COSMETOLOGIE 2013–There’s gonna be one!

Oh yes, Cosmetologie is the CLOSEST thing we can get to IMATS abroad. (But if you watched my vlog, our very own UMAP is cooking up something MUCH CLOSER TO IMATS THIS YEAR so that is even MORE exciting!) I am so glad there’s gonna be one this year! I was bummed when I didn’t get any notice last February (Cosmetologie usually happens around that time!) When I woke up this morning, I found this!

#1 On My List: Working from Home

Hi everyone!

In less than 2 weeks, I will already become a super full-time Blogger & Youtuber! It’s a BIG step finishing college, and an even bigger step starting life as an adult! I feel really blessed to already be ‘working’ since 2011, after just a year of starting my channel in Youtube and blogging (I started in the year 2010)! My “work” isn’t really that clear to most people I encounter. I find it simple yet complicated to explain! Perhaps doing a vlog about it would be more proper? I’ll definitely work on that if anyone’s interested!

Basically, I upload videos on Youtube every single day. May it be a makeup tutorial, a haul, a vlog or whatever, I do it everyday. That’s how dedicated and passionate I am. I find my job really fulfilling and fun. In connection to that, I have my blog wherein I post about the beauty videos that I do on my channel! It is where I post in-depth reviews with loads of photos and much more information about whatever it is that I featured in a particular video.

My work entails a WHOLE LOT of things. Filming all night long, vlogging, editing, shooting, etc… I invest in a lot of good lighting, cameras, equipment, and probably one of the most important tools that I NEED is HIGH SPEED INTERNET CONNECTION. Oh my goodness, I have gone through so much angry fits over intermittent internet connections & week-long disconnections with the brand that we are using now. I may have actually tweeted them angrily a few times. That’s how much I value internet connection.

I have been looking for potential broadband services that I can switch to. It is no doubt that we have a couple of broadband packages to choose from. They all offer different types of broadband services at different price ranges! Ahh…if only I could afford the HIGHEST internet speed service! Perhaps in a few more years.

clip_image002

Among all the brands, Sky particularly caught my attention. I hopped over to their site and found this http://www.mysky.com.ph/locations/loc/3/manila/plans. I totally skipped the “CONSUMABLE” tab since I need if not ‘ultra high speed’, then unlimited services!!!

On the “ultra high speed tab”, they have this Plan 24Mbps (download up to 24mbps, upload up to 2mbps) with a monthly fee of PHP 9,999.00 I was thinking I could get this, although I should get something a little less since that amount per month for me is a little bit much (I am talking about money out of my own pockets, by the way, not my parents!) So then I browsed a little bit more finding one of the newest plans which is Plan 10mbps. This plan can enable me to download up to 10mbps, and upload up to 1mbps…and the best part??? Only PHP3,999 per month!!! Now that’s something I can afford!!! This plan also offers a free SkyCable 499 subscription (although I don’t give much care for that, I’m all after the internet!!!)

I think this plan suits me the best because of the services and the price. I can pretty much live with this plan for a couple of years until I can finally afford something faster.

Whew. Talking about techy stuff always makes my head ache. Haha!

Ending this post by asking what plan are YOU subscribed to right now or perhaps what service are you using? It would be a lot of help if you can give me tips! I would LOVE to know!

See you guys in my next post/videos!

MBT Travel Size Blending Brush Review + Giveaway (CLOSED)

DSC_0008 (2)

A blending brush for me is one of the most important brushes ever when it comes to makeup application. Everyone knows that “blending is key”.  The most beautiful makeup looks are achieved by perfect combination of different shades together.

It is disappointing that most makeup lines available in our local malls don’t carry blending brushes for sale, considering it’s one of the most important tools!

I use blending brushes for a couple of things:

  1. blend eyeshadows on my crease area
  2. contour my nose bridge
  3. contour the hollows of my cheeks
  4. contour my jawline & temples
  5. used as a highlighting brush

A blending brush has a lot of functions that aid in achieving any makeup look.

