The Search Is Over

Early last June, Goldilocks billboards in key areas of the metropolis simultaneously displayed a giant 50th Anniversary celebration cake. The signature cake was truly attention-grabbing, featuring a delightfully decorated mocha cake with a number 50 candle topping it off.

Roughly a week later, however, countless people were perplexed when these cakes literally went missing,leaving a gaping cake-shaped hole hole right in the middle of the billboards. Discussions and theories flew left and right on social media, with news reports in mainstream print and television following suit. People wanted to know where the Goldilocks 50th Anniversary Cake is?

After a long search, the Goldilocks 50th Anniversary Cake has finally been found. Thousands of people looked for the missing cake, and many found it in participating Goldilocks stores all over the city. Using an automated raffle machine, Goldilocks named five winners of P 10,000 cash among those who found the cake were Resly Morgado, Joahne Pauline Adaya, Maria Elizabeth Andres, Junella B. Doliata, and Maria Camellia Cabigon. Ten more received a cash prize of P5,000 and additional five more individuals won P 1,000 worth of Goldilocks gift certificates.

All of the winners were first overwhelmed with curiosity, but ultimately had fun and are now looking forward to more amazing promos from Goldilocks.

Jeunesse Anion Zumba Fun Activity at the Marriot

I recently joined in fellow moms and lifestyle bloggers for a Zumba Party hosted by Jeunesse Anion at Marriot Hotel Manila.

Jeunesse is a well-known a brand of sanitary napkins and liners that reaps the health benefits of the special anion chip in every pad. The presence of anions (negative ions) in these pads help in:

Fighting vaginal irritations and infections
Balancing PH and hormone levels
Reducing inflammation
Protecting against germs in the air
Eliminating unwanted odor

Jeunesse Anion stays true to its advocacy – to provide sanitary pads and liners that help to do more for your wellness, by empowering women to get into the habit with practical healthy living upgrades. As a mid-year treat to all hard working moms, Regine Tolentino, the country’s “Dance Diva,” and a strong influencer in the dance fitness industry who proves that it’s one of the best ways to recharge and rejuvenate tired bodies.

Regine is a licensed Zumba® and U-Jam® Fitness instructor, and certified by the AFAA (Athletic and Fitness Association of America).
Apart from hosting, Regine is also an actress, designer, entrepreneur and a mother to two adorable children while a host for several TV shows where she teaches dance and promotes healthy lifestyle change. If you’re wondering how she does all these without getting tired, it’s simple – she just loves looking beautiful, feeling healthy, and staying fit. Dancing is Regine’s way of keeping that tip-top shape!

Exercising to music like doing Zumba has loads of physical and mental benefits including improved condition of heart and lungs, increased muscular strength and tone, while reduces risks of osteoporosis and heart attack. Joining in Zumba classes helps develop healthier bodies, helps moms become socially active, and increases emotional power. Zumba activity's mood-boosting benefits facilitates the release of endorphins!

The Jeunesse's  anion strip  is activated by moisture or friction from wearing the pads. This strip emits the Anions into the air to inhibit the survival and grown of bacteria and viruses. By suppressing the  of bacteria, Jeunesse's  anion strip eliminates odor and alleviates pains caused by painful menstrual cramps.

It is sheer happiness when anions abound!

Jeunesse Anion come in five variants to help women stay fresh and protected all day long. These are: ultra-day pad, day pad non-wing, ultra night pad, all-night, and panty liners.

You'll love being a girl even during that special time of the month with Jeunesse Anion Sanitary Napkins!

Sarah Lahbati supports NIDO® 3+ Check The Label campaign

With so many milk options available in the market today, it is best that mothers check what the nutrition labels say. The carbohydrates on nutrition facts labels can be downright confusing plus ingredients and nutritional facts on the product packaging can be misleading. More than being attracted to what is popular, mother should make sure that claims aren’t just marketing hype when shopping for milk.

Another good reason to check food labels is to identify nutrients that are unique to a brand. Not all food products like milk are created equal, so choosing one that meets your child’s needs is one of the best ways to properly nourish them. Our choice of milk has a major impact on the health of our kids. By checking the nutritional labels, moms also get to check if it meets the daily nutritional requirements of children, especially during their crucial growing-up years.

NIDO 3+ comes with with Lactobacillus PROTECTUS®

Developed by the best of NestlĂ© Research, NIDO® 3+ is the only milk brand with Lactobacillus PROTECTUS®. These live good bacteria maintain the balance of good and bad bacteria in the gut, which, in turn, helps strengthen the immune system.

This unique probiotic can be found in every glass of NIDO® 3+ along with other essential nutrients such as Prebio® 3, indigestible fibers that serve as food for good bacteria to grow and survive; DHA, ALA, LA, and taurine to support proper brain structure; and high levels of vitamins A, D, calcium, and zinc to support overall growth and development.

Proud mom Sarah Lahbati Checks the Label

Having experienced the same challenge when it was time for her to choose a growing-up milk for Zion when he turned three, the first-time mom, Sarah Lahbati,   learned that the best thing to do is to research and check food labels.  In so  doing, Sarah is assured that she made the right choice with NIDO® 3+.

Brand ambassadress Sarah Lahbati loves NIDO for being honest – to provide a well-balanced diet to help meet the nutritional needs of toddlers, with essential vitamins and minerals which support a child’s healthy growth, development and immune system.

Lahbati began checking the labels when she was pregnant. However, she believes it should start as early as possible – pregnant or not. “When I was pregnant, I became more aware because I wanted to give my baby (Zion) the other nutrients he needed while he was still inside me,” she said.

Lahbati said she always checks everything, especially to check what is in the food. Now that she is a mom, she ensures that what Zion get is healthy and good,

“There is so much information going around, so much advice from your mom, mother-in-law, sister and auntie… and it’s always like that especially when you are a first time mom,” Sarah related.

Sarah Lahbati loves NIDO for being honest – to provide a well-balanced diet to help meet the nutritional needs of toddlers, with essential vitamins and minerals which support a child’s healthy growth, development and immune system.

Everyone will have opinions on what is best for your child and insist that they are right and everyone else is wrong. How do you really know what to believe? Just #CheckMoMuna and #CheckTheLabel!
