Two days to go before the #CandyFair2014 and we at the Candy HQ are way beyond excited.  :x Sooo excited that I’m already planning what to bring! Keep in mind to bring only the essentials so you won’t be carrying a huge bag and you’ll be free to dance around all day.  See you there at the Metrotent on September 27!

When I first heard that the theme for the #CandyFair2014 was EDM, I had no idea what to wear whatsoever! Luckily, Erin’s style guide was super helpful. So I *think* I may have a Candy Fair outfit after all. This is what I’m planning to wear, EDM style but still my girly and classic self. Do you already have an outfit planned? See you there!  :beautifuleyes:

I want to see what you’re wearing, too! Post your #candyootd on Instagram and don’t forget to tag us @candymagdotcom and use the hashtag #candyEDM.

1. The Candy Cutiepedia Special. I know that you’re still on a high from the September issue but we’ve got even more for you this month! 100+ Hottest Boys? Yes please! My personal faves are Kim Soo Hyun, and The Vamps, of course!


2. I’m a huge K-pop fan and I would love to go back to Korea again and again! I was able to meet Kim Hyun Joong a few years ago and I felt like the luckiest girl in the world! Find out how you can go to Korea too. Click on the image to know more about how to be a Top Girl.


3. #CandyFair2014. Need I say more? I’m already stressing thinking about what to wear. How about you?  :x




Looks like September is turning out to be fantastic! <3


Why I Will Always Be A Beauty Junkie

I always tell myself that I will stop shopping for beauty products. So far I’ve been pretty successful, except for buying necessities like cotton pads but I guess my friends are just too nice because I always get random surprises from them! I met up with one of my besties recently and look what she gave me.




Lush’s Eau Roma toner which I super love because it’s awesome for my dry skin. It’s made of natural ingredients like lavender and rose. The scent is also very relaxing and makes you feel at ease immediately.
Laneige lipstick this is a teeny lipstick sample which is super cute. The color is an MLBB kind. I think I’ll save this for when my stash runs out.
K Palette’s 1 day magic liquid eyeliner Okay, I lied. I totes bought this one. But I’m running low on black liners, and this promises to be smudge-proof and has extra benefits like Hyaluronic Acid, Water Soluble Collagen, and Japanese Gentian Extract. Does that sound good or what?

This is why I will always be a beauty junkie.   XD

Nailing It

Going to nail salons is one of my favorite indulgences. I like to relax and read while having my nails done. One of my favorite nail salons is I Do Nails because they always play rom-coms and the couches are super comfy so you’ll really feel at ease. I’m so glad they opened another branch in McKinley Hill and it’s just as nice as their Eastwood branch. Macy and I had a relaxing time last Friday. I got a foot spa and a manicure.



Comfy couches and pretty wall decor.



Lots of polish to choose from. I love that they have Deborah Lippmann ones too!



Nicole (our former Beauty Editor at large) convinced me to try nail stamping. I’m a bit scared of nail art, so I got a super subtle rose accent on my index finger. I have to say I’m loving it so far! I also found it super cute that I Do Nails will lend you rings for your hand selfies. :)  I borrowed that cute bow ring from them. Can’t wait to go back to try other nail art designs!

Your resident beauty junkie,

I Do Nails is located at Ground floor, Building 1, Tuscany at McKinley Hill, Upper McKinley Road, McKinley Hill, Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.  You can also book an appointment through 09178388095.

Happy (almost) Halloween!

by: kaye, 2014-10-26

Fun Fact: Halloween is my favorite not-holiday. Every year, my sisters and I veg out on the couch with a gratuitous amount of candy and junk food, and a queue of classic spooky-but-not-scary...
