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.

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.

TechnoMarine’s Top of The Game Faces

TechnoMarine

It’s Time: Their Moment has come

Everyone who aspires for greatness carries deep within their hearts the belief that their time will come. Regardless of the field they wish to establish themselves in, the humble beginnings they staff off with, or the impact they hope to make, everyone longs for the day when they can say with an indubitable sense of knowing that they’ve “made it”.
I love to meet and talk to different kind of people, I want to know their stories no matter how good or bad is that, how successful or kinda-going-to-be-successful-in-time because its the reality, one learns from another.
As blessing- and passion and handwork- would have it, the following people are among the biggest names in their respective fields. Having grown in more ways that mere celebrity and fame, these individuals are the top of their game and their time is now. Ladies and gentlemen, Bianca Gonzalez, Kiefer Ravena, Phil Younghusband, and Heart Evangelista have arrived.

 

1381009_10202103032278622_1605732460_n

BIANCA GONZALEZ
Bianca Gonzalez is a TV Host, fashion magazine editor, and media personality whose voice resonates with the Filipino youth. Through her blog, her hosting, her Sunday lifestyle column, or the various talks she gives, she has become an opinion leader- an eminent force in media encouraging the youth to become active and involved. With so many projects on hands, she is continuously growing and shows no sign of stopping any time soon. The perfect mix of strength and femininity, Biance personifies TechnoMarine’s Cruise Ceramic line. Though Ceramic has a smooth and sensual exterior, its precise craftmanship ensures its strength and durability but with a beautiful finish- much like the strong female voice that is Bianca.

 

KIEFER RAVENA
Kiefer Ravena is a young basketball player for the Ateneo Blue Eagles, whose exceptional skills and performance on the court have earned him nicknames such. As “The Phenom” or “Blue Mamba”. Though only a junior in college, Kiefer’s basketball resume includes playing for the nation team in 2011’s SEA Games, Rookie of the Year in his freshmen year, as well as two UAAP championships so far. For all he has helped achieve for the Ateneo community, he has become more than just a star player but a school hero, inspiring hope for another championship title. AN unstoppable force on the court and student slash homegrown celebrity off it, Kiefer epitomizes the Steel Evolution watch- TechnoMarine’s next generation steel chronograph that features colored sub dials against a cool steel face as well as TechnoMarine’s signature interchangeable strap system, making it versatile enough to suit any occasion. A watch that’s sporty yet fits in a smart environment- perfect for a college basketball hero.

PHIL YOUNGHUSBAND
Phil Younghusband is arguably the biggest name in the Philippine football, offering his talents to the Philippine Azkals and the Loyola Meralco Sparks Football Club. It was during his time with the Azkals that football really started to gain a following in the country. In order to further plant the seeds of its growth, Phil and his brother put up the Younghusband Football Academy to enhance the skills of young Filipino footballers. Like many professional players, his following is not limited to the die-hard football fans that flock to pubs to watch games; one of the country’s favorite faces, this British Filipino has sparked the interest of the female fans as well. An athlete and a heartthrob, nothing suits Phil better than TechnoMarine’s Black Reef Collection- a masculine, oversize watch full of energy and testosterone. Drawing inspiration from one of the best diving sports in the world, the Black Reef collection features the vibrant colors of the underwater spectacle and is the perfect water-resistant, high-powered luxury sport watch for diving and all kinds of adventure. The Black Reef is the watch for the trailblazers- like Phil, who has begun to make waves in Philippine Football.

HEART EVANGELISTA
Though Heart Evangelista has been in the show business scene for over a decade, her career is as colorful as ever. An actress, TV host, singer, VJ, and commercial model, Heart has dabbed in many creative outlets and found success in all her endeavors. The celebrated star has grown up in front of the camera and her fans, from the sweet girl-next-door to a full-fledged actress with prestigious awards under her belt. Much like Heart’s point in her career, the Cruise Treasure Quest with Diamonds of TechnoMarine brings a new twist to an old favorite. Following the success of the Cruise treasure timepieces, the Treasure Quest with the Diamonds ups its predecessor with its luxury elements such as Mother of Pearl, pink gold, white diamonds and blue sapphires- the glitz and glamour of which will sweep you into a fantasy. An artiste who paves her own path, Heart holds her own as she embarks on the treasure quest to success.

