Hot Summer Looks for Women from Tip to Toe 2014

We can’t just focus on the clothes girls as the hair maketh the look! Below are selections of prized styles that flatter every outfit and can be tweaked, adjusted with small additions or accessories in your own collection.

Hair and what’s hip on the runway

This summer we are catapulting into the creative hairstyles with feathered headdresses, ponytails with a dash of spray paint and a range of gold-flecked updos. Back on the runway for something more everyday, we can pick out the fairy-tale-like disordered locks and plaits, ending with some charming ruffled chignons.

Exciting Surprise for WeChat Users: Get An Exclusive Offer from Lazada PH

WeChat is happy to announce its exclusive surprise for all its valued users. This surprise has something to do with the celebration of Lazada's 2nd Anniversary today, March 26, 2014. Upon learning of this great offer, I felt excited because two of my favorite brands are partnering to bring something grand to everyone. For the longest time already, WeChat has kept me connected with my friends, families and loved ones all over the world. Communication with the special persons in my life was made easy with the WeChat app in my smartphone. At the same time, Lazada has always been my favorite online store in the Philippines. I have made many transactions with them and so far, I never encountered any problem with the said online shop. I was also happy when Lazada introduced its smartphone app two months ago.

What is this exclusive surprise?

Lazada Philippines wishes to thank its customers for supporting their platform offering a wide array of products—from consumer electronics and fashion pieces to home and living must-owns. Straight from their Mobiles & Tablets category, Lazada Philippines is set to roll out discounted Android tablets for 1,000 users who are following their Official Account on WeChat.

Be Fit and Feel Great with The Greene Dare

The best reward any person could give her body is a healthy lifestyle. Everyone deserves to get enough sleep, nutrients and vitamins. However, the hectic schedules and busy days prevent us from achieving a balanced and healthy lifestyle. It's a good thing that there are many alternatives and ways which can help us get the body and life we want. One of these is drinking pure and organic juices made from raw vegetables and fruits. It has been proven that juicing enables people to stay fit and feel great.

For a busy person like me, I have no time to make my own juice. To be honest, I barely have enough time to go to the grocery store or to the local market. This means that I could not prepare my own cold-pressed juice so I prefer ordering some from trusted distributors. In Davao city, one of the well-known juice seller is The Green Dare. I tried their Reboot Up Plan for my Wednesday and I must say, it made me feel better!

How to Be Healthy with Your Smartphone Apps

An article from Women's Health magazine (January issue) mentioned that getting fit or achieving a healthy body is one of the top resolutions that most people want to achieve for the new year. The same article also provided that 1/3 of those who promised to start a healthier lifestyle lose their interest or motivation after the first month of the year. This only shows that people need to be reminded of their resolutions to keep them on track.

“Health isn’t about being “perfect” with food or exercise or herbs. 
Health is about balancing those things with your desires. 
It’s about nourishing your spirit as well as your body.”
― Golda Poretsky

If you are one of those people who wanted a "healthy you" for 2014, I highly recommend that you download apps in your smartphone that will help you achieve your goal. These apps will enable you to live a healthier and happier life. Check the list below:

Falling In Love Over and Over Again with NESCAFE Cappuccino

The best news I received this week is the coming back of NESCAFÉ Cappuccino in the market. As the name of my blog suggests, I love drinking coffee and one of my favorite drinks is cappuccino. I love this Italian specialty coffee beverage which has a hint of sweetness to go with a strong espresso taste because it has coffee foam similar to café style coffees. This means that with my NESCAFÉ Cappuccino, I can enjoy my favorite drink at a completely affordable price and prepare it at the convenience of my own home. I do not need to drive all the way to a coffee shop before I can let myself enjoy the inviting aroma and mouth-coating coffee goodness a cup of cappuccino offers. At the same time, I can easily enhance the flavor of my easy-to-prepare coffee by adding chocolate sprinkles on top.

Glowing Happily at Liberalia 2014

I know I should be studying on Araw ng Davao Saturday night but... I can't afford to miss Liberalia 2014: The Neon Glow Party. My blogger friends convinced me to ditch my books for one night and treat myself to a party I truly deserve. And yes, I made a good decision by partying wet and wild at Liberalia with the best crowd, beautiful neon colors and great electronic music. Liberalia 2014 was organized by Manic Nightnings Production, the same team behind the successful party of 2013 - the Carte Blanche: Electric Music Festival.


Thanks to WeChat Cloud Storage: Say Bye to Losing Important Data

There were many instances in the past when I experienced losing important data and information saved from my smartphone. During those times, I became more frustrated because I could no longer access the lost data no matter what I do. This is the reason why I always make sure that I have a back up for all the files I don't want to lose. I am also impressed with applications and programs that offer instant back up for users like me.

When I learned about WeChat's Cloud Storage, I felt happy because this means I will never lose any important data again especially with my favorite WeChat app. This new feature of WeChat works like a digital notepad for very user. The reliable Chat History Backup feature saves conversation histories and restores them to any device for up to seven (7) days.

Let me start by asking how far have you gotten in accomplishing the resolutions you made for the New Year 2014? At what stage are you in completing the promises you made to yourself last January 1st?
