Well-loved all over Asia, especially by Filipinos, Sandara Park is frontlining the Spring-Summer 2016 campaign of international fashion brand, Penshoppe.

I've been a fan ever since her SCQ days and krung krung moments on tv!!! ahhh I've never been so excited to meet an International artist / Kpop Superstar. <3

Knorr #LoveAtFirstTaste

See what happens when strangers, matched only by flavor, meet for a surprisingly intimate first date
in the new global campaign ‘Love At First Taste’

Can flavor tell us more about ourselves than we think? Moreover, can people be matched based on their flavor profiles? As experts in flavor, Knorr has discovered how our favorite flavors might mean so much more than previously thought, particularly when it comes to finding love.

The research behind this new campaign spoke to 12,000 people in 12 different countries, on the ground breaking role flavors play in our lives. With 83% of responders claiming to be more attracted to people who enjoy the same food flavors as them, this fuelled the idea that your personality flavor can truly help in making a meaningful connection and determine the depth and quality of our various relations – whether with family members, friends and peers, or even romantic partners.  80% see flavor as an important part of their everyday life. In fact, 69% of find the idea of trying out new flavors sexy and exciting, and surprisingly, 73% of them would even most willingly give up social media first forever before sacrificing flavor.

Overall, the research reveals how our flavor preferences are just as important when it comes to choosing a partner, as eight out of ten people said they are more attracted to people who share their flavor preferences. A third even said they found someone ordering a dish they disliked a turn off, though one in five is wise to this and admits to choosing a meal they didn’t like to impress a date.

Putting these insights and research to the ultimate test, a social experiment campaign with a twist was created to showcase how flavor can be catalysts to life’s meaningful connections. In a short film entitled Love at First Taste, sets of two complete strangers were paired up in a blind date on the basis on their love for the same flavors. The result? An entertaining film that underpins how each culinary experience and flavor creates distinct memories and feelings with people, discovered using the Flavor Profiler.

Creamsilk Double Up Beauty Event

The Creamsilk girl in me got so excited when I received an invite last December 2015 for their Beauty Event in 71 Gramercy. Aside from the fact that this is the event of one of the conditioners I trust my hair with, I was also curious about the venue because it's the Philippines' tallest skyscraper (as what I've read online!) and it has 71 Floors! Anyway, the event had a collaboration with 4 top beauty experts who taught us how to Double up our Beauty with Creamsilk.

Been using creamsilk since I was a kid and 
it's definitely one of my favorite conditioners! <3

We were lucky enough to meet and listen to Agoo Bengzon who discussed about the big difference nice brows can make (yup, keep those brows on fleek!) While Peewee Reyes-Isidro taught us about using a skinny scarf for our outfits and my favorite part was Make-up, of course. Rissa Mananquil-Trillo, owner of Happy Skin Cosmetics which is one of my favorite Filipino Brands and she's also one of my favorite models since I was a kid. :D I'm so glad to see her discussing about make-up and easy tricks to keep our faces fresh all day. and finally the day came when I got to see Raymond Santiago do his hair tricks LIVE!!! It was such a pleasure because I've been following him on instagram for years now and was always a fan of his works. He did all the hair demos so easily! I don't even know how I'd be able to do it but atleast seeing him gave me hope. :D
