Our last two days, before heading back home to sunny hot manila, was spent exploring the region of Mt. Fuji and Yokohama. Our 3rd morning brought gray skies, a little drizzle that soon turned to very light snowfall, which was nothing entirely exciting. Our tour guide warned us that the weather didn’t look ideal to see Mt. Fuji, but with high hopes we boarded our tour bus and embarked on a two hour bus ride towards our first stop: Gotemba.
After months of what seemed like a hiatus on my love for makeup, it has been reignited once again all thanks to a wonderful store called Sephora. After years and years of endless rumours about Sephora finally making its way to the Philippines, it finally came true early this year in the form of Sephora.ph.
They reached out to me asking if I was interested in working with them for a blogpost review. Excitedly I said yes. I mean, you know me, I love makeup. After a few nights of browsing Sephora.ph, going through brands, checking online reviews… I finally settled on products I wanted to try out. I also took the liberty of ordering products myself (ie. using my own money and my own account) just to experience Sephora.ph without the aspect of working with the brand directly.
Millennials get a bad rap for a lot of things, the older generation (and sometimes even those from our own) have thrown out words to describe as us lazy, spoiled, and entitled kids — but in any group, be it race, religion, and/or generation, a select few does not define the entirety. We hustle, we work hard to get where we want and we often shoot for the best and nothing less. Sure, sometimes we’ve no idea what we’re doing, but who ever does?
It’s a gloomy Friday. I’ve spent majority of my morning in bed under my sheets, just casually reading through s/AskReddit on my iPhone, only getting up for some breakfast. I had a bowl of vanilla flavored granola cereal with soy milk, both of which I bought from Healthy Options for a ridiculous price, just to see if a healthier breakfast, despite how expensive, will affect the way I feel the rest of the day. I’m currently trying to figure out the best diet for me — fruits? meats? no carbs? veggies? it all depends on what my body responds to and what makes me feel more energized throughout the day.
I’ve been MIA on my blog for quite some time now, and I’m fully aware of this. Life has been kind of weird lately, and feeling out of funk with blogging is not entirely new to me, but the past few weeks it’s like I never loved blogging in the first place. It’s weird. This morning, I decided to just open up my blog and write something, anything. I then realized that maybe it was time for another Life Lately post, just to keep you guys up to speed with what’s been going on. And already, just writing this blog post is making me realize why I loved blogging in the first place. It’s the few moments where I can just sit in total silence, and speak to you.
The second part of our 6 day stay in Paris, France last October 2015. A shoutout to my wonderful tito bobby & tita lou (family friends) who let us stay in their flat for the week, ultimately saving up a lot of our eurotrip budget. Watching this second vlog made me realize Gab and I really didn’t do a lot of touristy things and now we’re itching to go back and spend another week in the city of lights.
I like the brand B’lue Fully Alive because aside from it being a flavourful drink, they’re a fun brand that conceptualizes fun activities for their consumers. When they invited me to try their 360 photo booth, I had to say yes, and was even made more excited when I saw the previous videos done by other people via their Twitter page.
