Old readers of my first blog would recall that when I started in 2008, I focused more on beauty and writing about local all-natural brands. That was the blog’s first inclination after all — to share my local beauty discoveries. Even though this new blog is geared towards more lifestyle posts, I still relish in visiting bazaars and discovering handcrafted products from indie brands.

And one brand that I’ve supported from the start was Nanny Rose who was known more for their cold wax hair removal kits exclusively available in Watsons. Now I’m featuring their new products from their sub-brand, Lunas (means solution in English).
