Thanks for being here! Your presence is greatly appreciated.
This blog documents my travels around and outside Japan. I’m into skincare products and I like sharing my experiences using them. To promote transparency, I’ll always state if a post is sponsored or an advertisement but my opinions will never be influenced. I’d like to think that I’m a woman of few words. So don’t be surprised to see that my posts are always short. But no matter how brief they are, they’re surely written straight from the heart. I hope you’ll find something useful, inspiring, or encouraging here as it’s the main reason why I’m here.

If there’s anything I can do to help, let me know. I’ll be grateful to receive suggestions, questions, and feedback from you.
Peace and love,

  1. Hi Ate Sheryl! I’m a new follower and I’m loving your blogs especially the Japan blogs! I visited Japan last January but we only get to see Tokyo and I’ve been wanting to go to Kyoto! I’ll definitely be referring back to your posts when I go there. It makes me excited when I read that you’re a Filipino! ❤️ I can’t wait to read more!!!
