#BeYOUtiful at AVON's 40th Anniversary (August 29, 2018)

Happy 40th, AVON Philippines! At this point, I think it's safe to say every Philippine household has a resident that is either a past or present AVON lady. My mom herself used to be an AVON lady back then! I also just filed in my application to be an AVON lady at this event, so once that's done, I'll also be an AVON lady. 

Why are there AVON ladies everywhere? Simple. AVON brings in good, wholesome money. My mom would recall that she was able to save up for quite a lot of things thanks to selling AVON during her younger days. With the inflation rates going crazily high, and the prices of all consumer goods skyrocketing as of late, it's a relief that AVON remains to be a steadily good source of income. They provide you a 25% discount so the margins are good, and more discounts once you become a sales leader and recruit AVON ladies under your wing. They throw in a lot of incentives and rewards, and unlike most direct selling companies these days, you need not shell out on a specific amount of products to apply as an AVON lady. You only need to pay for your catalogues. This is why if you're thinking of doing direct selling in light of the wonky economy, AVON is a highly advisable company to apply for. 

Be sure to look out for their next recruitment caravans at Sequoia Hotel on September 6 and 7, at Megatrade Hall on September 13 and 14, at Radisson Blu Hotel Cebu on September 14 and 15, and at Apo View Grand Hotel Davao on September 21 and 22.

Watsons Make Time For #MeTime (August 16, 2018)

Watsons is speaking our language! 

We're now in this apocalyptic era of death by overwork, and the recent crazy inflation means that we cannot not work for a day, at all. It's really very easy to get burned out by what's happening, and as many of you know by now (yes we're learning together), a burnt out person is an unproductive person. To stay sane, it's important to have Me Time. As clichéd as it sounds, it really is a necessity these days to have Me Time. It's no longer kaartehan––Me Time is a way to cope with apocalyptic urban life, because when we're feeling our best, we can also do our best and be our best selves for the people around us.

Althea Real Fresh Skin Detoxer Rose and Green Tea Review #AltheaAngels

Althea Korea Real Fresh Skin Detoxer

Althea + Get It Beauty= The collab of the century! 

ICYMI, Althea just launched their Real Fresh Skin Detoxer in cooperation with Get It Beauty! 

This is technically the first product of its kind in the whole world, as it's a 10-second wash off non-clay-non-sheet lathering mask. Wah that was a mouthful! The geniuses in Althea HQ felt that given today's very hectic way of life, people should have a cleanser that took so little time to use, but was made with the best that nature could offer, and provided superior moisturizing and revitalizing to tired skin. These Detoxers are basically what they came up with with this concern in mind. 

Their Detoxers come in Rose and Green Tea, with the Rose as the AM item and Green Tea as the PM item. The Rose one helps with balancing the skin to be ready for makeup and a long day ahead, while the Green Tea one helps to get rid of impurities after a tiring day. Okay, let's break it down now...

My Le Jardin Retrouvé Les 3 Petits Flacons Experience

Le Jardin Retrouvé's Les 3 Petits Flacons

I swear! It's like stepping onto a French garden, even if I'm in the Philippines! Indeed, the French take their perfumery so seriously that we often see French perfume variants for fabric softeners. I consider myself highly privileged to have tried out Le Jardin Retrouvé's Les 3 Petits Flacons. The perfumery by Yuri Gutsatz goes waaay back from 1975, and today, the brand stands for creative freedom in fragrance arts. Le Jardin Retrouvé is proud to be an independent fragrance house in a world of fragrance behemoths that churn out cookie cutter fragrances.

Happy 7th Anniversary, Orogold Philippines! (August 1, 2018)

 Who knew?

Time went by so quickly for all of us that no one realized that Orogold Philippines is already at its 7th year! They have already done so much in the past 7 years in revolutionizing what luxury skincare truly means, and there is still plenty more good stuff to come.

To thank all their stakeholders, from suppliers and partners, to loyal customers, and to members of the press and media they've worked with, they hosted this thanksgiving event yesterday at their Resorts World flagship store.

I'm An Althea Angel!!!

Wah! Wahhh! Waaaaaaahhh!!! 

It is with much excitement that I would like to share to y'all that I'm an Althea Angel!!! Althea Angel today, Victoria's Secret Angel tomorrow! No, just kidding hahaha. 

I am so excited to be an Althea Angel as it feels so full circle ish to me. I remember being one of the first Philippine bloggers approached for their Philippine launch. From the first transaction, I was already so impressed that my items came to my house incredibly fast and that I didn't need to go to the post office. To add, the pristine pink box stood out among all the tattered, taped, and torn brown boxes most packages from abroad came in at the time. It feels natural to be promoting them further as an Angel, as I myself have been a regular shopper at Althea since its launch. The healthy 'Althea Korea' tag here on blog will serve as the testament to how much I love them!

Thoughts On Plana Forma

Well well!!! I did Plana Forma for 2 months, from December 2017 to February 2018. In the two months, I was able to observe how the system works in general and why it didn't work for me in general. Don't get me wrong, it's a great exercise system, but it just wasn't my cup of tea. All of us, we learn differently, and that also carries over a lot to the exercise formats we thrive in, and ones we don't thrive in.

So I wanted to create a post that will chronicle in what ways did it work and not work for me.
