The Woodman’s Head | Restaurant + Food Review

It seems like I’m making a habit of reviewing all the restaurants/bars I’m going to recently, but it’s also a great way to challenge myself in writing something that’s not my forte. So without further ado, I give you another restaurant/bar review! A week ago, We Are Choosy Beggars held a gig in The Woodman’s Head. It’s a somewhat swanky bar in the stretch of P. Burgos in Makati City. I’ll have to admit – my first impression when I went inside was that it was a little intimidating. I guess it was because it’s not my crowd, but the […]

September Accomplishments

September wasn’t eventful for me, goals-wise. I’d like to think that whenever I get a full-time job, I zoom in on that and tend to forget everything else. Or at least, have lesser time for other things since a typical full-time job entails 8 hours of continuous work per day for 5 days in a week.

My ‘Anxiety’ Story | #WorldMentalHealthDay

#WorldMentalHealthDay was just around the corner and I’m just about to write my entry on it today. On October 10, I witnessed a lot of my online friends posting about #WorldMentalHealthDay. I honestly didn’t know such a day exists, but I’m glad it does. I saw close acquaintances and strangers tweet their thoughts, share their own experiences and recovering tips, post their stories on Facebook, and basically celebrate the day.

Life Lately | Vol. 19

I have so many feelings right now and yet I want to have none.  I don’t find my thoughts deserving of either a 280-character tweet or intentional publication on my social media accounts so I’m writing a blog post instead. Because this is non-disruptive media and you don’t really need to read this. But if you already are, then.. hello.

DANS Restobar | Restaurant + Food Review

DANS Restobar is an isolated restaurant and bar in the stretch of Shaw Boulevard that you’d never expect to love but will. It’s best to go there via car but if you’re commuting, it’s a walkable distance from Starmall. From the pictures, it looks like a huge bar that can house a good capacity of customers, but in the flesh, it’s more intimate and compressed – not that it’s an issue, though!

Maybelline Inti-Matte Nude Lipsticks | Swatch + Review

For a whole week, I longed for Maybelline Inti-Matte Nude Lipsticks. I kept stopping myself because I recently did a makeup inventory and saw the tubes I have yet to finish. But alas, I gave in. And it was the best decision I ever made. The lipsticks were so good!  Disclaimer: This is my last lipstick hoard for the year. If any of you finds me lingering in the beauty section of the department store, harshly drag me away. Thank you.

BLK Cosmetics PH Lipsticks | Swatch + Review

Oh, it’s a good year for cosmetics, that’s for sure. Women went crazy when Rihanna launched Fenty Beauty. Renown brands continue to collaborate with various celebrities and/or makeup artists. In the local scene, lipstick formula are improving and shades are expanding to give way to different skin tones.  To make things crazier, on September 20, 2017, Anne Curtis and her team officially launched BLK Cosmetics, the actress/host/model’s very own line of PETA-approved and cruelty-free makeup for uncomplicated beauty, as its tagline suggests. Of course, I was one of the many who went gaga over this new makeup line.
