On Clothes and Confidence: Electrolux Fashion Care

We grew up having limited clothes. It’s the least concern my mother would consider. Shopping for clothes is not a priority for my parents who have six kids to feed and send to school. So when a situation calls for new clothes or dress like school activity, birthdays or Christmas seasons, going to a department store was a bliss. I remember I made my parents bleed just so they can buy me a CAT uniform for a school activity (good thing that we had a neighbor’s daughter who just graduated on that same school and she sold or gave (I don’t remember) her uniform to me). Hand-me-down clothes from cousins was a treasure worth to keep. I remember receiving them during Christmas and would value them so they’ll last long. The husband also values clothes too. He grow using hand-me-down clothes and realized the need to buy clothes only when it calls for it like if it no longer fits or if its already torn and that torn can no longer be fixed from sewing it.

With this experience, we seldom shop clothes for kids too hoping they’ll value their clothes even if it is limited. But that doesn’t mean their dressing looks are limited, in fact they have the confidence to show and here are the reasons why:

1. Get their approval
– Of course! Buying kid’s clothes needs kid’s opinion. But that doesn’t mean they get what they want too. Factors are considered – is the price within the budget? is it durable? will it last longer? is it useful?

2. Designs and Colors matter
– Kids love to wear clothes of their favorite superhero or colors. They have the confidence to flaunt what they wore.

3. Comfortable to wear
– Kids love to explore here and there so they need clothing that gives them limitless activities.

4. Proper Care
– I prefer to hand wash our favorite selected clothes. For us, hand-washing is gentle and thorough. But being a working mom, its hard to consume more time washing clothes considering there are other chores that needs to tend aside from laundry. We don’t have a househelp thus we spend our Saturdays doing the laundry. I don’t want to spend my weekend doing the washing but I don’t want to ruin our limited clothes either. That’s why I had my eye on Electrolux Washing Machines because they have a unique way of caring our favorite clothes, they do Electrolux Fashion Care.

As what Rajo Laurel said, “Electrolux UltimateCare Washing Machine takes care of the clothes’ color and fabric. Laundry is not just about washing the clothes to get it clean but also taking care of the clothes to last longer.” This very much suits our family well since we seldom buy clothes, instead want to enjoy the clothes on an extended time until it no longer fits :D. Would it amazing if these clothes will still look as good as new when handed down to next younger generation.

“From everyday items to delicate designer pieces, clothes will retain their softness, shape and colour with new UltraMix™ technology.  Also, Electrolux UltraMix™ Technology delivers an exceptional deep clean even at 30°C, keeping your clothes vibrant and newer for longer.

Plus, Electrolux has Load Sensor™ technology hat automatically senses load weight, determines optimal washing time, water and detergent while guaranteeing maximum energy efficiency.” Sounds good isn’t it :)

Having the Electrolux Washing Machines gives me an assurance that clothes are gently care and I’m sure it will help me save my laundry time thus, more time with family. Someday :)

Licealiz Campaigns Kilusang Kontra Kuto

Licealiz Campaign Kilusang Kontra Kuto Banner

I admit me and my sisters had kutos (headlice) during my childhood days. My mama would not let us play outside if she can’t comb out those lice and nits (eggs). Imagine getting those nits from your hair strand, she would get it! She would diligently look for those lice and prick it on my head with such force it makes you whimper. She’ll do this laborious task to us girls (no wonder her eyes got marred). Music to my ears if I hear her calling my sister’s name — that means its not my kutuhan session for the day. When my mama is not available and if in the mood, we also have those kutuhan session between sisters that we sometimes end up challenging each other on whose got the most lice or nits.

Now its my turn to check my daughter’s hair. Yes, she has kuto even if she washes her hair everyday. Like my mom, I apply the traditional method of removing the lice –> nitpicking or manually removing the lice and nit and using special comb for the lice. I can only check her hair on weekends and with interaction of her classmates on schooldays and with my conventional method, there’s definitely no guarantee that her lice are totally eliminated.

Nowadays, there are prescriptions that can help get rid of lice but because I’m afraid of the chemicals used that may possibly affect the children, I hesitated. Thankfully, Lamoiyan Corporation is here for Licealiz campaign for Nationwide Oplan Alis Kuto as part of Kilusang Kontra Kuto advocacy in the effort to educate the public on lice infestation issues. Lamoiyan Corporation has Licealiz Head Lice Treatment Shampoo that is non-toxic and convince me to use Licealiz. Together with Department of Education and Philippine Dermatological Society, Lamoiyan Corporation travels to different schools and barangays all over the country to hold shampooing programs and lectures for students and their parents.

