World Savings Day 2021: Ways to start or improve your savings

World Savings Day usually falls on the 30th of October and has since been observed by actively encouraging more people to start saving. While Halloween gets majority of the attention during this timeframe, savings banks would work with schools, corporations and/or different associations in spreading the idea and importance of saving. Steadily, the practice has grown since its first establishment way back 1934 during the 1st International Savings Bank Congress.

Not gonna lie, I just knew about World Savings Day through the recent webinar that I attended and with the few days left, I can say that it was the perfect timing. It’s great knowing that there are companies who are pro-active when it comes to promoting the idea of saving. Conducting webinars, inovating their products, etc. Taking myself as an example, I was used to my conventional way of budgeting that I did not bother exploring more, but because of the webinar, I had more options that I believe I can try in the near future, i.e. this coming payday.

Little by little, adjustment on things around us started to surface. Hence, the coin, “new normal.” Adjust or be left behind. It was tough but it is the only way to survive this trying times. And our ways to save is not an exception. Izza of SavingsPinay.PH shared the following to-do list that can be a guide in adjusting our savings practice or even to start one.

At first look, it might appear overwhelming but just keep in mind that first steps are usually the hardest  to take. And in this time of change, we must be more open to adjustments. Take them as innovations that can bring us to better places.

When it comes to financial awareness, Cebuana Lhullier is one to take those first steps to improving their products and giving a wider platform for the masses. They took the innitiative to make it easier for most Filipinos to acquire a savings account with the new and improved deposit and eMoney products such as Cebuana Lhuiller Micro Savings account.

It has basically everything that one needs when starting to save especially in this pandemic. Opening an acount is easier since they’ve partnered with Cebuana Lhuillier pawnshops which has branches at almost every corner of the country. The eCebuana app also comes in handy in handling your hand-earned money.

Take the first step, be an Iponaryo today and experience convenience in saving first-hand.

Panalo ang may ipon, after all!

OKADA Manila’s Hope In Full Bloom

It’s no doubt that Japan has the most beautiful sceneries especially during spring season, no, actually every season in Japan has its own beauty. And by this time, if only things were the same back then, most of us would have been posing under cherry blossom trees there. With the Japan tomi8urism being more welcoming to tourists, I can only imagine the Instagram feed of many Filipinos who might be able to visit the said country.

Personally, I was lucky enough to experience spring season in Japan but it was already a few years back. While I am here wishing about being under those pink flowers again, as if reading my thoughts or was she a genie sent to grant wishes, Ms. Patricia of Okada Manila shared about their ongoing event that has the Spring Season theme. Imagine my excitement when she sent me the photos!!

It is called Okada Manila’s Sakura Festival: Hope in Full Bloom. And it runs from March 8-28, 2021. Okada Manila made an effort to at least make us experience Japan’s sakura season without having to travel by plane. They recreated the beauty of the pink scenery right here on our own land with the makeshift sakura tress and iconic toori gates, giving almost the real Japan experience.

While gatherings are still not allowed, the displays are open to everyone to take photos with. You can simply drop by the area and have your photos taken. Post your photos with the hashtags #SakuraOkada #OkadaManila and you might receive Okad Manila merchnadise!

Shall you have some extra time, Okada Manila also provided simple workshops for a more Japan feel. With a proof of purchase from Okada Manila’s merchants, you can join the kanji writing or origami making workshops and even have a chance to experince wearing the traditional Japanese clothing which is the kimono.

Workshop kits will also be given to participants as a form of token for joining tve events. On top of these activities, public safety is still the number one priority so the guests will be provided PPE or poncho on top of their clothes so as to provide safety to everyone.

For more information, you can visit OKADA MANILA’s Twitter page.

Lifestyle Diaries: #LolaCares

Compared to last year, more people are allowed to go outside now. People need to go to work, people need to provide for their needs. With this, a simple effort of making sure we feel well especially after going outside is just as important as staying inside. After a long day’s work, a dose of Lola Remedios Food Supplement Syrup can ease the heavy feeling and body malaise. One sachet is filled with all-natural ingredients packed to a ready-to-drink sachet.

