Happy Skin Beauty Line Launch + The Best Oil Control Ever!

Thursday, March 15, 2018
Happy Skin just released their first ever beauty/skincare line, and I'm already obsessed. It's not often that I find a product that works for my skin and doesn't irritate it. Most times, oil control serums dry up my skin and leave me with flaky patches. I've been using this for a couple of days now and I haven't felt any bad dryness at all! 

Happy Skin has always made products that are formulated with the most skin-friendly ingredients, while promising to offer incredible results. Their long-time success has led them to partner with several famous brands such as Sanrio. Now, they've decided to push further by launching a skincare line called Happy Skin Beauty

Happy Skin Beauty is made of two skincare series: The Anti-Aging Series & Oil Control Series. For obvious reasons, I got the oil control one. 

Bon Appetit at Maison de Bonbon

Wednesday, January 31, 2018

I'm someone who's always looking for somewhere new to have a memorable dining experience. Maison de Bon Bon has been around for quite some time already, but it had always been the kind of place that I would see, want to go to, but would never have the chance. Then a fortunate Saturday finally happened, and I decided it was time. To be honest, I was expecting small servings with ridiculous prices, as what I had heard, but thankfully that impression didn't last. All of my judgments were swept away the moment the food arrived on my table. When it comes to French-inspired cuisine in Cagayan de Oro City, Maison de Bon Bon just knocks other cafes off the list. 

When Life Shoves You in Another Direction

Sunday, December 10, 2017
Do you ever have those moments where you think you have everything planned out? You feel as though your future is set, and all you need to do is follow a map you created in your mind (or even wrote down if you're that passionate about life-planning). You've planned when you're gonna graduate from college, when you're gonna get married, where you're going to live and work. Heck, you might already be planning a future with someone you just had eye contact with, but that's on an entirely different level.

Edgy + Earthy: Spruce's New Collection (GIVEAWAY!)

Saturday, November 11, 2017

Hey, lovelies! Last Friday, I got to visit Spruce's Limketkai branch to check out their November collection and let me tell you, I am OBSESSED! Their new collection is a mix of edgy and earthy. Lots of gorgeous hardware on their bags and accessories, as well as earthy tones in their apparel. I noticed that their collection includes a lot of patchwork and embroidery, which is perfect if you wanna keep up with the trends and get that perfect OOTD!

Crushing your Fashion Fears

Friday, September 1, 2017
I'm a big girl. And while it took me years to accept that, I finally have, and yes, I am a big girl. My body structure isn't the kind you see in magazines. I'm taller and bigger than most of my friends. Beauty pageants would probably look away from me. I'm a big girl and I used to hate that, but now, who cares? I certainly don't.

But I'll be honest... being plus-size used to hold me back from expressing myself through fashion. Finding clothes for plus size ladies is hard as hell. Most of the 'normal' shops here have sizes up to XL, and sometimes XL doesn't even look like an XL (Seriously, what is with that?) There aren't as many choices, either, so sometimes you're left with a 'this will have to do' instead of a 'this is perfect' choice. 

But it wasn't just the challenge of finding clothes that discouraged me. There were so many times where I thought, "I can't wear this because I'm plus size." I envied skinny girls who could rock skinny jeans and baggy shirts. I felt different in a bad way, because it seemed like the world made clothes for women who weren't like me. I left the clothes that I really wanted to try for the people who seemed like they were made to wear those clothes.

Until this year, I had never worn skirts that were above my knees. I never wore shorts. I was afraid of showing my legs because I thought they were too meaty. All of my tops were loose because I wanted to avoid outlining my stomach muffins. I just wanted to cover everything and hide under layers of clothes that I didn't even feel confident in. 

But, I was sick of it. So I did something about it. I decided to spice up my #OOTD.
