Baby Care Plus+ White: You and your Little Angel’s Best Buddy

As a mom, there are a lot of delightful moments to share with your baby, and one of them is giving your little angel a bath. That warm glow on his face after every shower is precious enough because you know how simple routines like this can bring so much comfort to your baby.

To help give your baby gentle skin care and protection, especially during bath time, Tupperware Brands Philippines, the country’s leading direct selling company, offers Baby Care Plus+ White. A baby care line that’s pH-balanced, dermatologist-tested, hypoallergenic, and clinically proven mild and safe for baby’s sensitive skin, Baby Care Plus+ White is your partner in giving your baby the utmost protection and care his young skin needs.
A product line that truly cares for baby’s delicate skin:Baby Care Plus+ White shampoo, bath, powder, cologne, lotion, and soap. 
Each Baby Care Plus+ White product has unique ingredients that cater to your baby’s specific skin care need, plus other additional benefits guaranteed to keep your baby’s skin in tip-top condition.

Now that the summer season is just around the corner, your baby may often experience that uneasy feeling because of the scorching heat, but you definitely don’t want that to happen.

Here are some tips to make sure your little angel feels comfortable all throughout the day:
  • Give your baby a fun top to toe wash. Wash your baby’s hair first with a moisturizing shampoo like Baby Care Plus+ White Shampoo. It has Cetiol Conditioners which moisturizes your baby’s hair and scalp preventing dryness, and keeping your baby’s hair soft, silky and freshly fragrant. 
  • Use a gentle soap for your baby’s ears, neck, arms and legs. Baby Care Plus+ White Bath or Baby Care Plus+ White Soap contains Lamesoft Skin Protector which forms a natural barrier to protect bay’s skin. It also contains Olive Oil extracts guaranteed to cleanse your baby in a mild way. Don’t forget to give special attention to the diaper area, which is often exposed to dirt. 
  • Keep your baby fresh. Make sure baby’s room is clean, well-lighted, and well-ventilated. For extra help in keeping your baby fresh and fragrant all day, you can apply Baby Care Plus+ White powder on their body, and use Baby Care Plus+ White cologne. Both products have a long-lasting mild, powdery floral scent that your little angel – and those who like hugging him – will surely love. 
  • Moisturize with a Vitamin E- rich lotion. Retain baby’s soft and moisturized skin by gently massaging some lotion with 24-hour locked in moisturizers and Vitamin E, like Baby Care Plus+ White Lotion. A simple massage promotes your little angel’s wellness as it gently stretches muscles and joints to help coordinate movement. Warm up this clinically mild and gentle lotion on your palms and lightly massage his toes and feet, all the way to his tummy and back, in circular motions. Velvety skin and stronger muscles; now, that’s a two in one benefit for your baby. 
With these tips, you can just simply enjoy each day with your little angel without worrying too much about the heat and its effects on his delicate skin. Keep baby feeling, smelling, and looking fresh with Tupperware Brands’ Baby Care Plus+ White, you and your baby’s best buddy.

Lenten Recipes for Aspiring Superbods

The Lenten season brings challenges to make no-meat meals as appetizing and flavorful. Thankfully, Century Tuna and nutritionist to the stars Nadine Tengco came up with delectable and filling Lent-friendly recipes for the aspiring Superbods.

Many of the dishes feature the original healthy meat, Century Tuna Flakes in Oil. Century Tuna contains Omega 3, which helps burn body fat, shrink abdominal fat cells and stop certain genes that trigger inflammation on belly fat, in addition to promoting a healthy heart.

As part of the Superbods Diet, these recipes had been tried – and loved – by Century Tuna ambassadors Anne Curtis and John Lloyd Cruz, as well as Boys Night Out DJs Slick Rick, Tony Toni and Sam YG, who were tapped as 2014 Century Tuna Superbods celebrity challengers.

All five will reveal their Superbods – honed by the Superbods Diet and Workout Plan designed by Nadine and Coach Jim Saret for Century Tuna, respectively – this April 25 to 27 in the country’s ultimate summer destination, Boracay.

Carlo Rossi Toasts the Class of 2014

Graduation is an event that draws a bag of emotions, conflicting at times, but worth savoring nevertheless; sadness because you will leave behind the people and places that you have grown fond of for the past several years; joy because it means you are finally done with books and quizzes and assignments; happiness because you can finally pay back your parents and other benefactors for the years of hard work; uncertainty because, well, you don’t know what kind of future awaits you outside the four walls of the classrooms.

But no matter how and what you feel inside, graduation is a time for celebration. A grand celebration of family, of friendship, and of course, of gratitude—to parents, teachers, sisters, brothers, classmates, friends, to God and to everyone who help you realize that dream of getting a college diploma.

Celebrate because you are lucky. Not everyone is able to finish college and therefore is assured of a brighter future ahead.

And what better way to celebrate than with a bottle or two of your favorite wine to mark that important milestone in your life: Rossi Sweet Red.

Rossi Sweet Red is like a dream: it is soft, and as its name suggests, sweet with layers of vanilla, bright cherry and wild raspberry flavours. But unlike a dream, its well-balanced palate and light medium body stays with you, no matter how you drink it (on the rocks or not, or chilled), and what food you take (no more over thinking if it goes well with fish, meat or cheese).

