Protect yourself from the wind

I need not go to Chicago to have my hair blown by the wind. Where I am right now is enough for me to experience the wind. It has always been like this in the Philippines when the snow from other parts of the world starts to melt and the Northeast monsoon gushes towards the Southeast. If I could no longer bear to shower directly from the shower head, it is already a sign that I should stock up on products with moisturizers and thick clothes to keep me warm and moisturized 24/7.

A lip balm to lock in moisture thus preventing chapped lips.
Burt's Bees nourishing lip balm, $2.99 at Small Flower.

If you look pale without lipstick, here is Lip Fusion  Balm by Fusion Beauty. It will give your lips color and then moisturize it up to 6,000% if you use it continuously for 4 weeks. That's a lot of moisture! Get this at for $22.

The face needs as much moisturizing as the lips. Try this Sephora instant moisturizer, $20 at Sephora. This has HydroSenn+ that not only moisturizes the skin but also prevents appearance of future signs of aging.

Never leave the house without putting on lotion. Nothing beats Jergens lotion in moisturizing the skin. Get it at your favorite drugstores. It is $5.49 in Target.

Keep moisturized and at the same time smelling fresh for hours with this Victoria's Secret Sensuous Escape body lotion with cocoa butter. It deeply moisturizes and nourishes the skin with its Vitamin C and E. Get this for $9.

Cozy up in a cashmere sweater. This A. P. C. sweater will do the trick, $355 at Net-A-Porter.

A biker jacket will also keep you warm. This Walter hooded leather jacket is on sale at The Out Net for $196.50 previously $655.

Juicy Couture ruffled chiffon jersey scarf, $68 at Zappos Couture. Scarves a great accessory during cold and windy days.

You have got to learn from the Middle Easterners to wear a Bedouin scarf. It is their armor against the windy desert. This All Saints Bedouin scarf in beach coral is just perfect, get this for $90.

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.
To dream of cleaning, according to Dream Moods, implies you are overcoming major obstacles in life. You are moving ahead toward a new stage in your life.
To see a building in a dream is to see the self. How high you are in the building represents your …

Random Clicks: Oyster Forest Life Resort

I have discovered another place where you can relax and enjoy the long weekend this October... Oyster Forest Life Resort along Sta. Rosa Road, Brgy. Langka, Silang, Cavite. If you are travelling from Tagaytay City, turn left when you see Tagaytay Econo Hotel. It is about 5 to 10 minutes away from the intersection. The resort is actually owned by Oyster Plaza Hotel in Paranaque.
The resort's theme is very Filipino. Bamboo cottages surround the pool area so you feel like you are just lounging in your own backyard without the hustle and bustle of the busy streets and stressful workload. They have a restaurant so you don't have to worry where to buy food when you get hungry. They also have a free WiFi connection so that you can update your Facebook or Twitter accounts for your friends to see how good of a time you are having.

Movie Review: Kita Kita (I See You)

They say "Love is blind", while others say "the lovers are". Whichever you believe in, one thing is for sure, love comes in the most unexpected way. Kita Kita (I See You) is not the typical romantic comedy film you see regularly in theaters. Lea (Alessandra de Rossi) and Tonyo (Empoy Marquez) are the main characters of the movie--they are the most unconventional pair but I was surprised by their chemistry. Their acting was so unbelievable that they made me believe everything is real. 
I laughed and cried. It made me think. It made me see what the eyes can't.
