Blogapalooza Horizons 2.0

Blogapalooza Horizons 2.0

So glad I didn’t miss Blogapalooza Horizons 2.0: Charting the Uncharted this year! It was my third time to attend Blogapalooza. I was also at the Blogapalooza Horizons, held earlier this year, which was so different from my first Blogapalooza event last 2014. But I must say that the one held recently didn’t disappoint!

It was held last November 5th at the Versailles Event Garden & Tent at Novotel Manila. The place was legit Instagram-worthy; it was a step up from the previous venue. TBH though, since almost all of the booths were outdoors, it was such a struggle to roam around ‘cos, well, we live in the Philippines and that day was hotter than Chris Hemsworth!

Save Money on Health, Beauty, & Wellness

Full disclosure, this is a sponsored post. All thoughts and opinion are mine.

It’s really challenging to save money especially if you’re like me who wants a lot of stuff. Heh. If you’re a frequent reader here, you know that my main interests are on Health, Beauty, and Wellness. So I definitely tend to spend more on that and I don’t really mind. Of course, I want to achieve a better health; discovering beauty products and trends makes me happy; and I really want to learn how to live a stress-free life.

I have to admit, I can be an impulsive buyer and I may or may not have hoarder tendencies. I know it’s not healthy and sometimes I really regret buying some stuff. The good thing is, since I’m aware of this, I can do something about it. I’m doing my best to change those bad habits, okay (so don’t judge). Heh. The key is knowing what you actually need and spending only on those things, so you can save money for more important things.

Speaking of saving money, one thing that I find helpful is using deals and coupons. Deal sites, like Groupon, are huge money-savers if you know how to pick the right deal and coupon that you can and will actually use. As always, do your research first and keep tab of the best and trustworthy deal sites. If you have the same interests as mine, check out these Health, Beauty & Wellness Groupons.

Manage Your Life with Taiwan Excellence Products

They say that if you want to achieve a healthy work-life balance, be a freelancer, if not your own boss. Ideally, it’s supposed to give you more time in your hands to do more besides your job. Personally, having a home-based work, I don’t really think that I’ve achieve a work-life balance. That’s probably my fault because I still focus more on work and the tasks I have to complete every day. Besides, more work means more money which means bigger budget for leisure, right? I know, that’s not a good excuse. In fact, I noticed that ever since I started using that excuse, I also started losing in life with lesser time for myself, friends, and family; poor health; and, basically, more stress. But do I really need to suffer in all of that just so I could possibly have a happier future? Do we all?

Nowadays, a lot of people find themselves searching for work-life balance. With demands from work, work-life balance appears to be an impossible feat, especially in today’s fast-paced lifestyle.

Stop stressing and start achieving work-life balance with Taiwan’s best brands that bear the Taiwan Excellence seal, assuring customers of the products’ superior quality. A perfect slice of work-life balance can be possible with the following tips and Taiwan Excellence’s sports and leisure products.

Product Review: Fashion 21 Two Way Cake Foundation

Fashion 21 Two Way Cake Foundation

Before I share with you my Fashion 21 Two Way Cake foundation review, let me tell you why I chose to try this product. So, I’m actually kind of a newbie when it comes to makeup and I have yet to find the perfect foundation that works for me. Recently, I’ve been interested in exploring local brands and I’m always on a hunt for good-quality yet affordable products. So it was a real treat when I got to try all the variants of the Fashion 21 Two Way Cake.

I’ve been familiar with this brand name since I first started dabbling on makeup but I realized that I don’t really know much about them. Though, a quick Google search led me to their website where I read their brief history. It’s nice to know that Fashion 21 Cosmetics has been around since 1985; decades of history and experience means they’re doing something good and right. It’s also worth noting that the company helps two (2) youth and Christian-oriented charitable foundations; talk about social responsibility!

Alright, sorry for babbling (as always, heh), I had almost a month (almost a week per variant) to try out all the variants of this product. And it’s just about time to tell you how it worked on me.

Althea Turns 1! Happy Birthday, Althea Korea!

0716_BdayPromo_mainbanner_MY

생일 축하합니다 Althea Korea! Nope, I haven’t turned into a fluent Korean (YET, haha!) but thanks to the Internet, I can wish my favorite K-beauty online shop a happy birthday, in Hangul! Hee. If you haven’t been following me on social media or watching my YouTube videos…what’s wrong with you?! LOL Kidding aside, I’ve been raving about Althea Korea ever since they launched their “webshop” to the Philippines. It is my one and only source of affordable and locally unavailable Korean beauty products. Why? Because they offer free international shipping and ships really fast!

Seriously, I love Althea and it is an honor to be invited on their first birthday celebration. YAS~
