Hello my little lovelies!

They say that when in Rome, do as the Romans do. So what do you do if you find yourself smack right in the middle of the trendiest street this side of Asia?

Do as the Manilenos do, and shop til your hearts (and wads of cash) drops!

There is something about shopping (a.k.a. retail therapy) in Manila that gives you quite a high. Don't know if it's the dirt cheap sale prices, or the amount of eye candy (talking about trendy, hunky shoppers) I get to ogle on that gives me this I-can-rock-the-world-in-high-heels feeling.

Or maybe it's the fact that I can practically wear anything, or any trend, without getting crossed looks from people now as opposed to how people did four or five years ago. I love how the Philippine fashion industry is moving at top speed, and how we are no longer mere spectators if its glory. We, the deprived generation of yesterday, are finally the moving and driving force of (fashion) today.

No longer are we looking at glossy prints wishing we could be the person beyond the image, but today we are that image. We have the power to create and style looks based on who we are an how we feel --and we are (a lot more) free to express ourselves without worrying what others might think. 
I like to believe that the we are the Romans of today - innovative and at the forefront of building the next fashion forward Colosseum.
Only question is, are you here for the ride as well?

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 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…
