Every Woman’s Guide to A Glamorous Summer

It is every woman’s goal to always look her best all throughout the year, but once we reach the calendar months of March or April, the pressure is double. Summer is an exceptional time for anyone who loves the holidays, vacations, and bikinis.   

As you plan your getaways, here are some tips on how you can get yourself ready for your most beautiful and glamorous summer vacation:
Glorious Tresses
It’s not only your skin that needs protection from the sun. Use hair care products that have UV protection. Look for products with sunflower or helianthus annuus which is an all-natural UV protectant that does not only protect your hair from the sun. It also acts an emollient which provides and locks in moisture. But, cut down on shampoo so you can allow your scalp’s oil production to re-balance itself which is very important for moisture especially during this season.

{I} is for Inlapidated by Grimm's Monroe

So, my lazy days here have been spent with a guy named Monroe.

Monroe is a kind-hearted, reformed man who strives to protect the loves of his life everytime. And he has a funny knack in doing so. He used to be a monster, but now he is into Yoga, strict diet and Pilates. And he knows how to cook! And more importantly, he is funny. Adorably funny.

Okay okay. I am talking about a fictional character in Grimm. You know Grimm? The TV show which includes all the monsters you can think of (Aswang was featured there) and a hero who protects the world from it. It was sort of like RIPD and I sort of disliked the start of the Grimm season since i saw RIPD first. The concept is kind of the same -- cops who gets the bad guys. The real bad guys as in monsters -- Wesen.

I got hooked with Grimm. I'm catching up with Season2, but the show is already in its 3rd season. So, let's talk about Monroe. Here's a clip. You be the judge. Tell me if he's cute or not.

Those droopy, compassionate…

{H} is for Happy Beaching in Ballybunion

Three days before my birthday, we decided to go on a mini road trip to the beach. Because we're missing the Philippine summer and we're kind of stuck here in Limerick with an 11C kind of weather. Thanks to C's superb travel skills, we have arrived on the beautiful shoreline of Ballynunion Beach! It's like 2-3 hours away from where we live here in Ireland.

But before that, we stopped over at Foynes just to take a sip of the famous Irish coffee. We snacked at O'Regan's Restaurant, a little cafe beside the Foynes Flying Boat Museum.

Irish coffee is actually a cocktail consisted of hot coffee, Irish whiskey and sugar stirred in together and topped with a thick cream. The drink was conceived one wintery night in th 1940s when American passengers passed hopped off from a Pan Am flying boat. To warm up the travelers, chef Joe Sheridan added whiskey into their coffees.

And this is my order down below. It was the most delicious brownie that have ever gone through my mo…
