Wedding Bells!

Hello you guys! Sorry I wasn't able to visit your blog for few days. As I have mentioned on my previous entry, I went to Mindoro for the weekend. I really had fun during my 3-day stay there. It is always refreshing there! I didn't have to turn the AC on. The electric fan was just on No.1 and I was already feeling cold. The best!

In case you didn't know, I went there to attend my cousin's wedding. Well technically, she's my Tita (father's cousin), but since she isn't that old to be called Tita I grew up calling her Ate. Ate Aileen used to look after me whenever I visit my Lolo's place when she was still living in the here in the Philippines (and when I was just a little girl). They moved to Canada when she was in high school so we didn't really get the chance to spend time together. Last time I bonded with her was during one of our cousin's wedding as well. Although we didn't spend so much time, we really had fun and I'm so touched that she invited me to her wedding!

Let me share a little background on their love story. Ate Aileen had been boyfriend-less for the longest time. When she went home last year, Kuya Eric was introduced to her. The people who introduced the two to each other didn't think that they liked it each other so they were surprised to know that they actually hit it off. Since Ate Aileen lives in Canada and both of them aren't so techie, they relied on phone calls. Kuya Eric's phone bill ranges from 15K-30K a month. Wow! And then after more than a year, he proposed and she apparently said yes. And ta-dah! Wedding na! It was a civil wedding. Very private, very simple.

▲ Lolo & Me before leaving his house. I forgot to bring a more appropriate footwear. Silly me. HAHA▲

▲Ate Aileen's so pretty! And I love her gown as well. So simple! She looked really elegant.▲
▲And he finally kissed the bride! :-) The ceremony was really short since it was just a civil wedding.▲
▲Of course there was the traditional money dance!▲
▲The very beautiful bride, Ate Aileen & my dearest Lolo. ▲
▲ Btw, these are the foods I ate. ▲
▲ This is funny. Lol. Since Ate Aileen's friends are in Canada and Kuya Eric's friends are all married, all the single men and women were just us -- COUSINS! HAHA! Madonna and Jeffrey caught the bouquet and garter. It was actually my first time to see Jeffrey because he lives in Canada ▲
▲ I was so happy because I finally got to spend time with my cousin, Yen again! It's been a long time! I missed her so much. We used to spend summer vacations together at Patas (Lolo's place), but because of school and work, we didn't get to hang out anymore. ▲
▲ And YAY! Photobooth! :-) ▲

I'm really so happy that I was able to attend the wedding. I also finally saw some of my relatives whom I haven't seen for the longest time! I still have so many photos to share with you guys, but I'm saving it for my next entries! Til next entry. I'll see you on your blog! ;))

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&#…
