Ardy Abello's AIM HIGH, Go for G-O-L-D


When I got home from an event on Tuesday afternoon, I ended up questioning myself about a lot of things. Vice President in Sales (ASIA) is the position you’ll read in my certificate of employment. I am in sales and marketing field and I have dealt with thousands of people in the last 8 years. But somehow, that event with Ardy Abello made me reevaluate myself and what I have become. Have I tried to become great? Or did I choose to just settle with the good? What are my priorities?

Dianthus Skin Renewal Set Review



Hey, it’s weekend. I hope you guys are having a great one. Today I will be sharing a satisfying experience I had with Dianthus Skin Care Products. A week ago I received products to try – a skin renewal set, and few different lotions. But heads-up, I’d like you to know that although I didn't pay for any of these products I think they’re fabulous, otherwise I wouldn't post anything about them. 

And again, I got these products for free. The package was sent to me straight from Dianthus Skin Care’s main office in Cebu. I started using the Skin Renewal Set on March 14, the day I got the products. Just after almost a week, March 20, I have already seen great results on my face. Here’s my quick review.

Healthy Shabu Shabu - Power Plant Mall, Rockwell Center

Located at the ground floor of Power Plant Mall – Rockwell, Healthy Shabu-Shabu is a popular Japanese restaurant where diners are assured of a fresh, tasty and well-priced meal. As its name suggests, this place specializes in authentic Japanese style hot pot - shabu shabu, which is served with thinly sliced beef meat, and a plateful of assorted fresh vegetables. 


Carol invited us for dinner. It was sort of farewell dinner for Jex, Keona and Michael before they headed back to California. I have seen this restaurant a couple of times, and I have read rave reviews about this place, but I never really had a chance to try or check their food. I'm glad Carol took us here. Here's our Healthy Shabu Shabu experience.

Sofia’s Glutathione Soap with Kojic and Collagen Review

Hello there! I never thought I’d be posting a review for Sofia’s Glutathione Soap with Kojic and Collagen too soon. I mentioned in my previous post that I will write an update in 2 weeks - that long to give the soap a chance to show some results. This soap deserves a shout out. For only Php100, I have already seen noticeable changes in just 3 days. No kidding! And I love how it smells like my favorite brand – soothing and relaxing. Anyway, here's my quick review. Note that all my opinions here are 100% honest and completely my own.   


I got these soaps for free – handed by Miss Sofia herself during our lunch with Lifestylers Media and other bloggers. I started using this Thursday night (March 12), and just days after, I amazingly see noticeable changes on my skin.  

PACKAGING: I always say this – adding personal touch can make all the difference to you and your customers. I appreciate how SVR Infinity chose to use colored ribbon on top of the paper/plastic sealed product. It gives this soap a homemade feel.

SCENT & TEXTURE: I like it. It does smell like my favorite brand. My skin is showing signs of micro peeling but I can hardly see it. The soap slowly exfoliates my skin and it’s not giving me skin dryness which is good.  

INGREDIENTS: Glutathione, Collagen, Kojic Acid, Vitamin C and E.

PRICE & AVAILABILITY: It’s only 100 pesos.  You can buy it through Zalora, Generics Pharmacy, or through their re-sellers and distributors (click here to see thelist).

Beauty in a Bar: The SVR Soap Bar by Sofia V. Relosa

T
he event yesterday made me fall in love with blogging even more. I am 28, and over the course of my life, I have embraced and tried so many things but none of them have changed my life or brought me as much fulfillment as blogging. Through this online tool, I get to meet awesome people, and that includes this woman I will be featuring today, Miss Sofia V. Relosa. 



Sophia’s Glutathione Soap with Kojic and Collagen smells great. Unfortunately that is the only thing I could tell you right now as I haven’t tried the soap yet. I will start using it today, and I promise to give you guys an honest feedback in a week or two. For now, I want to talk more about the company and the beautiful woman behind this product.

I truly admire how this business started and it’s set up. Miss Sofia is somehow like me, quite lazy when it comes to following beauty regimens. That laziness of hers became a huge influence in the process of creating this “all-in-one” soap.

Crunchy Garlic: BonChon’s 4th and Newest Sauce

BonChon, which means “My Hometown” in Korean, is a global brand that originated in South Korea in 2002. It began making waves in the global arena in 2006 as it entered the US market. Its cult following propelled it to international shores, with stores in Asia, including Philippines. BonChon Philippines opened its first store in November 2010 – considered one of the fastest growing QSR’s (Quick Service Restaurant) in the country with over 86 locations nationwide. 


Yesterday, I was invited by Nuffnang Philippines to be part of the launching of BonChon’s 4th and newest sauce, the “Crunchy Garlic”. Needless to say, after I received the invite, you could say that I immediately penned down the time in my schedule. Truth be told, I have never been to any BonChon branch or have tried their chicken, which adds to my excitement.  I am happy I took part of the event; I guess I have found my new favorite chicken place.

Nuvo Bar and Restaurant, Greenbelt 3: Second Visit


We visited NoVu in December 2013 for a company Christmas dinner (you can read that post here) and I loved it. Nothing has really changed in terms of décor and design. And just like last time, we really enjoyed its sophisticated ambiance and the sultry tones of the live band. Here’s what we had in our second visit. 



In this visit, I decided to go with their grilled special. I ordered Tuna Belly (Php650.00). It was served with two side sides. I chose mashed potato and mixed vegetables for my sides. I love this one. Yum!
