Kiehl's Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Aqua Gel | Sunscreen for Oily Skin


We should have known by now that Sunscreen and Sunblock are skin care essentials - most especially during summer days. 

Finding the perfect sunblock and sunscreens may be a little tricky as we all want a product that not just protects us from harmful rays, but also good for our skin. 

Kiehl's recently launched its latest product, the Ultra Light Daily UV Defense Aqua Gel SPF 50 PA ++++ with a poolside party at the Ascott Hotel in Makati City.

The New Remington Air 3D Hair Dryer in Rose Gold

The New Remington Air 3D Hair Dryer in Rose Gold 

I recently made a commitment with myself that I would start styling my hair more. I am inspired by the timely come-back of hair clips, scrunchies and headbands.

I always wear my hair down or just tie it up because I want to stay classic and neutral when I look back at my old photos. 

It is as if the universe is listening when I got invited to the launch of Remington 's newest hair dyer in the Philippines - the #RemingtonAir3D. The intimate event was held in Dean & Deluca and was attended by executives of the brand. It was amazing to know the history and people behind the 80 year old brand.

What to Order at Botejyu Japanese Restaurant?

One of the reasons why I love Japan is the good food. 

There are only a few good Japanese Restaurants in Manila that offers the best okonomiyaki, ramen, katsu and all other authentic Japanese dishes. 

Now, here's a new favorite dining destination: Botejyu which just recently opened its flagship store in One Bonifacio High Street in BGC.

I am not kidding when I say doing the laundry is one of my favorite exercises. I still do hand-wash especially for delicate clothes. Every weekend (or whenever I have free day), I dedicate it as laundry day. 

When I get busier though, my mom would offer to wash my clothes. I knew that I am extremely busy when I no longer have time to do the laundry and my dirty clothes have piled up. My normal laundry time usually takes 1 to 2 hours - no joke. So I really allot time for my laundry.
