[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="576.0"] MTV VJ Aryanna Epperson (left) and Beauty Editor Kim Palanca (right) show off their crowning glory. 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...

Say hello to my son, Mateo. And to me too, since I’ve been out a while. Hehe! In my defense, I was busy cooking up a human and then bringing it out into the world. Mateo was born on May 30 and it was nine days before we were scheduled to give birth. I’ll share my birth story in another post, but suffice to say, our newest bundle of joy decided to surprise everyone and couldn’t seem to wait to see the world. This post is actually a late Father’s Day post, because I want to share a little about why we named...

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...

Babies, babies, babies! I'm always elated whenever friends conceive and begin their journey to motherhood. Motherhood is one of the best things I've done with my life so far and I would indeed count it as one of my top experiences. Last week I was invited to Sabs Hernandez's (aka The Makeup Maven's) baby shower thrown by Rustan's for Baby Henri at the Raffles Makati Writers Bar. It was a fun afternoon of delicious high tea, games, and of course chika, and I'm glad I was able to meet more beauty bloggers.

It's been quite a hot day and all I wanted to do since I finished eating dinner was jump in the shower and wash off my makeup. Ever had one of those days? I think we're all going to be having more and more of those days as summer approaches and these past few weeks, I've been trying out Pond's newest facial wash the White Beauty Pearl Cleansing Gel. I was able to attend its launch with Sampleroom last month and perhaps because those days weren't exactly the introduction of the season of the sun just yet, I didn't fully...

We just celebrated our girl's second (*ugly cry*) birthday party over the weekend and we decided to do something low key which she would enjoy. Initially I wasn't really sold on throwing her a party but when I realized that we're spending her last few months as an only child and soon she'll be learning what it's like to have a sibling, I thought it was a good opportunity to deposit and invest in her love tank. I've also casually been asking other moms for tips on helping their eldest welcome another sibling just to prepare.

There really wasn't much question...

Since becoming pregnant a second time, I've been reminded of one of the "conversation starters" I quite dislike and I wonder why Filipinos think it's okay to say, "Let me guess… (They take a step back and examine me from head to foot) I think you're having a boy." Filipino wivestales say a woman pregnant with a boy looks tired while a baby girl makes her look more blooming. This translates in my brain as:

Girrrrrrl, you don't look too good. You don't got that 'pregnancy glow'. You're not glowing, therefore, it can't be a girl.

 

Of course I just smile,...

Hello! Just in case you've been reading my blog and have wondered where I've gone, this my post to explain. If you haven't been reading my blog or haven't been wondering where I've been, this is still my blog to explain it. Hehe. I only realized the subject matter doesn't actually change after typing my sentence ;)I'm still here, I can still write and I haven't forgotten my password. The first reason for my absence is a happy one: I'm preggo! We found out last October and kept it a bit mum for a while. I was off to a...
