LuLu Makeup Workshop

Even though you're far from kikay, every girl would do well to learn the basics of makeup application. You won't believe how much well-groomed eyebrows and lipstick can change your look. And since you are the product that you are pushing (yes, believe it or not, you are always selling yourself), it's to your advantage to make sure that that product is presented in the best possible light.

That's why it's great that two of my blogger friends Char and Donnarence have teamed up to come up with a half day makeup workshop that will cover the basics and beyond of makeup application. Knowing these two girls, that workshop will not only prove to be educational it will surely be fun, fun, fun as well!

Cooking up a Kitchen

Whoa. It's September already?! Why does it feel like we celebrated the new year just a few weeks ago? Seriously, time is moving so fast!!

But despite wanting time to stand still so I can savor every second with my baby boy, I'm also itching for October to come rolling by because that means that I'll be getting a windfall from work and I can finally have our kitchen renovated!

Ellana Pressed Mineral Foundation


I've always had a soft spot for mineral makeup because it was the first foundation that did not cause me to break out and/or make me feel like I was about to participate in a sagala (in short, natural lang ang peg). It's been years since I last used mineral makeup though because the loose powder formulation is just so difficult to use and my skin cleared enough for me to use tinted moisturizers. But mineral makeup will always be there among my holy grail products.

Sunday Surprise from Pond's

Let's see what's inside shall we?

Stocking Up on Basic Tops

I'd like to say that I prefer basics because they never grow out of style and then pretend that I'm a classic dresser that way, but I'd be lying. I'm now comfortable enough with myself to admit that I will never be fashionable and frankly, I don't give a sh*t.

Instead of being fashionable and following the trends, I try to go for clothes that flatter my body type and fit well. That means playing up my slender figure without drawing attention to my less than defined waist. Through the years I've come to realize that I look best in loose tops and tight fitting bottoms, or the reverse, tight tops with loose bottoms. And with my mommy pooch, I mostly favor loose tops these days.

Also, how can you go wrong with basic pieces? They go well with everything, they age gracefully and are every frugalista's bestfriend.
