Roommate of the Month for October 2017

  Life, despite challenges and hardships, is beautiful in nature. We may not always see it in every step of our way, but there are a lot of things that we should be thankful for -- having those people who genuinely remind and encourage us that our life is worth living for, as new things and opportunities will about to uncover the least we expect them. And gladly, our Sample Room detectives have found someone who has the same life principle and spreads pills of positivity through her blog, making her deserving of the October spotlight! Dear roomies, our October Roommate of the Month is none other than the 29-year old lovely blogger and public servant – Ohms Emocling a.k.a. Ohmnibuzz!     Since she’s been an active member since 2013, we asked her some questions about her best Sample Room learnings and experiences yet..   ABOUT OHM’S BLOG 1. Tell us about you and your blog. “I am Ohms Emocling, who is frustrated in journalism and fashion world, active in blogosphere since 2012, and very passionate about travel, fashion, skin care, and beauty trends. My blog’s domain name was derived from a "phoenix bird" which means, "new life" as I believe that you may find a silver lining in every worst situation you have. You'll never know how a new pair of shoes, a new perfume, or a new shade of lipstick would influence you until I saw myself writing anything through online.”   2. When did you start your blog and what inspired you to create one? “I started my blog year 2012 at then I transferred to Wordpress on 2013, aiming to be productive after 5 PM at work to share, inform, and express my honest reviews on anything beauty related, lifestyle hack, discoveries, and personal notes in life (planning to have my own customized domain name asap!)”   3. Who are the bloggers that you look up to? “I’ve been following and reading a lot of blogs but I am inspired with Martha Sta. Barbara for her freely expressing anything that she wants to convey and Jackie Go who is dedicated to sharing her journeys as a mother, maintaining her lifestyle, and blogging at the same time. Both are proficient in their own craft and empowering women.”   4. Top 3 pieces of advice you can give to our roommates who are interested to start blogging. “Whether you’re a camera pro or not, just a little practice and some editing apps will help you. Express your sincere thoughts. Make your passion your profession. Besides, it’s free! :)”     ON HER BEAUTY ROUTINE 1. Share to us your skincare routine! “Since I am hitting my thirties, I am now much aware to do cleansing-toning-moisturizing-sun protecting scenario.”   2. How about your makeup routine? “I usually just apply BB creams with sun protection, a little blush, mascara, and a coral/peach shade of lipstick and I'm ready to go!”   3. What are the top 5 beauty products (skincare and makeup) that you can't live without? “My makeup bag consists of BB Creams, loose powder, mascara, brow liners, and a good lipstick shade. For my skin, I die for moisturizer; exfoliating scrubs/ creams; Innisfree masks, and; a night cream.”   ABOUT HER SAMPLE ROOM JOURNEY 1. When did you first found out about Sample Room? “Early 2013, I subscribed in different beauty boxes, BUT when I discovered SR, I see what they have to offer to women and to every consumer -- the privilege of trying certain products with an affordable shipping cost before purchasing it and the rest is history.”   2. How did Sample Room help you in your journey into the world of skincare and makeup? “The good thing about SR is that they're not only focused on providing local beauty products but also caters some of the international brands and up to date skin care. I discovered which skin care and beauty products might be effective on me and reviewed at the same time.”   3. What were your best finds that you discovered through our site? “Since the time I followed SR, there are a lot of products that really worked for me (and my family too!). But, my favorites are Burt’s Bees Radiance Cleanser, Olay Day and Night Cream, and Zenutrients Strawberry Lip Butter.”   4. Do you see yourself still sampling in Sample Room in 3-5 years? “Of course, because it’s literally my biggest lifesaver! Their tagline “Try Before You Buy” is really at its best!”   5. Any advice for your fellow roommates for their sampling journey? “With or without freebies, newbie or old hand in blogging, just continue what you want to do because at the end of the day it is your voice, your mind, your story, and your vision that’ll matter the most. :)”   And that ends our cozy chitchat with our inspiring Roommate of the Month for October, Ohms Emocling!
