A Love Letter for my Mom...

  Dear My Lovely Nanay,

       It's been days since You've gone... but it seems that you never left us, I always feel that you are beside and watching over us. I'm Still hurting about what happened to you, I know you have a serious Illness but I always think that you can get over with it because I believe that you are a Strong Woman. the day I Learned that you have little time left with us, I Felt like I'm an Incomplete person already. I cannot believe that you're leaving us anytime soon...I don't know how many times I cried, I'm in Denial stage, Flashback of memories came to my Mind, From the time that you told us how Tatay died and You felt devastated, but through your Strong Faith to our Lord God, You managed to raise us really well, You were there through the Happy and Trial Moments with our Family. You are our Shining Star through the Darkness, You are one of a perfect epitome of a Lovely and Caring Mom in the World.  I know you fought with your Illness with Bravery and Full of hope thinking that you can be with your Children and the rest of the Family for a Long Time but your Physical body is deteriorating, I know it's God's will, I should really know...

Strobing Guide for the Prettiest Glow - Guest Post by Sophia Smith

Last season was all about contouring, a makeup technique that consists of shadowing and highlighting to define and shape your features. However, many women complained that contouring takes too much time and makeup products. Luckily, there’s a new technique trending and it’s much simpler. And yes – today, we are talking about strobing.

What’s Strobing?

A word strobing comes from the verb to strobe, meaning to flash intermittently. Knowing this, it’s not hard to conclude that strobing has something to do with highlighting and illuminating. It’s a makeup technique that relies on highlighting products in order to enhance your natural features.

Strobing is a growing trend this season because it creates a more natural looks and takes far less time than contouring. Bear in mind that strobing doesn’t mean you need to cover yourself in highlighter and shine bright like a diamond. You should carefully accentuate a few areas on your face where the light wouldnaturally hit – brow bones, cheekbones, the center of the forehead, the bridge of your nose, the cupid’s bow, and chin. This will give you that fresh, dewy look. But, be careful - extra highlighting can lead to sweaty look, especially if you have oily skin.

How it’s done?

Before you start, prepare your skin by moisturizing it. Use an oil-free moisturizer if your skin is naturally oily. Makeup artists advise applying illuminating primer as the next step for maximum glow. Choosing a highlighter shade that matches your skin tone is a very important part. It should complement your natural tone for a subtle sheen. You should choose a cooler, pearl tone for pale skin and a warmer, golden pearl for dark skin.

Once you’ve made your choice, you can start strobing. Apply highlighter to the previously mentioned areas of your face. You can use cream, liquid, or powder highlighter, it’s up to you. Just make sure you don’t spread it all over your face – it’ll look messy. Also, in case your skin is oily, you might want to skip highlighting T-zone or whatever another part of your face is naturally shiny. Blend a little to make sure everything is in its place. And there you go – your skin looks perfect and has a healthy glow.

Some people claim strobing is contouring for lazy people, but that’s very debatable. Strobing emphasizes the best features of your face, and leaves imperfections in the background. You can finish off by applying mascara and some lipstick. If you want to achieve the no-makeup look, go for the hues that match your natural lip colour. Natural organic lipsticks are the best option since they’re free of any potentially skin-harming chemicals and consist of nourishing fresh ingredients.

Who’s Strobing?

Although Kim Kardashian popularized the contouring makeup technique, it’s her sister that mastered the strobing – Kendall Jenner. The great thing about this trend is that it looks good on any face shape.

Strobing also works for any skin type or colour, so no wonder that both Katy Perry and Beyoncé can pull it off perfectly. Beyoncé took it one step further – she used strobing to highlight her cleavage so maybe that’s going to be the next trend.

Celebrity or not, strobing works like a charm for everyone. Contouring may have strong ambassadors among celebrities, but strobing is the technique that ruled the runway shows this season. And although it’s a relatively new thing, more and more celebrities are into it. But, more importantly, it’s far simpler than contouring. With a little effort and just a few beauty products, your skin can become bright and radiant. And looking pretty without applying tons of product – that’s the dream for this generation of women.

