Dear Berry, will you make me merry?

I never thought I’d get conscious on how I look when I reached 40. I was never beauty conscious. I was one of those women who could go out and show-off their natural look, without even getting bothered if they put the right lipstick on for the day, or done their brows evenly. But the more I look in the mirror closer, the more I notice the unwanted blemishes and lines that make me feel older than my actual age.

The problem is I don’t know what products I should buy that match my skin tone, and well, age definitely.  I sometimes doubt the ladies-in-charge of each make-up section in the malls because I know they are more particular of the after sales that they should bring in at the end of the day. Apart from the “pasalubongs” that I get from my husband and brother, I have also tried several drugstore-bought make-ups, but was never satisfied. Besides the quality, I also consider the “price tags” that are attached to it. Being the naturally impulsive buyer that I am, I don’t want to end up doing the same with the things that should actually go in my least priority list.

Chancing upon Dear Berry’s products, I find these pretty affordable and safe. Among the many, here are the items that I have written in my wishlist:

Cover Girl BB Primer #2 Natural Beige | Brand: Cosmax Inc | Product Code: DB101

On my idle time, I watch make-up tutorials on YouTube with my daughters. In every tutorial made, a Primer is always present. I don’t think I have ever used such thing. When I put on my make-up, I would go directly to applying foundation after the moisturizer.  If ever I’d go for a Primer, I’d definitely want something that could do magic, and cover my blemishes which this Cover Girl BB Primer #2 does > Cover blemishes with 3 satisfying effects: whitening, wrinkle care and sunscreen. I am more concerned about the wrinkle care because whether I like it or not, lines are slowly occupying my 40 year old face.

Coloring books and its surprising health benefits + GIVEAWAY

Contrary to what others think, that coloring is just for kids, well you are definitely wrong. Even adults can do it and in fact get health benefits from it.

Back in the 20th century, coloring is said to be a therapy method which some of us has just rediscovered. It says that coloring nourishes our brain areas that are associated with motor skills and creativeness. It can also control our emotions, taking our minds off our problems which results to feeling more relaxed and at ease.

On my first attempt (with an android app that lets you color by filling the white areas of a Mandala on my phone), I was not convinced but as I went along, I suddenly felt the courage to continue until I saw the final result. Though, I can confess right now that coloring is not for me, I can still vouch to agree that the above information are true and correct. I find myself more fit to draw and not color which works out the same actually. And whenever I feel the need to de-stress more, I color my own drawings and gain benefits from it – satisfaction and the feeling of courage that despite my age (where most one’s life begins teehee!), I can still do what our youngsters can do.

Below image is just one of my drawings which I named “Owl be yours forever”.

Thanks Nicquee for sending them over to me!
