Shopwise is now on Honestbee!

I love grocery shopping and I've always found the experience enjoyable. But to be honest I hate going out during the holiday season because there are people everywhere. 😕 Thank God for online shopping! I've bought a couple of Christmas gifts online and they've saved me so much time and effort. Now, we can also do grocery shopping online because there's Honestbee!


The first Christmas basket to arrive our home was this hefty and pretty one from Shopwise! Now that I'm a tita, gifts like this actually excite me because I love food and making pasta, and with Christmas baskets, there's almost always spaghetti in it. 😍


Did you guys know that you can now have your groceries from Shopwise delivered straight to your doorstep? You can do this via the Honestbee app or website.


Shopwise has a really nice selection of imported goods such as Sun Harvest and Papa Alfredo. What's nice is that the prices in the app/website are the same as the actual store.


The app has a neat interface so it's very user-friendly. You get free delivery for grocery purchases above P3,000 from Shopwise. If you're planning to give Christmas baskets as gifts, you can also conveniently do so at the Shopwise Christmas Store, with free delivery for purchases above P2,500. Super convenient!

Download the Honestbee app on Android or iOS.

Love,
Helen

My Althea Korea Wish List for Christmas

My friends tell me it's SO DIFFICULT to find me a Christmas gift because I seem to have everything, and I think it's because I get sent a lot of beauty products my way and I don't want things all the time. But I'll be an angel and help them with my Althea Korea wish list! 😉 You can see here my penchant for cute sets. Hihi!



If you haven't gotten this Laneige set yet, well you should! It contains 3 mini pots (with 25ml) each of their best-selling sleeping masks plus samples. 💙 Super excited for that Lavender variant because sometimes it's hard for me to fall asleep.



This one's said to be a dupe for SKII Facial Treatment Essence. Shhh! 🙊 We all know how pricey SKII is, so hooray for dupes!


Because I'm not getting any younger and prevention is always better than cure. This serum is made for ages 20-50, and can erase signs of tiredness as you sleep. SOLD!

5. belif The True Cream - Aqua bomb (P1,930)


This one's made for my oily but dehydrated skin as it's an oil-free and lightweight gel-cream. Excited to try this!!!

6. COSRX Centella Blemish Cream (P980)


Everyone is raving about how effective Centella Asiatica is as a healing ingredient, and this one's perfect for days when you're breaking out. This moisturizer soothes redness and irritations, while providing hydration without causing even more skin problems. Basically, you cannot go wrong with this one.



I remember vividly when Missha first landed in the Philippines, this one was priced at over P1,000. It gave me an impression that this was a pricey brand, but lo and behold, Althea came and sold it at a fair price! I've used up a tube in Shade #21, but I might just get Shade #23 next time because it's seems to be a closer match for my skin.



How can anyone not be enticed with how cute and functional this tiny cube is?! It contains 4 shades of eyeshadow and 1 blush and this is what I will bring with me during travels. My top pick is All About Coral!

8. peripera Mini-mini Peppy's carrier (P1,170)


Another round of gushing over how cute this is!!! Althea, why you do this to me? 😍 This mini suitcase contains Ink The Velvet, Ink The Airy Velvet, Vivid Tint Water, Ink Concealer, Multi Shadowing - all deluxe-sized. Super cute!!!



With three shades of contour, this one's so versatile! You can go from subtle to extra effortlessly. It's also not too warm or orange-y, so it looks very natural.



For that time of the month! This warm pack is so convenient, I no longer have to improvise with a hot bottle at work because I can just stick it under my clothes and soothe period cramps. Also, I have 5 sisters, so this pack will disappear in no time. 😝

How about you, what's on your Althea Korea wish list? Get 20% off your first purchase at Althea. Shipping is free for orders above P999! 💖

Love,
Helen

What's Inside the CBTL 2019 Giving Journal

I had my first The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Giving Journal in 2017. It has been my planner of choice since then! I'm loving the simplicity, the support for Real Life Foundation's scholars, and most especially the Christian values it promotes.

(Feel free to backread my CBTL Giving Journal features for 2018 and 2017.)

Say hello to my pretty purple CBTL tumbler & journal!


The Giving Journal for 2019 comes in 4 different covers, and my sister said I got the best one! I think so, too. 👍


As soon as you open the planner, these inspiring words will greet you on the first page. This one made me smile! 😊


While I'm nowhere near artist creative, but I am inspired by this Giving Tree. I actually want to paint on it. I hope to go back to my church ministry next year. It's one item I'll put on my Giving Tree.

Annual view

Monthly cover


Each month, you have a space to reflect and track your growth in different aspects of your life. I like this part! Not all planners have it this meaningful.

Monthly view

Weekly view - clean pages!

Application 🙏

What a beautiful planner! Among all, I think the 2019 edition is the best one CBTL has released so far.

The planner also comes with 12 monthly coupons! Check them out here:





I like the P100 for a Dark Chocolate Chip Ice Blended, Buy 1 Take 1 on any Ice Blended, and Buy 1 Take 1 on any Tea Latte coupons the most.