As what  Lamoiyan Corporation Marketing Director Bing Cavestany said, “We want to remove the stigma associated with having kuto by educating communities on lice infestation issues. We want to drive home the message that everyone can be potentially infested by kuto, that it’s not something to be ashamed about, and definitely not something to ridicule others for. We also hope to encourage these communities to unite and take action to solve this public health problem together.

Mommy Bloggers Philippines Cebu Mommies was invited to witness the Visayas kickoff last Friday, September 27, 2017 at Guadalupe Elementary School (which was interrupted by the sudden flooding  from heavy downpour). They will visit more schools around Cebu province and will be in Mindanao in the upcoming days with the hope for a headlice-free country in the future.

A discussion about headlice infestation, treatment and prevention was made at Zubuchon Restaurant at Escario St., Cebu City by Philippine Dermatological Society Rep, Lamoiyan Corporation Reps, ComCo Southeast Team and Licealiz Team.

  • Lice stuck in comb can survived for three days.
  • Female head lice can lay as much as 100 eggs. Imagine the spread.
  • Head lice has six legs. They can crawl fast but cannot jump nor fly.
  • Avoid sharing personal hair accessories, comb, hairbrush, pillows, towels or caps to avoid being infected.

Create a Healthy Home with Electrolux

As the old saying goes, “health is wealth” and as the rainy season begins, moms needs to take even more care to ensure that their homes are healthy havens for their family. That is why leading home appliance brand Electrolux shared tips on how mothers can make their homes an #ElectroluxHealthyHome at the recently held Create a Healthy Home event at Circa 1900 in Cebu City.

#ElectroluxHealthyHome 1

Electrolux Healthy Home event host Jude Bacalso with Founder of Mommy Mundo Janice Villanueva and MagTV hosts Reena Tan and Blinky De Leon, accompanied by her mother Angie exchange tips and home hacks to create an #ElectroluxHealthyHome.

Celebrity guests Reena Malinao-Tan and Blinky de Leon and her mom, Angeles de Leon-Cornejo, shared some of their tips for moms on how to create homes that promote wellness.

“Wellness for me is about attaining balance in everything: work and life, food, daily activities, relationships. Wellness is a journey that must be enjoyed by every member of the family,” Malinao-Tan.

“First is making sure we have a clean and relaxing place to live in. With a toddler in the house, I live by the tip ‘less is more’. My husband and son have allergies, so maintaining a good quality of air, free from dust is on top of the list. I’m also an advocate of natural and mild cleaning agents,” she elaborated.”

When it comes to eating, she said, “I go by balanced eating. In our fast-paced lives, making sure we go by the food pyramid is a challenge. It really helps to have meal planning, talking to the members of the family on the meals to prepare for a certain time. That way, we prevent ourselves from resorting to instant food or fried dishes.”

Malinao-Tan also talked about the importance of quality time with the family, making sure that they shared meals together, enjoy a regular day out (from a simple playhouse date with her little one to out-of-town adventures) and even gadget-free time in a day for them to enjoy each other’s company and shares stories of the day.

Meanwhile Angeles de Leon-Cornejo talked about the importance of fitness. “I am a fitness enthusiast. I have engaged my children to do the same for I am a strong believer of how exercise benefits the human body. I encourage my hubby to play basketball with our son in our mini-basketball in our front yard on weekends. It’s also a way for them to bond. I also allow my children to do domestic chores to ready them for the future, when they have families of their own,” Angeles de Leon-Cornejo shared.

Janice Villanueva, successful mompreneur and founder of Mommy Mundo, a community dedicated to supporting, inspiring and connecting moms, defined wellness as “not just being physically healthy but also includes maintaining a healthy mind and spirit.“

At home, Villanueva stressed, it is important to provide an environment that supports these wellness goals. Her tips include choosing products that do not contain or have less toxins and chemicals. She also mentioned the importance of regular cleaning of furniture because for her, dust is an enemy of physical and emotional wellbeing, as well as decluttering her home three or four times a year.

When it comes to eating healthy, Villanueva shared that she sits down with her cook and educates her on using healthy ingredients and methods of cooking. She also talked about the importance of reading product labels “because i want to know what is going into our bodies and our plates” and trying to go organic when she can.

Along with these wellness tips, Electrolux also launched their latest appliances with features to promote better health in the home.

Plastering Personality: The Pleasure Of Creating For Your Own Home Space

Design is something that’s resoundingly important when it comes to creating a home that you love, one that reflects your personality and highlights all of the little quirks and niches you carry in your soul. It often doesn’t take much time at all to find something to decorate our homes that we enjoy, but sometimes, we feel like our space is missing that certain ‘je ne sais qoui.’

