Lipstick is the Weapon of Choice + SM Lipstick Fest

Lipstick is the Weapon of Choice +  SM Lipstick Fest

Lipstick is always my weapon of choice. A single swipe from the trusty bullet is all I needed to face the battles in life.

When things go crazy and our comfort zone is shaken, we always go for the familiar things. 

Last week, after an "eventful" day attending events (and before our day started for our journey to Zambales - more on that on a separate story), we visited the newly opened Pancake Store at Ventris North, Ayala Malls.

Gava Gives | How to Start a Crowd Funding Campaign & Raise Money from Strangers


While traveling makes me feel how small space I occupy in this world, giving makes me feel big about myself.

I oftentimes think that one need not a good job title under his/her name to make a difference in someone's life. I am fortunate to co-exist in such a giving environment - not because we have more than what we need but because I know what it feels to have nothing. I didn't grow up with everything that I need in my life.

The Avon Panty Store + Why You Should Always Wear Your Best Underwear Everyday

Avon Panty Store


The Avon Panty Store

I always wear my best undies everyday, because I wouldn't know what would happen to me at the end of the day.

 I might end up in a hospital (caught dead wearing a ratty underwear?) or (knock on wood), it might be the last underwear that I would own (it happened to me when our house burnt down a few years ago! I went home to nothing but just the clothes I was wearing ). Or maybe, you might meet your crush. The last time, I met my ultimate crush, Jay Manalo. :p  It is always good to feel sexy and confident inside. ;)

Women on the go should always bring different styles of panties for different occasions. Maybe, men in our lives wouldn't understand why we need a different bra or underwear for a certain top, skirt or dress.

Travel Bucket List | Niagara Falls (Canada Side)

Niagara Falls is where I fell in love again.

I am taking you across the globe to where Canada meets the border of United States of America. I wish I could tell you every little things and stories about my visit to Niagara Falls. But just like the best stories of one's life, mine is better shared offline. :)

The Mountain Dew Nation HQ

Mountain Dew Nation HQ event

I grew up very sheltered and I haven't really experienced playing outside with other kids. We spent most of our time at home playing Family Computer, killing mother ships and saving Mario's princess.