 

1381030_10202103032398625_194935753_n

At the heart of these awe-inspiring stories is the underlying fact that their time came while doing what they loved. Pure passion,and determination is the key to the endless hardworking power that drives everyone, you’ll see success cant be too far round the corner. Its not the fame, power or money, but its the accomplishment and the fulfillment that you made through your decision in that certain time that made an impact for who you are today.

MAKING MEGA: September’s Biggest Fashion Party

MakingMega DSC_0531 fashionAtetheLawyer

Fashion documentaries, like fashion itself, are aspirational. They will let you know what’s happening behind every detail of the pages of the magazine, the people inside it, the stories and ups and downs that is still fashionable.
I really love watching Fashion documentaries; it gives the viewer a pass to view in general what they are working for and how they are putting every effort in a full beautiful page. It’s about passion, dream and success in fashion.

In the Philippines, (adding to the many firsts of MEGA) a Fashion documentary of the issue cleverly titled #MakingMEGA – Anne Curtis in South America, a 45-minute video of the story and creation of a record-breaking magazine masterpiece directed by One Mega Group’s TV100 Head Michael Carandang. In the documentary, Anne Curtis and the editorial team traveled to the colorful South America in Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and in Machu Picchu, Peru.

MakingMega DSC_0488 fashionAtetheLawyer

I remember what Sari Yap, Mega EIC, “..more than anything in Making Mega, aside from producing beautiful pictures, was getting to know “beautiful” people.” It is indeed what this industry offers, beautiful not just physically but in every aspect of being beautiful, and it has to be the drive, the passion and the heart to really show its true beauty.

Host of the night G Töngi brought out her ever-dazzling energy, welcomed the fashionable crowd, and then called up on stage the MEGA team behind the historical 406-page fashion glossy.

The night would never be complete without honoring the girl on the cover of the biggest fashion magazine in the country.

Mega Magazine Editor-in-Chief Sari Yap made sure to give a more than worthy introduction for Anne Curtis to come up on stage and say a few words and share some of her experiences from the one-of-a-kind ‘Making MEGA’ trip.

Francesca Versace for BRICS Collection Launch 2013

BRICKSIMG_2704 FashionAteTheLawyer

BRIC’S, the internationally acclaimed 60 year-old Italian luggage brand, recently made the announcement that the BRIC’S – Francesca Versace collection called Travel Sense will debut in Asia here in the Philippines, specifically the BRIC’S Shangri-La Mall’s new East Wing store and in the SM Aura BRIC’S boutique before its launch in other Asian countries.

TRAVEL SENSE traces its origins from cooperation between Bric’s, a top-level testimonial of Italian style in the luggage and accessories market; and Francesca Versace, born in a family of fashion designers and a designer herself. The collaboration stems from an interaction between two different interpretations of travelling: Francesca, for who travel is a reason for life; and Bric’s, whose core-business has been founded on the words industria, valigeria, fine: industry, travel, luggage, and quality.

The collaboration between Francesca and Bric’s combines an interplay of different elements and strikes a perfect balance between technology, tradition, craftsmanship, functionality, quality, and fashion.

The collection of bags and accessories revolves around the theme of travelling which is re-interpreted through the recurring feature of a frame as an element that encloses an entire existence: dreams, desires, emotions and most especially moments that shape one’s life.

A frame – the overall theme selected by Francesca for the Bric’s FV_Bags collection – reflects her personality and her natural talent. It also symbolizes one’s life: dreams, wishes, emotions, and moments that are part of its history. Just like a photo, a place that is rooted deep in one’s heart can be ideally enclosed in a frame.

Attilio Briccola, BRIC’S commercial director said: “This partnership showcases the unmistakable style of Francesca Versace and the performance of reliable and durable materials, craftsmanship and avant garde technology that characterizes the BRIC’S brand.”

Brics Collage Brics 4 fashionAtetheLawyer

As the brand moves forward, BRIC’S continues its on-going progress with research, tradition, innovation, and functionality as the key words; and constant renewal aimed at harmonious combination of taste, style, quality, modernity and usage comfort as exemplified by not only the Francesca Versace collection but also the other collections like the Life, Life Pelle and the Pininfarina among others.

I can never forget Francesca Versace said to me when I’m taking photos for my blog that she can recognize me because of my green hair.

And when her mother ask me why my hair is green, I said, “My hair is naturally green, I just died my roots black” and she was laughing at what I said and She agreed.

It was a night full of show and surprises as they unveiled the Francesca Versace Collection and opened the store in a visually pleasing graphics show.
