Hello Sunshine! Let me introduce you to the newest DKNY fragrance that is set to capture your heart--maybe make it skip a New York minute while she's at it. Here's MYNY fragrance by DKNY. Unique. Vibgrant. Magentic. That's the scent of New York, captured by DKNY MYNY.

I got to experience first dibs of the DKNY MYNY scent last Friday, and my mind is buzzing with magnetic dreams!

New York: the city we love, the city whose heart beats faster and louder than any other. Each spritz of DKNY MY NY Eau de Parfum celebrates the energy of New York and the individuals that live it, dream of it, and yearn for it. It is a fragrance inspired by the collective for the individual.

Hello Sunshine! Being a beauty blogger in the Philippines means combating two major skin concerns, shared by most Asian women: oily skin and large pores. Now, it really hurts to admit this, but I've got both. Oh yes.

Having oily skin and large pores can be very frustrating (whether you're a beauty blogger or not) because it can get in the way with your ganda-ra moves. So imagine my excitement when I received my Olay Total Effects 7 skincare set* which includes the Olay Intensive Moisture Face and Body Wash, Olay CC Cream with Sunscreen, and Olay Facial Toner.

These days, the power (and freedom) to transform yourself into achieving your most beautiful version is just a wash away, thanks to innovative products such as that of Olay Total Effects 7.

Hello Sunshine! August was a heatwave (figuratively)! I went through twice as much products than the photo below. Unfortunately, I lost my empties halfway through the month due to carelessness, so I only have below eight items to share for this month's empties post. Even so, I still feel proud over this achievement.

Does anyone else here feel oddly proud when they finish a beauty product: skincare, makeup, haircare alike? Tell me about it through the comments.

Hello Sunshine! Isn't amazing that this time around, women are no longer on display as damsels in distress, rather, women are set up to be their own heroines--while keeping their princess on? It's true. I realized it more when I attended the launch of Heroine Make in the Philippines.

Heroines aren’t born: they’re made. Behind every beautiful heroine is a makeup collection that promises to make you look beautiful and keep you that way, no matter what dramatic adventures life throws your way!

Hello Sunshine! Here's a beauty suggestion: don't just gloss over your lips, anti-age them! If you want to get younger, sexier, and instantly plumped lips, I discovered a scientifically formulated anti-aging lip therapy for long-term anti-aging, volumizing, moisturizing, and healing benefits. I for one suffer from perpetually dry and cracked lips, so imagine my delight when I discovered Infracyte Luscious Lips*!
Infracyte Luscious Lips Review

Powered by patented peptides and dehydrated marine collagen; vitamin C, E, K; plant extracts and super fruit berries; organic moisturizing oils; and hyaluronic acid, Infracyte Luscious Lips Anti-Aging Lip Treatment is more than just a gloss. It's skincare for the lips!

Hello Sunshine! Last August I got to attend a Google Brandworks workshop at Google Singapore office. Talk about achievement unlocked! The Google Singapore office truly lived up to my expectations of a 'Silicon Valley' office. Every square mile was engaging and innovative. Double achievement unlocked when I got to brainstorm on the sleep pods--I didn't sleep OK, I really brainstormed! Here's a group photo after Google Brandworks! Most of us tried to do the elephant post from the initial group activity we played.

Hello Sunshine! Let's talk about your down under, that middle earth, the netherlands, and the landing strip, what-have-you. Because what I have to tell you will change the way you keep your woman smelling like a man (haha, sexist, I know!).

Did you know that trimming and shaving the bikini area help reduce unwanted odor? That’s why I would recommend you practice proper grooming of your secret garden. 

For this, I’d recommend trying out Vzone by PH Care*, a line of intimate grooming essentials specifically designed for the delicate bikini area neat and odor-free!

Keep your Vzone a sweet zone!

Hello Sunshine! When was the last time you felt most free in your own skin? How did it feel?
Physiogel #FreeInMySkin

When it comes to skincare, I always gravitate towards products that are suitable for the most sensitive skin--even if I don't necessarily have sensitive skin. I prefer using the most gentle choices for my all over body care because I think having beautiful skin is largely about responsible choices--on what you eat and on what you slather on your skin every day.

Hello Sunshine! When Herbalife, a leading global nutrition company, reached out to me to launch its newest skincare line in the Philippines, I was two things: stoked and honored. After blogging for over 4 years now, and having worked and partnered with numerous brands, both local and international names, I’m still the same old girl from when I started when I’m approached by opportunities to be part of the “bigger” picture. Oh boy, was launching Herbalife Skin in the Philippines a pretty big picture; something I was also fortunate to have “painted” for myself.
Herbalife SKIN review

To give you a glimpse of my experience of Herbalife Skin, I have listed my eureka moments upon my almost 2-month usage of Herbalife Skin products. Again, thank you to Herbalife Philippines for inviting me to launch Herbalife Skin with you. Now enough of my sentimental talk, and let’s get on with my Herbalife Skin review!

Hello Sunshine! Everybody's been through something difficult, big or small, and that's perfectly fine. Just a few days ago, I caught movie Raising Helen on HBO and I was stunned by the part where the mom's letter was read... she said something like, Helen is not the most perfect person and she's got some serious tendencies to fail but she also has a great way of graceful comebacks. And that's what's important. How people rise up after every--any--fall.

Anyway, today I have another comeback I mind to share. Maybe for some, this comeback is a nostalgic one, for some, a new acquaintance; nonetheless I think it's notable to share that this comeback is for keeps: Dial skincare*.

Hello Sunshine! It's a buzzing friday evening outside my window. Well, I'm not home, I'm actually typing away here at Blenz Dela Costa as I stay in my comfort zone and not even dare the friday traffic! No no no no So while I plan my weekend--pretty packed--I unearth some Etude House products that I have lined up. I received these items few weeks back but didn't get to go around trying them out because I'm on a strict skincare regimen right now--and I can't switch up just yet.

However, I'll share them nonetheless to get your input on which I should try first. Consider this a haul, although not really. I got these items from my Etude House Royal family! Thank you!
