Before turning 24, I feel this year is the turning point of my career where I think I have to actually get my life together but I still feel lost. I have lots of questions and sometimes we need a guide. I always wanted to get a TAROT reading – from last year’s mandala event I got a reading there are a lot of things going on. I am not 100% into it but its just a guide, nothing is wring and YOU are still the captain of your own ship to navigate.
Madam Neetu upon meeting her she has this calm aura but I felt nervous because I don’t know what she may see in may fate. I’ll be sharing tidbits of my reading because some are personal.
She starts off my, giving you a shakra (place it near your heart). She then, gets your full name and birthday. For me I was born June 17 – Planet Saturn, a karmic planet. Like If I do something, something happens. She advices I donate BLACK every saturday.
When it comes to the reading part, you can start of by GENERAL or SPECIFIC.I started with general, I have to shuffle the cards and then laid down the deck of cards and she said to pick 13 cards using your LEFT HAND. The left hand is associated with the right hemisphere of the brain (I can’t recall the actual ration why LEFT HAND). So I picked up 13 cards. She read for the coming 6 months will be GOOD, she said one of the best she’s seen. That’s when I started to calm down. She read I am privilege (looking at my mom – I am grateful to my parents), I am into luxury items and she tells me to TRAVEL a lot this year.
Going to the specifics, so I have to shuffle the cards, place them into decks, puts them down and pick using my LEFT hand.
My reading according to Ma’am Neetu – I’m just gonna give GENERAL okay? I don’t want to jinx it. Hope you guys would understand
CAREER: I have to WAIT. (This is the most general I can say). Good opportunities local and abroad – my choice. She emphasized to TRAVEL.
BLOG: Continue and more projects! Yay!
LOVELIFE: I don’t want to give all details but I have to be the woman I need to be (sorry the most CLICHE I could say) , I have to show that I am AVAILABLE, getover the PAST and then (In God’s will, me saying this), that PROTECTIVE someone will come.
At the end guys, I am still the one who is going to decide on my faith. So far its been a month, I got a lot of projects lately and hoping for the CLARITY Madam Neetu said.

GATORADE launches its water based electrolyte drink in LIME LEMON (personal fave), ORANGE AND BERRY! and introducing their #GACTIVEFITCREW spearheaded by fitspirations like Isabelle Daza, with his unbeliveable weight loss, Raymond Gutierrez and the dance trooper, Yassi Pressman.
Followed by The G-Active Fit Crew Nikki Torres founder of NT Sweat, TV and Movie Actress Aubrey Miles, Philippines’ Next Top Model host Maggie Wilson, Flyweight PH boxing instructor Vince Velasco, Arnold’s Army founder Arnold Aninion, G-Active Brand ambassadors Belle Daza and Raymond Gutierrez, Ida Paras of Ride Revolution, and DJ Patty Tiu,Hosted by Joyce Pring
Daza, is also co-owner and instructor at the spinning class studio Ride Revolution, is definitely not new to the fitness scene. For this bubbly beauty, fitness is a passion she pursues with gusto. She shared, “I have personally seen how committing to physical fitness can transform lives for the better and I want more people to experience that amazing feeling. I am very excited to team up with G Active to get more people moving and pursuing a more physically active lifestyle.”
Gutierrez has recently made headlines for his inspiring weight loss and journey towards a healthier body. “This whole process really changed my life and aside from enjoying the physical benefits, what really makes me happy is seeing how my journey has inspired other people,” he said. “I’m grateful for the opportunity to motivate and hopefully, educate, more people though G Active.” andhe said “0 sugar!, sign me up”
Meanwhile, Pressman, like most actresses her age, makes sure to commit to regular exercise and healthy food choices to stay in top shape. The Filipina-British actress’ first love—dancing—also helps keep her fit despite her hectic schedule. “There’s no shortcut to a healthy body. You really have to eat right and exercise,” she said. “What I really like about G Active is that it fits right into my active lifestyle. I’m definitely proud to be part of this amazing team.”
