Supergirl Season 2 on HOOQ


Have you tried downloading the HOOQ app? You better be because  HOOQ always got a deep selection of movies and this month of October, HOOQ will premiere Supergirl’s Season 2 on the same day as the US telecast, giving its fans immediate access to one of Hollywood TV’s hottest shows on the device of their choice. This is a follow up to Supergirl Season 1 which also debuted last year on HOOQ as an SVOD Exclusive. This must be really a good new to superhero fanatics, right?


Supergirl is an American superhero action-adventure drama television series developed byAli AdlerGreg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg  which premiered on October 26, 2015. Based on the DC character, Supergirlaka Kara Zor-El (series star MELISSA BENOIST) decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and become the hero she was always meant to be on Warner Bros. Television series, SUPERGIRL.

Supergirl 2

When she was 12 years old, Kara Zor-El escaped the doomed planet Krypton and was sent to earth where she was protected and raised by her foster parents, Jeremiah and Eliza Danvers (guest stars DEAN CAIN and HELEN SLATER) and her foster sister, Alex (series star CHYLER LEIGH). Under their supervision, Kara learned to conceal the phenomenal powers she shares with her famous cousin, Superman, in order to keep her identity a secret.

Supergirl 3

Years later, Kara was living a “normal” life in National City, assisting media mogul and fierce taskmaster Cat Grant (recurring guest star CALISTA FLOCKHART) and working beside her friend and IT technician Winn Schott (series star JEREMY JORDAN) and famous Daily Planet photographer James Olsen (series star MEHCAD BROOKS), who Grant hired away from Metropolis. When Alex’s life was threatened in a plane crash, Kara took to the sky to rescue her. In the aftermath, Kara decided she could no longer sit on the sidelines and revealed herself as Supergirl.

Supergirl 4

In Season One, Supergirl soared fighting crime and battling various villains, chief among them two Kryptonians who were intent on destroying earth, but she has yet to find that same purpose as Kara Danvers.

Supergirl 1

In the upcoming Season Two, Kara leaves  the safety of being Cat Grant’s assistant in order to figure out what she really wants to do, while as Supergirl she continues to work at the DEO, protecting the citizens of National City and searching for Jeremiah and Cadmus. Along the way, she will team up with Superman (guest star TYLER HOECHLIN) to battle new villains, as she strives to balance her personal life with her life as a superhero.



Of course, popcorn won’t be missing!

Sneaker Box Manila


A good pair of sneakers are a great investment nowadays since sneaker market is booming as you noticed. Before, It never came to a point of appreciation to sneakers because my eyes are only stick to heels but because of days that we feel quite lazy to dress up, sneakers were added on my go-to essentials and fashion rack. With just a basic clothing, you can now turn it into something satisfying. Talking about sneakers, just last week Sneaker Box Manila opens to the public at their first branch here in the country located at The Promenade Mall, Greenhills, San Juan City. Naming the brands they offer are Adidas, Nike, New Balance and Puma. Well all about the price range? Price ranges from 4k and above. Quite expensive but  it’s worth the investment and I think it is reasonable because  all their items are legit and imported.


What’s good thing with Sneaker Box Manila is you can actually have your desired shoes for pre-order and caters sizes up to 15. That’s a good news to those who have giant feet!

Make Acne a Thing of the Past with the New Pond’s Acne Clear


As modern life continues to evolve, the factors attributed to common skin conditions like acne are also becoming more complex and multifaceted. In a study conducted by the Pond’s Institute, increasing urbanization and pollution in the environment have led to the formation of dangerous nano particles in the air that are 20 times smaller than our pores. Coupled with changing diets and daily stresses of work, these changes in our surroundings wreak havoc on the skin, causing bacteria, pore clogging, and acne more than ever.


The study also revealed that as acne afflicts more Filipinas, more are also turning to unqualified sources for treatment advice, ushering in the need for effective over-the-counter dermocosmetic products that are accessible and easily understandable by consumers. “More often than not, women turn to home remedies and regular soap to cleanse their skin and to try to cure acne,” said Dr. Peachy Paz Lao, Fellow of the Philippine Dermatological Society and Chair of the Dept of Dermatology of Makati Medical Center. “However, what they don’t know is  using a facial cleanser or facial wash instead in their first step of acne treatment is more advantageous. Soaps are alkaline while our skin is naturally acidic and disturbing this acidic milieu in the skin alters the skin’s normal protection against bacteria and environmental stress. Erosion of this acidic mantle also leads to dehydration of the skin leading to scaling and dryness.”


Pond’s, the number 1 face care brand in the Philippines, formulated an innovative combination of Thymol and Terpineol (TT), for the New Pond’s Acne Clear product range which was officially launched last week, August 2, 2016 at the Mega Fashion Hall, Megamall with Pond’s Beauty Council member Julia Barretto and her fellow ambassadors, Pond’s Beauty Bloggers Nicole Andersson, Kryz Uy, Patricia Prieto and Tricia Gosingtian, along with Alexa Ilacad and Claudia Barretto. The bevy of beautiful Pond’s girls demonstrated the simple two-step regimen to get clear, smooth and acne-clear skin. They also shared their own testimonials on the positive effects of this latest range from Pond’s by doing the 3-day #PondsAcneClear Challenge.

The new Pond’s Acne Clear which was imbued with revolutionary lock plus clear technology is the first in the world to lock powerful acne-fighting Active Thymo-T Essence, which helps penetrate deep inside bacteria cells to clear acne from the root. This breakthrough helps acne-prone women have clearer, smoother skin in as fast as three days. “At Pond’s, we aim to develop products so we can equip Filipinas with credible, clinically-proven solutions and information that combat the changing environment,” shared Mian Datu-David, Unilever Philippines’ Marketing Director for Skin. “With the new Pond’s Acne Clear Facial Foam and Leave-On Expert Clearing Gel, Filipinas can now get acne-clear skin in just two steps, and in as fast as three days.”


The new #PondsAcneClear Facial Foam and Leave-On Expert Clearing Gel are now available at all leading drugstores, supermarkets and department stores in the Philippines. Pond’s Acne Clear Facial Foam is available in 2 tube sizes: 50g – P 85; 100g – P155, as well as 2 sachet sizes: 10g – P 15; 4g –P 6, while Pond’s Acne Clear Leave-On Expert Clearing Gel is available in 20g– P 180.

The two meet by accident on a Valentine’s Day, after Majoy’s failed date. She deems Leo as her destiny, she has never been surer that Leo is the one for her. Leo thinks otherwise. But as they find themselves growing closer to each other, the crazy and seemingly accidental events surrounding them seem to put their lives in danger! Unbeknownst to them, people are after them, determined to ruin their budding relationship, and will stop at nothing to get what they want!
