I wanted to escape the summer heat in Manila for a change but too lazy to drive out of the city. So I decided to check-in at a hotel in Manila where I can just bum around and live like a queen (at least even for 2 day) LOL

EDSA Shangri-la Hotel
My goal was to spend my weekend at hotel in Manila. At this same time, I wanted to give myself a gift for my birthday (another LOL).

EDSA Shangri-la Manila Hotel was the venue for my weekend staycation last weekend. My only goal was to lie around and have a restful 2 days. Oh and to play COC too. As in Clash of Clans (once more LOL).

Here are some photos of my Manila staycation...

Last Oct 2011 (blog here), I first blog about a place called Playa Laiya Beach Resort. Eversince then Playa has been a constant venue of most of my OOTD posts here on Fierce Blog. Even some of my summer essentials where taken at the said resort. Also, since a lot of my readers have been asking where the place is etc., I decided to do a follow-up blog to give you more information about Playa Laiya Beach Resort.

Playa Laiya Beach Resort

Where is Playa Laiya?

It is in Lobo-Malabrigo-Laiya Road, San Juan, Batangas. Coming from Manila and via private car, trip is around 2 and half hours. Check out Playa Laiya in Google Maps here.

What is also exciting to share is, you can have your own beach residential property for as low as PHP15,000.00. That sure is good news and a wise property purchase, right?

Here are some photos of Playa Laiya I took using Iphone camera.

Bahama Mama (The Balm) Bronzer Review

0 comments
Share
Last March 2015, I blogged about a collection of make-up Fierce Blogs was reviewing. One month thereof, I am ready to blog about my experience about one of th product I simply fell in love with. Today, we review Bahama Mama Bronzer, Shadow & Contour Powder (No Shimmer).


Bahama Mama Bronzer
 Bahama Mama The Balm Review...

What I love about Bahama Mama Bronzer:
  • The packaging. It's just cuteness overload!
  • Application is easy. In fact, you only need a small amount of product to use and it goes a long way
  • Easy to achieve that shadow and depth you want on your face: cheek bone, jawline and temple area
  • It also pass the test challenge. Product does not turn orangy after 4 to 5 hours after application. Normally, this is the problem of other bronzers - They turn orangy and your face suddenly looks funny (LOL)
  • Easy to bring along with you and put inside your daily kikay kit
  • No need to retouch for the whole day :)
  • Totally odorless
  • It's magnetic lock is wonderful. Product is always secure and locked
Not to happy about:
  • It's a bit pricey for Php845.00
  • I hope it comes in variety of tones so you can choose you skin color
Bahama Mama Bronzer


Will I but it again? Hell, yes! I super love the product and it instantly became a favorite make-up to wear during important events.

Great week to all!

Mineral Fusion Concealer Duo Review

0 comments
Share
I've had this product for a while now but it was only 3 weeks ago when I had the chance to try and wear it. Our make-up product feature today is from Mineral Fusion.

Mineral Fusion Concealer Duo

Here's my experience in using Mineral Fusion Concealer Duo:
  • Product is easy to apply
  • A little amount of product does a long way in terms of concealing problem area
  • Concealing property is effective enough to hide skin imperfection without looking "fake" or dotted
  • Stating power of the product is around 3 - 5 hours without looking oily
  • Easy to retouch after 4 hour using your usual powder
Downside of using Mineral Fusion Concealer Duo

Mineral Fusion Concealer Duo

  • 3.1 g is priced at Php895.00. A bit pricey for a small amount of make-up
  • Tendency to appear "cakey" if you over-do application. Use small amount only until desired concealing is achieved
Is it worth it to buy Mineral Fusion Concealer Duo for Php895.00? Fierce Blogs is giving this make-up a thumbs up. It instantly became my favorite make-up accessories during important events :)

Happy Easter!

0 comments

No matter how much you take care of your most treasured and expensive make-up, unfortunately, they all have a shelf life that you need to follow. Otherwise, the price of not following the shelf life of you make-up can be pricey and at times also painful.

So, here's a simple guide on the shelf life of your make-up:

Make-up Shelf Life

Here's another tip I have for you. To remember when you open the make-up, put a label. It's actually very simple, follow the steps below:

Make-up Tips

Simply cut a tape and write the date of when you opened  the make-up :)

Enjoy!

BYS Loose Powder Matte Finish Review

0 comments
Share
I'm very particular on what make-up I use. We should be. In fact, before I buy or try out a product that I will use, I make it a point to check the net and check what's written and red reviews already out there. When it comes to product integrity, nothing beats the old-fashioned experience credibility. Users and buyers are the real voice of your product.

