    Trixia Salonga

    Hi! I'm Trixia and welcome to my slice of life. I'm not your average blogger, I'm a hybrid of multi-dimensional shoujo, a rare breed of legal loli and a unique original producer of ideas and inspiration. My path goes on the other side of the road which is less traveled, where thrill and excitement rests. This blog holds my inner thoughts, experiences, opinions and out-of-the-ordinary theories which I keep as a journal of my life's highlights. Contact me at reshadaseamaiden@gmail.com for collaboration


    The sun shines brightly and so as my skin when I started this adding this special soap to my skin care regimen and I am very proud to tell you that I am a happy user of Fleek Instawhite Bar Soap which I am using for more than a month and my skin has been happier ever since!




    I use it literally every time I was my face from morning and evening, it only has a faint good aroma and even helps me take off my makeup thoroughly for a clean fresh face in the evening. It a little drying on the side but I am glad to have the creams from The Skin bureau partnered up with the soap bringing back moisture.



    Usage: 

    Using the soap is very simple, Wet the face with water and lather the soap in your hand making bubbles and slowly in a circular motion massage in your forehead, cheeks and nose area where most dirt residue are building up working your way to the sides where you haven't placed soap yet and rinse with water.

    Repeat as needed. 


    Results


    After a month and half use

    Minimal Makeup needed for everyday which means skin doesn't absorb too many chemicals.
    Pimple scars gone and brighter skin.

    Oh finally, I get to review one of our locally made skin care set and I am dying to share to you all how great and mighty these little babies are. What an irony! Haha.

    But seriously, when I got these babies last December I had so many breakout issues because of my diet, everything I eat was oily and I couldn't even monitor my intake since we join Christmas parties and hell breaks loose with all diet plans.

    didn't wonder why I get breakouts because my food intake greatly impacts my skin condition.

    So when I started these babies and noticed the changes after a week I continued to use and review them. See what happened on my use for the products:

    Products for review:

    1. President Pretty Soap
    2. Charming Campaign Day Gel
    3. Cabinet Allure Night Cream
    4. Beauty Queen Party Ultimate Day Toner
    5. Gorgeous Allegation Ultimate Night Toner

    Price: P1,299 per set

    President Pretty Soap

    This soap is incredibly moisturizing which is perfect for my dry skin and leaves soft skin after lather. When I use the soap I usually cut a small piece, it's easier to use that way and prevents the soap from melting. Since it's very soft I can also tell that I would need to store it in a dry container.

    Charming Campaign Day Gel 

    Applying the Gel before makeup provides a smooth surface for makeup. When used alone, it can be very moisturizing for a bare face giving a faint Koreana skin texture.



    Cabinet Allure Night Cream

    By the time I had washed my face and took all my makeup, my skin gets dry and this helps to return moisture.

    Beauty Queen Party Ultimate Day Toner

    I felt a little tingle on the sensation to my pimple scars and developing pimples when I applied this Gel. A few days after they all dried up which made me really happy.

    Gorgeous Allegation Ultimate Night Toner

    I never tried a separate toner at night before and this was my perfect chance to do so, the effect on my skin is very tightening and also helped with acne issues as it slowly fades.

    Before





















    Skin breakouts are evident drying on skin and uneven tone.

    After


    Good even skin tone and no breakouts

    Thank you The Skin Bureau!

    Happening to a near side-by-side with the Award’s Night is the SBR EXPO, a retailers event showcasing items all geared to the needs of a tri-athlete.  New retailers will join in the event showing their wares that are health related in nature that both athletes and non-sport minded individuals may be interested in. This is an open to all event, regulars of the mall can also enjoy the items offered on those days.


    The first of all the races will take place in April which is the AQUAMAN (Aquathlon), followed by the DUAMAN (Duathlon) in May and capping it all off with the TRIMAN (Triathlon) in June; registration for all SBR events is now open to all interested individual and enjoy an early bird discount.  


    Part of SBR’s plan for this year is to launch a race event for kids and PWD’s – a group that shows promise in terms of growth, recognition and possible fair market locally and abroad.  Mr. De Guzman believes that the sport should be made open to all ages, sex and physical condition and still maintains the element of simple enjoyment without the normal pressure of a very dynamic and demanding sport.  He aims to bring the sport nationwide and have it set on the natural terrain of the province that he goes to.
                  


    WHO IS SBR.PH?

    What started as a simply desire by a tri-athlete is now a growing e-commerce and triathlon event group serving the growing local fans and enthusiasts of the sports, thus SWIMBIKERUN.ph is born in 2011.

    SWIMBIKERUN.ph (SBR.ph) is the brainchild of a Carlos de Guzman, a tri-athlete with a passion for the sports.  With the fire burning strong, a community is now formed that is continuously growing and inspiring lives.  SBR.ph is an online store that caters to the gear needs of tri-athletes and/or those that are simply into running, swimming and cycling.  He has shirts, socks, caps, drinking bottles, monitor watches, goggles, support straps and such made available on his site.  He can also give support to some cyclist needs such as wheels.  

    Carlos de Guzman  conceptualized a whole tri-series event designed for beginners and come-backers.  This locally produced event is set to have the participants beat their own time in their own pace, letting them enjoy the whole experience of being part of this sport.  The logic behind this is to help the participant develop their own confidence and needed strength without the pressure of an outside time meter.  They build their strength and stamina and when they are ready, then they can fully try-out the other triathlon events in the country.  That is why he developed the whole sports event in a segmented pattern – the Aquaman (Aquathlon), the Duaman (Duathlon) and the Triman (Triathlon).  These allowed interested individuals to try out a segment first, build his confidence and strength, move to the next, and rebuild his strength again, till he is ready for the whole thing.  It also became a retraining ground for those who were out of the circuit for a time, making it a place for beginners and elites to meet and know one another and have their stories shared – flowing freely within the growing community.





