Popi Pals


Starting Nara early on her animal conservation path with POPI Pals: stuffed toys shaped like critically endangered animals native to the Philippines. Each toy is also made using textiles woven by communities in various parts the country (Baguio, Leyte and Las Pinas to name a few). Here’s a little more about them:

Beauty Products I Currently Love

Processed with Snapseed.
You all know that I’m a huge fan of beauty products. Blame it on my years as a beauty editor and currently being a beauty expert for an awesome site like Calyxta.combut I just love when a product does exactly what it set out to do. And these seven beauties fit that description! Here they are in no specific order:

#1 Fab Brows in Dark Brown: If you’ve noticed why my eyebrows have been pretty gorgeous these days, it’s because of this amazing eyebrow powder. This was recommended to me by Patty Laurel and I haven’t switched since. The pigment is rich, yet it looks natural and stays on the whole day! It even has eyebrow stencil guides. You can grab this in any Piandre Salon

#2 Nuxe PH Huile Prodigieuse: I have become a HUGE fan of Nuxe products because everything I’ve used has been a winner! They’re lip balm is amazing at night and their melting shower gel is so luxurious. Their multi-purpose oil which smells faintly of almonds can be used on your hair, face, and body. It smells amazing and gives skin a beautiful glow. Can be purchased in any Rustan’s Beauty Source

#3 Prim Botanicals Mademoiselle Swell Perfume Oil: I was never a big oil perfume fan until I met this little lady. I just roll her on my wrists, nape and base of my neck, and insides of my elbows and I smell clean and gorgeous the whole day. You can grab her in Lanai.

#4 Seba Med Bar Soap: Seba Med is a trusted name for both kids and adults, and I love how this bar soap gently cleans me and my kids without leaving any strong fragrance, greasy residue, or irritations. Can be purchased in any leading department store.

#5 Body Food Balm Around: I recently got a burn from my curling iron (silly, I know) and this balm did an amazing job of healing my skin and I didn’t get a single scar. Here is what Ana Gutch of Body Food has to say about this balm “This beautiful balm is made with months-long infusion of only organically grown herbs and roots and shoots and paired with the healing Tagetes, a local relative of the calendula. A fortified blend was used here of humble hardworking essential oils of ginger, frankincense, eucalyptus, tea tree, elemi, lemongrass and peppermint that clean , subtly disinfect, calm angry inflamed insect bites and minor rashes, and encourage cell self-repair in minor burns and scrapes.” 

#6 Kate Tokyo Sharp Lock Gel Pencil: I’m not usually a fan of eyeliner pencils, but this one does an amazing job of gliding on like butter and staying on till the day is done. It can even be used for tight-lining.

#7 Neutra Organics Lip Tints: I love how these locally made lip tints glide on the skin giving it a healthy flush of color and the best part is that it stays quite a bit leaving you with a gorgeous “your lips but better” pout. Win!

So what are your favorite beauty products these days? I’d love to hear all about them!
