Best Things in Life are Free - from Animetric's World

The review on the Pevonia Botanica Dry Oil Body Moisturizer was good enough to make me buy one for myself, however, being the frugal girl that i am, budget is my main concern..hehehe... So when i read that she's givin away samples, i'm ecstatic!!! I'm trying my luck here..

Why do i need the Pevonia Botanica Spa-At-Home Essentials Pack?    It's embarrassing really, to tell it here, but i have to admit it, I AM STRESSED! as in... at work, at home. I can't concentrate on anything anymore... and i feel, this is not me... I have been assigned on a project lately and with a limited deadline and resources, so i stayed at work late every day, seldom see my boys awake at home.... I really really really need that sure my hubby would be willing to give me that free of service, but even better if with the Pevonia Botanica Spa-At-Home Essentials Pack.... 

With no time and budget to go to expensive Spas to treat myself, i am really really praying that i win this pack.  I'm sure, this will clearly clear my mind and be able to focus...

You may also try your luck here...

Pevonia Botanica Dry Oil Body Moisturizer + win P5k worth of products! 

One thing the most luxurious spas in the Philippines have in common is the fact that they use Pevonia Botanica products for their treatments. Some of those establishments are Quan Spa @ Marriott Manila, The Spa, Suriya Spa... just to name a few. In fact I remember my therapist using Pevonia products when I had a seaweed wrap at Quan Spa.

Pevonia Dry Oil Body MoisturizerAnyhow, Pevonia Botanica let me take home my own bottle of Pevonia Botanica Dry Oil Body Moisturizer to try. I'm not a lotion person although I follow a skincare regimen for my face like a religion every single day. I guess I don't like the idea and the feeling of layering on something thick and creamy all over my body especially since it's so hot and humid this summer.

Pevonia Dry Oil Body MoisturizerAh but Pevonia Dry Oil Body Moisturizer is different. For starters it comes in spray form.

Pevonia Dry Oil Body MoisturizerI was alarmed by how shiny it was when I first sprayed it on. It's still oil after all. But the thing is, when you spread it all over the skin surface it's absorbed very quickly.

Pevonia Dry Oil Body MoisturizerAfter a few moments of massaging Pevonia Dry Oil Body Moisturizer into the skin, you will be amazed at how silky smooth it feels. There's no sticky or greasy sensation. It smells so good too since it's imbued with the relaxing scent of lavender and chamomile -- perfect for bedtime! I don't exaggerate when I say this is the ultimate in skin hydration. A bottle costs P3,120.

Pevonia Botanica At Home Spa Essentials PackNow we come to the second and most awaited part of my post, hehe. See that box above? It's the Pevonia Botanica Spa-At-Home Essentials Pack. It contains everything you need to have a luxury spa experience in the comfort of your own home. Since I want to share the Pevonia Botanica experience with my dear readers, I've decided to give it away.

Pevonia Botanica At Home Spa Essentials PackAll the products are stored inside the white Pevonia skincare pouch so you can tote them along anytime, anywhere.

Pevonia Botanica At Home Spa Essentials PackEach kit contains:
  • Pevonia Lavender Votive Candle
  • Pevonia Silky Skin Body Scrub
  • Pevonia "Anti-Stress" Bath Salts

You're going to feel so calm and relaxed plus have the benefit of skin that feels like a million dollars with the Pevonia Botanica Spa-At-Home Essentials Pack. The set retails for P5,190.

My Bday Give-away!

Hi guys! A month from now, I’ll be celebrating my birthday and as a treat to all my followers and site visitors, I’d like to launch a contest here on my site. And I’m giving away…

Yup, a hundred dollars will be given away to the lucky winner! (The sponsor will be disclosed later). The amount will go straight to your bank account! For Philippine residents, the equivalent amount in pesos will be remitted.
So are you now excited to know the contest mechanics? Here it goes…
1.  The contest is open to anyone, as long as you have your own blog site. Participants should be at least 18 years old. A bank account will be necessary, but the details will not be taken from the participant until he/she is declared the winner.
2.  Point-system is going to be used for this contest. Each participants will given points for each site activity.
3.  5 points are given if you post about this contest on your site and invite your friends. If you have multiple blog sites, each post will be given five points. I need to know that you own several sites so the points would collect under one name only. You can mention that on your posts.

Actually, this is the first time I am doing a contest on my blog and I am not sure if I there are rules out there that I might be violating, or I should consider. I just thought that this is just for fun, and there’s no advertisements or products involved, so I guess there’s nothing wrong with this. But just in case, I need to know something, please email me at Questions will be entertained as well. Any feed backs will be highly appreciated!

My Kind of Dad had a contest to be posted on their Father's day issue.. and this is my entry.. i hope i win...

My Kind of Dad

When mom left us when i was still 3, and my 2 other siblings, both boys, were 2 & 1 to work abroad, my father was the one who took care of us for almost 25 years. Now i have a family of my own and he still took care of me and my family.  My dad had a Mass Comm degree then, but he chose to settle in the province and
be a farmer, to take care of the Land and secure it for his children. When i was old enough to understand things, i hear my father cry because he knows he cannot give us what we always wanted, but he doesn't know, is that, he is all we need.
Because of him, we had valued anything we had. I want my father to have a break from taking care of us, and let us take care of him this time,that's why i want to give him the Feast for the Family man c/o Robinsons Supermarket. He really really deserves it.

I love you dad!  This one's for you....

Mommy Duty -- Menu Planner for May to June 4

One of my chores as a mother is my weekly menu planning. And i've read that this is such a hot topic among mothers. So since i'm religiously doin' this every Saturday morning for my family, might as well post it here, so it can help other moms as well..

This is part of my family savings plan. Every payday, i set aside P2000 for the food, P1000 for the groceries... AND I STICK TO IT, as much as i can.

I have recently heard that i have to do away from meat and more on vegetable. If i have to eat meat, should be chicken or fish. So this menu was inspired by that.

I will try to post upcoming menu whenever my schedule permits. At first i was hesitant, coz the whole world will know how "kuripot" i am... but it may help others also...and that's what matters..

And also, i want to remember doing things for my family, when im already old and cant remember it. hehehe...

This can also be my reference, when i'm doing my planning and i ran out of ideas for my menu... 

So...Till next menu planning...