Admit it, we all follow them on Instagram, they all belong to an IT CREW, check their IG stories and wished we had the same determination and discipline. Something that should definitely look up to.
The event gave me the opportunity to meet Isabelle Daza, I do check her instagram stories because she is very insightful and informative. My mom really likes her too! plus she’s morena and pinay. Upon checking her Instagram there was one entry she was trying to talk with bunch of girls but apparently they just wanted a picture. I approached her and introduced myself and I kinda blanked after that. She’s so kind, I even asked her a short shoutout on my IG story – Thanks Belle! Doing cycling behind you made me feel like a POTATO and the other fit girls around me. Thank God I do RPM and Cycling in the gym (Hindi magpapahuli si teddy bear haha). I love RPM/CYCLING for years I’ve considered it a good workout not cardio but also upper body strength, core, speed and cardio. You can burn 600-800 calories.
Anyways remembering the good old nursing days, we would always recommend GATORADE as part of our health teaching for REHYDRATION because it contains electrolytes plus its affordable for patients especially in the public hospital. Back in the day the Colored energy drinks were more available, we mostly encouraged the light colored ones especially for dengue patients because it might be mistaken as blood in the stool( “feces”/”poop”). Generally Gatorade was highly endorsed Nurses.
Now maybe student-nurses/ millenials can endorse the G ACTIVE with no hesitation because it can cater to all since its water base and had electrolytes and still affordable – at 7/11 it cost like P24. And ofcourse best to rehydrate after workout or any intense activities which you generally sweat since our body also sheds off electrolytes to replace the electrolytes loss. The taste is more subtle compared to the energy drinks, If you may ask. IT HAS 0 SUGAR, Per serving 200 ml (1 bottle is 500 ML) 2 kcal, 0 fat, 0 trans and saturated fat, 0 cholesterol, 0 carbs, 86 Sodium (Where water goes, sodium follows), 28 potassium, 12 Niacin (Vit B3) and 0.4 Vit B6.
‘Finally a beauty destination for you” – a package greeting everytime you receive a fresh crisp sealed bag right in front of your doorstep. Before teaming up with BeautyMNL I have personally shopped for a contour kit and it got delivered in less than 3 days in perfect condition. What I love about BeautyMNL it is a one stop shop of everything beauty related. I love how most of the products are affordable and budge- friendly! Also the promotion of innovative local beauty products and availability of some international brands as well like INNIS FREE and more! Also how flexible the options on the terms of payment – from Credit card, to bank deposit and cash payment upon delivery. Instructions are easy and the site is manageable.
Lately I barely use makeup because I sweat easily especially during summer and maybe sometimes I admit “katamaran”. Since Alicia Keys started to promote NO MAKE UP and natural beauty I got inspired too, but I admit I don’t have the best bare skin around. In all fainess I managed to still pull off that college student vibe.
So this beauty haul I got is entirely dedicated to skin care
Acne Pimple Master Patch (24 patches)
This product is so effective! You start first by cleansing the zit/pimple then choose a suitable size of patch and let it stay while I did mine while I was sleeping and the next day poof! The patch absorb the pus and oil.
I got this on a special promo that came with a FREE voucher from ORIGINS andSKIN GENIE LIP & CHEEK TINT in tulip red. Another thing in BeautyMNL you can find great deals, packages and discounts time to time!
Apple Cider Vinegar Toner and Soap
The rave about the benefits of Apple cider vinegar is beyond amazing ! When I saw SKIN GENIE and all their APPLE CIDER VINEGAR PRODUCTS, no hesitation, instant click and MUST HAVE! We know the tons of benefits of apple cider vinegar when it comes to health (My mom would drink teaspoons in a day because it serves as detox and decreases appetite – we are talking about the legit ACV)
What I like of SKIN GENIE on their apple cider vinegar , It doesn’t smell like APPLE CIDER VINEGAR and it comes in affordable prices.
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR TONER with vodka and witch hazel comes in a spray bottle (100 ml) – after cleasning, spray on a cotton pad and then apply on your face. It contains minerals and potassium that help regenerate the skin helping in PH balance and removes dead cells plus excess oil.
The SOAP on the other hand contains antibacterial properties to help prevent acne and skin infections – Good for all ages. I saw a review about it, that it helps get rid of BACKNE which is my main concern now. Can’t wait to see more of the results in the coming days so far I get less backne nowadays
TIPID TIP: Slice into pieces in order to conserve the soap. In applying damp skin and massagr a light foaming lather for 1-2 mins to get the maximum whitening effect then rinse.
NATURAL BLEACHING MIST (Face & Body)
Another SKIN GENIE innovation ! Natural bleaching mist which helps lightens complexion and claims to clear blemishes. You use it by spritzing over face and body after shower. Plus it is a good moisturizer and mood booster.I struggle with so called beauty marks and scars all over my face and body – can’t wait to see the difference in the coming weeks. It has no bleach in the ingredients but it contains ALKALINE WATER, CALAMANSI EXTRACT,RIND OIL, ACV, Coconut cider vinegar, pink grapefruit extract (the scent in a very good acid way that smells good), MINT, ALPHA HYDROXY ACID, FULVIC ACID, SODIUM ASCORBATE, SODIUM BICARB & BENZOATE
FLAUNT THY LASHES
I have “umbok” eyelashes, It got trimmed when I was young and it never grew any longer. I get really jealous with people with natural long and thick eyelashes. Apparently FTL contains castor oil which helps hair grow longer and I love how good it smells. Just apply to lashes ad eyebrow twice a day. Leave it overnight/whole day.While applying you get this tingly minty feeling.
OLAY CLEAN MOISTURE WITH COCONUT MILK
Since I got back from HK, whenever I travel my skin always gets dry now I am back time for my skin to recoup and I really love Olay body washes ever since, it makes my skin soft, refreshing, long-lasting and gives me that confidence for the entire day.
Tutuban Center has the reputation of having the most affordable finds that’s why people continue patronize and bargain what they are looking for.
Years have past, Tutuban Center has developed and modernize despite that Pinoys still continue to patronize the tiangge because it is AFFORDABLE and CHEAP.
Since it’s back to school season plus the abnormal bedweather you can still shop and find great deals at Tutuban Mall with P1000.
With P1000, I have to use my money wisely and within the budget so I decided to shop at the Tiangge for experience and put into the test my tawad skills (I’ll be giving recos). At the commercial area of the mall there are affordable finds to see also and boutiques to shop for but with the P1000 budget I personally feel I would get great deals at the Tiangge and it has been awhile since I did some shopping at the Tiangge – specific area THE PRIME BLOCK where the tiangge is loacted. The ground floor most of clothes, shoes, other fashion items and miscellaneous. The second floor – gowns, plants, toy stores and some boutiques same as ground floor.
First, in my mind and criteria in the list I have to shop for “OOTD” ofcourse – a place I would recommend is called MURA DITO(far end of the tiangge but can be easily spotted), the name definitely catch my eye. Usually some fashion boutiques may have the basic and some maybe tacky but MURA DITO EXCEEDED my expectations on SERIOUS LEVELS. The clothes and fashion finds are all up to date and all in trend and the items are unlike other fashion boutiques in the tiangge were they have similar pieces. Mura Dito have pieces that are unusual but in trend. They have fashion pieces that they are the only ones who this specific design trend. – AFFORD PA!
I planned to get a denim jacket (for my recent HK trip) because it is trendy this summer but I was able to try this PINK DENIM jacket that suited me more than the classic acid wash denim color. For P350, I was a ble to bargain for it for P300 – such a good deal. The fabric is fit for the hot Asian weather and the fabric is LIGHT. I would definitely come back to shop for more!
Next was shopping for SCHOOL SUPPLIES and GREAT DEALS – Definitely I would recommend just at the front of MURA DITO calledORIG NA MURA. Total of P600, I was able to find school supplies and great deals such as P20.00 Falsies set and a Insect spray that is MASSIVE for P110.00
AT Orig na mura, you have to leave your stuff but bring your valuables. For back-to-school supplies (more of art supplies) I got for myself and my sisters I got like the sets of pens and paints at the cost of P100+ (Won’t go over P200+ like in other commercial bookstores). The paint brushes are like P6-P14 (depending on the size) and a correction tape that cost like P50. Plus I found a set of HAPPY BIRTHDAY letter candles for P50ish since its my birthday month!
