Girlstuff Bloggers Summer Elite Collection

Representing different walks of life and different personalities to boot the summer collection of four sophisticated shades are named after the bloggers blog themselves.

GirlSuff Bloggers Elite Summer Collection

For starters, bohemian pink has been named after the blog AskMeWhats. Behind this blog is working mom Nikki Tiu. An HR professional who moonlights as a make-up artist, Nikki is a nail art
enthusiast who absolutely adores the color pink. AskMeWhats is an extraordinary very feminine shade. Kind of like an orchid because of its lilac
undertone. What’s more, it reminds me of my Mom whose favorite color is lilac. This perfect blend of pink and Ulac reflects a very young, cheerful vibe just like my personality.” Nikki said.

Fashion entrepreneur, event organizer and blogger Christina Decena’s Struttingonsunshine biog inspired Girlstuffs sky blue shade. “What struck me the most with this blue shade is its brilliance! I see sunny skies and cerulean seas… This shade speaks to me. It’s like a dreamy cruise in a botde!” she enthuses. It s the perfect shade for me because it encapsulates my wanderlust for the world!”

Girtstuffs lime green shade reminds blogger/model Jackie Go of a tropical paradise. “Girlstuff totally nailed
it with this shade. It has captured the calming hue of nature. And this type of shade works well with any skin tone. So it’s a perfect shade to frolic in this summer.” A mother of two and a model. Jackie’s blog Go Jackie Go is a channel for spreading good news and good vibes to women.

An editor-in-chief of a baby magazine, blogger Frances Amper Sales’ sunnier-than-than-the-sun disposition is best captured in Girlstuffs chartreuse shade. “This yellow shade is so bright and happy,you just won^t be able to ignore it! It’s bold and fun!” she pronounces. On her Topaz Horizon blog, she’shares
stories of her many roles as a woman.
Girlstuff Bloggers’ Elite Summer Collection uses their well-loved sophisticate gel-type formula to
turn four fun shades into sassy, shiny,trendy and long lasting polish.

Girlstuff is made in France and free
of harmful chemicals. Safe for kids and pregnant women!

Go Play with Your Hair and Let Dove Take Care of the Damage

#DoveGoPlay Go Play with Your Hair and Let Dove Take Care of the Damage

Fact:  8 out of 10 women say that when their hair looks beautiful, they feel happier about themselves.

Earth at #DoveGoPlay
Yes, I am one of those 8 who said I feel more beautiful when my hair looks beautiful

Look at the photo above taken by Ana Gonzales I super love how my hair looked here and I feel really good about it.  This was taken right after playing with my hair at the #DoveGoPlay stations during the Dove Go Play event held at the Mind Museum in Taguig.

But that hair did not just happened in an instant.  I had to do some styling to make it look that way.

#DoveGoPlay Let's Play with Our Hair Let Dove Take Care of the Damage
Did you know that 84% of women are aware that styling activities damage their hair but still continue to do so because it makes them feel good about themselves?

#DoveGoPlay
It will surprise you but simple brushing of our hair damages it!  Especially just right after washing them!  So that 100x brushing does not really make hair more prettier but rather makes hair weaker!  Yikes!

#DoveGoPlay Let's Go Play with our Hair Let Dove Take Care of the Damage

Another hair damage culprit is drying our hair using the hair blower!   No matter how high or low , cool instead of hot the setting is, it damages the hair!   Hurrying the hair to dry faster than just letting it dry on its own makes the hair brittle!

#DoveGoPlay Let's Play with Our Hair Let Dove Take Care of the Damage
And there’s no doubt about it, coloring our hair damages it. Period. No if’s and but’s it just damages it!

#DoveGoPlay Let's Go Play with Our Hair Let Dove Take Care of the Damage
But but but! Instead of telling us to stop doing all these things to our hair to stop the hair damage, Dove actually encourages everyone to play with out hair because they will take care of the damage!

Which what we girls obliged to our pleasure!

Dove’s latest campaign invites women to Go Play with their Hair, while Dove takes care of the damage.

