Para sa mga hirap gumising sa umaga, NASHaan na ang COFFEE niyo?
Para sa mga nahihirapan sa buhay, NASHaan na ang karamay niyo?

NASH COFFEE. I came across this advertisement on their page where Diane Medina stars and claims that as an artista whose always on-the-go, she needed NASH COFFEE to keep her going?

My version would be 'Being a law student na laging puyat, stressed at nahihirapan, NASH COFFEE SHOULD BE IN MY SYSTEM. Kasi diba NASH maganda ang umaga 'pag NASH ang kasama, dahil NASH maganda pag NASH ang karamay sa buhay. HAHAHA!' 😁

In my everyday struggle, I needed something that would help me go through every hardship---hehe, like the hardship of staying up all night, waking up everyday and going through readings. Moreso, as a law student, I needed a karamay from all the stresses that I go through. So what better 'karamay' could there be in my everyday struggle, dba, NASH COFFEE?

COFFEE in general is integral for us to start the day. For most, without coffee, the day would be dry and less exciting. Most could not even function without coffee...ehemmm.

That is why, I always have a go-to coffee especially in the most trying moments of my life (like waking up everyday...hehe)!

NASH Coffee, I believe, would be the best jump start drink to start and face the day. Briefly, NASH COFFEE is delicious and has the right amount of caffeine that keeps us going despite the 'puyat' that we go through everyday. It is yummy that it even sets the mood right whenever I feel stressed. It also has the appropriate flavors that match with my frequent mood swings.

To expound, NASH COFFEE comes in three flavors: AROMA, BROWN and WHITE. Each variant is guaranteed delicious for having the perfect mix of coffee, sweetness, and milk. Each is perfect for any time or mood of the day.

For instance, the NASH AROMA.
It is perfect for those who woke up after a very long night. The aroma and taste would give you that boost of energy you needed for the day. It provides that perkiness and energy we need.

It is perfect for every after meal. Like a soft dessert, white coffee is subtly sweet and perfect as an after meal drink. It could also be perfect as an afternoon drink during coffee breaks.

Finally, NASH BROWN.
It is perfect for chilling on rainy evenings or after a long day at work, and you just want to chill at home, this coffee is perfect. It has that rich, sweet but lightly bitter taste that we all look for in coffees.

As you see, NASH COFFEE suits us any time  and mood of the day. It not only establishes NASH creating a 'NASH MAGANDA NA UMAGA' but more importantly, it creates a 'NASH MAGANDANG BUHAY ARAW-ARAW.'

It goes to show that whether we are stressed or not, tired or not, NASH COFFEE is always perfect for us. NASH COFFEE is always there for us. It is the perfect 'KARAMAY SA BUHAY.'

I find NASH COFFEE to be the perfect partner in crime for all my puyat-nights, mornings in school, and stresses in life.

So when people ask me, HOW DO YOU GET THROUGH EVERYDAY? I would just answer, NASHaan ang COFFEE ko? NASH COFFEE lang, sapat na.

Beauty MNL Haul # 2

Not a sponsored post.

Last month, had a 'free delivery' promo. The above photo are my haul. 💕

What I think about my haul after a month-long of use are the following:

1. Biore UV Aqua BB Cream

I like how light the product is when applied to the face. It's not heavy, yet the coverage is semi-full. It satisfactorily covers light imperfections of the skin. I like that it doesn't leave my skin dry. It has a semi-matte finish and feels very hydrating. Plus, it's very affordable. If my memory serves me right, it only costs around P300. Value for money!

Overall Rating: 8/10

2. Skin Genie Lip and Cheek Tint in Rose Pink/Tan Brown

The tint is very cheap. If I remember correctly, I bought each for P80. Cheap yet it satisfactorily serves its purpose. It stains the lips for about 4-5hours. Good enough! However, I don't like the fact that it leaves my lips, errrm, dry? I don't know if it's the product or it's just my lips being sensitive.

