#iAmFlawless

“charleneajose”

I’ve always been a low maintenance girl, and was only until recently that I got actively involved in my skin care routine. I get my regular facials from Flawless, and it was a pleasant surprise to get an invitation from them to an exclusive gathering they hosted some weeks ago. Let me take you through what happened in photos and captions!

The event started really early in the morning (spell 9AM!) and even though I don’t usually eat breakfast, this buffet table was already enough to convince me to do so!

We were also treated to another table full of Novexpert products to check out and try. These are all non-toxic, 100% biodegradable and certified 100% hypoallergenic. So much so that you can even eat them! (I think the buffet table already had that problem covered though! Hehe!)

Mother Becky Divine Lee also dropped by to share her stories about growing up and how important it was to start on skin care routines while still young. She told a lot of anecdotes but the one that really stuck with me was when she said that there was a higher possibility of her forgetting to put on a bra than forgetting to apply sunscreen! Love it, Mother!

Maxene Magalona also came in to share some of her own stories as well. Above is a photo of some of the attendees who won Cell Booster Packs from the raffle!

Anxieties and my Pounding Heart

“charleneajose”

There are times when I think that I’ve been blogging for so long that I subconsciously try to spice things up by putting down typed content that is entirely unrelated to the images posted. That being said, let me tell you about this one time where I got forced (for lack of a better term!) to traverse a way I am not familiar with whatsoever using public transportation in order to bypass probably the worst traffic situation I’ve ever witnessed in my lifetime AKA the one truck lane policy by the MMDA. 

When Papa dropped me off someplace after his errands (that was the day I finally understood what oil change meant. Forgive me. I do not know a thing about cars) I was half listening to his instructions because the other half of my attention was given to listen to my pounding heart (and in effect, try to calm myself down so that it would beat in a normal rhythm, which sadly, I failed at miserably) I have always been very adventurous, mind you, and I’m game for pretty much anything - except when that anything involves me, a person who sucks with directions, going to an unknown place, alone, informed, but alone. It’s kind of an exaggeration (because I did get to my destination safe, and in one piece, and an hour early compared to the four hours I would have suffered in if I chose to take the NLEX!) but those events transform me into an anxiety producing factory, and although sometimes illogical, it’s part of who I am.

And truth be told, I honestly think we all need to be illogical sometimes, or at least, know enough to realize when we are. Because if not, then how could we see distinguish between the times when we make sense, and those where we live and breath pure nonsense?