Last on the list, I should get an item for rainy season, I needed to have slippers in my bag since work is working distance from home and don’t want to get my footwear puddled in mud. So I was able to find this slipper (crocs style ish with elevation) from a store in the NU-9 area (not for sure of the location but the owner of the spot manages also sells party supplies, super afford! the number balloons(medium size) are about P24 each compared to commercial stores that they sell for P60.
There are a lots of boutiques in the tiangge worth going for and worth your money! For the fashionaistas they have everything from clothes, shoes and accessories you just need a budget and LOADS OF PATIENCE!
While I was fitting the shirt, I couldn’t imagine that the fabric was made out from plastic bottles (11 bottles to be exact). The fabric is light & thin and the print is stylish ofcourse curated by Solenn Heausaff. Hope in a bottle’s advocacy is to help build classrooms around the Philippines – 37 classrooms and counting
This collaboration, a significantly designed shirt would cost PHP 2000 and it would be available in a pop up HOPE Vendo machine which would be announce by HOPE IN THE BOTTLE’s FB Page and Instagram – better hit the follow and like botton.
So the shirts come in 3 designs, One with a PINEAPPLE on the front and the other one is with a CHILD “BATA” and the word “PAG-ASA” meaning HOPE IN 2 versions. The sleeves have custom patches beautifully crafted and beaded. All Solenn’s beautiful sketches brought to life in these fashionable shirts.
Apparently 200 shirts will only be available then if you weren’t able to catch the vendo machine in areas near you. The shirts will also be available at ZALORA.
Intriguing on how the shirts are made but I can’t answer the technicality of it – Globis is the spearhead who is responsible in creating the fabric from bottles. This innovation is first in the Philippines and inspired from NEW YORK FASHION WEEK.
Everytime I wear this shirt it reminds me how this can help build classroom’s around the Philippines. We do have brothers and sisters especially in the remote areas who would dreamed a good education and have better life, Having a degree is definitely important, and the child are the future.

Matteo Guidecelli, the man of the hour has the A+ game for everything despite we know how hardworking he is and his family background. We know he is privilege but he remains humble about it. He is at the right age and has the mind set already to save in order to secure for his upcoming future. He says that given the chance to bring back time he should have started to have a policy since college and he would encourage that for others.
“If you have extra money just put it there” Matteo says.
When it comes to his relationship goals, he remains private about it but definitely one in the books. Face it he has everything and people are just waiting him to pop the question with Sarah G. Such a perfect pair and both good people.
It makes sense for him to collaborate with SLAMCI and making vlogs to boost financial literacy in the country, #MAKEITMUTUAL Campaign which is vital for everybody because we know life is unpredictable. All of us have goals that we want to achieve and enjoy life, while doing that we also need a backfall (PLAN A – Z).

Summer can be draining and at some point our body’s immunity goes down because of the shift of seasons. Living in the city you can be exposed to pollution and others. Plus for me, I do work in a hospital contained environment which makes me exposed to all sorts of viruses and bacteria – it comes with my job that’s why I was advised to take multivitamins and eating the right stuff. Our body cells need certain nutrients in order for us to be healthy and fight all sorts of bacteria. Being healthy starts in the inside and reflects in the outside.
Keep your summer fun by staying healthy. While it’s tempting to just explore the great outdoors or hit the beach this season, it’s absolutely important we take extra precautions while spending time under the sun. By taking to heart these simple reminders, you can protect yourself and your loved ones from the harmful effects of the summer season’s excessive heat.
#1 The sun isn’t always your friend. While the heat starts to rise at about 9am in the morning, the temperature is at its peak between 11am to 3pm every day. It’s best to stay indoors during this time to avoid the sun’s harmful UV rays and overheating. But if you absolutely need to go out, make sure to wear loose breathable clothing and apply at least SPF 15 sunscreen to exposed parts of your body. A hat and sunglasses are a must too, as intense amounts of sunlight are harmful to your eyes.
