My third PicoSure tattoo laser removal session was more of a reunion with the staff and Dr. Neil Oropeza. It was also a reunion with the familiar surgical lights, machines, Dr. Neil's Star Wars Lego collection you can't miss when you're heading towards the beauty...read more
Your skin is your body's largest organ. A healthy skin helps fight skin aging and other viruses. We all struggle to have glowing and healthy skin. For women, beauty is everything. And having a good skin care routine tells much about you. So how well do you know your...read more
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...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

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.
