Christmas is my favorite time of the year. I love everything about it from putting up the Christmas tree, baking treats, to gift giving. I especially love finding a special gift for my friends and family and giving them something that they normally wouldn’t think about getting themselves. I also like to give gifts that […]

Makeup Bag Beauty Editor

I love reading articles online or in a magazine that talks about makeup and beauty products. I’m pretty nosy about what other people use, especially from beauty editors. Beauty editors to me are like doctors, they always get asked to diagnose skin concerns and for their product recommendations. I’m one of those people. In my […]

All-time beauty products

Believe it or not, I actually love make-up and have become quite adept in applying makeup thanks to friends and YouTube tutorials (my favorite is Lisa Eldridge).

7 New Hairstyles to Try this Fall

It’s been 1 year, 1 month and 15 days since I last had a haircut. The peril of experimenting with pixie hair and side shaved hair is that you have to enter a hair rehab. For someone who doesn’t know how to practice patience, I consider myself a saint for not letting temptations get in […]

Pregnancy-safe beauty products

You know the magical pregnancy glow that pregnant women are bestowed upon? Yeah, I did not get that. What I did get is angry hormonal acne.
