Beauty Spotlight: Innisfree

This article has been sitting quietly in my drafts for almost a year now. I updated this article a few days ago, but I guess I wasn’t able to save it (screw you, internet!) as I’m seeing the old write-up. :(

January In A Nutshell

2016, so far, has been all about…

Living on my own now. Sort of.
JP visiting me for a weekend because I miss him.
Trying to be healthy. I seldom eat rice now. Am I losing any weight? No idea.
Netflix is making me counter-productive.
Graphika Manila 2016. It’s my first time to attend GM and I didn’t expect the conference to be so much fun!
Flying to Iloilo for our annual anniversary getaway.
HOLY CRAP. 7 years as a couple.
Attending events, struggling to keep up with the press release, and all that so-called “perks” that comes with blogging.
I have a blog workshop on the 20th. Details to be posted soon.
U.K. VISA APPROVED!!!!!!!!!!
…and a new theme.
