Top 4 Places to Visit in Banff

Banff is one of Canada’s most incredible national parks, offering nonstop natural beauty, notable locals, and endless entertainment and activities to attempt.  Regardless of whether you’re more of a resort or summer sport kind of person, you’ll find something that suits you perfectly.  These are the top places to visit when you’re at the very southern border of Alberta and why this park is paradise on Earth.

Lake Louise

Lake Louise could be a resort town of its own if it weren’t part of Banff.  In the summer you have the chance to boat and swim in the lake’s beautiful blue waters.  Trails are open surrounding the lake itself, and you can even take a ride to the top of the mountain to absorb the best views possible.  This area is incredibly gorgeous.

When Lake Louise is covered in a good coat of snow and ice in winter, skating opens up on the lake’s surface, and skiing opens up on the mountainsides.  You could spend a year in this area of the Banff National Park and never have two days be precisely the same.

Sunshine Village Ski Resort

This ski resort is the most recognizable part of Banff National Park.  From the endless snowy peaks and slopes to the cozy hot springs and spas, you’ll get to play and relax as much as you want.  This is a must-stay location because of the great mix of affordability and experiences, with the only way to get closer to being a local being to look at Banff homes for sale.  This ski resort has year-round attractions but shines the most in the winter.

Icefields Parkway

If you don’t love hiking but you want to take in some incredible views, a drive down the Icefields Parkway is the best way to ensure you get a great mixture of indoors and outdoors life.  There’s nothing quite like driving through this mountain range and getting to take in endless views of mountains, snow, sky, rivers, and lakes.

The only mistake some people make is getting out of their vehicles, which you shouldn’t do along this parkway unless you’re with a guide.  This park is packed to the brim with gorgeous wildlife, and it’s for the best if you don’t get too physically close to interacting with it.

Johnston Canyon

A canyon may not be what you expect to see in Banff, but the Johnston Canyon is a gorgeous trail that takes travelers down towards a river, deep into the ground itself.  Walking this trail in the summer gets you out of direct sunlight and allows you to feel the excitement of walking into the canyon itself.  Although it’s not as deep or wide as America’s Grand Canyon, there’s something so beautiful about the Johnston Canyon that it doesn’t feel like it falls short.  Visiting and walking this trail is calming, and you’ll leave feeling refreshed.

Banff is a hotspot for tourists and locals alike.  Once you visit and see everything it has to offer, you won’t want to leave ever again!

Best Christmas Gift

We live in a country where Financial Literacy has yet to be embraced by the majority. A lot of us are still trapped with the idea that putting our savings in a bank account is the way to go.

Did you know that there are a lot of options to “grow” your hard-earned money?

Malayan Insurance is one of The Leading Non-Life Insurance Co. In The Philippines today. Non-life insurance in the Philippines is often taken for granted but the good thing about Malayan is that they offer different products from motorcycle to family insurance.

I am not saying that you should invest all your hard-earned money in one Insurance company but you can always check their website and see what best fit your financial goals.

As parents, it is our obligation to ensure that our investment will replace our current income if anything unfortunate happens to us. If you haven’t availed any life insurance yet, it’s about time to contact a financial advisor. Remember that as we grow old, the risk of not being approved in a Life Insurance plan rises.

Don’t wait until you have “extra money”, invest now and give yourself and your family the Best Christmas gift ever!

Do it Right Campaign

I grew up in a Catholic environment and even studied in a Catholic school where no one talks about sex like it’s Voldemort. Sex education doesn’t seem to be a big thing here in the Philippines, some even consider it as a taboo.  Since I became a mom, I have joined a number of parenting groups on Facebook and as I observe, Filipinos are aware of Responsible parenthood or family planning. Most of them post their concerns on FB closed or secret groups because some are embarrassed to ask relatives about family planning. I do not understand why some Filipinos tend to make fun of people who buy contraceptive pills or condoms. There was a time when a photo went viral because a man holding a bouquet seems to unmindfully drop a condom while getting something from his pocket. The condom dropped near his shoe.  Majority of the comments were nasty. I feel bad for the person because who knows if he’s set to a romantic date with his wife? Maybe, one of the factors why the Philippines is still a third world country is because we fail to educate ourselves about sex. This is why we didn’t turn down the invitation to attend the Launching of Do It Right Campaign last August 16,  2019, in Makati.

11 organizations launched the campaign urging the Filipinos to show their support openly for family planning and reproductive health.  I  would like to quote FPOP Executive Director, Nandy Senoc’s words: “When youth and women are empowered, there will be no teen pregnancies, no early marriages, no unwanted pregnancies or abortions. When women are well informed, the fight against poverty is already halfway won”.

