Hello Sunshine! Just admit it. There are days when you wish you didn't have to take care of your skin. Sometimes, it's such a hassle to have to make sure you use the right products over or under your makeup. This is why it's such a blessing for me to find skincare products suitable for sensitive skin and a busy schedule! Today, I want to share with you the skincare routine that saved my skin from all the laziness in my bones! Because of this skincare regimen, I became more diligent in taking care of my skin, and at the same time, I actually ended up enjoying every bit of it. For your information, this by far is the best skincare regimen I've tried--not to mention most gentle one. And to no surprise, the brand behind it is Clinique.

Hello Sunshine! Do you suffer from the occasional dull and dry skin? I get what you mean. I also go through those days, and I must say, when your skin is feeling dull and dry, no matter how great your makeup is, it will just refuse to adhere to your skin! Truth is, sometimes the reason behind your caking makeup is not the makeup itself but your un-ready skin. So today, I just want to share a favorite exfoliating cleanser that is gentle enough for regular use (though I would recommend you just use this every other day, or after a day of full and heavy makeup). I'm talking about Pevonia Skincare's Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser*!

Hello Sunshine! If my memory serves me right, I’ve only been hospitalized thrice in my lifetime: twice for dengue and once for dehydration. Since my  last confinement, I made a mental note to always hydrate for my health. Being well-hydrated is a step closer to glowing skin anyway, so it’s a win-win situation for me.

The gift of health and wellness is something that we sometimes neglect because of our busy schedules. But this yuletide season, while I research about proper hydration for an article I have to write for an online magazine, I also stumbled upon the advantages of drinking alkaline water for health!

Hello Sunshine! What anti-aging skincare are you using as of the moment? Personally, I use two ranges. When I'm in Manila, I use my Clinique Dramatically Different Lotion; while I use my Nutox Oxyfusion skincare when I'm home in Cavite. I tend to reach for fuller ranges when I'm in Cavite because I have my stash there! Here in Manila, I end up with minimal options--which is okay too! So today, I want to share with you my beauty blogger thoughts on this new skincare brand that captured the hearts of Philippines' finest.

My Nutox routine during the day includes the following: (Left to Right) Nutox Wrinkle Away Cleanser, Nutox Skin Refining Toner, Nutox Moisture Emulsion, Nutox Eye Cream.

Hello Sunshine! Getting ready for parties mean finding the perfect outfits for every occasion. One of the things that intimidate the brains out of me is the need to prepare for formal occasions! I'm a very casual and laid-back person, so when I need to be looking for a formal gown or affordable dresses, I'm lost in translation! Good thing there are great websites with hundreds of fashionable dresses to choose from like www.dresshop.com.au! Just check out this amazing piece I've found! And what's more, it's even on sale!

Are you looking for great finds from a christmas sale too? Or perhaps you want to find great choices of even inspiration for a once-in-a-lifetime event? Whichever, websites like DresShop.com.au are great because they give you the comfort of finding quality dresses without the hassle of looking through racks and racks of clothes that doesn't fit your style!

Is it your first time looking for clothes online? Check out my safe online shopping tips so you'd have a more enjoyable experience of online fashion hunting!

1. Know the occasion you're preparing for.

It's important to be ready accordingly. If you're going to a black tie event or a semi-formal event, your outfit would vary. Be sure of what type of dress you're looking for before you start your search.

2. What time is it?

Whatever the season is, help it direct your fashion choices! You wouldn't want to be caught dead in a beautiful dress in winter without a coat to keep you warm! Make sure your outfit is season appropriate so you'd feel comfortable while you look great!

3. Search by color.

Your dress should complement at least one of the following: your skin tone, your eyes, your hair, or your makeup. Of course, if applicable, it should also be according to the color theme of the party you're attending.

4. Bookmark your search.

When you find a dress you like, bookmark it immediately! Don't limit your choices because the great thing about online shopping is you get hundreds of choices with just one click! Bookmark then decide later! You can even ask your friends to help you out by saving a print screen of your top choices!

5. Read! Read! Read!

Read the shipping policies of the website you're choosing from! You don't want to order a dress online and have it arrive too late for your event. It's also important to always read the details of the item you're looking at. Check out the materials, the measurements and even the color choices youo have for each dress you bookmark. These factors should affect your decision in buying online!

How about you, do you have online shopping tips too?

Hello Sunshine! Being a beauty blogger in the Philippines means the dilemma of preaching SPF protection and actually practicing what you preach! I understand how difficult it is to find a sunblock that isn't sticky, greasy and too white over the skin. Some that are problem-free, come too expensive; while those that are affordable fail at one point. So today, I'm excited to share a sunblock that I tried, tested and loved! This one is from a favorite skincare house, Nivea.

Hello Sunshine! Last week, there was Typhoon Yolanda, pegged as the strongest cyclone to hit land this year. And my country, the Philippines, was its host. The winds were strong, and the rain was unpredictable in my area; but to those directly hit, especially in the Visayas region, it was hell. I saw videos and photos shared online and my heart aches for the victims. While I was at it, I felt so blessed to have been safe with family. Naturally, I did something book-related while hoping for better days. I fixed my book shelf and opened a new book, This is My Best.

Hello Sunshine! I confess that I think my love for lipsticks alone could have led to me starting up a beauty blog here in the Philippines? I know I share the fixation with most women--but to me, lipstick are like candy. They are sweet to own--in many colors--and are also perfect to explore in different textures! Last October I wrote for thePOC.net about the different textures of lipsticks, and if you'd like to learn more about what finish will work best with your style, you should visit my beauty article on The Pinoy Online Chronicles Beauty Section!

Hello Sunshine! I have a beauty tip to share with you, and this one has practicality all over its face. When I embarked on the journey of beauty blogging in the Philippines I knew part of what I wanted to collect were beauty books. They usually come pricey, and as much as I can, I source out my beauty references from sale sections! The best part? I end up saving more than 50% just by taking the time to search book sales! However, books on sale are not always at their best, and aesthetics is big for me so I got so excited when I discovered Cover Up, the prettiest way to take care of your books. Now, my brand new books, I already had them covered in regular plastic cover; but my book sale finds, they needed extra TLC so I used my super cute Krispy Cupcakes Cover Up! on them.

Super cute right? But did you know book lovers have more reasons to love Cover Up? Cover Up is also great for prettifying your laptops, cameras and even your favorite makeup brushes! In a way, Cover Up is such a beauty essential for me, it made being a Filipina beauty and book blogger definitely more fun!
