product is its kind of short for me. Although its creamy and a little goes a long way - since I have chubby hands, it seems quite small for me. Thankfully this is a pencil because I kept on dropping this - sign of aging maybe? haha! 

Overall I love this product. I think the price is still worth it. I know I got it for free but checking their price list and color selections, it actually seems pretty cheap for it. 

Make sure to visit Glory of New York Philippines' Facebook page to check out their other products! 

Much Love!
