Hello Sunshine! You all know about my love of reading. I've been sharing my book reviews with you for years, and in ways more than one, I have been sharing that passion in every way I can too. Today, I'd like to share with you a great new movement that marries shopping and that love for reading together. And what's more, it even tops off the gesture with an act of kindness that doesn't just warms the heart; but also, changes lives.

Hello Sunshine! Rain or shine, you can now be a fresh-faced beauty with Pinkbox accessories. Few days ago, I went shopping for accessories from their Greenbelt branch because their unveiling of the new Pinkbox face just inspired me to pay my favorite girl accessories store a visit. Oh yeah, the new face of Pinkbox is Verniece :) Learn more about their artisan hair accessories from their launch event at Zarzuela here.

Hello Sunshine! Would you agree with me that some things are best done with friends? I'm talking about watching a movie, dancing, shopping and yes, even makeovers! Today, I'm so excited to share with you a beauty wishlist that any makeup maven would totally understand--a beauty or makeup tool wishlist! Makeup tools for me are like shoes to most women--I just can't get enough of them. Fortunately, I found a website that offers wholesale prices and free international shipping, with wonderful customer service commitments too!

Curious to know what online store I'm referring to? Head on over to Sammydress Makeup Tool website to learn more!

Hello Sunshine! I'm guessing that the primary reason you're on my page is because you love beauty as much as I do. We girls, who love things beautiful, are always cloaked with the desire to share and discover new and fresh reasons to further fall in love with, well, beautiful things. That, my dear, is a pure sign of our connection to each other. We like learning and opening up endless possibilities to bask in the world of beauty and cherish the little and big reasons that makes each waking day beautiful.

The answer is in you.

Like this post if you love having beautiful eyes and sexy, fluttering lashes!





Hello Sunshine! By now you probably know how much I am paranoid over eye care! Among the many reasons to be hooked on beauty, I sit with my love for eye care products because I dread having sagging eyes. The eyes are the windows to the soul, right? So I think it's just right that we take utmost care of it! As a rule, I always follow moisturizing the eye area not only because it's the most delicate skin area on our face; but also, because the eye area needs the care the most! Did you know that the skin around the eyes can't produce oil of its own, thus can't naturally moisturize than the rest of the face (and body)? Because of that, using moisturizers or creams dedicated for the sole purpose of hydrating the eye area is a must! Not only will that skincare habit prevent wrinkles, with the right choice of product, you can even prevent puffiness and dark circles.

Like this post if you love poems.

Hello Sunshine! I believe that there is magic in this world—not the sparkly circus type; but rather, the arresting quiet touch that relaxes into a mystery and lapses down until you sleep and wake up again. When it comes to imagining (and perhaps, reimagining) beauty, I like to believe that part of accepting it is having faith in the mystical things. The feelings that crashes down with a big gulp; or those thoughts that circles around a timeless fire.

Today, I want to share with you that magic through poetry. Continue reading because I will be giving away poetry books by Iris Orpi by the end of this post.

Before all else, the context. I “met” Iris through Ms. Sunshine Plata, who is her friend and is a coffee painter that I met back in college, through a journalism feature writing class. Come to think of it, it’s very interesting how our paths crossed, completely candid, yet perfect. Iris is a kindred soul who expresses a lot of her passion (kept and unswept) through her writing. To further give you an idea, I will indulge you with two poems from two of her books which I will be giving away on this blog.

Hello Sunshine! Every time a controversial book is out, do you feel the dire need to read what the news can't stop talking about? I do! Sometimes, my curiosity gets the best of me that I quest for a book find based on headlines! No shame here! So the controversy about the 4th Robert Langdon book by Dan Brown spread like fire, I had to fan the flames in my head and know what it's all about. All the more because the controversy wasn't because of a religion, but because of race (or if I may say, a publicly shameful display of nationalism, or bigotry).

What is Inferno by Dan Brown about?

In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces . . . Dante’s Inferno.
