What's on my table? Jergens Soothing Aloe Relief Moisturizer


Jergens Soothing Aloe Relief Skin Cooling Moisturizer

It's raining outside but I'm pretty sure a day or two the sun would show up again! Are you ready for the summer heat? 

I have to be honest, my skin is dry and dull. Aside from laziness, I used to hate sticky lotions and moisturizers. I can't stand the way it feels on my skin. Plus, our weather here in the Philippines takes away much moisture from the body so now, my skin is suffering. Being a beauty/fashion blogger, my skin should look healthy and hydrated. I'm trying to bring back the moisture that I've lost in my skin. To avoid that slimey and unnatural feeling from lotions and moisturizers, I choose moisturizers that feels light and fresh.


Good thing, there's Jergens Soothing Aloe Relief Skin Cooling Moisturizer! It keeps skin soft and smooth all day without feeling heavy and greasy. Enriched with natural aloe, eucalyptus and cucumber, it instantly cools down, revives and refreshes your skin even after prolonged sun exposure. It helps heal and relieve dry and uncomfortable skin when the wind, cold and sun take their toll.

It has a thick consistency and absorbs quick.

I got a cool Jergens mini fan!

Im sure you'll love the fresh scent too! Amoy bagong ligo all day! So before heading out this summer, bring a handy Jergens 25ml, 50ml or 100ml bottle with you to keep your skin fresh and hydrated anywhere, anytime! 


Jergens moisturizers are available in selected health & beauty store, department stores and supermarkets nationwide. For more skin care tips and info, visit their Facebook Fanpage.

What's on my table? Snoe Hair Heroes


Snoe Hair Heroes Extreme



I really need someone to save me from dry and dull hair. It suffered from severe styling and hair coloring. Nowis the time I have to show some TLC for my hair. So I called Snoe Hair 911 treatment for help. Good thing, they have Snoe Hair Heroes to the rescue! It's a revolutionary 5 in 1 product that acts as a cleansing conditioner, after shampoo conditioning rinse, deep treatment mask, leave on treatment and a straightening balm in one!


It has EMU oil and ACAI berry to save you from bad hair day! EMU Oil rejuvenates skin cells and produce up to 80% in healthy hair growth. It increases the synthesis of DNA in the epidermis - stimulating skin regeneration, hair follicle development, and the proliferation of the cells around the hair follicle.

Acai berry, on the other hand, contains the most powerful antioxidants that nourishes your hair with essential nutrients that are vital to the health of your hair.

It also contains Sunflower oil (split end protection), Panthenol Pro-Vit B5 (prevent damage from overheating and drying), Wheat Protein (anti-hair breakage and gives moisture), Morning extracts (strengthening and UV protector), and Indian Senna (for softer and brighter hair). With all these products combined, it's great to know that Snoe Hair Heroes smells really good! I love the fresh and sweet bubblegum scent of it.

Use it after shampoo or as a leave-on conditioner/balm (can be used on wet or dry hair). Good thing I've got this product before a WINDY event at Skye lounge a couple of days ago. Look how the wind blew my hair nicely with the help of this product. I dont even need to bring a comb with me cause I can easily fix it with my fingers.


Thanks Angel for these photos!


It sells with a justifiable price of P499.00 for 250ml. It is really recommended especially to those who don't have enough time for the salon. So is your hair calling for help? Purchase Snoe Hair Heroes Extreme now! 

Tangerine Tango: IAMMEG Launch


TANGERINE TANGO



Maxi dress from Forever21, belt from Zara, jewelries from mom, and shoes from Jazz your Style


For this shoot, I used MAC Studio Finish concealer. MAC Studio Fix powder plus foundation, Le Faerie eye palette for my eyeshadow, 4U2 liquid eyeliner, and MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in Morange.


It's my first time to apply smoky eyeshadow to myself and it went well I think. I need more practice though...



So last Tuesday, I attended Meg Magazine's launch for their official website: IAMMEG.PH at the Skye Lounge with Angel and a newly found friend, Kris. TM power! We had a lot of beauty and work chitchats. Everyone was encouraged to wear something nude or in skin tone shade 'cause skin is definitely in this summer. Okay... I was wearing - orange. Haha, that's the nearest nude I could get. XD


Wow, Meg had totally evolved! It was an All Grown Up party and they served unlimited Absolut vodka to everyone. Angel definitely enjoyed the night of overflowing drinks!

The show was hosted by Andi Manzano and Jessica Mendoza. I'm a bit sad the Ultimate MEG girl Bianca Gonzales was not present at the event.