I could not think of anything better to add to these. it’s high time that we become more open about our stand about family planning and bear in mind that safe sex does not only help you prepare for your family’s future, you may also be able to save lives by being vocal.  You might be able to reach a person who’s unaware that he/she can acquire sexually transmitted disease thru unprotected sex.

If you want to know more about this campaign, please visit Do It Right’s official Facebook page: www.facebook.com/DoItRightPH we have also discussed this on the vlog.

Feel free to ask any questions or if you think we missed anything, please feel free to share your insights on the comment section.

Baby Care Plus Review + Giveaway (CLOSED)

As a first time mom,  I always keep my options open for baby essentials. I wanted to try different products in hopes of finding the perfect match for my baby’s skin. Before I gave birth, I was gifted with a set of Tupperware baby care plus that I was able to use on my baby when we got home from the hospital.

I was hesitant to use it at first because Tupperware was not known for making baby essentials. One night Chuck had a big poop explosion. Something that the wet-wipes department can’t handle. So we used the baby bath and gave Chuck a quick shower. We immediately noticed that it is really mild and left our baby with no rashes or any signs of irritation.

I personally love the  Baby Care Plus+ Bath because it smells good even after several hours. I am glad that Tupperware released a bigger size that comes with a pump for easy dispensing. It’s easier to use because I don’t have to worry about spills. Saves me money and time too! Baby Care Plus+ Bath has Lamesoft Skin Protector that forms a natural barrier around baby’s skin to protect it while gently cleansing. It’s mild formula won’t irritate your baby’s delicate skin. You’ll definitely enjoy every cuddling moment with your little one because of the mild scent that stays on your baby’s hair and body.

I must admit that Tupperware proved me wrong in doubting this product just because it is fairly new compared to the brand that we also bought for our baby (same brand that my mother used when I was a baby). I am glad I tried Baby Care Plus.

Do you want to win a package from Tupperware too?

It’s easy! Just follow the steps posted on our Instagram account.

*Prize must be claimed by the winner at any Tupperware branch nationwide. https://goo.gl/forms/KhBcTb3mCY4OAFd73

This contest is open until Sunday, October 14, 2018.

Quoting Arvin Amaro, Marketing Head of Nailaholics Nail Salon and Spa, “We Filipinos are very hardworking in any given aspect of our lives and a nation of energetic and industrious people best deserves real pampering once in a while. This year, as Nailaholics celebrates the 2nd National Pampering Day, we go deeper and dedicate this to everyone and remind them to take it slow, take it easy, zone out and relax for a while”.

Nailaholics and one of the most beloved lacquer brand in the world, O.P.I., National Pampering Day 2017 will accommodate more guests with the extension of pampering time until 1PM.  The best thing about this year’s National Pampering Day is that it will support World Vision, The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), and Save Philippine Seas.

Ian Veneracion takes on new role as advocate of a multivitamin brand

United Laboratories, Inc. (UNILAB) officially welcomes multifaceted celebrity Ian Veneracion as the newest addition to
their roster of brand ambassadors. Veneracion, who currently stars as the male lead in ABS-CBN’s primetime show ‘A
Love to Last,’ has been chosen to advocate for Conzace, the number one prescribed brand for multivitamin plus minerals
by general practitioners and dermatologists in the country.
“It is an honor and privilege to be part of the UNILAB family for its multivitamin brand, Conzace,” proclaims Veneracion
while adding, “I am grateful for this opportunity, and I strongly believe that the product can be beneficial to millions of
Filipinos as it has been beneficial to me.”

According to Conzace assistant product manager Mike Jimenez, the addition of Veneracion is a perfect match for the
brand. “Ian is the epitome of superior immunity and good looks,” he says.

Jimenez elaborates on the actor and the product’s connection. “Conzace’s clinically-proven ZACE formulation, an
acronym for Zinc, Vitamins A, C, and E, makes it the number one multivitamin and minerals product prescribed by
General Practitioners and Dermatologists. The same can be said about our brand ambassador, Ian, whose credibility
allows him to ace his craft with one successful teleserye and movie after another.”

THE FACE OF CONZACE

People born in the late ‘70s would remember Veneracion as the cute and charming Jeffrey Laperal, the son of Joey de Leon in the 1982 sitcom ‘Joey and Son.’ From then on, he went to appear in more television projects while simultaneously making films that range from comedy to drama to action. Among his most recent work is the internationally acclaimed psychological thriller, ‘Bliss,’ and a Filipino independent supernatural horror film, ‘Ilawod.’

