The Wait is Over | UFC Fight Night in Manila!

Finally. Finally. Finally! :)
Having been a fan of mixed martial arts for years now, it has long been my dream to watch UFC fighters battle it out in Philippine soil. My wish has finally been granted as today, the UFC announced its much-awaited, first-ever Fight Night event in Manila.
UFC Fight Night Manila!
Scheduled on the evening of May 16, UFC Fight Night Manila will be held at the SM Mall of Asia Arena. Its international broadcast will be through UFC Fight Pass, and will air on the morning of May 15 in North America,

Ken Berger, Executive Vice President and General Manager of UFC Asia said, “We are thrilled to be kicking off our Asia event calendar in Manila this year. The UFC has a loyal and passionate fan base in the Philippines and we’re looking forward to bringing the very best of mixed martial arts to Manila for the first time. We have found a great event partner in SM Lifestyle Entertainment Inc. and are excited that the SM Mall of Asia Arena will be home to a historic UFC event that fans will remember for years to come.” 

Berger also noted that this will be the first and only South East Asian card for the year.

No fights have been officially announced as of this writing, but it's most likely that homegrown talents Mark Eddiva and Roldan Sangcha-an will be in the line-up. Fighters will Filipino roots such as Mark Munoz, Chris Cariaso, and John Dodson could also be included in the fight card, as well as notable Asian fighters such as Kang Kyung Ho and Hyun Gyu Lim.

Tickets will go on sale in March, launched in conjunction with SM Tickets.


Ornament Opportunities Throughout The Year.

Christmas lovers can stay in festive spirits all year long while searching for the next ornaments to put on the tree. There are many adventures and special events that you can commemorate with tree decorations, so keep looking for opportunities while counting down the days until it is time to bring out the tree again.

Christmas And Team Spirit
Sports like baseball and soccer take place in the spring and summer when most people are not thinking about winter activities anymore, so fans may miss out on the opportunity to express team loyalty. When going to games in any season, check out the gift shop for ornaments. Team ornaments generally take the typical circular form, but player pieces might be miniaturized versions of popular athletes.

Informed Decision Making 
A family already knows what to expect when using an artificial tree, which makes it easier to plan ahead. For example, Balsam Hill reviews list the size, color and lighting options for a tree, so a couple can decide which color schemes look best with their own tree. Home decor stores usually offer inexpensive, simple ornaments throughout the year that have multiple purposes. You can purchase these ornaments in bulk to add color and a unified look to a Christmas tree.

The Highlights
There are baubles that represent the many milestones in a child's life, but do not forget a few to show off adult achievements as well. Companies like Zazzle allow you to create personalized ornaments for graduation, anniversaries, owning a first home and more. There are many big moments throughout any year that might be worth celebrating and remembering, but even unique but small moments might make great ornaments. Look for ornaments that remind you of concerts, meals or other activities the family did together.

Around The World
Vacations cannot last forever, but the ornaments brought back from them can hang on the tree many years after the trips occurred. There are many versions of the Eiffel Tower that exist as souvenir ornaments for those who journeyed to Paris, but you can look for ornaments whether taking a long vacation in Europe or just visiting a new state for the first time.

Christmas ornaments do not have to be the same every year or consist solely of holiday themes. Something special that occurs in April or August could make for a great tree ornament, and this means that there are opportunities to collect decorations for Christmas all year.

Teaching Your Dog To Obey.

No matter what kind of dog you own, you can take it to a pet training facility so that they can teach it to obey commands if you don't have the time. The staff will work with dogs on an individual basis as well as in a group. Staff members will use positive reinforcement to teach commands instead of using negative methods that might scare the dogs.

One of the things to keep in mind is that the business might want you to come participate in the classes so that the dogs will learn your voice. This will make it easier to teach commands if you are a part of the process.

You will be able to see the proper pet training methods as well as approaches that you can use when your pets are in various situations, such as with children or when visitors come to the home. As long as you take the advice of the people who are training the dogs, you should be able to take those commands to your home so that your dog will know that you are in charge.

If you ever have any concerns, the facility will be able to answer questions so that you can continue in the training process.

Pucker Up! | Tony Moly Berry Berry Magic Lip Tint.

I made a resolve to not buy (or experiment with) new makeup, at least until I have tried and tested all the items in my 'to-blog' box. I really have one at home, where I place all the makeup that I need to swatch, try, and blog about. That box is now almost full, my goodness, but I will try my best to go through all (or at least half, lol) of those items within the next few weeks. (Take note of the operative word 'try', haha.)

Let's start with the Berry Berry Magic Lip Tint from Tony Moly. It's a color-changing, strawberry-scented lip tint in gel-form, and one of the best-selling products from the brand.
Tony Moly Berry Berry Magic Lip Tint, still sealed.
It comes in a clear and sturdy plastic pot. And I say sturdy because the clumsy ol' me accidentally dropped this while removing the seal, but it didn't crack or break. Whew! :)
Clear plastic pot.

The Berry Berry Magic Lip Tint comes in three variants - 01 Clear, 02 Green Apple, and 03 Grape. Mine is the clear one, as you can see.
01 Clear.
It has a gel-like consistency, and you can apply it using your pinkie or with a lip brush. I prefer using the latter for hygienic purposes, and because I don't like staining my fingers with it. Yes, it stains because this colorless product turns into a lovely shade of pink! Magic! :)
It gives a hint of pink when swatched on the skin.
Pink stains on my pinkie.
Here's how it looks like when worn.
Bare lips.
With Tony Moly Berry Berry Magic Lip Tint 01 Clear.
I love how this product moisturizes my lips (I actually skip the lip balm whenever I wear this), and gives it a pop of color at the same time. The color is buildable, and has great staying power, too. It fades a bit after eating and drinking, but it leaves your lips with a natural-looking, pinkish stain. 

Now if you're thinking of buying this from Tony Moly, look for the Delight Magic Lip Tint instead. It's the repackaged version, which was launched sometime last year. (I told you my blog backlog goes back to ancient times, haha!) 
Tony Moly Delight Magic Lip Tint.
The potted packaging and color-changing formula is the same. It's also priced at Php 198 (around $5), like its predecessor, the Berry Berry Magic Lip Tint. The only difference is that there are now four colors to choose from. Oh, and they tweaked the cap design, too. They added the name of the product, instead of just writing 'Tony Moly'.
Products Used:
FACE: Klairs Illuminating Supple Blemish Cream,
Benefit Erase Paste in Medium, Skin79 Skinny Mirror Pact.
EYES: Ever Bilena Eyebrow Pencil in Brown, BYS Waterproof Eyeliner,
Love & Beauty Eyeliner in Dark Brown, Fairy Drops Volume Burst Mascara.
CHEEKS: Tony Moly Cristal Blusher in Pleasure Peach.
LIPS: Tony Moly Berry Berry Magic Lip Tint in 01 Clear.

Have you tried color-changing lip products before? What brand/s are your favorite/s?
