Hello everyone! How are you all doing? :) I’ve been so concerned about my hair lately and have been browsing some inspirations for my hair on instagram and pinterest. I know my hair needs to be pampered because I haven’t done it for so long already so I decided to have a hair cleansing treatment from a salon I saw from instagram. I also thought of having a haircut but I only had it trimmed since I don’t want to make a drastic change on my hair. I noticed that after my hair treatment my hair became less dry and shiny. The hairstylist suggested me to try a new hair color and it’s one thing that I haven’t done in my entire life. I don’t know why I’m so afraid of changing my black hair into something new. Maybe it’s because I’m afraid of introducing harsh chemicals on my it.

Speaking of hair color and hair styles, I’ve been introduced to an online store recently that specializes human hair wigs. I knew my wish has been heard of wanting to have a different look and color when I started to browse Wiggins Hair’s website. This site left me so much inspiration and hope in transforming and bringing my hair and look into a different level. When it comes to having a new hairstyle I know I can rely on their human hair extensions. Whether I want my hair to look permed or straight I can do it both conveniently. Imagine how easy it is to just put on and clip it in your hair and say hello to a new instant look after! If I want to see myself having a different color I can rely on their ombre hair weave. They have a lot of colors to choose from! I’ve always wanted to see my hair in a lighter color and it’s only a few clicks away without sacrificing the health of my new hair with chemicals.

Aside from that, Wiggins Hair is also a leading wholesale online hair extensions shop. I would introduce their bundle deals with frontal and I think it’s one of their best buys since it’s the complete package that everyone would love!

When I was in High school I used to think of how life would be in my twenties- what career path and life will I have in college, who will be my new set of friends, what places will I be able to travel, who will be my boyfriend, what will be my accomplishments and the like. I was so excited for my future back then that I forgot to think of the problems or mishaps that I may encounter during those years. 11 years go I was so passionate of being a doctor that whoever asks me what I want to be I would proudly say "I want to be a doctor preferably a nephrologist". Fast forward to 4 years I became one of those Dentistry students in LPU and 7 years later, I'm still here in my college finishing my requirements for graduation. 5 years ago I used to say that I would never want a boyfriend in my life while I'm still studying but 3 years after, I had the biggest plot twist in my life and never knew I would have a boyfriend that same year haha! All my life I was an introvert and never thought I would came out of my shell when I reached my college years. I was able to cope up with the culture shock that College life slapped me and embraced the changes and challenges that it threw me. Never did I imagined that I would step up that stage and walk like a queen for a pageant nor talk to a lot of strangers that eventually turned out as friends.  
What I'm trying to say is that all of the plans that I made before didn't turned out even close to all the experiences I had now but I honestly wouldn't trade all of those for anything else. As a new chapter is here to come I want to share my 22 realizations with all of you before I turn 23 in a few days. :) 
1. It's okay to be late. All great things take time. 
2. Never underestimate the power of prayer. When you think you've done enough but still feels afraid and scared, pray. When you want to ask from God something you've always wanted to have, pray for it. It works! :)
3. Trust, honesty & thoughtfulness are the keys to make every relationship work. Do not forget those three! :)
4. Hard work will really bring you far.
5. Asking for help doesn't make you stupid. You never know what that one person can do to help and change your life .
6. Be healthy. Eat nutritious foods and have that morning exercise done. Do not let your body suffer in the long run.
7. Explore as much as you can. Travel while your legs can still manage to walk and join in tours.Travel while you can still tolerate plane rides. Travel while you're family is still complete. Travel while you still can and you're young! :)
8. Do not expect too much because life just works as it is. Remember the things that I mentioned earlier, those are living proofs that not all plans and expectations come to reality. Just go with the flow, enjoy where you are now and you will eventually be led in making the best decisions of your life.
9. Celebrate the little successes in life. I usually do this everytime I finish cases in school. It's either I'll have my lashes permed or buy that "one item" I've always been wanting to have.
10. Give compliments whenever you feel like to. It boosts other people's self esteem. Don't you just like making other people happy?
11. Invest in yourself. Self-development will never be a negative thing. Learn as much as you can.
12. Love your grandparents as much as you love your parents. My lola has been constantly visiting us recently and I realized how much joy she brings to our family. She's old and she's very sensitive. She experiences different physical pain and she needs attention and care. Always ask her how she is, how she's doing, and make her feel that she's loved.
13. Surround yourself with people from different walks of life. Be open to learn a lot of things from them.
14. Social media can be very toxic at times. This is probably the first cause of depression of most teenagers nowadays. Social media is always focused on showing all the good things and successes that other people have. You will feel, at some point, that you're left out. Here's the tip: Try to challenge yourself to delete those apps for a week and focus on your craft. You will eventually feel that you don't care about social media as much as you do before and realize that you have your own life to embrace and  love. :)
15. Save while you're still young and invest on something that you'll be thankful for in the future. :) 
16. Start choosing a partner you can see a future with. It's not even early to think about this because if you're my age, I tell you, we're not young anymore. We don't want to settle with someone we know we will only end breaking up with in our mid twenties or late twenties. Choose a person who can adjust and cope up with your attitude and would always try to understand you to avoid arguments. Choose a guy who loves your family and your family loves. And lastly, choose a guy who is working hard to fulfill the vision he has for the both of you.
17. Always tell your mom how thankful you are for her. Learn to appreciate everything she does. Sometimes, your "thank you" is the only thing she needs to hear after a long tiring day in work.
18. Always keep your feet on the ground.
19. Supporting another's success won't even lessen yours. Support your friends and family. Remember, you were once in their feet and it feels so damn good when you feel that someone's happy for your successes.
20. Seat sales are not always a good idea. This is very tempting and you tend to spend more than you never thought you would. This will only be the best choice if you're scheduled to travel or have any plans of travelling.
21. Before starting an argument, think if it's worth the stress and wrinkles!
22. Lastly, praying with the family gives me a happy and contented heart. We usually do this every night and it feels fulfilling to say a prayer together as a family.

