Nailaholics’: Winning London! (5D/4N for 2) + travel tips about my visit

London Calling! Visiting the historic Big Ben, Kensington Palace, State of the art Churches, Tower bridge, the gush of the undeground, wax figures at Madame Taussauds, buying good deals at Tesco and luxury window shopping at Harrods – a tick on my bucketlist at the age of 15. I can’t recall if we rode a double decker tho. It was easter of 2009 when my family and I had the opportunity to visit across the pond from our 8 hour trip coming from Muscat, Oman. My recall(-ing) may not be that vague anymore but seemingly it was a eye- opening cultural experience to see that side of Europe.

At the strike of 5PM some malls close and the pubs stat to open at 6PM. At 7PM, still daylight and it feels like 3 or 4 in the afternoon. I’ve got some trivia about London by watching Mary-Kate and Ashley “London Calling” like the bathroom is called a “loo”, then I remembered asking a friend where’s the comfort room (very pinoy of me) they ain’t familiar, next time kasi washroom kasi HAHA. The question came back to me why pinoys call it “Comfort room”, I said I don’t know either. Speaking of washroom, apparently there are some washrooms that have condoms available at the dispenser – I can’t recall that well (maybe not all). Yes, they are liberated.

Brits are always on the go and strict on time. At the airport all of them were rushing against each other at the immigration. I learned staring is rude and its just mind your own business. They strictly follow the scehdule of the buses. Taking the bus, you just have to follow a certain number to get to your destination. You’ll see a lot of older people still active and strolling with their trolley.

Its the churches and museums that gave me an awe! Wishing I could go back to explore since I’ve aged and appreciate the #wanderlust life. Maybe visit Harry Potter!

That’s why I want my readers to experience the same experience I had, and by joining Nailaholics mechanics this can be your chance!

BEAUTYMNL Beauty Haul x Krishgeek

‘Finally a beauty destination for you” – a package greeting everytime you receive a fresh crisp sealed bag right in front of your doorstep. Before teaming up with BeautyMNL I have personally shopped for a contour kit and it got delivered in less than 3 days  in perfect condition. What I love about BeautyMNL it is a one stop shop of everything beauty related. I love how most of the products are affordable and  budge- friendly! Also the promotion of innovative local beauty products and availability of some international brands as well like INNIS FREE and more! Also how flexible the options on the terms of payment – from Credit card, to bank deposit and cash payment upon delivery. Instructions are easy and the site is manageable.

Lately I barely use makeup because I sweat easily especially during summer and maybe sometimes I admit “katamaran”. Since Alicia Keys started to promote NO MAKE UP and natural beauty I got inspired too, but I admit I don’t have the best bare skin around. In all fainess I managed to still pull off that college student vibe.

So this beauty haul I got is entirely dedicated to skin care

  1. Acne Pimple Master Patch (24 patches)

This product is so effective! You start first by cleansing the zit/pimple then choose a suitable size of patch and let it stay while I did mine while I was sleeping and the next day poof! The patch absorb the pus and oil.

  • I got this on a special promo that came with a FREE voucher from ORIGINS andSKIN GENIE LIP & CHEEK TINT in tulip red. Another thing in BeautyMNL you can find great deals, packages and discounts time to time!
  1. Apple Cider Vinegar Toner and Soap

The rave about the benefits of Apple cider vinegar is beyond amazing ! When I saw SKIN GENIE and all their APPLE CIDER VINEGAR PRODUCTS, no hesitation, instant click and MUST HAVE! We know the tons of benefits of apple cider vinegar when it comes to health (My mom would drink teaspoons in a day because it serves as detox and decreases appetite – we are talking about the legit ACV)

What I like of SKIN GENIE on their apple cider vinegar , It doesn’t smell like APPLE CIDER VINEGAR and it comes in affordable prices.

APPLE CIDER VINEGAR TONER  with vodka and witch hazel comes in a spray bottle (100 ml) – after cleasning, spray on a cotton pad and then apply on your face. It contains minerals and potassium that help regenerate the skin helping in PH balance and removes dead cells plus excess oil.

