Praying for more partnerships, projects and events this 2018. The Lord bless and make Himself known to you increasingly!

Patrick and Cecille’s Wedding at EDSA Shangri-la Hotel

A second chance in love. I kept wiping my tears as I listened to their God-ordained story. ๐Ÿ™‚ At times, it takes a while for the Lord to answer prayers but that doesn’t mean He’s forgotten. A lot of times He needs to stretch our faith and increase our dependence on Him alone.

SAMPLE ROOM MEDIA LAUNCH

8 - Sample Room New Packaging

I have been working with Sample Room for about four years now. I met Sophie Uy (one of the founders) when we were chosen as two of the 10 Women of Confidence here in the Philippines.

WomenofConfidence

We kept in touch after that and discovered we shared the same faith. Sample Room was just starting out back then and I agreed to help them get the word out. You’re probably wondering, “Why did it take so long for Sample Room to be officially launched?”
13217329_1044702678933732_4352591042587876423_oWell number 1, it’s a start-up. The four founders Sophie Uy, Katherine Sy, Diana Ong and Nats Toh know each other from school and all have their own businesses. The whole concept of TRYVERTISING was completely new back then and it took a while for brands to actually warm up to it. With the rise of subscription boxes and the growing popularity of online reviews (which a lot of consumers now turn to before making any product purchase), brands soon realized the value of a community wherein real people can actually try out their products and give them authentic feedback about it. If I were the brand, that would actually serve me well–I get to create buzz about my product, I get real reviews and I’ll know if there are things I still need to improve.

Sample Room is also greatly beneficial to consumersย who are always on the lookout for new products. The thing is, we have to be well-aware of the fact that not all products work well with our skin type and body chemistry. Imagine purchasing an entire bottle of moisturizer that costs a fortune only to find out three days after trying it, that it’ll cause your skin to break out?ย Would you still insist on using the product just because you spent a fortune on it? I don’t think so. That’s where Sample Room comes in.

Human Nature’s First Ever SOS Coastival

13086766_10150656620149969_5140369495622816204_o

I had the wonderful privilege of hosting Human Nature’s S.O.S. Coastival which was held at San Juan, La Union. It’s been more than twoย decades since I last set foot in La Union (shame on me). I remember snippets of when I was two and running around barefoot with my cousins. My dad says I was so scared of swimming in theย ocean probably because it was unfamiliar territory. Of course, I’m good friends with the sea now! Heck, I enjoyed my last scuba diving trip!

13130882_10150656620569969_7050141419595344802_oHuman Nature brought together media friends and influencers who can help get the word out about the current state of our oceans, our animal friends and the environment as a whole. Can you believe that even if we live in the city, our daily habits affect the ocean? That’s why you have to be more mindful of the products that you use. Plugging and endorsement aside, we should make it a habit to check the labels on products.

SLS/SLES (or: sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, ammonium lauryl sulfate, ammonium laureth sulfate) are found in shampoos and soaps. Itโ€™s a skin irritant and toxic to aquatic organisms.ย Axe SLS & SLES. Switch to gentler, plant-derived cleansers.

Plastic microbeads (or: polyethylene, polypropylene, polyethylene terephthalate, polymethyl methacrylate) are found in facial scrubs and toothpaste.ย They stay up to 50 years in the environment, plus trillions of microbeads pollute our waters, get eaten by fish, and make their way up the food chain. Yes, to you and me.ย Ban the bead and scrub with love – use biodegradable exfoliants.

Oxybenzone (or: butylparaben, octinoxate, 4-methylbenzylidene camphor) is found in chemical sunscreens. Toxic to corals at the ratio of 1 drop in 6.5 Olympic-size swimming pools.ย Cease coral killing. Use physical sunscreens that contain reef-friendly zinc oxide instead.

Mineral oil (or: petroleum, petrolatum, paraffin) is found in makeup, lotions, conditioners and moisturizers.ย Itโ€™s a non-biodegradable by-product of fossil fuels, classified a carcinogen by the World Health Organization.ย Ditch mineral oil and moisturize with plant-based oils instead.

Aside from the learning sessions, attendees also joined artist AG Saรฑoย in the creation of theย 180-meter sand art which did not use any paint or cement.

There were also various booths from participating partners like Save Philippines Seas, WWF for Nature Philippines, CURMA, La Union Soul, Meg Magazine (I loved their free buko and of course, a free magazine!!), Bayani Brew and Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit. We also had our dose of exercises for the afternoon as Planet Zips‘ Paolo Soler led the poi workshop, Corey Wills took care of the yoga class while Formado Pirulito of Escola Brasileira de Capoeira stretched our muscles and challenged our coordination skills with the capoeira workshop.