Hello everyone! How are you all doing? :) I’ve been attending a few events lately and if you know me well or you’re a reader of my blog or a follower from instagram, you know how much I love prepping for such occasions. I know I’ve been quite gaining weight the past months and it’s definitely stress that I have to blame. Speaking of stress eating and weight gaining I’ve been feeling a little bit conscious of my body built and shape recently. It’s not that I’m ashamed of it but I lose self confidence because of it. Good thing I have my weapon with me whenever I feel like I want to look good in the outfits I wear. I often times use shapewear bodysuit. I didn’t know I’d feel comfortable and confident in it. I feel like I instantly gained that perfect body with well defined curves and I mostly feel satisfied after I see my outfit pictures.

I thought of sharing with you a brand that showcases these kind of shapewear items to help a lot of women especially the plump ones in boosting out their self confidence and self- esteem. Loverbeauty is what I’m talking about. I’m really moved by their words after knowing what their mission and goal are all about. They were created by purpose- a purpose that helps women overcome their image body issues, raise self-esteem and be their best selves. Wearing shape wears doesn’t mean being ashamed of the body that you have but instead enhancing the beauty that most people cannot see.

 
This website offers a lot of selection for all women’s shapes. They do have plus size waist trainer for plump women who wants to flaunt their curves and figures. They also have corsets, shaping shorts and panties down to butt lifters that you may be needing just in case you want to build that extra confidence in your everyday life.

They’re running a promo now and if you want to score affordable finds you may visit their website for more details and product information. :)

Always remember that you’re beautiful in whatever purpose and perspective you have. Chin up, girl!

