Avon Fashions Declares “Confidence is the New Sexy” as it champions body positivity and denounces body shaming.

Avon Fashions makes a strong point of celebrating women’s real beauty and sexiness with its new campaign, “Confidence is the New Sexy”. The country’s no. 1 intimate apparel brand upholds women’s right to feel confident regardless of body type by wearing perfectly fitting and comfortable intimate wear. Avon Fashions presented its latest line of Intimate Apparel, highlighted by the new Jamila Bra & Panty Set, which gives the right fit for curvy, plus size, petite, or athletically built women.

During the event, four women took turns delivering monologues to share how they feel about body stereotypes, and how they have come to discover that confidence is what “sexiness” is all about.

“A woman may be strong, curvy, petite, and fuller, but these are only shapes and sizes,” the four women proclaimed in unison. “Our skin is a record of our milestones, our bones are barks that withstood storms, our muscles are symbols of our endurance, and our shape is our fingerprint. The true measure of our beauty is in how much we embrace who we truly are. That’s real confidence and that’s what makes us truly sexy.” (more…)

My First Zumba Experience and Robinsons Supermarket Wellness Festival

Robinsons Place Antipolo Wellness Festival

What better way to jump into wellness weekend than to have my first ever zumba experience! Zumba has been around for years now but I never really got myself to do it. I’ve been okay with my 1 minute, twice a day planking and squats, thank you. At least, with my crazy busy schedule, 3 minutes is all I can spare throughout the day. If I get lucky, I get to do Jeff’s 4 minute interval training. But that’s just once a week and that doesn’t really count for a legit workout when I’m not persistent at it.

Along with fellow mom bloggers, we trooped to Tipulo Modern Filipino Cuisine in Antipolo last weekend.

Woohoo! #FirstTime to #Zumba today. Thank you, @robsupermarket #WellnessCaravan

So Zumba, I went, with 4 other cool mommy bloggers who already knew a thing or two about this zumba craze.  I was surprised that there were some moves similar to Hip Hop Abs, which I used to do some years back. The stretches and crazy lounges were enough to remind me, thank you.

That’s me wearing a black dri-fit shirt giving out a ‘gasp’ I was pretty unsure of what I was doing as the music went off. Yikes! (more…)

Three Simple Health Strategies That Can Help You Look And Feel Better

#BeASpacer at Space EDSA: Redifining Dormitory Living #SpaceEDSA

One of the reasons why I’d rather stay indoors these days is the crazy traffic. You’d think it was the holidays but will think again, the holidays are done and over with yet traffic has gone beyond holiday-levels. It’s downright frustrating. What used to be a 20 minute ride has become 3 grueling hours and we are told that it’ll only get worse with the number of vehicles that are projected to drive the streets in the next three years and without any plans of improvement of our traffic infrastructure within the metro. We are not just losing money as a nation, we’re also robbed of time that we’d rather spend doing productive things than sit for hours on end in hopeless traffic.

SPACE Lounge

Now that sounds a little too negative for a blog intro, but it’s Manila traffic reality, folks. So when I heard about Space Edsa located at Major Homes where dormitory living is redefined, I feel relieved for the young professional who struggle their way to and coming from the office.

Space Edsa

Space Edsa is a convenient and affordable living solution built with the young, energetic and dynamic lifestyles of students and office workers in mind. This innovative redefined dormitory living is designed to help as much Filipinos to have the privilege to enjoy taking one ride or walk to work. The idea is to allow each Spacer to live near where they want to be. (more…)
