I Zumba almost everyday, I like doing it because it is a fun way to exercise compared to the boring gym setting where you lift weights or stretch without tempp. I like dancing to a nice beat and Zumba stretches all parts of your body and makes you sweat buckets which is good. Exercising makes obe hapoy and makes you glow naturally.
When Glutamax invited me over for their White Zumba Party of course I went!
There I was caught in the act !

The much talked about H&M Manila Philippines VIP Opening Night finally happened. Last night about 1,500 VIP guest were invited for an advanced shopping spree at the newest global fashion brand that is now available in the country!
I didn’t say a word about me going until the last minute because I was waiting for my “Golden Ticket” but apparently I didn’t get one. I have an e-invite to the shopping party so my ticket was face value!
I was one of the early birds so I was able to scale and scout the humongous red carpet area!
One of the major concern of my readers was how are the prices at H&M Philippines?
How are the prices at H&M Manila Philippines? Affordable than you can imagine!
VIP Shoppers of H&M Manila lining up at the cashier on the 1st floor. View from the 2nd floor
Without this wrist band you can’t shop!
Almost everyone you need to know from the Philippines fashion, entertainment, media and PR industry was there. But the shopping frenzy was more crazy than people watching so you may bump into a lot but no guts to take pic. So here are just my rare photo moments with people haha!
With Angela Nepomuceno, Ruth dela Cruz, Jackie Go, Christine Dychiao and Sophie Sumners of America’s Next Top Model!
See something you like? Go! Public opening is on October 17, 2014 and early birds get voucher of Php6,000.00 for tge first 200 if I am not mistaken.
I was asked if it is worth it to line up as early as 6am for the opening on Saturday, I say yes with Php2,000 you can get a lot of nice pieces depending on what items you buy. Basics starts at Php290.00 the highest I saw was Php2,090.00. You can get a nice bag with nice quality for Php2,000.00 or a pair of boots then get a basic tshirt.
As for the quality, the ones I saw were good, fabric was nice and stitching was ok. I just hope in the next coming days and weeks and months of H&M Manila Philippines, the quality will not detiriorate just like some other popular global brands in Manila most of them sell rubbish now.
Thank you H&M for the advanced shopping opportunity! I will definitely comeback. Thank you foe the lovely presents as well!
Forever 21 is always one of my go-to shop when I need a new piece to make my look updated or stylish but I will always be drawn at colors and prints or standout pieces.
When I was invited to play part at the makeover styling contest using the Forever 21 Fall/Winter 2014 Collection at the store relaunch event held at SM Megamall, what my makeover partner Catch made me wear would be some pieces I will use individually but will not put together myself. This would be my First x Forever (maipasok lang!)
Did you recognize me? Catch styled me like a tourist in Korea he said.
I like it, it was totally not my style but will try it once likr today. See I wouldn’t wear an entire black ensemble because my mom will kill me. She believe and feel like wearing an entire black ensemble is like someone mouring. The only exemption I wore an entire black ensemble was when we were mouring my father’s death 7 years ago. After a whole ywar of wearing black and white only I got tired of the dull black and the sad moment it symbolizes. So, because of that I wear more color or at least a splash of happy colors here and there in my outfit.
Now back to the styling contest. Yuki and Rhea team won the styling contest and I couldn’t agree more. Their style was fresh and chic with splashes of fall colors. Their style is something I will wear myself. Earth tones as they said.
Raisa and Tin wear streetstyle and preppy something. I didn’t hear their style explanation really coz I was at the backstage.
I was not able to take any photos that the real models wore at the First x Forever show but I grabbed some of the pics from Ruth dela Cruz, Sarah Tirona and Forever 21! Here they are:
If you want to see the Fall/Winter 21 collection upclose come visit the relaunched Forever 21 store at SM Megamall B and grab those new pieces to update your wardrobe. Or visit www.forever21.com.ph and shop online 24/7 #firstxforever.
I have been blogging at Earthlingorgeous for 7 years but been writing online when blogging was not even a word.
While I attend events to mingle with the people I interact online in person, I also attend events to broaden my network and reach out to more potential readers and clients.
When I was invited to attend the Iron Sharpens Iron Mixer party last week of August 2014, I did not hesitate to accept the invitation. While I have met a lot of local PR agencies, digital marketers, bloggers, readers and the like, I want to expand my network some more by looking into other social groups I have not paying much attention to.
When I looked at the poster they sent me I saw some individuals I already know in person so I decided to go.
ISI’s member demographic consists of mostly 20-50 year old corporate executives, artists, decision makers, expatriates and community attaches. These locals and internationals generally live in or work in Manila.
With the background check I did, I found out they are actually groups and individuals who help make the Philippine economy survive and thrive because they bring opportunities and business to the country. Contributing to making the Philippines the rising business haven in Asia.
Fortunately I had a pleasant time at the event meeting a lot of inspiring and enthusiastic people I would want to work with.
The event was held at A-Space in Makati a place full of potential and of great use for startups and SME who just need a small working space for meetings or events from time to time.
Here’s what transpired at the event in photos. So much happened at the event I can’t even put into words. (Pics grabbed from ISI)
A special thanks to Diego Ramos, Ari Bancale, Bryan Gallinger, Camille Escudero, Tom Gotuaco, Brian Tenorio, Olay Rullan, Doreen, Jana, people from Taclob, owners of BamboomPh, Shinagawa, Bambike, and Scott, Raisa for making my first ISI Networking Mixer event a pleasant one. Looking forward to seeing you all again soon.

