Living the Good Life

Looking Good, Always with Vivere Salon

Posted by on Sep 30, 2010 in Beauty, Featured, Health

Is it true that when a girl wants to change something in her life, she starts with her hair?  To me it is!  Some of my friends celebrate a semestral break vacation with a new hair cut.  Others want a new hair do after a break-up.  Whatever it is, we girls feel that our hair is a big deal and going to a Salon is a therapy for all of us.  We feel more confident if we look good and the hair...

Flair Photography on Action and Fitness Magazine (Total Fitness)

Posted by on Sep 19, 2010 in Announcements, Art & Photography, Sports

This is another backlog But, I still want to blog about it anyway.  I kinda stopped pursuing my passion for photography.  I got discouraged because I don’t have enough moolah to buy enough gears for my photography.  But, what the heck.  Looking back, I realized I didn’t need those for now.  The camera that I currently have, and my passion and eye for photography are all that I got and I...

Zonked

On a plane from KL to Manila… I was writing an article for my blog flaircandy.com and I was looking for a word that would describe my brain being drained of anything intellectual because of not sleeping straight since I left the Philippines.
