Hello Kitty Collection and Hello Kitty House Tour!!

Meow! Do you love Hello Kitty? You will surely love to see this HUGE Hello Kitty Collection! 



Hello Kitty is really cute! I mean, she's a cat (or a girl) and she's pink! What else can you ask for? 

My friends know that I have been following a Hello Kitty collector on Instagram for years. I used to show them her account and tell them how much Hello Kitty stuff she has. I don't really remember how it started but we just ended up talking on Instagram through direct message. She also told me watches some of my vlogs! One day, I sent her a message and I asked her if it would be possible to meet her since I really want to see her in person. Of course, I asked her if I could also see her huge Hello Kitty collection. Fortunately, she said yes! 

I had the privilege to visit her at her home! I got to meet her and her family plus got to see her Hello Kitty babies. Prior to my visit to her house, I asked her if I could take few videos of her collection so I could share it on my YouTube channel!

Watch the video below to see her HUGE HELLO KITTY COLLECTION!!
(The video is in Filipino but I hope you still enjoy it. I believe Hello Kitty is a universal language and you would still be able to relish the video by just seeing her stuff!)




By the way, her name is Jen. You could see her entire Hello Kitty collection by following her on Instagram @Princess_Kitty_Jen!

First, let me show you Jen's Hello Kitty-filled bedroom!

This is what she mostly shares on her Instagram account. So, I pretty much had an idea how the bedroom looks. But I was still amazed when I saw it in person! Her room was a bit cramped but it was filled with Hello Kitty! 

She has Hello Kitty starting from the rug, cabinets, comforter, pillows, swivel chair, drawers and her entire collection of Hello Kitty makeup, bags, cameras, clothes, shoes, perfumes, watches and accessories!!!


But what I loved most about her room is her Hello Kitty Vanity table and Hello Kitty Mirror with lights and her Hello Kitty Swivel chair! 




I also got to see her Hello Kitty makeup collection, which are not cheap, I tell you! They are available at Sanrio, Sephora, Japan and Singapore!




Next, I got to tour her Hello Kitty Theater room filled with Hello Kitty stuffed-toys and collectibles! This is where she keeps her small Hello Kitty stuff. I'm pretty sure it would take someone an entire day to look at or to count all the Hello Kitty staying in this room. This also is where she keeps her "prized"Hello Kitty possession. She has 3 Hello Kitty cards personally hand-signed by Yuko Shimizu, the creator of Hello Kitty from Japan!  


I got to see her cute kitchen where she has all sorts of Hello Kitty kitchen appliances from soy sauce dispenser, rice cooker, waffle maker, bread toaster, microwave, humidifier, kitchen tools, and even a Hello Kitty REF!!

Annnnd one of my favorite parts! Her Hello Kitty bag collection!!! I wouldn't mind not owning any of her other Hello Kitty stuff but I would really love to own a Samantha Vega Hello Kitty handbag! 

The first time I went to Singapore, I searched for a Samantha Thavasa store! I wanted to buy one for myself! But, I held back when I found out how pricey these bags are!  Well, one costs around Php 8,000/$160 per bag so it's not THAT expensive. But I thought I wouldn't be able to use a Hello Kitty handbag all the time so I opted out. I am still amazed how much Samantha Vega bags has! She's really so blessed!  

Look! A giant Hello Kitty! She told me this was a gift from her husband for Valentine's Day a few years back. It's not available anywhere, though, as her husband just had this custom-made just for her! Aww, a loving and thoughtful husband and a huge Hello Kitty? One lucky woman, I say! 

This ceiling to floor mirror is relevant because this is where she takes her Hello Kitty OOTD for her Instagram. Hehe

After the fun house tour, she invited me to come with her to Hello Kitty Cafe in SM North EDSA! I have been wanting to go to that cafe, too! They sell all sorts of cute cakes, macarons and pastries! One would feel hesitant to take a bite into that cute cupcake, really! Especially if it has cute Hello Kitty face or bow topper.

Jen treated me to some Hello Kitty sweets! I got to taste Hello Kitty Cafe's Kitty Macarons and Kitty Cake! 


It was really fun touring Jen's house and going through her Hello Kitty stuff. I finally saw why she's so blessed. It's because she is so sweet and kind in person. I'm not saying this just because she let me visit her house. I am saying this because that's what I saw when I met her. I am happy I finally met someone I've been following on social media for years already. 

