About the diary
This blog is a reflection of my struggles to stay sober, creative and relevant for the past eight years. I deal with my very minor (perhaps imaginary) social anxieties by blogging about beauty products that I bought compulsively and conquering awkward feelings whenever I face the camera to share my own struggles with fashion, literature, traveling and motherhood.
It’s orgasmic to finally let go of my thoughts and live different lives. Adios. May you find solace in other realms of the universe.

I'm the type of person who buys everything online - from my shoes and beauty products to sports equipment and kitchen tools. It's not easy to buy imported and local beauty products here in the Philippines because they're mostly available in physical stores or some...read more
Rest in peace matte lipsticks, may you find solace inside my refrigerator (refrigerate your lipsticks at your own risk). I'm almost done with matte lipsticks and though I'm sometimes tempted to buy Kylie lipsticks every time I see Kylie Jenner's Instagram account,...read more
Raised in a world of sanitary pads, the thought of inserting a reusable menstrual cup inside my vulva was way too creepy with Hellraiser movie scenes playing inside my head – the Female cenobite speaking in a harsh voice and Pinhead torturing a willing victim, his...read more
I planned to stay sober last Friday but was confronted by the fact that I couldn't stay sober and alcohol and good music are meant to make you feel immortal for a day or two. Anne Sexton couldn't even stay sober. She talked to me in my sleep telling me I would live...read more
Korean cushion foundation products like AprilSkin Magic Snow Cushion are all the rage. The popularity of Korean soap operas gave way to the rise of Korean beauty products in the market. Admit it, we are all drawn to dewy Korean skin. Every girl in my generation...read more
I’m a wannabe blogger who loves the 90s and Dr. Martens, an annoying mother and a jealous fan of A.M. Homes.
