My Favorite Blog

I learned about blogging because of my uncle. He has his own travel blog, The Pinoy Explorer. His blog is my favorite blog. Because of my uncle and his blog, I dreamt to have one.  A month ago, I made one of my dreams come true, that is to put up a lifestyle blog --- The Lost Deity was born. This blog would not be made possible because of my favorite uncle… oops, my favorite blogger.


He is truly an inspiration for young bloggers like me and the blogging community. He has a travel blog highlight Filipino culture and heritage; in fact, these travels were done because of his real job in a non-government organization. This blog will be 10 years old next year and I am happy to say that I look up on to this blog.

Hoping that my blog would also be like his… not now, but maybe 5 years from now.

First Month of Accutane

First Month of Accutane




Hello there, I am here again to update you guys on my Accutane Journey.

I told you in my last update that I experience a terrible headache on the first try. Then as I take it every day, I started to get really dry lips and skin, and two ore more acne was active.  Aside from those, I haven't experienced anything else. But it was only 2 weeks of medication. Now, I finished 1 month of Accutane, 20mg a day.



Here is the Before and After picture.

BEFORE - AFTER

If you will look carefully, there's a big change. Let us compare my Before (photo on my last update: Day 15) and After (photo I took after a month of Accutane.) I don't know if I will say that it is an improvement. 

On my forehead, yes it is improving because on my Before photo I have 3 active zits and on my After photo, I can only see one but it is not red. It looks like it is becoming an acne mark. 

Look closely at my right cheek, it has gotten worst! Before photos have only 2 active zits and few acne marks. On my After photo, there is one acne but I had a lot of acne marks which you can tell that I had acne in the span of 2 weeks.

On my other cheek, this is really improving. No active zits and the acne marks are fading.

I had my check-up done 3 days ago. I have a new set of Accutane in 20mg to take every day. My doctor also gave me an Antibacterial cream for my active acne. Instead of Acne Gel, I will use the Antibacterial cream for spot treatment. Aside from the cream, I have to take Antibacterial tablets twice a day for a week. The cream and the tablet will help my acne not to become infected or as we see it, sore and red.

If there still one to three zits showing, then my doctor will increase the dosage of my Accutane.
Another meaning of this is "get ready, side effects will get worst!" So I have to be ready for that. So far, I don't experience anything aside from the side effects I have mentioned before.

It is true that this treatment will give you struggle. Like other bloggers say, it is no joke. But hey, there comes a rainbow after the rain. Til next update guys! 












Christmas Wishlist 2017


Hey there guys! We are only counting few days and it is finally Christmas! I guess that you are pretty busy now, shopping for gifts! Of course, aside from giving, I know you guys would love to receive presents! So do I, that is why I am going to share what would be on my Christmas Wishlist this 2017. I just have few items here and all of it can be found on Amazon. I did not put much because I think these are the things I would really need in the future and at the same time wanting to have. Just scroll ahead and you might want one of the items.



I want to have these Bluetooth headphones, because why not? It matches my favorite color lately and that is rose gold! Waah, if only you can hear me screaming because I want these so bad!  I am the type of person who listens to music whenever I study, so I think these headphones will be useful for me. It is perfect and beautiful AND it is really affordable!

It is time to release the hidden hippie inside me, I think it is cool to have this Lightbox in my room. What I like about this Lightbox, it comes with a total of 109 letters, numbers and symbols. I can put motivational words or display the words that inspire me. 

Are you obsessed having a notebook? Do you own notebooks and you end up not writing on it? Well, I am the type of that girl. I buy tons of notebooks, notepads, and journals, and I only want to use them as a display because it is too cute and sometimes the words on it are very motivational and inspirational. So this one would be perfect to put on my desk and motivate me to work like a boss.

If someone will give me a robe this Christmas, it will be my very first robe. No kidding! I am not a robe person, but I think it is the time to change that this coming new year. To receive a robe this year is a perfect timing. 

The first time I saw this on Amazon, ohhh God! I want it... and I need it. We don't have winter here in the Philippines but there are places here that become colder in the month of January to February, for example, in the city of Baguio, the temperature drops at 5-7 degrees. And starting January of 2018, I will be staying in Baguio City for good! Having this one will help me to stay warm.



Just like any other girl, I love shoes and any kind of shoes. I already have black boots so I guess, it is time to have a different color? 

7.  Unicorn Adult Onesie $23.99
I have told you that I will be staying in Baguio City with a colder weather. Having a onesie will make my life cozy. Ohhh that rhymed. But yeah, I wanna snuggle with my onesie.

These highlighters are perfect because there will be tons of readings this coming January! I will tell you soon why. But first, I need these pretty highlighters!

Recently, I discovered the beauty of not washing hair every day. Yes, my locks are definitely looking good on day 2 or 3 of not washing it, but I hate the feeling of having an oily scalp. I heard this brand is good and I want to try it.
