Top 5 Beauty Essentials I Need (When Going Out of Town)

unnamed (1)

The worst thing that could probably happen when you’re going out of town is your bottle of makeup remover spilling/leaking everywhere in your bag. That leaves you with NOTHING to remove your makeup with (considering you did not bring a back up, most probably)

This is why I  would suggest you use makeup remover wipes, instead. They come in packs, and you get more than enough to clean your makeup off! The Nivea Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes is perfect for out of town trips (especially places where convenience stores are far away/lack variety of skincare products available) It comes with 25 wipes which is truly more than enough wipes you will need to remove a day’s worth of makeup. I usually use 1-2 wipes and I’m good to go!

Feeling lazy to wash your face? Nothing to worry about! The Nivea Gentle Facial Cleansing Wipes will remove all traces of makeup—even waterproof mascara! Leaving you with a fresh feeling on the face, and allowing you to sleep right after without worrying waking up with a pimple.

It is suitable for dry and sensitive skin as it says on the pack, but I really think it’s also perfect for people with combo (ME!) oily skin!

Not only does it cleanse, it also tones and hydrates the skin. I love that it doesn’t have an oily residue, too! Alcohol free, so you don’t have to worry about it stinging your eyes or whatnot.

Never leave for  trip without the Nivea Facial Cleansing Wipes! Get yours now from Watsons for only P140.00 :)


I will never forget my red lipstick. You’ll never know when you’ll need it! Say, for example, an impromptu date night! Every girl needs a red lipstick—even if it’s all that she has on (and brows, of course), it’ll look perfect and made up!


ALL AROUND MOISTURIZER! I love the Nivea Crème because you can put it anywhere—your face, rough spots, skin…etc! It is what I go for when my skin gets dry because of the weather. You need this baby.


You need your eyebrow kit, girl!!! As I mentioned earlier, even if all you got was your brows and red lipstick on, you’d look perfect! Never forget this stuff, unless you are on a makeup fasting!


Eyelash curler! Even if you forget your mascara, just curling your lashes would totally make a difference with your look! Lash curlers open up your eyes and make them look prettier! I’ve always been a fan of curled lashes! (Say Eyelash Curler, P399, order from 09179870285)

Those are my TOP 5 Beauty Essentials for out of town trips!

Sweet 15! Quinceañera 2015 Dresses

Quinceañera also called fiesta de quince años, fiesta de quinceañera, quince años or simply quince, is the celebration of a girl's fifteenth birthday in parts of Latin America and elsewhere in communities of people from Latin America. This birthday is celebrated differently from any other as it marks the transition from childhood to young womanhood.

Although we don’t have this tradition in the Philippines, this post is specially for my readers abroad who are about to celebrate their quinceañera’s! Check out these awesome quinceanera dresses for 2015! Take your pick, order it in advance, and have the best birthday ever!


This first gown has got to be my favorite! If I were to celebrate my 15th birthday tomorrow, I’d totally be wearing this! I love the soft details and radiant color. It is the perfect gown for a girl to woman transition!


Here is another dress that will make you look like someone straight out of the fairytale! It’s dreamy, and classy. Who wouldn’t want it?


Here is an example of a classy and simple gown, made even more beautiful by the beading and the unique color.


If you love blue, you would love this dress! It screams “royalty”! And that is totally appropriate for your big 15th!


Another one of my favorites, this coral gown is to die for! This would turn you into an absolute princess for the night!


Are you more into GOLD? This gold quinceañera dress from Pickedresses is perfect for you! It looks so classy and elegant—just look at that beading!

Mint and silver together brings a very refreshing look to the audience’s eyes. This dress is a perfect choice for those who aim for classy and beautiful gowns. It has the right amount of beading to make it beautiful enough but not too overboard.
