Vitamins for Kids – Nutri10 Plus

I know many moms struggle to have their kids eat fruits and vegetables and let alone open their mouth for vitamins. I am probably one of the very few parents with a child who loves taking vitamins whether chewable or syrup (and yes, my child also loves greens and an absolute fan of fruits).

When I first had my daughter try Nutri10 Plus from Wert, I knew I wouldn’t have any problem. And true enough, “Sarap, Mommy!” was her instant reaction. In fact, she loves it so much that she takes the initiative to remind me she hasn’t taken vitamins for the day. I know it’s more than her memory. It’s her love for it.
Since my little one is on the active side, this vitamins helped boost her energy even more. Living up to its promise, “Para sa batang aktibo’t malakas,” my daughter is absolutely stronger and more energetic. I have another mom friend who said that her son has increased appetite after having the Nutri10 Plus vitamins for a while. Nutri10 Plus also has the highest Lysine Content that contributes to the growth and development of children including Taurine, Vitamins and Zinc.

Nutri 10 Plus Syrup helps to:

 

  • provide essential vitamins and minerals during the critical stage of growth and development
  • improve proper coordination of mental, motor and visual skills
  • maintain good vision, strong bones and teeth, and healthy skin
  • boost immune system
  • enhance brain development
And did I mention? Wert also has other vitamins for adults that my husband and I take as well.
If you are looking for vitamins you can try out with your kids, I would recommend you choose Nutri10 Plus.
Have you tried Nutri10 plus?

Personal Branding by Lexter Ang

If you are a professional or running your own business, you know that branding is something you should not neglect.

More that the font combination and color palette, branding is more about your entire image or how your customers view you.

Branding is very important. It is that important that branding directly affect sales. If you don’t present yourself or your company well enough, your marketing efforts will be directionless.

These are just some of the things I learned from the Personal Branding Workshop I attended with Manila Workshops.
The Speaker, Lexter Ang, gave us a whole lot of insights on how we can better present ourselves to attract the right customers.
My favorite part was when we took The Fulfilled Women as an example in one of the activities. He walked us through the process of creating a mission statement in less than 10 minutes! 10 minutes ladies and gentlemen! It wasn’t too hard after all. That exercise helped me to uncover what my brand is really all about and gave me confidence in what I do.
Give yourself the chance to discover and create a brand that stands out with the Business Branding Workshop happening this July 28.
COURSE EXPECTATIONS:
– Develop executive presence
– Creating consistency with every execution
– Reinforces corporate image and culture
– Improve sales success
– Maximize the impact of nonverbal communication

Our Experience at the Gardenia Plant Tour

We had a full day at the Gardenia Headquarters! We weren’t supposed to go because the  schedules available were all a conflict to us. Fortunately, I was exchanging messages with my BFF (also a blogger) at 6 in the morning and realized we could fit in that day! Sooooo glad we were able to go because my daughter absolutely enjoyed our time there.
Well, you know that she did enjoy her time when the following day, she greets you with “Gardenia Morning!” My husband and I had a good laugh. She’s been asking if we could go back to the Gardenia Plant again. And all we could say was, “I wanna go back too!!!” I feel like it wasn’t just for kids but for moms too. Seeing your child enjoys the activities make you enjoy as well!
We got to the venue a bit early so we had some time to take photos to ourselves haha. We were greeted by the Gardenia staff and ushered us inside together with the other participants. Thank you Mommy Bloggers PH!!
I could tell you our activities one by one but that would ruin the surprise. All I could tell was that they had MANY activities and all were absolutely enjoyable. I took my husband and my son with me and they too had such a great time.
I’ve been thinking long and hard what my favorite part was but all the activities were really fun, so I really can’t isolate one! For my daughter though, it would be the baking part! Kneading the dough was super fun. I could definitely see the excitement in her eyes!
If you want to take part in the Gardenia Plant Tour, just go to their website. This would be best for kids 5 to 10yo. My daughter is only 3 (turning 4 soon) but she enjoyed most of the activities still.
Has any of you gone to the plant? 
How was your experience? 

