Everyday items made safe for the environment

The advent of fast-food chains all around the world spawned the proliferation of every day items like tableware and other table utensils that are made out of petrochemical-based plastics that can be used while dining and then thrown away that easily.
Most of the time, many people even buy these plastic utensils from the supermarket, thinking that they don’t have to worry about washing them since they’d easily end up in the waste basket. Simply throwing away plastic utensils like spoons, forks, knives, drinking glass is oh-so convenient, but have you ever realized the harm it can do to the environment, especially since many of those items don’t break down since they are non-biodegradable?
Focusing on research and development of natural waste plant-based materials to replace petrochem-based plastics, JuTian Cleantech Co. Ltd. came up with tableware such as spoons and forks, straws, drinking tumblers and other lifestyle accessories that are not only sturdy and light but are also completely compostable and biodegradable that it won’t hurt the environment.
Their products are made out of renewable materials and are naturally compostable such as leftover plant fiber that would have been thrown away. These agricultural by-products come from either bamboo fiber, sugarcane pulp or “bagasse,” or even coffee grounds, then sun-dried, chopped and shredded into powder then modified to make it compostable and completely biodegradable. JuTian products are guaranteed to break down in a backyard in just 12 months.
JuTian, which established the “100% ZHI (/Plant/) brand in 2018, with “reuse of waste” as its core brand value, specializes in environment-friendly technologies that can develop compostable products so that the Earth’s limited resources can be recycled and sustained. This helps create a friendly economic and industrial system while implementing the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly SDG 12 (“Sustainable Consumption and Production”) and SDG 13 (“Climate Action”) to create carbon-reduced and sustainable life for everyone.
With JuTian, creating better alternatives to plastic ware for lifestyle use is no mean feat, but when the environment is talking because it needs to be taken care of by reducing—or removing—harmful plastic wastes, JuTian listened, and they listened very well.

As a generation that grew up with technology, members of Gen Z have naturally developed a knack for content creation, with many going on to achieve massive fame on various social media platforms. They’ve shared aesthetic photos on Instagram, showcased their lives on YouTube, and flaunted their wacky side on TikTok. Many have found viral success through dance challenges, comedic skits, or mini-vlogs, proving just how creative and talented this generation is when it comes to content creation.
While Gen Z seems to have an innate eye and love for content creation, it is still a competitive game to level up on social media. To keep up, here are a few tips that can easily be done using a reliable smartphone packed with features that are sure to help everyone create more awesome content.

Seize the light. Content creation usually starts with finding ideal topics and visuals that most Gen Zs can relate to. Whatever topic you decide to go with, it’s imperative that content is taken in the highest quality possible. One of the secrets to do this even with a smartphone is finding the perfect lighting. Good lighting puts the subject in focus and even sets the tone and mood. The golden hour, or the time just after sunrise or before sunset, gives a warm, soft light that elevates photo and video footage. For any other time, adjusting the exposure, or amount of light, can make any shot stand out.
Keep it clear and steady. Sharing moments in life through content creation, whether going on an adventure, fully enjoying epic sing-along moments, or even dancing to the latest trending sounds should not be hindered by worries of getting blurry shots. While stability can make or break a shot, keeping the footage clear and steady won't be difficult if the smartphone has great stabilization features that takes the hassle away from making content Another easy tip: record with both hands for even steadier footage!
Get creative with effects and transitions. Extend all the real-life fun and creativity to high-quality videos by adding effects like slow-mo, time-lapses, and other trending filters. While there are so many editing apps that every creator can have in their arsenal, it also helps if the smartphone you use has a wide array of filters and other creative features to choose from.
Try shooting with different angles. Although life is more than what the eyes can see, seeing the world from various angles captured with a smartphone can give a unique view of any moment. Some creators shoot content with their smartphones upside down to show a different perspective, plus, it is easier to maneuver the smartphone and press controls this way.

Have a reliable smartphone buddy. More recommendations can be added to the list, but having a reliable smartphone that can keep up with and accompany Gen Zs to all of life's experiences and adventures is definitely essential to up their content creation game.

Selfies and TikTok videos are also upgraded with the 32MP Front camera. A bokeh effect can blur the background so the subject is the star of the content.

Best Tips for a Great Start to the Day

There is nothing better than waking up and having a great start to the day. When you have a good morning, that feeling carries you throughout the day, leading to a better overall day, increased happiness levels, and usually higher productivity levels, as well. But, some people might think that you don’t have control over how you feel in the morning. While I agree on some level (sometimes, you just wake up and feel bad), I disagree for the most part. Why? Because with a few tips and tricks, I think that every day can be great…and it starts with your morning. How you get the day started. With that being said, here are a few of my best tips for a great start to the day. I hope you get value out of these tips and can incorporate them into your morning! 

Wake up early

Waking up early is tough to do at the moment, but once you wake up, have a great breakfast and some tea or coffee, you will feel great starting your day off earlier. To put it simply: there is not enough time in the day. To really feel accomplished, waking up early is essential. It allows you to do things that you would not normally have time for, no matter what it is. Working out, cleaning your house a bit, focusing on yourself and having time to shower, do your skin care routine, do your hair, etc. You can fit so much in during the early morning hours and a lot of the time, if you choose to start your work day early (if you work), you will find that you are much more productive in the morning when everything around the house (or workplace) is still quiet. While waking up early is not always easy, I promise that it will start your day on the right side of the bed!

