Current Faves and Life Updates

Life Lately is all about embracing challenges and adjusting to the new normal. 
I spend most of my time improving my craft as a Live Streamer - introducing new ways and contents in my stream while learning more from my viewers, too. If you haven't gotten the chance to visit me, I would love to see your username pop in my screen. I am live daily (except Wednesday and Sunday) via the @shopee_ph app. 

Taking the time to share some of my favorite things and updates from our favorite brands. 



1. The Milk Avenue

I have a love-hate relationship with milk. I love it in my coffee or mixed with my food recipes. But it was always a challenge for me to drink it as it is. A former colleague introduced me to The Milk Avenue that offers variety of flavored milk drinks. It comes in 10 different flavors and is made with fresh milk, and all-natural flavors and fruits.

I already tried the Nutella Coffee Jelly and Salted Caramel & Cheese. They are so divine and smooth. The flavor reminds me of melted ice cream. The fruit-flavored variants like Avocado Loco and Mango Tango are equally good and rich in flavor. Each bottle is filled with milk and soft jelly and pearls that add a good texture and flavor to the drink. 

2. Cake Rush

If you are looking for one website that carries different cake varieties from Cake in a Can, Cheesecakes and Chocolate Cakes, check out Cake Rush. The site carries cakes from Conti's, Red Ribbon, Goldilocks, and local bakeshops.

Cake Rush 's interface is attractive and festive that would really entice you  to order for a whoe cake.  You can schedule the delivery in advance, or request for Same-Day Delivery. 

3. Bamboo Linen Sheets

Most of my purchases are for my room and I ordered another Bamboo Linen Bedsheets from Linens and Homes. It is soft and light-weight to the skin. It also has a temperature-regulating feature which allows me to have a better sleep at night.

 4. Clear Botaniqunie

This care kit from @clearph that I received is just so fragrant and invigorating. This makes me missed going to spas. I love that it allows me to enjoy my me-time especially that I mostly do everything in my room.

Some of the ways to upgrade our routine includes, minimizing distractions, setting the mood by ligthing candle, meditating and treating ourselves with a good shower. 

To give your scalp the natural nourishment it needs, try the all-new Clear Botanique Nourished

Infused with 100% Natural Botanical Extracts, the pioneering Liquifresh formulation is lightweight and mild, making absorption quicker than regular shampoos.

6. #WorldRightatHome and #PlanTita Kit 

We can truly re-create our world right at home as we embrace the new normal and try new things like baking, working from home, being a fitness warrior or embracing our inner #plantita. 

Globe recently hosted a #WorldRightatHome e-event where we learned more about how we can make our home space perfect for entertainment, education, or productivity. Globe also sent me this #PlanTita Kit to add to my green babies collection. I am still learning ways how to take care of each plant, and thanks to the connection at home, I can easily research, watch videos or read articles online.
