Hello Sunshine! Do you want to perk up your library? Because I do. Few weeks before, I decided to make time for a book and was appalled by how unorganized my shelf was! See, I’m just your typical bookworm. In between books, I buy new and even 2nd hand books from thrift shops and book sales. Then, next thing I’d know, my book lag is too long to even count, and I put myself to a self-imposed book shopping band; which of course I probably won’t keep up with. So I’d get up on my toes and start organizing books by what seems fit—by author, by size, by genre, by need-to-read. Over and over again, I will be facing the mess and would think of cute and fun ways to reinvent my library. It’s half of what I love the most about collecting books!

So today, I’ll be sharing you five ways to organize your library so it would never look dreary, messy, and intimidating. These tips are based on my personal experiences in growing my collection, and even, in helping out friends on how they should organize their space. Feel free to copy and share with me your own ideas too! Don't forget to connect with more book lovers through my private book club!

Hello Sunshine! Did I ever tell you that I'm afraid of dentists? Yes, I'm very VERY afraid of dentists. That being said, I do whatever I could to prevent trips to dentists--so comes my belief in a good dental hygiene. A beautiful smile is a woman's secret weapon right? Quite frankly, I think the most charismatic and sincere smile can rule the world--so goes the story of me finding ways to yield my inner goddess through the perfect sunny-loving smile to reflect my always looking at the silver lining, bright attitude.

Did you know that the painful stinging in other brands of mouthwash can potentially damage your mouth tissues? Now, that just convinced me to give OraCare more than a minute of my life.

Hello Sunshine! When you say coverage, first things that come to mind are blazers and concealers because one, I get cold easily and you would almost always catch me wearing a blazer to keep me warm (it's like my safety blanket); and two, because I hardly get enough sleep that concealers become a rudimentary concept in my regimen. But lately, I'm pleasantly surprised to discover a new way to cover up, this time for another aspect of my life that I'm truly passionate about, BOOKS!

Hello Sunshine! Since I learned how to bake and cook, I earned a deeper sense of appreciation of food. If before, it was all about how a menu will appeal to my mood and tastebuds, now it’s also about bursting flavors and a harmony of aroma, spices and colors! In hindsight, I am thankful because I wouldn’t be able to see these different ways of enjoying food a bit more if I didn’t decide to try my cooking hat. Today, I want to share with you my secret into enjoying a little more!

Hello Sunshine! Do you find yourself always on the go, ready for anything? I do too! I think that's something we millenials share. We like the motion and we are always working hard to fulfill our greatest passions; sometimes, at the expense of our skin. I mean, even as a Filipina beauty blogger, I admit to committing the grave crime of neglecting my skin once in a while... but that is about to change. I join the band of women who wants to stop dealing with the same skincare problems over and over! I want to bring life back to my skin so my inner strength "ibuki" will keep me looking radiant every day.

I share the dream of people in their early 20's to mid- 30's: the dream to change the world and make things happen. But sometimes, living for the dream means a lifestyle that is unforgiving to the skin. We don't sleep well, eat junk food and forget to practice proper regimen to preserve the natural glow of our skin. Oddly, in the effort to put the best face forward, we overlook the fine practice of proper skincare. Today I share with you what blogs and magazines have been raving about as the best beauty breakthrough of the year, Shiseido Ibuki.

Like this post if you love shopping online!





Hello Sunshine! Because September means shopping (in my mind), I've been visiting my favorite online shops for some gift ideas and personal finds that I'd like to buy. For beauty and fragrance, I go to Zalora and Luxola. For scoring HUGE deals, I go to CashCashPinoy.

It's so exciting how there's thousands of amazing finds online that you don't even have to go to the mall anymore! These days, I think online shopping is a shopaholic's dirty little secret! :) And of course, I'm your enabler! Being a beauty blogger in the Philippines means keeping up with the latest trends in beauty and yes, even fragrances. But trends aside, there shouldn't be anything getting in the way between a great deal and your shopping bag! I found this on my email, and thought it'd be great to share the news with you. Maybe you received it too, but since some emails just end up in Spam, I thought a nice reminder wouldn't hurt. (This is partly because this fragrance list features my all time favorite perfume, Lanvin Eclat d'arpege)
Zalora Fragrances

The best part? I have a discount code for you! :)

Hello Sunshine! Are you the type who's focused on applying for a dream job or working up a career ladder? Well, I get you. I'm turning 25 next month, and more than ever, I feel that I should start doing something out of my life and preparing for a future that is more relaxed and stable. Of course, I still have room to throw in more fun and my kinds of crazy, but I am very focused on more mature and responsible things like a career, not just a job, saving and not just earning. Because of that, I also work hard in treating myself with more proper things, like a relaxing spa treatment after a week-long grind, and even great shoes to walk in, especially when my feet are already suffocated with pain! This is where my new footwear sole sister comes in, Butterfly Twists!

Hello Sunshine! I have to be honest, I have bad feet. I'm not really a great dancer and I don't have a strut. But that doesn't mean I should neglect taking care of my feet.

Hello Sunshine! One of the most empowering and inspiring (not to forget, intriguing) stories for me is the story of Alice in Wonderland. It is filled with so much subtext that to read between the lines would take forever! Aside from that, it's also set in a world that tickles me to think, "Hey! This is a graphic designers disneyland!) But kidding aside, this September, Majolica Majorca Philippines invites you to go fall into a rabbit hole of a fantastic collection inspired by Alice in Wonderland, the Fantastic Fantasy Autumn collection of Majolica Majorca!

On the other side of the mansion door,
an astonishing quirky tea party was being held.
Is that a reflection of her whimsical desire?
It’s a story of a girl charmed by
a fascinating world full of surprises.

Hello Sunshine! I once told a good friend of mine, it’s great to float around. That it’s great to have one foot hovering a whisper away reality just to keep things interesting. She agreed, and to date, I’m still floating my way to making the most out of myself.

Achieving a dream is part perspiration and determination. I’ll even go out of limb and say, it’s also part luck. But whatever the exact equation, a chunk of one’s success is in your ability to bridge the distance between where you are right now, and where you want to be in the future.

Are you a dreamer like me? Here are three things to try to help you land your dream job.
