Jodi Sta. Maria is the newest face of Ever Bilena

Ever Bilena, the country’s leading color cosmetics retail company, is happy to welcome top actress and mother Jodi Sta. Maria to its ever-growing family. Simple, beautiful and an optimist, Jodi is, undoubtedly, the ideal Ever Bilena woman.

Meet @everbilenaofficial latest endorser! @jodistamaria – her go to makeup are Eye brow pencil, cheek tints and lipsticks. She loves shades of RED and NUDE. I really follow her insta because I think she’s a good role model and I love her travels. She loves to visit Africa and wants to see more of Europe. She shared that to travel light, pack your essentials, travel with a medicine kit and know certain vaccine requirements per country. Not only she is an actress/mom/ BS Psychology student, she is also a detox acupuncturist specialist – she did a talk in my school too! #JodiForEverBilena

For this new and enviable role, Jodi will embody the classic Ever Bilena woman whose beauty cut across generations, seasonal trends and styles. Aside from appearing in the brand’s latest digital campaign, Jodi’s role as brand ambassador is to enjoin Filipinas to embrace their innate beauty and go back to the timeless basics as far as makeup is concerned.

“We are very pleased to have Jodi with us as she represents a strong and empowered woman who takes on different roles with poise and grace,” shares Ever Bilena CEO Dioceldo Sy.  “She is truly an inspiration for today’s modern woman and a perfect fit to Ever Bilena which is proudly a local brand that caters to the different lifestyles of every Filipina.”

Jodi started her showbiz career doing supporting roles in popular youth-oriented TV shows Gimik and FLAMES. Her breakout role, however, was the tomboyish Georgina in the very successful teen drama series Tabing Ilog which ran for four years. After playing teen roles, she transitioned to star in daytime show Please Be Careful with my Heart and other numerous critically acclaimed projects like Chassis and Aparisyon which earned her Best Actress nominations in Gawad Urian, and an International Emmy nomination for her role as Amor Powers in Pangako Sa’yo 

But her list of achievements does not end there. In 2017, the actress pursued a Psychology course at Southville International School. She finished with top honors with a 3.8 GPA in her previous semester.

While she is passionate about acting and pursuing medical school, she notes that her most fulfilling role was becoming a mother to Thirdy Lacson. In her recent Instagram post she said: “Ultimately, it’s the role of being a mother and being active in our children’s lives to shape, mentor, and inspire them that matters most.”

From being a doting mother to a critically acclaimed actress, and a top Psychology student, Jodi not only gives her best in every role given to her, she also makes sure to always look good.

“Makeup is a great way to boost one’s confidence,” shares Jodi. “But for me, it should only highlight your natural beauty and not overpower it.” As such, she opts for products that are classic and understated like Ever Bilena’s Matte Lipstick in Glam Red, EB Lip and Cheek Stain in Toast of New York, EB Dip Liner, and the All Day Liquid Foundation.

A woman of beauty and grace, Jodi is grateful to have another blessing come her way. “I’m very happy and thankful to be the newest face of Ever Bilena. I hope through this endorsement, I’m able to inspire others to be the best version of themselves.”

New Year, New Show: LG Electronics Philippines celebrates the launch of Netflix’s new original Korean drama-thriller ‘Kingdom’

Go beyond with the shows you love through the LG B8 4K OLED TV

Brand new year means new and exciting ways to maximize technology and entertainment to bond with loved ones.

Global electronics and home entertainment giant LG Electronics Philippines and international online streaming pioneer Netflix Philippines once again strengthened its partnership with an advance screening last January 24, a day before the worldwide premiere of the newest original Korean series – ‘Kingdom’.

Netflix has put together two things to make most binge-worthy stories from South Korea: the thrilling K-drama about ancient Korean monarchy and the threat of an impending zombie apocalypse. Set in Korea’s ancient Joseon Period, “Kingdom” follows the journey of a crown prince sent on a suicide mission to investigate a gruesome plague spreading inside the kingdom — only to find zombies threatening his reign and his people.

On January 25, 2019, Netflix premiered a contagious case of binge-watch fever ‘Kingdom’ and just recently, LG Philippines recently launched its 30th Anniversary TV — the OLED B8 4K TV — and it’s the best way to give justice to the thrill and excitement of “Kingdom” and its mind-blowing cinematic appeal.

More than a hundred media attendees watched the the advance screening with the impressive LG OLED TVs at the Korean Cultural Center (KCC) in Bonifacio Global City. Guests had a blast as they got to dress up in a traditional Korean Hanbok to pose against the realistic “Kingdom” backdrop and roaming zombies. A traditional Korean feast dinner was served after the Nara Team performed a traditional Korean Fan Dance before the actual viewing.

