CBTL The Giving Journal 2017 Launch (October 21, 2016)

Hoooraaayyy, planner season is upon us!!! Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf proudly unveiled the designs of their planners this year. Their planners are more than just planners, they're called The Giving Journals for a reason. Every year, CBTL has a main beneficiary whom the proceeds of the planners' sale will go to. This year's main beneficiary is the Real Life Foundation, a social advocacy that aims to change lives through education.  

To give a brief profile as to what kind of foundation will benefit from your coffee addiction this year, the Real Life Foundation is a Christian non-profit NGO. It aims to provide better futures for underprivileged Filipinos through educational assistance and character development. The scholars under their program are not only sent to school (through monetary support), but are also coached in the areas of L.I.F.E. (Leadership, Integrity, Faith, Excellence)

My BeautyMNL Shopping Spree

In the advent of online shopping, I am generally happy that more and more sites are springing up that make beauty shopping for the Pinay much easier. Remember the days when it was sooo hard to get beauty products? Like if the product couldn't be found in malls, it basically was virtually nonexistent in the minds of consumers? Online shopping has really changed the way we discover, perceive, and try all sorts of brands. 

I am happy to be doing a mini post about BeautyMNL today! The site has been floating around since last year, but I think it's this year that the site has really gained traction amongst local beauty junkies. I actually knew of this place while I was interning in Unilever as my boss was like "oh let's put our new product in BeautyMNL." Before him saying that I didn't know that the place existed! But now they are among the key trade partners of most beauty brands in the country.

Silka Avocado Now in Sample Room!

For those who felt that Silka Shea smelled too sweet, rejoice! This is Silka Avocado, the latest from the number one in whitening. And it's now on Sample Room! I was reading reviews on Sample Room over Silka Shea to see how people felt about it. Opinion was split as some people hated sweet fragrances and complained that the products made them dizzy. Some on the other hand, like me, loved the variant soooo much. So I think this will receive less polarized reviews as this doesn't smell sweet. This, in a stark contrast, doesn't smell like avocado at all.

Charis Beautiful Journey in Korea Vlogs

Hey dolls!!!! I am sooo happy to have been part of Charis' Beautiful Journey in Korea last August. For those who are wondering, Charis is a platform that allows bloggers like me to be able to have a logistically feasible way for people to be able to get hold of the products I recommend. As a blogger, I have a Charis microsite (check out my site!!!) and people can buy the products I recommend. We were invited to Korea to learn more about Charis and to learn more about the brands that work with Charis, and I am so excited to be sharing a lot more about the products I got. For now, I want to just compile all the vlogs that I made while I was in Korea! Check them out!!!

Korea Diaries Day 4 (September 24, 2016)

Mari 2.0 says hiiiiiii!!! T'was my first time ever to go blonde and I was able to do it when the lovely peeps of Charis brought us to RaBeautyCore for a total makeover session! I had my makeup done in Korean style as well, so watch out for that in this post. But I think the blonde hair is already enough to catch a lot of people's attention hahahaha.
