Be Your Own Health Artist at the Health and Wellness Fair 2016

Being a nurse has allowed me to learn more about the human body, its strengths, weaknesses, potentials, conversions, mutations, capacity and inabilities to regenerate, multiply and heal, etc. I believe that you will always have a choice to take in things that will make you stronger, and avoid other facets that may mark you otherwise. Yes, I am righteous like that. ūüėÄ

Not to sound preachy or anything, but I strongly support creating and following a strict and healthy lifestyle, especially for young professionals like me. We are that population that is mostly exposed to whirlwinds of events. You can imagine just how many things you can do, situations you can encounter and people you can meet in a day. Can you imagine all the stress and sleep deprivation you had to endure to pass that report on time? Sometimes, it’s a wonder how can a day only have 24 hours! Yes, I feel you. But given that as a fact, I still highly vouch for healthy living. Because we can only function well and better, when all things are in order. Aside from our WiFi and gadgets, our life and well-being must be in order too.

Be it as it may, I am excited to share with you an upcoming event that will delight us with bazaar exhibits, workshops on arts, fitness and entrepreneurship; and talks by experts on health and wellnes. These are dedicated to help us live and practice the best kind of healthy lifestyle there is!

Be part of the first Health and Wellness Fair this October!

BTS : Empire East‚Äôs Bloggerazzi (Wave 2)

Last month, we started a campaign with some of the country’s rising online influencers composed of young professionals, students, moms, and freelancers.

If you have seen my first Bloggerazzi post, you would have an idea of what’s¬†coming! We were supposed to have the shoot at¬†The Rochester in San Joaquin, Pasig, however there was a scheduled event there as well. So, we decided to go to Kasara Urban Resort Residences again instead.

Can I just say that the weather is always cooperative in our shoots? The sun was so bright and happy that day, that’s why it was no wonder our bloggers had¬†so much fun¬†taking photos. Not to mention the place is without a doubt, very Instagrammable!


Peace-ing poses with Ms Jazz, Neri¬†of Nheng’s Wonderland, and Nicole!


It’s a¬†riddle for me on how a mom of twins such as Neri can juggle family life, career, and blogging all at the same time! I can only wish to have such sharp sense of time management when I become a mom like her someday! ūüôā



Here is a photo of me with (from L-R) Luigi, Daphne, Lauren, Me, and Candis. These girls of Posh Possibilities  are the cutest! I swear they are so sweet and fun to be with in person!

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset

Props for Sir Mike for making me look oh-so-tall and slender in this photo! Golly, I could have sworn I was around 5″6 in this shot! Well,¬†if I didn’t know me. But.. (shuts up. Haha :P)


This picture¬†truly gives meaning to Empire East’s tagline –¬†Life is at Empire East.¬†

I can’t wait to know who will win our photo share and like contest! We’ll announce them today! Do you have any guesses? Let us know who you think!

Dearberry: The Sweetest Treat for Beauty Buffet Lovers

I love makeup. I practically wear them everyday.

picture3Makeup is essential to any person, regardless of gender (I believe!). It enhances your physical image, making you look more presentable, credible, likeable, trustworthy, and extremely polished to match that high level of¬†professionalism. Makeup is something you go to (aside from your bestfriend) everytime you have something special to prepare¬†for or going on. There is just something that makes us feel extra confident and beautiful when we wear them. They are like amulettes of some sort. That is why, it was such a delight when I got invited to Dearberry Philippines’ Premier Launch for Bloggers and Video Bloggers.


Last September 3, I sashayed my excited glass wedge heels to Oakwood Premier Joy-Nostalg in Ortigas.

I just got in time and was wowed by all the pinkiness of Dearberry: from the registration booth to the hall, down to the press kit.


I sat down with fellow bloggers and was too excited for what‚Äôs about to happen. I read about Dearberry prior to attending and I found¬†it very timely for the brand. The Philippine market is doing well, and our shores couldn’t be much happier than to welcome this Korean beauty line.

You see, I’ve always fancied Korean products. It makes me wonder how they can be so different from other products, but they definitely answer the needs and pampering wishes of Asian skin. I guess, that is why most of my makeup are Korean-made.



Minutes after, Odie¬†and Marika of BamRock MDSG started the brand introduction and product ¬†orientation. They were so cute and bubbly, that I am not sure which did I enjoy more, the product information or their hosting. Haha ūüôā


Executives from Dearberry Korea were also present. They all look sprightly and youthful, which made me more curious about the brand. I am in my late 20s already, and investing on my skin is now a top-priority. Little did I know, I was in for something that can support me on my quest to look forever 21! Haha :))


The product orientation really had us glued to the slides, and the cosmetics being passed around, for testing and swatches. It was super cool how each product is unique and naturally¬†becomes a top list in any make-up artist’s , enthusiast’s, and/or ¬†newbie’s beauty loot.

