Be passionate about a man, a project, a house. It’s an instant facelift and do only what suits you: The perfect ZEN attitude. Happy New Year 2012 cheers!
Hi everyone! Few hours from now we will welcome the year 2012 🙂 and before it ends, I made it a point that I will finish organizing half of my vanity desk.
I was so excited to buy everything when I was doing a little shopping 🙂 The little spot at the Landmark is so heavenly for make-up organizer fanatic!
Perfect for holding my everyday make-up brushes 🙂
All of my favorite products that I use everyday are all accessible now and the rest are well kept in dura box and train cases such as make up tools and cosmetics.
Do you have a hobby like I do? 🙂 Aside from being passionate in collecting beauty tools… I am also fond in collecting comics and random genre of books. This year and coming 2012, I decided to collect all the books regarding to beauty, lifestyle and home.
These books are all in my bed side and I feel so good reading them all the time. I finished reading Bobby Brown and Universal Beauty 🙂 but then again, I am still reading it all over and over together with half-way finishing Parisian Chic. All these are so fantastic and really boost self-confidence. I am also applying everything that I learn from these babies 🙂
I also do book scrapping since I love taking pictures and updating my vision board! plus writing.
Hobby is a regular activity or interest that is undertaken for pleasure, typically done during one’sleisure time. I highly suggest to you my readers to start having a hobby like the days when you were still younger 🙂 It’s therapeutic and little joys in life. Even you are so busy, try to find time whether it’s “me-time” or bonding with your loved ones 🙂
Thank you to my dearest Aunt (Ninang) Gina Obsequio who gave me the Universal Beauty and all the gifts without any occasion that I am eagerly requesting as pamangkin hehehe!
To my dearest best friend who is the most generous friend ever!(Parisian Chic)
I am so happy to celebrate my 27th Birthday with my husband and friends. My husband surprised me after work by going to amusement park which is never missed since I am 18 years old 🙂 It is just that, I didn’t expect that we were going since I already decided to eat at Yang Chow located at Centris. I am a huge fan of yang chow rice and I hope that I remember the name of that restaurant right hehe… then gave me the Havaianas limited edition of Wonder Woman!!! amazing.
I also felt proud owning a new toy named “sisig” that he won from the basketball in amusement park 🙂
Then not to forget my best friend Mylene who always love to shower me with beautiful things!
I decided to open the other one on Christmas day since it was beautifully wrapped 🙂 and read the Parisian chic as soon as she gave it to me! I love Parisian lifestyle and I’m so in love with it (clothing, lifestyle, interior and taste) Reading books, collecting and smelling them makes me happy. She also gave me the Wonder Woman T-shirts that was a limited edition in Folded in Hang but instead she got the beautiful shirts from DC Comics store! I love Wonder Woman so much ❤
I am just so thankful for another year that God has given to me and I am indeed blessed especially having a good relationships that I mostly invest before anything else.
Bought this at The Bead Shop (SM North) inspired by Bianca Gonzales mantra bracelet. She is one of my favorite blogger 🙂
I am wearing this since I started teaching and order another one (customized) saying: If I fall, I will rise again.
At first my husband was making fun of me because he knows my staple accessories in my everyday outfit (Jewelmer pearl earrings, wedding band & engagement ring, gold blings (not together with pearls ha!)) My style is classic but I think I can try this edgy bracelet since it’s a good reminder while in the middle of hustle and bustle of life outside home 🙂 Besides, I have my owl necklace when I feel youthful hehe…
Back from long hiatus! I’ve been busy from my part time job as a Teacher 🙂 It really makes me happy! I love my students, from adults to kiddos… gosh, time flies. Anyway, it’s 24th of December and honestly we just made our Christmas shopping today. I am not complaining tho’ because I am happy that we are both busy working and able to pay bills and enjoy other luxury in life that money can buy and share it too with other people.
2011 has been good to me. There are a lot of good and bad things that has happened to me but am thankful to experienced it both because it made a better person which I consider as a humbling sophistication . Also, last night I received a call from a friend that brought good news about a new career that I am going to do come February after my first season in teaching. I am just so happy that my life is not in a rut, that am able to do all the things I want to and to be so much loved by my husband, family and friends.
I just have one wish for this year: To be healthy.
