IFLIX TURNS 1!


I could still remember when iFLIX has been introduced to us bloggers. Funny how time flies so fast. I could still feel the first time I met the awesome team behind iFLIX and how they were so excited to share with us what everyone can look forward when it comes to a totally bad-ass entertainment experience.

iFLIX celebrated its very first birthday last May 26 and threw an exclusive celebration last week, June 15, 2016 at Bonifacio Hall C, Shangri-La at The Fort. In the year that’s passed since iFLIX first launched, millions of subscribers have signed up, billions of minutes have been viewed, and an infinite amount of good times I've had with these guys. Solid!!! 1 year na agad yon!!! If you've missed reading about their launch last year, you can read it  here.

LIVE BEAUTIFULLY AT ANY AGE WITH HyC150



For the past months, you have read about me whining about my age - fine lines here, cracking joints there, painful muscles once in awhile and the list goes on and on. I've always been very vocal that I am in my 30s already and have no plans of denying it. Totoo naman na duon na ako papunta, magsisinungaling pa ba!

BIOESSENCE HAS NEW PRODUCT LINES FOR ALL AGES AND HOW THEY CARE BEYOND BEAUTY


As part of the brand’s continuing commitment to give value and care to the wellness of their clients, they have launched  their newest Professional Product Lines last April 22, 2016. These latest skin care products is proudly sourced and made by world-class Filipinos, rightfully fit for the unique Filipino skin care needs. 

I have always been vocal that I have been pasaway when it comes to using maintenance products for my skin regimen - been there, done that,  and that has been in the past. I have learned my lesson. Although despite of it,  I cannot deny the fact that I am consistent in bringing myself for facial treatments  and body massage regularly - it is just in daily maintenance where I had commited neglect.

BUSINESS MATTERS: COUNTRY'S FIRST SHOW ON CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY PREMIERS ON BLOOMBERG TV PH

As a business person and having had a brackground with Sales and Marketing, you would often see me browsing articles, reading books, and doing some research to further develop my knowledge about the do's and don'ts in the business industry. Don't get me wrong, we don't own a multinational company yet~ Yes, "yet" because I am positive that the business that we have today will eventually get there since part of our company's vision is running over towards that goal. So for now, I still consider ours as an entrepreneurial small start up company thus my interest to learn further. 

Just last month, I was able to watch in one of our local channels an owner who shared how he started, struggled and how they grow big- I was so touched by his story because

ALL YOUR QUESTIONS ABOUT OLAY REGENERIST OVERNIGHT RITUAL ANSWERED + REVIEW


Some years ago, I had the power and the control in my hands to protect and prevent my skin from further ageing and damage. Actually that power is still up until today because reality wise  we cannot stop the clock from ticking. Unfortunately, although I had all the information and constant reminders from friends and even from the medical experts that one should really start to moisturise her skin as young as 25years old, I frittered everything away and took it for granted. Not once, not twice but countless times. Can you believe that!

I am currently in my thirties and guess what~

CONFESSIONS OF A KILAY ADDICT


I've always believed in the saying, "lumabas ka na ng bahay ng walang suklay-suklay, 'wag lang ang walang kilay".

Seriously girls, our eyebrows could either break or make our look. It's either you look like an alien because of a "kalbong kilay" or you may look like a "witch" because you completely and utterly fucked up your brows. Sorry for the word but that's the reality.

ORGANIZE YOUR BATHROOM WITH COMMAND BRAND


I have always been a fan of DIYs~ DIYs on my accessories, clothing and even to my house display and organisers. Since I frequently inter-change our display from time to time -  drilling holes into our walls is a no-no! I used to buy a double-sided tape to make an improvised adhesive that would place  my decors on the wall. I continued doing so until one day one of my precious wall display fell and got broken. My heart got broken into many pieces too because it means so much to me. From then on I told myself to never ever use an improvised wall adhesive again.  That painful memory pushed me to search for the best strips ~ the one that you can place in the wall and makes you hang things without the need to drill holes. Thus, I discovered the 3M Command Brand.

THE COFFEE BEAN AND TEA LEAF's ~ NEW ICE CREAM ICE BLENDED + OPEN HOUSE LAUNCH + REVIEW


Thursday's event was screaming with ICE CREAAAAAM! Grateful to be one of the few who got to have the first dibs on The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf's Ice Cream Ice Blended drinks at 26th Bistro! I am a forever fan of The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf because coffee already runs in my blood. Haha! Kidding aside and on a serious note, it is because I really find their coffee so comforting~ particularly the hot Caramel Macchiato!

