Reducing anxiety, ease depression, boost energy levels, eliminates headaches, induce sleep, strengthen the immune system, improves blood circulation and speed up the healing process of the body, these are some of the benefits of aromatherapy. πŸ‘ Aromatherapy is a kind of an alternative medicine treatment that can be aromatically inhaled by the patients that involves the use of volatile plant materials also known as essential oils extracted from flowers and plants. It also improves a good mood, some people does this as their supplemental medicine. In the 11th century when the steam distillation was made possible to extract an essential oil from the plant materials it made aromatherapy even more popular. Since then, aromatherapy offered a wide range of uses for health and wellness and now cultures all around the world has recognize aromatherapy. This therapy is being practice in India, France, England,Β  and the United States it can also found in a lot of countries.

The range of possibilities is almost endless using essential oils. Blending essential oils is such an important study for alternative healers. However, it’s important to first consult a trained and licensed aromatherapists, as some essential oils can trigger skin allergy and it can be toxic if mixed improperly. Aromatherapy essential oils are diluted in a water bath or massage oil to make the effect less strong. Because if you use a strong concentration of essential oils it can also lead into a wide range of negative side effects. There are a huge numbers of combinations that have been tested but not all of them are approved by a normal doctor since this is a alternative treatment. You should pay attention very well in your body whenever you are using/doing aromatherapy as a therapeutic solution, carefully notice your skin reaction as it might develop some skin allergy.

Aroma and/or scents are powerful to our senses and emotion, it can also elevate our state of mind and influence our behavior.

Have you guys tried Aromatherapy yet? Well, you should at least try the massage oil and the scented candles. This is vital for people like me who has been stressed a lot lately.xD πŸ˜‚ As for me, i’m using a sandalwood items such as body butter, lip balm and a hand cream. This makes my skin so moisturize and supple plus it relaxes my senses every time i inhaled it. The scent is just sooo heaven for me! 😘

For now i’m using this Sandalwood vanilla body butter!

Johnnys & Associates a JPOP’s Fangirl Paradise!

0601_JE_CI_03_1

Yo! Konbanwa minna! πŸ™‹ Good evening everyone! It is no secret that i am actually addicted with japanese idols! Fangirl desu! (im a fangirl!) πŸ˜‚Β  Tonight i will be talking about my favorite japanese entertainment agency that has a lot of ikemen (good looking) actors or rather called Japanese idols! Johnnys & Associates is my most favorite among all agencies πŸ‘ Why? i don’t even know why! lol πŸ˜‚ just kidding! Of course their idols are not just ikemen (good looking) and marketable they has a lot of charisma, ellegance, and simplicity bind into one. 😍

Idol groups of this agency makes me a lot happier everytime! Idols songs somehow cheers my spirits up with a lot of passion and inspiration. Johnnys has a lot of popular male celebrities in Japan, idols aside from being handsome and being in a group, they also showcases their ability on acting like stage plays, hosting, MC-ing, and so on.

The male idols typically starting their carrier as a Johnnys jr. They enter the agency as a young boy and/or a teenager and backdances for the senpai groups (senior popular groups) which make the Jrs more promising as the crowd wants to see more of them! who can’t resist their pure cuteness? Even when they are young they also manage to make the female fans go crazy over them! I am so sure my fellow JE fangirls understands what im talking about!xD 😘

https://janishowa.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/johnnys-jr-2012.jpg?w=455&h=657

https://i1.wp.com/38.media.tumblr.com/60befb157dac5732037409c39ddec64a/tumblr_nh3jqyq0WN1qgra9eo1_500.gif

I am certainly keeping my eye on Genki Iwahashi and Hokuto Matsumura these two are my consistent favorites! 😘

For the past 40 years the agency has produced many dancing and singing group/act. They are always competitive and doing well on the charts and as a fan i can proudly say that Johnnys is the best when it comes to male idols!

