My Sister's Graduation

Aside from Manila weather and us girls, what else is hot? HAHA. Okay. Laaaaame way to start a blog entry! I honestly do not know how to start this entry. I wanted to write something interesting to keep you guys reading, but my writing skill sucks. Do we even call it a skill even if we suck at it? Psh. Since I do not know how to make this an interesting start, I'll tell you friends what I'll be blogging about. It's my sister's graduation! Yay! There, I finally said! So I'll go ahead and let the pictures do the talking! GAME!

So let me start by telling you guys how difficult it was to find a dress for my sister, Krizza. Unlike me and my youngest sister, Kiara, Krizza is not too girly. She's more of a Pants-Vneck kind of girl! She's not into accessories and dresses. We went from one mall to another just to buy her dress and shoes! I really like the dress. It's simple, classy and sexy! We found it at People Are People. Krizza was still wearing flats in these photos because these were taken right before we leave the house. I'll be posting a collage with her whole outfit in a little while.
The graduation ceremony was held at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC). The program was set to start at 9AM and we arrived at the location at 7:45AM, I think. Since it's graduation time, we made sure to leave the house really early because Manila traffic can be really unbelievable! There were already so many graduates and parents when we got to the location. Everyone was just so happy and excited! Every parents looked so proud!

Each graduate was given two tickets only. I could not leave Kiara alone, so it was only my Mother who was able to went inside the PICC Plenary Hall to witness the whole ceremony. The ceremony lasted for more than three hours and we went to Starbucks Harbor Square, which is just walking distance from PICC, to grab breakfast and kill time. The view there is so pretty, but the smell isn't! :/
 I swear, it's so pretty there but the bay smells. :/ It's tolerable, but it would be better if it just smells like sea! HAHA!
Wouldn't it be nice to chill and read with this view? ;))
Dress: Twenty One (?) || Bag: Bubblish Shop || Flats: Cotton On

I am not really sure if the name of the dress is really Twenty One. I bought it at  a bazaar last December in WTC. I'm too lazy to check it right now haha!
This was after the whole ceremony! It was too hot! The back of the dress is so pretty, right??
Krizza graduated from the Far Eastern University where she took up Human Resource Development Management. 

Did I post too much photos? :P I hope everyone is having a great time. Whereever you are, whatever the weather is in your place! Lol

Your dresses are so beautiful.

Had a feeling the bay smells. they had a promo during the pyrolympics, na dinner in a yacht daw. Bibilhin ko sana, kaso naisip ko, diba mabaho dun? The yacht is probably enclosed... but still.

I was there a few days ago...and I was like ICE CREAM!!!! In every meal I really ordered Ice Cream. It's so hot in Manila noh?

I love your sister's dress! so chic and sexy. and congratulations to her for graduating! :)

Manila is definitely unbearably hot and humid these past few days. But I ain't complaining! The perfect weather to hit the beach and just laze around.

I don't believe writing really is a skill, it is more of a passion. It doesn't matter how well-written your blog posts are. What matter is if you were able to let your thoughts out and if you were able to impart your message to your audience. And I think you are doing good, actually. So, keep it up! :)

Thank you,Christeen! The dress was a really good steal for less than 500php!

And as for the bay, all we can do is hope and pray. Lol. And of course, not contribute to making it more stinkyy!

Hay nako. Super talaga! There sre times when I dont put anything on my face because it's useless, few minutes outside and your make up would melt haha!

This humid and hot Manila is better than flood and too much rain. There are just those times when the heat is unbearable!

And thanks! What you said means a lot!;)

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&#…