LG Philippines is also delighted to share this exciting milestone with some of the country’s brightest personalities as brand ambassadors, the ‘Iron Man’ of the Philippine Basketball Association LA Tenorio, actor Gil Cuerva, Bb. Pilipinas 2016 Nicole Cordoves, and Lifestyle, Travel Vlogger Dani Barreto. The event was hosted by TV Host, car and road safety advocate and LG TV Ambassador James Deakin.

This growing partnership between LG Philippines and Netflix Philippines further solidifies the bond between Filipinos and Koreans. This latest event is a reminder of the strength and reliability of the flourishing friendship between the Philippines and South Korea. 2019 marks the 70th anniversary of the friendship between the two nations, which started when the Philippines became the fifth country to recognize the Republic of Korea in 1949. Since then, the mutually beneficial relationship between the two countries has grown in every aspect: economically, technologically, culturally, and even in military and government support.

To honor the two countries’ thriving relationship and strengthen KCC’s mission to “deepen the understanding and appreciation of Korean culture among Filipinos by providing diverse cultural programs and events”, LG Philippines has donated five 55-inch UHD 4K TVs (four 55UK6300 and one 55UK6500) to the Korean Cultural Center (KCC) in the Philippines.

“It is an important celebration of the strong relationship between Korea and the Philippines, which started in 1949. To honor this friendship, we at LG always go beyond the call of duty to provide excellent home entertainment products and appliances to millions of Filipinos who have supported us from the beginning. It is our pleasure to contribute in strengthening the bond between our two countries,” shared LG Philippines Managing Director Mr. Inkwun Heo.

While LG has a number of TVs that are officially recommended by Netflix after passing a series of rigorous tests, the B8 4K OLED TV is one that stands out from the pack. It boasts a list of impressive features, starting with its top-of-the-line 55” 4K Cinema HDR display providing sharp contrast and vibrant colors. The B8 is made to deliver an immersive viewing experience powered by the Smart Brain α7 Intelligent Processor to make sure all TV functions and features are working together for a seamless user experience. Aside from its stunning visuals and cutting edge smart TV technology, LG has equipped the B8 4K OLED TV with a Dolby Atmos® sound system for a true cinematic experience in the comfort of your own home.

Take home the LG B8 OLED TV — the most competitively priced high quality OLED TV in the market today — for P89,991 (cash price). As a gift, every purchase of the LG B8 comes with six (6) free months of Netflix access, so the entire family can enjoy high quality entertainment at home.

Chienna Filomeno Feels #Bless to be a Vivo Endorser

Twenty-one-year-old Chienna Filomeno is the real deal when it comes to social media popularity. With Instagram followers that has racked up to more than a million, Chienna’s semi-charmed life is an open book. Juggling showbusiness, travels, and learning how to be a DJ, Chienna just added one more gig into her already long line of pursuits: A Vivo influencer. Chienna is part of the young and hip celebrities signed by the globally popular phone brand last September to be part of the Vivo Family.

To say that she was overwhelmed was an understatement when asked how she felt after being chosen to carry the Vivo brand. “[I am happy] that [Vivo] trusted me,” she gushes in a brief interview conducted during a photo shoot organized by Vivo.

Chienna, along with the other Vivo brand influencers, are all thrilled over Vivo’s latest pride, the V7+. Chienna could not get any more excited. She loves how she could take a clear, all-natural selfie with an array of filters to choose from right off the bat. One of these filters is the Bokeh effect, an aesthetic quality of out of focus blur in photos which adds drama and flair to any selfie. “My selfies are so clear and natural!” Chienna says referring to the V7+ 24 MP clearer selfie, front facing camera—one of the world’s first— with LED flash and smart photography algorithms provides for a clear-cut, crisp, and natural-looking photo. To further perfect a selfie, the V7+’s Special Face Beauty 7.0 feature brightens up photos and evens-out complexions so capturing a selfie-moment is not a problem in dimly-lit environment.

Chienna also appreciates how superb the sound came out while listening to music during an hour of country trip to Bangkok, owing it to the V7+ high fidelity sound feature which supports the latest sound technology and levels up mobile audio technology, enabling any music lover to enjoy rich and full rhythms.

Chienna She urges her fans to pick a Vivo smartphone for themselves “because it is super worth it,”. The young budding star will be appearing alongside her fellow Vivo brand endorsers in various mall tours to be mounted by the top smartphone brand. The four-month mall tour which commenced last September will run until the end of 2017 and will heavily endorse the Vivo V7+.