It started with Burt, a man who was selling honey at the side of the streets and a Roxanne, a woman who was a Maine artist fell in love and decided to make candles out of the beeswax from Burt’s beehive. From there they earned their first $200 together when they joined a fair in 1984 and a year after they already made $20,000. The beginning was pretty auspicious but from the beeswax candle came the iconic beeswax candles that everyone loves.
It was in 1991 when Roxanne perfected a recipe that gave birth to the first Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm.
Yesterday, I was invited at Burt’s Bees 30th Birthday Party held at the Satin Room of Seda Hotel.
And as expected, the party was has a running nature theme filled with everything cute, organic, and golden yellow the color of Burt’s Bees!
Starting with these cute mason jars that we can put our own infused water!
All invited guest have their own jars to fill!
What a super cute Bee water container! and yes Honey in honey jars!
And what’s a party without a cake?
And baby cakes haha I mean cupcakes all made by Sonja

Now the table setup is really cute. We have an individual product chosen for us to try! Mine was the Almond and Buttermilk Lotion, I love the scent.
Then the program!

Happy 3oth Birthday again Burt’s Bees! Thank you for your all organic wonderful products that I am not afraid to put on my body! I wish you more years of bringing such products to the world!
At one point in everyone’s life, everyone wanted to be a model. The feeling of being look up to or being admired for your look is something everyone aspires for (even the intellectual ones). The Vitress Project Catwalk Event held at BGC (Bonifacio Global City) last night was everyone’s chance to strut their stuff and feel like runway model for a few minutes of their life. It was a fun event with lots of photo opportunities, paparazzi and everyone can take a selfie as well while enjoying the Vitress Catwalk.
It was the same catwalk where Vitress Brand Ambassadors Solenn Heusaff, Kim Jones and Gretchen Ho walked on as they showed their beautiful hair styled with Vitress!
Of course I and my friends did not miss the chance!
With the bunch of beauty bloggers waiting for the program to start
With mommy bloggers and Marcie Linao
At the end of the event, the media and bloggers were given a gift pack so we can beautify our hair more. This Hairagami is so interesting, is this a subtle way of telling me to grow my hair long again?

“Lalalalala, lalalalala, lalalalalalala, say it better on Line!”
With over 1 billion uploads to date and counting, Line Philippines held a thanksgiving party at the Makati Shangri-la last night with the launch of the Line Premium Calls, a service that allows users to make low-cost calls domestically and internationally to both landlines and mobile devices inside the Line App.
Mateo Guidicelli and Jessie Mendiola, who was present at the event last night encourages all the 490 million LINE users to try out the new app as they shared their experience with it saying it brought them closer to their loved ones, like friends and relatives abroad and they can’t believe how clear the calls are with Line Premium.
Can’t resist but post these cute candid shots of them. Cuteness!
Line Premium Call is just $11cents for Philippines calls on landline and $14cents on mobile. Jessie Mendez said she used this call for his special someone and has brought him and her more closer because of it.
Such a happy bunch: Brown, Jessie, Stephen Kang, George Kim, Mateo and Cony.
I also had my share of fun with the Line characters Cony and Brown, trying to third wheel on their secret date.
Luckily, Mateo Guidicelli came and stole me away from the two saying I don’t deserve to be a third wheel, I better stick with him instead. Haha!
If you haven’t got Line yet download now, we all can use one or more apps like this to make connections with our friends and loved ones easier wherever they are whenever, right?
What superlatives would you use to describe Gretchen Barretto?
Did you have confident, tough, survivor, and glamorous in mind? If you did so did Karat World that is why they pick her out as their latest brand ambassador/ endorser.
Just like Karat World, Gretchen is indeed Iconic when it comes to reinventing herself and still remain relevant.
Standing up in front of the media and bloggers invited to this exclusive launch at CAV in BGC, Gretchen Barretto allowed everyone to scrutinized the outfit she was wearing for the day.
“Look at my pants, does it look expensive? Not really, Top Shop lang yan,”
“How about my top, does it look expensive? Yes it is, Burberry yan eh,”
“How about my shoes, does it look expensive? Of course expensive talaga yan!”
“Eh, how about my earrings? Nope hindi sha expensive, Karat World yan! It looks expensive lang but it really is not. And that is how you should be dapat mukhang mamahalin. Or at least you can mix-match your attire to make it look expensive. Di naman kailangan lahat mamahalin,” she said.
“When I was tapped to be the brand ambassador for Karat World, I fell inlove with their jewelries. All girls gets excited with jewelries. I fell inlove with the design and I started asking for the price and I was surprised, they are not expensive at all!”
Karat World is releasing new designs of jewelries for the half of 2014 and what Gretchen was wearing at the event is just a preview.
Another preview of the jewelry design they will come out is the lovely heartlock bracelet they gave away to all those who attended the event.
Served in a tray by one of the waiters of CAV everyone was so happy to get the first dibs!
Here’s what the bracelet looks like,yes I opened my box right there and there and wear the bling right away!
The event was hosted by the lovely Gelli Victor and the Gorrisetti family led by Mr. Felix Gorrisetti owner of Karat World , his mom and siblings who has been in the jewelry business for 25 years with humble beginnings from Iloilo.
A scrumptious full course luncheon was also served at CAV prepared by Chef Marcus G. Feller.
