Althea Fever begins in Philippines


Althea Korea is a well-known K-Beauty shopping site that ships internationally from Korea to Malaysia, Singapore and finally here in the Philippines. Housed with popular K-Beauty brands such as Banila Co., Innisfree, Laneige, Tony Moly, Etude House, it also carries great products from Korea that we have never heard, see or use before. Guaranteed that all products are 100% authentic and sold at the best price.

Christmas last year, I was invited to be one of  Althea Korea's beta tester and was given 2000 credits equivalent to Php2000. That was awesome, right? Even more awesome when the site was up last month. It even took me 3 days to finally decide which one to add to cart. Yes, because there are so many great products I would love to use. The transaction was smooth and navigating from one product to another was even quicker.

Althea is having a grand opening promotion such as Buy 1 Take 1, huge discounts, as well free shipping on orders Php999 above and much more for the whole launching month. Free store credits of Php300 will also be given for every new sign up. Crazy enough, right? Not only that, shipping only takes 6 to 8 days all the way from Korea to your doorsteps. You will also be able to track your package online, but rest assured that Althea is providing a safe delivery.

Here's what I got:
1. Tony Moly Kiss Lover Lip Master - Php440
2. It's Skin Power 10 Formula VC Effect - Php390
3. Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Cream - Php510
4. Holika Holika 1 Sec Finish Browcara - Php448
5. Etude House Bling Bling Eyestick - Php190

I haven't tried these products that I got but I grabbed the opportunity to be able to try them. These came packaged in a beauty box known as 'pink box'.

If you're a K-beauty lover too, then Althea is perfect for you.

Say Goodbye to Your Old Habits of Cleaning Your Face

Managing skin is a tough job, indeed. And having a bad facial skin sometimes equals to frustration. Using makeup products to cover bad skin may not be enough. I am not a makeup person, so using a concealer is always not a good idea. It might just worsen the situation of the skin. So why not say hello to a product that will definitely do wonders for our skin?
Few weeks ago, I checked SampleRoom and saw a product that looks nothing unusual that I even kept on ignoring it until I finally decided to check its details. A skin purifier? Really? That's new!

Maxi Peel Fresh and Natural Skin Purifier. A first of its kind in the skin care market that purifies the skin from external and internal contaminants delivering purified, healthy and fresh-looking skin.

How does Fresh and Natural Skin Purifier do wonders for your skin?
It has MicroPurifiers, a unique blend of safe and potent ingredients that effectively moves beyond the skin's surface, down through the skin layers to purify skin from unwanted contaminants.
* Clears skin from blemishes
* Effectively loosens the build-up of skin contaminants
* Keeps facial pores unclogged and tight
* Visibly evens out and brightens skin complexion
* Fortifies cells from free radicals encouraging growth of fresh-looking skin
* Suppresses melanin production that causes darkening

How to use:
1. Start with a freshly washed face.
2. Moisten a cotton ball with a few drops of Fresh and Natural Skin Purifier.
3. Smooth gently all over the face twice a day, in the morning and before bedtime.
4. Don't forget to apply sunscreen and moisturizer.

My take:
I actually have waited five days before writing this, although it says the result will be visible in a week but five days may be enough. I am using this product as directed -  in the morning and before bedtime. Yes, it lessens dark spots on my face and tightens the skin. Unclogged pores? Maybe! This is with alcohol content but did not dry my skin. Of course, I always make sure to apply moisturizer. I have a sensitive skin and I'm glad I have no allergic reactions while using this product. I tried Maxi Peel's astringent before but because it visibly peels off the skin, I stopped. Good thing this Skin Purifier does not. As much as I love how beneficial this is for me, the strong smell is really a big NO. The first used made me think that this is even stronger than the astringent. The smell last for about an hour which kinda irritating. Hoping to get used to its smell though as I want to include this in my daily skincare routine.  4.5/5

Have you tried this Skin Purifier?


