Calm Down! LANEIGE Fresh Calming Line is Here!

LANEIGE Fresh Calming set

        I'm happy to say that I think I finally found the ONE. Well, the FOUR, actually. Meet my daytime warriors! The LANEIGE Fresh Calming Set! And it's already available in LANEIGE stores in the Philippines!

        Aside from the fact that I wanted to buy this set because of the Lee Sung Kyung Fan Girl in me (She's the endorser for this line), I was particularly interested to try this because this line was made for oily to combination skin. Which is exactly my skin type. I've always thought I had oily skin until I realized that only my T-zone was oily. My cheeks are always dry. Forget the fact that the original market for this line is for 20-year-olds. Feeling bata ako bakit ba? And hell, it works perfectly for me! Seriously! 찐자!!!

Dove and Mommy Mundo's #ConfidentGirl Forum is an Eye-Opener!

        Parenting is hard. Obviously. You think parenting will become easier as they grow up because we don't have to assist them in small tasks like breastfeeding, or giving them milk in the wee hours, taking a shower, brushing their teeth, feeding them, etc. But the challenges become different. As I can imagine, it becomes emotionally harder. Because then we have to make sure our child grows up in a positive environment and we want to make sure that they'll be okay on their own when we're not with them.

        A big factor in growing up with confidence is having good self-esteem. Now inside your household, there's no problem. Because we're always there to guide them. But it's a different story when they leave the house as they become exposed to other people's way of thinking. That's why as early as now, it's best to have that "talk" with them and prepare them for the world. This is precisely why I'm glad I was able to join the first #ConfidentGirl Forum with Dove and Mommy Mundo.

For All Fa-SHOE-nistas!

Via Venetto

        A true fashionista is not one who just follows each and every trend. A real fashionista is one who wears a piece with full confidence. One who makes the dress or the accessory or the shoe work for you, and not the other way around. A real fashionista can wear anything from runway looks, or something from her grandmother's baul.  As long as you can work it, it's fashion!

        Filipina fashionistas have a lot of choices when it comes to clothes and accessories. You can find tons of amazing clothing, shoes, and accessories at the many amazing malls we have now, or at tiangge areas, or even at weekend markets. You'll be surprised at the variety of choices you will see.

        Needless to say, completing a fashionista look is a head-to-toe endeavor, with signature shoes as a style staple.That is where Filipino fashion icon Via Venetto truly shines.

My 10-Step LANEIGE Skin Care

          It’s crazy, but this all started because of the Korean drama series Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo. I came to love the character and the actress so much (Lee Sung Kyung), and so when I saw that she was an official endorser of Laneige, I became interested in trying the famous Korean skin care brand. I knew it was a bit steep, but at that time I was earning okay, and I thought that it was pricey for a reason. I heard nothing but good things about Laneige especially coming from Rowena of the famous blog Animetric, who has been a long time Laneige user. She has excellent skin so I thought, it must really be effective!

          So there, I started with the 2 products that I saw on Weightlifting Fairy (see my post here), and then afterwards, each time I pass by a Laneige store, I felt like a kid in a candy store already.

        In this post, I will show you the first Laneige set I collected so I could follow the 10-step Korean skin care regimen.

The Little Nebulizer That Could! The Omron CompAir Nebulizer System NE-C801!

        I remember there was a time when my little Rainbow was down with a cough, and for some reason it took a while before it really went away. And so my sister in law told me that it would be wise to invest in a nebulizer because it’s a good way to relieve little kids from annoying colds and coughs (of course with the doctor’s consent). I cannot also just ignore the fact that that both sides of our families have history of asthma. Luckily though Richie and I both had never had asthma, and even more luckily, so does Rain. (Knock on wood so as not to jinx it).

        So of course, that was months ago. And up until now I haven’t bought any nebulizer yet for the house. (Best mom award! Hahaha!) But because I was recently introduced to Omron, I now know which nebulizer to get! It’s small, it’s compact, and it only produces a soft wheezing type of sound that’s almost soothing (to me at least).

Omron Nebulizer NE-C801

        The CompAir Nebulizer System NE - C801 is this tiny nebulizer made by Omron Healthcare. They developed this product to make it easier to manage not just asthma, but also for chronic bronchitis, allergic rhinitis, and other respiratory disorders.

Marian Rivera-Dantes is the Perfect Endorser for Snow Crystal White Tomato

        I've always admired Marian Rivera-Dantes' beauty. She's got that delicate beauty and petite body that makes her the ideal beauty goal of many. And I know we can all agree that her career as an actress did not come about just because of her looks. She is really a talented versatile actress that can easily do drama to action to comedy in a snap.  From acting , to hosting, and now to being a wife and a mother, she has become one of the Philippines' most admired actress.

        But aside for her remarkable beauty and talent, more importantly, is her undeniable confidence that makes her even more exquisite. And this is precisely why Vida Nutriscience believed that Marian Rivera-Dantes would be the perfect endorser for Snow's new product: Snow Crystal White Tomato. It's the new gold standard in whitening and anti-aging.

Destination: ISDAAN Floating Restaurant!!!

Isdaan Floating Restaurant

        We've been traveling to the north every summer ever since I could remember. My family's province is in Bangued, Abra, then we later transfered to San Fernando La Union. And before all the EXes were built (SCTEX, TPLEX), I remember always passing by this restaurant in Tarlac with huge statues out front and have always wanted to try it. But we always used to ride the public bus so we couldn't really stop over. But as soon as we were already using our own car, we did finally get to go and I remember being in awe at how fun the whole place was. Filled with lagoons and huge amazing statues. it kinda made you feel like you were in a theme park!

        Years later, we came back. This time, in their Nueva Ecija branch. And it was as fun as I remembered. In fact it was even more fun this time because Rain is already with us! Check out my quick video of our fun trip to Isdaan!
