***Erzullie's new brand and fashion Icon***

Hey lovelies, 

Erzullie have chosen their new brand and  fashion Icons for 2011.

An icon is  someone who  can dress trendily but can also represent  their true personality and unique style plus an icon's style is simply timeless and unaffected by trends.

Fashion icons also have that inescapable confidence that can make anything they wear simply desirable.

On the other hand, being an Icon of a brand is really amazing especially Erzullie.

Erzullie is a high fashion plus size line that caters to female young adult (fashionista) subgroup. It aims to empower all plus size women of this category through uplifting their self-esteem and confidence by means of fashion. 

The line is available at BACKSTAGE STORE (SERENDRA),  SUENO, (MAKATI CITY) and CINDERELLA (GLORIETTA 3) . Erzullie is also currently working on/with The Ramp, SM and Ayala Malls for their concept stores. 


Guess what???
Luckily, I am one of the chosen ladies who will represent their  brand.

I already met Aries one of the designers and owners of the brand and I can't wait to work with them soon.

According to them, we will be having a photo shoot for their new catalogue. I am super dooper excited!!! 

The best part??? We will have the privilege to wear and endorse the clothes of Erzullie. 
I fell in love with their designs, which are especially made for plus- size women like me.

Thank you Aries, Berna and the whole team, can't wait to work with all of you soon! More power to Erzullie!!! :)

Thanks for reading!

***My pink skirt and a cup of coffee***

Hey lovelies,



How's your day?
I had a meeting with my new friend from client side in Ayala, Makati.
Thankfully, she set the meeting in a coffee shop which is my favorite. Instead of very formal transaction,
we had a super fun "chikahan". 
She's pretty and bubbly that's why our first meeting starts and ended well. 




I decided to wear a hot pink skirt and black top and heels.

Spotted by PONDS

Hi Lovelies,






I  would like to share my PONDS experience this weekend.
It was a lazy and  rainy afternoon that is why we decided to watch the X-MEN first class movie in Glorietta 4.
After I bought  our ticket for sure seats, all we need to do is to wait for them to let us come inside the cinema.
So while waiting ,I wander around the cinema lobby.
I wore a very laid back and simple attire. 
All I did was throw my comfy clothes together and just tied up my hair.
I also kept my make up very simple and natural. It was like I'm just watching TV at home.






Then suddenly a uniformed lady approached me, she said I'm one of the lucky chosen girls to be part of their Ponds Digital Community. They will send updates regarding their promos or events through email or text.
Which is kinda cool because I've been a Ponds user since I was in college, and I started with their Ponds flawless white products.










Do you know what's the best part???
Ponds gave me freebies!!!
They're giving away samples of Age Miracle Day and Night cream. 


The ingredients of Pond's Age Miracle are as follows: Water, Dimethicone crosspolymer/ Cyclopentasiloxane, Ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, Glycerin, Caprylyl Methicone, PEG-10 Dimethicone/ Disteardimonium hectorite/ Cyclopentasiloxane, Isomerized Linoleic Acid, Caprylic/ Capric Triglycerides, Zinc Oxide/ Triethoxycaprylylsilane, Fragrance, Tetradibutyl Pentaerithrityl Hydroxyhydrocinnamate, Stearic acid, cholesterol, Mica/ Titanium Dioxide, Tocopheryl Acetate, Bisabolol, BHT, DMDM Hydantoin/ Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Linoleic acid, Borago officinalis Seed Oil, Disodium EDTA, Retinyl Palmitate, Sodium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Butylene Glycol/ Carbomer/ Polysorbate 20/ Palmitoyl Oligopeptide/ Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Coriandrum sativum seed oil.


PREMATURE AGING


Do you know that the premature aging is really a big problem for many women around the world. There are several great factors which cause premature aging. If you know more about them, you will be able to take the needed treatments in order to keep your skin soft and smooth as long as you can. Check out some of the most important causes of premature aging and learn how you can easily avoid their dangerous effect.

The 20’s should be the time when you become more aware of the necessity of skin care.Developing good skin care habits during the twenties will preserve skin beauty and delay signs of aging later on.In your 20’s your main goal is preventing future damage. In addition, this age group is still susceptible to break outs and occasional acne problems.
Prevent Premature Aging:
Wear sunscreen to prevent the effects of photoaging such as wrinkles and age spots. Block UVAS and UVB rays. According to extensive research sun damage is responsible for 80-90 percent of skin aging. 

