Hello everyone! I just want to share some updates on what's happening with my life right now. This past few days, I was busy running errands, paying bills, and all that jazz. Hence for being MIA. And also recently, my Lola (grandmother) was admitted in the hospital, and as the nurse of the family, I had to help out and take care of her. Thank God it was nothing serious.

On the lighter note, I finally joined the AVON FAMILY! I just had my orientation a few hours ago. I was amazed when I entered the main office! It felt so homey, and accommodating. Everyone was all smiles! Well I guess with their job of recruiting and dealing with people, one has to have a pleasing personality. I don't know if I have that one. Haha! I'm so excited having to have opportunities of availing their product discounts and freebies! I've always been an AVON customer. As a student, it's very practical for me to buy my personal needs such as make-up, undergarments through AVON since I get to pay for it within a month. I can still save up for it without having to ask from my parents to pay for it. Promoting self- independence. Haha

Anyways, I will be leaving for Manila next week with my sister. I think, I wouldn't be able to update my blog then. I need to have my mini fugue with all the stress I was in the past few months! I'm so excited to reunite with my two brothers, and my cousins that I haven't seen for like two years now. By then, I'm planning to go the famous tourist spots in Manila! Exciting! :)

I guess that would be all! Have a great week ahead of you my dear readers!

yours truly,

-- written by Max Ehrmann in the 1920s --

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even to the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons;
they are vexatious to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs,
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love,
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Yesterday, me and my best friends Stacy and Nina went out for an early dinner date. Every now and then, we try to make it a point to see each other. You know what they say, the truest of friends are those who, despite distance, still manage to catch up with each other once in a while and talk as if time has not passed by.

We went to our usual place, FLAMOO! In all fairness, their food are delish! They have a lot of food to choose from. They have, obviously, grilled burgers, salads and pasta. If ever you visit Iligan City, you really must try Flamoo at the The Strip. The place is also great, most especially if you love eating in open areas. Too bad, I wasn't able to take pictures of the place.

We were busy catching up with each other's lives that I never had the chance to take decent photos of the place. Boo. But here it goes anyway!

Nacho Loco
Nachos topped with lettuce, cheese, mayonnaise and mustard. YUM!

Candid shot I took of Stacy. :)

Nina with her spaghetti.
She can't afford to eat it all without sharing the calories to us. We love each other that much :3

Flamoo Burger with Cheese.

I look so pale here. Gaah!

Stacy's going to hate me for posting this photo of her. BWAHAHAHA

HoKiYiNin loves! Yes, we have a name for our friendship. Haha
Too bad, Kit's not around to hang with us.

HoKiYiNin stands for Honey, that's me. Kit, not in the photo, Yin- for Stacy Yin, and lastly, Nina!
Love you girls! :3

In my country where the prices of gasoline, oil, and other basic needs are skyrocketing, an average Pinoy is left with a few pesos in her pocket to buy her other needs such as clothes, bags. Thank GOD for ukay ukay that anyone can get her pair of Ralph Lauren pants, Giordano blouses, and as for me, good- quality leather bags for very cheap prices!

Aren't they lovely?

BAG #1

My fave among the rest of them. I love the shape, parang lunch box lang! I got this baby for only a 120. I love how it gives a vintage touch on every outfit I pair it with. Although it's too small, I can't fit all the things I usually carry. So everytime I use this baby, I only bring what I would really need for the day. It has a long strap where I can just hang it on my shoulder or use as a body sling bag.

BAG # 2

My mom got this one from her friend who sell ukay ukay bags. I forgot how much this was, but as far as I remember it doesn't cost more than a 150 pesos. This one's very sturdy! I have this for almost 5 years now.

Lovely jewel chain used to lock the bag. Very stylish!

BAG # 3
Messenger bag

Usually, messenger bags are used by men, but it looks very stylish and cute paired with floral dresses and a pair of oxfords! Right?? My sister bought this one for me, she knows I love ukay ukay to death. She got this for only 85 pesos only.

Functional pockets to store my pens and post its. Keeping it clean and organized.

BAG # 4
Another messenger bag.

I got this for only 70 pesos. I love it. That's all I can say. haha

This one's heavier than the other one though.

That's about it! How'd you like the bags?
Do you shop for ukay ukay bags like me?:)

Have a Blessed Saturday everyone! :*

MAKE-UP LOOK: Plum Smokey Eyes

Hey everyone! This will be my first make-up tutorial post, so please bear with me on this! I was so bored the whole afternoon because of the scheduled brownout from where I live. And so I asked my nephew's Yaya Charity to model for me. I wanted to practice myself more on doing make-up on different people, since it's very easy for me to do it on myself. Obviously, I would know every single detail on my face that needs covering and enhancing.

So here's the look:

Smile! :)

She was so excited to pose for the camera! ;)

Here's what I used:


Shawill BB Cream, Maybelline Clear Smooth All-in-one


Shawill Eyeshadow Pallete, Nichido E/S palette

Nichido Eye Liner in Medium brown, Fashion21 Liquid liner, Maybelline Volume Express Mascarra


E.L.F. Studio Line Duo Blush and Bronzer, Victoria's Secret Very Sexy Mosaic Bronzer
I used the VS Bronzer to contour her nose


Ever Bilena Matte L/S in Scarlette and Ever Bilena Deluxe L/S Nude
I mixed both to achieve a warm coral shade.

Yaya was so happy, she felt like a celebrity daw! I had so much fun playing as her make-up artist! Hahaha I wanted to practice more on smokey looks since I find it difficult to achieve. It's always easier with the neutral looks, anyone can pull it off !

So, how'd you like the look on her? Nay or Yay??
Please do comment or suggest make-up tutorials that you wanted me to do for you girls! :))

Have a good night and GOD BLESS! :*

What's inside this BLACK CLUTCH?

Look what I got... 24PCs make- up brush set!

I was so excited when my friend message me saying that my order has arrived! Since it's pre-ordered in Korea, my friend "warned " me that it'll take like 1 month maximum until I get my order. Still, I said yes and ordered 2 sets, one for me and one for my sister. If you're interested to check her out, just add her FB account and just PM her that you want to browse her PRE-ORDER ITEMS. I got mine for only 850 pesos, same also with my sister's.

Hey everyone! Yes, I've been MIA for almost two weeks now.. I've been busy these past few days with my Application for Medicine, which turns out to be delayed again until next year. I don't want to elaborate on that. Depressing.

I have lots of make-up reviews lined up for you girls! That includes Revlon Photo Ready Powder and Compact, MAC Satin lipstick in Pink Nouveau, Revlon Matte lipstick in Stormy Pink! I was actually planning to do a May Haul on that, but I was just too lazy to do a post. LAZY!
During my "depression days", I did a few DIYs that I'm so excited to share. I guess me, being depressed those days turned out to be a productive two weeks after all!

I missed blogging! HAHA Hanggang dito nalang muna, watch out for my upcoming posts my dear readers! :*