Kid's Field Trip at Ocean's Adventure and Dinosaur's Island

  I Love Kid's School Field Trip because I find it really fun and also serves as a Bonding for me and my Kids. Last January 21, I was finally able to attend the field trip of my kids and took a Notification Leave at my work., The Destination was at Ocean Adventure- Subic Bay, Olongapo and Dinosaur's Island- Mabalacat, Pampanga . My Two Kids were really excited because My Son, Arquin was a fan of Dinosaurs and Nikki loves to travel and wants to see a new scenery.

   It was a 5 hours long Drive away from Las Piñas where we reside and We Left as Early as 4AM but it was not really an exhausting trip because the bus that the school rented was a comfortable one and we were able to sleep for awhile.

Best Hair Trends for Spring/Summer 2016 - Guest Post by Peter Minkoff

  Hair is not just an accessory for your head. It is a fashion statement, reflecting your personality and self- Confidence. There is much more to it than just cuts, colors and styles, sometimes hairstyles can be true works of art. It is no wonder than that hair trends change alongside fashion and move at the same pace as the world goes round. And like fashion, they have their own seasons. The year behind us was defined by contouring and ombre, but 2016 brings with it whole new set of hair trends which will blow you away.

Here are some of the best hairstyles we will have the chance to see in 2016.

1. Bobs to Rule Them All

Let us be honest, this classic cut has endured the peaks and valleys of popularity, but it was always present. Many stylists predict that the classic bob will be the biggest trend of the year, and really, you can never go wrong with timelessness. A bob with a twist, or shall we call it, the “wob”, is another trend to try out the upcoming season. The soft wavy bob, as seen on Kristen Stewart, will be a major hit.

2. Au Naturel Hues

Say goodbye to Katy Perry’s shades of purple, green and bubble gum pink, and hello to natural hair hues which will complement your beauty. Artificial-looking and conspicuous hair colors will remain in the past. The future brings natural looking colors and healthy hair. The best thing about it is that you do not have to visit your stylist to accomplish that look. Just dye your hair with subtle shades or do not dye it at all and take care of it with hair styling products from Theorie with essential ingredient for healthy hair – argan oil.

3. You Go, Warrior!

Warrior pony tail is a great thing to wear this spring/summer. It is simple, sleek and stylish, and the perfect salvation for the bad hair day. Just use some hair gel to pull your hair back into a high pony tail and add some band to step up the game. You can even wear it to an evening event and glam it up a bit with hair accessories.

4. Let’s Twist Again

Twisted buns are simple hairstyles which can be easily recreated by real women at home. The look dominated the runways from Zac Posen’s to Jason Wu’s, in its many varieties. The one thing that remained the same is that all of them were nape-levels. Low buns are the way to go; top knots are out. It is allowed to get a little creative with your low bun and add some braids, for that extra “wow”.

5. Back to School

Remember those annoying pigtails your mom made you wear to school? Well, in 2016, they are back with revenge. Now, they are worn low and close together and when combined with goth lipstick, chockers or heavy metal accessories they can be much cooler than the one you wore on the schoolyard. If you do not trust us, trust Marni, Giles, Miu Miu and Chanel, because their fashion shows made pigtails famous again.

6. Chica Chica Boom Chic

Spring/Summer 2016 is calling you to be brave enough to get on the dance floor with bold hair accessories similar to those worn by Portuguese Brazilian samba singer/dancer and Broadway actress, Carmen Miranda in the 1940’s. Do not worry, if you are not feeling bold enough to tuck in a cluster of bright tropical flowers in your hair, you can simply wear a feathery headpiece on the side, like the models at Diane fon Furstenberg did or you can go all the way and add some fruit into the mixture like Dolce & Gabbana’s models.

It is clear by now that 2016 is ready for you. The only question remaining is are you ready for it? Visit your hairstylist as soon as possible and find out!
