BURBERRY Body Tender Fragrance Launch
Last March 7, I was invited to grace the launch of Burberry’s new fragrance to the Burberry Body Collection.
This is the Burberry Body Tender, its scent combines the relaxed, playful attitude of the Burberry girl with the energy of the brand’s London hometown. Understated and feminine, the British scent is a light spirited expression of the iconic Burberry Body fragrance. Its sparkling scent brings together a fresh surge of lemon, dewy English rose and white jasmine against a warm, effortlessly feminine soft base.
It was a transparent and sparkling interpretation of the original Burberry Body.
Lots of pretty faces from the blogging community and media graced the event, enjoying the scent of Burberry Body Tender over cocktails.
Then the unveiling of Burberry Body Tender after the toast.
I find it very feminine with a touch of sophistication. So, why make Burberry Body Tender and the inspiration behind it? The Burberry Body Tender is inspired by the freshness of youth, energy, hope, excitement, natural beauty, radiance, the English morning dew, English roses.
And according to Christopher Bailey, Burberry Chief Creative Officer, “Burberry Body was always about creating something that captures all the different characteristics of the Burberry girl. With Body Tender, we wanted to explore and bring out the softer, more playful sides of her – capturing this light femininity in the scent as well as the campaign. Cara’s natural beauty and vibrant energy lit up alongside London’s magnificent architecture.”
Yes, the face of Burberry Body Tender is Cara Delevingne.
An established, close member of the Burberry family, this is Cara’s first fragrance campaign, shot in her hometown. Cara featured in her first Burberry campaign in 2011 and has since been the face of Burberry Beauty, regularly appearing on the Burberry runway and in Burberry campaigns.
Let me show you a closer look of the new line of Burberry Body, the Burberry Body Tender Eau De Toilette (EDT) for Women.
Feminine presentation of the iconic Burberry Body glass bottle, designed by Burberry Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey. The bottle contains a rose-coloured juice. The silver bottle cap has an embossed check and hot foil stamped silver branding. The outerpack has a rose-coloured folding board box with blind embossed check on top and embossed die stamp foiled silver branding.
The fragrance will be launched this March 2013 with prices, 85ml: P4,898, 60ml: P3,898, 35ml: P2,898.
It will be available in all Burberry Boutiques and selected major department stores: Rustans, SM, Robinsons and Landmark.
The launch was a success and I’m so glad to have my own Burberry Body Tender Bottle after since I fell in love with it the moment I smelled its scent. It’s very light and enchanting. Really tender. I think I just found a new scent that I’ll forever love.
Here is a list of the Burberry Body Collection: Burberry Body Tender Eau de Toilette: 85ml, 60ml, 35ml, Burberry Body Tender Milk 60ml, Burberry Body Eau de Parfum Intense, Burberry Body Eau de Parfum, Burberry Body Eau de Parfum Purse Spray, Burberry Body Eau de Toilette, Burberry Body Mist, Burberry Body Oil, Burberry Body Milk

FILA Polo Cup 2013 Goes Brazilian
I was invited to attend the Fila Polo Cup 2013 which was held last February 10 at The Manila Polo Club at Forbes Park. I’m so glad to have witnessed this event because not only did I get to watch an exciting sport but also enjoy the great theme this year which is Brazilian Carnival.
Love the setting of the Manila Polo Club, with all the colors, masks and everything to bring to life their Mardi gras theme.
The Low Goal game started at 2:00 pm, the High Goal game at 4:00 pm, and the festivities at 6:00 pm with more glitz than ever before.
The event was hosted by Brazil-born actor and FILA endorser Fabio Ide, with entertainment provided by Guarana, the Escola de Samba de Manila Dancers, the Maracuja Dancers and Talentadong Pinoy Hall-of-Famer Astroboy.
Manila’s finest graced the event, including FILA endorsers Georgina Wilson, Borgy Manotoc, Tim Yap, and FILA’s first couple, the ever gorgeous President and CEO of FILA Philippines, Cris Albert and husband and company Chairman Butch Albert who also celebrated his birthday.
Club Muah Girls with Tessa Prieto Valdez
Anton San Diego, Cris Albert, Andrew Wolff and Chris Everingham

Miss World 2012, Wenxia Yu
The entertainment was prepared to bring the concept of full authentic Mardi Gras Festival. The Escola de Samba de Manila, founded by the same minds behind Guarana, had taken unto itself the task of bringing Brazilian Carnival to the event with their bright festive colors and infectious pulsating beat of Bossa Nova and Samba.
Fila Polo Cup chose Brazilian Carnival as its theme this year because when it comes to emotion, color, atmosphere, and sheer over-the-top joyous celebration, nothing beats the Brazilian method. This is a perfect welcome for FILA’s bigger direction in 2013, a new era for the brand that features innovation while still taking its cues from a rich and storied past. FILA is the oldest and wisest of the brands, and throughout its history, it has stayed true to boldness, color, and design. Fans can look forward to more of this, but taken to a whole new level.
Here are some of the people who also enjoyed the event and partied the night away.
Cristalle Henares, Cristine Cuevas, Cris Albert, Jeena Lopez and Wanda Louwallien

Congratulations to the winners of the Fila Polo Cup 2013!
FILA AMbassadors, Tim Yap, Georgina Wilson, Borgy Manotoc and Fabio Ide.
New brands and new lines equal a new level of excitement for FILA die-hards and those just discovering the marque. The revamped range includes sport and lifestyle masterpieces for everyone.
FILA EVEREST– The old adage goes “tough times never last but tough people do,”. Everest is a no-nonsense brand that believes in dreaming big and doing big. It is built for those who lead the extreme active lifestyle, who regularly tread on the cutting edge, the nature adventurer; yet it remains comfortable, allowing more freedom of movement without sacrificing durability. Lightweight but protective, Everest shoes are designed to meet the performance needs of the adventurous.
FILA OUTDOORS – More than a brand, Outdoors is an answer to a question. It is a response to one of the deepest and most basic of human needs, the desire to bring back the simple joys and pleasures of childhood. It is the direct result of the blood that runs through our veins, and the revolutionary return of the Pinoy. It is what FILA consumers want and need.
FILA TIVA – The Heart of Tiva is escape, a yearning for love, light, freedom. It is for the girl who takes the road less traveled. The Soul of Tiva is the mantra “follow the light.” It represents a new lifestyle and culture that loves the open sea, freedom, and nature. It follows alternative sports like surfing, diving and kiteboarding, but with less emphasis on performance and more detail on the soul.
FILA FREESTYLE – A new hyper brand forged by the classic timelessness of FILA Vintage and the irresistible call of FILA Outdoors. A brand full of strength and personality, it screams youth at its prime but reflects a respect for the classics. Freestyle is for the Old Timeless, Livewire, Agro, Emo, Creative fun-seeker. Freestyle is anything but shy.
FILA believes that sport is an artform, a combination of beauty, luxury, and passion, form and movement. Sport can be viewed as a painting in a gallery or a ballet in a theatre. Sport is inspiring and inspired. As a company founded in Italy, FILA, more than anyone, recognizes the art of sport, the importance of design, and the feel uniquely tied to it.
Fila shops are located at the following branches: SM Mall of Asia, SM Megamall, SM Cebu, Ayala Malls Glorietta, Ayala Malls Trinoma, Ayala Malls Pavilion, Ayala Malls Market! Market!, Ayala Malls Cebu, Ayala Malls Marquee Pampanga, Robinsons Galleria, Robinsons Ermita, Robinsons Cebu, Robinsons Iloilo, Robinsons Bacolod, Robinsons Lipa, Robinsons Metroeast, Robinsons Dumaguete, Robinsons Tacloban, Robinsons General Santos, Robinsons Ilocos Norte, Limketkai Cagayan de Oro, Island City Mall Bohol, Festival Mall Alabang, Ever Commonwealth, Ever Cainta, D’Mall Boracay, Gaisano Capital Tacloban, Gaisano Capital Ormoc, Gaisano Capital Kalibo, NCC Mall Davao, NCC Mall Tagum, and LCC Legazpi.

