Night Shopping


It's sister's birthday! We went to the mall to check out branded items on sale. Yay for mall shopping~


and of course, we never missed to visit Forever 21! I found a good and reasonably priced fur vest but arm holes are too big. XXXS please?


But this is just great for a photoshoot... should I buy on my next visit? Hopefully it's still there! It's only P1045. Zara fur vest costs around P4k! But of course, there's a big difference in quality.

We didn't miss to pamper ourselves. We had an Anti-acne facial treatment (ouch!) at Flawless since there are a lot of zits popping all over my face because of stress at work. Go away~

Sister got a chance to avail her treatment at a discounted price since it was her birthday (hey, how about me?). First, they made me smell a very relaxing scent of lavender oil and placed arm heater pads on my palm. Then the attendant applied foam cleanser and massaged it on my face. It's very light that my eye makeup wasn't totally removed. Then it was removed with a warm wet towel.

After that, she applied a thin coat of Aloe E cream and steamed. This cream will make my face softer and well moisturized. It also helps remove the blackheads and whiteheads easily. Once the cream is dry, she applied toner to wipe it off, she vacuumed loose dead skin. This sucking tool makes me giggle actually. I wonder how my face looks like when it is being vacuumed.

And the most hated part happened - PRICKING! They should have thought of a better way of getting whiteheads and blackheads out without hurting the clients. It's so painful D: but after pricking, she applied a super cool toner that provided a soothing relief from pricking. Then she applied another cooling facial mask that has anti-acne and antibiotic properties and after drying, she removed it and put anti-inflammatory cream to lessen the redness and swelling. Here's my look after the facial and putting back eyeliner!



Wearing the straw hat we bought at SM Dept. Store. Sister didn't want me to post her photo here ^^ too shy.. Isn't summer anymore but this hat is just lovely so I bought it. That's all for now. It's time to collate more experiences to blog~~ cha cha~~

MEGA Fashion Crew Ep 10 - Exuding Beauty in Threes


Exuding Beauty in Threes

Hype is building as the remaining teams feel the pressure to prove that they should be MEGA’s Top Fashion Crew. As a final twist last episode, no teams were eliminated during the last challenge. But for this week, good will not be enough.

The teams have made it this far and the judges are expecting only the best among the best.

MEGA's Magic 4


People always view beauty as seemingly effortless. In reality, it requires a lot of work to create an image worthy of perfection. It also needs quite a great deal of attention to achieve. This week’s challenge will show beauty in different aspects and stretch the contenders’ creative ideas further.

A three pronged challenge awaits contestants as they strive to be the final two.

Contestants will have to show beauty through three different mediums: a print ad; a television commercial; and a fashion show. The teams have already executed fashionable photos and a stylish runway show. But will they be able to pull-off a tv commercial for a product feature?

In just one challenge, teams have to display their strengths in the three challenges to wow the judges. The teams also need to convince judges on a product feature through a tv commercial. Will the challengers survive through three challenges in one episode?

Guest judge Joey Reyes, resident judges Raya Mananquil, Sari Yap, Avel
Bacudio, and guest judge Manuel Villafania


Veteran director Joey Reyes and top creative director Mr. Manuel Villafania share their ideas and expertise as a guest judge for the episode.

The teams must be bold enough for a beautiful triumph. The four remaining teams will have to show only their strongest to make the final cut for the grand finale. Who will be the last two teams vying to be MEGA’s Top Fashion Crew?

Catch Generation MEGA Season 2: MEGA Fashion Crew every Saturday at 7pm, with replays on Sundays at 10am, only on ETC.

MEGA Fashion Crew Ep 9 - Return to Temptation


RETURN TO TEMPTATION

Temptation being personified

After bringing high fashion to the streets of Manila, the remaining Mega Fashion Crew contestants are faced with the hypnotic – and sometimes dangerous – challenge of temptation.

This week, challengers will bring an expression of seduction. Teams will create a stylish look that mirrors the original temptress herself, Eve. Hold on to your senses and be allured with the most exotic episode of this season.

Prepping to be Eve


But how do you pull off a high fashion shoot without clothes? Think Eve and what else was with her in the Garden of Eden? This episode proves juicier than the bite on an apple. Sexiness will be brought to life with another round of surprises.

With the tantalizing Ms. Tessa Prieto Valdes as a guest judge, viewers will see her take on this sinfully delightful challenge.

Still, it’s not going to be a paradise of dreams for the teams. Some challengers will be eliminated as we inch closer to the grand finale of the show. With only 20 contenders left, only the strongest can survive the strong seduction of failure.

Catch Generation MEGA Season 2: MEGA Fashion Crew every Saturday at 7pm, with replays on Sundays at 10am, only on ETC.

Blonde from Azta Urban Salon


 
I've never bleached my hair ever since I am really afraid to try out a new hairstyle. When Azta Urban Salon offered my to try their Ombre Hair Color, I absolutely said yes without any hesitation. I know AZTA and I put all my trust on them.