It all began in 1962, When Johnny Kitagawa heats up the industry for marketing and producing male idol groups. Johnny Kitagawa was a japanese born in Los Angeles and has a american citizenship. His parents came to the United States to widen the Buddhism since his father was a missionary. Kitagawa came to Japan after serving the US military during the Korean war in 1952, He became as an administrative staffer for the US Embassy in Tokyo.

Kitagawa was facinated in the movie “West Side Story”. This film gave him the idea to start a business to create and produce singing and dancing groups. However his first group launched by the agency in 1962 called as “The Johnnies” it is a 4 male member group, This group didn”t make it that big, but for Johnny it is his starting point that opens the door of opportunities to which is later became his successful carrier.

And now let’s talk about my favorite groups! kyaaaaaaaa! πŸ’•

First up is NEWS! They are my first beloved group in JE~ They are a 4-member group now~

https://momosdaybook.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/news-news-jpop-32085900-1280-922.jpg?w=912&h=657

Originally, NEWS was a 9 member group when they debut.

https://bakavaca.files.wordpress.com/2007/10/9news1.jpg?w=876&h=657

And then later became 8 member

https://i0.wp.com/i1.jpopasia.com/gal/2898.jpg

Until they became a 6-member group.

https://i2.wp.com/uploads.ru/i/A/7/k/A7kXU.jpg

I got really depressed when Ryo and Yamapi leaves the group. However NEWS is NEWS. The NEWS i’d love before is still the NEWS i’d love today, no matter what, NEWS is my favorite ultimate JE idol group indeed.

NEWS is now consist of four members namely,

Keiichiro Koyama, Takahisa Masuda, Shigeaki Kato, Tegoshi Yuya! 😍

Past members: Tomohisa Yamashita, Ryo Nishikido, Takahiro Moriuchi, Hiroki Uchi, and Hironori Kusano.

Here are some of my favorite JE groups!

ARASHI

https://i1.wp.com/images6.fanpop.com/image/photos/36200000/Arashi-image-arashi-36239387-1932-1503.jpg

Arashi is a lovable group, it is a strong group when it comes to fanbase. I believe most of their fans was rich due to their sales.xD lol yeah i just based it on that, but really kidding aside, Arashi is really an amazing group and they deserved their achievements today.

https://38.media.tumblr.com/5dbc1d62c186e26ee9247497b24922fc/tumblr_n8bsosVaat1qifijxo1_500.gif

KAT-TUN

https://i0.wp.com/data.whicdn.com/images/132275829/original.png

KAT-TUN also became a quartet group due to the departure of JIn Akanishi and Koki Tanaka from the group. KAT-TUN for me is one of the best group who sings live, that’s why i keep on missing Koki and Jin. KAT-TUN’s voice is definately heaven in my ears. I love their ballad songs such as Crazy Love, Precious One, and Ano Hi No You Ni. πŸ’•

Aishiteru.....Kame^^ photo kameaishiteru.gif

Hey! Say! Jump!

Hey! Say! Jump! is originally a 10 member group, but later became a 9 member group when Ryutaro Morimoto’s departure, they debuted in 2007. And now they became such ikemen men!xD http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/johnnyassociates/images/5/55/Hey_Say_JUMP_2009.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20110921220608

https://i1.wp.com/www.jpopasia.com/i1/news/4/16296-r5nbmgdaor.jpg

JUMP is one of the popular and promising group of the agency. These boys are the cutest group during their Jr days i swear! I remembered the time when some of the members backdances for NEWS on one of their concerts. Oh, so nostalgic those days are my first year of becoming a JE fangirl~ time flies so fast! 😘

https://33.media.tumblr.com/e44854088fe9787c33a85ecb388e3161/tumblr_mvc56a30ZV1slai39o1_500.gif

KANJANI8

https://i2.wp.com/aramajapan.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/aramajapan_kanjanism.jpg

This group is so fun to watch and yet they have the best and unique vocal abilities too. Kanjani8 has a feel good kinds of songs. Somehow i find myself listening to their songs a lot lately, the thing is i miss Ryo’s voice in NEWS but in a good way that is giving me a nostalgic feeling. 😊

https://i2.wp.com/33.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mat4o2AzyO1rx4loio1_500.gif

