TreeHugger: Saving the World One Writing Implement at a Time

We have been taught the importance of recycling in order to reduce the trash filling up our landfills.  And while we may still have a long way to go before we can truly be called an Eco-friendly nation, it is quite refreshing to note that there are companies who are taking that extra step in making our country more earth conscious.

TreeHugger is definitely one of them.

TreeHugger GelFriend, pencil and highlighter
TreeHugger is an eco-friendly brand that aims to save the world one writing implement at a time.  Their products include:

Gel pens made from recycled carton and biodegradable plastic which they christened the GelFriend (get it?),

TreeHugger's GelFriend

Pencils made out of old newspapers.

My photo really doesn't do this justice.  But if you can hold the actual product, you can really see the lines of rolled up broadsheets that make up this pencil's body.

Highlighters also made from the same materials as their pens.

And that's not all, folks!  Proceeds from every product purchase goes to Haribon Foundation to aid in the restoration of our trees and forests.  How cool is that?  =)

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
