You asked for it so you’re getting it, YAY.  I apologize for the 2 day delay, internet issues.  I ended up finally uploading this 4 minute HD video in like 5 minutes in a corporate office (wow, can I live here)!  We’ll start off with plenty of product right here when you watch my FULL evening skincare routine video.


CLEANSE: Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm (Boots, Oxford, UK)

EXFOLIATE: Alpha-H Gentle Daily Exfoliant powder (Sephora Philippines, formerly Luxola)

In contrast, the quick and lazy evening skincare routine (1-2 products, when I have 0% batt on me) will be brought to you in a blog post.  Read on to watch the video embedded at the end of this post.

NEW YEAR VLOG Fixed 01.09.2016

As I was editing this New Year video for some reason I couldn’t use happy music to edit it.  I felt like I had to go with somewhat somber music…and then just as this video uploaded I fell asleep and my mother woke me two hours later to tell me that my grandfather, whom I have known all my life, just passed away.  Happy New Year, Lolo, for you…I am at peace that you have gone to be with Jesus.

As I write this the video is currently at 78% progress while uploading to YouTube, and I’m hoping I don’t have any delays with YouTube processing after the upload (Note: I did, I reuploaded twice, in fact I blinked the first time when YouTube said the upload had 22,576 minutes left, then I rebooted).  So, in the end I had to shave the edit down to 11 minutes (excluded a couple of products that weren’t as hardcore faves as the others).  Hope you enjoy this video, and for now, Merry Christmas.  Expect some random posts during this holiday season!… To full post & COMMENTS...

Supergirl Flies In on HOOQ!

It’s been awhile since I’ve said “girl power”, but this show most certainly brings that to the mobile realm.  A lot of my cousins and friends have been raving about the show Supergirl, now people subscribed to HOOQ can watch season after season as they add them!  They’ve begun to expand their TV database with newer titles and after seeing Supergirl take the limelight on Hooq I’m quite excited to see what other titles they’ll be bringing in.

Melissa Benoist as Supergirl

“Supergirl is a new Hollywood action-adventure drama series based on the DC Comics character Kara Zor-El

(played by Melissa Benoist), Superman’s cousin who, after 12 years of keeping her powers a secret on Earth,

decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and be the hero she was always meant to be.”

What I personally like about HOOQ is they’ve also got a really deep selection of movies from extremely retro times (even black and white oldies which I used to watch on TNT with my Lola), through to the eighties and nineties, and today’s hits as well.


You can now watch Supergirl and all your favorites on your chosen Internet-enabled device. Simply download the HOOQ app from the Apple Store or Google Play, sign up or log in, and your device is ready to access HOOQ’s library of Hollywood and Pinoy hits. Viewing movies and TV series on HOOQ is made even better with  Google Chromecast support, now available on the iOS and Android apps.

Using HOOQ is easy, subscribe and with just one app, you can stream, download and enjoy thousands of movies and TV series. All from your phone, laptop or tablet.  What’s great is if you’ve never tried HOOQ before, you get your first 30 days free before deciding if you want to subscribe for Php149.00 per month after your free trial.  When I first tried Hooq I was really impressed at the speed of HD streaming, just be aware that you need a steady wifi connection (or if via mobile data while traveling better if it’s an unlimited connection) to retain constant quality while watching on your device.
