Face: SkinCare Routine - How to make it effective?

I'm sure each of us has our own "go to" products that is best for our skin. Have you discovered any favorites yet?  If so, how do you know if it's effective? Decisions...decisions... after trying quite a lot of products, I finally found the one that works best for me.

But before choosing any of those products, where do we really start? Here's a simple tip that might be helpful!:)

Know your skin type: NormalDry, Oily, Sensitive , or any Combination

Alright, once you know your skin type, it's time to find the perfect products - Don't forget to check the label!:) 

Here are my Face: Skincare Routine products that works best for my skin type. (Remember to only use products that is best for your skin.)

  • Olay Facial Wash - It is super soft foaming cleanser. Really gentle for your skin, specially if you have a sensitive skin.
  • BlackHead Scrub - I used facial scrub from time to time to deep clean the pores and to make it extra clean aside from facial wash. I always use different brand since I am trying out new products. I'm currently trying out this Target brand Up&Up. So far, so good.
  • Biore Pore Strips - I've always been using this brand ever since, it works wonders. I only use the nose strips, and sometimes, I used it after cleaning my face with facial scrub. It seems like it's getting more stuff that way. Have you tried that step?
  • Olay Complete Moisturizer - This product is the best, no matter what your skin type is, we need to put moisturizer. Even better because this one has a sunscreen too. I have an in depth review of this product here.
  • ELF Face Primer - I haven't talk too much about this product yet, but I will have a review about it soon. Face Primer is definitely a great product to put before adding any make up on your face. Basically it seals pores, and keeps your make -up flawless and nice.
  • Petroleum Jelly - We definitely need to take care of our lips as well. I always apply it everyday and no more dry lips!:) You can also apply this before applying your matte lipstick, if you think your lipstick is too dry / too matte.
Any face skincare products you're loving these days? I'm always looking for some new products to try. Please share it in the comment section below!:)

As always, so glad you stop by!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!:)

Hello everyone! Holiday is fast approaching. I'm pretty sure some of you is already starting making a Christmas lists that you need to get for your love ones.:) But hey! Whatever you've been doing that keeps you busy - Don't forget to take a break, relax, and just take it one step at a time.:)

It is a busy month in my household, aside from all those Christmas shopping that is needed to be done early. We have two birthdays this month- that would be me & my daughter's!:) She's having a party wih school friends, so the preparation actually started since last month (October), Yay!.

But let me share with you the things that keeps me motivated when I need a little break.:)

  • SAMSUNG GALAXY TABLET S2 9.7" - I 've never been a techy kind of person, I was even late on a bandwagon of having a smart phone (lol). As most of you know, I run a small business on my spare time, and I finally was able to invest this tab just this year from the money that I saved from my business. This is another perfect addition that I needed for my small business. Everytime I look at it, it keeps me going & reminding me that just work hard, and everything will follow.:)

  • MUSIC - Take me back to 80's & 90's songs!:) Music is close to my heart, ever since I was a little girl, singing is one of the things I enjoyed the most.:) Although I do have favorite musics/artists these days, I still do listen to my favorite songs from 80's & 90's!:) I'm a little bit old school!lol

Now it's your turn!:) What are the things you enjoyed the most on your spare time?

Fashion vs Style: How to Define Your Style?

I have been into different phases when it comes to fashion. I guess, it's just a matter of time!:) We've all been into time where we always try what's on trend everytime (nope, nothing wrong with that.).

Sometimes it works at the same time for me, by finding a fashion piece/s that works on my style!:)

But which one are you? 1.) Always follow what's on fashion trend? 2.) Or stick to your own style that defines you? - I have to say that when I was younger, I'm on No.1 - always follow the fashion trend, which is really fun and a great way to try new / current style that's out there. But that change as I grow older. I keep going back to this certain style that is just simple , basic, & classic. I chose comfort over anything else. And that's how I know that this is really how I define my style. I couldn't be more happier!:)

I created some boards in my pinterest that will inspire me more when it comes to organizing my wardrobe. Pieces that I can mix & match. Or pieces that is still missing.

I'm very inspired and slowly adding more inspiration in every board. I hope you can check out those links to see them upclose.:)

They are pretty minimal when it comes to pattern, I prefer just solid color with some fun / interesting details here & there. And if there is a kind of pattern, it will be stripes , plaid, or some kind of texture on the fabric.:)

This board is focusing more on the formal wear that is perfect for work or formal occasions.
Now it's your turn!:) How do you define your style? Which style do you keep going back to? 
There is definitely no right or wrong here - to each has own!:) 

Thanks again for joining me today!:)
I hope you can visit me on my Pinterest to check each Boards. 

As always, so glad you stop by!:)
