Please do watch it and I hope that you will be inspired and all the more accepting of the Real Beauty that each of us all have 🙂

Why morena? Well, because I am morena, too 🙂 Growing up, I never really liked my color. I think it’s also because of the Pinoy culture – that we always thought that women who are fair-skinned are more beautiful. But, thank God, He made me realize that being morena is beautiful, too.

Psalm 139: 13-14

    you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 
14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
    your works are wonderful, 
    I know that full well.

So, let’s get this beauty/makeup blog started! Yay!

XOXO,