Enhance Your Beauty with Box Braids

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

I have maintained a long hair for years and years. I wanted the feeling of having a long and versatile hair. You can braid them, tie them up or let them flow. However, when I had a baby, just a few short weeks after I gave birth, I quickly realized that having a long hair plus living in a tropical country aren’t going to be a good combo. With a heavy heart, I cut my hair short. I horribly disliked all the photos of me with a short hair. It just wasn’t my style. But what to do? If only I could work magic and make my hair long in an instant.

Apparently, there’s magic. You call them box braids.

These box braids from Divatress make you shift from one look to another in minutes. You can shift from your naturally black hair to colored hair. You can shift from having long straight hair to braided hair without getting yourself sit down for hours in a braid shop. You don’t have to style yourself hours before your event. Now that’s magic, huh?

One of the benefits of these box braids is that they are low maintenance. They are easy to care for. Not just that, if they are well taken cared of, these box braids can last you months.

Imagine yourself, just slipping them on and creating a new hairstyle in such a short time? It must be heavenly!

Tell me, do you also feel tired of styling your hair day in and day out? My hands are raised all the way through the roof.
Would you like to make life easier for you and use these box braids instead? If you say yes to that, then this box braids will answer your prayers!

Try them on and see how these box braids can fit your fast paced lifestyle.

3 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Buying a Car

Sponsored post.

Next to buying a house, buying a car is one of the biggest purchase in every household. Buying a car is no joke. A chunk of our paycheck will be taken out for the monthly payment of that car.

That is why before we take our wallets out and place a bank loan, we should know what is the best car that would fit our family and our lifestyle. Here are some points to consider and questions you need to ask yourself before you commit to buying your dream car.

1. What are you going to use it for?
We buy cars for different reasons. Some buy for family use. Some buy for business. If you have a small family, then a small compact car would suffice. If you are using for a daily drive to the office, buying a big van would not be advisable.

2. Have you checked more than one dealer?
When we were going to buy our first car, my husband checked different dealers before negotiating. We ended up buying our car a few cities away but went home with the best deal. We were definitely pretty happy with our purchase.

3. How much are you willing to pay?
Obviously, you can’t buy something you can’t afford. Only buy a car that you know you can sustain. Remember that aside from the down payment and monthly loan, you will also pay for insurance, maintenance, gas, daily parking, etc. Don’t make a mistake of only looking at your monthly bank responsibility. Our friend likened having a car to having a new baby. Once you bring your new car home, another set of expense starts.

There is massive choices in the market. That is why you have to research first and be very picky. First find the best car that would suit your family then find the best deal on the market.

Any other tips in buying a car?

McDonald’s Happy Studio App

Yup! McDonald’s has a new App, Mommies! It isn’t just an engaging app, it is also educational. After learning McDonald’s is going to have a new App, I quickly downloaded it on my phone.

Happy Studio is an interactive learning and play app that makes the Happy Meal experience even more enjoyable. The best part? You can even scan a Happy Meal toy to unlock more fun and games within the app!

Educational Game Play
McDonald’s App grows children’s imaginations and encourages innovative thinking. In the Happy Studio app, kids can choose to step into the shoes of an inventor, an artist, or a musician. Each activity is focused on developing certain skills while putting the child into playful mini-scenarios.

As an inventor, kids can build various objects with their favorite characters while learning creative and logic skills as they go. As an artist, children are able to improve their creative skills and exercise their imagination. As a musician, kids are able to explore musical patterns to help improve their rhythm and timing.

My 3 year old loves to doodle, so she enjoyed being an “artist” through this App. She is yet to try being an inventor and musician but I am sure she’d love this too!

Now we don’t have to let her watch videos on the internet. Instead, we can use the McDonald’s App and learn thru play!

