JTomas Solutions No Hair Wax Kit Remover

This entry has been in my draft for so long. I rarely update this beauty blog because I am focusing on my lifestyle blog. I bought this product last year. I discovered this brand through Cosmopolitan Philippines Magazine Beauty issue for 2013. I hope my memory is right. 

I forgot how much it is. As far as I remember, it is around 300 or above. 

My first ever purchased D-I-Y hair wax removal. As of now, I need to go  to a hair waxing salon for my underarm hair removal. I might buy another JTomas No hair wax kit for my summer need. You save some time and money if you have your own hair wax removal product because:

1. Don't need to wait for your turn in the salon.
2. You can do hair wax removal with every parts of the body that needs waxing. If you go to a salon, there is different charges in every services ---depending on what part of the body.
3. You can share it with a friend or any of your siblings. Just make sure that person will clean the spatula and sensitive with your feeling after using your shared item. Again, make sure he/she will take care of the product and bring it back clean after use.

New Way of Whitening with Thiocell

When I was asked by a friend to be a substitute or proxy for this event. I kind of said yes half-heart. One, because I think I was not yet ready to try glutathione. Secondly, I was thinking of my job hunt. Honestly, I got interested to go because of the place where the launched was held.

Let me introduce to you this bottle called Thiocell. But first cover story of the event.

Quote: Work

Work is a way of morphing storms into sunlight. Work is a way of cleaning up a mess, of solving a problem.

There's a fulfilling purity in that we're able to make something more beautiful and coherent at day's end. But great work --- much like love --- will never emanate from fear or hollowness of heart, just as no dreams or grand plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living in the now. 

Align yourself with owners of profound hearts and who live in the moment and every aspect of your work will beam effortlessly like glorious rays from the sun.

Healthy Skin Magazine Beauty Bloggers Gathering at Stacy's BGC. Beauty In Full Bloom.

Beauty In Full Bloom Beauty 101 Blogger Party at Stacy's restaurant, Rizal Drive BGC that happened last November 21, 2015. I actually signed up to be part of the event via U-Blog Facebook group. I came an hour and thirty minutes late. Good thing they haven't started. 

 When it comes to attending events or gathering you have to make sure that you know some who will go too. It is hard to be alone especially If you don't have the personality of introducing yourself first to the person beside you.

November 2014. A Year Ago.

How time flies! It has been a year ago since my sister tied the knot with her eight-years boyfriend then and now husband. I didn't even know that it was that long na pala. I only learned about it during the wedding LOLLLOL!!!
Univers Perfume by Bench. Know more about it here. Zenutrients Lip Balm. Customized Handbag for the wedding entourage. 
Cake and Flower Bouquet. Obviously, they were not real flowers. 
I really like my makeup during that day. I hope to do the repeat version of that makeup soon. Happy anniversary Ate Chel and Kuya Vlad. <3

Wacoal Shopping Experience

As part of the perks of being an attendee of the Wacoal sports bra launched, we were given gift certificates for us to spend shopping the items that we like from their brand. Some of my co-attendees got worth of 5K gcs while others got worth of 2500 gcs. Okay, that's no longer an issue. We moved on. I was one of those who got  worth of 2500 gift certificate.
It was not my first time in their head office. A few years back, I tried to apply in their office. Unfortunately, I didn't get the position. Above photo shows the lounge area for guest visitors. Can you spot Sarah Meier?

Wacoal Sports Bra Media Launch at The City Club Alphaland.

Super duper late post. It is not easy to update three blogs. I have posted the press release here anyway. First time to be at The City Club although I always passed by the Alphaland building when I was on a training for career back in June. They served us Japanese cuisine for lunch. 





















This event was held last September 29. The host was Cassie Umali.



The program started while I just finished my food and had my measurement taken for my bra fit. 

Presenting the sports bra by Wacoal, Wacoal Philippines Marketing Manager, Ms. Elmira Cadungog. 


We were directed outside of the restaurant to watch a presentation dance by Kris-Belle Mamangun of Ballet Manila. Sorry no picture. After that,  we headed to the higher floor level of the building for different activities


I tried the bamboo or Chinese wand for the first together with these ladies. Truly, it is a good exercise to slow down and for body posture.  





The next activity that I tried was the digital or virtual golf. Watch my first Virtual Golf experience here and also here.





Thank you Wacoal Philippines for this fun-filled afternoon treat. 

Keep up with Wacoal Philippines via Social Media:
Wacoal on Instagram   and    Wacoal PH Facebook Page

Special thanks to Miss Monica.

If only...