BLO Hearts Manila!
You already read my blog post of how excited I am that Blo is finally coming to Manila, with Blo Rockwell as their first-ever branch in Philippines and in Asia! And now that I’ve finally tried their services, I’m so happy to get the chance to finally share them to you! Read my previous post here.
For those who don’t know yet, BLO is America’s Original Blow Dry Bar. Scissors are verboten. Dye, ditto. No cuts, no color: Just WASH BLOW GO.
I was so thrilled when I got the invite to grace their Rockwell VIP Preview. Not only did I get to see the salon first-hand but I also got to try their lovely services before everyone else in the Metro, so I think it’s just fair that I’ll share why deserve to be here and what you can expect from them.
First thing I noticed upon seeing Blo is its very inviting atmosphere. There is Pink everywhere which makes it very appealing especially to the girls. I immediately thought that this is the perfect place that can make girls pretty!
Let me take you to a virtual tour around Blo Rockwell,
What do you think? Besides from pretty-looking, the place is really clean and comfortable. They also have great tools that your hair needs and only uses quality hair products like L’Oreal.
And that’s not it, their hair stylists are the best! They know how to handle hair well and they know what will look good on you. I also notice that they work so fast! So if you hate the hassle you get from some salons, you’ll never experience that here.
I bet by now you are already dying to know their lovely services and how much they cost so let me no longer keep the wait. You can choose a hairstyle you want from their hair menu or you can go for what you want and let the stylist do all the tricks. I got myself some big curls.
Here are the pretty hairstyles from the Blo Hair Menu,
Blo in-bar: wash. blow. go.
Their signature services, styles, from classic to rock all for only Php500
- Red Carpet
This classic blo out will make the paparazzi snap. Smooth tresses with lots of body and gentle arcs toward the neckline. Monroe at her heartbreaking best. A must-do for cocktails or an espresso induced shopping spree.
- Executive Sweet
We’re talking skyscraper straight. Our best irons are on the case. This hair means business and is de rigueur for the power meeting, the “time for a raise” talk or a boardroom presentation.
- Hunt Club
The perfect pony. Every little girl dreamed of getting one for her birthday and this time you get exactly what you ask for. A polished look for an impromptu polo match or just because.
- High Society
This coif is guaranteed to get you whatever you want. How do we explain? A high altitude tornado tamed to perfection. Channel your inner Hepburn for Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The perfect accompaniment to a little black dress (sigh).
- Holly Would
Fun and flirty with plenty of curl and bounce. Our Blo scientists discovered that this mane will make boys experience a loss of coordination and weakness in the knees. If you want your date to pick up the bill, this is the style of choice.
- Sex, hugs and rock & roll
More rocker-chic than rocker-chick. Tap into your alter ego for a night on the town. Tousled, deliciously disheveled. Cue smoke machines. Curl power.
- Boho Braid
A twist on our signature blo out. Literally. A sleek, full bodied style interlaced with woven locks. Go from good to Goddess. An ideal pick for a day at the beach or a walk in the park.
Lovely hairstyles, right? But just in case you’re looking for more,
Blo in-bar continued
- blo out with bonded extensions - Php800
Craving a blo to tame your extra thick mane? We’ve got the best brushes on-hand.
- blo out with deep conditioning treatment - Php800
Want to treat your tresses? We’ve got the perfect solution to nourish your locks.

- blo girl - Php300
Out of the sandbox but not quite at the mall? If you qualify for the cushion, you are a Blo Girl.
- blo bro - Php300
Even dudes, like, dig dryers. Think a 20-minute head massage, wash and style. You know you want a bro job!