So brace yourselves my dear mermaids, mermen, and merfolks!


Dearberry is ¬†a Korean makeup and beauty brand that you’ll go shopcrazy about! That’s actually just an understatement.¬†The brand essence of Dearberry is “affordable high quality cosmetics” made with ingredients from nature.” It’s called Dearberry because most extracts are from 8 berries (Blueberry, Acai berry, Raspberry, Aronia berry. Elderberry, Cranberry, Blackberry and Strawberry).

From the same makers of ¬†high-end and good quality beauty brands such as The Face Shop, L’Oreal and Tony Moly, Dearberry is¬†a promising line that will definitely do wonders to¬†our skin and makeup pegs without burning holes in our pockets!

Dearberry believes the simple truth, “healthy skin is most beautiful” and sticks to the basics, “firstly keep skin healthy, then optimally solve target issues.”

It’s¬†wonderful to know that these products are made of natural ingredients and fruit berries that are totally friendly, scientifically proven, and nurturing to the skin.

So as to pacify your impatient but excited hearts, here are the goodies you will soon welcome in your makeup kits!



Right bottle with orange cap РWaterproof Point Makeup Remover /  Left bottle with pink cap РHypoallergenic makeup remover



Everlasting moisture is what these trio gives, you’ll never complain¬†of dry skin again! Yay! :))



I love how this primer feels on the skin. It’s mattifying properties surely are strong!


I am amazed how this affordably priced gem covers my ¬†stubborn pimple marks! Yes I’ve been using this after the event, and it’s a must-buy! I’ll post a review soon!


Suri suri Aguamenti Powder Pact (This reminds me of a magic spell Harry Potter casts in the basin in Half-blood Prince! Potterheads, dibaaaa?!) This is very light on the skin. Makes you feel like you’re not wearing any makeup at all.


Gives you exceptionally good finish that covers blemishes!




Sometimes, when I don’t have to train a class or face clients, I do not feel compelled to wear makeup, worrying I am just putting to much gunk in my face that will later on cause my pores to breakout. But Dearberry erases all those woes away! Now these are very helpful especially when I’m all feeling lazy – a good set of¬†kilay¬†(brow) tools and makeup! Haha Truly,¬†kilay¬†is life!


The Rock It eye pallette is so dainty and it reminds me of prom, first kisses, and innocence! These are excellent for weekend dates and girly hangouts with friends!


The eyeshadows also come in singles! My favorite is the Climon Brown shade, which I got in the free loot. Browns and nudes are simply the most versatile shade for every outfit, event,  and skincolor.


Must eyetem Mascara! They glide evenly to your lashes, I promise!




Very helpful lipbalms for the cold and wintry weather! Either in the office or university, this should definitely be in your beauty list right now!


OMG! I will repeat: A girl can NEVER have too many lipsticks. It’s a fact. Bow.


The crown detail inside of the Prin-sense Duo is such a takeaway! It will undoubtedly make you feel that this cute little lipbalm is made just for you! How can they know that we are into crowns? Dearberry must have ESP or something!




Good facial masks are a great way to pamper stressed skin from a hard day’s work.


This soothing cream is waterbased and can be a good alternative if your skin is too sensitive for oil-based creams.


These queenly products bring back the energy of your skin and revitalize the bright skin tone with a fresh feeling left behind.


Snail creams are all the rage both in Korea and the Philippines right now! They lock in moisture and protect your skin in the eye area from harmful allergens in the environment.


The oh-so-cute packaging is such an endearing surprise to keep us all happy and perky when we’re using these perfume hand creams! This is perfect for girls who are always inside airconditioned establishments, like me! The cold is an awesome venue for dry skin, hands and chappy lips! Yikes! So this handcream is a savior!


There was also a makeup session after the presentation.We were taught how to apply basic and natural makeup. With all the many tutorials on Youtube and blogs, I highly appreciate this one! It gave me a lot of insights on how to apply such good quality makeup, by looking more for less.



The event was a total success, and an amazing experience indeed! I got to meet and be friends with beautiful bloggers and vloggers!

Say hi to Cas (Vlogger / Youtube Channel / Instagram) and Erika (Blogger / Blog / Instagram) . Visit their amazing perspectives in their pages!
