I am City Ready, Always!

Hey  City Girls

Living in the city of Manila can be challenging #TheStruggleIsReal and we live in a tropical destination near the freaking equator! Despite how hot the season has been, being in a tropical country has its perks as well. Trying to look at the bright side of things. The only thing that adds to manila’s heat is the traffic – never ending. Creating POLLUTION which is not doing anything good to our respiratory health as well.

Since I love to travel outside the country, I really enjoy visiting other country’s cities. Honestly, a major upgrade from Manila. I am not really a nature girl but I go with the flow when my friends ask me to go for  thrill seeking nature adventures. But there is something about the city that is really me. Maybe it’s the hyped energy and always something that will catches my attention.

The City can be amazing to explore but the SUN and HEAT can be damaging to our precious skin. With Vaseline’s NEW Healthy white sun + pollution protection SPF 24 PA++ with micro droplets of vaseline jelly. I’ve been using the lotion after getting a recent sunburn from swimming, since I am all covered up and just hanging in the city for while, It just feels light on the skin and a soothing feeling after applying. It is non greasy and fast absorbing. Signature vaseline scent but more FRESH and you can really smell yourself- so good!

I personally advice if you’re just hanging around in the city, not too much exposure from the sun because you have to get from one place to another and if you’re just commuting, Vaseline’s Healthy White just gives the right amount of protection and fights the “amoy araw”  scent since we are exposed to pollution  plus gives the skin proper moisture it needs. Even though the body is mostly covered day to day, we have to still give it TLC because it shows and reflects how healthy we look and feel 🙂

The Future of Phones with VIVO

When young global smartphone brand Vivo entered the mobile industry, the
market was dominated by two or three names. But in a matter of years, Vivo
changed the game.
Vivo has been determined to break barriers and introduce technology that
ushered the industry into the future. After all, it was Vivo that introduced a
20-megapixel dual front camera in V5 Plus and a 24MP front camera in V7,
V7+, and V9
The V5 is the first smartphone with a 20MP camera.
The V5 was then followed by the release of the V5Plus (left) and V5s (right), both with 20MP selfie camera. The V5Plus, meanwhile, has a 20MP+8MP dual rear camera.
Aside from the selfie camera, Vivo also paid attention to the users’ need for a bigger screen. Earlier this year, Vivo released the ultimate iteration of a concept smartphone, the APEX™ FullView™, which nearly has a 100% screen-to-body display. The V9, Vivo’s newest flagship, is getting closer to goal with its 90% screen-to-body ratio. Vivo is also the first to introduce the in-display fingerprint scanner that gives users another method to unlock their smartphones.
Vivo then introduced the first smartphones with 24MP front camera, the V7+ (left) and V7 (right).
Vivo then released the upgrade to its cameras, the V9 with a 24MP AI Selfie Camera and 16MP+5MP dual rear camera.
It is still a wonder what Vivo will do next. For instance, it wowed the tech world with its bezel-less APEX concept smartphone because of its pop-up selfie camera to achieve the 100% screen-to-body ratio. Helping the brand unlock the next best thing in the mobile industry are 2,200 dedicated research and development personnel in several R&D centers worldwide—in San Diego, United States and in China, specifically in Shenzhen, Dongguan, Nanjing, Hangzhou, and Beijing. With all its development, it is no doubt that the young smartphone brand is already leading the pack to the future.

I am #Curvalicious with Whisper

Usually when that time of the month comes, Hormones can go crazy but that comes being organically human. 

Being that girl with a crazy schedule, active lifestyle and love spontaneous trips! I dare to #ChooseCurvalicious with @whisperphilippines Cottony soft protection up to 12 hours leakage protection – Nothing holding us back girls and we can do whatever we want! 

So the cottony soft protection got an upgrade from blue to its new pink look. So I’ve tried the regular 23 cm pad (comes with 8 pads in a pack) with wings, It was comfy. Like it says, snuggly fit – you know sometimes when you place a napkin it goes eitherways. Whisper cottony soft protection has that Stick n’ secure feature and has anti leak barriers. I usually use heavy flow pads epsecially the first 2 days of my period (STRONG TIMES). When I got my whisper pack, luckily it was my 4th day so It’s perfectly fine for me to use a regular pad especially during the day. It’s “CURVALICIOUS DESIGN” fits sunggly to prevent leaks and helps soothe skin because made of Dermcare™ lotion.  

Whisper did still stick to the floral aesthetic design (wrap and strip) and the pad itself still got the basic look. I couldn’t recall the previous design because I used the other kind (whisper clean and dry). 

In all fairness upon using it for 12 hrs, It didn’t feel lumpy- you know girls what I mean. Lastly, another important thing I did not experience any skin reactions because that’s what I consider most  a GOOD pad.

Vivo took Sports marketing seriously in 2017

Vivo signed up NBA superstar Stephen Curry in mid 2017 to represent its equally first-rate brand. Likewise, the big-ticket brand became the official sponsor of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia which it heavily advertised in the entirety of 2017. In the Philippines, Vivo supported various sports events as co-presenter and sponsor of ABS-CBN NBA Philippines Season 2016 and 2017 and Season 2017 and 2018 of the NCAA Men’s Basketball and UAAP Men’s Basketball Season 80.

Vivo helps, heals, and cares

In December 2017, Vivo launched a touching tribute video for the freedom fighters of Marawi which garnered a total of 2.2 million views on the official Vivo Philippines Facebook page and 91,000 interactions.

ATC x Preview Editor’s Closet November 11-15

Shop like a Preview Editor and get the latest pieces this season, Preview magazine in collaboration with Alabang Town Center got you covered, This season trends are DENIM, POLKA DOTS, KNIT, 70s and Folk.

The previous ATC X Preview Editor’s Closet was also located at ATC’s Activity Center and every area there was a designated genre of clothing. For this year, is the same concept except that Preview pinpointed this season trends that we’ve been seeing recently in magazine covers and the runways. Personally, I see lots of Denim and 70s style revived lately. Then especially now its winter we’ll  be seeing lots of knits. 

It still has that cozy vibe while shopping, every area is in distinctively designed and Instagram-worthy accordingly. This year I noticed there were more accessories displayed. People might expect high end brands but there are also local brands that made it! Speaking of local brands, a lot them are stepping up their game and matching with the high end brands. These brands are able to follow trends and style that millenials and gen Z would really like. There are affordable pieces, if you patiently look around because different brands are distributed in each genre. You may spot pieces from P500 and above. 

I do agree that ATC is the best venue at the South, growing up at ATC I’ve seen a lot of posh and well dressed shoppers. Not like for fashion week glamour  but like well put together that seem classic and chic.