That is the downside of my 2011 aside from so much-drama in life haha! I had Neuralgia, Vertigo, Acidic stomach (I love and hate COKE!) and fatty liver. Would you believe, I’ve been avoiding pork and beef meat for a month now?! I can’t no longer eat at fast food, drink coke! eat citrus fruits. I can’t take risk anymore, the pain is so pain in the A! plus my medicines is so expensive, I ca even buy pair of shoes in SM Parisian every week haha! Thanks to my Dr. Husband who took care of me during the fall of my moody health.
When you become a wife, your time and decision is not based on yours alone… not like before when we were still single and imagine what more for other homemakers that is already a mother 🙂 That’s why I would like to share to you some of my “weapons” as a homemaker and a career woman without kids yet.
I admire all the wifey’s who can do well in all areas (mother, wife, business/career woman, me time, sister, daughter, daughter-in-law and a whole lot more) As a woman, we are expected to be multitaskers. Truth to be told, sometimes we forget ourselves- which is a no-no.
I am so into woman empowerment and hail to Beyonce Knowles for always making strong statements in her songs and videos as well. Remember “Who run the world- G I R L S” yeah, I like the song and it is on my ipod playlist.
In this song, DANCE FOR YOU… it shows some appreciation for his man to all the wonderful things he has done for her. Sometimes, actions speaks louder than words! 🙂 Will I dance for my man? YES!
There are 3 (three) things why I am a beauty addict:
1. It makes me happy to take care of myself inside/out.
2. To inspire the ladies who sometimes forget themselves.
3. To be always look good for my man.
We don’t have a helper, I do all things for my husband personally and I am good with it combined with practice, trial and errors plus advice from my grandma and aunts.
I do our laundry, cooking, cleaning, sewing- everything and I need to get ready for office by 6:30 a.m. How I do it? (have a clear and peaceful mind haha) I wake up earlier to cook brekky for him and will leave a cooked food or easy to prepare lunch. I’m home by 6 p.m. and sometimes I still manage to go to market and buy fresh ingredients for our dinner.
We do our grocery every week and I am learning to cook a lot of different recipes but when we are both in a rush, I must admit preserved foods and having dinner together in a restaurant is our last option. When it comes to laundry, during week ends I make sure everything is well done and thank you for laundry nets because it makes our undergarments intact (no to bacon undies!) I also try to do the laundry after office hours in every 2-3 days so it will not pile up. I am a sucker for econo pack laundry powder and it saves a lot!
When it comes to cleaning, during week days… I clean every night after serving dinner and checking a lot of things. Because I don’t want to disturb my sleeping husband during the wee hours 🙂 Then its like spring cleaning during weekends. As a wife with no helper and a husband who is always busy in business? I don’t know how I do it 🙂 That’s why I love Wonderwoman haha.
I also make sure that our nails are both clean and thank God, there’s a nearby beauty salon in our place which only takes 5 minutes away from our home. It’s part of my role to check it 🙂 because what our partners looks and all- reflects on us.
As a wife, aside from being all around in the house and everything- just always remember how our partners fell in love with us. Di lang sa kabaitan natin, sweetness and all. Aminin, para rin tayong trophy sa buhay nila. Sa dami ng ginagawa natin, damay mo pa ang drama sa buhay, one of our responsibility as a wife is to look good, smell fresh and make our husband want us more. Lalo na ngayon, 24/7 na magkasam.. challenging ang mystery 🙂
I love when my husband wants to hug and kiss me every night and day so I make sure bukod sa pagiging all around sa bahay, all around din dapat sa bedroom LOL totoo naman e. I have a lot of lingerie and skincare products to make sure its smooth and silky even my hair strands. I always make sure I look great before I go to sleep, kaya kahit bagong gising cute pa din. I even have mint candies beside my bed 🙂 I am so ready, much more ready than a girl scout is.
I also give time going to waxing salon and to exercise no matter what and I have a goal to be more healthier but being fat is not an excuse not to look and feel great about yourself.
Moving on, even at home I make sure my “pambahay” is cute. I always make sure I look good and sweet to my husband 🙂 marami pa akong gustong i-share as a wife but I think this is becoming a novel.
Part of being a good wife is that, I always make sure I have time for everyone too. They make me feel refreshed like girl bonding with friends and my family. I make sure that my world is bigger and less negative vibes! Di maiiwasan yun pero, hangat maari, cut the bad vibes.
Also, aside from the insane time management- don’t forget to pray. It helps to have a relationship with God 🙂
’till next time!
