I love going to trade fairs! Beauty fairs are super exciting for me solely because of this blog but because I'm naturally maarte. It's nice to be comfortable in your element; twice as nice to have your element suit you. :)

A familiar bazaar find would be Milea. It's a local all-organic brand known for their wide-range of organic soaps and mineral make-up. Over summer's scorching days, I have tried out their best of bests and here are my two cents about some of their cleansers which I found most interesting...

Cleanliness as they say is next to Godliness. :p

Foaming Feminine Wash
Yep, I would like to emphasize foaming. :)
What I love about Milea's all-natural feminine wash is it's exciting format. Check out how liquid it is (photo below).

Despite it's honest-to-goodness almost-"just water" format, when you pump the product out of the bottle, it instantly turns out foamy! It's delightful because chemical-free yet sudsy products are a mystery to me! I am guessing it derives its bubbles through the packaging's unique design (similar to whipping cream, the pump design airs out the liquid product hence dispences a bubbly foam).


I love it becaue it's the best of all worlds. It's chemical-free, it's gentle, it's liquid yet it's sudsy. If you're tired of using feminine wash that are too fluid you feel like you're not really cleaned enough, or tired of feminine care that is in a boring gel formulation, then Milea's feminine wash will excite your every shower. :)

Clean Rinse

Aminin niyo, sobrang tag-tuyot lang last April-May!

I would recommend this product when there is no soap or water for rinsing! haha Damn, last summer was a struggle for me! I look forward to lengthy showers this cold June-July!


Although using Clean Rinse will never be as potent as staying clean by taking a decent shower, desperate times call for desperate measures. This product saved me from sleeping feeling icky. With my new beloved Nivea Baby Naturals wet wipes, Clean Rinse provides me the right amount of clean to feel comfortable enough during our tag-tuyot moments. (PS. Wala bang tubig sa inyo? Kasi sa amin, pahirapan ang tubig nung summer!)

All Organic Soap
They don't melt away!
Normally, I fear organic soaps because they tend to be too soft and are easily dissolved with water. Eh, I want value for money. If a soap can't last long enough, it gets difficult finding value for money in that.

What I found most amazing about Milea;s organic bars is their longstanding formulation. They are not as sudsy as chemical-laden soaps (because they're organic, doh) but they stay long enough in the shower for me to find value in buying them.

I love how they also don't result to a "squeaky clean" feeling. Then I know moisture is locked unto my skin... sans lotion! :)
Coffee Orange Body Scrub
This skin nourishing body scrub is the most delicious thing that ever happened to a coffee scrub!
If you've been reading my blog for quite a time now, then you have probably heard of my DIY Coffee Scrub sessions. . . now I want to talk about an authentic coffee scrub. Well, not that my DIY Coffee Scrubs aren't authentic... hehe but you know what I mean. Here's a commercially manufactured variant! :)

It looks like shit. Frankly speaking, it looks like shit! (photo below)

but shitty as it may seem, this coffee scrub smells soo yummy! It's funny because despite it being a coffee scrub, it smells like chocolate! I looked through the ingredients and nowehere did I find yummy chocolate however my olfactory system keeps on telling me there's tsokolate in the shower everytime I use this baby. Wow, I used the tub in three weeks max! I used it almost everyday! It really exfoliates well and is a great primer to an intensive oil/moisturizing session before sleep :)

The Coffee in it's formula sloughs away dry skin and stimulates blood circulation (hence minimize visible chicken skin); while the Orange in its formula brightens the skin leaving it looking more radiant after just one shower. :)

If you would go ahead and try this Coffee Scrub, I would challenge you not to try taste it. hehe

There you go, now if you're inspired to take on nature's clean, you don't have to wait for a bazaar to happen. Visit http://www.milea.ph/ to know more of their products. :)

Diliman Voice staff phot-op with Ma'am Chit Estella right after publication of our first and only issue. (It was a class project.) Photo is unfortunately half uploaded (grabbed it from my friend Anjo's blog) but incomplete as the image is, I guess the memories that solidified friendships and dreams in the production of that first and last issue will always mean more than just a required elective for us students who will always miss our MorningCHITChats.
That's me in yellow. I stand beside Anjo. Hi Anjo, thank you for sending me a link to your blog. I cried while reading your post. :(
There are ways to be remembered but only a few are gifted with the means to do so without their consent, or intention even. These people will always be the brightest stars in the cosmos. They may not be part of a constellation, but they would shine as a world of their own.

