Cool Summer colors by Caronia Nail Polish

Hey girls! Its almost summer, and I know  us girls, are planning  our summer itinerary and outfits too! Add some pop of color to your outfit and  don’t forget to paint your nails (Dapat complete!) because I have something to share.

Caronia Nail Polish launches their “Popsicle collection”, These are 4 cool summer colors ( 2 of them are in matte!) and yes, they are budget friendly and you can buy them in any local store or grocery near you.

Caronia has improved and they do follow and update themselves with the trends. Adding hues and shades that fit every season and matches the young and hip vibe taste. Quality has improved also, now it is easy to apply and full coverage.

Tickle your senses with colors inspired by the most loved happy food, ICE CREAM!.

My two faves are Peach perfect and brain freeze in matte. (It really depends on your personality and what matches your skin tone and outfit too – well its all about how you present yourself! Summer you have to look good with your OOTDs)

Peach Perfect
Peach Perfect

If you opt for a sophisticated look going out and you’re into neutrals/nude shades like me go for PEACH PERFECT – its a shade of nude with a slight hint of pink for a rosy look.

 

 

 

 

If you like a sunny, bright and vibrant  yellow shade go for LEMON COOL “happy yellow”.

Lemon Cool

Sunrise Tequila

Brain Freeze
Brain Freeze

And yes, you’ve heard it in MATTE, Go bold and wild with TEQUILA SUNRISE – It is a subdued red orange in matte finish. And something subtle. mysterious and yet alluring BRAIN FREEZE – plain blue shade in matte finish.

Tip: For loud social and beach parties, I advice the lemon cool, tequila sunrise and brain freeze. 

I tried all the colors and here is a video clip on my fb page  https://www.facebook.com/krishgeek/posts/10209204846987147?notif_t=feedback_reaction_generic&notif_id=1459572222313546

Feel free to comment  below  and I would like to hear which is your fave and tips too!

 

 

Kitchenails Trinoma: SCRUB AND SALON

Kitchenails Trinoma – SCRUB AND SALON

KN19

KN6

KN4

At Kitchenails, its all about pampering you like a real princess – since they address their customers as “PRINCESS” and you might feel the urge to grab some bite to eat during your sesh because everything is all gourmet inspired, from the interiors and the equipment they used. But for me right after, I just felt so relax with the treatments I got and just wanted to go home and chill on my cozy bed.

 

Fusion of love for culinary, business and wellness, Kitchenails is the brainchild of Ms. Jean Uvero. Kitchenails have also a branch at Alabang Town Center that had just opened recently as well. And Kitchenails is familiar around Katipunan area as well.

KN3

Now this time, Kitchenails brings color and feeds our senses at the North. Located at the 3rd floor of Trinoma (Wing near Powermac center and Garden area). Glad to be attending the opening last January 28, 2016 and Thanks to #TEAMALDOUSPR for the invite! (Hi Aldous!)

First impression is how well put together the concept is and it is definitely a unique SCRUB AND SALON place. They do not label themselves as nailspa and massage place but they do offer mani /pedi and massage as well – that’s  how they differentiate themselves with the different wellness and beauty spots popping up in the metro. The ambiance and vibe of the place is very relaxing and cozy because of their comfortable couches (they have single and wide couches for group of 3) and the place is spacey.

KN9

KN11

KN8

The rates still fall under “affordable” category, The most common Best entree:  Manicure -PHP 350 , Pedicure -PHP 450 and both PHP 750.  They have SINGLE SERVE (Design for 1 serving at a time, for you) and ENTREE (SELECT), A flavorful total experience designed to soothe and relax you – You choose your scrub, mask, oil and aperitif.

click for the FULL MENU

Their best sellers are under the CHEF SPECIALS (A unique and delectable experience for luxurious pampering). Manicure -PHP 500, Pedicure -PHP 600 and both PHP 950.

Before the treatment, they asked for your order with what service(s) you choose and how you prefer it. It’s like how you order in a restaurant.

KN5

I chose the KEY LIME PIE (best seller under CHEF SPECIAL and I really like Lime/Citrus scent) – Citrus blend of clean lime, lime blossom and lemon grass in ultra fresh, and modern scent. Great as an all around spa treatment!

