The end of the school year is fast approaching, and we welcome new classes this coming June 2019 as they advance to another level. But learning and honing our child’s talents should not stop at the end of the school year. On March to May, our children will be taking vacations, some will travel to other places and some will be spending their summer in their provinces. But for me, it is very crucial as a mom, to encourage my sons to never stop learning even though the school year has finally ended. Good thing there’s i-Shine Talent Camp 7 organized by Promil. 


Notable talents which are members of the camp who are also visible in different youth programs on television and competitions in and out of the country are Worth Lodriga, Esang de Torres, and Shaira Luna. Worth Lodriga is a national artist in the making. He has competed in various local and international competitions and has been tagged as the Little Picasso who started making art at age 6. Esang de Torres, who became famous as the MiniMe of Lea Salonga was also part of the camp before. She was included in the cast as little Cosette from the critically acclaimed theatre production of Les Miserables when it starred in Manila. She was also a part of the musical play, Matilda, where she was casted on her first lead role. Lastly, Shaira Luna whose career is in sky rocket as she pursue photography. She was one of the first promil kid and was tagged as “gifted child” among others for her exceptional works in the field of photography.

With all the achievements these kids reached at a very young age through their trainings and growth at Promil camp, I am sure it’s a very good decision to enroll our children in this kind of platform. So this summer, I decided to enroll Elijah, my youngest son, in the dance class headed by no other than the G-force founder, teacher Georcelle. I believe she will help hone his skills and talents, of course with my guidance.

So mommies and daddies, be sure to never miss this opportunity for your child to grow and develop their talents. Don’t hesitate to enroll them in different classes which are offered by the camp. They can join the art class, dance class, music class, theatre class, and ballet class which are all headed by prestige and known people from their respective fields. It will be running from April to May 2019 all over the country as it expands its reach to children with potentials at Batangas, Cebu, and even Davao. 

Don’t miss the chance and enroll your children at Promil i-Shine Talent Camp 7! See you all there!

New Year, New Me. 

“2018, you’ve been good to me. 2019, here I come.”

”Thank you 2018, next.” 

Always the same mantra, but never the exact changes we expect because we always thought it’s easy adapting and changing our lifestyle routines just so we could feel better. But how many days do our changes really last? How many days do we live up to going to the gym on the first month of 2019? Or sticking with our skincare routine to have that pore-less wonderful skin? Well it doesn’t really matter now because this 2019, Watsons offer a whole lot of changes in store for us as we figure out what needs progress and constant improvement to make us holistically stunning. 

Look good and feel good as they provide easy-to-follow tips and wide range of products that will be our partner in achieving the desired resolutions we always dreamed about. 

Here are 4 must share tips I have for you: 

1.) For a more radiant and fresher skin that will make you an envy of many, first try determining what skin type you have so you’d know the best products for your skin. Build a skincare regimen that suits you best and consistently follow that routine 1-3 months, since that’s the time recommended for your skin to fully adjust on the products you apply. Also make sure to avoid the eye area to avoid inflammation and the mouth area to avoid sudden dryness of the lips. 

2.) Nourish yourself for a glowing new you which radiates from within by making sure you’re amply nurtured with glutathione, collagen, and vitamin e. They are the best supplements that won’t break your skin and will keep you fresh and gorgeous all day. It also helps to know what supplements best fit your skin for a more radiating result. Be pimples free and wrinkles free by keeping your skin nurtured with products from Watsons. 

 3.) Take time and make time to attain a healthier new you by simply identifying the best vitamins and supplements you can take. It does not only help in keeping your skin glowing and pimple free, but it also boosts the immune system making you less prone to viruses and other transmutable diseases. Don’t forget to consult your doctor if you’re under extreme medication or is pregnant, since Watsons care for your health as much as they do in keeping your skin supple and smooth.

 4.) You may either rock in a black dress or be classy in white by choosing different products that best suit your different personalities, events, and style. Glam up your look by coloring your hair in different shades or apply subtle tones of eyeshadow for a more gorgeous and stylish new you. Never go out of style by mix matching hair products and cosmetic product; because in Watsons, you’ll never go out of style. It’s definitely the season to give yourself some loving and pampering you truly deserve. 


Start your new Year goals with Watsons and you’ll never go wrong. It’s about time we actually continue to grow love for ourselves as we stick with Watsons. And yes, it’s not only self-love this year, since Watsons love their regular shoppers.

 They’re giving away 10 iPhone XR for customers who use SM Advantage Card, SM Prestige, PRiMO, BDO Rewards Card, or the NEW WATSONS CARD, for a minimum purchase of PHP500. Promo ends on February 20, 2019 as Watsons Card winners will also receive 10,000 shopping points. 

 Always remember, for a #HappyNewYou, Watsons got your back!


It's definitely the season to give yourself the much-deserved love and start your New Year goals with Watsons. Tune in to Watsons Facebook live at the end of January and celebrate the best version of yourself.

