The first time I heard about Avène was when my mom bought me a bottle of their tinted sunscreen during one of her travels to Europe. The texture was great but the color didn't suit me well. I wanted to check out the rest of their products but it wasn't possible because they weren't available in the country at that time. But now I can do exactly that because Avène has finally arrived in the Philippines!
Last March, they launched their products in the Philippines, which includes a variety of sunscreens, cleansers, creams, and lotions for various skin types. Read more about their products after the break!

For the launch of Heroine Make's Jewelry Eyecolor, make-up artist Sayuri Igarashi who came all the way from Japan did a short make-up demo at the Beauty Section of SM Makati. Ms. Igarashi gave out expert tips and shared some techniques on how to prepare looks for various occasions. We also got to ask her some of our makeup questions which she gamely answered! Read more after the break.
P.S. I just had a haircut that day which explains why my hair looks weird in the photos. My bangs were cut way too short! Lol.

People often ask me where I work and what I do. Since I'm a pharmacy major, most assume that I'm working at a pharmaceutical company, but even before graduation I had already been thinking that pharmacy was not for me. I finally decided to go out of my comfort zone and venture into a field I knew nothing about. So when an opportunity presented itself, I took it without any hesitation. I entered the mysterious and unknown world (to me, anyway) of the power industry. Currently, I am one of two commercial trainees in our company and we're being rotated within the different groups under the commercial team. It has been a wonderful three months in my job, and I'm really loving every minute of it!

One of the reasons I love my job is that I get to travel! It was one of the few things I missed out on back in college, and I was absolutely overjoyed when I found out that my job includes traveling! Two weeks ago, we went to Baguio and stayed there for 4 days. We had breakfast at Cafe by the Ruins, a meeting at The Manor, dinner at Baguio Country Club, and even a late night snack at Choco-late de Batirol for our hot chocolate fix! I never expected work to be this fun, but I'm definitely not complaining!

I don't know what got into me, but I've been loving the color red recently! I wore this outfit to work. It looks pretty conservative from the front but surprisingly daring at the back because of the cutouts. I thought I could make it more work-appropriate by wearing a black tube top underneath but when I got to the office, I realized that it was still a bit too daring. I hurriedly grabbed my cardigan (which was hidden in my drawer specifically for emergency cases), and was saved from an embarrassing fashion disaster!

When I saw the hot, sunny day before me I knew I would be spending it outdoors. Hey, if you're stuck in a desk five days a week, I'm sure you'd love to spend the rest of your free time outside! Yes? No? Okay, maybe that's just me. I'm the type of person who's always on the go and loves adventure -- any adventure, for that matter. It may be as simple as riding a bike or following a hiking trail at Nuvali, but the feeling of it is just priceless! :)

I have work on weekdays so it was great that the grand launch of Makeup Magazine was held on a Saturday. The first issue was released sometime last year, and I've seriously been wanting to get my hands on it ever since. Now on its fifth issue (with the lovely Jessy Mendiola on the cover!), Makeup Magazine covers everything about beauty -- from the latest fashion and beauty trends to celebrity regimens and trade secrets.

I like spicing up my office wear from time to time. Veering away from the traditional button-down-and-slacks combo, I choose to invest in different kinds of skirts, as well as blouses in neutral colors. My current favorites are white, black, cream, and brown because they can be easily incorporated into my existing wardrobe. How about you, what do you keep in mind when shopping for office wear? :)
