OPPO: What’s your most memorable experience with a loved one?

Having a younger sister is a wonderful blessing. I can’t imagine myself living without her. She's my best friend and my life as well. As time passes by, I look back at all times we experienced together.

Twinning since we we're young. - 1996

Twinning until we reached our teenage years. - 2008

Sisters' bonding in Boracay. - 2009

The two of us have been intricately intertwined most of our lives. 



But....

The most memorable experience that we'll never forget was...



We travelled to South Korea all by ourselves for a week ! 🎉🎉🎉



I kept my long-time promise to her (since high school years) and brought her to South Korea. 😁



For better or for worse, through joy and sorrow, we will stand by with each other. No matter how old she gets, she is still my little sister. 😁 

A picture serves a memory that will last forever that's why I'm rooting for the new limited edition Oppo F5 Red


With its A.I. beauty recognition technology, I'm pretty sure that our photos will stand out in the most natural way. #OPPOF5 #CaptureTheRealYou

Product Review: Lucas' Papaw Ointment

Lucas' Papaw Ointment has been a rave for many celebrities such as Kim Chiu and Julia Baretto (to name a few). I just discovered it from their bag raid (Push.com.ph) with Darla Sauler.

***I'm actually fond of "What's in My Bag" articles and videos since 2011 and started from Cosmo Magazine online. 😅


Without further ado, this product was discovered by Dr. T.P. Lucas in 1906 because he believed that papaw was the finest natural medicine yet discovered. 

Lucas' Papaw Ointment is a petroleum-based product that has antibacterial properties, which can be used to treat minor burns, cuts, insect bites and stings. You can also use it as a lip balm for your cracked lips.


I'm hesitant to purchase it from somewhere else but when I checked the product from BeautyMNL, I gave it a try. You can check out this link if you want to purchase from there. 

Disclaimer: This is not a sponsored post.

I purchased the product yesterday (February 11, Sunday) and I got this product within 24 hours (February 12, Monday) !!! They do accept Cash-on-Delivery but they accept exact amount only and they don't carry a change (ever).





Overall, I love this product! I just used it now as my lip balm before I put my lipstick on. 


How about you? Have you tried the product?

Sunnies Specs Review: Reagan in Rose Gold

My vision is getting worse because of constant exposure to gadgets (computer and phone). I had 50/75 vision when I graduated college year 2012 until year 2016. I had my eye checked last February 2017 and I was shocked when I learned that my vision was not 50/75 anymore instead I have 100/100 vision! It's really shocking but I just accepted the fact. Imagine sitting in front of the computer and working for 8 hours or more. It's really given that I will have this grade.

I took prescription lenses from a certain optical clinic (I don't want to mention though) but unfortunately, it didn't last long. The frames got broken easily. For the record, this specs is my 4th eyeglasses for a span of one year. 😅


Without further ado, I decided to get a prescription eyewear last January 2018 from Sunnies Specs because I want to take care of my eyes. I got it from Alabang Town Center branch because it's near from my office.


All of the lenses are multicoated (anti-glare, anti-reflection, scratch-resistant, water-resistant and has UV protection) for the price of Php 1,999.00. But you can upgrade your lenses for a certain price. If you have constant exposure to gadgets, you can opt to upgrade it to Screen Safe. If you like to have a sleek and light lenses, you can opt to upgrade it to Ultrathin. If you want to have a double function (eyeglasses + sunglasses), you can choose to upgrade it to Sun Adaptive. If you want the frames to handle the strains, you can avail the High Impact.


What I love about Sunnies Specs is the eyewear styles are so trendy and very lightweight. They have different styles based on your face shape. How cool, right? I chose Reagan in Rose Gold because I have a square-shaped face. 

To check out the best and right pair for your face, check out this link from Sunnies Specs - Facebook Account.

Having an eyewear without ruining your style is a must, right?
