Myra Holistic Skin Care Campaign

Myra E has just launched their newest endorsers Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo and Sarah Geronimo. Perfect timing as they also launch Myra Holistic Skin Care Campaign.

To get that effortless, “lit from within” glow, you have to complement your creams and lotions with a healthy lifestyle and way of life. Use this checklist as a guide to gauge whether you’re taking care of your skin from within—it’s truly the best way to keeping your skin healthy and beautiful: 
  1. Sleep. Your entire body, including your skin, goes into repair mode while you snooze. Help your skin cells regenerate and your facial muscles relax by making sure you catch quality sleep. Still feel like you’re not getting enough rest when you wake up in the morning? One of the reasons could be that your alarm is rousing you in the middle of your deep-sleep stage. To make mornings less of a drag—or if you know you’re only catching a few hours of shuteye—try setting a wake-up time that’s a multiple of 90 minutes. This is the length of the average sleep cycle, so you’re sure to wake up to a beautiful morning.
  2. Exercise. Even though you know that a good work out is great for your heart, lungs, and mental outlook, chances are, you’re still not hitting the gym as much as you should. Here's a little motivation that’ll inspire you to get moving: Regular exercise is also one of the keys to scoring healthy skin. By increasing blood flow, exercise helps nourish skin cells and keeps them vital. It also helps carry away waste products, including free radicals, from working cells. Think of it as a cleanse for your skin, but from the inside.
  3. Hydrate. Healthy skin is well-hydrated skin. If you want your complexion to glow, you need to make sure that you’re drinking enough H20 on a daily basis. Keep this Kor water bottle on your desk at work or in your car, and remember to sip often. Want to add a little flavor? Toss in a lemon wedge or a splash of fruit juice—it’s a great substitute for sugary sodas or iced teas.
  4. Eat Well. Did you know that the food you eat matters to your skin almost as much as it does to your waistline? This is because your skin uses vitamins and nutrients from food to repair and rebuild damaged skin cells. Make time to plan your meals daily with the help of this Yummy Light Meals recipe book, so you don’t end up going for unhealthy options or fast food. 
  5. Take Vitamin E. This is where the heart of Holistic Skin Care is. As you go about your usual work day, you get exposed to bad and uncontrollable free radicals that damage your cells. The result: tired-looking skin that looks dull, dry, and aging. Help your skin bounce back and recoup easily by adding a daily dose of Vitamin E to your diet. Since this vitamin isn’t produced by the body, taking a powerful Vitamin E supplement like Myra, can help. It’s rich in anti-oxidants to help boost your skin from within and also stops skin-damaging, free radicals from stealing life from your cells. The best part is, it also repairs damaged cells and works hard to protect the healthy ones. And with more healthy cells in your body, you’ll be able to have beautiful, glowing and younger-looking skin throughout the years to come.

This is where Myra comes in!

Instant Glow with Myra VitaGlow BB Cream

Who doesn't want to look fresh, blooming, and effortlessly beautiful throughout the day in just a snap? We all do! Putting on makeup can be tiring when you have to spend a long time doing it. I am a firm believer of keeping it simple especially on normal days. You don't have to wear tons of makeup. It's important for your beauty to shine from within. And Myra VitaGlow BB Cream is going to help you! It is packed with multi-benefits for your skin that allow you to combine the prettifying power of skincare and makeup.

 There are 2 shades available.



Here's a side by side comparison of the shades:

It claims that:
  1. It’s moisturizing. This lightweight cream hydrates your skin to keep it soft and supple.
  2. It contains Vitamin E. This helps nourish your skin even more, so your complexion appears younger-looking and healthy.
  3. It doubles as foundation. The tinted formula comes in two shades: Ivory and Beige, to help you even out your skintone perfectly and hide pigmentations.
  4. It contains skin-enhancing minerals. Staying late at the office? Use this unique BB cream to add a natural, glowing finish to your skin! You’ll love how the subtle, light-reflecting shimmers in this cream will make you look like you’ve got a lit-from-within glow. 
  5. You can use it as concealer. Just pat an extra layer of Myra VitaGlow BB Cream to camouflage dark spots and blemishes.
  6. It’s also has sunscreen. The SPF15 in this easy to bring tube will protect you from harmful UV rays that causes premature aging. 
  7. It’s hypoallergenic. Girls with sensitive skin don’t need to worry about breakouts, because this dermatologist-tested cream is proven safe for daily use.
  8. It's the most affordable! There's no need to hesitate when it comes to purchasing this product, since you can score instant glowing skin for only P99 a tube. Such a great beauty steal!

What I LIKE:
  • It's so handy.
  • It's so easy to use.
  • SPF15 gives you good sun protection.
  • Gives you light to medium coverage.
  • Gives a subtle glow without looking too greasy.
  • Very easy to blend. You can use fingers, sponge or a foundation brush.
  • Perfect for that no makeup look!
  • Inexpensive

  • Touch ups throughout the day. I highly suggest you use a primer first if you have oily/combination skin. And keep a setting powder with you.
  • After 4 hours, I can already see a little bit of oil  on my tzone. So blotting is important.
  • Light to medium coverage. If you need a lot of coverage, this may not be enough for you.
  • You have to set it with powder after applying it or else it will settle on lines.

