An Intervention

Since I started doing the #100happydays challenge (currently on day 63!) I’ve been posting more religiously on Instagram. I was getting bored with my usual filters and effects because I post more than usual now. Enter my current app obsession: Line Camera.


I’m super obsessing over the Cherry Coco stamps and stickers (Sam even said I kind of look like her heehee) and started buying (eep!) them to decorate my photos. They instantly make any photo more kawaii, and more interesting. But starting today I vow to stop and I’m blogging about it as an intervention—please stop me from buying any more stickers!

Erin and I recently joined the #100happydays bandwagon and I’ve been noticing that I do feel happier and more appreciative of my life and the people around me. :) Here are some snippets from my challenge:



1. One of my favorite beauty brands, Dolly Wink, is now available in Manila! Hallelujah! No more hoarding for me. You can check out their merchandise in Yhansy, Shangri-la Mall.


2. A super kawaii Milky phone case. My good friend Tatin was nice enough to buy this for me in Hong Kong. I’m always on the lookout for a cute phone case, because it’s not as easy to find cases for my S4.

3. The Candy DIY book! Macy (and the rest of the DIY team) and I worked really hard on this and I really enjoyed it even if I’m not very crafty.  It will be out in stores soon for only P175.

Did any of you try the #100happydays challenge too? Share your happy moments with me! :)

The Five Minute Face

I’m totally guilty of rushing out the door looking like I just woke up. Sometimes I just don’t have the time to put on makeup or even brush my hair. In an attempt to look and dress better though, I’ve come up with a 5 minute foolproof plan to look more polished. :)


A swipe of lip gloss + a sweep of blush on the apples of your cheeks + apply mascara or lash essence = I made an effort although it literally took me 5 minutes! I’ve also been loving Canmake’s new products lately because they do the trick. <3 Got any more tips for me?

The Fault in Our Desks

I’ve been trying to redecorate my office wall because I’ve been bored, and also so I’ll feel more inspired to work. :) Found these amazing prints online:


c/o Kitkat Lastimosa (click on the image to see more of her amazing work!)

These are absolutely perfect because we at the Candy HQ are kind of obsessed with The Fault In Our Stars lately.

Got any ideas for room redecorations? Care to share any with me? :)

Accessorize more. That’s my silly New Year’s Resolution for 2014. I have so many little trinkets that I’ve forgotten because I haven’t worn them in forever. Does that ever happen to you? You buy a necklace or a ring, wear it for a few weeks then totally forget about it? Totally guilty of that. So I promise to try my best to wear my forgotten jewelry in an attempt to dress better too.



My bff also gave me these super cute necklace and bangle, which I’ll be overusing for sure. Here’s to accessorizing more in 2014!
