OXY Cover Acne Pimple Medication | Review

It’s the day before an important event, and you suddenly develop a big, shiny, swollen red zit on your face!  Don’t you just hate that?  And don’t you hate it even more when that happens to be your everyday dilemma? You go to work and you interact with people six days a week and oh, by the way, your unwelcome guest brings a few more of its friends along and they all seem to have decided to take permanent residency on your face! You’re then left with a choice between leaving the nasty li’l suckers alone...

Coming To America | The Upshaw Texas Vacation

My family is on vacation right now in Texas.  Those of you who follow me on Facebook and Twitter must have already known that for a couple of weeks now.  I’m sorry for the delayed updates here on MyMy Blog.  For real-time updates, you’ll get that from me via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.  So, connect with me on those social media platforms, if you haven’t yet. Prior to our trip to the U.S., my family spent a week in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and also stopped by Frankfurt, Germany.   I promise to...

The “No Makeup” Makeup Look (Updated)

Three years ago, I introduced four fabulous products that I said would be all you’ll need in order to achieve that “no makeup” makeup look. Now, I am sharing with you a video demonstration of my step-by-step routine for achieving the “no makeup” makeup look, using an updated lineup of products I’ve personally started using between the time I published the previous post and perhaps as recent as a few months ago. Although I highly recommend the products I used on the video tutorial, you may use whatever brands...

An Open Letter To Gwyneth Paltrow | My Thoughts

As an actress, I like Gwyneth Paltrow.  I found her so endearing in Shallow Hal, Shakespeare In Love, and even more in the Iron Man movies.  What’s not to like about her?  She’s beautiful, she has flawless skin, a perfectly svelte figure that would have every woman cursing the day she’s ever eaten a cupcake, a fashion maven, a gifted singer, a momtrepreneur!  She also has a lifestyle blog and three cookbooks published (every Mom Blogger’s dream)! It’s undeniable, she has been living a...

Carlton Hotel Singapore (Part 2)

Last month, I published the first part of my feature post on the Carlton Hotel Singapore where I shared with you some photos of the lobby and other nice things about the ground level of the hotel.  I apologize that it has taken me a while to publish the second part.  Anyway, as promised, I am sharing some more photos and information – this time, of our hotel room and the outdoor swimming pool which was the only other place in the hotel where Arra and I hung out during our weekend staycation at the Carlton Hotel...

MyMyBlog Advisory: Freebie Friday Postponed!

Exasperated By DHL Thailand!   My Dear Readers, Due to a recent hurdle I had gone through with DHL Express International (Thailand) Ltd. in shipping a package to another country, I regret to inform y’all that my monthly #FreebieFriday will have to be temporarily put on hold until (a) I return to Manila, or (b) I find a better courier service to use within Phuket.

Got To Believe: Why We Love It & Why It’s Hard To Say Goodbye

With only a couple of hours left until the highly anticipated #BestEndingEver of one of the most successful prime-time Pinoy teleseryes to ever hit the “boob tube”, I’m sure that Got To Believe (fondly referred to as “G2B” by Filipino netizens) fans from all around the globe are experiencing a swirl of mixed emotions.  On one hand, they can’t wait to witness the “happily-ever-after” conclusion to the Joaquin-Chichay love story.  On the other hand, I’m sure they dread...

Basic Eye Makeup Application

The following set of instructions was taken from my recently published makeup video tutorial on Youtube. The video tutorial, which you will also find at the end of this post, was a step-by-step demonstration of what I consider to be a Basic Eye Makeup Application Technique.  Super easy.  Super simple.  Anyone can do this – and I mean ANYONE – I guarantee (even those who think they’re not so good at blending colors)! Thank you so much in advance for watching the video!  Don’t forget to watch it on HD...

10 Ways To Harness The Power Of Positive Mornings

Some time in August and September of last year, I posted a short series of motivational tips on my Facebook page which I referred to as “The Power Of Positive Mornings”. It was very well received by my Facebook followers and friends (thanks, Guys!), so I thought I’d round up all seven posts in that series and publish it here as one blog post, along with three new additions.  That way, if you need a gentle reminder any time, you may all just go to this post and read it all over again. I am a strong believer in the power...

Arra Upshaw, At Seventeen

Has it been one year already?  Really? Wow!  Time does fly so fast! It seems like it was only yesterday when I published my post on my daughter Arra Upshaw’s 16th birthday.  Now, I’m writing about her 17th. Oh boy! I know it took me almost three months to share this with y’all and I once again apologize for the delay, but y’all had been recently made aware of the challenges I’m facing regarding blogging backlog.  I’m ‘slowly but surely’ trying to catch up – one blog...

Carlton Hotel Singapore (Part 1)

Some time around the Holiday Season last year, I took my daughter Arra to a weekend staycation in Singapore.  It was Arra’s second time to travel to Singapore but she has no memory of the first time because she was barely a year old when that happened. My main objective, quite honestly, was to take Arra to Universal Studios as a post-birthday treat to her.  Big Daddy and I have talked about the idea many times in the past and I was so thrilled that we were finally able to do it for Arra.  She has proven herself...