I so love this one! πŸ˜‚

SMAP

 photo Calendar2014_cover_zpsac57acfd.jpg

SMAP is my favorite senpai (senior) group! What i love about them is that, they are the best when it comes to comedic skits and at the top of that they always manage to perform with some of hollywood stars who visits Japan i really had fun watching Lady Gaga and SMAP together in the same stage.

https://i1.wp.com/img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20131130081404/ladygaga/images/9/99/11-28-13_SMAPxSMAP_001.jpg

amazing isn’t it?

 photo 22_Shingowinks.gif

My ichi (favorite) is originally Yamashita Tomohisa! I am a Yamapi wifey! 😘 haha,xD

https://tuneuplyrics.files.wordpress.com/2013/08/yamapi.jpg?w=980&h=657

Yamapi is really the reason why i became a Jonnys fangirl. For me Yamapi’s simplicity is too attractive. I remembered the moment i saw him dancing the song “Let Me” i was very much giggling! 😍 Since then i became one of his biggest fans. πŸ’–

As a fangirl of the jimusho (Agency) for 8 years now, i can really say that Johnnys Entertainment never fails to amaze me every single time. The groups are doing a lot of effort with a lot of passion which makes it a paradise for fans.

Asian Secrets Lulur Indonesian Whitening Body Scrub Review

Hi everyone! πŸ™‹ Today i’m back with a product review post! For the past months i’ve been using the body scrub called Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Body Scrub. 😊 I’ve went to the mall and notice this product from their shelves, i already gained curiosity Β and so i decided to try it.

IMG_20150717_140120-picsay

I choose the green one which has green tea and vitamin e. According to the packaging it is dermatologist tested and hypoallergenic. πŸ‘ Lulur Indonesian whitening body scrub is a beauty treatment which originated from the royal palaces of Java, Indonesia and inspired by a ritual called Lulur. Lulur was originally intended for the bride-to-be in order to beautify, smoothen and whiten the skin before the wedding day. (credits to the packaging) πŸ‘

Lulur sounds interesting isn’t it? I just love the fact that it is an Indonesian product! πŸ‘πŸ˜Š I love Indonesia’s most popular idol group JKT48! And my favorite Indonesian singer Agnes Monica! Which makes Indonesia one of my favorite country! πŸ˜‰πŸ‘ (I know irrelevant, sorry! I’m just trying to insert few of my beloved fandom.xD πŸ˜‚)

IMG_20150715_201416-picsay

This is what the product looks like~

The moment i opened it the scent was somehow so relaxing! I love it’s fragrance! πŸ‘ It is very creamy white consistency, when i get some of the product and put it on my skin, i can really feel the exfoliating beads, and the product feels so smooth and moisturizing into the skin.

I applied it on my arms and other areas on my body, especially on the dark areas like knees, elbows, and underarms and other areas you want to whiten, then rub it.

At first, you can easily rub your skin with the product but after a few minutes, the creamy consistency becomes a bit kind of sticky and hard-to-scrub-like consistency, it is because the product is cleaning and exfoliating your skin. When you take a look on your desired area with the product, you will notice that the dead skin cells and dirt just came out of your skin! πŸ‘ then rinse it.

I’m using this scrub once or twice a week as needed or as i desired. πŸ˜‰ I use this before bath.

After using this, my skin feels so soft, clean, and smells so good! πŸ‘ This only cost me PHP 61.55 for 135g.

Here’s my verdict:

PROS:

β€’ Available on leading department stores and supermarkets!

β€’ Cheap!

β€’ Cleanse and leaves your skin with a light frangrance!

CONS:

β€’ If you are after the whitening effect, maybe you need to use this for a while, as for me i didn’t notice any whitening effect, unless it whitens your skin just after you use the product, then it will be back to your normal skin tone after a while.

