FAB@15: FLAWLESS’ BIGGEST BEAUTY BLOWOUT

flawless-logo

I’ve been trying to tell everyone that I am low maintenance but I guess everything comes with age when you start to realise that you must take care of your skin.  I’ve been an avid Flawless client since I came back from Thailand and I feel that I have the same flawless secret, nailing that #nofilter, #nomakeuplook with Maxene, Divine and Jodi.

“Whenever I think of a Flawless milestone, be it an award, a clinic opening, a new treatment or a product, I always tell myself that it’s the loyalty of our clients that brought us this,” shares Rubby. “That’s why we make sure to return the favor by giving them what want and deserve on National Flawless Day.”

Unscrambled Stripes

Sven will be turning four months this coming Thursday and I can finally say, I’ve survived the first three months of being a parent.  It was hard, it was slow but it was all worth-it.  I still remember that blissful night I gave birth to him, it was the highest and most unforgettable moment I’ve experienced in my life.  Sven was the greatest miracle, he was our precious gift.

So last weekend, while wearing this striped dress which is very effective in hiding my mommy tummy and a mesh cardigan to complete the entire look.  I took an hour or two to iron out my hair but as expected my natural wave came out.  And my bold lipstick from Revlon, I rewarded myself to look good and dress up during our dinner with my family.  I’m still carrying that post-pregnancy weight but for now my ultimate goal is to gain back my strength and enjoy my new role as a mother.

How about you my fellow new mothers? Are you adjusting well in your new role?  Share in your insight.

Going back to the place where it all started.  Our family went on a mini getaway, it was both exciting and a challenge for me.  As a new mom with a two-month old baby in tow it wasn’t easy but I was very lucky to have a sweet and well-behaved infant.  He did not give me a hard time while traveling.  He was sleeping while we were on the road, eats during feeding time and of course during night time he was very behaved and slept early to give Mommy a good night’s rest.  So here’s some snapshots of my travel to Bacolod.  Enjoy and kisses everyone!

I love rainy days, for me it’s my favorite weather especially when you have a tiny munchkin huddled up closely with you indoors.  It’s the start of the monsoon in the Philippines and I don’t particulary like getting wet, I just love staying indoors, drinking my favorite cup of coffee in my favorite knitted sweater from Promod.

What about you? Do you love the rainy days?

Revisiting Suyac Island

I’ve never seen a place blessed with naturally beautiful, exquisite flora and fauna with abundance of hidden islands and the sea.  I’ve been to Sagay City a couple of times but I wasn’t able to fully explore their neighboring islands.  I was asked to visit Suyac Island recently but I declined because I can’t leave my baby yet and I am also busy for the entire month of July.  So to take part of the experience, I shall be blogging my personal journey when we visited Suyac Island last year.

While me and my friends were doing our Negros trip, we stayed at Sagay City for three days to attend a wedding and visited the boyf (now the husband) back then.  On our very last day we visited Suyac Island.

Suyac Island is a Mangrove Eco-park, it’s pretty cheap, tranquil and it’s something different from the normal island hopping we usually do in Cebu.  You’re jump off point is the port of Old Sagay, where there are tourism staff ready to assist you.  My friend and J bought foods to be cooked in the island.  The fees being collected are used to fund their coastal clean-up and for the island’s eco-tourism project, so you see, that’s money put into good use.

In the island, you will find century-old mangroves and a sturdy footbridge which takes you around the island to see and experience nature up close and personal.

It’s best if you visit the island during low tide and wait for the water to rise during high tide, so that you can walk around the mangroves and enjoy the mini dipping pool once the water rises.  They also have the perfect viewing deck and a mini sand bar if you want to bathe under the sun.

With each picturesque view, Suyac Island is surely a great place to visit with your family and friends, not only you have the perfect vacation but you are also helping in maintaining nature’s wonderful creation.