PhotoGrid_1425401057911[1]
This is because the Dove Hair Therapy variants have Keratin-Actives, a patented hair care technology that not only repairs damaged hair but also strengthen it to make it more resilient against future damage.

To show us how this thing works, they gave us a demo using white roses.  One was dipped with the Dove Hair Therapy Conditioner solution while the other the competition brand.

#DoveGoPlay Let's Go Play with Our Hair Let Dove Take Care of the Damage
Tada!  The left rose is already dead after blow drying it for 45 minutes. The other rose on the right still looks good and fresh even if it was blow dried for 45 minutes, because it was coated with Dove Hair Therapy. Amazing right?

#DoveGoPlay Let's Go Play with Our Hair Let Dove Take Care of the Damage
Keratin-Actives provide superior nourishment and deeply penetrate into hair to repair it from the inside out, so hair looks, and feels healthy and more beautifully.

Tease, twirl, tousle and have the beautiful hair you always wanted. Go play with your hair and let Dove take care of the damage!

Let me show you a nice and playful #DoveGoPlay video we did at the event!

Dove Intense Repair Haircare range is available in all leading supermarkets, drugstores, and department stores nationwide.
Stay gorgeous everyone!

Tips for Being a Great Party Host

When it comes to being a stellar hostess for your next event, there are a few commandments to follow to give your guests a memorable and fun party.

happy party people
Give Yourself More Time Than You Need

The last thing you want to do is greet your guests at the door covered in flour and still wearing your work clothes. While most guests will probably arrive a little late, it is inevitable that one person will show up right on time, leaving you scrambling to entertain him while you get ready. Allow yourself a little more time to ensure that you are ready to start your party.

Make Your Home Smell Nice

If you are planning a game watching party, start cooking the appetizers early so that your house smells yummy when guests arrive. Put out a few snacks and concentrate on cooking your foods with the strongest smells, like onions or baked goods.

Make Your Guests Feel Welcome

Great hosts and hostesses make their guests feel welcome. One of the best ways you can make your guests feel comfortable is in your style of dress. If you are hosting a game watching party, put on your team jersey and sneakers. You can even get the kids in on the action and dress them in Steelers baby clothes to join in on the fun.

Serve Great Food

Great food makes a great party. Have appetizers on hand to keep your guests snacking before the main course. Test out your new recipes and create tasty food that looks great. Enlist friends to help with the cooking and make your party a culinary delight. Display your food in appetizing ways that will appeal to the senses.

Bring Out Your Inner DJ

Nothing kills a party faster than awkward silence. Pull out your favorite music player and put on the tunes. Let your guests request songs and take turns playing DJ. Fun music will also help to relax guests who may not know anyone else at the party. There are great tunes that will get everyone in the mood to party so charge up your iPod and find some good songs.

Thank Your Guests

Your party would not be a success without your guests, so be sure to thank them. Giving them a small favor as a token of your gratitude is always welcome. You can also just say “thank you.”

When it comes to throwing a great party, follow these helpful tips.

Have you ever experience a lame party that the minute you step in you wanted to step out already?  Would like to hear your party stories at the comments section below!

Stay gorgeous everyone!

Looking at her while she was being interviewed by the mainstream media at the launch held at R Space Events Venue in Makati, I can sense her humbleness and genuineness that you rarely feel from someone as popular as her or her contemporaries.

Pope Francis Nagmistulang Araw (Pope Francis a Ray of Sunshine)

PhotoGrid_1421660199000

Anong sinabi ng Sinulog Festival sa Cebu sa Papal Visit in Manila last Sunday kung saan 6 milyong tao ang nagdasal, nabasa, nagsaya, nagtipon, nagsayaw, kumanta, at nagwalkathon! Suot ang pinakafashionable  #OOTD ang mga black at transparent garbage bag at kapote lahat naging waterproof kahit mga gadgets!

(What’s Sinulog Festival in Cebu compared to the Papal Visit in Manila last Sunday where 6 million people prayed, got drenched in rain, celebrated, gathered, danced, sang and went on a pilgrimage.  Doning the most fashionable #OOTD , the black and transparent garbage bag and raincoat, everyone became waterproof even their gadgets)

Bilib ako sa milyong Pilipino na nagtyaga, nagtiis at naging disiplinado at pasensyoso nitong ilang araw na pagbisita ni Pope Francis sa Pilipinas.

