Belo Baby | Talc-Free Powder + Giveaway


Can I ask you a question? When was the last time you applied baby powder on your precious little one? If you ask me, I can't even remember the last time I bought baby powder. You see, in the Philippines, most baby powders (if not all) contain Talc- an ingredient that has been the subject of  debates and lawsuits in the US because of its supposed cancer-causing effects. As a first-time mom, naturally, I don't want to apply any product that contains a harmful ingredient to my baby girl.

#BeloBaby | Talc-Free Powder


Well, here's the first dibs... Belo Baby, a trusted name in skincare, has launched a baby powder that contains zero talc. It's made with all natural ingredients and guarantees that no harmful chemicals go into each jar of Belo Baby Talc-Free Powder. It provides an all-natural protection from diaper rash. Isn't that great news?

SM | Shop the World of Beauty


When I went to Tokyo last April, I didn't buy a single beauty product. Yes, you read it right---> not even a lipstick! I was standing inside one of the cosmetic shops just staring at all the makeup brands thinking, we already have these back home. Needless to say, I ended up walking out of the store empty-handed!

Just a few years ago, I would hoard the latest makeup trends shown in ads whenever I travel in other parts of the world. I can even stay for a day inside one of those cosmetic shops, no exag! I remember one time, when my sister was on one of her business trips abroad, I video called her just to bug her to buy my beauty essentials. I never would have imagined that one day will come when I no longer need to travel abroad to buy my favorite makeup brands because we already have it all here in the Philippines!

 SM Aura | World of Beauty Tour

Nomination Italy | Composable Bracelet


I was at the Nomination Italy store in Glorietta 4 to check out this cult jewellery's Composable collection last Friday. It was a fun afternoon where I got to create my own bracelet from among the hundreds of symbols and designs to choose from. Thank goodness, my sister was with me that day because not only did I get to compose my own bracelet, I was also able to personalize another bracelet for our mom. She helped me pick a Mother's Day gift for our mom.

Nomination Italy | Create Your Bracelet


It was in the year 1987, when a family company in Florence, Italy started Nomination. It created the original personalized bracelet in stainless steel. You can choose from hundreds of precious links to personalize your Composable jewellery so you can tell your story.

All About Mom | Happy Mother's Day


My mom has been through a lot. At the beginning of the year, my mother had an eye operation due to Retinal Tear or Detachment. While she was still recovering from her first operation, the doctor noticed a second detachment located at the lower region of the eye called Inferior Retinal Detachment. The second detachment needed an immediate operation or else she will completely lose her vision on her left eye. She had undergone two succeeding operations in the span of three months.

One Tough Mama

I saw her hardships while she was on her road to recovery. People who had undergone the same surgery would know the difficulty it entailed- physically and emotionally. But my mother is one tough mama. She was able to rise up and see what life has to offer in a different perspective.