It kinda does an effective job on cleaning my skin so I’ll give this product a

9 πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– hearts! 9/10

It is minus 1 point because it really didn’t whitens my skin. But it’s OK, it’s really a good body scrub. πŸ‘ If you guys will ask me if I’ll purchase again, my answer is yes! Im actually on my second jar! πŸ‘

That’s it for this product! πŸ˜‰ hope you guys will try this body scrub too! Read my previous product reviews posts and comment below for your questions! Thanks for dropping by! πŸ™‹ See you in my next post! Bye! πŸ™‹πŸ˜˜

Take care everyone!

Health-Benefits-of-Bananas

Banana has potassium, a lot of studies shown that the effectiveness of foods rich in potassium like banana are potent for lowering the blood pressure. Banana can also give us additional boost of energy! The combination of its natural sugars takes balance with the soluble fiber and potassium when eaten half an hour, before gym or before doing an exercise routine. It also helps our digestion because banana is a good source of dietary fiber.

Compounds in banana create a protective thicker barrier in the stomach against hydrochloric acid which makes it also good for people with ulcers! πŸ‘ It also contains vitamin B6, vitamin C, magnesium, and manganese. Tryptophan is an amino acid which your body converts to serotonin, which makes the banana improve your mood every time you eat it. It helps regulate good sleep pattern as well. 😘

Hi! Guys! I decided to update tonight since i have some spare time. Homebase jobs are getting me real curious! And so, i have this tips on how to turn your spare room into an office! Earlier i was inspired by the the photos i’ve seen on google about home offices. πŸ‘ Working at the comfort of your own home is a great option for some people. Home base workers are mostly housewives and persons with disability. Well, nowadays everyone is looking forward to work at home too, even me. This kind of job is a big trend worldwide. πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ I think it’s cool to have your own office at home and it is giving you a lot of convenience!

If you are running a small business at home, office is an advantage too. Here’s how it works:

β€’ Customize your desired space

modular-home-office-furniture

Today a home office is a basic necessity. In your spare room, give each wall a specific task. We need a good quality of desk. Shelves are also an essential for storage and of course a comfortable sitting area for reading, relaxing, and receiving clients. Modular office systems are the best option that allows you to configure the the space for costom, professional look. Β If you are in a budget, why don’t you buy a long tabletops and a file cabinet.

β€’ Build some character!

Personalize your room with your own creativity. Let your style shine through! Give it some artistic flair in every corner. You might want to avoid bland office furniture. And if you want, give your office a theme such as calm & simple, brainy & organize, or playful & fun and so on. It’s really up to you. You would like to find a desk that can totally utter your inner personality and character. The main goal is that to enhance your sense of style and find pieces that suits and satisfies your taste. Consider using simple pieces like floating shelves and bookcases, decorate it into your desired personal style.

traditional-display-and-wall-shelves

β€’ Clutters are a huge NO-NO!

A lot of people find it a challenge to keep things tidy. If you have some spare cabinet, why not convert it into a storage central. Closet-organizing systems does have ample drawers for papers, office supplies, and useful documents. Keep everything organized. Another idea is to create a stylish closet organizer by removing it’s doors altogether, and to the help of standard bookcases place some of it inside within the dimensions of the opening to make it look like a built-in wall unit. You can always enhance it’s decoration by adding a fabric of your choice for a more presentable look.

office-organizers

β€’ Style your walls according to your personal style

For this you can use fabric panels, fabric pin boards and cork tiles to cover up your wall, this allows you to pin some interesting images, quotes, inspiration or anything that is about your work and can boost your burning passion. 😘 You may use a wallpaper, you can now have an accent wall in an instant! πŸ‘ Typography is an artwork trend, you can also use it to style your wall. 😊

β€’ Be Creative!

