Edwin Wilwayco Book Launch at Leon Gallery


Fatima University Gallery Foundation is launching a coffee table book that features one of the country's leading visual and abstract artists, Edwin Wilwayco. The book highlights his works for four decades as a Master Abstractionist.


The book, simply entitled “Edwin Wilwayco”, brings to the fore the struggles of a young artist, early deciding that abstraction was the idiom in which he could best express himself, despite his graphic facility and fluency in representational art. 



Absorbing the inevitable influences of his college mentors, and enlightened by the entire history of abstraction, from Wassily Kandinsky down to Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning, Wilwayco synthesized, distilled and drew, from his own experimental alchemy, his own trademark characteristics of brushstrokes, gestural marks, formal motifs, and vibrant chromatics.

Skin Potions Review Part 2

You know how I love this Filipino brand, Skin Potions. :) If you haven't read my blog about it, here is the link: Skin Potions Review.


Since I already hit the pan of my Serum, and recently had breakouts because of humid weather here in the Philippines, I went to the nearest Skin Potions kiosk.

These are the products I bought: :)


1. Skin Potions Tomato Juice Serum


On top of my list is my all-time favorite, Tomato Serum! Yey! :) Here's the link of my review: Skin Potions Tomato Juice Serum Review


They actually have new pump bottle design, from 30 ml to 50 ml, but with same formula like before: Lycopene, Tomato Extract, Witch Hazel Extract, Collagen, Aloe Vera, Vitamin C. :)

Sangobion holds biggest blood health event for new campaign

This year is shaping up to be a big one for anemia-fighting iron supplement, Sangobion IRON+ (Ferrous gluconate+vitamins & minerals). After successful years of helping Filipinos overcome iron deficiency anemia, it recently launched another large-scale campaign featuring its long-time ambassador, Sarah Geronimo. Held at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall, this record-breaking blood health event, back-to-back with a star-studded concert, was rightfully called “Sulong Dugong Pinoy Blood Health Event.”


The event was an avenue for Filipinos from all over to have their blood checked, in line with Sangobion’s goal of transforming the nation with healthy blood, one person at a time.

Sangobion Sulong Dugong Pinoy is part of Merck Consumer Health’s (maker of Sangobion) WE100 initiative. This aims to help prepare society for a new era of people who live to a hundred years. It is rooted on the belief that living more years should also mean living a life that is healthy and fulfilling. This is the vision for all generations. By offering quality products, providing activities, and holding events such as Sulong Dugong Pinoy, Merck strives to measure up to the WE100 objective of helping society live 100 years. 


In the words of Ming Arroyo-Cunanan, Merck Head of Marketing, “The goal is to really push for the importance of having healthy, anemia-free blood. We believe that if every Filipino realizes the power of having healthy blood, then we will be able to take significant steps toward the rise of our nation.”

FS Cosmetics Haul

Hi! :)


Today I'll be sharing you my recent top favorites, which also happen to be a H-A-U-L! :)


FS Cosmetics

FS Cosmetics is a Philippine makeup brand that had its beginnings in November 2003.

The brand is owned by Mr. Edmon Ngo, the scion of a pioneer in the Philippine cosmetic industry, who launched his own company, Cosmetics Revelation Corporation, that honors integrity and excellence and that draws from the solid experience of his parents’ company.

I first heard of this brand through my former classmates who are make up fanatics. I first tried their two way cake and fell inlove with it. In fact, I still haven't found a better local product than this, until now. :)

Two-way Cake

Acording to makeupforlife.net, Two Way Cakes, also known as Wet/Dry Powder Foundations in the West, are similar to pressed powders, come in a compact and are the most versatile. They can be used wet and dry as a foundation or for touch-ups. Applying them wet tend to give heavier coverage while applying them dry will give a sheerer effect.




MY FAVORITE!! :) I've been using this product for 4 years. Would you believe that? :)

What I love about this product:

1. Matte finish.

2. No make-up look finish. We all know that I don't like a foundation or cosmetic that would like I'm wearing one. 

3. Doesn't give whitecast.

4. Full coverage. Say hello to poreless skin! Bye blemishes! :)


5. Unlike other cosmetics, this product doesn't easily remove from face. It actually sets while you perspire. I could compare the look to "baked look" after blotting. :)

6. A refill could last up to 3 months of everyday use. Not bad. :)

7. Affordable! Other bloggers say that it is a Mac dupe. :) Can't compare it, for I haven't tried Mac yet. Nonetheless, it is affordable. :)
