Let Your Hair Down

It's been said that starting the (Chinese) Lunar New Year with a new haircut brings good luck; Last week, I went to Bench Fix to get a trim for my ends and a fringe! This was perfect because I didn’t want to lose the length of my hair, but it’s still quite a transformation from my previous hairstyle.  I’ll have it colored soon enough for the completion of this new look!

Since we’re talking about hair, here are a few products that I’d like to share that’ll help you keep your locks healthy and shiny.
  • Kerastase Nutritive Oleo-Relax Leave-In - This leave-in is just a component of a 3-step regimen from Kerastase. It works best all together but this also works wonders even by itself. Infused with nourishing ingredients, it controls volume and provides smoothness and long-lasting frizz protection –leaves hair glossy and smooth.

Cebu Getaway

Hi everyone!!! I'll be dedicating this entry to my first ever trip to Cebu! Finally, I was able to experience the Sinulog Festival Cebuanos and Manila people alike seem to be raving about. All I can say is, you got to see it to believe it! I got so much more than what I expected out of this trip and if I were to sum up my entire experience there into just one word, it would definitely be... epic! :)

*I'll be posting photos I got from Acarie and Kaye, but mostly Acarie who brought three cameras with her on this trip! At one point she even asked me what camera would I want her to use in taking my photo hahaha! How convenient when your friend brings a digicam, DLSR, and lomo cam. :)) Resolutions may vary though... but anyway credits to them!

Day 1- Acarie and I left Manila on January 14, 7:45 in the morning and we arrived in Cebu at around 9. Our Cebuano friends, Kaye and Vanz came to fetch us from the airport and we went straight for Nalusuan Island in Mactan.
After a 30-minute (or so) boat ride, we had our much awaited time on the beach.

Ring out the old, Ring in the NEW!

This time of the year definitely makes you want a fresh, new start. To some, it may equate to a change of perspective, a shift in career, a wardrobe modification, or maybe even a makeover. This 2012, for whatever way you choose to start the new year, may it be old habits you want gone, or new things you plan to take on, the old must go before we can welcome the new. Same goes with your makeup kit!

Now is the perfect time to share with you this Japanese makeup line that recently made its debut in the Philippines, Koh Gen Do. In this post you will read about their primer, concealer, foundations, and makeup remover. Koh Gen Do generally describes their makeup as "high definition" as it is fit for long hours yet natural, fresh and "feels wonderful to wear daily". Their philosophy of 25 years is to create makeup inspired by skincare; free of fragrance, composite pigments and mineral oil that with continuous usage of their products, the skin’s health will be enhanced from within. 
  • Maifanshi Makeup Color Base in Pearl White – I use it as a primer for the face, on areas in need of brightening like the eyes. It’s a great cream base that gives makeup long-lasting wear, gives an illuminating effect as it minimizes the pores, and protects the skin from the UV rays with an SPF 16 PA++. All that in one little tube!

Christmas in Baguio

Here's a recap of our trip last December 23-25. We arrived at 6:30 in the morning, in time for breakfast. It being my first time, I was so amused by the sights, people, ukay-ukay, food, and of course, the weather! 

Because Baguio is much known for their strawberries, the moment we saw taho vendors selling strawberry-flavored taho, we simply had to try it!
Here's our first taste of strawberry taho! It even has actual strawberries inside, so yummy!  

We had the rest of our breakfast at Cottage Gi's before settling in at the Scarborough Lodge.

We also went to the BenCab Museum, home of the works of National Artist of the Philippines in the field of Visual Arts, Ben Cabrera and as well as other artists' galleries. 

After going around the museum and viewing the different galleries, we went to Café Sabel, located just below the museum. We were lucky enough to meet BenCab himself in his café.
