I'm Back!

So it's been a year and a few months since I left the Philippines. I promised myself I'd keep this blog active so I can document the whole thing and also keep the posts more "personal". The goal was basically hitting two birds with one stone, I get to easily update everyone about my life AND maintain my blog how it was before---less ads more original content. Win-win situation. Sounds great, right? 

But lots of things happened and I wasn't able to what I wanted to do. I've been working two jobs non-stop like crazy. Picture this - I used to work 14.5 hours a day before! My only "personal time" was limited to biphasic/polyphasic sleep and dinner. It realized it was THAT bad when I had to choose between a taking a cat nap, having lunch or a quick shower. I was burned out, lack of sleep and fatigue was the norm for me. I knew I had to stop when I realize I was breathing very audibly, found it difficult to breathe and had more chest pains than usual. Really scary. 

Fast forward to now, I think I'm doing a lot better. 

Reasons Why I Was on Hiatus:
1.) Lack of time - I don't have two jobs anymore so I'm not as busy as I am now.
2.) Slow unreliable laptop - I bought a super powerful gaming laptop last year yay!
3.) No local events to attend - I figured I can make my own content without it, not a problem.
4.) Creative block - I'm in desperate need of a creative outlet right now.

Basically, I ran out of excuses as to why I'm not blogging anymore. I think it's a perfect time to come back. 

For now, I don't have much to share mainly because I have no idea where to start. Seriously. Some of the things that I'm still working at most of the time is purely adjusting here. From what I've been told, California isn't as bad as most states in the East coast. However, growing up in a tropical country... everything seems to be cold to me. Really.

Like I said in a previous post, I don't get to use the things I've accumulated in the Philippines just for the reason. So when I got back here again, I left behind a bunch of stuff there. Ended buying new things that I thought might suit the weather here better (a perfectly valid excuse to splurge lol). Here's some of the things I'm currently trying out:

Skincare Products

COSRX Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser

The Ordinary Buffet & The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% 

The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution

Anti Aging Peptide Eye Cream By Alana Mitchell

Organic Rosehip Seed Oil by Sky Organics

USDA Organic Vegetable Glycerin, Dead Sea Mud Mask & 100% Pure African Black Soap by Spa Organics

Foxbrim Organic Castor Oil

Contact Lenses

Hubble Contact Lenses

O-Lens Bling Some in Coral Pink & O-Lens Symphony Green

Waldo Contact Lenses


I have more stuff I'm currently trying out but these are the ones I like so far. Someone please cancel my Amazon Prime subscription or at least hide my cards! Just kidding! Hahahahaha. Not sure if there's people still reading my blog. If you're reading this, thank you so much for the support! I'm just so happy to be back!