While initially seeming like a roadblock to the perfect home, this is actually the time where you have the biggest opportunity for exploration. In order to fully identify what you want, you have to create it. This can be one of the most important undertakings you will ever embark on when it comes to sorting your beautiful home from lovely to stunning.

What follows is a list of home items you can create yourself that might help stamp your personality that little bit more on the home you occupy and cherish.

Create Artwork Yourself

Decking out your walls with the next Banksy or original Picasso is a fantastic endeavour, but sometimes it might not be the right fit for you. In order to fully apply yourself to your living space, creating your own artwork might be something that makes your move in that much more special.

It could be as simple as dabbing a wall of your living room with the multi-colored painted handprints of your family, or a painting of a local landscape you’ve done in your spare time. It’s easy to desire a home that’s filled with all of the modern luxuries and decors, but putting some good old fashioned heart into things can be a reward in itself.

Craft Wooden Furniture

Woodworking is a joy because once you realise how little effort you need to understand the fundamentals, you can be well on your way to making something of value. Crafting an object using hand tools will eschew the cost of a workshop setup. This doesn’t mean you have to create a four poster master bed just yet, but putting a simple table or box for storage together can lend you some credibility when you claim your home is your home.

Not all of us have the time, energy or even ability to learn how to craft furniture though, and sometimes more specialist areas like outside decking require more of a professional touch. In order to communicate your wishes with a reliable and talented service, consider using specialists who do decking DIY projects – technical data sheets.

Identify Colors That Please You

This is more important than you think. In order to fully appreciate the range of areas in your home consider trying to find what colors best reflect your personality. Are you a relaxed minimalist? White and light blues might be the best for you. Are you a jazzy, soulful personality? Oranges, reds and yellows are for you. Decide what style works for you and check out what arrangements you can make.

If you have a family, consider having an informal meeting and decide what everyone likes. Maybe your four-year-olds suggestion of ‘unicorns everywhere’ can be taken with a grain of salt, but for the most part identifying what makes your family tick and finding some way to reflect that in your home will make it that much more of a loving living space.

Small Bedroom, Deep Impact

If we’re honest, most of us would absolutely love to have a big bedroom. I for one, would love to have a spacious bedroom considering we co-sleep with kids. But the reality of our financial situation means that it probably isn’t going to happen. At least, not yet. As a result, we keep our eyes peeled for ways to make the most of the small bedrooms that we have.

Check out these bedroom decorating ideas for small bedrooms that will have a deep impact.

Lighten Up Your Palette

Fashion star Andrew Gn lives right in the middle of Paris. Despite the fact that he’s doing rather well for himself, not even he is able to afford the space for a luxurious bedroom in his particular part of town. As a result, he’s had to get creative to make the most of the space that he has.

On the floor of his bedroom is a 1950’s Swedish rug with quintessential Nordic charm. Above that are two nightstands, designed by Benoit Langlade. And on top of those are two 1970s lamps with gold bases. The rest of the room, including the walls, the upholstery on the Danish armchair and the bed sheets are pure white, designed to evoke a sense of space.

Fill Your Bedroom With Collectibles

If you’ve got a small room, but you’re not interested in making it feel bigger, you can still create an impact by doing something unusual. A collector from New York, for instance, decided to fill his room with as many exciting items as he could from his travels in the Orient. Practically every square inch of the room is home to one strange artifact or another.

Use Earthy Tones

Living in downtown New York is cramped at the best of time. But many designers from the city give their apartments a feeling of space by including Earthy tones, like brown, dark green and black.

Minimalist beds, as exemplified by the designer beds by Cuckooland, are also essential to help avoid making the room appear too cramped. The lines of the bed should be as simple and as elegant as possible, and it should be draped in warm, cozy linens.

Saturate The Walls

Lorry Newhouse, a fashion designer from England, was asked to work on a small attic bedroom in an old cottage in Southampton, a city on the south coast of Great Britain. She decided that the room needed a bit more “oomph” and so she began drawing up designs using whimsical patterns all over the walls, ceiling, windows and bed clothes. Eventually, she decided on using curtains, wallpaper, and bed skirts from Rose Cummings to create a complex, blue-patterned design, giving the bedroom an eclectic atmosphere.

Add A Canopy

The problem with many bedrooms is that they lack a main event. There’s nothing to draw the gazer’s attention to one particular point or another. French homes, however, regularly make use of a canopy over the bed, designed to make the bed feel more important than it looks when it’s situated in such a small room. Canopies also help to add height to rooms that are small.