Here's my take on a Glowing Look. Very simple and easy to recreate. :)

I really enjoy using this when I'm on the go and I don't need much coverage. It's light on the skin and it blends really well. I use Ivory and it suits me perfectly. It's been my companion the past couple of weeks. Aside from moisturizing my skin, it also has light-reflecting minerals that make me look radiant. Amidst the rain and stormy weather, I can still get instant glowing skin by using Myra VitaGlow BB Cream. 

I also want to say a huge thank you for my uber pretty personalized travel brush set! :D

YELLOWMUM: #oliviarobynturns1 Party Stylist and Theme

One of the things I wanted for sure was a nice party for Robyn. I just think that since you're already spending for the party, might as well make it presentable. Presentable doesn't always mean expensive. It only means you put more thought into the decor and feel.

I suck at DIYs. I really do. Also, having a little girl with no help really take up a lot of my time. You see I'm a full time mom yet I have work on the side and I do makeup jobs as well. Did I mention I also cook and clean the house? So I knew I wouldn't be able to do it efficiently and beautifully.

My husband agrees. He told me that it's better to hire a party stylist so that I won't have to bother and worry about the decor. This was a very easy decision for us since we initially was going to have the party and the baptism on the same day. I knew I wouldn't have time to check on the venue before the guests arrive, so having a party stylist will allow me to keep my sanity. Haha!

At first, I had 3 party stylists in mind and upon talking to them, I chose The Party Studio. I stumbled upon their Facebook page and fell in love with their decor. They sent me their packages and I chose the Posh Shabby package which consists of mostly lanterns and paper pompoms. The other package uses balloons as their main decor. But since Robyn's a girl and I wanted it quite girly, I knew a chic design was the best.

They have a package that already includes the host/magician/ventriloquist so I got that. That means less stress for me to find a host/magician. Just to let you know he was actually good and very entertaining! There were games not just for the kids but even for adults too. I also got their photobooth and their candy buffet. But more on that later. ;)

Pinky, who's the owner of The Party Studio was very easy to talk to. She was very accomodating and was quite helpful during the event itself. I admit I'm a very meticulous and OC woman. I've always been. It's both my stregth and my flaw. So I knew that even though I wouldn't be the one designing the venue, I wanted to be very hands on with the inspiration and design. So I asked if we'd be able to have meetings before the event and she said yes. Unfortunately, we were only able to meet once during the contract signing. The rest of the conversation was done thru emails.

I sent a lot of different inspirations and ideas that I wanted. I searched the net for a whole lot of photos and looks that I wanted to incorporate in the party. The theme that I chose was Ice Cream Party. Simply because I wanted it to be different. I wanted it to be different from the usual themes. I also didn't want a girly girly theme. And I wanted it to be something unique. Below is my vlog on the Party Theme.

I'm happy that most of the designs that I liked, The Party Studio was able to execute. I loved the color combination Pinky suggested to me when I told her I didn't want a pastel party. It just worked really well.

 Just look at this ceiling decor!

 Wishing tree tags, I chose popsicle and ice cream shapes.

 Table Centerpiece

I also loved the frames they lent to us. There was a framed photo of Robyn on each table. The Party Studio also provided the place mats which just made the whole look come together.

One of my most favorite is the straw design. The Party Studio provided paper straws for the guests and I asked them to put a little ice cream cone on it. I got the idea from Pinterest.

The backdrop was fantastic. I remember when they first showed a photo similar to this and asked if I wanted it. I definitely did. It was neat yet it showed an Ice Cream Parlor feel. I chose to change the roof color though to a more vibrant one. There were hanging ice cream cones too. And the lettering was part of the package. (No, we weren't able to take those home.)

Also saw this simple yet really cool idea for the kids' tables and just knew I had to have this too! Just place the napkin under the paper plates and make it look like an ice cream cone. 

I guess there were a couple issues along the way. There were a couple of things that they weren't able to add though. I wanted like a chalkboard with some information about Robyn. Pinky said she'll put it right at the entrance, but they weren't able to do that. Also, there was supposed to be a Celebrant Memorabilia and I actually brought some stuff of Robyn, but they weren't able to decorate and style it too. I guess because the venue was really packed and there wasn't much space for that anymore. And I wish the wishing tree was highlighted more. Because a lot of the guests didn't really see it and I think it would have been really great to have more wishes and notes for Robyn.

But even though there were some issues, they were so easy to talk to. I was even able to ask them to add some more centerpieces since we had a lot of guests and we had to add a couple more tables. They styled a lot of the tables without questions asked! :)

I have always chosen to work with people I'm comfortable with and Pinky and her husband Bonnie were very down to earth, easy to talk to and very friendly. Overall, I'm really really happy with their service. And I do recommend them to those who want the get a party stylist. I have no regrets and I know that they made the party even more fun and because of them it was even more successful! :D
