Life lately (Before 2016 ends)

Wednesday, December 28, 2016

Before the 2016 ends, I just wanted to update you guys about my life lately. I know I've been such a crappy blogger (as always), and as much as I wanted to blog more frequently, hence, I got myself a new laptop for my blog.. life and work always gets in the way. Not complaining tho because I still love my life and the people in it. 2016 was definitely a bit of whatever but I always find happiness in the mundane and really strive myself to appreciate life as it is, and swallowing being an adult.

Basically my life.. no matter how crazy things could get, or how hard and challenging life may be, I wouoldn't trade this for anything else 'cause I love the people in it...

Speaking though, my relationship with King has been a bit of a struggle, and honestly we argue most of the time because we haven't been apart for this long (1 year and couting). He can't visit me until next year so we are both crazy missing each other. We are planning to meet in Bali though, if he can't really squeeze in a week-long holiday here in MNL because of his school and work. Plus he just bought a new car in Sydney, a BMW, he's super worried about leaving it (lol, more than not seeing me) but just to be fair, he only bought it for us, *fingers-crossed I'm gunna be re-locating there as well, soon.

But in the meantime, my 2 crazy travel buddies Cha and Lois plus my nephew Luca and a bit of travelling lately are the things that keeps me sane thesedays. Oh btw, I also managed to cut my own fringe for a fresh new look this 2017. hihi

Hmmm, what else? I guess you guys should expect more videos and blogs from me soon. This 2017, I promise to really focus on my Youtube Channel. I've always wanted to do this eversince and I hope I'd have enough time to finally make this project my number 1 priority for 2017. Wish me luck!! x


Tita Con'z Freshly Baked Banana Cakes

Happy holidaaze guys!! I hope y'all had a wonderful Christmas with family and loved ones. :)

I know I have been MIA for quite sometime now-- again, and again, life has been a bit crazy lately. But anyways, in this post I just wanted to share with you this super yummy, affordable, and home made banana cakes that you could share and enjoy with your family this holiday season.

I was lucky enough to try these because a friend of mine actually owns this business and I kid you not, these are one of the best (if not "THE BEST") banana cakes that I have ever tried in my entire life! Srsly, banana cakes are like my comfort food eversince.

REVIEW: Affordable Mascara from Essence Cosmetics (Php100 only)

Saturday, October 29, 2016

We all have our own favorites when it comes to Mascara. Some people are so keen on trying makeup brands that gets a lot of fuss, jumping on the bandwagon even if it would cost them an arm and a leg; and while I somehow admittedly-- find myself in that situation once in awhile, I still can't help but look for a cheaper alternative. And when I say cheap, I meant affordable but amazing!

Bioré review

Every makeup obsessed junkie like me, or girls in general--are pretty much "meticulous" when it comes to their favorite makeup remover wipes. It is darn crucial for us. As much as we love putting on some makeup, we surely wanna get rid of them at the end of the day. Emiright?

Me, in particular, has my own favorite set of trusty 'ole brands, and one of them is--Bioré.
I have been using this brand for a while now, and actually blogged about it before here

LIFE UPDATE: Youtube channel, New Laptop, and revamped blog!

Sunday, October 16, 2016

Hello my beautiful readers.. as some of you may have probably noticed, I revamped my blog a bit, still very much simple looking and neat; but just for a change, I decided to get rid of my old template and purchased a new one from ETSY (my only go-to shop for templates).

 But anyways, this post is mainly about my current life updates, hence the title. So first, just wanted to say that I will be blogging full time again, not literally, but more often than before. My hiatus mode is finally over, 'cause I got myself a new laptop. Yay!

UNBOXING: Althea Korea Turns 1!

Saturday, September 17, 2016

Hey guys, I know this post is prolly way too long overdue but just so you know, I currently don't have any laptop to use (boo hoo!) and though I am planning to get a new one soon, I can't seem to choose which one I like. But anyhoo, enough of the blabbing.. it's better late than never right? 

So anyway, the awesome people from Althea Korea were generous enough to invite me and celebrate its very 1st birthday last July 20th of 2016! They sent me their pretty limited edition birthday box complete with a DIY party kit inside that I adore so much.

FYI: Few months ago, I was one of the lucky few who were contacted by Althea to get the first dibs of their products when they launched their website here in the PH. If you're like me and obsessed with korean skincare, you might wanna check them out because they carry a lot of korean products from very well known brands (such as Laneige, skinfood, Etude, Innisfree, etc.) to newest brands available. You name it, they probably have it! What's even more fab is that they sell the items a lot cheaper than the malls we have here. Take note, they are 100% authentic from korea and will be delivered straight to your door step without having to worry about paying tax, etc. And they have free shipping for every Php1,300 worth of products! PLUS Php300 free credit when you first sign in, Go SIGN UP HERE and get crazy ladies!!!

Seaweed Skincare Line from The Body Shop (Review)

Wednesday, January 20, 2016

Oh hey! Long time no post! I know.. Well it's 2016 I might as well make a new post after a long while of hiatus.. So anyways, today I just wanted to review this seaweed skincare line from the body shop that I just recently devoured and finished. Since I have a combination to oily skin I decided to give this a go. I've been hearing a lot of good stuff about this line from the body shop so when this travel size set went on sale last christmas, I purchased this immediately.
