Caruso Ristorante Italiano- Authentic Italian Dining in Nicanor Garcia, Makati

Fancy Italian? Caruso Ristorante Italiano has been serving authentic Italian cuisine in Makati for almost 10 years now, but it was only recently that I came to learn about the place. Owned by true-blooded Italians Emilio Mina and Dario Gardini, one can only expect an authentic Italian dining experience. 

The ambiance at Caruso transports you to a Milanese-inspired setup without being too intimidating- warm-lamp lighting, chic bar area, woody accents, simple chairs, and a piano to complement the cozy and romantic vibe. In fact, the place felt quite homey and comfortable even with Italian expats enjoying their glass of wine at the nearby table.

Etude House Philippines Stay Up Foundation in Beige with SPF 30/ PA++

The love month may be over, but here I am sharing one of Etude House's newest products perfect not just for the Valentine season, but for all year round. Finally, something to write about other than food! I'm no makeup guru or an expert in beauty and fashion, but I do love glamming up once in a while. I may not share a lot about it, but I do have my daily skin care rituals and basic makeup routine.

So when I received Etude House's Stay Up Foundation in Beige (P778), I was all giddy and excited. Mainly because it was a product that I really use.

"Etude House Philippines (Rosa Fiore House Corporation) is a cosmetic brand that believes makeup should be playful and not routine. Etude House's mission is to make every Princess’ dream a reality through their lovely products. Their products are developed to reflect four basic concepts: high quality, affordability, lovely design, and a diverse color range."
