Making Scents: Downy Pays Tribute to Mothers on Mother’s Day

T1Happy Mother`s Day to all the Moms, would be Moms and those who have not actually given birth but play the “role” of Mom to their families!!!

Last week, my daughter Raffy and I were invited to attend a gathering of mothers hosted by Downy Timeless at the Peninsula Manila, where guests celebrate how a mother’s love not only endures but also evolves over time. Her words and actions stay with her children forever, and affect the kind of parents her children may eventually be.


Downy Timeless Theme of Pure White

Timeless white, classic, calm and perfect for a gathering of women.  As we entered the venue, We not only noticed the beautiful venue Downy Timeless prepared for us Mommies but also the subtle scent in the air that evokes warmth and tranquility.  Raffy and I found our seats and then we were ushered to get our glamour shot at the flowered photo wall.

I was so excited for the program to begin.  Read on if you wish to learn more.

Hello Sweeties!

I posted about Dermplus Moisturizing Sunblock  launching two exciting new products in the market just in time for the Summer Season.  I along with my beastie, Raffy who is a fan and Dermplus Sunblock user since 2013 were invited to attend the Dermplus Blogger Party at Manos Nail Lounge at Bonifacio Global City to introduce and try out their new products.

Raffy has been on football training for the past weeks and she is excited to learn about the new Dermplus products she could share with her teammates.

Dermplus Moisturizing Sunblock is the answer to your skin problems during the warm hot weather in the Philippines. It is formulated with unbeatable UVA and UVB filters to protect our skin from the harsh ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Let`s face it, we are exposed to the sun almost 50% of the time everyday. Over exposure to the sun could lead to pre-mature aging or worst skin cancer! That is the reason why it would be best to start them young and have them start it as a routine for their skin health.

Press Release: Endless Fun Under the Philippine Sun**


Hello Sweeties!

Who doesn’t love a little fun in the sun? The beach can be a perfect way to spend the day and get some summer moments with your loved ones. Summer means sun, shorts, sandals, bathing suits, and bronzed skin. But with beach hair and shorter hemlines comes the dangers that not only instigate the probability of skin cancer, but the aging process as well. Sun exposure is, essentially, subjecting yourself to sun damage – but in the same note, avoiding the outdoors altogether is both impractical and nearly impossible.

 Dermplus Moisturizing Sunblock is the answer to your skin problems this summer. It is formulated with unbeatable UVA and UVB filters to protect your skin in the harsh ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Dermplus sunblock physically blocks and reflects light and it also helps heal skin damage caused by over-exposure to the sun.  Dermplus Sunblock is available in different SPFs like SPF 24 that is recommended for morena skin and for indoor use, SPF 35 for fair skin and SPF 80 and 130 for extreme outdoor activities. Use Dermplus Moisturizing Sunblock and worry no more about the harmful Ultra Violet A (UVA) and Ultra Violet B (UVB) rays. Whether you will spend your summer in Boracay, Cebu, Palawan or in Bohol, never forget your number one sun defense partner. Dermplus Moisturizing Sunblock is also trusted by Emilio “Chieffy” Caligdonga professional football player and the former team captain of the National Football Team.

Food Review: Cupcake Bites Cafe Lilac Street Marikina

imageHello Sweeties!

Raft and I were cruising Lilac Street looking for something sweet to take home to my son Jarod. We usually visit Lilac Street after a school activity which ends very early. And most of the shop open after 12NN, so we end up just having a burger at the nearest fast-food join when we were feeling too hungry to wait for a shop to open. Lucky, I we spotted Cupcake Bites Cafe opened early (they usually open around 1:00PM).

Cupcake Bites Cafe is looks a lot like their cupcakes, feminine, cute, and perfect for dainty girls. The cafe just opened for the day, so it was just Raffy and myself.  We decided to take the cupcakes home instead of dining in.

Food Review: Meat Lovers`Paradise Sandaya Yakiniku Fisher Mall

Hello Sweeties!

Whenever I feel like having beef I usually have something Japanese, my problem usually is which Japanese restaurant to dine coz let`s be honest there are more of them out there, and honestly I have yet to try half of them.

This is why I was happy to receive an invitation for a Zomato Foodie Meet-up at one of the newer Malls in Quezon City. Fisher Mall.



Sandaya Fisher Mall, is located at the 3rd level, you can`t miss it since it is near the escalators. I arrived found the venue impressive with their elegant dining set up. It was a large restaurant that could probably accommodate a large group of people or become a venue for a special occasion like a birthday party or corporate affair.


Wooden Table and Chairs

Sandaya Yakiniku- Fisher Mall opened November 2014 and is barely a year old but has made a name for itself as one of top Yakiniku restaurants in the city.

Sandy Fisher Mall looks intimidating at first glance because of the elegant and formal atmosphere. For Alvin Ong, Vice President and COO of Sandaya Yakiniku-Fisher Mall, Sandaya Fisher Mall is a family owned business and they consider it a family friendly restaurant.



Before we started dining we were given Oshibori, or hot towels. An o-shibori  or hot towel in English is a wet hand towel offered to customers in places such as restaurants or bars in China and Japan and in some Chinese and many Japanese restaurants worldwide. O-shibori are used to clean one’s hands before eating, and have long been a common sight in China and Japan.

I only experienced this once while attending a friend`s wedding. And this for me is a sign of consideration for the diners.

Wanna know what we dined on? Read on…

Event: Mommy Bloggers Philippines Relax and Unwind Treat at Body Tune Traditional Thai Massage

BodyTune01 Hello Sweeties!

I have been feeling poorly lately due to over fatigue and stress from work.  I know a lot of  women can relate to this. You have so much to do! So little time to do it. Us Mommies more than most, since we have to juggle a lot of  things at once since duh everything is a priority; family, household, faith, business (blog) that our personal well-being takes a back seat.

Isn`t it time to get a little “me” time?  We need a bit of relaxing, will help us get rid of stress and aches coz let`s be honest, if we don`t take care of ourselves how are we going to take care of everyone else? Like a well a used laptop/tablet/smartphone we use we need recharge ourselves.

I was excited that I was one of the Mommy Bloggers Philippines Mommies invited to a Spa day at Body Tune, SM Mega Mall.


According to an article in Reader`s Digest getting a massage more than relaxes you; it helps relieve headaches, boost immunity, improves sleep, soothes anxiety and depression,  and eases muscle pain. See the full article here.