I would have to say that I am a proud former student of the late yet very epic journalist Chit Estella (aka Lourdes Simbulan to her students). Funny that it is only now that I would even realize that I have been calling her by different names without realizing it. I'm amazed by how she gracefully responds to both titles as if all great names can match her stature. I call her Ma'am Chit. I call her Ma'am Simbulan. Ahora, profa es una estella para me. Tomorrow she will be a fountain of hope.


Funny how considering we never really got to well... CHIT-Chat, here I am, tearfully blogging for the love of Ma'am Chit, for the third time! (please read this link for the second wave).

It's so difficult to put into words the feeling of losing someone who cast light upon you while you start the foundation of your future; especially if that someone is the someone who made you realize the heaviness of the red pen for the first time. Cliche as it may sound, words will never be enough, so I send her my thoughts. I send her my spirit. To the nicest professor, amiable, almost always late in class, but strikingly filled with wisdom and charm. Thank you. Thank you for making a difference. Thank you for making this forgetful person remember something so strongly, it's heavy.

From Ma'am Chit's class:

When It’s Rain, It’s Four

We’ ve been friends for a long time ago. We come from the same alma mother. Actually, our paths crossed one time on another. But it’s only now that I gave him a second look. I realized that beauty is in the eyes. The pulpbits of my heart went fast, really fast. Cute pala siya. And then, he came over with me.


He said, “I hope you don’t mine. Can I get your number?”


Nag-worry ako. What if he doesn’t give it back? He explained naman na it’s so we could keep intact daw. Sabi ko, “Connect me if i’m wrong but are you asking me ouch?”


“The!?!!??”. .. ang sarcastic na sagot nya. Aba! The verb! Parang siya pa ang galit! Persona ingrata!!! Ang kapal niya! I cried buckles of tears.


Na-guilty yata siya. Sabi niya, isipin mo na lang na this is a blessing in the sky. Irregardless daw of his feelings, we should go ouch na rin. Now, we’re so in love. Mute and epidemic na ang past. Thanks God we swallowed our fried. Kasi, I’m 33 na and I’m running our time.


After 2 weeks, he plopped the question. “Will you marriage me?”


I’m in a state of shocked. Kasi mantakin mo, when it rains, it’s four! This is true good to be true. So siyempre, I said yes. Love is a many splendor.


Pero nung inaayos ko na ang aming kasal, everything swell to pieces.


Nag-di-dinner kami noon nang biglang sa harap ng aming table, may babaeng humirit ng, “Well, well, well. Look do we have here.”


What the fuss! The nerd ng babaeng yon! She said they were still on. So I told her, whatever is that, cut me some slacks!


I didn’t want this to get our hand kaya I had to sip it in the bud. She accused me of steeling her boyfriend. As is!!! I don’t want to portrait the role of the other woman. Gosh, tell me to the marines! I told her, “please, mine you own business!”


Who would believe her anyway? Dahil it’s not my problem anymore but her problem anymore, tumigil narin siya ng panggugulo. Everything is coming up daisies. I’m so happy.


Even my boyfriend said liketwice. He’s so supportive. Sabi niya, “Look at is this way. She’s our of our lives.”


Kaya advise ko sa inyo—take the risk. You can never can tell. Just turn the bridge when you get there. Life is shorts. If you make a mistake, we’ll just pray for the internal and external repose of your soul. I second emotion.


Thank you.

You would know a lot about one person by checking out the contents of his her bag... let's see.

Besides the usual wallet and cellphone, I almost always have a camera, a kikay kit (sometimes two!), a planner/notebook, choice of pens (sign pens, gel pens), a book, tissue. What does that say?

It's scarlet red inside my limited edition Manhattan Portage Messenger Bag, woot.

Because I normally bring my house when I leave the house, kidding aside, I get so choosy when it comes to bags. Frankly, I would over-use a bag if it serves me well... can't care much about how bad its condition is as long as its functional, I'm good. I do commute and walk a lot (must be a habit I wouldn't wish to grow out of) and to enjoy the sometimes crowded, sometimes flooded, sometimes pleasant, but always interesting streets of our humble third world country, I always make sure I am one: safe (I said enjoy. My definition of enjoy doesn't include getting in harm's way) and two: comfortable.

Let's face it, it's better to gear up right when facing the twists and turns of street life so I'm glad I got to finally trade in my Lacoste Carry-all bag (which is extremely heavy even when empty by the way!) with an OC-friendly messenger bag! :) My first of many MP bags, the very limited edition (and by limited, I mean 1,000 pieces worldwide!) 55-DSL Messenger Bag. Got it as a gift from PRC as they wanted me to really experience what it's like to use a Manhattan Portage

It's so pogiii.
Right after I got my hands on this baby, I did the first logical thing I thought was appropriate to measure up with the exhiliration I got after you know, claiming one of the 1,000 pieces of 55DSL MP bag created... I talked to my long-time-no-chitchat friend who's residing at NYC.

