Have you ever wanted to help out other people while enjoying shopping at the same time? Early this year AttiGO and World Vision Development Foundation (WVDF) partnered to create a platform where shopping could also be giving. A weird partnership for AttiGO is the country's newest online shop while the latter's support community programs aimed at improving the lives of over 20,000 children and 16 million people in 33 provinces and 44 cities in the Philippines. An unusual pairing yet it turned to be a good one.
The partnership created a voucher the code "WorldVisio60th". This code gives shoppers discount on AttiGO products and part of the proceeds goes to WVDF. It give opportunity to AttiGO's custoers to help raise funds for a child's schooling and provide sustainable livelihood to sponsored families while shopping on the online platform. Furthermore customer can donate an additional amount to his or her charity of choice.
So as the saying goes, "It's better to give than to receive." For the holiday season, a part of the proceed with the voucher code "WorldVision60th" is used, will help the WVDF raise funds for them to give Noche Buena packages to their partner communities.

Christmas is almost here. And with that, the cold weather, the traditional simbang gabi and the sumptuous Filipino delicacies that are best taken after the early morning mass such as the puto bumbong (steamed rice cake), made more flavorful with a freshly brewed steaming cup of coffee. In fact, a piping hot brewed coffee blends perfectly with the breezy, cold weather in December.


While coffee shops have become ubiquitous in major urban centres like Metro Manila, where they mushroomed overnight thanks to the rising wealth of Filipinos stemming from the growing economy, nothing beats having your own cup of coffee brewed at home. And how does one make a perfect cup of coffee right inside his own kitchen and even in the office? BREVILLE has the answer.

Australia’s premier brand of kitchen products, exclusively distributed in the Philippines by IAJ Wellness Corp., has an array of coffee machines that will help any barista, would-be or professional, make that perfect cup coffee at home and in the office. Among these coffee machines include the BREVILLE Barista Express  and the BREVILLE Barista Express Cranberry.

The Barista Express, which grinds, doses and extracts coffee beans in one, will capture the freshness of coffee as it processes beans into espresso in less than a minute. It has an in-built conical burr grinder that allows one to grind only what one needs directly into the portafilter. It's also adjustable in grind size and dose, so one can tweak it according to his taste. Moreover, its patented Razor dosing tool trims the puck for consistent extraction, while the PID digital temperature control delivers accurate water temperature throughout the extraction.
"In BREVILLE, we believe a fresh cup of coffee is the best coffee you’ll ever have," says Haj Cortez, Business Unit Manager for BREVILLE Coffee & Kettle."The machine allows you to grind the beans right before extracting your espresso to fully maximize the coffee flavor that goes into your favorite cup."

Having a coffee machine at home or the office will also entail savings and is more convenient.
"You’d also save more money if you invest in an espresso machine and go unli-coffee whenever and however you want, rather than buy it from a coffee shop multiple times a day. It’s also more convenient as you don’t need to endure long lines just to order your usual -- you can make your own in less than a minute and share a cup or two with family and friends.” Haj added.

IAJ also makes it easier to own a coffee machine through its instalment scheme. For as low as P3,333 per month and payable in 12 months, anyone can own a BREVILLE espresso machine. What's more, its online store allows up to 24 months at zero interest rate for BDO credit cardholders.

Given its health benefits, consuming a cup of coffee or two a day is perfect not only during the holiday season but all year round. Studies showed that drinking coffee is linked to decreased death from digestive diseases.  It's also associated with a lower risk of death from circulatory and cerebrovascular diseases for women.

BREVILLE, the trusted brand since it started manufacturing kitchen products in 1932, is available in leading retail outlets in the country such as SM Home, SM Appliance, Rustan’s, True Value, Landmark, Anson’s, Automatic Center. They can also be purchased online through www.breville.com.ph, Lazada, Knots & Pans, as well as showrooms, direct agents and resellers.

Hi #DashingMomSquad yes, I know that you are all on Holiday moods right now. There will be a lot of Christmas Parties and that will include eating lots and lots of food. You can be stress if you will be the one who is assign to plan the party itself. But you need to think also for yourself. How about spending sometime for your skin? Read more to know some tips on how to look glowing and youthful during this Holiday Season.

Always Keep Hydrated

The holidays are the perfect excuse to indulge in booze and stay late at night especially with all the Christmas get-togethers you need to attend. But keep in mind that too much alcohol and less sleep can take a toll on the appearance of your skin. “Skin care addresses two concerns: wellness and aesthetics or our sense of being attractive, that’s why we do have to take care of our skin and not take it for granted most especially during the holidays which can be really stressful,” emphasizes Dr. Lalaine Salazar, Medical Director of the SvelT’i Health and Beauty Centre in Timog Avenue, Quezon City.

Drinking lots of water can help keep your skin hydrated but there are also other ways of doing so.

PURIFY AND NOURISH

No matter how late you come home from a night of drinking and partying, never forget to rid your face first off all the make-up you wore and end your day with nourishing your skin. The thorough cleansing and washing away of make-up before sleeping is also an important part of skin care. To cap the skin care regimen, Dr.Salazar recommends a cleanser that can prevent the onset of pores, blemishes, and acne; it will also improve skin tone and heal any skin inflammation.

After washing your face to get all the make-up gunk off, apply a proper facial serum that provides anti-aging effects accelerated by the climate, stress, and even genetics. “It makes you look youthful and energetic. Our stem cell ampoule also reduces the appearances of fine lines and wrinkles, improves the skin tone, and softens the skin as well.” Says Dr.Salazar.

GIVE YOUR SKIN A DETOX

The holiday season is definitely a time for gift-giving so why not treat yourself by giving your skin a much-deserved detox? Aside from eating healthy and doing a good amount of exercise, you can also gift yourself with a cream that can help bring back the skin glow that was lost during the holiday frenzy.

“Externally, you can apply every morning our massage cream that infuses the skin with collagen. Collagen rejuvenates the skin and makes it appear youthful. Our production of it reduces as we age, but products like the massage cream infuses regular doses of collagen that add that let the skin’s natural glow to shine.”

“Since Christmas is a time for giving, it is high-time that you give yourself the best gift you can have and that is the right skin care regimen. With all the stress you have to deal with during the holiday season, a trip to a skin clinic such as Svelt’i is a great reward for yourself. Do proper skin care daily and you will see the results,” enthuses Dr. Salazar. “To ensure that you are on the right track, you can confirm the methods and outcome of your skin care regimen with clinical specialists who will advise you accordingly. A monthly visit can do wonders for the overall wellness and aesthetic appearance of your skin.”

TREAT YOURSELF

Of course, one of the best skin regimens ever is to stay healthy and keep a positive outlook because it would definitely manifest on your skin. But since it’s the holiday season, why don’t you give yourself a Christmas treat and go all out on skin care? “If you want to reward yourself this Christmas, go for SkinRenew,” says Dr.Salazar. “It works on three levels that really rejuvenates and firms our skin. It exfoliates, infuses, and oxygenates it. Exfoliation removes the dead cells from the skin and replaces them with new fresh ones. Infusion gives the skin cells the nutrients they need to fight disease and the effects of aging. Oxygenation makes the skin vibrant and gives it that youthful glow.” Nothing would be more rewarding than having healthy and glowing skin to welcome 2018, right?

The holiday season may take a toll on your skin but with these holiday skin care tips, you can keep  your skin looking stress-free and beautiful and welcome 2018 with a bang!
