Here’s why being healthy requires money.

wolf-hound

Have you ever wanted to pursue a healthy lifestyle but always find yourself failing at it? That might either be because you’re not committed enough, you’re lazy, or that you don’t have enough money to maintain it.

Now I know I may sound like someone who is making excuses. I am failing at maintaining a healthy lifestyle and I’ve always thought that I am pathetically losing every battle because I’m a bum who doesn’t want to move her ass off the couch thus, resulting to me being overweight in certain areas of my body. And by certain areas of my body I actually mean, my whole body.

Okay fine, I may not be overweight as of the moment but I do know that my body is not on its prime state and if it continues being so, I may go back to being “that fat kid”. I am not trying to condone those who doesn’t have the ideal body that our society imposes, I am honestly against bullying and body shaming; but let’s all be honest that being fat may expose one to more health risks than one who has a healthy body—and the same thing goes for those who are super skinny.

I grew up overweight and I didn’t start losing the unwanted weight until I was on my first year of high school. Numerous relatives from my father’s side are either overweight or obese and because of that, I want to keep a healthy body. However, I always seem to fail.

20 Beauty Questions Tag

20-beauty-questions-tag
Okay, short disclaimer. I’m no beauty expert nor makeup guru so the answers you’ll see down below would be coming from a 19 year old stressed college student who knows nothing about professional skin care or makeup. So don’t you dare expect some fancy-a** tips here. Love you!

Hello guys! Sorry for being MIA for a while. I wasn’t able to keep up with my academic life and blogging went totally out of the picture. But since I have a few hours to spare today, let me tell you that I missed you all!!! *hugs and kisses*

I found this Beauty Questions tag at this blog and thought that since I can’t really write anything that’s with great thought and conceptualization at the moment, this kind of tag would do. Hope you like it and I promise I’ll post something nice soon!

 

SKINCARE

How many times do you wash your face every day?

– It depends on how oily and dirty I get but I’d say twice a day is my average.

What skin type do you have? (dry, oily, or combination)

-Unfortunately I have a very oily skin.

What is your current facial wash?

-I’m using the free kojic soap that comes with the Dr. Alvin’s Rejuvinating Set.

Do you exfoliate?

-No. Maybe that’s why I have such a bad skin.

What brand of soap do you use?

-I’m currently using SkinWhite (the one with Papaya Extract) but what I actually love is the green one from Silka. It smells so damn good! You should try it!

What moisturizer do you use?

-If you’ve been reading my blogs, then you’ll know that I’m obsessed with iWhite Korea’s Aqua Moisturizer.

Do you have freckles?

-I wish. But no, I only have pimples *cries*.

Do you use eye creams?

-No, but I do use 4 in 1 night cream and some anti-aging eye roller.

Are you prone to acne?

-Yes, it runs in the blood *cries again*.

What’s your favorite skin care product?

-I guess it would be Dr. Alvin’s Rejuv Set. It really does wonders. (I’ll show you once my skin’s fully rejuvenated).


MAKEUP

What foundation do you use?

-I don’t regularly use foundations (since it makes my acne go from acne to ACNE!!!!) but my current foundation is Mac’s Studio Fix at NC35.

How about concealer?

-Don’t really know how to use one….

Do you know your undertone?

-Nope. I just know that I’m Morena. That’s it.

What do you think of fake eyelashes?

-I like what they do to my eyes but I can’t commit to putting one everyday. It’s too much work for a lazy bum like me.

Did you know that you’re supposed to change your mascara every 3 months?

-Of course!……..I just don’t do it.

What brand of Mascara do you use?

-Maybelline.

What is your favorite eyeshadow shade?

-Neutrals. Anything neutral. (Brown, Taupe, Cream)

Do you use pencil or liquid eyeliner?

-Both. But I do use liquid ones more.

How often do you poke your eyes with an eyeliner?

-Not much. I’M A PRO! Lol, totally kidding. But srsly, not that much.

Name a makeup crime that you hate.

-Ooooh. I hate uber dark and thick eyebrows. You know those girls channeling their inner Cara Delevingne? If you’re one of them… Girl, it just doesn’t work for everyone.

Product Review: iWhite Korea Aqua Moisturizer

 

product
I’ve been eyeing this moisturizer from iWhite Korea for quite some time now. Aside from its cute packaging, amazing reviews, and affordable price, what attracted me the most to try this product out is the fact that it’s available in a sachet. This is great especially for college students on a budget like me since we can test it out first to see if it suits us without having to buy an entire bottle.

This Aqua Moisturizer is just one amongst the vast beauty products that iWhite offers. They have everything from BB Creams, Whitening Creams, Nose Packs, and a whole lot more––all available as a sachet!

(On the front part it says that this moisturizer “deeply hydrates with non-greasy formula” which is understandable since this is a water-based moisturizer.)

This is very affordable for only ₱20.00/6ml sachet (bought mine at our town’s Mercury Drugstore) but I believe it’s  ₱23.00/6ml sachet at Watsons, and according to my research, you can get the full-sized bottle for only ₱120.00––still affordable though.
