The things I’ve learned from the Cetaphil Experience were not only eye-opening, but inspiring. It inspired me to keep learning, to keep practicing good skincare, and to love and care for the skin I’m in — after all, it’s the only skin I’ve got.
New York City is such a vibrant, diverse and cultural city -- there's a reason why it's one of the most popular cities around the world. No doubt there's so much to see, do, eat, and experience -- a bucketlist was perfect in narrowing down what we want to achieve when we move to the Big Apple!
When it comes to traveling, my heart is always drawn back to my favorite continent: Europe.In the past 5 years, I've visited three times, and so I'd like to think I know a thing or two about getting started with planning a Eurotrip; but even so I still find myself getting overwhelmed by it all. I know a lot of you have had dreams and plans of visiting Europe one day but have no idea where to start, and so I decided to create a guide with all the basics to help kickstart your planning.
I've heard about family & friends going on cruises and having the best time, so it always tickled my curiosity of what it's actually like to sleep on a ship, with the waves rocking you back and forth, taking advantage of on-board activities or just doing absolutely nothing (my kind of relaxation), and then docking in a new city to explore for a day.
Paris. My favorite city on earth. A city known for it's beautiful Haussaman buildings, endless cafés, rich history, and I suppose the famed "snobbish" Parisians. I've been to Paris a total of three times in the last 4 years, clearly I can't get enough of this place.
My biggest issue with the summer months is dealing with the heat. I’ve never been a fan of it, I mean who is? As much as possible I try to stay indoors with the aircon on full blast, but obviously that can’t always be the case. We may not be able to control this crazy hot weather, but there are ways to combat that icky sticky feeling that inevitably comes with it.
Yes, as a freelancer, most days I work from home. In bed. In my pajamas. Under the covers. With my laptop open. Sometimes with a plate of food nearby. My bed becomes my sleep/eat/work station. It's definitely not healthy, but that's the reality of freelance life. On the other hand, I work outside at least 2-3 times a week and so I've got my typical must-haves when I venture out into the world to actually live.
I’ve got a few weeks left until I go on my 3 week vacation this December with Gab. Yep, we’re embarking on a mini-Eurotrip because we absolutely didn’t feel like the last one was enough to really enjoy our favourite cities. While planning the upcoming trip, it got me thinking about last year’s Eurotrip and how I’ve made some travel mistakes that I definitely won’t be making again.
After months of what seemed like a hiatus on my love for makeup, it has been reignited once again all thanks to a wonderful store called Sephora. After years and years of endless rumours about Sephora finally making its way to the Philippines, it finally came true early this year in the form of Sephora.ph.
My two month stay in France was more than just a cultural exchange on my end. I took it as a chance to learn about the French way of life, and that included studying how effortlessly beautiful French women are and how they achieve it, and applying the things I've learned into my lifestyle as well. Honestly, I don't remember a time I ever came across a French woman with bad skin.
One of the biggest questions girls often have in life: Where the hell did my bobby pins go? I'm the type of person who will always lose hair clips, bobby pins, earrings, hair ties, rings; basically any tiny thing smaller than my hand...
