Hello my lovely readers. I have recently joined a 100 day blogging challenge on a facebook group I'm a member of. It was difficult to cope up at the moment since I have to work and prepare for the upcoming exam but I wanted to share two videos I found online.am but I wanted to share two videos I found online.
Part of the challenge is to do a vlog which, as of the moment, I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to do but I wanna try anyway. I make youtube videos for nail art but the set-up I have is so simple and I only use a lamp for lighting so when I tried filming a vlog, it didn't turn out good. Mostly because it was dark. I moved my table by the window for natural lighting but I typically work 12 hours a day so the sun will be gone by the time I get home to film.
I searched for filming set-ups but most of what came out where the glamorous and expensive ones by already popular youtubers. These two I came accross by chance and thought it deserve more views than it get so I'm writing this post to share them.
The last time we visited Quiapo Church, we went to Wellmanson and that's were I found this paddle makeup brush set. I already took it out of the box since it's generic and most of the times Quiapo and Divisoria brushes have the similar quality anyway. The set includes five brushes, an egg shape sponge and a brush cleaner.
What: Paddle Makeup Brush Set
Where to buy: Wellmanson, Quiapo, Manila
I've been so curious about these paddle brushes since it first came out and it is easy to find at the mall but I cannot afford to pay a thousand or more for a single brush. Not even three hundred per piece for something that may be similar in quality with those from Quiapo or Divisoria.
The trip took about 4 hours from Olongapo through SCTEx and TPLEx. We paid toll fees from Olongapo as follows (one way):
(SCTEx) Tipo Entrance: P22
From (SCTEx) Tipo to TPLEx Entrance: P294
To TPLEx Exit: P235

I mentioned in my previous post how I encountered an article from an old magazine while cleaning my room. Well I'm an accountant. It's normal for me to compute automatically when I see numbers. That's what triggered me to get a reality check on my financial status. I hope this post would do the same to you.
On the same night, I sat in my room and stared at my bank book and mull over my finances and spending habits. Here's how you can too.
1. List all source of income and how much you earn from it.
Right now, I have a single source and that's my full time job which basically earns me the same every payday. Now if you're working several part time jobs that have varying income, get the average and don't over estimate.
I suggest getting the middle of your lowest income and most consintent highest income from that part time job.
as my copy of grades and certification from school that I'm finishing my masters degree. I also brought my original certificates because they're checking the authenticity of the CPD units I've actually earned.
You must be thinking why do you need to know how to make nail art stickers when you can simply get it from the mall or, for more design choices, buy it online. Bornprettystore has quite a collection for only a few cents. Then again, there may be times that you want a particular design but can't find it anywhere or the alternative may take a month to arrive. So why bother waiting and spending when you can just create exactly what you want with what you already have.
All you need for this project is a base to create your design and nail polishes of your choice. For more flexibility, you can also use acrylic to paint your nail art stickers with.
For the base, I'm using the back of Oh My Girl's nail stamp. If you don't have one, you may use a sandwich bag, too. Then you can layer on your nail polish from there.
Here's how to do it.
I've been consistently cutting my nail off with a knife while preparing meals, literally. The last time it took me three weeks to grow it back to normal size only to cut it again accidentally. So I decided to purchase this practice set from bornprettystore.com. Now I don't have to stop doing nail art even without my real nails.
I bought these 600 pcs of false nail tips for $4.57 and two display fingers, to attach the nail to, for $1.99.
To be honest, only a few numbers fit my nails but you can trim the sides easily with a nipper for the bigger ones. I like it just fine for practice but it's a little thick not to be noticed if you plan on wearing it.
Who doesn't want be free from living paycheck to paycheck? Here are a few steps I've taken to get a good start on my way to financial freedom
1. Get a reality check and figure out where you're at.
Where else will you start? It's important to know exactly where your finances stand and how much more losses can you tolerate before you sink in debt and never be able to get up. Getting a better picture of your financial status will guide you in establishing your goals and achieve financial freedom.
On my previous post, Going Through Lifestyle Inflation, I mentioned that I have a negative net worth but looking into it closely, I still have a few bucks in my name. It can't wipe off my long term debt, of course, but I can use it to pay for the current ones without touching the money I'm saving for my operation.
Basically, I'm broke but people wont notice; not even the merchants I owe to. That's a good start.
If you're up for some Korean food and good coversation with your friends I would suggest you to visit Dongae. It's located near the old Park n Shop.
What: Dongae Korean Restaurant
Where: SBMA near old Park n Shop
Price range: P250+ per head
After entering the first gate to SBMA, just walk straight ahead. You would want to turn left before the first Ministop (not the one on the other side of the street) and pass through the old Park n Shop to DBP's block. Turn to your left from there and you'll find it.
