International Beauty Expert is in Manila, Thanks to Clarence!

What an amazing year to be beautiful! 😀

No reason to procrastinate about beauty now, with all the available services in the metro today, and competing prices, we beauty enthusiasts have no excuse to achieve the best skin care we deserve!


I got invited to the PicoWay beauty technology launch in Clarence MD, and got the chance to meet an international beauty expert!


Clarence Anti-Aging, Slimming and Dermatology Centre, the first and only one in the Philippines to have the PicoWay technology, brings international beauty expert Kristi Burns to the Philippines. Burns is a Clinical Application Manager of Queensland, Northern Territory and New Zealand at Syneron Candela Corporation Australia Pty Ltd. She has extensive background within the beauty, medical and aesthetic skin industries and expertise in skin care and stakeholder relationship development.

Kristi holds an Advance Diploma in Beauty Therapy, a Certificate in Aromatherapy, and a Laser Safety Certificate. In the last 10 years, Kristi specialised on the entire Syneron Candela product range as well as cosmeceutical skin and treatment after care. In her clinical educator role, she works closely with several respected medical physicians and clinic owners both domestically and internationally.


Kristi is currently looking after SyneronCandela customers in Australia and New Zealand. With her excellent understanding of the skin and its behaviour she advises customers on how essential it is to manage the expected results of the different laser procedures performed during various pigmentation disorders, conditions and concerns, acne, vascular irregularities skin resurfacing and tattoo removal treatments.


In 1999, Kristi operated her own Aesthetic Clinic business, and has since worked for several remarkable organizations, where she underwent rigorous training in cosmeceutical active result driven skincare and advanced aesthetic laser, skin resurfacing and IPL procedures. Kristi has been using advanced medical grade technology for over 15 years and became the subject matter expert for Medical Grade Laser’s and IPL devices.

“The coming of Kristi Burns to the Philippines is an honor for Clarence as we both believe that beauty is attainable through state-of-the-art but cost-efficient procedures,” says Dr. Joan Clarence Morallo, head of Clarence MD.





I also happen to score an Underarm PicoWay Treatment! Yay! But to make things more exciting, we had first dibs on witnessing the fast delivery and more effective results of PicoWay Treatment.

One of the bloggers was able to try their PicoWay Tattoo Removal, and the results were astounding!

Dinner with Miss Philippines Earth at Yoshinoya

There was once a time when I dreamt of becoming a beauty queen. I know it’s a long shot, but I think having a dream at a very young age pushes a child to choose and work on a path she knows she will soon reign.

I have joined pageants in high school, and I highly urge girls to go and experience this kind of activity (maybe at least once in their lives). There is just something about beauty pageants that prompts you to be at your best; brew confidence, exude poise and class.; and always be more than just a pretty face.

Back at work, I used to be part of the hosting team to Bb. Pilipinas candidates, that is why meeting empowered women seems like a second nature to me. I love talking to dreamchasers and women of substance. I get so high and happy!

That is why I got really excited when I was invited to meet some of the Miss Philippines Earth 2017 candidates.

Last June 24, I found my Snaky Reed Somerhalder Sky heels prancing in the marble floors of Greenbelt 3. The dinner was held in Yoshinoya.

While waiting, I got served by these delicious entrees from the restaurant.

It was just my second time visiting a Yoshinoya branch, and I was so surprised how lovely and courteous the staff were. The food tasted healthy and were cooked just right. I am obsessed in their red tea by the way! 🙂

Nine candidates arrived that day, and they were exceptionally smart, quick-of-tongue, commanding in presence and beautiful.

They performed, and introduced themselves, and I was left in awe about how young and empowered they are. I highly applaud these girls for chasing their dreams, and for being ambassadors of environmental awareness and preservation of our nature.

I also got the chance to chat and mingle with them. It was fulfilling and amazing because I got to bond and made new friends! Beautiful friends! 🙂
