Payless Comfort Plus by Predictions in Karmen Pump Review and First Impression


A merry merry Christmas to me because today I just found a stiletto like shoes for beginners and it is a Karmen pump of Comfort Plus by Predictions that I bought in Payless store which recently opened their shop near in my place (lucky me). Actually I had no plans in buying this baby heels but when I tried it I knew I had to buy it, I fell in love with it which is super duper comfortable on my feet and it feels like I am wearing my running shoes that has heel in it (excuse my oa reaction can’t help it lol). I haven’t had any closed heel before because I’m afraid to get stumble when walking with it, but promise this shoe will not fail me in the future.

This Karmen pump costs Php 995.00 and I chose nude color that can match outfit from casual to semi-formal wear. It has 2 ½ inches high heel which is good for girls who just starting to wear heels and want to get used on heel. 

According to its label:

  • memory foam insole – cradles foot for lasting comfort, which I already experienced while trying out their already break in display which really comfortable around my toes.
  • flexible outsole – for natural movement, and I can actually dance and run with it
  • natural shape – for comfortable fit

For me this brand that claimed to have a comfort while wearing is true to their marketing offer and should be followed by local brands that also sell with the same price (or equally expensive price) but disappoints you when already wearing it.

Pros:

-very comfortable (lalo na sa hindi sanay mag-heels katulad ko)
-can easily break in (kakabukas lang ng store na ito pero ung size ng display maluwag na compared sa stock)
-looks durable and it seems really durable (did I make sense heheh)
-simple design but very classy
-can match jeans, pants, skirt
-very sexy to wear (feeling Kathryn Bernardo or Jane Oneiza ang peg pag suot mo ito)
- half sizes are available
-easily to maintain and clean

Cons:

-a little bit pricey
-shop in the country is limited (but they will soon open an online store)


My recommendation is 9 out of 10 for this pump and mind you there is no need for me to wear foot socks or stockings to secure comfort for longer hours of wearing it. So if you are looking for a heel for your event this one is bang for the buck (tama ba ang idiom ko, correct me if I am wrong sa comment section, pati na rin ang mga wrong grammar and conjuction)

Aiming 50 Kg in 2015


bathroom scale, 50 kg

All I want for Christmas is to lose more weight hehehe, right now I am weighing 52 to 55 kilograms. I put the bracket because every time I weigh myself the result is up and down from that number. But I am hoping that next time I weigh in it will be close to 50 kilogram next year (para mas malapit sa katotohanan). I am really determined since I already lost some weight from my starting of 60 kilogram when I start to lessen my intake calories plus some home work out.

my current frame


Here’s what my usual food in my diet:

1. Sweet potato – has 86 calories per 100 grams and I usually bought 1 kilograms of this which I can consume for almost 2 days (tipid di ba).

2. Hard boiled egg – has an average of 78 calories, but I seldom eat this not only it has higher cholesterol content I sometimes distaste it (nakakasuya, umay, sated)

3. All meat and chicken - no need to explain this aside from its protein content I love it.

4. Pandaysal (for foreign reader it is a Filipino kind of bread called pandesal but has a moringa o malungay leaves which has many benefits in health)

5. Green tea – anti oxidant and helps metabolism to work faster (basta magaling daw itong magpapayat)

6. Water melon – I love love love water melon it is a great substitute too for craving sweets plus it makes me full (kahit ito lang kainin ko habang buhay okay na okay lang ako hehehe)

7. All vegetable recipe – especially pinakbet recipe without rice (read my no rice diet article for more of this)

8. Kankunis tea – a laxative tea that promises to lose weight but it’s not the reason that I take this; it’s the effect to take a bowel in the morning (especially pag naparami ang nakain ko ng nakaraan, it feels I disposed all of it in the morning, wait for my review of this)

9. C-Lium Fibre – just starting to take this

10. Apple Cider Vinegar – usually in the morning which helps me drink more water in the morning

11. Water (pinaka-matipid sa lahat)


I think this is all I can think of right now and I will update this post and add some if I recall foods in my diet that can help me lose weight, feel fuller and energize at the same time. And if you have some ideas and suggestions that are effective to help me lose weight then write it below in the comment section. Bye (kaya ko to, kailangang kayanin ko, hindi pwedeng hinde, wish me luck).

Weird Weight loss Product You Can Find Online


Ever since I learn how to use the Google to find the answer about anything, weight loss is my number 1 in my queries. And actually I am willing to stash some cash for my weight loss if it means shortcut and no struggle. But I think you need also to make a research about the weight loss product if it really works before you buy it or waste your money for a crappy one.

