500 Peso Valentine's day Makeup Look


I created this look with 500 Peso worth of makeup products. This is in collaboration with YouTuber Philippines (Official) Beauty & Fashion Vloggers. Ooops! I am not a beauty guru. I am still starting to learn the art of makeup and I never thought it will make me feel even better and feel good about myself.  Well, you may think makeup is expensive - YES it is. But you can still look presentable even with non-high end makeup products. Take a look around you, we have local makeup product with high quality.

So, I have accepted the challenge to do a 500 Peso makeup look with the hope that I can inspire others to continue taking care of how they look with less gastos (spending).

I hope you like it. Here are the products used:
Aido Classic Make up Kit + Liquid Eyeliner (Pack) P100
Careline Mascara P120
Careline Oil Control Liquid Makeup P95
Nichido High Definition Lipstick (Love Potion) P99
Fashion21 Eyebrow Pencil (Chocolate Brown) P79
TOTAL 493 (YAY!)

Nails, Hand/Foot Care - Get Rid of Dry Skin and Callus



This video was filmed last January 14, 2018, a Sunday. I grabbed this opportunity to explain why I decided to make use of my real name in this channel and opted to just use 'Princess Mighani' in mobile legends. LOL.

Kidding aside, I want to share with you my weekend routine every time I visit my favorite salon. I always feel relaxed and all cleaned up after a session of manicure, pedicure, foot spa and hair spa.

I hope that after watching this video, you will be inspired to visit the nearest salon or suking parlor. Go go go! You have been working all week- your skin deserves a treat! You deserve to feel good and relaxed!




Excited for the weekend,
Antonia

As I age, I can obviously see and feel the difference in my skin's glow. I started to notice dry patches, wrinkles and irritation. I always wanted to look as youthful as I was before but I just can stop time. Nonetheless, I believe that even if ageing is inevitable, I can still find ways to age gracefully.

I will be incorporating in this blog my journey towards healthy skin, struggles/successes in doing make-up and vlogs which I hope to bring inspiration to my viewers/readers.

Keep wrinkles away!

Enjoy the weekend,
Antonia

No Time for Makeup Makeup look with KJM lip&cheek tint

I feel like I am always chasing time and I neglect to attend to how I look. Despite the hectic schedule, I believe that I should allocate time in taking care of how I look. Let me share with you how I do my makeup even if there is no enough time for it. 

To avoid cramming, I hope to consider the following steps so I can set aside material time for make-up, meditation and taking care of my skin: 

I. Lesser time for unnecessary browsing in the net. I can manage my time well by setting a schedule or number of hours to be spent browsing the net, vlogging, FB, instagram. 

II. If a portion of the time spent online is set aside, I will have more time for beauty rest. Sleeping is a must in attaining a healthy and glowing skin.

III. Wake up early so I can have time for skin care and other beauty routine. If more time is spent for sleeping, I will then feel well-rested which will affect my mood for the day.


For me, the above points can be attained when there is proper time management. Yes, it is easier to say/write than done but I will not give up on myself. I can do this! If I can take care and love myself, I will then be capable of sharing the love to the people around me. 

Here's the video for you. I hope you like it! :) Let me know what you think about it and drop your comments. 





PRODUCTS USED:
Nivea Moisturizing Cream

Feeling pretty,

Affordable Korean Face Mask Review (Featuring Innisfree + Etude House

Our skin is the first to present ourselves and I believe it contributes to the 'awesomeness' of our personality. Taking care of it is not that easy. We need time, discipline and perseverance amidst all the busy schedule. Honestly, it is not on top of my priorities (guilty here). So this new year, I will do my best to take good care of it as it has served me well.

I start with moisturizing it with good treats. I have been using Korean face masks for around three months now with recommendations from my friends.

My friend offers beauty products, mostly Korean products, at  affordable price compared to mall price. 
Check out these links and her instagram page:

Check out my review video on one of the affordable Korean Face Masks that I am using.




Song in the end of the video - https://itunes.apple.com/ph/album/ehu-girl/338389795?i=338389868

This is my first review video and hope (fingers crossed) that I will have more soon. It is so much fun sharing my thoughts with you.

Happy Skin-Caring,
Antonia

Secrets and Tips to a Long Lasting Relationship


I have learned somewhere from my readings that falling in love is easy but staying in love is not. Indeed, I can attest to that. My relationship with my fiancé, Bryan, is already in its 6th year. On our 3rd year, I needed to leave Negros and pursue a career in Manila. From then on, every day seems an ordeal. The experience makes me realize that long distance relationship is not for the faint-hearted. Loving someone from a distance takes so much courage, faith and dedication. 

