In my quest to exercise writing skills that I discovered back in 5th grade, I’ve blogged on a good number of things over the years. My list of past host sites include Livejournal (LJ!), Multiply (um… it went downhill after turning into a marketplace), and Blogspot (my meh phase) until my nomadic self finally found a home in WordPress. What was once a House-of-Rants-turned-Food-Blog has somehow morphed to accommodate reviews on beauty products as well. Why, if I had to label this particular blog, I’d end up with “lifestyle blog.” Welcome to my eclectic world!

Realizing that good food has always been one of the great unifiers has opened up so many possibilities. This is the food blog of a learner, always finding something new and amazing. At the same time, I am passionate about my search for holy grail beauty products that won’t bleed my wallet dry. I discovered a love of cosmetics at a young age when I would often watch my mom perform her beauty routine with such gusto. This is the beauty blog of a girly-girl, chockful of goodies that make me love being a girl. Finally, where would I be without broadening my horizons? This is the travel blog (food trips and beauty hauls!) of an adventure-lover, sharing my path with readers whenever I get the chance.

Enjoy. 🙂
