When In Bali

One of the things I loved most about Bali, Indonesia is it knows how to give visitors a relaxing time. It is a vacationer's paradise. Everywhere you go, you are reminded you are on vacation, so forget the stress you left back home, and just sit back, lounge about, and take a sip of your tropical cocktail! 
The ambiance, the atmosphere, the way things are laid out in every villa and restaurant and beach club we went to during a recent trip to this tropical hideaway are all about giving you a restful, rejuvenating time!

So I thought I'd dress the part and don this floral summer maxi from JELLYBEAN STORE when we went to  swanky W RETREAT & SPA BALI for some cocktails at the Woo Bar fronting the beach! Its light fabric and bare cross back design was just perfect for the warm (32 degrees C) afternoon breeze!
Thanks to VASELINE for taking us on this trip and keeping our skin protected throughout!
Watch out for more about this trip in my future posts!

Superstar bloggers and Vaseline ambassadors, Tricia Gosingtian and Laureen Uy, played the perfect hosts during the entire trip! Thank you so much!

Olay Body Wash #MoistureThatLasts Press Event & Consumer Swap

I've been so busy lately that the past few weeks went by so fast, like a blur! Hey, but who's complaining? Not me, that's for sure! I love being busy and I thrive at being under pressure so I say, bring it on!

Thank goodness for products that help me be all I can be and still look and feel my best all the time! That's exactly what the new Olay BodyWash does for me. Featuring the unique moisture outlast technology, it keeps my skin soft and hydrated all day long. But what I love most about this new product is that it comes in different scents including Cooling Strawberry and Mint, which is my personal favorite because not only does it smell so good, it is also so perfect for staying cool and refreshed during summer. I also love the Refreshing Cucumber and Green Tea and Deep Moisture with Honey variants.

About two weeks ago, Olay hosted a press event and consumer swap that introduced the new products and brand ambassadress, the lovely and talented actress, Bea Alonzo, but also allowed people to come in with their old products and swap them with the new Olay products. How cool is that?
Here below are some pictures from that event.

Lips in Revlon Ultra HD

Few things make a girl worth her Kikay Kit (Vanity Kit) happier than make up, make up, and more make up! They're part and parcel of a fashionista's total look, and the kind of make up you wear can actually make or break an outfit. Call me superficial, call me vain, call me what you want but don't take away my mascara and my favorite lippie!

Imagine my delight, therefore, at receiving a few weeks back not one, not two, not three, but four new REVLON ULTRA HD Lipsticks in my favorite shades! Let me tell you some of the reasons why I do.

HD MAGNOLIA is light and fresh and perfect for daytime use. If you want that natural, barely there look, this one is for you!

HD HYDRANGEA is my favorite everyday "go to" shade!  I just love it! I use it for photo shoots, meetings, and casual dates. It's just the perfect color for the young and the carefree!

HD GLADIOLUS is the one I first saw on Emma Stone and instantly fell in love with it! It's the most romantic, bright red lipstick that's perfect for the strong, independent woman! It's a shade that's rich and luxurious, you feel like you're out to conquer the world (or at least tame every man!) wearing it!

HD IRIS is for the edgy and the sophisticated me! I like wearing this color when I'm out to do some serious partying at the club!  It's what I'd want to be wearing when I'm out dancing the night away!

Revlon's new ULTRA HD lipstick line features the revolutionary wax-free gel technology that everyone is raving about! And why wouldn't we, when a single smooth swipe assures you of true color clarity and minus the heavy feel!

Though not the most hydrating variety, these lippies have a lot of things going for them: They're long-lasting, some shades have a matte finish but I always love the ones with a little sheen to them! They're also very reasonably priced at PHP575 or US$12.

Oh and they're available in 20 exciting shades so you'll definitely find one or more that suit you!
