The On-going Skin Challenge


"Argh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
is what I cry out every time I look into the mirror.
Ever since the beginning of 2010, I have had serious skin problems - and it doesn't go away. St. Ive's was the worst down-point of all, but the rest of the time wasn't fabulous either. I try not to stress over it and take it easy, butI seriously don't know why my skin is getting worse and worse. I don't put on anything heavy on the face, and cleanse it really throughly twice a day. I hydrate my skin pretty well (I think I do..-.-) and I basically use every known method to stop the break outs. Even the doctor didn't have a clear answer.

Anyway, so I'm getting really desperate and decided to reach out to mederma. I want to lessen the purple scars if I can't make my break outs go away.
So here's my sad skin situation.

Here's the right side.

And here's the left side.


So freakin gross, eh? The jaw line is so gross I don't even know what to do with it. When I look at my old videos and see my skin being in a much better situation, it makes me want to cry :'(


Anway, I decided to give mederma a chance and AT LEAST reduce some scars.
here's what mederma's about.





I am at a point where I pretty much gave up on the constant break outs, but I'll let you guys know how mederma works after a few months (or weeks).

And by any miracle, if my skin clears out - I will most definitely write a huge post on it.

Oh, Also, I have been using this Japanese cleanser after St. Ive's but recently I have switched to Neutrogena's oil-free acne wash since this product was one of the best acne killers that worked for me in the past.


Okay, hope you guys have a clear skin day! :)

Stay Happy!

Hi everyone, there was a small NYC meetup today. It was nice and cozy and not too overwhelming. Sorry I didn't post anything about the meetup. I wasn't sure if I could go or not. Anyway, they are planning to do another meet up in October, so I'll keep you guys posted :)

So here's some pictures that managed to come out nice.

Girls Walking

After the meetup Mel and I walked from 14th and Park Ave. S to Port Authority (42nd and 8th), which was a nice walk, haha. And Mel got her first taste of Shake Shack :D for those that are visiting NYC or in the area, you guys should def. try out Shake Shack. and I mean it!

It was really fun meeting up with the girls :D hope there will be more meet ups soon.

So what's up, Catalina?


Hi Everyone.
I feel extremely embarrassed how I just literally abandoned my youtube and blog for nearly two months. Some of you may have noticed, most of you might have not - but basically there has been a big change in my life - and I guess today's post is about what's up with me lately.

As some of you might know, I finished school and was a homebody for nearly a year. I had ample time on my hands and making/editing videos, photos, blogging and all that fun stuff was pretty easy to do. I wasn't in a rush to find a job, nor was a I worried (ha! stupid? that's what I think so to). It wasn't until recently I ran out of the luxury to sit at home and do what I like to do. In easy words, youtubing and blogging didn't pay even a small portion of the high living expenses of living in New York. A lot of things gave me a reality check earlier this summer. So what did I do? I threw myself out into the job market, and luckily got a job quicker than I thought I would.

So, to make a long story short - I have been busy with work and trying to adjust to a new life style and that was taking up too much time. I've tried to make some videos, but filming while the sun is setting is just not fun :'( With my personality, I just couldn't upload unsatisfying videos.

Anyway, that was a short reporting of why things are slow on my side. I will try my best to continue blogging and youtubing but please bear with me and understand that I don't have as much as time as I used to. I think having to work will definitely change many things, and that will also include my youtubing. I have been more focused on makeup tutorials, but I think I will have to throw in more reviews, collection videos or anything that doesn't require so much editing and time.

Okay, I'm going to go and continue to edit the video I filmed a couple of days ago.

Take care guys, and stay healthy! :)