KN2

KN21

Like I said they used baking and kitchen tools as equipment for their treatments – They started  to soak my hands on this baking tray, then they used a whisk for mixing and applied the scrub and mask as you were being iced like a cake (you could really smell the scrub and mask while being applied). And then they wrapped my arms like I was a human gourmet haha – for the musk to be absorbed and waited on it (They used a timer also like in baking). Same as for my feet, but they used a frying pan instead. After that you choose your kind massage (aperitif): Acupressure, Swedish, Detox and Signature). I chose DETOX – to help burn my fats. And then proceeded with my mani and pedi. The treatments took like less than an hour. The ingredients they use for their treatments are all organic.

KN12KN14

ICING!
ICING!

KN13KN15

KN17

Other treatments under CHEF SPECIAL:

LEMON SQUARES– A dash of spicy ginger and soothing lemongrass, provides a perfect escape.

CANDIED ORANGES – Unique and incredible blend of mandarin honey citrus and spices that will surely tingle and tickle your senses.

SPICED PLUM PANNACOTTA – Delightful and delectable fusion of sweet vanilla and wild plum, this scent is a big hit for life’s sweet moments.

VERY BERRY MUFFIN – Rejuvenating blend of berries, citrus and sugarcane, popular for both men and women. This treatment is a winner!

So I highly recommend Kitchenails,  if you are looking for a unique place to get pampered, chill with your friends and take instagram worthy shots and selfies with your besties. It’s all worth it! You deserve to be treated like a ROYALTY 🙂

I am not really a fashion or  style blogger though I love dressing up, posing & taking OOTDs, shopping ofcourse! and I love fashion (wanted to take up a fashion course when I was younger- but ended up with another path, that’s another story to tell and I grew up with brands because of my mom and the influence of her work place) I still have a lot of room to improve and yes, I do feel insecure to be around fashion bloggers who have their A game when it comes to fashion and style. Fit bloggers get to dress anything they  want,  look their best and dress way better, compare to me I have to be certain because if it looks good for my body type (I am a BIG girl kasi). But I do admire fashion & style bloggers, YES I do. I have a lot of friends who are and I get to meet, love the wisdom they share and nice to keep up with them when it comes to trends, so much good and trendy fashion & style bloggers today also forgot to mention beauty & fitness bloggers too J

But it’s okay, I love my body but like I said I have to improve. I’m back to my what you call balik alindog program after gaining much during my board exam, it has been a struggle and Im glad to lose atleast 15 kilos, aiming to lose more and I prefer to take it slowly because its already a LIFESTYLE. Well at the end of the day its all about how you carry yourself. That’s why I decided to fit in the category lifestyle because you can blog anything under the sun.

This year, got out of my comfort zone and collab with my Ms. Gaile, her shop called “Shopaholic Therapy”. FB PAGE: Shopaholic Therapy Online Shop and Intsagram: @shopaholictherapy_osph. The shop sells everything from clothes, bags, shoes and makeups. Affordable and trendy! For inquries please Viber  #09154336325.

Nude and Brown shade lippies are back! Very 90s and I do recall my make-up artist during my 20th birthday saying that brown shade lippies suits me. Dark brown lippies for me when I go to events and light nude shade for everyday use,

 

MAC Lustre Matte Rouge Alevres shade lippie number 12.

And the CROP TOP, especially when its black goes with anything from casual – pair it with a high waist pants, shorts and midi skirt (mostly trending  nowadays) to “Athleisure”(If its like air dry quality), you’ve seen Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner rock them- pair it with fitted and hugging track pants (the air dry ones) and leggings for as long its high waist. If you can rock them in Palazo pants and high waist pants whether ripped or not, go for it . Covered or not  it’s  still how you present yourself!

Wisdom : “The Intern” Movie

The_Intern_Poster-512x512

“Starting a new job can be a difficult challenge, especially if you’re already retired. Looking to get back into the game, 70-year-old widower Ben Whittaker (Robert De Niro) seizes the opportunity to become a senior intern at an online fashion site. Ben soon becomes popular with his younger co-workers, including Jules Ostin (Anne Hathaway), the boss and founder of the company. Whittaker’s charm, wisdom and sense of humor help him develop a special bond and growing friendship with Jules” – IMDB 

To be honest, the reason why I got interested with the movie, it involves the world about fashion, and so I thought – It was more than that. I’ve watched Anne Hathaway from the “Devil’s wears Prada” and in this movie she never failed to give a great performance. The movie was Hilarious! (Especially the scene where they have to crash into somebody’s house – You better watch the movie and you’ll crack up with that scene)  and yet heartwarming. I give it a 4/5.