Out with the old bag... in with the new!
Yeah, out with the old and in with the New... as in New York!

NY looks beautiful even as a silhouette!
A skyline my friend took (phone capture). I have no idea where in NYC my friend Micah was at the time she took this photo, but I asked an authentic NY captured photo from her (so random, and appropriate) and although she sent me more after this, there's just something about this skyline that makes me feel so, alive.
I asked my friend if she knows about MP and she shared with me her first impressions of MP (how she thought it was like an exclusive to a company, type of bag) because of the logo which is a skyline (may I repeat that the photo embedded above is appropriate? :p) Me, on the hand, first noticed MP for its vibrant colors! When I saw pictures of it, it was making me plan things I shouldn't, aka. shop. Seeing the bags in the flesh, ooh I fell hard for the sleek black overlooking shadow type of an MP. The 55DSL is so curious to me. My eyes were glued at first sight.
So glad I went home with it!

The 55DSL is so much smaller than the typical Kumiko-bag but I guess it disciplined my over-hyped-up back-packing habits. My bag's still heavy but at least o'er necessary things only (as I can't fit my "house" in my MP hehe) But with its pockets, I have been consistently trained to be organized from the inside... exactly what I needed :)

Now I want you to feel the same excitement I felt. Would you like to win an MP bag of your own?

Would you create a fake identity just to get someone you like/love return you the affection?

This book caught my eye because of the cover (I love novels with nsexy naked ladies posing sexily on the cover hehe). I got it for only P40 at Book Sale!!

If you've read the Griffin and Sabine (by Nick Bantock) series, and liked it, then I'm pretty sure you would like this book too... but not as much. Especially because compared to astounding artwork that comes with Bantock's series, Priority would only fall far behind. However, the plot and theme of it all (a sneak to a private "romantic" correspondence") is the same. So at least for that reason, a Bantock fan won't be able to resist consuming Priority's poetic letters.

There's an interesting twist at the very end of this book. I believe this is the book my professor back in College (Sir Vlad Gonzales) referred to during one of our lectures--I think that because the story that unravelled is sooo familiar. So nice I found it!

Try to find it!

Please comment. According to the book: "To respond is an act of love." :)

I bought Judy Reene Singer's Still Life with Elephant for two reasons:

1. My favorite book is Still Life with Woodpecker (it is by Tom Robbins).


2. It's entitled Still Life with Elephant.

Suffice it to say, I couldn't care less about what it's about, though it is quite interesting. Nonetheless, it is surprising to admit that upon opening up the pages of Singer's novel, I couldn't put it down. It is the perfect leisurely read I was looking for one stressed out summer evening. I started consuming its chapters and at the end of the book I found myself satisfied with what the novel fed me (probably the jelly dough nuts).

"There are losses that etch themselves forever, deep into your soul, and losses that can be replaced. Peace of mind comes when you learn to tell the two apart."

I really like how the cheating husband (yes! there's a cheating husband involved) was so pathetic! I don't know. I think cheating is low... especially if you cheat and you're unable to face the losses involved with it. The plot even reminded me of an episode from a local radio station I am fond of tuning in to (Good Times with Mo at Magic 89.9) where the DJs discussed how one of the reasons why Philippine society's cancer of a behavior (referring to cheating men) is persisting lies in its source of power: the Filipina's forgiving nature.

I know it's pretty much far-off from the events that happened in the book but I really appreciate how the novel gave me reason to contemplate on that local issue. Instead of simply being comic, the book became relevant. That's one huge plus for me!

Still Life with Elephant is nothing like my favorite book but the sarcasm and the closure the novel offered is just and admirable. To me, it's like The Break Up meets Eat Pray Love. Still Life with Elephant has this certain "coolness" hidden neath its funny lines that would tickle your fancy, trust me.

"Happiness is a decision."

PS. I love how the author dedicated her novel like so: "this book is dedicated to my heart and my soul." Aww shucks..

Still Life with Elephant (Php 964) is available at Fully Booked.

In life, there would be countless things we'd find beautiful. To begin with, God filled this world with so much beautiful looking and beautiful hearted people. In addition to that, the world itself is beautiful: from daybreak to sunset. However, before you go about savouring the world's beauty, I figured, I should first encourage you to look at the mirror and be at awe.

