Tim Hortons #WarmWishes

Happy Holidays! 

You guys know how much I love Tim Hortons, at the launch of their warm wishes campaign – this campaign is about appreciation for those who think deserve a treat this Christmas. Fill out the name of the chosen person, their address, a message and stating what they deserve this coming holiday – It can be simple and sweet. 

To hit the festive spirit they have introduced their Christmas menu which will be available on November 6. 3 drinks and 1 donut. I personally like the Rudolph Red velvet latte since I am more of the coffee side and for the berry flavorthey had I liked the Merry Berry Hot Chocolate which is the perfect sweetness for the coming winter. It’s like warm hugs in a cup. 

The Holiday season is the time to spread warmth and happiness. Tim Hortons®, Canada’s iconic café and bake shop, kicks off the happiest time of the year with the launch of the Tim Hortons® #WarmWishes Campaign in the Philippines. Now brewing in six restaurants located in four cities (Taguig City, Manila, Quezon City, Makati City), the brand continues to expand and is set to open more restaurants this Christmas.

The #WarmWishes campaign rests on the brand pillars of warmth, community, connection, friendliness, and fun. Guests are encouraged to visit participating Tim Hortons® restaurants to drop a wish in the Cup of Cheer for someone deserving this Christmas season. Whether it is a person, community or local charity, Tim Hortons® will spread as much warmth and joy by fulfilling these wishes.

“This campaign is truly meaningful as it provides our Guests the opportunity to share everything good and joyful about Christmas with someone in need. We’re excited to help spread the warmth of the holidays through simple and heartfelt gestures, so let’s do our best to overflow the Cup of Cheer with good deeds,” says Rickie Yap, Tim Hortons Philippines President & CEO.

In addition to the Cup of Cheer, Tim Hortons® is delighted to release its Holiday Menu and Merchandise collection. Beginning November 6, Guests will enjoy a wide array of delectable Christmas treats from Tim Hortons® that includes the Merry Berry Choco Chill, Merry Berry Hot Chocolate, Rudolph Red Velvet Latte, and the Christmas Log Donut. In December, Guests are in for more treats as the Christmas Menu will further expand to include delicious baked goods that Tim Hortons® has always been known for. 

L-R:  Merry Berry Choco Chill,Merry Berry Hot Chocolate, Rudolph Red Velvet Latte

Chocolate lovers will find pleasure in the Merry Berry Choco Chill, a blended frozen hot chocolate drink with strawberry flavor, topped with whipped cream and dark chocolate flakes. Those who look for the classics will love the Merry Berry Hot Chocolate, a bittersweet hot chocolate drink with whipped cream topping and strawberry sauce. Coffee enthusiasts will go for the Rudolph Red Velvet Latte, a bittersweet blend of espresso and red velvet with hints of chocolate and cocoa topped with red velvet powder. Not to be forgotten is the Christmas Log Donut, dipped in chocolate with dark chocolate flakes, drizzled with strawberry filling and topped with a fusion of biscuit balls, caramel, and chocolate.

How I Passed for Advanced Lasik Procedure at Shinagawa Ortigas

I’ve been wearing specs my entire life since I was a kid. Imagine, I was the  super chubby girl with eyeglasses. It also kinda runs in the family, My dad and my sisters. My 3 siblings and I are four-eyed. My mom wears reading glasses, I don’t know it it counts because of the whole aging thing.

As I got older, during highschool and college I tend to just hang my glasses because I feel I look better without glasses. It was when after I graduated I tried wearing contact lenses, it was a hassle because of how busy I am, I tend to forget to put solution now and then,  in a matter of 6 hours my eyes get irritated and red. Back in college, I didn’t want to wear contacts because there were studies that it lead to dry eyes.

Growing up I was socially awkward (I know it is hard to believe the person I am today), I didn’t look straight and my friends till today still tease me the way I look at people before. It was just a phase, glad I am over it. Till now I couldn’t find a logical reason on how I look at people before. Especially when it came to my crushes, I can’t even imagine how weird I was haha. 

I remembered meeting an optha specialist in the gym, forgot her name though. This was during college and she told me that at age 24 is the perfect age to get lasik because I was planning on my 18th birthday to get the procedure. Her professional advice was at the age of 24, that is already most like likely our permanent vision. If as early as that time my vision can still change plus considering lifestyle.

Now that I turned 24 this year, It’s about time.

So If you guys are planning to get lasik at SHINAGAWA, make sure you don’t wear contact lenses for 7 days to get exactly the grade of your eyes. The test runs for about 3 hours atleast so it’s better to come in early. Before that set an appointment. I’ll be putting the details below. 

Another REMINDER : DON’T DRIVE home after the test. 

TIP: Bring SHADES and JACKET. You’ll know why after reading. 

For your information, Shinagawa perfroms advanced lasik, not the traditional lasik we all hear growing up like going under the knife stories and the complications that you may go blind etc. 

To differentiate them quickly, the TRADITIONAL LASIK PROCEDURE, (microkeratome) – this is the instrument that cuts an evenly thin lining of cornea. According to studies it may lead to possible complications. 

Compared to the ADVANCED LASIK PROCEDURE, is completely laser which don’t lead to complications. Preparation would take about 2 hours but the procedure would take just 8 minutes (both eyes). Here is how it goes: 

  • Corneal Flap is cut and prepared using a femtosecond laser.
  • Flap is folded to one side by the surgeon
  • Using an excimer laser, the connective tissue is reshaped
  • The flap which was created and lifted is then put back into its original position.
  • SHINAGAWA’S lasik, gives you functional vision within 6-12 hours following the ADVANCED LASIK surgery with better technologies, you can expect high definition vision and stability in a much shorter time. 

Sorry for the long intro, So to the point on how I passed for the screening. 

Like I said, It would take atleast 3 hours. You first write your basic and health related information. Then wait for your turn. They have 2 testing sites one in an open lighted area and the other one is the dark room. 

TIP: The center is kinda cold, I suggest to bring a JACKET. 

First stop is at the OPEN AREA, they check your vision and eye pressure using from one machine to the other. Then  next at the DARK ROOM, different machines were used  to test your vision. I can’t explain specifically each machine but you’ll be hopping from one machine to the other in a jiffy. 

Then you wait again, The 3rd test, is about reading from afar by covering one eye – During my time it was about finding the open part of a circle. The Circle starts as BIG then becomes small. Then you do the test all over again this time with grade. Then they also check for any color blindness

After that, every 5 minutes for 3 times my eyes were given dilating drops. It made my eyes blurry and sensitive to light, Thank goodness I brought shades. So I have to wait for an hour for my results.

TIP: They have a nearby Starbucks and Jollibee. 

After an hour, I talked to Doctor and he said I PASSED. Yay! I was a bit worried because my dad did not passed  his  lasik screen test abroad and we have almost the same grade but his is a bit higher. Mine is 2.5 something and his is 3. something, I think. I’ll be sharing my actual results maybe on my next post. 

So SHINAGAWA, had an ongoing promo for October 68k instead of 140K which is the original price. This promo entitles to BDO CREDIT CARD HOLDERS, 12 Months to pay and 0% INTEREST. 

Wish me all the best on my upcoming procedure, I know I am in good hands and I will be blogging about it after 🙂 

Stay tune for their upcoming possible promos and they don’t only specialize in lasik but also dentistry and other aesthetics as well. LIKE them on facebook https://www.facebook.com/ShinagawaLasikCenter/ and FOLLOW them on instagram @SHINAGAWACLINIC

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+.

How the Vivo V7+ Fits Maris Racal’s Lifestyle

Newest Vivo influencer Maris Racal has sure gone a long way from her first TV stint as one of the teen housemates of Pinoy Big Brother All In where she eventually placed second to the season’s Big Winner Daniel Matsunaga. Known for her sweet singing voice earning her the title “Singing Sunshine ng Davao”, Maris or Mariestella in real life grew up in a musically-inclined family and is also part of a sing-and-dance all-girl group in home network ABS-CBN.

Maris has already a few accomplishments under her belt as a budding celebrity, but she still considers her recent Vivo endorsement a dream come true. “I have always wanted to [endorse a phone brand],” Maris says in a brief interview held in between photo shoots for the top smartphone brand. “That is why when my handler told me [that I have been chosen to endorse Vivo], I was so happy.”

