Another year of my life has past...

June 28, 1983 I was born in a small province of Isabela, Philippines called Cauayan. As I write this blog, smoking a cigarette, I started to think back on how my life, like all of our lives, had its ups & downs. My life has never been perfect & it's from the choices we make as people.

I've been to hell & back, as I'm sure, like most of us HUMANS have. In my opinion, if you haven't, then you're not living life. The past few years have been crap for me, but I'm slowly getting back on my feet to make life better for everyone in my life & myself.

I thank GOD all the time for letting me live another day. I thank my family for all the love, support & good times, even though I don't deserve it. To my close friends (Thuy, Shana, Nanta, Lani, Amanda, Lovely... Just to name a few) for ALWAYS being here when I need someone to vent to or just laugh with. You guys keep me sane. And to you who read my blog, follow my twitter, subscribe to my youtube... Thank you for supporting my love & hobby of beauty. You all inspire me to pursue my childhood dream of being a MUA for others, to help women AND men realize that you too can enhance & embrace your beauty from within.

With that said, here's to another year!

Crest 3D White Vivid Toothpaste Test/Review

So, I always see the commercials for this dental hygiene line. I had to try it out! The official website for this toothpaste says that it's supposed to "Whiten teeth by removing up to 80% of surface stains in just 14 days with Crest 3D White Vivid Toothpaste. Its patented enamel safe whitening ingredient polishes away stains to gently whiten teeth."

I'm putting it to the test starting today by using this toothpaste for the next 14 days. It's a good way to start it since it is Sunday.

My first thoughts of Crest 3D White Vivid Toothpaste: It's a paste with little gels particles. I don't know about you, but I like toothpaste that foam up. It makes my teeth feel cleaner. The little gels act like an exfoliant for your teeth. So my teeth feel even more clean than it would without them. What about the "taste"?! It's super refreshing!!!! That's all I can say about it.

Hrmmm....after the initial 14 days, we'll see how much it whitens my teeth! I took a picture of my teeth earlier when I first woke up. So I'll post a "Before & After" photo the day after Day 14. Until then....

Unconditional love

This photo was taken on my 1st birthday, which was about 26 yrs ago (do the math). The lady holding me is the most beautiful, inspirational, loving, hilarious person I've ever known in my life... My mother.

My mom is a single mother & raised 3 girls to adult hood with the help of my grandmother & aunts. Mine & my sisters relationship with our mom wasn't your Gilmore Girls kind... Not even close to it, until recently.

I was never really the type of girl growing up to run to her mom when I had problems or anything. Instead I would turn to drugs, alcohol & the "bad girl club" with my friends (which started in middle school). I thought this was a way to get attention from my mom. It was, but not in the good way. I could never run to her when I got my first bf, first kiss, or when I had questions about sex.

I never really told my mom about my past relationships with the guys or girls, except recently. I told my mom about Rob. Why!? I have no clue! Haha!

Yesterday (06/10) mom turned 61. Yup! That's right! She's passed her 60's. To be honest, she still looks like she can be in her late 40s-early 50s.

Mom, thank you for everything you sacrificed for us. For everything you couldn't give and everything you could give to us. I really wish I could turn back time to fix our relationship, but I like our relationship now. <3

Testing, testing... 1, 2, 3...

I'm just testing this email to blogger feature. If it works, I think I'll be posting a lot more blogs, FOTD and what not! I seem to abuse my blogs a lot. I just don't have interest in typing much anymore. I need to get into the swing of things. Don't worry... Eventually I will... Til thennnnnn...
