A few weeks back, Novuhair organized a press conference to announce their newest endorser, Abby Asistio. It was such an inspiring day since she got to share her story about her illness, alopecia. Alopecia is a hair loss problem that some people are suffering from. As early as the age of four, Abby knew what it was like to be without hair. Diagnosed with alopecia areata, a condition that causes patches of hair loss around the body, Abby has lived through the entire process of experiencing hair fall: losing it little by little, and then deciding to shave it all completely last year. She has even tried other hair loss remedies as she lived in the US for several years, including chemical-based products that have resulted in negative side effects.
To all our surprise, Abby now enjoys the growth of her hair. It’s not as long as how most people would want their hair to be but it’s getting there. Alongside with Fanny Serrano, she is more than happy to share the remarkable change in her life with Novuhair.
This year she was highlighted as one of the top 41 best vocalists on The Voice Of The Philippines as one of its chosen contestants out of thousands of aspirants. Also a finalist of the Dove Real Beauty Campaign and one of Meg magazine’s 30 Young Achievers, Abby has made it one of her life goals to be a voice for those with alopecia areata. “I am honored to be chosen as brand ambassador to Novuhair. This new platform will help me to continue my advocacy to share my music and life story,” says Abby.
Since using Novuhair, Abby has experienced remarkable results. Visible signs of hair growth appeared within five months of use – and this is after years of baldness caused by alopecia areata. “The strands of my hair are thicker and more healthy-looking. My scalp is clearly nourished and invigorated. When it comes to hair growth, nature is on my side with Novuhair,” says Abby.
This post ain’t entitled star struck for no reason. Well, these were taken the day Phil Younghusband tried to photobomb on me while taking outfit shots. Yes, PHIL YOUNG-F-ING-HUSBAND. Arnie, Kat & I were out to take outfit shots at The Venice & during my turn, Kat wanted me to do all sorts of poses to make this entry more fun. So what I did was to jump & jump & jump until we get that nice crisp jump shot but we did not.. apparently, someone at my back tried to jump along with me. Kat was pissed & even said “may photobomber” but to our surprise, it weren’t just anybody. IT WAS PHIL YOUNGHUSBAND. Shet. Laglag panty, please lang! The funny part is that we all literally froze to death & even did a quick staring game with them. Kahiya levels cause they were having fun while kami, star struck ng sobra. Hayayay… WHY DID WE NOT HAVE A PHOTO WITH THEM.. WHY??? Oh well, I just wanted to share that embarrassing moment. Huhu. Sana maulit. Chos!
This is the season where I don’t find any trend appealing. I think fashion is just too experimental nowadays and you’ll never know which fad is up next. If there would be anything I’m really into lately, it would be basic black & white pieces. I’m glad that finally, the basic in me is making its way to the limelight. Not that I no longer want paandar outfits, it’s just that I want to maximize every piece in my closet. I want them to be something I would use over and over up until they give up on me. Of course wearing basics don’t have to be boring! Accessories can make or break your outfit & since I’m addicted to paandar neck pieces lately, I wanna share with you my small collection of Gold Couture necklaces.
My first ever Gold Couture necklace!!
My take on the lion necklace!
Lakas maka-yaman dyamante pieces.
& minsan umaartsy. Hihi.
What do you think of my mini collection? Can’t wait to score moooore!! Special thanks to Geewel Cabungcal for giving me the best deals for my pretty necklaces.
Have you ever loved and lost somebody, wished there was a chance to say I’m sorry.
Can’t you see, that’s the way I feel about you and me, baby.
Have you ever felt your heart was breaking, looking down the road you should be taking.
I should know, ‘cause I loved and lost, the day I let you go. - Intense LSS with this song the other day!!! I miss my S Club days where everything was still simple and plain. I’m dunno if I’m that old already but S Club produced a lot of beautiful songs back in the days. Lakas maka-not-so-boy-band. Hahaha!
Anyway, I’m trying my best to keep up with my backlogs. This outfit was taken the day before I turned my hair brown. :”> It was a good Sunday to look back at. It reminded me of good old days exactly a year ago where everything was just so carefree and prolly a bit hassle as well because of unexpected drama but still awesome nonetheless.
Check out Arnie at the back!! Forever clingy with this girl! Can’t believe I used to “hate” her because of other people’s influence when in fact she’s the exact opposite. Now, I love her to bits!!!
Spent the night with two of the best people I know. I love how I managed to have three best girlfriends back when I was in grade school, high school & college. I’m never gonna get tired of mentioning them here & thanking them for having my back any time, any day. Choosing the right people in your life is pretty crucial and I’m guilty of making wrong choices in the past. But I think it was a good experience too cause once you remove the weeds, you let the seeds grow.
Scored these babies for an amazing deal! I love how crisp white shoesies could be. I think I should also get myself a pair of high pumps, don’t you think? My old one is pretty worn out already.
