Happy Skin Turn Up the Heat Summer Collection 2014 Launch...

When Happy Skin launched in the Philippines last October, I was already in the UAE that I had no choice but to just drool over the photos of my friends getting their hands on the Happy Skin products.  I went green with envy seeing my fellow bloggers getting first dibs on one of the most talked about brands to date.  And so, when I learned that Happy Skin is launching their Summer Collection while I'll be having my vacation in PH, I really got so excited.  And I even got more excited when I finally got the invite!  Of course, what made me look forward to the event more was that I'd be able to see some of my good friends after a long time.  

The event was held a day after we arrived from Palawan, and though I was all tired (and burnt), I told myself this is one event I wouldn't dare miss.  It was held at 71 Gramercy in Makati, and I was told it was one of the newest "IN" place nowadays.

Just seeing this cute registration counter makes me want to go back to the beach and get a tan all day!

Unboxing my March Glambox….

My 3-month Glambox subscription ended last January and with their Bliss-exclusive box last month, I wanted to kick myself for not continuing with my subscription!  I love receiving beauty boxes, it's like Christmas morning when you get this lovely pink box with a little, or no clue at all as to what's waiting for you inside.  

For this March, I got a complimentary box from Glambox (thanks, Glambox Middle East!) and it was like Chrismas morning once again.  For this month, their box is yet another exclusive box and this time, it's from a brand that has been a household name for many years…NIVEA.

For this exclusive Nivea box, they are featuring 4-full sized products that are essentials, most especially if you are a skincare-junkie like me:

You are invited: Shiseido International Beauty Fair at SM Megamall Atrium...

Have you ever wondered how Japanese women take care of their skin and put on their makeup?  They have amazing skin and their makeup is always flawless.  

Now, wonder no more.  To welcome the Sakura season, Shiseido Philippines will be showcasing an International Beauty Fair on March 21-23, 2014 at the SM Megamall Atrium.  There will be a three-day beauty workshop that will be conducted by Momoko Ishibashi of Shiseido Japan, along with Shiseido Philippines Chief Makeup Artist, Carmel Villongco.

The coveted Shiseido Certificate will be awarded to the attendees upon completion of the 3-day workshop.  If interested, RSVP via the Shiseido Philippines Facebook page and get a special loot bag at the end of the workshop.

During the 3-day beauty fair, there will also be free skincare consultations, makeover counters, makeup demos, photo booths, Shiseido Cafe, nail art services and a glitter tattoo station.  You can also get exclusive gifts and treats with your purchases during the weekend fair.

OMG, I wish I've booked my flight going home a lot earlier so I'd be able to attend this.  
Sniff. Sniff.

But I am keeping my fingers crossed that I'd be able to witness the opening of Shiseido Philippines' flagship store this April at the Mega Fashion Hall! Geesh, the Megamall is one place I won't dare miss to visit in my upcoming vacation.  A lot have definitely changed since the last time I was there.

Cooking with Brigitte: Ginisang Ampalaya (Sauteed Bitter Gourd)...

When I was a kid, I was taught not to be picky when it comes to food.  While most kids would hate eating vegetables, I on the other hand, would always want to have them for ulam (viand). I love mashing the potatoes from the Nilagang Baboy and mix it with my rice.  I particularly love pechay, talbos ng kamote and cabbage.  I think, I can eat all vegetables... yes, including the dreaded ampalaya (bitter gourd)!

I know most kids even some adults don't like eating ampalaya.  Well, I used to not like it too but thanks to the awesome cooking of my Lolo, I learned to like it.  Actually, it's one of my favourite vegetable.  So for today, I want to share with you how I cook this simple dish called Ginisang Ampalaya. And give you tips on how to make it less bitter, so your little ones (or maybe you as well) would like it.

The ingredients:

Garlic ( I love to cook with lots of garlic!)
Pork sliced into small cubes or strips

(seeded and cut into thin slices)

To make it less bitter,  soak the ampalaya slices in water with some salt.  I soak them for about 10 minutes.

Product Review: Pevonia Silky Skin Body Scrub...

Don't you just love body scrubs?  When I was still in PH, I try to go to a spa and get a full body scrub (and a massage) at least twice a month.  It's my sort of reward/break for myself after all the craziness at work.  Now that I've been out of the workforce for months, does this mean I have to stop giving myself some good 'ole TLC?

Of course not!

Thanks to our friends from Pevonia PH for making sure I'd still be able to enjoy luxurious scrubs here in Dubai, without having to visit a spa, by giving me this:

Pevonia Botanica Silky Skin Scrub

This delightfully creamy scrub has Jojoba Beads, Rosemary, Sage and Allantoin to gently but effectively polish away superficial impurities for a radiant, silky-soft skin.