I went to the salon at around 11am and when Hair Dresser Joie saw me, he said he wanted a twist with the Ombre Hair Color. He recommended a bleached part on my bangs and at the back and dark brown on the other areas of my hair. I really dont have an idea how it will look like! But I know Joie can do a great style on me so I agreed.

So after the usual shampooing, he cut my hair to medium length for easy color application. Good bye long hair!!!

Joie and Arnel at the back

He divided my hair into two parts for color division. It was quite tricky and I was really amazed how they did it.

Do I look silly?


Then they applied bleach on my bangs and at the back. It took a while since it was my first time to try it.


They applied Magic Brown on top and Golden Brown on the bleached part of my hair.


After rinsing, I also had a hair treatment to make my hair more manageable and beautiful! Now, Arnel is blow drying my hair. We're almost done!


And here's the final look. Say goodbye to manang look. Tada~


Thank you so much Hair Stylist Joie and assistant Arnel from Azta Urban Salon located at Forum Robinsons Mall (Pioneer). Everyone loves the highlights - even my mom! I'd definitely go back soon for another hair style!

My friends loved my hair and we had a mini shoot yesterday too!

Thank you guys for the shoot and Krish for curling my hair! Joie and my friends' suggestion was right. I actually like it more when curled :) Now this hair needs high maintenance, how would I be able to curl my hair everyday at work? I should find a way to curl it nice and fast!

What do you think of my hair now?

MEGA Fashion Crew Ep 8 - High Street Surprise


HIGH STREET SURPRISE

The street provides the setting for this week’s challenge. Like avenues and streets in the urban jungle,  challengers must find their way around twists and turns to reach their goal. Working with the theme “High Street Fashion”, challengers will be faced with a lot of firsts in this episode.

Aspiring Mega Fashion Crew contestants will have to face their newest challenge yet.

The judges from left, top menswear designer and stylist Bang
Pineda, top model Raya Mananquil, MEGA magazine EIC Sari Yap, top designer Avel
Bacudio and 50th Avenue Vice President Aisha Jaafar.


50th Avenue at Robinson’s Galleria partners with the Mega Fashion Crew. The challenge proves to be a stressful but special feat as teams will be working on the first anniversary ad campaign of 50th Avenue. The final looks will be featured at 50th Avenue’s display window. Challengers will conceptualize to show their take on high street fashion.

A first in the competition, teams will be doing the photo shoots on the streets. Watch to see how the contestants work through the uncontrolled environment outdoors. The team that survives shooting on the city streets will emerge as the victors for this challenge.

One of the teams tries to get the perfect shot
along the streets of Makati.


As another first, the guest mentor will double as the guest judge. In this challenge, high street fashion will determine who stays and who leaves. Those who find the right route are deserving to still be in the race to be Mega’s Top Fashion Crew.

MEGA Fashion Crew Ep 7 - The Challengers Take it out on the Runway




THE CHALLENGERS TAKE IT OUT ON THE RUNWAY


The remaining challengers will be taking it out on the runway this week in Episode 7 of Gen M Season 2: MEGA Fashion Crew, airing this Saturday, at 7pm, on ETC.

For this week’s challenge, the contestants will be part of a fashion show, sponsored by SM Ladies Fashion, which will be stage-directed by no less than top fashion show director, Robbie Carmona. “The runway will be your playground. This will be the fashion show that will decide if you are really worthy to be part of MEGA’s Top Fashion Crew,” says Mega Publishing Group Executive Creative Director Suki Salvador to the contestants.

One of the model contestants struts on the runway.

It may just as well seal their fate. It shall teach the contenders how tough it is to stage a fashion show in terms of makeup, fashion and hair styling, modeling, and photography. Interestingly, this runway challenge will be just the first of two more challenges.

The challengers face mentors Meryll Yan and Suki Salvador.

Aside from Carmona, SM Department Store’s Ladies Fashion Merchandising Division Head Pia Abad will join resident judges MEGA EIC Sari Yap, top fashion model Raya Mananquil, and top fashion designer Avel Bacudio in choosing the 25 challengers who will go on in the search for the MEGA Fashion Crew. Jocas De Leon, Brand Manager for SM Ladies Wear, will also be sitting in as a guest mentor together with Maybelline’s Archie Tolentino, L’Oreal Paris Philippines’ Borge Aloba, MEGA Deputy Editor Meryll
Yan, and Salvador.

MEGA Fashion Crew host Sari Yap with
guest judge Robby Carmona.

Trying a sweet oufit for a day. I just want to destress and feel like I'm at school again and I am having my exams everyday. So this is the item I've bought from Memo a week ago together with the camel sheer top. They have a lot of nice and sophisticated designs. Here are some of my photos trying the two clothes I've bought from them.
