    Though late in the year, your post about your taal Vista food trip (http://www.askmewhats.com/2012/12/weekend-food-trip-at-taal-vista-hotel.html) shared by another blogger is what caught my attention and made me discover your wonderful blog. And I've been enjoying receiving since then your reviews and ideas (and adventures) as well as reading some back posts (mostly cosmetics reviews) and your posts. I have been curious about the BDJ box for some time now and thanks to you I know what the box contains haha!

    I love reading your Eureka Moments, its a great way of looking for something less expensive but works well. I also love reading your bloggers events since I might not be familiar with other bloggers but with your posts, I started to read other bloggers as well. Then lastly, I love reading your food tripping with Mr. AMW, it helps me to check restaurants worth visiting and of course what to eat. Happy New Year...

    My favorite post so far is your aftermath about pregnancy because I am also preggy right now, just like you. I'm 34 weeks and also a first time mom :)

  7. Shelviana H
    i like http://www.askmewhats.com/2012/05/some-changes-on-my-skincare-regimen.html because i'm so curious about clarins and your skin care regimes >w<

  8. Raine Rafael rainerafael@ovi.com
    My favorite so far is your Fairydrops Base Mascara! :) I'm a newbie in wearing false eyelashes and I've always had a problem in removing waterproof mascara. When I read this on your post: "If applied before the waterproof mascara, one can easily remove the waterproof mascara with lukewarm water." I was like, YAY! And the vanilla scent is an added bonus, too!

  9. The one that caught my attention is you being pregnant!! I was just so happy knowing you will have little AMW and then a month later, little did I know I was also pregnant.. :) :)

    Your Php88 Makeup Belt Tool Eureka Moment! and Basement Academy posts! I got really inspired by the avant-garde look you did; parang Mystique ang peg. Since then I've been rooting for that makeup school for when I study makeup this year after graduation!

    when you introduced lil' AMW! im so happy and excited for you sis! another blessing to look forward to!

  14. What I love the most is your post on how to apply nail polish the right way. I had a hard time applying polishes before and when I read your post on how to do it right, it was then a piece of cupcake! So easy. Thanks for the tips! Let me also add that it was the first post I read from your blog years ago and I became a fan ever since.

    Happy 2013!

  17. I'm a fan of your wedding makeup gig posts! I love how you showed the pre-makeup look and then explained the steps needed to achieve the desired wedding looks of the bride, groom, and their family. I also appreciate that you always remind us readers to "Smile"! Funny but I actually smile when I read that from you. Happy new year Ms. Nikki! :)

  18. I will always be a fan of your EUREKA moments. SObrang naeenjoy ko talaga basahin. Most especially if the products are affordable. Double YEHEY! :) and I Love your eyeshadow application tutorial/photos. Madami talaga kong natutunan. I even remembered saving your eye chart so I can have reference when I'm trying eyeshadows for the first time. :) Thanks a lot for that and for all your posts.

  19. happy new year to u sis!!! glad that 2012 ended really well for u :D and i can't wait to meet baby AMW!

  20. Maria Louella Dalistan

    I like the one with your Getaway to Nasugbu Batangas :)

  21. I enjoy reading your blog since 2011. But I really got inspired at your July '12 Wedding Makeover Blog. I tweeted you right after I read the blog (July 26'12 9:18am). Sobrang bilib ako sa transformation. Then you replied "I think at the end of the day, it takes practice, and I mean lots of that :) You can do it! :) try lang ng try!" Because of that, I buy and tried learning how to use make-up and make-up brushes by following your tips. I buy stuff one at the time and try to imitate your technique and experimenting in blending colors. (And hubby thinks I'm becoming a make-up hoarder-been buying new make-up every now and then). And you’re right... It takes a lot of patience and practice to do great make-up. My “artistry” was put into test when I have to do my BOSS' make-up for our company Christmas Party (my boss is too lazy to go to the parlor so she asked me to do for her since she noticed my make-up was really nice). How can I say NO? Of course I have to do it! I was so nervous but I was able to pull it off! Now I'm confident that I can do my own (and other people's) make-up.And I really owe it to you AMW. Thank you so much for the encouragement and sharing your knowledge. Love all of your post - can't wait to see Baby AMW! Keep on inspiring women!

    BTW, I really want to win the planner… iba pa rin ang dating kung galing kay Ms. AMW! Idol!

  23. I've been a fan of your blog for nearly five years! It started with the post on Face Shop Changpo product line. Since then, I've been following your blog regularly. I'm also an avid fan of your Eureka Moment, because it showcases great ideas, most of which are quite affordable.

    Second it the Estee Lauder.
    I was looking forward for the Estee Lauder make up kit blog. It was one of my dream to own a make-up from Estee .. Their FB page did not met the target fan likes. i guess they wont be drawing any winner. sayang.

    I really envy (co-)bloggers like you for really having their time to regularly maintain their blogs. I really hope I can find more time this 2013. But, what I really love most on your posts is your Taal Vista + Giveaway post. You are really successful in conveying the tagline " We've got it all for you!" I really hope my family and I can share the same experience that you're family had during your stay at Taal Vista!...soon! :)

    God bless and Happy New Year! :-)

  40. claire sereno

    My favorite post you have is the silka post giveaway last year. It is the reason I notice your blog. i even joined it but posted in the wrong area (hehehe). The second would be the giveaway of avon products because I won in it. i am using it now and loving it!