The SOAP on the other hand contains antibacterial properties to help prevent acne and skin infections – Good for all ages. I saw a review about it, that it helps get rid of BACKNE which is my main concern now. Can’t wait to see more of the results in the coming days so far I get less backne nowadays

TIPID TIP: Slice into pieces in order to conserve the soap. In applying damp skin and massagr a light foaming lather for 1-2 mins to get the maximum whitening effect then rinse.


Another SKIN GENIE innovation ! Natural bleaching mist which helps lightens complexion and claims to clear blemishes. You use it by spritzing over face and body after shower.  Plus it is a good moisturizer and mood booster.I struggle with so  called beauty marks and scars all over  my face and body – can’t wait to see the difference in the coming weeks. It has no bleach in the ingredients but it contains ALKALINE WATER, CALAMANSI EXTRACT,RIND OIL, ACV, Coconut cider vinegar, pink grapefruit extract  (the scent in a very good acid way that smells good), MINT, ALPHA HYDROXY ACID, FULVIC ACID, SODIUM ASCORBATE, SODIUM BICARB & BENZOATE


I have “umbok” eyelashes, It got trimmed when I was young and it never grew any longer. I get really jealous with people with natural long and thick eyelashes. Apparently FTL contains castor oil which helps hair grow longer and I love how good it smells. Just apply to lashes ad eyebrow twice a day. Leave it overnight/whole day.While applying you get this tingly minty feeling.


Since I got back from HK, whenever I travel my skin always gets dry now I am back time for my skin to recoup and I really love Olay body washes ever since, it makes my skin soft, refreshing, long-lasting and gives me that confidence for the entire day.


Stay Healthy All Summer with Generika

Summer can be draining and at some point our body’s immunity goes down because of the shift of seasons. Living in the city you can be exposed to pollution and others. Plus for me, I do work in a hospital contained environment which makes me exposed to all sorts of viruses and bacteria – it comes with my job that’s why I was advised to take multivitamins and eating the right stuff. Our body cells need certain nutrients in order for us to be healthy and fight all sorts of bacteria. Being healthy starts in the inside and reflects in the outside. 

Keep your summer fun by staying healthy. While it’s tempting to just explore the great outdoors or hit the beach this season, it’s absolutely important we take extra precautions while spending time under the sun. By taking to heart these simple reminders, you can protect yourself and your loved ones from the harmful effects of the summer season’s excessive heat.

#1 The sun isn’t always your friend. ­­­While the heat starts to rise at about 9am in the morning, the temperature is at its peak between 11am to 3pm every day. It’s best to stay indoors during this time to avoid the sun’s harmful UV rays and overheating. But if you absolutely need to go out, make sure to wear loose breathable clothing and apply at least SPF 15 sunscreen to exposed parts of your body. A hat and sunglasses are a must too, as intense amounts of sunlight are harmful to your eyes.

 #2 Keep cool. The easiest way to keep cool all day is to stay hydrated. Cold water and iced (but diluted) fruit juice is best. Any drink with high amounts of sugar, or those with alcohol and caffeine should be avoided. If you’re at home, stay in the coolest part of the house and keep it ventilated. Use shades or light-colored curtains to block the sunlight. And for the really hot moments in the day, don’t hesitate to take a cold bath. Make sure to keep a look out for your loved ones who may be unable to cope with the heat.

#3 Eat healthier. Higher temperatures are dangerous for those with existing heart conditions. And that’s why this season, it’s even more important to keep ourselves healthy by eating the right kind of food. This summer, when you’re craving for a sweet treat – eat fresh fruit instead. When eating out or in a party, pick salads over other offerings. Just make sure you don’t over indulge when putting too much dressing. And above all, add more veggies into your home-cooked meals. All of this will keep you fit, helping you better withstand the summer heat.

#4 Exercise wisely. Now is not the right season to do too much cardio all at once. But if you must, do cooler cardio activities like swimming in cold water. It’s also best to shorten and divide your workout time, and do them only before or after the day’s hottest periods. If you want to take your exercise outside, make sure to pick shady and breezy spots. But for the summer, it is ideal to do your workouts in a properly ventilated and/or air-conditioned indoor gym.                                                                                                        

When you take these reminders to heart, you’ll surely have a fun and healthy summer. But just to make sure you get a healthy boost, you can also take a Generika Drugstore Nutraceutical that’s right for you. Nutrawell Collagen with Astaxanthin and Hyaluronic Acid is perfect for those who want to protect and nourish their skin despite the harsh summer sun. Its key component, Astaxanthin, helps safeguard the skin from harmful UV rays. (My previous review)

 For those who want to improve their heart health, they can take Nutrawell Garlic + Hawthorne Berry + Gingko Biloba. This nutraceutical enhances blood circulation throughout the body and increases oxygen utilization in the heart.

Those seeking overall wellness will love the Actimed Multivitamins + Minerals. With its balanced formulation of vitamins and minerals, it can help the body cope even in stressful conditions. As an added boost,

Nutrawell Probiotics can improve your gut health – boosting your immunity and even help prevent common summer ailments such as Diarrhea. For more health tips or to learn more about Generika Drugstore, simply visit


Kojie San Dream White Anti-aging Skincare

Being a blogger and my normal life, I have a lot of things to juggle – for those who know me, I am always on my A game (means being productive). But when its my time to get a snooze, that’s my only time to get a shut-eye and collect all the energy needed for the next day. Not only that – it is my precious time for my skin to recoup. ( Sleep increases melatonin- regenerate collagen-producing making skin soft)

Before going to sleep I developed a skin care ritual to make my skin look youthful. (Personally I feel I am a 15 year old stuck in a 23 year old body).Though I admit my skin is still in puberty – breakouts and dark spots. My skin never looked this better compared before. Just the basic- cleanse, toner and moisturize plus eating the right kind of  food and my dose of Vitamin E. Working out kinda helped my skin too and another tip: hang out with younger people. Ofcourse to get atleast 6-8 hours of sleep in a day were the key. Also MINUS STRESS.  

Kojie san dream white developed a BED Ritual: BREATHE, ENRICHED and DREAM. The pre-sleep regimen for its anti aging line. Kojie San really works and I know a lot of people who use the Kojic soap and got good results. And definitely hoping for the best for their anti-aging skin line which is btw FOR ALL SKIN TYPES and HYPOALLERGENIC. Contains Hydrotensyl complex(boost collagen), Milk peptide(prevents wrinkles), sodium hyaluronate(moisture) and kojic acid (brightens and lightens).

BREATHE: Relax in a quiet and comfortable spot in the bedroom, then proceed to cleanse and let the skin breathe by washing the face with DREAM WHITE ANTI AGING SOAP. Afterwards, rehydrate, whiten and nourish with DREAM WHITE ANTI AGING FACIAL TONER.

Review: The dream white anti-aging soap doesn’t melt down right away and has a vanilla whiff. The toner has a stronger scent but gives you a minty cool feeling upon application.

ENRICH: Revitalize the face and neck with the DREAM WHITE ANTI AGING OVERNIGHT CREAM before going to bed to prepare skin for a night rejuvenation.

Review: Don’t use too much, just a right amount then you’ll feel your skin all soft after a few minutes. Try comparing it on a hand with no cream then see & feel the difference

DREAM: Unplug from the world, turn off the lights, and tune out distractions to focus on recharging the mind and body with restful sleep.

DREAMWHITE BLEMISH CORRECTING CREAM – best used for day and night to reduce skin imperfections and lighten dark facial spots. Review: I Personally recommend this because in matter of 1-2 weeks some of my dark spots have lighten.

The DREAM WHITEANTI-AGING CREAM WITH SUNSCREEN to protect under the harmful effects of the sun. Review: Texture wise it is light on the skin and I like how it makes also my skin soft plus feeling fresh.

For visible results, skin whitens in 1 week, reduce wrinkles in 14 days and moisturize skin 4-6 weeks.


Review: Skin station AXI LIGHT

I’ve been receiving bunch of emails and DMs on my Instagram since I purchased AXI LIGHT from Skin station and posted the vouchers on my Instagram page – since I am a blogger I feel obligated to share what I have experienced. Let’s be honest it is really an expensive investment. Plus the readers who messaged me shared there ain’t any reviews online.

