Finding Freedom and a Mom’s Breastfriend in Avon Fashions Body Illusion

Looking at myself in the mirror sometimes makes me say “Who are you, and what have you done to Via?”

As a new Mom, a lot of things changed – my daily itinerary, my eating and sleeping schedule, my spending habits, my clothes, shoes… my body.

1970-01-01 087971651590838956622..jpg

Looking back my mother would have not believed that I can actually get a normal BMI for once, and all it took was to get pregnant and become a mother like herself.

But I’m grateful in every way, and always looking at the brighter side of these changes, specially how blessed I am to have functional body parts that are actually able to nourish a growing little life.

1970-01-01 081171601651018733927..jpg

I told myself that this new role will demand and ask so much from me, and I have to be prepared to handle it. I read a lot of books, searched online, and asked mommy friends about how I can better adjust to this new phase in my life. I knew I have to rise over, and be more.

And so I shall.

That is why I always appreciate even the littlest of things that can make me manage this new role effectively and seamlessly.

Good thing I found Avon Fashions’ new Body Illusion.

1970-01-01 081276364530151744859..jpg

It has been the lightest and most comfortable underwear I’ve ever worn! These new bras and panties actually feel like second skin, and are perfect for my nursing clothes.

Most of my nursing dresses are made of soft cotton and light fabrics that is why I particularly need to wear undergarments that don’t put obvious dents on unflattering areas.

Plus I won’t have to worry about stubborn straps saying hello to strangers. It’s quite a dealbreaker when you need to adjust intimates in public places, especially when I am carrying my baby. The frustration and itch to fix is quite a pain – and my hands are full!

1970-01-01 086554699341425776759..jpg

I am so grateful that Avon finally launched this advanced innerwear line, as it answers my woes as a busy entrepreneur and a hands-on mom. The support of being able to do tasks without anything getting in the way is such a relief!

I’m wearing Sonia, the non-wire seamless pull-on bra (P899) and panty (P299) are my new best friends! They make me feel confident and extra sexy too! The extreme flexibility with its pull-on form factor, complete with ultra-soft fabric and moulded cups are a breather from the other unruly intimates I’ve tried before.

There are no hooks too! Wearing this actually reminds me of something like putting on a shirt! This feature ensures seamless back and sides, and provides comfortable support even without the wires!

It truly is the perfect foundation to any outfit that gives its wearer the perfect silhouette for limitless movements and confidence.

Check how interesting my mommy movements are prior to getting a picture-perfect shot!

My arms are like the bra I’m wearing, as Body Illusion offers different levels of control, so are my arms making sure Calum is safe and following his little fidgets.

From smoothing to shaping to sculpting, to flatter my figure, I’m quite happy and satisfied that despite our small scuffle, we finally had come to the conclusion to sit down and pose for the camera.

1970-01-01 084005204169393871257..jpg

And look, no photo-bomber bra straps!

Got Lumps? Get them checked out immediately

I remember a lesson back in my college years in Nursing when we were taught on how to properly palpate our patients to feel any form of lumps that may signal a medical concern.

I believe this skill has been a great help for me especially when I need to check some of my family members who expressed worry about something either movable or not in some parts of their body.

metacarpophalangeal-joint-inspection

 

When you feel a lump in any part of your body or an accumulation of mass under your skin, it always makes you stop, feel it again and think about why or how you got it. Many lumps are harmless.

These can be associated with physical activities such as exercise and commuting, or curable, minor health conditions. If they persist, however, these lumps can be a sign of something more serious.

Non-serious lumps are usually soft, mobile or can move or change shape when touched, located in the superficial layer of the skin, or can grow large and painful with activity but diminishing in size with rest. For these types of lumps, mostly resulting from rigorous physical activity, there is an immediate first- aid relief, though: get rest, apply ice and compression.

Other types of lumps can be brought about by other conditions which need further assessment.

Types of lumps in the body

 According to National Health Services UK, the following are areas where lumps can appear that are indicative of diseases and health complications:

 