If you want to see the rest of her collection, go ahead and follow @Princess_Kitty_Jen on Instagram!

Of course, please don't forget to follow me @RealAsianBeauty on Instagram for more cute and pink stuff. Check out my other videos and hauls on my YouTube Channel REALASIANBEAUTY.

January 2017 YouTube Videos Roundup! - RealAsianBeauty

Do you ever feel that time and days really fly so fast? Just a couple of weeks ago, we were celebrating Christmas and New Year's and now, we woke up and just realized that Valentine's Day, too, is over! 

And because days really fly so fast, I just want to make sure you guys have seen all our uploaded videos for the month of January! I'm so happy that I was able to upload 7 videos on the first month of 2017!



NEW YEAR HAUL and SPONSORED PRODUCTS !


In this video, I featured all the sponsored and free products I got before 2016 ended. It was a collective haul of all the free products I got for the months of October, November and December. I must admit, this is one of the biggest haul videos I have ever done. It was so huge that I had to film in 3 different days so I had to wear the same clothes thrice! hehe I also filmed the video in English for our dear International Fluffies!


HOW TO CUT YOUR BANGS - DIY!


Full bangs? Airy bangs? Side swept bangs? Surely, bangs is the thing now! In this video, I showed how you could cut your own bangs at home. It's really easy and quick! I always cut my own bangs rather than going to the salon and spending money. In that way, I could cut it to my desired style and length. This is also a useful skill to learn, especially when you're aiming to be a Mom to cute kids (with bangs) in the future! Hehe


WHAT TO BUY IN DIVISORIA?


In this video, I showed some of the things one could buy at Divisoria. I also took photos on my phone so I decided to include them in a blog post. I love shopping at Divisoria because little amount of money goes a long way! You can read more about what you could buy at Divisoria in this link


EXO EXO'rDIUM in Manila VIP Ticket Giveaway!


How wonderful and faithful GOD really is! Just a few days before I posted this EXO Ticket Giveaway video, I was sighing and telling myself this would be the first time EXO would be in the Philippines and I won't get the chance to see them. I've been single for 7 years so I only got all the time (and money) to myself. But now that I have a BF, I have other things to consider. My BF didn't think it was practical to spend Php 12,000 in just 1 show. So, I lost all hopes. But then, BeautyPlus contacted me and said they wanted to send me to the EXO concert for free and that they'd be sponsoring a VIP Ticket giveaway for my followers! Truly a great way to start the year!


TIPS On How To Be A SUCCESSFUL YOUTUBER! 


I did a video with my friend Keren of BeautyKLove! In that video, I got the privilege to interview her and ask her few questions about her YouTube journey and how she was able to get 600,000 YouTube Subscribers! She also shared few tips and advice for aspiring YouTube Creators. She is a truly kind-hearted and humble woman and I truly admire her personality and disposition in life. If there is one Filipino YouTuber peg for me, it would be Keren!


MARIKINA CARNIVAL Food Park!


Food parks is the go-to place now! You see a lot of food parks here and there, and honestly, how does one know if the food park is worth visiting? I went to the Marikina Food Park to find it out myself. Watch the video to see if the place is really worth traveling to and visiting or if it's just because of Facebook hype!


NAIL ART Using Water Decal Stickers!


Nail Art will forever be my baby. My first love. This is where I started and this is where most of the Fluffies found out about me. I am most confident when I do nail art videos because it's diverse. In nail art, there's no race nor social status. It's nails that you see and not someone's material belongings, speaking accent or skin color. I remember how I was able to attract viewers from outside the Philippines because of my nail arts. That is why I always enjoy making nail art videos, because to me, nail art videos are universal. They speak a language everyone understands and accepts. 


I hope you were able to watch all these videos and have enjoyed them! My ultimate goal in making videos is really to bring entertainment and knowledge to my viewers. 

Please look forward to more YouTube videos this month! SUBSCRIBE to RealAsianBeauty on YouTube if you haven't done yet! New videos are uploaded every Wednesday and Saturday!

