As much as we love makeup and all those other beauty stuff, it is our reproductive system should have the same attention we give our pretty face.
Did you know that there are 12 Filipino women that dies of cervical cancer?
With our culture wherein the birds and the bees are still taboo, its no wonder that many are suffering this disease probably without them knowing.
For the past year, advocacy of widening the knowledge and the net as to which this information should be disseminated, Cervical Cancer is getting its scare from a lot of institutions. You can't fear what you know after all. And to this, I do agree that knowledge is power.
On May 26, Department of Health, along with the Philippines Obstetrical and Gynecological Society, the Society of Gynecologic Oncologists of the Philippines (SGOP), the Philippine Society for Cervical Pathology and Colposcopy, the Cancer Resource and Wellness (Carewell) Community, and Merck Sharp & Dohme, is set to undertake free nationwide cervical cancer screening for women ages 25 to 44.

During the event, we got to have a fun time with fellow bloggers that we usually see on beauty and fashion events. It was fun seeing Lace, Tere, Bambi, Earth, Lauren, Geolette and Nikki. The stylists Jo, Alex, Shanna, Arnie was also present for the event. Support from fellow bloggers like Azrael, Earth, Leira and Lauren's BF was truly appreciated. Too bad that Bianca, one of the blogger contestant wasn't there to join the festivities.
Teeyah and I already conceded to just take home the loot bags for those who joined. Win or lose, we had an experience that is unforgettable. After all, we didn't really have the proper skills and knowledge when it comes to fashion except for what we think exuded our personalities and needs the best. We were just out to have fun. (Cue Cyndi Lauper's Girls Just Wanna Have Fun song)
So, there we were like two giddy children having the time of our lives as we look at the mannequin wearing the clothes we created. My heart skipped a beat seeing my site on a 32 inch flat screen TV for everyone to see in Megamall Atrium. It was already a winning moment for me having been a contestant and my site displayed like that.
But when our names were called as one of the winners of the Promod, Style it Out For Me Je ne sais quoi Challenge made me (followed by Tara) jumped for joy. Yes, I was hopping. Gone was my poise and it felt like I was being called on stage on Wowoweee or even won the lottery. That's how surprised we were. We really didn't expect it. up to this day, we don't know what we did right for the judges to like our work.
The second floor Megamall Atrium transformed to a what seems like a Hollywood set of a French Cafe.

DKNY Candy Apples
Creating a candy apple is about pairing the sweetness of candy with a juicy, ripe apple. You bite into a delicious candy shell, only to be greeted with the fresh crunch of a sweet apple center. DKNY has perfected this pairing and made three new candy apple fragrances. Using the very best ingredients and juiciest notes – each fragrance is sure to satisfy the sweet tooth in you! The Candy Apples fragrance flavors include Sweet Caramel, Ripe Raspberry and Juicy Berry.
Ripe luscious raspberries trickle a sweet glaze over crisp crunchy apples and effervescent lime. Their yummy juices are cushioned by fluffy peonies and sweet lilies before bursting with fragrant fizziness from a delicious cola accord. Simply red, simply yummy.
A whimsical candied fusion drizzles with luscious fruits, delicious flowers and mouth watering edibles. Tantalizing candy apple & pear tease you with temptation. A soft kiss of marshmallow is pure comfort. Decadent jasmine petals flirt with delicate muguet while velvety violet leaves add sparkle with an edge of green freshness. The fluid charm of creamy caramel is addictive as it liquefies with whipped vanilla. Satiate your sweet tooth with its playful seduction.
Each Delicious Candy Apple fragrance is packaged in the iconic Be Delicious apple, colored by flavor with an old-fashioned stick emblazoned with the DKNY logo jutting out of the top. The limited edition Delicious Candy Apples Collection is the latest entry into the best-selling DKNY family of his and her fragrances.

Did you know that our skin is like a major hard drive? It keeps a record of every single sun interaction we have had in the past. And do you know when you'll see the results? When we are old and gray and when we can no longer find ways to get rid of it... yes, it will be too late.
Unless, you've got an army of skin care products that help you combat all that now.
The General of this army is a one strong sunscreen (sunblock to some) that will protect your skin from the damaging UVA and UVB. Always keep one on hand and make sure to keep sun exposure to the minimum.

I'm off to Laguna (destination: Hot Springs) to get some much needed R&R. I hope I have time to drop by Rustan's Shangri-la to get me Clinique's new SPF 50 Face Cream and Body Cream. I can't believe they are only P1,540 and P1,650. I thought they'd be pricier.
I really got to reacquaint myself with Clinique.
