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!
Aside from shoes, they also cater shirts, caps and socks from Happy Socks that you’ll definitely love.

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.

It’s August 15 again! I can’t believe I’m already 21 but first of all I really wanted to thank all my supportive readers, followers, social media friends, BFFs and my family for being the sweetest. I am so overwhelmed with all the greetings. Actually, I am on leave today at work so I could spent some time tick all what’s on my birthday bucketlist. Scroll down to see what’s on my list:
- DIY travel with family.
I was the one incharge in everything during our HongKong-Macau trip last May – itineraries, hotel accommodation and piso fare booking. It was a little bit hassle on my part since I took over all the responsibilities of this trip but it was indeed a self-fulfilling task after I saw the full smile of my family.
- Be a Clozette Ambassador.
I owe the success of my blogging career to Lystra Aranal and http://www.Clozette.co.
- Dye my hair!
I always wanted a new look/hairstyle every year on my birthday month or earlier but to undergo bleaching was never came across on my mind because my mom would probably freak out. Bleaching isn’t really good for hair because it causes dryness but I really wanted to achieve the level 2.0 look of Jamila and I have that full trust to my partnered salon, Hairshaft together with my hairstylists Fred, Miguel and Carl that they will take good care of my hair and be from free from hair damage.
- Start my own business and wear something I have made.
It’s been a dream for me to put up my own business hand in hand most especially related to fashion. Just last July when I officially announced my clothing line online and on November I’ll be having my first bazaar. For now, you can see my collections on Clothing by Jamila’s official social media sites:
- Nightlife and be able to attend a music festival.
Anything that correlates to the word nightlife isn’t a good idea to my parents so everytime I do attend gatherings which falls at night, it makes my mom freak out. I must say every hour she will make a call to check up on me.”Where are you? Whom are you with? “, these are just few from my mom’s questions over the phone but since I have a different career now and I am already getting older, limitations were reduced.
As for music festival, just last summer I just had my first ever music festival collaboration (this is the event I’ve been waiting for so long) which is the CloseUp Forever Summer held in MOA Concert Grounds.
- Ear Piercing
Happy happy birthday to me! Again, thank you to everyone who remembered my special day.
