Maureen Wroblewitz

To tell you honestly, I don't like watching shows that involves models. Why? Well because I envy those long legs and sexy bodies. Kidding aside, I do watch fashion series but not that religious until Maureen Wroblewitz joined Asia's Next Top Model.

I was hooked! I like Maureen. She seemed like a real nice girl. And I found out that she is really nice at Disney's Tsum Tsum Christmas Tree Unveiled at SM City North Edsa.

She was about to step out of the event venue when I spotted her. We were like 5 steps apart, when I blurted "can I have a photo please". She looked at the back and we made eye contact.

Good thing I was wearing my glasses by Eye See Fashion, it would have been a missed opportunity for me.  Thanks so much Dr. Ampie for my glasses!

Eye See Fashion

Looking for eye glasses that fits my style, lifetsyle and all other considerations like shape of my face, color of hair, etcetera, etcetera, takes a minimum of 48 hours. Seriously! I'm fickle-minded when it comes to glasses because I do not want to look oldie-oldie than my age.

Thanks to Eye See Fashion for my new spectacles made in Korea. Brand is BLSY, that's made of light weight material, called Ultem, so I don't feel like wearing glasses, I just remember I am because I can see very clear (wink!).

Eye See Fashion is online in Facebook, Instagram and Shopee. They have awide variety of optical frames. Mostly high quality. They also have limited stocks of branded frames.  Price range is from 750- 4500 with free shipping. They also replace lenses but clients have to provide prescription.

Fine Image Salon

I used to frequent Bahayang Pag Asa, in Molino, Bacoor, Cavite when I was in college because I have many friends and classmates who live within the area. That was like 25 years ago!

The last time I went in the the same place was 3 years ago to attend a Christmas party, mom-in-law's family reunion actually.

I thought it will take some more years to visit again because Tita Chat and her family had already migrated in Japan, while Titi Jun and family migrated in Canada.

Well, life has its ways of bringing you back in a place that was a venue of so many wonderful moments...

Last February I met this nice woman, named Joy, in Travel Fair in MOA when she advised me to get that El Nido trip. We connected in Facebook and became close as I would often ask her for advice and tips of travel.

Joy invited me for the opening of her salon - Beauty Lounge by Fine Image Salon, but I was not able to make it due to tight schedule. 

Finally last week, John and I were able to make it at Fine Image Salon. John tried their whole body massage, had haircut, manicure and pedicure. I had Brazilian Keratin to treat my damaged hair and Manicure-Pedicure-Foot Spa and Nail Art.

What you will like at Fine Image Salon, first and foremost,  is that all their staff are TESDA trained with years of experience. Secondly, the price range for different services is affordable.  Third, they have a daintycorner where you can take selfies  or groufies to your hearts content. Last but defintely not the least, and definitelt very important for coffee lovers like me, Fine Image Salon server free coffee.

If you want to book an appointment, you may call them at 0920 450 3466 or visit them at NRR Bldg, Avenida Rilizal St. Bahayang Pag Asa, Molino, Bacoor, Cavite.

HIStory Leather Bags by FINO

Having a spouse with a discriminating taste on stuff and things gives me headache in finding a gift that he will like. This is my dilemma three times a year - to find a gift that my husband will like for his birthday in July, our anniversary in September and Christmas in December. 

John usually would opt for a novel book, Star Wars Lego or a statue.  For this coming holidays, I asked him to join me in Powerplant Mall to check out HIStory collection by FINO Leatherware. 

He tried all the collection by Elbert Cuenca (seasoned restaurateur),  Bryan MCCleland,  Carlo Ople (VP of Digital Strategy and Disruptive Business for PLDT), Chef Robby Gocco, Monchet Olives, Eric Paras (Interior Designer) and Raul Ona.

John liked all the bags, specially the sleek and compact bag by Raul Ona.

Celavive by USANA

Earlier today at Hexagone Lounge in RCBC Plaza, Makati City, USANA gave select bloggers and media a glimpse on its newest product line - Celavive by USANA. 

Headlining the event was, Ms Aurora Gaston, USANA Vice President of the Philippines and Indonesia.

Present at the event are Celavive Ambassadors, namely, Sam Pinto, Sara Jane Paez, Michelle Barrera and Misagh Bahadoran.

This Cell Signaling Complex includes targeted ingredients to support the genes responsible for your body’s natural, beauty-preserving functions. InCelligence maximizes the potency and effectiveness of the plant-based ingredients included in the Celavive Cell Signaling Complex. Celavive skincare—with the help of InCelligence and Cell Signaling Complex—goes further and deeper to moisturize skin and help maintain the skin’s natural barrier function by enhancing cell communication.

Celavive™ Perfecting Toner uses numerous natural plant extracts to keep skin clean and pure. These plant extracts include sakura cherry blossom extract, a unique plant-based seven botanical blend, and Olivol® Botanical Blend, a blend of botanical oils. This toner prepares skin for hydration with hot spring mineral water. Working together, these key components enable your skin to get clean, stay clean, and hydrate well in preparation for the next step.

Celavive™Vitalizing Serum is age-defying and youth-preserving serum that uses a powerful formulation of peptides and botanicals to help achieve smooth and flawless looking skin.

Celavive™ Creamy Foam is a sensational hydration and cleanser—formulated specifically for combination skin types. It can be tricky to hydrate, cleanse, and keep skin looking clear at the same time, but your skin can have it all with Celavive Creamy Foam Cleanser. The cleanser is designed with natural ingredients essential to enhancing your innate beauty. A special combination of sugars and salt harness moisture from within your skin to reveal a supple, well-hydrated appearance. At the same time, soapberry extract acts as a gentle cleanser.

Celavive™ Gentle Milk Cleanser solves this dilemma by gently cleansing and moisturizing skin. Gentle Milk Cleanser’s active ingredients gently remove excess sebum and dirt, and help strengthen the barrier proteins of the epidermis to sustain healthy, hydrated, and beautiful skin. Gentle Milk Cleanser goes beyond just cleansing skin. It protects and defends skin from environmental damage. This promotes healthy moisture retention and helps cleanse toxins and impurities. Relieve your sensitive skin from harsh chemicals and greasy lotions with Celavive Gentle Milk Cleanser.

Celavive™ Conditioning Makeup Remover lifts stubborn makeup from the skin while conditioning with sugar-based moisturizers. When makeup is not removed from the skin, pores can get clogged and the skin can become dry and irritated. This makeup remover pulls cosmetics from the pores and skin surface, to help keep the skin clean. It also moisturizes and prepares skin for cleansing with other Celavive skincare products.

No skincare regimen is complete without a toner step. Toners close pores that have been cleansed of impurities, and smooth the appearance of your skin to uncover your youthful glow.
