Baguio Day 1

Hey everyone! I am sorry for not being able to visit your blogs. I just got back from a short trip with my family. I love the cold weather in Baguio, but really, I love going to the beach more! Okay, I don't think it's right to complain. :P So anyway, just like any other vacation blog entries, I'm going to bombard you with photos! Here we go. 

First things first. We left Manila last Friday and we checked in at Recedencia Alekzandra. It's decent transient home with two rooms (5 beds) and a bathroom. The kitchen has the cooking utensils that you might need if you want to cook.
What I love about this transient home is that it's kind of country inspired. Plus, all rooms has a 'balcony view'/ Lol. 
And here's the view at our 'balcony' :P
 Here's how it looks inside. Nothing fancy, really. And... That's my father. We took a nap first before exploring the city of pines! 
Oh, wait. I did not take a nap. I curled my hair! 
First stop was the Botanical Garden. Of course, we were greeted by these Igorots.
Father is not amused. LOL

 After going to Botanical Garden, we went to Wright Park then we also visited The Mansion
BROTHER is not amused. LOL
Seriously, what is it with taking photos that piss off men? What?? Whyyy?? :)))

We were supposed to go Camp John Hay and Mine's View Park on our first day but we were all so tired and hungry and sleepy. And we needed use the restroom, so we decided to just eat at SM, head back to the Transient home and rest again for a while.
After resting for a bit, we decided to visit the Lourdes Grotto and said our prayers. :)

I think ending our first day at the Lourdes Grotto was the perfect way to cap off the night. It was so tiring and exhausting to climb up the stairs, but it was worth it. I needed that time at the grotto. :)

So basically, that's it for our first day. We actually went to Burnham Park after our visit to the grotto but I'm having a separate entry about that Park!

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&#…