No, this is not for vanity's sake. I just think everything we love about the world would be magnified if we nurture our self-love.

To me, there are three very Beautiful Things that I just find so irresistable about myself, especially when I put myself out there, smack at the center of a test (of faith). The following are my integrity, patience and kindess.

Before my favorite season started, I figured it would be best to launch a Beauty Campaign so I can really make this season count. In partnership with an empowered brand, Maybelline Philippines gave me full support so as you know it, we had the Bare and Beautiful campaign going on from April til few days of May.

Throughout the campaign I encountered various personalities, some of which helped strengthen my beliefs and clarify my visions; some of which left me repulsed. Frankly speaking, it's a joy ride I suppose and in this little whirlwind of emotions I hope my efforts will not be in vain. I know this has been quite an introduction but let me share with you the good news, I will stop with the backgrounder and follow through with what this whole Beauty Campaign is all about. :)

Beauty is something a lot of people take for granted--sometimes even judge. If you think only the foul receives judgments, think again. Beauty suffers it more even as it is always expected to be, well, beautiful. When I started this blog, I had only one thing in mind: To share my mind, basically. I wanted to do that because I think I have a beautiful mind (and heart).

Without sounding egoistic, I think because of that I am beautiful. These, I want to share. I know I have the words and the character and the guts and the fearlessness to put myself out in the open, so I shared. It's been a year and a half (I started this blog January 2010) and I'm really glad that so far, so beautiful. We're still chasing beautiful things and I think each day, as we go through this chase, we capture the beauty of all the ideal things we want to be and form our own definitions of "beauty".

To me, there are currently three things that I would bet my heart on, are keys to living (or leading) a beautiful life. As I announce the winners of my Bare and Beautiful campaign, let me also share with you these three things:


1. Integrity - Dreams are beautiful things. We dream them because we want them, and normally we want them because they're beautiful! It's a beautiful circle which we hope to roll out as we go through each day; however, the path in making these dreams come true can either be an adventure worth painting or shamefully, a skeleton in ones closet.

Because of this, I am glad to put on top of my Beautiful ThingsList the word integrity. Beyond being a word which rhymes with simplicity, integrity to me is the core of beauty. To me, for one thing to be beautiful, it has to have a heart that beats integrity to its veins. There's no beauty in a lie. In fact, I believe, dreams all come true. Those that don't are those lured to fall off from integrity's security-challenged embrace.

As I give importance to integrity, I would like to point out that as much as I would like to correct those who try to take advantage of my generosity, I hope you find it in your heart to preserve what's left of your integrity. Please don't cheat. Wanting something so much is normal. Submitting to the temptation of breaking one's innate conscience is never going to be worth anything, no matter how much you want it. Remember: to enjoy life's prizes, you have to be deserving first.


2. Patience - When they said patience is a virtue, 'they' knew what they're talking about. Simply put, if you're feeling uneasy, know that all flowers start as a stem. All flowers bloom gradually. Beauty is a learning process. You are born beautiful, yes, but to live beautifully is a learning process. Take a class. Be patient and allow life to feed you with its flavors, from its most bitter corners to its sweetest nectarines.

I used to push myself to do this and that and this then that... so on so forth. Normally, it starts clear and focused to me but as the processes overlap, sometimes, the supposed beautiful thing ends up looking like a mess. Queer, maybe that's where the term 'beautiful mess' was coined, I don't know. But going back to my point, I used to not know what day it is because I'm too busy catching up with myself. Now, I take time to breathe. Now I give myself the patience I deserve which is great.... especially if you know you also deserve to not receive waste (Haste makes waste.)
3. Kindness - Beautiful is good. To develop a kind heart is to be a step closer to glory.

Glory is beautiful. Kind is most beautiful.

Now it's time to share with you quick tips on how to look the part. Look kind, feel kind, act kind!
Photobucket
To look fresh and lovingly kind, achieve clear skin using Maybelline Philippines BB Cream. It's great used on a clean surface-slash-properly cleanses/toned/moisturized face. As a skin-care cosmetic itself,, Maybelline BB Cream will also protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays... while helping you achieve clear-looking, soft-to-the touch supple skin.


Photobucket
Use a stippling brush when applying the BB Cream.
Through out the day, have your trusted powder brush and Maybelline Clear Smooth Minerals foundation in hand! Remember: there's no glory in a glossy face.

Shine like a star and dot on some shimmering eyeshadow at the outer corner of your eye. Maybelline Hyper Diamonds eyeshadow palette have super-sharged diamond glitters that are perfect for the job above!
Now that I have shared with you all that, allow me to celebrate with you YOUR beauty!

