It's not everyday that you'll see local beauty brands lasting for years in this country. Since a lot of people still prefer buying foreign brands, I'm amazed as to how these local brands survive. (Thank god for beauty bloggers!). Take this one for example: Snoe Beauty Inc.

I've first known Snoe a few years ago after seeing their stall at Robinson's Galleria. Initially, I thought they were just another brand from a different country until a friend of mine mentioned that they were actually made by a Filipina. Sadly though, during that time, I wasn't much into make-up and decided to just buy their Hard Candy lip color Strawberry Shake, mainly because I found it cute. It was a set of 3 different colored lipsticks that can be bought as a key chain. It was also being sold at an affordable price!

Adventures in BGC: The Mind Museum and a lot more!

I'm not the type to tell anyone of my birthday, though I do like considering March as my month. I've always preferred to celebrate on my own or at least buy myself things that I've always wanted to buy or go places that I've always wanted to go to or hang out. This year, I decided to celebrate my day by visiting The Mind Museum. It's considered as a first-class Interactive Science museum in the Philippines. Ever since it opened years ago, I've always wanted to go there but sadly, it's either I don't have the money or the time to do so. But last month (since it's already April right now) I told myself that I have to go there by March, whatever happens, my plan will push through!

And lucky me, it did!


Catching up with Ramen

A few weeks ago, a friend of ours told us that she will be visiting Manila during the upcoming weekend. She's originally from Nueva Ejica so it's not everyday that we get the chance to see her, plus, she also just came back from a trip to Vietnam and was excited to see me and my boyfriend. So we decided to meet up and eat out at Shang.


GIVEAWAY: Happy 5th Anniversary @The Beauty Junkee!

I've only started blogging again this year (despite making this site last year).  But, this is the first time that I've blogged about things that I haven't thought of writing: beauty items and cosmetics. To begin with, I'm really not that interested in those things unless I needed it for cosplay. Still, I guess there will always be a time in a girl's heart that eventually, they will fall to the magical world of make-up. Now, I'm getting more and more addicted to the point of wanting to try almost everything. But, one thing that I've learned in this field is that one shouldn't go on buying everything that she sees. I'm scared that I might buy the wrong make for me, I'm an oily-faced girl and I don't want to go out looking like an oiled frying pan just because I bought the wrong make for my face.

So before buying anything, I started reading other beauty bloggers. Seriously. They are very, VERY helpful.
