Blogapalooza 2016 presents Horizon: Charting the Uncharted

Blogapalooza is the Philippines’ FIRST and LARGEST B2B: Business to Blogger Networking and Marketing Event. This is where Bloggers meet future clients and advertisers.

To give you an idea on how Blogapalooza works;

STEP 1: BUSINESSES PRESENT THEIR PRODUCTS/SERVICES TO THE BLOGGERS DIRECTLY.
STEP 2: INFLUENTIAL BLOGGERS AND ONLINE INFLUENCERS BLOG/POST/TWEET ABOUT THE FREEBIES/ EVENT/ NETWORKING WITH BUSINESSES AND INFLUENCE THEIR READERS/VISITORS.

AyeshaHeart.com was one of the few lucky invited bloggers to be part of Blogapalooza 2016. It is my 1st time to attend as I arrived from Japan just last year, but I’ve been reading a lot of positive feedback about this event since they started last 2011 and I was so jealous to those  who were able to attend the past Blogapalooza events. I said to myself that I will not let this year pass without attending Blogapalooza so when I heard news about the much-anticipated event which to my surprise held earlier than the usual, I checked out all the details that I can get and luckily I got the best news from the Managing Director, Ace Gapuz  ahead of time and YASSS! I’m such a goal getter -> I’m part of the Blogapalooza family!

Prosperity Hall, Elements Centris in Quezon Ave. Philippines May 21, 2016 -#Blogapalooza2016

I arrived early and there were Bloggers signing up at the main entrance. It is hassle-free since all of the Influencers were pre-registered online, thank you to TAG77 who’s in charge of it. They handed me a Yellow bright loot bag with freebies inside, ID and a wrist tag.

Upon entering the hall, there were less booths compared to their previous events but for me this is a THUMBS UP because Bloggers can spend more time to discuss and know more about their brands and services that they are offering.

1. ARLA PH
– Arla is owned by dairy farmers who produces most of our Milk. Arla dairy products are based on cows’ milk of a very high quality. Their booth is eye-catching, I had to go to them first *winks and try their  Fruity Milkshakes. Their Strawberry Milkshake & Arla Cheesy Spread on Pandesal are the bomb! I super love it! 💕 #LetinGoodness 

Guess what? The way of promoting their brand is they will ask you to sign up and voila! They will give you a free product. I got the Cheesy Spread that a lot of people online & offline are raving about.

2. VITA COCO 

TRIVIA: The 1st Vita Coco that was produced was in Brazil then they soon released the  first line of natural coconut water in the US, and officially got the refreshing craze rolling.I always get this whenever I go to the market and this is like sticking a straw in a Coconut.

Sugar Waxing at Whipped Waxing Salon

Sugar Waxing at Whipped Waxing Salon

Whipped Waxing Salon

Sugar waxing – A treatment that uses a combination of sugar, lemon and hot water to remove hair from the root without pulling the skin. ! It is another type of hair removal that uses a thick gel on your skin. It does not stick to the skin but only to the hair. Sugar waxing will remove unwanted hairs without traumatizing the body part during procedure and the best part, the adhesive resembles Caramel and oh, smells so yummy that makes your skin so sweet – you’ll want to eat it! (Double clap!) When I heard about Sugar waxing, I thought it’s a new method but after some research, I found out that this treatment is quite old and has been practiced for centuries in Middle East, Greece and Northern Africa and now it’s starting to become more popular in the United States and the Philippines.

The first two treatments that comes to our mind in getting rid of unwanted hair are shaving and plucking. Reasons are both are inexpensive and less painful compared to laser hair removal. However Shaving leaves your skin a sandpaper-like – it is rough! Ugh  :/ While waxing is painful, often results to skin irritation, hair breakage and worst ingrown hairs – Oh that’s scary  :/ And lastly, there are the expensive treatments that’s making your hair disappear together with your money ^^

Don’t lose hope because there is another way that will put a smile on your face on getting rid of unwanted hair. Come, join me! Continue to read about my experience of Sugar Waxing.  It’s time to learn more about the newest waxing salon in town, my highly recommended and preferred method of hair removal.

