My name is Valerie! I love all things makeup, fashion, food, self-love, and shiny. Just your usual millennial, I suppose.

Born in Chicago, raised in Iligan City, Philippines, and currently living in a charming little shoebox just outside San Francisco with my husband. I like thrift shopping on Haight-Ashbury and Valencia, spending Sundays picnicking at the park, finding the best Thai restaurant in town, watching crime shows on Netflix, and hunting for the perfect pair of jeans.

My passions include self-care, perfectly applied winged eyeliner, Sunday brunches, bottomless mimosas, body positivity, trips to Target, perfect selfie lighting, period dramas and crime shows, getting all dressed up, and eating my weight in sushi.
