"Made just for YOU!": Dearberry Philippines Launch

In adapting beauty regimen, you don't have to look far. Koreans have proved to us that organic and natural products are still the best way to maintain the skin. What's good about Asian products in general is that they are made for Asian skin.

Like our upcoming Korean brand in town, they introduce products "made just for you".

Let us welcome Dearberry! Giving you a peek from their fun and sweet launch!

This intimate launch for bloggers was held at Oakwood Hotel in Ortigas. 

The hosts introduced the brand and their wide range of products one-by-one! See that aisle? It was full of beauty products!
Starting off from the skin care items, you would almost be overwhelmed by the types of skin care products that Koreans use. Mostly are anti-aging, anti-wrinkles, and brigthening. Then they move on to primers, bases, face,lip and eye makeups. A certified makeup addict haven I must say, cause they have it all! Even makeup applicators like brushes and blenders. 

The products were passed around so we could examine and try them out. 

Haha! I should've arrived without makeup lol! I could do a full face makeup with these products!


Their eye makeups were those who caught our attention.

That wing.
I just made that in less than two minutes, JUST using that Rockat Eyeliner! ON THE SPOT! 
Highly suggested for newbies and busy people who still want to rock a wing in an instant. 

Here are some products that they are offering:

Cleansers, toners, moisturizers, makeup removers.

Creams and lotions


One of my faves! Suri Suri compact powders! I like that there's a glass divider between the puff and the powder. I believe that it is to prevent unnecessary product transfers, and personally to prevent growth of microorganisms. (So you better clean your puffs regularly!)

Blush and lip color in one! CheeKiss!
Perfect for teens and college girls who's just starting with their make-up kits and have small space in their bags!

Flirt and Lipservice lipsticks with various pink and red shades.

And a whole lot more! Watch out for my upcoming reviews!

Korean beauty products are famous for the youthful and not so made-up face peg.
In here, they also showed us how to use Dearberry products to do a no-make-up, simple look.

These cuties are not hard to love! Can't help but to play with their line of products. Haha!


The "mascara face"! 

Love them!!

I know you just can't wait to try Dearberry products too!

Novuhair Supports Alopecia Areata Awareness in Celebrating Inner Strength

September marks the month-long commemoration of Alopecia Areata awareness worldwide. Alopecia areata is a condition when hair loss occur due to faults in the immune system attacking the hair follicles which results in partial or total loss of hair on the head and other parts of the body.

Leading this year’s celebration in the country is Alopecia Philippines, a group founded by singer and songwriter Abby Asistio in 2012. She has been championing the cause of empowering citizens with this condition.

Like her, I'm also suffering from severe hairloss. We realized it since I was in highschool so I always kept my hair short. They keep on telling me that stress causes it. But until today I still shed hair. It's quite depressing to see lumps of hair everyday. I'm trying natural ways and home remedies but I feel like they're not enough. I fear one day that I would just touch a bald spot on my head.

Abby is no stranger to alopecia, having been diagnosed with alopecia areata since she was four years old. Abby’s decision to come out in public with her condition was a major turning point in her life.

On September 2012, Abby decided to start an online campaign in time with Alopecia Awareness Month by inviting family and friends to pose with the double “A” (inverted “V”) sign using their fingers on the photo sharing site, Instagram. It quickly caught on and Abby was overwhelmed by the response from netizens, with over a thousand photo contributions to date.

This paved the way for the beginnings of Alopecia Philippines. It aims to raise awareness about alopecia and correct common misconceptions and perceptions about it, provide encouragement to people afflicted with it, and create an online support community for them.
 What started out as a group of ten is now more than 300 members strong and its Facebook page – Alopecia Areata Awareness, draws followers from all over the world.

I used to not be bothered about hairloss, but until you see that your hair is thinning you'll be scared of waking up the next day with a patch on the head.

It's good to hear that Novuhair has been supporting the cause for Alopecia Philippines through Abby Asistio. Abby have been using the brand continuously since March 2013 and she has only praises to share using the product.

Nature has provided a safe and effective answer to hair loss and scalp disorders. Novuhair is the only topical scalp lotion in the market that has the highest concentration of natural ingredients, FDA-certified and ACD-compliant. It is a homegrown, proudly Philippine-made product that is globally competitive.

7 Flavors by Chef Boy Logro World Fusion Buffet-Review

San Juan is probably one of the go-to place for variety of hidden gems. For buffet place, I think going   somewhere slightly secluded yet spacious lets you enjoy your unlimited heaps. Have you ever felt being overwhelmed in a buffet not only with lots food choices but also with people going up their seats and grabbing food from all directions? 

In 7 Flavors, you will feel the comfort of buffet dining experience!

This two-storey restaurant is located at 196, Mabini St. Addition Hills, San Juan. The buffet is located in the second floor while downstairs offers ala carte food items. The first floor could also serve as an events place for gatherings. It also has a wide parking space for your cars.

Here's the dining area of the second floor. As you can see, the tables have ample distance to each other and very spacious. Less chance of bumping with someone with a full plate There are also  rooms for groups and families!

The area is also well lighted, and while you're eating you can watch episodes of "Idol sa Kusina" shown on the TV.

The 7 Flavors: Sweet, Sour, Salty, Bitter, Spicy, Umami, Astringent

The food are sure delectable as the owner of this place is no other than "Idol sa Kusina" host and chef, Chef Boy Logro. 
My family is a fan of his show and we always gather just to watch him. His humble beginnings when he started as a dishwasher boy then he went up to be the executive chef of a hotel then to royalties, were very inspiring and he's just fun to watch along with Bettina Carlos!

Here's their buffet area. Left side are the appetizers, salads and fresh food.

 Salad starters! For some who wants to toss different ingredients and dressing, you can make your own with fresh ingredients!

Of course, it wouldn't be called a world fusion buffet if there are not any foreign dishes.
The difference I can say with other buffet is that they have limited offerings. Which is kinda good for those who know specifically what they want.  Unlimited of something you really, really want.

Like Maki sushi.


and probably my favorite (I heard others loved too) the Make-your-own Tacos!!!

I'm not the rice meal type of person, so this stretch of chaffing dish didn't excite me as much. Only few photos I took but they have Filipino dishes like Kare-kare!


Mafu tofu

They also have a carving station featuring roast beef!

See my plate? My faves! Tacos, pasta, maki, pizza and beef!!!
It's full of carbs I know, I just love the umami taste more, especially the tacos!

The meal already made me feel full. But I saved some space for dessert. Haha!

Dessert station!!!
Most of them are pastries but they also have coffee jelly and bilo-bilo for non-baked goods.


Well-baked cookies! This one's my fave since they are chewy and bigger than usual chocolate chip cookies.

Carrot cup cakes


Mango royale

And if you still crave for a Filipino dessert, why not try their make-your-own Halo-Halo!
They also have different flavors of ice cream to top them off.
Sugar? Yes please!

For the drinks you can have sodas and fruit juices, or milkshakes like this Campfire milkshake! It's like a drink version of S'mores. Sweet with bits of marshmallows. 

I didn't experience umay in 7 Flavors. Probably because I'm more of a quality than quantity so the limited variety is just enough for me. Like I can scan the whole buffet area from a spot, and you already know what food you'll be getting.

The place also welcomes parties, groups and family bondings! With those enclosed rooms, you can fill up your plates and have like a family-style dining. 
The place is also well-lighted, taking pictures was a breeze for me. I didn't have to edit much so I can say that the place is instagrammable!

Dinner- Php500.00

Friday-Sunday and Holidays