Almost a year after quarantine, the fear that COVID-19 brings still lingers in every part of the country. It’s good that each city has been exerting effort in keeping the spread of the virus controlled but we, as citizens are the core of this efforts. As overused as it may sound, change must really start from ourselves. We must be more mindful of our physical condition and not be complacent in dealing with the unseen.

In every feeling of Lamig, let Lola Remedios provide comfort so that you a one less thing to worry about in this trying times.

Zilingo announces a collaboration with The Walt Disney Company (South Asia) to launch MARVEL, Disney and Star Wars-themed fashion and lifestyle collections

E-commerce platform Zilingo today announced a collaboration with The Walt Disney Company (South Asia) to develop and retail over 20 collections comprising more than 500 products inspired by beloved stories and characters from MARVEL, Disney and Star Wars.

“This collaboration is particularly personal for me. I think it is safe to say that almost everyone grew up looking up to MARVEL Super Heroes and I am a big fan myself. The journey of a hero is all about overcoming challenges and conquering your fears and when we met the Disney team, we instantly connected on our shared values of courage and hope. We could immediately envision what we wanted to do with Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame and other properties. Over the next few quarters, we hope to bring inspired collections to customers across Asia,” said Ankiti Bose, Co-founder and CEO, Zilingo.

“We are focused on developing exceptional products for Disney, MARVEL, Pixar and Star Wars fans with partners who share our values and high expectations on quality and experience. Working with Zilingo, we are bringing high quality products with an amazing design aesthetic to fans and consumers in Southeast Asia and India,” said Dan Dossa, Vice President & General Manager, Consumer Products Commercialization, The Walt Disney Company Southeast Asia, India, Middle East and North Africa.

The first collection of the collaboration, Marvel X Zilingo, launches hot on the heels of the record-breaking Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame. The collection is inspired by the edgy styles of 90’s street fashion and the epic stories of fan-favourite Super Heroes such as Iron Man, Captain America and Captain Marvel. It speaks to both fashion lovers and die-hard fans of MARVEL, taking a unique spin on creating a merchandise line that is both wearable and on-trend. The range will feature t-shirts, sweatshirts, tank tops, shorts, skirts, leggings and joggers.

The Marvel X Zilingo collection is now available on Zilingo (https://zilingo.com/) in Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Singapore. It will also be available on top e-commerce platforms like Tokopedia, Shopee and Lazada across Southeast Asia, and Amazon and Flipkart in India.

In the coming months, fans can also look forward to Aladdin, Frozen 2 and Star Wars-themed collections slated to coincide with Disney’s upcoming cinematic releases, alongside the launch of a Mickey & Friends collection in August. From chic athleisure gear to trendy summer casuals for men and women, to pyjamas, lunchboxes and water bottles for children, these collections will delight Disney fans of all ages.

Each collection will be managed by Zilingo’s private label service; a one-stop technology platform helping brands build their own private labels – from design and manufacturing to logistics, analytics and distribution. Differentiating itself from other marketplaces through its B2B arm which offers brands and media properties access to the entire fashion supply chain from yarn to closet, Zilingo is making its collections easily accessible to over 23% of the global population across five markets in Asia.

The service has been made possible as a result of the company’s swift expansion from its B2C platform to its B2B services, having identified and unlocked value for merchants and manufacturers across the supply chain all over Asia. It extends to businesses globally, regardless of size, that seek access to Asia’s producers who account for US$1.4 trillion of the US$3 trillion global fashion manufacturing market. Zilingo’s presence in Southeast Asia and India allows it to offer a unique online retail experience for Disney fans and fashion-forward consumers at the heart of a region where e-commerce is scaling rapidly, making it Asia’s fastest growing marketplace.