Sunday, May 15, 2011


Part of what makes your skin beautiful and young looking is your dedication in healing it. Contrary to what a lot of people think, beautiful skin DOESN'T end in protection. Sure proper skin protection keeps skin problems to the minimum but let's face the truth... We are all vulnerable. Protection can only do as much.

This is why I have recently taken into deep conscious consideration the importance of intensively caring for my skin before sleeping at night.

Photobucket
For an invisible and non-greasy sun protection even after your beachin' days, use Nivea Sun's SPF 30 invisible spray-on. It goes as light as water (See next photo for an on-skin application of the product)
I emphasize the time because during the day, I normally focus on sun protection and light moisturization for my face and body to avoid any discomfort throughout the day; but at night, when skin care comes to its peak performance and effectivity, I play hardball.

Photobucket
Invisible sun protection made possible by Nivea Sun's easy-to-dispense SPF: just spritz on target areas. It's like you're simply calling out science' powerful back-up as sun defense!
Photobucket
Light as water, clearly your lightest SPF-powered skin care.
While I do experiment here and there to find cool products to feature and to find effective products to recommend; I feel safest and most comfortable when trusting brands that have years of research and teams of global expertise such as Nivea which I have known since I was a child trying on (and eventually breaking, to my horror) my mom's scarlet Dior lippies.



Happy to share with you a great alternative to Nivea's "canned cream" which I call it. I'm talking about Nivea Intensive Body Milk.

Photobucket
The name says it all. It glides on the skin like milk, and it gives your skin intensive nourishment, like milk!

Google will tell you how much I love milk! I love milk so much that my love for it transcends milk as a drink to milk as a super effective skin care format.

Above  is a photo of me foolishly wasting a rich concoction: ice cold milk and heavy cream mix. It felt so relaxing! If you haven't tried it yet, you should! It's kind of expensive--because it's so wasteful--but sometimes it's really just so enjoyable to play with food.
So imagine my delight whenever I meet body milks that are not as wasteful as my photo above!

Among those great body milk selections is Nivea's Intensive Body Milk. Let me show you my reasons why I love it:

I love Nivea Intensive Body Milk because it is...

Ubelievably affordable! It's SRP is only Php100 at 400ml (as shown in the photo) I don't know about you but that bottle is big! Because of its affordability, I am guilt-free in following my preferred lotion application style (a pump for every body area i.e. a pump for the right arm, a pump for the left arm, a pump for the chest, a pump for the arse, and so on... takaw ba sa lotion? hehe ganon talaga ako mag lotion eh!)

Segueway: another affordable Nivea product would be well, not just product but LINE! I love Nivea's range of roll-on. They do have wonderful stick and spray formats but I prefer their roll-ons. Since puberty! I think I can honestly credit them for not giving me body odor back in highschool (and until now!)

Using up a Nivea roll-on = me feeling triumphant!
Anyway, back to listing down our Nivea-lovin...
I love Nivea Intensive Body Milk because it is...

Specially developed to meet the needs of dry to very dry skin! This intensive lotion is also perfect for people with patches of dry skin all over their body as it corrects and balances out those dry areas giving you a smooth and supple skin all over after regular use. I love the fact that it is for dry and very dry skin not only because I fall under that category but also because as a night lotion, you're assured that you maximize your sleep time as your skin's recovery time as well!

Enriched with NATURAL MINERALS AND MOISTURIZERS. If you know me, you know, that I am a sucker for anything that leans closer to nature's touch.

Photobucket

Last but definitely not the least, I love its lock!

Oh! I hope you don't find it shallow or funny but I fell in love with it's lock. I know there are many products out there with a similar packaging but among all I have tried, Nivea's packaging executed the concept of a twist-lock head the best! I'm highlighting this because I have soooo much beauty products and slowly, packaging plays an extremely vital role in earning my trust and confidence!

Photobucket
It really locks! Like it's really a full-proof no-spill kind of locking system! (You might be wondering why is it the the "open" photo showing the head to be more pushed down, as if it were locked... well it's pushed down because on both photos, my index finger is pushing the head down and in the "close" photo, you can see I failed in pumping the head but in the "open" photo, I'm down baby! No product is dispensed because I took photos while the lotion was new so wala pang lumabas na product upon pumpin hehe)
Try it out as you may fall in love with it too! It's a bit difficult to find probably because it sells like pancakes! But find it in your favorite department stores and you're set to face the rest of summer's cold summer nights, while recovering from the rest of summers heavy humid days!

Happy skin time!

Like this post if you love milk too!
