NOVUHAIR Turns Favor with Holiday Bash Promo

December 21, 2017 0 Comments
So you’ve got your festive outfit set and the fancy gift wrapped for your “monito” or “monita”. All that’s left undone is a party season-perfect hairstyle.

The fresh out of the shower look can be seductive yet temporary. Blame it to tropical climate, it can spoil your appearance, besides making you feel sweaty and stale. The heat and humidity brought about by extreme weather condition, likewise, dries out the locks easily and make it more fragile.

NOVUHAIR

Your diet must have the correct balance of vitamins and minerals to supply hair with all that it needs to become shiny and strong. So don’t overindulge, especially this time of the year when gastronomic feasts are spread almost everywhere you go. Be careful on what you take in, thinking that it’s also what you feed your ‘do.

Even stress can wear off the beauty and health of the tress. And that’s exactly what you should avoid this Yuletide season. Never put pressure on yourself just to please everyone. Just take it easy, let your hair down and party all night long.

Toddler Activity: Cutting

November 23, 2017 0 Comments
One of the toddler activity that you can try for your Preschoolers is Cutting Scissors. Scissors comes in variety of sizes, so choosing the right scissors is important for your child to practice cutting properly. It may be scary at first especially if it's their first time to hold a scissor, but there are safety scissors available in the market such as the Maped Kidicut Safety Scissors which ideal for young kids learning to use scissors.

One of the important activities or lesson that we can teach our Preschoolers is Cutting. Cutting with scissors require the skill of hand separation, which is the ability to use the thumb, index, and middle fingers separately from the pinkie and ring fingers. With this activity, their little hands will develop fine motor skills and learn the proper way to cut paper. Cutting scissors also prepares our Preschoolers for a much more complicated in the future such as using  different types of scissors, cutting their nails using a nail cutter/nail clipper and even using chopsticks.

For starters, you can draw a straight line on a blank paper and let your child practice cutting it. When he/she masters it, he/she can continue cutting more complicated and detailed lines.

If you're looking for some free printables that you can try for you activities at school or at home, check out the samples below. Here's the free printable that you can print and try for your kids (click on the images to download each printable):

By the way, if you're looking for other Scissor Skills for your Preschoolers, here's a Paper-cutting project book with pre-printed activity pages, the Melissa & Doug Scissor Skills Activity Book With Pair of Child-Safe Scissors. It has 20 activity pages and includes a plastic safety scissors that naturally encourage proper form in cutting and are safe for preschoolers. This activity also encourages fine motor skills and cognitive skills for your kids.

Cut & Paste offers a variety of exercises that will help your child practice scissor skills and other readiness basics such as story order, counting, matching, and beginning sounds. The interesting activities with clear directions will provide hours of educational fun for your child. Plus, the colorful award stickers will enhance your child's learning adventure.

My Tupperware Journey

October 17, 2017 0 Comments
I grew up having a bunch of Tupperware at home. I never really appreciated it until now that I became a mother. It's actually very useful especially in storing ingredients, fruits, foods and of course, my daughter's snack at school. I love that they have added new trendy colors now but it is always out of stock because it's really cool.

I've always wanted to join Tupperware but I always have something important to go or do whenever I remember going there to sign-up. LOL!

Fast forward, after a year, I finally had the chance to join Tupperware Brands here in Davao City. I got so excited to know that one of the Starter Kit is the Speedy Chopper! I've always wanted to have one and I am so happy that I got it at a really low price by joining Tupperware Brands Philippines.

Tupperware Brands Philippines Speedy Chopper

The Speedy Chopper Set is really helpful every time we prepare our meals. It is easy to use and quite fun too, you can chop different herbs and small vegetables in just a few seconds! I was really amazed by this product and I am so happy because it means, 'no more tears' every time I'm chopping onions. ;)

Tupperware Brands Philippines Speedy Chopper Set


You can also make instant dips, sauces and purees with just 10 pulls of the cord. Saves us time to prepare our meals.

Here's a video of me while Unboxing the Speedy Chopper Kit... :)

I really love their products because I have witnessed how long lasting the Tupperware products are. We have Tupperware items since the 90's and some of it are still with us, some have chipped and the others may have faded their colors but it's still usable. :)

I started My Tupperware Journey because I believe in the quality of their products. I am always excited to see their new items every month. Thank God, I have supportive Mommy friends who also loves Tupperware and gives me the opportunity to earn by selling Tupperware's great products... :)

The 'ber months is here once again and usually a lot of people gets cough and colds during these months. So, it's best to take Vitamin C everyday to increase our body's resistance and prevent ourselves from easily getting sick caused by viruses.

United Home Ceetab Premium is non acidic unlike other Vitamin C's, with a formulation of 568.18mg sodium ascorbate and it's available in 10 blister packs x 10 capsules. It's also great for prevention and treatment of Vitamin C deficiency.

