How to Prepare for Your Engagement Shoot

December 1, 2014


This coming Saturday, Justin and I are gonna have our engagement shoot at BGC. You know what that means? I get to dress up and have fun!!!

I decided to write this post as a way for me to document my preparations and also share with you some tips that can help you on your own engagement shoot.

1. Choose the THEME of our Engagement Shoot. Justin and I wants something really CUTE, QUIRKY, and FUN. And as I do my google research I found out that the best theme for us is to go with a "Korean" inspired shoot. Here is a facebook link to what I am talking about https://www.facebook.com/idowed

They have amazing photos that can helped me plan and prepare for our photoshoot. I also suggest to take screen shots or save some of their photos as inspiration for your photographers and videographers.

2. Choose our Outfit. Now that you have chosen your theme, it's now time to lay out your outfit ideas. Here's a video that can help you plan what you will wear on your photoshoot.




3. Practice Posing with your Man. In this era of the "selfie", you probably already know your best angles. But please have in mind that in this photoshoot you are gonna be working with a partner. You may know how to pose but the fiance might have zero knowledge on his best features. So plan an afternoon where you can go to a room where there are mirrors (I suggest dressing rooms in the mall), and try some of the poses you screenshotted and practice. This will save you so much time during your engagement shoot if you know how to work your body and to work with your partner. For more tips, check out the videos below.

'Til next time.... Lav yah!

November 26, 2014

So here's what happened...

I'm SOOOOOO excited for future wedding hauls and moree.. eeehhhhh...



Lay Bare Bloggers' Event

November 11, 2014

A few weeks ago, I was invited to be part of Lay Bare's First Bloggers' Event. It was a jammed packed day filled with fun exciting activities.

Lay Bare is the first ever unwanted hair removal specialist in the Philippines. They provide eyebrow threading and body waxing services using cold sugar wax only. No more strips! No more hot wax! Just plain, comfortable, hair removal at a price you can definitely afford.. ( http://www.lay-bare.com/about-laybare.php )

For a newbie like me, finding the best waxing salon will make such a wonderful first time experience.



Just take a look at the brand partners??? I was like WHOOOAAAA!! SO Cool! Honestly, other than the waxing thing... I'm kinda looking forward to the all women's work out.. hihihi I badly need it 'coz I have been eating crappy weeks before this event...


As you enter Curves, This is how it looks like. I love how it's not intimidating and how it's so inviting.







After our intense 30 minute workout, we were told that we are now ready to head over Fisher Mall for the launching of their Newest Branch there.


Before entering Lay Bare, a huge buffet of sweets will just bring out the inner 'lil girl in you.. Just take a look at how rainbows and unicorns landed on this dessert table?!  FANCY!!!!



It was so beautiful that you wouldn't want to take a small bite... ( I wouldn't want to destroy that yummy piece of art )



After a few welcome remarks from their Marketing Director, Ms. Jaime, I too the challenge of going bare and having that dreaded Brazilian Wax. Waaaaahhhh!!!



I like how the tools or products are neatly laid out on the table. At first, I thought that having Mrs. Smith ( I will refer to my vagaegae as such) waxed would be like a trip to the OBGYNE... where you like lay on a contraption and raise both legs and be forced to endure a hell kinda pain. But here, it wasn't like that! they just bring in simple products and tools such as a damp warm cloth and the sugar that they will use for your waxing session. It's so hygenic because I don't see any sticks. I don't like waxing sticks.. they kinda give me that " Imma stab you NOW" feeling.



In ever room, there are these reminder for each client. It's very educating especially for someone like me.  Seriously, up until this point I didn't now the level of pain I will be going through because of the Brazilian Wax challenge.



This photo was taken shortly after the session. I'm not gonna lie.. IT WAS PAINFUL>>>!!!! REALLY!!! But I guess it is pretty normal for first timers like me. I mean come on... I never had anyone slap Mrs. Smith like that. But hey! Here's what made me endure that session. The pink lady you see on the left side of the photo, made my experience as calming and zen as it could possibly be.. hahhaa.. but really, she made me laugh so hard that I forgot how painful it was. She also promised that the second session will be 90% less painful and I trust her. 

Even if there was pain, the results were like.. wooooooaaahahhh!!! This time imagine angels decending down from heaven with all there harps making music in respect for my glorious vagaegae.. haha.. She looks absolutely stunning... and of course I wouldn't take a  before and after shot???  But just trust my words that your Mrs. Smith will look brighter, fairer and smoother.

It's been weeks after my first session and the regrowth of hairs are still minimal. I'm glad  I took that challenge.. Now I can definitely say I AM BIKINI READY... WIT WOOW!

