GREAT ARGAN SALE 2016 AT NAILAHOLICS



Eating healthy (a lot of greens, water, and fiber), getting enough sleep and a lot of exercise helps us in maintaining a healthy and beautiful skin. For a lot of people, the end of the year is when their skin gets the most attention. Well, it’s because as the year winds down to a close, the promise to make an effort to take better care of your skin becomes a big part of resolutions. Living in a tropical country during the most unpredictable season of the year, where the weather swings from sunny and humid to cold and wet in minutes, on top of all the sugar, alcohol and greasy holiday treats, can really wreak havoc on your skin.

FROM CARCASS TO TABLE: LOWDOWN OF MEAT INDUSTRY'S DELIVERY SYSTEM




RDF Feed, Livestock & Foods, Inc. (RDFFLFI) Unique Cold Chain Process

Producing safe food should be the ultimate goal of any agri-food system enterprise. By the time the meat reaches the consumer’s kitchen, they should be assured of the many safety measures taken by these companies to deliver fresh and quality meat. Big brand names are not enough to guarantee the viability of the meat we purchase.

The problem lies with the company’s delivery system. Most companies contract third parties to deliver freshly slaughtered meat with no proper monitoring systems on the trucks' temperature and travel time. It is common knowledge that some of these contractors turn off the truck’s refrigeration system during travel to lessen fuel costs. Proper handling of products during delivery also plays a key role in maintaining quality. Dropping of products directly to the floor, or carrying carcasses on the bare backs of handlers are common practices, which compromise the product.

AQUA WHITE BB CREAM BY BLUSHING BEAUTY REVIEW


Last week I posted on IG and FB about the product that I use to maintain a no make-up natural finish look. So for everyone of you asking, it is the Aqua White BB Cream from Blushing Beauty. It is made with a hydrating burst formula thus its keeps me look fresh the whole day.

With the kind of weather that we have, I'm sure, just like me, you do not want that heavy- makapal "like bellas-parang-laging-a-attend-ng-party" coverage. haha! For just an everyday make-up, all I want is the one which has a lightweight texture but would cover all the chismis on my face. :)

FEMILIFT SAVES YOU FROM URINARY INCONTINENCE AS IT BOOST YOUR CONFIDENCE AS A WOMAN




So you’re in the middle of a conversation with friends, having some fun, making memories altogether. All of you are having the time of your lives then this one friend threw in some "funny hirit" ~ and all of you laughed at the joke. Suddenly, you feel that short muscle spasm down under, followed by the familiar wetness that comes with a pee. Oh my gosh, isang malaking dyahe right!!! A very awkward, uncomfortable moment. And I tell you, the situation that you experienced did not just happen because you laughed so hard. It happened because you have a stress urinary incontinence.

KATHRYN AND LIZA’S KITCHEN BEST FRIEND

The kitchen used to be a scary place for young people and cooking was a daunting task reserved for mothers and household helps. But technology played a role in guiding people around the kitchen. Nowadays, new cooks search online for cooking videos or check out “food hacks” to be able to produce any dish they want that they can, in turn, show off on social media.

MOMS ON THE GO AND BOSSING VIC SOTTO CHOOSES CHOOKS-TO-GO



I have been a work-outside-of-the-home mom, a stay-at-home mom and a work-from-home mom~ Through it all, I think I can be the only best mother if I am at my best. And I think that's how a mom is - wanting all the best for her family.

May it be in expressing our love up to the nitty gritty in serving only the best meals and food choices. But sometimes you know, being an on the go mom can be stressful especially when it comes to choosing take-away food. I'm sure if you are a mum, you would want to feed your family with healthy choices and as much as possible stay away from fast-food.

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT, I FOUND A CANDY THAT'S YUMMY BUT HEALTHY


In the family, the only one who doesn't have sweet tooth is me. I prefer the "maaalat" ones over sweets. Which only means that the daughter and the husby got sweet tooths! Chocolates, candies, ice cream and cake. You name it, we got it! Yup, that's the name of the game in our home.

We all know that everything that is too much is bad, and that's where my role as a mum comes in. Yes, the dad and the kiddo can eat sweets but as long as they will eat it in moderation. So even if it's everyday, as long as everything is in moderation and they know their limit, then we are good. ( I don't actually have rules in the house that says its "bawal" because I have always believed that the more you prohibit someone on something, the more na that person would have the feeling or the urge to eat/do something). 

I think, if kids are the one who's reading this post - Yes, they would definitely be thinking that I am a very"cool" mum hah! :)


Few days ago I have discovered VITA CUBES.

Okay, so I always have this perception that Vita Cubes is a Vitamin. But NO mums, it isn't. It's actually a candy. Kaya pala Tammy has been asking me to buy her a pack one time when we were in the grocery. I didn't buy her at that time 'cause we still have a lot of her vitamins in stock at home.

(Hindi naman nya sinabi na its a candy...) sinisi ko pa daw talaga sa bata yung hindi ko pagbasa and pag lagay ng atensyon. haha!



SO WHAT IS VITA CUBES

Vita Cubes is a delicious and nutritious cube-shaped jelly candies that's high in vitamins and minerals. 



Here are so many reasons why I am now a fan of Vita Cubes : 
  • It comes in five different fruit flavors – orange, strawberry, grape, apple and mango. 
  • It is fortified with essential vitamins and minerals that are important for growing children. 
  • Each cube is packed with Vitamins A, B, C and E, plus Lysine and Zinc. But I have to note that these are still candies (and not vitamins) so there's really nothing to worry about overdose :)
  • Since its packed with vitamins it helps your kids to be healthy, helps in their growth and boost their immunity against sickness.
  • You can easily find them because it is available in Major Groceries Nationwide, Mercury Drugstores and Mini Stop and Local Grocery Stores.
  • It's very affordable ( a 50g-pack is at Php12.00) so I really prefer these as to the other candies. Vita Cubes Singles is only (Php1.00 per piece) which can be bought at the local groceries near you.

Last Saturday, Tammy and I spent our day with the other Mommies at Active Fun BGC.  

Vita Cubes in collaboration with Mommy Bloggers Philippines just made us mums, kids and even the dads so happy because of Vita Cubes 2Good Fun Day.

There were lots of games, prizes and magic show where the kids and the kids at heart enjoyed. 

photo flip book where also given

There were lots of Cakes and Yummy food

and Tons and Tons of Vita Cubes!

Plus the Super daming take home goodies which made the event even more fun!

And of course the special access pass to the play area. Sobrang enjoy si Tammy!

I had spent my Saturday Afternoon meeting moms where I only get to talk online and their cutie daughters and sons + macho husbands :)

with the other mummies of Mommy Bloggers Philippines (photo source)
Truly an afternoon well spent!!!

Thanks so much Vita Cubes for inviting us to a day of good fun. 

Sending my love and kisses to Vita Cubes and Mommy Bloggers Philippines for this great event! Muchas Gracias!
