Hot! The Almond Milk and Honey Body Range at The Body Shop

Make peace with sensitive skin with The Body Shop’s new Almond Milk & Honey bath and skin care range. Enriched with Community Trade almond oil from the Alicante region of Spain, and Community Trade honey from the UNESCO Sheka rainforest in Ethiopia, this caring new range is as kind to the environment as it is your skin.

Body Shop’s Almond oil comes from almond nuts grown by expert farmers in the Alicante region of Spain. To collect the precious honey sourced from the Sheka rainforest biosphere reserve, The Body Shop works with the “bee whisperers” of Beza Mar, a group dedicated to improving the livelihood of Ethiopian beekeeping communities and maintaining their traditional, natural way of working with the bees. This helps support the sustainable use of the forest by providing a steady income to local people who might otherwise be forced to agriculture that could lead to deforestation.

Alongside with its campaign “Make love not war with sensitive skin”, The Body Shop also wants people to embrace sensitivity, to show kindness and empathy to all the sensitive issues seen in social media.

 

Made for sensitively dry skin, The Body Shop’s new range starts from bath essentials such as the Almond Milk & Honey Cleansing Bar, Gently Exfoliating Cream Body Scrub, Bath Milk, and Shower Cream.  There are also products for your after-bath skin care routine- the Almond Milk & Honey Body Lotion, Soothing & Restoring Body Butter, and the Calming & Protecting Hand Cream.

The Body Shop now accepts SM Advantage Card for points earning and redemption, SM and Sodexo premium pass in all The Body Shop stores nationwide.

My Two words for this year: Courage and Influence

My two words for the year, after much prayers, are COURAGE and INFLUENCE.

COURAGE. I feel in my heart that this year is the year to do things that I want to do.  To not be limited by fears, worries and concerns but to live, ever joyfully and enjoy the blessings God has given me.  Courage to smile freely, explore the world and live my OWN adventure and not someone else’s. Have the guts to follow my dream and follow through on my first step,  To keep moving despite self-doubt and harmful words – words that tear down dreams and fragile ideas and choose deliberately to heed Words that build, connect and strengthen

INFLUENCE.  We are all created to shine and not be embarrassed by our talents, our vulnerability, our open hearts.   I believe that we are born not to live in the shadows, but to be a bright light reflecting the beauty of God, who made us wonderfully and fearfully with HIs loving hands.  I cannot count how many times I have been bashful and shy – shy of my talents, my thoughts, shy to raise my hand for a second longer. We are here to live our lives and touch others in ways that are subtle and loud.  We have to share beauty and love with our  minds, our hearts and thoughts through words, pictures, actions, writing… freely,  for keeping them would be a disservice to the world we live in.  Shy no more, but brave and living a life with spotlights for all people to see, and hopefully for others to praise God by seeing how we live and touch others as they, in turn, affect people around them, beautifully.

What about you?  What are your words for this year?

SM Pet Park: Mall experience for our furry friends!

For the first time ever, SM Supermalls will build a Pet Park in SM City Taytay  to bring happiness to pet owners and extend a one-of-a kind mall experience to our furry friends!  The ground breaking ceremony was held last Saturday, March 25,  at SM City Taytay’s BPO – open parking area and was graced by SM City Taytay Mall Manager, Ms. Maureen Fernandez (far left),  Doggie’s Choice owners, adorable Diku (Doggie’s choice mascot) and Philippine pet fashion icon Ms. Bernie Alfonso of Doodles Paw Couture (3rd from left. With them are pet owners with their cute puppies.

No need for pet owners to travel so many miles (not to mention be stuck in traffic)  to visit a pet park in Eastwood, Greenhills or Tiendesitas,  Now, they can enjoy a place where their “fur babies” are welcome and can run and play alongside their friends.

Two months from now, I imagine seeing happy people,  laughters in the air as happy puppies run and jump and dance around and around under a bright sky.

Diku – Doggie’s  Choice mascot stars the groundbreaking event.

May this be the first of many pet parks to be built by SM.  They truly got it all for us and these little four-legged ones.