They have announced the launch of their official website where you could get fresh updates from Meg, expert advice from Meg editors, grab style inspirations from Look of the Week, behind the scenes snaps from their cover shoots, hottest photos from the gallery page, and a virtual expression of your dreams and moods via the Lifeboard.

They have also mentioned about MEG Boracay Summer Party! Wow, that sounds fun! They have raffled a free trip to Boracay that night! I didn't know about the raffle, I should have joined! Meg is also coming up with I Am Meg TV soon! 


My camera got drunk. We failed on our mission to find Mother.


Congrats MEG for the successful launch of IAMMEG.PH~ I can't wait to grab my own copy of your April issue. More power!

MEG April Issue and IAMMEG.PH Web Launch!

Snoe Beauty Inc. is a stylish and high end cosmetics brand that is proudly made in the Philippines. I first saw them in a bazaar, and tried their Snoe Soap bars like Papaya, Green Papaya, Citronella, and Licorice. They're all good! I would love to try more of their products soon.

Last Saturday, I was invited to Snoe Suntervention Bloggers Convention with other fellow beauty bloggers. Though it was raining hard that day, the event itself was full of summer fun!


 

Everyone had their free falsies application at the makeover area near the registration and photos taken at the photo booth! Meet my fellow beauty bloggers:

Michelle, Sofie, and Clair :)

with Kim

Snoe Suntervention was hosted by Nyay Volante (sister of Nyoy) and welcomed us with a hot fire dance opening number! That was really cool!


Ms. Jen Gerodias-Diaz, founder and CEO of Snoe Beauty, introduced different Snoe products and shared a small beauty talk with us. She gave some helpful tips about skin and sunblock. She's really hands-on with her business and very inspiring. I love her for that.


They've also prepared some games for the bloggers like sunblock application with the Snoe hunks and toweling them after swimming. These beauty bloggers are all game for it:


They have chosen 3 beauty bloggers for the Best in Summer outfit too:

Irene, Martha, and Tara

Jen also mentioned that Snoe will be coming out with more cosmetics products and soon, Snoe will be available in Watson's too! I am really excited for this!


Everyone got Snoe money too and exchanged it for Snoe beauty products. I got Magic Apple Whitening S-rub and Hair Heroes Cleansing Conditioner. I'm excited to make a review about it. I totally enjoyed this day. Thank you so much to Snoe team for inviting me to be part of this fun event.

Bored at Metro Walk


Big sister accompanied me to shoot at Market Market and as a return I have to go with her at Metrowalk for her beauty session at one of the salons there. Since, the salon was too small and I don't really like the smell of the chemicals they use for the hair, I went out and took photos around instead.


*inserts forever alone guy*


I can't even connect to WIFI. Boo! 

Metrowalk is empty when we went there but usually when it's already dark, people start to hang out and it becomes a major commercial hub at night.



After that, we went to Robinsons Galleria for dinner and dined at an authentic Singaporean restaurant - Nasi Lemak! Yay! We ate Singapore Stir Fried Hokkien Mee noodles - P230 and Kue Pai Ti (5pcs) - P180.


The interior is similar to a small street noodle house in Singapore. We love the food here! Hope we could go back soon!

Whoops! Have you noticed that more and more girls are piling up a lot of accessories? Such accessorisation was brought back again from the 1920's fashion. Let's take a look at how Marc de Groot’s shoot of Bette Frank merged this with 2012 fashion for Modern Flapper inspiration.

Bulgogi Brothers


Last time, me and my friends went to Bulgogi Brothers Korean BBQ Restaurant at Greenbelt 5 for dinner (thanks Grace for the treat!). It was very peaceful when we arrived. In fact, we are the first customers to arrive that night. Bulgogi is a korean dish consists of marinated beef and it's a very popular Korean delicacy in the world. 


The STAR of the night:

It's Little Tantan!

The staff served us a wooden plate with corn, sweet potatoes and quail eggs as Welcome Food while waiting for our orders. They also served house tea - Bori Cha or the Barley Tea. Then they served different Korean side dishes like Spinach Salad, Kangkong, Eggplant and Kimchi!

 

We also tried their Haemul Gungjung Mandu (6pcs) - P450, which were fried dumplings (similar to the Japanese Gyoza) topped with slices of squid, shrimp and mussels and served with their to-die-for chili sauce. Perfectly paired with the bibimbap or just the plain old white rice.


Then we had Bulgogi Brothers Special (P1495). We asked the servers to cook it for us since Little Tantan was with us and he might play with the food. Yeah! We missed the fun part!!! And it supposed to be heart-shaped. I dunno what happened to the meat after cooking. XD



It was a fun bonding time with my friends and Little Tantan! Pat, I hope you are feeling better now. We all love you!