  • Mumps – This is the swelling of the parotid glands on the side of the face, most commonly occurring among children. Patients may experience headaches, joint pain, and may have high fever for a few days.
  • Allergic reactions – A person allergic to peanuts, strawberries and seafood can develop lumps and swelling under the skin. This can be life-threatening if accompanied with difficulty in breathing.
  • Dental abscess – Bacterial infection may form on the inside of the teeth, in the gums or even in the bone structure surrounding the teeth and lead to lump and swelling on the side of the mouth. This can be accompanied by infection and fever.
  • Salivary gland stone – Chemical in the saliva can crystallize and form a stone, which causes a lump and swelling near the jaw area.
  • Swollen lymph glands – Swelling in the lymph glands often signals an infection. Once the infection is treated, the lump subsides. However, recurring lump or swelling of the lymph glands could be an indication of a more serious health condition like cancer of the lymphatic system or head and neck cancer. Such cases require a complete and thorough medical assessment.
  • Skin tags – These are wart-like, skin-colored growths that hang off the skin. It can also occur in the armpits, around the groin area, under the breasts and even on the eyelids.
  • Goiter – This is an abnormal enlargement of the thyroid gland which is usually caused by a lack of iodine in the diet.
  • Mastitis – This is most common among pregnant and breastfeeding women.Breast tissues become swollen and painful due to an infection.
  • Hernia – Swelling or lump occurs in the abdomen or groin area when an internal organ pushes through weak spot in a surrounding muscle that holds it in place.
  • Lumps in the testicle area – They could be due to swollen veins, build-up of fluid or some form of inflammation. However, some lumps can indicate testicular cancer.

Lumps

If you are experiencing one of these conditions, it is best to get lumps checked out for immediate relief or to get a complete diagnosis as your lump may indicate something more serious.

 

Lumps that can be a cause for worry

Lumps should be assessed by your doctor if they are not associated with any physical activity or if the lump and its accompanying conditions worsen. Instead of losing sleep over it, ask your doctor to perform a complete diagnosis of your lump.

Characteristics of lumps that can indicate more serious illnesses include pain and redness, swelling or growing bigger, lump is hard and doesn’t move, lump grows back after being removed, lump in the breast or testicles, and swelling in the side of the neck, armpit, or groin area that doesn’t go away.

Not all types of lumps indicate cancer. However, a lump is one of the telling signs of breast cancer, Hodgkin lymphoma and testicular cancer. These diseases can be easier to treat if patients are diagnosed and assessed early.

throat-cancer-lump

Hope From Within symbolizes the optimism that novel treatments like targeted therapies and immunotherapy bring to cancer patients, and promotes ongoing education on the importance of early diagnosis, having an open line of communication with doctors, and completing treatment. Initially, it encourages “Test-Talk-Take Action” against lung cancer but already expanded to include melanoma, head and neck cancer, Hodgkin lymphoma, gastric, and bladder cancers.

Learn more about cancer and how we fight it. Get early screening and know your treatment options.

This might save a life.

Swimpeccable Eats at 8 Seas Food Park Adventure

My appreciation for mermaids and seas is nothing new to you my dear merfriends, that is why imagine the delight on my face when I saw the design of 8 Seas Food Park Adventure!

IMG_20190208_191942.jpg

It was like a pier, with big floaters and a ship! I truly felt like a mermaid who turned into a human. 🙂

IMG_3727

I have already posted an introduction in my Facebook page how I felt about going to events now that I have a 5-month old baby. I was really excited to try different dishes from this new food park given that it is so near our place.

This one is a great choice for families and friends when dining out as their food concepts are generally preferred by Pinoys. Showcasing family tradition and culinary passion, Chickapig is driven to satiate and invoke customer loyalty by offering tasty food and appetizing atmosphere.

chickapig_fb_sisig

I enjoyed their sisig and chicken wings. I am a big fan of the latter that is why I am quite picky and tend to veer on more familiar tastes such as garlic parmesan and honey lemon.

They have adequate servings so there’ll be no hunger pause buttons. I believe pairing their food either with rice or standalone can still be mouth-watering, and definitely worth trying.

As a breastfeeding mom, I’m quite thirsty all the time, so aside from water, it is a great treat to drink flavoured liquids from time to time.

Kocco Tea Kitchen offers tea, milktea, iced tea, lemonade, coffee, and frappe for all drink junkies out there. I am more of a milktea person rather than liking coffee. I actually grew up thinking coffee is only for adults. 😀 Haha That is why this is a haven for me.

IMG_20190208_193815.jpg

IMG_20190208_193435.jpg

I ordered Strawberry Daiquiri Lemonade and it was thirst-quenching as well as refreshing. I didn’t even know I was about to finish it right before I start the next meal.

I also find this little nook quite cozy. It’s intimate and very discreet. I think most youngsters would enjoy trying out their swills.

SAMGYEOP SA TIMOG

I am not a fan of Korean Buffets because I find the smoke quite annoying, to which I am very allergic. That was why I was a bit hasty on trying this restaurant.

IMG_20190208_194902.jpg

But as I was trying on the appetizers and the unlimited meat, I finally found why Pinoys are so addicted to this type of dining. It’s a great fuel after a hard day’s work and it’s a great way to unwind with friends.