Affordable PROM MAKEUP & OUTFIT + GIVEAWAY! | Junior-Senior Prom 2017

PROM is coming! Have you prepared for your BIG DAY? It is one of the most-awaited days for the high-school students. It's the time to look good and be in glamorous gown and well-made hair and makeup. But I believe looking good doesn't mean having to spend a lot! 

Here's an affordable makeup + outfit that would "wow" your classmates' eyes but won't "ouch" your parent's wallets! (hehe)


In the video, I shared a lot of makeup tricks, especially for girls with acne-prone skin like me. I also used local products like Ever Bilena and Nichido and every household's item- Johnson's baby powder! 

I hope you watch the video until the end to find out more about this inexpensive PROM look and the giveaway!




Instead of the usual pink or blue gown, I thought red dress would also look good for prom. I also love bare-back dresses!


I got the dress from 168 in Divisoria for Php 1,000. It's still quite pricey but what I really loved about this dress is that it could be worn in 15 different ways! Actually, you could do more styles if you're creative enough! In the video, though, I only showed 6 styles because the others were too complicated to be done when you're alone. But I am sure you'd be able to pull it off when you ask for a little help from your Mom or your friend. 

I also got the dress in red because RED, especially in gowns and dresses, is such a powerful color. You could instantly look hot and fierce in red dress, even with just eye liner, red lips and sleek straight hair! 



The bouquet of flowers was from an online gift shop called PHGIFTS.COM! It was my first time ever to receive delivery flowers and now I know the feeling of having to receive flowers in a box! I felt special and I felt I won a beauty pageant or as if I'm dating a CEO of a company! Hehe (Not that I would replace my BF with a rich man. It's just how I felt!Hehe) 


This is how the bouquet looks! The flowers were still blooming when I got them and when I filmed this video But it became even more pretty after a few days when it reached it's full bloom!


Now, let's about the Makeup Giveaway! I know not everyone can afford pricey makeup. I can tell from my experience. I didn't have my own makeup set when I was in high-school. And I also know that not all parents can afford to buy full set of makeup for their daughters just for a one-night event. So, I thought if giving away a FULL SET of makeup from hair color to perfume so 1 Lucky viewer could enjoy her prom without having to spend a single cent on makeup! 


PROM MAKEUP GIVEAWAY :
-8 Pieces Pink Brush from MyMakeupBrushSet
-Contour and Conceal Palette from Pro Beauty Exclusives
-Sponse Blender from Pro Beauty Exclusives
Revia Hair Color (shade : Light Brown)

2. SCREENSHOT the photo (below) when you see it on the PROM MAKEUP video.
3. SHARE the screenshot photo on your Facebook and Instagram
4. Tell me WHY you want to win and USE the hashtag #RealAsianBeautyPROMGiveaway

Reminders:

-Include the title of the video on your post.
-It is better if I see the "SUBSCRIBED" logo on your screenshot post. :)


I hope you all have a wonderful prom experience, ladies! To be honest, I didn't experience prom. Sadly, my school was a Catholic School but they didn't hold JS Proms then! Oh, hey! Have I mentioned it was the same school Liza Soberano went to? Hehe

I hope you enjoyed my simple makeup tutorial and were able to pick up some beauty tips!

What To Buy In DIVISORIA and Where To Find Them??

I still remember when I was in High-School, I attended a school where we're allowed to wear casual (civilian) clothes every Friday. Some of my classmates wore trendy clothes and I would often hear them say "Sa Divi lang galing 'to!" That's when I got really interested to shop in Divisoria! How come these rich and cools kids at school wear trendy clothing pieces and they claim they are inexpensive?! It must really be a cool shopping place! I told myself.

Since then, Divisoria has been one of my favorite places to shop! I'm not sure of this, but I think I am one of the first Filipina YouTubers to ever do a Divisoria Haul video. I remember I did it in English because back then, I had more foreign viewers than Filipino viewers and that I wanted to show them the places we have here. Now, Divisoria has become one of the most trending topics and viral videos on YouTube. I even see some celebrities do their own version of the "Divisoria Haul". 

But what can you really buy in Divisoria? Is it really worth going there? Where do you find what you want to find? 



Here is a HAUL video showing everything that I got from Divisoria on my last visit, how much each item costs and where you could find them!




Since one of my New Year's Resolution is to SAVE MORE, BUY LESS and SPEND LITTLE, I only purchased few items. Here's everything I bought. (In case you couldn't watch the video I embedded.)


Unlike my other Divisoria shopping adventures, you can see that I only bought few items this time. But, I regret nothing! Before, I used to think I should buy everything I see because I do not know when I'd see it again or if I'd ever come across it again. But this time, I tired something different. And I am encouraging you to try it, too!

DIVISORIA SHOPPING TIPS from Kristine!


1.) SET YOUR BUDGET - Most of the time, people go to Divisoria with thousand of pesos in their wallet thinking this is the "time of their life" to go around Divisoria and buy whatever it is that looks and seems pleasing. Now, I am influencing you to just bring certain amount of money and then try to stretch it. In my case, I just bought Php 2,500 and told myself I wouldn't buy anything that I already have, don't need and is not on my list.

2.) MAKE A LIST - Speaking from experience, I used to be a "One Day Millionaire" shopper at Divisoria. Buy this, 2 of this. Buy that, and that, too. Oh, yes, pink and purple of that, please! This time, I made sure I wrote a list of all the things I need for my upcoming YouTube video and for my travel next month. Other things were items I have been intending to buy. Fortunately, I was able to find everything on my list, didn't buy any excessive clothes or cheap shoes and was able to maximize my Php 2,500 budget without having to look for a nearby ATM to withdraw money.

3,) BRING AN ECO BAG - In Divisoria, most people don't care about the environment. They give plastics, lots of them. They throw cigar butts, candy wrappers and chip wrappers on random areas. And then, come rainy season, they complain about the waste pollution and flood in the place. The problem is that not a lot of people care enough to bring their own shopping bag. Bringing your own recyclable shopping bag means one less plastic waste on the streets. If you also bring your own, you get to put everything in the bag instead of having to hold loads of plastics, that eventually mark your palms or tear up. It is also convenient to just hang the eco bag on your shoulder so you still have two hands free for more Divisoria exploring!


* * *


This Divisoria blog post is unplanned. I usually don't vlog or take pictures in Divi when I'm alone because I'm still afraid of snatchers and pick-pockets. Good thing, I had my Gionee Elfie phone. I took the photos so I could share them to my RealAsianBeauty Group Chat. Surprisingly, the photos turned out decent. I think, aside from the affordable goodies in Divisoria, me buying that Php 4,500 Slim Gionee Phone was also a great deal!

HOW I GET TO DIVISORIA : I take the LRT to RECTO Station in Manila. I then get off and take the jeepney going to Divisoria. From there, the jeepney driver would signal the passengers to get off before the corner as he would then take a turn to the other street.

This has been my usual route and it has never failed me. I always cross this footbridge to get to the other side. One of first agendas, always, is to check if the vendors have again built their shanties on this road. Thankfully, the road is still quite clear and passable. 



Some people asked me how I was able to take this selfie on the bridge Well, it was a weekday when I went so the place wasn't too busy and crowded. I was the only person on the bridge then so I quickly snapped a selfie. I won't urge you to do the same, though, if you're going on a weekend and are using an IPhone. Pickpockets love that Apple logo!

My adventures starts by walking along the street infront of Tutuban. The street is mostly narrow and crowded but I enjoy walking through it as I get to see items such as curtains, pajamas, home items, children's toys and more. 

One store that caught my attention was this store that sells acrylic cases and containers! Ahh, heaven for bloggers and YouTubers, right?



After that, I turn left and then go past this street in front of 999 Mall and 168 Mall. This road is even more narrow as the stalls are closer with each other. On the street, you will find trendy tops, curtains, accessories, kitchen wares, Christmas decorations and more.


Hey, wait! They also sell "fake" Divisoria books now? Hehe




Always my first store stop is at the old 999 Mall Pasilio A Stall 1A7. It is the dress shop that I have featured in many of my Divi Vlogs! They sell dresses for as low as Php100! I also appreciate that the owner and the sales attendants are all nice and warm. They make me want to hoard Divi dresses!

After my "courtesy call" to my favorite dress shop, I chanced upon one of my viewers Joan! She recognized me and said "Uyy, si Real Asian Beauty!" Hehehe

Hi, Joan! It was so nice meeting you! Thank you for sasying Hi! :)


Here are other things you will find at the OLD 999 MALL. 

Colored Hair Extensions.


Mermaid Color Paddle Brush.


TOOOONS of Makeup. I don't know if fake, though. But surely, some stores sell FAKE Kylie, MAC, Anastasia, Colourpop, etc. I just didn't think it was appropriate to include (promote) them here. I would never encourage you guys to buy fake over inexpensive drugstore brands. :)


HELLO KITTY!!


Birchkin Bags


After I go around the first and second floors of the OLD 999 Mall, I then go back to the same entrance I passed by. Eat about 10 pieces of Squid Balls that costs Php2 each and then proceed to the 168 Mall. 


On Sale Bags and Purses 

That's where I got my Php250 Black Backpack in the Haul Video. One viewer sent me a link to an online shop. To my horror, I found out that are selling the EXACT same bag for Php 1,350!! 


Polo Shirts for your BF, Hubby, Father or Brother. 


Stuffed Toys and Plushies. 



A HUGE Teddy Bear, perfect for Valentines Day!


Party Needs and Decorations for Different Occasions. 


Bedroom Decorations. 


AND GOWNS and WEDDING DRESSES!!!



Divisoria really is a haven for shoppers. If not only for the busy roads and crowded streets, I would recommend this as a family shopping place. They cater all sorts of merchandises perfect for every member of the family. But since women love to shop, men leave Divisoria to us. (Hehe)


So, good luck on your next Divisoria Shopping Adventure! I hope this post somehow helped you and inspired you to shop but shop wisely!

How To Join Our RealAsianBeauty Group Chat (Step-by-Step Tutorial)

Do you want to talk to me or message me personally but you're afraid because you think I won't respond? How about a message you've sent about 3 months ago but is still left unopened and unseen? It's surely because it has been buried in other personal messages that I have yet to read and respond to.

My FLUFFIES know that I really take time to read and respond to each and every personal message. But sometimes, it takes few sleepless nights just so I could respond to all the messages. I really enjoy reading and responding but sometimes I feel like I am making you guys wait for too long...

That's why I decided to open a GROUP CHAT for us! 



I thought of a way where we could chat but still keep our personal information private like complete name, e-mail, and phone number. I suddenly remembered I used Kakotalk with my Korean students because and it has one of the best features - the OPEN CHAT. (PS this is not sponsored by Kakaotalk! Hehe)

Kakaotalk allows us to openly but still making sure our privacy is kept. I love it because I could customize the numbers or participants in the group chat. We could also send photos, videos and voice messages.

I started this group chat back in November 2016. Since then, it has become one of my habits and I am online on it 24/7!

That's why, if you want to get to know me more and be able to get real-time update and bond with your fellow FLUFFIES, I am encouraging you to join our Official RealAsianBeauty Group Chat NOW! 

HERE'S HOW!

1.) Go to the APP STORE on your phone and Install KAKAOTALK.


2.) Once you're on it, click the YELLOW PLUS BUTTON on the bottom of the screen. Then click OPEN CHAT.



3.) On the search box, TYPE RealAsianBeauties.



4.) Kakaotalk will then show you this result. This is OUR GROUP CHAT! Click on it to enter the room!


5.) To ensure that only the loyal FLUFFIES are in the group chat, I put a PASSCODE before you can enter. But don't worry, all you have to do it to send me a personal message on either Facebook or Instagram and I shall respond to you and give you our passcode!




It's really that easy! 

If you've seen or read my post on the RealAsianBeauty Christmas Party, you might have noticed how we are all so close and comfortable with each other already. Take note that it was my first time to meet most of them that day! It's because we have been talking on the Kakaotalk Group Chat already! It's really one of the perks of joining this chat room!




Why you should join our RealAsianBeauty Chat Room :
*You can ask me questions anytime
*You get your response right away
*You get to know me more
*You meet new friends and bond with other Fluffies
*You get real-time updates
*You get perks and privileges like private giveaways or event invites


It's has already become a habit for me to check this group chat. I am literally on it from the time I wake up 'til I close my eyes. (Lol that sounded like a song!) I have also gotten more close with the members of the room. They were able to share with me about their life, and I in return, have also shared more details about me and personal life stories. I really hope to see you there! 

Have a nice day, FLUFFIES!

Kristine
