FitFlop™ Rock n' Rola Fashion Experience at Chimes Boutiques #FitFlopForSuperwoman #FitFlopRola #ChimesExclusive

I can't tell how many times Chimes Boutiques invited me to be part of their events and activities, but due to a busy schedules,  I was unable to attend it. My schedule is always a challenge, but this time I said "YES" to the Rock n' Rola launching held at Chimes - Felcris Centrale.

July 8, 2016 ROLA  was launched.

Who insist not to go to a FitFlop event, all girls want to be part of this once in a lifetime gathering. When it comes to fashion and style there is always a room for a woman to showcase their desire on a prevailing taste of new creation and design.

A woman's clothes says about her personality, same as with the footwear she wears. What women wear can give a powerful insight into who they are too!

#FitFlopForSuperwoman to live up to the idea of a STRONG WOMAN with a sense when it comes to classy fashion, trend, fad, look and mode.

FITFLOP™ is considered to be the most casual of casual shoes. And you can pair it with the clothes you like...NO RULES to follow!

Well, for some others, FitFlop™ get a bad rap. Some will tell you that they're never appropriate. Hey, your very very wrong --- the fact of the matter is, there are times when FitFlop™ are not only appropriate,  but they're actually ideal to wear anywhere.

Make it be a ROCK n' ROLL, RUGGED or CASUAL #OOTD! Here is the game which I really enjoyed as part of the participant.

There are 3 groups consist of 3 or 4 members. We are given 5 minutes to dress up a mannequin to a ROCK n' ROLA #OOTD and winners will get a pair of a new ROLA and a special bag from Anthill Fabric Gallery.

Our group got the 1st place, but for us we want to believe that we are the winning group. Why? Well, when we talk about ROCK n' ROLL we usually associate it or pair it with BLACK colors or a BLACK LEATHER JACKET. But for us, modern Filipina --- ROCK n' ROLL can also be associated with different colors. Same us with the concept FitFlop wants to implicate to all their clients --- simple, classy but ROCKIN' in style!

FitFlop is ideal to wear anywhere make it be at the BEACH and EVERYDAY CASUAL WEAR. For some, they wear it at the office (but considering offices had a dress code) you should be aware of the sanctions. But even there's a rule in the office, I see some others bring it with them to their office, easy to slip into a bag, making them great for wearing to and from work, still you have that Professional Look.


These styles are exclusive to the department store's branches in Felcris Centrale, Abreeza and Governor Sales.

The event was ended with blast of fun, delicious food and freebies. Special thanks to Ms. Ren of Chimes Boutique for the invites.


Back To School Essentials for Tweens #BacktoSchool #Fashion #SchoolFashion #TweensFashion

I am a mother of a two tweens even if we have large age gap between us,  I see to it that when I go shopping for their school essentials they will love it! The fact that we have different preferences what I do I go with their preferences and associate with their generations.


I know when it comes to school fashion, teenagers are heavily influenced by social media and know better what's IN or OUT. This year, they are using gadgets rather than clothing (since my tweens have school uniform), to say that you are "IN STYLE".

And if it is the first day of school and you want to make a good impression to your classmates, friends and teachers you should have the confidence to show them what you got (but not to look boastful, it's another story).

Here, I'm sharing with you the things that my two tweens requested me to buy. Though I did not buy them all, but still I consider other things as essentials for them aside from the gadgets they want.

Trendy Fashion Mouth Mask #Fashion #Trending #MouthMask #DesignerSurgicalFaceMask

Passing the streets from uptown to the bustling road of downtown, it's becoming more and more obvious to see people wearing surgical mask or mouth mask in public. And for me as far as I can remember, it's a phenomenon that's long been common in other countries which have SARS outbreak and BIRD FLU which cause a lot of panic in Asia and across immigrant populations in the US. Plus, the deadly EBOLA virus disease that give more fears to the Asian immigrant, that even the infection dropped in zero - people aren't taking any chances - despite the fact the authorities already release a statement that Ebola is not airborne-transmitted disease

However, to maintain that kind of look you have to get the best antidote for age and that is to maintain a healthy lifestyle, eat right and keep brain active --- means you have to exercise, work and not feel stress.

These are methods to retain your YOUTH and HEALTHY LIFESTYLE. But what if, those italic-highlighted words stated  above will be given to you at a one-time experience by a Machine Bed called the No -UV Light Red Light COLLAGEN Machine Bed Therapy at Be-ing Suites?

My Collagen Machine Bed Therapy Experience

This exciting scientific technology discovery uses Photo Rejuvenation via RED LIGHT TECHNOLOGY as a natural, safe and relaxing method that boost your body collagen in order to produce smooth skin,  reduces wrinkles and creates more youthful looking skin.

I'm a bit hesitant to try this therapy, because I am a Claustrophobic person. I am afraid to enter a closed room or elevator, thinking that I can't escape.

Two days convincing and I said YES! Why not fight my fear after all it will just take me 20 minutes inside a coffin like bed.

So here I am prepping out, need to take off my clothes, etc...

