How to Remove Common Stains

I’m just going to come out and say it; sometimes I can be just plain clumsy. Unfortunately, it always seems to happen when I have a drink in my hand, or I am holding a bottle of sauce. These situations used to result in stains all over the home, but with a few tips which I will share below, these common stains became a thing of the past.

Before we start, it is important to remember that you should never rub a stain. This will only make the stain worse. Instead, always gently blot from the outside in.

Red Wine

First up it’s the always enjoyable to drink, and never enjoyable to clean, red wine!


  • When the spill occurs, either on your carpet or your outfit, reach for the table salt.
  • Cover the entire stain with salt and let it sit for about an hour.
  • The salt will work to absorb most of the red wine stain.
  • Once it has finished, blot a little club soda over what is left to lift out any remaining stain.
  • If you spilled the stain over wooden floors, be sure to use a gentle floor cleaner so that you don’t take off any polish.


Next, it’s the always messy chocolate. Whether it’s cake, a chocolate bar, or even hot chocolate, while the taste is good, the stain is sour.

  • Start by gently scraping away as much of the chocolate as you can.
  • Run the material under cold water or soda water (preferable if you can)
  • Once the majority of the stain has been removed, use a few drops or liquid dishwashing detergent and some warm water to gently agitate the stain until it lifts
  • Once the stain is removed, rinse with cold water and then put in your regular wash


If you are like me and get a bit jittery after a few cups of coffee, then you likely have coffee stains on your sleeves.

  • Lay out the stain over a clean towel
  • Sprinkle active laundry powder or baking soda over the stain
  • Dip a separate clean towel in warm, clean water and gently agitate the stain
  • Once the stain has been removed, rinse the garment with cold water and place for regular washing.

When removing chocolate or coffee, it is important to remember that it may not work the first time, and may only lift most of the stain. If this occurs, don’t be afraid to try two of three times until you are satisfied with the results.

I may have only been able to help you with three stains, but for me, they are the most common. I hope they help you stay fashion forward and stain free!

Six Types of Panties Suitable for All Occasions

While you might wear a pair of thong panties when heading to the office or out on the town, most women do not wear this style every day of the week. Some of the different styles and types of panties for women are perfect for wearing with everything from a little black dress to your favorite pair of jeans.


One of the more popular types of panties is the simple thong. Made from lightweight material, it usually features a front panel that provides some coverage and a thinner piece of material that sits between your butt cheeks. Though similar to a thong, a g-string features even less fabric.


Briefs are the best option for women who want maximum comfort and coverage. These panties have a classic design that features a higher waist that sits at or on your belly button. You can choose between higher and lower cut legs for more or less coverage too.


Boyshorts are the female equivalent of boxer shorts. Each pair has a flat top that sits just beneath your belly button and legs with a lower cut. Though the design provides more coverage, many women love the way these panties hug their figures and how comfortable a pair feels.


High-cut panties serve as an alternative to traditional briefs. The design sits lower on your body and stops at just above your hip bones. Though the backs of high-cut panties are similar to the backs found on briefs, the fronts have higher cut legs.


The hipster is one of the newest types of panties, but it has a number of fans because of its comfort. Companies like Mamia panties design hispters to hug your curves and draw attention to your hips. The fabric sits close to your hips and has shorter leg openings that keep the panties from sagging.


The bikini is one of the top choices among young women because it looks similar to a pair of briefs but is much skimpier. Bikinis typically sit lower on your stomach than hipster panties do and have a standard length that fits more comfortably.

Whether you need panties to wear under a sheer skirt for a night on the town, or you want something comfortable to wear with jeans, you’ll find some great types of panties that go with everything in your wardrobe in lingerie stores.


Hydrating Make-up Remover by Eau Thermale Avène

Eau Thermale Avène introduces hydrating make-up remover to Filipino women!

Cosmetic products exist to help women improve their facial features or cover imperfections. But while an average woman uses 12 different products everyday—which all in all contains about 170 ingredients according to a research by U.S. organization Skin Deep—their desire to look good might do more harm than good especially when proper skin regimen is not practiced.

This is the very reason why Eau Thermale Avène—the leading dermo-cosmetic brand in Europe—recently invited some of the country’s most prestigious beauty and wellness bloggers and members of the media at the Salon Beauvoir in Makati, City to educate them on how to properly care for their skin before, during and after applying make-up.

Through a make-up learning session with Chuchie Ledesma, an international makeup artist, participants of the event were able to learn basic makeup in preparation for this coming Valentine’s Day.

However, Harry Tsai—the General Manager of Karihome Inc. which distributes Avène products to the Philippines—said that while putting on makeup can enhance their beauty, knowing how to properly remove all the ingredients of the cosmetic product on the face will go a long way in ensuring a “more beautiful version of themselves.”

“Beauty comes naturally, that’s why most people make beauty an investment,” Tsai emphasized. “Filipino women should do the same. The application of cosmetic products can enhance their facial feature. But at the end of the day, they need to remove all these heavy makeup and make sure that they allow their skin to breathe.”

During the event, Eau Thermale Avène highlighted its New Formula Micellar Lotion as the perfect companion for Filipino women who are looking for the best make-up remover in the country.