Happy Studio is now available for download from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Share your love for the app via the official Facebook fan page, www.facebook.com/mcdo.ph, or by tagging @McDo_PH to your sweet and funny Happy Studio moments on Twitter or Instagram.

FREEdom in FREElancing…

I immensely enjoyed my almost 10 years of being an English and Creative Writing teacher, but there was something in me that tells me there is something more. So in 2012 up until today, I had been a happy go lucky Freelancer. I wore many hats from being an encoder, a wedding host, a home-based teacher and did several start up businesses. Looking back, there is no other way I wanted it to happen. I definitely wasn’t born for the 8-5.

Did you know that according to Upwork, a leading global online jobs platform, the Philippines is the third highest – earning country in the world when it comes to freelancing? In fact, more than 1.4 million Filipinos are registered in the platform alone!

If you are just like me or thinking of entering that 1.4M statistics, then what I’m gonna tell you is something you’d want to know. This is what Freelancing is…

  • F – lexibility and Autonomy

We live in the Digital Age, so it should come as no surprise the technologies that can allow us to work anytime and anywhere, and provide services to clients from anywhere in the globe! Say goodbye to long commutes and hello to telecommuting! Also, the nature of Freelancing can give you the flexibility and autonomy to work at your own pace and choose the clients and projects you want to work on.

  • R – ewarding Career

Who says that Freelancing can’t be a career or profession? For many who have gone this route, it has paved way for them to pursue their dream jobs without the constraints of a fixed job description or the frustration of being stuck in a mundane ‘9-5’ office job. As a self-employed professional, you are fully empowered to pursue projects that would nurture your skills and passions.

  • E – ndless possibilities

As a freelancer, there is no limit to the opportunities and possibilities you can pursue, now that you have full control of your career, profession and time. Whereas before, the most part of your day and energy would be spent in long energy-draining meetings and long commutes, Freelancing lets you color and fill each day with activities that you consider truly aligned in attaining your life goals.

  • E – nables you to design your own lifestyle

Are you a night owl who is most productive in the evenings? Dreamed of having your own 4-Hour Work Week? Or what about getting down to finally working on that business plan for your dream start-up? With Freelancing, you can get creative on how you design your typical week, that would specially cater to your unique personality, interests and quirks.

  • D – o things your way

Always had a need to be in full control of your work, surroundings and growth? Then Freelancing will definitely give you that! Being your own boss is one of the great perks of being a Freelancer, and that means getting things AND results done just the way you envisioned it.

  • O – wn your time

Ever wondered how it would be like to respond to emails in your swimwear, with your toes brushing the sand as it points towards a breathtaking view of the beach? Well, in the Freelancing Handbook, you are free to take a vacation in the middle of the week, just as long as you get the job done and your clients happy. Becoming a Freelancer means taking full control of your time and schedule.

  • M – ake room for the people and things that truly matter

And here’s the most important part. Freelancing enables you to spend more time with your family, and other things that truly make life meaningful. With Freelancing, it has paved way for the rise of thousands of hands-on mommies, who find fulfillment in being able to nurture both their families and careers. Whilst for many others, they found it in more time spent in pursuing volunteer work, or in endeavors which define their passions and values.

Well, if you’re itching to learn more about the boundless opportunities of being a Freelancer, then you’re in luck. This year, Manila Workshops, with the support of the Department of Information Communications and Technology (DICT), will be holding the 2nd Freelancer Fair on Sept. 2, 2017, to be held at the Bayanihan Center, Pioneer, Pasig City.  It is the country’s first and largest event for Freelancers, which would gather together freelancers, business owners and brands for a whole day of talks tackling the Freelancing Landscape and the different opportunities in store for both existing and aspiring freelancers.  The theme for this year’s full day event is Cultivating Relationships, as inspired by the mission to cultivate, nurture and help more people discover how Freelancing can help them achieve their professional and personal goals.