I had really dark underarms growing up maybe all that fat rubbing in for years and trying out products that eventually made my pits look darker. My apologies, I feel ashame of posting my underarms because it is really dark. I hope you guys would understand since it is a private matter and I haven’t quite achieved what I was hoping for because as advised by the dermatologist since my pits are really dark it would take more than 5 sessions maybe on the 8th I’ll see results. By that time the promo was 5 sessions worth 12k, It REALLY LIGHTENED but it needed more sessions to completely get  what I really wanted. It is my ultimate goal to get those PIA WURTZBACH underarms and finally wear a sleeveless top – but I have big arms too.

When people meet me in person, they think I am this confident outgoing girl. Deep inside I’m not but now I am 23, I am slowly starting to accept myself for who I am and like what Kloe Kardashian says “Outer beauty is fixable”. The road to tiis ganda may take awhile but when I am ready I will share it to you guys – with documentations.

FIRST SESSION: The laser was TINGLY but tolerable, its like needles pricking through your skin by thin light. After the session the doctor would recommend creams for you to apply.  Advise, consistently meet the same doctor who did your first session. The session is done every 2 weeks.

As time gets by the procedure gets painful (by the 3rd session it started to hurt), as resolved by one doctor it is because the cream makes my skin more sensitive to the treatment which is normal. So I stopped using the cream as advised. So it highly depends on how sensitive your skin is and talk to the doctor.

When it came to my last session, I saw the difference but I wasn’t satisfied. The doctor recommended mine would take up to more than 8 sessions + for it t be white as I wanted. So now I am saving and waiting for the next promo to come 🙂

I hope this helps guys and If you have experienced the AXI LIGHT – feel free to comment below 🙂


Review: Japan IPL Express Philippines

So I’ve been receiving questions from friends and readers about JAPAN IPL. So what is IPL ( I get this question a lot from guy friends) ? IPL stands for Intense pulse light. During the process of hair growth the IPL hits the hair bulb to lessens the hair growth – so that happens.

So I’ve been trying their treatments for months, and here are tips for you. First, DON’T PLUCK the target hair (s) (you may trim it prior ) because the person who will be doing the procedure needs to assess it. Assess on how many shots needed on that area, intervals and if needed. You have to purchase an additional disposal shaver worth PHP 50.

My target areas were my chin and upper lip, How does it feel?  It is NOT PAINFUL, it is HOT (depending on how sensitive the area is) and QUICK LASER SHOT – very tolerable. It is sometimes “NAKAKAGULAT” – in shock at times.

What is nice about JAPAN IPL it is just PHP 40 per shot and it caters to any target area.

If you recommend friends, you get 5 FREE SHOTS! and if you get to visit their branches don’t forget to mention me and my blog! when you fill out the “recommendation part”. Watch out for upcoming promos on their social media pages JAPAN IPL EXPRESS on facebook and @japaniplexpressph on Instagram 🙂 Visit for more information

L’Oreal Professionnel Hair Contouring with Smartbond Transforms Three New Ambassadors

L’Oreal Professionnel Hair Contouring with Smartbond Transforms Three New Ambassadors

A beauty queen, a fashion model, and a millennial multi-hyphenate look hot in their new hair looks.

It doesn’t take much to look this good—former Miss Universe runner-up Shamcey Supsup, supermodel Jessica Yang, and actress-slash-producer Lauren Young will tell you that changing your look only requires one great hair coloring session without fear of damage.

These girls debuted their rocking new looks on their Instagram pages (@supsupshamcey, @jesych and @lo_young), sporting freshly-colored hair with the latest Color Trend this 2017, Hair Contouring, courtesy of L’Oreal Professionnel, applied with their newest care additive, Smartbond.

How exactly does your hair color affect your face shape? Let these girls show you:



                                                            Shamcey Supsup

 Profile: The Conservative Filipina who is afraid of a drastic change in look

Shamcey Supsup is quite the overachiever. A rising career as a top architect did not quell her desire to join Miss Universe, considerably the most prestigious beauty pageant of all. She now enjoys her life as a TV personality part-time and mother full-time, which is why she prefers a more conservative palette for her hair color, without drastically changing her look.