I’ve listed things what I learn from the movie (Nothing beats writing a blog post with pizza paired with a Stella Artois beer  – I agree with Jules)

1.The movie tag line – Experience Never gets old.

With the life lessons you’ve earned thru the years, it definitely comes in handy 🙂

2. Not the exact line from the movie, According “Ben Whittaker” played by Robert De Niro. The reason why men carry a hanky, its because to wipe off women’s tears when we cry – Awwe.

We need to bring back Chivalry, ladies. and this is a good tip for my guy friends (Alam niyo na).

Well my dad carries a hanky all the time,  all the while I thought, it was just for hygienic purposes and yet there is a reason behind it.

3. Age doesn’t matter.

Look at Jules played by Anne Hathaway, a year and half ago , she started the business at  home, it boomed into a company then now she has 220 employees that work for her. Then there comes a trouble for the company, where they’ve questioned Jules as the CEO and needed someone with way more experience. Despite that, she decided that she will continue with what she started and she will be running the company as the CEO.

Ben despite his age who should  just  be relaxing and enjoying life. Yet he retired, then he just had that feeling that he wanted to be needed. Keep his brain and body on the go. The effort for him to keep up with the technology and yet he reminds us of the ropes of the good old days. It is  refreshing since technology took over. Very admiring, and his character was well loved by everyone in this film- effortless.

Ben is a widower , yet he was able to meet someone in the character of Fiona. (My grandmother who is a widow, has a boyfriend and I don’t mind at all, actually talo niya pa ako eh) – I understand that people have needs and to go on life with someone. People deserve the love they need 🙂

The scene when Jules helped Ben on how Facebook goes, is so cute to watch 🙂

I for one, see myself as I get old when my future kids have a life na! , doing the same thing, maybe be a doctor or lawyer or get finally get into the Fashion Industry,  just to keep me busy. 

4. Major #GirlBoss goals

From the clothes to Anne’s sassy and cool attitude as a boss, how she runs her company and the value of her employees. I love the interior of her office 😀

5. #MommyGoals

Meet Jules’  little “clone”, Paige. You’ll love her. and her sweet stay at home hubby, Matt, who gave up his career to give way to Jules.

In a Filipino Traditional Society it has always been the Paternal or the father, who earns and works for the family. Nowadays, Stay at home dads’ is becoming a trend and women dominating the professional field. I don’t see anything bad with it. It depends on how it works for a family.

I’m not referring to Jules’ life as perfect yet she goes thru things.  Okay, Jules’ sweet husband, Matt, cheated on her with a mommy from Paige’ s school. Jules knew for 18 days when she got a sneak peek on her husband’s phone.

What I learn from my Mom as a wife, Its not an easy job because at the end of the day, You’re main reason is always your children. As a wife you have obligations, My mom would say “Kailangan magpa ganda para sa asawa, and mag provide ng needs sa husband mo kasi obligasyon mo iyon, kasi ang love pwede mawala”. My mom would add “If gusto i-save ang marriage gawa pa ng isa pang anak” HAHA. My mom.

Jules forgave Matt and they decided to work on it. Jules thought of hiring a CEO in place of her in order to save her family.

Now I questioned the concept of faith fullness and loyalty, today.

5. Nowadays, we we rely too much on technology.

Does anybody forgot the concept of Talking to someone personally? Thanks Ben- The scene where Adam DeVine, asked Ben for dating tips.

6. New doesn’t always mean BETTER.

Sometimes the classic – still the best. Yet technology today is accessible and easy, It is sometimes good to relive the past from dating traditions to life hacks, nothing beats the classic. How did people survive before? People just tend to forget because nowadays people get to step out from the norm which is also a good thing. I am grateful that I was born on the 1900s, I had a fun and weird childhood before technology took over.

Ben carries a briefcase to work, Its refreshing!  where do you see people carry classic leather briefcase nowadays. My dad still owns a lot (all still in good shape, because of the good quality brand)  and he handed one to me to keep STUFF hihi #LifeHacks

 

 

 

 

 

HairX: Hair Free, Care Free!

