I do it Twice a Week!

Women achieving their goals, independently having the world go round on her palm while keeping her competitors at their toes, have a secret – an arsenal to battle every Tom, Dick and Harry out there.

You see, when you are a girly girl but one of the boys, you gotta look like a girl, think like a man and act like a boss.

Running an entire house, running behind a butt-naked toddler, and running on a work deadline is like running under the red traffic light – I have to keep up on my game. Press the gas pedal harder (you can’t turn back now, you’re in the middle of the intersection), pray (that you would not hit on a hot motorcycle excited to cross before the green lights on), hope (that no CCTV camera is installed somewhere nearby, or worse, a hidden MMDA officer seeing everything insight with a grin upon his face), and have faith (that the auto wouldn’t overheat, no tires would go flat and that you gas up enough fuel, you would not go empty).

See? It’s hard to live a Bonnie and Clyde lifestyle of crime, so I don’t. But the suspense, the thrill, when you are a woman, is the same.

Hello! My name is Gerilen, work at home, mom to toddler and newborn, exclusively breastfeeding without pump, and no nannies – welcome to chaos!

The world is nuts, my sanity should’ve left me the moment I became a mom but it didn’t – that’s how weird Mother Nature is. Sh*t? Seen in, smelled it, touched it. Is that why the things that didn’t kill you will make you stronger?

Maybe not, because like every smart chic in town, I have secrets. Arsenals that has been passed on generation by generation, women to women.

It’s not just schedule, women called it night rituals and morning routines. It’s a lifestyle and we breathe by it. And when you have more shoes than your feet, morning routines and night rituals aren’t enough. There are things you should schedule on a longer pace, because you can’t let the donkey stride like an elephant, can you?

If you want the usual shot (morning routines and night rituals), get out of here, and search on YouTube. There are tons and tons of videos you could play everyday for the rest of your life.

But If you’re looking for that special ingredients to make your mechanism run the world, (or if you’re just nosy, I don’t mind) then read on…

Now, I’ll share to you things I do twice a week to feel a deeper sense of sexy, to incline myself on a healthier clean lifestyle, and have confidence to battle life.

1) Skip wearing foundation – I let my skin breathe. It’s the least that I could do after being tired and for the constant lack of sleep. While I’m at it, I also

2) Exfoliate including face and lips- I use organic exfoliator like

Human Heart Nature purifying facial scrub and detoxifying mask + scrub for face,

Cure Natural Aqua Gel for face and neck, dry patches: knees, elbows, ankles, and

lemon, sea salt, brown sugar, wild honey

homemade body scrub from available kitchen ingredients – I also love not just the bitter taste, but the aromatic smell and smoothness of coffee as body scrub.

For the lips and face, I use overripe fruits and transform it to delicious lip scrub like this

strawberry-honey scrub. Heads up – sunscreen’s micro ingredients are hard to wash off with just regular cleanser and exfoliating twice a week will help lessen blockage of pores that causes blackheads and whiteheads.

3) Hair Treatment – I make my hair happier with these twice a week!

Keratin Treatment

Human Heart Nature Sunflower Beauty Oil.

That’s it for being the baddest pretty and pink, but to be bloody deadly?

4) Betadine® Feminine Wash – the foundation of confidence and sexiness for women is for having a feminine hygiene routine. You can’t feel sexy no matter how expensive your stilettos are when you are not protected feminine discomfort and irritation down there now, can you? Mind you, that itchy feel? It’s caused by germs and bacteria, which can lead to infection as well – talk about defeat: self-conscious (Is hunk smelling that fish too?), distracted (The urge to scratch-until-it-bleeds struggle is real!) and simply the un-sexy (I’m fat anyway!) feeling!

It’s a feminine hygiene habit for women who want to experience less irritation and be more confident and sexy. It can also help lessen odor for that extra confidence boost. Even during and beyond the dreaded RED DAYS, BETADINE® Feminine Wash delivers that clean and sexy feel for an irritation-less week.

Ladies, Clean is the new Sexy! And BETADINE® Feminine Wash is here to help us conquer the world, guard our territories and claim our rights to be sexy!

The world is wired weird, and so does we – we are feminine, soft, humble, beautiful but it never means we are weak, we are strong!

No, I didn’t let my milkshake bring all boys in the yard but I agree on Betty White.

“Why do people say “Grow some balls”? Balls are weak and sensitive! IF you really wanna get tough, grow a vagina! Those things take a pounding!”

Monthly period. Pregnancy. Birth Pain. Breastfeeding. Mothering.

And it’s true, the things that didn’t kill you will make you stronger. (I imagine my heart surgery scar, stretch marks and Caesarian incision pulsating while having Queen B., Beyonce perform “Who Run The World” in the background) Ooh, girls love drama!

Go ahead! Kiss and tell!
