Video Tutorial: Lee Hyori Inspired Makeup

Hello! Good day to you all! I woke up very well rested even though we slept very late last night because of my mom's birthday party celebration.

I had the urge to do a makeup tutorial this morning...maybe it's the right time because it's been so long since I created one....but I wanted to do a video type of tutorial.. I don't know what came into me haha ^_^

Please do give me a comment on my performance...This is my very first time shooting my self doing makeup and so I don't know if the lighting is okay and if my editing is good too. I'm not really well versed in Windows Movie Maker haha :)

Anyways, so here's my Lee Hyori Inspired Makeup Tutorial.

I think the lighting washed out the colors.. This look is very bright in person...anyways, I'll be waiting for your feedbacks and I will try my best to improve on my skills ^_^

Till my next post! Bye!

Review: Red Berries products

Hello everyone! I hope all of you are doing great. I'm gonna be busy later so I decided to post this now hehe...It's my mom's 50th birthday and I still need to do some grocery shopping and cooking before she got home from work.. We want to surprise her with a small party ^_^

Anyway, going to the review. The owner of Red Berries, Aura, contacted me and sent me some samples of their products to test and do a review. She asked me nicely to give her feedbacks about her new products and so I willingly tested these on my sensitive skin hehe ^_^

Here are the products that I got:

* Shea & carrot tonic, face cream, whitening drops, green body cream*Italic

I haven't tried the Shea & carrot soap and whitening drops yet so I won't be able to do a review on them.

I will start with the face cream. When I was sent this, this face cream still doesn't have a name but it is now called Skin Breakfast (morning pact).

LOVE IT because:

- It has a great scent. It smells like strawberry yogurt! Whenever I put this on my face, I can't help but smile because I smell yummy haha ^_^

- Gives enough moisture on my dry patch of skin (cheeks area) and the moisture is long lasting too

- It is said to have an anti-aging and brightening content so that's a big plus.

- It didn't broke me out and didn't cause any itchiness

- Gives a smooth base for my makeup

I DON'T LIKE THIS because:

- It's a cream formulation so it's not meant for oily skin..It made my skin a lot oilier.


- If you are oily, you can just use this at night to replenish the moisture content of our skin overnight.
- Place inside refrigerator to add some cooling effect upon application.

For more info about this product, click this.

The second product that I tested is labelled Green Body Cream. I'm not actually sure if they changed the name of this product or not because I got this before the actual launching.

As you can see, I have already used quite a lot of it. And my brother also use this because it doesn't trigger his allergy that is caused by strong scents because this body lotion is unscented.

I LOVE THIS because:

- It is very moisturizing.

- It has menthol and it gives a cool feel to the skin. I love to use this during hot weather to cool me off.

- It absorbs in the skin very fast. No heavy feel like with other body cream that I've tried before.

- Being unscented can be a plus for others.

I DON'T LIKE THIS because:

- It doesn't have spf in it. I love my body lotions to have sun protection.

- It doesn't smell anything. I love scented body lotions.

I will definitely try their other products too. I saw their website and they have a lot of promising products that I would love to try like the High 10 Whitening Serum and the Fountain of Youth Serum. I am also currently using the Emu Blue Peel Soap and that's on my to-review list.

Do check their website at They have a lot of natural products at affordable prices. And the owner is so nice too so you won't have to worry about they service.

TIll my next review! Bye!

DISCLAIMER: These two productsI reviewed were, again, sent to me for free for testing and reviewing purposes. I am not representing the brand and this review is based on my own honest opinion about their products.

Our baby had babies!

OMG!!! Me and my boyfriend got so surprised when we found out our baby, Hershey, delivered a puppy. We thought she's just fat and had pseudo-pregnancy (she has all the signs of a pregnant dog) but we never took into consideration that she's really pregnant coz we didn't had her mated with other dogs. Surprise, surprise! My bf's maid found her with one pup today around 1pm and shock was an apt word to describe how my bf felt when he was faced with the realization that our Boston Terrier was hit on by his Tibetan Terrier haha. Anyway, here's the scene I had when I arrived at my bf's place after he called me to ask for help in delivering the pups because he doesn't have any experience while I have lots of experiences in this area.

Hershey had 5 healthy puppies that looked like her! She had a very difficult delivery since this is her first babies. She doesn't know how to successfully push during contractions making it very difficult for the puppies to go out. We actually assisted her by gently pulling the puppies and the placenta during the delivery. All 5 pups were delivered within 5 hours ^_^

Here are some pictures of what they look like...they are so tiny and cute!

See the tiny pink ear? He's the second born and is so unique :)

It's so hard to take a clear picture of the puppies since they continuously move so I can't post a lot here...

Here's a picture of me and my bf while waiting for the next puppy to come...Proud parents, don't you think? hehe ^_^

I will end this post with a picture of my baby with her babies after the whole ordeal.. Look at how Hershey sleeps! She has one of her front paw on top of her head haha ^_^

I'm so happy that everyone is safe and healthy...but this is Hershey's first and last pregnancy..I don't want her to suffer again because she doesn't have the right skills to deliver puppies fast and simple... Anyway...

"Congratulations Hershey for being a mom! I hope you will take care of your babies very well. Daddy and Mommy loves you and will always take care of you and your babies ^_^"

Oh, and I just want to greet my very own Mama. happy 50th birthday!! I love you so much! ^_^

Review: Green Barley...All-in-one solution!

