Canvas


Happy Saturday everyone!

Welcome back, and as promised here is my latest outfit/art post. I know it's summer in the other half of the world but where I am from, the leather jacket season is just beginning.


I am wearing an outfit that is meant to be worn during the summer. By adding this textured cardigan over the outfit,  you can go from warm and sexy to cool and casual -- perfect for the colder days ahead.


This jacket is an old one I fished out of my mom's luggage when I did my spring cleaning, I just love borrowing vintage styles and incorporating them into my own wardrobe.


I know people have been sporting these floral headbands for a while now. I guess it's never too late to join in on the trend, especially now since I found a good use for it too.


Since I am feeling more inspired, I decided to turn my post into a canvas painting of sorts. This post is inspired by the song Summertime Sadness by Lana Del Rey. It has a tragic message, but I like to believe that the song is about how one's love can make a person feel warm, youthful and alive.

  5. This post is so beautiful! I love what you did. We are in the middle of a heat wave so I can't even think about leather but fall is my favorite time of year and I can't wait for it to return!

2nd BDJ Women's Summit {Giveaway Closed}

Hello darlings! Welcome back to the blog. Today, I'll be showing you what transpired last weekend at the 2nd BDJ Women's Summit. This charitable event was not only inspirational, but it also paved a way for people to get in touch with causes that benefit the women and children of the Philippines. These partner organizations include: Ahon sa Hirap Inc., Angat Buhay, ECPAT PH, Kinamot Nga Buhat, Grace to be Born, Elsie Gaches, Miss Possibilities Foundation, Fairplay for All Foundation, Girls Got Game PH, Plush and Play, as well as Jacinto and Lirio.


I took my friend with me to the Summit Talks and we thoroughly enjoyed their stories. Among the amazing line up of speakers, my absolute favorite ones were about BDJ founder, Darlyn Ty's beginnings and OFW turned Businesswoman, Rebecca Bustamante-Mills success story. It just goes to show that anybody can make it big with small beginnings.

Unboxing the BDJ Elite Box 2017 : Colour Collection

Hello my darlings! Today, we will be unboxing my first BDJ Elite Box. I have been curious about these boxes for a while now, so I jumped in excitement when the team from BDJ sent me this care package. :)


You can get all of these items from Colour Collection, which retails for more than 4,000 all together, for only Php 1480 at bdjbox.com/bdj-box. I highly suggest this for any beginner makeup artist since you can grow your kit with these essential makeup items.


The All Day Wear Lengthening Mascara (P399) and Brow Mascara (P399) are the perfect duo in creating that sleek eye makeup look. The brow mascara is very pigmented so swipe conservatively. :)


The 14HR Liquid Eye Liner Pen (P369) is very sharp and pigmented. I wore this to work the other day and it was very jet black - I love it! :)


This Eye Shadow Trio Palette (P399) is the bomb! It's matte but not too pigmented, so it's very forgiving for first time users. I am totally into Dove Cameron's makeup look and I found that…
