Even before I had my skincare obsession, I was in love with makeup first. Nothing was (still is) more satisfying than swatching lipsticks on the back of my hands and just looking at the colorful displays with heart eyes. My first memory of makeup was watching my late aunt apply her lipstick before going to work. Something in that simple scene struck me. And so my love story with makeup began.
Over the years that I’ve been freelancing (LOL, as if I’m a veteran already), I’ve shared some tips and techniques to survive in the freelancing world. I’ve also laid the common pros and cons on the table for those who are thinking of entering freelancing but are not sure what’s in store for them. It’s easy to say that freelancing is chill because you can basically work anywhere – in your house, in a coffee shop, in a park, even on vacation. But that’s just one of the perks of freelancing. When it comes to the cons, they could be […]
Last Friday, August 18, I was invited to attend the Great Escapes Travel Fair in Glorietta 2 (Palm Drive). Jhanzey, a good friend and fellow blogger, sent me an invite though she couldn’t make it at that time because of work. Jhanzey, if you’re reading this, I’m sure you would have enjoyed it! But I’ll let the photos do the talking. 🙂 It was a really cool event because I actually discovered a lot of local brands that have quality goods. They’re also reasonably priced, so you’d know they’re not ripping you off. I walked around several times to make […]
“You should be spending as much time doing your skincare routine as you would do your makeup.” I don’t know who said that or if that’s a real quote, but I read that somewhere. Anyway, let me tell you something about myself. I love makeup. I love playing with makeup. I love discovering the different ways that I can experiment with colors while making myself look pretty. Men will never get it, but I’m sure some of us consider makeup as art.
Do you remember when I introduced PeraSwipe App in a previous blog post? It’s this all-in-one lock screen platform for Filipino smartphone users, specifically for Android phone users. If you haven’t read it yet, here’s the link to that write-up. And back then, I promised that I’ll write another blog post, this one more detailed, the next time. So here it is! (If you haven’t downloaded the app yet, do give it a try. Use my ID when you sign up: thebaeblogs) So, let’s get on to it! How did I find the PeraSwipe App after trying it out? What are the […]
*** I’m an introvert, that’s pretty obvious. And no, it doesn’t mean I’m actually scared of people. I just choose who to engage with. I know people say you should take a break from social media every now and then – and trust me, I believe that and I also do that sometimes – but for me, personally, social media helped me hone my communication skills in ways I never thought I could. I can’t live without my phone because it allows me to have a life in some ways. My phone is very important to me, suffice to say. […]
When I first visited the National Museum, I was ecstatic. Never in my my life did I even aim to go there. Maybe because none of us in my family strongly felt about art, specifically towards historical paintings. Maybe because we frequented malls more than museums. Maybe because I had no one to go with. Or maybe because, out of a shallow reason, I didn’t know how to go there or where it was even located. So I never went. But during the first few days of our dating phase, I learned that Jec is a huge fan of […]
I have a friend who is a frustrated lawyer. Let’s call him James. James has a passion for politics, law, government, and the like. His Facebook account could be a proxy for Facebook news pages because of the abundance of news updates he posts on a daily basis. James breathes and lives politics. His genuine interest in the field has led him to follow prominent figures in the industry and to continuously gain knowledge through and from those people. Ask him anything about any current events happening in the country and he mostly has his own opinions on them. Like […]