(I am amazed with the million Filipino who were patient, diligent and disciplined during the past few days of Pope Francis in the Philippines)

Kahapon, Linggo, January 18,2015 ang huling pagmimisa ni Pope ay naganap sa Quirino Grandstand.  Umabot sa 6 na milyong Pilipino ang dumalo at pakalat-kalat sa kahabaan ng Roxas Blvd at Taft Avenue. Nagaabang, naghihintay na masulyapan si Pope Francis.

(Yesterday, Sunday, January 18,2015 the Pope’s last Mass happened at the Quirino Grandstand.  An estimate of 6 million Filipinos attebded and were scattered along Roxas Blvd and Taft Ave.  Patiently waiting for a glimpse of Pope Francis)

Isa ako sa mga taong iyon.

(I was one of them)

Hindi ko alam kung paano ako nakarating sa kung saan ako naging matagumpay at nagkaroon ng pagkakataon na masulyapan nasulyapan ng Santo Papa kahit isang saglit pero masayang masaya na ako doon.

(I don’t know how I got to where I had a successful chance to see the Pope but I was very happy for that moment)

Eto ako sa may Max sa may Roxas Blv. cor Malate. Kakain sana ako o maghohot choco or cofee kasi giniginaw na ako sa basa kaso puno so tumambay nalang muna ako sa labas at nagpatuyp ng konti bago lumarga. Nagdasal ng konti na gabayan ni Lord kubg saan ako pupunta kasi mejo naliligaw narin ako haha. Sabi ko kay Lord dalhin ako kung saan masisilayan ko si Papa!

After the mass madami parin nagpunta sa Quirino cor Taft for a chance glimpse of the Pope.  Basang bada sa ulan ang lahat. Riles lang ng LRT ang cover namin. Ako nasa ilalim ako ng payong ng vendor ng fishball at kikiam gutom na kasi ako eh. Aba mahal ng chickenballs Php2.50 isa.

After the mass madami parin nagpunta sa Quirino cor Taft for a chance glimpse of the Pope. Basang bada sa ulan ang lahat. Riles lang ng LRT ang cover namin. Ako nasa ilalim ako ng payong ng vendor ng fishball at kikiam gutom na kasi ako eh. Aba mahal ng chickenballs Php2.50 isa.

Oo kikiam at chickenballs lang kinain ko. May baon naman akong trail mix saka Gatorade. Meron din akong powerbank, sunblock at lipglosss hahaha!

My bagfie and shoefie during Papal VisitAkala ko kasi hihinto ang ulan kaya ayan lang dala ko. Wala akong payong o kapote man lang.

Akala ko rin maraming makakainan along Taft and Roxas Blvd wala pala sarado lahat. Yung mga bukad like McDonalds, Jolibee, Max at Aristocrat puno.

Akalain mo sa dami daming tao sa Roxas Blvd. nakita ko pa yung mga dating boss ko sa dyaryo!

Ayan pauwi mga tao after the mads mega walkathon. Ang mga kalsada srado so ang daming detour. Walang sadakyan ang mga parking area mga 4 kilometer away from Quirino Grandstand ! Sarado from Buendia to UN Avenue Taft!

Ang pinakanakakatuwa:

  1. Mataas ang pasensya ng nga tao (patience is a virtue) Ilang oras naghintay, nabasa, nagutom, naihi at nagpigil ng ihi, naglakad ngnpagkalayu-layo pero sige lang!
  2. Mababait ang mga tao at kataka-taka pero nakatutuwa na hindi nangamba sa kaligtasan ng mga kagamitan kahit siksikan ang mga tao. Wala akong nabalitaan na nadukutan o natakot na madukutan.  Napakasafe maglakad ng kilome-kilometro nung araw na yun kahit madilim na ay di na alam ng karamihan saan sila naglalakad!
  3. Matanda, bata, may kapansanan o wala, babae , lalake o member ng third sex, mayamam, mahirap lahat pantay pantay naglalakad, nagaabang, nabasa ng ulan walang maaarte!
  4. Ang daming pulis pero di nakabantay sa tao kungdi kay Pope to keep him safe. Ganyan ang Pinoy hospitality, best foot forward to keep the visitor safe and have a happy and memorable visit even at the expense of the hosts basta masaya ant kumportable ang bisita. 