Maris was introduced as one of the Vivo influencers at the launch of the young and hip global smartphone brand’s latest pride the V7+. She is part of the fresh roster of Vivo endorsers known collectively as the Vivo Family. On top of being an independent talent, Maris also makes up half of the “Marni go” love team with Inigo Pascual, another Vivo influencer and member of the pioneer batch of the Vivo Family. The twosome was formed by chance when the duo made headlines when they performed onstage for Inigo’s digital concert.

Apart from being part of “Marnigo”, Maris has a lot of good things on her plate and all the highlights of her days can now be preserved in memories through her own Vivo V7+. “I look super fresh [in my selfies] even without make-up,” she happily remarks, swearing by the selfie-taking prowess of the Vivo V7+. The V7+ boasts of one of the world’s first 24MP 24MPclearer selfie, front facing camera with LED flash and smart photography algorithms provides for a clear-cut, crisp, and natural-looking photo. To further enhance photos, the V7+ packs in a built in Bokeh effect which creates an aesthetic quality of out of focus blur in photos.

Being a musician herself, Maris is also thrilled over the V7+’s fully-upgraded AK4376A Hi-Fidelity audio chip. This V7+ feature supports the latest sound technology and levels up mobile audio technology, enabling any music lover to enjoy rich and full rhythms. This audio chip also plays music which answers to the mood or scenario at hand.

Maris will be part of a series of Vivo V7+ mall shows alongside love team Inigo Pascual and other Vivo Family members. The four-month mall tour which commenced last September will heavily endorse the Vivo V7+ with fun-packed activities and performances from the Vivo Family; the tour will be doing the rounds until the end 2017.

MARY KAY PHILIPPINES

Mary Kay had thought me on how to improve my skin routine. Not only that they produce quality beauty products, they also give you wisdom and know where you can improve on your skin routine. Then you don’t have to go overboard with bold products. They are more of creating a subtle and everyday natural look. 

We’ve heard about MARY  KAY PRODUCTS but did you know they do house visits to conduct beauty consultations  facials and free make up session.  You get to personally try all the products plus an extra charge if you want a way more extensive facial. 

So here is a brief of what I’ve learned from MARY KAY.  They turned themselves into a business venture for women to learn about beauty, create a community and promote wellness. You can be a member, they conduct seminars and workshops. You can start with an amount of P1500 –  an entire start up kit with basic tools and samples already plus you get a stylish bag as well. 

So here are the products that I’ve tried, personally its really GOOD and very light on the skin. Then the numbering is according to which you start first and categorize them according to areas. 

HANDS: (prep wash hands)

  1. EXFOLIATE – SATIN HANDS Shea butter scrub 
  2. SATIN HANDS NOURISHING CREAM and PROTECTOR SOFTENER

FACE (prep washing of face)

for TEENS (mostly advised for teens but people aged 20+ can try and use it) 

  1. BOTANICAL EFFECTS Cleansing gel – I’ve been using this for a few months with the exfoliating electrical brush, it’s refreshing and I love the citrus scent of it. 
  2. BOTANICAL EFFECTS Moisturizing gel 

for ADULTS

  1. TIME WISE 3 – IN – CLEANSER
  2. TIME WISE AGE FIGHTING MOISTURIZER

Basically just these 2, no toner and then you proceed to make up.

CC Cream and Foundation

03. Use of CC Cream first, it’s a tinted moisturizer and prevents sweat plus with SPF

04. Since I have oily skin its highly recommended you go for MATTE FOUNDATION (TIME WISE). Their foundation is their best selling product and it’s true It doesn’t wear off easily, still intact and even though I’ve sweat the entire day, my skin becomes luminous and gets whiter (in a good way).  

05. Tap it off with loose powder. So here is the AFTER look. 

Basically this is an ALL NATURAL MAKE UP LOOK, then also you can add a shade of lippie. You can check their catalog of moisturize and matte lippies.

Also to add some pop of colors to the eyes and make them fuller they have mascara and an eyeshadow palette. I noticed their eyeshadow palette are more of pink shades. This is like for the everyday look that would make you look fresh even after sweating a lot. The more you sweat, the more glowing you are which I proved it. BTW They also have skin line for men if you may asked because compared to others they cater specifically for MEN. 

SO HERE IS A BEFORE AND AFTER 🙂 

BEFORE (This is after application of all products)

AFTER

You may contact AIMEE  (09199 395 0913),  RUBI (0945 346 0244) and JACQUI (0933 860 9450)