Crafted from grapes grown in California where the sun nourishes the grapes to perfection, assuring you of wines that burst with flavour and aroma, Rossi Sweet Red has just the right amount of alcohol content and can be savoured at the right price. No need to bleed the credit cards to enjoy its radiance in red.

Of course, it goes without saying that because Rossi Sweet Red is red, it is good for the health. Best of all, it is from the Number One Table Wine in the world, Carlo Rossi. So you are assured of high quality without the high tag price.

Steve Jobs, the famous man responsible for the most useful gadgets ever invented, once told graduates of Stanford University, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life….And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”

He’s right.

Follow your dreams, graduates. Follow your instincts. Lead your own life. Live your dream. Love what you do. These are the simple, basic formula for success.

And success is sweetest when shared with family, friends and loved ones over a glass or two of Rossi Sweet Red.

Here’s a toast to the Class of 2014!

Sharing Our Famfie

There are friends, there is family and then there are friends that we consider as family. Speaking of family, there is a new trend called "famfie" which means family + selfie.

Sidenote: Makati has been dubbed by Time Magazine as the "Selfie Capital of the World" as the most selfie-obsessed place on the planet. Yes Sir! We have been caught up in the selfie craze. From the looks of it, Philippines could easily claim the first place as the famfie capital of the world soon.

Yeah, that's right! Because selfie is too mainstream, here we go....... Famfie!

Famfie with my friends and gym buddies at the gym!
There are days when I am lazy on so many levels but I'm glad I have my #fitfam to motivate me to get in shape! I consider these lovely girls and our Zumba instructor, Kuya Popoy, as my family at the gym, and I spend most of my time there.. I mean I might as well move in. Lol I'm blessed to have them as my family! They really gave me a lot of support from the start. And that certainly made me feel good and motivated about trying to get back  in shape and be the best version of myself.

I started going to the gym last December and after 3 months, I've lost 31 unneeded pounds, added muscle and gained strength. I'm thrilled beyond words to feel better and stronger than I've felt in years, and I hope I could lose a total of 33 pounds when I turn 33 next month.

And here's another famfie.. (because once is never enough!)

Anyone who’s ever tried to take a famfie will know that it can be tricky trying to get everyone in the frame, but it seems Kuya Popoy is a dab hand at it.

Everytime there's a special event or gathering, we see to it that we capture the moment with our family. And by family, I mean not just your biological family but your officemates, college friends, or club/org-mates.. and  for sure there's a #famfie on each and every event! So why not squeeze in for a famfie and share them with everyone?!

Post a famfie of yourself  with the people you also consider as family ( barkada, gymbuddies, officemates, teammates, etc) on Facebook,Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag  #famfie. Don't forget to tag Jollibee. :)

Do you have a #famfie ? Share it and don't forget to tag Jollibee and use the hashtag #famfie.

Fun and Crazy Zumba Party with Pure Jus

I'm no fool but last April 1st, (yep, it was April Fools Day) I decided to join the Zumbathon by Pure Jus held at Amber Ultra Lounge in Bonifacio Global City.

For all the people living under rocks that do not know what Zumba is, it's a latin-inspired, easy-to-follow calorie-burning dance-fitness party.  At the Pure Jus Zumbathon, we danced our way to fitness and I was beyond tired & sore after 2 hours of exhilarating and nonstop Zumba, but it was a lot of fun and a great workout!

Check out our video: (Excuse the sweat, just means I was doing it the right way!)

And what better way to finish a Zumbathon by drinking Pure Jus. Pure Jus are drinks made of 100% fresh fruits and vegetables. Their bottles are offering the best and tastiest juices made only from finest organic produce. No preservative. No added sugar. No added water. No fillers. Only pure juice love. They use state-of-the art cold-press juicers to retain the nutrients and vital enzymes found in fruits and vegetables. Then they bottled, seal, and deliver them fresh to the doorstep. Pure Jus has different yummy flavors to choose from.  My favorites are Brownie, White Nut and Coffee Brownie!

Here are some of the benefits of juice cleanse:

Boost your immune system, and  increase in your energy and mental clarity.
Great way to re-energize and kick-start weight loss. Weight loss. Who doesn't want that?
Cleanse your body by removing toxins and excess waste. These juices are more alkaline and contain more minerals – this helps break down toxins in the body.
Since Juice Jab's juices are free from artificial sweeteners, preservatives and additives; and all fruits and vegetables are sourced locally, your body still gets the calories and nutrients it needs to function properly, and is replenished with vitamins and minerals from the fresh fruit and veggies.
Help motivate you to eat healthier in the new year or get back on track.

A huge thank you to Ms Kristal, owner of Pure Jus, as well as the crazy, fun-loving instructors from Plana Forma, and Mommy Lariza for the invite. But above all, thanks to the refreshing bottles of Pure Jus for giving us the energy to become the ultra energetic and dedicated participants who created the most amazing atmosphere and kept going until the last minute of the Zumbathon.
