    Nowhere Girl Vlogs | I Had a Haircut!

    Lately, I have been contemplating whether to cut my hair or not and I have finally decided to chop it off before my hike last June. Why? Well, I wanted to start doing things truly independently. I have been living alone for years, but I still consult my mom even with my smallest decisions. I know it’s way too deep for a haircut, but to me, it means the world. For once, I have become a little more fearless and independent. See the video below!

    Hair Brush Straighteners

    I’ve always been a fan of straightening my hair. In fact, when I was a lot younger, I would ask my mom to straighten my hair because I wanted to look like Cher from the 70’s. (Please don’t judge, I’ m a HUGE fan.) But it wasn’t always easy cause for some reason after getting a perm at 13 (terrible idea!) my hair never grew the same way again which made it harder to straighten it. My mom would spend hours trying to fix my hair before I can go to school looking decent and without my hair flying in all directions due to a bad perm that damaged my…

    Dresses and Rompers and where to get them…

    Not a lot of people know this, but I am actually a huge fan of clothes. Back in my college days, I used to always wear rompers whenever I go out of town cause it gives me the mobility I can’t get when I’m wearing plain jeans. I used to own a bunch of rompers back in the day and worn them whenever I travel, especially in beaches. But somehow, along the way (and a couple of pounds later), I withdrew from rompers and went on to try dresses when I began teaching, cause it just seem right to look a bit more formal, right? Well, yeah… However, I’m not…

    My Skin and Hair Adventures with Coffee Grounds

    Alright, I know there are plenty of far more worthy reads about using coffee grounds as part of a skin care routine on the first page of Google. However, for those who are still a bit in doubt or still a little clueless about the benefits of using coffee grounds as part of a skin care routine, I’m sharing my personal experience about it. And also, I am sooo excited to write about it. Ha ha. I haven’t been doing this for a long time, and though I was aware of how it could be used as a scrub I never fully tested it until last week. Personally, I’m not…

    L’Oreal Launches Color Riche Velvet Pinks

    I don’t know with you guys, but I always thought that L’Oreal’s Color Riche collection is just absolutely gorgeous! I honestly tried to complete the reds and plums, to my disappointment, for the shades I want are always out of stock.  Nonetheless, it won’t stop me from buying from the said brand especially now that they’ve released a new set of shades which are just as beautiful as the red, rich, and vibrant ones.  What’s great is that, this new addition to the said collection is actually pink! Beautiful hues of pink that are made to suit the Filipina skin tone. Yes! Shout out to my fellow Morena’s out there!…

    Maybelline Buy 2 Take 1 May 1 – 30 2016

    The Philippines’ favorite makeup hub is having, yet another, buy 2 take 1 promo that will start today, May 1st and will last till the end of this month. Available in all Maybelline branches and kiosks.   Personally, I’m extremely happy they’re having another promo. Last time, they had an awesome deal on lipsticks that I might have hoarded a little. But who’s to blame? Maybelline, in my opinion, is the best cosmetics brand for the Filipina skin, and with reasonable prices, who wouldn’t dig this promo?

    Beauty Hacks: Baking Soda

    I’m sure that by now practically everyone is aware of the many uses of baking soda apart from being just a part of every baking regimen. But for those who are not yet aware of the magical things you can do with it, here are some of them that you might actually find helpful: 1. It’s an anti-dandruff shampoo.– Baking soda can be used as a clarifying shampoo since it’s a pretty great absorber of accumulated dirt. If you’ve used every product that strongly promised to remove all the (snow) flakes from your scalp and shoulders, why not give baking soda a try? Instead of using your favorite shampoo, massage…
