Beauty, Style / 20.04.2017

This is my first post on makeup since committing to my blog early this year. But I'll be publishing a bit more on beauty in the coming days, too, since it's just something I have a head full of knowledge on too! Many easily associate me with beauty because of my work but my journey into beauty was accidental. I first started out in magazine publishing set out to be a features editor--covering the general lifestyle beat rather than zeroing in on beauty, but I stumbled into the beauty beat because no one was really covering it in the title...

Hello friends! <3 I'm back with the third installment of series featuring today's beauty influencers and I'm featuring Mikki Galang, who just relaunched her blog at mikkigalang.com last week. We met a few years back at a Laura Mercier event and I remember complimenting her white eyeliner on her bottom waterline because it was so solid, I could never get mine to keep from fading. Little did I know then that she's adept at eye makeup as she started out her blog by posting creative makeup. These days it's great to see such posts because it adds to the diversity of...

Beauty, Works / 08.01.2016

Interrupting my little series with a work update. Here's my beauty editorial shoot with Working Mom from their December 2015-January 2016 issue featuring Lauren and Company's Krystle Rius Delos Reyes. I think she had just given birth a month before we shot this, mygosh. What is it with these mothers who look so great during and post-pregnancy?! Hehe. (Remember Nikka?) I worked with Archie Tolentino again for this shoot and the most kilig thing about thing this is when he posted a photo on his Instagram and tagged @narsissist, NARS official Instagram account, they liked our editorial photo! <3 <3 <3...

Martha Sta. Barbara also known as The Beauty Junkee takes a selfie at an Asus event. I still remember meeting Martha when I was pregnant with Mateo. We were at an event and she instantly remembered me because of her PR work where she invited some members of the media to an event. I thought it was so nice of her to remember me even if I wasn't able to make it to her event :D What I distinctly remember about her during that night, however, was when she shared that she wasn't into whitening products because she loves her morena skin....

I am starting a new series to jumpstart my blog (ahem). I've interviewed some of my favorite beauty bloggers turned friends to share who they are in a nutshell.  As a writer, I've always been more comfortable asking questions and interviewing, so maybe this is why this series is how I chose to "launch" my blog.Here's one thing I truly love about our local beauty bloggers: Their style of makeup and beauty is so attainable. Their looks are...

Beauty, Works / 30.11.2015

My first Christmas activity for the year turned out to be work related. I was assigned to shoot a beauty editorial for Working Mom magazine featuring the expectant Nikka Martinez-Garcia. Would you believe she was well into her second trimester in these photos? I know. Life can be so unfair, haha! Nikka and I met in high school where she was a couple of batches younger than I. Our eldest girls are only a few days apart, and now she's very close to giving birth to her second girl! Here are the rest of photos from our beauty editorial. ...

I think I can try Kim's (Hi Kim!!!) shade.[/caption] Ever since I began coloring my hair, I’ve only done it one way: out of a box. Mostly this is my cheapskate ways, but it’s also because I can’t imagine sitting for hours at a salon for my hair. Now that salon days are less of an occurrence for me, maybe I might feel differently ;)Anyone who knows my husband and I well knows that hair coloring is an...

It’s not you, it’s me. That’s what I say to my Happy Skin x Preview Shut Up & Kiss Me Moisturizing Matte lippie in Hot Stuff (P599). Because on every one else, it looks sophisticated and slightly vampy, but on myself it can turn me into Morticia Adams. [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="448.0"] Hello, Gomez. Credits to addamsfamily.com.[/caption] I’ve always wanted a deep red lipstick that I could pull off and while stalking Hot Stuff through friends’ Instagram posts and blogs, I thought it was the one. But like most vampy...

Beauty, Womanhood / 16.04.2015

There was a period in my life when I could (and would) change my nail polish shade every week. Although I'm not very adventurous with shades, I've always enjoyed seeing my nails properly groomed because I feel it's the cherry on top of the beauty cake. But that was a couple of years ago and I confess that perhaps because of other domestic matters, I let the cherry slide. Sometimes I just find it too tasking to wait for layers of nail polish to dry when I need to catch up with my toddler or change a diaper, and sometimes...
