As you will notice, I've been very active the past few days doing yoga, crossfit and gym exercises. I'm not doing this to lose weight, I just wanted to do something productive when I'm not doing makeup job so I tried to get a guava pass membership for a month to try different kinds of exercises. So before my membership for a month expire, which  is tomorrow, I decided to try boxing. Actually I was thinking maybe I could try boxing, then fencing and yoga in a day just for me to used up the the guava pass membership before I had it cut. But after the boxing session I no longer have an energy to do other stuff. I guess I underestimate boxing. LOL. You'll enjoy guava pass if you love yoga, boxing, fencing class, and crossfit because they have a lot of choices for that. I didn't like it because they don't have open gym in Makati but they in Quezon City. I prefer to go to the gym so i can lift weights and work out my legs and butt which is my favorite thing to do. Thus I decided to cut my membership after trying it for a month. But before that, let me enjoy my first time in boxing class.

You can watch the video below if you wanna see how it goes.

Just my tip, if you wanna go boxing in Elorde make sure you have your own gloves because their gloves is so smelly, must be because so many people used it already. I don't have a choice but to rent gloves because I don't own one since I don't do boxing as my hobby anyways. I paid 75 pesos including the bondage.

Boxing is really tiring for me, I guess this is a good exercise if you really wanna lose weight because all of your body parts are being active. I still prefer going to the gym though, however I enjoyed the boxing session I had today.

Thank you for reading my blog and I hope to see you again on my next adventure.

1. Transformers
Name your celebrity crush and you can date her in an hour. You have no reason to look for other girls because they can make themselves look like anyone you fantasized. (Mambabae ka pa talaga? di ka makuntento?)

2. Weightlifters
You have no idea how much weights they're carrying everyday. Just the makeup station itself weighs 15kg with nothing inside, plus the other lights and makeup tools will weigh more or less 30kg in total. It won't be that hard for you if you break their heart because you know they can survive. (kahit anong bigat kaya nila yan. Pasan ko ang daigdig ang peg niyan.)

3. Passionate
Always excited whenever they booked a makeup gig, because they never feel like working at all, they're inlove with their job. They are passionate about it, even if it means standing for long hours even whole day, with no eating in between and facing demanding clients. Their passion is incomparable. (Try mo lang wala naman mawawala kung susubukan mo.)

4. Funny
Makeup artists are not just there to beautify their clients. They're also entertaining their clients specially the brides, to ease the nervousness they're feeling on that big day. So you won't be bored dating them because they were born being an entertainer too. (para kang nasa comedy bar everyday pak! ganern!)

5. Patient
No matter how long the waiting hours is they'll wait because the taping isn't done yet. They have to be there to do the retouch and everything. They wont rush you and will wait for you when you are ready. (Pero huwag mo naman paasahin sa wala at lalong lalo na sa parang meron, sabihin mo agad ng derecho. Ganyan kayo eh! Paasa!)

My friend posted a photo on facebook while picking blueberries and I kinda felt ecstatic like a kid to experience that in real life. I only see blueberries fruit but i have no idea how its trees looked like. My friend was in Kvinesdal Norway for a Holiday that time so i talked to her and asked if i can visit her in her boyfriend's place so i could experience to pick some blueberries since I'm also going in Norway for 2 months vacation. Sound fancy isn't it? 
Finally I'm here!. After 2 hours of Train ride and 20 mins Taxi ride I was able to find their place. And ofcourse I'm so hungry when I arrived so she prepared some food we could eat.

Yay! as you can see she made this blueberry cheesecake. I'm not a fan of cake but I could eat this all because I didn't find eat sweet at all. All I can taste is the blueberry fruit. 

Before heading to her boyfriend's cabin where we could pick bluberries, we had to chill out first after we ate because I'm so full that I can't even walk properly. Lol.
Btw this is their cute house. So clean and tidy inside courtesy of ate Amie ofcourse. I think in general, we Fililipina are so OC when it comes to maintaining the cleanliness of the house.  
Here we go! Time to do some sightseeing first before we finally go to their cabin. Kenneth (Amie's Boyfriend) drove us to here so I could see Kvinesdal on top. Their place is so small I could see all the houses. I learned that there is 6000 population in this area. So small compare to 100 million population in the Philippines. No wonder it's not polluted in Norway. 
Ate Amie, her boyfriend and Me  ofcourse we need to take a groupie. Thank you Kuya Kenneth for welcoming me to your house. 
Here we are. This is where their cabin is located. Near this lake where you can go fishing and ride a boat if you got nothing to do. I took this inside their cabin because the rain started to drop.
Wow! is the firs word i uttered when i get inside their cabin. How can you not be amaze with this place? I feel like I'm in a 5 star resort/hotel or something. I loved the chandelier. 
Last picture inside the cabin before we go out to their backyard for blueberry picking. 
Finally! So this is how blueberry tree looked like in real life, or should i call this a grass. Lol. I was like whaaattt??? Well Norway has a small version of blueberries, because the one we can see at the groceries are bigger than this. But nothing to worry about because it still taste like a blueberry. 

This is all what we got after 20 mins of picking. We almost made it full before we finally go back to the cabin because the rain started to pour hard.

I will be forever grateful for all the people who made this dream of mine possible. No kidding. I will treasure the experience forever. I had an amazing day even if its a bit cold but im not whining just saying because we have a different weather in the Philippines. I could say I'm just one lucky girl who was able to experience things like this. I feel blessed and thankful. 

Cheers for more experience.

This trip was many years in the making. I still can't imagine it happened and I was able to make my dream come true with the help of a good friend of mine. I think it's every girls dream to go visit Paris, not just because it is tagged as the most romantic place in the world but it is also the best shopping place in world for those who's into fashion. 

The Viseart Paris Head Office. Took us 2 hours to find this shop only to know that they are not selling any products because they are under construction. I was a little heartbroken that time. hahaha

Those breads looked delish. I didn't try though because I'm not a fan of bread. 

Tried their crepe and i must say the crepe in Cafe Breton here in Greenbelt is still my favorite. 

Just a glimpse of you from afar is enough. I'm not a fan of expensive bags. 

Oh noes! it's raining. Wasn't able to have the best shot of this famous Eiffel Tower.

 I must say, Paris is always a good idea. I enjoyed the entire trip except that i didn't like that it's raining the whole day we were roaming around. I loved the makeup shopping part. Food was a little bit disappointing because maybe we are unlucky to find the best restaurant. I would suggest that you come visit here during summer so you would be able to enjoy your trip because you are going to walk the entire time of your stay here as the cab fare is very expensive. Take train and tour buses where they would drop you to all famous tourist spot for one day. Oh and by the way I have one regret about this trip. I wasn't able to witness Paris at night where everyone says its where the magic begins. I was too tired the whole day and I can't afford to go out during the night time. All I wanted is to lay on bed and get my very well deserved rest. Well atleast I have another to come back. Who knows... :)

1. Blow dry the hair to create volume and to keep it shiny.
2. Section the hair into two and then secure it with a rubber band. 
3. After sectioning the hair into two, the upper part of the first section, section it into three, the first section has to be a small amount of hair because it will be used just to cover the rubber band. The other two section should be in the same size. Then braid all the four sections as seen on the photo. After braiding, pinch all the braids to create a flow so the hair won't look flat and very elementary.
4. Roll over the lower braid upward and do the same thing with the other two upper braids in an opposite direction (means downward) then place it next (right & left) to the lower braid we finished. Then secure it with bobby pins.
This is how the finished product should look like.
