Angkor Wat

Fashionistas,

If you consider yourself a film buff, then you probably recall Angelina Jolie in her iconic role as Lara Croft swinging through ropes and getting into all sorts of scrapes, set in such gorgeous location. Or if you are fan of famed Hong Kong director Wong Kar-Wai, his most famous movie, “In the Mood for Love” had its penultimate scene shot in ruins as well.

The location shoot for those two movies were both done in Angkor Wat, Cambodia. Angkor Wat’s magnificence and impressiveness surpasses that of the pyramids of the Pharaoh or the Taj Mahal of Shah Jahan. Angkor Wat is located about six kilometres north of Siem Reap, which is a popular resort town and at the same time, serves as a gateway to the Angkor Wat region.

Built between A.D. 1113 and 1150, and encompassing an area of 500 acres, Angkor Wat is one of the largest religious monuments ever. Its name literally means “temple city.”

Originally, it was built as a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Vishnu, but later on it was converted into a Buddhist temple in the 14th century, and Buddha statues were added to its already rich structures.

The 213-foot-tall central tower is surrounded by four other smaller towers, a layout that is similar to that of the fictional Mount Meru, believed to be the home of the gods in Hindu mythology.

Although Angkor Wat was originally dedicated to Vishnu, the original purpose of the temple is still being widely debated. One issue was that if the ashes of Suryavarman II were indeed interred in the monument, then that would mean that the temple was used as a grave site. Bas-reliefs at Angkor Wat read counter clockwise, which is another indication that the temple is associated with funeral rituals.

In 1992, Angkor Wat was made into a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The site suffered from decades of unregulated tourism and looting; many statues have been decapitated and heads were sold to private collectors for huge profits. A collaborative effort by the international community has helped its restoration to its former glory.

A DIY Body Scrub

honey

Fashionista Godesses,

Exfoliating, like moisturizing, is an important beauty ritual in order to take care of your skin. It gets rid of the dead skin cells and results in a healthy, radiant, dewy glow on your skin. However, why would you have to spend a ton of money on posh spas and beauty products for exfoliants when you can actually make them from the comforts of your own home?

olive oil

A perfect example would be a homemade body scrub you can make from scratch with ingredients that are kitchen staples, readily available in your pantry shelves. A body scrub is so easy to make, you’d wish you’ve already thought of making one earlier on! You just need 3 of the following ingredients: the main ingredient is the exfoliant (coarse sea salt or brown sugar); the carrier oil, which serves as base liquid that holds the scrub mix all together (you can use extra virgin olive oil, virgin coconut oil, or sunflower oil but if you don’t have any of them handy, use baby oil instead); and the last ingredient is the essential oil for aromatherapy. Now here comes the fun part. There are no hard and fast rules in making a body scrub. You get to customize it according to your liking and add ingredients with whatever you fancy!

brown sugar

A classic recipe for a body scrub is the coconut and brown sugar body scrub with vanilla. In a mixing bowl, mix in brown sugar (exfoliant) with spoonfuls of virgin coconut oil (carrier oil), and then add vanilla extract (or an essential oil to serve as perfume). Mix the ingredients well and voila! You got yourself a DIY body scrub without hardly breaking a sweat. As a finishing touch, you may add in several drops of honey, or break down one of those vitamin E liquid gel capsules, and put it in the scrub for moisturizing and hydrating purposes. You also have the option of adding in baking soda to soften the skin. Put the scrub in a clean dry mason jar, print out a cutesy label and then paste it in the jar, and you got yourself a homemade body scrub!

This is how fashionistas render their version of D-I-Y! Tell me what you think!

XOXO,

Nikki ♥

Caramoan Islands

nikki_babie_Caramoan 3
It is not easy being stuck in an exotic island. It could also not get any more complicated than being fastened helpless in a place surrounded by water and mystery. Your friends speak highly of the place: that Caramoan Island is a virgin paradise…untouched…unharmed…yet, you wonder, “will you be able to say the same?”
All there is to know is that you are in the Philippines. Yet, the country is not supposed to be this way! It should be filled with the hustle and bustle of the city! There should be business! There should be traffic! But Technology is nowhere to be seen! Instead you are situated in the center of Eden: calm and in perfect balance with your yin and yang. You are witnessing nature at its finest.
You feel all your inhibitions slowly slipping. You tried to take in your lungs the salty scent of the nearby sea. Why, you have never seen a sea so cerulean like the eyes of a god staring right into your soul. Pinching yourself, you now doubt, are you still alive?
You peered at the depths of the ocean…you see the beginning of life in the form of fishes. Yes. Fishes varying in color—teasing your senses, playing with your fancy. You see corals: a textured rainbow in the deep blue. Your trance cannot end. You still need to taste whatever ambrosia this place has to offer.
Caramoan is just one part among the 7,107 islands that make up the Philippines. Its white sand is just one among the millions surrounding the country. You feel you have seen everything presented to you by the heavens above. You forget the life you left behind. You are at peace.
You do not know how long you will be staying here. You do not know, as well, if you shall be salvaged. The only thing you know is that if this is a nightmare, it is one you wish to stay in eternally. Caramoan. Felicity. Ecstasy. Nirvana.
Will you still strive to leave and abandon this dream?
XOXO,
Nikki
