Ever Heard Of Edible Cosmetics?

Sometimes, you see (or smell!) a beauty product that’s good enough to eat! Beauty companies have yet to invent this, but the gals at Buzzfeed did find a loophole via natural cosmetics. Watch—it’s so funny!

I’m not gonna lie—I’ve been tempted to taste beauty products before. But after watching this video, the urge is now gone! LOL! I am curious about what that lipstick tastes like though. Do you think it’s the only one girls liked because we’re so used to eating lipstick (even the non-natural kind) already? ♥

At a red carpet event, Buzzfeed asked Hollywood actresses what advice they would give young women. There were so many gems shared here, but one of my favorites was from Anna Farris. She said, “It’s so easy to spread the message of being yourself, but actually, sort-of implementing it in your own life is difficult. I think it takes a long time to find what makes you happy and what your goals are.” Watch her clip at the 0:49 mark!

If I were to give young women advice, it would be to pay attention your intuition. That quiet voice that’s guiding you—trust and honor it. Listen carefully to what it has to say before making your decisions. You don’t necessarily have to follow it if your heart really wants to go the other way. You just need to listen, so that you’re aware of the consequences (or awesomeness) that can come from your choices. It’s one of my secrets to living life with no regrets.

New Fave: Keratin Complex Vanilla Bean Hair Treatment

I was watching this video the other day and I found it super hilarious! Loved the reaction of the guy (at the 0:51 mark) when the girl flipped her hair. He was totally mesmerized!

I’ve worked as the beauty editor for Cosmo Philippines for several years, but I don’t think I’ve (knowingly) tried the hair flip move on a guy—but it would be interesting to see if it works. Before I say “challenge accepted” though, I should make sure my hair smells extra good.

It all started with this Keratin Vanilla Bean Hair Treatment that I got at the Jing Monis Salon.

One way to do that is with the Keratin Complex Vanilla Bean Hair Treatment at the Jing Monis Salon (starts at P1,500). It’s supposed to be great for repairing damage from swimming and helps balance dry scalps.

The treatment really helped soften my strands a lot and it got rid of the tiny, dry flakes on my scalp—but what I couldn’t get over was the delicious vanilla scent! It actually reminded me of another beauty tidbit (also learned from Cosmo) about how most men LOVE the scent of vanilla on women. There’s something yummy about the edible scent that just makes them go weak at the knees (it’s supposedly a natural aphrodisiac).

So, yeah…Challenge accepted! Haha, but only because it’ll be fun to see if there’s some truth to these theories about hair flipping and vanilla fragrances! I agree with what one of the girls said at the end of video—you don’t really need these moves. Just sit there and be cute!

What do you think of these “get-the-guy” hair moves? Think you’ll be trying any of them soon for fun? ♥
