The ingredients are well combined to create a good hair product, the aloe scent is not too strong for me and  there's a satisfaction on my first use. A smooth-feel on my hair as I work on the lather. A very very little dryness after rinsing maybe because I have a rebonded hair type and so I need to apply a conditioner.

What to love?
♥ Organic. No Harmful Chemicals.
♥ Scent. For me it has a natural scent. Not too strong. Just as fresh as an aloe vera.
♥ All products has expiration dates stamped.
♥ Value for money. Not expensive compare to other Organic products I've seen.
♥ You can buy it online(on their official website) and they will deliver it right at your doorstep.

Hotel Review: Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila

Luxury room
As stated on the website: Rooms feature king or twin beds, private balconies with bay or city views, broadband internet access, coffee/tea making facilities, work desk, in-room safe, 32-inch cable TV, pay movies and minibar. Rollaway bed is permitted.
• A spacious bathroom with rain shower
• Sofitel’s signature MyBed
• The room measures 42 square meters

Luxury room. Not that big or spacious. I feel that their room rates are too pricey.
Room rate range from Php 8,000 - 11,000(with lounge access or other packages inclusion)
 Balcony (view from balcony). We stayed at the 7th floor, not sure of which wing we are at but facing SM Mall of Asia and a glimpse of Manila Bay from the right.

 Bed. We are supposed to have a King size bed, but due to unavailability we got
2 single beds joined together. The bed and pillows are too fluffy for me.
You could call in to change your pillows but I did not bother to request anyway.

  Toilet/Restroom/Shower/Toiletries. No bidet. No bath tub. Shower rain type and hand shower. Enough supply of  (bath, face, hand) Towels + 2 bath robes + 2 slippers.  (Les Notes de Lanvin products) 2 hand soaps, 1 lotion, 1 shampoo, 1 conditioner, 1 body wash. Shower caps, sewing kit, buds, cotton pads.(We only got 1set of toothbrush and toothpaste? Seriously for a couple? LOLs) plus 2 complimentary bottled water.

 Mini Bar/Refrigerator. Chips, Liqour, Sodas, Chocolates, etc available but has a price tag on it. Complimentary tea and coffee available.
Outdoor view. The swimming pool is inviting. Nice landscape especially the view of Manila Bay.

Breakfast Buffet. They have a lot to offer. American, Chinese, French, Japanese, Filipino, Indian, I can't remember what else I'm missing. There's a separate room for cheese and cold cuts. It was great. Everything is a must try. Why not when it's free + it's a buffet c'mon!

The location is pretty good since it is a few kilometers away from the busy streets, main roads or highways. The swimming pool, golf and sunset bar has the perfect view of Manila Bay. This hotel offers an excellent service and accommodating staff but it's the room that is lacking. I think it's quiet small for the price. Overall it was a good experience.

What to love?
♥ Swimming pool. View of Manila Bay. Well maintained facilities.
♥ Excellent service. Accommodating staff.
♥ Spiral Buffet. Food. Wide range of food choices.
♥ Location.

Sharing: One Day Walk without Shoes

photo credit to Toms Philippines Facebook page

This is an annual event by TOMS where we take off our shoes to raise global awareness for children's health and education. (

You too can make a difference. Feel free to join in this once a year event. No registration fee. All you need is your barefoot. For more info, visit TOMS Philippines Facebook page.

I took a walk yesterday together with the Hanson fans I've met online. They have been supporting this event for 4 years and this was my 2nd time to join them. It is just another charitable act that does not require you to pay or perform or what, but just walk barefoot. Who doesn't want to spread awareness, make a difference by just walking without a shoes?

This 4th event was held at SM Aura Skypark. The assembly starts at the Sky Park, walk down to the ground level by stairs and go back up to the SkyPark.  It is a free event for all. Feel free to register when you get a chance to see it happening around. Don't worry, free bottled waters and wet wipes are available after the walk. See you next time!

This is about More Than Shoes
Children lacking access to education and good health struggle to break the poverty cycle for themselves, their families and their communities.

With the complex issues surrounding poverty, there is not one solution, but many working together. We believe that shoes play an important role in helping keep children healthy, educated and moving toward opportunities for a better future.
