Fresh New Look of Foodcourt at SM Fairview | Events

Philippines has been known as a country of malls and department stores and for the common Filipinos, dining in SM Foodcourt is a part of the culture. When I was younger, my family would go to a nearby SM mall and eat out in one of the stalls in SM Foodcourt. I remember the place would be always busy and noisy – full of people wanting to taste a variety of food. It seemed to be a challenge to get food and available seats at that time that it became a wonder to me while many still choose to go Read More …

Summer in the City with Banana Peel | Events

My summer 2015 has been filled with a lot of new experiences as I traveled as much as I could. Now that May is coming to a close, I decided to stay in Manila after my several out-of-town and overseas trips. I didn’t imagine my second best favorite season would follow me here in my territory! Recently, the beach vibe was brought in UP Town Center for Banana Peel’s Summer in the City and I was lucky to be invited to grace the said event. Banana Peel, the first flip flop concept store in the country, showed its appreciation to Read More …

Dermcare Luxe Hair Color Treatment Review Plus Giveaway

The last time I had a hair makeover was my ombre hairstyle in late 2014. I really liked my sombre mane that I kept it that way for months. I also felt lazy going back for a retouch when my roots were starting to show. I only went twice to the same salon to have an appointment, but the senior stylist who had my hair done was absent on both occasions. It was only until late last month when I considered dying my hair again. Dermcare Luxe Gateway I have once tried Dermcare Professional branch in SM Light Mall and Read More …

My New Healthy Snack: Nova Jalapeño Spice | PR

Ever felt guilty whenever you eat chips (and consume the entire bag)? I sometimes do, but not when I have one of my favorite Philippine snacks, Nova. Unlike common chips, Nova has been popular in the country’s market as the healthy option for snacking. It is fiber-rich and made with wholesome grains like wheat, corn, oats, and rice. Nova Jalapeño Spice Just this month, a new variant of my favorite snack has been released – Nova Jalapeño Spice. It now has a spicy flavor! Perfect because I always like a bit of kick in my food! Jack ‘n Jill introduces Nova’s Read More …

Catch the Sakura Season at Tokyo Bubble Tea

After my trip to Japan, spring has been my favorite time of the year. I just love to see nature filled with greens and colorful flowers. Residing in a tropical country makes it not easy to witness such a beautiful season and time and financial availability are not always there. Even though “hanami” or cherry blossoms viewing is worth it, sometimes it is not so practical to just fly to Japan every year and experience this. Luckily, one of the largest milk tea stores in the Philippines, Tokyo Bubble Tea, brings the feeling of spring and cherry blossoms here in Read More …

Timeless Fashion: Florsheim Return 2 Classics

Trends come and go, but never the classics. They always remain in style. For me, they transcend time and always manage to look beautiful, elegant and sophisticated. Maybe my taste for fashion is getting matured than before – I get more attracted to classic styles these days. I believe that everyone should invest in good quality classics that are stylish and timeless staples in one’s wardrobe. I was very happy when Florsheim Philippines extended an invite to me to attend the opening of its newest store in the country and the launching of its new campaign, #Return2Classics. Last May 8, Read More …

Welch’s 100% Grape Juice | PR

Everyone who visits my apartment knows that I am a fan of healthy drinks – either I make my own fruit shakes or get concentrated juice. Since preparing and blending fruits for my smoothies can take some time, I use bottled and pure juice drinks when I am in a rush. One of my all-time favorites is Welch’s. I love this grape juice! I have been drinking Welch’s since I was a kid and I remember my family used to import bottles of this brand. My parents like that this is pure grape juice and made from 100% Concord grapes.

Experience Farm Life at Gourmet Farms

How lovely will it be to see fields of greens, to gaze at butterflies sipping sweet nectar from colorful tropical flowers, to watch birds freely flying under the blue sky and to smell freshly roasted coffee beans early in the morning? This is something I can’t always have living in the city my entire life. There are times when I want to escape Manila and find myself in the countryside. Oh, where shall I go this time? Farm Life at Gourmet Farms Conveniently just an hour away from my family home, an organic farm has been quietly flourishing in Silang, Read More …

Endless Summer Fun 2015 with Dermplus

Sunny weather usually brings the feeling of brightness, cheerfulness, and endless amount of fun. Summer season is most often associated with sands, shorts, bikinis, and tanned skin that’s why a lot of us love to hit the beach at this time of the year. We love frolicking in the sea for hours and while this seems to be a perfect activity, we are also putting ourselves in risk when we don’t use appropriate sun protection. Exposure to the sun in long hours without a trusty sun block regularly applied can increase the probability of skin aging and worst, skin cancer. Read More …

Remington Product Launch in the Philippines

I have always been conscious about my hair. You see, I have natural wavy mane which is often frizzy, dry, and totally unmanageable. Having perfect hair is something I seldom experience. I believe that it is due to this fact, among others, that I was recently invited by Stratworks Inc. to attend its latest event. Last April 21, I attended the launch of Remington Hair Technology’s newest product line-up in the Philippines. The leading UK-based hair grooming brand has finally crossed continents and reached the country bringing its wide assortment of personal care tools and appliances to Filipinos. Green Sun Read More …
