Rock N’ Flow: LiFE Yoga Pool Party Part 3

It’s my third #yogapoolparty at LiFE! You’d think by now things would be more of the same, but far from it. Save for the venue—The Palace Pool Club because where else—LiFE Yoga introduces fun new activities each time. The February yoga pool party had Vinyasa and NIA. The May pool party had Paddleboard Yoga, Kundalini, and Poi Dancing. This September, it’s Rock N’ Flow and Acroyoga with some live art and drum music.

Liza Soberano is the new Maybelline Girl (and some ’90s references)

Not since Marvin Agustin and Jolina Magdangal have I really been a fan of any other local loveteam until LizQuen. The few times I’ve caught Enrique Gil and/or Liza Soberano, on screen or in person, have convinced me that these two belong to an increasingly rare breed of Filipino celebrity: that which genuinely has what it takes. The most recent movie I watched with my family was their romantic dramedy Every Day I Love You. It was cute, and additionally cool because it’s set near our house in Negros and the cast spoke some Hiligaynon. Liza, especially, just lights up the screen with her childlike charm and radiant beauty. No surprise then, that Liza Soberano has just been chosen as the newest Filipina endorser of global makeup brand, Maybelline New York.

L’Oréal Paris and Watsons organized an exclusive and luxurious hair date with a select group of Filipina influencers. The invite couldn’t have come at a better time. From age 22 on, the only time my hair wasn’t some shade of red was in 2014 when I gave it a year’s rest. Just check out some of my hair color “adventures,” and imagine all the damage it had to withstand… – L’Oréal x Watsons Hair Color Party

Hannah Kong Débuts Collection

In this era of haste and instant gratification, fewer things take time and handiwork to create. Fewer still are those who approach the creation of such things with reverence. One of them is 29-year-old designer Hannah Kong, who recently launched her debut collection at Aruga by Rockwell. Dean & Deluca provided the hors d’oeuvres to go with the elegant Parisian theme.

Fun In The Sun | Summer Pool Party

The sun and I seldom get along. For most of the time, I feel encumbered by its bright orange heat. There are days, however, when summer’s vapors rise high enough to form clouds that calm the sun’s harsh rays. Just then, it becomes the perfect time for something like a pool party: a time to let all worries float away.

LiFE Yoga: Newfound Love

After years of non-committal dilly-dallying, I found myself finally ready to bend over backwards for love. Love of self, that is. Much has been said about today’s fast-paced, frenetic way of life, and how much we need to be able to get away from it all and take care of ourselves once in a while. I have found my happy place, my haven for when things get too stressful. LiFE Yoga is a vibrant community of folks with a shared passion for mindfulness, art, music, and good food.
