An open letter for the person who unconditionally loved me

10 Nov

Your message just made me burst into tears. And as I am writing you this, they just wont stop. sorry for everything. I don’t know when I’d be able to forgive myself. Really.

This letter might not be as constructed as you expect it to be coz I’m just writing from what I’m feeling so bear with me.

I still remember me bumping into your station, us going places in search of things we both crave for, us travelling to anywhere we desire.. everything. Now, I don’t have that one person who’s always there. It’s like losing my brother, losing my bestfriend, losing my otherhalf. And it’s heartbreaking. It breaks me but I need to let you go, coz if I don’t, you won’t find that person you deserve. Honestly, I still think that you’re my other soul, my counterpart. I’m still wondering if we’ll ever be the same again. If I’ll be able to bring back everything that made me who I am before, that worthy person who’s same as you. I am not proud of myself, that’s the truth. That’s why I always take the blame for anything and everything that’s making you feel bad, sad, depressed. It’s like I always get scarred for every hurtful truth or not ,that you speak of me. And as I told you, I can’t take that anymore. The thought of it recurring is draining me. I know that some of it you really mean, and some you don’t. But still, they hurt.

I don’t want to say goodbye, but rather see you again. And I hope that when we do, you’ll still see that girl you fell for. That I still have that smile that spells happiness, that cheer that puts a smile on your face, and that enthusiasm and wit that you love. Everyday, I’ll think of how you are, who’s with you, are you better, who’s taking care of you. I know that you’ll find someone better than me, even if it’s not now, but you will. As for me, I don’t think that I’d be able to find someone who’s better than you. I’m gonna say this again, YOU ARE ONE IN A MILLION. And I am this stupid to let you go, that I know.

You take care and if you need me, please remember that I am here for you. I will miss our smart conversations, our silly jokes, our surf trips, our local and out of the country travels, your family and pamangkins, YOU. I’ll miss EVERYTHING. But I know that this difficult decision will somehow unravel a better day for us both. And I am looking forward to that.

Though it seems like I’m always the one who leaves you, even if you don’t believe it, you are always here in my heart. And no one will ever take your place in it.



Shu Uemura Lifestyle Workshop

18 Mar

This is my first workshop ever. I was hesitant at first to attend but, what the heck, I want that 10%off. It was basically just an hour workshop hosted by Internationally Accredited MUA Patrick Alcober, discussing the basic skin care routine and a summer-inspired make up. It was very informative and what I love about it is that I got 10%off on my purchase! Thanks Shu Uemura!

Of all the products they had ustry, my personal fave is the Instant Glow. It just gives you that radiant look with a healthy feel. It’s non-greasy and is very light weight.


Another product that I’m intrigued about is the POREraser. It evens out the skin and makes it more refined. The only downside I would say is the packaging. It’s hard to control and often times you would have alot of product in your hand. I would definitely try this but I still need to consume my MAC Prep & Prime Face Protect SPF 50.


Here are some of the pictures I took during the workshop. 🙂

What’s fun in this kind of event is that ladies have the chance to try EVERYTHING!!!

Since Shu Uemura is known for their signature cleansing oils, I’ve decided to give it a try. I wear makeup everyday so a good cleanser is a must have. I only got the 150ml of the Fresh Pore Cleansing Oil for the meantime. But if results are great and my skin loves the oil, I would definitely purchase the 450ml bottle. The 150ml retails for P1750 while the 450ml is for P4000. Oh, I had a bonus cupcake and samples of the Red Juvenus. *sweet*

Wonder Corrector

7 Jul

Hi Ladies! I’ve recently learned about this incredible line of organic skin treats, Venus and Mars and I would want to share my personal experience with their products. They are the first Emu oil skin care line here in the country. So for all of you, who would like to go all organic, hope this blog help you decide.

BTW, I have sensitive-oily skin and very much prone to breakouts. It was a pain in the ass trying different cleansers, foams and cosmetics that would match my skin type. There was even a time that I had to consult a dermatologist and have my face pricked. Trust me, you wouldn’t want that. Not only because consultations and treatments are pricey, but also because it is damn painful. So with the hope of finding my perfect match, I stumbled across V&M’s page. Intrigued about what they claim as all organic and natural, I tried some of their most well known products and decided to make a review on them.

I saw this Tonic Liquid Concealer and it really got my attention.

Buying cosmetics online is a NO-NO to me so it’s either I go to Mod Lei in Katipunan or just not buy at all. I was skeptical when I saw this especially when the description mentioned that it matches ALL skin tones given that it comes in one very light shade. Good thing V&M was participating in the I’m Shoe in Love bazaar so I thought why not drop by their booth to verify their claims. And so I did. I put into test their Tonic Liquid Concealer and I can’t believe that it easily blended with my morena complexion. Not only that it did hide those under eye circles but it also did add a healthy glow to my eyes. It doesn’t leave that heavy feel and it’s non-sticky. The only thing I noticed is that it only does light coverage, so if you have REALLY dark under eye circles, you need to have the application thicker. My verdict, 4 out of 5 stars.

If you’re looking for a perfect highlighter, my next blog’s for you. Will be doing a review on V&M’s Subtle Sexiness Finishing Powder. (I personally this )
