Make Up Store: Marble Eyeshadow (Rosso Asiago) & Cover All Mix (dark)

A few weeks back, was invited to the Make Up Store, Podium so we could learn about their brand and their products. I went with another WIM writer, Mimai, and together, we navigated our way through the trove of make up we found ourselves in. For someone who isn't into make up much (I find the whole application process taxing, usually), I had a lot of fun trying out their private course and learning about application

The Vikings Independence Day Feast

On June 12, the country celebrates Independence day. Of course, what comes with a holiday in the Filipino context would be a whole lot of feasting. 

Choco Pili Tart; Vikings Buffet SM Megamall
Vikings Buffet, a name that has fastly become familiar to the Filipino foodie, invited me and a few blogger friends to sample their Independence day menu. Feast your eyes on this spread.

On pedigree

Upseting to see how ignorant we can be about animals and how much we devalue dogs simply because of breed— standards of beauty set for these animals that even they are completely unaware about. 

There is no less love that an askal can give and no more love that a purebred dog is willing to give you. Sure, a dog’s pedigree may be responsible for certain traits but it does not define that animal, nor does it limit its capacity in any way. Every single dog has his or her own character and temperament which is, most of the time and more often than we know, attributable to the dog owner. Believing a silly notion that a dog, just because of breed, is better than their mixed breed counterpart is a sweeping generalisation. Believing that a dog is such because he is a certain breed is tantamount to believing something like Filipinos, just because they’re Filipinos, all are discriminatory idiots who assign value depending on pedigree. I’d like to think otherwise.
