Hello Sunshine! Change to me is the best way to welcome a season. Whether it’s to welcome the holidays or a change of weather, changing something about yourself, no matter how big or small, is the most refreshing thing to do! Now, if like Bianca Gonzales you are brave enough to liberate your hair, then you should definitely #GetSassooned!

Hello Sunshine! October is breast cancer awareness month, and I think there’s no better way to close this month, which incidentally, is also my birth month, than with an insightful look at the things that I learned throughout the year—and the importance of beauty that aims to matter. Being a beauty blogger in the Philippines opened my eyes to things that I now realized, I took for granted; like the time to read and write beautiful poems, my naturally curly hair, and even my odd way of looking at things (and by odd, I meant silver)

This time of age, beauty is no longer about having silky long hair, or flawless skin from head to toe. Beauty is about your sincerity to captivate with a kind heart and a cause, passion, or advocacy that strives to create something beautiful, each step of the way. Beauty is no longer about being gifted or born with close-to-perfection looks. It’s about your tenacity to create beautiful things—and share it.

Hello Sunshine! Imagine having perfect skin without wearing thick makeup. That’s how it felt using Tony Moly Luminous Aura Capsule CC Cream. Unlike other CC creams I’ve tried, the Luminous Aura isn’t too white—and delivers the promise of adjusting to my skin tone just right! The product’s main actives sound like a fairy tale to me—that being evening primrose flower oil, sweet amond oil, olive oil, sunflower seed oil, jojoba seed oil, baobab tree fruit extract, niacin amide and adenosine. True enough, Tony Moly Luminous Aura Capsule CC Cream is an all-in-one cream that offers sunscreen, whitening, wrinkle repair, blemish coverage, healthy radiance, complexion correction, nutrition, moisturizing hydration, luminous aura and longer lasting makeup adherence on the skin.

Hello Sunshine! I am proud of the way I think—because I always take a step further into thinking good, focusing on silver linings. That being said, I am proud of my hair. It crowns my persona with a bold expression of who I am—whether I’m feeling a certain color, curl, or style.

I believe Filipinas deserve to have their beauty brought out and developed the best way possible. With this, Filipinas everywhere will be empowered to showcase their looks and character. For this advocacy, I am happy to share that the leading provider of hair color in the Philippine salon industry, L’Oreal Professionnel, is having a special promotion to go further the lengths of empowering women with the right hair color for their skin, through proper consultation and diagnosis. It is L’oreal Professionnel’s aim to be able to educate hairstylists on the science of proper skin tone diagnosis to give all types of Filipina - mestiza, morena or chinita- the hair color that suit them best. 

Enter the Wear Your Color Proud Campaign. Through this initiative, proper consultation and diagnosis in the salon resurfaces to help empowered Filipinas get the best out of their hair color. I’m a stubborn little chica, and I’ve had my share of hair color tragedies so I’m personally so excited for the #WearYourColorProud campaign!

Hello Sunshine! Yesterday, the Christmas chill hit me seriously. It was so cold, I wasn’t able to put down my cup of tea. I was never one to like the cold weather, but then again, colder seasons mean more fun in fashion. Lots of layers and playful textures are springing from every corner, and what better way to welcome the Christmas season than a nice, therapeutic online shopping spree!

Hello Sunshine! Raise your hand if you've experienced trapping a strand of hair or a tiny dot of dirt between your plastic cover and your paperback.

Do you remember how frustrating it was to plot, measure, prepare, cut, tape, and fold static plastic just to realize in the end that you made that careless mistake? And to make matters worse, you would have to live with that error because you can't re-do the process without harming your book!

Hello Sunshine! It's more fun kapag may souvenir. I don't know about you but I used to always go with friends to a photography studio for every occasion--whether it's an exam day, intramurals, or sportsfest! I think Filipinos love to treasure memories, and keeping photos could possibly be the easiest way to make memories last; and to revisit them!


But the digital age led to us settling with digital copies of pictures. Admittedly, most of my photos are just saved digitally because of the convenience it brings; however, it's also a bit of a hassle to reminisce with digital pictures. It's just not the same as touching an actual photo--perhaps even, keeping a photo close to heart.

Hello Sunshine! Today starts my birthday countdown, (I’m turning 25 on Oct 20!) and after that, I am ready to be excited for Christmas! I know it’s just around the corner because nights feel longer and there’s a chill in the air that makes me want to just cuddle; so yes. I’m looking forward to an amazing season. That being said, I closed my excitement over the newest and biggest Bobbi Brown branch (at SM Megamall) to open in the Philippines by learning more about what’s coming up with the brand this coming Yuletide months.

Hello Sunshine! What is a dry oil? When you think of oil, it's almost always related to grease and fat! But dry oil, a skincare innovation that lets you enjoy the nourishment of body oil without the grease is completely different from that notion! When I first tried dry oil, it was in the form of Pevonia Dry Oil spray. Now, my love for dry oil has gotten yummier thanks to The Body Shop!

Like this post if you love to chase beautiful things.





Hello Sunshine! When I started blogging, I had this tagline "Chase Beautiful Things". To date, I'm still bound to the spirit of chasing beautiful things and this passion, I translate to a lot of things. There're my love for sceneries, such as a romantic sunset or an elusive moon rise; and my love for words, thus my growing collection of books and poems which I myself try to churn everyday. Sad, because lately I haven't been able to post on my poetry blog because my poems have been quite mediocre to my standards... but at the core of each day I face, the essence of my optimism and enthusiasm still is about my journey to experience, witness and hopefully live by beautiful things.


So when I saw Shiseido Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, I was floored. Click after the jump to learn why.
