Instagram update!

What’s New on Instagram?

I don’t know about you guys, but I do have two separate Facebook and Instagram Accounts. The reason being is that, only few of my friends and family are aware of me blogging that’s why I prefer to separate my Personal Account from my Blogging Account.

Just yesterday, I noticed that Instagram has a New and Cool feature which makes it easier for people with multiple accounts to switch from one account to the other. Continue reading “Instagram update!”

Happy Anniversary?!

OK! please be ready to spare some of your time for this post as it’s going to be a looongg one! But I’ll try to make it shorter..if I can. 🙂

 I joined WordPress back in 2008. Yup in 2008! However, I had no idea how to navigate WordPress at that time as they had such a complicated menus or even limited themes to choose from. Bottomline, it wasn’t that user friendly.

As far as I can remember I wrote something about my Life Journey in which I discovered seven years later that it wasn’t even published. HAHA

So back in January 27 of 2015, I’ve decided to do something else so I thought why not start a blog? I then remembered I had WordPress! I immediately grabbed my phone (Thank you to smart phones, it made everything so easy and accessible) and logged-in to WordPress.com and wow! my account is still active. No views or visitors though..(LOL)  My account name back then was Capricorn (don’t ask me why-LOL) so I immediately changed my name to FilipinoInsideOut and again (don’t ask me why) OK, OK maybe because I’m a Filipino Inside and Out!? Or should I say, I was born and raised in the Philippines?? LOL 😛

Anyway, to make this long story short I then wrote my very first post without even knowing that I will enjoy and continue writing and sharing different ideas up to present. Here’s my very first and official blog post Oh! How I Love Monday..😍 The moment I hit the “publish” button, it actually felt good. So, I then wrote my second, 3rd and so on. If you’re interested to know more on How Did I End Up Blogging click HERE

And that is the reason why I considered January 27, 2015 as my Blog Anniversary because it all started that day! ❤

Please allow me to quickly share my blog insights.

  • Zero views from 2008-2014.
  • I’ve shared 167 fun and not-so-fun posts from 2015 -2016.
  • A Huge Shout-Out to my top 5 viewers and of course to everyone from all over the world!
  • And surprisingly Thoughtful Wednesday! still has the Best Views Ever!

Furthermore,

After a couple of months of blogging, I’ve been contemplating of changing my name to something that suites best on what my posts are all about. However, I didn’t do it because “again” I never thought that I’ll continue blogging. Some of you have witnessed my journey and was with me from when I first started until this day and with that Thank you!

Now with all the grace and support that I received from everyone, and I know now what I’m passionate about, I am for sure considering of changing my account name. Something that’s been in my mind since forever but will still keep a part of FilipinoInsideOut. (stay tune for that)

Twelve months of blogging means twelve months of something!

I now have a clear vision of what I want and what I hope to achieve.

And after this long and boring story, I thought I’d share twelve (12) posts in twelve consecutive days (wish me luck!)… Nope! it’s definitely not 12 Days of Christmas! HAHA and hopefully I will be able to make this happen.

So what do you guys think? Am I just dreaming or you’ll agree with my Blog Anniversary date?

Thoughts???

Insta recap!

thumb_Untitled_1024

I hope everyone is having a great weekend and to those who got hit by the snow storm, I hope you all are safe and warm.

I thought I’d do a quick recap on what I shared on my Instagram and Twitter accounts. If you get the chance and wants to see what I’m up to when I’m not blogging, go ahead and follow me and give me a “haller” and I will follow back!

Now let’s get started.

Monday

IMG_6782
This was my Monday morning companion. I’ve been trying to use some of my old makeup so they won’t go to waste. This is Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm Balm in the shade DEMURE (105). I love the “minty” feel on this balm and is definitely hydrating. You can use this all by itself or use it on top of you favorite lipstick as a lip shiner.

Tuesday

IMG_6790
While there’s a beautiful thin sheet of snow on the ground, I thought I’d take a quick snap on the mother of all my purses. This Celine Micro purse was given to me by my hubby on our wedding anniversary few years back and I rarely use this so it won’t get damaged. This can carry a lot of things but I don’t recommend using this when you’re wandering around for a long period of time as it tends to get really heavy on the arm. 

