The hot and dry season is back in the Philippines so together with the heatwaves, you need to take note of ways to prevent heat stroke which is one of the top reasons of fatality listed for deaths that occur during the driest parts of the year. Since there are a number of ways to fight off the heat during the dry season which we can easily lose track of, I’ve narrowed the list down to the three most important ones.

Drink Plenty of Water. I cannot stress enough how important it is for us to drink plenty of water. You’ll find this in all available blogs, reminders, news articles, etc. and they are there for a reason. Our body is made up of 70% water. And this water is what we lose when we sweat so to avoid dehydration which can lead to any number of complications that can be fatal. So drink, drink, drink your water is what I would say!

Always bring an umbrella. An umbrella is not just used to fight off rain, it also serves as your very own shade wherever you go so always, always bring an umbrella with you wherever you go. And if you are the type that tends to have an aversion against bringing lots of things, then the small fold-able umbrellas can be of better use to you. You can pick any fold-able umbrella up at any grocery or specialty stores at very good prices, much like darbuka at

Bring your very own fan. No matter where you go, you’ll always have that moment when you will have to stand in a location with no air-conditioning. Or worse, with no breeze but the hot humid weather. So you only need to stand for a full two minutes and you’ll be sweating from head to toe. Gross, right? Absolutely! So what can you bring which can help you cool down a bit? That’s right! Your own handy-dandy, fan! A fan is very small and you only need a very small space to fit it in your bag. So when you can, always have fan which you can bring everywhere you go.

So there you have it! All you need to remember to bring with you anywhere you go narrowed down to three easy to remember tips!


Say it with Confidence, #SayItWithSwish

We’ve all been there. In a party, in a gathering, or even in a meeting, when you’re about to speak but stop short because well. That delicious garlic bread is about to make itself known.

Yes, yes I know. Embarrassing. Oh where’s a mint when you need one?!

Well George has been there. About to pop Tanya a big question but hesitates. Hun, you gotta watch Swish’s new video to find out how George boosts his confidence and #SayItWithSwish


Readily available at your local Mercury Drug Store, Watson’s, Super Store, and in most groceries, Swish can be bought at P105 per 10ml travel handy bottle. I found Swish to be one of the best breath sprays that not only freshens breath but kills the bacteria that brushing doesn’t!

My Growing Family

As a professional makeup artist, my tools are as important as my skills since one can’t work without another. And the tools I use are, and I’m very proud to say this, growing! Yaaay!

Meet my weapons, my tools, my babies!

Meet my weapons, my tools, my babies!

I’m very proud to say that I have gained a lot of these babies to help me in my chosen profession. In my opinion, a sword can only fight so well as the hand that wields it so I always treat these with utmost care by ensuring that they are always sanitized since they are used on my clients’ skin. They are very impotant to me as JBL Speakers can be to a DJ, specially since the magic can’t happen with only half of the effort put through.

I also use most of these since, besides being a makeup artist, I am also a Customer Care consultant by day. So facing clients is a regular must, and I feel that being presentable is of an utmost importance!

In the next few blogs, I will also be feauring a few tutorials that I can share, specially since I found that there’s not very many makeup gurus who have skin like mine. Oily and tan. Now, since a lot of us Filipinas are on the tan side of the spectrum then I feel that I’d be able to help out just a bit! So I’ll see you around!
