2016 Favorites

by - December 28, 2016

I know finding time to blog has been a real challenge for me this year and that's mainly because of bigger priorities on my plate.  There were times when I was feeling so sleepy but I would still push myself to complete a draft post.  I would also wake up earlier than usual so that I would have enough time to take photos before going to the office.

Another reason why my posts got lesser is because I tried to add more content to my Youtube channel.  It's more difficult to manage time if there's a video I need to work on and at the same time, do a product review.

Nevertheless, challenges are not meant to be a bad thing.  In fact, I think that's exactly what I needed.  It allowed me to be more organized, which is one of my goals in life and be more eager to finish whatever I started.

With less than 100 posts this year, I'd like to give you a big hug for showing your love for le blog despite of my idleness.  As part of my usual year-ender series, here's the round up of your favorite posts.

Product Review - Makeup

Maybe a lot of my readers are also greasy gals like me.  Haha!  

This product surprisingly works.  Surely, this would be abused during summertime next year.

Product Review - Skincare

Special thanks to Skin Station for letting me try this!  

My skin is so sensitive to sunscreen formula but this one didn't give me irritation.  It is lightweight and doesn't feel like sunblock at all, which I like because I'm not a fan of the icky, thick and heavily-scented ones.

Batch Review

I thought I'd separate this because it's a new series that I introduced this year.  Given my limited "blogging time", I had to squeeze in a bunch of products in one post.  However, I still tried to talk about each of the items as detailed as possible.

Burp Guide

I've been also writing about food less often now compared before.  Next year, ah nope, STARTING FROM NOW, I'll make sure to do at least one every month.

We forgot about Gerry's and Dencio's ever since we tried Kuya J.  Hihi.  Their Kare-Kare is a must-try!

Outside the Series

I'm still on the fence of buying the serum they used during the facial treatment - the Hyal-C.

I also mentioned that they gave me a few more GC's so I could try their other services and I might use one very soon.  

Now, let's check out the videos!

Most Watched Travel Video

So stoked when this reached 10,000 views!  This is actually my favorite part because you know, panda-chan. Hihi.

Most Watched Haul

I didn't like how the video turned out because of the bad lighting but I hope it helped you on your Althea shopping.

Most Watched Vlog

Do you think starting a regular vlog series is a good idea?  If you're down for it, what should we call it?  How about Ichi TV?  Hahaha!

Did I capture your personal favorite posts?

Again, thank you so much for trusting le blog.  It has been a never-ending learning experience for me and for you all, I'll make sure to improve more and give you guys more quality content.

It means a lot to me knowing that I could get to help someone through this blog, no matter how simple or small it is.  I bet it's mostly beauty related but still, the fact that I could reach out to people "virtually" is enough for me to feel that sense of fulfillment.  

So from the bottom of my happy, smiling heart, thank you soooooooooooooooo much!  Your girl will keep on striving, will slay more, will work hard, will kilay hard, will blind more eyes with highlight, you name it!  Hahahahaha!

Love you!

your sweetest drug,
