Procedures For Improving Physical Appearance

  • Posted on April 23, 2014 at 7:15 am

Most people want to look their best by living a health lifestyle. However, cosmetic surgery can create sensational life changing results overnight. Aging creates different issues with the skin and body parts. For example, the skin loses its volume and texture during the aging process. Fortunately, there are simple procedures available that could restore the attractive appearance of youthful skin. Face lifts are done to tighten up any skin that tends to sag or hang. Such procedures may also be used to touch up on the neck.

Product Feature: Syoss Moisture Intensive Care Shampoo and Conditioner

As the ultimate body accessory, hair has to be protected from natural and superficial elements. It needs special attention, from its roots to tips, to maintain its moisture, health and sheen.

This summer, hair’s No.1 enemy is the heat. Excessive exposure to the sun can lead to flakes and frizz, dryness, dullness, and unmanageability. Swimming too much can also be damaging where,seawater and chlorine can make your hair dry and straw-like in no time.


When you’re away, in-salon treatments is out of the question. The best thing to do is to stock on a hardworking shampoo and a moisture-enhancing deep conditioner.

Deprivation and Meditation: Sudden Flight Series at the Picasso Abstract Painter Chiqui Rodriguez

  • Posted on April 13, 2014 at 1:37 pm

Filipino abstract painter, Chiqui Rodriguez announces her major new series entitled SUDDEN FLIGHT, her solo show to be held in Zurich by late summer will have its preview opening in a two-man show at the Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences, hosted by Altromondo Gallery on 22 May 2014 and continuing through 18 July 2014.

The 15 selected paintings from a total of over 100 works that comprise the SUDDEN FLIGHT series, awash in vibrant color, are sure to dazzle visitors to the Picasso Boutique Serviced Residences. Chiqui’s unique approach to blending acrylic pigments on canvas creates gem-like surfaces. Peering through the surface to what is depicted below, the viewer realizes that all is not as glowing as it first appears. Chiqui is noted for her deep abstraction of complex realism.

Chiqui also explores a complex subject; her work calls attention to our culture’s thought of hardwork. Much of Chiqui’s artwork is influenced by her experience in the corporate world. Through this new body of work, she connects hardwork to social class as a form of meditation.

Says Chiqui of her SUDDEN FLIGHT series, “I was inspired by my short trip to Brussels after a show held in Berlin in 2013. I arrived with the intent of finding an artist who would be willing to collaborate with me in my upcoming projects, so I started to look around. Instead of finding an artist, I found some Filipinos who work around the city. My interaction with them in a different environment led to varied conversations about how challenging life is to be away from their love ones but nevertheless find solace knowing that their families benefit from their sacrifice. I started on my e-sketchpad and started to express my thoughts after this encounter. The title ‘Sudden Flight’ refers to several layers of meaning: sudden burst of happiness, excitement as reaching out lives of far-flung Filipinos extending compassion, a moment of bliss.”

The show plans to bring forward awareness on the inner thoughts of Overseas Filipino Workers.

About the Artist:

Chiqui Rodriguez

Chiqui Rodriguez enjoys telling people how she started as an artist. It kicked-off one morning discussing the paintings she had been working on back in 2003 while having coffee with her long-time confidante.

Saladbox + SkinFood Sparty!

  • Posted on April 1, 2014 at 8:28 am

As we officially welcome the unforgiving summer heat, a sparty can’t be far behind. A spa indulgence was already underway, when I received an oh-so-timely invite from Saladbox for its second installment of Saladbox + Skin Food Sparty held at Nail Cocktales Hand and Foot Spa located in Tomas Morato last March 29.


 Look who’s ready to sparty! I kind of knew I was in the right place when I saw those familiar boxes that lined the steps up to Nail Cocktales Spa place. :-)

I have always been a solid Saladbox follower every since it was launched to the beauty box subscription world. I arrived rather early, so I was able to take photos as the organizers were still doing their last minute touches. :-)

So apt. Skin Food on a platter. :-)

The very first product that I have tried from Skin Food is their Bath Salt. That goes back to 2008. It was the first bath salt I used when our home was newly constructed with the bath tub that I have dreamed of since I was a little girl. So how can I forget!  I totally loved how it felt on my skin. I just learned from the Skin Food folks in this sparty that their bath salt product has already been phased out. Figures why it’s always out of stock when I go check.


The sparty has its very own official event hashtags! Sweet. You can check out the photo essays on Instagram via #SkinFoodSaladbox and #SBxSkinFoodSparty. Don’t forget to follow @shopsaladbox and @SkinFoodPh on Twitter and Instagram while you’re at it. :-)


The corner that spells makeover! Gotta love how dainty this spa place is.