May ilan na natatawa at pinagtatawanan ang ganitong “debosyon” ng mga taong nagsumiksik kahapon (6 million!) hayaan na natin sila basta tayong nakasaksi ng pangyayari masaya at magpatuloy na maging “blessing” sa mga taong nakapaligid sa atin.  Sana ang Pope Francis effect will transcend even after his visit.  The wind of change he brought with him regarding Catholic/Christian faith and practice is something the modern times needed.

Viva El Papa, Papa Francesco!

my pope francis encpunter

Totoo, masilayan lang ni Pope sumisigla, lalong sumigla. Kahit na walang tigil ang ulan at di man lang nasilayan ang araw, si Pope Francis ang nagmistulang araw noong araw na iyon na pinagalab ang puso ng bawat Pilipino sa kanyang mga aral at kabutihan. Kitang kita ko iyon sa 35 segundong nasulyapan ko siya! Kahanga-hanga!

(It’s true, Pope’s presence got people energized. Even with the non-stop rain and the sun did not even peek, Pope Francis was the ray of sunshine that day, he set the Filipino hearts ablaze because of his lessons, kindness and compassion. I saw that in the 35 seconds I had a glimpse of the Pope. Amazing!)

Ikaw, nakita mo ba si Pope Francis? Kamusta naman ang experience mo?  Kwento naman jan!

P.S. may mga tao talagang may masasabi ng masama at maghuhukay ng baho kahit na napakatagal na yun at iba na at marami nang mas maganda kang nagawa sa buhay mo at sa kapwa mo. Please Pray For Me the Pope Francis keep asking everyone.  Please pray for each other.

Stay gorgeous everyone!

My #DearPopeFrancis #BlessedbythePope #PopeFrancis Encounter

my pope francis encpunter

Haters are gonna hate, that’s a sad truth. While there are non-believers or non-Catholic/Christians who has something nasty to say about the Pope Francis in the Philippines I am one of the 6 million people who feel blessed by the Pope Francis arrival in the country.

While some will say he is just a human and nothing else. I would say he is somehow a person who represents someone who can bind and unite people into coming back to faith in the goodness of men ergo the “Mercy and Compassion” for all human regardless of age,sex and religion.

my pope francis encpunter
I was one of the 6 million people out there occupying the streets of Manila for Pope Francis last day in the Philippines and last mass at the Quirino Grandstand. Up until now, I am still elated by the experience of finally seeing the Pope Francis in person. It was truly a humbling experience and a really inspiring one.

Albeit my Pope Francis encounters were only composed of three (3) three thirty (30) seconder glimpse, it was all worth it all the long walks, soaking wet under the non-stop rain and halted bathroom breaks until everything was over!

More stories later for now sleeps for me (beauty rest).

Continuation…

Yesterday was the worst day to (weatherwise) to brace and see Pope Francis, the rain was non-stop, it was a cold day (relatively for Metro Manila weather) but that did not stop the million of Filipinos to get a glimpse of the highest leader of the Catholic Church and of Vatican City.   I was a witness and was one of thos to prove that the Filipino spirit is indeed “waterproof”/”weatherproof”. The closest I can get to Pope Francis

Because of the non-stop rain, even the Pope Francis have to wear a raincoat!

After he passed by, everyone was so happy and was jumping with joy. We even shared happiness with the strangers around us who all shook hands and embraced each other because we all feel blessed.

I know those who did not experience it could not relate to this feeling.  But I will try to place myself on the shoes of the non-believer.

Do you have an actor/actress/singer you idolize?  It is just like that that feeling when you finally see them.  A glimpse of the person you look up to validates the reason you admire him/her. It is because of what he/she does and what he/she stands for . It humanizes him/her it gives you more reason to follow him/her and believe in what he/she does and stand for.  That’s how it is basically.

