In this day and age, a lot of people hustle by juggling different work and activities in their daily lives. Some are working 2 jobs in a day, some are studying while working, some are working and sneaking in time to pursue their passion, some are handling a couple of businesses by themselves and MANY are working professionally yet are also balancing their life as a good partner and mother/father at the same time. I know it may seem a lot but if you look and ask around, you'd notice that people are always doing more than one thing and it's not bad at all. It shows how much we are capable of, as individuals, and it is admirable. So in this fast paced life, avoiding even the smallest hurdle can make a big impact in our lives.
Since I'm a girl, I can only speak in behalf women who might have experienced the same daily struggle I go through. I'm a very self conscious person. I worry when people judge me so I try to make sure I present myself well at all times, and this takes time. This means I clean up well and choose my clothes properly before I meet with people. Based on my observation, one of the wardrobe problems we often encounter that also seem to falter our confidence and affect our overall performance is when our bumps and love handles are exposed. We can't deny this because there a lot of pictures that never made the cut just because our "bilbil" or "puson" or "taba" is seen in the photo. I've heard this from women of all types and shapes.
I noticed that these bulges are more apparent when the underwear elastics are too tight because they tend to cut into your hips and cause unnecessary folds and indentations to your skin. Aside from this, the underwear outline also becomes obvious when you wear regular undies underneath those tight and light colored fabrics. I'm sure a lot of women, like me, have stayed away from wearing white slacks and white pencil skirts for this particular reason.
Avon tries to eliminate this kind of daily struggle for women by creating a set of undergarments that are seamless, light, silky and stretchable. The absence of stitches means that bra and panty lines will not be visible even when you're wearing white and skin-tight clothes. The light and airy fabric allows it to snug nicely & naturally through your body without creating creases.
I've already received a set of dark colored seamless panties from Avon before and they already became an instant favorite! This body illusion collection is even better because they're light, silky and smooth that it feels like you're wearing NOTHING underneath. It also comes in skin-toned colors to make it more invisible to any color and type of fabric.
Look how it's almost invisible even under sheer fabric.
P.S. This was even taken with the flash on. :)
But, it's invisibility is not it's only strength because it's designed for utmost comfort too. So not only is it out of sight, it's also out of mind! I fell in love with the bra at first strap. It's the first time I've worn a bra that's ultra light with such velvety smooth straps that you can barely feel it. Avon Body Illusion is one, if not the most, comfortable pair of undies I've ever owned.
You can now confidently wear whatever you want wherever and whenever because you won't have to worry about some of your typical clothing woes. Hopefully, the comfort it provides will also help you feel more at ease as you get through your day and eventually build more confidence with all the tasks and goals you get to accomplish.
Here's to more power to all the wonder women out there! :)
CHARLENE Underwire Seamless Bra (P899) and Panty (P299) is a ¾ cup bra in eyeglass silhouette with ultra soft foam cups and laser-cut edges. Available bra sizes: 32A to 40B.
SONIA Non-Wire Seamless Pull-on Bra (P899) and Panty (P299) is a pull-on bra with zero hooks to ensure seamless back and comfortable support even without the underwire. Available sizes: Small to Extra Large.

I'm not really the type of girl who pampers myself often with massages, scrubs, facials, hair spas, foot spas, manicures and pedicures, etc. It may not seem too obvious, but I'm really low maintenance. I go to the salon to get a haircut around once or twice a year. I've never done facials and body scrubs. And, I don't usually get my nails done outside because I can do it myself. Given the circumstances, you'd get an idea of how simple my life is so if you're gonna ask me what I think about my day in Ayumi, I'd describe it as HEAVENLY. I know it may sound a bit exaggerated but it did feel nice to spend half a day getting made up and being taken care of.
First, I got my lash extensions done! Initially, I wanted to try their Ange Curl Lash Extensions because this service will not only lift your real lashes but they will also put lash extensions afterwards to make your lashes look fuller. It sounds very promising, right? :) Too bad I couldn't avail that because I lost too many lashes after my last lash extension, from a different salon, that there aren't much lashes left to lift. LOL. SAD.
So, I got their 5D Lash Extensions instead.
