Success Lounge International Makes Success Within Everyone's Reach

Hi Everyone!

Since I became a wife and a mom, my dreams and ambitions have become bigger and bigger everyday. However, I sometimes think that success is only for a chosen few or for the rich.  But when I met John Calub, Philippines' number 1 success coach, last Thursday in his recently opened Success Lounge International (SLI), I became more sure that success is for everyone and is within anyone's reach.

Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks

Hi friends!

Yes. It's another lipstick post for y'all! This time about the Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks. I've seen this all over YouTube and have been dying to get may hands on these beauties. Unfortunately, they are not available in our local department stores. These can only be purchased through online re-sellers. I wish Rimmel will be available in the Philippines one day.  Until that day comes, I am going to settle for online shops.

Red China by Super Bowl

Hi Everyone!

I first learned about the newly-opened Red China by Super Bowl almost a month ago when they invited bloggers for a food-tasting event which I was unable to attend unfortunately. Learning that it's a restaurant under Super Bowl (which is probably one of my favorite Chinese restaurants), I promised myself I will pay this resto a visit with my family. So a couple of weeks ago, my husband and I tried Red China and in a nutshell, our dining experience is not bad at all.

Superbook's Bida ng Pagbabago Roadshow

 Hi Everyone!

As a child of the 80's & 90's,  I grew up watching shows like Batibot, Princess Sarah, Patrash the Dog of Flanders, Flying House ,and Superbook. Quite frankly I find some of the cartoon shows today distasteful as they contain adult humor and violence. It kinda made me miss those cartoons I used to love as a kid. Cartoons that are full of moral lessons which I also want Yomi to watch and love.

One of the most recent cosmetics brands to land on Philippine shores is Collection Cosmetics.

Long lasting lipstick locks colour to lips all day. Enriched with SPF15. Soft, smooth formula.

Terribly Terrific Twos

Hey Everyone!
"When there's a toddler in the house, minority rules."
My one year and a half daughter is already showing some "terrible twos" traits. A few weeks ago, she flat out said to me, "Kulit. Mo." just because I didn't give her chocolate. I honestly thought that was hilarious and adorable at the same time.

M&Co. Long Lasting Matte Lipstick with Moisturizer

Hey Friends!

Here I am again with another lipstick post! This time I'm featuring/reviewing M&Co. Long Lasting Matte Lipstick with Moisturizer.  I've actually known about this brand for quite a while now. I've seen it first in SM North department store but I never really paid much attention to it. All I know about it is that it's a Filipino brand endorsed by (I am not sure if owned by) Mikee Conjuangco. I thought this is one of those expensive department store brands. But when I saw Bing Castro of Project Awesome gush about a lipstick from M&Co., I was surprised at how affordable the products from this line are. 

M&Co Long Lasting Matte Lipstick with Moisturizer:
Long-wearing matte lipstick with moisturizing properties and lip protection from dryness and chapping, as it gives long-lasting matte color on lips.

FOTD: Trying out different lipsticks for a smokey eye

Hi Everyone!

I was so bored this morning so I thought I'd play with a little make up while the little miss is napping.

Here's my version of a subtle smokey eye. I used Wet n' Wild ColorIcon palette in Petal Pusher.

Unveiling Shu Uemura's The Lightbulb

Hi everyone!

How y'all doin'?

It's been raining for the past couple of days. I hope you're all safe and dry in your part of the world.

Yesterday, I attended a beauty workshop organized by Shu Uemura, Japan's no. 1 make up brand. The workshop showcased the brand's latest foundation called The Lightbulb. So what is different about his foundation? Well, this foundation claims to give us a beautiful glow under any light and provide perfect coverage with 12-hour moisture.

Banana Peel's Tickle My Sole Collection

Hi Everyone!

Eversince Yomi  learned to walk, I have been wanting to get her a pair of cute girly flip flops. Aside from the design of course, I wanted it to be durable and affordable. My sister bought her a pair with a cartoon character design on it but I just didn't like it that much. It felt rather cheap and the sole is slippery. She slipped a couple of times while wearing it. At the mall, I saw a very cute pair from Ipanema but when I saw a price tag I immediately put it back! GRABE! Ang mahal! Eh lalakihan lang naman niya agad yun noh! So naghanap na lang ako ulit. Pero wala ako nakita until I saw this! Look at that pink and black polka dot slippers from Banana Peels's Tickle My Sole. Its cuteness just melts my heart!

L.A. Colors Lipsticks

Hey Everyone!

By now, I am sure you know I am a lipstick addict. I have quite a number of tubes in my collection already. I hope I can share them all with you one day. I am not very picky with brands as long as they seem reputable I am willing to try. Although, I steer clear from lipsticks sold in markets or tiangges especially those that are very suspicious (fake). So here's another lipstick post for y'all!

Kokuryu Summer Cake

Hey Y'all!

I know it's not summer yet but I thought I'd post something "summery". Hehehe! No. This is not an outing post or a swimsuit post either. But it's about Kokuryu's Summer Cake! Yes. From the same brand your grandmama's foundation probably came from. I am actually having some nostalgic moment right now. Anyhooo, I already gave in and bought this baby (oldie) after so many days of reading reviews and contemplating.

Importance of Sound Sleep to Baby's Development

Hey Everyone!

I understood the importance of sleep when I became a mom. I realized the value of a good night's sleep not just for me but most especially for my daughter. When she doesn't get a good rest at night she becomes very irritable the next morning. Hindi ba tayo nga ding matatanda kapag hindi nakakatulog ng maayos sa gabi mainit ang ulo pagkagising sa umaga. (well, ganun kasi ako eh. hehe.)  Any mother or father knows how valuable it is when his or her baby sleeps through the night. Pampers understands the importance of quality sleep for baby and for the family completely.

Mom Gone Foodie | Wangfu Chinese Cafe

Hey Y'all!

It was little sister's birthday last Friday so she decided to treat us to dinner (Thanks, B!) We had dinner at Wangfu Chinese Cafe which is located at the ground floor of Il Terrazzo along Tomas Morato Ave. We were actually brainstorming about where to eat a few days before but then she decided to take us to Wangfu so we can try it out. She has already eaten there once before but it was a first for me.

Kokuryu Cream Cake Foundation

Hey Everyone!

My earliest memory of cosmetics would either be about Avon or Kokuryu. My mother uses Avon cosmetics ever since we were little while my grandmother and our "yaya" back then uses Kokuryu. What really stuck to me was that very distinct "make up smell" from Kokuryu's cake foundation. 

Yes. Before we had the myriad variety of foundations now, there was Kokuryu Cake Foundation and I am surprised that there's still Kokuryu products in leading department stores today. So last week, I was browsing through their products (I was originally planning on buying the summer cake because I've been hearing some buzz about it for awhile.) when I saw this Cream Cake and I thought I'd try this first instead.

Cream Cake Foundation is a sheer make-up base perfect for different  skin types. A creamy , beauty essential oil-moistened for easy application. Makes your skin feel soft and smooth to the touch. This foundation stays fresh for hours. Use Kokuryu Cream Cake Foundation when going for a swim, It's water-proof and non-smearing nature lets you indulge in outdoor sports, beautifully.

Make Up 101: A Basic Make Up Workshop JOIN NOW!

Hey you! Hot Mommas and Gorgeous Ladies!

Make up is probably my first love. Since I was a kid about 5 or so, I've been tinkering and playing around with my mothers make up. A kind of love that grew with me and has turned into my passion. Everything I learned about make up and its application was self-taught. I did not attend any formal school and I learned through magazines, books, blogs, videos and most of all, experience.
