Underneath your Clothes: La Senza

It feels so empowering to wear a sexy lingerie underneath. It gives confidence to a woman - that "conquer the world today" feeling.
La Senza Boutique
The first time I discovered La Senza through my never-ending browsing on the internet, I fell in love with their designs.

La Senza, for me, is the slightly cheaper version of Victoria's Secret.. 

And as much as I want to buy some stuffs from them, being the kuripot, I always end up walking out of the boutique without purchasing anything. Hanggang tingin lang ako. Haha!

Last April, my mom came home from Riyadh. And guess what?! She have some La Senza undies for me. Lucky me. ^_^

What do I love about La Senza?
  • The designs, from the plain ones to the funky printed ones.
  • There are lot of styles to choose from, from the full coverage to thongs, from pambahay to date-night.
  • They have undies made from cotton.
  • They offer a lot of sexy lingerie, bras, panties, sleepwear, swimwear and more!
  • Their "HAPPY HOUR" or just simply "sale" where you can buy 5 undies for only 1,495 pesos(regular price is 495/piece) :)
  • It's Fashion Meets Lingerie.
Why should women wear cotton undies?
  • Many vaginal infections that include symptoms of itching, odor, and discharge may decrease just by wearing cotton underwear. Cotton helps to keep the vagina free of excessive moisture, and allows the area to "breathe".


Now, who says girls can't have fun? :)

Summer Fun at Puerto Galera

Summer Fun '13 @ Puerto Galera

For our summer escapade this year, hubby and I planned to have an overnight stay @ White Beach, Puerto Galera. Of course, our 4 year-old daughter was with us.

Here's our itinerary and some expenses we incurred during our trip. :)

Day 1

3:00 am- We left Cavite( Nag-taxi kami from our house sa Bacoor hanggang sa terminal ng JAM sa LRT-Buendia)

4:00 am - Off to Batangas Pier. Bus fare from Buendia to Batangas is 166.30 pesos each.

6:00 am- We reached Batangas Pier. We head off directly to Terminal 3 to pay for our round-trip ticket. A round trip ticket costs 500 each. You also have to pay the terminal fee and environmental fee. There are 3 fast crafts you can choose from: Minolo Shipping Lines, Father and Sons Lines and... I forgot the other one. Hehe.

We chose Minolo Shipping Lines. Yun daw pinaka-OK based sa mga forums na nabasa ko. Which is true naman, mabilis and malaki and bago. ^_^

Note: If you bring toddlers with you, you are only require to pay the environmental fee, the rest are free. Mas makakamura din if you'll get a roundtrip ticket.

7:30 am - We left the Port. Ang aga namin pero naiwan kami nung 5:45 na trip I guess. Kaya nagintay pa kami ng till 7:30. Anyway, comfortable naman sa loob ng terminal. :)

Golden Hawk

Around 9:00 am- Unluckily, the fast craft dropped us on Muelle and not directly to White Beach. From there, there are Minolo shuttles (free) that brought us to White Beach.

9:30 am- We reached White Beach. We went first to the ticket booth of Minolo to confirm our return trip. 

We then went to Buena Lynne's where we reserved a month earlier an A/C Room which costs 1,500 pesos for an overnight stay.

We were very disappointed with this resort. 

First, if you leave the room, the A/C will automatically shut down because the plug is attached with the door keys. 

Second, the A/C is not working properly. We were in the room for hours yet the temperature is still so hot, we were even sweating. So hubby asked the caretaker if they can transfer us to another room. Good thing, they allowed us to transfer and this time, we were able to remove the keys from the plug so we can leave the A/C on even if we're outside. Hahaha!

Anyway, maraming resort sa White Beach na pwede mong pagpilian. Pagbaba mo pa lang ng fast craft, marami ng lalapit sayo and magaalok ng room. :)

Brunch - 250 pesos. Good for 2. Includes Sinigang, Liempo, Talong with Ensalada and 2 sakto coke. (The food is so-so.)

Fun under the Sun
After few hours, we decided to went back to our resort since the sun is already scorching hot.

We doze off since we woke up so early that day and also had so much fun at the beach. We woke up at around 3pm and decided to get some food. 10am pa yung last naming kain! :p

Merienda - Waffle with egg and bacon @ Food Trip sa Galera- around 100 each (2 thumbs up! :) )
                   Fruit Shake - 60 pesos each

Cravings Satisfied!
After we ate, we headed back to the beach.

Father and Daughter Bonding
Beautiful Sunset
Dinner - We ate at Hiyas Angeline Bar. The food is great! Try their Fillet Mignon, it's superb! The service is also superb! Super bait nung gay na nag-asikaso samin.

By the way, at dinner, almost lahat ng restaurants, may mga tinda na na ihaw-ihaw like pork bbq, chicken bbq, squid, talong. Nakakatuwa kasi lahat ng restaurant, parepareho ng tinda, even yung itsura ng bbq stick they use. :)

Great Food, Great Service!
Heading back to the resort, we saw these fire dancers.  Nakakainis lang, I find the gays na nagseserve sa resto na may mga firedancers na yan na super rude!
Day 2

Breakfast - Food Trip sa Galera.  We had honey-cured Chicken wings, Salted eggs with Tomatoes, Sisig and UNLIMITED garlic rice for 175 I guess, nakalimutan ko na, basta around 150-175 pesos.  The food was really great but the service is so frustrating. 

