Calgary, 2017

A few days ago I went for a short trip in Calgary, Alberta… to celebrate Canada’s 150th Birthday.  The trip includes me and my family wherein we watched the Stampede parade, explore Banff again (its beauty is always stunning), shopping galore and meet my old folks from high school. Please see the video above to see the highlights of my trip!

ADOBE OMURICE | Jap food with a Pinoy twist

A few years ago, JYJ’s Yoochun was in a hit drama, Rooftop Prince. Although I know today’s 2017, I aim for a throwback of the favourite food of the “Rooftop Prince,” the OMURICE.

Omu –  omelet 

Rice – refers to the sweet and savory chicken rice it’s filled with.

Given the definition I have given to welcome my new #FOODPORN category on my blog, I will be making an Omurice from… Adobo!

“I’m home.”

I think of home, and I’d remember the moist warm rays emitted by the sun.

As my sweat slowly pours from my hair, I waved at the man who would take me somewhere to meet the reason which made me come back. I reached for the handle as I sit, looking at how the place have changed in a span of years. After a while, he stopped the engine; then I opened the door ready to run in the arms of the people I haven’t seen in a long time. They didn’t know I was there because of them, but I am glad to have them beside me again.

MY SKINCARE ROUTINE FOR ACNE SKIN

Skincare routine these days has become a lengthy multi-step process, which may appear as weird, OA and exhaustive to others. This all started when Charlotte Cho of SOKOGLAM published The Little Book of Skin Care! I believe the book mentioned about the 10 KOREAN SKIN CARE ROUTINE for a “healthy, glowing skin,” which has become a trend not only in Korea but throughout the world.
Since I have been breaking out these days due to lack of sleep, poor eating habits and stress, I joined the bandwagon to aim for a clear, blemish-free face.

Here’s my skincare routine:

To 2016,

grateful-heart1

I’ve reached the deepest part of the sea

Held to the point, I almost stumble and fall

But in my weakest, I became the strongest

For I have You who lifted me up and guided me in ways, I couldn’t even imagine

I’ve cried a river every time I fall down

Questioned all my philosophies in life

But I was able to do things that I dream

For I have You who is enough to strengthen me

A LETTER FOR THE ANXIOUS ONE

Three days ago, another academic year has started.

It is a moment of learning and meeting new people, but it was a tough time for me as I will need to face my fear yet again. To everyone who struggles, cry it all out to the Lord. Talk to him and share every pain and fear in your heart. Pray and let go.

COLOURPOP STAYCATION UNBOXING & SWATCHES

Next to Mac lipsticks, Colourpop has been my get go since it is affordable for its amazing quality. I have tried popular lip gloss style lipstick from Anastasia Beverly Hills, Kat Von D., Ciate London, even Colourpop Ultra Matte but I never really had a chance to make time applying one on my lips since I’m not a morning person, hence I’m always rushing during mornings.

One thing I like about Colourpop is that they give options to their consumers about which type of matte lip products “we” could use- they have a stick and tube lippies. Having said that, lippie stix and lipsticks have been my choice because it is not as time-consuming and much easier to apply compared to other lip products/applicator.

Just recently, Colourpop released a summer collection of their best matte lippie stix, all in one gorgeous box! I’m lucky enough to purchase one during their last re-stock for this season. 🙂
