K-beauty is now today’s trend and have been dominating the beauty convention over the past years. I’m pretty sure that everyone of us love Korean products most especially their cosmetics and skincare essentials. Let’s start with the packaging which is totally cute and for sure you will not throw away the box. Like me, I like recycling them for flatlay purposes. When it comes to skincare, no doubt that I will choose Korean brands because my skin is sensitive. Upon comparing to other international brands, Korean brands is the perfect one for my sensitive skin because it offers a modern and mindful approach. Are you familiar with the 10 step Korean skincare routine? You have to follow these steps to achieve a flawless and healthy skin.

  1. Make-up remover and Oil cleanser
  2. Water-based cleanser
  3. Exfoliation
  4. Toner/Skin softener/Refresher
  5. Essence – a kind of toner and serum hybrid made for hydrating.
  6. Serums, Boosters and Ampoules
  7. Sheet masks
  8. Eye cream
  9. Moisturizer
  10. Sun Protection

Moving on to cosmetics, we all know that Korea offers also a wide variety of cosmetics from their famous primer, BB/CC Cream, Cushions, Highlighters, Fundation, Tint, Balm, Palette and many more. And these are the reasons I’m into Korean cosmetics – innovativeness and continuous experimentation. First on the list of my favorites is their cushion which is really fun. I love those because it makes it easier to apply.

To sum it up the above mentioned, there is this question where to buy those products then?. Yeppunonnie is the answer.

Yeppunonnie

Yeppunonnie

Yeppunonnie is an online marketplace for Korean products. It is built to cater the K-beauty needs to Filipino customers aside from the usual brands that we already have in our country but also brands that are only available in Korea such as Abbamart, Amini, IPKN, 3WC, Aery Jo and Make up Helper.

Last Tuesday, January 24 at Valkyrie, Yeppunonnie in collaboration with Ouniwang brought the K-beauty in a whole new level. It was an event filled with games, demos, giveaways and freebies of K-beauty products featured on Yeppunonnie. You heard it right! Giveaways and freebies were given away not only to b/vloggers but to everyone who’s at the event. In short, that night Korean beauty products were all over the place so my blogger bestie, Mavie and I went crazy every booth to score those beauty products we wanted to have and we didn’t fail on that. Wohoooo!!!

At midnight, we got another bonus of an all night partying with Kpop star, Jay Park and so Valkyrie went wild as soon as Jay Park started to show up on stage, perform his hits, showed up his muscles and of course his abs!!!!!! His tats were cool too

November 8, 2016 when OWNDAYS, one of the largest optical chains from Japan, launched another store at Estancia Mall. In attendance of Mr. Shuji Tanaka, the CEO of OWNDAYS, and Mr. Vohne Yao, Managing Director of Sungears Sales Inc., along with several VIP guests from the media.

Photo  (7)

During the launching event, I finally got to know more about the brand which is known for its quick “20-minute” processing time, 1,500 styles and “all-in-one” pricing system.

Starting from Php 2,900- Php 6,990 (lens included), the affordable yet high quality frames of OWNDAYS have gained huge local popularity leading to the opening of 8 locations as of the month. “We have hundreds of styles, but function is always at the heart of every pair,” shares Yao. “We have 20 brands under OWNDAYS, and each brand has its distinct characteristic.”

Photo  (11)

Reasons why OWNDAYS were game-changers in optical stores: Simple. OWNDAYS makes the price system simple and easy to understand – set prices include everything you need (frame + 1.60 to 1.67 high index aspheric/ultra thin lenses). Prices range from PHP 2,990 to PHP 6,990 and no additional fee for the aspheric/ultra thin lens regardless of the high grade.

IMG_6721

Quick. Your time is important to OWNDAYS. Their practical knowledge, reliable skills and latest technology in retail optical lens edging enable them to complete your pair in as early as 20 minutes upon payment – except for special order lenses. OWNDAYS uses Nidek’s LE-1200, top-notch equipment from Japan, which offers faster grinding capabilities and results to a shorter cycle time and a high luster finish.

Photo  (5)

Valuable. OWNDAYS carries out research for enhanced functionality and quality on a daily basis with the aim of complying with the strict Japan Industrial Standards (JIS). Quality improvements and increased production efficiencies are achieved at overseas affiliated plants under the supervision of Japanese engineers. OWNDAYS lenses are aspheric/ultra thin and multi-coated equipped with UV, anti-reflective, scratch-resistant and water repellent coating. Aspheric/ultra thin lenses achieve less distortion and a thinner edge making your eyeglasses lighter and more comfortable.

IMG_7075

Aside from offering more styles and higher quality, OWNDAYS provides in-store eye exams facilitated by their PRC Licensed Optometrists. They are also able to increase efficiency and improve patient care through their latest technology in electronic refraction.

Technology has been so wondrously connecting lives and preserving relationships. Friends are now just a chat or text away, so keeping in touch with long-distance family and friends is now more doable. Of course, nothing beats the experience of actually being face-to-face with the people we know.

What if there was an application that used the ease of technology to bring people together on a face-to-face level?

Oh wait, there is! Newly launched Findr has just made our social lives a whole lot easier.
Findr-1
By fusing some features of Google+,Facebook, and Foursquare with Findr’s platform, being on top of your social life becomes possible with just a few clicks!

Findr’s main goal is for people to interact face to face rather than just meeting online—taking people from the hyper-stimulated online world, and reconnecting them to the real world with people of the same collective interest.

IMG_9527
IMG_9521

It’s so easy to get started. By logging in through your Facebook or Google+ account, you can invite your contacts; accept group or contact invites; start creating groups; and plan activities. Done? Now you can start posting events, chatting, and interacting with the people in your network. Whether you’re planning a garage sale, a food crawl, a fashion show, or an art event, you can easily post the details and let your contacts know about it. Your contacts can then instantly let you know whether they’re going to the event, or their way, or already at the venue. You can even track where they are at the moment!

IMG_6631

For safety purposes, in order to join a group, Findr, requires you to input the group CODE.

This free application is user friendly with the platform being able to cater to all who want to socialize and know the latest events and happenings around them—and even around the world.

Findr-4

SafeSat is composed of a fleet and personnel monitoring system, an inventory and warehousing system, aPOS System, a fleet booking and dispatching system, and a parking system. Currently, they have more things being developed in the pipeline.

The company is led by Salvador Silva, Jr. III, MBA (Founder, Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer), Prof. Enrique Soriano III, MBA (Vice Chairman and Lead Strategist), Dr. Bobby Gerardo (Technical Consultant), and Prof. Alfredo Tayo III, CPA, MDM, CESE (Strategic and Financial Adviser) with a technical team, directed by Co-Founder and Technical Manager Angelo Kaufmann, focused on the overall development of Findr.

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.

IMG_5610

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!

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.

IMG_0342

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.”

IMG_0339

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.

Unbeknownst to them, people are after them, determined to ruin their budding relationship, and will stop at nothing to get what they want!