On a side note, I love African Sunrise Tea Latte so much I have to share this (not so) secret with you. You can make a DIY version of it at home! Just buy an African Sunrise Tin (P595 with 20 tea bags) plus the French Deluxe Vanilla Powder (P399)! I'm so happy! I will actually buy a backup for the powder since it's a holiday item which means limited edition.


Last but not least, the 2019 Giving Journal comes with these cute stickers! 😍

So happy with this planner. My heart is full. Thank you, CBTL! 💜

Love,
Helen

Get in shape during the Holiday season with Taiwan Excellence premium-grade gym gear

For Filipinos, the holiday season is a time of festivities, parties, and wonderful reunions with family and friends. This can make keeping up a consistent gym schedule tough. Fortunately, the Taiwan Excellence is introducing its state-of-the-art exercise equipment to tone and buff up during this frenetic time.

This sophisticated stationary bicycle has an ergonomic design, and provides an easy step-through access. It also has an Exact Force feature to let fitness enthusiasts adjust the resistance of the pedal depending on his stamina.

Moreover, the Verge X20 makes biking more exciting as it is equipped with Kinetic Pro X wheels. This rubber hoop can strengthen muscles and improve aerodynamics to make you go faster.

#EnchantedByNature: The Body Shop Christmas Gifts

And just like that, it's already December! 🎄 Only 24 days before Christmas, have you started gift shopping yet?

One of my favorite places to scout for good gifts is The Body Shop. Just last night, my sisters and I were fixing stuff for our weekend garage sale earlier, and I was able to unearth an old The Body Shop paper bag from over a decade ago AKA my best friend's Christmas gift to me way back in college. 💖


Be Enchanted by Nature this Christmas and give something back with every purchase at The Body Shop. Every purchase, no matter how big or small, will help protect and re-wild over 10 million square meters of forest in England and Armenia. With your help, The Body Shop is supporting the World Land Trust and Woodland Trust as part of their World Bio-Bridges Mission. "Bio-bridges" are restored wildlife corridors in damaged landscapes that help endangered species to reconnect, breed and thrive again. By protecting these forests and their precious wildlife, they can continue to enchant future generations with their revitalizing beauty and biodiversity.

Let's check out The Body Shop's holiday products!

The Body Shop Berry Bon Bon Hand Cream (Buy 1 Get 1 @ P375*)
The Body Shop Berry Bon Bon Shower Gel (Buy 1 Get 1 @ P500*)

Every year, I look forward to The Body Shop's special edition bath and body care range. This year has 3 sweet variants: Berry Bon Bon (juicy Cranberry is ALWAYS present this time of the year), Peppermint Candy Cane (AKA my dream come true), and Vanilla Marshmallow (sweet and creamy, even better than last year's Vanilla Chai).

Vanilla Marshmallow & Peppermint Candy Cane Bath Bombs (Buy 1 Get 1 at P195*)

*If you have a Love Your Body card, SM Advantage card, or BDO Rewards card, you can get the special edition bath and body range at Buy 1 Get 1! 💚

White Musk Mist & Shower Duo (P895)
This one's sulit because the original price of the White Musk Fragrance Mist alone is already P995.

British Rose Sampler Treats (P350)
Also available in Moringa, Strawberry, Satsuma, Shea

Spa of the World Selections - Firming (P1,095)
Also available in Relaxing. This one comes in a cardboard box.

Olivia the Owl (P1,495 -> P1,196)
Olivia seriously smells so good. The strong coconut and strawberry scent permeates through the metal coin bank, and it's an intoxicatingly good blend. Such feel good scents! I'm gifting this cutie to my BFF. 💖

And into the forest I go, to lose my mind & find my soul
John Mur

Carlos the Caterpillar Body Washer (P395)
He's huge and stretchy! The kids are sure to find this one funny. Imagine all the bubbles this one can make with just a small drop of shower gel. 👌


Last weekend, The Body Shop had a FLASH SALE - up to 50% off! Dawn and I had been meaning to shop together so we could share the Buy 1 Get 1, and last weekend was the perfect time.

Unintentional twinning moment! 😍 Friends talaga kami.

Haul 💕

We shared the Buy 1 Get 1 on the special holiday items so my Peppermint Candy Cane Shower Gel ended up just being P250, while the Peppermint Candy Cane Body Butter was just P497.50. During the flash sale, I was able to buy my sister's birthday gift - a Moringa Body Mist at 50% off - so from P645 to P322.50! 💛 The savings are real. 🤑💰


More cute holiday stuff AKA mental notes on what to get next time. The tiny 50ml body butter tubs are too cute! Since I already have a big tub of Peppermint Candy Cane Body Butter, I'm eyeing the Enchanted Body Butter trio with Almond Milk & Honey, Mango, and Coconut. What a delicious set!


Last but not the least, I have to share this DEAL, I mean STEAL. P1,495 for 10 hand creams, so each hand cream goes down to P149.50! ✋ Regular price of each hand cream is P250. One year supply of hand cream, or you can also give this as individual gifts! 💝

There are more holiday items and gift sets in store, so make sure to visit your nearest The Body Shop store this holiday season! Like The Body Shop on Facebook, and follow @thebodyshopph on Instagram for more information.

Love,
Helen
