The Best Planner for 2019 – Limelight 365 Days of Awesome


In a few weeks this year is coming to an end and we all know what that means—FOOD—*cough* I mean we are approaching the year of the Earth Pig, which means a new year, a new set of resolutions NOT to follow and a new year to waste. Okay, I’m sorry, we should be optimistic here lol.

What better way to prepare for the New Year but to have your 2019 planner ready. Planners are essential to me because a lot of things happen and I go around a lot being a blogger and all, and I always want to plan them ahead by writing them down on my handy dandy planner. It took me a while to hunt for the perfect planner.

MISSHA Super Aqua Detoxifying Peeling Gel Review


An officemate who went to Korea this year came back with loads of K-Beauty Products. I happen to be looking for a good exfoliator that time and she was selling one of these. I am always in doubt with peeling products because I think they don’t really do a great job in peeling (and at times it doesn’t really 'peel' at all) but this one did an awesome job!

Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit (ESGS 2018)


Electronic Sports and Gaming Summit or ESGS is one of the biggest gaming conventions in Southeast Asia. It was my first time to attend the event and it was a blast! I am used to attending Cosplay and Anime conventions but ESGS is something new to me. A lot was going on (more than I’m used to but it was hella fun) which includes gaming competition/exhibition and video game and product exhibitions. Every turn, there is always something interesting to see.

And now, they collaborated with Get It Beauty—a popular Beauty TV Show in Korea for promoting one of their best sellers—the Real Fresh Skin Detoxers.

Prima Sassy Belle: Prima Curvetrim Slimming Juice


For 8 years, my weight always stayed at 50 kg, that is until March of this year. I started to gain weight in just 7 months I’ve reached 58 kg. I don’t fit my old jeans anymore and those that I couldn’t wear because they were too big for me now fit me perfectly. I hated it. I don’t feel confident with my body now and wanted to get back my old weight. I didn’t know where to begin though, as I didn’t have time to exercise. Prima Sassy Belle sent me a package of one of their best sellers: Prima Curvetrime Slimming Juice and I gave it a try.

Every time there is a celebration in our family, my Mom and Dad usually choose to eat at either Mang Inasal or Chowking (cough I’m open for sponsorships cough). Me and Kuya (older brother) wanted to try something new so we suggested to eat at SB Wings which I’ve been hearing a lot lately. They are famous for their Unlimited Wings and Fries too.

Be Part of Art: My Art In Island Birthday Adventure

www.sparklewanderandeat.com

This year has been full of blessings for my blog and my Youtube Channel and this month rained blessings on me. It’s my birthday month and I’ve just celebrated my  (5 x 3 + 5 / 2 +18 – 4) birthday (do the Math lol) last September 15. It was supposed to be the day of Wish Card’s Bloggers’ Meet 2018 and I was so excited to celebrate my birthday there but Ompong really just need to come and ruin it all.

Trivia: It rains on my birthday every year. I tell yah, EVERY YEAR.

Anyway, the event date was moved and thankfully it didn’t rain on us. We all got there dry and all prepped up for Wish Card’s Bloggers’ Meet 2018! Where? ART IN ISLAND of course!

Travel Goals? Passport First!

www.sparklewanderandeat.com

As Hans Christian Anderson once said, “To travel is to live”, we want to feel alive, fill life with experience and to have stories to tell. I’m sure a lot of us have their own ‘Travel Goals’, to see the world in a bigger picture and to reach as many places as we can.

A lot of carrier airlines support that dream of ours of travelling to countries we can only imagine at really low costs through their ‘piso fares’. They allow us to plan ahead and save a huge amount of money that we may be able to use with all the other necessities such as accommodation, food and some other activities you may want to do in the duration of your travel.

But before you get carried away with all the planning, there is one thing you need to process first. You guessed it right, a PHILIPPINE PASSPORT. This is the most important thing you need if you are planning to go on a trip overseas. Keep reading and I’ll tell you how to get one.

Lava Mocha Pony Cafe in Angono


As I have mentioned in my Life Lately post, I had a ‘kawaii-filled’ day with my bruh Tony last month. We went to Angono just to visit this Unicorn themed café and I didn’t expect that I would be disappointed with the experience. I rarely give bad reviews and this is probably the first time I will, but I want to be honest with my experience. To be fair, I will also be pointing out their good points.

Prima Sassy Belle: Prima Perfume Penelope Review


I hate perfumes. It triggers my allergy at times because of the strong scent. I also find it irritating that I need to spray perfume from time to time because the smell wears off easily. That’s why Prima Perfume is definitely a good news for me.

I received a bottle of Prima Perfume in the scent of Penelope a week ago and I've been using it since. Penelope is Prima Sassy Belle’s own version of PF7-RM.

Life Lately Vol. 2 Family and Friends



AUGUST has been a very busy month for me due to sudden changes with schedule at work. Luckily, I still found time to spend time with my family and friends.

AUGUST 21, 2018 

It’s been months since I last met up with Kate. She was a friend and a former co-teacher at the school I used to work at. She is only free on the weekends (since she’s a teacher) while I never have weekends free.

Careline Multi-Sticks: Strobe Stick Review


I have always wanted to be a glow girl—a fab lass who blinds people with her shining shimmering highlights. I have never been good with highlighting though, I find it too hard to do and it’s too extreme for my everyday drab. However, Careline, who had always provided us with that fab yet easy and affordable ‘pretty school girl look’ had up their game with the current trend and provided us with their multi-sticks, in which the strobe stick I tried today is included.

