Hello Sunshine! Few days ago, I finished perhaps 80% of my Christmas shopping done. So proud of myself. Now, to give myself a break, I'm doing some online shopping. First and foremost, I'm browsing Zalora because they have really cute flats that I want to try out. On top of that, Zalora also has a wide range of body wash, scrubs and exfoliants to choose from--so hellooooo I am a go-go-go!

Treat. Yo. Self.

Hello Sunshine! I had a really bad day today. First, I had to go see the doctor for a skin concern--which turned out to possibly be something serious eek. Then, the pharmacy had a mishap in giving me my medicine--they didn't issue it! Then, my coffee was made wrongly ugh. But enough with the bad vibes. I want to surround myself with something good today. So instead of sulking on my chair, I'm looking for Flowers Lace Border Embroidery Mulberry Silk Lady Bras online.

Hello Sunshine! While some people call it "vanilla" or boring, I call nude gowns very chic and effortlessly sexy. When there's a major Hollywood event, I always look forward to seeing who would wear nude shades of dresses because it's just a very sexy way of flaunting skin without showing much.

Hello Sunshine! In the Philippines, when the -ber months strike, you can easily expect hearing Christmas songs from any possible corner. We just love Christmas, and the cheer begins quite early for us. However, it's more notable to mention how the holiday feels peak after the November holidays. When we finish with our halloween events, it's most inevitable to say oh wow, Christmas really is here, so here.

There are a few interesting ways to "feel" the Christmas spirit when you're in the Philippines. I listed my favorite "signs" and I'd love to know if you agree with me.

Hello Sunshine! This week has all been about fashion for me. I have an upcoming fashion event that I'm organizing for AyosDito.ph, and it's been quite a ride. Among the many things that got me to thinking are men's contribution to fashion--how at times, as if by instinct, when you say fashion, people would automatically think it's a women's world. However, truth is, fashionable men are out there!

Hello Sunshine! I was pretty quiet about it, but last month was a life-changer for me. It was a month where I decided to better care for myself, and to give the things that I want some room in my life. Cause you know ladies, as I mature (not just older, but hopefully wiser), I realize that life is not just about meeting the needs. It's also about turning the wants into reality.
Oh, this is HyunA of 4MINUTE. She is known best as the leading lady in the music video of global phenomenon Gangnam Style. I also think, she's the perfect new muse for Tony Moly!

Hello Sunshine! Whenever I think of sleepwear, I can’t help but recall the sexy but sweet sleepwear that I choose from when playing Sims—yes, SIMS! I love playing Sims, and whenever my Sim is back from work, I let it sleep (we all need to rest after a long day at work); then like clockwork, when my Sim would wake up, I’d just let it do stuff at home in her sleepwear. I love Sims sleepwear, especially the silk nightwear. I think they’re very sexy – but as I’ve mentioned, sweet! Read more

Hello Sunshine! Thinking of letting your inner vamp come out this month? Then check out this not-really-black nail polish that I tried on few days ago. It's nice because of its subtle stellar details. My only problem with this is its in-packaging applicator brush. It was like a mop! Otherwise, formulation and pigment is great! Anyhoo, here's Spoiled nail polish in The Parking Meteor is Expired.

Hello Sunshine! I was going through my nail polish collection when I saw an unopened SanSan nail polish. Do you ever experience that too? Find an item you bought but completely forgot about? Well, that happens to me a lot mostly because I am still sometimes struggling how to manage the products I buy and the products I receive as a beauty blogger. Anyway, I decided to give the polish a shot and I was thrilled because SanSan Ruby Red can quite possibly be the poster child of cherry red nail polish! Check it out:

Hello Sunshine! Praning with aging skin? I am too! OMG the magic words in skincare (to get my attention) are either "organic/all-natural" or "anti-aging"! I always think preventing skin aging is always the better route, than reversing wrinkles, etc. So today, I'm super psyched to share this new face essence that I've been using--and wow it's a game changer! It's Nu Skin ageLOC Tru Face Essence Ultra*!

Hello Sunshine! Do you know about The Secret? It’s that uhm concept where you visualize things or events you want to achieve, and claim it, and allow the Universe to conspire and give you exactly what you’ve claimed? Well, I’ve long believed in that mindset. So a few days ago, I started visualizing travelling to Taiwan. I’ve always wanted to visit Taiwan. I think it’s a pretty cool destination.

Hello Sunshine! Whenever I experience a great online shopping deal, I take it to my blog or social media to share about my finds. There's just something really rad about sharing an awesome online shopping experience. Maybe it's because despite the proliferate world wide web, it's still possible to meet someone who hasn't even tried online shopping yet. So today, I figured I'd share my four online shopping tips to help newbies give online shopping a try--as well as veteran online shoppers, that they continue getting the best deals online!

Hello Sunshine! Hands down, my all time favorite nail polish shade is soft purple. I love how this pastel color matches my skintone and personality so much, it's only natural to see purple nails on my finger tips! This time around, I gave it a little hurrah by topping my purple polish with a multi-colored confetti glitter from Forever 21! I also used a holo glitter on top of the confetti thingy. I used a clear holo from Tony Moly.

BTW, the purple polish I used here is a rediscovered number from my collection. This one's from Essence, it's in the shade A Lovely Secret.

Hello Sunshine! When it comes to my go-to scent for pampering, lavender is on top of the list. Lavender is a very calming scent to use for massage oils, body showers, and even for scented candles. It's a sure-fire way of relaxing the senses for a sound sleep. So today I'm very excited to share a lavender body care* range that I got from my SM Beauty family. Frankly, I've seen this set around but never bothered to try just yet--I thought it was just one of those cute but not awesome products. I was wrong... Oh my, I was so wrong.

Hello Sunshine! A good night's sleep is a non-negotiable item if you want to stay looking pretty with your healthy and glowing skin.

Hello Sunshine! Almost a decade ago (OMG) when I stepped into the exciting world of college life, Palmolive Naturals Shampoo and Conditioner (PINK) was my ultimate must-have. Well, it's a shuffle between the pink variant and the violet one. Oh, and yes. Before I became a Filipina beauty blogger, that's how I referred to my hair care: by packaging color! LOL

Fast forward to today, I'm so thrilled to say that the years didn't change so much out of my hair care routine. You know how it's a hint of sad when we outgrow things (and people) we once loved? Well, for this girl, my love for Palmolive Naturals Shampoo and Conditioner remains requited!