Excited and a bit nervous.
Whew! Can I do this or do I need to back-out!

I am ready!

They give me goggles to protect my eyes from UV rays.
Anyway, I lay down and have a good positioning inside the machine. The staff get my towel and half-close the upper tube and set the machine to 20 minutes only, as stated in the manual.

As I waited to end my 20 minute session, I tried to relax and sing at the same time with the music played inside the
machine. This is to keep you upbeat and not to feel bored.

Over a period of time you will be able to feel that the machine bed is wet as if you pee - but it's not, the wet means you sweat a lot.

The machine alarm and that's the end of my 20 minute session.

Finally, I am finish and I've notice that my skin become radiant and smooth. The long term use can give you great skin.

They serve me a glass of water to drink to keep me hydrated and they also ask me to apply Virgin Lotion via OZONISM to keep my skin hydrated too!

Authentic Japanese Hair Salon Experience and How To Book at Be-ing Suites Salon #BeingSuitesDavao #BeingSalon #Beauty #HairTreatment #NailShine

Beauty in Japan is a serious business, as for told to us by Chairman Hideki Ota of Be-ing Suites Davao during our PR Social Media Blogger Invitation. 

Photo credit to Busyqueenphils

 When decided to put up a training school here in Davao City, his only aimed is to introduce the Japanese art of hair styling by training Filipino hairstylists; housing both Japanese trainers and Filipino students at the same time offering future job opportunities in Japanese salons abroad. But the idea changes, as the management decided to open up its doors to business travelers and tourists. Read more HERE.

Before I divulge my beauty experience, let me tell you a brief idea of what a Japanese Hair Salon based on what Mr. Ota explained for, why 'Beauty Salon' in Japan is different to Western salon or any salon here in the Philippines.

A Japanese beauty salon approach is a combination of a kanji character with both "graduate school" and "hospital". The Japanese hairstylists outpaces the Western handling of hair treatment, typically because in a Japanese salon you will expect a thorough scalp massage and drink service + shoulder and hand massages and in-depth style counseling.

All of these, I agree because I've experienced it during my session at the Be-ing Suites Salon.

Be-ing Suites Salon - The place is awesome! So spacious and clean. The suites itself is energy efficient and environment-friendly.

The Scissors - They use expensive scissors made only for the professional hairstylists.

The Proper Handling of Scissors

The Expert Shampoo Service

The first day session, I get a Hair Treatment from Be-ing Suites Salon trained staff. And yes, I am very, very happy to get a thorough shampooing. Well, it's pretty common with all the other salon to get a service like this, but the only different is Japanese hair salons give ample attention to your scalp.

Using the Automatic Shampoo Machine, designed to provide comfort to customers especially pregnant and senior clients. And Hair Products all are from Milbon Inc., the No. 1 distributor of hair products for salon in Japan.

Sounds weird, but surely you will appreciate how the staff spends many minutes massaging your scalp and identifying problem areas.

Trained Staff

In my case, I really had a problem with dandruff. Good thing that the staff ask me if there's any areas that are itchy or sensitive, so that while massaging  my scalp,  she will also do the scrubbing sending tingles down my spine. A massage which you only experience when you are in the bedroom. So relaxing and refreshing!

***By the way, they used Warm Water in shampooing hair and massaging your scalp.


A hair color chart ideas for deciding which shades to pick. That will help match your hair type to the style you want.

Next is checking your hair and scalp again. And they will decide what hair color treatment to be use, whether Schwarzkopf Professional Essensity Organic Hair Color, ammonia-free hair color with Phytolipid Technology.

or Shwarzkopf Professional Igora Royal True Hair Color, offers outstanding performance for true color partnership with premium quality products, delivering 100% performance - even in the most challenging situations.

In my case, they prefer to use organic hair color, suited for my scalp problem --- not too strong, so that it will not irritate my scalp!


What's nice is that they use digital scale measurement in mixing, to get the color precisely without damaging your hair.

And because I have a colored hair, they do is to correct the color better.


For 45 minutes, correcting my hair color, they wrap my hair and waited for another minutes.

And after 25 minutes, they wash my hair and massage my scalp again.

You will see here on my before picture that my hair color is drastically different. It's not properly distributed.


The end result is a mix-combination of red and yellow,  but now with a few fixes, my colored treated hair is perfectly distributed.


And little bit of wavy hair to give volume and to Make a Dramatic Change.


Aside from having an automatic shampoo machine for the hair & scalp, they also have for the nails - The JAPANESE NAIL SHINE.

A Japanese Manicure using Triple Glad Super Shine, the shine will last for 2 weeks.

 First use the SMOOTHER to buff and smooth the nail plate.

Remove the dust and dirt from the prepared nail plate, during the process of polishing, small pieces of debris can make the shine uneven.

Using a buckskin buffer already have a beeswax paste and talc powder ingredients that make your nails shine.

Lastly, you can put primer (optional).

The Result.

First time to experienced an authentic Japanese Beauty Hair and Nail Make-over and thanks to +Busyqueenphils, Ms. Cheryl and Chairman Hideki Ota for inviting us.
