I’ve always been the apprehensive type when it comes to my hair. I easily get agitated by the thought of having a drastic hair change. Lighter color, chopped tresses, chemical hair treatments – these give me chills down my spine. Seriously. It takes me months to decide whether I should get a new hair cut or color. Just recently, Hair Philosophie by Jing Monis invited me for a day of hair pampering. I was surprised that I immediately said yes to this invitation, given that the services they offered included hair cut, color, and treatment. Okay, that’s a lie. I said yes […]

Onitsuka Tiger and My Sneakers Love Affair


There’s a reason why I’m not a fashion blogger. For one, I’m not exactly adventurous with my choice of shoes and clothes.

Shaping my brows is my absolute favorite thing to do in my makeup routine. Whether it’s a simple everyday look or a full on makeup, I do take time working on my arches. Nevermind if it takes more than five minutes, as long as I’m able to achieve #browsonfleek.  That said, I am quite  picky with the brow products I use. My current favorite is the Diorshow Brow Styler Pencil which I got as a gift from my mother-in-law. It’s everything I’m looking for in a brow pencil – applies easily, neutral shade, soft finish, and long-wearing.  But it is rather expensive, […]
