Happy Sunday everyone!

It has been raining nonstop in the metro this past week, and a bright sunny sky was quite the sight to see. My friend and I decided to go out today to have a little fun with this lovely dress, Linda of Martofchina has sent me. Thank you so much, I love this piece to bits.

 Since chiffon is a soft and lightweight fabric, I decided to wear this biker jacket to toughen up the look.

I chose this dress not only for its versatility (which I will show you a little later) but for the great quality and affordable price tag as well. Can you believe this outfit only costs $7.50?

Let me show you the first way to wear this dress: Cinch up the waist with a tiny belt for a more formed and body conscious look. This looks best for when you are going to work or formal occasions where a more structured look is desired.

Alternative look: Wear it on its own and let the drapes flow against the wind. This is a more casual way to wear this, which is perfect when you are going on a night out on town.

You can also drop one of the sleeves so this dress will accentuate the asymmetric cut on the neckline.

I hope you guys enjoyed this post as much as I did. I want to post a little shout out to my amazing friend, Dionne for these lovely shots. Do check out his blog here.

Tell me guys what you think, and don't forget to hype this look on LB. :)

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…