The first ever blending brush I owned is from the famous makeup line, Sigma Beauty, (thanks to Sigma for the generous stash) and I’ve been in love ever since!!! I have about 5-6 blending brushes from them, and I just can’t get enough!

If you are looking for a more affordable alternation, Makeup by Toni’s blending brush is for you! Usually found in the Makeup By Toni HOPE Series Brush set (full size), the blending brush is without a doubt one of my top favorites as well! It is very much comparable to Sigma in terms of quality! MBT always gets a 5/5 score from me considering how beautifully crafted their brushes are. Truly made from passion.

I have yet to do the video covering all the specific functions of my favorite blending brush from Makeup by Toni. Rest assured, the video will come very soon!

I guarantee you won’t have any problems in terms of hair fall-outs, scratchiness, flimsiness, and the likes. The bristles are made of high quality synthetic hair free from horrendous odors (w/c can normally be sniffed from low-quality brushes) The MBT Blending Brush is all in all perfect.

What’s even perfect than a full-size blending brush?

A TRAVEL SIZE VERSION!

A blending brush is an essential part of ANY travel-size makeup brush set. I simply cannot live without it. I carry mine in my makeup bag all the time, especially during times when I need a quick and instant smoky eye look for partying; my blending brush is always to the rescue!

Look at the beautiful holographic brand name printed on the brush! Speaking of the brand name, Toni is a good friend of mine, a fellow makeup artist and a Youtuber from Singapore. I have personally met Toni a few months back and this woman is without a doubt one of the most passionate persons I’ve ever met. She has a Youtube Channel which you should totally check out! MBT also has a Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/MakeupbyToni

Should you be interested in buying a set of the MBT Hope Series Brush Set, it is available for only SGD 85 or PHP 2,700. Email contactmakeupbytoni@gmail.com (limited stocks available)

Now for the best part, Makeup by Toni will be giving away 4 pairs of travel size blending brushes to 4 lucky winners! Each winner will receive 2 travel size blending brushes each!

60 Seconds Tress Tamer–Review & Giveaway

I've often been asked about what products I use to keep my hair straight, shiny, and healthy. I honestly don’t pamper my hair that much! I just use regular shampoo & conditioner (from Palmolive) and that’s it! I get occasional pampering from my wonderful sponsor salon, Pink Cuts Salon, for my highlights and colors. This year, I started discovering more and more amazing hair products that keep my hair beautiful. To be specific, hair oils, hair conditioners, and the likes. In this article, I would like to give more attention to this amazing hair conditioner I’ve been using especially when I use hot tools for my hair. I can go on everyday without shampooing my hair and just using this conditioner. It works for me! It keeps my hair really soft and manageable.

giveaway tress tamer

This product is the Vanilla & Co. 60 Seconds Tress Tamer

“You’re only 60 seconds away to fabulous soft hair! After shampooing, leave product on hair for 60 seconds then rinse. Et voila! Your hair turns into silk as it absorbs this nutrient packed vitamin conditioner. Light yet highly concentrated, it is so easy to rinse so you don’t risk leaving dandruff-causing residues.”

Ingredients:

Water, Cetearyl Alcohol, Tocopherols, Virgin Coconut Oil, Fragrance, may contain FD&C Color

I have nothing to say but praises about this product. If this came in a super huge bottle, I’d totally buy it. This conditioner gives my hair the most amazing softness and silkiness I want. Combing through my hair is a breeze after every wash! It has a light, fragrant scent which keeps the hair smelling fresh all day long. I highly recommend this product to people who want to “tame their tresses”!

Thanks to www.lazada.com.ph for giving me this product to try out, and of course, for giving another bottle for me to giveaway to my Philippine-based readers.

There will be one lucky winner to be announce tomorrow, March 8, at 9:00PM (giveaway will only run from 11:00PM March 7 till 9:00PM March 8)
