Origins | The Beauty of Science and Nature



Did you know that the Virgin Coconut Oil that are found in some of Origins' products are sourced here in the Philippines? 

That's just one of the many things I learned when I went to the exclusive press launch of Origins Philippines. I must have been living under a rock or that my surgeries and exposure to epidural that I couldn't remember that Origins were once sold here in our country. Compared to many skin care brands, Origins is relatively young. It's even younger than I am! It just recently celebrated its 25th year this 2015. Founded by William Lauder, who came from a long line of beauty innovators, he was inspired to create a brand that would marry nature and science. "Powered by Nature. Proven by Science."is the brands major philosophy. And since its inception, Origins has played a big part in introducing groundbreaking discoveries in nature by some of the world's renowned scientists.


Origins Philippines transformed Le Jardin into a cozy ambiance that are field with different kinds of plants, fresh hors d'oeuvres, test tubes and beakers. I felt as if we were inside a green house! A pretty one at that. It definitely stated the brand's identity that their products are deeply rooted in Mother Nature but with the masterful use of science.

Salon Experience: Keratin Complex at Vivere Salon Trinoma





I've been holding off getting any kind of treatment since I gave birth. With the heat and how difficult it would be to care for a new do, I thought that I'd be better off with just my ho-hum hair style and it being in a ponytail. I wanted less fuss. I have too much on hands already and I really couldn't be bothered. Just thinking of the hair-maintenance of rebonded or permed hair already makes me feel so tired.

Yet I could already feel the lure of a much-needed time at the salon. My hair is frizzy to no end, unimaginably unmanageable and it's drier than ever. Suffice to say my hair needs a major makeover and what Vivere Salon is exactly the answer I've been looking for. They currently have on 30% off promo their Keratin Complex treatment. 

It's the kind of treatment I've been looking for because no chemicals are used in this process and it doesn't need a lot of maintenance from my end. What it does is revive the hair using natural Green Kerating from from soy beans, corn and wheat, it combines nutrients such as protein, calcium, fiber, potassium and iron to hydrate and boost the hair and scalp’s health and in turn. And it didn't take a long time, too, so easier for me to make more plans for the rest of the day. 

The process of the Keratin Complex Treatment is very simple. A gently shampooing using a Keratin shampoo is used to cleanse the hair of any product. After which the hair is blown dry and stylist detangles the hair in preparation of the application of the Keratin treatment (which is exlusively amde n Brazil!). Application of the treatment is per section from roots to tip.  The hair is then cellophaned to seal the treatment and the stylist will leave it on for a good 20 to 30 minutes and it will be rinsed off. Stylist will then blow dry again the hair and to seal in and infuse the treatment, heat is applied using a flat iron. And that's it!

After around an hour and half, I was done!


Keratin Complex relaxes the strands of the hair without use of any chemical straightening than can further damage the hair. It provides a silkier, smoother finish and the hair is definitely more manageable! I have achieved exatly what I want for my hair, the volume and the softness that rebond or permed can't give. It's really is a miracle as dubbed by many who have tried this treatment before me.

I used to get rebond every year and then got my hair digipermed and hair coloring in between. My hair had its fair share of being abused for sure. It was only when I got pregnant and then gave birth that I appreciated a hair that is not a slave to these chemical treatments. I saw and loved my hair's natural volume and how having thickness isn't so bad. I decided then to avoid harsh chemical treatments to tame my hair. I'm quite happy that there's a Keratin Complex treatment that addresses my concerns and still give me fanstastic natural-looking results.If that's not worth paying for, I don't know know what is!



What I love about Keratin Complex?

1, No chemicals and hair damaging involved
2. Pure natural ingredients.
3. Gets rid of frizziness and tames the over-volume of my hair
3. Cut blow-dry in behalf
4. I barely need to blow dry my hair

Join Me at Pampers First Portrait Activity at Rockwell



The rainy season is here and I can't help but feel worried. Growing up, I have always hated the rain. I lived in Marikina then and our place was prone to flooding. During Typhoon Rosing and Ondoy, we lost so much things from it and along with it many of our family albums. All my baby pictures were either damaged beyond repair or washed away by the flood. So sad that I can't show Claud how alike we were as babies.


That's why I vowed to keep important memories, especially photos, from the rain or whatever kind of damage to avoid losing them. I can't imagine losing the Camilla Claudette's First Birthday photos to some typhoon! Que horror! Thank God for technology that we get to create memories and keep them with us in tiny gadgets and store them in clouds. But many of us want to preserve keepsakes before the dawn of facebook, iPhones and internet. We want actual photos we can hng on the wall and not worry if it will deteriorate in the long run.

All is not lost, mommies! Your old and damaged photos have hope! Pampers Philippines asked me invite you to their Pampers Activity called, Pampers First Portrait! You can either bring your old photos for restoration or have a family photo shoot with your family at select participating supermarkets and when you purchase Jumbo or Super Jumbo Pack of either Pampers Premium Care or Pampers Baby Dry. It's that easy!

I can't wait to spend time with you there and check out this activity with family!

For further mechanics and complete details along with the participating stores and schedules, please check out the rest of these post. :)

Father's Day Delight at Toccare Spa

One of the things I didn't expect at all when R and I had a child was how hands-on he was. He wanted to be involved in every aspect of caring for Claud. I truly felt blessed having him for a husband and a father to my child. That is why Father's Day became an important event in our family.  Even if Father's day is still week away, I already wanted to celebrate it and give daddy R the best Fathers Day treat this year.

What better way than to plan a relaxing day at the spa, his most favorite place! Ever since I've known him, daddy R is never a the type to indulge himself. But he would never ever say no to getting a massage. He would never plan it and always wait for me to ask him to go get one so knew this is exactly what would make him happy!

Toccare Spa has a special Father's Day Package aptly named Father's Day Delight. This package includes their famous Hilot Massage and Express Gentleman's Facial using Pevonia products that lasts 90 minutes and cost only Php1900! Naturally, I booked this for R and I and a day of movie and dinner afterwards.

Toccare Spa was nice enough to give us a tour of the place when we got there. The ambiance definitely felt calming and tranquil. Their rooms are named with gem stones and their rooms are designed to meet every kind of spa demands. There's a room for barkadas, for couples and even an adjoining rooms. Their facilities are also well kept, clean and complete. There's a dry and wet sauna, a jacuzzi, shower rooms and toilets.


It's his day so he should have a mandatory photo with the spa signage. Hehehe!