The servers are not attentive. Kuwetuhan ng kwentuhan and pag nakita nila na parang rich yung guest, super entertain sila sa mga yun to the point na hindi na nila inaasikaso yung iba.

After breakfast, balik na ulit kami sa beach.

Hubby and I went for a massage. Back massage for 30minutes costs 100 pesos. Pwede na. actually nung first day namin, ang sarap nung pagkakamasahe samin, kaya lang this day, masyadong hard. Depende din talaga siguro kung sino magmamasahe sayo. If whole body, 200 pesos. They also offer na i-braid yung buhok for 100-200 pesos.

We weren't able to try the different activities since we have our daughter with us. Some of the locals are offering to watch over our child as we go para-sailing but I don't want to have my daughter's safety at stake. 

Fun! Fun! Fun!
Lunch- Pacific Divers. I find the meals a bit over price. The food were all bland. Super mahal tapos wala namang lasa. Sayang.

250/meal. Overpriced!
We bought some shirts as a remembrance of our trip. :)
  • White shirt w/ print - 100 pesos
  • Black shirt w/ print - 120 pesos
  • Kid's size - 80 pesos
12:45 - Our scheduled trip back to Batangas Pier. Unfortunately, the fast craft was ONE HOUR late!

Yung Minolo lang yung parang may waiting shade for their passangers habang nagaantay ng fast craft. Kaya lang, uupo ka sa buhangin, though may mga karton na pwede mong upuan.

Bye Puerto Galera :(
3:00 - We finally reached Batangas Pier. From here, we rode Ceres Bus going to Alabang.

Happiness! :)
All in all, it was a great experience and a memorable trip since I was able to spend it with my Honey and Thea. :)

Human Heart Nature: THERE CAN BE MIRACLES! :)

Today, I chose to make a review about HUMAN HEART NATURE products that I have been using since last year.

I became an ALL-ORGANIC advocate when it comes to beauty products when I saw an articles about PARABENS and all other harmful chemicals than can cause skin irritations, premature aging and breast cancer risk.

I started surfing the net and found HUMAN HEART NATURE. Most organic products are a bit pricey but HHN offers wide arrange of products at affordable prices.

So, what I have with me are:

  • Human Heart Nature 100% NATURAL SUNFLOWER BEAUTY OIL

50ml = P129.75
100ml = 249.75

 - According to its label, it can helps lighten dark undereye circles, dark spots and pimple marks, minimize stretchmarks, lighten underarms, adds shine to dull hair, moisturizes the face and body and MORE!

And true to its words, it is indeed a MIRACLE OIL! :) I use it for my pimples, and it easily dries and leave no pimple marks at all, for my hair during those of my bad hair days, my underarm just before I go to sleep. I also use it for my daughter's insect bites and wounds. :)

50ml = P149.75
100ml = P259.75

What I like about this product is it has 15 vitamins and minerals in it. Unlike other moisturizers, this products is very lightweight, non-greasy and does not have strong scent. If you have an oily skin, you can still use this product. Trust me, it is not oily at all for I also have an oily skin. It will really make your skin soft and subtle. the only downside with this is since it is all natural, it does not SPF with it. But then, I still love this product!

50ml = P149.75
100ml = 259.75
This night moisturizer is not your any ordinary moisturizer at all. It has plant collagen that according to its label, infuses with skin and help stimulates cells regeneration. Like the day moisturizer, it is also very lightweight and non-greasy. And I super love its smell. You can also use this if you have sensitive skin or oily skin.

Put this after you have cleansed your face before going to sleep and you will definitely wake up with a refreshed healthy glow! It works its magic while you sleep. I can't resist touching my face everytime I wake up (no joke. super soft and subtle ng skin).  :)


So, Go. Give it a try. You're not just doing your skin a favor but you're also supporting our local products.

Yeah, all of Human Heart Nature Products are not just 100% organic but also 100% Philippine made. :)

For Keeps <3

  • At night, after cleansing your face, put the night moisturizer.
  • After few minutes, apply the sunflower oil. You can apply it to your whole face or just on those parts where you have pimple or marks. You can also use the oil for your elbow, knees, underarms, stretchmarks, hair and dry lips.( It is super versatile, you can use it anywhere in your body.)
  • At day, after cleansing your face, apply the day moisturizer.
These are all 100% organic, so the shelf-life of these products are relatively short unlike those other moisturizers sold in the market.

WHERE TO BUY: You can avail this products through
  • WEBSITE: http://humanheartnature.com
  • DEALERS - you can see in their website the complete list of their dealers and their respective address and contact numbers
  • BEAUTY BAR. Human Heart Nature products are available in all Beauty Bar outlets. Though, the selection is very limited.
