A Bonné, for a smooth and radiant skin


A Bonne is a spa milk salt brand that was created in Thailand. They use natural local ingredients that made them popular among women for fairer, whiter and more radiant skin.

One of my sisters is a fan of their shower salt and she’s been using it for years. I even remember how their previous packaging looks like, with a cute cow. Now, she has smooth and radiant skin but still continues to use it. I’m glad I had the chance to use them as well and I’ll share with you my thoughts about them here.

A Bonne has various kinds of products; lotions, soaps, bath salts, spa yogurt salts and hair spa milk to name a few. But today, I’ll be reviewing their lotion, bar soap and shower salt.Read More »

Beauty Trends, affordable and effective skincare that won’t break the bank

img_9175Yesterday, I saw a poll on Facebook that said, “You can only have one, which would you choose: clear skin, all the makeup products on your wishlist or a good hair day, every day.” As someone who is always getting a pimple here and there, and living in the city where pollution triggers my sensitive skin, I chose clear skin.

To help me achieve having clear skin, I’ve been using Beauty Trends products. They have moisturizer, nose pack, peel-off mask, hydrating facial mask, toner and more.Read More »

Things To Do and How To Get To La Mesa Ecopark, Quezon City

La Mesa Ecopark has been one of the places I wanted to visit for so long when I wanted a quick escape from the city. The location discourages me to travel, though, as whenever I hear “Quezon City”, I always think it’s too far from me.

Last week, the urge to go somewhere was strong and I felt burned out from work so I really needed to go somewhere with lots of trees. I brought Mom with me and off we go to La Mesa Ecopark.Read More »

How I Recovered My Hacked Instagram Account

How I Recovered My Hacked Instagram Account
One of the many things I don’t like to happen on my social media accounts is to get hacked. I’ve heard a lot of horror stories about it. The hacker would delete all the photos and sell the account (if you have thousands of followers) or even worse is when they post nasty things on your behalf. Ugh. Can be really stressful.

Yes, this happened to me months ago and I’ve been extra careful since then for it not to happen again.

It was a lovely evening at a park with my niece, while I was browsing my Instagram, a pop-up message that said I changed my password appeared on my screen. I was surprised as I didn’t do it myself. I told myself that it’s okay, as long as I won’t log out of my IG, I’ll be able to recover it again with my email. I was wrong.Read More »

Are you into kdramas , too? What’s your favorite?

This month, I watched Moon Lover: Scarlet Heart. It’s beautiful! Made me cry a few times and made my heart happy seeing the scenes of Lee Joon-gi and Lee Ji-eun. A lot of people would like to have season two. If there would be, I’ll be one of those people waiting for it.Read More »

Color: 03 Natural Beige

I don’t own a concealer prior to purchasing this one. I’m glad that it’s in a travel-size tube as I wasn’t sure if I’ll like it or not. The color was perfect for my skin tone and it’s doing a good job in concealing my dark spots due to pimples.Read More »

Wedding of the Century Bridal Fair + Directory of Top Caliber Wedding Suppliers | Philippines

Wedding of the Century Bridal Fair + Directory of Top Caliber Wedding Suppliers | PhilippinesI attended the Wedding of the Century Bridal Fair last Saturday and got captivated by the elegant wedding gown and classic suit creations of their featured designers. Which my hope of getting married soon intensified (no pressure, bf). Seeing myself wear one of the designs, especially of Chynna Mamawal, would be a dream come true!

In a fashion show way, the event showcased the new creations of Kim Jao, Edwin Uy, Dave Ocampo and Chynna Mamawal. With wedding songs at the background, I found myself thinking of my own wedding while longingly gazing on the robes, wedding gowns and suits on the run way.Read More »
