with Real Friends

Another funny and memorable day with my friends. We went to Tagaytay's Palace in the Sky to feel the cool breeze, ate Bulalo at Bulalo Point Restaurant and spent the night in Nuvali. 

What is a real friend? This is it:

In good times, or bad times - always on your side forevermore - that's what friends are for! Won't leave you, won't judge you, have the same faith and always there for you through thick and thin.

Mystery Customer

To reveal or not to reveal?

I cut my teeth on what I would call the regular mystery shops. I have chosen to become a mystery customer to one of the biggest Coffee Company, evaluated their products, services, employees anonymously, and then went home to fill out a report online.

But don't worry, I gave them a passing grades. ;) I am an Entrepreneurial Management graduate and I know how to evaluate the quality of products and services of a business. Working in a fast food chain when I was in college is also an advantage for being a mystery customer as I am quite familiar with all the services that a restaurant could offer. 

Being a mystery customer is hard because I have to pretend that I am just an ordinary customer. Changing my name when evaluating store, ordering given food and beverages, answering given questions and sending the results to the Company's Marketing Department are part of my tasks. Each store should get my satisfaction. Customer satisfaction reflects the expectations and experiences that the customer has with a product or service. Expectations reflect both past and current product evaluation and use experiences. 

Others consider it as part time job but for me it's a good and unique experience.

Pretty Simple Waving Hair Tutorial

Oh I love going out with a fabulous wavy hair. I sat through this exact curling tutorial with a colleague few years ago, and since then I’ve been curling and twirling with the best of them. All I needed was someone to show me how to properly use a curling iron, and after that practice made perfect!

Here's the step by step procedure:

1. Section hair into a vertical section in front of the ear.

Spray section with hair spray. Holding the curling iron clamp with your index finger, clamp the section mid-shaft.

Reach your opposite hand over to grab the rubber top of your iron, and immediately curl upward.

4. Slightly loosen clamp grip on hair, and inch the curling iron downward. Then burl upward again. Repeat down the length of your hair section.

5. Loosen clamp grip and release. Spray.

6. Repeat steps 1 to 5 going around the head.

7. Run fingers through your hair to break up the curls. 

Section hair into small sections around the crown.

9. Wrap hair around the barrel of the curling iron (with clamp down). Repeat around the entire crown. Spray hair all over.

How to Pick Your Style

Having good clothes can boost your attitude and give you a sense of importance. The first step to confidence is liking what you see in a mirror.

Wear the right kind of clothes for you. - When choosing clothes, you should have in mind 
when and where you will be wearing it.

Pick the right accessories! Sunglasses, watches, rings, necklaces etc. It depends on what you are wearing and your lifestyle. If you're simply dressed, it's ok to m
ake a big deal out of your accessories. Otherwise, keep it simple in order to highlight your clothes!

Choose your hairstyle - NOT ALL HAIRSTYLES SUIT EVERYONE! Be creative, but make sure you can still wear the hairstyle in your daily activities. 

Don't just follow fashions. Choose clothes that will suit you. Not all fashionable clothes were meant for everybody, so find the clothes that are right for you.

I just wanna share some photos/ideas I got from Fashionista Trends:

Casual attire:

For office attire:

 long skirts in different style:

Always remember that you don't have to spend on a high-end clothes and accessories. In order to have a nice wardrobe, it depends on your budget and fashion sense. I suggest just buy a few expensive things for special occasions like weddings. The rest can be any brand that sell relatively cheap clothing. And the most important thing is to become simple and be who you are.


IHG's Dekada (10th Anniversary in the Philippines)

We have celebrated the 10th Anniversary of IHG (Intercontinental Hotels Group) last April 11, 2014 at the Le Pavillion in Pasay City. It's the company's big event that more than half of IHG employees attended. 

Of course, I did my curly hair 
(with my new colored short hair) and make up. Being a Makeup Artist is an advantage for special event like this because it's "tipid". 

Want to share some of my photos during the event:

♥♥♥ Family Day ♥♥♥

Spending quality family time together is very important. A strong family finds that opportunities for quality time emerge from quantity time: The more time you spend together, the better chance you have of sharing quality experiences.

I have spent my Friday off with them, eating meals together (pizza party), talking about the events of the day, sharing joys, playing with my nieces, shopping, buying some stuff for them and taking photos. (my mother is our photograper and my father left at home)

How bout you my loves, how much time you do you spend with your family?
