Missing the flavors of summer? Go recreate your fun-filled adventures with the new Starbucks Frappuccino® flavors – Mango Fruit Jelly Yogurt and Strawberry Fruit Jelly Yogurt as it drops on July 26, Tuesday!

“The all new Mango Fruit Jelly Yogurt and Strawberry Fruit Jelly Yogurt Frappuccino® Blended Beverages are a delightful combination of fruity taste in a sweet jelly, layered with the smooth texture of yogurt. Reminiscent of a creamy parfait, these Frappuccino® Blended Beverages are inspired by our customers’ love of sweet fruit, making them the ideal beverage to lighten up one’s day,” said Keith Cole, head for marketing at Starbucks Philippines.

5-Step Liese Bubble Hair Color Tutorial + Review

Sunday, July 17, 2016

Going back to being an advertising student, my classmates in 2nd year college were so creative back then when it comes to DIY-ing their hair color. I didn't have the guts of doing the same thing because I find the coloring process tedious plus I'm afraid that I might cause further damage to my hair. Throughout these years, I've relied on hair salons in terms of taking care of my hair - whether for hair treatments or hair dyeing.

But now, I finally gave in the temptation as I do my first ever DIY hair color tutorial. Yay! Read below as I give a step-by-step process on how I colored my hair using Liese Creamy Bubble Color!

Beauty Review: Farmstay Cosmetics Red Ginseng Pure Cleansing Foam

Saturday, July 9, 2016

Farmstay Cosmetics has been generous in giving out sample products for me to try on. Previously, I was able to review their Farmstay Oil-Free UV Defence Sun Cream here. Tbh, I was happy with the this underrated product that's why I decided to choose three of their products and give it a review here again on the blog.

Patty Villegas - The Lifestyle Wanderer - Farmstay Cosmetics - Red Ginseng Pure Cleansing Foam - Beauty - Review -8

Farmstay Cosmetics products to review soon!

First off, I’ll be starting with my Farmstay Cosmetics Red Ginseng Pure Cleansing Foam review.

Before giving a proper review of the product, let’s talk about its main ingredient first: Red Ginseng. It’s a no brainer for Red Ginseng to become a main ingredient on a Korean product because it is indigenous to the said country.

Ginseng, a common health benefiting substance, has been adopted for its natural medicinal abilities. Also, it has valuable properties that can be harnessed as an important skin-care ingredient. (Particularly in anti-aging products)

*Several medical studies have shown its effectiveness in fighting wrinkles due to ginseng’s ability to boost skin-firming collagen. The herb also acts as a whitener, giving the skin a brighter and more youthful appearance.

The secret is out. Beauty has become the new currency to success. And with success comes great responsibility.

Looking the part and living the part of a successful career woman consistently is the key to staying on top. Thus, it is important to bring out and maintain your beauty.

Beauty, nowadays, is considered a currency—it is an asset that every working woman should have.  Erika, for one, knows what this means.  Fresh out of college, she landed a job as an account manager at an advertising agency in Makati.

“I really had to spend and invest so I would look good and presentable on a daily basis,” Erika shares.  She also felt the need to reward herself for working so hard.  Erika credits her regular visits to her dermatologist—for facials and other beautifying treatments—for having a good and healthy skin and staying beautiful. 

For Erika, taking care of herself was one of the reasons why she became successful in her field today. “I feel beautiful inside and out, and it shows in everything I do,” she states.  Many corporate executives are like Erika who value beauty for what it brings into the equation. 

#BeautyIsPower is the current advocacy of the Philippine Dermatological Society (PDS).  PDS is the only specialty society for dermatology which is duly accredited and recognized by the Philippine College of Physicians (PCP) and the Philippine Medical Association (PMA) making them Real Experts in Beauty.

Being the Real Experts on the latest, state-of-the-art, and popular treatment modalities to enhance beauty augmented by laser and other dermatocosmetic procedures, PDS Dermatologists can make you even more beautiful and thus, stand out among others.   

PDS’ ongoing campaign to create awareness on the importance of maintaining good skin especially among executives and entrepreneurs is one way of empowering women.

At the end of the day, beauty is a currency that you should value.  It defines you and it can pave the way to a successful and meaningful life.

Sweet and Chocolatey Starbucks Frappuccino® + Cookie Straw treat on July 4!

This is not a drill! Coming July 4 - 10, one of Starbucks signature Coffee Frappucino® will be available in stores with an exciting twist! 

The regular Mocha Frappucino® has a new treatment in terms of the added java chips for a chocolatey crunch. Called the Mocha Ribbon Chip Frappucino Blended Beverage, the Mocha sauce is also lined in the cup before pouring the Coffee Frappucino® for a sweet balancing flavor. This beverage is finished with chocolate whipped cream, aromatic Turkish coffee grind and a cookie straw. Yes, a COOKIE STRAW! <3 

Instead of sipping the Frappucino with Starbuck's signature green straw, Starbucks fanatics now have an option to use a rolled sweet wafer biscuit lined with rich chocolate ganache. The cookie straw is light and crispy with a slightly toasted, sweet wafer and chocolate flavor. The Frappucino cookie straw will retail separately starting July 11 for Php 30.

The Mocha Ribbon Chip Frappucino Blended Beverage will retail for Php 185 (Tall), Php 195 (Grande) and Php 205 (Venti).

Who will be present at Starbucks this coming July 4? I am! :)
