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,

This Rainy Season, Start Fresh with Seattle’s Best Coffee

A great take on coffee + art together can turn out to be great and fun! Who doesn’t love coffee and art.

Anina Rubio creates stellar art pieces, you can see her work around BGC. Her style is modern and fresh just like SBC. She demonstrated her latest art project which is the  highlight of SBC Highstreet’s glass window.  Giving it a fresh take  and her personal touch because she loves her coffee in the morning. 

“I’m very much inspired by nature. You can see it in 98 percent of my artworks. This mural is very personal because I start my day with a shot of espresso or an Iced Americano, and I also have a backyard full of plants, which is a similar setting to what you have here at SBC BGC,” – Anina Rubio

Along with that the series of workshops lined up – The SBC Perkspective, a series of quarterly pocket events that will offer talks, workshops, and informal meet-ups aimed at giving a fresh perspective on how we create and view art, music, photography and other creative processes.

Inspired by Anina’s  work, the handy SBC tumblers were so fun to decorate and personalize according to your personality. I had a small contribution on the mural just the details on the leaves, I think mine looked like chicken feet hehehe

SBC is known for serving FRESH anytime! I personally know this because while I was reviewing for my board exam way back at  SBC – Tomas Morato, there were open till 4am (on selected days) so when I fell to pull an all nighter SBC was my go to- fresh meals, drinks and coffee. Till now my SBC meals and coffee never fails to be always fresh.

Introducing Vivo Smart Phone X21 in the Philippines Featuring It’s In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology

Extraordinary AI Photography experience set new industry benchmarks for mobile innovation

Manila, 21 June 2018 – Vivo on Thursday released the X21 flagship smartphone in the Philippines to bring users a brand new and futuristic unlocking experience with industry-leading In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology. Combined with its FullView™ Display, AI photography and upgraded face recognition technology, the X21 is the ideal mobile partner for the tech-savvy consumer.

Through its continuous research into user needs, Vivo has consistently pursued innovation to solve consumer pain points. Having invested in long-term research and development to overcome the problems posed by mass producing In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology, Vivo is finally bringing this secure and intuitive unlocking solution to more consumers. Vivo has also made major technology breakthroughs with its FullView™ Display and AI photography featured in the X21.

Two unlocking technologies to bring double convenience

Vivo has been the industry pioneer of In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology from showcasing its first prototype demonstration to successful mass production. To ensure user expectations for this technology are being met, Vivo has tasked its teams to innovate and perfect this technology on the new X21 to provide a reliable and secure unlocking solution to all consumers.

Vivo X21 replaces the rear fingerprint sensor with the latest In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology. This allows the sleek and unified design of the smartphone to be preserved without the need for a rear fingerprint sensor. With mere a flick of the wrist and a press on the screen to unlock, this convenient and seamless process is intuitive for any user.

Other than In-Display Fingerprint Scanning Technology, X21 also offers upgraded facial recognition technology with Face Access which scans users’ facial features for enhanced security.

Impressive FullView™ experience with a screen-to-body ratio of over 90%

Vivo X21 has a 6.28-inch 19:9 FHD+ FullView™ Display. With a super slim notch, and 1.66mm side bezels, it achieves a 90.3% screen-to-body ratio to provide a wider viewing experience compared to other similar-sized phones. Vivo has even enhanced its software to support the notch and developed a notification bar that maintains an immersive experience. Maximizing the beauty of the display, Vivo X21 uses P3 display color management technology and supports a P3 wide color gamut to ensure more accurate, natural and saturated colors.

Taking phone design to the extraordinary, X21 has ditched the metal body for a new 3D glass back cover. Every arc and curve on the back cover are ergonomically optimized to ensure comfort in your hand, with only 3.1mm thick in the middle. More than just smooth to the touch, X21 uses a new color-blending technique, which creates a unique luster that creates its elegant look.

AI Photography Brings a Superior User Experience

X21 continues Vivo’s heritage of photography leadership, featuring 12MP (24 million photographic units) front and rear cameras with Dual Pixel Sensors. The secondary rear camera is 5MP. Thanks to the larger photographic area of each pixel, X21’s camera significantly boosts picture clarity. On top of this, the X21 features fast focusing technology that rivals DSLRs, which enables it to focus fast and capture depth of field data in every pixel.