5 Reasons Why It’s Never Too Late to Get Yourself a BDJ Planner

It was late January of 2016 when I first bought my own BDJ planner. I was simply interested with the coupons that went with it never knowing that my 2016 was into something better. Hence, I decided to get myself one again this year. To experience the benefits of having a BDJ Power Planner, though a little bit later than before, I decided to be a Bella again this year.

It’s already a couple of days past the third month of 2017, some may think it is already too late to get a planner but I believe having one is still worth the try. Below are the five reasons why it is still a perfect time to be a 2017 Bella.

1. Monthly Events
During my first year as a Bella, I would always get excited browsing through ilovebdj.com because of the events that were being held every month. Such events offer exciting opportunities to all attendees. The topics were all beneficial —life-changing even— and the guests they picked were all inspiring. The BDJ staffs handling each events were very friendly as well which made me want to keep on attending every event last year.

https://www.instagram.com/p/BQrmWwIjYBw/?taken-by=fuukadeadgril

And they started 2017 with a blast, with the first BDJ Rendezvous this year. BDJ Rensezvous: Woman Up! was held last February 11 at Ayala Malls the 30th in Pasig. I was privileged to be invited and went home with lots of freebies!

So there’s still a chance to join if you grab your BDJ planners now but fret not because there are more events in line this year. 😉

For previous and upcoming BDJ events, visit here.

2.Year-long valid coupons
Most of the coupons included in the Perks of a Bella booklet are valid from January 2017 to December 2017 which means you can enjoy being a Bella for the whole year with almost 20+ different brands. You can also score free planners with their 2017 Belle de Jour Coupon Completion promo where in you just use atleast 40 coupons by September 30, 2017.

https://images.benchmarkemail.com/client54656/image3952637.jpg3. Freebies~
From time to time, I will receive emails regarding a new product from BDJ’s partner brands and they would like Bellas to experience it first-hand. Having a BDJ planner opened a lot of discoveries when it comes to cosmetics and skin care because they’ve partnered with numerous brands to fit each Bella’s lifestyle. The freebies are given randomly so better get that BDJ planner now so you won’t miss a chance. 🙂

4.In-planner features
When you buy a BDJ planner, you don’t just get a planner, you get a more organized life. In my case, that is. Aside from the monthly inspirational notes, goals list, dream board, 2017 checklist, a separate event calendar, journal entry pages and more, I really found the following in-planner features helpful:
*2017 Goals pageto help you focus on the most important goals this year
*Menstrual trackerbecause menstrual cycle plays a big role in our health condition
*Bills trackerto keep track on your expenses and manage them accordingly
*Cash flow tracker to see your progress in handling your hard-earned money
So if you still struggle on remembering where and how you spent your pay check every month, this planner is best for you. ^_^

5. Meet new people with the same interest as you
BDJ stands true to its tagline, “We are more than just a planner, we’re a community.” for the wide-range of events and gatherings that they hold every year each focusing on women empowering each other. I was more inspired to blog too because of the entries I see on the Bella Blogs page.

There you have it. These are based on my experience during my first year as a Bella and I hope that through these, more women would be inspired to become Bella’s as well.

You can avail of the BDJ planners at your favorite bookstores or order online via ilovebdj.com

So, see you on the upcoming 2017 BDJ events, Bella! ❤

 

Crochet-lover mom clothes her daugter with cute costumes

Trisha, owner of Pink Paradise blog is a very proud mom to cute baby girl Cless. A quick look on her blog strongly suggests that you prepare yourself for possible kawaii-ness overdosage. [kawaii = cute]

She is happily married and is a full-time mom now. But with a lot of hobbies. ^_^ I guess you just really can’t take away art in an artist’s heart. That’s why she still manages to explore yet another hobby which is crocheting while taking care of her hubby and their baby.

Brace yourselves for cuteness overload that is baby Cless in creatively crocheted costumes.

