What to Look Forward as a Bella for 2019 (BDJ Launch Event + Planners)

MAKE TODAY MAGICAL!

Each year every Bella looks forward to the launch of the BDJ Planners besides that  the festivities and workshops gathered by all the Bella all over the Philippines. This year I got to participate in this meaningful event, This year’s theme is called “MAKE TODAY MAGICAL”. 

“BDJ 2019 reinforces the need for a paradigm shift. When you change the way you think and how you perceive things, you change the way you live—and magic happens.”

I got my own share of experiences on the first day of the launch, It was all my inner tita would want me to do the following. The first workshop I attended was with Zen Nutrients with Ms. Angela, You can make simple DIY linen & room spray, make up remover, scrub and massage oil with ingredients that you can find in the kitchen. I look forward to the Tarot reading anytime an opportunity passes by. I don’t totally believe readings but it just serves as a guide, nothing is wrong about it. It’s still God guiding us with our decisions in life. Canvas making was fun and the glitter tattoo that I got lasted for 3 days atleast but the stars were sloughing off day by day then then what was left was the moon haha. I got to enhance my calligraphy skills by attending Leah Ang’s workshop – blending and using shadows. Then I got the chance to be part of the Mentor Me Circle and met the famous, Tita Witty. She claims she is not funny but she is def funny in a relatable sense. I got to be surrounded by women who are successful but at the end of the day chose what makes them fulfilled. As the youngest one in the group, I still have lots to go through, still lost at 25 yet I just told myself to just enjoy the process and eventually things will fall into place. This is why BDJ events are so meaningful and encouraging to attend. We empower each other may it be male or female, young or old – we just uplift each other.

LG GIFTS THE NATIONAL MUSEUM OF THE PHILIPPINES WITH THE WORLD’S #1 OLED TV

On its 30th anniversary, LG Philippines salutes the National Museum of the Philippines and its new National Museum of Natural History, and celebrates one of the world’s richest marine ecosystems.

To further its CSR thrust of promoting education, LG Philippines, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary, has made a large donation in-kind to the National Museum of the Philippines, both in acknowledgement of its valuable work and to celebrate its newly opened National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) in Rizal Park. LG is hoping to promote a more holistic and interactive experience for visitors by donating one 65-inch OLED TV (E8), one 55-inch OLED TV (C8) and one 55-inch UHD TV to the premier public museum institution of the country. 

As part of the donation, LG also commissioned underwater conservationist director/photographer Noel Guevara to create a short video that showcases the richness and beauty of underwater life in the Philippines, said to be the epicenter of marine biodiversity on earth. The video, shot off Balicasag Island in Panglao, Bohol features colorful reefs, tropical fish of all sizes and turtle residence. 

“As an underwater photographer and in this case, videographer, I am one of the many visual ambassadors of the sea, whose job is to bring the ocean closer to people’s hearts,” says Guevara. “Balicasag is a beautiful, bountiful dive spot. Showcasing its vibrant marine life in glorious, colorful 4K allows a viewer to take in these sights in more detail and with better appreciation, where the only thing better left to do is to 

“As an underwater photographer and in this case, videographer, I am one of the many visual ambassadors of the sea, whose job is to bring the ocean closer to people’s hearts,” says Guevara. “Balicasag is a beautiful, bountiful dive spot. Showcasing its vibrant marine life in glorious, colorful 4K allows a viewer to take in these sights in more detail and with better appreciation, where the only thing better left to do is to actually dive there.”

Guevara’s video was premiered to media and special friends at the NMNH on the 77-inch LG OLED W8 TV, LG’s newest and most stunning display to date, which showed off the underwater sights of the Bohol Sea to the best advantage. Marrying best-in-class picture quality with a mind-blowing “wallpaper” design (the display measures a paper-thin 0.23 inches), the W8 represents the height of TV technology, flaunting true-to-life picture quality and cinema-quality Dolby Atmos sound. This newly launched model is also equipped with LG’s new Alpha α9 intelligent processor, which has the ability to create the clearest and most detailed pictures with realistic color and ultra-fast response times.

Jeremy Barns, director of the National Museum of the Philippines, expressed his profound gratitude for the TVs and commissioned video, “We are very thankful to LG for their generous donation to the National Museum and for their enthusiastic support of our new National Museum of Natural History, which has broken new ground in facilitating far wider public appreciation of the natural wonders of the Philippine archipelago. These cutting-edge, beautifully designed TVs, combined with the work of this institution, will immerse our viewers and provide them with special experiences of the heritage and patrimony of the Filipino people. This video will convey more effectively than ever before the amazing marine experience that Bohol, one of so many extraordinary places in the Philippines, has to offer—short of diving Balicasag Island’s hidden depths themselves.” Barns also added that the video is a very timely complement to the opening later this year of the new National Museum in Bohol, housed at Tagbilaran’s restored and converted former provincial capitol building which was damaged in the 2013 earthquake. The museum director believes that the video should also be prominently featured in the Bohol museum in addition to the NMNH. He went on to say that the video will also feature in all the appropriate public platforms of the National Museum and be recommended to relevant key partner government agencies, including the Department of Education, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the Department of Tourism, and the National Commission for Culture and the Arts.

“LG’s goal is to harness the power of beautiful images and modern, innovative technology to fuel and inspire the next generation,” says LG Philippines managing director Mr. Inkwun Heo. “The TVs we are donating to the National Museum can be used both as educational vessels and design inspiration. The LG OLED TVs can integrate perfectly into the interiors of the National Museum in Manila and the other educational centers in their growing network of museums within the country, while the video will give museum visitors moving glimpses of the Philippines’ natural inheritance. We at LG Philippines are very proud to be associated with this great public institution and center of education, science and culture, and all of the work that they carry out for the benefit of the Filipino people and their innumerable friends throughout the world.”

 

Palmolive Expertique Hair Care Line

Palmolive Expertique hair care line brings you salon-beautiful hair everyday. With this line of hair products you can be your own hair expert at your very own home. The struggle is real in maintaining that salon-beautiful hair days after but don’t worry Palmolive Expertique got you covered.

This line comes with shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, anti frizz serum and beautifying oil. What makes this line special that it is infused with Kera-Ceramide Serum.  Hair technology that makes hair nourished and stronger inside and out. Keratin gives the hair strength leaving it smooth and manageable. The Ceramide on the other hand prevents damage and restores shine. You don’t have to spend too much on expensive hair care products and it would be available in all leading supermarkets nationwide near you. 

 

 

 

 

Also that introducing their latest ambassador, the first Filipina to win Asia’s next top model, Maureen Wroblewitz.

“Just like the majority of women out there, I too desire to have salon-beautiful hair everyday, and not just when I’m coming from a shoot or a runway show. With Palmolive EXPERTIQUETM, I am my own hair expert. I am able to take charge of not only my beauty, but my everyday too. With Palmolive EXPERTIQUETM, I can OWN IT.” – Maureen Wroblewitz

The shampoo and conditioner comes in 3 variants: REVITALISTE, SMOOTHIQUE and RESILIENTE. Available in bottles 170 ml (P130.00) and in sachets 12 ml (P6.00).

 

 

REVITALISTE is for NORMAL to DRY HAIR, contains Kera-Ceramide with biotin and hyaluronic. It penetrataes and deeply nourishes hair fibers, enhancing hair’s vitality and natural movement.

 

 

 

 

SMOOTHIQUE (This is Maureen’s personal favorite) this is for FRIZZY HAIR, contains kera-ceramide serum with rare oil complex. It aligns, tames and adds control to frzzy and flyaway hair.

RESILIENTE for DAMAGED HAIR, contains Kera- Ceramide with arginine. It reconstructs and fortifies damaged, over – treated hair.

Impressions: Affordable ofcourse!, It still has that signature Palmolive scent with a kick but fresher scent which leaves your hair really smelling good. Your hair feels light right after and a cool feeling on the scalp. I use a wet brush in combing my hair and I noticed less hair falling off and it’s super smooth with NO tangles at all.

For the hair treatments, you got the INTENSIVE HAIR MASK 180 ml (P195.00), BEAUTIFYING OIL 30 ml (P195.00) AND ANTI-FRIZZ SERUM 70 ml (P250.00).

Impressions: The Intensive hair mask is used after conditioner, I personally use hair mask atleast once or twice in a week, I leave it on for a few minutes especially when I go to the steam room and sauna. For Palmolive Expertique Intensive Hair mask, according to the label you can leave on for 2- 5 minutes then wash it off. For me after washing, this hair mask definitely gives you that cool feeling on the scalp and your hair is so smooth right after. Your hair feels light if that’s what you’re going for.

The anti -frizz serum, comes in a spray bottle and I since I don’t have frizzy hair, I just hit the ends of my hair then distribute evenly since it prevents fly away hair. This is applied on towel-dried hair. 

For the beautifying oil, 1-2 pumps is enough rub it first, apply to your roots and massage till the end of the hair. Don’t apply too much. and its better to apply it if you took a bath then your hair let it dry(t towel dried hair) then apply the oil. I wouldn’t suggest if you haven’t taken a shower, it makes the hair really oily,

Secrets Revealed! Carefree x Laybare

We all have our beliefs and misconceptions when it comes to using panty liners and shaving. Let me break it to you with what I have learned from #SecretsRevealedWithCarefreeXLaybare, Panty liners, girls, should be used EVERYDAY atleast change 2 times a day. For shaving It isn’t true, hair becomes thicker as it grows back. With hygiene, it is simple just keep yourself clean not only the outside but also in the inside, like what Gretchen Ho said LOVE YOURSELF is the most important thing. If you feel great in the inside, everything will follow. 

