Eyes and Lips Treat: NYX Lipstick and Etude House Play Liner

Nyx for Lips, Etude House for eyes

Hello guys! I have been quite busy lately during this month and I have more reviews and blog posts lined up. It’s just a matter of time where I have time to finally post them.

I am a big fan of good quality lipsticks. I like one that’s bright, long-lasting, also one that doesn’t cake! I received a lipstick from one of my students (thank you mommy Lally! :)) from one of the known lipstick brand called Nyx. I was really excited to try it because I rarely buy lipsticks which are in a bright shade.

nyx lipstick

Here is a smear sample in my hands:

nyx lipstick
Nyx lipstick

It’s not too glossy and not too matte, just right. It also has a bright shade to it and is long lasting. Since the texture is not too moist during application, make sure to put on some lip balm or lip primer to help spread the lipstick evenly.

Here is a sample when applied:

I love this shade because even if it’s bright red, it suits my skin color. Also when wearing this lipstick, I don’t have to put too much blush or eye makeup since most emphasis is on the lips.

I was also able to buy Etude House’s new product on sale! It’s called Play Stick. What’s so cool about it? It can function into anything you want it to be! It can be a lipstick, eyeliner, eyeshadow, even highlighter and concealer! The trick is you just have to pick a shade that suits the function you want it to be.

Here is what I got:

Etude House Play Stick

Orange Etude House Play Stick

White Etude House Play Stick

It’s very functional! I use the orange occasionally for my lips and the white stick to line my eyes under to give that “cute eyebags” effect. If you have tried this or have any questions about these products, let me know with your comments below!

25 Fulfilling Things I Was Able to Do Before 25

25 Fulfilling Things I Did Before I Turned 25

I guess being 25 is a pivotal point in most people’s lives. I could say that I am very much fulfilled with the things I did before I turned 25, not because of my own efforts, but through God’s grace and provision in my life. Looking in retrospect, every accomplishment was sweet, and every failure was a pavement that always leads me to His purpose. It’s not always an easy journey but I could see God’s hand continuously working in my life from past to the present. With that, I can be confident that I can face the future because He is with me. Here are 25 things I did that fulfilled me before I turned 25.

1. Traveled on a plane

13162457_10153610515948549_1121201097_n

There’s something with being thousands of feet up in the air. I realize my smallness compared to the vastness of His creation.

2. Had a steady job

13148482_10153610516398549_1648539247_o

I am blessed to have a job that not only helps other people but compensates well. Four years in my practice aren’t all sunny days but it sure was worth it.

3. Gave back to my family

13187874_10153610516038549_1489089496_n

13120643_10153610516678549_1680138526_o

Whether it’s treating them for a meal or a vacation, there’s such joy in seeing them happy because you returned the sacrifices they made for you.

4. Volunteered for others

13180903_10153610516008549_1856070699_n

One of the greatest feelings is helping others without asking for anything in return. You know that their gratefulness is genuine, and it’s good to know that you can do your own little part in making this world a better place.

5. Bought something for myself

The first thing that I bought for myself is a canon point and shoot camera, back when phones did not have too much photo-taking technology. Knowing that I did not depend on anyone to buy something is such a rewarding thought.

6. Participated and eventually led a cell group

13184741_10153610550793549_1728452093_o

Trust me, it isn’t in my comfort zone to lead a cell group but I knew I needed fellowship, insight and accountability in my life. It was a good journey with my girls so far.

7. Participated in a retreat

13181033_10153610516783549_905650095_n

One of the events that God used as an instrument for me to grow in my walk was joining retreats during high school and college. It was such a fun experience one of the things I won’t ever forget.

8. Cultivated my friendships

13161980_10153610516573549_1761455831_n

I used to be an aloof person who focused too much on my hobbies and how to earn money. But I realized that the things that are most important in life are the relationships you build. That’s how people will remember you.

9. Played an instrument

I learned to play guitar when I was in high school. Although I am not as good as other players, I am happy to learn a self-taught skill that I enjoyed doing.

10. Sought a new hobby

13147939_10153610516188549_478239540_o

December last year I bought an oven and I got excited to learn how to bake. I am still a beginner but it gives me happiness when I can make something that others can enjoy.

11. Went to a foreign land

13187770_10153610516858549_1679573295_n

I have been to two countries outside Philippines, one is Singapore and the other one is Macau. It is such an ethereal feeling to witness again how every person and every culture is different. I get to learn how people are outside my comfort zone. I want to do more of this as I go through my life.

12. Committed to a godly man

13161995_10153610516263549_1405805796_n

I prayed every day for a godly man to come into my life prior to meeting Charles. God has been gracious because not only was he a Christian, he is one who is passionate with loving and serving God. I am thoroughly proud and blessed to have him and there’s peace in my heart when I decided to commit to him. Now I am a witness that when God gives, He gives abundantly. Charles will forever be a reminder of that.