48383357_351728932290965_4182340192503332864_n

The unlimited deal is such a steal too, because for only 299PHP you get to have unlimited pork, while at 399PH you get unlimited chicken, beef and pork meat!

Both prices include the side dishes such as kimchi, fish cake, cucumber, atchara, raddish and carrots, peanuts, vegetable curry, lettuce, japchae, and kimchi soup. You also get to have three sauces: ssamjang, yangnyum and sesame oil with salt and pepper.

They also provide melted cheese that goes well with everything! 😀

IMG_20190208_195942.jpg

I actually had a lot of inquiries from my Facebook MyDays and Instagram Stories upon posting!

IMG_3748

IMG_3752

IMG_3756

With the sprouting unlimited samgyeopsal around Timog Avenue and Tomas Morato, Quezon City, SamgyeopSaTimog has the lowest price! It’s a great excuse to finally give in and enjoy good times with your good friends! Plus, ending it with a coffee jelly puts everything satisfyingly delicious.

There are many other interesting food junctions in the park, to which I want to try on my next visit. What better day to go than Valentine’s Day?

Tasting Soogba’s Authentic Bacolod Chicken Inasal and More

Spending 6 years of my childhood in Butuan City (Mindanao), has let me experience a lot of things, otherwise not typically familiar to a growing kid in more urbanized cities or the country’s capital regions.

IMG_20190208_191942.jpg

I go to the beach every Sunday just because, and we know almost everyone, everywhere (since the town is pretty small).

One of my favourite ways of cooking is called “Sugba”, or most commonly known as “Ihaw” in Tagalog.

Sugba means “broil” or “grill”, and it could also be “a restaurant where food is cooked in a grill, hence I think where this new food junction I recently tried got its inspiration.

IMG_3681

Soogba is a restaurant that offers the most authentic Bacolod Chicken Inasal in the metro. Along with this, they also offer other grilled dishes such as chicken barbecue, spicy chicken neck, gizzard, atay (liver), and isol (chicken ass).

Carlo Tanalgo, Soogba’s Chef wanted to let Metro Manila taste the real Bacolod Chicken Inasal,

“Inasal” is a modified Filipino lechon Manok, and “asal” means in a stick. It is seasoned generously with calamansi (a Filipino resonant of lemon), coconut vinegar, pepper, orange, lime and annatto. The chicken meat is subjected to immense heat over hot coals while being clobbered by the prepared marinade.

IMG_3689

A common dish in the Visayas region, and the famous go-to food of travellers and even locals of Bacolod, is finally here in Quezon City, and only costs for as low as 150php!

I was able to try Inasal, Isol, and their best-seller and own recipe of Original Spare Ribs and I felt engulfed with the mixture of delectable flavours! They even make their own sauces and chicken oil.

IMG_3694

IMG_3697

IMG_3692

IMG_3701

I didn’t expect I’ll appreciate their version on these foods.

It was nothing like anything I tasted before. The meat is cooked evenly and their juice just bathes everything nicely.

I knew right then and there I had to take John with me here next time! He is the REAL Inasal fan!

Chef Carlo also says “Soogba is about the food experience and customer satisfaction.” True enough, dining here didn’t disappoint.

You can visit Soogba at 8 Seas Food Park Adventure at 122 Timog Avenue, Quezon City.

No Guessing in the “Year of the Pig” through Château Royale’s Free “Bazi Reading”

January 2019 started a good year for me, I had my church wedding and had an epiphany that I should push through with this new idea I have in mind. Good and workable it may seem, I still would want to consult the experts given the chance.

I once had a tarot reading, and the Master said it would be easy for me to conceive, something I would otherwise not believe considering the history of my health. But guess what, I got pregnant 6 months later!

So I’m quite excited for the Year of the Pig and what it has in store for me and my little family. Consequently, a resort in Batangas is going to host something similar – Bazi Reading.

yearofpig

In celebration of the coming Chinese New Year, Château Royale Hotel Resort and Spa guests on February 9 will have a once-in-a-lifetime experience they will never forget.

As a special treat to its “Year of the Pig” checked-in guests, Château Royale Hotel Resort and Spa will have a Bazi reading expert who will be ready to accept Bazi reading and consultation.

“Bazi Reading” or “birth profiling” is a statistical tool used to analyze a person’s birth date and time in order to read and understand that person’s assets and liabilities. Among these include health, marriage, career path and other life’s important activities and foresee high-probability events. This reading will help provide individuals a good understanding of who they really are, their potentials for success.