I came just right on time where I still had the chance to go around the area and took photos. The hashtag #DiscoverHappiness fits just right on CBTL's latest offering. Who wouldn't be happy with Ice Cream right? My gaaahd, its such a comforting thing that it really brings out a smile each time I eat one ~ it only gives me nothing but good vibes. Teehee!

CBTL's New Sandwich Offerings
Before the Ice Cream Beverage was introduced, two of their new sandwich offerings were presented and served so everyone can have a taste and try it. There's a Vegetarian Sandwich and the other one was the Grilled Chicken Pesto. You can call me bias but you can't blame me since I love everything that has pesto. And with that, as expected, I got overwhelmed with their Grilled Chicken Pesto sandwhich 'cause it's sooooo masarap. Since I super like it, I was so focused on it that I forgot to take a photo of their vegetarian sandwiches.

I know! Bad Girl! haha!

(L) Chicago Cheesecake (R) Guiltless Chocolate Delight
Aside from the sandwiches, there were also cakes!! Oh how I love cakes. Their Chicago Cheesecake that melts in your mouth will always and always be my favourite. Pair this with my all time favourite CBTL's Caramel Macchiato - and I'm done! haha! Seriously, both cakes are a must try. Sarap talaga.

Thank you Blair for the Photo!
Desserts, good food with good friends are the best. Great to see Blair and Kaycee once again! We really had a lot of fun. Our sweet tooth were all satisfied.

From Left:  Pure Salted Pistachio, Mint Chip Ice Blended, Cookies and Cream Ice Blended

The wait's finally over. Guys, meet The Coffee Bean and Tea leaf's New Ice Cream Blended Drinks!

It comes in three (3) amazing flavors : 

Pure Salted Pistachio Ice Blended (PHP165/185) A Sweet combination of rich vanilla and salted pistachio sauce. 
- This would go for those who love that salty and sweet combination. It is caffeine free so Im pretty sure even the kids (aside from the ones who are kids at heart like me) would love this too.

I find this my favourite. Truly heaven sent with its bold and contrasting flavour. My 10 points goes with this.Teehee!

Mint Chip Ice Blended (PHP175/195) A refreshing combination of chocolate-covered espresso beans, peppermint sauce, and creamy vanilla.
- This sure was the crowds favourite. I am not into minty -tasty ones but surprisingly I loved this one. If you're kinda' feeling blue, try out this one. The flavour would refresh you and lets you forget that busy toxic life that you have.

Cookies & Cream Ice Blended (PHP175/195) A combination of sweet and creamy vanilla with decadent chocolate cookie pieces.
- This yummy combination is ideally best shared with the special ones in your life. Since this can be enjoyed caffeine free, I'm pretty sure, this is a sure winner to the kids because of the timeless all time favourite cookies and cream ice cream~ who doesn't want cookies and cream right? There's something about cookies and cream that brings me to smile all the time. I am definitely sure that Tammy, my daughter would love this variety.


I could just imagine myself being a like a kid again after finishing the tastings - You cannot blame me 'cause if you were there, I'm sure you'll feel the same because each of us were served 3 huge glasses. 

Yes, ganun. 3 huge glasses!

Look at Me, Marie and Sab's eyes! It was shining with pure happiness
Did you see the 3 blended Ice Cream served in big glasses from the previous photo? That was all mine. Oo, akin yun. Kakaloka diba?! hahaha. I'm pretty sure you will all laugh at me if only I had someone who was able to take a video after tasting all the three flavours. Seems like I was a kid na natulala because I was plain happy without any worries~ hehehe.


I'm sure you also want to try these utterly amazing drinks too. You can start enjoying the Ice Cream Ice Blended® drinks at all The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® stores starting June 6.

Can't wait? On June 5, from 11am to 1pm, there will be an open house to Swirl reward card holders. It will be an exclusive peek of their Ice Cream Ice Blended Drinks. So it's time to lift that butt off and try these comforting new offerings at the The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® nearest you.

THAT ONE THING I REGRET AFTER HAVING A BABY


It has been 10years since I had my daughter Tammy. Yes, time flies so fast that I barely noticed that it has been a decade since I became a mother. At the time of my pregnancy, I would remember I read a lot of books and attended seminars about pregnancy, child care and even parenting. You can't blame me for doing all these since I want to be fully informed about everything because I'm a first time mom!
