Hello Sunshine! What are your upcoming summer travels this year? For me, I had the super fun Music Festival held in Crystal Beach, Zambales for April. Next, I'll be visiting Batangas this Holy Week, going home to Cavite (maybe roam around some old churches too), then head over to Dagupan to join the festivities of the Dagupan Festival in Pangasinan (YUM! Milk Fish!)

For all these travel plans, I have my staple quirky summer essentials in one simple pouch. I find it easiest to keep my travel essentials in one pouch so it's always ready to go places with me in one grab! If you love to travel and see places yourself, I would recommend keeping your travel essentials in one pouch too! This helps packing up easier too so you don't have to worry about forgetting your toiletries and other personal stuff when you have spur-of-the-moment trips! Need tips?

Hello Sunshine! I didn't dream to be a beauty blogger like how I daresay, I lot of new beauty bloggers in the Philippines and internationally start with. I just really wanted to write and talk about things that excite me--and beauty stuff definitely tops that list.But I did have the tell-tale signs of a beauty blogger in the making.

Hello Sunshine! I have a confession to make. I have had my share of fake items. Especially back in highschool, I've tried pseudo havaianas slippers (hawaianas!!!) and other make believe replicas of wallets and bags. I didn't know better. I was an uninformed consumer who only cared about saving on cost. Little did I know that the fake items industry is a dark forest of bad business principles and practices.
Lesson learned! Stay innocent, but smart!

So today I will share with you by far the worst fake items experience I've tried. And hopefully, by the end of this post you'd understand how fake items actually rob you of your hard-earned money rather than help you get savings.

I saw Fake Geishas and thought No! Fake Skincare is not for me.

Hello Sunshine! I've been very busy lately, and regret to say that I've been missing out on my Tuesday Thursday blog schedule! Instead, I blog when I can- -sometimes even on my phone (which is of course super awesome because who would've thought it was that possible)!

So today, allow me to share with you 3 tips to keeping your sanity despite a busy schedule. Hope these tips help you out because they surely keep me on tip-top ticking shape.

1. Bring your essentials, and some extras.

This is my new bag. It's from a brand called Paper Thinks. It's a large-sized shopping bag made of reconstructed leather and it's roomy enough to be an everyday type of bag. In it, I always have a mirror, pen and paper, hand sanitizer, dental floss, lip balm,  phone charger, wet wipes, keys.

I don't know about you but I feel more comfortable with big bags. I like make sure I have my essentials and a few random emergency items with me, anywhere I go. Of course, I try to keep things as manageable as possible, but on any given day, I'm the girl with the big bag! Fortunately, I discovered this Paper Thinks shopping bag at Rustans Makati. It made preparing my bag easier, ever since.

So today, for the purpose of giving reference I will share with you how to mix your bleaching cream with peroxide--this applies to almost any color cream that needs to be mixed with peroxide.

Hello Sunshine! Last Saturday I was invited to an exclusive launching of Shiseido Spring Summer 2014 collection. It was held at the crisp clean Picasso residences in Makati, and was attended by a select number of beauty bloggers only. Super exciting because the event was graced by Ishibashi Momoko of Shiseido Japan. She taught us the proper (quite long, graceful, calculated and super systematic) way of removing makeup and applying skincare. It was very interesting to see how the Japanese do it because frankly, I don't know if I can keep up with their approach to skincare due to the time it consumes; nonetheless, if you want to truly de-stress and prevent skin sagging, then it's definitely the skincare to subscribe to!

Hello Sunshine! I'm back to black!!! Well, more Darkest Brown hair color that is.

 For the past year and so months I've worn lighter colors; from blondes to eccentric greens and blues! Now, thanks to my beloved January-February BDJ Box, I'm back to being a brunette (like Britney Spears!!)

What do you think?

I think Ramon Bautista likes it! :)