Vivo X21’s AI Scene Recognition not only identifies night, sports, vibration or back light scenarios, but it can also detect and identify 18 tags and 140 scenarios such as portraits, food and plants as it shoots. It then actively adjusts photography settings and effects to make it easy for the user to capture a great photo.

By upgrading Vivo’s photography technologies with AI, Vivo’s AI Face Beauty and AI HDR features can identify the subject’s sex, skin tone and surrounding lighting environment to create the ideal facial enhancement settings, even in a backlit environment. With AI Face Beauty learning the user’s specific preferences for beauty, it can generate custom beautification effects tailored to each user. Think of X21 as your personal make-over team packed into one intelligent device.

System level optimization enhances mobile entertainment

Hardware forms the basis of any user experience. The X21 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660AIE chip which can effectively utilize CPU resources for complex AI and neural computing. Its 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM increases the speed of launching, loading and switching even large and complex mobile games. With the large storage space, users can go wild downloading all the applications, movies and photos they want without the hassle of clearing space.

While gaming, the system will automatically adjust the CPU to optimize performance according to the game’s resources for a smoother gaming experience. The Game Mode on X21 even prevents accidental touch operations, ensuring gamers only make the moves they intended.

X21 continues Vivo’s Hi-Fi legacy and houses the AK4376A audio chipset. It is also equipped with Deep Field technology, which was developed by Vivo to provide panoramic surround, mega bass, clear voice effects and various environmental audio effects, allowing users to tailor their audio experience.

Grocery shopping at PUSHKART.PH

I personally love doing my own grocery shopping except paying for it – kidding haha

Doing groceries has given me a full grasp of what being independent feels like – wants vs. needs. As we look forward to the digital age, but our personal times gets consumed too especially as an independent living student and hardworking millennial. There would be times we have no time to do groceries, I know the feeling when I was in college and the early days of me as a working girl. Thank goodness for the digital age, you can do things online. Finally an online grocery shopping – PUSHKART.PH

PUSHKART.PH is an online grocery service, developed by a group of young Filipino Millennials that aims to ensure fast, convenient, and safe delivery of groceries right at your doorstep. – Pushkart.ph

How?

By using your phone or desktop browser, type Pushkart.ph then you’ll be landing on their main site. First, create an account by giving all your basic information, contacts and shipping address (Please make sure to do this before you start shopping). After filling all the data needed, you can now proceed to your shopping!

PUSHKART.PH have different categories to shop, when it comes to variety of brands it’s just limited but the usual brands that we Pinoys consume. Maybe as the days go by Pushkart.ph will be expanding more varieties. Pushkart.ph is in partnership with Fisher Supermarket. You can read more about Pushkart.ph by heading to <FAQS> (Frequently asked questions, Billings and Payment & Delivery)

As you shop all the things you need, it is time to check out, let me inform you there is a P199 Delivery charge since it will be delivered in front of your doorstep- this is to save you time, gas (if you have a vehicle) and not carrying heavy bags back home.

What I personally like about PUSHKART.PH, you can schedule what time and day you prefer your groceries to be delivered. Incase your delivery comes late they send a text within the time frame you chose to let you know the reason why they are late etc. Payment options, can be cash or card.

Schedule your delivery

TIP: Once you check out, make sure this pops out showing your order reference number and you’ll get also get one in your personal email (part of the data you gave) – to guarantee your delivery.

Upon arrival of my groceries, it came in a sealed box and don’t forget to show your personal ID so they can clarify that it is really you.

The advantage is that they select the best quality to be delivered to you especially the organic (like fruits and veggies) kudos to that.

Disadvantage for those who chose CASH PAYMENT an option , I ordered my groceries to be delivered on SUNDAY (11 AM- 1 PM) but mine came late, they texted at 1 PM that due to so many shipments of groceries was the cause of delay which I understand personally because Sunday is a rest day for most and convenient day to be delivered. Since mine was cash, I have to be there once delivered or you can authorize (make a letter and give a copy of your ID) as another option.

So if you guys are busy and have no time to do their groceries why not try PUSHKART.PH and ENJOY YOUR PERSONAL SHOPPING EXPERIENCE!

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.
