Love Yourself Through Proper Health Care With SvelTi

Saturday, September 23, 2017 Philippines


With today's technology and having a 24/7 connection to high-pressure jobs, self-care is often neglected. Entrepreneurs and professionals juggle work and time for family that oftentimes, self-care is forgotten. In those situations, it is the provider or family head's well-being that is unintentionally sacrificed on the altar of time and obligations. This person would be simply too busy to develop a fitness program or even stick to a nutritious diet. As a result, he or she would become overweight and their skin becomes vulnerable to the effects of pollution and stress. 

This unhealthy and demanding routine is the reason why SvelTi's highly trained team of clinical specialists take the necessary time to sit down with each patient, learn their medical history and lifestyle, and prescribe an individual program that can help them reach their health and beauty goals.

Not surprisingly, most of the patients that consult with SvelTi is in order to look fabulous and become more physically fit! According to Dr. Salazar, a first couple of sessions of their prescribed program does show visible results such as: loss of one to two inches from a once bulging waistline, a reduction of five pounds from one's weight without having to run a treadmill, and the elimination of pimples, blackheads, and wrinkles that had been festering on the face for months. 

Dr. Salazar does urge the patient to continue with the program and complement it with a healthy lifestyle such as regular exercise and a nutritious diet. “That’s how they can sustain the first results,” she advises. “Attaining your desired physique, weight, and smoothness of skin is not a one-time thing, and will take commitment on their part. What’s encouraging about our treatments is that the patient is encouraged by the result and does the follow-up sessions. They come here happy and enthused, and not dragging their feet, because they know they will be healthier and look more attractive after the session.”

Dr. Salazar pauses then adds, “Unlike that old health slogan they used to throw at us, I believe that there can be gain even without pain. And it all starts with a firm decision to love yourself and fulfill your own self-care program.”

Those who want to try SvelTi’s unique and effective approach can avail of the various promos that they are offering this special anniversary month of September.

What Happened At Sample Room's Vlogging Workshop

Saturday, September 16, 2017 Philippines


Try before you buy is the phrase that first comes into my minds when I hear the word Sample Room. Ever since I started regularly posting of reviews on my blog, Sample Room Philippines has been a big part of my what I am now. Without Sample Room, most of the items that I reviewed on my blog would be from my own pocket. 

Last September 16, I was invited to attend their first Vlogging Workshop for being their Roommate of the Month for the month of November 2016. Yay! I love the chosen topic and I think it is the first time that a workshop was done and implemented by a combination of famous Vloggers in the Philippines. This is an upgrade for what I can do because nowadays, people rely more on videos than blogs. It is a sad reality and I know that I have to keep up with it so I am trying my hands with vlogging. I am sure that this workshop will help me a lot. 

I am thankful for Sample Room and their sponsors for making this workshop happen. Big thanks to Belo, Ponds, Dentiste Kiss, Happy Skin and Fujifilm. 

Having our favorite vloggers, Gen-zel Habab, Rhea Bue and Say Tioco as the ones who will do the workshops is much better experience for us. They started from something small like me and look at how well they are now, right? It is just simply inspiring that makes their stories more relatable! 

Besides the workshop, there are booths prepared by Pond's and Fujifilm. All the cameras were displayed at the event and I realized that Fujifilm is one of the best choice in choosing a vlogging camera! (I hope I could have one soon so that I can do more vlogging videos!)

For Pond's booth, they brought a machine to check your skin's condition and it is totally free!

After the workshops and demonstration, a question and answer portion was held by Ms. Ingrid Nieto. This is my favorite part because all the questions that Ms. Ingrid asked also came into my mind and I am glad to get the answers. 

If there is one thing that made an impact with what the Vloggers shared during Sample Room's Vlogging Workshop, it is that as long as at least one person still believes on what you do and what you can do, nothing should stop you. Wow, that was really inspiring words because there are times that I want to give up blogging and vlogging but when I heard about their life advises, it made a huge difference on how I think and feel right now. 

Sample Room will not be here if not for its founder, Ms. Sophie Uy. Thank you so much Ms. Sophie for everything that you generously shared and opened the path for free items for us bloggers and beauty enthusiasts. 

As shared on the event, something new is coming soon and I am excited with Sample Room's newest platform! Watch out!

Watch my video for the highlights of the event on my YouTube at: 

Of course, my blog post will not be complete without photos from my co-bloggers/friends!

With my love, Phoebe of

I am in love with the Ring Light, it is my first time to try it personally and have my photo taken and I just love it! It is now on top of my list for must-haves! 

I am so happy that I was able to attend this workshop plus look at the souvenir loot bag! There were a lot of items inside! It even includes one of the things that I always wanted to buy but never bought, the Gorilla Pod!

For my next blog post, I will be featuring the Soban Restaurant that me, Phoebe, Andie, Kim and Earth went to eat after the workshop. Thank you for reading and please sign-up to Sample Room to try items before buying them! 

Under The Sea Cafe: My Experience + Rochelle's Birthday Celebration

Friday, September 15, 2017 Philippines


At least even for a day, I became a mermaid! Hooray! I am grateful that as the day goes by, new cafes and restaurants with unique experience and great food to offer becomes readily available. I have a long list of must-try places that I was unable to visit yet. 

Included from the list is the Under The Sea Cafe located on the third floor at 80 Maginhawa Street. Under The Sea is a cafe designed exactly like under the sea. The interiors were carefully and artistically painted with water, corals and sea creatures. It even had a boat anchored at the ceiling that I find quite charming!

When I first stepped inside the cafe, I felt like I was transported inside an aquarium. A huge one! Everywhere I look is simply amazing! There is even a spot perfect for photography opportunity near the entrance. A human-size seashell that you can sit on while wearing their FREE mermaid outfits is the perfect scene to do inside this cafe. For a minimum order of 150php, you are free to use their costumes. Don't worry, they are expandable and available in different colors so you can take a pick of your choice! Of course, Rochelle (, Michelle ( and me took advantage of this studio-like set-up. 

Tables were decorated with sea creatures stuffed toys table toppers. The kid inside you will surely awaken in astonishment to the place. 

The food offered is affordable and the serving size is great. Their menu is complete from appetizers, entrees, pasta, dessert, and drinks. Check out the menu below:

I want to try all of the food but of course I cannot eat them all in one visit. LOL. Anyway, we ordered pasta and appetizer. By the way, their food is delicious! We were satisfyingly stuffed that we were not able to order desserts. 

Cheesy Tuna Alfredo 150php

Caljun Fish and Fries 170php

PiƱa Colada Milkshake 120php and Vanilla Mermaid Milkshake 130php

The main reason why we tried the Under The Sea Cafe is to celebrate Rochelle's birthday and mermaid is one of her favorite characters. This is the perfect place for her to enjoy her day! Thank you so much for being a good friend Rochelle, have a great and blessed days ahead!

We took this opportunity to also announce the winners for Rochelle's Meet and Greet on September 24, 2017! Were you able to watch our Facebook Live? I hope you did so you could check if you won, just in case not, check out Rochelle's Facebook page for the Facebook Live video that she also posted after being live. 

I did a short vlog for the day, watch it on my YouTube account here:
