My first niche when I started blogging was beauty blog. The reason I started it was because I want to share my thoughts about a certain product, list their pros and cons and other basic information that would help other people.

With all the brands nowadays, you don't know which one's good or not. I must say reviews really help consumers especially those who are new in beauty products or those who want a good value for their money. And that is one of the reasons why I love BeautyMNL. BeautyMNL is an online mall that sells makeup, skincare, haircare and accessories.




They emailed me last December to do a test run on their website and who would resist that offer? Of course not me.

The website itself is heaven on earth for makeup fanatics. They have a lot of products from different brands from high end ones like to drug store brands to Japanese brands and of course my ultimate bias, the Korean brands. Now you don't need to go to Japan and Korea to let Senpai and Oppa to notice you.

They carry Anastasia Beverly Hills, April Skin, Aritaum, Bobbi Brown, Chanel, Clio, Crabtree & Evelyn, Dr.Jart+, Dior, Giorgio Armani, Guerisson, Heroine Make, Innisfree, Jeffree Star, Kylie Lip Kit,Laneige, Labiotte, Lucas Papaw, Morphe Brushes, Nars, Real Techniques, Shiseido, Tarte, Urban Decay, Yves Saint Laurent, 3 Concept Eyes and a lot more!



I love how members can do a mini review on their experience about the product though I wish they have more photos of the product. Maybe a before and after photo or swatches if applicable or maybe looks that you could make with the product would make the website better.

Foundation Brush, Domed Shadow Brush and Multi task Brush

I purchased a decent amount of products when I went to Japan and Korea during my recent trip so I want to purchase something that I know I will use so I chose to buy brushes. I already bought brushes individually but I have been hearing good reviews about Real Techniques,so I gave it a try.


Real Techniques by Sam and Nic

I love that each brush has a label

I have been using the brushes and so far I have been loving it. You can  purchase your own Real Techniques brushes here.


Free case for your brushes

The transaction was really smooth and the products arrived in 4 days. I believe all their products are onhand unless their sold out, but you can always click on the wish  list button and let them notify you if your desired product is already available.

This has to be the most heartbreaking article I am about to write as a Blackjack. I have a fan of 2NE1 since the day they debuted last May 17,2009. I love how refreshing they are, how they defied against the usual cutie performances some groups offered, and lastly their loud fashion that is unique per member at the same time they look harmonious.

With Minzy leaving 2NE1, the fans hoped for the three girls namely CL,Dara and Bom to move forward and still perform as 2NE1 even though 2NE1 will never be the same because a member was lost. The disbandment news TOTALLY broke the hearts of Blackjacks. With the rumors circulating that 2NE1 was not informed with the disbandment beforehand is going around the Kpop community and I hope that the truth will be out soon. I am a huge YG stan, I admired YG for taking care of his talents even though his their training is harsh but if this disbandment without the members knowing is true, then I must say I am disappointed in YG.

I read an article that 2NE1 would be renamed as XXI and the 3 remaining members would perform as a group. I'm not really sure if it's true but I do hope it will be true. I mean 2NE1 is one of the iconic girl group of Kpop history and disbanding them would be a huge shame.

2NE1, noljja!



Don’t go, don’t say that you’re gonna leave me behind
Don’t leave me in your memories
Don’t look into my eyes that can’t hold onto you
Just don’t go, don’t be fooled
Don’t fall for such a little temptation
Not everything is forever
When the winter’s over, the spring comes again, you know this
Just don’t go,
when today is over
I think tomorrow will be different
I don’t know if I can live well without you
Until the day we meet again, goodbye goodbye
Until the far-off day we meet again, goodbye goodbye
Does anyone know
Does anyone know
how it makes me feel
Until the day we meet again, goodbye goodbye
Goodbye goodbye
don’t believe them
Don’t believe the broken and scattered words
Don’t let go of your small and tiny heart
I think of all the promises we made together
My tears are running, don’t forget
It’s okay if it gets difficult sometimes
Come find me if you want to lean on me
Although I cannot be with you forever
It’s just for a moment, when today is over
I think tomorrow will be different
I don’t know if I can live well without you
Until the day we meet again, goodbye goodbye
Until the far-off day we meet again, goodbye goodbye
Does anyone know
Does anyone know
how it makes me feel
I don’t know if I can live well without you
Until the day we meet again, goodbye goodbye
Until the far-off day we meet again, goodbye goodbye
No goodbye goodbye

Waxing is a semi-permanent hair removal that removes hair from the root. New hair will not grow four to six weeks but it still depends on the hair's growth cycle.




Advantages of waxing :

- provides smooth and silky skin
- diminishes new hair growth
- no skin damage
- will result to softer body hair
- it is possible to remove unwanted hair from all areas of the body
- no discrimination of color,texture and types of skin
- waxing helps in exfoliating the skin
- it does not have any side effects



Lay Bare Price List as of December 2016

There are 2 types of waxing, Hot and Cold wax. Lay Bare is using cold wax jelly with 100% natural ingredients

Advantages of Cold Waxing:

- Cold waxing is cleaner than hot waxing.
- Compared to hot waxing, cold method is easier to perform or use.
- Cold wax stripes are available in different shapes and sizes which can be used on different parts of the body.
- Less painful than hot waxing but need to be repeated several times to achieve best results.

Cool Packages from Lay Bare

I have a love hate relationship with waxing. I hate the fact that I need to undergo the painful process to be beautiful afterwards but as they say, no pain, no gain. It's my first time in Lay Bare and I want to share to you guys my personal experience.


In Davao, Lay Bare can be found at SM Lanang Premier,SM City Davao and Abreeza. I went to their Abreeza branch to try out some of their services.




The place was clean and cozy and their attendants were friendly and knowledgeable. I asked them a series of questions that would help me write this blog post and I must say they helped me a lot.

I tried the full legs wax and  eyebrow threading. They were convincing me to do the Brazilian wax and I'm not that brave yet so maybe next time? The pain was tolerable and I love how quick the procedure was. Since it was a major service, there were 2 attendants who were assigned to me, one on each leg.




DO NOT wax days before your monthly period. It makes the waxing procedure more painful because skin is extra sensitive during that time.




Wear shorts during the full leg wax service, I wore a dress and I must say it was a BIG mistake.

As to their eyebrow threading, it was one of my best experience so far since I didn't bleed which is super rare though my eyebrow area still experienced the usual swelling.The procedure was quick and the pain bearable.



They have a lot of waxing services to choose from: upper lip, bikini, arms, chest, underarms, Brazilian, face and such. They also offer cool packages that can save you at least 10% discount.

Lay Bare has a lot of branches. You can check out their Official Website to see if there's a branch near you.



When you see hair, it's time to Lay Bare.

NCT 127 - Limitless Lyrics
The dream that shook my world last night
I don’t know if it’s a nightmare or I’m still in it
I followed a light that led me to a maze in the dream
I found another passage there
The space opens up from the bottom up
There’s a stubborn call in the strange darkness
Finally I see you looking like me
I am you and you are me
What knocks and wakes me up
I follow that light and sound
Electricity flows and I finally know
Oh baby it’s you
This is the beginning, a limitless me
Beginning of the east to the end of the west
Light within darkness becomes stronger as it spreads
Open your eyes oh
My song slowly becomes louder
Did you see the world, hot and about to explode
Can you hear it, we become one
Baby I don’t want nobody but you
Ho, ho, wake me up,
thirsty, thirsty for love
Wake me, wake me up,
thirsty, thirsty
Everyone chase their dreams, completely tricked
Most say they’re the only real one
Or they hide, turning their back
It’s cruel how it repeats every day
Lies stick and it gets sticky
It’s a grey city, It ain’t got a chance
A far future that I wondered when it would arrive
Ha, it’s in front of me now
A short and intense blue flash (flash)
A seventh sense awakens (sense)
One becomes two and sometimes 100
Makes this stiff world flexible
Change this heavy world completely (change)
Look at us being free, we’re free
Only you are allowed within (allowed)
The one who takes my heart, that’s you
I need sympathy, I want it like crazy
I need you, so
We can feel each other completely
That’s what I need, I need you
Oh baby it’s you
This is the beginning, a limitless me
Beginning of the east to the end of the west
Light within darkness becomes stronger as it spreads
Open your eyes oh
My song slowly becomes louder
Did you see the world, hot and about to explode
Can you hear it, we become one
Baby I don’t want nobody but you
Help me so I can do well
Sometimes I lose my way
You know that
We are connected in the end
Like an ocean you find after crossing the desert
You are a limitless being
Oh baby it’s you
This is the beginning, a limitless me
Beginning of the east to the end of the west
Light within darkness becomes stronger as it spreads
Open your eyes oh
My song slowly becomes louder
Did you see the world, hot and about to explode
Can you hear it, we become one
Baby I don’t want nobody but you
Ho, ho, wake me up,
thirsty, thirsty for love
Wake me, wake me up,
thirsty, thirsty
S'mores and Strawberry Yogurt Frappe

One of my favorite local cafes in Davao has a new menu and I'm super excited to share it to you guys. I may not often visit the cafe even though it's my favorite because it's a bit far from our house but whenever I'm there, I really loved the place.

I featured Coffee Grounds by Golden Lion last time and you can find the post here. I mentioned my favorites from their old menu which is still available until now.




Their new menu consists of new frappes, new pizza flavors, desserts and new pastas.

They have new frappes which is the Strawberry Yogurt and S'mores.



Trio Fruit Pizza



I'm a huge fan of strawberries so I tried the Strawberry Yogurt and it was good. I just wanted the yogurt to overpower the strawberry taste a bit but I know not all people are huge fans of the yogurt taste, so this one is ideal for those who want something a bit healthy without tasting the strong yogurt taste.


Shrimp Aglio Olio

Their Fruit Trio Pizza is a must try. For me it's a dessert pizza. I love how the fruits taste sweet but it still tastes like pizza. They also have other pizza flavors that would satisfy the vegetable and meat lovers.



Spaghetti Bolognese


Classic

Davao's newest food craze the egg waffles or also known as Hong Kong style waffles is also available here .It's the ultimate comfort food. It has vanilla ice cream, Pepero with M&M, chocolate drizzle and sprinkles on top. Available in Classic and Chocolate flavor.


Chocolate



Spaghetti Bolognese and Shrimp Aglio Olio are also a must try. They have generous toppings and the serving is good for more than one person but it still depends on your appetite.

Check out their new menu and try their new dishes which I believe will make you want to come back for more.