HAIR X: Making IPL hair removal accessible, affordable, and available to Filipinos

page4
Glend Gao, CEO and Ruby Chavez Branch Manager. Explaining how HairX started and future plans. Also how IPL works on the hair.

Let’s admit it, we girls get conscious everytime we see a bunch of hair growing, especially at our arms and legs. Well having hair is normal for crying out loud but that habit of shaving and plucking, leaves trauma to our precious skin. We all aim for that flawless and Hair-Less skin.

We are in luck that HairX, Auricle wellness SPA , introduces an affordable and comfortable innovation -IPL, stands for  Intense Pulsed Light – A  dual pulse tech that is virtually painless and safe.As explained,  the energy splits into 2 and hits the hair when its on its Anagen stage. That’s why we have to follow the interval of sessions for better results because we shouldn’t miss the Anagen phase ( Your hair grows around half an inch a month, the growth phase, or anagen phase, lasts an average of 3-5 years, so a full-length hair averages 18 to 30 inches –  http://www.philipkingsley.com/hair-guide/hair-science/hair-growth-cycle/) . Well first of all it doesn’t guarantee that 100% no hair but from a course texture, as you go further with the sessions the hair becomes “finer”, gets off easily and unnoticeable.

Well I haven’t started my sessions with HairX yet, (I’ll make a documentation and review on that with their different services, SOON ). But as of now we are promoting the place and the hype that it is affordable and comfy -painless!

They are still trying to branch out all around metro manila(They plan to have 25 branches in 5 years ) , If by chance you are by BGC Forbes Town Center try to visit and check out their services. You’ll love the peaceful aura and vibe of the place. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Tip: Book in advance for your sessions.

They have Aqua facials (machine infusion with vitamin C), Aqua light (under arms and inguinal area) and waxing services (light con precision wax – it is PAINLESS ).

For the price rates just scroll down 🙂

ALL ABOUT IPL

IPL (intense pulsed light) hair removal is not new in the cosmetic industry. But compared with other common procedures like plucking, shaving, waxing, and DIY depilatory creams, IPL hair removal have always been an expensive alternative. Not anymore. Hair X, the latest neighborhood hair removal clinic in the country, aims to make IPL hair removal (and laser-based skin and facial care) accessible, affordable, and available to more Filipinos.

Such a stunner and she uses IPL too, Ms. Glenda Gao, CEO

While other temporary hair removal procedures are cheaper, they still leave the skin with unnecessary trauma and negative side effects such as ingrown hair, darkening of underarms, inflammation, and, at worst, infection. IPL renders less damage to parts of the skin not included the treatment, which means faster healing. It uses intense pulsating beams of light to remove unwanted hair after regular sessions, effectively slows hair growth, and lessens the negative side effects caused by other short-term procedures.

HairX_Logo

Hair X makes available a range of affordable programs and payment options for value-seeking Filipino men and women who want to permanently remove hair easily, painlessly, and professionally. It is run by a highly trained medical team using the latest in first world equipment, techniques, and procedures, and is housed in an antiseptically clean and relaxed environment. One of Hair X’s brand new, cutting edge pulsed light technology is called Forma IPL System.

#HairX launch Event with affordable, safe and comfortable IPL Hair Removal treatments. They also offer wax treatments, facials and threading. Here at 2F Forbes Town Center 🌿 on the blog soon (📷: @mariaisquixotic)

Forma IPL System features a dual pulsing technology, making the hair removal procedure very comfortable.  It emits a unique flash, characterized by a very short pulse duration and high energy at the same time. These standards optimize the way energy hits the hair root and renders the treatment efficient, safe and painless.

Wisdom: Personally Inspire others

Sept 20, 2015

wisdomm

Today, since I have time on a snoozy Sunday and my official rest day from working out. So its the time of day, I update my blog with the shenanigans happening in my life. While waiting for real work, I probably make myself busy and useful. This is the thing about being currently unemployed – is that, ikaw lagi inaaya haha and never miss an opportunity!  – but weigh things that are important :))

Yes, but I am enjoying it. I am in no rush. I believe in God’s perfect timing. –pero may PRESSURE haha. 

I was a volunteer school nurse for 6 months (I promised to give back after passing the board exams, and I did! Thank God! -Nursing school wasn’t easy, seriously.), then ended my volunteer work when my sister arrived from Muscat, giving the priority that I should guide her. She is gonna start her freshie year at TUA as a pharma student.