Simple breakfast to start the day

Make a great breakfast and don’t forget your supplements

The #1 way to have a great start to the day is by eating a nutritious breakfast, drinking at least 1 full glass of water (preferably even more), and taking your supplements. Try to have a balanced meal so that your blood sugar is regulated - this should consist of a lot of protein (eggs, sausage, etc.), good fat (butter, avocado, etc.), and healthy carbs (like fruit or sourdough bread). Choosing good options will fuel you throughout the day, so when you choose between a sausage cheese biscuit from McDonalds vs. a green smoothie and a couple of free range eggs at home, you are choosing how you want to feel throughout the day. Make a great choice, whenever possible! 

Get dressed

Even if you are just working at home that day, wake up and great dressed. You will feel so much better doing this compared to rolling out of bed and staying in pajamas all day long. When you choose an outfit, think practical, but also think about what makes you feel great. Choose based on those two things!

Outsource where you can

Remember: you do not have to do it all. Outsource when you can! This goes for your work life AND your personal life, as well. Outsourcing can help you get things done faster, better, and more efficiently. There are some things that probably wouldn’t be smart if you did outsource, but outsourcing projects that are hard for you to do, too time consuming, or projects that you don’t know how to do is such a smart decision. For example, if you needed help moving, you would want a company that was professional and reliable, such as Star City Services. They are Roanoke long distance movers that go the extra mile for their clients. If you need help with ANY heavy lifting, call them to help you outsource the project and save time + effort.

Create routine

While routines can sometimes leave you feeling stagnant after a while, they can also be very useful. It can create structure and it can help you thrive - in the mornings, or throughout the week. For example, creating a morning routine that goes something like this could help a lot: Wake up, brush teeth, chug a glass of water and eat an avocado toast, workout for 30 minutes, shower, do your hair, chug more water with your supplements, and head out the door for work. If you missed any of those steps, you might feel a little more “bleh” about your day, but if you did each step each morning, you know that it will make you feel great. Your morning routine should include everything that helps you thrive!

Pan Seared T-Bone Steak

Last night, when I was considering what to do for dinner, I almost forgot that we have frozen T-bone steak pieces. I did not add salt or pepper while the steak was thawing; instead, I rubbed it with dried rosemary and oregano. 

The T-bone and porterhouse are steaks of beef cut from the short loin. Both steaks include a "T"-shaped lumbar vertebra with sections of abdominal internal oblique muscle on each side. Porterhouse steaks are cut from the rear end of the short loin and thus include more tenderloin steak, along with a large strip steak.Wikipedia

I also made my incredibly easy-to-follow recipe for mashed potatoes, which I also cooked ahead of time. About a kilogram of quartered, peeled potatoes were cooked until incredibly tender. When it was finished, I mashed it and added some melted, salted butter and freshly ground black pepper to a bowl. I made the gravy with the steak's oil trimmings and then added butter, flour, and water to get the right consistency. 

To add a nutty flavor to the side dishes, I blanched carrots, beans, and maize before drizzling sesame oil over them. 

A tasty supper was served!

First time to try Nabe Izakaya Hotpot at SM Olongapo City Central


It was my first time at Nabe Izakaya Hotpot Restaurant when I met up with my mommy friend, her kids and my daughter for lunch last Saturday at SM Olongapo City Central. I'm delighted to share with you my impressions of the cuisine and service.

We arrived at precisely noon; the restaurant was not full; only a few people were seated. As you enter the eating area, it appears dark and uninviting. They must have been attempting to save energy, haha.

You couldn't view the left side of the eating room because it appears to be blocked by tables and chairs; however, I was unable to check by going around the dining space.

There weren't many employees present at first, but as time went on, more employees arrived for their shifts. Throughout our entire stay, only one male employee attended our tables. He paid close attention to us and periodically asked if there was anything else he could do to help.

Instead of the unlimited grill, which doesn't offer beef slices, we went for the hotpot deal, which included unlimited meat, Nabe balls, vegetables, eggs, noodles, and rice along with two choices of soup (we picked TanTan spicy soup and I forgot the other one). The cost of this limitless hotpot lunch is P588 per person. If I were to compare it to other unlimited restaurants I have been to, I would say it was average for the price and the type of meat they serve.

Have you been to any Nabe Izakaya Hotpot restaurant, how was your experience? Let me know on the comment section and let's exchange thoughts about it. 

Enjoy the rest of the week!

Collagen makes up about 80% of the skin and is a crucial element for building proteins. But by the time one turns 25, the skin begins to lose this key element. As the skin loses more collagen over time, it becomes harder for the skin to stay smooth and plump.

For decades, global beauty brand Avon has innovated with technology that set the benchmark for skincare. This year, the company’s latest innovation is the breakthrough skin-care product Anew Renewal Serum, which promises healthier and future-proof skin in just 7 days.

The Anew Renewal Serum harnesses the power of Protinol™️, a world-exclusive formula that works way quicker, gentler, and more effective than retinol, the previous benchmark in the category. Protinol™️ is designed to strengthen the skin’s foundation with a unique double collagen boost, restoring two types of collagen—collagen 1 and collagen 3, also known as baby collagen, that allow these small building blocks to bind together more efficiently. Working together with niacinamide, the Protinol™️ in the Anew Renewal Serum helps restore baby skin in just 7 days, along with 7 powerful skin benefits—fine lines reduced, firmer and smoother-looking skin, more radiant glow, minimized pores, and stronger-feeling and more resilient skin.

A clinical efficacy test conducted among women aged 40 to 65 years old reveal 100% proven results showing an improvement in at least one of these benefits after using Anew Renewal Serum. What you do now affects your future—make preventative measures with Anew Renewal Serum as early as now before lines become visible, helping you future-proof your skin.

Still don’t believe it? We dare you to put it to the test! Register at to get a free sample and start your journey to become the next face of Avon Anew. To shop, contact your Avon rep or visit and experience your best skin in just 7 days.