It is no denying that I'm obsessed with any timepiece and the love I have for them can never be replaced by any other accessories, except of course with a diamond ring. Kidding, though! When a wooden watch made a boom, I was drooling to get one for myself. Hence, Jord.
Jord, according to wordsense dictionary, means earth, which makes this timepiece closer to nature. Its focused is on creating a hand-crafted watches made of 100% natural wood. Rosewood, ebony, purpleheart and maple to name a few. In this post, I'll be featuring a Fieldcrest Series in maple.
"We grew up on tree-lined streets with slow driving cars, and plenty of friends to play on the pavement with. No matter the season, the weather was always perfect and the sun always went down too soon. Life is good. Life is simple. No need for the bells and whistles. Just like our Fieldcrest Series. Let the blond wood of the maple be a constant reminder of those warm and sunny days."

I wasn't surprised that this arrived in a wooden box but I'm amazed to know that the box is made of the same wood. It is also unbelievable that this watch is super light and comfortable to wear. This features a scratch-resistant mineral glass and deployment buckle with push buttons. This is also splash-proof but should not be submerged in water (3ATM).
I love Jord's craftsmanship, their attention to detail is superb. I'm also impressed with its branding, look at the 'J' on the watch's crown and the 'JORD' on the wooden band. And because this is unique and stylish, I'm pretty sure this can be worn with any outfits you want to pull off, whether it's dressy or casual.
Jord offers free shipping worldwide. I didn't receive this on the date as expected though but trust me, this timepiece is worth every penny! I actually gave the same watch to my mom last Christmas. Since this comes with a box, gifting is easier.

Do you already own a Jord watch? Do you love it as much as I do?

Designing a Bedroom that Works with Any Fashion Fanatic

Fashion fanatics have to sleep sometimes.  All that clothes shopping and catwalk tracking can get exhausting, so a place to relax, unwind and get some rest is priority number one.

What elements go into a fashion fan's bedroom design? The key thing to remember is that it has to be stylish.

Walk-in wonder
There will be a lot of clothing and accessories to marshal in any sartorial superfan's boudoir, so the first thing to go into the design is storage. Precious and treasured garments need careful hanging and a walk-in closet is often the best solution. Large walk-in closets are spacious enough to house all your clothes in a well-ordered way. Make it easy to locate items by installing lighting that softly illuminates the space without being overpowering.

A large bedroom can accommodate a walk-in closet by annexing an area and fitting it out with shelves, storage, drawers and rails. Clothes are relatively compact, but accessories such as handbags, shoes and boots will eat space, so include provision for this in the design. If you don't have the funds or space for any of that, consider hanging a drape across an alcove or corner of the bedroom to keep your precious things safely stowed.

Light touch
Light levels in your bedroom need to be tightly controlled. There will be times when you want to welcome in the sunshine so you can scrutinize your new designer purchase, other occasions call for privacy when trying on outfits – regulate the light flow into your bedroom with stylish window shutters. Their streamlined silhouette and elegant lines will complement any bedroom décor, as well as being practical and useful for stopping glare from fading clothes and furnishings.

Bed basics
You’ll need your beauty sleep, so kit out your bed with the finest linens you can afford. Take inspiration from your favorite designers and go for all-out luxury. Whether it's the traditional flavors of Ralph Lauren, the eccentric flair of Vivienne Westwood or the full-throttled glamor of Chanel or Dior, make sure you are sleeping with the best.

Beds can be wonderful storage solutions, so if you are short on places to stow your vast wardrobe, consider an Ottoman storage bed with integral drawers.

Zone out
A fashionista's bedroom works well when divided into zones. Make separate areas for dressing, relaxing, applying make-up and doing your hair. Don't go overboard on the mirrors because too many can become jarring – plan for one full-length looking glass for checking your outfit and one make-up mirror with good lighting to ensure a flawless, fabulous face.

Walls of style
Decorate the walls of your bedroom with prints of sketches by famous designers, iconic dresses or models. Do you have a favorite handbag, ball gown or pair of shoes on your wish list? Fix inspirational fashion cues on the walls to keep you focused on what you do best: fanatically follow fashion!

A bedroom that celebrates a passion for fashion, couture, and style is always going to be a personal labor of love, but when you get the basics right, all the pretty individual touches will follow as if by magic.