***LACK OF MOISTURE***
According to the scientists, about 70 % of our skin consist water. That is why you need constantly to hydrate it. The intake of a lot of fluids daily is not a guarantee that your skin will remain moisturize during the whole day. There is not any universal recommendation, because the skin abilities and properties of each person are very individual. Everything highly depends on what type of skin you have and how capable is your skin to retain the water in it.


What can you do about it ? The usage of moisturizing products is very essential if you want your skin to be healthy and shiny. There are 3 basic types of moisturizing agent which can help you to achieve your goals :-
  • clogging agents – such as Vaseline. They clog the pores of your skin and prevent the loss of moisture
  • moisturizing agents- such as glycerin. They will keep the water molecules on the top of the skin surface and prevent their disappearance.
  • bio dermal active agents – they will restore your skin and increase its ability to retain the moisture.
***STRESS***

Awww... I think this is usual to women and in our fast pace modern world stress becomes bigger and bigger factor for premature aging. It leads to many mental disorders and it is inevitable to hurt your skin condition and your health in general.
  • How dangerous is the stress?
    Stress will definitely speed up the premature aging. It will lead to the development of wrinkles, pigmentation, dryness and other problems.
  • What you can do
    Do not let your emotions ruin your health. Calm down, try meditation or yoga. There are many sports which will keep you busy and in great health and mental condition. You can also try many homemade stress relief techniques and trick. Do not give and your skin will be in perfect condition.
***ACCUMULATION OF TOXINS***
First of all you have to know that the accumulation of toxins in your body is inevitable process. There are several reasons which you can easily avoid and prevent. Do not intake too much medicines, do not eat junk food and do not drink and smoke.
  • How dangerous are the toxins for your body?
    They will definitely jeopardize your heath in general. You skin care efforts will not be very successful if your body has too much toxins. Your skin will lose its elasticity and its protective abilities.
  • What can you do ?
    Just try to avoid as much as possible all the factors which cause the accumulation of toxins in your body. Change your lifestyle and you will feel the difference for sure.
So all we need to do is take a good care of ourselves to avoid and prevent premature aging.

Stay away from too much sunlight, moisturize, hydrate, relax and have a healthy lifestyle.

***The ORANGE lover COUNTRY***

Hello lovelies, 



It was a bright and sunny day so I decided to wear something comfy and simple.
I’m also in the mood for oranges, I wore a carrot orange baby t-shirt and a Storm orange slipper and paired it with my brown hat.

On the other hand, aside from the mood to wear orange I'm also in the mood to eat and tackle  the benefits of eating the citrus fruit.
One of my favorite fruit and one of the most popular  choices for many people is the orange. Because they are widely available and typically are one of the more cost-effective fruits to purchase and they are loaded with great nutrition.
Not only are oranges a low calorie option for a snack for the dieter, but with their sweet taste, they make for the perfect substitute for those cravings when they strike.
Let’s take a quick look at the nutritional information in the orange so you know precisely what you’re getting when you choose to have this juicy fruit.





Major Nutrients Found In An Orange

Oranges are most well known for their vitamin C content, as many people will begin loading up at the first sign of a cold.
That’s not all their good for however. Oranges are also a rich source of dietary fiber, folate, vitamin B1, potassium, vitamin A, and have a small amount of calcium as well.
If you’re a vegetarian who doesn’t consume any dairy products, this added calcium will be a huge benefit for you.

Storing/Selecting

When selecting your oranges, you want to look for ones that are very full in shape and firm to touch. Avoid purchasing any oranges that show signs of discoloration or wrinkles.
Store in a cool dark place or in the bottom of the fridge for maximum freshness.

Eat It With:

Oranges are great served alone as a quick snack on the go or can be added to fruit salad or many different dessert dishes.

Burn Off An Orange

To burn off the number of calories in an orange you would have to do:
  • 16 minutes table tennis
  • 20 minutes mini golf
  • 10 minutes brisk walking

The black hour glass




My sister and I went to a movie house and had a sisters bonding moment.
At home, we took some photos of what we’ve worn that day. I decided to wear a simple black dress and paired it with a hot pink belt.



It was like a mini-photo shoot and we had sooo much fun together and after a long day we were knocked out on our bed with floral prints.




Thank you so much for viewing.