Affordable Eyebrow Pencil: Nature Republic By Flower Auto Eyebrow Review

“Kilay is life.”
Shaping and shading our eyebrows is probably the most essential step in getting ready for the day—at least  for us “kilay enthusiasts” (eyebrow enthusiasts). A lot of us are unable to go outside unless we have perfected and made sure our eyebrows are ‘on fleek’. We  would always want to use the best for our eyebrows, but with all the bills and other responsibilities our wallet carry, we want affordable yet best eyebrow pencils we can get. Nature Republic seemed to have heard our cries for eyebrow help and blessed us with their affordable yet high quality auto eyebrow pencil.

Antipolo Cosplayers at #MetroGivesBack: A Charity Program


I have been cosplaying for more than 6 years now and have met a lot of friends along the way (which is another story to tell) and of course include my Antipolo Cosplayers family. Antipolo Cosplayers Association Inc. is a non-profit organization with the purpose of reaching out to the growing cosplay community and aims to promote Cosplaying as not only a form of art but as means of helping other people. This is the reason why we took part on Super Metro Antipolo’s  #MetroGivesBack: Charity Program.

Pitsjack Banchetto: Unlimited Bs. Barbeque. Buffet. Beer.


Want to eat (eat a loooot) of food but on a tight budget? Well lucky you, I just happen to discover this restaurant in Marikina you are sure to enjoy. With P250.00 you can eat all you want!



UNLIMITED BARBEQUE
They set up a grill for each table where you can grill your food of choice. It kinda gives me the Samgyupsal feels but much more PInoy since their bbq choices are our normal ‘tusok-tusok’ food.

Jukaykay Antipolo: Staying trendy but price-friendly!


We are always in search of clothes that would look good on us but with reasonable prices. Jukaykay have always provided us with fashionable and trendy clothes but with prices we are sure to afford. Just last July 14, 2018 Jukaykay opened its doors to Antipoleños as they open their first ever branch in Antipolo.

The Book Museum cum Ethnology Center: The First in Asia

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

"A book is a gift you can open again and again."
-Garrison Keillor

Books will always be my first love. Since I was in elementary reading has always been one of my favorite hobbies. When I learned of The Book Museum, I just knew that my bookworm heart had to get there. So I did.


The Book Museum cum Ethnology Center is the first of its kind in Asia. It features not only a great variety of amazing books but also a collection of well-preserved and precious artifacts from Northern and Southern Part of the Philippines.

Life Lately Vol. 1 Memories and Realizations

sparklewanderandeat.com

Why are memories so important to people?



 I’ve been doing a lot of cleaning lately and discovered that my photo albums were being eaten away by insects (?) so I decided to look for a new photo album to transfer my pictures on. Luckily, I found this cute thrift/novelty shop in Antipolo where I bought this photo album for P200.00. The original price was P250.00 but I had a 20% discount so I got it cheaper. It was perfect for my pictures.

REVIEW: Esme Organics Cold Wax


I'm sure I’m not the only one who dreads plucking/shaving/waxing unwanted body hair. I mean, who wouldn’t? It hurts and it’s such a drag. We need to do it as a often as needed for hygienic reasons (which I am totally for, but it’s just such a painful process ugh) and we want it as easy but precise as possible. So we always think of ways to get the job done, and I discovered waxing. Cold wax is a soft paste formulated to knife consistency. Unlike hot wax, there is no need to heat cold wax and is just used as it is.

SIP STEEL STRAWS: #NoExcuseForSingleUse



Have you ever thought about where the plastic straw that you used and thrown somewhere might have ended up?
In our society where we are always in a hurry finish the day, we always want things instant and convenient. Rushing to get takeout food to save time? Put it in a plastic bag. Doing groceries? Carry them on a plastic bag. PLASTIC, the instant and convenient best friend for the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

We become oblivious of what “instant” and “convenient” may cause to our environment. They may end up somewhere and maybe STUCK ON A POOR ENDANGERED SPECIE OF A TURTLE’S NOSE. How would you feel if this plastic straw was yours?

Café Mermania: Where Mermaids Eat and Chill


“Always be yourself, unless you can be a MERMAID, then always be a Mermaid.”

That's exactly what Café Mermania has to offer, be a mermaid for a day (actually, you can come and visit them any day and be a mermaid anytime you want!). When I was a little girl I had dreamed of swimming along with Princess Ariel, flapping that magnificent mermaid tail (I low key still want it) and this Café had fulfilled my heart’s desire!

Kreatib Hub + Cafe: Your New Kreatib Tambayan!


Antipolo has so much to offer for food lovers out there but there always seems to be new places to discover, very interesting ones at that. Me and my blogger friend Tony are currently hooked to ‘kawaii journaling’ and are big sticker collectors. She happened to discover Kreatib HUB + Café and highly recommended it so I decided to pay it a visit.

Mercury Drug Planner 2018 | How to get one?



2018 has just begun and this is the time for us to plan our goals and aspirations. (LOL who am I kidding?) Anyway, I think I am ready to plan the year ahead because I finally have my own My Write Life 2018 planner from Mercury Drug Store!

It’s really hard to get one eversince it went viral and hacks about how to get one spread around the internet eventually leaving no stocks of this planner on Mercury Drug Stores. Fortunately, my Kuya’s girlfriend help me to get one! (Thank you!)

Since I saw this planner, I have always wanted to have one. Mercury Drug Store has their planners every year. If I remember correctly they have the generic red planner they have every year, but this year they decided to step up their game. And man, did they do the right decision.