1. Literally ‘Little’ Mermaid

I think this is Trisha’s first attempt on making her baby’s crochet costumes. And it makes me angry that it is. For a first attempt, the design and concept is so perfect it looked like she’s been doing it for a long time when in fact, this is her first try. I mean, look at that mermaid hair, simply imagining the amount of yarn needed for this specific part only makes my head ache already. And don’t get me started with the tail. The cutest mermaid tail I’ve seen, I would squeeze myself into it if I could, just warning you Trish. Just when I thought the frustration ends there, I see that littler mermaid beside the baby. Yes, we’re all guessing it right. This crochet-loving mommy made that too. JUST HOW CAN ANYONE BE THAT CREATIVE? TRISHA PLEASE TELL US!!! I love the kulambo ocean too by the way! If that’s a kulambo.

2. Pink Baby Bunny

Lying on a comfy pink fur bed is a cute pink bunny dressed baby. Just as she enjoys cuddling her current playground, I am here wishing I could cuddle, pinch, hug, kiss and play with that pink furball baby. How lucky must your parents be! That bunny embroidery matched her head to toe bunny outfit and made her look more stylishly cute too!

More photos: Pink Paradise: Bunny Baby Cless ໒( ♥ ◡ ♥ )७

3. Rainbow Princess Cless

Her mother’s creativity fueled by tender loving care and a rainbow-colored bonnet in her hair made baby Cless a real rainbow princess in this outfit. A matching rainbow footwear complemented her simple rainbow-designed t-shirt and colorful tutu as well. This baby will grow up with a good sense in fashion, I guarantee it.

4. Best gift ever!

Just when you thought you already got the perfect Christmas outfit but you’re a crochet-lover mom so you gotta accessorize it a bit!

5. My most favorite I can almost eat it concept: Watermelon Cutie Outfit

I’m not even sure if this was posted during summer but everytime I look at it, I get the summer vibe and its refreshing feels. The beanie is such a great idea beacuse the out fit seemed more garden-ish to look at with those curly straps emphasizing her cute face.

Baby Cless’ naturally refreshing aura gave justice to the intricately made watermelon summer outfit too. Including the hat which I would want to have too along with the other cute crochet costume props that she has.

And of course, hindi papakabog si mommy with her personal watermelon crocheted top as well. I loved this concept because they both rocked the outfit so effortlessly reciprocating the hardwork alotted to make it.

Korean Cosmetics Overload

Generous is an understatement for the loots that I received as VIP Editor for the launch of Korean Beauty website yeppunonnie.com at Berjaya Hotel in Makati last October 29, 2016. I can totally skip my usual makeup store visit/window shopping for an entire year for the items that I got just by attending the event. For an average makeup person like me, that is.

#yeppunonnieph launch

These are the items that I got. Hush… it’s okay, I’m envious at myself too. I keep asking myself, WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE THIS? I simply attended their event and I went home with these, FOR FREE. I must have helped an angel in disguise before or something, but nevertheless, I am very thankful to #YeppunOnniePH and #Smylee for giving me the opportunity to try all these brands. And the very rare opportunity to represent my own blog in an event. May God always bless such kind souls.

#YeppunOnniePH Loots

This unboxing is not really an actual unboxing because I have opened this box on the way home. Had I only known the humongous number of Korean cosmetics waiting for me underneath that box cover, I would have my then driver park somewhere so we can film my reaction. I almost said a curse word just to let the emotions out. ‘OMG’ would usually suffice but this time I am so overwhelmed, I needed a more… mature/tough word. I stopped mid-phrase though because I still can’t (and don’t want to) say WTF in words. Haha! But basically that’s how it went. I then made a quick look on each item. I squealed by the sight of the first eyeshadow because I never had an eyeshadow ever and I have been wanting one ever since. Not knowing that my eyeshadow fate has been written on 29th of October 2016 with not one but 3 eyeshadow palettes as my firsts.
And afterwards came all the other makeups that I have just been planning to get one by one each payday someday. The experience was like digging for gold in a pile of golds. I love each and every second of it.

To repay the generosity of #YeppunOnniePH and #Smylee, I will be updating this post for every item that I have reviewed so as to be able to help others in deciding which Korean makeup should they try. Stay tuned!