I went to an event this morning in Bonifacio High Street. Football is the main activity of the said event. It was my second time to attend a football related event. I saw two young girls with their football player boyfriends. I don't want to sound mean ... but for me if you'll only look at the face value of these two girls... fellow Filipinos will say they not pretty. One of the girls has a lot of social media followers because of her talent...maybe? She's good with her thing. But she has a lot of bashers too. You can see some nasty comments on her page like "Tapon na ulo. Hipon... blah blah blah". 

Change topic. The main heart of this entry is how much regret I feel following my former church customs or culture. I got a lot of warnings from my mother to pull myself out of that institution. So many things I should've explored by the age of 19 going 20. If I focus on working and not finishing my college course, I should've a lot of material investment by now. I was so stubborn. There are churches that fit every personality. Looking back at the old photos... I regret not investing with fashionable clothes. I should have started dating. I should have been to different places out of .Luzon Island. So many to mentions.

He's a photographer. Needless to say I'm attracted to him. hihi. So?.. tambay muna ko SM Makati saglit just to looked at him around the area where he was working that day. It was a beauty event where he was working with his lenses. I managed to took a video of him and took few pictures. LOL. I left around 3 pm because I have to meet Arnel of AB Comm that day. O tas, after I got my stuff from Arnel in Net One tambay ulit... this time BHS Krispy Kreme.

Current Fave: Setting Good Mood Sound-trip. Hold My Hand by Jess Glyne

"Hold My Hand"


Standing in a crowded room and I can't see your face
Put your arms around me, tell me everything's OK
In my mind, I'm running round a cold and empty space
Just put your arms around me, tell me everything's OK

[Pre-Chorus:]
Break my bones but you won't see me fall, oh
The rising tide will rise against them all, oh

[Chorus:]
Darling, hold my hand
Oh, won't you hold my hand?
'Cause I don't wanna walk on my own anymore
Won't you understand? 'Cause I don't wanna walk alone
I'm ready for this, there's no denying
I'm ready for this, you stop me falling
I'm ready for this, I need you all in
I'm ready for this, so darling, hold my hand

Soul is like a melting pot when you're not next to me
Tell me that you've got me and you're never gonna leave
Tryna find a moment where I can find release
Please tell me that you've got me and you're never gonna leave

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

Don't wanna know
That feeling when I'm all alone
So please don't make me wait, 'cause I don't wanna break
And I don't wanna fall
When you're next to me
Can tell I'm not afraid to be
That you don't make me wait, and never let me break
You never let me fall

[Chorus]

I like upbeat songs. Songs that make me wanna bust some moves :)

Kiehl's Samples




Second time to have some samples from Kiehl's last June. The first time I got some samples from Kiehl's was in 2013. I had to cut out a coupon from my BDJ Planner and claimed it in their Greenbelt branch. Kiehl's products are really light on the face when you put it on. A bit pricey though but you'll expect great results after. Read more about my consultation experienced here.

I'd like to have the Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate bottle soon.

Best Beautiful with Olay and Belle De Jour Power Planner




I got this package delivery on Monday, August 24, It was a "make my day kind of surprise" that happened. I answered the survey which Belle de Jour sent to me via email. I think I was one of the first batch who received the package. I like the smell of the Olay deep moisture with honey body wash. We are Olay loyal users at home when it comes to their facial creams. My Mama used the Olay day cream in this package right away when she saw this. She is currently using the Olay Total effects BB Creme. Thank you so much Belle de Jour and Olay Philippines for this gift.

Window shopping

After I came from a blogger's event in Marikina, I went to SM Aura and Market! Market! to look for a blouse with collar.  I noticed that most blouses don't have collars. I think sewers or designers of these label brands don't really think of designing blouses or tops with collars.

Quotes

Nobody knows what you want except you. And nobody will be as sorry as you if  you don't get it.


When it comes to making a big change in your life, you have to want it more than you fear it.


Following your intuition means doing what feels right, even if it doesn't look or sound right to others so you won't have to spend the rest of your life wondering what could have been.

Letters To The Future Film

This post has been on my draft for so long. It was my first time to watch in U-VIEW, Fully Booked. I was so interested to watch this document film when I saw an instagram post on younstarphils IG account.
Letters to the Future. I got so curious if it was really a serious film or has a story. 
What you want to be when you were a kid?
What's it like to fall in love in 2014?
How do you define success?


People in this film mostly are in their 20s, 30s to 40s ... I knew some familiar faces.



Some got plans but when they stepped in the target age, they realize that they haven't accomplished or achieved yet their goal. I'm am 26 of age now. I can relate to those people in the freelance industry that people in the corporate world think that we are under them. Reality bites.

A lovely view going to AFPCES.