And then there are those who went to see him because of the feeling of missing out (FOMO).   Coz if you don’t see him you are not in. You have missed out. I don’t care what anybody thinks about that, on a personal note,I feel happy and blessed and there is more reason for me to be a blessing to everyone because of that. I am happy.

Stay gorgeous everyone!

Excerp from Pope Francis homily from Quirino Grandstand mass

Sometimes, when we see the troubles, difficulties and wrongs all around us, we are tempted to give up. It seems that the promises of the Gospel do not apply; they are unreal. But the Bible tells us that the great threat to God’s plan for us is, and always has been, the lie. The devil is the father of lies. Often he hides his snares behind the appearance of sophistication, the allure of being “modern”, “like everyone else”. He distracts us with the promise of ephemeral pleasures, superficial pastimes. And so we squander our God-given gifts by tinkering with gadgets; we squander our money on gambling and drink; we turn in on ourselves. We forget to remain focused on the things that really matter. . Sadly, in our day, the family all too often needs to be protected against insidious attacks and programs contrary to all that we hold true and sacred, all that is most beautiful and noble in our culture. In the Gospel, Jesus welcomes children, he embraces them and blesses them (Mk 10:16). We too need to protect, guide and encourage our young people, helping them to build a society worthy of their great spiritual and cultural heritage. Specifically, we need to see each child as a gift to be welcomed, cherished and protected. And we need to care for our young people, not allowing them to be robbed of hope and condemned to life on the streets.

#Throwback: My Own Papal Visit Experience

Pope Francis to Meet Filipino Families at SM MOA Arena on Papal Visit 2015

As much as I wanted to see Pope Francis a.k.a. Lolo Kiko for his first Papal Visit here in the Philippines, the super exaggerated security measures is preventing me to do so.

As much as I am excited like all Catholic and Christians out there,  I may not be that resilient enough to not have an umbrella, water or food just to be a chance “viewer” of the Pope Francis when he arrives. I am also unhappy and discouraged with the kind of sugar coating the Philippine government has been doing dressing up the country so the Pope will have a pleasant visit.  Disallowing home owners in Palo Leyte to view the Pope at the second floor of their own homes/property and having the Philippine Police eat on plastic packed lunched for the every 5 meter barricade is just too much.

Pope Francis is the Pope of the people and he believes in “inclusion” “embracing everyone” into Catholicism.  This kind of security is just making it so “exclusive” and to me very discriminating and shooing everyone away.

I also learned that Internet services in the country(?) will be shut down an hour before he arrives today, January 15,2015 6pm.

I understand we want to protect the Pope from threats of terrorism.  We want to keep him safe.  We don’t want to suffer the embarassment and prosecution of the entire world if something bad happens to him.  But this kind of securitu is really provocative.  Is there something they know that we don’t know?

I know I sound so disappointed. I may just be having bitter thoughts for not having not having a guaranteed chance to see Pope Francis this time around.

Twenty years ago, I was one of the million youth in the Philippines who saw now Saint Pope John Paul II during the World Youth Day 1995.

Security was not as tight as this.  People were allowrd to hold vigils at the Rizal Park.  I saw the Saint Pope John Paul II twice.  One was when we were at the Chinese Garden at Luneta Park lounging with my fellow choir members and the Pope mobile surprisingly passed by unannounced!

The second time was his last day, when he held a mass at the Quirino Grand Stand . Bracing the crown I made it at the stage. In front of the Saint Pope John Paul II, I was able to touch his hands, I was blessed!

It was such an exciting feeling. It was an experience to remember.

I understand why there are a lot of people who will still go brace the barricades and the scorching sun, thirst and hunger just to see the Pope Francis Lolo Kiko.  I had the same feeling back then 20 years ago and its all coming back to me!  I may still root for a chance meet tomorrow January 16, 2015 at Manila Cathedral where those who will attend are encouraged to bring their own Sto. Nino because it is also the feast of the Sto. Niño!

Good luck everyone and God bless!