I've never imagined making a post like this on my blog only because I consider myself as one of the most positive person I know on earth. But, as you all don't know I also encounter so many stressful things in home and school and sometimes I become the most negative person you don't want to see. But apart from all of those I still keep my head high and manage to face and overcome the stresses in my life. Here are some of the things that I do that may hopefully serve as a guide and help for you to overcome your own stresses in life as well.:)
#1. Do not overthink and instead learn to trust the process. I'm good at overthinking and it's one thing I hate the most about myself. My boyfriend told me that everytime I overthink I add the stress and burden that I'm currently experiencing. I slowly learned to just trust the process, continue to do my best and lastly, silently wish and pray that everything will be alright. 
#2. Rest, relax and give yourself a break. I always tend to work non stop and force myself to my limit everytime I am in school. I know there's nothing wrong with that except when I forgot to consider my health condition. But, being tired is not the really the reason why I became sick, it's something confidential that I don't want to discuss here anymore. Anyway, after every case closed or requirement done I always promise to treat and give myself a reward like buy something online, or watch a movie or simply buy a cake. I'm happy that as of now all my goals for summer clinic has been accomplished. :) 
#3. Do anything and everything that makes you comfortable and happy. When I'm stressed I tend to over eat. Look at how fat I am now! Hahaha! Overstressed lang?? Joke! I just make it an excuse but I really am "matakaw". When I'm stressed I blog. :) You can see from my previous posts on how full of emotions they were. When I'm stressed, I also love looking and searching for random stuffs like skincare products, phone cases and promo travel deals and guess what?? I end up Purchasing something because it simply makes me happy. Mahirap ako ma stress. Nagagastusan ako huhu 
#4. Think of all the bigger things that you've once dreamt of and make it your inspiration. The reason why I've never experienced stress to the fullest is because I always have in mind my dreams in the future. Ayoko lang lamunin ng stress kase hindi ako makapag trabaho ng ayos at hindi ko magawa ng ayos ang mga dapat kong magawa. I always think of my mom and my dreams for her. Even if I feel tired and hopeless there's still a light of motivation that keeps me going and that is a bright future with my mom and future family. :)
#5. Pray. This is one thing you should never forget. When you're stressed and when feel lost, when you're in pain and feeling hopeless, talk to Him, ask for His help and guidance and He will surely answer your prayers with abundant blessings. Don't forget to thank Him as well for all the strength and courage and for his overflowing love that kept you going. 
*Outfit: Did you noticed that the dress that I'm wearing from SHEIN was big for me and had it only safety pinned on the back part? Maybe not haha but I still need to have it altered. I really love the color of this dress plus the fabric is superb especially on the skirt part. You can avail this same dress by clicking on this or you may head to to their website to see more fashionable dresses and clothes.