By adding finishing touches fill the space with artwork and selected items that satisfies your soul and creativity. Add your comfy chair and if you like adding ottoman in a corner is great for relaxation during break time. Remember, don’t overwork yourself, the room can also be use as your recreational area by adding some fun stuff like your hobbies, it can be photography, painting, scrapbooking, or even writing a journal or diary. Life is fun when you are doing things you love the most. It doesn’t have to be all about work. Think about happy thoughts and im pretty sure you’ll be in the right track. πŸ‘

I tried this one before, i will highly recommend this smoothie for somebody who is a beginner to green smoothies. It does taste good. πŸ‘

If you cannot tolerate the mixed fruit and veggies juices you can always switch and try other options like Fruit Infused Water and/or also popularly known as Detox Water! 😘 I searched about it online and i find these drinks very easy to do, colorful, and it makes us drink a lot more water. Detox water is so much better than juicing because it doest require any fasting. I admit that i am one of those people who are struggling to drink the proper amount of water everyday because when i started to drink about a glass i feel like im going to vomit πŸ˜₯ and its no good at all. And so, thanks to this fruits to make our water a lot healthier. Here’s the recipes and here we go! 😘

Vaseline Healthy White Instant Fair VS SkinWhite Advanced Whitening Lotion

IMG_20150701_154617-picsay

Hello everyone! πŸ™‹ It’s not friday yet but im back! Yey! 😊 I decided to post something today so suddenly i just though of it a while ago.xD (haha, pardon this part im so having a black space at the moment) πŸ˜‚ This post is about instant whitening lotions! πŸ˜‰ I just realized that i am actually using different lotion for the past two months.xD

Kojic soap is badly drying my skin right now so i need some good lotion to keep my skin moisturized. Good thing there are Vaseline and Skin white that i purchase last April. πŸ‘ The moment i purchased these products my hopes has gone higher as well as my expectations.xD Instant whitening lotions are really trendy these days, and so a lot of people find it promising. Well for me im looking forward to witness the instant whitening effect of these two. 😊

Here’s SkinWhite

According to its label, it has SPF20 with SYNCHROwhite action (I don’t even know what it means.xD πŸ˜‚) it has vitamins such as B3, B5, and vitamin E. It also claims it can whiten your skin in 7 days. Oh, sounds good. isn’t it? I got mine in a local mall around my area. It only cost me PHP 71 for 50ml. 😊

Here’s Vaseline

It cost me PHP 110 for 100ml. The label states it has Skin micro reflectors (once again i don’t really know this science stuffs. πŸ˜‚ well, google will always be useful.xD ) This product has a Triple Sunscreens and it promises an instant fairer skin that keeps getting fairer. πŸ‘

SkinWhite lotion:

It is white in color, creamy texture and a usual scent, for me the fragrant is just right there’s nothing OA. πŸ˜‰

Vaseline

IMG_20150701_154117-picsay

Vaseline has a bit sticky consistency. It is slightly pinkish color, the smell is sweet not over empowering. πŸ‘

When i started using these lotions, i didn’t see any drastic instant whitening. πŸ˜₯ It made me kinda dissapointed.xD I was really expecting a great instant whitening effect but when i applied it to my skin, it looks like a regular lotion.xD

Since im using these products for the past two months i can say that it is just a good moisturizer.

I find SkinWhite better, because when i use it, it doesn’t feel sticky and it’s not heavy as well. Vaseline is really oily and heavy, every time i apply it to my skin i feel like im always sweating. πŸ˜₯ It will even get worst when your outside on a humid weather. πŸ˜₯

I didn’t include swatches and/or before and after pics of my skin with the product on it, because i was not convinced of it’s instant whitening effect. πŸ˜₯

PROS:
β€’ Both cheap and widely available.

β€’ I love it’s fragrance.

β€’ Both products has sun protection.

CONS:
β€’Not convincing instant whitening effect. πŸ˜₯

β€’ Doesn’t whiten my skin. πŸ˜₯ Well, I believe that skin whitening itself is a case to case basis, it doesn’t work on me but it might work for you.

I give SkinWhite a 7 πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– 7 out of 10.

While i will give Vaseline a 5 πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– 5 out of 10.

That’s it for this post. πŸ‘
I suggest that if you love these kinds of lotions, purchased those are from Japan, Korea and Thailand. I heard a lot of positive comments regarding on their instant whitening products. πŸ‘

See you in my next post. πŸ™‹
