My Favorite Blogs

Hi everyone...

Aside from Facebook and Twitter, browsing blogs is one of my favorite thing to do here in the net. My top picks are beauty and fashion blogs. I love to look at the OOTD's and cosmetic photos. For me, it's relieving and therapeutic(?). Here are my top favorite blogs in no particular order:


Tricia Will Go Places
Tricia is a fashion blogger from the Philippines. I love her gyaru-esque make up and her mode fashion which is cool but not over the top, something you can wear everyday. Her photography is awesome! She also replies to your comment (another cool points!).

Zoella
She's a UK blogger and also a youtuber. I love the way she review beauty products. She's also a great photographer. Her blog tackles lifestyle and beauty. I would like to copy her hair style but no to avail! I'll just leave it down to her and I'll just have a feast looking on her blog.

Lips So Facto
Another UK beauty blogger! Her name is Meg. I love the way she writes her posts. I love her black and white blog template which in my opinion is more professional looking and won't sore your eyes. She's also one of those I first followed via GFC. 

Couture Girl
Kayleigh is also from the UK (it seems that I happen to like UK beauty bloggers!). She's a great product reviewer and I love the way she take photos. She also writes A LOT on her blog post.


How about you? Please share your favorite blogs and link back to this post so I would know. Good luck!

Rurouni Kenshin Live Action Movie


When it comes to movies, I like watching anything assassin-related. Two of my favorite movies of all time are So Close and Naked Weapon. I was ecstatic upon hearing the news (which was a month ago) that the live action movie of Rurouni Kenshin will be shown here in the Philippines. It's about a former skilled assassin named Kenshin Himura who pledged not to kill anymore.

I am not really  fan of the manga nor the anime series (Samurai X) but since my brothers used to watch the series frequently after school, I have no choice but to watch as well since we only have one TV. I am not even familiar with the characters except for Kenshin and Kauro. But the movie excites every nerve in my body knowing the fact that it involves assassins!

Here are some images I got from Google, these are not mine.







Overall, the movie was awesome, though the fight scenes that include blood was gruesome. It's an assassin movie but it's light compared to other movies that include killings and blood which are a way too obscene. Most often than not, I fall asleep while watching movies, but I wasn't bored with this one. Even though I know 20% of the plot, I am still thrilled waiting of what will happen next. I am not a movie critic, please check  IMDb and Google for more ratings and movie reviews.

Hopefully this movie is available in your country if you happen to be not from the Philippines or Japan. And hopefully you'll like it as much as I do.


 P.S. Kenshin Himura, err, the actor in the movie is an eye candy!

Etude House Sweet Seven Way Buffer

Hi! I'm back on track!

Aside from books and lipstick, I'm addicted to anything nail related. I recently get hold of this super cute nail buffer from Etude House (I think EH need to sponsor me for forever mentioning the brand, just kidding!).  It's a seven-step(!) nail buffer that you can use if you're a bit tired using that old flat nail file. This cutie is available in every Etude House outlet. I'm a bit lazy when it comes to  filing/buffing my nails but this cute nail buffer gave a new meaning to 'nail buffering'. 

Here it is:




As you can see, the step comes in different color each (which is in super gorgeous pastels!). So if you are too lazy to read which step is which, just memorize it according to its color. Every step has its own distinguishing texture for buffing. There are also different drawings in every step which I think will simply give a visual instruction and  explanation of each step. And since it's not the normal one-step nail file,  the result is far more better than the old school nail buffer, if you know what I mean. The first three steps  may be a bit harsh to your nails, but as soon as you finish, it will give you buffed shiny nails- a perfect canvass to your nail polish routine. The only thing I don't like is it's a bit big for a nail buffer. I'm used to the old flat nail file. But it's too hard to resist so I'm getting the hang of it.

But will I repurchase? Definitely!
