"You Only Live Once", a phrase I usually hear these days, a short phrase that gives you the meaning to enjoy life to the fullest.

Novelina Skincare Products with Snail Serum Review

Image
Skin is the largest organ of the body and this is the part that is always exposed to pollutants and stress. Not all products have compounds or have ingredients that can shield our skin from harmful radicals that can cause a long-term damage to our skin. 

Aside from everyday protection that our skin needs, your skin can also be sensitive like mine. I've tried using different brands of skincare products but I ended up having rashes and severe breakouts. This is one of the major reason why I only buy the smallest available size of skincare products. Until last week I was still looking for the right product that won't irritate my skin or have any complication. 
A friend of mine introduced this new brand of skincare product that is perfect for my age, the Novelina. I'm trying this product for a week now.


Novelina High-Potency Anti-Aging Cream & Skin Lightener
This product is expertly formulated as an age-defying solution, it also has a SNAIL SERUM which is one of the well-k…

Crave Healthy, Nutritious Snack for Pregnant Women

Image
As they say, what you eat is what you are, but when you are pregnant, we should only choose and eat nutritiously for you and for your child's early development.

With this being said, even if we really wanted to give in to those cravings for our favorite snacks, we instead turn to healthy alternatives which most of the time is not what we want or does not taste good.
so we usually say goodbye to most foods and so as our favorite "Chips" and honestly that also made me sad since I really love chips, so when I was pregnant with my little Princess, this has been out of my list and so as a lot of foods that I usually love.

Recently I was able to stumble into this snack which they call "Crave Healthy". A chip made for moms-to-be, yes you heard it right, you can have chips without the worry that this may be unhealthy for you and your child. How I wish they had these when I was pregnant.


Crave Healthy is the first snack product here in the Philippines especially design…