Jergens 7 Day Challenge

November 4, 2014

After months of hectic work schedule, events, and more, I finally found time to pamper myself. Now this is the part where it gets better. It's not just a day, BUT A WEEK. I GET A WEEK OF PAMPERING... WOOT WOOT!

I hope those capital letters described how excited and overjoyed I am because this opportunity is quite rare.








Amazingly on the same day, I got a package in the mail that will accompany me on my one week "ME-TIME." It contains a chic looking box filled with goodies such as; Jergens Original Beauty Lotion and Jergens Soothing Aloe and a coffee container. This came with a note as well saying that I must fulfill a 7 Day Challenge. 

So to keep things exciting, I joined the bandwagon of bloggers who will try the 7 day challenge filled with 7 missions I must accomplish.


But wait! I don't want to do this alone.. come join me too.. and let's make it a whole 7 days of "WE-TIME."











 MISSION #1 : RADIATE BEAUTY FROM WITHIN
Take a bottle of Jergens from your welcome pack and share it with a complete stranger. Tell us why you chose that person and her reaction when she received your gift. Post a photo of her with her Jergens bottle.

I am so ready for this. Having beautiful skin should be for everyone and I felt I just know the right person for this. weeeeehhhh!!!!





Meet  Fanny, the nicest hair dresser in the planet. ( A shout out to the Gay Lesbian Community. I will use the title "she" because of her sexual orientation and I EXTREMELY respect that) She is such a sweetheart. I love how she makes every hair cutting session a fun hilarious experience. 

Because she spends 10- 12 hours in an air conditioned room cutting hair, her skin tends to feel dry and rough. So the giddy me happily handed her a bottle of Jergens Original Beauty Lotion as tip for her awesome service. 

Her reaction was priceless! The smile on her face tells me that she is grateful for the kind gesture I just did. 


MISSION #2: LEFT vs. RIGHT

Apply the new Jergens only on your left arm and leave the right arm bare for the meantime. Take a photo of both arms, comparing the two and tell us your observations.

So right before your eyes, you guys will see the difference between both arms. On my left, I applied a generous amount of lotion. Don't be scared to slather this baby on because it will never leave your skin feeling greasy. The formulation allows it to be easily absorbed by your skin. 


The aloe scent leaves you smelly fresh and clean. My fiance loves sniffing me whenever I have this on. He says I smell like "Bagong Ligo"  ^_^




Immediately the left arm looks fairer because light reflects better on a well moisturized skin.


Now it's your turn to do a selfie and use the hashtag: #LetItGlow and tag me @krislumagui and @jergens_vibelle 




MISSION #3: KEEP HYDRATED
 Water is good for your body and helps your skin healthy and looking young as well. Drink only water today using your Jergens tumbler. Post a photo with a time stamp every time you do a refill.




I know! I look different in these pictures. It's because I've drawn on my brows and wore those chic lenses. But other than that, what makes me beautiful in this picture is the fact that my skin is hydrated from inside and out.

There are tons of benefits from drinking water and I know you know that too! I try to make sure that I drink a glass every 2 hours to ensure my body and mind function right.


I love how Jergens supports skin nourishment from within. No other brand can take care of my skin the way Jergens do.




MISSION #4: NURTURE RELATIONSHIPS

Keeping healthy relationships go a long way to making you feel good and look good.
Take your mom or your best gal pal out for a surprise lunch or dinner tonight with this gift certificate from Cabalen.

Tip of the day: As you nurture your relationships, nourish your skin as well for a beauty that radiates inside and out. Apply your favorite Jergens variant twice a day to reveal your most beautiful skin yet



Wedding planning is never an easy deal. After getting engaged to this guy ( he's been my wedding plans rant go see.. lol) So to make things a lil bit chill for us, I invited him to have dinner with me and my parents...( nyhhahah! In Laws! hahhaha)

And of course the highlight of this dinner date is MY MOM... I just wanna say how amazing of a woman she is for raising me well and because of her I am the woman I am today. I LOVE YOU MOM.










MISSION #5: MAKE SOMEONE SMILE

Share your blessings, Gain a friend. Host a giveaway and make someone smile today. Choose 1 reader to receive a Jergens gift pack and give the gift of beautiful skin.

I started this blog with the hopes of making at least one of you out there feel HAPPY. All I ever wanted from the very beginning is to work hard and be successful in this chosen career so I can share my story, my life, the things I love so all of us can feel beautiful inside and out. So in this giveaway, I pay my tribute to my supporters and those who have been with me from the start. Thank you so much for all those wonderful comments and emails and messages. 

