February Feature: Princess Mimi Almond Brown

They are great if you want natural bigger looking eyes without looking like a china doll like other black dolly lenses which can make you end up looking a little ‘lifeless’ sometimes.

Review: Mary Kay Botanical Effects

No amount of expensive beauty products can make your skin look good if you don’t take care of it. Moreover, make-up cannot hide horrible skin.

2nd Anniversary Sale and Events!

Red Jhelli Shop was established after the proprietor took the Nursing Licensure Exam way back August 2010. What started as a source of income and diversion, while waiting for the exam result, soon became a source of challenge and inspiration to succeed and do more. 

Everything started from trash, from the capital for the business to the ideas that has defined the Shop now. Our very first clients were friends, classmates and family members, who later spread the word and since then supported us.

Thus, as we celebrate our second year of being in the business we can’t say thank you enough to all those who supported us. Indeed, there were times when I just wanted to quit out of frustration. Running this business was certainly not a walk in the park.

But enough of this drama! Let’s get rolling on how we would like to thank all those who supported us, especially our clients, who are our TREASURES.

Here are the following events to look out during our 2nd Year Anniversary:

First Event:

We are hosting an online giveaway contest. Mechanics of how to join the contest is as simple as 1-2-3! Read about it here.

Second Event:

We are having an anniversary sale and a 10% discount on all dollface cosmetics items for a minimum purchase of 1,000 pesos for Red Jhelli Shop items displayed at Dolled Up Studio is up!

Third Event:

Red Jhelli Shop is sponsoring “FILIPINISM: Patronizing Our Culture”, a local fashion show that showcases the talent of our young fashion designers by using fashion as a platform to create impressions of what it means to be a Filipino.

Indeed, our culture is the one thing that separates us from the rest of the world. Our culture makes us distinctly Filipino. 

The event will be held at The Stage, 4th Level, Elizabeth Mall (Cebu City) on August 26, 2012 from 5:00pm to 10:00pm. Ticket is Php. 100.00.

Learn more about it here.

I hope, this is enough of a thank you to all those who supported us and may you continue to be with us as we forge new destinations and bring the Shop to new heights.

Yes, 2012 is the Year of Red! Stronger and better! <3 font="font">

Red Jhelli Shop and Dollface Cosmetics Consignment

Red Jhelli Shop and Dollface Cosmetics Inc. signed a contract of consignment made and effective last February 1, 2012. This marked another milestone for Red Jhelli Shop in its quest to make the best of 2012.

We would like to thank Pearl Sarcauga, sole proprietor of Dollface Cosmetics, for giving us this huge opportunity.

Finally, we can now have our products displayed at the Dolled Up Studio located at Unit 103 Eden’s Place Corner C. Rosal, Acacia Street Lahug, Cebu City.

Testers, graded lenses, brochures, promos and our latest stocks are available at the Dolled Up Studio.MJ, Pearl’s assistant is also adeptly equipped regarding our products. She will happily entertain all your questions upon purchasing.

The Studio is open from 10:30 in the morning until 7:00 in the evening from Mondays to Saturdays. 

I am encouraging everybody who wishes to try out the lenses first before purchasing to visit the Studio and for those who I can no longer set a meet up date because of my busy schedule.

This consignment not only benefits Red Jhelli Shop but also the very clients we are serving. You can now go to the Studio without the fear of being late for the meet up or having no time during the week to purchase the lenses you want. Furthermore, right after purchasing, you no longer need to find a place to put on your lenses since the Studio boasts mirrors huge enough to accommodate all your angles.

MJ and Mama :)

Red Jhelli Shop shall continue to improve our services and availability for the benefit of our customers. As we always say,  “OUR CLIENTS ARE OUR TREASURES”.

I hope everybody visits the Studio and check out our lenses when you have the time! :)

A Challenge to the Women of Today

photo taken from:

Women were an oppressed class. They were the silent sufferers of history, claimed as property, relegated to home, restricted to have jobs and made into a “breeding dog”, an elaborate system of oppression in the past needs yet to be recognized as such. For this oppression was total and has been affecting every facet of women’s lives.

Men have controlled all political, economic and cultural institutions, using their power to keep women in an inferior position whose only purpose is to enhance men’s lives. Indeed, all power throughout history has been male-oriented and male dominated especially in the family.

The power of fathers within families existed before the formation of Western civilization and was built into mental constructs, primarily through the influence of the church. Biblical interpretations based on theological arguments from a male superior group used core texts of the Bible; namely Genesis, the Fall and St. Paul; to define the “proper” roles of women. Similarly, according to traditional Hindu custom, a virtuous woman is considered to be one who worships her husband and derives great power from her virtue to protect her husband and herself.

For two thousand years, these teachings which dominated church doctrines, dictated women’s submissiveness and public silence, and were used to justify subordination. By the Middle Ages, two main assumptions were regarded as basic truths: women were created inferior and for a lesser purpose and by their nature and weaknesses, had greater propensity towards sin and sexual temptations. These dominated all forms of ideas and controlled sexual, social and economic relationships, constantly reinforcing gender stereotypes. This is seen by many as the beginning of gender divisions of labor and occupational segregation, with women positioned in the society as the producers of children and the roles of housewife.

Not only that, even in sports women are considered as inferior to men, as observed during the past 100 years, little girls from birth are most praised not for their actions but for their appearance. They are made to think that their bodies are solely objects to attract men. The so-called fact of a woman’s physical weakness has simply been accepted as common sense. Other scholars have even dismissed the possibility of women being able to cope up with hard physical labor. Thus it is very unimaginable at those times for a woman running around a stadium aiming to win the 100 meter dash and bag in the gold medal.

Worst of all, though things have changed drastically during the last century, portrayals of women in the media have only achieved what we can perhaps call as modernity of appearance and presentation, and not of thought and content. Editorial content and advertisements in all major newspapers as well as magazines, with exclusive female readers, reflect negative images of women, a being who is submissive, frivolous, manipulative, and as decorative objects. In fact, many so-called women’s magazines promote submissive and docile role models, while discouraging female characters with independent thoughts as disrespectful and ill mannered. Women are more often shown in “home-bound” activities such as cooking, cleaning, knitting and gardening. The way women are presented in the media can easily be codified in categories such as: a woman dependent on man; an over-achieving housewife; a high-living femme fatale; as physically beautiful and sexy.

Such roles persuade women that their role on the society, regardless of education or aspirations, is only that of a housewife and making themselves loom beautiful. Continued harmful images of women are shown to children from the early stages of infancy, they learn to accept stereotypes – women have limited intellect; they are good for only house bound activities; they are non-serious and therefore cannot be trusted with independent decision making as the norm. Indeed, the images of women have not changed much during the past five decades. The media continues to be male dominated, manipulated by commercial interests and does much damage through its portrayal of women as sex objects and as a group that plays secondary roles to men.

But as they say, no one is oppressed until one lets herself to be. Therefore, women should not live up to the image of being weak for by doing this, they are making it a self-fulfilling prophecy. All moral actions that women do, involve an element of courage, yet when women are viewed as weak by themselves and others, they expect less of themselves and less is expected of them. Their actions reflect this, as with their accomplishments. To gain some freedom, women must overcome their fear of men and the sense of their own powerlessness.

Thus, I’m ending this article with these final words to the women of today:

  1. Gender inequality only exists when you let it. I have long ago accepted that as a person, regardless of me being a woman has her own limitations but never let other people dictate what your limitations are.  
  2. Remember, a woman who measures herself against the achievements of a man lacks ambition. 
  3. Embrace your sexuality. Never be ashamed of it.