 Well, I lived independently for 4 years, but I had my share of experiences – immature situations that I wished someone guided me that time. I was glad that I managed to put myself together and graduated without getting pregnant – my mother’s worries haha!. That’s why I decided to guide my sister for a while – I have some fears, yet I realize, my sister is different and I always pray she had the time of her life in college. Being a pre-med student wasn’t a roller coaster of all fun. Seriously I know, late nights reviewing, a lot of things of do but so little time feeling.

I’m a so called third culture brat, All my life was in OMAN- its a country beside Dubai okay? haha though raised very traditionally Filipino, life in Oman was different. ( I might be writing my personal wisdom on the perspective of OFW kids – Im still trying to put up a good write up about it)

Well going back, I have a thing of collecting wisdom from anybody – yeah ANYBODY, whether a stranger or my driving instructor HAHA.

What made me decide to put up a personal blog? maybe I got inspired from my friends and readers/followers.

This week I was able to receive a personal letter from a follower/reader. and I was so touch.

blog

I don’t get to hear what my readers/followers have to say about me – Some do message me and compliment but personally writing you a letter, is one thing. Very Touching (This is just a part of the letter)

People don’t know how much insecurities, I have. (The truth: I am not the pretty girl – with a nice body too, And it’s okay – I am more than that. I’ve had my series of mistakes, immature moments – NORMAL thing to go thru. I am not the most favored person – You can’t please everybody, there are times I don’t feel appreciated, kaya don’t invest too much emotions kasi haha! -Basta Just be KIND and be yourself ) That is a thing called LIFE. But it’s OKAY- looking forward to learn pa more haha. There are a lot of things going on my mind kasi HAHA

Thank youuu, You know who you are, made me think about how much I shouldn’t downgrade myself #Wisdom
Early this week too , I got an email from a group of Marketing Management students from Miriam college, one of them saw my post from Instagram and that’s how they found me. They invited me to be their thought leader. Seriously, ANO KAYA WISDOM mabibigay ko sa kanila? HAHA. 
They have a project on their Pinoy flavored truffles. They presented to me,  dark chocolate with peanut butter. Sayang, they had mikmik and chocnut flavors.

12033275_10207813341880389_1853973696_n
 Not bad for homemade it was neatly done and I love dark chocolate and peanut butter – taste almost like REESE. I gave them a 4/5. They asked me questions about the product and then asked me about blogging.
So I gave them tips.
1. How I started blogging and what made me decide to – I thank my college bestfriend, Charlene Ajose, Blogger. Who got me into this.
How I got “Krishgeek”- my bestfriend, Noof came up with the name during high school and I embraced it since then.
2. What are your social media sites?  I started with tumblr, then I bought a domain and put up my own site – A friend of mine suggested that I should have my own URL. Then Instagram was a good platform since i love to take pictures and make flatlays.
3. How to get invites to events – having connections and building a network. Then others would just email you.
Just keep on blogging.
4. How do you do Flatlays?
I’m not the best at it, there are others who take this game way seriously than I am HAHA!
Always have an eye for it and be prepared. – Kaya lagi ako may dalang powerbank for in case of rare moments and I always use my phone. my phone gets easily drained because I have net on my phone, 
Maybe because I used to do photography with my SLR  during my college days – so it might be an edge. But now I use my iPhone and its all about using the right app. My fave is AFTERLIGHT – you can download it on the appstore. I like to play with natural light and colors as well. Just experiment until you get the perf shot. Then comes the brainstorming for the perfect caption URGH! – I’ll be honest I am more of a public speaker than a writer. 
Those so far the things I could remember and I shared some of my personal wisdom.
I received an email from them yesterday,  that they got a 4.5 grade, So I was very happy for them!
So It has been a good experience, and I love be of great influence to others and my advocacy is just be yourself and like my mom’s says LOVE YOURSELF.

A good combination of sugar, milk and cocoa to create Nothing but great taste Cocio. Last September 3, 2015 at Whitespace Manila was the launch of the Iconic Danish chocolate milk drink. Cocio is now set to delight Asia for the very first time, starting in the Philippines, with the launch of Cocio classic and the global launch of Cocio Dark.

The Cocio Dark, which is my fave among the two, (since I love dark chocolate ever – its healthier!) was first introduced here, we are ahead of Denmark BTW! My take on the classic is ofcourse lighter compare to the bitter-sweet taste of Dark Cocio, but I love the flavor! The sweetness is just right, just how I love my chocolate milk drink.

