Best Dressed 2015

Last September 22, I attended 
the Best Dressed Women of the Philippines Annual Ball 
held at Makati Shangri-La Hotel.

The BDWP ball is a charitable event geared towards raising funds 
for the benefit of the Philippine Cancer Society.

If you've been regularly reading my posts, 
this fashion for a cause event will be very familiar, 
all thanks to the beautiful, generous and kindhearted

Jennifer Helen Weigel Sarmiento

Tita Jennifer is multi-talented and extremely fashionable.
She was recently crowned last June 13, 2015 as 
Mrs. Asia International 2015 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The 2 lovely ladies in the photo below are her twin daughters:
Jennifer Elaine Sarmiento with her date Kirby Yu Bun-an &
Jasmin Ellen Sarmiento with her date Ralph Andrei Juan

A big thanks to one of my best friends Jas for having me in this 
spectacular event. Truly it was a night to remember.

I'll keep this short and sweet.
It's not enough for a woman to be physically beautiful.
What we all must strive for is how to become 
women of substance --- Someone that can truly inspire change

And what more can I say, like mother like daughter.
Indeed, I am very proud of her!
They deserve all the blessings and success that come their way :)

Most of us are still a work-in-progress and hopefully
someday we can create better versions of ourselves :)

Majority of the photos in this post are taken by Mark Ryan Alvarez
He's a professional photographer and accepts event bookings :)

Back in the old days, women have been stereotyped as 

Thankfully, times have changed and we have redeemed ourselves as
 someone capable of achieving GREATER things.

Don't get me wrong though, I'm not claiming that I'm perfect 
(because I'm far from being one),
but over the years, I've learned to become a 
woman of strength, character and confidence.

 With my hands full on so many things, people have always asked me how I do it.
I won't say it's easy because it isn't, 
but with the right amount of will power, it's definitely attainable.

To make your life easier, I have created this photo diary 
(with the special participation of my twin)
to share with you what we do 2x a week to keep us feeling clean and sexy!

Whether you're still studying or already working, stress will get to you. 
Beat it by making ordinary days look extra special.

Imagine yourself going out on a date with your special someone. 
Wear that look on days you feel like giving up
and get ready to find yourself overwhelmed with compliments. 

I also recommend wearing statement pieces such as an all white ensemble to look classy
and sophisticated. This keeps you looking fresh and carefree all day.

Power dress to keep you feeling clean and sexy.
Do this twice a week and you'll find yourself inspired and all perked-up.
Who knows, your professor/ boss might even applaud you for looking very presentable.

Make sure to reconnect with yourself.

Remember that both your mind and body are of one entity
so allocate time to improve your well-being by exercising.

Live an active lifestyle to keep you feeling clean and sexy.
Take the stairs, walk home or do some errands.
Do this twice a week to stay in shape. 
That's not all. Expect better sleep and a more energetic you.

Whether it's your family, your significant other or your friends that 
puts a smile on your face, make sure to spend quality time with them.

They are the ones that keep you together when everything seems to fall apart.

If by any chance they too become busy, don't just mope around.
It's time for you to go out and meet new friends. 

Socialize. Socialize. Socialize.
Do this twice a week and it will change the way you look at things.
For what it's worth, you'll be dancing thru life with a lot of positivity.

Once in awhile, take some time off and pamper yourself.
Whether it's as simple as eating your favorite comfort food

or as lavish as a well-deserved vacation, 
do not deprive yourself of what makes you happy.

Allocate time for "Me Time"
Do this twice a week and you'll be surprised on how much
it can help restore your strength and vigor.
Because a woman full of passion is a woman worth respecting.

Most of the time, we become so preoccupied with our physical appearance that
we forget the most crucial part --- Good Hygiene.

Trust me, no matter how attractive a woman might be,
guys find it a major turnoff when she has poor skin regimen ;
Simply put, bad hygiene means no regard for overall wellness.

That's why I'm sharing with you a little secret of mine
which I have tried and tested to be 100% effective:
BETADINE® Feminine Wash.

Call me cupid or goddess,
but I swear that this product is heaven-sent:

I don't know about you, but those days that I have my period are
 the times I feel most insecure about myself.

Fortunately, I found the secret antidote
to fight that discomfort and irritation I'm feeling down there
with the use of BETADINE® Feminine Wash,
which leaves me feeling clean and sexy all day.

Believe me, nothing is more beautiful in a woman than her confidence.
Times have changed and Clean is the New Sexy

A little trivia about my personal life:
My twin and I usually argue about almost everything, but surprisingly, 
when it comes to choosing a feminine wash we trust, 
both of us have the same brand of choice.
Nothing comes close than BETADINE® Feminine Wash.

Every woman has the right to feel sexy and confident.
Sexy is not only defined as having the physical attributes;
it's someone who is able to transcend what meet the eye.

At the end of the day,
a woman of substance is a woman of beauty.

Whether it’s at the beach or having a well deserved staycation,
protect yourself with Betadine® Feminine Wash.

It's the #1 most prescribed and doctor-trusted
liquid antiseptic feminine wash (Povidone Iodine 7.5%) 
that keeps your intimate area clean,
free from any irritation and neutralizes odor to keep you carefree all day long.

If there’s anything I want you to remember after reading this blog post of mine,
it’s that we have the ability to control our own happiness.

Feeling good about yourself doesn't need to be expensive.
All you need to do is invest in a proper self-care routine,
as this serves as a foundation of a woman's confidence and sexiness.

Take care of yourself by applying BETADINE® Feminine Wash.
Do this twice a week (or everyday during red days)
and you'll feel more comfortable, 
confident and empowered in your own skin.

So what are you waiting for? 
I invite you to Join the #SexyCleanRevolution ,
a movement that encourages every woman out there to become
their sexiest by staying clean down there :)
#IDoItTwiceAWeek #BETADINEFeminineWash

Women must realize that real beauty is
when one is able to go beyond her comfort zone, 
yet feel comfortable and sexy at the same time.

Many people say that if we look good, then we’ll feel good; 
but I say, feeling good is more important because 
what comes from within will come out naturally. 

No pretense or whatsoever, 
just that sexy appeal that will leave anyone breathless :)

Dove Girls

A week ago, I got the opportunity to stay at Aruga Rockwell,
many thanks to Dove who always makes sure that we get the best care we deserve :)

I spent it with my twin Sophie 

and my tita Becca.

My family and I have always been a loyal user of Dove
so when I was chosen by Dove to join them for a staycation together
with my girlfriends, it was time to pack our bags and go :)

I wore this white V Neck Ruffle Bodycon Dress by ROMWE
for a sophisticated look. 

Thank you Dove for the very warm welcome :)

Special mention to Ms.Julia Ng, Dove Hair Brand Manager for making this happen. 
It was an honor to meet the person behind Dove's unwavering success.
And interestingly, we both share the same last name. Amazing! :)

While having some snacks prepared by Aruga,
together with other Dove Girls,

I got to share my testimony of how Dove has touched my life.
Being so busy in business as well as my passion for blogging,
I make it a point that I look presentable because the way we carry ourselves 
reflects our true confidence.

Thankfully, Dove has given me that luxury my body not only needed but wanted. 
Real Beauty comes with real care and Dove does that.

They say all good things come to an end but I say this is only the beginning of
something beautiful. We all have the capability to inspire and empower women
to be strong and beautiful.

Let's start with proper self-care because the moment we embrace our true selves,
that's when we become the most beautiful. 
Proud to be a user of Dove Oxygen Nourishment :)

Because no matter what, you and I are Dove Girls!
