My 21st Birthday Celebration

Last October 18, I celebrated my 21st birthday with my mom at Vanilla Cupcake Bakery

Before I show you guys what we ate, I'm first going to share the outfit I wore during my birthday.

For makeup, I went with a light & fresh look.

Vanilla Cupcake Bakery is known for their different array of cupcakes, but what most people don't know is that they also serve delicious food. My mom ordered the VCB Special Tapa while I got Mr. & Mrs. Wings which comes with chicken wings, fries, and garlic rice. We also shared dalandan juice and for dessert we had Smores flavored icecream.

Overall, my mother and I had a wonderful time. The food was flavorful and the ambiance made the perfect setting for our simple lunch date.

After eating out, I went to the gym and waited for my best friend to finish working out, then we headed home to have another celebration, this time with my family.

Midnight Dream Cake

My mom bought spaghetti from Amber's and barbecue, while my dad got me a cake from Cara Mia.

I felt really blessed to be able to share my special day with my loved ones and I am so grateful to have these people in my life.

Etude House Silk Scarf Damage Protein Curling Essence Review

Hey guys! I know it's been such a long time since I've posted anything new and I am so sorry for that. The past year has been so hectic, everything passed by in a blur. Moving on, I felt inspired to blog again after trying out this product and it is non other than the Etude House Silk Scarf Damage Protein Curling Essence!

Etude House Silk Scarf Damage Protein Curling Essence
150 ml
(P 498)

What it claims:


The product keeps your precious curls fresh and bouncy by fixing curls that loosen over time after a perm and by protecting damaged hair caused by frequent styling!


After shampoo, towel-dry hair and apply an appropriate amount on hair as if scrunching with the hands to style.


I am totally in love with this hair product! It makes my permed hair look more alive and curlier at the same time without making my locks look or feel crunchy to the touch! It also smells good and many people compare the scent to powder but for me it has a mild floral scent which I really like. I am super satisfied with this curling essence and that's saying a lot since I only got it last Saturday! I've only been using it for 4 consecutive days but I already see instant results. My hair looks freshly permed! Instead of looking loose (since I got a perm September of last year), my curls look tight and bouncy! I admit it is a little pricey but trust me, you definitely get your money's worth. Besides, a little goes a long way so this will last you for months! I highly recommend this to girls who have naturally wavy/curly or permed hair like mine.