13. Organized an event

With the help from my closest friends, I was able to organize my last JS prom. It’s a nice feeling to see everyone enjoy with something that you put an effort to make possible

14. Took care of myself

13141132_10153610516913549_1371892559_n

I felt happy and confident when I tried to lose weight, did my makeup, picked my clothes and all those other things because people noticed it. Not because I was trying to gain the approval of others but it made me happy that I looked pleasant and I gained confidence in interacting with others.

15. Had a pet

13152896_10153610516093549_990392589_n

Having a pet is a big responsibility. Having my dog Rusty around is a joy and a commitment at the same time. When he is excited to see me come home, it makes me so happy. I love Rusty!

16. Helped renovate the house

My mom always told me of the “broken window syndrome” where the mood and mindset of people change based on their environment. I realized it’s true when we renovated our home. When I come home, I am pleased because the house looks beautiful and tidy.

17. Saved money

My mom taught me to save money. It isn’t about depriving yourself but being wise in making purchases and forgoing unnecessary expenses. I am happy to have saved some of my money for emergency and future investments.

18. Shared my thoughts

I started having this blog with the goal of sharing my thoughts, and cultivating my desire for blogging. It was very fulfilling because it was a way for me to express myself and for others to know me too.

19. Learned to drive

13162534_10153610516973549_1789222023_n

Learning to drive was a bold step for me considering the traffic situation in Metro Manila. As I was learning, my primary goal is to bring my family comfort and bring them to places they have never been before.

20. Applied to be a voter

I really didn’t care about politics that much when I was younger. Growing mature over the years, I realized that it’s a vital right for me to vote as this is my ticket to help my country choose a deserving leader. Seeing the pains of the ordinary Filipino motivates me to do my part and help this nation by exercising my right to vote.

21. Learned to forgive

I had regrets in my life that built unforgiveness in my heart towards people that have wronged me. However, the bitterness crept in my heart like poison. Forgiveness for me is a daily surrender and a process that only God’s grace can enable me.

22. Did something I was scared of – share gospel

Being an introvert who hates rejection, I am really scared to share the gospel. I did not know how to respond in the face of ridicule and rejection. But my desire to share what I know about God is my extend with how much I love the people around me so I took that bold step.

23. Tried to do a business

Though it wasn’t necessarily successful as I envisioned it to be, I learned a lot of things such as how to market, to manage my time and other resources to run a business. It also made me happy that I was able to have extra income to help in my expenses.

24. Attended seminars for my professional growth

13170018_10153610517078549_245927870_o

I was not fond of attending seminars since I don’t earn income from doing so and it ruins my routine momentum. But over time I realized that it is an important part of my professional growth to help my students better. So all in all it is still a gain for me and my clients.

25. Had a personal encounter and relationship with Jesus

13150039_10153610517248549_675585667_n

This is the best thing that happened to me. When I got to know Jesus, I experienced peace and joy that gave me the confidence to keep going with my life no matter how difficult it seems. Knowing Jesus and having a personal encounter with Him enabled me to be secure in this life and what else is to come.

My quarter life isn’t much of a crisis to me right now because I am blessed. Maybe not always with material things but with love from people, experiences that enriched me and my relationship with God. I look forward to many more experiences in my years to come.

The Broken Windows of Our Nation: My Insight on Philippine Elections

Everybody has been on the edge of their seats for the upcoming Philippine elections. In almost every person’s page, I can see paragraphs-long statuses and insight on articles regarding their preferred presidential candidates, or something against the candidate that they dislike. This post won’t be anything about that, but just my insight about the Philippine Elections that might help you shed some light on who to support, if you are still unsure.

Rotten System

Today I went to LTO Las Pinas to renew my license. Since my car was at the autoshop, I had no choice but to ride the jeep and tricycle on the way to Las Pinas. Upon getting there, I was told that I had to go to another LTO branch as their computers for license renewal were “offline”. It’s such an irony to see fixers outside the building with the guards just about a meter near them. It seemed that they were in a conspiracy to make people agree to pay a fixer so that they can get more money. To my dismay, I rode a jeep back to LTO Alabang and the intense late morning heat added to my uptight mood.

Time to Reflect

Little did I know that God somehow gave me this opportunity to reflect on my community, my city, and the Philippines in a small-scale level. I saw old Tatay still working to make ends meet, driving a beat-down jeep against the morning heat. He looked like someone who should be staying at home, resting and enjoying his retirement benefits. His poverty seemed to be a result of the lack of sympathy from the government to offer him anything despite his age.

I looked outside the jeep window and I saw several cars cutting past each other and endlessly honking. The jeeps stop at the middle of the road without a care to other motorists as they are trying to get passengers to make a living. I stared at the walls of buildings and they were filled with vandalism of gangs, roads that were picked, run-down walls and areas that smelled of urine and trash. In summary, I saw a lack of order, discipline and sympathy towards each other. People acted the way that they view their environment–dirty, smelly, disorderly and chaotic. Eventually, people imitated each other’s behavior and compromised just because it felt like it was the norm. Fixers offering their services for an illegal service in front of a “Beware of Fixers” sign. The motorists cut each other, people were shouting under the noontime sun. It’s what brought that small piece of place that I saw into a regressive state.

