I’ve always been excited by each new Viva Glam release from MAC. It’s a great
excuse reason to add to my lippie collection while also doing a good deed. But at the same time, I still want to pick out lipsticks that I know would be a flattering choice. From reading the reviews, seeing the swatches, and taking into consideration how flattering fuchsia lipsticks are, I instantly knew that
I just had to have the MAC Viva Glam Taraji P Henson Matte Lipstick (USD 17.50 / PHP 1,050).

How essential is having constant internet connection with you when you travel? Admittedly, it wasn’t a big deal for me before. As long as the hotel had wifi, then I was perfectly fine with waiting to get back to home base before doing updates. However, since starting as a freelancer and social media manager with work stuff conducted primarily via e-mail, Facebook, and other SNS, staying connected regularly throughout most of the day has become a priority. And when I’m not sure how convenient getting local sim cards are, I turn to rentals. Today, I’ll share my experiences with Flytpack Pocket WiFi!

So… I’m back from a months-long hiatus! This was completely unintentional, but I had to go on a trip and make up for missing work. And then when I was about to start writing again, there were issues with my photo hosting site that rendered a good half of the blog entries here photo-less. (Arg!) Long story short, I got a little overwhelmed and decided to take a break, so I wouldn’t put too much pressure on myself and burn out. But I’m back now, and I’m gradually fixing old blog entries to regain their photos.
In my extended leave of absence, I had the chance to re-evaluate my beauty collection and rotate skincare and makeup products, so this gave me a chance to try out a bunch of new stuff that I can’t wait to share. Without further ado, let’s get things started (again) with Kiehl’s Calendula Deep Cleansing Foaming Face Wash (P1,725).

It just occurred to me that I haven’t done my nails for months! In the horrible humid weather, the prospect of dealing with chipped polish was off-putting. But now that it’s supposed to get a little bit cooler, colorful “talons” are on my mind once more. Withshyan Peel Off Nail Curator (P260) from Althea Korea is going to be helping me achieve those NOTD goals.

I think I’ve figured out my 2017 beauty goal halfway through the year: I’m planning to explore the world of stick concealers! Why cover-up sticks specifically? They are so convenient to tote around that I can see myself popping one or two sticks in my daily makeup bag for a quick round of hide-and-seek with blemishes and dark circles. I’ll start off the collection with Shiseido Perfecting Stick Concealer in 22 Natural Light (PHP 1,350).
