AMW Workshop Series IX

It's been more than two months since I last attended a beauty workshop. It was #AMW Workshop Series IX. I attended last years' workshop by Miss Nikki and because I love her and trust her beauty tips and advices, I know I can't missed out this year as well. 

Miss Nikki or simply known as @askmewhats on IG is one of the beauty guru I look up to and respect because of her genuine and quirky personality. She's one of the beauty bloggers who has been my inspiration to start my beauty blog. Ever since I discovered she's having workshops, I then make it a point to attend those events.

This year's #AMWWorkshopSeries9 is entitled "Get Your Glow On" which was held last March 23, '19 at Space1851 Co-Working Hub. Since bringing myself with my big belly (7months preggy) would be difficult, my husband accompanied me because he supports my beauty events all the way!

The new venue was great because it was spacious than before and there's unlimited coffee (very Miss Nikki). Snacks were also served for the event goers.

Since I arrived early, I saw Mr AMW supporting Miss Nikki all the way by shooting Miss Nikki's live updates. Woah! They are always #relationshipgoals.

Also, there's a free mani session courtesy of Girl Stuff. The brand being safe because it's free from harmful chemicals may be used by pregnant women and kids.

According to Miss Nikki, the goal of the workshop is making sure that we have glowing skin from head to toe, hence the workshop title.

She shared that in Chinese medicine, wellness starts from down going up. That's why she introduced products from Soothies like its foot scrub and foot spray. Paying attention to our feet can help a lot because our feet absorbs all the tiredness from all the walking we are doing all day.

Working our way up, we can also opt for peeling body scrub and  lotion if we want to achieve whiter skin, like some instant whitening products from Cathy Doll.

So as Miss Nikki targets each area, she shared more tips on the face like:

  • For bubble product like a cleansing foam, if theres no bubbles, it means you have an oily face or oily hair. Bubble helps to decrease the oil in our face.
  • Apply bubble cleanser first then exfoliating scrub. Scrub from center going up. 

More tips on makeup application.

  • Green corrector is for red pimple
  • Lavender corrector is for sallow skin
  • Orange corrector is for dark areas
  • First part to apply is where you think the most dark part of the face
  • Use hand as palette to warm the product so it will adjust with your body temperature
  • Apply everything with small strokes
  • When you apply product on your face, use two fingers
  • Use fingers especially on color correct products
  • For skincare use upward stroke
  • For makeup application, use downward stroke. Application should be with the growth of your facial hair
  • For big pores use primer
  • Sleeping pack acts as a barrier
  • Two products on one face is okay
  • One side of the brush is for application, the other clean part is for blending
  • For concealer, use brush. Especially if it's cream because fingerprints can be seen
  • Dub down, then dubbing motion
  • Closer finger on the brush, gives more pressure. Far finger, less pressure
  • When applying eyeshadow, never go beyond the bone felt near the eyes
  • Concealer creases than foundation. Add powder then brush it in circles
  • Blot using brush in the afternoon, also in the neck. Don't use foundation sponge sIn the afternoon because it absorbs the sweat

That's a whole lot of tips and many moooree!!! Plus a lot of gifts from sponsors too! 

I'm so grateful to be part of this experience. It was always a pleasure to be part of Miss Nikki's makeup tutorials because I always learn a lot. As early as now, I'm hoping to be part of her 10th-year workshop.

Kudos to your anniversary Miss Nikki and more years and workshops to come! Lovelots đź’—

Unboxing A'bloom Products from Althea

It's been a while since I last wrote a decent blog post on my blog. Life took it's toll on me since I discovered I was pregnant with our second child. A lot of things has changed and it happened together with the big news. My husband changed ways in his career too, which made the whole family to adjust. With all that happened, I am still thankful for the blessings though. Just like this beauty box I received from Althea, their new line, the A'Bloom line.

The line consists of the following:
4 A'Bloom Masks
Baby Meringue Puff
Giany Meringue Puff
BHA Blackhead Blaster

I am a fan of masks and I used them when I was still pregnant. I like that they have different varieties to try. The mask specifically was selling like pancakes because of the Buy 10 Take 10 deal they had few weeks ago. If you wanna try that, head over to Althea's website now.

Next is the BHA Blackhead Blaster. I want to write an in depth review of this one but I immediately used it upon opening the box.

The product is a black stick which is easy to apply on the nose part to help in removing blackheads and whiteheads. I give them the packaging because it is easy to apply, no spill or no need to tpuch the product and you can apply it with ease.

However, I noticed the product didn't sticked well on the nose and it also didn't removed the blackheads and whiteheads in a minute as promised. So I tried reapplying it again for a longer elperiod the next time but to no avail. It's still the same.

I am not sure if I applied it wrongly or it just didn't worked out for me.

Lastly the puffs. This is the cutest of all the products because of the color and the bright idea of calling it meringue. It's just so cute right?!

I like that they've come up with different sizes which is lovely. Since it is a teardrop shape, it can cover the corners of the nose and the eyes with ease. When the product is wet, it becomes bigger too. I photographed the small one for reference.

