Hello Sunshine! I've been feeling sorta troubled lately over some personal stuff and it has come to a point that some days I'd wake up and I'd be so sad I don't even want to move. It's very unlikely for me, because I'm a jolly person. I guess that's also why when I go through such a wave of emotion, I reach for that extra push--my life can't stop; I have to power through.

How to invest on yourself

Hello Sunshine! Whether you have a musician in the family or your friendship circle, one way or the other, you've probably received a musically themed gift. Small items like cufflinks that look like guitars, for example, or ties or scarves printed with musical notations are among the common musically themed trinkets that you may see around gift shops--and to great avail because such items are cute and adorable gifts for friends and family! But did you know that the same is true for movie fans? With the rise of movie merchs, it's so much easier to give away movie-themed gifts. Up the notch, and you can even design your home to the tune of a song or movie you love. Here's how.

Hello Sunshine! In the world of anti-aging treatments, one thing is certain. That thing is change. The industry is always changing and growing at a rapid rat--but that isn't really a bad thing! If you're looking for a solution to your current or developing skin problems, the more options the better! However, there's still that danger of losing yourself in a sea of options, especially at the start. So today I want to help you out with an overview of anti-aging laser treatments.

Hello Sunshine! August wasn't the best month, but I want to cap it off with my favorites so I would be forced to look at it through the good things, and not the crappy memories. If you're looking for a delectable lipstick combination, I have one that will make you look like a chocolate dream. August was also a month for re-discoveries, especially in the body oil department. Last but not the least, if you follow me on social media, you should know by now that I let go of a lot of my brand new and pre-loved makeup and brushes. So for this post, I'm going to share with you my favorite makeup brushes, and I mean favorite because these babies didn't go through the grand sale! Let's do this!

Hello Sunshine! Last Saturday, I braved the treacherous EDSA to attend the #GetGlowingWithJergens event at Gateway Mall, Cubao. OK two things, I avoid Cubao like it's the plague. I grew up in Cubao, but I also realized I've outgrown it. I hate how crowded it gets, and how hot it is there (due to lack of trees!!!) But I went anyway, all for the love of beauty! #Lavette

Hello Sunshine! If you're following me on social media (especially Snapchat, my username is kumikomae) then you already caught wind of my experience with BeautyMNL.com! BeautyMNL is an online shopping site for beauty lovers--and I must say I'm really really hooked! My first experience with them was sponsored, they approached me and gave me credits to try out the website. But since my first experience was really great, I went back a few days after my first haul. Here I'll share with you the BeautyMNL items I got.

Hello Sunshine! Do you know about the show 2 Broke Girls? Anyway, last year when I was in recovery from my operation, I devoured this series like a maniac. It was fun. I particularly love the main plot of the story. Basically it revolved around these two broke girls (no surprise there), and on how they work they way to make their cupcake business a reality.

Hello Sunshine! The Ber-months is upon us and I have to admit, I'm loving the chilly weather. Although, I'm always going to be your summer-girl, a cooler climate is always welcome! So I created a little guide on how to look awesome until the year goes bang! This list is dedicated to all you lovers of shopping catalogues as all the products I'm recommending are items you can buy through an online catalogue.

Hello Sunshine! Whenever I do my grocery shopping, I still allow myself to gravitate towards random beauty products. Usually, I'd stick to my favorites and bath staples, since the supermarket isn't really the best place to beauty shop--if you ask me. However, there would be times when I'd find myself a winner! Among many winning items I got while doing some grocery shopping, there is Bonne Milk Scrub! I don't know if you've tried this already--but if you haven't, you should. It's available in leading supermarkets, but is also almost always available in Watson's!

Hello Sunshine! So last weekend I visited my Dra. Kyla at Skin Philosophie in BGC for a much needed facial. I say much-needed because my whiteheads and blackheads have been out of control (mostly my fault because I wasn't very strict with my skin clearing regimen), and much-needed because with bad skin, I get more frequent ugly-makeup days. Anyway, I took lots of videos using Snapchat and I figured I'd share them here as well! Do follow me on Snapchat so you and I can experience life together--almost real-time! Note, all my videos were taken for mobile-viewing purposes so they're all portrait mode! #mobilefirst

Hello Sunshine! Don't you find it fascinating to see how far fashion (or even beauty) has become and changed through the years?


Personally, I think my fascination over the history of what's beautiful is the core to why I enjoy period films and TV shows. So today, I'm excited to share these "100 years of" videos to you. Enjoy!
On a different note, here are pretty cool infographics that put your modern definition of female fashion in perspective. Don't forget to share with me your thoughts in the comments below this post!
But whatever happens, don't forget that true style is timeless.