Hello everyone! Today's post is something different because this is my first time to share with all of you my skincare products! I'm no beauty guru and I don't have a perfect skin (in fact, my face is almost always red and my cheeks has a lot of pimple marks and blemishes huhu) that's why I'm looking for the best kind of products that will work perfectly on my skin. I have a combination type of skin (Oily on the cheeks and dry on the nose) and I'm quite having a hard time looking for products that will work best on me. When I was in Korea I was overwhelmed with the amount of beauty boutiques in every corner of every street I see. I'm not exaggerating though. Koreans are very concerned with their skin particularly their faces and everytime I see them I get a little bit insecure of the marks on my face. I've been using some products and I have my own skin care routine too but I believe that I need to level up those and change everything since I don't see any changes from using it. I became concerned with my face and did some research when I was in Korea. I was able to score some Korean products like the Some By Mi 30-Day Miracle toner which I've been using for 2 months already. I don't use any toner before but after I've been so interested and watched a lot of vlogs in youtube, I realized how important a toner is in one's everyday routine. I can testify to that because the toner that I'm using works best on me. I'm definitely going to repurchase it (even if it's quite expensive).
After I went back to Korea and brought home a toner and a lot of face masks (they were so cheap in Korea!!!) I realized that I want to try more of the K-beauty products that I've been only seeing from the internet. My curiosity led me to Althea Korea. This is not a promotional post but I want to share with you my experience in shopping in Althea. I actually shopped from 2 online shops, Althea and BeautyMNL. From BeautyMNL, I bought the famous Laneige lip sleeping mask only because it's cheaper there and they have small packaged samples for less while I bought most of my new set of skincare products from Althea. When I bought before from Althea, they offer 15% discount for the first time buyers and I took advantage of that. I also took advantage the free shipping for Php 999+ above hence the title. Hahaha! Let me tell you my recent purchases from Althea.
Here's how the packaging looks. By the way, my package arrived in good condition but I quite got bored waiting because it took 3 weeks before it was delivered. Tagal :( Tip: If you're planning to purchase from them be sure to do it 1 month before your current products were gone. Althea is based in Korea and it took quite some time to deliver. I mean it took longer in the processing hub in the Philippines. 
#1. The Faceshop Jeju Aloe Ice (Php 240) - I've been a user of Aloe Vera gel from The Faceshop for almost a year and I apply it after I wash my face with facial cleanser. I noticed that this aloe vera gel doesn't do anything to my face and sometimes still cause breakouts and redness. Maybe it just doesn't work for my skin type. I use it instead for sunburns and for hair growth and I'm glad I changed its purpose instead of as moisturiser. Instead of buying the same Aloe Vera gel I switched to Jeju Aloe Ice. I've read and watched a lot of good reviews about it especially when it's put on the fridge before use. I haven't tried it yet but maybe next week I'm gonna give it a try and update this post once again. :)
#2. Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam (Php 340) Before I use this facial cleanser from innisfree I've been using the Rice Water Bright facial cleanser from The Faceshop. I can atest on how smooth and fresh looking my face looks like after every application I do with it. But because I want an upgrade and I realized already what's my main concern about my face I switched on to this Jeju Volcanic Pore cleanser foam from Innisfree. This product has actually the most number of good reviews and one of the best seller from Althea. I'm captivated by its product description and realized that it's what I was really looking for for the longest time. Ho and Behold, it lived up my expectations! This is so far the best and most effective product that I purchased from Althea. It tighten my face after every wash and makes my face softer. I also noticed that my blemishes and scars lightened and lastly, I don't experience severe breakouts just like what I had experienced during the past months. I highly recommend this product and would repurchase it. 
#3. The Faceshop eyebrow pencil (Php 150)- This is actually a repurchase already. This is my go to "pang kilay" and I've been using it since January this year. I love the ease of application and it's also a plus that this product is very cheap. I have it in shade dark brown btw.
#4. THE SAEM tip concealer (Php 200)- This is another favorite purchase from Althea. Before I have this I'm using the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in shade sand. I'm using it for the reason that it's the only concealer that I know and have tried in the market. It's actually my first concealer to try and I've been using it for a year already. Because I told myself that I wanted to step up and try other products for my face I decided to order this The Saem tip concealer. When I tried it I thought it was just like my concealer before but noooo, it's totally different. I noticed that it has a better coverage and it lightens pimple marks. Another thing is that I also noticed that this concealer has smooth finish and it doesn't look "cakey" unlike my previous one. This product is highly recommended and I'm going to purchase it again. :)
#5. Natural Pure Cotton Pads (Php 140)- This is a new discovery for me. (I know a lot of you use this already! Hahaha sobrang late bloomer lang!) I learned it from two of my friends while we were in Korea. I was asking my room mate to give me some cotton balls one night but she gave me cotton pads. She told me it's better to use it since most makeup gurus in youtube use it. I started to look for one in Althea and went for the most reviewed cotton pads. These cotton pads are definitely better than using cotton balls! They hold the liquids that I apply on my face way better thus making no products wasted. I'll surely repurchase this soon.
#6. Innisfree Green Tea Balancing Lotion (Php 80)- I actually haven't tried this item yet because I don't know when it is applied in my skincare routine. Honestly speaking, I only get to buy this one because I still have 80 pesos left to make my purchase Php 1000. Hahaha! Anyway, I'd definitely try this product and update this blog for my honest review. :)

You can track your parcel here after shopping! There you have it! I can't wait for my next purchases from Althea Korea! :)

Hey guys! How are you all? I'm finally discharged from the hospital last Tuesday and have been keeping up with all the responsibilities that was left to me. It seems that there are a lot of things need to be done and I'm finally welcoming and embracing it again with open arms. 


