My Flawless Beauty Transformation



Initially, I thought that my post-pregnancy problem would be losing all the weight that I've put on. Everyone, especially my lola, kept on reminding me to watch my diet cause I might never be able to get back in shape. Luckily, I got my pre-pregnancy figure in no time. Thanks to breastfeeding, sleepless nights and law school! Now when I look at myself in the mirror, I do not really see any post-pregnancy damage except for my stretch marks which I have come to love and accept. But when I come to think of it, my real beauty problem is actually something I've had for long: my uneven skin tone.

Dear Santa, this Christmas I wish to have clear, even and smooth skin just like Z's! :)
I've didn't really have the nicest skin growing up. Yes, I rarely have pimples, but my skin is not even and makinis at all. I was very tanned when I was in elementary school because of frequent swimming since my sisters and I have free access to a swimming resort nearby. We'd go there almost everyday to frolic under the sun. On top of that, my family and I would go to the beach at least once a year. Who could not resist the sun, the water, and the sand? No one! 

I was a beach bum!

Upon entering high school, I got more conscious with my skin and refrained from swimming and being exposed in the sun whenever I could. Of course, we'd still have our annual beach trips. However, I was never able to achieve the skin tone that I was aiming for. I still have that dark face, arms and legs and got lighter skin tone and better skin texture on my body and thighs. I know that tan lines are hot. But after quite some time, they could look very unpleasant. Moving forward, my pregnancy has also contributed to my uneven skin tone. The darkening of some body parts is just inevitable, especially that I had a baby boy. Sadly, my underarms, the back of my neck and inner thighs got darker. It subdued but never returned to its original shade.

Almost due! You could probably see what I am talking about here.

If I would be given a chance by the generous Santas of Flawless to have the clear and even skin that I've been dreaming of, I would definitely try their Flawless White! I've tried different brightening, whitening and lightening soaps, lotions, oils and creams, you name it! But none of them seem to work and even out my skin tone. I think it's about time that I try something that would enhance my skin's appearance from the inside. There's nothing to be feared as I am assured that the procedure is safe cause it is done by only by the licensed doctors of Flawless. Not only do I get the clear and bright skin that I want, it also serves as an anti-oxidant. It's like hitting two birds with one stone!

Z's Birthday Party!



Hello guys! Here's my long overdue blog post about Z's birthday party. :p It was held last November 18 at Mcdonalds Regalado Fairview as I have mentioned in my Planning For Z's Birthday post. I could say that I was really satisfied with Mcdonalds Regalado's service, it's just my guests were running late. Haha! The manager did a good job hosting the party and the food was on time. They even let us extend for about 30 minutes since we started the party super late.


Games for the kiddos!


Grimace and Birdie (don't know her name) danced for the kids. :)


Instant pinata. 


The cake was done by Ms. May of Sweetbox Specialty Pastries and Sweets. We didn't get the chance to eat it during the party due to Mcdo's policy. But we ate the whole thing when we got home. :p I've never really liked fondant cakes because it's too sweet, but this one was really nice. The fondant was, of course, really sweet, but the chocolate cake itself was not so much. Rather, it was moist and yummy. :)



We hired a photo booth because most of my guests are adults and I'd rather have them take home photos during the event than key chains that they would never use. :p We hired Happy Face Booth and they also did a really great job! They were actually there earlier than us, so they had the whole thing set up already even before we arrive. They also did the layout which I really love and the quality of their print outs are really nice.

It's Mail Time!



Came home to these goodies one hell day from school. I had a bad recit at my Obligations and Contracts class that day so these definitely made me better. I've been actually waiting for these (except the LBC one) for months now. Finally, they're here! :)

Floral Print Bandeau Shift Dress from Romwe.com

I was planning to wear this to a friend's wedding last October. I wasn't able to come anyway. Then I decided to wear it instead for Z's birthday, but I got no luck cause it only arrived just recently.

Floral Print Sheer Back Vest from Romwe.com

This pretty top is for my mom! I got it because I have a similar shirt from Romwe as well that she really likes wearing. I was supposed to give this on her birthday but I'm already a month late. :p

Sunset Glow Printed Leggings from Romwe.com

This pair of pretty leggings are for my youngest sister who made all the DIYs. :) She's been eyeing this for quite some time. I got this for her birthday, too.

Can't wait to wear this one! :)
