New Year, New Beginnings

As the clock ticks closer to signify the end of a great year.  I'd like to thank everyone who have been a part of an exciting 2015 for me.  I have been blogging for 4 years now and what a wonderful journey it has been.  What started as an avenue to share new discoveries, passions and adventures led to many exciting experiences, meeting new and reuniting with old friends and working with brands that I love, as well as the hardworking teams behind them, is more than I could ever ask for.

My Birthday Dinner at Cru Steakhouse, Marriott Manila

Last week, I celebrated my birthday at Marriott Manila's fine dining restaurant, Cru Steakhouse.  Although I have been to Marriott Manila many times, it is actually my first time to dine at Cru.  I have to admit, I was excited about this birthday dinner with Mickey.  As a couple, this is one of our firsts together and I have to thank our gracious hosts, Marriott Manila and Director for Marketing Communications, Michelle Garcia, for making my birthday truly memorable.

Double Up on Beauty with Cream SIlk's Daily Treatment Conditioner

I have been coloring my hair for many years now.  I just love how hair color can easily transform a look from average to stunning or even daring (if you like bolder hair color).  On a daily basis, I also use styling tools which can really take its toll on my hair.  A hair cut can only cut the dry ends off, what I need is a hair product that can protect my hair from daily hair damage. 

Now, there's a hair product that can do just that, Cream Silk, enables us women to double up on beauty and style, and color our hair freely as well, by using Cream Silk's Daily Treatment Conditioner.  It combines the intensive care of a treatment and the smoothness from a conditioner in one.  For busy girls like us, I love that we have a two-in-one product that we can easily get off the shelves and use on a daily basis.

New dishes, Christmas Meals and the new Catering menu at Tapella by Gaudi in Greenbelt 5

What I love about the holidays is the opportunity to reunite with friends and at the same time gather with family to celebrate Christmas and to welcome the New Year as well.  One of my favorite dining places is Tapella by Gaudi, I love that they are tucked in their own private corner in Greenbelt 5 and they serve delectable Spanish dishes by Executive Chef Robert Spakowski. 

Last week, I received an invitation from Tapella to come visit them again and try some of their new dishes on the menu and also to share with all of you what they have in store for their Christmas and New Year offerings.  How can I say no? 

On Friday lunch, being welcomed by Tapella's Executive Chef, Robert Spakowski

The SM Supermalls Mobile App

If you live in The Philippines, I'm pretty sure you have a favorite SM Supermall that you frequent for shopping and dining, watching movies, going bowling or skating, or even spending some valuable me time in a salon or spa. 

Now, there is a fast and easy way to know what's happening in a SM Supermall near you with the launch of the SM Supermalls Mobile App!  Now you can search the nearest SM Supermall for your favorite stores, take advantage of great deals, know what's showing on the big screen (including screening times) and never lose track of where you parked your car.