Anyway, one of my favorite eyewear brand is introducing a new set of categories from their website. Jupitoo has a lot more to offer and their team has came up with a new set of categories on their shop namely: sports glasses (which will come in prescription glasses, sunglasses and even goggles! Can you believe that? You can already see the beauty under the sea while wearing a stylish and equally protective equipment that doesn't feel one!), kids glasses- which I'm sure is very relevant nowadays. A lot of kids are diagnosed with poor eyesight because of being exposed too long in gadgets like tablets and phones. Most doctors prescribe wearing eyeglasses as early as possible to correct their eyesight.) and classic glasses (Yes, i'm pertaining to those classic cat eye and round timeless frames that will never go out of style!). I visited the following links and looks like they're still stocking up and preparing everything for their clients. But apart from it you may continuously visit their website (www.jupitoo.com) to constantly view what's new from those categories or you may stay updated in this post! :)


You may also view their blog so you can get some ideas with regards in choosing the glasses and frames that suits you or the newest sunglasses trends that will still come up this 2019 and lot more! :) 

Stay tuned for more blog updates! Don't forget to visit their website for web promotions and discounts! Thanks for reading! :)

Hello everyone! It's funny how things have been so playful lately. First week of July- This is the most stressful week for me. It was the time I felt so down because there were a lot of mishaps that ruined my plans for my summer clinic. I have been ditched by one of my most important patient (revalida with rct case) that I'm dealing with since last semester. Little did I know that God is going to bless and give me with another one who's better and braver (but without rct case huhu help me find one). Second week- I was brought to the ER and was diagnosed of hypokalemia. I was so weak during that time that I cannot move my legs. I was experiencing a muscle paralysis. I'm still continuing my medications and I'm really hoping that I'll get better na because just last Sunday, I was rushed to the ER again. I'm currently writing this blog post in my hospital room because I've got nothing to do but rest and gain back my energy for tomorrow's responsibilities in school (Sana makauwi nako). I've been here for 3 days and 2 nights already but I'm doing better now and wishing that I can go home this afternoon. Last week was also by far the most productive week for me. I did my last resto requirement, I've started with my revalida rehab, I'm done with my perio surgery defense, finally half way of my posterior fpd requirement, and got an odontec walk-in patient who's very willing and cooperative! I still have some more requirements left and I really hope that I'll be able to finish everything this coming semester. I'm also grateful for having good mentors whom I consider my superheroes, my helpful friends who are my happy pills, and my supportive family who has been my inspiration and motivation to keep going. I have realized that there are still a lot of people who believe in my capabilities and they were the ones who brought out the best in me. I owe you a lot! Thank you for guiding me and teaching me a lot of things that I was once afraid to do. :)
Outfit. My outfit in this look is inspired by one of my favorite local bloggers, Verniece Enciso. I opted to wear white to our recent beach trip few weeks ago and thought of wearing this Dropship dress from one of my dress collection. If you remember from a blog post that I made last year, I have this dress also in color red. Now I have it in white and is thinking of getting it in blue and yellow. I just love the style of this dress. It's very feminine, youthful and chic. It can be dressed from formal (heels and clutch bag) down to casual (body bag and sandals) just like what I did for this look. I would also love to complement my newest rattan bag from SHEIN. I know everyone's raving about how nice it is and yup, it looks really cute and chic. It's perfect for my other upcoming beach trips next month! I'm also thinking of getting it in other designs. What do you think? :)

I badly want to graduate already. I badly want to practice my career already. I badly want to help my mom already. I need to take away my fears, my what ifs, my buts and whys and instead learn the art of believing in my capabilities and trusting the process. I know I'm scared and worried a lot of times but deep down I know that I can because God is always with me. :)