Hello guys! As promised, here's another review.
I have not seen any blog post or review about this product as a beauty item so I decided to make one. I'm talking about Green Barley. This is an organic food drink that came directly from Utah and repackaged here in the Philippines so they can add flavorings (This tastes like fruit juice) to make the taste more palatable to consumers. This is advertised as a health drink because barley has a very high antioxidant content. I will try to enumerate some of the health benefits of this plant for you all.

Here's what the description in the bottle says...

Here's the ingredients list and also the approval seal of different organizations.

About the green barley plant....
Green barley is recognized by science as being the most nutritious of all plant foods, containing a broad spectrum of essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids in high concentrations. It also contain enzymes especially the superoxide dismutase, a very powerful antioxidant.

It's calcium content is 11 times higher than cow's milk, iron is 5 times higher than in spinach, 7 times higher in vitamin C compared to oranges and has 2x the amount of beta carotene than carrots.

According to history, the Roman gladiators eat barley as a source of energy and strength. It was also stated in the Bible 37 times for medicinal and food purposes.

Green Barley is not considered as a food supplement like liver-aid or something because this is under “real food” category that is why it was BFAD approved. 

And since this is a real food this won't harm your liver and kidneys, unlike other supplements around the market which need to pass these organs for elimination purposes.

Drinking Green Barley can help in a lot of illnesses like cancer, high blood pressure, goiters, burns, low immune system, etc to name a few. You can search Google to find out more about the benefits and contents of green barley.

Now, after reading all that facts, you might be wondering why I said that this is also a beauty product. Right? Well, I thought, since this has antitoxin properties, why won't I try applying it on my skin to heal my acne? And there are some people who have tried using it as a toner and it worked for their acne too. So I did an experiment when I had broken out from a product I was testing. I got 3 huge zits at that time and what I did was I applied barley juice twice a day. 

I drink 30-50ml of barley juice first thing in the morning before eating anything (Green Barley is my family's source of vitamins), so I use the left over drops from my barley juice to apply on my skin. I let it dry before I wash my face and put my regular skincare regimen like moisturizer and sunblock. At night, I remove my makeup and wash my face then apply barley juice again on my clean skin and let it dry before sleeping.

After using this for 3 days, I noticed that my inflamed acne started subsiding already, yay! It's not as painful too so I continued using it. I don't apply other anti acne medicine on the acne because I want to test the power of Green Barley fully. And I'm so happy that it worked great on my skin. Now, whenever I feel like I'm gonna break out, I do this regimen and it instantly halts the eruption of acne on my skin ^_^


a good source of vitamins and antioxidants for the whole family. Even babies and pregnant women can drink this, it's just the dosage that will vary. Oh, this can be used on animals too!
It taste good. If you love the flavor of tropical fruits, then you'll love Green Barley juice.
It really helps in healing the body. My mom's myoma decreased in size after drinking one bottle a day for 2 months. She will have another ultrasound to check if it's gone now. My granpa who have colon cancer drank this for a month and his rectal bleeding stopped too. We easily recovers from flu too, so we don't take antibiotics anymore ^_^
This is multipurpose because you can apply it topically on wounds too. Faster healing for mouth sores (singaw) that usually last for more than a week heals within 2 days according to my brother.
Keeps my skin clear from painful acne. I think it works on pimples too coz whenever I apply this all over my skin, even my pimples disappear. And this is minus the burning and darkening that happens when you apply benzoyl peroxide as spot treatment.
Helps in my digestive tract. I always have a problem with constipation since I was a baby and I can now eliminate daily (after I started taking this) which is a miracle for me ^_^


A little expensive... a bottle which can make 250ml of barley juice costs Php275. It's pricey if you will drink a bottle of this everyday but if you just plan to take this as a supplement, you just need 50ml a day and a bottle will last you almost a week. What more if you just use this as a skin care product which you only need half a teaspoon to cover your whole face? It might take you more than a month to consume this hehe
If you don't like having sweet fruit juice on your face and sometimes feels a little sticky, then it's not for you.
So there, I hope I have given you all an organic alternative for all your health and beauty concerns. If you wanted to try this, I can help you get one. Just send me an email at and I'll be very much willing to sell you a bottle. My family always buy it by box coz it's cheaper that way since all of us at home drink this and we usually consume 1 bottle a day (there are 5 people in my family and each of us drink 50ml) so we always have stock at home.

Until next time! Hopefully I can make another post tomorrow. It's the last quarter of the year and our schedule at the office is quite hectic hehe. Bye!

NOTE: Please don't forget to participate in my survey...I will really appreciate your inputs. ^_^

Update after the Typhoon

Hello everyone!! I have been MIA again last week and it's because of the typhoon. I really hate rainy season because it's so hard to move around and I can't work fully. I also didn't like the fact that we had a brown-out time during the typhoon, but I guess we're still lucky coz it was just for 6 hours and others had no electricity for 3 days.

Anyway, I just want to hope everyone is alright and were not affected by the typhoon. A lot of people were submerged in flood water for days and I know how hard that is. Our provincial house in Nueva Ecija was affected and we were still unable to visit the place to clean. I hope I can go home there to clean up our ancestral home.

I promise to publish a review tonight or tomorrow. I'm still thinking which one to do among all the stuff lined up for review hehe ^_^

Oh, by the way, I have a question for you guys. I will do a separate survey post for that and I hope everyone will participate. I value your opinions very much.

Thank you for sharing your time with me by reading my blog. Bye! ^_^
