Hairy Talk

I did not really intend to post something until tomorrow, but it's a very good date. I cannot not have have anything posted on 10.10.10! Allow me to talk about something important tonight. Yes. Extremely important. My hair frustration. -_-

I was born with a naturally curly hair. It was cute when I was young, people who saw when I was still a baby told me that my facehair was really like those of a doll's. Really curly. Good thing it didn't stay that way. Eventually, my hair straighten up a little, but it's still wavy and unruly. *looks for old photos*
I can't find any photo where my hair is really curly. Most of my childhood photos are in Mindoro that's why. I found this, though. My cousin Sarah scanned this for me. I was glad they still have our old photos at their house in Toronto. So yeah. That's how my hair looks like without any treatment and without the help of a blow dryer or flat iron.

I started having my hair treated when I was in 2nd Year Highschool. I was so thankful that I finally found a solution for my hair. Goodbye wavy and unruly hair, hello straight hair! I know we should be contented with what was given to us, but I really don't like my natural hair. I feel like I look better when my hair is straight. Aside from having my hair rebonded, I also bought really good quality flat iron. The one I'm using now is my second one already (excluding the cheap ones,lol). It takes so much effort just to keep my hair straight or to at least make it look good. :-/ Aside from having naturally wavy hair, I also have a very thick hair. So imagine how long does it take me to blow dry and to straighten it.

I have mentioned here before that I feel more beautiful better when my hair is down. As much as I can, I just let my hair down. I just tie it up when i really do not have enough time to blowdry and iron it. I rarely post pictures when I have my hair tied up. Aside from my hair issues, I think I have a big and irregular shaped face. HAHAHA! Insecurities eat me up sometimes!

So anyway, first and last picture, two of the rare moments when I actually liked how the photo turned out even I tied my hair up. The middle photo is how I prefer my hair to be. Well, not really like that, I like it more straight but I was too lazy to iron it out again before taking picture.

So I guess that's all for my 10.10.10 entry. I better stop before I pour out all my insecurities here!

Magalawa Island in Zambales - 2016

To kick off Philippines' Summer 2016, we headed to Magalawa Island in Palauig, Zambales. Travel time from Manila is more or less 5 hours, depending on your stop overs if you go there by a private car. Boat ride to Magalawa was quick. I think it was between 10-15 minutes.
I did my research before going to the island. And yes, I have read about the feud between the two resorts in the island, Armada and Ruiz. The person in charge for reservation first inquired at Armada but they were fully booked already.  Since I did my research, I knew that I shouldn't expect much. I was looking forward to it, but definitely, I had my expectations set!
So, we arrived at Ruiz, the staff are really nice. People are really helpful and kind. As for the shoreline at resort, I was not disappointed because, like what I have said, I knew what we're going to see. It would have been really better if there were no seaweeds. The water is really clear but the seaweeds are really annoying!  I enjoyed st…

The Neutrals & Nudes (MAC Siss, Yash, Mocha, Taupe)

I took these photos of the lipsticks months ago, but apparently, I would always end up not posting it. Here I am again, drafting an entry but unlike last time, this is not going to be a failed attempt! So let's start!
Lipsticks are my favorite make up! It's the easiest to apply, the most convenient to bring and that make up that can easily give you a transformation from daytime to night time look! My make up kit which I bring to work everyday has a lot of lipsticks in it. I do not even know why I carry a lot of lipstick with me always, but that's how girls are! We bring all the make ups that we can (or is it just me?)!
These are four of the liptsicks that I tend to carry with me everyday. Well, I do not change lipstick every 3 hours, but I like bringing them because I love mixing them lippies! :D

LA Matte Pigment Gloss - Fleur

I think I have mentioned a lot of times how I am a matte kind of girl. I have been seeing a lot of people posting and raving about the LA Matte Pigment for more or less a year now. I was really hesitant to try it because I had an impression that it would be like the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams which I didn't really like.
What made me decide to finally give it a try is when I saw one of my officemates wearing it. It looked really pigmented and I noticed how it has a long lasting effect! There is a stall near my work place which sells the brand so I bought one. I forgot how much exactly did I but it for, but I'm sure it's not more than 350php.

I decided to get Fleur. I was initially thinking of getting Dreamy because I loved it so much when I swatched it but I got talked into getting Fleur because the staff told me that it looks better on me! Lol.
It's really pigmented and I can vouch for its staying power! It doesn't have a weird smell, too so plus points again! It&#…
