I stood by the bridge, overlooking España Boulevard and UST. I thumbed through the spaces that surround me, overtaken by the swooping sensation that I was so close to the world, yet so distant and… More
It feels so peculiar typing the word April on this page.
It was only yesterday when my eyes glittered at the sight of fireworks on New Year’s Eve; only yesterday when we welcomed the zodiac year with towering wishes for good health and good fortune; only yesterday when I blew my candles away and embraced a brand new age of existence.

It’s been ages since the last time I placed an order at Althea Korea. It was mostly because I was trying to use up my mountain pile of skincare stash before plunging into a new purchase. I take so much time going through all of my skincare products, thanks to my being so inconsistent with my routine haha.

Hey, you guys! I’m so glad to be back here in the blog. I wasn’t able to post reviews because my computer got infected with malware and I lost all my files. At the same time, my phone which I use most of the time to take photos also got broken. How tragic is it that my devices decided to give up on me all at once haha. But yeah, I’m gonna save that story for another blog post. Continue reading “Beauty Review: Innisfree Green Tea Cleansing Foam”
I’ve always been a no-makeup kind of girl. I mean, I’ve tried one too many times to learn how to apply foundation without turning my face into a melting cake or to draw my brows without looking like a total clown. But in the end, I still always end up with a funny face. I think I’m just more comfortable with no makeup on, or maybe I’m just plain lazy haha.

So what (mis)fortune has brought me here on the blog on a weekday, spending the hours before bedtime trying to come up with pretty much a nonsensical blog post about my recent online purchases? Ha! The truth is, there’s ten million sad things running through my mind right now and no matter how much I try to reinforce the fact that they are trivial and unimportant, the more I am taken aback by the way they smother me.

Hello everyone! Let me begin by saying how much I miss blogging and how much I hate the fact that I am not able to put up content on this blog consistently. But hey I am a firm believer that everyone can find a way to do what they love to do if they truly love what they do (wait what?) so here I am, cramming and crunching on a deadline, and squeezing a quick review on It’s Skin Power 10 Formula Whitening (WH) Effector in between the crazy schedule.

Hello everyone! I’m so glad to finally be able to sit down and write a beauty review today. Continue reading “Beauty Review: Skinfood Black Sugar Wash Off Mask”
For the longest time in my blogging venture, I have never felt the urge to post any of those “life update” entries where people share the latest stories about their life, mostly because I believe that I do not owe anybody an explanation for my life and that nobody really cares about what’s really going on.
All of us look back to a certain time in our lives, seeking for the same turbulence of the New Year celebration and trying to relive the excitement we once had as a child, but finding instead that all of our attempts only lead us to a place where it is silent and calm.
Welcome to the world of adulthood.
Nothing breaks my heart every end of the year than parting with my beloved planner.
One thing I know for certain is that the holidays in the blogging world is never complete without blogmas, a special blogging tradition featuring Christmas-themed blog posts which usually run from the first of December up to Christmas Day. Continue reading “All I Want for Christmas”

We all have our shortcomings in life and mine is that I’m always unwilling to invest in an effective (however expensive) eye cream despite the fact that caring for the eye area is one of the most important aspects of skincare routine.

It’s Sunday and I have plenty of time on my hands so I figure I am going to post a blog award today. Honestly, I miss writing these kinds of posts and I miss spending time with people in this blogging community. And since I have some free time today, I’m gonna catch up on these blog awards. Thanks soobxblog for the nomination even though I am months behind haha. Continue reading “The Inspirational Blogger Award”
But even in the retreat of words, even in the absence of expression, the throbbing pulse of my thoughts pound me down like a hammer to an iron nail. So here I am, struggling to compose letters into words, words into sentences, and finally, sentences into a sensible set of ideas, obsessions, sadness, and tears.
