GOD WROTE OUR LOVE STORY

Yadah Review

Once upon a time in 2017, I met the Yadah crew from Korea at the Philbeauty fair. After an exchange of emails, they sent me products and I went on to try them out so I can share how they performed. Yadah products can be ordered online but they also have some available at the Beauty Bar.

Watch the video to see my review of Yadah’s Anti Trouble Bubble Cleanser, Anti-T Red Zero Concealer, Revitalizing Jelly Pack and the Velvet Mood Lip Colors in Rosy Brown and Burgundy.

PEAK-SEASON THANK YOU VIDEO | Ingrid Nieto Vlogs

It was a bit hard to choose and fit tons of footage in under 5 minutes! But all in all, I would like to just thank my dear friends, clients, couples, brands, coordinators and organizers for a fun peak season in the midst of reading assignments and papers for my MA. Praying for more partnerships, projects and events this 2018. The Lord bless and make Himself known to you increasingly!
Love, your quirky vlogger/host, Ingrid.

Greens, Juice Bar and Meatless Options at Hillside Cafe

Adding this to my list of happy, vegan-friendly restaurants that I must frequent! Since I went on a lifestyle and diet adjustment in August of this year, one of the challenges (aside from strictly preparing my own meals) was finding easily-accessible restaurants that served plant-based, organic food.

Go Salads is good but my tastebuds started looking for something different, specially now that I’ve tried almost everything on their menu. To be fair to Go Salads though, I’d say it’s my new “fast food” now because when you walk into their store or stall, they get to prepare your salad, sandwich or green smoothie in less than 15 minutes.

Back to Hillside Cafe and Juice Bar.

The only branch they have presently is at Mo. Ignacia, which is surprisingly just near the seminary I go to. I like that the place isn’t so huge. It’s very quaint, perfect for meetings, dates and catch-up sessions. Their salad servings are huge, good enough for two, I would say but if you’re a vegetable monster like me, I’m sure you can consume the entire plate by yourself. I ordered the Superfood Salad (which has kale, mixed greens, quinoa, beets, carrots, malunggay flakes and a vinaigrette dressing) and the Hillside Greens Smoothie (which has spinach, moringa, mango, banana, chia seeds, coconut meat and coconut water). Sophie and Kath ordered the Aglio Olio Pasta and the Tropical Smoothie. Watch the video below and do visit Hillside Cafe! πŸ˜€

VLOG: THIS IS WHAT A FULL DAY IN CHURCH LOOKS LIKE

Saturday is usually ministry day for me, except if I have trips, workshops to attend/teach or events to host. Our leaders’ meeting for our Bible Study Fellowship evening women’s class in Ortigas is held Saturday mornings at 6:30. We prepare for class night, have separate leadership development sessions and we get to engage in God’s Word by sharing in the discussion questions and homiletics.

*Thanks to my fellow GL Riva for taking and sharing these photos!

For this particular Saturday, we had our leaders’ fellowship (we do this once a month) so we had time to catch-up and enjoy delicious finger food. πŸ™‚

Following immediately was the launch of S.H.E., the support group for single young professional women in GCF. We invited blogger, speaker and homeschooling advocate Joy Tan-chi Mendoza to speak. She happens to be the niece of Tita Mina, one of the core members of the GCF Ortigas Women’s Ministry team. She brought along all five of her children, who she says are always with her and Edric (her husband) whenever they have speaking engagements.

Joy spoke on Identity: The P’s of God’s Best Life for You (Colossians 3:1-17):
1) Know your Purpose
2) Obey His Principles
3) Order Your Priorities
4) Elevate Him with Your Pursuits and Passions
5) Discover His Pleasure and Peace

Sorry if the bullet points are bitin. I tried to take down notes but I was busy making sure the camera was running well and we were still within the allotted time. The ladies looked forward to the QandA session where Joy answered questions about singlehood, homeschooling her kids, growing up, her background, married life and faith. Watch the VLOG below for more!

After the launch, I had a bit of a break so I changed to more comfy clothes. Youth worship followed at 5pm and then we also had the Youth Leaders Mentoring Session facilitated by Kuya Ave Gaspar. He taught us how to use the Precepts material for our discipleship meetings. Precepts is in-depth Bible study which challenges you to delve deep into God’s Word without the use of commentaries. You focus only on the Bible and let it speak to you as you break down the passages and do word studies.

I realized I’ve already written too much. πŸ™‚ Go watch the VLOG below and make sure you SUBSCRIBE and give it a thumbs up! Thanks and God bless you!
