WATSONS HAUL PHILIPPINES (MAKEUP & SKINCARE)

 
As always, it’s been my tradition to swing by Watsons every time my hubby and I visit the Philippines so our quick vacay last month is no different. The only difference I guess was my choice of items. I mean I normally go for makeup products like eyeshadow palettes, blushes, lipsticks and the like but this time I went more for skincare products. Although I still got a few foundations/bb creams 'coz... I just had to haha. Anyway, my haul video is now up and here it is if you haven't seen it:

US VLOGS DAY 10: PACKING AGAIN FOR OUR FLIGHT BACK TO SAN FRANCISCO (OCT 28, 2017)



How was your weekend? I hope you had a wonderful and blessed one. Mine was rainy but quite interesting. For the first time, my sister who I have been convincing, no, begging (LOL) for years to be my model for one of my makeup videos finally agreed last Saturday and it was a fun shoot, I must add. Anyway, I had another US Vlog that went live on my YouTube channel yesterday and here it is in case you haven't seen it. Not a lot happened in this vlog, though, as it was simply a day of packing for me.

HOW I APPLIED FOR MY US VISA IN SINGAPORE (STEP-BY-STEP)


https://youtu.be/Hzn7POtHb10

Happy TGIF everyone! I hope your weekdays have all been good and merry this week. Today I wanna share with you my experience when I applied for my US Visa here in Singapore. My video is already live now on my channel if you’d rather watch than read. Just a heads-up though, my video is in Tagalog.


MY EXPERIENCE..

The first thing I did of course was to google the words “US EMBASSY SINGAPORE” because that’s where I need to go to apply for my US Visa. For this, I used Google Chrome as it’s also the highly recommended browser for this type of online transaction.

#ThrowbackThursday: DAISO FULL FACE FIRST IMPRESSIONS REVIEW

https://youtu.be/8mCOYP7SO6Q

Since it’s Thursday today, I thought of posting a throwback entry! It’s a video I posted on my YouTube channel in December last year entitled DAISO FULL FACE MAKEUP +REVIEW


It’s one of my favorite videos from my channel because I really worked hard to create it. You see, filming a product review takes a lot of time and in this video I actually filmed 12 first impression reviews all in just one video. So I had almost two hours worth of footage to edit for this one video. Not only that, I also had to make sure when I was filming the application part that I was creating a decent makeup look so it was really a challenge for me, but definitely a fun challenge! 

US VLOGS DAY 9: OUR FIRST DAY IN ASHBURN, VIRGINIA + CHECKED OUT DULLES TOWN CENTER (OCT 27, 2017)



https://youtu.be/C3Q7mx7isNQ

Hello and welcome back to my blog! Today, our 9th Day vlog when we’re in the US just went live on my YouTube channel. In this vlog, I shared what we did on our first day in Ashburn, Virginia. I also did a mini hotel room tour. We stayed at Courtyard Marriott Dulles Town Center and the interior of the hotel is very similar to that in Foster City because it’s another Courtyard Marriott hotel. 


Anyway, in this vlog, I showed that we went to Dulles Town Center to check it out and we actually found some great deals. There were so many clearance sales going on at that time but we weren’t able to shop at all. It’s really very difficult to function like a normal human being during the day when you’ve gotten no proper sleep for the past nights on top of flying from one state to another. But that’s it for this vlog! Until my next post… :)

THE BODY SHOP FRESH NUDE CUSHION FOUNDATION FIRST IMPRESSION DEMO & REVIEW



Happy Monday, everyone! Today I want to share with you my new video on my YouTube Channel. It’s a First Impression Review of The Body Shop Fresh Nude Cushion Foundation that I got just a few weeks ago during a sale at Paya Lebar Singpost Centre. I actually even uploaded of haul video for that, which you can watch here




It’s been a while since the last time I used/tried a cushion foundation and I’m really happy that I did again. I really like this one from The Body Shop.