 We see women talk and share experiences about the best tips on makeup, skincare, and healthy lifestyle habits to keep themselves in tip-top shape. But behind closed doors, we find Filipinas spending many hours taking hidden rituals – intimate beauty secrets – that are undeniably integral to the foundations of their private beauty routines. It proves that for women, feeling beautiful all starts with feeling clean and fresh – especially ‘down there’. Rarely a topic of conversation, girls have been shying away from sharing, and sadly, even merely asking how and why they should take care for their most sensitive part of the body. Without enough opportunities for girls to discover and exchange their grooming secrets, women always feel that intimate hygiene is a restricted subject – but it doesn’t have to be.

This is where CAREFREE® and Lay Bare come in – two of the most trusted brands by Filipinas today that champion intimate grooming – teaming up for the first time to provide a platform that boldly allows women to get real together about their feminine hygiene needs, discover secret care tips for their private area, and ultimately, be proud of the intimate beauty secrets they keep that upgrade their beauty quotient and boost their overall confidence.

“We talked to women and found out that simply looking good is not enough to make them feel empowered and ready to take on anything. At the core of our findings is how feeling fresh and clean ‘down there’ is extremely important for all women to help her feel poised to conquer her endeavors. Just like the right outfit or makeup that makes you look good, the right feminine hygiene makes you feel even better,” said Claire Ericta, Brand Manager for CAREFREE®. “In addition to washing, adopting the daily habit of using CAREFREE® panty liners can help them feel clean and fresh down there throughout the day, everyday. You know that feeling when you have this secret source of confidence and self-assurance? It goes a long way and make women feel invincible to achieve their day-to-day hustle.”

Christine David, Lay Bare’s Senior Manager for Learning & Development and Service Delivery Champion, also echoes how intimate grooming is not just another vanity act but an integral part of hygiene rituals. “A proper intimate hygiene ritual for women does not just guarantee physical cleanliness,” shared David. “Lay Bare has been known for our Brazilian waxing services that help women not just to feel fresh, but provide the utmost hygienic benefits too. Feeling clean and fresh down there also gives you that extra boost of confidence when you feel and look your best as you set out to the world.”      

During the one-day only CAREFREE® x Lay Bare event, CAREFREE®’s Intimate Beauty Ambassador, Gretchen Ho, also took the stage to proudly reveal how her own intimate beauty secrets encourage her confidence while she navigates her transformative twenties as a volleyball star, celebrity host, and most importantly, as a woman. “I’m very happy to be here in this event where we can actually put this in the open because it is so valuable for us Filipinas to be able to take care of our intimate beauty. Because what you feel down there, is what you project to people. If there’s one thing I’ve got be sensitive about its my hygiene, especially down there,” shared Ho.

The CAREFREE® x Lay Bare Intimate Beauty Studio was designed to provide a fun, quirky but educational space for women to know more about intimate beauty grooming, and share their own intimate beauty secrets with others too. For CAREFREE® and Lay Bare, it all begins by pooling together brave and modern women to start the conversation about the personal, and sometimes, secret “rituals” and hygiene needs women deserve to realize and embrace – and today, they are finally taking it on.

Don’t miss your chance to elevate your intimate beauty rituals this February 2018 by visiting participating Lay Bare Waxing Salon branches to avail of free CAREFREE® panty liners. Visit the official Facebook page of CAREFREE® Philippines at www.facebook.com/CarefreePH for more information.

With the V7+ 24MP front-facing camera photos come out clear-cut, crisp, and natural-looking. Likewise, the 16MP rear camera, with its 64MP UHD that can produce detailed quality photos, blurred shots are a thing of the past. Night shots using the camera’s professional mode make photos come out are perfectly clear.

Moreover, the V7+ offers a face beauty feature for Vivo calls, so anyone is always ready to take a video call anytime, any day. When in a dimly-lit environment, Selfie Softlight goes to work offering soft but flattering illumination.

Vivo in our Hearts

To celebrate the holiday in true Filipino Christmas spirit, Vivo Philippines releases a special holiday video depicting a touching story of a widow, her children, and a husband and father they lost in a war.

The story revolved around a grieving wife and mother who tends to her small children on a Christmas eve when a group of carolers offered a rendition of ‘Silent Night’ outside their home. Laden with gifts and noche buena food, the carolers were then welcomed inside the home of the aggrieved family only for the former’s emotions to be stirred by a solitary portrait of the father of the home—a soldier who perished fighting for peace.

The Vivo special Christmas video is an instant hit amongst the family-oriented Filipinos, garnering 781,000 views, 4,212 shares and almost 41,000 likes within six days after its release on Vivo Philippines’ official Facebook page. Because of its theme centered on family, Christmas, togetherness, and gratitude, Vivo’s special Christmas video hits home for many Filipinos. The comments section abounds with emotional sentiments with messages of gratitude for the soldiers who fought to re-establish peace in Marawi. Some of the comments even expressed gratitude to Vivo for “giving [the audience] an avenue to thank the ones who enabled them to celebrate Christmas in peace.” “very meaningful and heartwarming! a tribute to all our soldiers and father! hats off to Vivo management for making this short film.”

Vivo, by way of the special Christmas video, shares and celebrates what a truly meaningful Christmas for Filipinos. Family, togetherness, empathy, and the spirit of giving make a Filipino Christmas like no one else in the world.

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.