Sounds like they have everything in-store already for our beloved hair. And for the guys of our lives, too! Sounds like a good pre-date place!
And guess who I brought with me during the VIP Preview?
Dunkin’ Derek this Valetine’s Day
I’m so glad to have been invited to spend one afternoon with my favorite donut, Dunkin and with the company of the very-handsome, Derek Ramsay. Who would say no to that?
So, I attended Dunkin’ Donuts Philippines Press Conference with my fellow bloggers and media people to see what they have in store for us this coming Valentine’s Day.
And of course, the event was graced by none other than the new face of Dunkin, Derek Ramsay, to personally introduce to us Dunkin’s surprises this February and more.
Derek Ramsay has this to say about his new love, “There’s only Dunkin’ Donuts for me. Many sweet things have come and gone in my life, but Dunkin’ Donuts lingered with me through the years. This is not just a brand I endorse; this is a product I truly enjoy, donuts that I crave for regardless, whether I’m here or abroad.”
The new face of Dunkin’ Donuts, the country’s leading donuts, coffee, and baked goods chain, is a hot new offering that’s sure to salivate everyone’s taste buds – literally and figuratively. Derek Ramsay kicked off his endorsement with the P199 a dozen promo of Dunkin’ Donuts Classics, which is extended until February 10, 2013. But there’s more to love, especially for the month of hearts. From February 1-15, Ramsay highlights his longstanding love affair with Dunkin’ Donuts, as we see more of him in two specially designed Valentine’s boxes: Dunkin’ Hearts and Premium Donuts Valentine box.
“There’s a special place in my heart for Dunkin’ Donuts, and it has been a constant companion through many occasions – as a child, as a student, through heartaches, and yes, even on Valentine’s Day. In fact, whoever is with me has to enjoy a bite too. There is a comforting simplicity to the Dunkin’ Donuts Classics that keeps me coming back for more. This Valentine’s, Derek suggests that instead of taking your date to a fancy restaurant, why not simply cook for her? And off course, cap the night with a box of Dunkin’ Hearts or spoil her a little with a selection of Premium Donuts.
Derek with his favorite flavor of Dunkin, Boston Kreme
The Premium Donuts line was introduced to cater to the increasing sophisticated palates. With over 18 Premium Donut flavors to choose from, there’s sure to be one for any discriminating sweet tooth.
Dunkin’ Premium Donuts
Dunkin’ Classic Donuts
Dunkin’ Donuts has been in the Philippines for over 31 years, and has continuously evolved to be an inextricable part of Filipinos’ lives and memories. The children who grew up with the Classics varieties, now have more sophisticated palates, perfectly addressed by the Premium Donuts line. So there’s a Dunkin’ Donut variant for every occasion – the Classics, when you want comfortable, nostalgic goodness, and Premium Donuts when you want to just spoil yourself a little.
And with Derek offering you a bite of Dunkin’ Donuts, how can you say no?

We got ourselves a new friend, hi Derek!

Check out this treat from Dunkin’ Donuts this month of hearts. 9 Heart-shaped Dunkin’ Donuts for only P100! Available at DD outlets nationwide until Feb 15, 2013.
And Dunkin’ doesn’t only serve yummy donuts,
Tried their muffins and they are really rich and very flavorful!
You can enjoy these refreshers at affordable prices, no wonder Dunkin’ Donuts have been the first choice of people where to spend an amazing afternoon and chill.
There’s only Dunkin’ for Derek Ramsay. Do you have that in common?
Enjoy the love month!

Louise delos Reyes Bloggers Event
It’s not every day that you get to know more personally a celebrity over a relaxing day at the spa with your fellow bloggers, so the moment I got the invite I immediately said Yes.
The celebrity I’m talking about? You might know her from Tween Hearts and most especially her lead roles in Alakdana and One True Love, among others.
Yes, she’s the young actress Louise delos Reyes.