Below is the weird product I found online that promises weight loss:

weight loss, fitness

1.Magnet Silicone Ring 

– it is actually a magnet coated by a silicone in a ring and you need to put it in your toes. It promises change in metabolism process, adjust endocrine system, increasing blood flow and etc. Seriously, how can one lose weight with this thing and how come magnet works with non-metal. I just can’t see the sense of it to work and adjust the metabolism of our body.

weight loss, fitness

2. Abdominal Respiration Device 

– they say it is abdominal breathing exerciser and is a breakthrough product for respiratory fitness training, which works to improve the strength of your lungs and slim your waist, face, and reduce abdomen. Whoah, this one makes sense but can’t you do it also without this gadget by contracting your abdominal muscle in and out.
weight loss, fitness

3. Slimming Patch 

– this one promises you lo lose weight by just putting it in your belly. Its main ingredients are Sophoricoside, Catechin, Capsaicin, Caffeine, Sallcornia herbacaa. The only familiar for me is caffeine that can be found also in coffee and tea but the rest I had no idea.

weight loss, fitness

4. Slimming Navel Stick Magnetic Weight Loss 

– this seems like slimming patch in no.3 but uses magnet like in no.1. I don’t know what is the logic behind this weight loss product, does magnet play important role in slimming? If it does why don’t we just grab any magnet and put it in out body.

weight loss, fitness

5. Slimming Vibration gadget 

– it looks like this one works like a massager in parts of your body. But the question is will you lose weight or develop muscle gain using this one?

I actually find all these products in Aliexpress and all of them sell like a hotcake base on their feedback. All my opinion here is purely from my logical sense although I find it weird; it may or may not work for those people who purchase these products. So do your own assignment and investigate before you buy them. And maybe you are wondering if it is safe to order from Aliexpress my answer is yes just find the right seller that has a good feedback ( Ang binili ko nga pala ay cellphone case ng Mi3 dahil bihira lang ang nagbebenta nito sa Pinas ).

That's it! If you have any suggestions, feedback, critic, correction just comment it below. Hope you enjoy this post. Bye!

How to Prevent Hair Fall after Shampooing




hair fall comb, hairloss

Hey guys, do you have lots of hair fall after taking a bath or when you have to comb your hair in a hurry. Well I do and it looks like I had a cancer or something sick that makes anyone scare and worry about my health simply because I just comb my hair (joke only I'm just exaggerating). And if you also suffer the same dilemma then I guess you need to read the rest of this post.

Here’s what you need:

-Towel (to remove excess water from hair)
-Comb with big teeth and space from each other.
-Electric fan

Here’s what you will do to prevent lots of hair fall:

1. remove excess water from your hair with towel
2. face the electric fan (the fan will blow dry your hair, it will also gives volume to your hair)

3. lay your hair in-front of the fan while combing it.
4. start from the bottom of your hair (don’t start combing in the middle part of your hair or near the root.

5. slowly raise your combing if the hair from where you start begins to untangle  
6. if your hair becomes damp or nearly dry you can now flip your hair in the back while facing backward in the fan but still combing

tada....

finish product lol
With this process you can prevent more hair fall from your hair although it is not 100 % free hair fall at least the number is not significance from before.


See the result, it works for me, yahoo!

lesser hair fall

Conclusion:

I think that with vigorous combing the more hair fall I get (especially when I'm in a hurry) while following the steps above I got lesser hair plus my hair feels alive and volumize (hindi na sya flat na parang dinilaan ng kalabaw hehe). 

Note: I don't recommend the frequent use of hair blower that has heat on it or shampooing your hair with warm water because it will only prone to more hair fall. Skip shampooing if you are in a hurry.

Silk Secrets Oil Control Sheet: First Impression + Review




Hey guys, yesterday I went to mall and scout for affordable oil blotting sheet for my face. You may wonder what does oil control sheet does to our face and this is what I know; Oil control sheet or oil blotting paper is a really thin sheet of paper (basically transparent) that absorbs oil to our face. You may also suggest why not use tissue paper instead of this special sheet for our face. Well tissue paper is good but the problem is it also absorbs the foundation or bb cream that we put to our face leaving some awkward color or noticeable cake in our face. It only absorbs oil and it’s no use to absorb sweat in our face. Oil control sheet is very beneficial when you are in a special occasion like wedding, birthday or even party and you do not have to retouch or put some makeup again.

And here is the Silk Secret Oil Control Sheet that I bought from Watson and it cost Php 45.00 or $1 for 100 sheets (pretty cheap right).

Silk Secret Oil Control Sheet


Below is my before and after picture of using Silk Secrets Oil Control Sheet. I did this first impression and review while riding on the public passenger jeep (maraming lakad, mainit, at mainit din sa loob ng jeep) so I can attest to its oil absorbing power. For my face I wear Nichido BB cream (click the link for my review of Nichido BB cream), FS two way cake foundation and some Nichido final powder (while trying their powder in Watson).


Here’s the sheet for 1st try but I ended up using two sheets because of my too much oiliness that day:

Silk Secret Oil Control SheetSilk Secret Oil Control Sheet

PROS:
Very cheap
It has 100 sheets
Cute packaging and very handy
Available in all Watson

CONS:
Sheets are so small (I need two sheets to fully absorbs the oil in my face)

My Verdict:
Although it absorbs oil in my face I am still unsatisfied with using only one because maybe of my big round face. I wish that this sheet is much bigger so that there is no need for another sheet. It has 100 sheets but you need two every time you use it and summarize to 50 usages only. My recommendation would be 7 out of 10 only and if you ask me if I will buy this product again my answer would be no for I will try branded one even if it is a little bit pricey. Anyway I will update this post if I had only minimal oil in my face to give this product the benefit of doubt.


That’s it, and if you have any recommendation for a better oil blotting sheet please don’t hesitate to comment below or if you already use this product and it works for you please do share it in the comment section. Bye and thanks for reading!