So, you may ask the question: ‘What are our secrets in keeping a long lasting relationship?’ Let me tell you our story while I present to you some points that you may consider in keeping your relationship alive.


1. Open Communication
I learned to be expressive to my partner. I believe that I should let him know how I feel because if I would not, I will feel alone in the relationship. I share with him the challenges and triumphs at work.  I discuss our plans and how to go about them even if we are miles away. It is our habit to ask how each other’s day went. Having an open communication helped us to understand and become closer to each other.

2. Consistency
We will not last a day without a text or a call. Bryan has been so consistent in dealing with our relationship. During my first three years in Manila, I worked night shift. He served as my alarm clock. He used to call me an hour and a half before my shift to wake me up and chitchat even for a while. In the morning when I arrive in my boarding house, we talked during lunch time before he takes his nap. We have developed this routine. Though it has become a habit, we see to it that we are having fun and spending quality time even if  it is just over the phone. Even if he is very busy at work, he sees to it that he checks on me. I do the same too. There is not a day in our relationship that we have not communicated. I believe consistent communication is a key.

3. Thoughtfulness despite the distance.  
I am living alone, away from home for three years now. My parents as well as Bryan are in the Negros Province. Bryan is two hours away from my parents. One night, I was startled from my sleep when my mom sent a message informing me that Bryan visited them bringing ice cream, roasted chicken and fruits. At first I thought she was just kidding but it was true. It was the first of the many counts when Bryan visited my family even if I am not home. His thoughtfulness makes me love him even more each day.
  
4. Loving and kind words. Complimenting your partner with kind and loving words will foster a harmonious relationship. Fortunately, Bryan and I have not experienced intense quarrel with exchange of hurtful words as a result of emotional outburst. Yes, we inform each other if one has committed a mistake and discuss how it affects each one’s mood. We see to it that if we are in middle of an argument (over the phone, or face to face), we do not throw bad words or insulting words for we may regret it after the tension settles. We believe that any misunderstanding can be sorted out by mellow and peaceful discussion. 


5. Planning for the future together
On our 5th year, Bryan proposed. Months after I said YES, we decided to avail of a house and lot package in a subdivision. Our engagement has been running for more than one year now. Last August 2017, majority of the house construction has been completed. It is surreal observing a structure in front of us – the house (we call LN: Love Nest) is a concrete testimony that love can withstand despite the distance, differences or conflicts in schedule.


If you decide to spend your lifetime with someone you love, plan for it together. Planning is an essential factor of  successful relationship and from there, you can take the next actions one step at a time.

6. Keeping God in the center.  
Surviving each day of a long distance relationship is not a-walk-in-a-park. It is our faith in the Almighty that fuels our perseverance and dedication to continue loving each other despite all our flaws, trusting in our promises and working towards achieving a future together. Hold fast to His faithfulness, give your best to stay loyal and pray to overcome temptation. If a relationship has strong center, it will not fall.

While contemplating on all of these points, I suddenly smell something really good and soothing. I knew it! It is the scent of Del Forever Joy and Love Fabric Conditioner – long lasting soothing fragrance. I eventually heard a knock on my door. Ate Lina dropped by to deliver my fresh laundered clothes conditioned by Del Forever Joy and Love. Wow! No wonder why my inner goddess feels like walking in the middle of a paradise when I sniff on my newly laundered linens. Smells really good! This is because Del Forever Joy and Love now has 15x longer lasting bangooooo vs a regular detergent brand based on consumer test in Metro Manila. (I got this info when I visited their facebook page: facebook.com/delfabcon) 

Like Cheska and Doug Kramer, I will continue to make use of Del Forever Joy and Del Forever Love when we finally live in our house in Bacolod City. This power couple is my inspiration to have a happy, healthy family. My future kids’ clothes/garments will surely be so bango and make them more nakakagigil. Ooohh. I can’t wait!

Indeed, loving is not only a wonderful feeling but also a difficult decision to make. I always have the option to just walk away, free myself from loneliness of a long distance relationship BUT I chose to stay. I will stay.

We all have unique love stories and different circumstances. At the end of the day, we all need to love and feel loved. No matter what happens, do not give up on love.
No matter where you are in the world, continue to believe in the power of love. Keep Loving! 

Til next time,
Antonia

How to buy prepaid mobile e-load via BDO online banking

In my previous post, I shared with you our squad’s weekend search for Korean Buffet. Since we were not able to call for reservation, we needed to wait in line to be seated. Can you guess how many minutes? No, not minutes! More an hour! But don’t worry, it was worth the wait.

