Giving Back


If somebody told me three months upon starting this blog that I would have 50 readers I would have replied "FAT CHANCE!"

This blog is a product of my bored free time, rants, beauty stuff, and general nonsense so it's such a wonder why anyone would take the time to click on the follower's button. But thank you! It makes me feel so... fantastic. Like as if my posts really matter somewhat! LOL! Kidding.

So it's time for me to give back to the AWESOME PEOPLE list with a little GIVEAWAY because we all love giveaways! I personally love joining in all the fun, crazy, awesome giveaways from people that I follow. Mine will be just small, nothing too grand. I have one idea for the prizes, as I have a contact from Korea to buy me some Beauty Credit stuff.

I don't know if you've heard of Beauty Credit before, but you can check out some of the items at

I have the pressed powder in natural beige which I absolutely love!

Saving up for it! I want to buy some lippies, gloss and nail polishes for my giveaway!

In other news,

My sister is coming back from Japan and I kind of asked her to buy me some make-up to try like Shiseido's Majolica Majorca and Lioele. Hope she can find it (sis is not very well versed in make up) I'll save some of those loots to add to my giveaway? Or maybe for another giveaway!

Ooooo, I'm becoming addicted to giving away stuff! OOOO!

Well that's all for now folks, I am really excited to pull this through! I will pull through, I'm totally sure! Things are looking up and hopefully everything will be alright from now on.



We've been packing our stuff since last night to gather things that might be of use to people who are victims of Typhoon Ondoy in Luzon. We're far off from here in Mindanao, but we feel the crisis and the desperation of our fellow country men. We feel truly helpless as we are far off, we can't do much but gape and feel our hearts break for the men, women, and children who lost so so so much in this calamity.

We're donating clothes and blanket (no. 1 our list), and my dad is thinking of buying as much foldable umbrellas as well (harsh rain still is prevalent, as well as the heat of the scorching sun), some of our shoes, jackets, light reusable bags (my little nieces suggestions, since they see people not having bags to put whatever's left of their possessions)

My friends, classmates have text brigaded me to chip in 100 pesos each so we can donate them.

These things we do are so little in the face of such gravity of destruction and loss...

Please offer your prayers.
You can also help out via donations to the Red Cross/Red Crescent.


  1. A little goes a long way sis! I'm sure your donations will be greatly appreciated. I went to the supermarket earlier to buy food (mostly canned goods and bread, ready-to-eat foods are preferred than noodles because clean water is scarce) that I will donate through our company's CSR program. It's not much, but hopefully they can somehow alleviate the conditions of the victims.. What happened was really awful and heartbreaking, and I hope it will never happen again.

  2. Oo nga krissy... Just the extend of the damage, tapos its not as if it will be repaired in a week or two. It's going to take a lifetime for these families to recover and get back on their feet again.

    Naawa talaga ako sa lahat. Its so painful to watch on TV, ano na lang kaya if I was the one suffering like that? :(
