21 things + 1st month of blogging!

Ciao, it’s Chams!

Today marks my first month of blogging and I’m literally in shock because of the little achievements I’ve made in the past month. I decided to write 21 things about me and a small appreciation post for you all, to celebrate my first month here in the Blogosphere. 💛 Continue reading 21 things + 1st month of blogging!

For my future self

Ciao, it’s Chams!

Today, I made a visual journal for myself. I got this inspiration from Conan Gray’s Me at 17 video. I think it’s really nice to have this kind of keepsake that I could look back on when I get older (hopefully successful) and tell myself, “Remember how you weren’t able to put your life together then? Look at you now!” Continue reading For my future self

Favorite Pinoy Indie Film

[ first blog post ko ‘to in Filipino kaya nae-excite ako ]

Ako yung tao na hindi mahilig manood ng pelikula. May iba kasi akong kilala na lahat yata ng titles eh alam nila at napanood na. Mas gusto ko pa magbasa o di kaya manood ng TV series na 22 minutes lang tumatagal. Sa tingin ko, baka kasi maiksi yung attention span ko. Pero lately, sobrang nagugustuhan ko manood ng Pinoy indie film. Mas may substance kasi, may art, at higit sa lahat, may buhay.

Nakapanood na din naman ako ng ibang local film, pero umay talaga eh. Lalo yung pinapalabas kapag MMFF, alam mo yung sobrang pinilit na mairaos yung production at ang daming product placement? Kakainis diba. Hindi ko sure kung pelikula ba pinapanood ko o 90-minute commercial. Continue reading Favorite Pinoy Indie Film

Takeaways from the book, I Declare

Ciao! It’s Chams. Welcome back to my blog.

It’s been a while since I last posted an inspirational blog for you all. I was overwhelmed with the amount of positive responses from my Sunday Devotional and how it helped others to get through their daily struggle and how it reminded them of His love. For today’s post, I want to share with you excerpts and some of my learning from Joel Osteen’s book, I Declare. It has 31 different promises to speak over each day and will help you be in a positive state of mind as well as strengthening your faith in God.

Portrait Sessions Vol. I

Ciao! It’s Chams.

If you’ve been following me around, you’ll know that I am really into portraits. I made a post about my portrait photography story before and this time, I’m so excited to share with you all another set of photos I took.

So, I just bought my first prime lens earlier this week and I’m really excited to do some test shots. It is a Canon 50mm f1.8 prime lens that I bought for a very cheap price. As usual, I asked my friend Pauline to shoot with me. We didn’t have any location in mind, so we just randomly took photos on the mall we were in.

Luckily, we found Timezone and the lights from the arcade were so beautiful! The neon lights really gave out life in every photos. I was really trying to edit like Brandon Woelfel but this is all that I can come up with. Continue reading Portrait Sessions Vol. I

Mini Make-Up Stash

Ciao, it’s Chams!

Welcome back to my blog! This is going to be quick though.

Yesterday, my sister and I went out to buy new make-up products because we ran out of our essentials. Basically, we share the same stuff all the time, and I think that’s pretty normal for anyone who has a sister.


What I got

Processed with VSCO with k3 preset

 

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Matte + Poreless 

[ in the shade 220 – Natural Beige ]

I’ve been seeing this product all over lately and the reviews were all great! This is almost comparable to the L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte, though they have their own pros and cons in terms of the matte finish and their coverage. We were really planning to get the Infallible, but it wasn’t on Sale so we got Fit Me instead. But we have no regrets, this product is amazing and it’s definitely worth the price. It also has better finish after you bake it with translucent powder. Must try!

 

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer 

[ in the shade 35 – Deep ]

To be honest, this is my first time owning a concealer. I know, I know, don’t judge me. I’m 22, and this is my first time getting a concealer. But, I fell in love with this product right away! It really hides my pimple marks and other discolorations on my face. The sales lady asked me to get a shade slightly darker than my skin tone to provide more coverage. I always thought you have to choose the lighter one. Haha I’m not really a beauty expert, why the heck am I doing this.

 

Nichido True Colors Collection Powder Blush

[ in the shade Cool Rum ]

I always love buying Nichido blush powders, not only because it’s affordable, but because it’s long lasting! Nichido is actually my favourite drug store make-up because of it’s quality and value for money. The shade is a bit peachy, since peachy blush works best on my skin tone unlike the pink ones.

 

Aido Travel Kit Eyeshadow Palette

[ Color # 2 ]

It was not really in my head to buy an eyeshadow palette, but I saw this one and it’s super cheap and the colors are awesome! It includes 6 neutral eyeshadow colors perfect for a natural make-up look. It also comes with 2 blush powders. This is super ideal for travelling because you don’t have to bring multiple palettes for blush and eyeshadows. The colors are pigmented too and they really blend well.


I think these products will be my go-to make-up for this month of August! Hope you like this one! 🙂