 Wednesday

IMG_6795
On Wednesday’s we got to have some Pink! Another re-discovery of yours truly and I used to have quite a few of these Rimmel London Show Off Lip Lacquer but I gave some to my sister back home since they don’t have Rimmel London products there yet. (in case you’re wondering where is home? it’s in the Phlippines). This is in the shade NOVA (102).

Thursday

IMG_6849
One of my very few high end products if I must say. This is the Dior Addict High Shine in 260. Aside from the very elegant packaging, the product is also SUPER Hydrating. I never regret having this lip product in my collection.

Friday

IMG_6858
Eye Shadow Friday! I almost forgot I have this MAC eyeshadow in RICEPAPER Frost. This shadow is very smooth, super pigmented and can be used just by itself or as a base and mix with other shade of you choice. (Of course it’s from MAC, then it better be great right?)

And that’s it.

Bonus: Of course this post won’t be complete without a quick OOTD.. isn’t it? 🤗

See you again next week for another 5 day recap!

Beauty Haul!

Untitled_Fotor

There are two reasons why I shop, one is because I’m stressed and two because I want them and would like to take them home with me. I know I said it in my last post  “Goals..Goals..Goals..” that I will try to Spend Less and Save More. So this time, I did spend less.

It’s been a while since I’ve shared my last haul post “Mini-lipstick-Haul!” so I guess it’s time for me to share some today.

MILANI Color Statement Nail Lacquer

These nail polishes cost $3.95 at Walmart but I only paid 97 cents for each as they were on sale.

thumb_IMG_6804_1024_Fotor I love the range of colors that they have, the formulation looks really good too and the packaging is just elegant. That made me so excited to buy them (aside from the price of course), now I cannot wait to try them very soon.

Now, let’s talk about face products.
thumb_IMG_6833_1024
Another repurchased item here is the MAYBELLINE Fit Me Concealer in the shade SAND. One of the best concealer I’ve ever tried. Non-drying, not “cakey” either, very smooth and very easy to blend too. Definitely a Must-Have.

thumb_IMG_6837_1024

Finally! I’m able to lay my hands on this lipstick from Rimmel The Only One Lipstick, 120 You’re all mineI’ve been seeing photos and advertisements on this lipsticks all over the net and now I got one myself. The quality of this lipstick is awesome. It smells like the Rimmel Lasting Finish By Kate Lipstick collection but as always, not too overwhelming.  The shade option is quite limited but I’m hoping that they will come up with more new shades for a better color options.

Milani Power Lip Lasting & Moisturizing Lip Stain, Strawberry Sugar 06

I’ve never heard much buzz about this Milani Power Lip Gloss Stain. I’ve purchased one before just out of curiosity but I ended up loving it. Now I thought why not add one more gloss stain in my lipstick collection and see if I will adore this shade as well. This is truly a stain because it stays on for a while, another good thing about this product is that, it doesn’t dry your lips out.

If you’ve tried this item, please let me know what you guys think?

thumb_IMG_6834_1024
Rimmel London in You’re All Mine and Milani Power Lip Gloss Stain in Strawberry Sugar

I couldn’t help myself but grab another Powder Brush from Elf Cosmetics. They are just one of the best and most affordable brushes out there.

thumb_IMG_6835_1024

Last but not the least, is my new favorite Covergirl The Super Sizer by LashBlast(r) Mascara, 800 Very Black. I don’t know what took me so long to purchase this mascara though I’ve seen and heard so many beauty bloggers and beauty gurus talked about this.

thumb_IMG_6836_1024_FotorThe wand looks really tiny and seemed like it can’t even give you volume or length, but hey! don’t get fooled by it because this tiny wand is AWESOME! I love how it makes my lashes look long, black and with more volume. This mascara stays on and keeps the curl really well for a long time. It doesn’t flake and didn’t irritate my eyes too. Great for top and bottom lashes. I love this!

And that’s it for now, let me know if you want to see a “Fashion Haul” post too!

Until next time…

I showed you my Polish of the Week blog post ft. Julie G nail color in PIN UP GIRL from my December IPSY Glambag with a hint of gold using Pure ICE nail polish in STUDETTE. The nail polish actually lasted for at least four days before it started chipping on me (not bad-not bad).