BYS Loose Powder Matte Finish

The next product feature here on Fierce Blogs is no exemption.  Here my review on BYS Loose Powder Matte Finish.

What I love about BYS Loose Powder Matte Finish (Natural Beige):
  • Very light and easy on face after application
  • It is unscented - a must for me when it comes to cosmetics. I don't like products that have heavy scents
  • Comes handy with a sponge/foam for application
  • Durable enough to stay on your face for 4 hours (considering that we are on summer season when review was done)
  • Simply love its matte finish on your face (true to its product promise!)
  • It's ideal for my combination skin (dry on some and oily on some areas)
  • A little goes a long way. Don't over apply the loose powder.
BYS Loose Powder

My request on BYS Loose Powder Matte Finish:
  • I hope product comes with a plastic seal (to close holes) so when you put product inside your bag it does not overly pour during application
  • I prefer brush application instead of sponge/clothe. I hope they can change it to brush applicator
You can visit the official BYS website here - www.bys.com.ph/

Have a fierce night sweeties!

How to Renew Driver's License (Fast and Easy)

0 comments
Share
Next week is my birthday and along that special day is the expiration of my driver's license. Kinda bitter sweet experience so to speak. And since I do not like delaying or procrastinating matters, I decided renew it this week.

Driver's License

Overall, I spent 27 minutes and the total of Php617.63 in renewing my driver's license. Exciting, right?

Here's how to renew your driver's license the easy and fastest way.

How to Renew Driver's License (fast and easy)

I wad told that going to LTO Megamall branch is an easy fix. But when I went there, the lobby guard told me that they already transferred to Robinson's Galleria early this year. I was hesitant at first but later decided to go anyway. After arriving at Galleria, Information politely directed me to go to basement level where LTO holds office. To my surprise I was the 5th person on queue. Horay!

Steps on how to renew your driver's license is posted at the door area.

It's actually the same steps I did when I renewed my license. Overall, I spent 27 minutes inside LTO Galleria satellite Branch. I simply love it!

How much is the driver's license renewal? I spent Php617.63. Breakdown is...
  • Php200.00 for your medical examination
  • Php417.63 for the Driver's License Renewal Fee
Now, if you need to renew, just head to LTO Galleria Basement Level. It's open mall hours (10AM - 5PM).

Thanks to LTO galleria! Services like these are reasons why I believe there's hope in government services in the Philippines.

BYS Contour Trio Review - Cheek, Highlight and Contour

0 comments
Share
It's all about convergence nowadays. From phone to camera; name it! More and more products are converging into one multi-purpose product only to benefit the consumers. And this convergence is also happening in make-up world.

BYS Contour Trio (Cheek, Highlight and Contour)

The offering of BYS Countour Trio will excite you: cheeker, highlighter and contour. Here's what I think about this small yet massive beauty product.

What I like about BYS Contour Trio:
  • Product is easy to use using the correct angle brush
  • 5 hours after application, product doesn't turn orangy like most products I've tried
  • Small application does a long mile. Go easy when you dap those make-up brushes
  • Highlight feature is my favorite! Gives you that umpf and kick to feature eyes and nose areas. MUST TRY
  • Contour feature works best on cheeks and forehead. It'll give you that depth and shadow you need

BYS Contour Trio (Cheek, Highlight and Contour)
Not a fan of:
  • I hope the proportions of the product is right. I mean, little for the highlight and more on cheek and contour. After all, you only need a little amount of highlights and an awful amount of cheek and contour applications. It's a wish :)
Great Sunday to all!

BYS Cosmetics, Australia's leading and one of the fastest growing cosmetics globally; recently held a shoot for  its brand jingle. And I am happy to say that Fierce Blogs was there to cover the BTS and share to all of you tonight.

Below is a photo teaser of the said shoot.

Arnee Hidalgo for BYS Cosmetics


BTS of BYS Jingle Shoot
Indeed, Arnee Hidalgo is the voice behind the jingle of BYS Cosmetics, which will be officially launched this coming summer. Last week of April is the tentative launch date, according to my sources. Working behind the camera is Jeffrey Hidalgo, former member of the famous group Smokey Mountain. Too bad I wasn't able to take a photo of Jeffrey because he was so caught up in his directorial duties that day. May be next time. Or may be I'll be able to do a private conversations with him and will feature him on my blog soon.

Stay tuned on my blog because I will be posting more product reviews of BYS Cosmetics. Back in Feb 2015, I featured a BYS makeup brush that I fell in love with. Read my previous blog here. Expect more BYS products to be reviewed here one product at a time.
