#ThankYou, DBS Fam!

“A grateful heart is a happy heart.”

This is one of the things that I have learned and have lived by. 2016 has been a challenging one for me but the little things remind me that there are always things I should be grateful for and this makes me happy no matter how sad, lonely, or angry I felt. Similarly, AirAsia Philippines aims to inspire me and many others to celebrate the holidays with a grateful heart. Check out their #ThankYou video.

With the spirit of gratitude that AirAsia imbibes, I am more inspired to live each day with a grateful heart.

As we approach the end of 2016 and celebrate the Christmas season, I would like to say #ThankYou to a lot of people… most of all a heartfelt #ThankYou, DBS Fam! <3

2016 has been a challenging one for me as I struggled to make sense of many things. I lost a part of myself somehow but I gained so much more than I could have ever imagined. From strangers, members of my beloved Davao Bloggers Society (DBS) became family to me.

While my family has always been there for me and will forever be my fortress of solitude, I consider DBS as my baby. An organization so close and dear to my heart that when we faced adversity I was heartbroken. Fortunately, DBS rose from the ashes like a phoenix. And it was not because of me or my hardwork. I credit the organization’s resilience and successes to its current officers and more so its members who have risen up to the challenge of contributing to the organization’s success.

We worked hard and played hard. Through our brainstorming meetings, shoots, nakakaumay tambays, food trips, mentoring sessions, Pokemon hunting parties, alak nights, and even more food trips, we became closer. We pushed each other to be better bloggers and better persons. While we are mostly competitive people, we opted to collaborate rather than compete. Taught and learned from each other. Celebrated each other’s victories and successes. We drew strength and inspiration from each other.

Here are some of our best moments together in 2016.

It has been an awesometastic 2016. Definitely, one for the books.

#ThankYou, DBS Fam! Daghang salamat kaayo for giving me a million reasons to work harder, push myself more, be better. Sa dami ng napagdaanan natin ngayong 2016, pinatunayan niyo sa akin na maraming mabubuting tao sa mundo, na hindi sayang ang ating mga pinaghirapan, na marami pa tayong pwedeng gawing kabutihan para sa isa’t isa at para sa ating komunidad. Daghang salamat!

You inspire me in so many ways. Labyu.

PS Wag pasaway at wag niyo akong ipa-high blood. Joke. Pero hindi. CHAROT!

Top Beauty Picks at the Lazada Online Revolution 2016

Happy Singles Day! That’s 11.11 in case you didn’t know. More importantly, today marks the start of the Lazada Online Revolution 2016. To kick off this exciting sale event, I am sharing with you my Top Beauty Picks at the Lazada Online Revolution 2016.

I have always been a fan of Lazada. Convenient online shopping. Free delivery for a minimum order of P2,000. Cash on delivery and many other payment options. Plus, the variety of products available is just astounding. And yes, amazing promos, discounts, and sale events.

For this year’s Online Revolution, Lazada has been promoting a lot of the beauty products they have on their catalogue. Even the brands themselves, like Maybelline and L’Oreal Paris have been actively promoting the Online Revolution on their social media accounts. This excites me a lot.

First off, some tips when buying beauty products from Lazada. For cosmetics and products that I apply or put on my face, I only buy from Lazada or the brand itself. Make sure to look for the “Sold and Fulfilled by Lazada” tag on the right panel of the product page. Alternatively, check out the seller’s link if the item is not sold and fulfilled by Lazada. Make sure to look for these badges, as well: 100% Buyer Protection, Genuine Product, and 14 Days Easy Return. More importantly, take time to read ratings and reviews located below the product details.

A lot of inexpensive make up and beauty tools are sourced or shipped from abroad. These items usually take longer than the usual 7 day delivery period and the cash on delivery option is not available for these items. You may opt to pay using Your Smart Mastercard Debit Card, PayMaya, or HelloPay. When you choose HelloPay, after finishing your order transaction you will be given a transaction code and you can pay within 48 hours via any 711 store using that transaction code.

Before you go on a beauty buying frenzy, note that there will be a Beauty Fanatic Week happening from November 14 – 19. But if I were you I’d buy my top picks now because stocks are running out fast. And the prices of items that are on sale today will not go lower any more. But do hold off in buying beauty products that are not yet on sale.

Maybelline Beauty Picks at the Lazada Online Revolution 2016

Beauty Picks at the Lazada Online Revolution 2016: Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Mattes - Nude Embrace
Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Mattes – Nude Embrace

If you know me well enough, you would know I’m a big fan of Maybelline. And yes, their Creamy Mattes are to die for. They are inexpensive, creamy, and comes in many gorgeous shades. My current favorite is the Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Matte Lipstick in Touch of Spice. Apparently, it is one of their most popular shades EVER and is always out of stock even in mall stores. There are several shades on sale from P299 to P149. The share I ordered is Nude Embrace.

Check out these Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Mattes Shades.

So temptingly beautiful. Don’t forget each one is only just P149 via the Lazada Online Revolution.

Here’s another Maybelline favorite current on sale. The Maybelline Micellar Water.

Maybelline Micellar Water
Maybelline Micellar Water

The Maybelline 4 in 1 Micellar Water Cleanser is a beauty must-have for me. It is the first make up remover that I absolutely love and swear by. It has no fragrance, is alcohol free, and oil free. Micellar Water is an effective make up remover that is not harsh or greasy. Perfect! The bottle is a bit bulky but I bring it even when traveling.

And while I still have a bottle of it, the markdown from P199 to P139 is just too tempting. If you have not tried this product yet, get one during the Lazada sale. Check it out at this link.

There are many other Maybelline products on sale but these two are my top beauty picks at the Lazada Online Revolution 2016.

L’Oreal Paris Beauty Picks at the Lazada Online Revolution 2016

Another brand I love is L’Oreal Paris. And I was about to checkout the items I had picked when I decided to check their Online Revolution offers. And I was so happy.

My favorite L’ Oreal Paris True Match Liquid Foundation is on sale at 50% off. AWESOME!

LOreal Paris True Match Super Blendable Foundation - Rose Porcelain
L’ Oreal Paris True Match Super Blendable Foundation – Rose Porcelain

The True Match line is branded as such because every product comes in a wide range of shades that everyone is sure to find the shade that would perfectly and truly match her (or his) skintone. I used to buy the Gold Porcelain (G2) shade but I’ve been told I should start buying lighter shades. LOL! What I like about the True Match Super Blendable Foundation is how easy it is to blend. Super blendable hype is real, ladies. And it feels light. It is the first liquid foundation that I bought more than 1 bottle of. It doesn’t feel heavy even when it’s super humid. Tip: Set it with the True Match Two Way Cake Foundation or the True Match Genius Two Way Cake Foundation. Both are also on sale at Lazada.

Another L’Oreal Paris item you should grab is a stick of the L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Lipstick. Get one or more, actually. Haha!

L'Oreal Paris Color Riche Star Collection Lipstick - Iris Aishwarya and Fan Bingbing
L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Star Collection Lipstick – Iris Aishwarya and Fan Bingbing

This is another item I already own. In fact, I have this in two shades: L’Oreal Paris Color Riche La Vie En Rose Star Collection Lipstick – Iris Aishwarya and the L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Star Collection Lipstick – Fan Bingbing. Both were gifted to me and both colors are oh so deliciously gorgeous. I love the color pay off and the luxurious feel of the cream. Thanks, Jexx and Ming!