The event was held at Nail Spa, SM North The Block. As normal celebrities, I expected her to arrive late but she was on time and actually arrived earlier than other bloggers. And that was just one of the many great characteristics I noticed from spending the afternoon with her.
Let me tell you some information about Louise delos Reyes first before sharing with you what amazing new things we discovered about her.
After earning an acting nomination a few years ago for her work in an indie film, 19-year old Louise delos Reyes fast-moved on to even greater heights, conquering mainstream audiences with her tremendous success on national TV. Everything was capped by the watershed triumph of the TV series “One True Love” where she and screen partner Alden Richards blossomed into the current generation’s latest well-loved romantic duo.
Louise as “One True Love’s Elize Samonte provided the turning point to her career as it transformed her from a young face to a cute adult whose fan base instantly doubled. Big thanks to her leading man Alden for serving as that other half to make the picture whole.
This groundbreaking Louise-Alden team-up may have to pay its homage to their work in “My Beloved” where she as Grace Lucban showcased once again the good vibes coming through when the two of them are together on screen. The chemistry certainly reached its harvest period on “One True Love” which even GMA Network, by virtue of its success and public demand, decided to re-run in late October last year.
Louise is also best known for playing Adana in “Alakdana.” She also earned a Best New Movie Actress nomination from the PMPC for her acting in Peque Gallaga’s “Agaton and Mindy.” Later she starred in “Pilyang Kerubin” and became one of the “Tween Hearts” on TV and on the big screen.
She appeared in a number of “Spooky Nights” episodes, as well as some for “Maynila.” All the while her chemistry with Alden whom she has been working in tandem with for quite a number of times is evolving into a mighty force to be soon unleashed by “One True Love.”
Louise, her acting proven, has definitely the looks to boot. Prior to being seen on GMA, she won in beauty contests like the Ms. Lyceum of the Philippines University-Cavite in 2010. Three years earlier she bagged crowns as participant in Ms. Teen Philippines International-Luzon, Ms. Jag Teen, and Ms. Teen Super Ferry.
With all those in her bag, who would’ve thought she has a lot more to offer.
Me, together with other bloggers, really enjoyed her company over Spa and everything she shared about her. Let me tell you some of those that you might not yet know about her.
She is currently studying at Lyceum of the Philippines Cavite and will be graduating in April with a bachelor’s degree in Foreign Services. She chose this course because she already wants to have a degree and may already work if ever she won’t be pursuing Law.
She also has a big heart for the Arts which started with sketching when she was a little girl, she competes in her high school for various arts competitions and is also good at declamation.
On celebrity crushes, she told us she likes Gerald Anderson because she finds him very cute (“kasi ang cute cute niya…”) but when she already saw him she no longer had a crush on him. She says cheerfully that she’s like that when it comes to her crushes and she doesn’t know why. But one guy she had a crush on that never faded even though she already saw him is Chris Tiu. “Siya yung crush ko na kahit ilang beses ko makita crush ko pa rin.” She also admires Chad Michael Murray and Zayn Malik of One Direction.
I also noticed that her outfit is well put together so I asked her if she has a stylist, she said doesn’t have and her mom is the one who serves as her stylist. She always consults her whenever they shop especially on what to buy. Speaking of shopping, Louise is not a big spender. She prefers shopping at Department Stores and Landmark, her most expensive clothes she says are from Forever21 because she thinks that she can buy the same expensive clothes from big brands on cheaper prices on department stores. A trait of her which I love!
And when asked where she buys her accessories, she told us she goes to Divisoria for them since they are very cheap there. She just wears disguises every time. No wonder she saved a lot and had already managed to buy a car for herself.
Her style is also constantly changing, she can wear a girly outfit today and a rocker style tomorrow. It all depends on how she feels and what she wants because she told us that if there’s a word that would describe her it would be bipolar or random. Like in her choice of music, she can listen to Nicki Minaj when she feels happy and Taylor Swift the next when she wants to be a man-hater.
