Care for Your Skin

I know I haven't posted in a while, it's because something exciting is coming up soon!  I will keep you posted about this and I do hope you will continue to support me in this new endeavor of mine :) In the meantime, I would like to share with you a not-so-new-discovery of mine:

For more than 260 years, the first thermal spring facility in Avène continues to treat patients with atopic dermatities, eczema, psoriasis and burns. Now, in the 21st century, it has expanded its facility via skin caring products that have been made available worldwide.

Two product lines that my family loves are the sun care and whitening ranges. I know, opposite collections, right? But for us, Filipinos, who love the sand and the sun; we need the best sun care protection to keep our skin cancer-free and looking young. We don't want our skin to age faster with wrinkled skin caused by sun exposure, don't you agree? As complementary to this sun care line, the whitening line that will help us even out our sun spots, blemishes and scars.

Avene SPF50 Emulsion 50mL - PhP1350
Laboratoires Dermatologiques Avène has long had their sun care line, but they recently added The SunSitive protection® FORMULA INNOVATION, which combines high-performance and high-tolerance photo-protective complex with a powerful anti-oxidant for cellular protection and Avène Thermal Spring Water for its soothing qualities. All 100% photostable, they are all paraben-free, and best of all, highly water resistant. Try their Very High Protection Emulsion 50+ and Very High Protection Mineral Cream 50+, both are very light in texture and can blend well on to our skin.

To support your sun care line (more so during the off-summer season), why don't you try Avène's whitening range? The line boasts of myrtle extract that prevents melanin production and regulates skin pigmentation. It also has Ascorbyl Glucoside, otherwise known as Vitamin C, that controls the source of skin pigmentation. It's also known to repair skin cells that are damaged by ultraviolet rays. Frequent usage reduces cell damage and promotes collagen synthesis to give firmer skin. Now, that's double duty action - whitens and firms!!!

Now, it might be a bit confusing which variant to use so here are some tips:
Avène Sensitive White Whitening Lotion is best for all skin types.
Avène Sensitive White Fluid is for normal to combination skin types, and is recommended to treat discoloration and best used to prevent brown spots from forming.
Avène Sensitive White Cream is for those with dry skin, which has she butter for extra hydration.
Avène Sensitive White Whitening Essense is a serum that's perfect for skin with dark and age spots. It gives a matte finish that's great for day wear.

And the best news? Selected products of Avène are at special half-price offers, for a limited time only. So, visit selected Mercury Drug outlets soon to get good deals from one of the best skin care brands.

Can't Wait for Tiesto

This is so a last minute decision - good thing, we were still able to get tickets to the Tiesto show this Thursday. I hope to see you there also, as we enjoy his music mixes that brings back the late '90s and early 2000s :D

For a quick refresher, read on to find out more about DJ Tiesto,and why we can't wait for Thursday ;)

“Beautiful World”, “Sweet Things”, “Elements of Life”, “I Will Be Here”, “Silence”, “Work Hard Play Hard” and “We Own the Night”. These are just some of the world-smash hits created by Grammy Nominee, legendary Dutch musician and record producer of Electronic Dance Music, and world – renowned professional DJ, Tiesto.


Tijs Michiel Verwest, more popularly known as Tiesto, began his DJ career by playing mostly New Beat and House Music in small clubs in his hometown in Breda, Netherlands. Tiesto then rose to popularity in the early 2000s after his performance at the Live at Innercity: Amsterdam RAI party, and the release of his first solo album entitled In My Memory. Since then, the Dutch musician has been making and producing award-winning Electronic Dance Music (EDM) hits and albums, holding concert tours and parties all over the world, and receiving countless recognition for his music. One of Tiesto’s albums, Elements of Life, took the number one spot on the Dutch album chart and on Billboard Top Electronic Albums in the US, and was awarded Best Electronic Dance Album in 2008. One of Tiesto’s most notable performances, on the other hand, was at the opening ceremony of the Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece, making him the very first DJ to play live on stage at an Olympic event. The legendary EDM record producer was also the very first DJ to rank #1 in the Top 100 DJs list by DJ Magazine for 3 consecutive years. He also received the Best International DJ award in 2008 at the DJ Awards, and earned other titles such as The #1 DJ of 2008 and The Best DJ of All Time, both given by Mixmag magazine; The 40th Greatest Dutch Citizen of All Time and Officer of the Order of Orange – Nassau by the Dutch Royalty in 2003; and International Dance4Life Ambassador in 2006.

With a well-proven track record, there’s no doubt that Tiesto is one of most sought-after EDM DJs in the world. In fact, in the Philippines alone, Tiesto has played his tracks in front of his fans – the country’s hottest clubbers, EDM enthusiasts and personalities in two of the biggest and hippest dance arenas last 2008 and 2009. On October 3, 2013, Tiesto will be coming back to Manila for his very first concert party at the Big Dome as World Wide Womb, Ovation Productions, Driven Manila, and Republiq present Tiesto Live in Manila, with the fastest-rising, most exciting female Australian DJ, Tigerlily as special guest.

I have Moved

So much has happened in the past four months that I was on hiatus—a lot is on my plate now.  All the more with the birth of another baby boy in the Cheng family :)  So I've decided to move and keep just one blog.

Busy, Busy, Busy :o

Hello everyone,
So sorry that I have been so quiet for the past month. So many things happened. Plus, my laptop and camera "drowned." Just got my camera back, but still waiting for parts for my laptop. I just realized that there must be something with me and water this year, since it's the year of the water dragon AND I am carrying a baby water dragon ;)

I am figuratively drowning in so much work, as we're preparing for the opening of FOREVER 21 at The Block, at SM City North EDSA. Watch out for more updates next week ;) *hint hint* Please bear with me as I will try to be back online in a week. Thank you :D