As parents, we want nothing but the best for our kids. And as we see them grow and develop, we might think what can we impart to them that can nurture them further and help them grow as better individuals. The only goal we have as their guardians is to see them succeed and enjoy what they’re doing. Through that, we can be fulfilled and we can say we have been a great parent to them. Part of this is having to develop their knowledge and honing their skills and talents.

The crucial window for development peaks at the time our children starts to learn; to cope with things around them. This happens very early and it ends at the time they already have their senses to judge things based on what we taught them. So until they haven’t reached that age, it is our duty as parents to help our children stimulate their brains and improve their well-being. To develop their skills and talents, we have to give them a little push for them to build confidence and we need to give them the best guidance they could have.



Develop your child’s talents and passion through i-Shine Talent Camp 7 of Promil. Kids ages 6-11 can enjoy different fields of talents including singing, dancing, acting, and art making. They will be joined by various prominent people who excels in those fields who will make sure our kids will learn and get to enjoy what they do. 

Teachers Robert Alejandro and Kara Escay from Papemelroti will coach the Art Camp, 

Maestro Ryan Cayabyab returns as the camp master for the Music Camp, 

while Teacher Georcelle Dapat-Sy of the G-Force Dance School leads the Dance Camp. 

Audie Gemora heads the Theatre Camp, whereas Lisa Macuja-Elizalde guides the Ballet Camp.

I put my whole trust in this camp as I plan to enroll my youngest son, Elijah on the dance class headed by teacher Georcelle and my other son, Ethan who loves to make art. I know the camp will help my children enjoy and the teachers will guide them to excel and develop in their respective choices. Of course with utmost support and confidence boost from me and my husband as their guide outside the camp. We also get to play a vital role in their development as we push them to achieve their dreams and support them in everything they do. We will be proud as their parents if we see them nurture their gifts and talents as well as succeed in different aspects through the help of this camp.

Promil Four i-Shine 7 Camps will run from April to May 2019, and will be open for kids all over different cities around the Philippines like Manila, Batangas, Cebu, and Davao. This is to allow kids outside Metro Manila to experience the joy and learnings, i-Shine has to offer.

Discover and nurture your child’s potential at Promil Four iShine Talent Camp! To know more about registration and how to reserve a camp slot for your child! Visit www.promilnurturethegift.com.ph/ for more details.

Hi sexy mommas! I’m back with more fitness tips and of course, life hacks. We all know that I’m both a fan of different exercises and delicious food, and I know what you’re thinking right now! “These two things don’t go along pretty well.” If you had too much of those delicious food, you’d gain weight and gaining weight means more fats that need exercising and less temptations in life. But I beg to disagree! Why avoid the good things in life when you can still enjoy them in controlled quantities or maybe in monitored frequencies.

I, for one, am a fitness fanatic. I SUPER love running, going to the gym, and making sure that I want to have that healthy and sexy figure all the time but it’s hard to maintain such figure if you’re a chocoholic like me. I love chocolates more than any sweets out there. I’d cry for a piece of chocolate cake right now! Haha! But kidding aside, with my love for chocolates, my diet and bikini-body goal are on the brink of destruction. That’s why I looked for other ways to satisfy my chocolate-cravings and enjoy other indulgences without depriving myself of life’s simple gustatory joys.


While searching for fitness hacks, I came upon healthier alternatives. Not because you’re on a fitness journey, it doesn’t mean that you’ll have zero indulgence. You can still satisfy your craving with proper discipline and controlled eating. Some of the indulgences that you can still enjoy even when you’re on a “Balik-Alindog” journey are wine, bread, and cheese. 

As for my never-ending chocolate cravings, I’ve found the perfect snack for the job. I’ve chosen the 100-calorie FudgeeBarr as an alternative for a slice of chocolate cake and the 100-Calorie Choco Mucho, instead of other chocolate bars. The 100-Calorie packs are delicious snack food products that contain only 100 calories. Satisfyingly good and easy to burn. 100 calories is equivalent to just four percent of a regular adult’s calorie requirement for a day. Imagine if you take in another 100-calorie snack as an excess for your diet, you can simply go run for 10 minutes, cycle for 15 minutes or a short 36 minutes of cleaning and poof! Bye bye 100 calories! 


​I’m on my way to attaining my dream bod for summer without avoiding cravings and mouth-watering temptations. And let me leave this small reminder right here…


“Achieving your fitness goals requires sacrifice and compromise but it’s not worth it if it leaves you unhappy.”

As a mom who's hands-on at everything, I sometimes feel like I don't have enough energy to accomplish anything, especially after one of my marathons or after preparing for one. In times like that, I feel like I am not giving my best when it comes to my family, and myself. But when I learned of Organique Acai Capsules, everything changed.

Grown and harvested in South America, Acai berry is one of the hidden secrets of the Amazon Rainforest. It has been exported throughout the world because of its health benefits.

