Roommate of the Month for July 2017

Hi, roommates!

Want to know who will be our next ‘Roommate of the Month’? Good news is that our Sample Room detectives, after a week of doing research and stalking stuff (yes, you read it right!), have finally found ‘the one’ who fits the title for the month of July!

Seen active since 2015, this lovely loyal roomie always makes sure that she has something good to share with her fellow moms as she posts her latest mommy and baby must-haves that she got from Sample Room. With all these efforts, the time has come to give this 28-year-old mommy blogger and software engineer a wonderful recognition.

Dear roomies, we’re happy to introduce our ‘Roommate of the Month’ for July – Suzette Timbreza a.k.a. Suzie!


And because we’re interested to know how she makes time for herself and for her blog despite her busy schedule, we’ve prepared some questions for her to answer…



1. Tell us about you and your blog.

“I am Suzie Timbreza, a super mommy to a little girl, a wife to an architect, a software engineer, and a blogger on the side. My blog, ‘Musings of a Suzie’, is all about beauty products and services that I’ve tried as well as about parenting, lifestyle, personal life, and even our mother and daughter fashion hauls, too.”


2. When did you start your blog and what inspired you to create one?

“I started blogging June of 2015. I got inspired to create one after I attended BDJ’s first beauty fair. I learned a lot from that fair and I want to share it with others.”


3. Who is/are the blogger/s that you look up to?

“I have many influencers to say. When it comes to international success, I look up to Judy Travis of ‘It’s Judy’s Life’. For confidence and adventurous spirit, I am influenced by Will Dasovich. For a mother with talent and wit in beauty, I look up to Anne Clutz and for being a role model to others, I admire Janina Vela.”


4. Top 3 advice you can give to our roommates who are interested to start up a blog.

“There is no perfect time but now. If you want to start up your blog, start right away. Don’t let the fear of judgment stop you from doing what your mind, heart, and body wants. The most important of all, always be YOU. Remember that your blog mirrors your personality. So, be true.”



1. Share us your skincare routine!

“I have a different skin care routine in the morning and in the evening. For morning, I start with washing my face and applying toner and moisturizer on my face, neck, and lips. Then after that, I apply sunscreen. In the evening, I first remove my makeup with a makeup remover, wash my face, use a toner, then apply moisturizer on my face, neck, and lips. I treat my face with a facial mask every once a week while watching my favorite TV series. But most important of all, I always keep myself hydrated.”


2. How about your makeup routine?

“My everyday makeup routine starts with the application of a lip balm. Then, I apply my foundation, seal it with a powder, groom my eyebrows with my favorite eyebrow pencil,  smooth shades of nude and brown on my eyelids, give volume to my lashes with a mascara, and then,  apply contour, blush, and highlighter on my cheeks. Going back to my lips, I gently scrub the lip balm with a soft or wet tissue. Then, I apply the balm again and complete my look with my favorite lipstick.”


3. What are the top 5 beauty products (skincare and makeup) that you can’t live without?

“Facial wash, sunscreen, mascara, foundation, BB cream, and lipstick are the products that I swear, I cannot live without.”




1. When did you first find out about Sample Room?

“I learned about Sample Room in 2015 from the YouTuber/Vlogger Say Tioco Artillero.”


2. How did Sample Room help you in your journey into the world of skincare and make-up?

“When I was starting my blog, I have this goal of trying different products. Sample Room helped me in accomplishing this goal. I could give different products a try and my friends, family, and colleague go to me first for advice regarding these things. This helped me establish my forte in the blogging world.”


3. What were your best finds that you discovered through our site?

 “The best finds I had tried are from Belo Products. I got skincare products not just for me but also for my daughter. They are amazing!”


4. Do you see yourself still sampling in Sample Room in 3-5 years?

“Yes, I do! Sample Room is a very good site not just for bloggers but for other people as well.”


5.  Any advice for your fellow roommates for their sampling journey?

“Invest on being a VIP member. I have tried this perk before and yes, it is awesome and totally worth it!”


So, that’s all for today’s interview with our jolly July ROTM – Suzie Timbreza – and we do hope that you’ve learned some skin, beauty, and blog hacks from our super mama. We, in Sample Room, thank you for your unending trust to our goal and service to empower more women, Suzie! <3
