Roommate of the Month for January 2018

Nothing is impossible with a faith that overflows, with a mind that’s positive, and with a heart that’s brave enough to jump off the cliff. Some of us may find it hard to have the courage to take new risks as we are blinded by the thought of regretting and failing in the end. Yes, these factors are inevitable but as we learn and dig more out of our life, the more we get wiser and closer to our dreams. Dreams aren’t hard to follow; you just have to believe and set your goal straight according to your passion to reach for your dreams, like what Ayesha Heart, our first #RoommateOfTheMonth for 2018, did!     We’re lucky enough to have found this lovely ‘boss babe’ as she inspires us with her start-up journey as a blogger and as an entrepreneur below:   ON AYESHA’S BLOG 1. Tell us about you and your blog “Hajimemashite! I’m Ayesha Heart. I am a half Japanese, half-Filipino. A beauty and fashion Entrepreneur with a heart. I am a GOAL DIGGER, boss babe, and CEO/Founder of Enlightenskincare and GalamorousPH. My blog is a new site that will revolutionize the way you see beauty, fashion & lifestyle. It is my candy-land; as a beauty and fashion enthusiast, I share my HONEST product reviews and thoughts whenever I discover a gem in the market. I love to dress-up; I chase my dreams in high heels, for me, every day is a fashion show and I believe that style is a way to say who I am without having to speak. I love to eat, so I also share my love on must-visit restaurants, cute coffee shops, and the like.”   2. When did you start your blog and what inspired you to create one? “Ayeshaheart.com was born on February 2016. What inspired me to create one is my passion for beauty; my hobbies include: looking at makeup, buying makeup, and applying makeup. As a beauty blogger, it is my job to test every makeup and skin care products so I could help people to have knowledge about it and decide whether to buy it or not. Lastly, my growing numbers of readers/subscribers a.k.a #AyeshaHeartfam <3, they are my family and my motivation to do what I love to do and to continue inspiring them through my blogging journey.”   3. Who are the bloggers that you look up to? “Michelle Phan is the first beauty enthusiast that I’ve followed. I love her product reviews, and beauty and skin care tips. When it comes to makeup looks, I look up to NikkieTutorials, she’s amazing! Last but not the least, Liz Lanuzo from local blogging scene, I love her in- depth reviews.”   4. Top 3 pieces of advice you can give to our roommates who are interested to start up a blog. ”1. The best time for new beginnings is NOW. Do not say you are not prepared; you don’t have this, don’t have that or will say you will study and research first before deciding on something. DO IT OR DO NOT DO IT AT ALL! 2. Do not be afraid to take risks because the more it is harder to do, the more tears you put in your goals, the more closer it will get you to your goals. 3. Always remember victory comes to those who never quit. Outside of your comfort zone is where the magic happens.”     ON HER BEAUTY ROUTINE 1. Share with us your skincare routine. “The five important steps in my skin care routine are: CLEANSE- TONE- SERUM-MOISTURIZE-SUNSCREEN. My skin care routine in the morning starts with rinsing my face with water then a toner to wipe things off. The purpose of the treatment here is to prepare the skin to better absorb all the good stuff to come. Next step is to apply my eye cream; an extra step but so worth it, I love that I can also apply it to my whole face and the result is amazing! Lastly, I apply a moisturizer with sunscreen to protect the natural moisture barrier of my skin. Yes, you read it right I don’t wash my face with a foamy facial cleanser in the morning however at night, I make sure to give extra time to thoroughly cleanse my face and balance that PH level.”   2. How about your makeup routine? “Being a boss babe, I only have so much time in the morning to apply full makeup so I just grab my Balm Primer; it makes my skin look flawless. I give more time on my eyebrows tho, because “kilay is life” :D, then a little mascara, blush and lip gloss and I’m good to go. For a glamorous look, I take time to prep my skin by using my favorite Korean skin care products then after a while, I do my eyebrows and eye makeup, apply primer and a full coverage foundation, concealer, setting powder, contour, highlight, red lipstick, and setting spray.”   3. What are the top 5 beauty products (skincare and makeup) that you can't live without? “(1) Eyebrow pencil, (2) lipstick, (3) cheek tint, (4) lip balm, and (5) hand & body lotion.”     ABOUT HER SAMPLE ROOM JOURNEY 1. When did you first find out about Sample Room? “It was 2012, where beauty subscription box is a trend. I am grateful that you brought the idea in the Philippines.”   2. How did Sample Room help you in your journey into the world of skincare and makeup? “Sample Room has a special place in my heart! I love the idea of “try before you buy”, no need to take a risk at a full-sized product that may not work for me or may give an allergic reaction as well as rely on online reviews alone and waste money on a product that might not work for me. I’m able to road-test the product I am interested in purchasing, experience the product, and decide after finishing a sample size if the product is right for me.”   3. What were your best finds that you discovered through our site? “I was so happy to receive your very first product sample - Benefit the POREfessional PRO Balm Primer; this is a total game-changer! Another best find are the Dove Oxygen and Nourishment Shampoo and Conditioner. It’s the perfect Shampoo & Conditioner for my hair. The new Vitress hair solutions products are my hair hero, I couldn’t be happier!”