Get Whipped the Sweet Way at Whipped Waxing Salon

Ayesha Heart at Whipped Waxing Salon

8 Forbestown Rd., Bonifacio Global City, Taguig, PH – #DareToGetWhipped

– AyeshaHeart woke up very early and prepared for her #daretogetwhipped challenge by her WhippedSalonPH family. Oh, got pampered the sweet way so you better read until the end of this post to know how *winks. I booked an appointment and visited WHIPPED branch at 2nd Floor, Eight Forbes Town Center. I availed the Sugar Waxing: Eyebrow + Underarm. My beauty technician, Ms.Desiree was friendly and gentle throughout the procedure. Had a chance to chat with her about the business and got to know her too. (Yes! Always treat other people the way you want to be treated.)

Get Whipped the Sweet Way

Onto the procedure, the technique uses sugar wax. It has a wax-like consistency and color, but without the sticky resins and chemicals that is found on “strip” or “hard” wax. (Thumbs up!) My beauty tech started with Eyebrow waxing. She first clean the eyebrow area with a piece of cloth tissue and then she applied the sugar wax by a gloved hand in the opposite direction of the hair growth, spread it on the hair and with a flicking motion the hair is gently removed in the direction that the hair grows. I must say my beauty tech masters the skills of flicking *winks.

After a couple of minutes she started waxing my underarm with the same procedure and finish it with plucking and twee zing. Lastly she applied a moisturizer.

The procedure was done in less than 15 minutes and it clearly shows in my pics that it was a relaxing process and I am very satisfied with it. I am very happy with the outcome! I can raise my arms confidently and I feel so clean and pretty. The process can boost confidence 100% and trust me you’ll be more proud of your underarm ha-ha. You should try this too and let’s all raise and shine to confidence!

For post-sugaring, I’ve read that we need to avoid hot water, not to wet pits for about 48 hours, gym activity.

According to salon founder, Ms. Bing Fabi, it is by far one of the gentlest method that is alternative to lasers. She opt for this than traditional waxing because the method allows the hair to be gently lifted than painfully removed and on top of that it has natural ingredients so say goodbye finally to skin irritation hurrah! Hurrah!

To be a candidate for sugaring, the beauty tech suggested to wait at least a month for your hair to grow before doing this procedure. Your hair must be at least a quarter of an inch long so that the wax is able to bind to the hair and pull it out at the root.

Visit the very first salt room in the Philippines at Robinson’s Place Manila 2nd Floor Midtown Wing in front of Esprit Store.

This concept was conceived and inspired by the hundreds of years old Natural Salt Caves of Europe which have been a buzz since researches show that salt miners are rarely, if never sick. With this new found elixir of health the whole world clamored and salt rooms or halo-therapy centers have popped out and are enjoyed by many western countries, as Salt Therapy is recommended for various ailments and illnesses.

Aqua Mineral’s salt rooms are virtually all surface covered with three different kinds of salt – Sea Salt, Dead Sea Salt and Himalayan Salt. All of which have their own unique health benefits to boast and has so many write ups and review about  them.

Aqua Mineral embraces and celebrates the power of nature’s oldest crystal. The Salt rooms provide you a dry, sterile and pollutant-free environment. Salt therapy is safe non-invasive and is naturally anti-inflammatory and enriched with negative ions. The more negative ions you are exposed to, the better and more energized you feel! Salt therapy is recommended as a positive addition to regular medical care and is offered as an alternative and complimentary healing method, thus expanding treatment options.

With this launching of the salt room, the Philippines can now enjoy the privileges of having salt caves like Europe. Visit them at Robinson’s Malate, Gateway Mall and Century City Mall.
