When you hear the word 'KIMONO',
What's the first thing that pops up in your head?
I bet you're envisioning the traditional Japanese Garment,
Full length robes with wide sleeves, tied with a sash!

Nope! This ain't the type of KIMONO I'm sporting right now.
I must admit that I'm not even sure how cardigan-like outfits are termed Kimonos.
But truth is, I just love how trendy they are.
It instantly turns any Plain Jane outfit into something eye-catching.

I specifically love my H&M button-down kimono 'cause I can wear it in two ways:
Either as a cardigan cover-up or a loose care-free buttoned top!
And it is indeed the tassel hem that gives my animal print kimono its oomph factor!
I just love how versatile & stylish Kimonos are.

Button-Style Kimono | H&M Japan
Kimonos are very versatile!
They make you feel chic without trying too hard.
It's effortless styling with maximum comfort.
Indeed the perfect cover-up for hot and cold days alike!
Kimonos come in various patterns, lengths & styles.
So it's definitely the easiest way to update any kind of wardrobe!

Don't worry if you're sporting a monochromatic look.
No need to buy piles of accessories,
Just have a printed kimono handy and I assure you it'll do the trick!
It's the kind of cover-up that never makes you look dull & sick.
At the end of the day, no matter how you want to wear your Kimono,
Just remember that you'll never go out of style,
When you wear your look with a smile that spells CONFIDENCE all over! :)

Thanks for your support my dearest readers!

Dear Diary,

I admit that at one point in our lives, we've dreamed of becoming Princesses! Who wouldn't want a Prince Charming to sweep us off our feet right?! Who wouldn't want to have a castle, rule a kingdom and live a happy ever after?! Oh, there's really no harm in dreaming as long as we keep on believing so...

“ Mirror, mirror on the wall / Who is fairest of them all?”

Skin white as snow, lips red as blood, and hair black as night.
Cloaked in pink, this girl’s young, fresh and divine!

"You are not the fairest of them all, my queen."

Dear Diary,

O-M-G! I can't believe Mundi Pharma Films contacted me today to star for Betadine's "The Princess Diaries"!!! It's a dream come true for me. Now, I'd have to familiarize myself with the Royal Ways, the etiquette of a Princess. Exciting!

August 26, 2015

Dear Diary,

It's so hot & humid right now. Irritating! I can't even walk properly 'cause it's itching again down there. Oh, I just hate red days. Argh. Why does being a girl have to be so difficult? Spare me from all this embarrassment please! I can't blow up this chance...just this once, let me be Cinderella...

August 27, 2015

Dear Diary,

I had to call my mom today! I just had it with my vaginal infection. And you what she recommended to me??? Betadine® Feminine Wash! Mom really swears by it. What's funny is I've always seen this in the supermarket, but it's only now that I decided to give it a try. If I knew it was this effective then I'd have switched long time ago. I can't believe I had to tolerate all those years of agony. Mom really knows best!

Dear Diary,

My twin sister & I were planning this staycation since last month! She called up to cancel just this morning due to the discomfort she was experiencing down there. Oh you know, I definitely understand her situation. I've just been there...the same exact dilemma. But I told her she can't let her period get in the way.

Since my twin & I usually have the same likes & dislikes, I just knew this will work for her too! I told her:  "Sis, use this  Betadine® Feminine Wash ! Believe me, it works 100%. #IDoItTwiceAWeek already. And I just love the fresh & clean feeling it gives me. No more foul odor, no more itch, no more discomfort. This product seriously works, big time!"
Thank God she decided to push through even if she had her period!!!
And she seems happy now 'cause I made sure I brought one bottle for her too. Sometimes, it's just really hard to share something that you can't live without anymore, right?
Now, both of us can chill this period away because you bet we can't let any red tide ruin our vacation!

September 1, 2015

Oh, I love treats!!! My twin just paid for all our golf sessions today. She was so thankful for my Betadine® Feminine Wash  advice that she just insisted to pay for the games. But I told her, "It's really mom who we should thank!" 
Because we loved how fresh, clean & confident we feel, we just had to share this experience with our girl friends over our golf tournaments. 
Off to practice my swings, archery & balance lessons already. Time to shoot some holes baby! Oh, this would really be helpful with my movie taping in a few weeks.

Dear Diary,

"Yay!" for swimming day! I'm kind of sensitive with the pools I swim in so it's really a good thing that my new found best friend Betadine® Feminine Wash came in handy. It's always better safe than sorry, right?! 
People have asked me:
"What do I do twice a week to keep feeling clean & sexy?"
No, it's not hitting the gym.
No, it's not skipping the carbs.
It's really simply silly!
It's all in the feminine wash baby.
Betadine® Feminine Wash this should be every girl's secret weapon.
What's amazing is this solution ain't even expensive!
Oh, I never thought feeling clean & sexy would be this effortless.
Yes, Dear Diary, I know you know how much my twin sister and I argue with all the rants I've been writing lately. But with Betadine® Feminine Wash , we don't argue about how effective it is, we argue as to who will be using the last drop of goodness! Hahaha! All it took was the 1st try and it literally changed our lives forever! Proud sister here :)
Who would have thought that the secret to feeling confident really lies in the wash? Yes, with Betadine® Feminine Wash Clean is the New SexyJust do it at least twice a week (or everyday during red days), and you'll say, "Goodbye itchiness!" down there. 
I'm really proud to be part of this Sexy Clean Revolution! No itch. No odor. No discomfort. Now, I no longer have reasons to skip events because I've realized that conquering the Red Tide is possible. It just takes the right wash to combat every rash.