Another thing you’ll notice with her, is her healthy and fair skin. When asked if she has beauty secrets or the like, she just told us that she has nothing special and she just uses baby products on her skin. She also laughingly told us that she doesn’t know if she has a healthy living because she loves fast food especially Mcdonald’s.
She also is good at sports and part of her school’s varsity team when she was in high school. She has three dogs at home, a Shih Tzu, Chow Chow and Japanese Ppitz that she sometimes brings to set with her. Louise also has a lot of friends that are out of show business since she believes that it’s very hard to find real friends in the industry but she is very hands on with her fans and fan clubs.
When asked who she wants to be paired next in her future projects, she don’t actually have a particular choice. She told us she can handle anyone. And on dream roles, she wants to be challenged and play roles that will make her think how she would portray it like a character with a physical illness, psychotic or mentally-impaired. She likes to be challenged! Her favorite actresses are Maricel Soriano, Jean Garcia and Agot Isidro.
With all her achievements, she still has a lot of dreams and the most apparent of those is that she wants to dwell on businesses and would like to open her own milk tea shop soon.

We really enjoyed talking to her the whole afternoon, she is very game and if there’s one thing I would describe her, it’s down-to-earth. She always has a smile on her face and makes conversations more delightful. It was such a pleasure to meet and get to know her. We all felt like we’re just her friends hanging out and enjoying the day at the Spa getting our nails done while exchanging stories and laughs.
With her undoubtedly great talent and amazing personality, Louise delos Reyes is definitely one to watch out for!

Araneta Dress Me Up 2: Dairy Queen’s Black Forest Launch
“A Fashion Event for the Ice Cream that is always in Style.”
It’s not everyday that you get a chance to style models for a fashion show so when I received this amazing email from Kath of Araneta Center, I immediately said ‘Yes’ without second thoughts. I have to tell you that this has been one of the best events I attended so far because it’s just not your ordinary event.
I was so glad to have spent this day with my awesome blogger friends, the call time was early and it was a tiring day but everything was definitely worth it.
Let me tell you more about this event, this was actually the second installment of Araneta Center’s Dress Me Up competition. I remember supporting some of my blogger loves the first time and now, I’m so glad to be a part of it! For this season’s Dress Me Up, bloggers are paired and we will be styling our very own model (Bb. Pilipinas ladies and male models from Next) with clothes from various participating brands from Araneta Center with the theme black forest. This is because this event was held in partnership with Dairy Queen for the official launch of their newest flavor for the holidays, Black Forest.
Before the launch, we have the day to pull out clothes from the brands and do the photo shoots. Check out our preparation:
Then, the event started. Our models will be walking the runway wearing clothes styled by the bloggers and we will also be walking with them for the finale and explain why we chose the outfit.

Behind the Lesley Mobo S/S 2013 Fashion Show
London-based Filipino designer Lesley Mobo presented his collection in a gala fashion show held at SM Mall of Asia Arena last October 29, 2012 as the finale show for the Philippine Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2013.
The venue was huge and unlike any other fashion shows before, the setting was a dramatic candle-lit dinner by Margarita Forés which the invited guests enjoyed before the show started. It would really be amazing to witness a show like this but to be a part of it is beyond words.
I’ve always been inspired by Filipino fashion designers conquering the international fashion scene and Lesley Mobo is one of them. I was so grateful to Sir Noel Manapat and Nio Manzano for asking me to help assist on the show. This was my third show being a stylist assistant for Team Manapat and they were the best experiences I had.
Check out some photos from the backstage before the show,
What do you think of the looks?
It was such a fulfilling feeling having to be a part of a show like this which received tons of applause to well-known figures from different industries in the Philippines. This would definitely be one of the highlights of my year.
With the man of the night, Lesley Mobo. Congratulations again, you are amazing!
I know you would love to also watch the show, so here:
I’m always open for styling jobs (fashion shows, personal, etc.), contact me anytime. Read more here.