“Many women in the Philippines are finding new and effective ways to look their best, and what better way to match this than by introducing a makeup remover that is powerful enough to get rid of the strongest ingredients found in cosmetics,” Tsai said. “With this product, Filipino women who have sensitive skin can still wear their favorite makeup without worry of skin irritation after washing it.”

Eau Thermale Avène’s New Formula Micellar Lotion has a top-of-the-line makeup removing efficacy. Its micellar cleansing agent captures skin impurities like a magnet. It is proven effective on waterproof and long-lasting cosmetic products applied on the face, eyes and lips.

“Its upgraded Micellar Lotion has a unique formula that adapts to even the most sensitive skin,” Tsai said.

What’s best about the Micellar Lotion, according to Tsai, is its 93-percent Avène Thermale Spring Water content which soothes and softens the skin, and restores its natural balance. This ingredient is medically proven to contain healing properties—soothing, anti-irritating and anti-inflammatory, as well as anti-free radicals—that make it suitable for allergic reactions, burning, stinging, itching and tingling sensations.


“Because of its hydrating action, the Micellar Lotion guarantees comfort for all skin types and greater hydrating efficacy than other brands,” Tsai said. “Compared with the old formula, the New Micellar Lotion has more effective and gentler emollient properties. In just three hours, the users will be able to see visible hydration in their skin.”Eau Thermale Avène is deeply rooted in dermatology and hydrotherapy, with its products being supported by more than 300 clinical studies. The company offers high-quality skincare products to customers all over the world, bringing its 260 years of expertise in managing all skin types.

Tsai concluded, “Cosmetic products give more benefits to women on top of an improved facial feature. For some, this could be a way to be more presentable when talking to clients; to others, this could be as simple as feeling more confident about themselves. However, Filipinas should bear in mind that real beauty emanates from within; beauty will always be what’s under those heavy makeups—and we’ll help them improve their features in the most natural way.”

Avene is available in select Watsons and Mercury Drug stores. For more details, please visit Avène’s Facebook page at

Ways to Shop for Casual Clothing

Shopping for clothes is not the easiest chore in the world for certain individuals. Some people are extremely picky when it comes to their clothing. Others have sizes that make it difficult to find clothing that fits. Whatever the case may be, there are some things you can do to make shopping for clothing easier for yourself if you traditionally have a hard time with it. It helps if you do a little preparation before you head off to the store. You will most likely have some problems if you simply go to a store having no idea what you are doing. Here are some ways to shop for casual clothing.

1. What will you be buying?

Some people like to go to a clothing store having no idea what they will be buying. They like to browse the various racks to see if they will stumble across something nice that they never would have thought about previously. However, there are other people who want the shopping experience to be over as soon as possible. They just want to get in and get out. Here is what you need to do if you fall into this category. Make a list of different styles of clothing that you are interested in. You might also want to make a list of brands if you care about that sort of thing. This will help you stay focused so you do not get sidetracked looking at things you did not come there to buy. It will also prevent you from forgetting anything important.

2. Large selections

Most people do not like to drive all around town when they are shopping for clothes. Doing this wastes a great deal of time and energy. It is always preferable to do your shopping at a store that offers you the biggest selection possible. This will enable you to finish all of your shopping in a fraction of the time that it would take if you need to go to multiple stores. Click here to see an example of a casual clothing store with a huge inventory.

3. Wait for sales

Smart shoppers save themselves enormous amounts of money by being smart about their purchases. One of the ways that they do this is by waiting until certain stores have their sales. For example, shopping after Christmas is ideal because stores want to get rid of many items that did not sell before the holiday. They are usually marked down considerably.


Why You Need to Undergo Skin Exfoliation

Early age of aging is a scary thing. Don’t get me wrong, I am not afraid to grow old! But it’s scary to look like 40’s when I am still in your 30’s! Opps – okay, I am close to my 40’s na! Do I look like my age?  I tried to hide it though but I guess its evident in my face and body posture.  I hope not!

Skin exfoliation is important to to remove dead skin cells in our body. I was happy to be able to review Sugar Scrub by Amethy.



Here are some good points on why you need to undergo exfoliation:

  • Slow cell regeneration. It is a fact that as we age, cell regeneration slows down. The process of shedding dead skin cells is also affected. Hence, when the old skin cells pile up, your skin will definitely look dull and dry.
  • Prevent clogged pores.  One problem often experienced by women is pimples. This is quite troublesome especially when you are at the stage of wanting to flaunt your beauty. With exfoliation, this possibility is minimized or even taken out of the picture.

The human skin indeed has its own natural process of showing its beauty and glow. However, this function is diminished as the human body aged. So if you want to look younger and vibrant, maybe you just need an extra help and that is exfoliation.


What’s the Best Gift You Got for the Holidays?

My son was very excited to open the gifts he got last Christmas. He’s a teen now so what he got are no longer toys and other kiddie stuff. His godparents admitted to me that they are challenged with what to give a kid that is already a teen. He got fashionable clothing that makes him look like a little man and he seems to enjoy mixing and matching his clothes now too. He was also very excited to open one of the gifts which revealed bose ae2 headphones! We think that it’s too much for him and his daddy is pretty much interested
