Watsons Wonderful Hair Heroes: For Your Mane Holiday Events

Let’s talk about hair today. I don’t know if it’s just me or the weather lately hasn’t been wonderful as it’s always hot around lunch time to mid-afternoon, then it begins to feel a lil’ chilly come evening, then ends with a downpour later on in the evening. Yikes! These mega erratic changes in the weather are the perfect recipe for hair damage aka dryness and brittleness. (Currently a victim here!)

I’ve got upcoming Christmas parties and I don’t want to come sporting bad hair so that means I have to step-up my hair care routine for the holidays-this means I have to condition and treat my mane frequently more than ever until the weather (and my schedule) normalizes, and this box came at the nick of time!

I recently received this huge package from Watsons called the Wonderful Hair Heroes Beauty Box. Before I proceed with the unboxing, I just want to say that this box is not for sale unlike the previous version, but the products inside can be purchased individually at Watsons!

So, let’s unbox this now? I’ll show you the products included in the Wonderful Hair Heroes line-up-there are a couple of new brands too so click READ MORE now and take a look!

FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: 10 Restaurants to try on your Anniversary (Or Any Special Event)

I'm now nearing the last two weeks of my cheat meal ban. To share my results, I've lost three pounds even without exercising and the BF-who's my greatest critic-even noticed that I got slimmer-this is proof that fitness is dependent on 80% of what you put inside your mouth!

Anyway, I can't wait for Dec. 7, the BF and I's monthsary, to come and this FMF is so timely! Thanks, Jen for sending this!

Hi Ms. Martha! 
I follow you on Instagram and your food trips with your boyfriend are some of my favorite photos. My BF and I are foodies like you guys and I'd like to ask if you can recommend any nice restaurant to celebrate an anniversary? We're celebrating ours this coming November 30. Would appreciate your response. Thank you and more power! 

Hi Jen!

Advanced happy anniversary to you and your BF! I wish you both many years of love, laughter, and happiness. :)

Your question got me wondering: "Where will the BF and I celebrate our monthsary this coming December?" It seems like we've eaten in almost every restaurant in the metro because we're severe foodies, just like that. Heck, that right restaurant will show up when that day comes so for now, let me share with you these awesome restaurants that will make your anniversary worthwhile. Since yours is a very special event, I'm recommending premium restaurants because I believe that every anniversary is a milestone, therefore it deserves a grand celebration!

- This is one of the best places where you can celebrate your anniversary or any occasion that's important to you. This place is a restaurant-cum-museum and the best part is you'll get to dine in an old-fashioned, #LikeADonya manner. It's an experience!

- The interior of TWG is enough to make me say that this is probably one of the best places to make a special occasion even more special, plus the food is really good too! They're known for their scones and teas so don't forget to order 'em!

- This very private restaurant located in Nicanor Garcia st. is a favorite of many couples because of the rustic ambiance and authentic Italian food!

Browhaus Precision Eyeliner in Intense Black and Deep Brown Review + Swatches

Here's a review on Browhaus Precision Eyeliner in Black and Brown.

Price: P750.00/each
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in Browhaus Lucky Chinatown Mall, SM Megamall, Greenbelt 5, and Serendra


This baby made it to my October Favorites list because it's one of nicest and legit waterproof liquid eyeliners I have ever tried! Wanna know how waterproof this baby is? Well I brought it to one of my workout sessions in Elorde (the ultimate test of waterproof makeups) and surprise, surprise, IT DID NOT BUDGE ON MY SWEATY FACE! I'll muse about this product today! :)


One of Browhaus' latest additions to their exclusive eye makeup range, the Precision Eyeliner, is a waterproof liquid liner that comes in two essential shades, Black and Brown. Browhaus said that the formula of this eyeliner is non-sting and gentle, therefore safe for sensitive skin. Browhaus said that it's pretty much safe for pregnant women, but they strongly encourage mommy-to-be's to seek the doctor's advise before usage.

Olay Total Effects Pore Minimizing CC Cream Review + Swatches

Here's a review on Olay Pore Minimizing CC Cream Review.

Price: P999.00 (50g); P499.00 (20g)
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in leading department stores and drugstores


Lately, a close Beauty Blogger colleague commended my skin and my makeup-that made me smile because that comment was proof that my religious skin care is finally paying off, plus it's nice to get a positive comment on your makeup from a makeup artist. :D She then asked what foundation I'm using and I told her that I'm just wearing CC Cream-she was surprised because she thought I had full coverage on!

So which CC Cream was I using? Olay Total Effects Pore Minimizing CC Cream-this 'Blurring Tool' covers skin with a pillowy coverage that keeps enlarged pores temporarily out of sight, thus giving your skin a smoother appearance.


This product promises to color, correct, and protect skin with Broad Spectrum SPF 15-it also promises to yield an airbrushed finish and contains 7-in-1 benefits in a light, oil- free formula.

K-Palette 1 Day Magic Real Lasting Liquid Eyeliner in Super Black Review + Swatches

Here's a review on K-Palette 1 Day Magic Real Lasting Liquid Eyeliner in Black.

Price: P695.00
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in all Beauty Bar and Rustan's stores


This eyeliner is what I call one of the closest things to getting the "best of both worlds." Why? Because the new K-Palette Real Lasting Liquid Eyeliner lets you do two kinds of eyeliner looks with just one, nifty brush! I've also noticed that it got cheaper so that's another news- worthy fact!


This product still features the classic K-Palette eyeliner's well- loved waterproof and super pigmented formula, but now features a thin-thick brush that creates natural or dramatic eyeliner looks. It comes in one shade only, Super Black.


Know why this is my new favorite K-Palette liquid eyeliner after the jump!

Get Your Bling On With Benefit Bling Brow!

Maybe you've seen or even worn it all--I mean, eye makeup looks. This holiday season, maybe you're wondering: "Is there any other way to dress up my eyes?" Yep, there still is and it's Benefit's Bling Brow.

Bling Brow is a smart, easy, and glamorous alternative to dramatic eye makeup or avant garde falsies to level up your look for the holidays.

The blinds are made from real Swarovski crystals and they come in various colors to compliment your skin tone, outfit, or eye color-choose from Rose Gold, Light Pink, Pink Multicolor, Greige (Grey and Beige), Green Multi Color, Crystal, Smoked Topaz, and Light Silk.

There are three styles to choose from: Touch O' Bling for understated glamour, Over-The-Top Bling for bold and edgy gals, and Big- Time Bling for those who like it unique and standout.

Bling Brow was officially welcomed in the Philippines by the Press and Bloggers at Le Jardin in BGC. Guests were treated to free brow wax treatments and of course, Bling Brow!

So which look did I go for? Click READ MORE to find out!
