A Year With Belo Baby

Fact: Half of the things I use on myself are actually baby products. 

A year ago, I got to know the Belo Baby brand, and ever since then their products have been a staple on my room and bathroom shelves. I love them so much that I’ve shared them with others – My son, my mom, even an aunt in the US. I’ve also given the gift of Belo Baby a few times to my new goddaughter, Luna. It’s so nice having an actual baby to share baby products with! My kiddo kasi has recently moved up to the realm of big boy products already.

There are two things I absolutely love about the Belo Baby line – Everything smells so good, and the products are 100% all-natural, and contain zero harmful ingredients. Not necessarily in that order.

Have you tried these yet? If not, you SHOULD!

The soap is super mild, and doesn’t at all leave skin feeling dry or itchy. The hair and body wash is really easy to rinse off, and actually works on both hair and body. I know, I tested it myself. Lol. We all agree at home that this is the best, best, best among the products in the Belo Baby bath line.

Bonus: Both the soap, and the hair and body wash produce a very light lather, which, I’ve noticed, is common in products that are made without harmful chemicals.

I use the lotion, too. Now believe me when I say I hate using lotion. I hate the sticky feeling it usually leaves on the skin. There’s none of that with Belo Baby lotion. Buti nalang because, as a fully-functioning housewife with chores like laundry and dish washing, I now need to use lotion on a regular basis.

Their tagline says it all: โ€œCrafted with care for the most delicate skin, for the most meticulous moms.โ€

I’m so sold on how good these baby bath products are. Not only are they gentle enough for the most sensitive skin, they’re also all-natural and safe to use at any age. Best of all, they smell awesome, exactly how I think a clean baby ought to smell.

I said earlier that I’ve shared these bath goodies with my two-month old niece, and now I can’t wait to see and sniff her after she’s freshly washed with Belo Baby.

So obviously I like to give the gift of Belo Baby. And because they are celebrating their first birthday this month, Belo Baby is gifting three of my readers (yes, you guys!) with a nice little baby bath care package. I’m so excited for you to try their soap, hair and body wash, and lotion on your little ones!

Here’s what you need to do to join:

  1. Follow me on Instagram because I will be announcing the winners there.
  2. Like and follow Belo Baby on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook since it’s their birthday. 
  3. In the comments section, greet Belo Baby a happy first birthday.

I will be drawing three random winners from all those who leave greetings. You can do so from today, March 17, until March 23. Winners will be announced next Friday, March 24 on my IG.

Good luck, guys! And happy first birthday, Belo Baby!

This Bookworm Loves Buqo + A Giveaway

I am a proud bookworm. I mean, the fact that I’m part of a book club says that loud and clear, right?

I’ve only just recently discovered the joys of digital reading. Ever since MrC gifted me with my Kindle a couple of mother’s days ago, it’s had a permanent space in my purse. I remember, during the first few weeks, how happy I was that my bag was lighter without a book in it, and yet I had so many titles with me all at once. The one downside to the reader that I have is that I can’t read magazines or picture books on it because the display is not in color. 

And then came Buqo.

I recently received this amazing opportunity to try out a new app called Buqo. I jumped at the chance because it meant that I could finally see my favorite Yummy Magazine in digital format. Haha, yes, that is really my primary reason for doing the review! Now, as you know, I don’t own a tablet and my phone is super low tech. I actually had to borrow my dad’s iPad just so I could install the app. Boy, was it worth it!

As I was browsing through Buqo, I discovered one other advantage it has over my current reader – LOCAL TITLES. There are a few books that I have been wanting to read that I just couldn’t get on Amazon. Lo and behold, I found them all on Buqo! That’s because Buqo is basically an online Filipino bookstore. They even have Adarna Children’s Books, Precious Hearts Romances and Pugad Baboy! It’s Pinoy bookworm heaven, I tell you.

Easy Purchases + Easy Navigation

Now, I have to tell you that I am an iDummy. I don’t really know how to use an iPad,simply because I’ve never tried to before. Surprisingly though, Buqo was simple to install, and registering an account was easy also. After browsing for a bit, I found what I wanted and added them to my account.

Now here’s a perk for Android app users, and for those of you who are buying books through the website. If you don’t have a credit card, you can actually pay for your book or magazine purchases through online banking or over the counter bank payments. Isn’t that so convenient? Plus, with just one account, you can use Buqo and access your entire library on up to 7 devices


Early Bird Freebies

Since Buqo is still relatively new, there are still a lot of freebies being offered when you sign up, such as certain magazine titles. Also, when you sign up, you are given access to the Buqo newsletter. You then get informed first about new content, upcoming promos and special offers. 

PLUS, since I am also super happy with my Buqo experience, I want to share the happiness with you guys. I am giving away a 3-month subscription of any summit media magazine to 5 blog readers. Note that there are three mandatory steps that you absolutely, positively MUST accomplish in order for your entry to be considered valid.

  1. Download the app.
  2. Register a Buqo account – this is necessary for you to claim your prize
  3. Follow Buqo on Facebook and Twitter

Of course, there are a few more things that you can do to gain additional points, but I’m sure you know that already. Everything you need to do to join ca be found in the Rafflecopter widget below. Giveaway runs from May 23 to June 5, 2014. Winners will be announced on June 7.

FINE PRINT: The winners will be forwarded to the Buqo team and they will be in charge of sending you your prizes. Kk?

Good luck, and happy reading everyone! 

Announcing the Winner of a Fabulous Taal Vista Hotel Staycation!!!

MrsC Loves Taal Vista Hotel

After reading, re-reading and re-re-reading all of the wonderful entries for my Taal Vista Hotel giveaway, I was stuck with a 10-way tie for the person who I felt best deserved the getaway. I re-re-re-read each entry of the 10 ladies I had picked, and still couldn’t decide who to choose, so I called on my assistant for some help.

First, we wrote down all ten names on pieces of paper. Scratch paper yan, ha! Save the trees! Continue reading Announcing the Winner of a Fabulous Taal Vista Hotel Staycation!!!
