MAKEUP TRANSFORMATION: FROM DULL TO SOFT GLAM MAKEUP (PHILIPPINES)


My husband and I are still in Ashburn, Virginia but we will be flying back to San Francisco tomorrow. He worked the whole night last night and he will work again tonight so he is currently sleeping while I’m typing away my thoughts. I planned to film a video while he’s sleeping but I really don’t want to wake him up with my movements or noise so I decided to just blog. While I already have a lot of travel posts typed on my phone, I can’t put them up just yet because I haven’t prepped the photos to go with them. Post-processing photos is one of the hardest part (for me) when creating travel entries for this blog, but don’t get me wrong, it’s all fun!

So I thought, I’d just share with you today the very first video I filmed using the ring light my sister bought for my birthday. It’s still kind of experimental as I wasn’t sure yet how to really work it and what proper camera settings I should use with it. I was happy with the end result though, but it definitely got lots of room for improvement. Anyway, I posted it on my YouTube channel in the beginning of this month and here it is!

13 Years…




This entry may not mean anything to anyone but my husband (well, hopefully). I just want to casually drop by today to let the world know how happy I am that I get to spend this day with my husband. We’ve been celebrating his birthday together since 2005 and it’s just amazing to think that “wow, it’s been 13 years…”

THE CANOPI RESORT, BINTAN INDONESIA: BIRTHDAY VLOG


If you haven’t seen my review of The Canopi Resort in Bintan Indonesia, you can go ahead and check it here now, especially if you’re planning to go somewhere new and and want to experience something different. While we’re there, I also vlogged our stay and here are Days 1 and 2 of our stay there.





UNIQLO and H&M TRY-ON HAUL


NOTE: This entry was written on 24th October, Tuesday, at 4:50AM in Denver Colorado and it was 33 degrees Fahrenheit (1 degree Celsius) outside at that time. Brrr...

This is just one part of the hotel's lobby where we stayed at while in Denver

We arrived at our hotel in Denver a couple of hours ago and my hubby is still busy working as of this very hour. We haven’t had a decent sleep yet but he’s gotta work. I don’t but I am currently transferring all the footage of my vlogs from the past days. I’ve been vlogging since day 1 of our trip to the US and I can’t wait for you to see them. It’s in my mother language, though.

Anyway, we did a bit of shopping before flying to the US because we didn’t have any clothing that’s okay for the colder weather so here’s the clothing haul I uploaded on my YouTube channel a couple of weeks ago.

SEPTEMBER 2017 RUNDOWN




If you’ve been following this humble page of mine for the past couple of months, you’d easily notice that I missed posting a To-Do list last month. Well... I actually didn’t miss it. I did make one but thought of keeping it to myself for last month and decided to just share with you how the month of September went via this monthly rundown post.
