Affordable, Glam Makeup Look with Ever Bilena Advance

I am a fan of local cosmetics, like Ever Bilena Advance. Why? As a mom, the first thing to consider is the budget. So, anything AFFORDABLE catches my attention right away.

Okay, let me enumerate why I LOVE EB Advance cosmetics:

  • Very affordable
  • Well-known for many years; used from generation to generation
  • Follows the trends in cosmetics
  • Do not irritate my skin

Yesterday afternoon, I was so bored so I thought of putting on some makeup. So here’s the glamorous look that I did using only a few cosmetics:

When Sleep isn’t about Sleeping Anymore

I usually fall asleep between 10 pm to 1 am, depending how tired I am on that day. Then I wake up around 6 or 7 in the morning. But tonight is another episode of my “almost” sleepless night. I fell asleep at 9 pm and woke up at 1:30 am.

It’s now 3 am.

When depression hits you, it really hits hard. It is not as easy to handle as you thought it is. It’s not a simple feeling of sadness. Depression is depression. They have given it a lot of definitions but for me, it’s really an indescribable feeling.

Ilang Tulog Pa Ba?! PASKO NA!

Ang bilis ng panahon, ilang araw na lang, PASKO na! Sa office nga may Christmas playlist na ako habang nagtatrabaho. Random Christmas songs yung nasa playlist ko, may English at syempre Tagalog songs. Ang lakas maka-good vibes! Nasa lima o anim ang paborito ko dun, pero syempre may #1 sa mga paborito ko, “Ilang Tulog na Lang?” by The Company. Familiar ka ba sa kantang yon? Sobrang nagustuhan ko sya kasi maka-Pilipino yung dating nung kanta na pinaparamdam nya yung pagkasabik sa darating na Kapaskuhan. Kung hindi mo alam yung kanta, eto ang lyrics nya (i-download mo na rin para mas magandang sabayan haha!):

Kanta nang kanta, ensayo nang ensayo, awiting pamasko’y di pa rin kabisado.
Sige lang nang sige kahit wala sa tiyempo. Malapit na kaming magkaroling sa inyo.

Bilang nang bilang ng inipong pera. Kabado man sa gastos ngunit tayo’y maligaya.
Bili pa nang bili ng kung ano-ano.
Alin nga bang regalo’ng ibibigay sa’yo?

Ilang tulog pa ba? Malapit na malapit na! Ilang tulog pa ba ang paskong masaya? Ilang tulog pa ba? Darating na.
Ilang tulog pa ba? Malapit na malapit na! Ilang tulog pa ba ang paskong masaya? Ilang tulog pa ba? Darating na.

Usok ng putobumbong–nalalanghap ko na.

Ilang tulog pa ba? Heto na heto na!
Ilang tulog pa ba ang paskong masaya?
Di na hihiling ng kung ano-ano:
mahalin mo lang ako, ayos na ang pasko

Hamon at keso’y malapit nang ihain;
kay tagal nang binili, hulugan pa man din. (Aray!)
Di bale nang medyo gipit basta’t tayo’y maligaya.
Ang masayang pasko’y hinihintay ko na.

Kalembang nang kalembang ang kampana—kay lakas!
Batian nang batian ng “meri krismas!” Lahat ng masalubong ay may ngiti sa labi. Kahit nagtatampuhan ay nagkakabati.

Ilang tulog pa ba? Malapit na malapit na! Ilang tulog pa ba ang paskong masaya? Ilang tulog pa ba? Darating na.
Usok ng putobumbong–nalalanghap ko na.

Ilang tulog pa ba? Heto na heto na!
Ilang tulog pa ba ang paskong masaya?
Di na hihiling ng kung ano-ano:
mahalin mo lang ako, ayos na ang pasko

Huwag mong bibilangin ang tulog sa tanghali,
Sasapit ang paskong pagkadali-dali. Magigising tayo sa tuwa’t ligaya
Ilang tulog pa ba? Pasko na! Pasko na!

Ilang tulog pa ba? Malapit na malapit na! Ilang tulog pa ba ang paskong masaya? Ilang tulog pa ba? Darating na.
Usok ng putobumbong–nalalanghap ko na.

Ilang tulog pa ba? Heto na heto na!
Ilang tulog pa ba ang paskong masaya?
Di na hihiling ng kung ano-ano: mahalin mo lang ako, ayos na ang pasko

Di na hihiling ng kung ano-ano: mahalin mo lang ako, ayos na ang pasko Ilang tulog pa ba? Ilang tulog pa ba?
Pasko na!

Ganda di ba?! 😂🎄
