Green Eyed with Freshlook Contact Lens

Hello Sunshine! You should know by now that my favorite color in the world--probably the one thing I'm sure of (sure for years, even)--is green. I love the color green. You don't event have to ask me what shade of green do I love. If I see it as green, one way or the other, I will find a love in it. Although of course I have my favorites: lime green, mint green, forest green, green-green, etc.

So anyway, can you imagine how happy I was when I got to try having green eyes? YES, I had green eyes. I mean, it was pretty obvious--if I wanted to, I can always just wear contact lenses, right? But here's the thing. I've always been scared to try contacts out. I still have 20-20 vision so damaging my eyes for vanity is something I might not be able to accept. For this reason, I don't just jump into the contact lens bandwagon. I had to make sure that the contacts I will use are safe. On top of being a beautiful accessory, the most important thing for me is safety, still, of course!

That said, I'm proud to say that I got to live the dream of having green eyes by using Freshlook Contact Lenses. I mean... really... love.

How to live a full life through wellness

Hello Sunshine! Before the holiday crazy, I welcomed the idea of living in wellness because naturally, it's a very good lifestyle to partake in. By wellness, I do mean taking in the good stuff and of course, avoiding (even letting go) the bad. This is why I get more excited with the new year than Christmas because I just love fresh beginnings--especially those that come with impeccable timings. Right now, the start of year 2015 is quite a fresh start both in my personal and work life. With this, I am more inspired to pick the ripened idea of wellness and make it my reality.

Mat Magique #BelieveInMagique challenge and results!

Hello Sunshine! I'm going to ring in the new year with a beauty challenge that I joined recently... because I #BelieveInMagique! As early as now, let me tell you that the challenge is a pretty successful one. It's about the new L'oreal Mat Magique powder*, the brand's first-ever oil control foundation. Ladies, as the name suggested, this new baby will keep you shine-free for hours!

Oh boy, do I have selfies to prove this!!! Warning, super dami kong selfies. I also included the timestamp in my photos so you have an idea how the powder set into my face as the hours went by. Please ignore the changes in lighting because I was on-the-go that day--which I think makes the powder even more amazing at its matte performance. Yes?

Local Edition in Makati

Hello Sunshine! Sometimes, all it takes, is an inspired space to also light you up. Local Edition Coffee and Tea in Perea Makati is quite the nook to fit the job. If you're looking for a quiet, tranquil, coffee place to possibly write, work, or just let time drip by, I think Local Edition cafe will be perfect. They have pretty good coffee... and really really yummy sandwiches.
