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 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.

Currently, the brand continues to manufacture its entire “From Bean to Bar” range from its production plant in Villajoyosa, Spain. With over 235,000 square feet of state-of-the-art facilities, this factory produces 13 million tons of sweets each year. Bars and chocolate bonbons are exported to more than 50 countries, thanks to Valor Chocolates’ internationalization policy. This includes a major subsidiary in the United States, Valor Chocolates USA, Inc., that has been in existence for over a decade and is responsible for distributing its products throughout the Americas.

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!

Another significant innovation is the brand’s exclusive Philippine launch of Valor Hazelnut Spread that comes in regular and sugar free variants. It is made with 13% hazelnuts and its sugar free variant is a delectable treat to diabetics or on a diet.

Valor has a wide range of portfolio that are still to come to the Philippine market. It recently created the Dessert Range, keeping in mind all those who love to prepare professional desserts at home, providing the best products to achieve recipe perfection.

Another significant innovation is the brand’s special attention to food intolerances and its broad range of gluten-free products. Its Lactose-Free Milk Chocolate Bars with the same milk chocolate goodness is ideal for those who are lactose-intolerant. The impressive Professional Range of Valor Chocolates—a large portfolio of products made using the best selection of the brand’s cacaos and chocolates, targeting connoisseurs of the confectionary world, a market with the highest standards made up of confectioners, pastry chefs and chefs, among others.

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.

Get the Best for FLAWLESS Guaranteed Hygienic

Flawless guaranteed hygienic Flawless Guaranteed Hygienic fashionAtetheLawyer

Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Maxene Magalona and Divine Lee, say that one thing they all have in common (aside from being celebrity endorsers of Flawless) is their belief that cleanliness is the first step to achieving beautifully radiant skin.

“Aside from having really effective products and services, I want my skincare clinic to prioritize cleanliness. I mean, cleanliness is the first step to a healthy and beautiful skin, right? I’m really happy that Flawless puts hygiene as a top priority. I’ve been to their clinics countless of times and there’s not one visit when I did not feel special. I just really love Flawless.” Jasmine Curtis-Smith

“Aside from having really effective products and services, I want my skincare clinic to prioritize cleanliness. I mean, cleanliness is the first step to a healthy and beautiful skin, right? I’m really happy that Flawless puts hygiene as a top priority. I’ve been to their clinics countless of times and there’s not one visit when I did not feel special. I just really love Flawless.”
Jasmine Curtis-Smith

Think that all skin clinics are created equal? Think again.

If you’re a fan of treatments offered at skincare centers, chances are you’ve been to a few and thus know that—price points and interiors aside—they are far from being the same, especially so when we talk about the rituals done before, during and after treatments. Hygiene is of course an issue, and one that the country’s preferred clinic for face, body and medical services, Flawless, takes very seriously.

“We know that hygiene is key to avoiding infections and maintaining the overall wellness of the skin,” shares Rubby Sy, Flawless’ CEO. “Needless to say, you can’t give your patients beautiful skin without superior hygienic practices. For this reason, we’ve decided to further improve our sanitary practices to put them at par with hospitals.”

“I only have two requirements for my skin and body needs: First, I need to know that the products and services are medically-proven effective. Second, I need my skincare provider to be really really really clean—as in all aspects of the operation. Flawless was able to provide me both that’s why I’m very loyal to them.” Divine Lee

Divine Lee

From hand sanitizers that are strategically placed all over all its clinics (for everyone’s use)
to sterilized tools sealed in individual pouches, disposable headbands and towels stored in cabinets with UV lamp sterilizers, Flawless takes pride in employing the strictest sanitary protocols to ensure that each client that walks into their doors get the best service they deserve, in the safest environment that the company can provide.

“I’m very-O.C. when it comes to sanitation and all my friends and followers know that.  I always have a bottle of alcohol and wipes within reach. Of course, I want my skincare provider to be the same way--O.C. Clean. That’s why for my skincare needs, I only trust Flawless.” Maxene Magalona

Maxene Magalona

Facial treatments and medical peeling are among the flagship treatments of the famed skincare center. According to Rubby Sy, Flawless boasts of its unique advantage of having a core of full-time doctors working as medical aesthetic professionals for the company. “Through them, we’re able to provide thorough consultation, personalized service, and top-notch treatment to our patients. The fact that our practitioners undergo continuous training and are experienced with the latest advancements in dermatological technologies further ensures that our patients get the care and treatment that they deserve.”

Every day, before and after operations, every Flawless clinic is thoroughly cleaned by staff to ensure that clients are able to enjoy a safe and relaxing environment. The company requires that at day’s end, all machines must be thoroughly cleaned, bed sheets replaced with fresh ones, and tools and towels placed inside hot cabinets with UV lamps.

