Valor Chocolate 1379207_10202135930501057_674565434_n fashionAtetheLawyer

Over 130 years of passion for chocolate and a voyage of over 12,000 miles to select three of the best cacaos in the world… that is the secret hiding behind the boundless pleasure experienced upon tasting a piece of Valor Chocolates. Pure chocolate, chocolate with Mediterranean Marcona almonds, hot chocolate, chocolate mousse, handmade and signature bonbons… Valor Chocolates’ palette of flavors is immense. This international brand, present in over 50 countries, makes all its bars in its facilities in Villajoyosa, Spain.

The result: the leading Spanish brand in the chocolate industry, producing over 13 million tons of sweets each year. That’s tons of pleasure!

Valor Chocolate 537770_10202136025623435_1749514655_n fashionAtetheLawyer

Valor Chocolates’ history is defined by a passion for a single product: the best chocolate. Behind this passion, we find a family of master chocolatiers who set up factory in 1881 led by Valeriano López Lloret, founder of the brand. He gave a name and personality to what has become the leading Spanish company in the chocolate industry and whose prestige has extended far beyond its borders.

The Innovation Behind the Pleasure…

The pleasure that lies in each bite of Valor Chocolates is achieved, in part, by its commitment to innovation, one of the company’s fundamental pillars. Innovation that unites with tradition to amaze the most discerning palates. This year the brand has presented its new range of sugar-free bars, which are now sweetened with stevia, a natural sweetener derived from a plant originating in South America that is 15 times sweeter than sugar.

The sugar-free bars come in a broad range that is ideal for chocolate lovers who are watching their figures or need to control their sugar intake. They retain all the flavor and pleasure of the brand’s chocolate—without the sugar. They also come in an unbelievable array of sugar-free offerings: Dark; 70% Dark; Dark with Whole Marcona Almonds; Dark with Whole Hazelnuts; Dark with Chocolate Mousse Truffle; Milk Chocolate; Milk Chocolate with Whole Marcona Almonds; Milk Chocolate with Whole Hazelnuts; Milk Chocolate with Hazelnut Truffle Filling. They’re all amazing!

Finding the Right Mix

004a1

“The most important thing to remember is that you can wear all the greatest clothes and all the greatest shoes, but you’ve got to have a good spirit on the inside. That’s what’s really going to make you look like you’re ready to rock the world.”
— Alicia Keys

Life is not as easy as it used to be and we now all find ourselves always trying to catch up with the pace of life. We often find ourselves attempting to balance our career, hobbies, relationships, and aspirations, but how do we know if we have the right mix?

Sometimes we feel it in our gut, but other times, it’s our daily regimens that tell us if we have the right mix. If the day starts off smoothly, that’s an instant energy booster for us to get through anything. So, start your day right with Optimo’s 3+3 Coffee Mix.

OPTIMO LOGO

Optimo offers a premium and healthy coffee mix sweetened with Suchero instead of the usual chemical or artificial sweetener we often come across. The Suchero coco sap in Optimo is a branded coconut sap sweetener that is drier than most coconut sap sweeteners, allowing it to have a longer shelf life. It is also a 100% natural and organic coconut sap sweetener that creates the right mix with three herbal extracts, namely Gingko Biloba, Grape Seed, and Green Tea.

The strong brew of Optimo is enhanced by the caramel taste of the Suchero coco sap. As sweet as Optimo is with this healthy sweetener, Optimo doesn’t lead you to a sugar crash. The sweetener gives you the flavor you want, but with its “slow burning” properties, the energy released by the coconut sap is distributed over a longer amount of time, allowing your blood sugar to remain stable. Thus, Optimo is an ideal coffee drink for even the healthiest of health buffs.

Additional health benefits in the Optimo 3+3 Coffee Mix can be found in the three herbs present in the mix; the first being the Gingko Biloba herb known as the “mind and memory extract” which, as studies have showed, improves mental performance and mood. The second herb is the Green Tea herb which is recognized for its anti-oxidant properties as well as the increase of one’s metabolism. Lastly, there’s the Grape Seed herb known as the “beauty” extract with concentrated amounts of Vitamin E which repairs collagen and protects your skin from sun damage.

A good spirit inside is the result of what we take in, the more positive, and healthier the better. Especially now, fast-paced and multi-faceted are the best words to describe the lifestyle of today’s youth. Optimo’s 3+3 Coffee Mix is the Right Mix for you.

Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf makes Everyday Extraordinary

#EverydayExtraordinary

#EverydayExtraordinary

We all want lives that are filled with extraordinary experiences, but the reality is that most of the time life itself gets in the way. Work, errands, traffic, monetary issues, and other mundane details all seem to conspire to make more of our days tedious, unexceptional and often downright dreary.

CBTL 5 fashionAtetheLawyer

At The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®, we believe that extraordinary should be neither elusive nor inaccessible. It doesn’t have to be back packing in the French countryside or scuba diving in El Nido. A great book or movie can be extraordinary, so can a stimulating conversation with an old friend, and who doesn’t love a great meal?

CBTL 3 fashionAtetheLawyer

CBTL 10 fashionAtetheLawyer

CBTL 7 fashionAtetheLawyer

Certainly a meal in a restaurant with a tasteful, cozy ambiance and great customer service can be extraordinary too, especially if the dish is something different from anything out there, and all the more extraordinary for its distinctness. Throw in the most ideally-suited wine, a sinfully delicious desert, and a world-renowned cup of coffee, and you have not only a difficult-to-forget experience, but one that you’ll want to repeat as often as possible. Such an experience is what they aim to deliver at the 26th St. Bistro by The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®.

Anyway, curious about the CBTL Logo? as we go on talking I learned (Thank you so much Jaybee Chun and JV Roman for sharing) that the bean on top is the representation that in every coffee bean harvest, they only get the top 1% of the same size and shape of Pure Arabica beans  (which means it’s the best of the best kind) and the leaves under is the top two tea leaves and a bud ( take note, the most flavorful) that they’ll get from every set, which means you get the best of the best in a cup of CBTL Signature!

Its always worth the price, the taste and everything when you know the history of you are drinking or eating. Its like knowing and experiencing their culture.

I swear all of them are so good  and now my favorites , and before I forgot, I discovered their Anniversary Blend Tea, (make it Latte and you will love it more! ) Its a must try! As in!  thanks to the beautiful ladies Jaybee and JV for the reco.

It was one extraordinary night for us and I assure you that CBTL will make your #EverydayExtraordinary too.

The highlight of GARAGE Anniversary Ball reunites some of these past best-dressed men as well as this year’s group of fashion savvy personalities. The year’s best-dressed list includes Kean Cipriano, Robby Mananquil, Frank Magalona, Jigs Mayuga, Bang Pineda and Nix Pernia. August issue cover star and best-dressed awardee, Enchong Dee was present to kick off the night’s festivities, which was then capped with a fashion show directed by Robbie Carmona and sponsored by clothing brand, RRJ.

The theme of the evening was PUNK ROCK and guests were seen donning their leather jackets, studded belts, shiny boots and spiked accessories. The August anniversary issue features Enchong Dee in a special fashion editorial interpreting this year’s motif. The issue is dubbed as a collector’s item because it comes with a special commemorative issue featuring the past best-dressed shot specifically for the issue. Also included are unpublished photos from the magazine’s five-year history.