President & Founder of SNOE: Ms. Jen Gerodias Diaz
I heard a lot of good reviews about SNOE and was so thrill to meet the President and founder behind the intriguing stylish and high-end cosmetics which is a local brand. Yep, you heard it right… our very own.During our meeting, I couldn’t help but notice how truly beautiful Jen in her age (35) I even asked her what’s her secret haha!
She’s very passionate when it comes to skincare and worships SPF which is contagious.
SNOE is named after the only daughter of Jen, Justine Emmanuella Diaz or Noe for short.
When Noe was born, everyone who would see Noe would say she is a white as snow. Hence the name is SNOE. The logo is the Snoe snow flake:
I love Snow flake, in fact it is the design of my wedding cake 🙂 That’s why I fell in love with the design of SNOE. It has a fine taste especially with the packaging and store lay out! Moving on, aside from being stylish and high-end cosmetics it really delivers beauty and value for money. It was created to cater and benefit all kinds of consumers as SNOE believes that every woman deserves the best and can reach their fullest potential.
SNOW is dedicated in understanding the value of health, beauty and passionately pursue to serve the consumers’ daily beauty needs. The products that is available in the market will have more to come as the continue to create new products to exceed customer expectations.
Soon this brand will be a Filipino market leader in cosmetics, SNOE in no doubt will be the biggest global Filipino brand in no time. The brand represented by the snow flake that symbolizes the uniqueness and diversity of each individual.
Jen showed me her SNOE store in Glorietta and met one of her pioneer staff who assisted me to take a closer look and try some samplers I’m interested with…
This Holiday season, SNOE also offers a perfect gift set for lovely ladies!
As I continue to observe and try the products like a kid in a candy store, these caught my attention:
I am a sucker for lip balm! from Burts bee, Carmex to EOS (which is the one I love to use right now) Beso Balm of SNOE is kinda interesting as it plumps, soothes,protects and FRESHENS Breath!!! it has even a warning: Prolonged use may attract the opposite gender and cause intense flirting. Oh lala 🙂
I really want to try EMU (for short) as I am into total skin care. It has grade pure EMU oil (ACAI BERRY + SINGKAMAS) it promises to be forever young 🙂
I love whitening products and this one is for every skin type, from dryness to breakouts to fine lines!
I am so intrigued with Stem Cell products, I haven’t tried anything with Stem Cell and this is interesting huh…
I love this sun block because it is not greasy and Paraben free!!! Its like you have nothing on that any other lotion makes you feel 🙂
Another interesting product! it is Cleopatra’s secret to incredible skin. it contains real milk to gently buff away rough and dry skin. It has sea salt that will exfoliate to make the skin bright and smooth all over the body.
It smells scrumptious, light and refreshing! It feels lusciously good about yourself minus the calories 🙂 It is also moisturizing and contains anti-oxidants.
For shoe lovers (like me) I think this is good for us for foot whitening spa kit!
I used this product every night for 4 days up to present and I am loving the effect 🙂 I am still young yet I am crazy with anti-aging products. This moisturizer is also good for whitening and contains collagen! It delays the effects of aging.
Will surely buy this again once I empty the bottle!
I use this during work days as a primer and it works well with my make-up and doesn’t made me break out. Yipee 🙂
Will get back to you once I finish this one:
I use this soap during night time because of the (smell) It has natural ingredients filled with high-grade whitening ingredients, essential oils, fresh fruit and vegetables! It might be a my sensitive nose, but I love what how it works on my skin. Even without lotion at night… still it makes my skin smooth early in the morning. Will surely buy this soap!
The first foaming hand sanitizer in our country 🙂
I am the kind who loves being so mabango all the time. I want to leave traces of my scent to people I meet everyday as much as possible 🙂 From my hands to hair strands haha!!! yes, a lady should smell nice.
SNOE hair heroes will definitely save you from a bad hair day!!! it helps to save you it from hair abuse such as hair blower, iron and styling products. It has rich formulas that contain powerful healing powers from oils, fruits and vegetables to create awesome hair days, everyday. Not only that, this intense Argan oil is also good as a leave-on hair conditioner!!!
I have only tried the conditioner and I am so in love with it already! The SNOE product I highly recommend (wait for EMU,I want to try that one so badly)
There are 3 products under hair heroes.
I tried the glam jam goddess (smells chocolate!) and glam jam blush (fruity gum!) and it is good for dry skin 🙂 All cosmetics has infused with skincare.