This is the beautiful Patty Patricio, one of my viewers and one of my bestest friends in the online community. This was the very first time someone ever recognized me and that feeling is still alive and I can perfectly recall how giddy and excited I was when I finally met a viewer in real life.

Sometimes I still find myself in awe thinking how in the world you guys waste so much time reading my blog and watching my videos! I love you and Congratulations to....

Tip of the day: Jergens Moisturizers work hand in hand with a healthy diet and exercise in keeping your skin stunningly beautiful. Apply your favorite Jergens variant twice a day to reveal your most beautiful skin yet

MISSION #7:THE FINISH LINE

Look for an old full body photo of yourself taken in the last 3 months. Then take a new photo in the exact same pose, this time holding the Jergens variant that you have been using in the past 7 days. Post the photo on your blog.


This was taken a few months ago and I will try to recreate the pacute na posing using my Jergens Soothing Aloe... haha






Before Jergens Soothing Aloe my skin is a bit dull and I try to hide my skin under those sheets

Now that I am a BRIDE TO BE, Jergens Soothing Aloe makes my skin dewy and soft and my fiance won't stop caressing m smooth legs :)











Deoproce Bubble Brightening Mask

October 26, 2014


Monday is such a fresh start! This is like the best day to go back to basics and to switch things up a bit when it comes to skin care.

It's no secret that I have been freakishly obsessing over Korean Skin Care Products. I googled a few brands and stumbled across Deoproce. The name sounds new to my ears but my curious brain tells me that I should give this a try. So I did a bit more research and found out that this mask is one of their best sellers. Immediately, I contacted their company to give their products a try and in less than a week I have my own bottle of  the O2 Bubble Brightening Mask.


It claims that it does 4 things like:

1. Deeply Cleanse the skin
2. Whiten dark spots and acne marks
3. Minimize the appearance of enlarged pores
4. Control excess oil



This is one of the few Korean Skin Care Products that actually has English instructions written on the packaging. Yehey for that!


So here's how it looks like... It comes on silky and smooth. but once you rub the product on the rest of the skin... Magic happens...


It bubbles up on its own. The longer you leave it in, the more froth it will produce. If you want to see how I apply this on my face, check out the video below.




What I love about the mask is its technology of self cleansing. It cleanses own its own leaving your skin smooth and supple. The smell isn't funky too. It has that cottony smell and a hint of an herbal scent infused in the product.

Right after you wash the product off, you might notice a bit of redness, but don't bother. It's just a minor skin reaction to the deep cleansing technology of the mask. You'll also see that after a few hours, your face will be less likely to get oily.

It is recommended to use this 2-3x  a week to prevent any sin irritation.

If you have tried the product, let me know how it works for you. Please feel free to comment below.




Nu Skin AgeLoc Gentle Cleanse & Tone

October 21, 2014
It’s no wonder that the secret to great skin starts at the basics, CLEANSING.  Cleansing is the very first step you must do in order to ensure a healthy looking skin. Before you decide to slather on all sorts of anti-aging products,  make sure that you are cleaning your face thoroughly.

So here I share a breakthrough product that will forever change your face cleansing routine.
NuSkin AgeLoc Gentle Cleanse & Tone is a 2-in-1 product that will reveal fresh and pure skin. It gently cleanses, purifies, and hydrates skin, preparing it to receive advanced anti-aging ingredients. The dual-action  formula works gently at skin’s own natural healthy pH, combining cleansing and toning into a single step while leaving skin looking refreshed and youthful.




Directions: Moisten face with warm water. Place 3 pumps on finger tips and gently massage face, avoiding contact with eyes. Rinse with water and pat dry.


What I love about the product is that it pumps out froth that you can directly massage on your face making skin cleansing experience so invigorating and refreshing.
Due to its price, I use it sparingly. I use this twice a week during maintenance day both on my morning and night routine. (Would you like to see a maintenance day video? Let me know down the comment secion)

PRODUCT BENEFITS:
•  ageLOC targets the sources of aging to preserve the look of youth and reduce the appearance of aging.

Price: 2960Php
It’s a  splurge! No doubt about that?! But the products deliver the results it promised
Packaging: It comes in a pearl finish plastic bottle.


Smell: 
I don’t know if I’s just me or the product smells like lemon zest. It has that soft tone of Lemon scent in it.

Final Thoughts:

Yes! I will repurchase the product. It might be a little too much for the price, but it's worth every pump. My skin has never been cleansed this way before.

So have you tried the product? Let me know about your experience below...^_^