I have not found any lip tint that doesn't leave my lips dry. This happens only in lip tints though. Whenever I use lip tints, I get chapped lips after, unlike when I use lipsticks, lip balms and lip cremes. That's why it's frustrating kasi mas gusto ko sana i-everyday ang liptint. Or sa mga lakad sa kanto lang. (Let me know if you know a good lip tint that I could try.)

Overall Rating: 7/10

3. Faith. Hope. Love. Cucumber Hydrating Mist

I like it's scent and that it's refreshing when applied. However, I find that the product leaves me oily during the day. That's why I usually spray this only at night when I just finished washing my face and have gone through all my rituals, and right before sleeping. I use this as a moisturizer aside from my usual moisturizer. It's like the finishing touch of my skin care regimen. After applying and when it's finally dry, I feel my skin tight, smooth and cool. Plus, the product is also very affordable!

Overall Rating: 7/10

 The Jergens Age Defying lotion came as a freebie.
Over all, I am very satisfied with my haul. Yaaaay me! 👌👌

Thank you 2016. Bring it on 2017!

When 2015 left, and 2016 happened my basic mantra was to #TakeRisks #LiveBoldly .

It was a good mantra to follow.
With that, I started out the year fine. It was fun. Lots of parties, adventure, and spontaneous road trips. In other aspects, I was more outspoken, aggressive, brave and positive. I feared less, and let go of 'what ifs' more. But not everything went quite well.

2016 was also a very challenging year for me.
For a large part of it, I had lots of painful and really sad experiences.
I lost two of my favorite aunts who is now with the Lord. One of them left in May and the other in November. (We missed you so much Aunt Betty and Aunt Remy.)
I also had experienced failure and defeat, and even went to a rough heart break. It was a rough year. For those who were there to witness it, I know you understand.

Looking back I really don't know how I got pass through it. It was difficult. Even academically speaking, I was struggling. Emotionally, I was striving to pull it all together.

But despite all that, 2016 was my year of DISCOVERY.
I discovered that I was strong, brave, and capable of hurdling giant obstacles. I discovered  that I wasn't weak, and that I was even smarter than I thought I was. I discovered I had family and friends to lean on---family and friends who did not leave me even if I was unbearable at the moment.

Yes, in 2016, I was awakened by harsh realities----that not everyone we meet are worth the time, and worth the sincerity we give them.
That not everything we want will happen. That not everything we aim for will be ours.

I learned it the hard way. I've even made LOTS OF MISTAKES along the way trying to fix them. But I realized, NOT EVERYTHING CAN BE FIXED.

2016 was harshly memorable.
To top it all off, I even spent my 23rd birthday alone in the boarding house preparing for an exam.

It was hard, but still, it was rewarding.
Rewarding in the sense that what I am today is my trophy dedicated to myself.
I became a whole new person. Someone more real, and wiser. Someone who appreciates beauty more after seeing all the bad things. Cliche as it may sound, 2016 molded me to become better.

Now you may think 2016 was a sad year for me.
It was difficult, yes. But sad? NO.

As a matter of fact, it was still amazing. It was a mixture of everything. It just went by so fast.
2016 could even make up to my list of favorite years. It was really something!

To be fair, I had wonderful memories.

1. 2016 was the year my youngest sister turned 18.
At Grand Menseng Hotel.

2. Mom and Dad's Get-Away (from us) Trip
HongKong -Macau Trip

3. I hosted and performed during the Conflicts of Law 2016

4. I had my first SUMMERFROLIC experience in Mati. Read here.


5. I experienced being a Paralegal Officer at Kiblawan during the May 9, 2016 elections. We were paid well that day. HAHAHA!

6. Finally resumed applying for the SSEAYP program. Unfortunately, I wasn't chosen. But it was fine. I was glad I reconnected with old friends and gained new ones. I hope I can apply again this year, and finally, be chosen.

7. For a LAW student, travelling is a rare opportunity. But thank God, I did. I got to travel for a short vacay to Bucas Grande, Sohoton, Surigao del Norte, and visit Banana Beach, Hijo, Tagum.

