Hello Sunshine! Finding the perfect dress when you have a special occasion to attend is quite the battle if you don't know where to start your search. But that's no longer my problem as I would always go online to check out what dresses to get inspiration from, or even straight-up purchase. For this, I can recommend visiting Cheap Dress UK

Hello Sunshine! I love Burt's Bees. I love what the brand embodies, I love how effective their products are, and I love how everything about it feels natural to who I am--because I love being gentle to the earth and to myself. So... all that love resulted tot his cute little yellow eco-bag.

Hello Sunshine! Anything personalized is attractive for me simply because I'm a very expressive person. I think, the more we reflect our personalities in the things we use, wear, and own, ,the more our self-awareness becomes stronger and fuller. These days, you can personalize just about anything. You can choose to personalize your entire phone--down to your messaging app, your closet--especially if you're great at DIY, and even design your own Tic Tac! With the design your own Tic Tac campaign, you can let your creativity shine through--in a sweet way! A LOOOT of creative spirits have tried it... view their creations here.

Hello Sunshine! Just a quick note on the new kid in town (in terms of beauty boxes!) I'm talking about the Unilever Beauty Box which was released by Unilever earlier this month! It's a pretty great quality box--one that you would most likely re-use, and since it's from Unilever, you'd find the contents to be a few staples if not already your beauty favorites!

Hello Sunshine!Nearly everywhere in the world, “university towns” develop around educational institutions. It's a natural growth for a community near universities to embrace the youth residents and to build an environment fit for their needs. Think of it as miniature cities for students. It's full of life, exploration, and energy just like the students, faculty, and other demographics concerned with institutional learning.

Vista Residences, the high-rise condominium arm of the country’s biggest property developer, Vista Land, is tweaking the concept of the university town by building vertical versions for the country’s key universities, lifting “higher learning” even higher. The campaign? The Vista Residences University Series.

Hello Sunshine! Summer is upon us and that means one thing, mainit!!! But aside from the heat, the more important aspect that requires your careful thought is your efforts to achieve daily sun protection. Whether you’re going to the beach or not, sun protection is very important. Good thing there’s Daylong. Daylong advocates daily cellular sun protection as part of everyday skincare. I for one, agrees.

Hello Sunshine! I'm going through a lot of changes in my personal and professional life right now. (It's so odd to say that--but well, it's my reality). I'm both excited and scared, sometimes more excited, sometimes more scare but I feel like I'm in that moment where I'm realizing things I've long wanted to do, make of myself, and even things I didn't know I wanted but when it stood before me, felt so right and fit to how I want to live my life. Among the changes I'm juggling is moving to a different house. No, I'm not yet investing on a property, but I am pretty determined to have a change of space. I feel like I deserve it and it would help me do more things better--and consequently, do more of the things I love doing. Now, part of looking for a new place is my dreaming of a nice kitchen. Don't get me wrong, I'm not the world's best cook. I guess I can do pasta well, but I am not at that point where I can whip out sinigang at will! (Yes, sinigang ang batayan!) Anyway, since I'm visualizing, I sometimes go online and window shop for interesting items to have in the kitchen. Here are the 7 kitchen items I've rounded up.

Hello Sunshine! Earlier this week I shared with you bridesmaid dresses that I loved. Today, it's time for 7 prom dresses that steals the show! I recently saw my younger cousin's prom dress on Facebook, and felt like a super proud cousin because she looked so elegant and very beautiful in the violet number she chose. Anyway, since I didn't really get a prom--I studied in an all-girls Catholic school which didn't hold prom events--I figured every prom season, it would be fun for me to try and get into the prom preparation hype just for kicks!

Hello Sunshine! I have a confesion to make. My love for beauty is placed on steroids when I discover brands that are homegrown and naturally-made! I mean really, I get super excited when I discover new brands that offer naturally-made products--just because it combines two of my favorite things in the world: beauty stuff and environment-friendly things! So imagine my excitement when I found out about Nekkid Beauty, a Filipino home-based company established in September 2014 by beauty and skin care addict Sabs Hernandez. I met Sabs through Sample Room and her personality is so vibrant--I can only imagine her products to be as lively!

Hello Sunshine! Last February, Pond's launched their newest facial cleanser, the Pond's Pearl Cleansing Gel*. It is a breakthrough addition to the Filipina's beauty regimen as it is the first whitening facial wash in gel formulation. It promises to cleanse the skin, making it whiter and fresher, without drying it. As in makeup and other facets of the beauty industry, gel products are lighter in texture and are generally made of milder ingredients. Now, with the new Pond's gel facial cleanser, Pinays can also enjoy their favorite gel trend while washing their face.

Hello Sunshine! I've been reading a lot about bridal makeup since Heart Evangelista's wedding (for good reason, because she looked so beautiful at her wedding). Because of that, I did a little browsing for bridesmaid dresses online. To my defense, it's an effort that wouldn't go to waste because I'm actually considering editing one of my favorite dresses. I want to refresh its neckline and I am in dire need of inspiration online--I visited BridalUp website to look for a cheap bridesmaid dress under 100 at bridalup. I came up with a list of unique bridesmaid dresses you'd probably love too. They are all bridesmaid dresses under 100!

Hello Sunshine! Do you ever go through days make-up free only to realize that gasp, you have a special evening to prepare for? I go through days like that. When I get so busy at work, I would forget that I have a beauty event at night and I'd be so frantic because I wouldn't look worthy to be called a "beauty blogger" after a whole day of hustlin'! Now you might be thinking, how hard is it to beauty up, right? Well, for me it's a bit complicated. See... I don't feel comfortable applying makeup on a dirty face. I always prefer applying makeup on a clean canvass--best because this way I know my application would be even and would sit perfectly on my skin. So whenever this type of forgot-my-schedule mishap happens, I'd use my new-found favorite skincare item, the Nivea Facial Wipes.

Hello Sunshine! I missed posting about the special edition January 2015 BDJ Box* that I got last January (and I only realized now that this has been in my drafts for weeks!!!). But that doesn't stop me from sharing with you the contents of the unique and pretty cute kawaii curated beauty box! It was in a larger than usual box, and was loaded with full-sized products from Bifesta, Lucido-L, Pixy, Sunkiller and more!