COLGATE White’s Hot Party
Last November 8, Colgate held a party for their White’s Hot Campaign which also showcased the blogger finalists and their works for the White’s Hot Fashion Fashion Face-Off and of course White’s Hot ambassador, Solenn Heusaff was also there to complete the event.
Check out what happened during the fun event caught by Jason Magbanua on tape!
Hope I somehow brought you in the event with the video :)
Now, let’s talk about Solenn Heussaff as she shares her hottest beauty secret.
In the quest for youthful beauty, it’s easy to overlook the one thing that actually makes a difference—your smile.
Take it from this generation’s It Girl, Solenn Heussaff, whose star wattage is built on a dazzling grin that she readily flashes across billboards and ads across the metro. A bright smile can strip years away from your face and brighten up your look, possibly even more than some products that promise to prevent wrinkles, sagging or sunspots.
“Uneven skin tone can be covered, blemishes can be concealed, but discolored teeth? That’s hard to disguise. You can be dressed in this season’s trendiest clothes and be perfectly made-up, but that look is incomplete without a beautiful smile,” she says.
Because a person’s pearly whites are a very central feature that serves both an aesthetic and practical purpose, it’s only logical that you put as much effort into taking care of it as you would any other part of your beauty regimen like your skin or your hair. A smile is easily ruined by the discoloration of your teeth—and whether it’s because of diet or lifestyle, the important thing to remember is that you can help do something about it.
“Of course it’s important to make sure that your skin is healthy, to take care of your hair and to establish your own style. But something as simple and basic as discolored teeth can take away all the effort that women put in to their look,” Solenn says. “You know how great skin is essential to looking good with make up? The same goes with your smile. A set of healthy, white teeth is always more important than having the right shade of lipstick or the right accessories.”
For someone who is consistently in the spotlight, Solenn admits that she can get very conscious of her smile. And this has prompted her to seek and try out brands and products that will help keep her confidence up as she beams in front of the cameras. To this end, Solenn is eager to share the secret behind her bright, beautiful, complete look—the new Colgate Optic White.
“It’s more than just a toothpaste. I have tried so many products available in the market and Colgate Optic White, I must say, really works.” she enthuses.
For anyone in doubt, you won’t even have to wait long for the results. Colgate Optic White toothpaste is proven to make teeth one shade whiter after just one week.
It has Whitening Accelerators, which consist of a special dual system of silica for stain removal and pyrophosphates for stain prevention, creating a high-performance whitening system that works in just one week.
The line comes complete with the Colgate 360⁰ Optic White toothbrush that aids in effectively removing surface stains and targeting hard to reach areas. There is also the Colgate Optic White mouthwash that employs a stain prevention system to help maintain the natural whiteness of your teeth for a longer period of time.
Fellow beauty and style experts, Rajo Laurel, Jenni Epperson and Phoemela Baranda agree. The four make up the elite Style Squad, who collectively understands the importance of a white, bright smile to instantly pull a polished and fashionable look together. In fact, to highlight just how important this is, Colgate launched the White’s Hot Fashion Face Off contest —where the online community can go head to head to showcase their style and fashion prowess, for a chance to be Solenn’s stylist for a fashion spread.
“More than a toothpaste, Colgate Optic White is a beauty product that has proven itself to be so effective, that it is now a part of my beauty regimen,” she ends.
For more information, please visit White’s Hot on Facebook
Thank you so much Kelly Medina for inviting me to this event! He’s also one of the finalist of White’s Hot Fashion Face-Off so vote for him here and you can get a chance to win Php5000 worth of Rajo Laurel GCs!
And thanks for these Colgate! Can’t wait to try Colgate Optic White and see the difference in a week!
The Magic behind BENCH x Furne Onè
Bench creates a stellar collaboration with one of Dubai’s most prestigious designers, Furne Onè. The designer has truly come a long way from being rewarded in Mega Young Designers Competition, an apprenticeship with Josie Natori, gaining the first prize at the Japan’s Women’s Wear Awards, a finalist in Manila’s Fashion Designer Awards three years later, a store in Dubai with a roster of elite clientele, guesting in Germany’s Next Top Model, and this year, as Bench’s designer perfume “concoctionist.”