September 3, 2015

Dear Diary,

Seriously, I've never felt this sexy! Now, swiping that red lipstick ain't ever enough. Having that barbie-size figure won't do the trick. And wearing cleavage-bearing & sexy backs ain't even sexy for me anymore. Now, I only feel clean, sexy & confident with the right feminine wash!
Believe it or not, I no longer dread my red days. I just seriously laugh about it...'cause whenever I remember those days when I couldn't walk straight, I know I've either cancelled a date or called in sick. Oh, silly me! Now I know, I need not make excuses because I've finally solved these ridiculous feminine issues of mine!
Now that I have Betadine® Feminine Wash in my life, I'm 100% sure that I'm odor-free, itch-free & stress-free! Yes, with Betadine® 's Povidone Iodine 7.5%, no one can stop me from feeling sexy inside out! Oh, who cares about the figure I have when I stink? Who cares about my gorgeous OOTD when I can't walk properly? Now that I've finally found what I've been looking for all these years, no one can stop me from conquering the world one step at a time! I'm just a confident girl and there's nothing you can do about it. 
Fresh, clean & sexy---yes, that's me!!! <3

September 10, 2015

Dear Diary,
So, are you already whitewashed?
Yes, I know...we'd have to be careful with the Huntsman! Oh, what can I do now when we've found the secret to this fresh, sexy and confident look?! I just can't go back to my dull self. We just do it twice a week and this happened! One of the best decisions ever.

I'm just really happy right now because I know I'm ready for my Princess Diaries taping tomorrow!!! I'm definitely in my best shape ever. I love this stage of my life. <3

So again, I'd have to ask this question:
"Mirror Mirror on the Wall, who is the fairest of them all?"
"You are!," my queen.
You & Your twin sister are fairest of them all now.

The Dove Girl Effect

"When it comes to #RealCare, Dove is as real as it gets."
And to this tagline, I am a living testament.
Jumpsuit | Apartment8 Clothing 
Being a Dove Girl is easy. 
Once you've tried it, you'll see the difference instantly.
Yes, like you, I've had bad hair days & flat hair problems!
But when I discovered the ‪#‎DoveOxygenNourishment‬ hair effect,
I just knew from there and then that I'd finally get to say goodbye to hairs in braids & buns!

Thanks to my twin who won the  ‪#‎DoveOxygenNourishment‬ contest,
Us Tres Mujeres were able to have an awesome staycation at Aruga by Rockwell.
My Twin Sister & I
My Auntie & I
Upon entering our suite at Aruga,
Us Dove Girls were pampered with lovely surprises:

The rooms were just so spacious & comfortable!
We were tempted to do pillow fights, but we refrained ourselves...
'Cause of Maturity. (haha!)

UCC Coffee was complimentary.
What better way to relax than with an aromatic cup of Joe, right?!

If you're craving for food,
And Aruga's lobby restaurant can't seem to satisfy you,
Don't worry, you can simply cook up, heat up something your tummy desires!
The suite is even equipped with washing machines and dryers too. (Cool!)
And of course, no staycation would ever be complete without selfies!
And you bet, I just love big ass mirrors.
Yes, I  admit I'm vain at times! (Haha!)
I'm just really picky when it comes to my hair & outfit.
Who doesn't wanna look good, right?!
Shades | Sunnies Studios

I just love how modern the shower room looked!
I'm definitely gonna have a long bath, that's for sure.
And guess who's just been named the Best Shampoo of 2015?
Yes, it's none other than the shampoo I use, ‪#‎DoveOxygenNourishment‬ ! (Yay!)
I just took home these Aruga toiletries as I'm very choosy with my Shampoo & Conditioner.
Yes, I'm a self-confessed Dove Girl alright.
Dove works wonders for my hair & skin and that's all that matters!
Okay enough of my suite snapshots!
I just want to seriously thank Dove for this staycation and years of #RealCare.
I've never felt so cared for---
It's as if Dove completely understands every Filipina's problems.

What better way to highlight my staycation than to bond with fellow Dove Girls.
It's just inspiring to hear how Dove changed their lives too as it did to mine.
The experiences were very personal & real and that's how it should always be.
Special thanks to Ms. Julia Ng, the brand manager, for making all these possible!

After the getting to know & sharing your experience session,
We parted ways to explore Aruga by Rockwell more.
Below are snapshots as I head towards the pool area:

Dove is definitely trusted by generations.
And my 50-year old Auntie can effortlessly attest to that.
Isn't she just blooming?!
That's 'cause she uses Dove Bar from head to toe!
Yes, Dove Bar even to shampoo her hair.
You heard that right.
       50 years old             |               26 years old              |                26 years old

Oh, I will seriously miss this place!
Aruga even has a private underground passage directly connected to Rockwell.
No need to cross the streets at night,
'Cause when it comes to Aruga, it's always safety first!

Lobby Entrance
Aruga Reception

Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner Area at Aruga's Lobby Restaurant
Yes, a sumo meal to end my staycation with a bang!
Indeed, it is with heavy heart that I have to pack my bags to leave.
Oh, thank you Dove for a short and sweet vacation,
Just the perfect escape from my oh-so-busy life!

Try this place out and you'll thank me for this later.

Back to reality,
