OLA! Starting this work week by sharing the news and my little happy moment as being selected to be an Aveda Ambassador. WOOHOO!!!


It’s a great honor to collaborate and work with a brand that is recognized in 40 countries, having 8,000 locations all over the world and has been around for more than 37 years. It’s older than ME! haha! But most importantly, I love what the brand and their products stand for: BEAUTY WITH A CONSCIENCE! Aveda uses all natural ingredients, advanced botanical innovations and they offer holistic service. Now THAT is professional artistry with a good purpose! And pregnant and expecting mommies to be — THIS IS IT — you don’t need to hop from one store to another reading the product labels nor order online because it’s available in Manila!


Aveda Philippines has introduced the CONNECT AVEDA: Stay and Play Concept in their experience centers. Do you know your CHAKRA? The Aveda consultants a.k.a. Day Makers will help you discover your Chakra journey to find your balance!


Aveda’s Experience Centers is offering their rituals: comforting signature tea, hand massage and hair styling for FREE! It’s an extra service that Aveda is giving ALL of their willing guests so that they can connect with multiple senses and heighten their Aveda experience.


Hand Massage. Who doesn’t love a good hand massage anytime of the day? Ugh what a stress-reliever!


Hair Styling. Aveda offers straight, curls or volume. My choice: VOLUME!!! I wanted to change it up to big sexy hair for a change. The key steps just like make-up: PREP, STYLE and FINISH!


Did you know that before you style your hair you should towel dry it to 80-90% before working it? Thanks Fendi Dudi for all these tips.

To get my hair:

1. PREP with Pure Abundance Style once hair is 80-90% dry. It detangles hair and it protects it!

2. STYLE by applying Volumnizing Tonic at the roots. It will lift your hair then style as needed.

3. FINISH by spraying Pure Abundance Hairspray. It will create a hold to maintain the look and defy humidity.

Remember it’s all natural ingredients so its totally safe for pregnant and paranoid women like ME!!!


New hair, fresh look. Changing up my outfit with the same hair from day to night:  I feel like a different women with AVEDA!


My AVEDA Hair TOP PICK! I like the option of volumnized hair but will always revert to the clean/sleek hair do. And THAT’S where Smooth Infusion comes in!

Checkout the other Aveda Ambassadors I spotted getting the full ritual treatments. Oh so fuuuuun!!! Oh and I finally found the perfect product to have my roots done because Aveda Hair Color is ammonia free and safe for expecting mothers. Now THAT’S definitely BEAUTY WITH A CONSCIENCE and being a responsible proactive mommy! :)