Aside from this, Flawless also employs the latest and most advanced dermatological machines including Fractional Needling Therapy Guns, LightSheer Diode Laser Hair Removal, and Velasmooth program, among others. “Our tagline says it all. We are powered by Skin Professionals that’s why every step we take—no matter how big or small—is based on the principle of integrating high levels of professional practices with medically-sound solutions. From our doctors, receptionists and aestheticians down to our doormen, everyone in the company works by and lives by this core principle of giving clients nothing but the best care,” Sy ends.

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.

PUB Burrito by Chefreneur Kia

PUBburrito at mercatoDSC_0144 fashionAtetheLawyer

PUB Burrito (Pinoy’s Ultimate and Bestselling Burrito) is a business in the making. It has been conceptualized to further share to the market a different kind of burrito experience with a Pinoy twist. For those who have tried the dishes, PUB Burritwo is all about our two-way burritos.

I tell you, its worth more than your 70 or 80 pesos or your money back! :)

I tell you, its worth more than your 70 or 80 pesos or your money back! 🙂

Instead of the usual one filling, we are introducing a half-half filling concept. In this way, the customers will be able to enjoy the best flavors of both worlds. Aside from the two-way idea, the burrito filling will deviate from the normal rice and protein combination. Instead, we are substituting the rice with vegetables and some crispy treat. In this way, the satiety value of the food will be heavy enough but will lean more on the healthy side.

TeamPhil VS TeamJames: CLEAR DREAM MATCH

Clear Supremacy

Team James and Team Phil slated

This August 24th, The University of Makati, will be brimming with excitement as world-class talents battle for Clear Supremacy. Powered by Clear, the number one men’s shampoo brand, the biggest football all-star game in the nation shines brighter in its second year as World Cup champion Fabio Cannavaro and football legend Dennis Wise join James Youngusband, Phil Younghusband and the country’s top football talents.

Dennis Wise-fabio-canavarro-horz

After more than four weeks of voting Team James and Team Phil was decided last August 10th at the SM Megamall Events Center. With thousands of votes casted on the Clear Facebook page, the voting pool of 50 – consisting of Philippine Azkals, top United Football League players, University superstars and some local footballing celebrities – was trimmed down to 34, each one to be drafted by captains James and Phil Younghusband.
Clear Brand Manager, Drew Copuyoc said, “the rivalry this year is so intense. Throughout the four weeks both brothers were really gunning for that first pick.”

Clear Dream Match Draft 2013IMG_4081 fashionAtetheLawyer

Clear Dream Match Draft 2013IMG_4073 fashionAtetheLawyer

One unique facet of this year’s competition, however, is that it would be the fans that determined the first pick. Since July 3 fans have tirelessly supported their favorite team through digital participation – the reward being that the number one digitally active fan will get the chance to fly to Brazil with the Younghusband brothers in 2014.
Garnering more than 100 thousand online points, Team Phil was awarded the first draft pick. The Clear Dream Math draft consisted of three rounds. The first round saw James and Phil take turns in selecting their top five picks, Phil was given an extra pick for having won the matchup last year. In the second round, the brothers drew lots to complete their roster. Then in the last round, the brothers were each given one wild card pick. The wildcard pick could be any player either within the voting pool, or outside the voting pool.
The biggest headline, however, was that it would be football legends’ Cannavaro and Wise to select which team they would play for.

Vowing to help Team James gain revenge on younger brother Phil, Cannavaro chose to play on Team James. “Last year’s match was one sided, this year I want to help James even the score,” Cannavaro said regarding his selection.

Team James Players for the Round 1 are Yves Ashime, Jason De Jong, Misagh Bahadoran, Saba Garmaoudi and Oussenyou Diop.

For the Round 2- Roxy Dorlas, Chieffy Caligdong, Tony Toni, Nicolas Bolzico, Jonah Romero, Ian Araneta, Simon Greatwich, Andrew Santiago, Daniel Matsunaga, Slick Rick, Fabio Ide, Ref Cuaresma and Izzo.

Wise on the other hand selected Team Phil because of his desire to win. “Like Phil I love to win and I always love to score goals, and that’s the type of team I want to be associated with,” Wise said.
With the teams set, the battle for Clear Supremacy inches closer to completion.

This is the real world, and I admire the advocacy of the cause because I also believe that if we honed and mold the children good, our country will be a better place.

Let them experience a little glamour in their dreams to really be inspired by buying a good macaroons.

Its really good, I would say “IT IS THE PLEASURE OF HELPING.”