    After cultivating the soil for interaction, what better way to make it prosper by having a recognition activity and an expo thus the Award’s Night and SBR Expo was born.  This became a much attended event by the growing community of SBR.ph.  Enthusiast of the sports gets to be truly interactive by nominating their favorites and voting for those who qualified the nomination stage.  Winner gets to get the accolade that they deserve from the community that they are part of.  With the expo, runners, cyclist and swimmers get to see, choose and purchase sport’s items in one location.  It also became a meet and greeting ground for tri-athletes, community member or enthusiast they may be.  Expo retailers get to show their latest ware and enjoy a day or two of greeting, friendly haggling and seeing familiar and new faces in the sports.


    From e-commerce to events maker to recognition and a growing home grown community, SBR.ph is truly making it strong and will push the envelope, opening new venues this 2018.



    With the online voting taking place right now, the triathlon community of the Philippines is buzzing with excitement and is waiting for the results which will be made known during the Award’s Night which shall take place still at the event center of CCM.  Recognition to be given are for the following categories:

    Elite Tri-Athlete of the Year (Men and Women Division)
    Duathlete of the Year (Men and Women Division)
    Age Group Tri-athlete of the Year (Men and Women Division)

    Hello, fashionistas! We're here at Makati once more for another press release for SBR Expo & SBR awards night.

    As usual, the invitation was sent in a rush as we did not expect to join in because we thought we'd pick up some tokens from December's Bazaar Press Release.

    but as Ms. Cherry invited us to become media partners we thought it'd be a great opportunity to find out about the event.

    On this post, though we're not here to talk about the event we're here to present to you the OOTD during the Media Launch. The post for the Media Launch is in progress and will be posted once done.

    So without further ado, let's head on



    The sun was shiny and there wasn't any forecast of impending rain in the area so I grab in a pair of International Klein blue sleeveless piece with necklace attached. Yes, the necklace is part of the outfit's accessory so you don't need to find an accessory to pair it with. This is all thanks to my mom who gifted it a long time ago and she probably wouldn't remember it (shh don't say it, let her guess who it came from).


    I paired it with same International Klein blue colored shorts and secured my bottoms from those peeping toms ready to get inside the Jeepneys or buses.

    If you remember my facebook post of sunglasses I bought at Divisoria, this is one of the Stylish cat glasses I wore on the same date.
    The dress comes with a tie and provides a flexible adjustment for your body size.


    I finally was able to wear sleeveless this time as I just had my HeySugar session yesterday before this launch. Hihihi
    Bag is a gift of God like the sign says from Jeepney. Every part of my outfit was given by my loved ones and not a single dime spent, the sunglasses we're bought by bf.

    We have some brown leather school shoes (almost flat) because we're walking long distances and for a mature hair style a low professional updo.

    So there we are, I was glad I wore it because it was definitely light as a feather and airy for long walks. 

    Till next time again and watch out for the press release of SwimBikeRun
    . Thursday, January 25, 2018 .



    Last November 17, 2017, Hey Sugar opened up at Trinoma and we joined in. We went there hours before the bloggers time for waxing and they were fully booked. So, we decided to reschedule the booking for next time. 

    Instead, we were offered a buffet of a sweet and warm smile from the staffs in welcome. 

    On January 25, 2018, I went back for the waxing, luckily at the time I went around 1:00 pm there weren't any customers at the moment so I was given a TLC attention.


    EYEBROW THREADING
     I was feeling nervous at first but when she held the thread with both hands, she moved swiftly and because of that, I didn't feel any pain. It was Ms. Vanessa Corporal which assisted me. She was even fun to converse with and caring in handling her customers.

    She asks me to stretch out some skin for her to thread easily. I'm glad to help!
     Extra hair growth that needed threading is done in a professional manner

    By the time it was done I snoozed.

    They moved me inside one of their cubicles and until the underarm waxing was done I fell asleep.
    Literally. I didn't feel pain although I felt the hot wax touch my skin it was too soothingly comfortable I can't help dozing off!


    ARMPIT WAXING


    Clean and ready to show to the world armpits. Wake up. hey!

    Ms. Vanessa Corporal the most professional Aesthetician that even got me asleep because the session was comfortable and swift.

    Everything took only 30 minutes from eyebrow threading to armpit waxing.

     To make your waxing experience even more effective, Hey Sugar! shares 7 insider waxing tips straight from their aestheticians.

    1. Skip the lotion on the day of your appointment. They need a clean and dry skin so that you can achieve the best result.

    2. If you are to undergo waxing, skip shaving 2 weeks before your scheduled appointment. This is to ensure that hair is long enough to lie flat on the skin.

    3. Give time for your skin to breath after you wax. Since Hair will be removed and skin will be exposed, the skin will be sensitive.

    4. Avoid the harsh sun after waxing. It’s a no-no to have waxing services a day before you hit the beach or any other activities where there is a lot of sun exposure.

    5. Avoid extreme heat like saunas, steam rooms, and hot showers. Use cold water after waxing.

    6. Don’t wear tight-fitting clothes after having your waxing services. This includes synthetic Lycra that you usually use as a workout or gym clothes. Yes! A valid reason to skip the gym.

    7. Start exfoliating a couple of days after waxing to prevent ingrown hairs.
