REVIEW: Blushing Beauty Lick My Lips Color-Changing Lip Balm

I first got this color-changing lip balm after winning the SkinStation raffle during the Blogapalooza event last May 21.

This was perfect timing since I run out of lip balm during that time and was only using a petroleum jelly under my lippy (haha!). My lips tend to become chappy that I cannot wear matte lipsticks without a lip balm or something to moisten it.

After getting this product, I was so eager to try this on and it has been two months now since I started using it. So, I think it's about time to make a review.

Buffalo Wild Wings at Estancia Mall

July 17, 2016 - I and my college friends decided to meet for some chitchat and bonding time. Our dear friend Weng of Travel Eat Pinas was generous enough to pick us up. She usually does this to bring us together (advantage of having a friend with a car).

Help World Vision Children with their Education through 'Bags of Hope'

Nearly one-third of Filipino children are deprived of health care, safe water, clean toilet facilities, decent shelter, nutritious food, and education. Almost 4 million Filipino children are classified as out-of-school youth. Numerous reasons contributed to this prevalent problem like insufficient family income, child labor, teen marriage, illness, disability, inaccessibility to schools and high cost of education. Consequently, these factors inhibit the proper learning, development and value formation of a child.

Robinsons Supermarket, Unilever Philippines and World Vision united together and launched the “Bags of Hope” campaign. It aims to help World Vision Kids with their education and their future.

Goodbye to a Hero

I remember when Gabi used to go to a conventional school two years ago. He needed to cross a bridge with my Auntie (who is also our helper) to and fro school. This is not the main way but this is the easiest way to get there from our house. The bridge was made up of a long metal and a long wood log on the other side. It serves as a shortcut. The place where it will lead you is called "Ibayo", which is a relative's compound. It isn't a public bridge but people may pass giving their donations since it is private property. The river underneath is an extension of Pasig River where the water is black and during summer, it emits a foul odor. The local government is in the works of rehabilitating it by removing wastes and silting.
