There are things you can do and incorporate in to your daily habit to enhance your beauty without shelling out some big bucks. Here are some tips for you to try do today.

1. Stay hydrated

You might have heard this a thousand times but there is nothing wrong with repeating something very important. You need to make sure that you are drinking plenty of water daily. When your body gets dehydrated, the wrinkles on your skin will become more apparent. Keep yourself from drinking too much liquid that could cause you to dehydrate, such as coffee or alcohol, and drink water regularly throughout the whole day. Water is what is used by the body to flush away the toxin buildup inside of us, so if you don’t get enough water it will build up inside your body, and it will for sure be seen on the quality of your skin.

My nightmare experiences with ISPs

The incessant issue has always been our country’s key internet providers’ inability to deliver, as they continue to shortchange their subscribers with speed that belongs to the dogs. I can be very patient but because of all the nightmares I’ve experienced, I have personally have had it with each of them. And this being a nationwide problem is something that resonates with me.

To give a brief backgrounder, we have shifted to 5 different ISPs since 2009! As fed up as we are, we are left but to put up with the lesser evil. And please don’t get me started with each company’s two year lock-in period, which feels a lot like being imprisoned by coldblooded capitalists, to be honest. I really don’t know what else to call them after being ever consistent with their bad service. I have in fact, blogged about some of our very unfortunate experiences.

5 Special Things You Can Do for Your Mom on Mother’s Day

Your mom is a special lady, and she deserves all of the great things in the world because of her love and care of you and your family. So, this Mother’s Day, treat your mom to a cluster of special things from the list of ideas below.

Breakfast in Bed Never Gets Old

The only difference between the breakfasts then and the breakfasts now is that you are now capable of cooking something awesome for your mom. Skip the cereal. And, instead of opting for toast and simple ingredients, go all out. Use fresh berries to make a compote for a homemade batch of waffles, pancakes, or French toast. Really show your mom how much you care with a good meal, served hot to her bedside. (more…)

The Gift of a Healthy ‘Crowning Glory’ Fit for a Queen this Mother’s Day

Mother's Day for Novuhair

Cliché it may be, but there’s indeed a woman behind the person we are today. And that’s no less than her—our mother. We used to call her Nanay, Inay, ‘Nay, Mama, Mommy or simply Mom. She deserves more than that given the pivotal role she fulfills in rearing us from childhood to adulthood, and possibly for the rest of our lives.

There may be opposing beliefs whether that greater maternal instinct is biologically predetermined or socially imposed, but everyone would agree that a mother is hardwired to love and care about the whole family, especially the children, all the time. For better or worse, it’s always the welfare of everyone at home on top of her priority.

No wonder she’s an epitome of a doting human being that touches everybody’s life. So, it’s but right to honor and return all the favors she has done for us. And what a better way to do this than this Mother’s Day.

Still drooling over the ways on how to spend this time of the year again with her? Well, you may opt for the basics of gift-giving from simple trinkets to expensive items. But take note, your appreciation of her is not equated by the tag price of your present. It’s the thought that counts, as an adage says. (more…)

Kim Jones shares how to be a #SummerHairExpert, and how vital Cream Silk Triple Expert Rescue is in her Summer Essentials.

Summer, being an unavoidable season in our tropical country, we are left but to love (for the most of us, at least) the best of what it has to offer. This includes adventures at the beach, and countless explorations that the beautiful islands across each corner of the Philippines have to offer. Our beaches are so well-loved the world over, and it will be a waste for us not to love our own.

Shopback

Through ShopBack, we can earn cash incentives each time we shop.

The Filipino Videoke Culture

Our love affair for Videoke or Karaoke goes back many generations. It’s a love/hate, really. There is almost not a day that a contact will not rant about a neighbor’s speaker blasting on their videoke session on Facebook. The love affair of Filipinos with music may have a lot to do with our being musically-inclined. It has become our way of life that whether or not we have trained voices, we feel that we have the liberty to just belt out as we wish. It’s a free country, really. But we also need to be considerate. (more…)
