Double D is for …

Dissertation DefenseDr. Dispo * BiG DayDecember 8 ~ Save the Date!

After I passed my presentation with full faculty on Veterans’ Day, I followed my Bestie Evie‘s advice:

Take a Me QT Day.

While I still worked on revising my paper, I also set aside Spa Time this past weekend!

Facial Mask

Based on Fleur De Force‘s The Glam Guide, I used these ingredients for *acne  and **dark spots:

Manicure

Then I treated myself to an at-home mani with the following gift sets:

and polished my finger nails with my own lacquers:

'Tis the Season for Red & Plaid

O•P•I Got the Blues for Red & Sally Hansen 18K Gold Hardener + Revlon Orchid & Silver Screen + Sally Hansen i ♥ Nail Art Striper in black

My top tip to achieving a lasting nail paint job:

Run freshly coated nails in cold water and dodge hot water!

  • Cold water seals in moisture, while hot water repels and drys it out
  • If I hand wash dishes, I wear special gloves
  • I also wear gloves during hands-on activity

Massage

My good †Christian† friend and fellow prayer warrior, Lisa, came through again, introducing me

Thank GOD for these special gifts of blessings and wonderful company!

We can’t go wrong with positive reinforcement …

Childhood Examples

Lately, rewarding myself helps ease the toughness of a rigorous project!

Adult Examples

Great timing since I just progressed onto my next series!

Regardless of the season, we must treat our skin, hair and nails as we would our finest silk and favorite fabrics ~ with the best care!

One of my main go to basics: Eucerin Aquaphor (petroleum-based ointment)

Eucerin Aquaphor

I dig the *NEW* Eucerin Aquaphor “no-touch” applicator ~ with user-friendly sponge surface & plastic cap (sometimes packaging works if it’s functional)

Now here’s one of my newbies: L’Oréal® Nutri-Gloss Gylco-Silk

L'oréal Blake Lively

You too can score a *FREE* sample of L’Oréal® Advanced HairCare here! Choose among different selections depending on your hair type & needs ~ endorsed by celebrities (such as Ryan Reynolds wifey Blake Lively)

Beauty Tuesday: Steel Butterfly Stilettos

Here’s a hint of what I’ll be this Halloween

Filipiniana Asia

Throwback: My *Philippine Flag* Mestiza Gown complete with Butterfly Sleeves for the Filipinana Gala that I covered (press and photo) back in 2009 ~ Asia the #PhotoBombDotCom before Annie‘s birth ♥Annie-versary♥

Clue: She’s known as the Steel Butterfly who scared off the Beatles who flew far from the Philippines never ever to return.

Boo Dog

Meet BOO ~ who’ll play the Pinoy Pomeranian pup this weekend (since the P.I. First Lady had a canine as her sidekick)

After winning the costume contest these past couple of years, will I come back for a 3-peat, suggested my boy *USMC* Kyle with a smile?

IMG_6007

Just a few of my favorite all-season shoes … Love my Brett Favre photobomb?

While what was on my head (the crow as Lone Ranger‘s Tonto in 2013 & my beehive gone live in 2014) did the trick ~ or treat? ~ will this year’s fate be helped with what I wear on my feet?

IMG_6009

I was choosing between my silver {from O’Shoes} or gold skinny heels to boost my height & compliment my festive sequins

Speaking of stilettos, this Muse of Manila who I’ll portray this Saturday was known to have 3K pairs of shoes!

IMG_6010

My skinny heels wouldn’t be complete without these Solemates High Heeler® ~ so I won’t stay stuck in the mud or other stilleto-unfriendly surfaces!

Just to be on the safe side, I wouldn’t endorse wearing heels all day everyday ~ more in moderation … and always have a back-up pair of flats!

Who would’ve thought that the advice offered by Belinda Selene in this month’s Seventeen magazine would actually help yours truly (who’s double the title age)?

Indeed, this tip is relevant to ~ not only social media trendsetters with followers, but also ~ anyone who has an audience ~ in particular:

Bottom Line: Public Speaking revolves around our Audience, just as Writing revolves around our Readers!
