Dunlopillo launches the Talasilver Wave Mattresses

There are a lot of people who go through sleepless nights, and they don't feel well-rested the following morning.  Mood and alertness suffers, memory and concentration takes a dive, and performance at work falters.  What they don't know is that the mattress they sleep on plays a vital role on their sleeping patterns. 

Dunlopillo is one of the few companies that are committed to provide quality sleep care mattresses.  Recently Dunlopillo launched a revolutionary latex technology called the Talasilver Wave that sets it apart from the current mattresses in the market. 

It's unique design allows you to move freely without compromising body support and comfort.  It also aligns the spine for optimal blood circulation and reduces one's tendency to toss and turn in sleep.  It keeps the body's temperature at a comfortable level by allowing excellent ventilation and air circulation.  Furthermore, Talasilver Wave boasts of the Nano-Silver Technology that eliminates and prevents growth of 99.9% of harmful bacteria.

Solique x Marilen Styles

One of my favorite de-stressing activities is going to a spa or salon and have a major pampering session.  Last week, I had the opportunity to do just that at Coco Nail Studio.  I had  a much needed mani-pedi using the newest colors of Solique Gel Polish by Girl Stuff, Serenity and Rose Quartz.  These relaxing, cool colors is released under a collaboration with Interior Designer, Blogger and Mom, Marilen Faustino-Montenegro.

I am SM Woman

SM Woman recently held a 3-night fashion event entitled "I am SM Woman" from June 14 to 16, 2016.  For each night, they had creative styling activities, a theme-based fashion show and a time-based sale on selected fashion finds in the evening.  To pump up the shopping experience, they have featured DJ's every night. 

On the first night, it was all about honoring exceptional women with their "I am Exceptional" theme, on the 2nd night, they showcased trendy, work wear perfect clothes for women who are fashionable and career driven with their "I am Driven" theme.  On the 3rd and last night, they featured a collection that compliments a woman's curves and key fashion pieced that will leave a great impression with their "I am Strong and Confident" theme.  It was three fun nights of celebrating women.  

I had the privilege of attending the 2nd night, "I am Driven" fashion event with my fun blogger friends.  There are several common denominators here:  a love for fashion, career-driven women who also know how to have fun as well.

For the "I am Driven" collection of SM woman, there were a lot of on-point fashionable pieces.  They featured pieces in black, white and navy, also muted colors, and a slight punch of color in orange.  My favorite key pieces are the ones in white and muted colors.

7107 Culture + Cuisine

I was recently watching Beat Bobby Flay on the Food Network.  One challenger chef proudly showcased Filipino cuisine, and Iron Chef Michael Symon commented that "it's one of the most underrated cuisine in the world".  Let's face it, we Filipinos love our rich culinary cuisine, there really is nothing like homegrown dishes that also serve as the ultimate comfort food.  In recent years, Filipino cuisine has gone global as well as we see our local dishes find its way in menus of restaurants abroad. 

There's a new restaurant that had just opened in Bonifacio Global City called 7107 Culture + Cuisine, it showcases the best of what our country has to offer - the beauty, richness, and uniqueness of our culture and cuisine through four different sections: 
  • Kanto - Order merienda treats like Sisig Nachos, Malunggay Pestocino and Chori Burger Sliders.
  • Dampa - Go on a seafood adventure through dishes such as Bangus Caesar Salad, Vitamin Sea Chowder and Bangus Sisig Flipside.
  • Talyasi - Is reminiscent of food that is served in many Filipino gatherings and brings forth Filipino favorites such as Krispy Kare Kare and Bulalo v2.0
  • Himagas - Indulge in local sweet treats such as the Molten Pastillas Lava Cake, Buko Pie ala mode and Epic 7107.
Here are some of the dishes at 7107 Culture + Cuisine:
