A New Running Sensation

There's a buzz about an innovative new running shoe in the country. New runners and seasoned runners are busy trying on this running sensation, because of the shoe’s unique CloudTec 3D cushioning: a sensation compared to “running on clouds”, due to the innovative design which protects the body against the stresses of running while also helping to enhance performance.

Chris Sports is the official distributor of On-Running. Price: Php 7995 for the Cloudsurfer, Php 8295 for the Cloudrunner. I was torn between the two colors, I'm delighted to have tried both but still undecided which to get. Suggestion?

I'm open on embracing a new and "unknown" brand in search of a better running shoe that can help prevent injury for I'm going to take my running on a higher level next year. I was very impressed on the shoe’s unique feel. The On Running differs from traditional cushioning by absorbing both the vertical and horizontal forces that stress a runner’s body so reducing impact on muscles and joints. The shoe’s flexible sole and low heel activate the postural muscles, providing the cushioning needed to run fast and long, while allowing the foot’s muscles to improve by themselves. This is probably why they say "running on clouds" because it literally feels like it, so soft and light.

Bid Unwanted Hair Adieu

If you want to put an end to your underarm hair woes try Clarity Aesthetic Medical and Dental Center’s Diode-Laser Hair Removal Treatment. Diode-Laser Technology has an unparalleled success rate compared to other hair-removal treatments. Each session guarantees that you’re one step towards permanent underarm hair reduction.

Diode Laser is the most effective way of removing unwanted hair, with an unparalleled clinical success rate.
• Diode Laser is still widely known as the "Gold Standard" for permanent hair removal.
• Light Sheer Diode’s advantage over other laser hair removal treatments? Its longer wavelength penetrates deeper into the skin, destroying hair follicles better, which impairs the hair’s ability to grow back.
• After each session, significantly less hair grows back, resulting in permanent hair reduction.
• Diode Laser can leave your skin smoother and softer.
• For best results, 6 to 8 sessions are recommended. However, result varies on the client and depends on the number of sessions.

About Clarity:
It is a fact that every woman knows—there are so many ways to get rid of underarm hair, yet so most of them fail on so many levels. Tweezing is too time-consuming, shaving can darken underarms, waxing is painful, some laser treatments do not work well, and the list goes on. All of them offer temporary results, and none of them can even lessen the growth of hair. A woman’s common despair: how can I get rid of all this hair?
Clarity Aesthetic Medical and Dental Center, the metro’s most sought-after one-stop beauty shop which offers complete beauty solutions, knows your woes and knows how to put an end to them. Their laser hair removal procedure uses Diode technology, a breakthrough in the field which has an unparalleled success rate. What makes Diode-laser more effective than other laser hair removal procedures? Its longer wavelength weakens and destroys hair follicles, which lessens the growth of hair. Each session guarantees that you’re one step towards permanent underarm hair reduction. Even though one session shows results already, Clarity recommends at least six to eight sessions for best results.
With its team of board-certified doctors, Clarity Aesthetic Medical and Dental Center’s passion is to bring only the best services in dermatology, dentistry and cosmetic surgery, for people who value positive self-image.

Best Purple Gown

Here's a purple gown that won in the recently concluded Miss Resorts World Manila, worn by Liezl Verses. I like the material used by the designer, it was light and flowing, much like the material they use for handkerchief. Liezl, carried the won so well, salute to her!