Banana Beach Resorts.


Sohoton Cove.

Jelly fish sanctuary.

8. Of course, #TTTProjectGiveBack2016 and #ExploreCateel Annual Year-End Experience. I'll write about it soon. But here are a few pictures.

Hello again, Aliwagwag Falls!

At Baybay Cream Sand Long Beach.

with old and new friends.

You see, 2016 was a very colorful year. I was so glad I witnessed and experienced it all. That I actually participated in life. It just shows that I wasn't just alive, but I was actually living, too.

Reviewing all that has happened, I have come up with a new mantra for 2017.

This 2017 will be my year!
I will move on from bad experiences and focus on making new happy ones! I will move on from heartaches, things and people who are not healthy to me and my life, and MOVE FORWARD. I will strive hard to excel and be better. I will let go of people who hurt me and focus on those who care for me.

I will focus on great things and will aim for bigger things. I will use all those that I have learned in 2016 to make 2017 an even better year.

More importantly, I will LET GO, AND LET GOD. This year, I will also focus on rekindling my faith and connection with God. This thought alone gives me strength that whatever 2017 has in store for me, I will be strong enough to face it.

This is me---ready for 2017. Looking forward to a better year! Always positive.

So, 2017, bring it on! *love love love*

My First BeautyMNL Haul

I'm a makeup enthusiast, but my problem is that I don't have much time to go on shopping or looking for new hauls.

Thank God for technology, everything now is ONLINE! Even makeup shopping can now be done online!

I love Online Shopping because of its convenience, that is why I really appreciate how useful is.

I appreciate how convenient and easy it is to access the site. Plus, beautyMNL is complete. It has everything, if not all, most of my makeup fantasies and needs.

Hence, when I had my first BeautyMNL shopping haul, I was so super excited I had everything documented. HAHAHA! :)

I got the package 5days after I placed my order online.

So...this is the packaging.

Let's look what's inside..

It's wrapped with a thick layer of bubble wrap to make sure that the stuff we ordered do not get ruined upon shipment...

So here are the stuffs I got...

The St.Ives Facial Scrub and the Tresemme shampoo and conditioner were freebies. Thank you! :)

My hauls are the Loreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation (Php600), Olay Toner (Php202), and Dove White Beauty Bar (Php48).

Aside from the usual stuff, I especially loved the Loreal Infallible ProMatte Foundation. I really wanted to buy the Foundation for a while now but I couldn't really find the time to purchase one because of my busy schedule. Good thing BeautyMNL sells this!

I got mine in the Golden Beige shade.

I don't have a fair complexion so I opted for a shade which I believe suits me. So, this one is Golden Beige. I must admit, this one is a tad bit darker than my skin color. It was chosen in error. Errr, not really a mistake; more like serendipity!

Fortunate accident, I loved it!
Super! No kidding. I loved how I mistakenly chose this shade!
Serendipity! I'll tell you why. But first...

I like this product because of a lot of things.

First, its packaging is very hygienic. The sponge is separated from the powder. Pls see video clip below.

Second, I like that it lives up to its reputation that it is long-lasting, has full coverage and is lightweight.

YES! It sticks to my skin as if it is my own skin. Plus, it covers the areas which are less pretty. Plus plus, it lasts for almost (not exactly) 16-hours. I like that I don't have to retouch every now and then when I use this product.

As I said though, this is a tad bit darker for me, that is why I use it also as a sort of bronzer. I use it in moderation for the rest of my face but for the edgy part or the parts which I like to be a bit darker, I use it alot...So it doubles for me as a bronzer.
Ever since I used this, I get compliments all the time. Stuffs like 'Hey, you look blooming/glowing' or like 'Did you slim down?'. I swear!
Serendipity, I say, that I discovered this use! :)

To rate this item, 1 being the lowest and 10 the highest, I'd give this one a 9! No joke! It deserves a 9. I love Loreal, in general, AND in specific,  I SUPER LOVE THIS INFALLIBLE PROMATTE FOUNDATION! :)

If you wanted to avail of this product, too, visit !
I know you'll find other more stuff to purchase, and you won't regret it.
They usually have items at a discount, so what else do you need more?

