Blacks and The Peach Box

Accessories can always make or break an outfit. It's important to know what accessories to wear to hype up your outfit or just to simply make a statement out of it. I have to admit that sometimes I am guilty when it comes to over-accessorizing and it's a big NO because it just makes your outfit look terrible or in other words, an eyesore. *gasp* I learned that less is more when it comes to accessories; You can't wear a pair of dangling earrings over a gigantic necklace or a set of bracelets with different designs. Just like your fashion style, your accessories will also represent you since it's a part of your outfit and a part of you -- how you managed to make your look better with accessories. 

That's why I'd love to share with you guys an Australian brand that offers various styles of accessories from chic to modern to edgy. The Peach Box is an online fashion jewelry destination not just for bloggers, but to everyone. Especially now that they have widen their collection by adding their sister brand, Marc Bale that caters both men and women versatile timepiece needs. The Peach Box has pieces that you can't resist to buy and here are my two top picks from their collection.

Bedazzling Bezels Crystal
I always opted to invest in classic timeless pieces and this particular necklace just brings out the feminine side of me. It has 7 bedazzling crystals that can make even a simple outfit pop out.

Roman Empress Bangle in Gold
When it comes to versatility, this bangle is a perfect choice. It can be pulled off in any outfit, whether it be casual or formal or even edgy. It can stand out even without being paired with a watch.

I have found my two new favorite accessories and you can find yours too at www.ThePeachBox.com. Feel free to use my code "tpb-dhencayabyab" to slash off 15% on your purchase!

The Cream Factory SPArty

After long hours of duty, writing papers, doing blog posts and everything else in between, the best way to relieve my stress is to have a SPArty! I'm glad to be one of the chosen bloggers of The Real Deal Company and The Cream Factory to have a brunch spa party with Miss Earth 2015, Angelia Ong. It was such an awesome experience because we were able to have first class spa treatment at their newly opened office. Mind you, it doesn't look like an office at all. Kudos to the architect and interior designer!

Moreover, the event was filled with fun and surprises. I was able to have a tour at their office and it was the owner herself who showed me the shower rooms, spa area and sauna. They even have an outdoor shower room which has a Japanese zen vibes. During the event, I had a hand scrub treatment using their creamy scrub in Goat's Milk and Honey while having wine and cheese at 10 am in the morning! A perfect way to destress, right? And even had brunch after the spa session. *yay for food* 

I've been using their products for four days now and I have to say that it really lives up to it's name. I am very impressed with the products of The Cream Factory - Dessert for Skin, it does keep my skin moisturized and the body scrubs doesn't have that flaky after effect. And yes, it is a dessert for skin because they just smell so good like real food! Just a note to everyone, contain yourself from eating their products when you use them especially with the Goat's Milk & Cinnamon bath cream. I'm loving and indulging myself to these products! I hope you guys give it a try because it's worth every peso! ;)

Bobbi Brown Make Up Session with Tamara Pineda

I know I've been MIA for weeks now and I've been passing up some events due to conflict of schedule. But, no worries because I'll be updating my Instagram and blog more often than these past weeks! ;)

So, here's a quick blog post for the make up session that I had last February 17 at Shangri-La, Makati. I was one of the lucky bloggers that was picked by MEGA Style, the web source for the latest in fashion and beauty, style ideas, shopping, popular culture and events of MEGA Magazine to have a one-on-one make up session with Tamara Pineda. She is the woman behind #TamaraDoesMakeUp and probably the best trained make up artist of Bobbi Brown cosmetics. It is a given fact for all the make up junkies that Bobbi Brown Cosmetics is one of the leading make up brands in the US and Bobbi Brown herself believes that "Beautiful makeup starts with beautiful skin." and I was able to unlock Bobbi's secret to perfect skin. Props to the pro, Tarama Pineda!

1. Always start with a clean face.
This has been a golden rule for every ladies. Always wash your face first to remove dirt and excess oil on your face before putting make-up or anything else. 


2. Tone - moisturize - prime!
Most of us usually skip these 3 steps but these actually helps us on giving extra care on our skin.

Toner for extra cleansing, moisturizer for non-dry skin and primer to help make up last longer.

  • Find the perfect toner for your skin. It must be gentle on your skin with no sting feeling.
  • Know your skin type before purchasing a moisturizer. You don't want to look greasy after a couple of hours when you applied your moisturizer.
  •   Look for the best primer that suits you - it could be gel or cream based.

Yes, this must be the most important rule of them all. When it comes to achieving a flawless make-up whether it's for foundation, concealer, blush or lipstick; finding your right shade is a must!

  • Foundation: Swatch two to three shades closest to your skin tone. Swatch them on the side of your face between your chin and neck. The one that seems to appear invisible is the right shade for you.
  • Concealer: Stick to the ones near to your foundation shade and never use a lighter shade on blemishes and pimple marks because you're not concealing it. It just makes the mark more visible by applying too much product on the part which the tendency is it's lighter than the rest of your face.
  • Blush: Worrying if your blush is too light or too red for you? Just pinch the apples of your cheeks and the shade that pops out is the secret to your perfect natural looking blush.
  • Lipstick: Know your undertone and base your lipstick shade on your skin tone.

Now that I have shared my experience and some tips that I learned from my make up session, do give it a try the next time you put your make up on. But, remember to invest on your skin rather than the make ups your using.
