Channeling Madonna and the 80’s


Hello, I'm back!   Guess what I did during my month-long absence from blogging? Clue: Our office celebrated its 80th founding anniversary last week, where we had activities lined up for both employees and our stakeholders.  The most anticipated activity was of course the Employees's Night which took place last Friday (May 26) at the PICC.   The theme was the 80's, and ...

Best Selling Korean Products are now in Manila through NWorld!


Celebrities and beauty junkies swear by the instant effects of Korean beauty products.  I have been doing my research on them for a while now so when I heard that there’s finally a Philippine-based distributor for them, I grabbed the opportunity and bought a package immediately.

Summer Heat Relief Efforts


I did a little shopping last weekend to help me combat the heat wave we're having right now: Although I always have my hair in a bun using big hair claws,  I still feel hot and uncomfortable. With the weather at 34-36 degrees Celsius everyday, the simple hair bun doesn't help anymore.  So I tried a mid-high hair bun using the hair claws and while that greatly helped in ... READ MORE