BeautyMNL is complete and convenient! Perfect, right? I can't wait for my next haul, and when I do shop again, I'll share it to you once more! yaaaay! <3 p="">

REVIEW: Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Liquid Foundation + Dream Satin Skin Two Way Cake

Disclaimer: This is not a paid post.

Hi, everyone!

This is my first ever official makeup review. Yaaaaay!

I have always wanted to do makeup reviews but I don't seem to have enough TIME and GUTS to do it. So, I usually end up sharing my thoughts about certain makeup products I use, only, through my social media accounts. However, by some divine intervention, I finally have decided to do one here in my blog. Excuse my work, by the way, I'm still a bit rusty.

I'm no makeup expert, but because I love makeup so much I usually have a 'few' things to say about certain products. 

To start, I'd like to share with you one of my favorite drugstore makeup brand, Maybelline.
I like their products because aside from being affordable, this brand delivers.

I'll be sharing with you my thoughts on Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Liquid Foundation and their Dream Satin Skin Two Way Cake. I will also share with you a little of my thoughts about their Maybelline Fit Me Concealer.

MAYBELLINE Dream Satin Skin Liquid Foundation

Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Liquid Foundation in B2 shade
The liquid foundation costs around Php499 and comes in a glass container with a pump. It contains SPF 24 PA ++, and it claims to provide satin smooth looking skin. Its description says it's long lasting, moisturizing and does not clog pores.

The consistency is very lightweight and 'blendable'. It spreads easily. I have mine in the shade of B2 which is a bit yellowish; great for girls who have yellow undertones.

When applied:

The product is very lightweight and has some dewiness to it, that when applied, it gives you that soft silky healthy glow.

I have a normal to dry skin type. So, personally, I like this kind of finish--- dewy and satin. It makes my skin look youthful. I'd probably use this on days that are less humid. Otherwise, if its humid,it might wear off easily and I'd always have to do touch-ups. Hassle!

I don't advise people who have oily skin to use this. Sorry, I don't think this product is for you.

With regard to coverage, I think it is only medium, not full. So to help cover those dark spots, pimple scars and eye bags, I suggest you still use concealer. OR, you just apply another layer of the foundation to get that full coverage.

 However, in the photos above, I used Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. I just dab the concealer on the target areas, and voila, you can't even see the dark pimple scars I have on my chin and forehead. Super magical item!

Here's a photo of my abused Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Deep Fonce.
Its writings are already erased. Sorry!
It is proof that it was loved, used and abused.

Moving on...

Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Two Way Cake

Maybelline Dream Satin Skin Two Way Cake in B5
The powder costs around Php399 and comes in this beige compact case with MAYBELLINE engraved into its cover. It contains SPF 32 PA +++, and claims to provide a non-cakey, ultra breathable satin skin finish that lasts all day.

In this review, I used the powder to set the liquid foundation using my Innoxa Kabuki brush.

I don't know how to describe it, but it's beautifully matte and satin at the same time. It's also very light on your face.

 In the video above, it worked perfectly as a setting powder. However, I think it would also work well on its own. It has a better coverage than the liquid foundation and I think it lasts longer. It's perfect for girls on the go, just like me.

I think this would also be the perfect foundation to use on humid days, as compared to the liquid foundation. Plus, those who have oily skin would definitely like this finish. This one is definitely for you, guys!

All in all, I liked the above-mentioned products. But I don't really agree that they'd last the whole day. Not in my case. You'd still have to do touch ups though, but not as often. Maybe an interval of 3-4 hours, depending on the skin type.

Here are a few vanity shots with both the liquid foundation and the two-way cake on:

Anyway, that's all for now.
Thank you for reading my review. I'd appreciate it if you leave me a comment on what you think about my first review.

Maybelline usually sell these items at a lower cost when on promo, so I suggest you should always be on the lookout for these promos. Good luck!