How is it different from regular lash extensions? They attach 5 lash strands to each of your lashes. It adds so much volume to your lashes that you'd have doll-like eyes afterwards. I wasn't very comfortable at first because it looks "too much" but I started to appreciate it after 2 weeks because even though some of my lash extensions have fallen off, my lashes still looks full and filled. I love the quality of their extensions too! They're not heavy and they feel like your real ones because they use mink lashes from Japan! :)
P.S. My lash extensions survived snowboarding and the occasional strong winds in Japan.
Next, I got my nails done! There isn't much to say about this because it felt like a regular trip to the nail salon.
The only notable one about this experience is they use their own brand of ORGANIC nail polish. I asked how it's different from other polishes, they said their nail polish doesn't turn your nails yellow. Since my gel polish is still intact whilst writing this blog post, I still have to find out if it's true! Haha! As I've discussed with one my of friends, I think their gel polish service is cheaper compared to other nail salons. So if you're the type who prefers to apply gel nail polish, you might want to check them out. :)
They also offer nail arts! :)
Lastly, I got their teeth whitening service. One session lasts for about 20 minutes, but if you want to achieve brighter & whiter teeth, you might have to return for a few more sessions with them. :)
Aside from their services, there are 2 other reasons why'd I'd visit Ayumi again. One is their super cozy interior that adds to the overall relaxing experience. The second is their super friendly, bubbly and funny staff. I prepared a book and some work materials before going there, in case there's a need for me to kill time due to dull moments. But, I didn't get bored at all because I chatted and joked around with them the whole time. :)
I visited their branch in Quezon City, which is located at: Mezzanine, Victoria Towers, Timog Avenue corner Panay Avenue, Quezon City.

Tittos has been around for a while. I've been curious about it and I have also heard a lot of good reviews about the restaurant, but I never got the chance to visit it until last December. I know they say to never judge a book by its cover but my initial judgement of a restaurant is usually based on how it is presented. My logic behind this is that if they took time to make a place beautiful, they probably also took the same amount of effort on their food. Having said that, the interior of Titto's is pretty. Just like their food, the place looks like a modern hippie Mexican restaurant with its industrial looking cement walls and floor, wooden furniture and colorful tiles and decors.
The photo above shows my favorite spot. I loved the fake colorful windows. It brings so much character to your photo. :)
As for the food, my amigas and I were able to try the following:
Nachos El Gigante
This has become one of my instant favorites. It tastes light and flavorful so you wouldn't notice that you've already been eating a lot. Hindi siya nakakasawa. I was still munching on it even after all the other dishes were served.
La Lucha Salad
Veggie salad with corn, oyster mushroom and quinoa with vinaigrette.
I have never been a fan of vinaigrette because I don't like sour food. I was hesitant to try it at first because of that reason but I tried it anyway and it wasn't bad at all. It had the perfect blend of sourness and sweetness, and I like the added crunch of the oyster mushroom to give the salad a little texture.
Tapas De Chifa
Parmesan cheese bread with truffle and smoked salmon cheese filling.
I am no foodie so I don't know how to properly describe it, but it tasted uniquely good. It's one of the dishes that I saved for last, and you know what that means right? :)
Beef Barbacoa Tacos
The beef filling was not exceptional but it's good and tender.
I had a little problem with the black taco shell because it was a bit paste-y, but I think it's something they're gonna work on. :)
This one is good and everyone agreed. It was sweet, tangy and crunchy.
Their sisig tacos is one of the dishes I'll definitely re-order on my next visit.
Shrimp pizza with barbecue sauce. I think that's the best way I could describe this dish. The taste on the sweeter side so I think it would go well to the Filipino palate.
Paella De Carne
It tastes lighter and a bit more bland compared to other Paella's I've tried, but as my friend said... It gets more addictive after every bite. Hahaha. Didn't feel the same way though because by the time this sizzling plate arrived, I was already FULL. :)
You have to try their refreshing drinks. :)
From left to right: Cucumber Elderflower, Pineapple Ginger, Tittos Iced Tea :)
You can find Titto's Latin BBQ in 16 East Capitol Drive, Kapitolyo, Pasig City :)
If you're there for dinner, I suggest you go to their "secret bar" called RM16 at the back the restaurant after year meal. :))
RM16 Drink Suggestion: Hidden Paradise :)
