Annyeong hashimnikka!

I got chosen to be one of the first few shoppers to shop on Althea Korea Philippines. (Hello Tammy! thanks for the invite.) Being their beta-tester was one of the great experiences happened to me this year. I had a mixed emotions when I started to do the shopping thing. I was excited yet frustrated in a good way.

Product Review: Olay Regenerist Miracle Boost Youth Pre-Essence & Olay Regenerist Microsculpting Cream

When you become a multi-tasking mother and a full time worker it's hard to keep up with your old beauty routines, it means short bath times, and even the time you usually spend to refresh at night will also be shorten and sometimes compromised because you are too busy being a super Mom. This worries me as I get older, I'm in my mid twenties but I started to have dull skin and fine wrinkles appear on my face as I laugh especially on eyes and lip area. This is why I am more that eager to try the new #MiracleDuofrom one of the world's most trusted skin care brands, Olay.

But before I get into the results I've seen on my skin, let me shed a bit more light on these duo and why they're a new essential for me.

Product Review: Moringa O2 Herbal Shampoo with Argan Oil

Since I began to color my hair it has become important for me to use the right shampoo. I use conditioner also, but shampoo is an essential for cleaning and nourishing my hair with the damage I have done. My hair’s main problem is dryness and breakage from the bleaching over the last few years. I am also acutely aware of hairfall at the end of every bath time and I do notice that my hair becomes thinner and thinner. 

I searched for shampoos and  conditioners that will solve my hair problems. I went from one product to another every year until I found Moringa-02 Malunggay Herbal Shampoo with Argan Oil on Sample Room. I was able to get both products but sadly my points weren't enough so I opted to buy the shampoo instead.

I Want to Become Sample Room's next Beauty Insider

Over the course of my life, I have embraced a number of hobbies: dancing, piano, art.. just to name a few. But none of them changed my life or brought me into satisfaction as the act of blogging. In almost too many ways to count, it has truly changed me and the way i live my life. In fact so much so that it has become a hobby and I regularly talked to my friends about it. My blog is a compilation of Beauty, Fashion and Lifestyle. This blogging route has opened up many path of opportunities for me.
Similar to Blogging, Sample Room, when I found it way way back years ago, introduces myself to the world. Why? because through their products, I learned how to do a product review step by step and engage it to my readers and followers. It causes me to articulate the life that I live and the world behind the situations that i make- Over the time, I have revealed myself more and more to the outside world and I'm happy that people enjoy reading my blog.

Product Review: Burt’s Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm with Kokum Butter

Hello there! It's my second blog post for today. Can't imagine how plentiful my backlogs are so I wanted to lessen them before this month ends. Thankfully I have a lot of free time today. Let' start.
I have a sensitive lips and this is one of the main reasons why I am being picky on which products should I put on it. The last time my lips suffered from extremely dry and swollen was when I used the lipstick from a specific brand that I bought from an online seller. I think the chemical ingredients of the said product are too strong on my lips though. Despite of what happened I am totally pleased to forgive myself because I found out that Burt's Bees added a new collection to their popular lip balms which uses a selection of skin loving ingredients.

Another successful purchased from Sample Room is this Burt's Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Balm and this time its with Kokum Butter - traditionally used in India as a balm for dry, cracked, rough and calloused skin, it is …

Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm with Vitamin E & Peppermint

Nowadays, lip products are becoming popular in the market. Some offers in a cheap price while others are a little bit expensive. It depends on which brand you will choose. And as a person with a penchant for high quality lip balms, I am forever on the lookout for more of them to love. One of the brands that's on my top list is the popular and much loved Burt's Bees.

I got this full sized lip balm on Sample Room when they featured it on their website. There were a lot of flavors to choose from but I wanted to go for the original thing so I grab the Beeswax Lip Balm with Vitamin E and Peppermint.

Live with the King

Some people can only post on their blog under very specific circumstances: a nice, cozy cafe for example. Others can push a post anytime, anywhere. If you belong to the latter group, then you will need (and want) a mobile device that can help you optimize your blogging

As a blogger my computer is mainly where it all goes down, but blogging really never ends when you hit “publish”; there is more to be done after that post goes live. Many of that is handled from my phone when I shut my computer down and I’m on the go. From promoting posts on my social media outlets, to researching and jotting down future post ideas, to interacting with my fellow bloggers, the list goes on when it comes to blogging and my Android.

Well we can’t ignore the fact that smartphones are the most mobile blogging gadgets we can go for, though. There are downsides, of course, some of them are the small screen size, slow performance, fast draining battery and low memory which can be detrimental to easy and efficien…
