Salu-Salo at the 5th Filipino Bloggers Network Get Together Party

It was a night of fun, surprises and sharing during the annual Get Together party of the Filipino Bloggers Network (FBN), one of the most active bloggers group in the country, last December 12, 2017 at Salu Restaurant in Quezon City.

With almost 2,000 members across the country, FBN continues to expand as it provides a venue for Pinoy bloggers to interact with other members through discussions and posting opportunities from different brands and PR partners as moderated by co-admins Divine Reyes and Richard Mamuyac. MetroBuzz Bloggers, led by its admin Lariza Garcia, even made the event more fun-filled and exciting in its fifth year.

The few hours of fun-filled event were not enough thus the next get-together of the group promises to be bigger and better.

Never Let Lose a Strand of Your Patience


Have you ever experienced a day wherein nothing seems to go well, that no matter how you try to choose the right path, you keep making the wrong turn? Just like having a bad hair day, no matter how many times you comb your hair, it just would not budge. 

Life can be challenging at times but there will always be a way to resolve these challenges and come out victorious. Having this in mind will be easy to keep your patience and continue to move forward. 

Just like losing strands of your hair due to factors beyond your control, you too can do something. 
  • Eat healthy – Eating the right food can alter your mood. Having low-level of folic acid in your body can cause anxiety, hence, food such as asparagus, avocado, salmon, and almond are recommended to fight stress hormones. 
  • Stay calm – Listen to comforting music and reading feel-good stories can help switch you to a calm mood. 
  • Exercise – Exercise releases endorphin that can relieve you from stress and anxiety. 
  • Supplement –Taking in Vitamins such as B-complex can alter mood swings.

NOVUHAIR turns favor with Holiday Bash Promo


So you’ve got your festive outfit set and the fancy gift wrapped for your “monito” or “monita”. All that’s left undone is a party season-perfect hairstyle. 

The fresh out of the shower look can be seductive yet temporary. Blame it to tropical climate, it can spoil your appearance, besides making you feel sweaty and stale. The heat and humidity brought about by extreme weather condition, likewise, dries out the locks easily and make it more fragile. 

Adding damage to your delicate strands are the chemical contents of various products on hand. From shampoo to conditioner and hair treatment, down to styling goods to groom it to your liking, their harsh synthetic materials jeopardize the natural oil and luster of your mane.

Because you are what you eat, the fate of your crowning glory is in the plate. Your diet must have the correct balance of vitamins and minerals to supply hair with all that it needs to become shiny and strong. So don’t overindulge, especially this time of the year when gastronomic feasts are spread almost everywhere you go. Be careful on what you take in, thinking that it’s also what you feed your ‘do.

Have a Happy Holidays with Svelt’i



It is indeed the most wonderful time of the year. From frenzied last-minute shopping sprees to multiple Christmas parties, we really can’t deny that the holidays are just around the corner. But, despite all the infectious merriment that the holidays bring, we also cannot deny the fact that all the stress the holiday season brings can absolutely take a toll on your skin with all the late-night partying, non-stop eating, and mad traffic we all have to deal with.

So how do we deal with these skin SOS and still be as glowing and youthful during the holidays?


ALWAYS KEEP HYDRATED

The holidays are the perfect excuse to indulge in booze and stay late at night especially with all the Christmas get-togethers you need to attend. But keep in mind that too much alcohol and less sleep can take a toll on the appearance of your skin. “Skincare addresses two concerns: wellness and aesthetics or our sense of being attractive, that’s why we do have to take care of our skin and not take it for granted most especially during the holidays which can be really stressful,” emphasizes Dr. Lalaine Salazar, Medical Director of the SvelT’i Health and Beauty Centre in Timog Avenue, Quezon City. 

Drinking lots of water can help keep your skin hydrated but there are also other ways of doing so.

Happy Mail + November Craft Haul: Happy Me!



Thank heavens for Manilenya friends, and more thankful for this Manilenya "Crafter" friend who understands my craziness with craft stuff!

A few weeks ago, we were planning to shop online at AliExpress with washi tapes, clear stamps, and die cuts (for her). However, it didn't push through because of the payment option - we still prefer PayPal. *wink*

Until one day, she told me that Landmark has washi tapes, stickers, and tin cans; just like the ones found in AliExpress. And the rest, my dear friends, is history. *happy dance*

Let's take a look at my haul slash happy mail I got yesterday.

This is what's in the parcel - a mix of stickers, washi tapes, and tin cans. I just love everything about them, things like these make me happy! ^_^

Discovering Colleen Poster Color - Gold and Silver



Never have I thought that I will work with Colleen again. But time came and we're here doing artworks together. If you're a 90s kid like me, you probably know who or what I'm talking about.

 Colleen is a well-known brand of colored pencil; my mom's favorite actually. Whenever we buy school supplies she would always want me to get Colleen colored pencils. And if I remember correctly, I had those with dual color, like a twin tip. Nostalgic! That's why I'm glad that after several years, I'm using Colleen once again through these poster colors.


So why did I bought these?
