Sumptuous Sundays: Ramen Nagi


I haven't been blogging about food lately because I am pretty strict with my diet. Well, I don't really want to call it a diet, but rather a lifestyle because I think I want to stick with this for life. (It's called Feast Your Fat Away by Nate Miyaki, by the way)

But I still do have my cheat days. I'm only human and I have cravings too! I have one cheat meal every week to keep me sane. :) Today's cheat meal is brought to you by Ramen Nagi. :)

Originating in Japan, Ramen Nagi has gained steady popularity amongst the Ramen- loving Filipino crowd because of their DIY Ramen dishes. I even read a list called Top Ramen Restaurants in Manila and this restaurant tops the list.

Lolita Lempicka L'Eau Jolie EDT Review

Here's a review on Lolita Lempicka L'Eau Jolie EDT.

Price: 30ml- P1,950.00; 50ml- P2,950.00
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in Rustan's department stores


When I go to meetings and client presentations, you know what kind of fragrance I wear? Warm floral. Because it exudes wisdom, brilliance, depth, and elegance-I just feel that my clients take me seriously when I sport a deep perfume. And since this type of perfume is strong and captivating, I create the impression that I know what I'm talking about and I know why I'm doing whatever I'm doing.


It is so hot right now. As much as I want to wear my favorite warm florals in my upcoming meetings, I can't 'cuz they just become heady if worn in this kind of weather so they're on a hiatus, specifically in the fridge. Don't wanna risk wearing them to my lunch meetings or else, I might blow my chances with my clients just because the perfume is killing me haha! Lolita Lempicka L'Eau Jolie takes the place of all my warm florals (for now!) because it's a refreshing floral with hints of warmth here and there. I get the best of both worlds with this fragrance.

More about this favorite of mine after the jump!

FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: Skin Care Tips For Men!?

Surprisingly, there are guys who are actually reading this blog! :D Because it takes a real man to care for himself and his looks! Our FMF for today is from a dude named Mike. 

Hi Martha!  
My girlfriend loves your blog! I was wondering if you have any skincare tips for your male readers. My skin is normal-combination, but might be considered dry compared to my other male friends. I also don't get pimples and have slight facial hair. Thank you in advance!

Hi Mike!

Hello to your girlfriend and thank you for trusting me with your skin care concerns. I'm no guy, obviously, but I've an equally vain brother and boyfriend (If you, bragh and Randy, are reading this post, peace out lol! :D) and they take real good care of themselves! I've kinda' observed how their skin care routine is like and we've also talked about skin care- related stuff in the past. I'm more than happy to share the things we've discussed after the jump. :)

Fitness and Fashion Hauls

Sooooo.....I lost a good amount of pounds already and I now have the courage and drive to go shopping for clothes. Well, I'm not yet contented with what I have achieved so I only bought a few and they're mostly basics, while the rest are for my Boracay trip next week (I'm sooo excited!). I also got a few stuff for my workouts. :)

Here are some stuff from Forever 21. I got a multicolor tribal romper, a lacey inner midrib for muscle tees and side boob- bearing tops (lol), and linen shorts for Boracay.

I also found the black high slit skirt that I've long been looking for in Forever 21! The printed leggings, I just had to get it because I'm addicted to it lately. :)

The rest of my hauls after the break. :)

Eye Of Horus Eye Pencils Review

Here's a review on Eye Of Horus Eye Pencils.

Price: P990.00/each
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in selected Snoe Beauty branches; Glamourbox online


If I could recommend one pencil liner that stays true to its waterproof claim, it would be Eye Of Horus. I've tried so many "waterproof" eyeliners, but nothing delivers quite like this one. If Cleopatra were living today, I could imagine her hoarding these! This ultra gentle, caring eyeliner is excellent for tight lining, eye lining, and lining the waterlines.


Eye Of Horus is a proud Australian brand built around one woman's love for eye liners. All the liners are Paraben and Cruelty- Free, and safe for sensitive eyes. It's has skin- caring benefits because the liners are laced with Moringa Oil to nourish the lashes and lids.

The roster includes 9 shades from the basics to jewel- toned ones. 


I'll be swatching 'em for you after the cut!

Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm Review

Here's a review on Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm in Flirtatious, Provocateur, and Vivacious.

Price: P575.00
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in all leading drugstores and department stores


One of my art frustrations is pottery that's why I'm drawn to anything related to it, especially the beautiful, lacquered ones. I've witnessed a clay pot- making session in Ugu Bigyan way, way back-I even had the chance to try it myself and dang, it was hard and I think I ended up creating a spoon than a pot haha! Since then, I never looked at clay pots and pans the same way again-there's just so much art, skill, and dedication that go into those things!

No we're not gonna talk about clay pots today, but Lacquers-Lip Lacquers to be specific. The new Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm is just the thing you need if you want that artsy, brilliant, paint- like color on your lips!


Revlon said that these balms were made to deliver a craveable, noteworthy lacquer- like finish and intense moisturization with the Triple Butter Complex (Shea, Mango, Coconut). Available in 10 shades.

Product comes in the same packaging and look as the previous Colorburst Balms. To avoid confusion, the Matte Balm has a matte tube, Just Bitten Lipstain has a jelly- like tube, and Lacquer Balm has a glossy, foil- like tube.

More about this favorite Colorburst Lip Balm of mine after the jump!

Easy Peasy Video Editing with Videoshop

I’ve been posting a lot of my workout vids on Instagram (if you’re following me, hope you’re not getting sick of it haha!) because I want to document my fitness journey which I called Road To Abs. Instagram only allows 15 seconds of worth of video so I can’t compile everything or make a decent, longer video.

I discovered Videoshop via a friend and I had to download it because it’s got some cool editing features that will allow me to make longer and nicer videos! Had to purchase it right away and thankfully, I have GCash Amex Virtual Pay right in my iPhone-no need to borrow someone else’s credit card!
