I’ve been posting bits and pieces about my room renovation over the past few months (like here and here and here!). It’s been a labor of love, so I was super excited when some from Cosmopolitan Philippines asked if they could feature it in their October 2015 issue.
I’m usually the one directing everything behind the camera, so I had to adjust to “not working” during all this. Before I became a beauty editor, I was actually the lifestyle and features editor for Cosmo also—but that’s another story! I’ll tell you about how I had to prove myself to the higher ups and show that I could be a beauty girl some other day. For now, lookie! My room’s in Cosmo!
I wanted my room to have pops of happy colors sprinkled all around. I spent months looking for the right sofa, but in the end, I just had it made. I’d like to say I lounge there a lot, but lately, I’ve been throwing all my things on it! Haha!
When I was renovating, one of the most important parts of the room was my home office. I really wanted it to be clean, white, and very conducive for shooting my photos.
There’s so much more that you don’t see, so I think I’ll do a room tour for my YouTube channel soon (click here to watch videos and subscribe!). I have little cabinets that move around (for flatlays) and chests where I place all the products (meaning, to hide my clutter).
What I noticed the most about my room is that I like decorating with inspirational quotes. Hehe, it makes me happy and it helps me stay positive and sparkly. You can’t really see it in the photo, but I even write stuff like that on my glass board.
So that’s it! Hope you liked taking a peek into my room. Thank you so much to the Cosmo Philippines team (and Love Ocampo!) for including me in this month’s issue–and for calling my room a beauty blogger’s heaven! I’m very kilig! ♥
