Bench Cafe Now Open in Greenbelt 3

After the success of their first branch within the flagship store of Bench Retail in BGC, Bench Cafe recently opened their second branch at the 2nd floor of Greenbelt 3, Makati. 

I was one of the foodies invited to their exclusive media launch last December 15, 2018. We had the place all to ourselves, and I got to appreciate the ambience and beautiful interiors that gave a chill vibe. During that moment they were working on the finishing touches of the takeout/standout counter where the signature pinoy merienda snacks such as turon, banana-que, mais con yelo and halohalo will be served.

10 Must Have Products for the New Mom

If you are a new mom and you’re wondering, “What ELSE do I need for the baby?” I’m sure you probably have the necessities to start caring for your newborn. How about asking yourself this:

What products can make my life easier as a new mom?

Doesn’t that sound better? Haha! I wonder why I never thought about this with my first baby? I was completely clueless and relied mostly on gifts and just the basics. On my second pregnancy last 2017, I was more aware of what worked and what didn’t in raising my first born. Plus, I was exposed to a lot of mommy groups and events that opened my eyes to so many products that made mom life easier. This time around, I have an army of new products that I have proven to be worth every single peso. Ugh, I wish I had these 6 years ago! Continue reading “10 Must Have Products for the New Mom”

My Facial Experience in Bench Skin Expert

I can’t believe it’s been 5 years since my last facial! During my single years, I made it a point to visit a skin care clinic at least once every 2-3 months. When motherhood happened, I just didn’t have time for hour-long sessions and preferred getting products that can do the job at home. So when I got invited by Bench Skin Expert to try out their services, I was ecstatic! I’ve heard great reviews about their facials! So I went there last weekend and was pampered with a super relaxing INtensiv Hydrating Facial – a luxurious treatment chosen for me by Dr Cha Zosa, one of the skin experts. ♥️ Continue reading “My Facial Experience in Bench Skin Expert”

Ultherapy – Now Available in Bench Skin Expert

I had the privilege to attend the press launch of Ultherapy by Bench Skin Expert and it was an interesting learning experience for me! Having a medical background, I was fascinated as to how the ultrasound energy works to lift and tighten the skin. I have heard so much about this technology but it is only now that I truly understand what it is capable of and why I would recommend it more than other procedures.

My Breastfeeding Journey

When I gave birth to our second baby – Lauren, I was extra confident that I’ll be nailing the breastfeeding game this time. I mean, coming from that “initiation” we experienced with our eldest daughter, Brianna, I thought things will be a lot easier the second time around. I thought I would have more milk too! Turned out, I was right AND wrong!

How I pulled off a DIY Unicorn Birthday Party Without an Event Stylist

For those who know me, I am one practical and most of the time – frugal momma. When it comes to planning for my kid’s birthdays, I know I don’t need to hire an event stylist or planner when I know I can do those things on my own! For one, those services are way too expensive nowadays! I can buy so many things with the amount they are charging just for styling. And since there are so many resources we can get ideas from, I guess the only question would be “Do I have the time to DIY?” 😁 Continue reading “How I pulled off a DIY Unicorn Birthday Party Without an Event Stylist”
