Becoming Fun, Fearless and Fair | Another Milestone

It's finally out! I'm one of the Fun, Fearless and Fair Females of Nivea Extra Whitening line!

I've always wanted to be called a fun, fearless female the moment I first laid eyes and read a Cosmopolitan magazine. And now, I am!! But add Fair to the equation made me feel as if all the challenges and surviving those years of judgement and self-doubt finally paid off!

My mom can attest to the fact that I've been a Nivea Whitening lotion fan for the longest time. I started using it at my fourth year in high school and it continued til I was in college and law school. I saw it change in appearance and formula.... same as I did. Like Nivea that has undergone changes in itself, I, too, change as the years went by...

I use to be very self-conscious, worried about judging eyes and those who continuously see me in the baddest of lights. I thought that this "addiction" for beauty skincare and makeup made me materialistic, vain and worry only about outside appearances as I've been told by others. I was judged "maarte" and "kikay". 

From what just become a stress-reliever, this blog paved the road to understanding who I am... voicing out things that used to attract negativity from others. Now, pursuing what I love, what I'm passionate about made me appear in magazines, newspaper, TV and now this...

I still get conscious, I still go under self-pity mode and dissect my every little insecurities... But knowing what I can have every time I conquer them, made overcoming them something that I need to take seriously.

Looking at this, I know I did good.. And if only my mom can see me now. I'd tell her that every bottle of Nivea lotion she bought was worth it!

Another great thing about being Fun, Fearless and Fair is that you attract positive vibes and you get to meet cool new people. I can't believe I'd be among the loveliest and sexiest of beauty and fashion blogging. There's Martha of TheBeautyJunkee, Lissa of SceneStealer, Jackie of, Alyssa of and Vern of AShoeTale. These girls embody what every girl should strive for... confident, educated, mature, beautiful and a great style to boot.

Being a part of this campaign shows that an ordinary girl like me can truly be Fun, Fearless and Fair if only we see ourselves in better light. We only live once... why not take more chances, right?

Thanks, Nivea, for this opportunity.

Special thanks to Yehey Philippines, RJ, Mikki, MNG, and the team who worked on this shoot....