Now at 42, Veneracion has again endeared himself to today’s generation as Engineer Antonio “Anton” Noble IV, the dashing, separated with three kids guy who falls in love with another broken soul. And of course before, as Eduardo Buenavista in the 2015 remake of ‘Pangako Sa Yo,’ the role that regained Veneracion’s fame and his career to leading man stature. And then there’s that totally different side of Veneracion that is separate from showbusiness. Apart from being an actor, he is also a painter, an athlete, a pilot, a chef, and a family man—the last being his favorite role to play.

But to be all that, Veneracion needs a multivitamin and minerals that will help him cope, not just with his busy schedule, but with the different roles that he has to play in life. “I need strong immunity as well as healthy skin and hair, I cannot afford to get sick, and look stressed—I am glad I have Conzace to give me all that and more.”

THE ZACE EFFECT

Compared to other multivitamins, Conzace has the highest levels of ZACE combined. All these elements play different roles in one’s well-being. “This unique formulation in Conzace creates a synergistic effect that is clinically proven to help boost immunity, promote healthy skin and hair, and assist in wound healing as it speeds up skin regeneration,” says Jimenez.

Veneracion, speaking from experience, explains it better: “It’s the little things that we don’t normally notice, like for example, stronger resistance against colds and flu, better and clearer skin, shinier and healthier hair. It will do amazing things; you can do more and be more for yourself, for your family, for your work without being disrupted.

“I believe that if you are healthy inside, it just comes out. It reflects physically—in your hair and in your skin. And in the line of job that I am in, it is quite important that I don’t just don’t look good but really be healthy,” Veneracion concludes.

Who is Sanicare’s First Brand Ambassador?

The Sanicare Hygiene Care Circle event happened yesterday, July 25, 2017 at The Makati Diamond Residences.

Sanicare gathered the country’s top Mommy Bloggers to talk about cleanliness and hygiene for the family. Attendees were also taught new household hacks using different Sanicare products. The full product line was introduced to everyone. It also paved way to the launching of the first ever brand ambassador for Sanicare, Bianca Gonzales – Intal.

Bianca has been a long time user of Sanicare and as what the Sanicare Marketing Director Ms. Lea Sio Pacis said, “Bianca represents the moms of today.”

Mommies got to enjoy different activities, headed by Three Mommy bloggers, Frances Sales, Shari Macainag, and Sarah Tirona.  Amongst the three booths, my favorite is the Kitchen where I learned that Sanicare’s Jumbo Kitchen Towel can actually be used as a Coffee filter.  It’s amazing how a soft Kitchen towel can be so durable even when wet.

My Top 5 Favorite Sanicare Products:

1. Disposable Toilet Seat Cover. I do not like seating in public toilets. So, instead of squatting which is also unhygienic, I always carry with me a pack of toilet seat covers.  It’s so convenient to use plus it’s biodegradable so, you can flush it in the toilet and it won’t clug!

2. Interfolded Hand Towel. I can’t leave without tissue and I do not use tissue rolls whenever I pee because I feel that some substances are being left out. Whether inside the car, our home office, kitchen and bathroom – you will always see a pack of Sanicare interfolded tissue. It comes in 1 ply 175 pulls and 2 ply 150 pulls. It’s made from 100% virgin pulp with no artificial whiteners and elemental chlorine.

3. Sanicare Baby Wipes. I am choosy when it comes to wipes. Some brands leave a sticky feeling after use unlike Sanicare. I even use it on my face especially during long travels. It’s so refreshing to use.  It’s also enriched with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E. It is also gentle because it’s alcohol and paraben free which makes it safe for everyday use.

4. Sanicare Jumbo Cotton Balls. I hate tiny cotton balls. I feel like I’m being tricked because they sure look many when packed but one ball isn’t enough to use. So, you end up using three balls.  These jumbo cotton balls are not just made for babies, you can even use it for your toner. Its size is perfect for covering more surface and area coverage.

5. Sanicare Baby Underpads. I haven’t tried this yet, but I’m adding this to my favorites because this will make every mom’s life so much better. Who likes to keep dirty underpads on their baby bags? NONE! Sanicare Baby Pads has silky soft surface that won’t irritate your baby’s skin and a leak proof barrier to contain all the mess from leaky diapers.

Check out Sanicare‘s official website for the complete list of their products.  With the new products presented to us on the Sanicare Hygiene Care Circle event, Sanicare again proved that they always make sure to meet the different needs of the local market while remaining uncompromising in its promise of providing excellent products.

Do we have mommy readers here? Join our giveaway and stand a chance to win a pack of Sanicare Baby Underpads and Sanicare large cotton buds!