Here are some photos during the launch, the media had a taste of both, the classic and dark cocio. During the event they explained the contents of the drink, The history and future plans for the brand. I sincerely feel that the brand will be embraced here in the Philippines, Well Filipinos love sweets especially chocolate!

The event was lively, there was band that played, good food was served, they served red wine that goes with the entree of cheese!  I love the ambiance of the venue and they have great spots to take photos if you are going for a minimalist white backdrop. Honestly I arrived late but I was able to enjoy and meet people from the media 🙂

Cute story,  I was carrying a bunch of Cocio drinks, in the elevator of my friends’ condo I just got home from the event,  a kind citizen helped me out with pressing what floor I am going to because I have my hands full. And she noticed the drinks and I told her you’ll be seeing them soon in the market, so watch out 🙂 – I think its already available?

PH Launch of Cocio Marks the Brand’s First Launch in Asia

After winning over the hearts of Europeans worldwide, Iconic Danish chocolate milk drink Cocio is now set to delight Asia for the very first time, starting in the Philippines, with the launch of Cocio classic and the global launch of Cocio Dark.

Models with Principals

Local Cocio distributor FlyAce, a company that endeavors to bring the best of the world closer to the Philippines, finds Cocio remarkable in that the brand embodies FlyAce’s commitment to great taste and responsible ethical production.

“I was impressed with Cocio’s meticulous processes when I visited their office in Copenhagen. Every step involved – from choosing ingredient suppliers to advertising the product – stayed true to their core values,” said Fly Ace President Jun Cochanco. “Cocio is undoubtedly the best chocolate drink in the market, and we think it’s about time we share it with the country.”

This marks the first time that Cocio classic will be sold in the Asia Pacific region, and the first time Cocio Dark, which features more cocoa in each bottle, is to be launched ever.

Unlike other brands, Cocio advertises nothing except its great taste. It does not believe in overly hyping or in doling out claim after claim of benefits a consumer can get. Cocio instead uses their trademark wit and dry humor to focus on letting consumers know they can only guarantee one thing: that each bottle contains Nothing but Great Taste.

Not only is Cocio known for their distinct approach to their beverage and their marketing, the brand is a staple in the lives of Danes. Commonly paired with hotdogs, Cocio’s versatility invites consumers to think up of even more Cocio pairings.

A Tradition of Great Taste, Preserved

 Developed in the home kitchen of Danish couple Anker and Ella Pallesen in 1951, Cocio is the result of much trial and error over the course of 2-3 years. In the pursuit of the greatest chocolate drink, they discovered that they didn’t need much. What was important was the quality of the ingredients and the science behind the process.

The recipe they created uses only 3 ingredients: milk, cocoa, and a little sugar, all of which are sourced from premiere suppliers around the globe. The milk is from Arla Foods, the world’s largest multi-national dairy cooperative owned by over 14,000 farmers; the plain sugar is from established sugar suppliers; and the cocoa are UTZ-certified from West Africa.

The fact that the brand uses beans that are UTZ-certified means that they are supporting the farmers. It means that Cocio supports sustainable farming and better living conditions for the impoverished.

Free from preservatives, Cocio has no artificial taste. Cocio is the only chocolate drink free from stabilizers in the market. Bottling the beverage and cooking them for a specific amount of time gives Cocio that rich and silky smooth feel. This is where the ingredients mix together to create a unique flavor. To this day, Cocio still uses the same recipe from 1951 and still upholds the same ideals.

A European Staple Coming to Asia

 Following the immense success of Cocio in their native Denmark, the brand was then introduced to their Scandinavian neighbors Sweden and Norway. In more recent years, Cocio has also branched out to other European countries, and to the USA. Cocio continues to make waves as the beverage of choice for anyone looking for a straightforward cocoa drink.

This year marks the time the brand finally reaches Asia, through the Philippine shores. “We know that Filipinos will love Cocio because not only is it delicious, it’s also made from natural ingredients, ingredients that are perfect for those trying to adapt a healthier more wholesome diet,” explains Jens Christian Krog, Senior General Manager of Arla Philippines.

“Cocio satisfies the sweet tooth without any additives or false promises. It’s the kind of beverage that Filipinos will surely love.” Krog ends.