#2 Keep cool. The easiest way to keep cool all day is to stay hydrated. Cold water and iced (but diluted) fruit juice is best. Any drink with high amounts of sugar, or those with alcohol and caffeine should be avoided. If you’re at home, stay in the coolest part of the house and keep it ventilated. Use shades or light-colored curtains to block the sunlight. And for the really hot moments in the day, don’t hesitate to take a cold bath. Make sure to keep a look out for your loved ones who may be unable to cope with the heat.
#3 Eat healthier. Higher temperatures are dangerous for those with existing heart conditions. And that’s why this season, it’s even more important to keep ourselves healthy by eating the right kind of food. This summer, when you’re craving for a sweet treat – eat fresh fruit instead. When eating out or in a party, pick salads over other offerings. Just make sure you don’t over indulge when putting too much dressing. And above all, add more veggies into your home-cooked meals. All of this will keep you fit, helping you better withstand the summer heat.
#4 Exercise wisely. Now is not the right season to do too much cardio all at once. But if you must, do cooler cardio activities like swimming in cold water. It’s also best to shorten and divide your workout time, and do them only before or after the day’s hottest periods. If you want to take your exercise outside, make sure to pick shady and breezy spots. But for the summer, it is ideal to do your workouts in a properly ventilated and/or air-conditioned indoor gym.
When you take these reminders to heart, you’ll surely have a fun and healthy summer. But just to make sure you get a healthy boost, you can also take a Generika Drugstore Nutraceutical that’s right for you. Nutrawell Collagen with Astaxanthin and Hyaluronic Acid is perfect for those who want to protect and nourish their skin despite the harsh summer sun. Its key component, Astaxanthin, helps safeguard the skin from harmful UV rays.http://www.krishgeek.com/age-well-with-nutrawell/ (My previous review)
For those who want to improve their heart health, they can take Nutrawell Garlic + Hawthorne Berry + Gingko Biloba. This nutraceutical enhances blood circulation throughout the body and increases oxygen utilization in the heart.
Those seeking overall wellness will love the Actimed Multivitamins + Minerals. With its balanced formulation of vitamins and minerals, it can help the body cope even in stressful conditions. As an added boost,

The movie revolves with 2 characters Joma (played by Jericho Rosales) and Diane (Bela Padilla) both experiencing their own series of ups & downs. Joma has a serious gambling(he has his reasons why) habit and Diane struggling to keep their pharmacy business going while her Dad has problems with his health (Kidney problems).
Till one day, Joma decides to test his faith and rely his luck on the “Eye of the Mountain Tiger” or “Eye of the Tiger” HAHA which paved a way to meet Diane – he believes she is his LUCKY CHARM. They both agreed 50/50 on their wins everytime they hit the jackpot. As the time they spend together and the level of attachment gets stronger – feelings develop towards each other. The catch is you can’t fall in love because luck may shed off. That starts to test them.
There was kilig from beginning to end! The movie had some funny quotes and funny supporting cast played by the tandem of Chollo Baretto and Kim Molina. The movie never had a dull moment and captured brillantly by Dan Villegas (Director) – The movie has also content and maturely executed (straight to the point). Bela and Jericho Rosales brought kilig in the right paces of the movie plus they portrayed the emotions each character needed to showcase. You can catch so many morals from the story, that sometimes its not bad to believe in luck but I personally believe more in faith – If things were meant to be, It will be for you. Just don’t force it.

MANILA – Last year, global technology innovator LG Electronics blew away the Mobile World Congress with its G5 smartphone, garnering the most awards among all the other mobile powerhouses. Because of its worldwide success, expectations of tech experts were high in this year’s MWC run, which launched its successor LG G6.