For my daughter, we let her have Ceelin Plus to shield her from harmful viruses.

Although, there are times that we tend to be so consumed with work and that we don't have time to exercise regularly and take vitamins or supplements that our bodies needed most. And when the cough strikes, it's good to have the United Home Broncho for the relief of cough characterized by excessive or sticky sputum or phlegm. It also help treat respiratory tract disorders such as acute or chronic bronchitis and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

 United Home Broncho
For fever, it's a must have to take he United Home Fevertab, it has 500mg Paracetamol that helps in the reduction of fever and also eases minor aches and pains.

This is also great especially for bloggers and work at home moms who works in the wee hours. Fersulfate PLUS+ has 300mg Ferrous Sulfate and 250mcg Folic Acid which is also good for pregnant women. I used to take a Ferrous Sulfate with Folic Acid when I was pregnant, it is one of the essential vitamins during pregnancy.

I actually feel sleepy and relaxed during the facial treatment especially during the steaming part where I almost dozed off. After I tried their Ultra Cleansing Repair Facial, I can feel my face feels lighter, brighter, clean and smooth. I can see the difference immediately, actually, my hubby noticed it right away... ;) My Mommy and Lola friends at AdDU noticed it too and was eager to try their services. And as expected, they also loved the results. :)

    ASUS Zenfone 4 Series Launch and Live Stream Party

    August 20, 2017 0 Comments
    I love ASUS and been wanting to have one of the Zenfone series since the launch of Zenfone Max, which I had blogged about in my previous post, ASUS Zenfone Max. Two- months ago, I finally had my own Zenfone 3 Max and I'm very satisfied and so fascinated with it's features, most especially it's long lasting battery.

    So, when I heard about the ASUS Zenfone 4 Series Launch and Live Stream Party in Davao City, I got excited and I am happy that I was able to join this event.

    I am so in love with the new Zenfone 4 Series, but my personal favorite is the ASUS Zenfone 4 Max! What I love about the Zenfone 4 Max is its exceptional battery life, I've already experienced using a Zenfone Max with 4100mAh, so having a 5000mAh is way much better! I rarely do selfies but I love taking pictures of different subjects and scenes and with the Zenfone 4 Max's dual lens, I know I can capture beautiful shots.

    Mom's Day Out

    August 18, 2017 0 Comments
    Being a wife and a mom juggling between different tasks at home and other activities outside can be physically and emotionally exhausting, most especially if you don't have a housemaid. 

    When I became a Mom, I rarely had a "Me Time" and sometimes it can't be considered a "Me Time" because I'm still with my daughter whenever I go out. Having a good massage is what every mother would want to have after all the tedious tasks we've been doing at home or at work. My most favorite "Me Time" is having a massage at my favorite spa, which is just  block away from where we live before in Obrero. I always avail their "Pinoy Hilot" at Elysia Wellness Spa. ;)


    I was delighted when I learned that Sun Life Philippines will be having a Mom's Day Out event. I got excited because who doesn't want to have a Mom Day's Out? ;) It turned out to be a fun day for us Moms because we get to have a relaxing massage courtesy of Elysia Wellness Spa and most importantly, we get to learn more about parenting and balanced motherhood from Michele Alignay, a Family Life Specialist, Registered Psychologist and Registered Guidance Counselor.


    Finding balance in raising our kids while keeping your sanity and keeping your cool is quite difficult and challenging. "A well-balanced mom has more to give her family", I totally agree with this... But it is easier said than done. So, we have to work on our "wants", "should" and "capacities", instead of having a rule that covers all situations all the time, choose to pick within the situation and you'll never be out of balance. 



    Thanks to our speaker, Ms. Michele Alignay for sharing her tips and experiences that taught us how and why we need to balance, re-balance and recharge our life.


    Sun Life Mindanao Cluster Head Mylene Almonte, talks about planning for our children's education for their brighter future through "MyFuture Fund". Everyone of us were surprised to see how much the tuition fee will cost by the time our children would enter college and we're talking about millions here. Wow... My daughter is still in kindergarten now and I can't imagine if our savings and earnings will be enough when that time comes. This is where MyFuture Fund can help us, it would be a great tool in helping us achieve our goal in preparing a college fund for our children. 

    To achieve our children's dreams, we need to plan ahead, save and invest for the college education of our children. Here's Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo's video on Sun Life's MyFuture Fund



    For more information on MyFuture Fund, visit www.sunlife.com.ph or call 849-9888. You can also visit their Facebook Page at Sunlife Financial Philippines and Instagram account at @sunlifeph

    Here's an inspiring short video by Sun Life Philippines for all the moms out there who are wondering if they're doing the right thing for their kids...



    Thank you, Sun Life Philippines for letting us have a stress-free day with other Moms. I enjoyed and learn a lot on motherhood, parenting, self-care and money management... :)
