One Lipstick Look

Busy girls in general, what’s your ultimate tip when it comes to makeup application when you only have a couple of minutes to spare?

Do you lug around a HUGE makeup bag for retouch?
Do you have to use different makeup products for each application?

If you answer YES to any of the 2 questions above, I will be your angel today!  

Here I am using only 2 products - a face powder and a lipstick to create this overall look!  Keep in mind I have full brows to begin with so I’m okay with only 2 products, if you don’t have brows, well, let’s add that extra step to fill in your brows and we’re ready to go!  Okay?

Before I share to you my 1 minute IGTV, I want to share the product I used - Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color in Cherry.

If you are on a look out for this brand, they have Gift of Love Pre-Sale Exclusive happening from January 22 to February 3, 2021 at Beauty by Lazmall!

Choose a pre-sale offer on Bobbi Brown Official Flagship Store in Lazada and pay for deposit from today until February 4.

Pay balance on February 5 to complete the purchase!

Max’s All-You-Can™ is back!


When I hear the name Max’s Restaurant, I always have good memories.  Every weekend, we would stroll at SM Sta. Mesa with my parents and dine at Max’s Restaurant because my dad loves the Fried Chicken so much we had to choose that place to make his tummy happy and contented.  I remembered saying: “No more chicken for me!” And ended up trying out their various dishes which I turn to really love!  I mean why are they called Max’s Fried Chicken when you can also call Max’s Fresh Lumpia, Fried Lumpia, Bulalo and so much more?  

And if like me, you prefer to try out different dishes per visit, this is a perfect time as Max’s All-You-Can Weekends is back!

Classic Max’s favorites available in ONE plate!

If like me, you have a kid/child and you are not comfortable to dine out, you don’t have to worry as you can always order A-La-Carte with my all-time favorites!

How To Amp Up Your Ponytail Hairstyle


I have been living in ponytail or bun for almost a year now.  My hair is growing longer and I try my best to make it stay away from my face especially if I am outside.  Less chances for contact with other people - the better.

With that, I combined my love for hairstyling and hair accessories and came up with this very simple ponytail style anyone can do!  

You can add more hair ties or lessen it depending on the length of your hair!  No hairspray needed, you get really nice hairstyle that reminded me of Princess Jasmine.

How do you like this look?

Do you have other hairstyles for ponytail in mind?

Stay happy!

Maintaining Dewy Skin Minus the Grease


Finally! Finally!  I am so excited to share I finally found a way NOT to set a foundation to make it stay Glowing minus the oily feel and look! 

Are you as excited as I am?

I am super excited considering I have dry, sallow skin.  I always like the Korean Glowing Skin that I see on K-Drama but living in a humid country like the Philippines prevents me to look like a star!

Make Up For Ever Reboot Foundation and Light Velvet Air Review

Let me revisit one of my favorite daily foundation from the brand called Make Up For Ever Reboot Foundation.  Ultra HD is my absolute favorite if I have to attend photoshoots, events or special occasions, but for daily, I find Ultra HD to be too “formal” for me so I prefer something with lesser coverage and more GLOW.  That’s were Reboot comes in!

Steamed Baguio Pechay Rolls Recipe


Dear AMW Friends,

It is Sunday...I always think more about food on weekends.  I’m not sure why, though I tend to rest more when it comes to cooking on weekends but I guess Sunday especially reminded me so much of family gatherings (Pre-COVID days) and we usually get together and bond over food.

After wanting to try Baguio Pechay Rolls for so long, I finally decided to go with it with a “Bahala Na” attitude.  I worry mostly for the fact that I can make a mistake and I’m feeding not just myself but a family of 5!  

My husband, my son and my neighbor in-laws!  They are very picky with the food they eat so I have to make sure I don’t go crazy with my trial and errors especially since I only have an hour to whip out this dish.

But I managed....I actually felt proud of this dish that’s why I’ve decided to share this recipe.


  • Pechay Wombok (can be cabbage)
  • Ground Pork
  • Light Soy Sauce
  • Oyster Sauce
  • Liquid Seasoning
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Sugar
  • Onion and Garlic
  • Spring Onions/Leeks
  • Ginger
  • Cornstarch
  • Mushrooms
Feel free to follow the steps in this quick video.

Happy Sunday!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