Today, two months after its global unveiling—where global tech experts Wired, Android Authority, Digital Trends, PCMag and TeachRadar hailed the G6 as the best smartphone of MWC 2017, the multi-award-winning device officially opened its doors to the Philippine market through a massive event at SM Mega Fashion Hall. Consumers, media partners and celebrities gathered together to experience LG’s latest flagship, which projects itself as the ideal social media smartphone for any digitally-savvy user.
Endless display, compact body
Through consumer insights, research, development and innovation, LG G6 goes back to basics, empowering users to do more with its large screen while being compact enough to fit comfortably in one hand. It comes with a 5.7-inch QHD+ FullVision display, and for the first time ever in a smartphone, a highly functional 18:9 screen-to-body ratio. Compared to conventional 16:9 aspect ratio displays, the 18:9 format offers more viewing space and a more immersive experience when streaming videos and playing games.
Even with its large screen, the smartphone is easy to hold. Sculpted from aluminum and glass, the G6 offers a sleek minimalist design with rounded corners, extremely narrow bezels and a perfectly flat black—no camera bump to avoid or protect.
Video, audio and picture quality at its peak
More than the breakthrough 18:9 format and complementary design, LG G6 also stakes its claim as the first smartphone to feature Dolby Vision technology. But not only does it support Dolby Vision, it also supports HDR 10, both of which are standards for High Dynamic Range (HDR), the picture quality technology which allows a wider range of color, luminosity and detail. With HDR content from Netflix and Amazon on the rise, users can watch popular shows in stunning HDR quality on the G6, enhanced by superior audio from its Hi-Fi Quad DAC feature.
The camera technology of the G6 is also naturally advanced with its standard and wide angle settings for both the rear and front cameras, dual 13MP rear cameras (including a 125-degree lens on the wide angle) and an expanded 100-degree field of view with the wide angle 5MP front camera. The G6 features Android’s first-ever Square Camera Mode, with a function that can divide the 18:9 screen into two identical squares for simultaneous photo taking, editing and uploading, as well as creative Instagram shots. Users can also up their food photography game with the popular Food Mode function.
Bar-raising durability and user experience
The G6’s durability is further developed with its water and dust resistance. It can be immersed in up to 1.5 meters of water for as long as 30 minutes, and users can worry less about accidental drops and other rough environments during everyday use. For greater reliability against overheating, the G6 is designed with a metal frame and heat pipe to dissolve heat. The powerful device has passed 14 different military-standard 810G tests involving rain, fog, humidity and temperature, among others.
User experience is also levelled up with a built-in Google Assistant to work seamlessly and intuitively with LG apps, empowering users to get fast answers, manage everyday tasks, enjoy the best music and videos and search the G6 more quickly and efficiently than ever. With the remote after-service utilizing artificial intelligence, the more Google Assistant is used, the more personalized it becomes because it knows more about the user.
Now in Philippine shores
Prominent personalities like LA Tenorio and Sharlene San Pedro graced the event and encouraged the public to try out the smartphone, while respected industry names shared their own acclaims from different points of view. Social media influencer Janeena Chan raved about the G6 camera’s square feature and wide-angle mode while Spot.ph’s Owen Maddela shared his experience with the Food Mode. Director of local blockbuster “I’m Drunk, I Love You” JP Habac commended the G6’s video taking and Dolby Vision capabilities, while the Hi-Fi Quad DAC audio quality was lauded by Yael Yuzon, the lead singer of popular music band Sponge Cola.
“We’re so excited to introduce to the Philippine market our newest mobile innovation,” LG Mobile Philippines VP Jay Won said. “It received excellent feedback from tech experts worldwide because we listened to customers’ modern needs. The G6 went back to basics and took smartphone design, convenience and overall user experience to the next level. With the G6, we hope that Filipinos will be able to expand their capabilities using the big, immersive screen that fits in one hand.”
LG G6 is now available in the Philippines in Astro Black, Ice Platinum and Mystic White retailing for Php 37,990.00. From April 17 to 30, 2017, buyers can avail of LG’s pre-order promo and enjoy exclusive freebies worth Php 8,990 (an LG G6 case and LG Tone Infinitum bundle) as well as a one-year extended warranty.
