More Energy for Active Moms!

I was complaining to my friends two weeks ago --  being a full-time mom to 3 kids, and working part-time, with a total of 2-hour commute daily.....  is sooo exhausting!  More often than not, at the end of the day, when the kids are tucked-in, I just want to hunker down to bed myself.

But then again, I still have to be a wife!  I try to stay up late for my husband who brings work home til about 12pm, when I normally would hit the sack.   I am so tired! 

Is this the sign that I'm getting old?  At 38, I try to eat healthy,  and squeeze some pilates in between fetching the kids from their tuition centers.  But still, I don't feel revived! 

My friends recommended this latest product from Pharmanex, the health supplement brand of Nu Skin Enterprises.  It's called Ageloc R2.  It's another revolutionary product as it's address Aging at the source .. our genes.

There are actually two components that make up this product.  

Taken in the morning, ageLOC R2 Day optimises cellular energy production to help you recharge and take control of a new day.

Taken in the evening, ageLOC R2 Night optimises each cell’s natural purification process, helping you start each day feeling refreshed and renewed.

So, unlike all the other multi-vitamins and supplements in the market, it's more tailored to give you a boost in the morning, when you need it and allows you a restful sleep at night.

I've been taking Ageloc R2 for a week now, and so far, I've seen improvement in my energy.  I'm more alert as soon as I wake up in the morning.  I don't feel sluggish and there's no dragging of feet like before; and at night, I am more relaxed and my sleep is deep, unlike before when I wake up at the first sound of my maid banging pots and pots in the kitchen.  Less dreams, as well.  I actually hate dreaming at night.  It gets me anxious since my subsconcious is acting overtime.  It's probably the reason I wake up tired before.

If you are interested to get this amazing ageloc R2, costs 8,000 Php for a 30day supply;  you call the company directly at  689-NUSKIN or drop by their offices at 15th Floor Octagon Building, San Miguel Avenue, Pasig City.

This is me --- more energetic and longer stamina to run and play with my growing children!

Best Fashion Advice, I take to Heart.

Less is More.

Applies to almost everything. From make-up, clothes and accessories... As soon as I chose my outfit for the day, I ask myself.   What is the "ONE" thing that's going to be the central focus of the eyes?  

Wearing printed clothes -- that means, it's the prints that's the focus

All the other things (necklace, earings, bracelets, bags) must be subdued ; (plain beads, stud earings, thin bracelets, pearls)...  nothing else that will distract people from the nice print you are wearing.... except perhaps Red Lips (but shadows, blush-on are also pale); no bright colored nails as well.

Wearing plain colored clothes - might call for accents; accessories

I am very fond of fun, quirky necklaces that I use for to perk up a plain outfit.  Either the color is the same family of the dress, or completely contrasting.  Works out as well.   Note on buying acessories. Be wary of cheap-looking ones.  Buy cheap, but with Oomph. 

Sets of Earings, Necklaces & Bracelets-   Unless you're the Queen of England, and they are real jewels.  Never wear them in one go!  Take a hold of yourself, dear.   Isa-isa lang! :)

If you're wearing dangling earings, leave your shoulders bare.  So people's eyes can focus on those fabulous earings!  Your admirers have only two eyes each,   give them a breather!  It goes the other way around (outlandish necklace, stud earings, plain dress.)

Clothers with Imbedded Accents - some clothes are already embellished.  Let them be. Refrain from adding acessories  that will further complicate things.   Less is More! 

Make-up- I wish I am an expert on make-up but I am not. I just follow good taste.  I  follow the same rule, Less is more.   Especially for everyday wear, no need to pile on the eyeshadows.  Again, what is the main focus?  Is it the gorgeous new lipstick or the smokey eyes?   

Store up on Classics.

Need I say more?  Black, dark blue jeans, plain white/black shirts, little black dresses, black skirts. White Polo shirt. These are the ones that you can wear everyday, without people noticing you're wearing the same thing over and over again.  Put on a different accessories, layer and you look different altogether.

Same things with bags.  Go for Classics. We cannot buy all the nice latest IT bag.  It's so hard to keep up!  Invest in ONE great piece, instead of buying many but cheap ones.  (Got this from Nina Garcia).

Easy on the Trend.

Colored denims, Harem Pants are fun and quirky but how long will the trend last?  If you buy them, cheaply, go ahead.  Otherwise,  save your money for something else more lasting, and could go a long, long way..

Don't be afraid to try something, you don't normally do.

If you're the t-shirt and jeans type of person, wouldn't it be fun, showing up one day in a nice dress or skirt?  If you normally shy away from make-up,  how about trying on the new BB cream fad?  You will never know, you might like it!

Dress for yourself, second for others.

I read somewhere that, Women dress for each other.  Otherwise, if we dress for Men, we can just go around naked. :)   But no matter what, you must do it to have a little fun.  Gain confidence and put the twinkle in your eye.  :)

Style is Effortless.

Above everything is, it should all look Effortless.   Nag effort, before di mukhang nag-effort! :)

That's about it.... Gosh, I feel like this is written by a Gay person :)   Tim Gunn!


Happy Fifteenth Nu Skin Philippines!

My favorite personal care company, Nu Skin Enterprises Philippines celebrated a milestone this year, their 15th year anniversary!

Could 15 years go by so fast?  Nu Skin Enterprises opened in 1998, with offices at 15th Floor, Octagon Building, Ortigas Center, Pasig City.   They distribute the  most technologically advance products in anti-aging.   Nu Skin Enterprises is from Provo, Utah.  Philippines is their 26th (?) market.

Nu Skin have showcases in Makati, Alabang,  Pampanga, Cebu and Davao City.  These showcases and galleries may not be familiar to you, because Nu Skin products are largely brought to the public by their able network of individual distributors.

These are the men and women who best represent the products and the amazing business opportunity, that continue to improve lives of people.


The amazing thing about Nu Skin as a company, they do not rest on their laurels.  They continue to innovate on their product offerings.  I was introduced to Nu Skin by my cousin, when she demonstrated the non-surgical facelift.   My face was literally stretched with its fine albumin-based powder and liquid activator.   After a few minutes of looking like a dried-old prune,  I rinsed out to a  fresh, zero-wrinkled me!  I was sold, and I keep hunting for Nu Skin products, even if my cousin moved to Canada for good.

Right now, the company’s premier anti-aging line that completely  revolutionizes  skin care is the Ageloc Tranformation.  I wrote about it here.  SHOW ME AGELOC

As Nu Skin celebrates it’s 15th year, we not only give tribute to it’s amazing product but more importantly, to these game-changing network of Philippine distributors who continue to make a difference to people’s lives and continue to demonstrate how excellent networking should be done.

Most of Nu Skin distributors, even prior to even joining Nu Skin, are professionals, corporate mavens and businesspersons who are successful in their own fields.  They believe in the unique Nu Skin opportunity, as a great vehicle to provide time and financial freedom.   Every Nu Skin distributor has a life-changing story to tell.

As Nu Skin enters a new phase of  growth, with their ambitious goal of being a 1 Billion company in the Philippines, we wish them all the best and no doubt, Nu Skin Pilipinas, Sama-sama, Kayang-kaya!
