NIDO introduced the NEW and IMPROVED NIDO® PROTECTUS® 3+

Being a meticulous and OA mom, whenever I go to the grocery to buy stuff for my kids I'd always #CheckTheLabel to make sure my kids are getting the essential nutrients they need from the products. Though I hate Math, I still check the numbers pertaining to nutrients that is in the box/package. I dont understand the numbers sometimes, good thing there's this one product that makes it easy for me to understand and make sure that my kids get their age-specific nutritional needs - Nido. My mom's trusted brand since I was a kid. Yes, I'm proud to say that I grew up with this milk too! Masarap papakin! Matamis, Malasa. Masustansya! It evolved into different packaging but I believe that it is still packed with higher levels of essential nutrients made especially for children in their crucial growing-up years.

Recently Nido 3+  introduced the new and improved NIDO ® PROTECTUS ® 3+ during the Mommy Carnival event in Century City Mall. 

With just one look, moms can easily identify and learn about the unique combination of nutrients found in NIDO ® PROTECTUS ® 3+, which contains DHA, PREBIO® 3, Iron, Zinc, and other essential vitamins and minerals that help support his immunity,growth, and development. It also comes with Lactobacillus PROTECTUS ®, now with Lactobacillus rhamnosus, a different strain of probiotics that helps support digestive defenses.

The release of NIDO ® PROTECTUS ® 3+ following the launch of the Check the Label campaign is a testimony to the commitment of the brand to support moms who aspire to raise kids who are happy, healthy, and capable of reaching their full potential through their love and support. 

"We understand the ever-changing needs of mothers for their children, that's why we continuously improve our products. And in line with our advocacy to make checking food labels a habit among moms so they make smarter and healthier choices for their kids, we simplified our pack and made it more informative, " said April Apsay, Consumer Marketing Lead for NIDO® PROTECTUS® 3+.

To continuosly remind moms to #CheckTheLabel, NIDO® PROTECTUS® 3+ also recently released a catchy jingle headlined by Sarah Lahbati and son, Zion. Watch the video here.

HOPE RUN 2016 :Run for Children With Special Needs

As an autism mom, I know how hard everyday with a child with special needs is. Specially if there is no intervention to address the child's needs. I believe that early intervention is the best HOPE for the future. Early attention to improving their core behavioral symptoms of autism will give my child – and the rest of the family -several important benefits that we will not gain if we will take a wait-and-see approach until my child enters school . But these therapies mean financial predicament which not all can afford.

The brilliant team behind Hope Run 2016

This is also the reason why the organizers from Kids Journey came up with this Run for a cause: HOPE RUN 2016. They wanted to help children with special needs and their families get through and hopefully build a foundation.

Join us on December 11 at BGC and together let's wear our capes and be their heroes. 

Registration is until Nov 25 only.

Get Pampered and Stamped

Living in a tropical country certainly has a lot of perks. Perpetually sunny days, year-round airy summer fashion, and an annual healthy glow thanks to a regular dose of vitamin D.

This also means it’s nearly always sandal-season. While not necessarily a drawback, it does take a lot of work to make sure your tips and toes are perpetually ready to be on display.

This is probably the reason, on top of the need to indulge in some much needed me-time, why you frequent your favorite nail salon so much. But Nailaholics is making it a whole lot easier for you to make sure you keep your tips and toes in top shape, get pampered, and keep coming back for more.

Each visit to Nailaholics beginning November 21 until March 31 means you’re pampering yourself for a bonus little treat,” says  Lorraine Baterina.

Avail of your regular manicure and pedicure or indulge in one of Nailaholics’ signature packages and treatments and make sure that you get you Pampering Card stamped. Get five stamps and you get your sixth mani-pedi for free.

This is our way of making sure that you’re hands and feet are completely ready no matter what season, and of course, letting our loyal customers know that we appreciate them,” ends Lorraine Baterina, Brand Officer.

You'll Find Awesome Gifts at Groupon #Groupon #ad

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

Christmas is around the corner, and it's also the season of gift giving. Finding the best gift for a person can be tedious. Going to the mall to buy that gift can be equally daunting, considering all the hustle and bustle, not to mention the turtle paced traffic and how crowded that place could be.

I have a 15 year old son, he loves to listen to music via his mobile phone. Just so happened  that the earphones he's using are starting to malfunction. He keeps saying "Mom, I need new earphones."
Ding! That's gonna be my Christmas gift for him! 

Good thing I happen to know Groupon. This app literally has thousands of selections for gift ideas you could choose from! You almost do not need to think of an item to give! Just choose from the wide array of offers. The best thing is that, you can do all that without even getting out of the house! I did it using my iPhone. 😊

Well, there's an unexpected bonus, I know I'm looking for some cool earphones for my son, but I wasn't expecting a Samsung Galaxy S7 EO-EG920LWEGUS Active In-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic
to be on sale from $29.99 to $4.99! At that rate, I can buy some other extra cool stuff and make his Christmas very merry indeed! 

Samsung Galaxy S7 EO-EG920LWEGUS Active In-Ear Headphones with Remote and Mic

With Groupon, you can save on time, energy and money, not just that, but you can always find items here to make that special someone happy, heck, you can definitely find something here for yourself, too! 

Whatever it is you are looking for, Groupon Goods has it!

What do you love about Groupon?
