I’ve been thinking a lot about my relationship with food lately because I feel like it’s time to make healthier choices…

Hands down, brunch is my favorite meal! Took this pic back in Barcelona at Brunch & Cake—super yum!

Ughhh…how am I going to give this up? I love dairy, I love cheese, I love bread, I love my cookies and cakes…but I am also starting to love my health more. I’m just at a place in my life where I want (and need!) to make healthier food choices. So here are THREE THINGS I’m considering:

1. Taking A Food Intolerance Test
I don’t like guessing games and I’m certainly not going to stop eating something that I love on the mere chance that it causes inflammation. So I’m trying to find the best place to get a Food Intolerance Test (FIT). It’s not as expensive as it used to be when this whole trend started, but it is still quite an investment.

Here's the package at Bio Balance. But I also inquired at Health Cube in Greenhills and their FIT is only P9,900.

Review: Laneige Time Freeze Eye Serum

During the last quarter of 2015, I had a lot of trouble sleeping. I was going to bed at like 2 a.m. and waking up at 8 a.m. Needless to say, it was horrible and my undereye area was definitely suffering.

 And this was my savior!! The Laneige Time Freeze Eye Serum, P2,500.

Prior to using this, I was loyal to these two eye creams (see them here and here). Unfortunately, I noticed that the Estée Lauder one I was using had reached its peak and that it wasn’t doing anything for my skin anymore. So I made the switch!

If you want to reduce the sunken-eye look and lighten your dark circles, keep reading! I’ll talk more about the results I got after the jump! Continue reading