My lifestyle was given a booster, all thanks to Organique Acai Capsules. This food supplement allowed me to reach my maximum potential. It gave me energy for running and for everyday mommy duties. Also, due to its richness in antioxidants, I achieved healthy looking skin, and avoided haggard and stressed face. I've read in one article that the Acai Berry is ten times richer in antioxidants than grapes while two times than blueberries. It's overflowing with health benefits and super safe to use.

Filipinos are all about family. The mandatory family reunion happens not just once or twice a year, but every chance possible. From Birthdays to graduations all the way to the grand Christmas reunion, family gatherings are always filled with food, catching up, and loads of wholesome family fun. 

Lately, we’ve seen many changes in traditional family dynamics — from a simple meal to dance numbers by the grandkids. Families are reaching out to friends and relatives abroad through technology. While technology can be used to connect people, it can also become a wall between family members. 


How many times have you walked into a room and you are ignored by everyone hooked on their gadgets? This is the reality that has become the new norm. The simple act of truly connecting has become a valuable commodity that needs to be safeguarded by everyone in the family.

This Holiday season, a brand has decided to take action to advocate for real connections. It’s not asking you to completely give up your created social media life but to at least save the dining table from it — to keep shared family moments Real again. 



El Real is a pasta brand that plans to espouse this habit of safeguarding the dining moment from gadget distraction. As a beloved family brand, El Real will position itself as the champion for Real Family moments. The brand focuses on a typical family where we see the journey from the time the kids are growing to present time in order to dramatize the big shift in the way things are. The absence of technology encourages real bonding between siblings and their mother while in the present, gadgets have isolated each one from the intended bonding that should happen during the family reunion.

This advocacy is a good positioning for the brand El Real as it puts purpose to a very familiar product: pasta and sauce. Spaghetti and Macaroni being a staple in most Filipino gathering, can remind us that there is so much for us to share with everyone and that each enjoyable moment is an opportunity to create real moments. The plan is to launch the advocacy campaign this holiday season by using the traditional Christmas reunion but eventually to progress to other family bonding moments. Here we are faced with an opportunity to create new traditions, which will reflect each family’s desire to have a more real meaningful connection that’s free from any distractions.

This is just the beginning for El Real in its pursuit to make real relevance to Filipino families. Let’s start creating Real Moments with El Real.


Make REAL moments this Holiday Season.

Since the dawn of time, (Wow! 'Noong unang panahon' lang ang ibig sabihin nyan.) we, Filipinos celebrate Christmas in our own traditional way. Attend the Misa de Gallo, open gifts and eat Noche Buena with our loved ones. This is the same routine every year. This year, I've had the idea to spice things up and add my new tradition for the most awaited holiday season.

Annually, my family and I would gather and spend the holidays together like every family all over the world, because there's nothing like the warmth of home. And with the grand reunion that's about to happen, I'm very excited to introduce a new and fun tradition that we'll definitely enjoy and will make this holiday more memorable like no other.

As we go through some fun snack ideas, me and my kids wondered 'what if we give the cheese ball a new role in our hapag-kainan?' And so we did. We've decided to make Danes cheese ball into a delectably cheesy treat that we can all enjoy. The rich cheddar taste of Danes Cheese Ball is commonly used to add a festive touch to any pasta, salad, or meat dish. Though, this creamy cheese ball is perfect for making any dish to an instant favorite during Noche Buena, it can also be the highlight of your yuletide feast. We introduce to you our bright idea for appetizer, a cheese platter, featuring Danes Cheese Ball, together with crackers, nuts, ham, brocolli, and grapes. It's the perfect finger food for family members to enjoy while having chit-chats and exchanging throwbacks.


My kids really enjoyed "Rochelle's Danes Cheese Platter" and with these kind of approval from my boys, I'll surely add this to my Noche Buena list because I know that my loved ones will appreciate a fresh new treat once they see it on our table. I can't wait for the smiles on their faces! With tasty holiday treats made even better with Danes Cheese Ball, every member of the family will savor Noche Buena while sharing stories and laughter – no distractions, just shared memories – making this holiday celebration a new and fun tradition filled with deep joy and great food.

If your interested with this idea, Danes Cheese Ball is available in all major supermarkets nationwide. 

They have something special for you too. When you purchase five (5) Danes Cheese Balls 350g or 500g, you get one (1) of the same size for FREE! Buy Danes Cheese Ball 500g or 750g and get FREE Danes Classic Cheese 180g. 

And if you want to avoid holiday traffic, long lines at the grocery, or the hassle of finding a parking spot, you can order Danes Cheese Ball with just a few clicks and have them delivered at your doorstep with honestbee! I so love it because I'm a huge fan of honestbee and it's great that I can easily have Danes Cheese Ball whenever I need it.


Let's enjoy Noche Buena and create more memorable stories with different snack twists - make fun and new traditions with Danes Cheese Ball. Happy holiDANES!
