Watsons: Bath to Basics Campaign

With review school taking up 90% of my time, I consider taking a bath one of my daily dose of self-therapy. I'm not one for long baths on a regular basis, my siblings would attest to that. The only time I take more than 30 minutes in the shower is when I'm excited to try something new - be it a new scrub, a shower cream or most often than not, a new hair mask. Although lately, whenever I want to take some time off from studying without feeling guilty, I take a relaxing bath to refresh both my mind and body. Plus, I get a lot of thinking done in the shower so it's a win-win situation for me. :)
Just the other week I was invited to the launching of Watsons' new campaign called Bath to Basics. The event proper was held at the Ki Neo Day Spa in BGC. It's a cozy little paradise in the middle of the busy business district - the location is just perfect.. corporate individuals could just drop by for a few hours and return to their busy schedule all vamped up and ready for the challenges ahead.

Dr. CRB, RF Diaries: Part 1 - Face

I'm a very lazy person and there's no denying that. It'll take an army to force me to wake up early in the morning to go for a run and a great deal of self-control to stop munching on random food while I watch TV. Yes, I'm that kind of girl. And to make things even worse than they already are, voluptuousness run in our family - there's no escaping that! 
That said, it would be rather foolish of me to refuse an offer to try something that promises to help me lose weight without lifting a finger. Ladies and gents, let me introduce to you (again) an easier alternative to shed those baby fats and double chins. Haha. Over summer vacay, I had my face and arms done at Dr. CRB in BGC. I'm quite excited to share the results with everyone but I don't want to compress everything in one lengthy post so I decided to come up with a two-part RF diary type of logs. Obviously, part one would be the face. :)

Review: Belo Essentials Kojic Soap

Most of us try to hold unto the last piece of summer vibe as much as we can but when the rain comes pouring on a daily basis, that's a clear sign that summer is indeed finally over. It's time to neatly put those bikinis and shades at the back end of your drawers and pull out them boots and umbrellas. Although one summer thing we can't easily shake off is our noticeably tanner skin tone from all the beach hopping and road trips. Now that's the first item on my "summer-is-over" agenda: get my normal skin tone back so I can use my regular foundations again.
Having the same problem as I am? Worry not because the country’s top-rated celebrity dermatologist formulated the perfect solution specifically aimed to solve our dilemma. Like a direct answer to our prayers, the Belo authority recently launched Belo Intensive Whitening Bar (Kojic Acid + Tranexamic Acid). This whitening bar boasts of a unique combination of today’s two most powerful whitening actives – Kojic Acid and Tranexamic Acid. Leave it to the Belo authority to expertly formulate an effective product with such impeccable timing, too. :)

GBridal: One-Stop Shop For Party Dresses

There comes a point in every girl's life that they get this strong fixation about pretty dresses. That's just how it is - it's in our DNA. :) And of course, there is this one super special dress that every woman dreams to wear at least once in her life. Yes, I'm talking about that pristine while wedding gown that has to be nothing short of perfection for the big day.
Okay, it doesn't have to be a big wedding gown. If you're not yet ready for the big commitment (or settle down, for that matter) like me? Well, we better stick with the classic yet elegant little black dresses that never go out of trend. Here's another online shopping mall you might want to visit for all your dress needs. <3

Review: MakeUp Academy Pro-Brow Ultimate Eyebrow Kit

We try to emphasize time and again for important brows are in completing a look and how they should complement the shape of our face to properly frame it. I'm taking a different, more persuasive approach. It's as simple as this: imagine your face without your eyebrows - completely gone and bold. How do you like it? Not diggin' it? Then for the love of bacon, fix your brows! >.<  P.S Yeah, I love bacon. HAHA!

The ultimate brow kit, this kit contains the tools to shape, shade and highlight. The kit includes eyebrow and highlight shades, fixing gel, a handy brow brush and mini tweezers!

June 2014 BDJ Box: "Hey Gorgeous... Let the Beauty Begin!", A Benefit Cosmetics-Exclusive Box

This is what I miss most now that I'm accounting-related stuff consume not just my free time but everything; time, money and energy, mostly. I miss waiting for the perfect angle of the sunlight to take nice photos and then sitting in front of my laptop as I type away - this is my idea of a relaxing day. And what better way to spend the only day of the week I get to myself than to write a post on BDJ's latest box. I have to admit that this is a bit late but then again, you can't punish a girl for "studying hard". I guess I'm forgiven then? :)
The June BDJ Box is definitely one for the books. It is a Benefit Cosmetics-Exclusive Box unlike any other. BDJ did launch another box with the same brand a couple of months before but it wasn't this impressive (See it HERE), to tell you honestly. This time around the samples are all deluxe-sized - meaning, they're good for more than a single use so you can really test the product AND they come in tiny versions of their original packaging which, I think, is pretty neat. <3

I've always had a love-hate relationship with the brand and if you're a long-time reader, you've probably seen my review on the Benefit Cosmetics How To Look The Best At Everything. FYI, I never used that kit again after posting the review. But with this June BDJ Box, I'm actually rethinking my status with the brand. P.S I might be getting the full size of the Fake Up Concealer real soon. HAHA.
