"Defined brows instantly make you look more polished" - Bobbi Brown

Not all people are born with great eyebrows but we can change that.

Recently, brows have been a hot topic for women of all ages. In the earlier years, thin over plucked brows or almost nonexistent brows were a thing but now people are leaning towards more natural thick bold looking brows.

I can say I'm a noob when it comes to brows. Luckily Abreeza Fashion Forum invited me to their monthly gathering, this time featuring Browhaus. Nicole Romero, a beauty blogger of BeautyandSparkle.com and editor in chief of SkinMatters.com.ph was the speaker.

She started her presentation with brow evolution, how the brow trends evolved through the years.
Nicole stressed that brows are sisters, not twins, so making it identical is unnecessary.
Brows are subjective. There is no eyebrow shape that fits everyone. To attain your perfect eyebrows, you need to consider your face shape, eye shape, and your dedication to maintain your preferred brows.

For me, I have a hard time maintaining arch brows and Koreans have that belief that straight brows make you look younger so I think straight brows are perfect for me.

The Ideal eyebrow shade for a brunette is 2 shades lighter than their hair while blondes ideally need to have brows 2 shades darker than their hair.

Threading is more ideal than waxing because waxing makes the skin droop and sometimes it takes more hair than necessary.

Lucky for us Davaenos, Browhaus: The Brow Salon is a one-stop brow and lash grooming salon built for the image-conscious urbanite who demands not just function, but function and style. And they are here in Davao at Abreeza Mall Third Floor Expansion Wing to help us.

Last October 17, I was invited to try the 1st Escape Room in Davao City. Being fans of Escape Rooms themselves, the owners made their own version and brought it here in Davao to let us experience live adventure games. 

What is an escape room?
Escape room games are live adventure games wherein people are locked in a room and they have to observe and use the elements of the environment to decipher puzzles, find clues and hidden objects, and escape the room within a set time limit.

I was excited at the same time anxious as to what would happen inside the locked room for an hour.  Minimum of 2 and maximum of 5 people can play the games for 60 minutes.

There are 3 themes as of the moment, Secret Agents on a Mission, Murder at Apartment 999 and Lucila's curse. 

Secret Agents on a Mission
- Be a secret agent or covert operative and infiltrate the den of the most dangerous criminal mastermind this world has ever known. You only have one hour to locate and steal the secret formula for creating a zombie army that will lead to the zombie apocalypse. 

Murder at Apartment 999
- Play detectives and solve the mystery behind the famous model/ endorser. You only have one hour to investigate and identify the killer before he or she forever escapes the clutches of the police.

Lucila's Curse
-You and your friends find yourselves locked in a house under the curse of Lucila's tormented soul.  You have one hour to escape or risk being trapped with Lucila for eternity. 

Team #dimakamoveon chose Secret Agents on a Mission. A game master explained to us what our mission is and let the players choose what level of difficulty Houdini, Difficult and Easy the players want. You can always downgrade if you think the puzzle is too difficult for you to solve.

I thought being locked inside a room for an hour would be boring but it didn't happen, time flies so fast inside. It's so confusing at first since you don't know where to start. There were so many clues, you don't know which one would really help you but the feeling when you solve one part of the puzzle is super rewarding. 

We didn't finish our mission but we want to try it again soon. We were told that the Secret Agents on a Mission room was the most difficult one to solve. 


Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays

2 pax – Php 500
3 pax – Php 350
4 pax - Php 300
5 pax- Php 250

Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays

2 pax – Php 450

Dabawenyos! Are you ready to experience Callbox Insomnia? Presenting Callbox's first musical festival in Davao City. This "Spooktacular" Music Festival is a pre-halloween rave party happening on October 24 at Lanang Business Park, Lanang, Davao City. Insomnia Music Festival started last July 2014 in celebration of the 10th Anniversary of Callbox in the Philippines.  We had more than a thousand party goers that night and 2 awesome Manila DJ’s – DJ Ron Poe and Ace Ramos. Rain or shine, the rave party continued this year in Iloilo and now we wanted to share the love for music and spread fun and excitement to all Dabawenyos.

It will be set on a wide location and it is very accessible to many. Expect performers on stage like dancers, models in laser light costumes, and party DJ’s from Davao City and Manila. We will be supporting our own local DJ’s and we invited Jet Boado, one of the best DJ’s in Manila. To add amusement, there will be a laser light show, LED sticks for VIP attendees, and black lights which will highlight the event.

A charity event will also be held hours before Callbox Insomnia. We invited 100 children to the grand launching of All Above The Line After School Project. This will be raised and funded by Callbox Davao and this will be a continuous project to help kids learn how to speak English fluently and to tutor them after school for free. We will be selecting pre-schools and elementary schools for this project.

A bazaar will also be open on the same day until October 25 at the Lanang Business Park Parking Area. So we are inviting Davao entrepreneurs to join so they can also introduce and sell their products at the event.

5 days to go and I'm ready to party but what should I bring? I made a list on what I think #CallboxInsomia goers should bring to enjoy the party to the fullest.

For Girls :

Callbox Insomnia Must Bring Girls

  • Power bank for extra juice for your phone, in case you party or take photos a lot, at least you an still communicate with your friends and family in case there's an after party.
  • Phone for documentation, take photos or videos to remember that event.
  • Mints too much alcohol would make you smell one so at least bring mints or gum so your breath will still smell good when talking to your crush.
  • Tissue. Since handkerchief is too much of a hassle since you may lose it so tissues have the same function so why not use it to remove extra sweat from partying too much.
  • Cologne/ perfume partying may count as a workout thus we may sweat a lot from dancing so better bring cologne or perfume. Partying is not an excuse to smell sweat.
  • Band aid you may use your new shoes when partying and it my lead to battle scars so better bring band aid to continue your party without feeling any discomfort.
  • Cushion / Powder  but I personally prefer cushion because it has more function than powder like provides complete coverage at the same time it controls sebum.
  • Lip tint , a long lasting one. You don't want to look like a zombie when partying so lip tint for natural looking lips.
  • Long hair can be a distraction so better bring hair ties to feel fresh.
  • Money no explanation needed as to why you need money
For Boys :

  • Power bank for extra juice for your phone, in case you party or take photos a lot, at least you an still communicate with your friends and family in case there's an after party.

  • Credit or Debit Card in case money is not enough to buy extra booze. 
  • Water Proof Pouch to protect the gadgets
