I have a long-time indulgence and that is pampering one of the most important parts of my body : my hands. With these pair of small but sturdy hands, I nurture my family and I accomplish most of my goals through the works that I do through them. And so my hands are worthy of my utmost care and attention that’s why most of my most treasured skin care products are hand creams. In this part of my blog, I wish to share this simple passion. And if you are lucky, I’ll send you the hand cream I’ve just reviewed. Let’s...

I’ve known the power of coconut oil since I was young. It was kind of a legacy of my Lola Adelina who taught me how to use extracted coconut oil on my hair to make my scalp healthy and my hair shiny. I still do that once in a while and I am also trying to teach the same to my daughters who have thick hair. But I found out that coconut extract is not only for hair. It’s also good for the skin. And I’ve seen it in action in Cocoline Naturals Body Wash, Body Lotion and Soap. Cocoline Naturals Coconut Milk Licorice Intense...

Every mom deserves a treat like this, a facial spa with your closed friends inside the spa room, and then a refreshing and nutritious meal after the spa session. I experienced all these, thanks to Diana Stalder and her mom, who owns Diana Stalder by Dermline and DS Cafe. The cafe is located just within the area of their branch in Gateway Mall, Araneta Center. I can still remember that session, when I was still whispering to myself, “Ah, this is life.” After the mask sparty at DS Cafe / Diana Stalder By Dermaline I can hardly...

Hello Kitty is the only cat I ever adored. I haven’t been a cat person ever since (I’m a puppy person) but when it comes to Hello Kitty, I just swoon.

Hello Kitty fan or not, you’ll find this collection very much appealing. You’ll see why.Hello Kitty Perfume – You will love the smell as I did. It’s both floral and fruity, but not too sweet...

It’s seldom that you receive a gift like this. Something which can make you swoon because you feel special upon receiving it. I wish every deserving woman in the world can get a box like this. Why? Because being a woman is not easy. In this world when there are a thousand kind of standards to meet, we can hardly keep up even with just a dozen.But who said we even have to follow standards, right? It’s exactly what Dove’s #RealBeauty Is Universal is all about. That we should celebrate our uniqueness, our own beauty, and...

Itchy scalp and dandruff had been our ongoing problem at home. My husband fortunately has a healthy scalp and he has less hair (semi-kalbo). But me, I have long hair which is not thick naman but I have this hormone issues when my scalp gets too dry due to stress or the weather. My eldest daughter has a very thick hair and she sweats a lot. Most of the times, I see her scratching her head and told her to make sure that she’s washing her hair and scalp properly. Sometimes, the dandruff will go away, sometimes our scalps are itchy and...

Makeups may not be my thing but feeling good, looking good and smelling good are essential for me. But as a work at home mom, you can do only a little bit for yourself in a day and weekends are usually spent with the family. Bless online shopping because in a way, it extends the hours of my busy days when I can decide for myself  and do what I love with the money I earned from my own labor. Haha, yes, that’s the beauty of being a work at home mom. You get to be a mom, the best job in the world, and at the same time, work your butt...

Being beautiful and feeling beautiful can be as easy or as difficult as women can think of it. In as much as “beauty is in the eyes of the beholder”, I also believe that  beauty is in the heart of the “beholdee” (I’m not sure if there’s a word like that, but you know what I mean). Although I can see that many women still perceive beauty as having that svelte body and pretty face, I believe that most of us had already gone past this superficiality.As a mom of two young ladies, it is a challenge for...
