Human Heart Nature Products

As I have mentioned in some of my previous posts, I only purchase and promote products that I really use and love. I am passionate about the things I believe in. Simple things like reading the label and the rest of its content will raise our awareness and lead us in making better choices.

I'm now a proud dealer of Human (Heart) Nature products. I do my very best to patronize local brands. I really admire Gandang Kalikasan Inc's advocacy. Besides making quality, world-class, affordable, certified organic products, they also help bring jobs and create thriving communities for farmers all over the Philippines. It's truly a worthwhile cause.

My Best Sellers' Sample Pack:

This includes: Tough Love Dishwashing Liquid, Healthy Lotion Berry Bliss, Feminine Wash Fresh, Premium Deodorant Powder Fresh, Sunflower Seed Beauty Oil, Nourishing Facial Wash, Lip Balm Peppermint, Pure Strength Men's Facial Wash, Spray Sanitizer Citrus Burst, Citronella Bug Shield Oil, Moisturizing Shampoo Mandarin with Creamfoam, Fragrance Free Bar Soap, 10 Human Nature Magalogues and 10 Human Nature Fliers.

I stocked up on these Spray Sanitizers and Bug Sprays. The Citrus Burst was the first ever Human Nature product I have tried. My husband got it as a Christmas present from work. I am smitten with the Citronella smell of the bug sprays. These will keep the mosquitoes and other insects away.

I also took a photo of my first few orders...

Becoming a dealer is not just all about business. It's such a rewarding feeling to be able to support local brands that teach us patriotism and to be able to contribute to our society even in our own little way. 

For inquiries and orders, you may contact me through email

Happy Hunting! <3<3<3

Nestle Acti-V Go Lounge Event

Last Saturday, I attended the Nestle Acti-V Go Lounge product launch at Romulo's Cafe, one of my favorite restaurants in the Scout area. It was my first ever brand event as a blogger. 

When I first got the invite from Nestle through Nuffnang, I was ecstatic because my first invite was from a brand that I truly believe in and its products have been part of our family for generations. Another perk was I get to bring a friend too! It was like the stars were all aligned for me at the moment. The timing was perfect because I've been meaning to unwind and just go lounge somewhere close to nature after being swamped with work for weeks.

When I arrived at the venue, I was immediately asked to register and choose what kind of spa service I would like to avail. I chose to have a foot massage with hot stone. The treatment was heavenly! It soothed all my aches and pains away! 

Phoebe, Rhea and me snacked on truffle oil/salt seasoned popcorn and fruit shakes afterwards. 

Then we proceeded to do our very own artwork for the canvass chiller bags Nestle has provided. It was fun because we get to express our own personalities through our designs and drawings. We didn't get to watch the short films upstairs because we spent more time designing our chiller bags.

And then it was buffet time. (wink) I was so smitten with the table setup and styling of the room. I felt like I was part of Alice in Wonderland attending the Mad Hatter's un-birthday party.

Ms. Cherie Gil hosted the program together with Kakki Teodoro to endorse Nestle Acti-V yogurt with ActiFibras. She also shared her secrets of staying young, vibrant and beautiful even at age 50.

My key takeaways from Ms. Cherie Gil:
  • Always start the day with gratitude. Gratitude is key in living a happy life.
  • Exercise. According to her, she took jazz lessons at age of 11, started working out in the gym since she was 15 and now she's learning the tango. She said it is important to immerse yourself in physical activities that is why she exposed her kids outdoors when they were young. She even has a grand aunt at age 96 who still active and goes swimming up to this day.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Increase your fiber intake by having a daily serving of Nestle Acti-V with ActiFibras. This is the only yogurt that has fiber. Fiber improves intestinal regularity and transit that helps alleviate the discomforts of constipation and abdominal bloating.
  • Keep smiling.
  • Off tangent: The liquid she threw at Ms. Sharon Cuneta was really white wine in the movie Bituin Walang Ningning where she said the infamous line "You're nothing but a second-rate trying hard copy cat!"
  • Her real name is Evangeline Rose.
I'm very fortunate to have met her in person and to have a photo taken with her. (Thanks Phoebs!) She is a woman of great influence, beauty and substance.

Then we had a serving of Nestle Acti-V for dessert. It tastes sooo good! I like the strawberry bits that come with it. I know for a fact that this helps aid my digestion considering the amount of food I ate from the buffet. The best part was I get to take home a week's supply of Nestle Acti-V.

Thank you Nuffang and Nestle for this wonderful opportunity! It was a day full of indulgence, pampering and friendship!

Snacking on Speculoos Part 2

My sister in law brought this at home a few days ago. It's the solid/original version of the infamous spreadable one. =)

This is great stuff! I like this type of shortcrust biscuit. It's thin, crunchy, not too sweet and the flavor is not overwhelming. I've tried it with a steaming cup of brewed coffee and then one time with peppermint tea. It goes well with both beverages.

Wishing everyone a great weekend!

Penne Al Telefono

My side of the family loves Cibo. We've loved it ever since it opened its doors way way back. It's our go to place for bonding over good conversations and good food.

We had a family lunch last Sunday at our favorite Italian resto.

Spremuta D'Arancia and Limone

Top: Insalate di Mare, Penne Al Telefono, Spinaci Zola
Bottom: Prosciutto di Parma Rossa, Farfalle ala Genovese, Aglio Rosmarino
Our most recent family get-together has inspired me to rehash the beloved Penne Al Telefono. Thanks to the Pepper blog for the recipe. I did some modifications by adding fresh basil leaves and 4 tablespoons of tomato paste to the sauce while it simmers. 

With all humility, the result was amazing! I think the secret was the chicken boullion. 

By the way telefono is a playful reference to mozzarella cheese when heated curls like a telephone cord.
