Kikay Corner’s Christmas Gift Ideas 2015

A list of what to give your loved ones this Christmas.

It’s exactly 25 days until Christmas, are you officially done with your shopping list? For the first time in forever, I can actually say I am done with holiday shopping! I realized that it’s a general tone for people to sound quite burdened when it comes to checking off Christmas lists, I’m choosing the other road this time around. This year, I resolve to being thrilled to be blessing the people I love. Not that I didn’t enjoy giving the past years, but unlike before, I now refuse to be weighed down by the pressure of having to give. Besides, the Bible verse is timeless: “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”

It has been an eventful year and I have been truly blessed by the people I’ve come across with – whether they are new ones or have spent time with a bunch of old friends as we nurture this gift called friendship.

Here’s hoping to share with you my personal picks for Christmas Gift Ideas 2015.

1. Presence.


Merriam-Webster perfectly defined for us what presence mean. And as seemingly corny as it sounds, it truly has been an elusive thing these days. We’ve exchanged our presence for social media “connection,” and even when we’re with our loved ones, we tend to still be stuck, heads down, eyes glued on our smartphones. I’m guilty as charged. Obviously with my own albeit trivial online presence, I tend to check how my published posts are doing. But I’ve been doing better these days at being “present,” and hope to do better as I spend more time with family this holiday season.  As costless as “presence” seem to sound, it actually can cost us our default, which is to get hold of our smartphone. Offer the gift of your “presence” and have a real, meaningful conversation and quality time with the one you love. The gift of undivided attention is priceless!

Okay, before you get driven off the wall and begin to point out the many ways I’m contradicting myself, allow me to say that it’s really a matter of balance. (more…)

“Filipinos love car shows because we can relate to the cars we see. It is always a delight for us to see so many nice cars in one place. You can always see the excitement in people’s eyes when they are in a car show and you also know deep inside that they feel inspired—that one day, they will also have these upgrades or these kind of rides in their garage,” said Jonathan Chio, CEO of Ladder Events Production.


Bumper to Bumper (B2B) has been bringing the car show not only to Manila but to 10 key cities, including Baguio, Batangas, Cebu, Davao, General Santos, Iloilo, Laguna, La Union, Pampanga, and Pangasinan since 2005. It has since been the only local car show known that has done such feat, in its pursuit to bring the best of the best automotive mods across the Philippines. (more…)

No More PMS Worries

At some point in your life, you will meet a woman who snaps irrationally, craves uncontrollably and shops like mad, once in every month. This usually happens a week or two before their period and the science behind it – premenstrual syndrome or PMS.

Study suggests that for 1 in 20 women, PMS is intense enough to cause disruption to the quality of their life, resulting to misunderstanding with their loved ones. Though PMS can sometimes be mistaken with anxiety or depression, it can be identified by its symptoms such as mood swings, loss of confidence, being emotional and irritable. What makes this worse is that women also undergo physical struggles such as headaches, migraines, abdominal bloating, breast tenderness and even asthma. PMS may be a monthly battle women learned to live with but you can always look for back up – ATC Evening Primrose.

Beauty Product Feature: Nivea Deo Whitening Range and #NiveaFairandFirm

First off, thanks to Nivea for allowing me first dibs of their latest products. Something that I appreciate and never gets old on me. I love discovering products that raise the bar up a notch or two (or more, really). With research, development and science breakthroughs come after another, there’s no other way but for brands to level up their game and it’s always good for us consumers because a healthy competition will inevitably give us products that are superior – which for the most part, give us value for our money (with concerned issues addressed). It’s a win-win, really. The brands get their following and us consumers get our issues addressed.

Thank you to my Nivea family for sending this gift. Soon on the blog. #NiveaFairandFirm #bloggermail

Skin Matters: Online Skin Care Expert

While it’s true that some beauty blogs have gained considerable authority when it comes to the number of followers and good, even viral posts, expertise on skin care is something else really. Beauty blogs (including mine) usually publish beauty products/regimen that work for us. We review products and give our take on brands but that’s it. Although we’re sharing a handful lot and have gained confidence that we know what we’re talking about, at the end of the day, truth remains that skin issues are vast. What might work for me, might not work on another skin type. This is why I mention disclaimer on my posts, even if I’m super duper stoked on what I might even consider a new beauty find as “holy grail.”


I recently attended a talk on’s led by Editor-in-Chief Nicole Romero. Skin Matters is not your regular beauty blog. It is a website dedicated to skin care, a collaboration of Unilever, the Philippine Dermatological Society and an editorial team of skin care experts and writers. The goal is to offer concerned men and women an omnibus site of everything skincare related. It especially caught my attention after learning that Skin Matters does not just post random articles on a whim. They actually look into Google trends data related on skin care and that’s what they tackle – making every article they post, relevant. (more…)