All readings are done scientifically with no amount of superstition whatsoever. The readings’ results are provided in order to help enable people make wiser decisions or do realistic adjustments in their lives that will help shape or affect their future.

fbpagechinesenypromoTo avail of the Bazi consultation, checked-in guests should only register with the Concierge and will be asked to prepare at least 3 specific questions that the Bazi master will answer. For a deeper reading, guests will be asked of their birth date and hour of birth. If no hour of birth is provided, only limited advise on business, children and lovelife will be provided.

The Bazi Reading at Château Royale Hotel Resort and Spa for the Chinese New Year will be offered for only P5,688 to checked-in guests instead of the usual P8,888. This comes with a Bazi chart to be given onsite and sent as well to guests’ email.

In the email, a personality reading will also be included so that clients are guided and they can have a better understanding of themselves. For those with families, it is suggested that they provide the Bazi expert the hour of birth of the spouses and their children so that their questions may be answered better.

“Every Chinese New Year, it is common that you find people seek guidance from the stars, and now with Bazi reading, they can get guidance about life’s future happenings through numbers and done in the most scientific way possible. At Château Royale Hotel Resort and Spa, everyone is family, and what better way to make family bonding better during Chinese New Year than to provide them with a family experience they will truly cherish, just like every time they stay here,” explains Marie Abolencia, Château Royale Hotel Resort and Spa’s Director of Sales and Marketing.

The Secret to Staying Classy (Even If You Run the Household)

A constant cliche it may be but “A girl should only be two things, classy and fabulous.” line by Coco Chanel will never ever go out of style.

I often find myself reverting to the classics whenever I have to dress up for a special occasion. For the main reason that you could never go wrong with this, and subtle elegance will always be a winner no matter when and where.

In fact this is also the case in one of my favorite movies – The Stepford Wives.

stepford wives

All of these women look exceptionally classy and fabulous, even while running the household. This also becomes an unforeseen reminder to me now that I am a wife, to always look good and take care  of myself.

vintage dress

A royalty also comes to mind with this. Princess Kate Middleton is also such an iconic fashion inspiration when it comes to the classics and vintage ensembles.

Smell Scentsational with Perfume Dessert

Whenever I receive perfume as gifts, they usually end up not being used because I am pretty sensitive to strong scents. I remember nursing a cold after spraying what’s somewhat ‘too fragrant’ for my picky nose.

That was why; I am pretty impressed with this aesthetically appealing line of perfumes called Perfume Dessert.

IMG_20181213_160856-01.jpeg

Perfume Dessert is a fusion of fun and sophistication wrapped in these beautiful cylinder paper bottles. Their eau de parfum (also referred to as EDP) fragrances from London offers a variety of delectable dessert-inspired scents that are oil concentrated at 20-30%. This offers a bountiful of ‘waft’; that means a good deal of staying power that could last from four to eight hours.

The science behind its gorgeous 30 ml crimped bottle is that it will help retain the freshness and potent fragrance of the perfume. Keeping the chance to diffuse or leak at bay.

Since air, humidity and erratic temperature can affect the perfume’s quality, the cap should always be on. Such bottle designs that cannot be opened and only be sprayed are the best for preserving and keeping the fragrance intact and always compelling.

IMG_20181212_140817-01.jpeg

I also admire how Perfume Dessert’s elegant packaging is great not only for personal use but also for giveaways or gift for loved ones especially that it’s the Christmas season. It’s really an effortless, no need for extra wrapping kind of packaging.

It’s even a great set of gifts for bridesmaids!

I particularly love the Cucumber Melon Cooler because it smells so clean and refreshing. The Orange Mimosa Sherbet is also perfect for your beaus!

Another fun fact, Perfume Dessert can also be a natural aphrodisiac, because of its gourmand notes, and it contains pheromones, which really have aphrodisiac properties. It explains why you get attracted to someone because of these kinds of scents. And everyone wants to be attractive, right?

 

These elegant perfumes come from the United Kingdom, and you can get them from as low as of Php 250.00 per bottle.

Celebrate 2019 New Year Countdown at Timberland

2018 has been a very rich and productive year for me.

I can say I made a lot of memories worth smiling about, and it makes me think how everything unfolded in God’s perfect time. I became a mother and I built a new business! I believe these things are worth celebrating. 🙂

I know that you, my merfriends have also a lot of things to celebrate and to be thankful for the year that was. You have probably laid out a thrilling itinerary for the Christmas holidays already!

But do you have something planned for New Year’s Eve?

So just in case if you’re the type who’s too busy to scour for places, deals, or treats, but is very much eager to book, allow me to unload you that cargo and invite you to a 2019 new year countdown dinner!
