Of Promises and Resolutions

The year is coming to a close and in the past week, all I could really think of are the promises I'm willing to make and the resolutions I plan to keep. Therefore, I came up with a list of my New Year's resolutions. Woohoo!
  1. Be punctual. It is no secret that I'm one of the worst people to set a certain time with. Seriously! Being on time has always been my Achilles' Heel. And for 2014, it's bound to be one of my biggest challenges.
  2. Work harder. Somehow it feels like 2013 has been a year of too much play for me. I would really like to change this by cancelling out procrastination and mediocrity in my life. Why settle for "Okay" when you can go for "Wow"?
  3. Make time for fitness. Another realization: no matter how much you diet, you will still be jiggly. I'm so tired of jiggling, guys!
  4. Travel more. I gotta cure this wanderlust. Starting with out of town trips, then upgrading to out of the country trips. I cannot wait.
  5. SAVE. SAVE. SAVE. In the middle of 2013, I got a job. Therefore a taste of earning money on my own. It feels good to not ask for cash from my parents, and being independent is a really great thing! But then after all the good times, the shopping sprees, and long cab rides, you think of when you're 30 and your savings account. How much money do you want to be in it?
And that's it for my New Year's Resolutions. Anyway, since I wasn't able to update this blog last Christmas, let me show you guys the best present I got from the universe:

The Most TMI Blog Post Ever

Hi y'all! I'm back from the dead - at least for now. I recently started working at this lovely start-up company called "BECAUSE, Inc". It's my first job and I must say that I'm really learning a lot. My unofficial title is "Social Media It Girl" slash-Graphic Designer-slash-Marketing Assistant. Really, everybody in the company (all ten of us) don't stick with our official roles, so to speak. Basically, we do a little bit of everything.

A quick intro to BECAUSE, it started last January and we focus on nutraceuticals, cosmeceuticals, nutricosmetics, and consumer health products. Too much? To put it simply, these are stuff that will definitely do you good. Don't we all want that?

Since I began working here, I became more conscious about the stuff that I use for my body. Which leads me to the first product that we will be releasing: Saforelle!

Okay, let me get this straight - I'm not really the type of girl who stands in front of the feminine wash section of the grocery, trying to decide which one to buy. Because guys, let's face it - as long as it's clean, we're (girls) good with it. But then I found out that these feminine washes in the market right now aren't really safe for everyday use. It makes you super dry down there which can lead to itchiness, and then *GASP* infection. Now who would want that?

What's great about Saforelle is that it's so gentle that you're good to use it everyday - it's clinically proven by French doctors, worry not. It also has burdock - a plant that has an anti-itch formula. I can attest to this because I have tried this on my feet when I had a slight rash (it's not just for your vajayjay) just to see if it really works. Lo and behold, two minutes after washing with Saforelle, the itch went away. I promise!

I know, I know. Who writes about their feminine washes? But just know that these things are important, too! Nothing to be ashamed of.

Product Features:

  • Specifically formulated for everyday use
  • Made with Burdock extract
  • Formulated by medical experts
  • Manufactured in France
  • Supported by clinical studies (AC Nielsen Data 2011)
  • Contains no soaps or parabens
Where can you grab your bottle of Saforelle? You can find this premium product in leading supermarkets nationwide (e.g Robinsons, Rustans, Shopwise, as well as pharmacies such as Mercury Drug, and South Star) We'll be releasing this amazing French product to the market this coming October so you better hang tight.

This may or may not be my first ever review in this blog.

The Perfect Song for This Kind of Weather

Right off of their latest album "Capacities", Parks has immediately captured my heart. Of course Indak will always be there stepping on my heart with its lyrics, and Turn It Well never fails to make my spirits soar. But this song is just perfect. There is no other way to describe it, really.

Yesterday I was walking around Greenbelt by my lonesome while the rain is pouring cats and dogs and I thought that "Hey, this is the perfect weather for some Up Dharma!", so I went through my iPhone and chose  song-above right away.

Guys, I'm serious! LISTEN. TO. IT. And be ready to fall in love and get your heart broken in a span of more or less five minutes.

Venir Avec Moi

It's been a while since I decided to become productive-slash-creative. In college, we do it because it's a requirement, this time I just challenged myself. Contests aren't really my thing because I'm very insecure with my capabilities as an artist, but then again we all have different styles, right? Besides, I'm very broke as of the moment, I need the cash.

So I'm going to have to ask for not even five minutes of your time to vote for my entry on talenthouse.com.

All you gotta do is click on this link and vote via Facebook, Twitter, or BOTH if you're feeling generous. ;)

Thank you in advance! xx

It's a Girl Thing

Assuming that most of the people who visit my blog are girls / ladies / women, here is a post that may (or may not be) interesting for you.

The other day, I was on the phone with David, talking about random stuff like we always do, when all of a sudden, I caught a glimpse of my desk and how messy it was. Yes, I'm that kind of girl who has a messy room, but I know where things are placed. It also happens that I was semi-arranging my make up kit and realized how much make up I own - most of them I barely use anymore. So I decided to do a blog post on my make up! Yay (nay?)!

Say hello to my messy table.

Most of my make up. The ones that I use, at least.

My cheap yet nice make up brushes.
