Lavender is most commonly used in aromatherapy. The fragrance from the oils of the lavender plant is believed to help promote calmness and wellness.
Now if lavender surrounds a face as beautiful as that of #Binibini23 Gabrielle Basiano, the calming effect is so much more effective.
Just look at her!

For this batch, I would give a three-way tie for first place to #Binibini21 Hannah Arnold, #Binibini23 Gabrielle Basiano and #Binibini29 Honey Cartasano. I can see anyone among them getting a crown, if not all three of them. While this pictorial may not be the most agreeable for many of Hannah Arnold’s critics, she still delivers the goods and is on her way to a top placement in the competition. Gabrielle Basiano, on the other hand, is showing us why she just might become the first-ever big winner of RL’s Angels after many years of fielding candidates. She has practically all the fine elements in her favor – an angelic face and excellent height. She just needs to make her Q&A skills more solid.
As for Honey Cartasano, the physical changes make her a more arresting presence this time around. Her styling has almost always been spot on. Just like Gabrielle, she just needs to put a more confident spin in her communication skills.
My 4th and 5th placers are twin spoilers just waiting in the wings. But between the two, the sweet beauty of Francesca Taruc definitely has the edge over Carina Cariño.
How about you, dear readers?
Cherry blossoms in June!

A virtual Santacruzan it will be for Bb. Pilipinas 2020. Because of the pandemic crisis, the Binibinis will have to be dolled up off-site and presented as sagalas online. It takes some getting used to, but this is already a sneak peek into the new normal – the BPCI way.
Below are three more ladies to feast your eyes on.

Watch the clip and find out her thoughts about the indefinite postponement of the national pageant.
After the release of the new sets of official photos and yesterday’s Ever Bilena Beauty Tour by the Bb. Pilipinas 2020 candidates, normannorman.com is sharing with you his 2nd Round Picks that should set up things nicely for the Press Presentation that will happen on March 17. Take note that I arranged the #Binibinis according to the order of my preference and not by numbers anymore:
Samantha Bernardo of Palawan
Karen Laurrie Mendoza of Iloilo
Gabrielle Basiano of Borongan, Eastern Samar
Hannah Arnold of Masbate
Patrizia Garcia of Manila
Honey Cartasano of Rizal
Alexandra Mae Rosales of Laguna
Cindy Obeñita of CDO, Misamis Oriental
Vickie Marie Rushton of Negros Occidental
Carina G. Cariño of La Union
Hazel Ortiz of Pasig
Pat Babista of Quezon Province
Francesca Taruc of Angeles City, Pampanga
Danica Joy Acuña of Romblon
Maureen Montagne of Batangas
Alexandra Faith Garcia of Olongapo
Jash Dimaculangan of Camarines Sur
Samantha Alexandra Panlilio of Cavite
Shanon Tampon of Caloocan
Kimberly Anne Tiquestiques of Balagtas, Bulacan
As of today, the competition is still wide open for all the ladies. The leaderboard, though, is starting to take shape more clearly, such that if the Grand Coronation Night will happen later, the potential titleholders are Samantha Bernardo, Karen Laurrie Mendoza, Gabrielle Basiano, Hannah Arnold and Patrizia Garcia, with Honey Cartasano and Alexandra Mae Rosales as runners-up.
But with the remaining pre-pageant counting more than a month and a half to go, anything can still happen. Samantha Bernardo is looking like my only surefire winner at this point.