Broken Windows

The upcoming Philippine Elections and out nation’s status reminded me of what my mom told me years ago about the Broken Windows Theory. She told me that there’s a theory in criminology about an experiment where a piece of building facade was left broken and rugged. People eventually added to the mess that it was, and incidence of crime and disorder in that place increased. However, when an opposite facade was placed, an orderly place that was beautified and looked secure, it changed how people acted in the place. They had a sense of responsibility and did not place any vandals on that facade. I had a ‘lightbulb’ moment with how I can relate it the upcoming elections, our government and nation as a whole.

Who Should Be Our Leader?

If I were to pick a leader, I would pick someone who can help restore that sense of order and dignity in the hearts of every Filipino. The reason why government officials are corrupt is because it has been what it was and it still is–the broken window of our system. Everyone is doing it so might as well just do it. In the small scale level, it’s also the reason why we throw trash on the road, why we cheat on our market scales, why our teenagers are out of school and vandal on the walls of our cities, why we do drugs and so senseless crimes that harm innocent people, why we are reckless on the road, why government services have an excuse to be lousy, why poor people have an excuse to commit crimes such as theft, murder, holdup, kidnap, carnap and all other kinds of “-naps”, why the greedy and rich businessmen and hacienderos squeeze what they can out of poor workers who are trying to make ends meet–it’s because everyone else like them is doing it.

If and Only If

If and only if, there’s a leader who can change the tide of how things are, someone who doesn’t owe anything to anyone, and someone who can uplift how Filipinos see themselves–to exemplify and bring them that sense of dignity, discipline, and compassion towards each other then they will be Filipinos who will be active participants in the nation’s growth. That’s how Japan is. That’s how Singapore blossomed into who they are right now. And we can have the chance to achieve that if we exercise our right to vote.

Leadership is a vital role in a country’s progress. Hand in hand it goes with each citizen’s sense of responsibility which is inspired by the leader and the culture and environment he or she creates. So this May 9 Philippine Elections, I challenge each voter to elect someone who can scrap the broken windows of our nation and replace it with strong, orderly and beautiful ones that will inspire the Filipinos to work together towards progress.

God bless our nation and the Philippine Elections. Lord, let Your will be done.

Summer Fashion Haul: Cute Tops I Love

Summer Fashion: Cute Multi-functional Tops, Styles I Love

I love summer fashion as much as I love summer! No, I definitely don’t like too much heat, but I love how colorful and cute summer colors and styles are. I also love going to the beach, taking a break, breathing in relief and marveling the beauty of God’s creation. What better way to celebrate it looking pretty and colorful? Here are some of the cute tops (and one dress) I found at good deals!

summer fashion
Sheer white top with tassels, Metro

I love the sheerness of this white top and the tassels below it! It’s fun to wear as regular top but it can also double as a cover-up when you’re swimming. It’s fun to wear with shorts or pants. I love anything white too because it makes me look clean and chic. I bought this at Metro Store Alabang on sale! Yay!

Green see-through top with floral patterns
Green see-through top with diagonal patterns, Yessica

This second top is a bit loose at the bottom, is see-through but it has these pretty diagonal patterns. I wore a tank top underneath. I love how breezy this top is even if I’m putting on two layers of clothing. Like the white top, this can also look good in shorts and pants.

Blue dress with lace back and tribal prints, Forever 21
Blue dress with lace back and tribal prints, Forever 21

I love fun prints! At the top of my list is floral or tribal prints with coordinated hues. Like this blue-light blue-pink-purple dress from Forever 21. I then decided to put my hair up with a matching blue pony tail because it was sooo hot! Whew!

Black mid-rib top, Bershka
Black mid-rib top, Bershka

I love the cut of this top because the neckline is not too low and it’s a cute mid-rib perfect as a swimsuit cover up at the beach. I won’t wear this out on a mall or a church on a regular day (too revealing since it shows a little part of the abdomen), but it’s good essential to have when you’re out in the sun or as a swimwear, it’s definitely a classy addition.

Summer fashion shopping tips:

  1. To have good deals, buy during mid-month or end of month sales. The boutiques usually coincide their sale with the mall sales.
  2. Also check out outlet stores! They have good brands for very low-price deals.
  3. Find inspiration on Pinterest or Instagram to know what clothes to mix and match before you shop. Be observant in details such as accessories, which patterns, colors and cut are most flattering to your body type. Trendy doesn’t always mean it looks good on you.
  4. Enjoy! Be comfortable on your style and you will definitely shine. If you look good, you will feel good about yourself.
