My Life as a Blogger with Cebu Bloggers Society

Who would have thought that I would become a blogger someday? Way back then, I was just this shy little girl who's afraid of talking to others. A kind of girl who prefers in keeping her thoughts to herself than sharing it to anyone else.

For the past few years, blogging became my gateway of expressing myself to others and it was not that easy as you might think. I have undergone a lot ups and downs and also experienced being judged and criticized by others. I even received a comment that I am a "self called blogger" so I started to question myself if I am not good enough. Of course, it  lowers my self esteem. I was about to quit, but I realized that people will always judge you no matter what you do to them. You just have to continue doing what you love as long as you know that you did not hurt the feelings of others.
On my journey, I was able to meet the members Cebu Bloggers Society who has the same passion as me. They taught me a lot of things that helped me to improve as a blogger and as a person. Even though I am not one of the Top Bloggers of Cebu, they still accepted me wholeheartedly without any judgments.
Cebu Bloggers Society just marked its 10th year in the industry last February 14, 2018 and as a celebration we will be having our Cebu Bloggers Society 10th Anniversary Gala Night this coming Saturday, March 03, 2018 at 3 pm in Cebu Parklane Hotel. It will be our largest event and this wouldn't be possible without the support of my co members, brands, companies and PR agencies who continued to trust and believe Cebu Bloggers Society.

Make up Brushes by Zaful

First of all, I would like to tell you guys that I am not a beauty guru. I am just sharing my thoughts and opinions about make up. If you have other way in doing your make up, please continue in doing it because what matters most is the result.

Make up brushes is really a must in doing our make up. It helps us to flawlessly spread the beauty products on our face. Way back then, I only use my hands in applying make up. (Like the foundations and other stuffs). Make up brushes is not yet popular at that time and I used to live in a province where make up is not necessary but I noticed that applying make up with a brush has different effect than applying make up with our bare hands.

When Zaful contacted me to review their make up brushes, I got excited so I researched their company in the web. Unfortunately, I saw a lot of bad reviews about their company that leads me to lessen my expectations. When the items arrived in our doorstep, I was amazed. In just a glance on their brushes, you can immediately say that they are made of high quality materials. It really did exceed my expectations. I though that it will look like a trash just like the reviews that I saw but I was wrong. It is really true that we should not judge a book by its cover.

Zaful is a one stop online shop for today's most daring, exciting and edgy fashion apparel. Their affordable collections are all about redefining trends, design excellence and exceptional quality to satisfy the needs of every aspiring fashionista. The original idea about their company is to share the latest news and fashion trends on women’s clothing with fashion-forward, free-thinking girls, and we offer the fast fashion worldwide. 

It was established with a clear vision: to provide the very latest in compelling designs for the fashionably hip along with providing exceptional value, quality, and superb customer service. They offer a select choice of clothing, shoes, accessories and more to deck out your wardrobe with style. Their exciting brands consist of emerging new designers and their discerning buyers have a keen eye for the best look anywhere so they can always find a style to call their own. Fashion is more than simply style: it also represents their aspirations, which is why their designs are as unique and individual as them.

Here are the Make up brushes they sent to me: 
Powder Blush Brush
Exact placement of concealer in harder to reach areas such as around the eyes and nose, chin and around the mouth.
 Face Powder Brush
Blend mineral products onto the skin
Precision Face Brush
 Application of liquid or cream products to flat areas of the face such as forehead and cheeks.