Overall, I like all the products in the line especially the puffs. I think they're very handy to use too. Masks are my second fave and the least would be the BHA Blackhead Blaster.

If you want to order the same items in this post, head over to Althea now. 

Summer Fashion Favorites Everyone should be Wearing Now

It’s official – the season for beach trips and weekend getaways is upon us, and there’s no better time to start shopping summer’s best trends than now. Shangri-La Plaza’s Summer Fashion Show 2019: Sun, Sand, and Squad curates fashion favorites that keep everyone, even kids (twinning!), stylish all season long.

Back by popular demand, sailor stripes and chic anchor prints populate resort dressing. Get these seafaring looks from adorable sailor-inspired outfits for kids, to collegiate, sporty-luxe grown-up versions.

From tropical and botanical, to floral and geometric, fashion still has a preoccupation for prints. Wear them all over, madly and merrily. Wear art on your sleeve – literally – and take on the modern, updated tie-dye. These aren’t just for hippies anymore.

Nothing spells summer better than pops of color. Try the yellow-white-gray-black color combination creatively inspired by a sea gull on a rocky shore to inject more oceanic vibes. Or dive right in with cool blue, aquamarine, and turquoise, green sea anemone, and fiery coral shades of a world under the sea.

The color story continues with soft, pale pastels for sweet-toothed toddlers, or standout neon colors for the bold and beautiful. Stay fresh with the season’s coolest shade, sage green, especially when paired with crisp whites and neutrals.

Stock up on graphic tees and wear them with everything, from skirts to lounge bottoms, and under strappy dresses. Boiler suits have been elevated from utilitarian protective garment to stylish and functional summer piece.

Denim is forever a style staple with the runways and city streets seeing a millennial revival of the classic blue jeans of the 80’s and 90’s, and the girls rocking sexy denim-and swimsuit combinations.

Higher temperatures mean showing more skin. Go Kim K-esque by wearing spandex as outerwear, or don the sartorial pick of summer, shorts, which have morphed into ultra shorts this season – higher on the gams and in Crayola colors, to turn a few heads at the beach and on the streets.

Keep professionally cool and chic in tailored modern suits in ocean hues, and channel that inner bohemian with crafty, artisanal handiwork on maxi dresses for a relaxing day off. Sophisticated summer evenings call for couture in blue hues with dramatic big bows, fringes and ruffles.

Shop all these hot #SunSandSquad trends from the show at Shangri-La Plaza to #FeelTheShangVibe this summer! For kids and teens (5:00PM), browse and buy must-have pieces at Ever New, Gap, Gingersnaps, Great Kids, Joe Fresh, JustG, Mango, Mothercare, Old Navy, Onitsuka Tiger, Periwinkle, Plains and Prints, Rustan’s Department Store, Sky Castle, Stradivarius, Superdry, The Original Penguin, and Unarosa.

Review: 3W Clinic Green Tea Moisture Peeling Gel

Keeping my skin smooth and moisturized can sometimes be challenging especially now that I am pregnant. During my first trimester, I hate the smell of anything in skincare so I totally ditched that. Now that I'm on my 3rd trimester, I have adjusted and continued using some of the products which I can take. One of them is this 3W Clinic Green Tea Moisture Peeling Gel. It’s light in scent so it doesn’t bother me that much.

PACKAGING - Let’s go first with the packaging. It Is housed on a simple green box with English instructions at the back making it easier for users to understand. I just hope most Korean products would take note of that. It is a tube type which can be dispense easily. Only be careful when squeezing it from the tube because it might give out a lot of product at once.

SCENT – If you’re familiar with the green tea scent, then this just smells like that. It isn’t too strong that’s why I was able to use it during this pregnancy. Now, I used this twice to thrice a week because I feel the need to get rid of a lot of dead skin for not being able to maintain my skincare routine in this pregnancy.

PRICE – I bought this online together with a lot of different purchases so I really forgot how much this was. As far as I remember, this is just around P200. I remember it was really affordable compare to other expensive peeling gel I've tried before.

EFFECT – I like how it cleanses my face gently and it makes me feel the smoothness of it. I don’t feel guilty even if it’s a peeling gel because I know that it cleanses my face delicately without stripping the moisture of my skin. 

Yay for me! (  
·  I like that it is mild and doesn’t sting.
·  It cleanses my skin gently.
·  Very affordable. It does the work just like the expensive brands. 
·  It has a lot of product inside the tube.

Nay! (。◕)
·  Tend to dispense a lot of product at once so control is the key.

Price: Around P200.00
Bought from: an online korean shop
Size: 180 ml.

Overall, I like this product because it's what saves my skin during this pregnancy. There are times that I dislike any skincare or makeup product on my skin because of the scent. Or sometimes I dislike a product just because of my mood. So this product is a life-saver of some sort. 

I can slowly use some products now so I'm back in the game of reviewing items I received from the past until now. I hope I can catch up especially that I will be giving birth again soon! So cheers to more blogging years for me! 

Until the next! đź’“
