Product Review: Biore UV Perfect Bright Milk SPF 50 PA++

It is common knowledge that wearing sunscreen or any face products that has SPF (such as BB creams and CC creams) is important. Especially these days when the ozone layer is thinning and more harmful UV rays produced by the sun can penetrate through the earth, wearing sunscreen or the likes should be done religiously. If you don't wan to end up with skin cancer, early wrinkle formation, development of sun spots and hyperpgmentation, you should make it a habit to wear sunscreen and/or similar products.

Travelogue: Universal Studios Japan (Wonderland, Amity Village, Wharf)

I promise this is going to be the last of my Universal Studios Japan posts. I had a really great time here and I do wish to go back (not as much as I want to go back to Kyoto though). We weren't able to experience the Biohazard attraction which I am pretty sure is worth the hours of queue so I do hope there is a next time.

I am already 27 years old but going to amusement/theme parks never gets old for me. When I travel, one of the places I always put in our itinerary is an amusement/theme park. There is something about these places that reaches to my inner child. Even my mom had a wonderful time here so it shows that such places transcends all demographics. Whether you are a child or a child-at-heart, going to an amusement/theme park will always be worthwhile. When you find yourself going to Osaka, make sure to include Universal Studios Japan in your itinerary and I guarantee a memorable experience not just for kids but for adults as well.

Cold Weather Vacation: Dresslink Wishlist

One of the reasons why I love traveling is because of the weather. Some people dream of tropical climate all year round but when you’ve lived in a tropical country your entire life, this climate becomes dreary. Sometimes I live in a place where I can experience 4 seasons. I love cold temperature and I enjoy forested areas. I wish for sweater-weather and layering most of the time. I guess humans really are insatiable; we crave for what we don’t have and find it difficult to appreciate what we have. Though we do have elevated areas here where we can experience cold temperature, the overall feel is different when you go to a different country. This is exactly why I am so excited for my next travel. I will not go too far and the country does not experience snow. But it is a place that is definitely cooler than the Philippines.

Travelogue: Universal Studios Japan (Hollywood and New York)

Sunglasses: Jellybean | Dress: Topshop | Sneakers: Stradivarius 
Hairbow: Forever 21 | Tote bag: from KL

I will segregate my Universal Studios Japan posts according to sections inside the theme park. I took so much photos that one blog post is not enough for all of it. I tried to narrow it down to a few pictures but it's just too difficult to choose! I went back to being a 5-year-old wandering around the theme park wide-eyed. Everything about the theme park is picture-worthy: the infrastructure, the food, the items, the people. It was a struggle to stop from continuously clicking my camera.

Product Review: Touch in Sol Corean Complexion Cream (CC Cream)

I am one of the millions of women out there who are religious users of BB creams. Ever since I learned about them, I have always wanted to get my hands on this holy grail product. The first one I ever tried was a sample from Missha (M Perfect Cover) and I fell in-love. It was that good that even when at the time I was a poor college student, I saved my allowance just to buy a bottle. Alas, my allowance wasn't enough so I opted for the Maybelline BB cream. It was super inexpensive and did a decent job. Throughout the years of my discover and journey with BB creams, so many other products that claim to be even better than BB creams came sprouting here and there. CC creams were all the rage a couple or so years ago. And then DD creams also made an appearance to the market which only a handful were able to pick up. I have never tried the latter and I don't know really know what brands make them and where I can get them. But because many people prefer CC creams over BB creams and the saleslady at Banila Co was even telling me their CC cream is their top selling product, my curiosity ballooned and I thought I just had to get one. While shopping in Sasa KLCC Suria, I stumbled upon this Korean brand I was not very familiar with. I thought the packaging was gorgeous and it wasn't that expensive. Most of the time, when I wan to try a brand out I always go for either a lip product or a face product. The packaging of the CC cream caught my attention the most so I decided to try it. I can't say CC creams are better than BB creams with just this one alone but I can say that I do like CC creams on days when you don't want coverage and want to let your skin breath but you still want the benefits of BB creams.

Travelogue: Universal Studios Japan (Wizarding World of Harry Potter)

As a member of the generation who grew up with Harry Potter, going to Universal Studios was a dream come true. Actually, this entire trip is a fulfillment of a childhood dream. I was captivated by Japan mostly because of anime and manga but I was even more excited to visit the country when the Wizarding World of Harry Potter came alive. Everything about this trip is a manifestation of all my dreams. Now I can say that dreams really do come true.

Blogger Problem #4: The Pose

Top: Forme | Pants: Mango | Shoes: Melissa | Bag: Forever 21
Lips: Tarte Amazonian Lip Butter in Watermelon

When you have been blogging for a long time, you find yourself going blank the next time you face a camera. You just don't know what to do anymore. If you aren't wearing too many accessories or if you don't have anything around you that you can use a props, you are left with no choice but to keep on repeating poses. This may not bother some of you as you try to look as natural in pictures as you possibly can but for those who are camera-conscious like me, you resort to your "tried-and-tested" poses again and again and again. This then makes your pictures look the same. You may be wearing something different but you end up looking like all your other pictures because you are doing the same pose. The location might have changed but the overall appeal of the photos are the same.