While waiting, I suggested to one of my friends to play Mobile Legend! Do you know that game? It’s like DOTA but in a mobile phone. Let me show you a screenshot of my winning streak at the end of this post. Haha!

However, I do not have mobile internet/data so I needed to buy electronic load for my globe number and avail of unlimited mobile internet promo for 3 days. I find it very hard to find an electronic loading station nowadays. I think because majority in the area is on postpaid or depending on where I am located. Good thing I remember that I can buy e-load via BDO (Banco De Oro) online banking. How convenient, right?

Buying a load in BDO online is so easy and free of charge. Yes! You’ve read it right. No charge at all. Let me share here the steps.


1. Log in to your BDO online banking account: https://www.bdo.com.ph/personal. If you have not registered yet, you can visit the website and browse through the FAQs for guide or click here




2. Enroll your mobile number in the account via Enrollment > Prepaid Mobile Number > Enroll.  



3. Enter the needed values. You have 4 mobile networks available: GLOBE, SMART / TALK N TEXT, SUN, TOUCH MOBILE. 
(I do not have mobile banking account so I marked Online Banking instead.)

4. Click Submit. The following message will be prompted. Hit OK. 


5. Once successful, Enrollment Details will be provided. An email will be sent to your registered account notifying you of the successful enrollment.  




 6. You are now ready to buy electronic load for your mobile. Go to Pay Bills and Reload > Prepaid Mobile Reload > Buy a Load.

7. Enter Load Details. Apparently, only regular e-loads are available. In my case, I made use of the regular load to avail of the Unlimited Surfing promo of Globe. Note: The Remarks field does not allow special characters. 


8. Another message will be shown requesting your confirmation. Click Continue.



9. The action will also prompt One-Time Password will be sent to your registered mobile number. Enter the OTP and click Submit.

10. Success! Wait for the e-load to be added on your mobile.

 In just 10 easy steps, you can enjoy your e-load. Hassle-free! Next time you need the load, you will not be having a hard time looking for loading stations.

Here’s a screenshot of my mobile legend game! So much fun!


All troops deployed! :)

'Til next time.

Weekend Getaway: Search for Korean Buffet near Makati

It has been 3 years since I landed a job here in Makati. As a new comer, I find the place huge and full of strangers. For me, Makati is a place to start anew - build friendship and connections. In no time, I found myself spending time with beautiful, cool and talented bunch in the office. We share laughter, story of our lives, challenges in the office and a lot more! We have so much fun especially when we bond over food.


Like other stories, there is a time in our lives that we need to part ways. One moved to a different team, the other relocated to another office building and I applied for a day shift post. It is quite sad but it is part of growing - personally and professionally.

While writing this post, this song played on my mind:

'I spent half my life
Looking for the reasons things must change.
And half my life trying to make them stay the same.
But love would fade like summer into fall;
All that I could see was a mystery,
It made no sense at all.'

I am missing their company (lunch buddies, chika minutes, etc). But, life goes on! No matter where we are in the world, I hope our friendship will stay forever. We just have to make time to meet and get-together! And yes, last weekend we arranged to have lunch in a Korean Buffet!

Marc (aka Prof) will be our guide (shall I say, our driver - Thanks Prof!). First choice: Hanayo Grill, Tomas Morato, Quezon City. The place has high ratings online. We drove to Quezon City where we will meet Liz. We were driving around Tomas Morato but we could not find the place. We decided to call their reception and to our surprise, we were informed by the owner that they are no longer operating!




Lesson Learned: Call first to request for reservation. We overlooked to do that because we were so excited- checking each other's life updates. In short, we thought it will be a road trip! Anyway, we had so much fun in the car.

We searched for another resto with Korean Buffet and we found Day DonDonDon! They are also located in Tomas Morato, Quezon City (inside Sunshine Boulevard). We inquired inside and checked their food. It has also high ratings online but we opted look for another place. It was around 11:30 am and we were starting to feel hungry and exhausted since we took off straight from the office.



This is the facade of Day Dondondon Korean Buffet


We met Liz near the area and brainstormed on where to take lunch. We were craving for Korean Buffet. We then decided to check out Samgyupsalamat in Banaue (Quezon City) amidst the traffic. We arrived in the place around 12:00 noon. Again, we did not call their office to inquire. So, we were not that surprise that there is a long queue. We decided to enlist and we grabbed the 7th spot in the queue. Wow! We were really famished (exaggerating here!) but we opted to wait for almost an hour before we were seated.

It was worth the wait. Take a look at this video. I have included here our food trip last month (All4u Korean Buffet in Century City Mall). Watch 'til the end to meet some members of the squad.

 

'Til next weekend,
Antonia
