Kicking Off 2016

I wanted to blog about something else but I decided to post this instead! It feels more appropriate to blog this now, because if not, I don't know I would still want to in the future. 

Our company decided to throw a Kick Off Party. To be honest, I was really hesitant to go because 1) Theme is Coachella and now that I gained weight, I know the disappointment that I would be facing when trying on outfits, 2) I felt like it would be a boring one (no alcoholic drinks allowed! lol) and 3) I just didn't feel like going.

Well, it was a good thing that I went because the set up was nice and I had a little fun with my work friends. And of course, I had fun prepping myself!

 1) MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium  2) Essence Eye PrimerDark 3) Estee Lauder Zero Smudge Lengthening Mascara  4)NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray 5)Smash Box Blush/Bronzer  6) Clinique Stay Matte Oil Free Foundation in Sand 7) MAC x Brooke Shields Eyeshadow 8) Nichido Eyeshadow in Gold Foil  9)  Essence Eyebrow Pencil 10) Sleek Black Gel Liner 11) MAC Stone 12)MAC Strange Journey

These make up photos were just taken with my phone, not of best quality, I know. :P I initially wanted to go for the bright red-orangey lipstick but I felt like it could be a better look if it's more earthy. Instead of completely wiping off Strange Journey, I topped it off and mixed it with Stone. I think it's better. What do you think?
Strange Journey + Stone 

If I were still thin, I would have chosen a white outfit. HAHA. I still love how I looked. I didn't look like over-prepared but not out of theme as well. I knew that teammates are not the type who would go all out on themed parties like this. LOL. And the most important thing is, I felt really comfortable with what I was wearing! 

Work Friends
The venue was really nice but we wish they allowed booze there! People started leaving immediately after the program. No one wanted to stay because there was really nothing left to do.

This is the first time in a very long time that I actually blogged about work related event. I don't remember blogging anything about work last 2015. I decided to post this because it's getting more and more challenging lately.  A lot of people that I started with in the company had left and more and more are planning to do the same. 

I really hope and pray that 2016 will be better. I really do not want to leave and start with a new company again.

You should be confident with your body! So what if you gained weight? You're still pretty, you know. :) And I love the color of your lips. I agree the darker lip color looks better because it suits the bohemian theme. :)

Such a fun theme for a get-together! Loving that Stone lippy on you - the color is fab!

Looking good Ish and your earthy toned lippie looks so fab! I love it too!

love lots,

There really are times when I feel soooo good about myself but there are also times when I can't help but get affected by those Ang Taba Mo na comments. Haha

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&#…
