Sunshine Blogger Tag

Sigh. Life is getting busy especially with the grown-up-Maj-being-an-adult part. I've been having problems with my government documents, passport, SSS, ID’s etc. I promise to do a blog post about these when all the hustle is done.

Anyway I wasn’t supposed to write another blog until things cleared up but Danica tagged me in the Sunshine Blogger Award and well that made me (I had to force myself) to do a post and reply. I also figured I needed to write something because if I don’t, I’m pretty sure I’ll be incognito in this blog. So thank you Danica for tagging me because if you didn’t, well I’m pretty sure I've gone awol already. Haha.

The Rules:

1. Post a picture of the Sunshine Blogger Award (I just Googled an image or you can make your own)
2. Post 11 random facts about yourself
3. Answer 11 questions from the nominating blogger
4. Link back to the blogger who nominated you
5. Nominate 11 wonderful bloggers that you feel bring sunshine to the blogging world
6. Write 11 questions for your nominated bloggers

11 random facts about me:
  • I don’t like lip gloss. Why? Seriously, the weather here in the Philippines is just UGH. Lip gloss doesn’t suit this weather. I only use lip gloss when I’m abroad and even then, I still don’t like it. My hair sticks to it and that's just way so not pretty. So lip gloss is a no-no. I only have one and I have no idea why I kept it.
  • I didn’t wear blush until I was 22. I simply didn’t wear it because when I was younger I had acne in my cheeks and I didn’t want any product to touch my cheek area until it was all gone. Besides, I easily turn red when it’s hot so I didn’t have the “need” to wear it. But now that I’m 23 gosh why did I waste so much time not wearing it? Anyway, I love it. I love it and I want more haha.
  • My body isn't proportional. I’m thin. My arms are also thin (because it runs in the family) and my leg muscles are huge (I used to play a lot of sports). I used to be so insecure and didn’t wear shorts but I just figured I have to get over it. Sometimes I don’t wanna wear shorts because it’s one of those bad days but at times like this when it gets too hot I’m like whatever, I’m gonna show off my legs and wear shorts even if you look at my huge legs. And thank you to Constance Jablonski for being a role model for being thin and having huge leg muscles. She definitely gave me the confidence I needed. If she can pull that off, so can I.

  • I have a poster of Daniel Padilla in my room. I bought a few things at Bum just to get a poster. Yes, I have a crush on him despite me being older than him. Oh, and I don’t like Kathryn Bernardo. My only other Filipino crushes are Enchong Dee and Coco Martin.
  • I have a thing for the United Kingdom. I love the culture. I love the places. Can I just say that I love everything that has something to do with the UK? Ultimate dream is to go there one day. And I will :)
  • Most of my man crushes are British. Robert Pattinson, Andrew Garfield, Ed Westwick, David Beckham, Theo James, Nicholas Hoult. Even my women crushes are British. Kiera Knightley, Kaya Scodelario, Tanya Burr, Kate Moss, and Cara Delevingne.  
  • I’m definitely one of the boys. I am not a girly girl (this totally contradicts with my love for makeup!) I have a lot of guy friends growing up. I used to play tamia, bey blade, patintero, karate, marbles – yeah, you name it. Almost every guy stuff when I was younger. And I kicked and punched a boy when I was younger too. I don’t have a brother and I love the feeling of guy friends being protective of you when other guys show interest in you. They become the FBI and research and find gossip about people who wanna court me.
  • I love “dead” colors like white, black and grey. I have tons of dark colored shirts and just a few pastel or light colored shirts. I have this thing for colors looking washed out and dead. Oh gosh, if you only knew how many grey shirts I have. I probably have the so called 50 shades of grey haha. But my favorite colors are mint green, powder blue and grey.
  • Buttered Popcorn Addict.
  • My goal in life is to be a great mom and wife. I don’t have a dream in the corporate world  but I do have a dream in being a home maker. I still have no idea how to cook and drive but I’ll get to that one day because one of my daydreams is like picking up kids from school and preparing their snacks. Can I just fast forward to that? lol. 
  • I daydream about the zombie apocalypse. Seriously, I watched so many movies and series about zombies that I feel I can still survive if that day comes. Haha. I imagine stuff like how am I going to get food, create shelter, etc. I freaking know I’ll survive longer than other people would and that's all thanks to watching movies lol. 
I already did a tag similar to this so I tried very hard to make this a little different from my Get To Know Me post :)

Thank you Danica for nominating me! I would've gone awol for a month haha. You can check out this lovely girl and her post here.

Danica's questions for me:

1. What is your most favorite skin care brand? Why?

I used to have O’slee products and man that serum is like god sent. But I broke the bottle (I cried so much) and it’s hard to get it here in the Philippines, so I figured my answer to this question is Ponds. That blue oil control facial wash just works wonders for me. Also their detox cream, the yellow one definitely works. Not asap but it does lighten dark spots.

2. What product/s did breaks you out the most?

Any Clean and Clear product. Sorry, I just can't – I cannot put my hate into words. That's how much I hate it. The horrors!!!

3. What's your favorite movie this year?

So far, Captain America and Divergent (Gosh I just downloaded the book. I read The Hunger Games a long time ago and coz I just watched Four (Theo James) Divergent's on the reading list.)

4. Straight hair or Curly hair?

I have straight hair. I love to wear my hair with volume. I will never ever get my hair relaxed or rebonded or whatever. I like to put my hair up in a bun and after a few hours let it fall and take its own shape. I love it with volume. 

5. Can you share your day and night regimen?

Ponds oil control facial wash.
Maybelline baby lips.

Wet wipes to remove face and brow makeup.
Etude House line eraser for eyeshadow or eyeliner.
Ever Bilena makeup remover for lips.
Ponds oil control facial wash.
Eye cream or Celeteque moisturizer.
Maxipeel/Tretinoin twice or thrice a month.
Maybelline baby lips.

6. How do you stay fit and healthy?

I don’t. I’m not fit nor healthy. Haha. But I do drink warm tea and milk everyday.  I eat vegetables everyday and I also take vitamins every time I remember. I go up and down the stairs more than 25 times in a day.

7. Loose Powder or BB Cream?

BB Cream.

8. What blog posts do you prefer to read?

The Beauty Department.

9. What's your favorite magazine?

I prefer books. I don't read much magazines but I do read Teen Vogue, Cosmo or Seventeen whenever I see something interesting in my Facebook newsfeed.