Three scents are going to be released this season under this collaboration: Unholy Eau de Toilette, and an oxymoron of scents such as Beautiful Boy Eau de Toilette, and Handsome Girl Eau de Toilette. The first fragrance, Unholy, is bottled in a red, glass flask. A unisex scent, it has a top note of mandarin, a middle aroma of rose, and musk as its base note. Beautiful Boy, a fragrance for men, is a concoction of grapefruit, neroli, bergamot, cardamon, peppery, rosewood, iris and musk. And lastly Handsome Girl has a floral and fruity cocktail blend of apple, melon, lemon, orange, frangipani, neroli, cedarwood, amber and musk.
The face of Furne Onè’s scent for Bench is none other than Raina Hein of the 14th cycle of America’s Next Top Model.
She was chosen as one of the 13 girls to compete in New York City for show and became known for her positive personality and unique look. The campaign is unique, beautiful, haunting and mysterious, and is sure to create a stir—just like the brand and the designer themselves.
The photo shoot was done in Reno, Nevada and was shot by renowned photographer Franz Szony known as a “photographic painter,” wherein he builds his “paintings” by shooting individual elements, scenes and objects then complied into a finalized image concept—which takes a devotion of time and seeing details rarely seen in the photograph aesthetic.
The launch for this most awaited collaboration between Bench and Furne Onè was held last November 8 at the Peninsula Manila which showcased 42 pieces of Furne Onè’s new creation which has never seen before and shoes provided by local designer Nereku.
And as a big fan of Furne One and Bench, I didn’t miss the chance to witness this amazing event and I can’t wait to share to you some photos soon on my blog!
So, set your scent-ses free this season and catch three of the most provocative scents by Furne Onè for Bench.
Unholy EDT (P468/100ml); Beautiful Boy (P398/70ml); Handsome Girl (P398/70ml) available at Bench stores.
Have Fun with Your Make-Up with THEFACESHOP Lovely Me:Ex
Who told you make-up can’t be a whole lot of fun? Check out the Lovely Me:Ex Collection of THEFACESHOP and you’ll know how you can enjoy and have fun with your make-up!
THEFACESHOP showed us exactly that from their latest bloggers’ event held at TGIF, Glorietta. Whenever I get invited by TFS on their events, I get extremely excited because I know for one it would be so much fun and also, I’ll learn a lot of things.
And this event was unlike their former ones because the bloggers will not be the one getting a makeover using TFS’ products but instead we were the makeup artists. It was a workshop where we were able to use and try THEFACESHOP’s Lovely Me:Ex Collection on our models, who were TheFaceShop Top Girl 2012 Finalists. The makeup and hairstyle will be depending on what we like, the only thing required is to have fun with the colors.
Check out my model, Patricia, getting all dolled up.
For her makeup, I decided to play with the different colors of eye shadows of Lovely Me:Ex and apply it like a palette looking like a rainbow.
Here are other bloggers, busy with their models’ looks.
So, what do you think of pretty Patricia after?
TheFaceShop Top Girl 2012, Mona Luna and finalists
After the workshop, we went to the store for our shopping spree! Yay!
We all love these eye shadows! Very easy to apply and it looks really good based on my personal experience with it and it lasts long!
The best make-up collection ever! The Flawless Collection by Son Dae Sik.
I’ve been using TheFaceShop’s makeup products every time I go out because they are really great and can stand time also very good for my skin. I’m looking forward to seeing more collection from this great korean makeup store.
Photos with Cheyser and Mikki Galang whom I’ve spent the event with.
More about the Lovely Me:Ex collection on my blog soon! Shop them now on TheFaceShop branches nationwide and try for yourself, I know you’d love them as much as I do!
Thank you so much again, TheFaceShop, for another awesome event. I had fun, as always. Can’t wait for more!