Face Shape: Square

To do Hair Contouring on her square-shaped face, the corners were softened thru the placement of darker shades in the corners, and lighter shades in the cheek-bones. Similarly, the use of highlights helped in adding depth and dimension. Smartbond was mixed to her Majirel hair color and highlights, so she did not have to fear damage.

                                                                Lauren Young

 Profile: The Modern Filipina who loves to color her hair

She’s a star both on and off screen, simultaneously pursuing her acting career while dabbling with producing and directing. When she’s not portraying her dream roles, she’s off producing music videos for indie rappers and journaling for her friend via her website, Lauren Learns. She’s having the time of her life, and it’s indeed reflected in her hair as she embodies a modern Filipina who loves to color, and was up for the task of changing it again.

Face Shape: Long

To do Hair Contouring on her long-shaped face, her look was opened-up thru the placement of darker shades at the top, and lighter shades in the front of the face. Smartbond was mixed to her Majirel hair color and highlights, so she did not have to fear damage.

                                                                  Jessica Yang

 Profile: The Adventurous Filipina who was born to be blonde

A bohemian beach babe and a a city slick supermodel rolled into one —Jessica Yang is probably one of the most interesting faces you will ever come across, and much of it has something to do with her wild heart and personality, reflected in her desire to wear lighter hair color shades!

Face Shape: Heart

To do Hair Contouring on her heart-shaped face, the top was softened thru the placement of darker shades in the top, and lighter shade at the bottom. Smartbond was mixed to her Blond Studio and Majirel hair color, so she did not have to fear damage.

L’Oreal Professionnel Hair Contouring services offer a range of techniques for your face shape, with the goal of achieving the perfectly tapered and symmetric oval shape. Consult any L’Oreal Professionnel hair expert to know the recommended hair color treatment for you—this time though, Smartbond adds its hair-protecting technology into the mix, making you look great, and #FearNoDamage.

Avail of these Hair Contouring looks with Smartbond by L’Oreal Professionnel hair experts in any L’Oreal Professionnel partner salon.

L’Oreal Professionnel’s lets you have your hair colored without having to fear damage.

Hair coloring can mean different things to different women; some would prefer conservative warm browns, others favor modern golden shades, and the more adventurous choose to go blond. Regardless of their differences one thing remains the same, the fear of damage. L’Oreal Professionnel now makes it possible for all women to dare trying whichever color transformation they desire, without having to fear damage, thanks to the newest product launch, Smartbond, a hair color additive.

Hair is made up of bonds, and it is when these bonds are weakened that lead to damage. Smartbond acts as a Bond Strengthening System, which works two ways during hair coloration:

  1. It RESTORES weak bonds
  2. It PROTECTS the strong bonds

The technology behind it is a blend of Ceramide & Polymers, plus a new Acid.

With this new Care Additive, not only can women can #FearNoDamage and pursue the hair color they’ve always dreamed of, they can do so without any additional time added.

  • In the First Step, the Smartbond Additive is mixed by the hairstylist together with the hair color; there is no change in processing time
  • In the Second Step, the Pre-Shampoo is applied by the hairstylist to remove residue in the hair that may contribute to further sensitization

As the global leader in beauty, L’Oreal Professionnel launches Smartbond in salons, while introducing the biggest trend in hair color this 2017; Hair Contouring. In make-up, contouring is a popular technique used to achieve the ideal Oval face shape. Hair Contouring, inspired by that principle, is created by the Salon Stylist to tailor-mix hair color that is strategically placed to enhance various face shapes.

The three most common face shapes for Filipinas are Long, Square, and Heart. L’Oreal Professionnel is training salon stylists to master the art of Hair Contouring, in order to achieve the Oval face shape for the three common Filipina profiles.

  • For the long-shaped face, the goal is to open up the generally narrow surface thru the placement of darker shades at the top, and lighter shades in the front of the face
