5 Reasons Why I Had a Great Shopping Experience with BeautyMNL + HAUL

We at BeautyMNL want you to feel your most beautiful. Every. Single. Day.

Filipina beauty is perhaps the most diverse in the world. We are a tribe of morenas, mestizas, and chinitas. Our hair falls in thick curls, gentle waves, or pin-straight sheets. Our smiles have made us famous in other countries, whether they’re framed by lips full or thin. No two Filipinas are alike—and that’s the most awesome thing about being one of us.

Our beauty doesn’t fit the mold—it breaks it. So it’s not hard to imagine why, in a world steeped in Photoshopped images and unattainable standards of perfection, it can be a challenge to appreciate our own look. And we know this, because we’re one of you, too! source:BeautyMNL


I’ve been seeing BeautyMNL on IG as people I follow often tag them but it never occurred to me to shopwith them before. That’s one of my regrets because it turned out, after shopping from their site; I had lots of reasons why I love them and that I should shop from them again soon.

They have a wide range of skincare and makeup products from cult favorites to local brands. I was also happy to see some Korean products from their shop. They also have accessories!

The Happy List | Vol. 08

It’s been raining for days now and I love it! Though, it’s a little inconvenient because i go to work walking in it, this long weekend made up for it. It can rain all it want because I’m only staying at home with my hot chocolate drink and Korean dramas. And another thing I’m thankful about this rain is it gives a cool weather. What’s the weather in your area now?

Also, students are back to school. Seeing them makes me miss my high school life and friends.

Anyway, here’s my happy list:Read More »

For The Love of Kdrama 

May 27, 2017

I haven’t seen Wendy (a friend and former colleague) in a long time, for almost four months, I guess. But for the love of kdrama, we finally decided to meet again.

Around 11:00 AM, we met at a fast food restaurant. How I miss her! We then went to her office to get the copies of Pinocchio (kdrama). I have started with the first five episodes already last week but I didn’t have episodes 6 to 20. Their office was nice and wide. They have strong wifi signal (something that I don’t have at work yet. Haha), pantry with swing couches, pretty receiving area for clients/visitors and other cool amenities. After the office tour, I almost wanted to work with them. Haha! Read More »

Love > Distance: Together Again // Venice Piazza in McKinley Hill

February 25th. Even before Andy was here in Manila, I’ve been to Venice Piazza Mall once.

It was a weekend and we originally didn’t have a plan to go out of town so we decided to go here instead. Also, we decided to make it as a meeting place to meet one of our friends, Sofia. It’s our first time to meet Sofia! It was really nice to know more about Sofia, too. She’s bubbly and talkative. I’m awkward in real life (haha!) but I got comfortable talking with her and we’d laugh to certain topics too.

Me, Sofia and Andy

Love > Distance: Together Again // Andy’s First Time Here in Manila

I’ve been with Andy for almost a week now and I’m so happy to be with him again after being away from each other for the past 9 months. Looking back, I feel like it’s so far away. All the waiting and video calls. It was hard. I miss him terribly everyday.

But here we are! Together again! A week longer than our Taiwan trip 9 months ago as he’ll stay here in Manila for 21 days. Yep, he’s here in Manila for the first time! ❤

Below is a daily record of what we’ve been up to:

February 22nd. Andy’s first day here in Manila! Because I went to the doctor first that morning, he waited for me at the airport for almost 45 minutes and he’s complaining about the heat here already. Haha! I was soooo happy seeing him. 😍 Waited for 9 months to finally hug him again! Read More »
